According to the NPL Website there are now 82 teams signed up to play. Looks like there will be some good soccer being played this spring.

Check out the u12b!  Both semifinalists are in.  Finalist and Champion are in also!  Those teams plus the other top teams that did not make it far enough into State Cup BUT that are real good teams should make this league an excellent thing.  CYSA should take note of how many teams crave strong competition regardless of CYSA boundaries.

Up to 87 teams now and growing. Looks like sombody got it right.  I see 1st and 2nd teams are signing up.  A league for any motivated team no matter how big the club. Very refreshing to see this happening.

91 teams and counting.  Go NPL

Scheduling last year was bad enough, but this year has been a nightmare! complain complain. This league is a lot of work for the team managers!  Anyone else having trouble scheduling/rescheduling games?  The rain hasn't helped... We shall prevail!

Same issue and complaints with Y League.

Y League. That's good to know. I wondered if we were missing something by not being in Y league.

Well, the scheduling is difficult I still think that Y League is the best league my kid has played in.  I guess my point was that this is always an issue in every league.

The competition in Y League is pretty consistent and generally the rules associated with Y League insure consistency in fields, refs and the level of play.  I know that some people find Y League hard---travel 2 hours for one game--but I would much rather play Y League and skip D6.....

The aspects of Y League which are good:
1) National League
2) Only the top clubs need apply
3) Home club plays visiting club all the way through the age groups at one field.
4) For the most part the fields are of better quality
5) Competition is better since many teams combine with other teams.

The aspects of Y League that are not good:
1) Y League is set up for clubs not teams.  Some top teams are excluded because they don't belong to a top club.
2) Some teams especially younger age groups are not as strong because of #1 above.
3) Some pretty long travel days for 1 game.

I think you got it pretty much covered!  I think the refs are consistently better.  Not to say that they are all great, but overall much better than any other league.  I know that they are often the same as other leagues, but Y League seems to be a little more particular about who they assign to which games.

I think the sub rules are also good.  Once you are out, you are out for the half.  This keeps the game moving.  I also like the sub on any dead ball rule...more like the pros and college.  A good thing.

I agree that overall the fields are better and there is an attempt at a more professional approach to the game.
