Elite Clubs National League Logo

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 postseason 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.

RISE Elite level teams are formed through a variety of evaluation methods. We scout players at games, tryouts, and invitational training sessions. Player evaluations for Elite level teams can occur at any time of the year as long as the player is not currently rostered to another team within the same league at another club. All individual elite player evaluation sessions are free of charge.
