Thorns teams are not good and getting blown out like cu and Fcp a year ago. Forwards are scoring maybe 1-5 goals all year with getting maybe 20 opportunities.

It does not matter what the competition is, players are being under developed.

All you are developing is survival and not even touching excelling or any of the other 10 categories.
This doesnít include the kids who do not play which thorns feel like itís a good thing to take kids and not play them and wonder why they donít develop.

Itís literally a sideshow

This is important I agree. While none of us like to lose itís probably a good thing to learn.

Donít justify your poor choice in a league with a lie that doesnít even come close to truth.

Crossfire Washington Timbers gps Eastside all have teams that are better than the da.

Itís not even close to competitive at some ages.

Oregon will always be fodder to the nationís best DA squads, even with our pro NWSL DA fielding subsidized & highly selective teams. This is no surprise, two local clubs tried their luck against a watered down version (US Club ECNL) a couple of years ago prior to the DA formation. To nobodyís surprise they struggled even more than the NWSL DA does present day.

In the end, Oregon girls have no place in the lofty heights of a National DA.

But, the USYS and US Club associations do offer local level club competition for our kids, USYS isnít as spendy as the travel US Club league, but both associations they take care of the lower level tiers of local club competition after the ĎDAí.

Now that high school soccer is over, I see the ECNL coaches are out recruiting again...

Getting 6 wins in 36 games is pretty good really.

My guess is because of the ban on high school and also a few other things. We will see how it pans out over time.
