Our Boys Academy Program is excited to announce our acceptance into the
Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) for the 2021-2022 season under the Cleveland Force SC banner.

This move will allow Cleveland Force SC to continue to provide the highest level of national competitive league programming, with two varied seasonal calendar options:

• 10-month Super Cup for U15-U19 and conventional 10-month for U13-U14 ages

• 7-month National Competition for U15-U19 (post HS participation)

“We are excited and humbled to be joining ECNL Boys for this upcoming season. Our mission is to create an unparalleled development environment for our players and this acceptance immensely supports our core mission. This opportunity allows our club to fully integrate our talented player pools while also further supporting our players and their local community programs. We look forward to working with the other clubs in the league to create the best environment possible for the soccer players of Northeast Ohio." - Everett Palache, CFSC Director of Coaching.

After many years as founding members of the former Boys Development Academy and current MLS Next Academy leagues, we have made the decision that the ECNL platform best serves our players, our club structure, and our community.

The Boys ECNL will be our top youth national competitive platform, of which will provide the following benefits to our club’s players, parents, and staff:

• National Competition platform with Regional Divisions and National Playoffs
• National College Showcases for player exposure through 6 National Events
• Player-Centered Identification Programs through the ECNL National Training Camp
• Club and Coach Development Programs
• Health and Education Resources
• Players have the opportunity to play with their High School programs in the Fall AND participate in a top national league (7-month program)

Tryouts for the Boys ECNL National platform will begin May 3rd. CLICK HERE for more details on how to register.
