Unregistered It is glorified scrimmage. Vastly overpriced. My kid did it one session. He liked it fine, but it is NOT worth the money.

If you live in NY and your kid can't make the NY ODP team because they looked the other way for some kid from CT, wouldn't that be wrong, even if the CT kid was better?
If your child is playing in one of those other leagues previously mentioned, the program is really not worth the money. It is good for the younger ages but the “consistency” of player argument doesn’t really hold if your child trains in a very competitive program.

Anyone else do this COE PDP? What did you see and think?
There was a cirriculum at the session my player did. Different focus each week I believe and then try to execute the lesson during the scrimmage.

Selfishly, I'm not opposed to it, bc we love the kids and my D has gotten to know them really well and the girls play amazing soccer together.
BUT, do I think it's fair to other kids who are playing in Nycsl whose potential "spots" are being occupied by kids outside the league? Not really
I'm totally aligned with your statements. My son who played on DA but left because he wants to play high school is part of the PDP program, select squad, etc has multiple friends that play for DA however are also part of the program. The way I look at it is I want my child to play in a environment which is very competitive so if a spot is taken from a NYCSL player then so be it. then that child wasn't developed enough to make the cut. HOWEVER: Once you reach an age where the iD2 program kick in that's when it becomes sticky I'm a year away from that so I'll cross the bridge next year.

Thinking about what someone said earlier, at $55 a kid=$1320 a session...
