Several Dallas girls soccer clubs have joined the newly formed Elite Clubs National League slated to begin play next fall.  Solar, Sting, D'Feeters and FC Dallas girls are listed among the 40 inaugural members of the ECNL.  The Elite Clubs National League will be comprised of three age divisions U15, U16 & U17.  Teams will compete for individual age group championships as well as an overall club national championship.  The goal is a ten game regular season for each team.

US Club Soccer will assist in the league's administration and event operations, including marketing and public relations.  In addition to the ECNL being integrally involved in US Club Soccer's current id2 player identification and development program, future plans include the league's involvement in an older girls' identification and development program as well.

There will be five national showcase tourneys for the ECNL that each club will be required to participate in at least three of.  The five events are:
Eclipse Select Challenge Cup: Aug. 14-16, 2009, in Chicago
NCAA Women's College Cup: Dec. 4-6, 2009, in College Station, Texas
Disney's Soccer Showcase: Dec. 31, 2009-Jan. 3, 2010, in Orlando, Fla.
Las Vegas Showcase: March 2010
PDA Showcase: May 2010 in Zaraphath, NJ
