Given there were no matches involving top 10 teams last weekend, there's no movement in this week's rankings.

Last week, the focus was on the Under-15, 16 and 17 teams at the PDA Showcase, leaving the Under-14s and 18s idle.

Things change this weekend as the Under-14 squads are back in action, highlighted by the return of undefeated Real Colorado. The team was idle the past few months, largely due to the Colorado spring high school season, which ended last week.

Throughout the rest of the season, ESPNHS will offer a weekly glance at the top 10 teams in each age group. These rankings, indicative of the results of a team rather than a prediction of future outcomes, offer a sampling of some of the top talent in the game.
