Easier said than done. Not all clubs have good LHGCL options or any real D1 options for that matter. And who is to assume that the LHGCL teams want the castoffs or that the castoffs want the LHGCL teams within the club (for example, inconvenient practice times or locations)?  Expansion followed by contraction - yet another way the clubs have messed with DDs after the age pure split. It would have been far smoother if the clubs didn’t race to create 2-3 teams “above” LHGCL.

Decisions ,decisions , decisions You are right about one thing clubs don’t make decisions over your convenience. Plus, you could clearly see that this is power play by the soccer federation to increase their control over women’s soccer. It seems ultimatums have been given. You are all in or your out! Like it, don’t like it , love it, or leave it.

This seems like it could be a bad move for Solar. Especially from the girls side. Girls DA still seems like it could blow up anytime. From major clubs pulling out, to Heinrichs being canned, to the u17 debacle, the future of GDA still seems uncertain. FCD doesn't really care. Players will continue lining up in Frisco.

All these u17 players were in ECNL at some  point.
Nationals at u12 won’t solve anything.
Our pay per play model won’t keep us afloat on top of Everest forever.
The rest of the world are more technical and tactical . So far, we were just plain fortunate that other countries didn’t have a bigger player pool and funds until now.
I am just disappointed to see 2 girls from ntx in theu17 squad.
All I am saying , we need new ideas , new coaching methodologies in nurturing local talent.
Nothing has changed in NTX no matter what leagues our DDs are playing.  same clubs , same drills , same beliefs , same DOCS and same results year after year.

Nationals in ECNL is U13 as has always been the case in USYSA.

You touch on many solid issues, but what no one wants to say...

It's the American way if doing things that ultimately gets in the way.

Super teams at U8, to win at all costs, pund anyone and everyone , write big checks to ensure it. What's the fancy medal at U9 get them... Just more wins.

Not all played ECNL, but that was not really the point. No one ever said anything about u12. What's disappointing about NTX players making the YNT? Agree that nothing has changed.

So back to my question... is it true that FCD and Solar will be dropping ECNL after this season? That'll make for a very interesting summer.

I don’t see this happening unless of course they are pressured from an outside source. FCD with a women’s pro team in the near future would embrace the DA system to feed players into that pro team.

It may not be a popular decision but won’t slow down the solar red girls machine behind a star studded coaching staff.

Re: TEXANS / FC Dallas out of ECNL

Most soccer regions are scrambling to resolve the dilution crisis by getting all of the top clubs in local markets in the same league. The thought is that dilution and reduced competition will gradually impact performance against markets with stronger competition. This is the situation that clubs like Solar and Tophat find themselves in. Many at Tophat believe the competition in GDA has dropped too far in their region and could hurt the club in the long run, and they are working to reverse the problem by gettng all of the top clubs from Georgia in the same league. The question isn't whether clubs should choose GDA or ECNL, its whether they can improve competition by finding a solution to dilution. If Solar and FCD drop ECNL, NTX and leagues in this region will remain diluted. Solar and FCD have the power to fix this problem, bring all of the top clubs together and form one of the most competitive leagues in the country once again.

I believe it's the opposite... The high number of teams creates the dilution you see. By decreasing the number of teams, the best talent from each squad migrating to the remaining squads increases the talent depth on each respective squad in each league.

Yep, I’m pretty sure FC Dallas and Solar could careless about the other clubs in this city. They want the talent to continue to crush it at the national level.

Is it true now ... no.  Neither know WTH they're going to be doing next year at this point.

Will it be true at some point next June ... maybe.  

Same speculation as last year.
