Six Tennessee Soccer Club (TSC) teams recently competed in prestigious tournaments in Seattle and Boston as part of the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) National Playoffs.
Four TSC Girls teams – 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004 – traveled to Seattle two TSC Boys teams – 2001 and 2003 – traveled to Boston to compete.
The Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) is one of the premier boys and girls soccer leagues in the United States. Participation is invite only. Teams must qualify based on their regular season play. TSC is one of only a few clubs in the country to have more than five teams represented in the boys and girls playoffs.
“We were thrilled to have six teams participating in the playoffs during our first year of competition in the ECNL,” said TSC ECNL Director Dean Blain. “Each team represented the club very well and performed at a high level. We knew this league would provide difficult competition for our players, which is exactly what we wanted. I couldn’t be more proud of how our players responded to that all year and raised their own level of play week in and week out.”
The 2003 Boys ECNL team advanced out of their group and then won their quarter-final match in Boston. This week they will travel to Denver to compete for the National Championship.
TSC has won two National Championships (2016 and 2017) and now has the chance to win their third in three consecutive seasons.
