    Blues have not opted out. For some reason they are being kept out. Even after being announced that they were in.

    I understand the founding DPL’s Group argument. Isn’t this essentially Blues C team at this age? Maybe not.

    But at the same time if the DPL group wants to help to force ECNL out and make DPL the best league for their B teams, then I think they should include all DA clubs. But who am I to say....

    Where are the people that maintained that Blues were still in?

    If I were to make an assumption why they were kept out, it would be the farce Baker DA squad they threw together last year.

    Baker’s ECNL team was the A team.

    Then they brought Abner’s team in - another sign of allegiance to ECNL.

    They look very “thin” at the ‘04 age group.

    We all know websites are rarely up to date. I have friends on the team. They are in the dark. BH is reassuring them. Only time will tell.

    It's confusing... is there supposed to be a "formula" for who can be on the Pilot teams? From what I've heard, it seems like some clubs are keeping almost all current 03 DA players together on the pilot teams next year and some clubs are composing their Pilot teams from their existing DPL players. Obviously, the Blues girls have signed for the Pilot team. I don't have any affiliation with the club, but that would be a bummer for the girls if the Pilot wasn't happening. Wonder what changed?

    Quality over quantity?

    Blues as of Friday are not in DPL Pilot. Today is a new day.

    They (Blues) wrote to US Soccer to complain, the response from US Soccer DA was - (paraphrasing) we are only scheduling the DPL 03 Pilot League within the confines of the DA Season and for showcases. We do not govern or have any say in it.

    Is it safe to say that Blues Pilot team can play in showcases but not in the DPL League during season? If so, where does that leave Blues 03 Pilot Team? Playing SCDSL tier 1?

    Hopefully not. The 03 DA team moving to SCDSL flight #1 would create a heavy imbalance in that grouping. I would assume that team would be top 2 or 3 in DPL, and top 2 or 3 ECNL. In Champions flight 1., their only problem would be possibly Temecula Hawks. Other than that they would blow out the other teams.

    This isn’t their 03 DA team. The pilot would have been BH’s ECNL team from this past season, and if I recall, they were in last place. Not the juggernaut and certainly not TB’s team.

    Looks like Del Mar Sharks & Sereno were underneath Blues for standings and Blues made it to the post season for ecnl playoffs. Did all of the 03's on the Blues Da team make 02 da? If not, the Blues Pilot team may not be able to be competitive with the other Pilot Team's if their Team's roster majority current 03 da players? Or did all 03 current da players make their 02 da teams for next season?

    Southwest has the DPL - 03 Pilot
    Frontier has DA - 03 Pilot
    DA is in charge of schedules

    Maybe Blues should ask DA to be part of the DA - 03 Pilot and then have DA schedule them to play all of the DPL - 03 Pilot teams

    Good question. Blues 01/02 DA team had quite a few 02’s DA.

    Somewhat related... what does the “No outside competition” refer to with the DA structure? It’s listed in an addition to “No high School Soccer.” Does that mean no playing competitive volleyball or softball OR does it refer only to other competitive soccer?

    But this team was thrown together as a cover up. Doubtful that there is loyalty to those kids there. TB isnt going to lose his team over it and an all 03 Blues dA team would likely still be competitive in the 02-03 bracket.
