With the staggered starts of the Elite Clubs National League teams, it made it difficult to release a top five until after play was well under way for a few divisions. Now that nearly everyone is competing, it's time to examine the top teams in each age group.
It should be noted, these rankings are not predictive, but rather reactive to the results. In other words, the higher ranked team has accomplished something on the field to earn that position for now. As such, we expect quite a bit of turnover in the rankings throughout the rest of the ECNL season.
Eclipse Select has turned in a stunning regular-season performance to earn the current No. 1 ranking over defending champion CASL Chelsea. It is very possible these two will remain in those positions heading into the ECNL playoffs this summer.
