As a Premier level soccer club, NPSA feels that all playing time must be earned. To compete at the highest levels of competition we must hold our players to higher standards and expect more from them. Playing time is earned and is not an entitlement. If a player feels entitled to playing time, we believe that the incentive to compete for a spot and ultimately challenge other players is lost. The exception to this is in the development level age groups. Our current development age groups are U8-U10.
|Age Group||Playing Time|
|U8-U10||50% of game time|
|U-11 to U19||All playing time is earned|
*50% of playing time refers to across the course of a season and not per game.
