    I figured that I would get a thread started since this is still the top league in the country for pre-college young women until proven otherwise.

    It will be interesting to see which teams stay relatively intact and which ones have huge amounts of roster change with the birth year changes.

    I'm okay with a lively debate and differing opinions it is one of the things that makes America great. I have friends that have very different opinions on lots of things including politics and I am okay with that. It helps the process when you have to defend your position vigorously.

    For us ECNL newbies (U14's)...when should we expect to see the season schedules post - same time as usual...around the end of August?

    Early August your team manger should give the schedule to all the parents. It won't be up on the ECNL website until the end of August.

    This could be the last hurrah for ECNL. Should be a great season.

    From the clubs I'm familiar with in the ECNL circuit, they are separating their 02's and 01's and creating two strong teams. By familiar clubs, I mean Blues, WCFC, Surf, Slammers and Strikers. I think the club mentality is that they know they can build 2 strong teams, regardless, so why not embrace the change and go in 100%.

    On a side note, I do know of one non ECNL team, which is very competitive, that have chosen to play a few of their strong '02's up to create a powerhouse side for '01. It's definitely a team by team and age group by age group decision, but I see more changes than not.

    In my humble opinion, we will see completely new teams in the ECNL '02 and '01 age groups. Can't speak for others, but I'm definitely interested and excited to see the coming season as well as big summer tourneys with new teams and faces. Given the DA announcements, this ECNL season is suddenly even more exciting and could be very memorable.

    Curious if anyone knows, how much of the money paid by the parents/club for players in the "Academy" programs go towards the U.S. Soccer program? If any......This can't be just to identifying players and getting them a 4th day of practice.

    Thoughts on the AZ ECNL teams? Serenos and SC del Sol. They seem average at best. A few good teams at certain age groups...but certainly do have a tough time vs Cali teams. My DD will be playing in the Far West Regional League and the NPL this year which I am happy about. Next year she will be a U14 which is the starting year for ECNL.

    The forward on the U17 soon to be U18 Del Sol team is the real deal. She will be a good college player. If you don't have a top notch defender matched up to her you are in trouble.

    It appears (based solely on wins/loses) the SCDS club has the better teams. I just checked the SW conference tables and every team except the u18's (now graduated out) have better records than Sereno in the conference.

    Yes SCDS is consistently putting out better teams vs Sereno...not only at the ECNL level but the other teams as well.

    Do these two (2) AZ clubs share the same geography...or are they isolated to certain areas within the state?

    Just curious if parents in Arizona could choose between these two (2) options if they are close to each other distance-wise?

    The clubs are actually rather close to each other....close enough so that if you wanted to have your DD play ECNL distance between the two make little to no difference.
