    If the Girls D.A. board is to be believed then D.A. will not expand to U13(2006) next season for the Southwest division. I know several clubs were preparing as if D.A. was a sure thing. Anyone heard of the clubs' contingency plans?

    We haven't heard anything. Seems like players will either try to play up in DA, play up in DPL, play on current teams or move to new teams. Or at least that's what Captain Obvious told me.

    If there is no DA, then I would think the contingency plan would be to play Flight 1 or Gold. Am I missing something?

    There is DA but it will be a split age group ‘05/06. The contingency plan is find or stay with the right coach and environment for your DD to keep developing and go with it.

    Have you heard formally that it's a split age group, and if so, do you know what the relative percentages are between the 2 age groups? Is this split mandated or different club by club? If not mandated, what have been relative percentages of older age vs. younger age kids at DA clubs in other split age groups? Has your club communicated an expectation for how many 06s will make the DA team?

    Outside of what has been stated on the forum, I’ve spoke with someone from the Club that was in on the latest meeting/Call/webinar. This is not a Club specific thing it is a GDA thing (except in the Frontier Division).

    No further details provided. Sorry

    The 03 girls from the Frontier division will now get an extra year of training with great coaches, four days a week, with managed games and tournaments, games against highly competitive teams and an extra all important year to be scouted by college coaches during training sessions and competitive games. DA draws the most D1 college scouts compared to ECNL this year. Phoenix had a lot of D2, D3 scouts if that is where your DD hopes to play, then ECNL is a good option for you.

    Will ECNL have ‘06 next season? Doesn’t matter for my ‘06 as there isn’t and ECNL club Within any reasonable driving distance.

    This year for the 04 DA teams in SoCal it looks like there’s between zero and three 05s rostered per club, so short of a percentage mandate that gives you an idea of the odds for 06s playing DA in the coming season.

    Heard Galaxy was getting ECNL, but that was from a Blues parent. :D

    With many ‘06’s having played 9v9 last year, I would tend to agree with you.

    The interesting part to watch will be how parents ego plays into this, will clubs curtail to parents that "must" have their kid on the 05/06 DA team or risk losing that player to another club that will let them play on that team?

    Locally Legends has informally told select parents that they'll possibly have a handful or less of 06s playing in the dual band DA group next season.

    My DD passed on a few offers and we're sticking with "the right coach" approach. Still very early in the game to go all in with what someone else is selling you as the "be all, end all".

    I dunno. Do you think that If they meant it to be only 1 or 2 06s, they would've specifically mandated a dual age band 05/06 group?
