Qualifying boys teams in five age groups from 14-U to 19-U from the United Soccer Clubs (USC) Champions League will advance to the ENPL Playoffs in June 2018. These teams will earn qualification to the postseason ENPL Playoffs based on their performances throughout the regular season.
The USC Champions League is made up of twenty-seven clubs from the Houston, Austin and San Antonio metro areas.
The United Soccer Clubs was launched in Fall 2015 as an expansive, club-driven model led by motivated Directors of Coaching in south Texas. Since its inception, USC has made an impact in the NPL with the USC Champions League, hosted the first-ever LaLiga Formation Methodology course, expanded its West Division substantially and shown full support of Players First, id² and Player Development Programs (PDPs).
“United Soccer Clubs is incredibly excited about the ENPL and the platform it will provide our top boys teams,” said Pat O’Toole, USC President. “The ECNL and US Club Soccer are the top brands in the game with a proven track record of providing incredible programing for their members. The ENPL will provide the top boys teams in the USC the opportunity to compete against the top boys teams and clubs in the country. It should also give players additional opportunities to gain valuable exposure to college coaches. 2017 will be an exciting time for our league.”
