The Charlotte Independence Soccer Club offers a Boys ECNL Futures Program as a way to provide even more competitive pathways to our players. If you have any questions about this program please contact Barry Slagle for the North at and contact Tom McEnery for the South at

Program Overview

Boys ECNL Futures is our second-tier junior and senior boys' program. This program will have two teams per age group, one in the North and one in the South. The ECNL Futures will compete in the ECNL Carolinas Regional League. Teams will also compete in national level showcase events. Some teams will participate in the NCYSA/SCYSA state leagues while others have additional tournaments. We are excited to be a founder and inaugural member of the Boys ECNL Carolina’s Regional League. The Boys ECNL Regional league will make up our Boys ECNL Futures program at our Charlotte Independence Soccer Club and will bridge the gap between our local competitive levels our national programming.  The ECNL Futures league will be industry-leading in the development of players that are looking to play at the highest levels, whether that be at our top level of national programming, the ECNL league, or as a recruiting platform for those players that are planning on playing collegiate soccer.
