“The Northwest Conference is excited to have these teams and clubs set to participate this season in what will be a very competitive competition,” said Paul Bayly, the Northwest Conference league manager. “This area of the country is filled with people who are very passionate for soccer, with proven success on the field that has seen many players go on to play in ODP, in college, professionally, and with U.S. Senior and Youth National Teams. The collection of teams we have in the Northwest Conference ensures that the league will have the quality of play to push forward the area’s enthusiasm and rich history in the game.”
The Northwest Conference uses an event-based schedule, with the 15U-19U age groups playing primarily in December and January while the younger age groups play in March.
The Northwest Conference, along with each of the 13 National League Conferences, provides its teams with consistent high-level competition at a targeted local level.
