Due to the recent State COVID ruling on youth sports that do not allow competitive matches to be played, we have moved our scheduled event weekends in August, September and October to future dates in early January and February. We are tentatively holding onto our November event weekend with the hope that COVID policy may change to allow for competitive matches at that point. The new dates and competitive format changes will be announced over the next few weeks.

Cal North Pacific Conference

Higher standards, better competition, close to home.

We are making some very exciting changes to our regional league, formerly known as the California Regional League. With the help and collaboration of directors of coaches across northern California we are redefining competitive soccer.  We have heard you and understand your challenges and are looking forward to seeing you participate in our newly reimagined competition. 

Your Pathway to Regional and National Competition

The Cal North Pacific Conference is a qualifier for regional competition and your chance at a national title.

The Cal North Pacific Conference, also known as CNPC, is made up of two division of play. Teams must apply and be accepted into the competition. Competition begins in August and continues into May with Cal North hosted weekend competition that is compatible with the High School Soccer playing calendar. Games will be centrally hosted with boys playing two games on Saturday, and girls two games on Sunday (one game in the morning, and one game in the afternoon). 

Team applications will remain open until brackets are full. 

In addition to elite competition, the Cal North Pacific Conference, for player U15 and up, is also an opportunity for additional scouting exposure by ODP, US Soccer, MLS and college coaches. There are two showcase events in the early winter (November) and Spring (May). 

With direct input from DOCs and Technical Directors, the Cal North Pacific Conference is poised to continue growing in its offering.
