I do not agree at all. There is still a huge difference between most local travel teams and second and even third teams at established clubs which generally have better coaching and better facilities. In addition, playing with and around better players gives these girls a goal. In general, I believe you get what you pay for. My daughter was a bottom player on a third team. We put in the extra money and she put in the extra practice time and she improved. She will now fight for a spot on the starting line up of the first this year. It was a fantastic experience with normal ups and downs. But I did not feel cheated or robbed of my money, I felt like my money was well spent. She did not get a huge scholarship, but she is committed to a very decent D1 school with a partial scholarship.


You don't necessarily get what you pay for. Look at Fury parents. Paying the highest fees around for no fields, a head coach who hasn't shown up yet, sub par coaching by unlicensed coaches, no uniforms yet, and little recruiting guidance.

Congratulations to you and your daughter. What worked for you was the fact that you both had a realistic game plan and knew which schools were within her reach both as a student as well as an athlete. I am sure academically she is challenged as well as athletically against very good talent as well. Too many parents do not have a realistic understanding about there daughters and think if they pay then it’s the clubs responsibility to get her into the college of her choice regardless of her athletic abilities. I am sure your daughter is now setting up her future (after college) in a great school and enjoying competitive soccer a win/win to me.

EM really sold those day dreamer parents on it hook line and “stinker”. Keep drinking the kool aid EM parents they have lots of for u don’t worry!!


It's merely a rebranding of the old NPL teams. Same teams, and players; it's just different banner to play under. The parents didn't design this, it was thrust on them by the league.

I agree. If D was looking for a top-25 D1 soccer experience, I would say that NE NPL/ECNL-Regional is not the place to be. But for D3 soccer or even lower-level D1 soccer, ECNL-Regional seems like a perfect fit. Good training environment, good exposure opportunities, clubs that are known to varying degrees to many of these college coaches.

The good thing would be that now NE NPL players, AKA ECNL Regional can play in the ECNL game.
Prior to this, only ECNL rostered players could play NE NPL but not vice versa.

“Stay in your own lane” there will never be any overlapping in league play, tournaments or showcases with ECNL teams. That is a separate division. If you are unaware of this then you need to reconfirm with your club and team. This is just a re-branding of those ECNL teams that played NPL and were called and played same second tier club ECNL teams. Now called ECNL Regional. This will be very successful for those players who play for the love of the game in a competitive atmosphere.

Same players, same trainers, same environment, same level of soccer with a league only identified different letters. For much more money.

who you kidding? The SUSA NE NPL team lost every game and the new EMSC ECRL team has 1 player that could even sniff ECNL. Its a money grab as it always is. False hopes, false dreams and empty wallets.

True. At least the Smithtown NPL team was good! I think they finished first in their division. This EMSC ECRL? Not so much. But those credit card charges will be spot on!

This is not accurate. NE NPL players definitely had opportunities to play with their ECNL teams. Yes, they would need to be added to the ECNL roster, so there is a limit to how many (max ECNL roster is 30 I think). But there was no rule that prevented it.

At WC, they are not charging any more for ECNL-R than they did for NE NPL. Same players, same trainers, same environment, same level of soccer for the same amount of money (about 20% less than what ECNL costs).

SUSA only did that poorly in 1 age group in NPL. They did ok to very well in the other age groups.

SUSA finished ahead of Smithtown/EMSC in 3 of 5 age groups in NE NPL.

Happy to say my daughter is also at her #1 choice school after playing with World Class NPL teams. Her coach was very supportive and to this day she goes back to play summer U23 for him
