2021-22 NorCal NPL Qualification Process
NorCal Premier Soccer is excited to announce the return of the NorCal NPL for the 2021-22 season. Due to the halt of the 2019-20 season and the cancellation of the 2020-21 season NorCal have created an NPL Qualification division as part of the 2021 Summer League. Applications for the NPL Qualification division will be open until Wednesday, May 26th. The NPL season will kick off on August 21st.
2021 Summer League Application
Teams interested in participating in the NPL Qualification division will apply via the NorCal Summer League application. The number of spots in the division are limited so not all teams will be accepted.
Ages: U14 (08) – U19 (03/04)
2021-22 NPL Qualifying
- Auto-acceptance NPL spots must be claimed by clubs by May 26th.
- All teams that participated in the 2019-20 NPL in the 04, 05 and 06 age groups were re-invited for 2021-22. Additionally, 07 and 08 first teams from NPL clubs are invited.
- NorCal will create NPL Qualification structure and schedule for each age group based on the number of teams accepted and the number of NPL spots available in a given age group.
- Teams that qualified for the State Premier Championship division in 2019-20 will be granted automatic entry into the NPL Qualification division.
- One a team qualifies for NPL through the NPL Qualification division, the team will sent the 2021-22 NPL Application to register for the event. Teams that qualify must still meet the NPL Coaching License standards to participate.
