    Why Play NPL?

    NPL is the highest level of play offered to San Francisco teams.  In order for a club to be approved to play this top level of competition and league offered by US Club - NorCal, each member club must meet the top level criteria required.  This holistic review done by the NorCal board looks at an assortment of criteria with a primary focus the total number of high credentialed and qualified coaches, game and practice field quality and location, amount of practices offered per week, and quality of the players produced.   In addition to the Academy offering one of the highest level of coaching in the Bay Area, three trainings per week, contests vs the best teams in Northern California, and invites to some of the most competitive and highly selective youth tournaments on the West Coast, each NPL season for all SFEA boys and girls from the age groups of 2002- 1998 culminate in showcases played in front of college coaches.
