UTAH AVALANCHE - AN OFFICIAL MEMBER OF THE BOYS & GIRLS ECNL
Utah Avalanche 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. Utah Avalanche 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 Utah Avalanche has been invited to join the Boys Elite Clubs National League (Boys ECNL) level of competition to boys throughout Utah, while allowing them to still compete in high school soccer. We are humbled and honored to now offer this same level of competition to boys throughout Utah, while allowing them to still compete in high school soccer
The ECNL is a national youth soccer league for U-14, U-15, U-16, U-17, U-18, and U-19 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 Utah Avalanche 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.
