WHY COMPETE IN THE SWPL?

  1. We put the Clubs first!
    1. We are all about sustainability and want to support teams in coming alongside them to help them achieve their goals. Check out the other leagues, is their marketing more about their league or do they put clubs first?
  2. We charge less, so clubs have more money to invest in their teams.
  3. We believe in local and regional competition.
    1. We do not believe it is sustainable for an amateur club to be spending thousands of dollars to travel all across the country to determine a "national champion". It costs more to travel to play these games than the prize money you would win!
    2. We believe if your team wants to travel then do it for the experience, find a tournament in another state, another country even, to compete in. Other than that, focus your efforts on growing your club, developing your business plan. We will help you
  4. We believe in US Soccer.
    1. We support the movement and growth of the Women's game! We advocate for the sustainability and access for women.

HOW LONG IS A "SEASON"

For SWPL Women, we go with what makes most sense to the clubs who join us. We take their input and feedback then create a sustainable, competitive schedule that fits your club needs. 

We will determine the exact format of the seasons based on the toatl number of teams registered and accepted into the league. The overall goal is to achieve conferences in several Regions with games between September - May for OPEN and May-July for U23.
