CT Rush Select Joins ECNL Regional League for 2023/24 Season

NORTH BRANFORD, Connecticut, Tuesday, April 4, 2023: Northeast Rush is delighted to announce that CT Rush Select will join the ECNL Regional League for the 2023/24 season. Teams at the U13, U14, U15, U16, U17, and U19 age groups will compete in the Northeast League.

Founded in 2009, the ECNL challenged the status quo of youth soccer, with a vision to be better. Today it represents the epitome of excellence in youth soccer as the league and its clubs, players, coaches, and everyone involved seeks to constantly “Raise the Game” for the future.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our CT Rush Select players. It enables us to compete in one of the nation’s best soccer leagues,” said Greg Cumpstone, Director of Coaching for CT Rush Select. “We are an ambitious club, and we want to place our players in the best environment possible to develop and progress as soccer players.”

We feel strongly that this advancement into the ECNL Regional League Northeast is the right step,” continued Cumpstone. “In recent years, our players and teams have shown their ability to compete at the highest level, and I am excited to see them continue to prove themselves against some of the best in the business. We have been pushing for the move into the ECNL, and we feel that being invited to join is a recognition of the hard work and quality of our players and coaching staff.”

CT Rush Select is the first Northeast Rush region to receive an invitation to the ECNL organization. The ECNL Regional League is a national-level platform that will present opportunities for our players to compete in the Northeast League, compete in renowned tournaments, and increase college recruitment exposure.

“We are excited to be invited to compete in the ECNL Regional League, as it is widely recognized as the elite level competition nationally,” said Craig Thomas, Northeast Rush CEO. “CT Rush Select has set the competitive standard for our club and thoroughly deserves the opportunity to compete in the Regional League.”

CT Rush Select operates teams out of North Branford, CT, and will be holding tryouts for the 2023/24 season later this month. If you are interested in earning your spot and being a part of the club’s inaugural season in the ECNL, register here:
