Default DA in NYC is about winning, development is secondary

Especially with young players, our experience was that the DA club did not offer clear feedback. They had a core beloved group and the rest. Unfortunately this is not always talent related. Besides politics, favorite families who have been with the club for ages, money, and similar 'considerations' there is subjective coach philosophy which is often a black box (one touches even if a kid is Neymar like, fast running even if somebody has better communication and field awareness, physical even if somebody plays beautifully and still manages tough situations, passing sideways and back even if somebody is goal hungry w results, etc). Then they have to sustain the EDP team, so a strong attacker and a strong midfielder are sacrificed to have that team have a chance at the lower level. A child can be developing fast, get promoted in training and games, then grow by a few inches, to which his brain needs to adapt. Until then, he would lose grace. No long term development focus, nor any attention to the kids psychology. Being thrown under the bus/shown the way out at the last minute, after other DA clubs have done tryouts is not uncommon. At the end of the day, one is left wondering was the kid's development a consideration at any time? Were they going to share any feedback befriend it is too late? Did the coaches actually try to develop the kid to overcome his weaknesses and more. Communication is not just lacking. There is a void. Unlike high level clinics which offer nuanced detailed feedback, NYC DAs offer s...

With the exception of MLS clubs, most DA clubs are pay-to-play businesses. They need wins to have good records, which gets them into playoffs and continues to attract talent that pays their fees. Even the MLS clubs want the wins, but at least they're less driven by $ and being top dogs means they automatically attract top talent. Unfortunately it's the system we're stuck with right now. As a parent just always keep in mind this is a business - find the best place for your player that's a good fit with good coaching. DA is great if you're a starter, but if you're not getting significant PT you might want to consider the next level down. You'll still be paying, still be traveling, but you'll be playing which still matters for development

Default DA2 Program

I read somewhere that USSDA is planning a DA2 league. Is this still true? What clubs in our region will be part of this?

Found this online

"What is the Development Academy 2 LEAGUE? (DA2)

US Soccer is supporting the creation of the DA2 league, and while we expect the competition for the DA spots to be fierce with many qualified candidates and therefore our club will also participate in the DA2 league as a founding member club.

The league will consist of up to "Nine" other "Developmental Academy Teams 2" from the Southwest Region.

The DA 2 teams will follow a similar schedule to that of the DA teams, often-times playing at the same venues, on the same days.

In order to maximize exposure for our DA 2 players, all announced DA2 coaches will be working hand-in-hand with the corresponding aged DA teams.

We believe the DA2 will help provide a direct link and pathway to the DA for our DA 2 players.

The DA2 players will also be able to continue to participate in high school soccer and will have Silverlakes and the Las Vegas Showcase built in to their annual schedule.

DA2 players also have the potential to be reassigned to the DA team on a part-time and full-time basis based upon performance and circumstance.

The DA2 platform will give Beach Futbol Club players every opportunity to continue to develop as high level performers on and off the field and the continued exposure that players of this level are typically looking for ."

Sounds limited in scope....for now. If they can shoehorn more clubs into the system they try.

There has been talk for some time about mls clubs splitting into their own league but the travel would be brutal
