The Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) was founded in 2009 to enhance the developmental experience of female youth soccer players in the United States through:
  • Improving the competitive environment through creation of a true national competitive league;
  • Improving the process for identifying elite female soccer players through a systematic scouting and identification program based on national competitions; and
  • Improving the daily training environment at top female youth soccer clubs through developing best practices and training and organizational guidelines for its member clubs. 

The ECNL is the most innovative, player-centric organization in female youth soccer, the best competitive environment in the history of female youth soccer, and the most robust player identification, scouting and recruiting platform in the country.
