History of US Adult Soccer

 

On 26 August 1982, Chairman Milton Aimi called the first Annual Meeting of the Senior Division of the United States Soccer Federation. The Federation went through a reorganization that year and the Senior Division became a separate member entity and not just a division of the USSF. Over the years, the name changed to United States Senior Soccer Division to the United States Senior Soccer Association to the United States Amateur Soccer Association and to its present form, the United States Adult Soccer Association. Throughout those name changes, it always served amateur, adult soccer throughout the country. For many years, the Division/Association organized and was the keeper of cup competitions for men and women, including the US Open Cup, the second oldest continuous soccer cup competition in the world. While the organization is relativity young in comparison to US Soccer, its origin and those of its member state associations go back to the start of the Federation in 1913 and prior.

The lists below are those individuals who have served as Chair/Presidents of US Adult Soccer and as Directors of Region I.
