The League was formed in 1998 and is an independent league providing the best women’s amateur soccer in the USA. Our goal is to develop an exciting and competitive environment for women’s soccer players throughout North America.
The league is what each team makes of it. Current costs to join the WPSL are a one-time fee of $2,500 (due upon entering), and an annual league fee of $4,000 (that includes $500 player registration for 25 players), with $500 due by October 1st, $500 due by November 1st, and the remaining $3000 due by January 5th. There is an additional cost of $210 per home game for referee fees.
We have a mandatory AGM to elect officials and adopt a schedule for all teams that is held each year the last Saturday of January in Las Vegas, NV. Our season runs from May 1st to August 1st. We have a Final Four League Championship Tournament the last weekend of July. The tournament location rotates between the regions each year. We comply with all NCAA regulations.

The main emphasis for the WPSL is to develop highly competitive women’s soccer teams. We have a great variety of teams with college players, college graduates, as well as foreign and professional players coming back as amateurs to play for their home-town teams. We are an excellent training environment for players to advance themselves and continue to play at a higher level.
Our league expects teams to conform to our minimum standards. Standards that we stress include: a good playing surface, water for players provided by the home team, ice and a trainer at all games, professional conduct and adherence to the league constitution and by-laws. We are organized on a regional basis to help control costs.
You have a chance to participate in an exciting, growing league with a foundation of committed and well-regarded teams. We are the only national amateur league that is not affiliated with a men’s league. Our focus is strictly upon the development and promotion of women soccer players.
