    So, we all know there is direct conflict with DA in NC on the same weekend. Is there a problem, ECNL? Usually you are pretty proactive. Where is the college coach List??? These kids need time to contact their prospective coaches. We are 2 weeks away.

    If you click on schedule link, there will be a tab that says colleges. Click that and the coaches are listed there.

    And not all college coaches register here either. I saw several coaches not listed at the events.

    Interestingly, almost twice as many D1 schools are signed up for the DA showcase than have signed up for the ECNL showcase. But more D2 and D3 schools are signed up for the ECNL showcase than the DA one.
    I guess that is probably a sign of where things are headed.

    I wish these wankers would get their s#$t together and work things out. The tug o war does not help any of our kids or their potential college coaches out.

    It's not a sign. The entire GDA will be attending the April Showcase or risk getting the boot. The ECNL event seems to be a bit more regional in nature. My 2 cents... after all ...all the best girls arent in GDA especially for 02s and above.

    It is a sign - a sign that has already passed. D1 coaches fully understand what ECNL is and maybe D1 assistant coaches will go for a specific kid.

    I don’t care who shows up assistant or head coach. As long as the representative from the one of five schools that my DD is interested in shows up, we are good. You’re right they fully understand that the soccer world is extremely diluted . There is great talent in both leagues. That’s not changing as the primary recruiting year will be riding benches across the country in GDA next season, and that’s pretty unfortunate .

    I did not say anything about dilution - I said "they fully understand what ECNL is" now compared to last year. Yes, there is some great talent in ECNL. The primary recruiting year will not be sitting on the bench next year in GDA. All this shows is how naive you are to the split age group in GDA and how many primary recruiting year players are on those teams and play. ECNL Spring Showcase is not regional either - all U15-U17 SW ECNL teams attend each year. This is actually the showcase that the ECNL coaches put the most emphasis on for the girls each year. My DD played in this showcase the last 2 years and I can tell you the college list is quite dismal compared to what it was the past few years. Maybe the coaches are just not registering for the event...

    I would imagine the list will grow in the next week or so. In addition, you are correct. There will be a fair amount that don't register.

    Why does that surprise you? DA is the top league now and ECNL is the second tier league especially in California. The majority of the top players moved from ECNL to DA. I am sure that there will still be ECNL players on D1 rosters. I would think that most ECNL players will end up at D2, D3 and NAIA colleges. The D2, D3 and NAIA colleges still provide a quality education and have good soccer programs.

    @Surfref , I think that statement is definitely debatable. Perhaps there are a larger portion of top kids playing in DA, but I would say that's probably only true in SoCal as you elude to. Other regions/states it's a mixed bag. At least for the rest of Spring, D1 college coaches and the like will be scouting both leagues actively until things shake out further. It is in their best interest to do so. Next Fall, you may be correct. We'll just have to see.

    Keywords in your post SW ECNL. You will have the ENTIRE GDA at the event in North Carolina, and compared to SOME ECNL teams. My point was that clubs get to pick and choose which showcases they want to attend. Those of us in the SW typically choose Phoenix . The vast majority of teams participating in the upcoming Phoenix Showcase are West of the Mississippi thus making it more of a regional thing. However, that option is not available for GDA, you play where they tell you to show up. As for the college coaches perhaps they aren't registering because they are trying to divide and conquer this soccer landscape...who knows. I don't care as long as they show up. The age relative effect will take hold next season, and once again you will see girls shift. Whether it's the A.R.E or available space on teams, girls will have to find somewhere to play. This shows how naive YOU are regarding the dual age bands.

    All of SW ECNL will be at Phoenix (9 of 48 U16 teams) and this is a National event. The college list looks like dog poop compared to last year and there is a reason for that. Yeah all the coaches just decided to register for GDA and skip the ECNL signup but they will be there. You said 2003 girls next year will be riding the bench in GDA - you are naive and this is not true at all when you combine 16 and 17 year olds. Yes, the entire GDA goes to one event as it is truly a National event that coaches can attend and see any girl in GDA - what a concept. Your plethora of GDA comments sprinkled through your posts (mostly uneducated) elude that your kid did not make GDA and you are sour.

    I think it is wrong to chalk it up to sour grapes when someone does not agree with you on a topic. My dd would be thrilled to accomplish just 1/4 of what Shale's dd has at her young age.
