*We are monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 in each community where the DPL will take place, as well as where teams will be traveling from. As we progress through the Summer months into the Fall we will continue to provide updates regarding the status of the DPL. Furthermore, if necessary, we will institute safety measures for players, clubs, teams, parents, referees and the host facility to ensure we can create the safest environment possible. 6.24.20
The Dakota Premier League (DPL) is designed to provide opportunities for developmentally appropriate competition for league members. The DPL is guided by creating meaningful game opportunities for teams in the upper Midwest. Through these meaningful games, the long-term development of players can be better served.
Guiding Principles of the DPL
- Player Centered – The DPL focuses on what is in the best interest of players that can positively impact their long-term development.
- Club Development – The DPL understands that the primary development of players occurs within the players own club environment. The league will help support club development and help foster the best environment for player development.
- U.S. Soccer Standards – Supporting certain player development initiatives will allow for the league to mirror the vision of US Soccer and lead players down a structured developmental pathway. For example: Consistent schedules, developmentally appropriate matchups and age appropriate rules.
