US Club is the governing body of ECNL / NPL / ENPL and future leagues run throughout the United States. The next level of US Club Soccer leagues is the NPL. The NPL provides a unified, club-based national developmental platform with the highest level of competition in its geographic areas which will host Pipelines Pre- ECNL, Black, Red, and Gold teams. “Anything Santino and I focus on has to be club centric and make sense for every team,” said Club President Sean Rush. “The showcases, league play, and opportunities for our Pre-ECNL (currently Black teams) Black, and Red teams will be elevated greatly with this platform. Our objective for the past 9 years has been to develop the highest-level players and it is now our job to place those players from all levels, at the best Universities” added Rush
Created to elevate and change the competitive youth soccer landscape based upon US Club Soccer’s fundamental principles, the NPL extends developmental principals espoused by the U.S. Soccer Development Academy into younger age groups and additional clubs, providing a platform for long-term player development.
