This weekend San Diego plays host to the ECNL (Elite Clubs National League) U15-18 National Event and U14 Showcase Event. Games will be hosted at the gorgeous So Cal Sports Complex in Oceanside.
The ECNL is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization geared toward improving the daily environment of elite female youth soccer players across the United States. In pursuit of this mission, the league has “created the top female youth club competition in the world, player identification and development programs across the country, player health, education and performance platforms online and at ECNL events nationally, and club development and coaching education programs with experts from around the globe.”
Many of the best young female players coming into the USWNT team are alumni of the ECNL. Morgan Brian, Mallory Pugh, and Lindsey Horan all played in the ECNL prior to making their debuts for the United States Women’s National Team.
Be sure to swing by the So Cal Sports Complex and watch a selection of the nation’s finest young soccer players take the field.
