The United States Soccer Federation's State Soccer Associations are the local governing bodies of soccer in the United States. State Soccer Associations exist to govern all aspects of soccer in the United States. They are responsible for administering club and player registration as well as promoting development amongst those bodies and referees .

Most of the State Soccer Associations align roughly along state boundaries, although some of the more populated states have multiple soccer associations broken by geography (i.e. California, New York, and Texas).

The state ssoccer associations often host their own statewide cups and premier leagues for amateur outfits, often as a mechanism of regional qualification for the U.S. Open Cup competition.
