NorCal NPL Champions League Preview: 2019
After a long break for high school soccer, league action is now back in Northern California as the NPL resumes this weekend with games all across the state for both the boys and the girls from the U14-U19 age groups. Culminating with the NPL Spring College Showcase at Davis Legacy Soccer Complex on May 18-19, the NPL features some of the highest level of play in the country with real stakes as each team’s standing for the following season is determined by how well they finish. While the boys Champions League is just now kicking off, the girls have already been at it since the beginning of fall after a switch to a yearlong calendar.
