Player Values

Competitive Teams

The Rising Competitive Program will appeal to players at the top of their game when they exit the Youth Academy phase and want to continue their rapid upward trajectory or are looking to play a high level of soccer. Without having to travel for in-season games. Your player is provided with a higher level of coaching, preparation, and competition than the Select Program offered. 

Competitive players follow an intricately designed curriculum aimed at helping players build their soccer IQs, technical proficiency, and mental and physical conditioning as they prepare to advance to the elite levels of play. In addition, our Coaches are adept at keeping players motivated and maintaining healthy interactions with their teammates while maintaining the balance between productivity and enjoyment. 

Our competitive teams compete in local, statewide, and regional league offerings that cover the spectrum of pathways in preparing your player for the next level. 

Our Boys Program

The Elite Academy League (EA) is composed of member clubs representing elite competitive clubs in their market and have shown to be of the standard and will benefit from being part of this platform.  By unifying clubs from within the conferences, the EA has maintained the defining standards of previous elite platforms with a collective approach to making sure the platform sits atop the youth landscape. 

The EA has a mission to provide a National Platform with a standards-based league giving clubs the ability to provide a full developmental model and pathway with top competition and exposure. In addition, this league will serve to provide a seamless elite pathway for our players to excel in the competitive landscape. 

Our Girls Program

The ECNL Girls Regional League (ECNL Regional League) was founded to improve the daily environment for girls’ youth soccer players through a collaborative club-based development program featuring competition, player identification, and coaching and club development platforms. The Girl’s ECNL Regional League will include regular-season conference games and cross-conference events, and qualifying teams will advance to the ECNL Regional League Post Season event, held in conjunction with the ECNL Girl’s Post Season.

The Girl’s ECNL Regional League is based on grass-roots collaboration and innovation values. It 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 Girl’s ECNL Regional League will raise training, competition, club organization, and coaching standards in a holistic development program.

About Arkansas Rising

About

The purpose of Arkansas Rising is about players playing at the appropriate level to enhance their individual player development instead of just forming teams.  We believe that the overall level of training will improve, therefore creating a more challenging playing environment for each player, regardless of their placement within the club.  Research shows that when a player is placed at the appropriate level, their opportunity for growth will 'rise'.  This partnership expands our talent and the depth created will lead to more accurate player placement thus allowing more room for individual players to grow from within the organization.
