That would explain the joint venture with ECNL. USSF knows ECNL produces NT players at the various levels.

Interesting article on wage disparity

Doubtful. Besides, this won' t enhance their position as there's far less free play (in fact hardly any) or other support on the girls side. It only highlights the disparity. It might look good on paper but once you dig deeper you see it's really more about power/control. Both sides didn't want to play nice but I put more of the blame on USSF's shoulders

You are correct. Didn't know USSF funding precludes it from Title IX

Blame for what? For daring to operate a girl's DA? They should have done it all along when they started one on the boy's side.

The boys DA has been largely a failure. Why extend the failure into the girls side where they have had ECNL be very successful?

I doubt the talented kids learning to play soccer at a high level without breaking the bank would deem it a failure.

Failure? That's a strong term. I'd say it hasn't lived up to expectations. Yes it's mostly well and good at the MLS clubs. But they only make up about 1/3 of DA, and not every one of them is free. The rest are pay to play, just like GDA will be. Also, there are some clubs in DA that don't do any better job training than many top non DA clubs. DA has gotten rid of a few clubs but not that many. When the theory is more training, fewer games, but your training isn't as good - are you better off?

Also, PT is a big issue - yes there is a minimum number of starts but clubs don't always follow it and it's only starts, not game time (plenty will pull a player after a few minutes). If you're a bench player, particularly at a non MLS club, then DA's benefits are not as clear cut.

If it is great for the players at the MLS clubs then great for the players that get that opportunity. On BOTN it is posted that a DA in NJ has announced they will have free DA on the Girl's side for older age groups. It is hard to not to see the benefit to those players able to get into that program it it a quality program.

On the boy's side, are the rosters smaller at the free academies in contrast to the others?

Hard to generalize. For MLS club it's a sunk cost. They have to pay a coach regardless if it's 18 or 22 kids. The incremental costs of food and shared hotel rooms when the travel for those extra players is minimal. At a pay to play club you still pay your coach but you don't cover travel. Then you're getting some income from all players. If you break even at player #18 then #19-22 is extra frosting on the cake

ECNL just announced TSC as its newest club. Third new club added this month. All 3 narratives say each club is "ECNL-only."

Are there some clubs going GDA only and ditching ECNL? Or maybe these announced clubs did not get a GDA.

Looks like ECNL is filling in geographical gaps. Is Westchester big enough of a "gap" to be filled with an ECNL club?
