Beginning with the 2019-2020 competitive season, San Ramon FC will compete in two new Pre-NPL leagues for the U12 and U13 age groups.
As a current member of the National Players League (NPL) in the U14-U19 age groups, San Ramon FC Navy teams will be automatically placed into these two new Pre-NPL age groups.
NorCal Premier Soccer recently announced this modification to its competitive structure, forming two new Pre-NPL U12 and U13 age groups for the coming season:
“By providing Pre-NPL in the U12-U13 age groups, we hope to promote parity of competition & maintain a merit-based competition structure where clubs earn places in the top divisions through on-field performance, while also ensuring that we reduce unnecessary travel and maintain the high on & off the field standards expected of clubs/teams in the U14-U19 NPL divisions, as part of a healthy developmental process.”
As a result of this modification, more San Ramon FC club players will have access to higher levels of competition in Northern California. Youth players can further hone their skills and develop their game in these new, challenging competitive leagues.
