"East Meadow SC is privileged to be included as a member of the Boys ECNL program. This is a fantastic achievement for our membership and coaching staff who have remained committed to our club synergy model and culture.

-Ruairi McGuinness, East Meadow Director of Coaching
The Boys Elite Clubs National League (Boys ECNL) was founded to improve the daily environment for boys youth soccer players through a collaborative club-based development program featuring competition, player identification, and coaching and club development platforms. The Boys ECNL will include both regular season conference games and cross-conference events, and qualifying teams from the Boys ECNL will advance to the post-season Elite National Premier League (ENPL) Playoffs.
The Boys ECNL is based on the values of grass-roots collaboration and innovation, and supports the independence and freedom of coaches and clubs to fully manage the development path for their players, including the system and style of play, the competitive calendar, and all aspects of the development path. The Boys ECNL will raise standards in training, competition, club organization, and coaching in a holistic development program.
The Boys ECNL will be led by a Board of Directors elected by the member clubs.
