TEAM vs. TEAM DIVISIONS
Every National League Conference operates Team vs. Team divisions. Team-based competition allows each individual team to earn its place and helps to create an evenly-matched, highly competitive league format from season to season.
While every conference features a top tier (Premier I Division) team-based competition, some conferences offer additional levels of play with promotion and relegation between tiers.
CLUB vs. CLUB DIVISIONS
Several National League Conferences operate Club vs. Club divisions. Club-based competition allows for like-minded clubs to compete against each other in a competitive environment that helps the clubs strive toward their goals and objectives.
Many of the current Club vs. Club divisions operate as a top-tier competition, featuring a competition level equivalent to the Team vs. Team Premier I Division and providing advancement opportunities to USYS Regional Championships (NCS) and National League P.R.O.
