    I believe your right no way rebels ie have ecnl without any history of fielding teams yet. Who knows if rebels with give rb any love with any of his teams from the ie and allow them to take part but train else where like stikers do with their 05 team.

    All depends on how Rebels wants to play it, the main club will decide where each team, age group will be based out of.

    Similar to Strikers, who wanted to field the most competitive teams in age group, are allowing for some teams to be based outside the "main hub".

    RB fielding an ECNL team(s) right next to Arsenal would make for some juicy gossip and drama.

    Strikers 05 ECNL has pulled some talent away from Arsenal 05 ECNL, since they're both based in the I.E.

    Going to be interesting if RB and Rebels IE get any of the ECNL teams.

    Seems logical to me that, based on his track record, it won't be long before he is coaching an ECNL team.

    But during that tenure he had a monopoly on ECNL in the IE. I hope (for the kids sake) Rebels stick with the Coaches they have in SD and stead clear of the RB and his demeaning coaching style.

    He inherited good teams / players / platform at Arsenal and was successful in remaining competitive, but once Legends got DA it was a definitive game changer and his teams weren't the same with the shift in platform and players exodus.

    Arsenal is still rebuilding as Rich Boon's 1st season was more of stabilizing the ship and next season or two will be a measure of what he can do with the ECNL program.

    This season, 2018-19, he reinforced the 03s with Legends IE players and brought over a 06 team to field an 06 ECNL team.

    On the horizon, perhaps a reloading of the 04 team to streamline locations.

    A lot happening in the IE, the more choices and competition hopefully for the better of the product.

    To me it will be more interesting if the teams are based in San Diego. I believe a lot of top players currently head north to Albion DA and Surf. This could be a very large nail in Albion's coffin.

    This will be very interesting to watch. Albion's DA didn't do much to Rebels flagship team their 01-02 girls team, which in my opinion the players they got are better players than the ones that left to DA from that age group.

    I don't think Albion is dying, if they survive the TS fiasco and never were able to recruit top talent away from Rebels, this doesn't change much. Both clubs have their own type of clientele, in which the only edge I see is that kids that play for Sharks ECNL/Surf DA will be the ones heading to Rebels.

    This is good news for players South of SD who no longer have to commute north. Wonder how this is going to change the rosters of ECNL teams since Rebels' tryouts were done mid March, Surf/Albion/Sharks last couple weeks.

    There it was some player shuffling in the 01 and 00 groups when both got their DA/ECNL respectively. I can't speak of the younger groups as I don't know many people in those age groups. Because of RM high level of coaching, Rebels end up with the better talent in that age group and end up winning that NC, meanwhile Albion struggle big time.

    A long time coming is absolutely correct! If ECNL would have played their cards right...and added Legends, Beach, LAGSD, Pats, Breakers and the other deserving Clubs across the counrty...DA would have never stood a chance on the girls side. Elitest Soccer at is finest. Now they are scrambling and adding Clubs that would have never made the cut 3 years ago. I’ll I can say is shame on you ECNL. You are getting what you deserved. You should have added clubs like the Rebel’s many years ago!!!

    Pats did not deserve ECNL on the girls side, and Breakers is a club formed by a merger to get ECNL less than two years ago. Beach and Legends were more deserving, but people seem to forget that both were relatively new, growing clubs with limited track records of success at national/higher levels when ECNL was first formed. Ironically, ECNL's club separation may have helped them gain those successful track records that make their exclusion seem more egregious than it actually was.

    ECNL should have dropped Arsenal and added Legends when Arsenal lost most of their fields and better coaches 6-8 years ago. And they needed a South Bay and more San Diego clubs. You can blame that on Slammers and Surf (and a lesser extent Blues) not wanting to cut off their recruiting pipeline and be more responsible for developing talent from a young age. Member clubs essentially had veto rights for new entrants.

    DA included a bunch of "clubs" that were not "elite" (or JV's that were previously non-existent) to create their league, and the dilution has left things where both DA and ECNL are filling the regions with clubs that would not make the cut if there was only one top league.

    The competition from DA has helped focus ECNL leadership on making their product better. The club defections between leagues seem to be going only in one direction now. I would suggest that DA is the league that needs to do some soul searching. Unfortunately, I am not sure US Soccer has a soul. They are the arrogant undead of the soccer world.
