Participation Guidelines

Prior to participating, please review the COVID-19 Participation Guidelines for soccer

On Friday, January 22, 2021 the State of Illinois updated the Restore Illinois All Sports Policy, which establishes guidelines for sports activities.  The updated policy now allows for soccer games to be played when a region is in Tier 1 or Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan.  As a result of this new information and the anticipation that our regions will be in Tier 1 or Phase 4 this spring, the Naperville Park District is transitioning back to a competitive league format instead of the Premier University.

Welcome to the Naperville Premier Soccer League!

2nd through 7/8th graders
The Naperville Premier Soccer League is designed for teams seeking a competitive environment without the time commitment or cost of a travel league. Teams will enjoy a 8 game season in fall 2021. Optional technical and tactical training is provided weekly by a certified trainer. Click here for team fees, practice locations and trainer details. Practice time and location is determined by the team. Trainer availability is first come, first served based on the date of registration. Nonresidents are charged an additional $20 per player.

1st Graders
The Naperville Premier Soccer League (NPSL) University provides experienced soccer players with specialized training while cultivating a recreational experience that include practices and games. NPSL has expanded to include 1st grade players to bridge the Naperville Youth Soccer and Premier Soccer programs.

Registration Information

There are two ways to register for the Naperville Premier Soccer League.

TEAM REGISTRATION Coaches will register their team online choosing the option and course code that corresponds to their selection. A $200 non-refundable deposit or full payment is required at time of registration. Balance will be due July 30, 2021 and is nonrefundable at that point. All teams should register by July 15, 2021.

INDIVIDUAL REGISTRATION Players who are interested in the Premier League, but do not have a team, may register as an individual. If there is enough interest by age group a team will be created. There is no guarantee of placement on a team, however, we will do our best to either connect players with a team or create a team if there is enough interest. Teams will have a dedicated trainer as their coach and will practice one time per week. Volunteer assistant coaches and/or team managers are needed for each team. The last day to register as an individual or cancel and receive a refund is July 30, 2021. Fee per person is $242 for residents and $272 for nonresidents. Practices will begin the week of August 30. All individual teams will practice at Wolf's Crossing Community Park. Teams comprised of individual players will need to provide their own uniforms. This is not included in the fee. Information on options for uniforms will be provided once a team is formed.

What Makes Us Better

Naperville Premier Soccer League is a step above other programs because it provides coaches and teams with the ability to make decisions based on their interest level. It also gives teams the opportunity to play in a competitive environment with the highest level of training available while playing locally and at a fraction of the cost of club soccer.

In addition, coaches will make basic team decisions. Coaches will determine roster size, location, day and time of coach led practices and uniform choices.

Teams can select from several registration options ranging from league only play (just games) to a full time trainer and game coach, with options in between. Please see training information for all available options.


Choice of uniform and where to purchase them will be decided by individual teams. Teams may opt to wear reversible NYS jerseys, t-shirts from local hobby stores or full uniforms; all options are acceptable.

Uniform requirements:
1. Each team member must wear the same jersey, shorts and socks.
2. Each player must have a home and away jersey to prevent color conflicts with opposing teams.
3. Each jersey must have a unique number on the back; no two players may use the same number.

On Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011 Naperville Park District officials heard the good news for which they have been waiting for many months: the District has achieved national accreditation through the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA).

The decision was announced at the NRPA national conference in Atlanta following a formal hearing before the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA).

Naperville is only the second park district in Illinois to earn this distinction and the 104th nationally accredited agency in the nation; there are more than 10,000 recreation agencies in the United States. The Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies accredits a handful of park agencies each year that have completed a multi-step process involving a self-review by the agency, a site visit, and an evaluation and formal report by the Commission.

“We are extremely proud to bring this honor to Naperville,” said Park District Executive Director Ray McGury. “It’s an affirmation of our high standards and also an encouragement to continue bringing high quality recreation and parks experiences to our community.”

The Park District’s accreditation process began approximately one year ago and included an extensive self-evaluation by staff and a 5-day visit from CAPRA reviewers this past July. Maintaining the accreditation requires annual reports and 5- and 10-year reviews.

Park District staff members noted that the CAPRA process has helped them see the big picture, focus on long term goals and plans, review plans more regularly, organize documents so that they are accessible and useable, and collaborate more effectively with other departments and outside organizations.
