A GDA will only work if the academy has quality coaches. Getting a GDA but having the same coaches really means IMHO money maker and that's it.

Has any description of the GDA curriculum been announced?

At this stage I think people are more curious about what clubs are involved rather than coaches. As for curriculum they can just borrow from the boys side - after all it has worked so well

I'm confused. If there is Surf in Westchester and Suffolk, where are the Brooklyn/Queens girls going? Suffolk?

Ask Larry on BOTN - he seems to know EVERYTHING and yet NOTHING all at the same time

It depends on the age, as there are only certain age teams in each location. Some NYC/LI kids are planning to commute to Westchester multiple times a week for practices and games. It seems like a tiring plan to do, but if it's your best option, I guess you make sacrifices.

If that's their best option, that is awful and won't last. Only B and C level players are going there. And if, and a big IF at this point, Surf does turn out to have success, those B and C level players will be replaced with A level players. Just a fact.

that is exactly right. Assuming Surf builds to what they want it to be this, many of this year's players will be out next year as the better players migrate in. Those players are waiting to see if Surf lives up to the BOTN hype. Plus there will be other changes with GDA, boys ECNL etc. next year - if you thought the birth year change brought a lot of turmoil, there's more to come. A player with a good spot now is better off staying put until some of these things get resolved in the next several months.

Yes, but it's the parents that are driving these kids to switch teams all in search of God knows what. We had a boy leave our team - a strong division 2 team. Kid was skilled but a total air head. Daddy was upset that the coach would not get angry enough with the team and in particular his son when games were lost. He should have spanked his son himself or taken him to a hypnotist so that he would remember his position on the field but instead he wanted the coach to be an a-hole to the entire team ... all because he couldn't discipline his kid himself.

Anyways - that guy is gone. Hopefully, they don't come back in a year after they see the $2.5k they've spend didn't help.

Now tryouts in Nassau with no coaches or fields there either. What the hell are they doing and who would go there? What a clusterf$&!

Every day it just looks more and more like a money grab.
