Pipeline Girls ECNL Director
The Girls Elite Clubs National League (Girls ECNL) was founded in 2009 by forward-thinking Directors of Coaching across the country who saw a need for change in and special commitment to improving the daily environment for American elite female youth soccer players. These Directors came together and collaborated to build what would become the top female youth development platform in the world. The grass roots leadership and cooperation was unprecedented in American youth soccer, and the ECNL continues to be the most progressive and innovative development platform in the country.
The Girls 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 Girls 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.
