Some good ideas for sure, but highly unlikely that they will implement any of these proposed changes.

High school soccer is mostly geared towards school pride and camaraderie that sort of thing. Rather soccer should be thought of in terms of a serious pursuit where you sacrifice to get better. The gda will continue to lose many of the best players to high school sports.

The cost is probably not going down. Travel is expensive.

Away games against lower quality teams will always exist. In every game, one of the teams will be lower quality. Just the way things work.

Clubs in general do not benefit by encouraging top players to leave their teams. Also most think they can train the players better.

The ideas are sound but circumstances are at work against them.

I think you are on to something there. Soccer should not be thought of in terms of a serious pursuit. Life > soccer.
