Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL)

Now taking reservations for our evaluations sessions as we begin to prep for the Summer 2018 season!

The Women's Premier Soccer League (WPSL) is an independent highly competitive national league whose main focus is on the development of highly competitive premier women's soccer teams. The league has over 100 clubs participating from all over the United States.

The WPSL also makes every effort to bring quality soccer to all levels of the community and to promote the stature of female athletes as role models for our youth. Through the years, our league has had many national open and amateur cup victories.

The WPSL was formed in 1998. It is sanctioned by the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA), who is an affiliate of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), the ruling body of soccer in the United States and FIFA the world's ruling body for soccer.

The WPSL season runs from May 1st to August 1st. There is a league championship tournament that is held the last weekend of July in venues that vary from year-to-year. Teams can expect to play 10-16 games during the season.

Cesena USA is now prepared to participate in an exciting, expanding league whose focus is strictly upon the development and promotion of women's soccer players from around the world. We are proud to now be part of the “foundation” of committed and prestigious teams located throughout the nation.  


Cesena USA WPSL Player Identification and Selection Process

Players are selected for the Cesena USA WPSL roster utilizing a series of professionally managed and run "Identification Sessions" and open/rolling tryouts leading up to the start of the 2018 playing season. Our international staff strives to identify highly skilled local players that exhibit technical ability, conceptual knowledge and demonstrate leadership abilities on the field of play.

The selection process for the Cesena USA summer 2018 WPSL season begins months ahead of time with a series of Identification Sessions over the preceding winter. Players are selected at the discretion of Cesena USA Technical Director and coaching staff. The objective is to have teams completed by Late April 2018 with "fill-in" tryouts held in early May for complete rosters for summer season play.

Once Cesena USA players are selected they will participate in team training sessions and scrimmages versus clubs throughout the area to sharpen players skills and conceptual knowledge.

Cesena USA WPSL "Primavera" To Hold Tryouts For 2017-18 season!

As local clubs begin to plan on many of their girls to play with their respective high schools in the spring, Cesena USA we will be moving forward with the creation of our WPSL “Primavera” 99G team. This group will play US Club and consist of a mix of ‘99/’00/’01 players  and will form the backbone of our WPSL program.

This US Club rostered team will be the WPSL “Primavera” Team (WPSL Reserve Team) as we look ahead to 2018 and the WPSL regular season.  This group will play winter and early-spring tournaments with our 1st Tournament on February 17th-18th. Once players make the cut, they will be included throughout the summer 2018 WPSL season to supplement our 1st team roster if needed.  

The idea behind the Cesena USA U19 Primavera is to:

  • Provide playing and training opportunities for those players that want to further their development over the winter/early spring months
  • To select and prepare the “primavera” team to support our WPSL 1st team next season
  • Showcase talented players to colleges/universities throughout the region

Tryout details:

  • Saturday, December 9th and Sunday, December 10th, 2017 from 12-2PM on Turf #2 at Champe HS
  • ALL players interested in trying out MUST register online at WPSL REG  even if you registered last year
  • Registration deadline Friday, November 10th, 2017
  • Players will have 24 hours to respond once they are offered a slot. In absence of a response we will assume a “decline” and move on to make the next available player eligible. Please contact me if you have any questions on this.
