The ECNL Boys Program consists of boys teams U13 through U19. The teams play in the Boys ECNL and tournaments and/or showcases.
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 ECNL post-season in the summer. The post-season consists of 1 national playoff stage for U13s and U18/19s and 2 stages for the U14s, U15s, U16s, & U17s.
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.
