    The way I see it, as long as the club is not in jeopardy of losing its DA status and they're doing all the right things as Striker pointed out, who gives a rats ass about the W-L record. They will all be at the exact same showcases and be seen by the same college coaches or national team scouts.

    I think you'll see as your DD gets older it's more about her and less about the team (of course, as long as she's on a team that gets to the showcases). If you're on a DA team, then it's all about your player.

    I know a few parents of players on Pateadores and they say many of the parents are not happy with the results but are beyond happy with the training. I know Pats had some trouble getting talent on the team as expected because parents have no idea what is important. I have seen a few of their games at U15 and U16/17 - a handful of the girls belong in flight 1. Heads down, blind passes, etc. I know the 3 coaches and they are really, really good coaches. I hear they run specific formations and the girls have to make game footage videos of where formations failed or players failed their position etc.

    Is there a DA club in jeopardy of losing their DA status?

    Isn't that the whole point of DA? Player development over wins & losses?

    Understood and agreed Striker --

    I wandered over here from NTX as I was looking for some inside info on Silverlakes Thanksgiving DA comp and came across this.

    We started up this year with U13 DA ... I believe all but 2 of the clubs in Frontier Division have U13 sides. This group is considered a 'Pilot' program and the teams aren't held to the same USSDA standards as U14+. Only train 3x per week, kids are able to participate in other sports, no scores/standings, etc.

    Yes, but they also get an extra hour of Keeper specific training on Wed either before or after Technical Training.

    I have to admit I like Beach FC style of play..they keep it simple with good soccer IQ from what I've seen at 04 and above.

    no U13 for DA, it was never confirmed before. Clubs just promoted it because they were pushing for it to happen.. US Youth Soccer has ruled not to run the U13 program

    Maybe the rankings will stop now that the rightful leader is Legends :)) and certain people can't promote their brand

    The DA will be combined 2005/2006. Majority will
    come from 2005's with only 2-3 2006. Most 2006 won't play academy until the year after with a sprinkle of 2007. So it's just 2006 that are capable
    of playing up.

    I will be surprised to see 2-3 2006 players playing up on a team in DA, I believe each age group will have a large enough talent pool to pull from. It is a lot for the 2006 girls to keep up with the DA practice schedule/etc. I guess there is always an exception to the rule.

    Yes that's correct and I verified that girls da starts at u14 for 18-19 and there is only 4 age group brackets

    People are reading too much into a PowerPoint that referenced u13/u14. For the Southwest there is only u14 the u13 is only for frontier and it's not combined or a composite age group.

    But the US Soccer PowerPoint says the first band is "05/06". I'm not sure how people can read too much into that, as it says what it says. If people are reading too much into it, what would be the appropriate interpretation?
