Default ODP/RTC a complete waste of time & money?

Last year was awful. Complete waste of time. Is there any value anymore?

Hasn't been any value for at least 5 years, maybe more.

Even US Soccer recognizes that the program is useless -> they replaced it with the GDA as the primary path to the national team.

US Soccer didn't replace RTC/ODP, they made it "the stepping stone" to the GDA to sucker everyone in to pay the bills for the GDA. There are two girls soccer parents born every minute.

It's been replaced. GDA starts at 12 years old. There is no room in the market for an RTC program for 10 and 11 year olds. Those kids can get better training at their own clubs. If they can't they need to change clubs ASAP.

Time will tell. I predict huge increases in girls RTC & ODP numbers. They'll take them all to fill the coffers.

Sure, they'll take every rec player than can afford to pay. But the OP was asking if it's a waste of time and money and the answer is a resounding YES.
