Elite Clubs National League Teams
The Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) program provides the optimum developmental environment for the nation's top youth soccer players, coaches and referees by emphasizing development through quality training and limited, meaningful competition. The Dallas Texans are proud to have its ECNL teams at the top of its developmental structure. The system begins with our U-6 to U-10 youth academy teams and, supported by the soccer school of excellence, it provides the platform for players to move into the U-11 to U-18 youth select division.
