The point of the ecnl is for the best players in a certain area to go to these clubs so they can have the best kids in the age group.
Same as the DA.
But thatís in a perfect world.
On Long Island we have political issues.
Money, kissasses and hate for clubs.
With the new announcement from east meadow to take the ecnl-rl away from Smithtown and give it to famindale.
Iím still scratching my head??
Why donít they just keep it for their own club?
When you have 25 plus on a roster that with the addition of a couple more would be two teams.
Long Island soccer is a disease.
And parents are sheep

Or every single other league for that matter. Me thinks OP has an overinflated view of their little Mia's team and is frustrated that nobody else sees it. Probably the same parent who screams "UNLUCKY!" every time their kid gets the ball stripped or shoots 10 feet off goal, lol.

Well, Long Island soccer is certainly funny. When your kid's team in very competitive already and the DA or ECNL options are twice as expensive and rostering 24, who wants to travel an hour or more to and from a practice then sit through 1 and a half hours of practice for soccer that's really not much better with trainers were aren't better than the one your kid already plays for. It's almost 4 hours of time after school and really just not worth it with most kids busy schedules as it is, who wants to sit in traffic for two hours a day?

Agreed, but then what's the issue? If you and your kid are happy with her team, level of competitiveness, size of the roster, time committment, training and price point, why come on here and complain about ECNL?

PS-Unless you live in a Montauk lighthouse, there are certainly GDA and/or ECNL options less than an hour away...

The view of the ocean is amazing! The sitting in traffic sucks though. The problem with the DA and ECNL is thet're supposedly a big draw for college coaches, but the teams just aren't any good. I don't see why parents should have to get dragged through the whole mess that is Long Island soccer.

Let's face it, there's a few more easy games than that!

I'll agree to disagree, but even so, still better than playing those dreadful EDP rugby teams!
