About The ECNL

MISSION:  The Elite Clubs National League, Inc. (“ECNL”) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit member-based organization founded in 2009 to enhance the developmental experience of the female youth soccer players in the United States. In 2017, a Boys ECNL program was added. ECNL participation enhances player development through:
  • Improving the competitive environment through creation of a true national competitive league with multiple flights;
  • Improving the process for identifying elite soccer players for the U.S. Soccer youth national teams through a systematic scouting and identification program based on national competitions; and
  • Improving the daily training environment at top youth soccer clubs through developing best practices and training and organizational guidelines for its member clubs. 
GOAL: The goal of the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) is to change the landscape for elite soccer players in the United States through innovative, player-centered programming and to enhance the overall experience by creating a better, more enjoyable, and more successful player, coach, and club development model.  In addition, the ECNL strives to:
  • Create a Competition Structure,
  • Create a Player Identification Platform, 
  • Create a Resource Sharing Structure, and
  • Create a Standards, Guidelines, & Incentives Structure.
ACTION PLAN (Summary): To accomplish this goal, the ECNL developed a common organizational structure, composed of individual clubs operating collectively under the direction of a commissioner.

The ECNL utilizes four primary delivery mechanisms, or platforms, for “Changing the Daily Environment:
  1. The Competition Platform
