    Ecnl in Texas? I thought it was in Seattle . @Lambchop no need to disagree, coaches will be at both facilities. I know a few who have said as much.

    I was under the impression that Texas had secured the championship series of ECNL. Now I realize that may be for the other US Youth Soccer or whatever league. I'm not really caring since I don't have to go or send my kids, but accurate information is great to give. Anyone know for sure where ECNL is finishing up this year? Seattle sounds a heck of a lot better than Chicago in July. Not as good as Carlsbad though. Yeah baby. Lol.

    SAN DIEGO (July 28, 2017) - As part of its ongoing mission to impact everyday club environments to develop world class players, the U.S. Soccer Development Academy announced a multi-year agreement with the City of San Diego to host its signature end-of-season event, the Development Academy Summer Showcase and Playoffs, beginning June 18 - July 1, 2018.

    Those dates are for boys and girls and it doesn't give a schedule for who plays when yet.

    Interesting - the agreement as announced is with the City of San Diego, but the games are to be played in Oceanside.

    Frisco, TX is a bit warm, about 90-95 on average but that's very manageable IMHO.

    It was totally manageable when we were there since they had big tubs of ice water for all the players that were having heat stroke to sit in. No worries.

    Looks like ECNL is winning this tug of war. With the Michigan Hawks pulling out and possibly PDA and Eclipse Select, how long will it take the SoCal teams to follow suit? Get rid of GDA and you are back to having all of the talent concentrated on a few teams. Seems like the SoCal Blues saw this coming. Leaving their best players on their older ECNL teams.

    I hate to say I told you so (no I don't) but with how US Soccer and USSF handle things it isn't a surprise that their are some unhappy customers.

    Agree DA has screwed this up which honestly you have to expect to some degree with it being new. It doesn't however seem like they are fixing any of the issues that they have, whether that is allowing girls to play high school, adding more show cases, letting teams play out side competition etc. So many things they got wrong and are not willing to make changes/listen to the consumer.

    Those are the same. The USSF is US Soccer and vice versa.
