Has it been a failure? I am admittedly ignorant about it, but it seemed from a distance to work well and accomplish its purpose. I am interested in hearing about what those with experience in it think about it.


IMO it's hit or miss and probably more lopsided than JDL. Some teams took whoever showed up. Several couldn't compete in LH D3. These secondary leagues "IMO" are truly money grabs that aren't competitive and as someone mentioned, a way to sell many consumers a bill of goods to lock in money. They are avenues for the bigs to have a closed system with no competition and it shows. I doubt any composite team could beat a LH D1 team. A few would be on the same level. DA2 or whatever they call it, sounds like the same premise. There should be 1 league for the super duper stars and another competitive league with relegation so you have distinct levels. We're headed toward dogs and cats mating in the streets and getting paid for it.

Call it what you want but here is how I see it.....

DA has showcases and a National Playoffs
ECNL has showcases and a National Playoffs
TCL (or any NPL) also has a chance to make National Playoffs
Premier League has a chance to make National Playoffs
Lake Highlands has a chance to make National Playoffs

DPL has the promise of training with the top team "sometimes" and to "follow the same curriculum".  Shouldn't all teams follow the club's curriculum?  If five other leagues will send teams to a national playoff where college coaches will go watch, why would it make sense to be in developmental pool of players who are not even playing in a sanctioned league?  Meanwhile everyone else gets an opportunity to attract attention.

ECNL has composite teams no showcases and no National Playoffs.

Honestly, it's because most were too embarrassed to show up here and admit that their daughter played on a composite team, paying for all that travel for a league that was generally no better than LHGCL DI.

Most TCL teams would beat all D1 teams especially since they use ecnl guests Not all do though. Oklahoma has stepped up their program.

Probably smart thing as USYS is the League with all the big$$$ and in business longer than any other league.

On DA site says da2 DPL is what the site calls it. Claims you can play high school. Not feeling that is really how it will work high school will be frowned upon.

The only problem with that is that each player has to be registered with their individual state and then play in the regional league offered so would these teams get a free pass into SRPL that is the only competition that allows entry into National League unless they try and change the rules but no bylaw has been changed.

Show me where on this official site for the DA

Our program is failing. I know let’s go down the same path as the men. That worked out well. A few weeks ago in Oklahoma where ecnl and tcl teams played. Ok did a lot of winning. Seems they figured something out. Maybe they keep teams together

The thing we need to be ready for in the future is that US Club Soccer ECNL and all USC leagues to be shut down as they are going against USSF. the federation are not happy with them.

The rumours are the new system will be:
USSF DA - MLS/USL/NWSL
USSF National - Solars Texans etc
USYS National League
USYS REGIONAL (region 3)
USYS AREA Lakehighlands
USYSA LOCAL Plano
USYS association Frisco

The question is what was/is it's purpose. You can look at DIGC results, I think the only division composite teams played in was 03. Solar and Sting, both are good teams but neither made it out of their brackets. In Solars case their D-1 team made it to the semis and their composite finished last. The point is there is no pecking order at the clubs, so composite was just another recruiting tool for a high cost league. DA2 will be more of the same. A great idea would be to have one top league ie ECNL or DA and another competitive local/regional league like maybe LH....I don't know but maybe that might be a simple and smart way to go.

Post by DeltaTauChi on 03/04/18, 12:51 pm

Going back to the 1st question I asked in this thread, it all depends on what the structure of DPL is.

If DPL is where the clubs are going to park their best teams at U13, U14, U16, + #2 team at U18/19, then it might be worth it, but you'll have to convince players/parents that it's in their best interest to forego any formal league/championship play in those years, or to be a mercenary for ECNL/LH/TCL whatever.

If DPL is going to be the #2 team in the club at every age group, then it is just the DA clubs' version of Composite/TCL.

From a competition standpoint, TCL is no better than what LH D1 would be if those teams had stayed put, and if DPL is the #2 teams in each age group for the DA club, it will be the same.  Regional travel to play league matches against similar competition that you can get in NTX, is a flat out waste of money...  UNLESS you are getting exposure to college coaches at those games that you weren't getting in LH.

One of the original selling points of TCL was that the ECNL clubs were going to synchronize TCL schedules with the ECNL schedules so that TCL games would be played on the same days, in close proximity to the ECNL matches, increasing the likelihood of College Coaches attending the games.  However, for the most part, that never materialized.  I've never seen or heard of a College Coach showing up at a TCL league match.

If the DA clubs can figure this out and have the DPL matches on the same days and locations as the DA matches, and can get College Coach traffic to DPL matches, then regional travel for these matches may make sense.

Otherwise, neither option provides any tangible benefit to the Non-DA or Non-ECNL kids over simply playing in LH and attending the regional showcases like Texas Cup, FC Dallas, Lonestar, DIGC, etc.

Your an idiot! Their are independent showcases you can enter your team in. Disney, Jefferson Cup, And I believe Wags. ECNL does not provide showcases or national play-offs for composite teams. Jack ass !
