NorCal Return to Play Applications Now Open!
NorCal Premier Soccer is looking forward to providing a safe return to soccer with NorCal Return to Play. These mini-league competitions will begin with competition #1 starting between March 6th and March 21st, based on a county meeting the updated State of California Youth Sports Guidelines (or stricter guidelines required by a county). Additionally, the start date for a county will also be determined by when clubs in the county are ready to begin. The events are available for U8-U19 teams of all levels, from NPL/Premier to Bronze. There will be extra flexibility in NorCal scheduling, rules, and procedures to ensure teams and clubs have a chance to participate.
Event #2 will start following Event #1 in a county. Teams may play in both events.
