That's for sure. At least with ECNL you get good training 4x per week and get to play with other top players. ODP - not so much.

Good training is what's expected at all Clubs, regardless of what league your team decides to play in. It's expected (Good training) as the fees to the club range between 2K and 10K a year depending on the amount of travel your team/club is planning.

ODP is part of the USYS infrastructure for state, regional and eventually the US Soccer National teams for player identification. OYSA ODP/RTC does have the bonus of player ID for the Portland Timbers Dev. Academy and now for the Portland Thorns GDA teams. So while serving it's USYS purpose: player ID for State, Regional and National programs, you also get to be scouted for the US Soccer Development Academy programs in Portland.

Didn't have many Oregonians involved with the ECNL ID program even though it was hosted here in town. Was the ECNL ID camp 4x this week as you mentioned above?

If your club is having practice 4x a week, then they clearly don't think too much about their quality and are making up for it with quantity. This isn't an argument for ODP, just a statement that it sounds like your club training isn't any good.

It's very hard to find quality youth coaching in Oregon, Period.

Which is a bummer.

We did it three years. Got progressively worse. Last year was terrible.

GDA mandates a minimum of 4 training sessions per week.

They have to because they know the coaching will be bottom of the beer barrel. So they force quantity to make up for quality.

And the point of the DA is to create talent for pro teams and the WNT, a mocel based upon the teams in other countries who have development academies. ECNL and other leagues are not based upon this. Their goal is to put players into college, at most. Again, if your team is practicing 4x a week, there is something wrong. And if they are using that time to do conditioning, that is also wrong. If the girls don't have the fortitude to condition on their own, then they shouldn't be playing.

If our team is training 4x per week and yours only 2x per week, we'll be pulling away from your team very quickly. Time to get with the program - or join Thorns Academy and play silver division at Beaverton Cup.
