GIRLS ELITE CLUBS NATIONAL LEAGUE FOR 2021-2022 SEASON
Cleveland, OH (March 16, 2021)

Cleveland Force Soccer Club is excited to announce our acceptance into the Girls Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) for the 2021-2022 season to begin August 2021 for the U13-U19 age groups.

The ECNL will provide our top female athletes with the nation’s highest level of competition and will serve as the top of our player pathway pyramid with the ECNL-Regional league just below.

In addition, our U10-U12 players will continue to participate in the Pre-ECNL regional league which provides Zone 1 players with advanced competition against other ECNL clubs.

“Cleveland Force Soccer Club is excited to become a new member of the Elite Clubs National League for the 2021-22 season. The strength of the ECNL in terms of the player exposure, competition, club collaboration and educational opportunities are unmatched. Having the ability to compete against the very best clubs in the country will provide our players with a development path into college and beyond. A pathway that now includes the ECNL and the ECNL Regional League gives us the ability to develop and showcase future generations of the top talent in NE Ohio. We look forward to collaborating with all member clubs in a continued effort to raise the game both regionally and nationally.”
- CFSC Girls Director, Rob Miller
“First and foremost, thank you to our families, the ECNL leadership, and all others involved in this process for believing in our player development environment. We look forward to working with the ECNL leadership and the clubs of the Ohio Valley Conference to provide the best experience possible for our members. This opportunity provides a pathway of quality competition and high-level exposure for our members as they prepare to play in high school, college, professionally, or the national team. Thanks to all those that helped make this opportunity possible!”
- CFSC Girls U9-U12 Director and Club Director of Coaching, Everett Palache
