About SWPL

 

The Southwest Premier League (SWPL), formerly known as SoCal Premier League, and previous to that - Coast Soccer League Seniors, was founded in 1976. For decades SoCal Premier has offered a competitive league format which includes promotion, relegation and plays during the traditional Fall-Spring calendar. In its partnership with the National Independent Soccer Association (NISA), the SWPL can offer clubs throughout Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah an opportunity to become professional through sporting merit and proper business practices.

 

CORE VALUES:

  • Competence - understand the game, where we are going, and how to get there
  • Commitment - to excellence, to standards, to each other
  • Community - Collaboration with each other, giving our best to one another on and off the field, giving authority and respect to referees
  • Character - honoring and representing our league, our club, our team, and ourselves
  • Celebration - Looking forward, looking back - to see where we have come from, award those who achieve, and recognize our own growth and achievement from year to year

SWPL believes in having a "club over league" mentality. Our clubs help determine all the decisions within our league. We have over 100 independent clubs within our system, all of whom believe in our core principles of teamwork and sporting meritocracy.
