ECNL Girls Regional Leagues are designed to service a deeper player pool from member clubs within the ECNL Girls, and to provide a competitive platform for objective evaluation of new clubs for full ECNL membership in the future. Through a post-season pathway, top performing teams in ECNL Girls Regional Leagues earn the opportunity to compete in the Open Cup Division of the ECNL Playoffs at the U15, U16 and U17 ages, where they will match up against other ECNL Girls Regional League qualifiers as well as member clubs of the ECNL.
The ECNL Girls will be adding a new league to its growing platform of Regional Leagues, as the ECNL Girls Regional League – Florida will begin play in the 2020-21 season. The ECNL Girls Regional League – Florida will be operated by the Florida Club League, and will include competition at the U11 through U18/U19 age groups.
“The growth of the ECNL Regional Leagues reinforces the tremendous youth female talent pool across the US,” said ECNL Girls Commissioner, Jen Winnagle. “By providing these young women with the opportunity to compete with other exceptional athletes, it is our mission to provide a pathway for players to reach their fullest potential. We welcome these amazing young women as we raise the game together.”
