ECNL Girls Regional League

Total Player Pathway: Phase 4

Our ECNL Girls Regional League primarily plays in the ECNL Girls RL Heartland Conference which includes Regional and possibly Nationals events.  Its role in the Total Player Pathway is to serve developing players for higher levels. Traveling is similar to the ECNL programs but is still at a level that can be competitive and has the opportunity to further one’s development.  This league also requires clubs to apply and be selected as having enough quality and depth in their squads U13 through U18/19 to participate. Players must try out to play at this level and then they are placed on the appropriate level team based on their abilities.

ECNL Girls Regional Leagues are operated and managed beneath the ECNL umbrella so as to ensure a consistent environment and level of professionalism across all leagues, facilitating more club connectivity between levels of play and providing a path for more players within each Member Club to reach their fullest potential.  Each league allows for coordination and collaboration between the teams of different levels within ECNL clubs or opportunity for teams and players in other clubs to develop through regular high-level competition


Our ECNL Girls RL program is an all-service system that meets the needs of under 13-year-olds to under 19-year-olds.  Designed to create a competitive environment for players to continue to develop their playing abilities and understand the game. As a branch off the wildly successful ECNL, the Regional League will offer a platform for players to showcase in front of college scouts at National Events and pair competitive competition for each league match.
