ECNL Boys

About

The mission of the Kings Hammer Elite Program is to offer one of the most advanced developmental environments available in the nation, catering to players aged U10 to U19. This program delivers elite-level coaching, high level facilities, and competitive opportunities to its participants.  

Our teams compete at the highest levels, notably in the prestigious ECNL (Elite Clubs National League) and ECNL-RL Leagues, facing off against top national opponents. Additionally, our players will showcase their abilities throughout the year, providing valuable exposure to collegiate and US Soccer Developmental Staff. Kings Hammer’s Elite Program strives to prepare players for success at the highest levels of competition while fostering their growth as individuals both on and off the field. 

Kings Hammer Elite has produced players that have went on and played at the state, regional, national, collegiate, and professional levels.

For the 2024/2025 season, Kings Hammer will follow US Youth Soccer guidelines and will organize its teams by birth year. Interested players must register based on their birth year. 
The Kings Hammer philosophy for forming teams is as follows:

Our team forming philosophy revolves around our evaluation process which is tailored to each individual player within our club. Continuously assessing player’s strengths, weaknesses, and developmental needs allows us to determine the most conducive environment for their growth. Through various evaluation methods employed year-round, we meticulously track each player’s progress and tailor action plans accordingly. This could entail providing guest playing opportunities across different tiers within the club, ensuring players are placed where they can thrive and maximize their potential. Our commitment lies in creating personalized pathways that foster both individual and team success.

ECNL Boys Tryouts for the 2024/2025 Season have concluded. If you are interested in joining a team, please contact the Program Director above.
