Seacoast United will enter one team at each age group from U12-18 in this category. Elite teams will be made up of the top players from across all the Seacoast United organizations in Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. These teams will compete in the New England-NPL division of the National Premier Leagues (NPL), a US Club Soccer sanctioned league. The NE-NPL is made up of 7 of the top clubs in the New England region. There are 18 divisions across the country for NPL and the winners of each division progress to the NPL Champions Cup.
The Seacoast United Elite team will also participate in top Showcase tournaments over the East Coast. This structure provides the most competitive players within all of the Seacoast United organizations an opportunity to compete against the highest level of competition available. Players will be allowed to participate in high school soccer in the fall and winter, however they are expected to make full commitment to the Elite team during the spring season.
