I doubt she will make national team. It is way too political to get selected. I don't want to discourage you or your kid from trying but be realistic about it is all I am saying.

The reason is pretty straight forward.

The primary reason is because the players prefer ECNL. The secondary reason is it is very expensive. The GDA was funded by Crossfire while ECNL is not.

Crossfire out does not really affect the Reign. You are talking about 3 or 4 games only. Not enough to make a difference. That would not be the reason why the Reign would be out. The Reign may be out for different reasons. Take a look at the costs to play Reign.

Just another a piece of straw I guess, if it is true.

Considering 80% of the top players left Ecnl for DA id point out that players don’t prefer Ecnl.

Secondary reason is that clubs don’t want to pay for players, they want families to go back to paying 10-15k a year for Ecnl.

70% of the top talent in the US is in ECNL.

Locally in Portland it's about 50% ECNL. Thorns have 25% and unaffiliated have 25%.

Where are you from? Nearly every girl involved in HS and club soccer in Oregon elects to play at any OYSA club other than CU (THUSC) and FC P (specifically their US CLUB ecnleague teams), why? 99% of Oregon parents have no interest in spending thousands and thousands of dollars on worthless air travel to play similar teams, it's smarter and wiser they believe to save money ,stay local and play at the same level. This isn't Rocket Science.

Oregon only has one DA available for Girls and it's not at a local club it's part of the NWSL Portland Thorns professional org.

99.5 percent of all girls who play soccer in Oregon are not candidates for the DA level so it really operates in a vacuum outside of the purview of the normal fare club soccer, as such they attract, recruit and place the type of players they desire and fund(substantially) their cost of participation. The barrier to entry and selection makes it something of anomaly vs the local club offerings, just like the Timbers MLS Boys DA.

It's not like the Timbers DA or Thorns DA are local clubs where you are in if you have the ability to pay, and all is fine.
