Teams compete in 11-U through 19-U boys and girls age groups, and the competition will feature an innovative schedule to accommodate different high school seasons in the region.
Teams participating in the 11-U through 14-U ranks are:
|ASE||Eastside Timbers||Harbor FC||Spokane Foxes FC|

Winners in the 13-U through 18-U age groups will represent the Northwest Champions League at the NPL Finals – the targeted destination for all NPL teams, where NPL national champions are crowned.
US Club Soccer’s Player Development Program (PDP) has also expanded within the region, as the Northwest Champions League will join the Oregon Premier League and Puget Sound Premier League/Washington State Premier League in hosting PDP events.
