It's hardly even two months long.

I have been to many ECNL and DA games. It is not all that pretty either and neither is the game at most colleges.

If you can't learn to protect yourself in HS then how do you learn to protect yourself in college where the players will be bigger, stronger, and faster.

The only time club soccer looks great is when you are playing against a slower and less skilled team who doesn't want to play physical

It's close to four grand a year now. That isn't cheap.

Learning to be physical on ball and play and different speeds was a good thing. To each their own.

To each their own. Pros and cons to each league. One size doesnít fit all so pick the best fit and enjoy. Let others enjoy their choices and rooting for Oregon girls in all three leagues. Quit whining and be happy if you can find any team where your dd is happy.

To each their own.
The best players know HS is not the platform for them, HS glory days are cherished once in lifetime moments for HS level female players.

If the shoe fits...

It could be worse, play for CU or FC fly across the country have no fans and worst of all no opponent to play due to weather.

Great point.
