We are a part of the Heartland Conference which plays teams from Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, and Nebraska. Heartland is broken up into two divisions during the regular season, the North and South Division.

What is ECNL? 

The Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) is a US Club Soccer-sanctioned league founded in 2009 to enhance the developmental experience of the female youth soccer players in the United States through:

  • Improving the competitive environment through the creation of a true national competitive league with multiple flights;

  • Improving the process for identifying elite female soccer players for U.S. Soccer’s Youth National Teams by way of a systematic scouting and identification program based on national competitions; and

  • Improving the daily training environment at top female youth soccer clubs through developing best practices and training and organizational guidelines for its member clubs.


The goal of the ECNL is to change the landscape for elite female soccer players in the United States with innovative, player-centered programming and to enhance the overall experience by creating a better, more enjoyable, and more successful player, coach, and club development model.

In an effort to provide competition and development opportunities for a deeper player pool, the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) started to expand their footprint by creating the ECNL Regional League in the 2019-20 season.  The ECNL Regional League provides great competition within a professional environment.

The ECNL Regional League teams travel for league games and compete in the exact same structure as the Girls ECNL Texas Conference. The ECNL Regional League provides a tremendous opportunity for players to develop their skills, compete against a very high level of competition, and prepares themselves for the collegiate competition in the future.
