    Has anyone heard anything about girls DPL/ DAII or whatever they are calling it this week? We haven't seen a schedule for the fall and haven't seen any "DPL" teams come up in any showcases or tournaments all summer.

    I heard that DA II will be playing in their own league and schedule will depend on DA schedule. For example if DA playing on Sat, DA II will be playing on Sun. We just have to wait and see.

    Yes, we will have to wait for the schedule.

    Here is a suggestion I would like to see with the DA Reserve teams.......decide on a uniform naming protocol for these teams. I have seen the DA "B" team go by, "DA Reserve", "DA II" or "DA DPL". It cannot be that difficult.

    It is DPL. DA did not want them using their name.

    More info will have to wait. There will be more movement on the DA teams, which you will see happen right after Surf Cup. Thereafter, some DA players will be bumped to the DPL team and it will be time to get the popcorn out and enjoy the show.

    Will they really bump girls that have been told they are DA and some fully funded, to the DPL team?

    Also when will they tell girls that are on a DPL team if they will be DP Players or was that a big hoax too?

    Yes why would they not bump kids on DA if a better player comes along? However, they can only do that before rosters are due and then once mid-season. I doubt they would bump fully funded kids because they would not scholarship them if they were bubble players.

    DP players are a joke. Think about it. Subs are limited in the game so there are going to be plenty of bench warmers on DA teams. Why would they then add another bench warmer unless they are smart enough to see that the natives are getting restless and do it to appease some parents. Then again, DP players are limited to something like 6 games a year and not during the playoffs.

    If you think the "D" in DA and DPL stands for development you have serious denial issues.

    You missing very important part - DP players can play somewhere else while being DP. They can play DPL, Flight 1, HS or whatever else.

    DP's are limited use in DA, 0-3 per team and fewer as the ages go up, historically.

    Between the Oct- April windows DP's can be added with the expectation they have been regularly training with the DA team and are ready to play.

    Once you start with DA even as a DP after the start of HS you can't go back and forth and play until the HS is over if you're trying to do both & a club is accommodating

    I think it all depends on how the club is treating their bubble players. Did they roster a full 23 players with their bubble players on the DA team or do they have a roster of 19-21 and put the bubble players on their second team for more playing time? If the DA has a full roster of 23 I agree that chances are slim to none that a DP gets any time at the DA level. If the roster is 19 or 20 and there are any injuries I believe it is very likely DP players will be used with the chance of being moved full time into the DA.

    Some DA teams only have at most 15 players. This weekend there were multiple 03 DA teams with 15 or less players. I still don't see how they are going to get to 20-23 players, when there isn't enough kids to fill all the spots at each level.

    20-23???? Why 20-23? The three teams I know coaches personally capped their roster at 18 and another has 23 because they are all about money and girls wanted on team.

    All these new DA teams with 30+ games in the 4 age groups each with upfront scheduling is making field assisgments tougher to come by.

    Hopefully things get sorted and they don't pull a Cal South and put most games out at Norco, San Bernardino, Galloway, etc.

    Heard the schedule should be out any day. Suppose to be home and away games lining up with what teams the DA is playing as much as possible.

    Now that the OC Great Park is opening up more fields this weekend, does anyone know if they will host more league games (ECNL, DA, SCDSL, etc.)? This location is so much better than San Bernardino, Silverlakes or Gallway Downs.

    Anything? We heard we would get a schedule by yesterday at the latest but still nothing. Doesn't the season start in a few weeks?? This is ridiculous!

    SCDSL doesn't have their schedules out yet either. Not sure about CSL but this is par for the course with SoCal leagues. It isn't just a DPL thing.

    Mad scramble to secure field permits, DA given priority and most are still working on completing those. CSL, DSL, and others are picking up most of the rest so don't be surprised if DPL goes CS and plays at Galaway, Norco, or the like.
