The National Premier League (West) is expanding to include the 11-U and 12-U age groups in Fall 2019. These divisions represent the outgoing U.S. Soccer Development Academy age groups, as the NPL West member clubs are Development Academy standouts.
Ten boys clubs make up the league, and all ten are bringing their 11-U and 12-U age groups to the National Premier Leagues (NPL). These nationally recognized clubs have created a formidable NPL in the southern half of the state, now featuring 11-U through
17-U boys divisions that play NPL schedules and qualify to the ENPL postseason.
“We congratulate these clubs for coming together and expanding the NPL West,” said US Club Soccer CEO Kevin Payne. “This
expansion not only strengthens the league and the National Premier Leagues in general, but also gives the clubs control over
factors impacting player development.”
