US Club Soccer administers and sanctions leagues throughout the country for various age groups, competitive levels and geographic sizes and areas. These league platforms are all created with similar principles and guidelines, and collectively provide a full competition spectrum for modern clubs:
The National Premier Leagues (NPL) provides a unified national developmental platform to various member leagues throughout the country.
The NPL’s mission is to facilitate more meaningful games, reduce travel and provide a pathway to postseason competition.
Learn more about the platform at usclubsoccer.org/npl.
US Club Soccer also sanctions hundreds of additional leagues throughout the country of various age groups (youth and adult), competitive levels and geographic sizes and areas.
Generally, these leagues include quality, local competition without significant travel or club commitments required. US Club Soccer affords the flexibility for decisions to be made that are in the best interest of the specific league, participating teams and players.
Primarily in-house or intramural in nature, rec programs benefit from easy registration and a reduced registration fee to go along with US Club Soccer’s philosophy of eliminating red tape and over-regulation. Rec players generally do not receive passcards as it is not expected they will travel.
In all other respects, rec programs have the same rights as all other US Club Soccer members, including insurance coverage, tournament sanctioning, etc.
US Club Soccer provides a vehicle through which clubs can offer lifelong soccer to their members.
