The Womens Premier Soccer League is an independent national league whose main focus is on the development of highly competitive premier womens soccer teams.
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.
The WPSL was formed in 1998. It is sanctioned by the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) as an affiliate of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), the ruling body of soccer in the United States and FIFA the worlds ruling body for soccer.
The WPSL is unique in that it is an open league that is run by the teams. Each team gets one vote and decides all issues for the entire league. Anyone can access information about our league such as: current teams, rosters, statistics, schedules, results, constitution and by-laws, forms, meeting minutes and the latest league news at our website.
Our league expects new teams to conform to our minimum standards. We expect every team to achieve all WPSL standards. Standards that we stress include: a good playing surface, water for players provided by the home team, ice and a trainer at all games, professional conduct and adherence to the league constitution and by-laws.
The WPSL season runs from May 1st to August 6th. There is a league championship tournament that is held the last weekend of July or first weekend of August. The location of which is determined each year. Teams can expect to play 10-16 games during the season.

The WPSL mission statement:

- Make every effort to bring quality soccer to all levels of the community and to youth programs.

The great variety of highly skilled players is what makes the WPSL truly successful. WPSL teams roster college, post-college, foreign players and talented high school players every year. Many college programs encourage their players to play in our summer league because they believe it helps them prepare for the upcoming season. These players gain tremendous experience playing alongside other dedicated, competitive players, some of whom are former professional soccer players and others whom are aspiring to become professionals on or off the field.
During the last eight years, hundreds of players have spent their summer breaks playing on WPSL teams. Most come from highly regarded collegiate programs such as: Santa Clara, Portland, Notre Dame, North Carolina, UCLA, UC Berkeley, UCONN, Penn State, Princeton, Harvard, CSU, UMASS, USF, UOP, BYU, San Jose State, Stanford, San Diego State, Arizona State, Texas A&M, Denver University, UC Davis, U of New Hampshire, St. Marys and North Carolina State.
Collegiate programs have utilized our league to improve their players development and sustain their fitness over the summer months. Highly competitive youth clubs have also used our league to expose their players to teams that carry players from every level - national, collegiate, post-collegiate and youth - and they then carry the experience theyve gained, individually and as a team, into their local league competition in the fall and spring.
