The Minnesota NPL aims to provide a practical, club-centric, annual schedule.
Overall schedule and approach will be decided by the League of Directors.

All applications are reviewed by the League of Directors. As has been in the past, preference will be given to those clubs that commit to the NPL at multiple age groups and genders.
Single teams will be considered in the event that divisions need “division fillers”.
All NPL clubs will be held to a high standard including signing an Agreement that covers, but not limited to, the following:
Current Members – $1,000 Bond (applied to league dues in full)
New Members – $1,000 Bond ($100 application fee if accepted, $900 applied to dues in full if accepted)
If an applicant is not accepted, the club will be refunded in full.
The Minnesota NPL window is open April 20-May 20. All applications must be received by May 20.
Club announcements (existing and new) will be made the week of June 6.
