We just played a Varsity HS game against a team with a player on one of the local DA teams. I wouldn't think a DA player would get much development from playing school ball. Seems to be taking a huge risk.

Huge risk? It's soccer , a game, you are way over thinking this.

Risk of losing DA PT, possibly even spot on the DA team. It's not allowed. The rules are very clear. Players and parens know the rules so they're most at fault. If the club isn't aware they will hear soon enough - people talk. If the club doesn't shut it down then good luck with the wrath of players who did give up HS (and they're check writing parents)

I don't think the risk the poster is talking about is losing the player losing DA status. The bigger risk is getting injured, playing and practicing 6 days a week for HS , 2 + hours a day then add on DA- overuse injury. In addition, in HS games, an overmatched opponent may get frustrated and get a little more physical than they should resulting in injury.

This can be a real thing. I know of a player in another state who was a Club standout, but played some HS on the side. Small school, lower Division. Already committed to a D1 school before Senior year.

She quit 3 games into her senior season as it wasn't worth the injury risk.

There's that as well. Stupid thing to do on all fronts - injury/burnout risk, risk of punishment, definite risk of ticking off your teammates. Start acting like an adult - real life has tougher choices.
