National League P.R.O. represents the second stage of national events for all National League teams. The P.R.O. events create a truly unique environment, as club-based teams that advanced from the Elite 64 Playoffs compete against team-based sides that advanced from the Conference Playoffs. With each team earning its place at the P.R.O. events, it’s a great opportunity for players to compete in meaningful high-level games as the teams vie for berths to the USYS National Championships.
