    DPL for league games only allows 1 game per day. Double fixture weekends are OK as long as there is at least 18 hours between kick off times.

    Anyone know why Pats cancelled all their DPL games?

    What you talking about Willis?
    I see some Oct 28th cancellations. But the rest of their games still appear on the schedule. Some with "TBD" for location.
    There are quite a few TBD games across the clubs in Spring.

    If a PT keeper plays in a DA game, they would not be eligible to play in any other game on the same day. For example, for PT players, they could play in a DA game on Saturday and then a DPL game on Sunday. For DA, they would not want that same keeper/player to then play in a DA game on Monday (3 consecutive games/days).

    DPL Rules allow for a loaned keeper to play in 2 games per day. There is a GK Amendment for this. Meaning if the GK is borrowed they can play for their DPL team and an older DPL team, or their CSL/SCDSL/Other and play a DPL game as a loaned player - 2 Games in a day. I would think it applies to a scenario where a DPL keeper is brought up to play a DA game (same age or older) and has a DPL game same day. That is what the rules read and how I interpret them. DPL is not DA as so many have mentioned, and not run by DA, so from a DA perspective the DP has played in one game. It seems like quite a gray area, and I would confirm with club administration. Is somebody really going to complain or attempt to flag a club from borrowing a keeper for a game due to a injury, etc.? Probably...but it would be a better game with a "real" keeper versus a field player subbing in.

    Nothing! And mediocre skill-level teams at best (not all but the majority!) Total waste of money for families and the players don't get anything different from training. RSC charges more for DPL season but some teams only practice 2x a week and no scrimmages or extra training days when teams have weeks off. DPL is crap and a money grab the the DA clubs bought into.

    I think it really depends on the club. At RSL or as they call themselves Utah Royals they train 3 days a week. The fees are less vs what they charged last yr when in ECNL. Roughly $800 less.

    The top DPL look pretty good. The bottom teams are weak.

    At least in my DDs age group the same holds true for the ECNL teams (top teams are fine and the bottom ones look weak). That division is not as strong as last year.

    Dilution is taking a toll.

    You hit the nail on the head, dilution is def taking its tool. Its too bad - the players lose in the end.
    RSC charged $2300 this season. Eagles Camarillo charged the same and if you aren't able to pay in full Eagles charges $2600.

    What about the travel costs? I know a team from So Cal that is flying into AZ this weekend for games. Kids are taking Friday off of school and not getting home until about 10pm on Sunday night. How many teams are they flying/driving past that would give them a similar level of competition?

    DPL is a bit different this year now that they have 24 league games. In the past they were only a fall league and teams traveled the tournament circuit in the Spring. Now they have league games at that time. There is only one trip to AZ for each team to play 2 league games. I venture to say that the overall cost and travel is likely less for DPL this year with this new structure and playing alot less tournaments.

    In terms of a travel team, one trip a year to AZ is not expensive. The rest of the So Cal teams are basically playing games in and around LA and SD.

    From a cost standpoint the AZ terms certainly pay more as they have multiple trips out to So Cal.
    DPL certainly has improved from what they offered last year. As you said, last year they had just a fall league. This year it is a full Fall and Spring setup.
    I am somewhat surprised del Sol also plays in the AZ state leagues to be honest. RSL decided to forgo state leagues for their DPL teams and focus on that league plus showcases for those teams.

    As an aside I am curious if US Soccer will create an 04 pilot DA like they did for the 03s this year. If they do, there will AGAIN be a lot of turnover here in AZ as teams and parents scramble around. Some kids who don't make a combined 04/03 team will look to ECNL. Some kids from other clubs will of course want to jump in. ETC.

    Does anybody know the rules on "C" team players guesting on their clubs DPL ("B") team, same age? Also assume this is the only game they play on a certain day. I can't find those rules anywhere and there's been some debate on if this is allowed or not. I know players can guest on academy games as my 04 daughter has several times (up to 6) so I would assume DPL would allow this.

    They can, they just can't play more than one game a day, I believe. Our team did this a couple of times due to injuries.

    Per DPL rules it is allowed. But once they do they are technically not allowed to return to play on SCDSL, Presidio or CSL teams. But both of those leagues are done now I believe.

    But to answer your original question it is allowed. Your DOC should have the rules to give to your coach.
