I keep reading this "unproven" thing. Unproven as to what?

Fury trials email sent from Riley to Alby girls were forwarded to ECNL. Not shocked, but this is another huge demerit for Alby and they already have more than EM (recruiting, field issues, etc)

As to whether or not it will succeed, be a better development track, improve the NT, become the #1 recruiting shopping spot for college coaches, cost less than ECNL, will diversify the talent pool....need other question marks or is that enough?

Unproven as to being the "top league" with "top talent" etc., you know, the whole kool aid schpeal that the early adopters have been gulping.

From what I've heard, Fury is doing ok-some key players, Alby ECNL'ers and disgruntled East Meadow divas and their annoying parents. LISC tryouts are heavy with delusional Massapequa kids, who can't even cut it in a low level league like NPL but think because Massapequa is a "member club" they belong on a GDA team, lol.

I just dont see any of that as relevant. Top league etc are all going to be based on perception. It is certainly a far better vehicle for my child to develop further than the ECNL is. In that respect it needs to prove nothing to me.

Thats all I am concerned about.

But that's the question! You say "it is certainly a far better vehicle for my child to develop further than ECNL". Based on what??? What they're selling?

On paper, my child training 4x a week with a bunch of kids from a kick and run Massapequa team under an unnamed coach, is no way better for her development than her training 3x a week with her club team and once a week with a supplemental (ODP/PDP).

My take: The 25 women's college soccer teams will be recruiting GDA. The mid and lower D1s will continue to recruit from ECNL. Unless a GDA stud wants to go to a specific school that is top notch academically but not soccer wise (think Va Tech, Vanderbilt, Furman, etc), the GDA gals will get recruited by the likes of ND, PSU, UVa, etc. If I wanted my kid to go to a D1 school and play soccer, I'd keep her in ECNL as I think that is where the majority of the coaches will go.

Having said that, the new "dead" period has radically changed the girls Disney Showcase and ECNL Sanford. No longer back to back. No longer 1 1/2 weeks for coaches to visit sunny FL and recruit (and allow their families to have a nice long vacation too). Now two separate trips. The question is which tournament will now see the most coaches???

No because much of how well your daughter develops depends on the club and the coaches, not the league. Some of the GDA clubs are garbage. If the GDA club nearest you is good, then lucky you. But that won't be the case for all. Nor will each club be able to attract the best players.

As always families should pick what works best for their players and their goals, but it won't always be whatever the "top" league is.
