Northeast Pre-academy League

The Northeast Pre-academy League (NAL) is a youth soccer league for boys and girls ages 11-19 in the northeastern United States. The league was founded in 2017 and is currently made up of over 60 member clubs.


The mission of the NAL is to provide a high-level competitive platform for young soccer players to develop their skills and prepare for college and professional soccer. The league also strives to create a positive and fun environment for players to learn and grow.
