The boys club soccer season has not been a smooth process. With the global pandemic, the normal cross-country events hit a pause and even some states had a lengthy delay to kick off the campaign. 

With ever state in action now, there is a bit of normalcy, but intrastate competition is still not the normal. Playoffs are on the schedule for the leagues, but who knows what that will look like considering what the season has been like up until this point. 

The TopDrawerSoccer TeamRank, presented by Soccer Masters, takes a new look at the U18/19, U17, and U16 age groups in the boys club soccer world for the first update to the May edition to the club soccer team rankings.
