    From what I heard from various sources it's not going to happen.

    Not happening. I'd like to hear from parents who were promised a fake league. Anyone asking for their deposit back?

    I am one of those parents!! My DD is on the B team at a DA club, and instead of calling it the Reserve team, the club told me it was going to be the DA II team. Most of the other clubs in our league were also adding the moniker DA II to their B teams. It was sold as the DA II league. As we all know, that's not happening. Now my kid has to play against the lame Reserve teams in the Reserve league. The DA II would have been so much better. I'm distraught. I feel so taken! Do you think they would really give me my deposit back?

    You say they will be playing against reserve teams in a reserve league? What league?

    No matter the moniker, it's a league full of b teams.

    Honestly I think the majority of the da b teams and ecnl teams would be better served playing in scdsl/csl/crl. I am not so sure many would even qualify for crl.

    I may be wrong here, but I think the DA clubs have changed the names of the DA teams to the following:
    A team - Academy Team
    B Team - Academy Reserve

    Sounds like DA II (or DA 2) has been nuked.

    I get that. But, against who? Playing where? Sanctioned by? I would imagine ECNL would still be a better option. Why would anyone stick around a club for something that was thrown against the wall hopping it would stick?

    I think an educated guess would be SCDSL. That is where all of these GDA clubs already have other teams playing (besides LA Premier and LAGSD).

    Call it DAII, call it "Reserve", it is still a ploy to keep b team parents happy. I made the same comment about slammers calling their egsl team, "ecnl reserve".

    I don't think the DA clubs have been answering those questions, because there are no answers yet. It sounds like a mess to me. I agree, I would not stick around.

    For those who attended DA tryouts for the youngers and were offered a spot, did they tell you which team your daughter made? Did you have to put down a deposit and what does the refund clause say? And when do you start training? And do you know who's on the roster for next season?

    Albion, LAGSD & LAPFC are CSL. If this is the case, and I agree the educated guess is that it is, then that's fine. IMO, that's how it should be. Then we are only talking about a meaningless team label. I just think people deserve honest answers from the clubs pushing it. Then if there are girls that don't make DA that wish to move on to another club in the hopes of making their DA team, can do so. Like I said, for 02 and older, I think ECNL might still be better than DAII.

    With 18+ girls on the DA team, I really don't think a DP from their B team is really going to see play time.
