Marin FC, along with the other top handful of elite clubs of the Northern California region, compete regionally and nationally in the Elite Clubs National League. Beyond league play, the ECNL offers Marin FC national events and showcases highlighting our talent to college, professional and US Soccer National Team coaches. Unlike general showcases, Marin FC is guaranteed (indeed required) to attend the ECNL National Events. This ensures first class competition attracting the best coaches. There simply is no deeper nor better platform for teams and players to first and foremost develop their talents and skills regardless of short-term win-loss results, and secondly to showcase their development.

Marin FC Player Matriculation

2022 marks another great year for the girls of Marin FC as nine student-athletes earn the opportunity to play at the collegiate level.  Below you will find the complete list of all the girls from Marin FC that have gone on to play in college since 2015, which includes players that have played for Youth National Teams, professional teams, the WPSL, NCAA D1, NCAA D2, and NCAA D3 level, with many earning All-Conference honors and a handful winning National Championships!
Another 100+ players joined the college ranks prior to 2015, with a couple notables being the McFarlane sisters, Kelly and Darcy, both of whom played for North Carolina, then went on to play professionally.  Kelly played for the Houston Dash, while Darcy plied her trade overseas in Scotland for famed club Celtic.
