Program Overview

The Boys Elite Clubs National League (Boys ECNL) was founded to improve the daily environment for boys youth soccer players through a collaborative club-based development program featuring competition, player identification, and coaching and club development platforms. The Boys ECNL will include both regular season conference games and cross-conference events, and qualifying teams from the Boys ECNL will advance to the post-season Elite National Premier League (ENPL) Playoffs.

The Boys ECNL is based on the values of grass-roots collaboration and innovation, and supports the independence and freedom of coaches and clubs to fully manage the development path for their players, including the system and style of play, the competitive calendar, and all aspects of the development path. The Boys ECNL will raise standards in training, competition, club organization, and coaching in a holistic development program. Do you have questions about our ECNL Boys program?

 Pathway, Benefits & Fees

The ECNL Boys Program is our second-tier senior boys' program and is for our U15-U19 age groups. ECNL is a club-wide program with one team per age group. This program requires a high level of commitment from the players but does allow for participation in high school soccer. Players in this program will compete in the Elite Club's National League.
