    Anyone have an idea of the college coach turn out for ECNL playoffs next month in Seattle? Is it more than the turn out at the other events like Phoenix, Texas, etc...?

    Coach attendance at the playoffs last year was similar in numbers and mixture to the spring Phoenix showcase. We will see if that changes with DA in the mix this year.

    Chicago had a large number of coaches at Champions League games. Not many at all for other levels of play. DA did affect spring Phoenix Showcase numbers, in my opinion. I know others were happy with the numbers and turnout, but having been there for 2 years prior, I think the numbers were definitely lower, but still respectable. I would expect the same for Seattle. Hopefully decent.

    Yeah. Looks like DA has it's playoffs at the same time in Oceanside. Again, the coaches will have to divide and conquer. So lame.

    I can tell you last year in the North American Cup we had the following coaches for U16; Day 1 - 33, Day 2 - 22, Day 3 - 16, and Day 4 Final - 11
    Prior year in the Champions league we had the following coaches for U15: Day 1 - 73, Day 2 - 88, Day 3 - 33

    That sounds like a pretty good turn out. Hopefully it's similar this year.

    I think the North American numbers are still respectable. It didn't look like that many, but I do know that there can be more than we think since coaches don't always stay all game or even sit. How was the recruitment efforts or coaches interest between the two years?

    Both years overall were very good but i would say at the two different championships the activity was higher the U15 year. That being said, that was our biggest event by far for the U15 year and then most of our other events for the U16 year were very well attended. In seemed interest during the beginning of the U15 year felt like the coach's were just getting a feel for this age group. The interest picked up in the spring of the U15 year with recruiting and general activity being very high from ECNL spring showcase U15 year until PDA of the U16 year.

    U15
    ECNL Fall Showcase -42 total over 3day
    Surf Cup - 41 total over 4 days
    ECNL Spring Showcase - 92 over 3 days
    ECNL Championships - Champions League - 128 over 3 days

    US soccer age in between years

    U16
    ECNL Fall Showcase - 105 over 3 day
    Silverlakes Showcase - 79 over 3 days remember this was that really bad weather weekend as well
    Players Showcase - 134 over 3 days
    ECNL Spring Showcase -139 over 3 days
    PDA - 129 over 3 days
    ECNL Championship North American - 82 over 4 days

    Leading teams in the u15, u16 and u17 SW ECNL look strong heading into NJ and playoffs. I'm confident there will be coaches aplenty on the sidelines of those teams.
