Division 1
Division One is the premier level of play in the VSL. The goal is to provide the highest level of play managed through specific qualification criteria for team participation. Clubs and teams competing at this level will have a commitment that parallels this level of play. This may include a more rigorous training approach, a more competitive atmosphere, and a more extensive travel schedule.

D1 is the qualifying league for participation in Vermont Soccer Association (VSA) State Cup Championship that establishes the State Champion in each age bracket. Teams winning State Cup are required to participate in the US Youth Soccer Association (USYSA) Region 1 National Championship Series. Clubs entering teams in D1 should have the primary goal of representing Vermont in the Region 1 National Championship Series.
