The PCU team entered a league, played the games, had a goal and achieved it. It matters to the kids. Thats why they were out there. Its not on you to tell them what their dream is. Don't belittle or demean their achievement.
Agreed.

I agree with you. Wanting to be the best in 2nd Division is considered a goal.

Sure, why not? Not everyone wants soccer to be the only focus in their life. But when you join a team and do your best, you set goals for yourself and as a team.

Once again, why belittle others achievements?

While I expect that longer term, the DA will be a step up the pyramid from OYSA, I'm not sure that was entirely case during the DA's inaugural season. Many clubs (including PCU) didn't field DA teams, WT put their second team in DA and their first team in OYSA, and many parents took a wait-and-see attitude towards it, so condescending the OYSA 04s is probably not appropriate.

This season, I expect to see clearer separation between DA and OYSA. WT is now putting their first teams in DA in all age groups, and there were quite a few players from non-DA clubs trying out for DA teams, and leaving their old clubs if accepted.

But even so--such snootiness isn't called for. There are plenty of teams/leagues around that would smoke the local DA teams, and compared to whom the local DA teams are "rec". There's always someone better than you.

And with the Timbers running their DA teams, one can argue that the local club DAs aren't even the top of the pyramid locally.

acting like DA is exclusive or hard to make is laughable. and what will be funnier is a couple years from now when premier level players who stayed out of DA have developed beyond those in the unproven, vanilla, no-fun DA program.

ADF 04B won FWRL. Oregon gets a wildcard team in 02B, not04B.

Maybe PCU cannot go, so WT is going as runner-up?

That would make sense. It's happened before.
