I think Janet Jackson says it best:
Also sort of like in some businesses. There are plenty of people doing a whole lot of nothing just trying to look busy for the CEO. As long as they look like they are doing something and are in the top 4 or 5 in the world Sunil will let them do what they want.
Just look at who was hired to take on the u20's. What is her connection to the US soccer technical director? The answer might surprise you. To those of us watching it is no surprise.
So it wouldn't/doesn't benefit US Soccer to get kids into college, just on a National Team?
IMHO, DPL would not exist if ECNL would be more inclusive and yet DPL is doing the exact thing they loathe ECNL for doing - exclusivity. Also, EAGLES and RSC declined ECNL boys invite and were dropped from ECNL they did not leave on their own. DPL has nothing to do with further developing youth soccer players and everything to do with money and keeping players in their club. DPL is a division in the Presidio league - nothing's been finalized and DOCS are hyping, hyping and hyping it without finalizing playoffs, exposure or showcases attached sans Vegas College Showcase and SIlverlakes. An open market is better than an elite closed market. Players who don't make DA or want to continue playing high school, playing in SCDSL Flight 1 Champions division would be no less competitive than creating an exclusive bracket called the DPL actually it's called the Academy Development League.
Agreed!!! That or more geographically diverse.
Albion completed tryouts for 01/02, anyone care to share?
Where? Vegas or SD or wherever else Albion is situated?
No Vegas tryouts. Doesn't happen here until after Memorial Day @GoWest .
Thanks for the clarification.
For our older girls...ECNL, DA, AYSO. who cares....once the recruitment process is over, I just want my girls to play the game they love, improve their skills for college, and stay healthy!!!!
Brilliant and succinct!!
Does anyone know for sure if DA II will be enforcing the same strict substitution rules as DA?
No as DAII is not sanctioned or really even recognized by the USSDA governing body. I foresee these teams playing Flight I or Gold in their clubs respective leagues.
The only population numbers that count are the number of children between the ages of 7-17. That would provide a more accurate assessment of the number of potential players. Then you need to look at how many play soccer as opposed to other sports or no sport. That would give more accurate numbers to compare.
