Developing the Next Generation
The Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) Boys is excited to announce that Arsenal, FC Golden State, Pateadores, Real So Cal, San Diego Surf, and Strikers FC will join the league in the 2020-2021 season as members of the Southwest Conference. All the teams had previously competed in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy West Conference, Southwest Division.
Pathway to the Pros
Our goal will be providing the best we can for our athletes to achieve their dreams. The Strikers curriculum has provided nearly a dozen alumni with USMNT call-ups, as well as led to two of the youngest players to sign professional contracts in US Soccer history, Francis Jacobs and Shane Kaemerle.
The ECNL program features teams from the top youth clubs from around Southern California. Teams will get the chance to play against top local talent, as well as travel to states such as Nevada and Arizona.
