RICHMOND, VA (Via ECNL) – The Elite Clubs National League has announced that Nebraska club Elite Girls Academy will be joining the ECNL’s Midwest Conference beginning in the 2017-2018 ECNL Season as a new member club. The ECNL will be the only national league in which the club will compete, and the focal point of its competitive efforts.

EGA is the leading club in Nebraska soccer, qualifying teams into both the USYS and NPL National Championships in the 2015-16 season, and placing dozens of players into Division 1 college soccer over the past several years. With a holistic player development philosophy and coaches committed to ongoing learning and development, EGA has created a top level development environment in Nebraska.

ECNL logo“We are very excited that EGA will be bringing the ECNL platform to the best female soccer players in Nebraska,” said President Christian Lavers. “EGA has developed great players and teams that play with great style, and their philosophy and mission is totally consistent with the ECNL mission.”

“As an organization we are extremely excited to be officially announced as a new member club for the 2017 season,” said EGA Technical Director Marcus Kelcher. “The ECNL will provide our players with the ultimate developmental platform and will allow us greater college recruiting exposure opportunities moving forward. Since 2009 the ECNL has set the absolute standard for elite level soccer on the girls’ side of the game, and we believe the bar set by the ECNL will only continue to raise the game for elite level female players for years to come.”

EGA will begin formal competition in the ECNL in August 2017. Additional new clubs will be announced in the ECNL in the coming months.
