Player Development Program

Our number one goal with training is to create the best possible training habits. Training sessions will be designed so that players will get out of training whatever they put into it.

Session TWO (Technical & Physical Focus)

  • Technical work with a ball (individual and small groups)

Competitive Game Days with our Reserve teams

Throughout the season the ECNL teams and Reserve teams will have selected games days. This will give the ECNL staff further opportunities to evaluate those players that have desires to play in the ECNL program. These dates will be set as soon as we receive the final game schedules.

Discovery Players: As Crossfire United is only one selected to be a part of the ECNL, we understand that players from outside the Portland Area may want to be part of our program. Players traveling from greater distances for Crossfire United practices will be given considerations on a case by case basis by the ECNL Director/Head Coach. (i.e., - the number of practices attended per week).
