    Not to mention that I have seen players come from the Santa Barbara area to play for them too.

    If you are in CIF southern section high school player you cannot play a sport (i.e. soccer, basketball) and play in an outside completive event with umpire, refs etc. during that season while it is in progress. So just by that standard you cannot play both at the same time. US Soccer has said they will allow players to play HS as the first year transitions but that they will evaluate after that. So you may be able to be rostered but no competitive games. I hope thats not confusing

    I believe that's why US Soccer said track and cross country is cool but not soccer at the same time.

    One more thing I am not sure has been discussed here, there might be a better chance to make an Academy team going in as the older age group, that works out for my daughter in waiting a year to see how it plays out.

    Yes, I know. And, most of the elite players from around there already play for Eagles...so, where else will they find talented players to round out their DA team?

    I also knew a few girls who drove in from the SLO area, but they were typically discovery players.

    Makes sense. I like that you have a plan. Almost any plan is better than no plan.

    just trying to help. you don't know what you don't know. It is a rule for both CIF and DA so it shouldn't be confusing. I don't know if DA plays matches during HS soccer season or not. If they do then the player has to make a choice

    Also, I'm starting to think it's kind of a "read between the lines" situation where you're allowed to but should you sort of thing. Especially knowing that they will "review" the subject after this season, and it was mainly done for the seniors in HS. Anyone else feel the same way?

    I agree with your thoughts here. Especially given the "upstart" transition to the new league GDA. I wonder if US Soccer will ever firm up the girls rules? Seems like the girls side of soccer has a lot of gray area or give and take? More of a question for me at this point. Maybe boys side is the same I just dont know.

    I was thinking the same thing! The way I saw it was -
    It seems like all US Soccer is trying to pull in the players. It started off as "We're going to start the GDA" which would be like the BDA, and in the same fashion that the ECNL is starting the BECNL, which is in the SAME format and the Girls ECNL. But then US Soccer decided to allow DP's or whatever they are called. Kind of like a Discovery Player, no? THEN they said, "But you know what, you girls can play HS Soccer this year, too." Then the "DA2" came out and I stopped paying real close attention because ECNL teams has EGSL as its second team and I really don't care for that kind of nonsense in the first place. ALL just to get players in the league. Maybe that was the plan. Allow leeway and all that good stuff to bring people in, THEN get serious.
    Maybe they settle things down in the year or two to come. Emphasis on maybe.

    The Girls DA Developmental Player and high school rules have not changed since they came out with the DA, the only significant change has been the addition of a new age group. The application laid it out pretty clearly as well. Too many people follow the discussion on these forums as if they are a useful source for facts, instead of reading the FAQ's and linked rules for information.

    Some DA clubs are saying different creative things to get players confortabl with joining the DA or their DPL teams but, to US Soccer's credit, their position, while a bit arrogant, has been pretty consistent.

    You're right. However, having done my own research previously, I think I mixed up what I learned about GDA with what I read on this website. In the end, I simply meant to point out the similarities b/t ECNL and GDA and how the beginning of this year and next year will probably be much more consistent and hypothesis that some of the rules with GDA were specifically made with the intent to make the league seem much more of an actual opportunity to players as they start their inaugural 2017-2018 season.

    Eagles fired Scott M. Rumor is he will be coaching Slammers ECNL.

    When the age changed...Eagles u13 (02/03) team lost only two '03 girls to '03 RSC ECNL, however, one player eventually left for Slammers '03 ECNL. That same Eagles u13 (02/03) team also lost four '02 players to '02 RSC ECNL because Scott Murray did not roster any of them for his Eagles 02 ECNL teams. RSC '03 ECNL was much stronger than Eagles '03s but Eagles '02s ECNL was much stronger than RSC '02 ECNL (Eagles 4th place ECNL standings vs RSC 8th place ECNL standings).

    There were also many more Eagles '02 ECNL players who made Eagles 01/02 DA team vs RSC ECNL 02's where only two players made the 01/02 DA.

    That's the challenge with the forum - sometimes posts sound like they are all accurate with the inside scoop and maybe InTheKnow isn't 100% in the know.
