Today marks the start of a new era for the Girls program.    It is with great pleasure to announce that our Girls Program has been accepted to be part of the National Premier League.  All U12- U19 Blue girls teams will be playing in this league next season.

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

We on the board are committed to making this club the best in Miami-Dade and we can’t do it without you. We want to again thank you for your support and commitment to the Club as we continue to work to make it better.
