To get the opportunity to play college soccer, you need to be seen as a youth player playing against the best players in the country. Coaches want to see the best against the best, because it is the only way to get an accurate assessment of performance and potential.
The ECNL operates the 6 biggest college showcase events in the country. Each showcase attracts coaches from over 200 universities across the country - from every region, and from every level. The only teams that play in these events are ECNL teams. The competition is the best against the best, in the most prominent and prestigious environment in the country.
