Boys Elite Clubs National League (ECNL)


The Boys ECNL is made up of 71 member clubs. This purpose of this league is to support, and give clubs, full freedom in the development of some of their elite level players. It is a collaborative club-based development program that features competition, player identification, and coaching and club development platforms. The Rapids Youth Soccer Club is a part of the Mountain Conference, which is comprised of five other clubs.

Selection Process

All Boys ECNL teams are hand selected by Elite Programming Staff. Prior to roster selection, players are constantly being evaluated and given opportunities to train at the elite level, if CRYSC Staff see fit. Elite program staff also scout league games, host local regional evaluation sessions, watch high school games and bring players in to train with current ECNL teams over the course of the season.
