NATIONAL SHOWCASE LEAGUE
Select Clubs National Showcase League (SCNSL) is a newly formed platform that focuses solely on player development through the highest level of competition and maximum exposure for players to college coaches. The SCNSL operates with all competition planning and participation being conducted by member clubs and not by a Soccer Association. Our founding clubs met for the SCNSL’s first AGM in December 2020.
The landscape of youth soccer competition platforms has been going through major changes in recent years. These fluctuations and most recent events have dictated, more than ever, the need for youth soccer club leaders being at the center of decision-making process to optimally serve their players. The SCNSL strongly believes in empowering players through empowering member clubs. The SCNSL will offer regional and national competition for boys and girls teams ages U13 to U19.
The main objectives of SCNSL are to provide:
- Highest Level of Competition
By selecting clubs with established pedigree and highest quality of player development history
- Maximum Exposure to College Coaches
Conducting regional and national league games during nation’s leading showcase events and member club tournaments
- Limited Travel and Cost
By conducting all league games during designated member club tournaments, in lieu of, traveling every other weekend and playing games at remote and isolated fields
- Player Recognition and Promotion
SCNSL will be provide one of the best player profile platforms and a dedicated program assisting players with college recruiting
THE INAUGURAL SEASON (2021-22)
The SCNSL conducted its first Boys and Girls showcase at the Chicago International Showcase in July 2021, with numerous first-year SCNSL clubs from the Pacific to the Atlantic participating in friendly competition. The event proved to be an excellent opportunity for teams from different parts of the USA to interact and compete with one another.
On August 13-15, 2021 the SCNSL hosted its first official Regional Showcase, when the Southwest Regional Showcase took place in Salt Lake City Utah. More than a dozen additional Boys and Girls Regional Showcases (most conducted by the SCNSL’s member clubs) will take place from August 2021 through June 2022.
In addition, the SCNSL National Showcase will be held on consecutive weekends in March, alongside the prestigious Players Showcase, one of the longest running youth soccer showcases in the USA. The Boys SCNSL National Showcase will take place on March 11-13, 2022; with the Girls SCNSL National Showcase taking place on March 18-20, 2022. All SCNSL teams are eligible to take part in showcase format competition cross-region play.
The 2021-22 season will culminate with the SCNSL National Finals and Showcase on July 8-10, 2022 in suburban Chicago. The top teams from each of the age groups in our Regional Competition will advance to compete for the first Boys and Girls SCNSL National Titles. All other (and incoming) SCNSL teams are eligible to take part in the Chicago International Showcase event that will be held alongside the National Finals
