CHARLESTON, S.C. (May 11, 2016) - US Club Soccer is again inviting top National Premier Leagues (NPL) girls teams to make the NPL Showcase part of their competition calendar. The third annual event will take place Dec. 29-31, 2016 in Palm Coast, Fla.
The NPL Showcase features three age groups made up of the following birth years: 98s/99s, 00s and 01s. It will be hosted at Indian Trails Sports Complex in a competitive environment conducive to collegiate recruiting. During the 2015-16 event, more than 100 college coaches and scouts made the showcase part of their recruiting efforts.
“We look forward to welcoming the NPL’s best girls teams for the third consecutive year,” NPL General Manager Leo Garcia said. “This showcase is designed to not only provide an arena for college recruiting, but also to give teams an opportunity to participate in high-level games that will help them eventually contend at the NPL Finals.”
Applications will be available soon with preferential acceptance given to top-performing teams of the current and previous NPL seasons. The top four finishing teams from an NPL member league's previous season are automatically accepted. Please refer to nationalpremierleagues.com in the coming weeks for application details.
NOTE: The initial announcement marked the event dates as Dec. 31-Jan. 2, but it has since changed to Dec. 29-31.
