ECNL Overview

MISSION: McLean Youth Soccer's Travel Program develops all components of competitive youth soccer for boys and girls in an environment that promotes excellence, sportsmanship, self-confidence, and respect.

GOAL: McLean Youth Soccer's goal is to create the best developmental environment for aspiring players to fulfill their potential. MYS believes the ECNL provides the best format for player development in the country, and is excited to offer this opportunity to players at the top of its developmental structure. The Club was honored to be invited into the League in February, 2011. MYS was one of only 14 clubs (out of nearly 90 that applied) invited to join that year.

ECNL Director Clyde Watson sums up MYS's goals: "The ECNL provides our players and coaches a unique platform to train and showcase elite level players, manage their soccer participation, and allow our coaches to experience an unrivaled coaching environment."

STYLE OF PLAY: McLean Youth Soccer coaches and technical staff are dedicated to teaching players an elegant, possession game rooted in quick, confident combination play, yet integrating individual flair and creativity. MYS strives to impart this style at all levels of our Club, including Travel, CCL and ECNL teams.

MYS COMMITMENT TO ECNL: McLean Youth Soccer believes the ECNL has become the leader in youth development in the U.S. today. It provides the top competition in the country. As well, the ECNL maintains close ties with U.S. Soccer at multiple levels, creating an ideal platform for the identification of top players.
