About the ECNL:
The ECNL is a national youth soccer league founded in 2009 for U-15 through U-18 girls’ teams for the purpose of providing the highest level of competition and the best developmental environment for American female youth soccer players, as well as an identification and development program, which will seek to include players in US Soccer’s National Teams. The ECNL consists of 66 of the top female youth soccer clubs throughout the United States competing in three team flights. Each U-15 through U-17 team will play in three ECNL National events and the National Championship.The 2011-12 season is the ECNL’s third season, during which each U-14 through U-18 teams will play between 28 and 30 regional and national games throughout the year, accumulating points leading up to the ECNL national championship.
2011-2012 ECNL National Championship: Following the conclusion of the regular-season, the ECNL will host the ECNL National Championships June 25-30 in Chicago, IL. At the ECNL National Championships, every U-15 through U-17 ECNL team and the top eight U-18 teams will compete in three post-season playoff games to determine final standings in each division at each age group. Teams will participate in one of four groups: the Championship Group (the top eight teams at each of the U-15 through U-18 age groups), the Promotion/Relegation Group (teams that finished third and fourth in Challenge B and 23rd and 24th in Challenge A in the U-15 through U-17 age groups), the Challenge A Field (all other Challenge A teams in the U-15 through U-17 age groups) and the Challenge B Field (all other Challenge B teams in the U-15 through U-17 age groups).
At the conclusion of the ECNL National Championships, individual age group ECNL National Champions will be crowned and an overall ECNL Club National Champion will be crowned. In addition to the two teams from Challenge B that will automatically be promoted to Challenge A and the two teams from Challenge A that will automatically be relegated to Challenge B in the U-15 through U-17 age groups at the end of the regular season, the Promotion/Relegation Group will determine the final two spots in each Challenge for the following season.
2011-12 ECNL Player Identification Program:
The ECNL player identification program in 2011-12 will be organized in conjunction with US Club Soccer’s id2 player identification and development program. ECNL coaches and staff will work closely with id2 staff to identify elite female players in the 1997 and 1998 birth years for participation in one of three id2 National Camps. In addition, players in the 1995 and 1996 birth years will be scouted in ECNL competition for invitations to a special ECNL / id2 National Camp in early 2012. The ECNL will cover all costs of participation (except travel) for ECNL players identified in the 1995-96 age group for this camp.
