    Does anyone have any insight / info on the age groups for GDA 2018/2019 season? Are they retaining the (U13?), U14, U15, U16/17 and U18/19 formatting? I had heard US Soccer was considering splitting the U16/17 into two distinct age groupings...true? False? #curious

    Are they really using a basic Google Docs form to accept applications?
    I guess the technology works fine, but it seems pretty lame that this is what our federation uses to accept applications.
    I am considering filling one out and entering "US Soccer Sucks. What does the development academy develop?" into every free form box.

    That is for the Boys DA, the girls are doing something different apparently

    "The Girls’ Development Academy is currently in the first year of the program. Academy Leadership is in the stage of observation and analysis about any potential age groups for expansion, e.g. U-13, U-16 single age, etc. If the Academy were to expand, all clubs that complete this application would also be considered for additional potential age groups and would receive communication prior to confirming participation. Note: Existing Academy Clubs do not need to apply for any potential expansion, they will automatically be considered for any additional age group expansion"

    Thanks for the age group update. Appreciated! How long does it take US Soccer to get a decision back to the applying club? #curious

    Over the last few weeks I have looked at game cards for the DA. It lists number of minutes played by players and who scored. It would be nice to know who assisted on the goals and why some players did not play. Where they on IR?
    Actually I think he is trying to figure out how to fire himself but he keeps running into to much red tape. Who knew?

    The next best thing is coming after Gulati is canned. The DA was in existence for 10 years and the results are in. It did not work.

    Do they still have U17 residency in Bradenton FL? Because if they do....that didn't work either.
