NEW DEVELOPMENT PLAYER LEAGUE — ACADEMY II — KICKS OFF

Extending the U.S. Soccer’s Elite Development Academy Player Pool, Youth Soccer Clubs in the Southwest Announce New Girls Development Player League (DPL)

SAN DIEGO, April 7, 2017, — Working together to benefit player development in the Southwest — a known hot bed of youth soccer talent — ten highly successful youth soccer clubs in the Girls U. S. Soccer Development Academy have announced today the launch of Development Player League (DPL) Academy II.

Albion SC, LA Galaxy, Legends SC, LA Galaxy SD, Eagles SC, LA Premier FC, SC Del Sol, Beach FC, Real So Cal and Pateadores have joined forces to help provide more player development opportunities for girls and have formed a new youth soccer league designed to fit directly under U.S. Soccer’s Girls Development Academy.

The Development Player League (DPL) will be the platform for the extended player pool of their elite Development Academy teams.

The new league will focus on creating a pathway for players to progress, develop and be identified creating a seamless bridge between the DA and Academy II.

“Through conversations with our membership we quickly realized that there was a gap in our system with the implementation of the new U.S. Soccer Girls Development Academy and after sharing those concerns with other DOC’s it became apparent that if we collaborate the gap can be closed,” said Barry Ritson, Executive Director of LAPFC.

“The Development Player League is a fantastic compliment to the United States Soccer Development Academy,” said Steve Sampson, former USA National Team Coach and Technical Director.

"This is an opportunity for our second teams to have their own familiar pathway to reaching their club soccer goals," says Mauricio Ingrassia, Club Director Of Coaching

of Beach Futbol Club. "Having ten DA clubs working together in the number one hotbed for youth soccer in the country is inspiring.”

The DPL will include the 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001 and 2000/1999 age groups.

Selected youth players will be designated as Development Players for their club’s DA teams.

“Instead of carrying heavy rosters, where players aren’t getting proper playing time to develop, they can now be placed in the Academy II program in an environment that will allow this growth,” said Courtney Drummond, Assistant Academy Director of LA Galaxy SD.

Although mirroring the USSF DA in many ways, players in the DPL will be able to play High School soccer. Teams will also be able to compete in US Youth Soccer’s National Championships on a local, regional and national level. In addition, the Academy II teams will participate in 2 major showcases for college exposure. The teams will participate in the November Silverlakes Showcase and March Las Vegas Showcase.

“This is a natural next step in our commitment to further enhance our player programming,” says Matt Tutton, LA Galaxy Technical Consultant. “We always want to be on the forefront of development for our player pool.”

“I am really excited for the upcoming league,” said Michael Duggan, Academy Director of LA Galaxy SD. “It’s a great player pathway for the girls who have aspirations of playing in the development academy.

“At Legends FC, we have been very attentive to our academy program as a whole,” said Kevin Boyd, Academy Director at Legends FC. “It is a tribute to all 10 directors that we were able to work together and create a league that fits all the different needs.”

"This is a great opportunity for all of our clubs. We are thankful to the federation for supporting us in this venture,” says Jon Szczuka, Club Director of Pateadores.

“Players participating in this league will be able to compete against some of the best competition while choosing to mirror the development philosophy of U.S. Soccer,”

said Noah Gins, CEO/Executive Director Albion SC. “The clubs participating in this league are committed to excellence, proper development and high level competition and I am very proud to be involved in its inception.”

Yeah... That has not exactly been loved in socal and it's not sanctioned by the federation.

Notice the date of publication on that article.. April of 2017... the federation did not give its blessing on it.

But the movement of players, when needed, was done without any paper work or complications.

How do you know? They get to play while working towards DA time. If you plan on adding information. Please share with us your experiences. If you have any. All I hear is a broken record with a old song.

C'mon now ATP ... What do you really know about the DPL other than what you read on the SoCal forum?  And since you brought it up, how many matches (or lack thereof) did the '02 pilot teams at Solar and FCD play in comparison to the '01/'02s, or '03s for that matter?  Tell us about the significant drop off you refer to here that made it so "bad".

I don't know what anyone is complaining about. The trend of structural changes i.e of new leagues new field sizes new age groups occurring every year is certainly great for development.

What would help even more is if maybe we can get an entirely new league system every year for the next five years. Then on top of that maybe we can actually pay a little more.

So let's give it up for all those in charge of Youth Soccer here in the United States. They're doing it because they love our kids and the industry, er I mean game.

Heck my motto has always been, "more money, better soccer".

It's all watered down politics. You got the cash you can buy the patch. Basically we added more spots to sell more kids on the bench. I could move to Colorado and spend that money more wisely.

I was hoping ECNL had some big OL soccer balls. What a joke. It's evident money is all they care about.

I didn't inhale baby?!#$@ I need a new friend.

What am I reaching for? As I’ve said before, no skin in the game any longer. Just putting info out there. Trying to be objective, which I don’t think most are. Most seem to be angling their opinions to support their decisions/narratives...

Colorado clubs Rush and Real have some of the top players in the nation. Their teams compete at a very high level both in ECNL and now in DA. Their is no dought ECNL made more money for coaches and clubs. Where DA finatually is better for the players.clubs and coaches being in a business are not looking to lose money. The DA financial responsibility from the club is greater. I can’t believe I just said that.

Colorado is at least part of the NT considerations. NTX not so much, never has and prob never will given the political aspect of it. Sad really.

I’ve seen more NT players from NTX in the past 3-4 years than I’ve seen ever. It is improving. Two and even three players per age group.

We’ve got to start somewhere! With players on the youth teams this could translate players making the big team.

I am actually agreeing with you that it can. I just doubt it will. Yes they do have to start somewhere. Had players on the youth before and that led to nothing. However maybe you are right here.
