Connecticut FC (CFC) is very excited to announce the movement of all our top-level boy’s teams over to the Elite Club National League (ECNL) for the 2021/2022 season. This will give all our members a league that will provide a platform for players to compete on a regional and national level.
At CFC, we are continually striving to provide an avenue for players to compete at the highest level possible. With that being said, we have grown our participation in the ECNL by now offering 2 teams; one at the current National Level, and the second into the new Regional Level. All CFC ECNL teams will have access to the ECNL platform and national event showcases, as well as being trained by the area's top college and youth coaches.
"The addition of the ECNL Regional League is yet another value-added initiative by the Boys ECNL to provide valuable programming that will enhance the player experience for each of our ECNL Member Clubs," says Eric Da Costa, CFC ECNL Boys Director. "For CFC, it streamlines our player development model under a singular league structure and defines a clear pathway for our players and families."
Da Costa continues, "The resources and reach of the ECNL platform will allow us to showcase more of our players in a highly competitive environment. It also affords us the ability to allow players to develop at different rates while also having the opportunity to identify and challenge those players who are progressing."
Boys teams will be put together for U12 (players born 2010) and older.
Training primarily will be held out of:
ECNL National League: Choate Rosemary Hall, Wallingford, CT
ECNL Regional League: Sports World, East Windsor, CT
