FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Sting Austin and RGV FC Youth Academy Join Forces in the new ECNL Regional League
Dallas, Texas - June 22, 2018 - The Sting Soccer Organization and RGV FC Toros Youth Academy are pleased to announce a partnership between the organizations that provides the RGV FC teams in the 05, 04, 03, 02, 01/00 age groups the opportunity to compete as Sting Austin teams in the newly formed ECNL Regional League. The league will be comprised of the historical leaders of female player development in Texas and Oklahoma and will closely follow and embrace the core values of its seven members, forming an unrivaled cooperative platform of destination clubs committed to the advancement of elite female players.
Founding members of the new platform include each ECNL ‘All In’ club in the nationally regarded Texas ECNL Conference: Albion Hurricanes, Challenge Soccer Club, Classics Elite, D’Feeters Soccer Club, Sting-Dallas Soccer Club, Sting-Austin, and TSC Hurricanes. The league will provide a unique and clear development path towards collegiate, professional and international play. RGV FC Youth Academy Girls’ teams will have the opportunity to pursue this high level elite platform by joining forces with Sting Austin and representing Sting Austin in the ECNL Regional League. The highest level RGV FC Youth Academy players will also have the potential to compete nationally in the ECNL by having access to discovery player roster spots on Sting Austin ECNL teams and Sting Dallas ECNL teams.
The partnership creates the option for RGV FC Youth Academy teams to train and compete under the RGV FC umbrella, training with their highly experienced coaching staff and continuing to develop locally, while being able to play games as Sting Austin teams within the ECNL Regional League to further enhance development. RGV FC Staff will take the lead in coaching the teams as Sting Austin within league play and will be supported by the Sting Austin ECNL staff in a collaborative effort that will support the partnership and the elite development of RGV FC players.
The Sting Soccer Organization is pleased that the partnership has come to fruition as it represents how collaboration between two separate entities can provide an immense opportunity for players that would not have otherwise had access to participate in this high level competitive league platform. With the quality and talent of the RGV FC teams in each age group, and a strong relationship between the two clubs, the future is bright for the RGV FC teams competing as Sting Austin within the ECNL Regional League.
