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 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.
