Top Players Across the Country Gather at the ECNL National Training Camp

RICHMOND, VA (August 16, 2016) – The 2016 ECNL National Training Camp took place in Portland, Oregon from July 28 – August 1, 2016, with almost 90 top players from across the country coming together to train and compete with the best in the league under the guidance of top coaches.  As always, with top level competition, impeccable facilities, and an incredible atmosphere of excitement, the 2016 National Training Camp was an unmatched experience for the players.

The ECNL National Training Camp featured three training sessions and two 11v11 matches for the players, as well as the opportunity to attend a Portland Thorns NWSL match.  The camp was held primarily at the pristine soccer facilities of the University of Portland, with a special day concluding the camp with competition and a banquet at Nike World Headquarters.  As part of the ECNL’s commitment to both player and club development, the camp training program focused on improving player decision-making, and a technical report of key concepts from the camp was circulated to all ECNL clubs after the camp.

Perhaps most exciting, at the end of the camp, the top 11 performers of the event were named to the ECNL Best XI and selected for an all-expenses paid soccer trip of a lifetime.  The ECNL Best XI traveled directly from camp to New York City on August 1, where they were provided all access tickets to the International Champions Cup match between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, and were introduced at halftime in front of a sold out crowd at MetLife Stadium.  In addition, the ECNL Best XI attended the training sessions of both teams the day before the big match, with exclusive access to the Bayern Munich and Real Madrid players for autographs and group photos.  Adding to the excitement, the players also enjoyed a morning in Central Park and a private performance at the Argentinian Consulate with musical group NewDocta. It was a true cultural experience meshed with meeting some of the best professional soccer players in the world, part of the ECNL’s commitment to inspire players to dream big.

The 2016 ECNL Best XI:

  • Tess Boade – Real Colorado
  • Gabrielle Brummett – FC Stars of Massachusetts
  • Sarah Clark – Michigan Hawks
  • Clair Constant – McLean Youth Soccer
  • Caitlin Cosme – Albertson Fury
  • Julie Doyle – San Diego Surf
  • Mireya Grey – Crossfire Premier
  • Catarina Macario – San Diego Surf
  • Alyssa Malonson – Challenge SC
  • Sydney Simmons – Solar Chelsea SC
  • Anna Smith – Crossfire Premier

Congratulations to all of the Amazing Young Women selected to the 2016 ECNL National Training Camp!

Hawks 99 win National ECNL Championship

on .

Hawks99ECNL Nationals

Both teams took the field less than 24 hours after lightning delays pushed back the U17 semifinals, leading to a plodding, tired affair between the Hawks and Force.

Drama took the forefront once again when Catherine Dager beat the offside trap, latching onto a driven long ball from one of the Michigan center backs. De Anza’s goalkeeper stopped Dager’s initial effort, but she followed up to slot home and put the Hawks on top in extra time.

A fascinating tactical battle between De Anza’s whirring possession machine and Michigan’s effective counter attacking, the fatigue certainly left its mark on both sides. Michigan’s attackers Alexxis Lipsey and Grace Krygler looked to take advantage of opening on the break, with Lipsey coming close on more than one occasion during the first 90 minutes.

Golden chances were few and far between. Michigan’s Sarah Clark fired a dangerous free kick into the wall.Luca Deza got on the end of a Samantha Tran cut back, only to spurn it high of the goal in the second half, in what turned out to be one of De Anza’s best chances of the game.

As the game progressed, Deza looked the most likely to create for the Force, though Michigan’s impressive back line was consistently up to the task. Abby Willerer led the effort from central defense, with Jaimie Leas solid and steady in goal.

In the end, Dager’s effort proved to be enough, as the Hawks held on over the final 10 minutes of extra time to kick off the celebrations.

Congratulations to Coach Doug Landefeld and the U17 Hawks for beating De Anza Force in the ECNL National Championship.  The Hawks won in double overtime 1 - 0. 

Congratulations girls on adding another star!!

Our Wolves-Hawks crest will now have 13 stars to represent the 13 National titles our teams have won!
