Will they still be at St. John's? Plus, they are now doing this with the GDA probably forced their hand a bit to go full BDA. They have also had success with their boys teams recently which helps draw.

It's a fully funded MLS club. That's the draw. They had this plan all along and USSF is more than happy to give them full status.

I heard that the NYCFC Youth Affiliate League is suffering some team defections. I guess the affiliate clubs (some of which are also in DA) are tired of getting their top players picked off at U12 and up.

That's going to happen whether or not they are affiliates. The problem with the Affiliate League was a complete lack of organization. Frequent missing refs, missing teams, rescheduling, etc.

Is the Affiliate League dead for next year? Have any clubs announced that they are dropping out?

Why would any club play or affiliate with these pro clubs? What do they get in return?

They always are promised a trickle down effect of new registrations but it never materializes.

Total waste of time and resources. Plenty of good competitive leagues for teams to participate in from EDP to NYCSL that those clubs should focus on.

They get the illusion that the club is a direct path to a professional one. That brings in lots of foolish parents to the clubs, plus camps etc. They also got a league with better competition than most would find elsewhere. But it was poorly run. Not sure where some of the younger teams will play next year

As another said non MLS clubs will lose their best players to the MLS teams no matter what they do. to me I think it's better to join them than to try and fight the tide. Some of these non MLS clubs are going to take a hit to boys ECNL, so I think they need whatever they can to make them stronger, not weaker.
