There seems to be a lot of discussion and confusion about the difference between ECNL and the (NPL) National Premier League.

A lot of parents will be making decisions in the next month or so to determine which league is best for their child.

For those parents..... can anyone (coaches included) provide some fair and balanced feedback based on knowledge and real-life experiences vs. opinion.

Below is from the General Discussion section of the forum from about a month ago.

NPL is not a comparable alternative to ECNL, and is populated by B/C teams in areas where there are ECNL clubs. It is something non-ECNL clubs try to sell, and I think US Club Soccer tries to help out non-ECNL clubs by creating NPL leagues.

There are a slew of them. The most recent NPL creation (which may be what is being sold to you) is the South Central Premier League, consisting of Blitz United SC (Okla.), Dynamos SC (Tx), Eclipse SC (Tx),Houston Express SC (Tx), Liverpool FC America (Tx)and Space City FC (Tx).

These groups seem far below the level of NTex ECNL competition. SCPL is at least a step below PLW which is at least a step below ECNL.

The actual "National League" is selective and does indeed have top national teams, but NPL (for girls) is a different less competitive animal.

How are these teams "created"? are there tryouts? Are Clubs in both Premier and ECNL?
