The ECNL was founded in 2009 by forward-thinking Directors of Coaching across the country who saw a need for change in and special commitment to improving the daily environment for American elite female youth soccer players. These Directors came together and collaborated to build what would become the top female youth development platform in the world. The grass roots leadership and cooperation was unprecedented in American youth soccer, and the ECNL continues to be the most progressive and innovative development platform in the country.
“The ECNL provides a development environment where players can showcase their talent in front of hundreds of college scouts in the most professional atmosphere in the country,” said Jen Winnagle, ECNL Commissioner. “Players that first sparked notice at an ECNL National Event only a few years ago are now dominating every level of college soccer, and starring in the NWSL. Every year, more and more ECNL Alums move on to change the game at in college soccer, with more than 4,000 ECNL Alums in Division I this past fall.”
