What is the Competitive Level II Program?

The Competitive Level II program is a highly competitive soccer program at Mustang with attention paid to the tactical, physical, and mental development of our players. As with the Competitive Level I - ECNL program, our philosophy aims to develop more creative and technically proficient players and prepare them for soccer at the high school and college-level whenever possible. 

 

Who typically plays in this program?

For the 22/23 season, the players in the U8-U19 age groups, encompassing 2015-2004 birth years, are eligible for this level. They are the very best soccer players in the region who can expect to compete in the Competitive Level I - ECNL program during their U13 year. These younger teams are considered "Pre-ECNL." Across all ages, this program also includes some of the strongest players in the region who form the Elite I and Elite II teams, which are the second and third best teams at Mustang. These teams will compete at the highest levels of competition around the region.

 

Who coaches these teams?

The Mustang coaching staff consists of many former professional and college coaches who also have varying licenses from USSF and NSCAA. Mustang provides ongoing education and opportunities for our coaches to upgrade their licenses over time.

 

How are these teams formed?

These teams are formed through a selection of players based on scheduled tryouts and monitored play during both practices and games. For tryout information and schedule, please click HERE.
