The New England Developmental League (NEDL) is a Seacoast United founded Spring soccer league, organized in partnership with classic and premier clubs from across the state of Maine.
Teams participate in developmentally appropriate matches with an emphasis on skill-development and experiential learning. The league focus is for teams to play matches testing player development, providing the opportunity for success and failure in order to enrich the growth of young soccer players. Club representatives are that for the benefit of the players, not all players will play at "age level." Some players may play "up", or "down" age divisions in an effort to prioritize player development.
