Desert Conference

The National League Desert Conference (formally DPL) provides an opportunity for the most competitive teams in its portion of the US Youth Soccer West Region to play each other on a scheduled basis. Each year, teams compete for a spot in the prestigious US Youth Soccer Far West Regional Championships, as well as the highly-competitive US Youth Soccer National League.

The Desert Conference is open to teams from Arizona, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada.

The Desert Conference will pay the entry fee for the Far West Regional Championships for all winners.
