PUTTING OUR PLAYERS IN A POSITION
TO SUCCEED WITH A PROVEN PATHWAY!
PLAY FOR MORE
The Boys ECNL provides our membership with more meaningful matches (potential promotion/relegation), meaning that they’ll be playing for more. With increased competition, we’ll be igniting a competitive spark in our players.
BE LED BY THE BEST
Clubs play a vital part in the development of a person/player but our coaches are the leaders: responsible for setting the standards and showing the way. SRU has put together a coaching staff that we feel is the best in the North Bay to compete in the Boys ECNL.
Our mission as a club in the Boys ECNL is to make sure that we are not only developing people first & players second, but also putting them in a position to succeed: where they can secure college opportunities. The Boys ECNL provides immeasurable college exposure.
ECNL NATIONAL SHOWCASES & REGIONAL EVENTS
The second part of increasing the visibility of our players is the Boys ECNL National Events (Showcases) & Regional Events, this allows College scouts from across the country to gather, watch & gain insight into our players. This eventually leads to commitments.
ADDED POSTSEASON VALUE
Teams from each Conference within the Boys ECNL have the opportunity to qualify for the National Playoffs, providing an added layer of postseason play & exposure for teams.

EMBRACE THE PROVEN PATHWAY of ECNL
ECNL DESTINATION: COLLEGE
When it comes to being a part of the ECNL, college soccer is the target destination for almost every single player in our club. This is the goal of the league and a goal of our club: develop people/players for collegiate programs.
GET OUR PLAYERS RECOGNIZED
ECNL National Events are the best identification platforms in the country, and provides our players with the best chance at being scouted: ECNL is the dominant supplier of college soccer athletes.
BECOME A PART OF A DOMINANT BRAND
At their core, the ECNL brand is a platform that fosters a culture of development to lead players down a proven pathway of soccer successes: league credibility of housing elite talent.
FOSTER DEVELOPMENT FOR THE NEXT LEVEL
There are a select few that will have what it takes to play professionally, whether domestically or overseas. It’s our mission to develop those players in-house and put them in a position to play the best and to be the best. SRU & ECNL has working relationships with MLS and USL clubs both locally & regionally.
