About The ECNL The ECNL is an independent, non-profit, member-based 501(c)(3) organization, with an independent governance and leadership structure. The ECNL Board of Directors and staff solely governs all programs and platforms. The ECNL is sanctioned by US Club Soccer. Boise Thorns are Idaho's first AND only ECNL member program in the State of Idaho, competing in the Northwest Conference with member clubs from CalNorth, WA, OR, UT & CO. National Showcase and Playoffs expose our program and athletes to the other national conferences and levels of play. One more reason, why Boise Thorns girls have a college placement rate of 94% annually of graduating class student-athletes for the past 34 years and MORE!
MISSION: To “Raise the Game” by elevating standards and experience in all aspects of female youth soccer.
