Unregistered I learned early on, the hard way, that every year you need to do a serious evaluation of each your player's situations well before tryout season. It's never a bad idea to look around and see what else is out there. Get in front of clubs before mass tryouts in case you need to bail. You may just find that all is well, or you might find a better situation without really knowing you wanted it. There's no telling if your team might blow up, club blows up, possibly the league blows up. The situation has only gotten worse with what has now become huge landscape changes every year.

USSF bamboozling them is also an option
For a club like NYCFC to only have 3 or 4 girls at tryouts last summer, parents should have seen the writing on the wall. Parents need to be a little more saavy too people. Take some ownership on yourself! A club will offer you anything they think people will pay for, but come on, look at those younger teams...some parents were more interested in having their kid wear the fancy uniform than have a great soccer experience. When your roster has 11 players with one goalie on the team, who is playing up, a week before practices are supposed to start, perhaps you should be questioning the validity of the teams

Can't entirely blame the club - USSF bears a good deal of the responsibility as well. They over promised, they created a league that's too big and have too many poor quality clubs in it. Adding Seacoast and Alby? Come on. With BDA clubs looking to split off from DA as well it's no wonder the club has said "why are we doing this?" Pro clubs don't want to be in the business of youth sports. The want to develop pro MALE players.

It's not about what the players want but what the club wants. They don't want to be in girls soccer.
