Elite Clubs National League – Girls


About the ECNL MISSION:  The Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) was founded in 2009 to enhance the developmental experience of female youth soccer players in the United States through:

  • Improving the competitive environment through creation of a true national competitive league with multiple flights;
  • Improving the process for identifying elite female soccer players for the U.S. Soccer youth national teams through a systematic scouting and identification program based on national competitions; and
  • Improving the daily training environment at top female youth soccer clubs through developing best practices and training and organizational guidelines for its member clubs.
Player Indentification

Player Identification – players are strongly encouraged to reach out directly to Real Colorado if there is interest in our Elite Clubs National League program.

  • Current players from clubs outside of ECNL clubs can request a trial at any time.
  • Current players from clubs inside the ECNL may contact us at anytime, but cannot train, practice or play with a Real Colorado team until after May 1st, 2017

Real Colorado will be hosting player placement trials after Memorial Day weekend as a last option for player placement.


The ECNL features teams from the top youth clubs from around the country. Each ECNL team plays approximately 20-24 regular season games to ensure all games are meaningful. Games are also played according to FIFA’s Laws of the Game and officiated by a pool of the nation’s top young referees in order to prepare players for the next level of competition.

Real Colorado is excited to be 1 of only 3 clubs in Colorado with participation in the Elite Clubs National League.

For fall 2017/spring 2018 Real Colorado is the only club in Colorado to support both a GDA and ECNL program for the girls, and only 1 of 11 in the United States.
