The Boys Elite Clubs National League (Boys ECNL) was founded in 2016 to improve the daily environment for boys youth soccer players through a collaborative club-based development program featuring competition, player identification, and coaching and club development platforms. The Boys ECNL will include both regular season conference games and cross-conference events, and qualifying teams from the Boys ECNL will advance to the post-season Elite National Premier League (ENPL) Playoffs.
The Boys ECNL is based on the values of grass-roots collaboration and innovation, and supports the independence and freedom of coaches and clubs to fully manage the development path for their players, including the system and style of play, the competitive calendar, and all aspects of the development path. The Boys ECNL will raise standards in training, competition, club organization, and coaching in a holistic development program.
Pipeline Soccer Club (PSC) participates in the Northeast Conference.
US Club is the governing body of ECNL / NPL / ENPL and future leagues run throughout the United States. The next level of US Club Soccer leagues is the NPL. The NPL provides a unified, club-based national developmental platform with the highest level of competition in its geographic areas which will host Pipelines Pre- ECNL, Black, Red, and Gold teams. “Anything Santino and I focus on has to be club centric and make sense for every team,” said Club President Sean Rush. “The showcases, league play, and opportunities for our Pre-ECNL (currently Black teams) Black, and Red teams will be elevated greatly with this platform. Our objective for the past 9 years has been to develop the highest-level players and it is now our job to place those players from all levels, at the best Universities” added Rush
Created to elevate and change the competitive youth soccer landscape based upon US Club Soccer’s fundamental principles, the NPL extends developmental principals espoused by the U.S. Soccer Development Academy into younger age groups and additional clubs, providing a platform for long-term player development.
