Pinecrest Premier will be one of only 18 clubs in the state of Florida joining the Florida NPL league – http://www.nationalpremierleagues.com/florida-npl
The NPL is a national competition platform created to elevate and change the competitive youth soccer landscape by:
- extending developmental principles espoused by U.S. Soccer into more age groups and clubs
- linking competition with player development and identification platforms
- providing meaningful weekly competition culminating in the NPL Finals
NPLs are leagues unified under one national competition platform and based on a common technical framework.
More specifically, the NPL provides a platform:
- focused on long-term player development
- for the country’s top soccer clubs, allowing consistent, meaningful high-level games appropriately scheduled with higher training-to-game ratios and eliminate calendar congestion
- integrated with the id² Program, which includes Player Development Programs (PDPs) in select local markets, and that works closely with U.S. Soccer staff regarding player identification, and player and coach development
- designed and structured by the clubs, based on the needs of the clubs
- that provides an avenue for qualification for the NPL Finals
