NWPL season nears as clubs gear up with weekend friendlies

The second season of the Northwest Premier League (NWPL) will kick off Sunday April 30 around the state of Washington. The elite, amateur statewide league is entering year number two with plenty of momentum thanks to two new clubs and a revamped format that now includes ‘parity’ scheduling and a post-season.
