Inaugural Boys ECNL National Training Camp kicks off in the Bahamas
RICHMOND, VA (Via Boys ECNL) – The Boys Elite Clubs National League has announced the participants and schedule for the first annual Boys ECNL National Training Camp. The 2018 Boys ECNL National Training Camp is taking place from August 2-6 2018 in Nassau, Bahamas in collaboration with the Bahamas Football Association (BFA).
For the first time ever, over 30 players born in 2001, 2002 and 2003 will participate in the Boys ECNL National Training Camp. These players will learn from and participate in training sessions and 11v11 games, with the opportunity to learn from a staff of some of the country’s top youth coaches.
Friday evening will feature the first of four community sessions led by Boys ECNL technical staff at the Bahamas National Football Stadium. The staff will work with local youth and coaches to share ideas and collaborate. The first full day will conclude with Boys ECNL National Training Camp attendees competing against some of the countries top players in two integrated competitions.
Selections were made based on performance in Boys ECNL conference and National Event competitions this season, the Elite National Premier League (ENPL) Post Season, and recommendations throughout the Boys ECNL inaugural season.
There is no cost to players aside from travel to and from the camp. Staffing, lodging, meals and training gear are provided by the ECNL and Nike.
