USSF doesn't care about multisport athletes. They want a 100% soccer commitment. Does that mean great players won't do DA? Definitely. But they don't care about 99% of the players anyway. If any NT players are multisport kids USSF will quickly squash that

To the GDA girls competing this weekend, enjoy your final weekend of HS sports. I'm sure it will be bittersweet. No sarcasm here - I hope you are making the right decision. I'm sure that weighs heavily on you and you are sacrificing a lot. I hope it's worth it.
Jesh what a Debbie Downer. Some girls might actually be happy about their choices, but thanks for planting those seeds of doubt.

I got news for you. Life isn't all about touchy feely feelings. You do what you have to do and move on.

The only person worried and unhappy is the person who spends so much time trashing the GDA. Likely a DOC for a particular club's ECNL program. I can think of one club whose had a few players and coaches leave to be elsewhere.

Please don't ruin the chances of Oregon girls ever being able to compete at all vs their sisters to the south. Please don't turn Thorns Oregon GDA into some weakened same old club kind of gig. GDA doesn't have to be a Yugo in Oregon. Girls might threaten but they will give up other soccer & sports for a legitimate GDA program.
gda team in Oregon is not a Yugo. That is dumb.

Allowing kids to do other sports and only practice a couple days a week will give life balance and that is important. Why is it any of your business?

The girls knew going in that they were making a choice to give up some things to be a better soccer player. Why is that so bittersweet? Nobody forced them.

Agree and m kids are not in the GDA. It's their business, not ours.

Agree and good for them. The girls in CA are going full bore with a minimum of 4 practices per week with no other soccer or other sports/distractions. We have local girls also willing to go all in for soccer and that's a good thing. Our girls are already so far behind the girls from CA and other states. We should get behind the local girls that are willing to make the sacrifices necessary to become an elite soccer player.

It's easier if we lean on the name of a league 'Elite' to take care of it for us. How's that going for you?

You are wrong and have taken things out of context. "Outside competition" is referencing non DA soccer. You have a minimum number of training session per week. As long as you meet the training requirements, you can do whatever you want as longs as it does not include another soccer team.
