Higher standards, better competition, close to home.

      We have made 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 is also known as "CNPC". Teams must apply and be accepted into the competition. Competition will begin in August. Games will be played as a typical home and away operated league. The final number of games for the event will be determined once the number of applications are known and teams are accepted into the event. We anticipate each age group will have a minimum of 4 teams and a maximum of 8. The CNPC will have one club based division. Cal North and USYS will determine which teams are accepted into the club based division. The winner will advance on to the USYS Regionals. Also keep in mind, per USYS rules all teams must participate in the Cal North State Cup to be allowed to proceed into the USYS Regional event.

      Team applications will remain open until brackets are full. 

       In addition to elite competition, the Cal North Pacific Conference, for players U15 and up, is also an opportunity for additional scouting exposure by ODP, US Soccer, MLS and college coaches.

      • Applications: No applications. Clubs will be invited by Cal North. 
      • Format: There will be 3 games max in 4 team brackets. The winner will automatically advance to USYS Regionals.
      • USYS Rules: Per USYS rules, ALL teams participating in CNPC must play in the Cal North State Cup and must maintain a minimum of 9 players from their CNPC roster within their State Cup roster. In addition, ALL teams must play in a sanctioned US Club or USYS league with a minimum of 3 other teams (i.e. bracket of 4)
      • Fees: $450

      Teams Registered with an Affiliated Cal North League or Club: 

      If your team is already registered with one of our member organizations, please contact your registrar to obtain official Cal North credentials (roster and passes). Official Cal North team credentials are required for participation. 


      Teams Not Registered with an Affiliated Cal North League or Club: 

      If your team is not already registered with one of our member organizations, you will need to register your players through CNPC online. Non-Cal North credentials cannot be used (e.g. US Club passes).
