From our Club Director Mauricio Ingrassia:

“Beach Futbol Club is thrilled to be including our girls program in this new chapter for our club. We have spent the better part of the last decade building our club to national prominence. In roughly the same amount of time, the ECNL has risen to become the highest level of competition and player development in the United States. We are looking forward to the competition and to becoming great partners for the league in its mission. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to be all-in with the ECNL.
