The Alaska Timbers join the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL)

The Alaska Timbers will enter a Senior Team into the 2020 UPSL Summer Season as part of the Last Frontier Conference. The AK Timbers Senior Team will be for AYSC youth players that are aging out of the youth game and provide a place for them to play as they transition into collegiate and/or adult levels of soccer.

The UPSL was formed in 2011 and currently includes more than 300 teams nationwide. The UPSL is the largest Pro Development League in North America. Each UPSL team is individually owned and operated and is responsible for maintaining UPSL National League minimum standards.

UPSL teams are eligible to participate in the U.S. Open Cup Qualifying Rounds through the league's affiliation with the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) and the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA).

"We have decided to go ahead with the 2020 UPSL team this season to continue a clear and present pathway for our homegrown players and local community players. As a club, we believe in the development and progression of our players and now they will be encouraged and guided to excel and embrace this valuable experience that will allow them to embrace another level of senior football" said Jo Reid, Technical Director, Anchorage Youth Soccer Club.

In the coming months, AYSC will be holding a spring tryout for the UPSL roster and the UPSL will be announcing its game schedule for the summer 2020 season.
