Inter CT FC are delighted to announce that, as part of our relationship with our friends at AC Connecticut, our boys will have the opportunity to participate in regional play in the ECNL Regional League starting this fall in the 23/24 season. This opportunity is provided to our players who aspire to and are selected to compete at the next level. It also compliments our teams competing in the National League North Atlantic and New England Conferences, a unique situation afforded to us due to our geographical location.
This is an exciting development for the club. The ECNL Regional League will serve both Inter CT FC and AC Connecticut as a USL Pre Academy League. For our players who have had a taste of what the USL has to offer, this will be a welcome addition to the services that Inter CT FC already provides. By adding the ECNL Regional league to our schedules many more of our players will now have the opportunity to get that same valued experience.
The ECNL Regional League North Atlantic will cater to our U13 - U19 boys teams. At the top of this ladder will remain the USL U20 Academy League and the USL2 Mens team.
See our latest "Beyond the Badge" for a USL Academy Open Cup edition.
As before, players who qualify to compete at the USL Pre Academy in this ECNL Regional league will do so at no added tuition cost.
As we continue to build our platforms for all our teams, we want to ensure that the club is best placed to serve all your soccer needs.
We also have very exciting news on the horizon for our girls. As we increase our presence in Regional soccer for girls teams in 2023/2024 we will be offering more regional league and tournament play.
Stay tuned for the girls updates and more club wide information about all the new developments at Inter CT FC.

The Inter CT Litchfield Hills U-12 team coached by Dwayne Pond and Rob Lesniewski competed in the Westport WIN tournament and won the championship game in the last two seconds of an intense match against Danbury.
With the score tied 1-1 with less than a minute left , Ella T. and Charlotte F. moved the ball up the field with a quick give and go and then played the ball to Lila C. who slotted the ball just inside of the near post with mere seconds left in the game. Lila also had the first goal of the game when she buried a deflection off of a direct kick from Harper P.
To get to the final the girls bested Madison 4-1, beat NJSA 8-0 , and Westport Blue 5-1. The championship game was a rematch of a 2-2 draw against Danbury earlier in the day.
The win comes off the back of Litchfield's U13 team also winning the EDP League Championship back in November at their first attempt.
The Litchfield branch has recently grown and now has a U10 boys team.
