    ECNL schedules should be available in early August.
     
  3. What what team is Arsenal making their “A” ECNL team? U18/19 or U18/19 Composite?

    Is Rising going to have two ECNL U18/19 teams as well?

    The “A” team is the u18/19. The “B” team would be the composite team.

    ECNL is putting more players into Power 5 Conferences than DA.

    ECNL ALUMS LIGHT UP POWER 5 CONFERENCES IN 2019
    RICHMOND, VA (November 25, 2019) – The 2019 women’s college soccer regular season saw alums from the ECNL Girls have their biggest on-field impact in history, with growth in the incredible total number of players in the Power 5, and in the stunning impact these players are having.

    The ECNL College Impact chronicles the unprecedented influence of ECNL alums as leaders at the collegiate level, showcasing their achievements and overall effect on the game both on and off the field. The facts from the 2019 season solidify the ECNL’s undisputed role in creating the country’s leading environment for player development, and in being more than a league when it comes to impact on women’s soccer in the United States.

    Consistent with previous years, ECNL Alums have again overwhelmingly dominated the 2019 individual conference honors in the “Power 5” conferences – the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), Big Ten Conference, Big 12 Conference, Southeastern Conference (SEC), and the Pac-12 Conference. In total, there are over 1,100 ECNL Alums playing in these five conferences, accounting for more than 62% of all rostered players in the Power 5.

    “The goal of the ECNL has always been to provide a platform that supports and enables each ECNL club to meet the needs of their players. These Power 5 numbers quantify the magic that happens when amazing players are given the right environment for their development,” said Jen Winnagle, Commissioner, ECNL Girls. “Each of the young women playing at the collegiate level today are raising the expectations for the next generation. We are proud to count so many of them as ECNL Alums and look forward to celebrating their continued success on the field and in life.”

    ECNL Alums by the Numbers:Every conference in the Power 5 saw an increase in the number of ECNL Alums, making the 2019 Impact the league’s largest in four years.

    Atlantic Coast Conference
    • 109 ECNL alums in the freshman class participated in the conference

    That is pretty impressive. Seems like ECNL is alive and well and DA is not as dominant as it seems

    I think time will tell on that. ECNL will continue to do just fine. This is only yr 3 of DA. I know many of the older girls in ECNL saw no reason to leave in their last 2-3 yrs to jump to DA.

    So ECNL talks about ECNL freshman coming in this year. Fantastic stuff. But remember those are girls who were seniors last year in what would have been yr 2 for DA.

    In the long run the majority of kids will be from ECNL/DA. I bet you the breakdown will be close overall nationwide, but regionally for instance if ECNL is stronger in an area, those colleges may likely have more ECNL...and in other areas where DA is stronger maybe DA.

    Both will be good pipelines to college.

    If you look at Arizona, the girls that were playing ECNL as freshman in HS were at Del Sol/Sereno, which are now the DA clubs. They didn't jump to DA, their club became DA. This would be the 00 and 01 players.

    Tallpines - Some of the data you are asking for is in the article. There were increases in 2019 freshman ECNL alums in the ACC, Big 12, Pac-12, and SEC - 4 of the major conferences.

    Atlantic Coast Conference
    • The 2019 freshman class of ECNL Alums increased 18% from the last season
    Big 12 Conference
    • The 2019 freshman class of ECNL Alums increased 39% from the last season
    Pac-12 Conference
    • The 2019 freshman class of ECNL Alums increased 16% from the last season
    Southeastern Conference
    • The 2019 freshman class of ECNL Alums increased 48% from the last season

    I refer to ECNL as a whole since that is what we are talking about vs ECNL/DA in AZ.

    I'm just curious as to the stats from the DA compared to ECNL. My daughter did both and in our opinion the ECNL platform is the better option. Having both leagues IMO hurts US woman's soccer overall as it dilutes the nations best talent over 2 leagues.

    Desert Hound as made the point, and it's correct, that it depends what part of the country you're in - ECNL has an historical advantage, but in many parts of the country (including the Southwest) the DA level of play is simply better than ECNL. My guess is that nationally it's very close to even which has more players on Division 1 rosters, or all college rosters in total.

    I think Arizona is in a tough spot. 2 DA clubs and 2 ECNL clubs plus 2 DPL has really diluted the talent pool. That coupled with playing in arguably the hardest conference in the country makes things more difficult. Players leaving DA clubs for high school continues to happen at both clubs. These girls are rolling the dice that they can be picked up on an ECNL roster in Feb. Some of these girls are Jr's and Seniors. Some are committed some are not. Some are tired of the schedule. Some are tired of the coaches. Some are tired of the constant travel. I could go on and on. But I think as we move forward I think we are going to continue to see movement each year.

    But it does not really matter which league you play in (ECNL or DA). If your a quality player, you have a shot a being found. But you also need to do your leg work and reach out to schools and coaches. People think just because you play in one of these leagues you will be found and handed an opportunity. That's not quite how it works.

    At the end of the day - you have to do what is best for your daughter. Soccer wise, life balance wise, etc.
