The ECNL is the nation’s leading youth soccer development platform. The ECNL respects and celebrates the unique individuality of every youth soccer player and club, supporting and enabling them to unleash their unfettered passion and fierce tenacity in striving to achieve their potential.

The ECNL mission to Raise the Game is a total commitment to create the best possible environment for players, coaches, referees and administrators, with a determination to constantly question convention and challenge the status quo in youth sports.


La Roca FC chose to participate in the ECNL, short for Elite Clubs National League, because it is the top development and identification competition platform for youth soccer players in Utah and the United States. We know that our players will receive the best opportunities to showcase their talent and abilities competing in this top league. This will be La Roca FC’s fourth year in the ECNL.

La Roca FC ladies will participate in the Northwest Division with 14 other clubs from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Utah. The young men will participate in the Mountain Division along with 12 other clubs from Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. Both Boys and Girls will field 6 teams each for the 2023-2024 season in the U18/19-U13 age groups.
