    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.

    Such a bummer, and a lot of money for possibly two games! My DD called this morning bright and early to let us know about the games being cancelled. Being from the southwest, she isn't used to that kind of weather or how fast it can hit Thank God they had a very good turn out at yesterday's game with CC's. Unfortunate.

    Same thing happened at Surf Cup in the last couple of years...definitely cuts into the exposure when players aren't on the pitch.

    Only two games but averaged over 50 CC's on sidelines. P5, solid middies, etc. It was definitely worth the trip IMO. Seattle should be more of the same....CC's that is, not rain lol

    The playoff draw was completed earlier today. Some interesting matchups in group play.

    With no ECNL games on Sunday it will be interesting to see how many coaches stay through the off day to see Monday and Tuesday's games versus catching a Saturday evening flight to San Diego for the DA event. I think it was a mistake for ECNL to leave an open date here instead of staggering games and playing on Sunday.

    The coaches already have divided and conquered previously and will continue to do so. We have already discussed this topic in nauseum . They have a built in inclement weather day on Sunday.
