December 31- January 2nd in Sanford Florida Elite Clubs from around the US gathered to kick off the very first Boys ECNL national showcase event. 

Three days of top quality talent and competition and the perfect end to one year and the start of a new. 

Our U/16,U/17 and U18/19 teams travelled to Florida to showcase their abilities in-front of a huge collection of colleges from all levels and states. 


Brown University 
Dartmouth College 
Georgia State University
New York University 
US Naval Academy

To name just a few watched on as 150 teams from ECNL clubs across all county battled it out in Florida for honors. 

Our U/16 Boys had a successful 3 days as they ended unbeaten with 2 ties and a win. Boys have really been working hard leading into this event and it showed. 

The U17 team had the honor of kicking off the clubs 1st ever ECNL national event against Florida Elite, and although the game ended in a 3-1 defeat it will always go down as a little piece of history. They did head back to TX on a 3-0 win over Albertson Fury of New York City. 

Finally our 18/19 boys played some incredible eye catching soccer filled with passion and commitment with the highlight being a 3-2 win having finding themselves 1-2 behind with 15 minutes left on the clock. 

We would like to thank ECNL for putting on a first class event for our players and we look forward to what’s next ahead.    

“I would personally like to thank ECNL for going that extra mile in what they do within these types of events.  It becomes more than just soccer… it is an experience and environment that helps these young men development on and off the field. We are proud to be a founding member of the Boys ECNL and look forward to more new chapters as the journey has only just begun”
