South Valley Chivas is granted National Premier League (NPL) status

NorCal Premier Soccer has announced that South Valley Chivas (boys) have all been granted full NPL club status.

The NorCal NPL has been the pinnacle of the NorCal pyramid for more than a decade, and provides a pathway to the highest levels of competition in NorCal for NPL clubs and qualifying wild card teams. Each year, only a few clubs meet the standards to become an NPL club.

Each of these clubs earned their statuses as NPL clubs based off of their results over the past year, before undergoing an evaluation process in which they were assessed in these five categories:

Competitiveness of Teams
Club Leadership
Technical Program
Player Pool
Football Environment

“Getting NPL status will not only affect our club but will also affect our community enormously. Knowing that we can showcase our youths talent at the top competitive levels coming from such a small town is another outlet and opportunity for our youth to grow not only in their athletic abilities but as young men and women. We hope this opportunity helps grow the game in our community and continues to fire up the passion and love for the game that already exists within our community.”

– South Valley Chivas Director Esmaldo Hernandez
