How Well Is NTX Really Competing in ECNL? Empty How Well Is NTX Really Competing in ECNL?

Post by Guest 13/07/13, 09:20 am

ECNL Upperclassmen,

DD is going to be a U14 ECNL this year. I welcome some perspective on how well NTX is competing nationally in ECNL?

As I look at the U14s, I feel that ALL five ECNL teams are strong to very strong. Mathematically, one would think that condensing most, but certainly not all, of the top players on 5 teams versus +10 teams would make NTX more competitive nationally. I have a feeling that the 99,98, etc. felt the same way. If so, with the beauty of hindsight being 20/20, does the math hold true NTX is competing well nationally?

No agendas, just want perspective!

Looking at the standings, in 16 games, all the teams except one had 6 or less wins and one had 4? Is the rest of ECNL that bad? Looks like a two team league.

Population-wise - I'd expect North Texas to be very strong every year but the records for U13 are strange looking, that much parity? The GD for U13 looks odd as well - except when you look at the wins/ties.

NTX had great representation at ECNL Nationals... But if NTX wants to push to win it all every year, we need to lose one of the ECNL Clubs... Too diluted right now... ECNL is aware of this and I know people talk about who is the next ECNL Club in NTX, but we will lose a Club, before we gain another. Oklahoma has two great candidates for a second ECNL CLub, Blitz and OFC to keep the Texas Conference at 10 Teams. I would lean OFC to have teams is OKC.

Just for conversation....which club would be eliminated then?

Dallas Texans
Sting
FC Dallas
Solar FC
D'Feeters

And then...how would a club be eliminated? (criteria?)

I was referring to LHGCL for U13, not ECNL in my prior post. I would think to eliminate a team, they'd have to look at all ECNL age groups and determine which one is not competitive overall. Probably DF. The boy's side has a similar academy situation with competitiveness in Andromeda.

Quality vs Quantity is always a tough decision for leagues - only one provides sustainability and it's not quality.

If you're looking for a club recommendation, refer to the ECNL standings on an earlier post.  Which club has a team in each one U15, U16 and U17 ECNL Champions League US Finals.  You'll find:

1. Sting
2. Texans
3. FC Dallas

I can't say that I do either, but it was sent to me and I thought I would share just to provide
some insight into how the overall landscape in ECNL looks nationally. No idea how this is weighted.

Looks like:

15-10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 for U15-U17 placement in conference play.
10-9-8-7 for pool placement in U15-U17 Champions League Playoff Round play
7-6-5-4 for pool placement in U15-U17 North American League Playoff Round play

TBD how National Finals points will be assigned. for U15-U17.
