NorCal State Premier Spring Division Qualification Procedure
The qualification procedure for spring division placement in the 2016-17 NorCal State Premier division has been finalized. Teams will earn spots in statewide spring divisions based on performance in their regionally based State Premier League fall divisions. The highest division, the State Premier Championship will crown the State Premier champion in each age group. The Championship winner in the U14-U17 age groups will earn automatic promotion into the 2017-18 NorCal NPL, while the runner-up will earn a playoff spot against an NPL 3 qualifier. The winner of the NPL/State Premier playoff will earn the final spot in the 2017-18 NorCal NPL division. Teams that don’t qualify for the Championship division will form the remaining State Premier League (SPL 1, 2 and 3) divisions based on where they finished in the fall standings.
