The ECNL Girls is excited to announce the rosters for the ECNL San Diego National Selection Games – powered by Beyond Pulse. There will be two National Selection Games in San Diego, one featuring U16/17 athletes and one featuring U18/19 players, and the two games will take place simultaneously on November 12, 2021 at 2:15 p.m. These games will be the first National Selection Games of the 2021-22 season. 

The ECNL National Selection Games are “all-star” matches that bring top players at each regular season ECNL National Event together for representative competition on the first day of the event. They are one component of the ECNL National Selection Program, which encompasses all player identification and development programs within the league. 

“We are thrilled to announce the rosters for the first National Selection Games of the season,” said ECNL Girls Commissioner Jen Winnagle. “These events highlight and reward some of the top youth players in the league with the opportunity to compete in a best vs. best environment. The National Selection Game is a must-attend at ECNL events, and provides the athletes with an unrivaled playing experience.”

At the U16/17 level, each team in the National Selection Game will field 18 players, while at the U18/19 level rosters will feature 15 athletes each. Players were selected for the games by ECNL Player Identification staff through a combination of scouting and recommendations based on performances over the past several months. These athletes will not compete for their clubs on this day in order to properly rest and prepare for the National Selection Game. 

Introduced to ECNL Girls in 2019, previous National Selection Games have reached attendances of more than 1,500, including more than 300 collegiate scouts. Both National Selection Games will be uploaded to YouTube in full following the conclusion of the matches.
