High School soccer in Florida is sanctioned through the Florida High School Athletic Association ("FHSAA"). This is officially a Winter season from October through February.

FHSAA ranks all public and private schools by enrollment size every two years from Class 6A to 2A plus 21 Independent school; and then places the member schools in their respective districts with the guidance of each county athletic conference that each school is a member. 
 

FHSAA (12/19/07)
Class Size Enrollment Schools
6A 2,345 - 5,000+ 113
5A 1,783 - 2,344 108
4A 1,039 - 1,782 105
3A 454 - 1,038 68
2A 1 - 453 79
Independent N/A 21

In Broward County for example, the Director of the Broward County Athletic Conference ("BCAA"), Damian Huttenhoff, will first group schools as close together as possible for ease of travel and then by competitive ability so that each district has balanced competition.  There are more 6A schools in South Florida than there are in the northern part of the state, so there are more districts in the South than in the North. Some 6A schools in South Florida have over 5,000 students, so creating balance is a challenge. In the North there are more small schools.  Public and Private schools have no separate status in Florida. They all play for the same marbles in their respective classifications. Refer to the FHSAA Rulebook for specifics.

At the end of the season all teams compete in district competition. Winners advance to region and then the state Championship.

The two teams in district finals automatically advance to regional competition, regardless of who is district champion.   

The winner advances to a state region competition and the winners advance to the state championship competition. 

Throughout the course of the season, some high schools travel nationally to face the best competition in order to prepare for the state championship as well as to increase their standing in the NSCAA national poll. This is becoming more of an accepted practice amongst the best high school teams.  There is no National Championship for high schools at this time.  In Florida, the championship series consisting of district, regional and state competition is referred to as the FHSAA state championship series.  Outside of Florida many state high school associations offer Fall soccer only, so the NSCAA poll has two separate rankings for Fall and Winter soccer.
