However, if us soccer truly created the league to develop better national team players, the league will fail. It is basically the ecnl forced to play during the high school months with less focus on college recruiting. Same players, same coaching, same facilities. Do you really think there will be a focus on development over winning? They are still for profit businesses that need to attract customers. If they are bottom of league of play against ecnl teams and consistently lose, the customers are not going to buy in.
What a blind fool. Can't imagine why your kid flopped and landed at a D3 with such deep insight into high level soccer.

Paul, your endless stream of invective, lies, distortion, wild speculation, and plain ignorance does not constitute a "discussion."

What happened to the website you started as an alternative to TS--you know, the one where all the "discussion" and "information" can happen non-stop and entirely on your terms? Maybe now is a good time to revisit that project. The naive readers you imagine yourself influencing will surely follow you there.

Doesn't seem like year round development to me. What they are seeing is they are merely getting their own current npl customers to bite. No ECNL players from outside their club signing up. So, what you have is a middle of the pack npl club in the new super league for girl's that is supposed to raise the competition level for your elite player from mass.
Sounds like Oakwood but be the Yankee United if the GDA. CT is at a disadvantage from a population standpoint and it's also a situation where the destination club is not the GDA. Having been around this for a while, I can tell you the CFC is viewed as the leading girls club out of CT. This is going to be messy in CT.

The waivers seems like a desperation move and completely counter to the spirit of what USSF is trying to accomplish.

Yup!! Only players that aren't totally committed to worry about high school soccer. The funny thing is the DA is being created so the NT level players can escape the riff raff so they can focus on becoming the best they can become
