FC Bucks is proud to be a long-standing member of the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), founded in 2009 to showcase an exclusive selection of the top 62 Girls clubs from around the country. FC Bucks Girls teams have had a strong showing in the ECNL while competing at the highest level of play in the country.
We are extremely excited to announce that FC Bucks has been invited to be one of the founding members of the Inaugural Boys Elite Clubs National League (Boys ECNL). We can now offer this same level of competition to boys in Bucks County and surrounding areas while allowing them to still compete in high school soccer. We are humbled and honored.
The ECNL is a national youth soccer league for U-14, U-15, U-16, U-17 and U-18 girls and boys teams for the purpose of providing the highest level of competition and the best developmental environment for American youth soccer players, as well as an identification and development program, which will seek to include players in US Soccer’s National Teams.
The Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) has become the highest standard of competition on the female side and has helped us place many of our girls in colleges all over the country, allowing them to continue their soccer careers. We are confident it will do the same for the boys. We have a large under-served male soccer population in this area looking for something more than the standard premier team that also allows high school soccer. The Boys ECNL is the perfect fit, matching like-minded clubs and training philosophies in a competitive environment designed to maximize player development and exposure.
The ECNL is an excellent opportunity for FC Bucks to continue our tradition of excellence and further our club goals of offering the highest level of competition possible to our current and future players.
FC Bucks will be conducting 2017 multi-session ECNL ID Clinics starting January 14, 2017. These ID Clinics will be for Boys & Girls currently in the U11, U12, U13, U14, U15, U16, U17, and U18 age groups (2006 to 1999 birth year). These sessions will give players the opportunity to be identified and developed prior to the spring tryouts.
