Talking Western NY - Buffalo vs Rochester vs Syracuse

* Cincinnati United Premier: Services Cincinnati, metro population 2.1 million.
* Crew SC Academy: Services Columbus, metro population 2.0 million.
* Crew SC Academy Wolves: Services Detroit, metro population 4.3 million.
* Fort Wayne United FC: Services Fort Wayne, metro population 0.4 million.
* Indiana Fire Academy: Services Indianapolis, metro population 2.0 million.
* Internationals: Services Cleveland, metro population 2.0 million.
* Vardar: Services Detroit (2nd Detroit team), metro population 4.3 million.
** Summary: 2 million per team, except for the Fort Wayne outlier.

Compare to the DA teams in Carolina Region:
* Carolina Rapids: Services north Charlotte, metro population 2.5 million.
* Charlotte Soccer Academy: Services SE Charlotte (2nd Charlotte team), metro poulation 2.5 million.
* Charlotte Soccer Academy North: Appears to be u12 only. Services north Charlotte (3rd Charlotte team), metro poulation 2.5 million.
* Discoveries Soccer Club: Appears to be u12 only. Services south Charlotte (4th Charlotte team kind of) and very north Columbia SC, metro population ???
* ISL FC: Services Charlotte (5th Charlotte team), metro population 2.5 million.
* North Carolina FC Youth: Services Raleigh, metro population 2.0 million.
* North Carolina FC Youth Del Sol: u12 only. Services Raleigh
* North Carolina FC Youth South: Services Raleigh, metro population 2.0 million.
* North Carolina Fusion: Services Greensboro, metro population 1.6 million.
** Summary: 3 all-age Charlotte teams plus 2 u12 teams. So the population per team is 500k (using 5 teams) or 850k (using 3 teams). The 2-3 Raleigh teams are between 700k (using 3 teams) to 1 million (using 2 teams).

Compare to the teams in Florida North:
* Armada FC Pro Academy: Services Jacksonville, metro pop 1.6m.
* Chargers SC: Services Tampa, metro pop 3.0m.
* Florida Rush Soccer Club: Services Orlando, metro pop 2.4m.
* IMG Academy: Services Tampa (2nd team), metro pop 3.0m.
* Orlando City SC: Services Orlando (2nd team), metro pop 2.4m.
* Players Club of Tampa Bay: Services Tampa (3rd team), metro pop 3.0m.
* TBU Rowdies: Services Tampa (4th team), metro pop 3.0m.
** Summary: Tampa teams are at 1million per team. Orlando teams are at 1.2m per team. Jacksonville at 1.6m per team.

So, in summary, if Buffalo and Rochester each had a single DA team, that would be reasonable.
No and no!!!. Why try to fix what is not broken. Again I appreciate your gusto in having more than one club have a DA team. And if you followed the GDA last year they had allowed WNY Flash the DA on the girls side. And they also gave it to EU later in the selection process. WNY Flash got it because they were a womans pro club as the MLS clubs are on the mens side. To be a member of the US Soccer DA league its not as just saying I want to be part of it. Please review us soccers da application process. I dont know to many clubs in either rochester or buffalo that have teams and coaches for each age group. EU still stands out there overall. There is another caviat for upstate when considering the DA we are 100s of miles from the nearest competitor. All the locations you have pointed out are easily driven in a few hrs at best. For EU and Montreal they have to drive 5 to 7 hrs for a game and us soccer does not like kids being slept multiple hrs and days to play. Thats unfortunatly another variable considered when they pick a club. Just enjoy the fact that at least we have the opportunity to have a local da club. No its not perfect but its the only one here right now.

Response from EU staff games are available to the coaching staff on Hidl. Please ask your NYCFC coach to share link with you. I know the coaching staff shares the link with their teams for review after each game. I know some da clubs were posting some games on youtube the past few years. But I think now they put them on this new site.

"If we have it. It will be on Hidl . They know that they can get it from there ."
My understanding is NYCFC puts their recorded games on the same site/server. You may have to ask your coaching staff to provide you a link to it. Let me know if this helps.

Somewhat off the thread theme, but my son is interested in RIT for school (computers ) but is also interested in soccer. He's getting D1 and D3 interest but really doesn't want a D1 job. Any scoop on the coach or program would be appreciated!
