SoCal Premier is excited to announce the expansion of the NPL West league for the 2020/21 season. This league offers clubs a developmentally appropriate pathway for their teams and players. The season is played over a 9 month period where teams play each other home and away for the chance to represent the league at the US Club Soccer National Championships. The top team that qualifies in each age group U13 and above, will test themselves against other NPL qualifiers along with the top ECNL clubs from each conference nationwide.
