Girls Club Rankings Sep 09, 2022

SoccerWire Top 100 Girls Clubs revealed for September 2022 as new season kicks off

[EDITOR’S NOTE] On Friday, September 9, 2022 @ 6:00PM ET we discovered an error in our rankings formula where it was accidentally double-counting points for U17s and missing the actual performances of U16s.  The ranking has been corrected. We apologize for the error.

With the 2022-2023 youth soccer season officially getting started, SoccerWire provides an updated look at its Top 100 Girls Soccer Club Rankings.

Solar SC remains the nation’s No. 1 ranked club after capturing both the U13 and U14 ECNL national titles, and finishing as the ECNL’s Overall Club Champion for the 2021-2022 season. The Dallas area club also has the largest share of U.S. Youth National Team players, another key factor in SoccerWire’s club ranking formula.

Georgia club Tophat secures the No. 2 spot following an impressive campaign in the Girls Academy, in which they were one of only three clubs to qualify for the postseason in all six age groups. The club also has an extensive group of USYNT roster pool members.

Michigan’s Nationals SC climbed up to No. 3 on the back of their Girls Academy U14 national title, with 4 out of 5 teams finishing top of their group in the GA playoffs. Their U13, U14, and U15 teams also finished 3rd, 1st, and 8th respectively in the overall regular season points per game standings. Real Colorado comes in at No. 4, coming off an outstanding season in the ECNL, highlighted by a national championship victory in the U17 age group as well as boasting players on USYNT CONCACAF Championship rosters in both U15 and U17 events in 2022.  Rounding out the top 5 is San Diego Surf, a club placing 12th overall on-field points total, but coming in only 2nd to Solar in credits for USYNT call-ups over the past 3 years.

While 7 of the top 10 clubs represent the ECNL, GA clubs occupied 2 out of the top 3 spots, with member club Nationals claiming the best team performance points accumulation in the country. As the top tier of girls club soccer in the United States, ECNL and GA members account for the entirety of SoccerWire’s Top 100.

SoccerWire’s rankings are generated through a formulaic system based entirely on team performances in the top national leagues in the U.S. (ECNL and Girls Academy on the female side, along with MLS NEXT and ECNL for boys), as well as U.S. National Team event call-ups and direct professional contract signings in MLS, NWSL or a top-flight foreign league.

To view specific points totals per club, and all the players call-ups used in our calculations, simply click on each club name below, or visit our national directory of over 900 US-based youth soccer clubs. For more information on SoccerWire’s club rankings criteria, click here.
