NPL POSTSEASON STRUCTURE

NPL GIRLS POSTSEASON
The NPL Girls Finals features the champions of NPLs across the country in U-13 through U-18/19 girls age groups. Teams play group games before advancing to knockout rounds to determine the NPL champion in every age group. Every year, NPLs compete throughout the year in their respective league competitions with their sights set on qualifying to the Girls NPL Finals.

NPL BOYS POSTSEASON
The boys post season is a two-stage competition for U-14 through U-17 age groups while it is a single stage competition for U-13 and U-18/19 age group.   Qualifying teams from each NPL member league come together to compete for NPL championships.  

U-13 and U-18/19 age groups participate in a single-stage post season. The U-13 age group ends their post season at each Playoff location with an East and West Champion. U-18/19 competition is held at the NPL Finals in July where a single champion is crowned. 

U-14 through U-17 teams will compete at their respective Playoff events, with the top 2 teams from each age group advancing to NPL Finals in July to compete against the top 2 teams advancing from the other Playoff.
