CHARLESTON, S.C. (April 21, 2014) – After a strong debut in March of the inaugural NPL Showcase for elite boys teams from around the country, US Club Soccer has announced the addition of the first NPL Showcase for girls, slated for Dec. 31 - Jan. 2 in Palm Coast, Fla.
The girls’ NPL Showcase will feature teams in the U-15, U-16 and U-17 age groups. The event will be held at Indian Trails Sports Complex, with eight Bermuda-grass fields in an ideal, centralized location for competition. Numerous attractions are nearby, including the famous Florida beaches.
“Creating an NPL Showcase specific to girls was an obvious next step in growing the NPL,” Chris Baer, NPL General Manager, said. “We’re looking forward to hosting a great event at one of the best facilities in Florida.”
The NPL Showcase will present a great collegiate recruiting opportunity. The full-length games will pit elite teams from different regions of the country against each other – a valuable experience for college coaches and scouts to see players in new environments
Top-performing teams from the previous NPL season will be given first priority during the application process. Online applications will be available soon. For more information, please contact your respective membership services representative.
