07 DA

07 DA

Post by Firedup on 21/1/2019, 3:22 am

Does anyone know what is happening to the 07 satellite DA teams (solar west, Texans south, Fcd west) next year? Are the clubs keeping those DA teams, moving them to ECNL, or are all those players going to be looking for new teams in classic?

To my knowledge none of those teams were granted u13 teams for 2019/2020 year when they made the request last year for u12.  I do believe the requests have been made by the clubs to get u13 teams but I do not think they have an answer just yet from USSDA.  Last years announcement per the link was made March 9, 2018.

No u13 team requests made last year by the 3 local clubs or at least not granted if they made the request: http://www.ussoccerda.com/20180309-news-16-new-clubs-added-for-2018-2019-season

The only example I see (could be more) of a team not getting a u13 DA team after having a u12 DA team would be RISE.  But that could have been more from a lack of structure, location, etc. but not 100% sure why RISE did not get a u13 DA.  Maybe they didn't make the request?  I don't know.

I do know that roster sizes will be reduced as the age group makes the transition to 11v11.  So you will have a mess of 08s going to classic league and several 07s that will either go back to classic or take the ECNL route that will be made available.

Good observation about the 08's. There are quite a lot of 08's, especially on the U12B teams. Their upcoming exodus from DA into Classic will cause a trickle down affect. Some kids holding D1 spots now won't be come July, as the former DA kids will take prime roster spots.
