SC del Sol is proud to own the only Women’s Premier Soccer League franchise in Arizona – Phoenix del Sol. The WPSL is a 70-plus team national pro-am league and is the largest women’s soccer league in the world. The WPSL’s mission is to provide the highest level of soccer in an effort to: bring affordable & quality family entertainment to the community; display positive role models for our youth; while, being a stepping stone for aspiring professional & international-level players.
WPSL teams are able to roster college, post-college, foreign players and talented high school players every year. Many collegiate coaches encourage their players to play in the WPSL summer league because it keeps their players active at a high level throughout the summer.
Hundreds of college players spend their summer breaks playing on WPSL teams. Most come from highly regarded collegiate programs such as: Santa Clara, Portland, Notre Dame, North Carolina, UCLA, UC Berkeley, UCONN, Penn State, Princeton, Harvard, CSU.
The WPSL has shown itself to be a proving ground for many athletes who went on to become household names. Many former and current U.S. and International National Team players have played on WPSL teams including: Julie Foudy, Brandi Chastain, Kristine Lilly, Joy Fawcett, Abby Wambach, Shannon Boxx, Leslie Osbourne, Shannon MacMillan, Keri Sanchez, Sissi, Jennifer Molina, Monica Gonzalez, Nozumi Yamago and Tisha Venturini.
Phoenix del Sol is the pinnacle of the female development program at SC del Sol and shows the commitment we have made to the girls’ program. It means that all of our players have a clear pathway from the U6 program through to the highest level of competitive women’s soccer in the United States. SC del Sol has the proud distinction of being the only youth soccer club in Arizona to have achieved both ECNL and WPSL status and one of the few clubs in the country to have done so.
