This thread has mostly been about the girls DA program. For boys you need to get your kid on an affiliate club team thatís where most of their recruiting is done from

I see 3 clubs playing 3 games as intended. Just no 18/19 games.

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
