Here is the scenario: DD wants to play ECNL next season. Looking at current options she can play lower div. same age group, with good coach and get lots of play time. Alternatively, join lower div. with older girls to keep up with the speed of the game but likely less game opportunity. Thoughts?

All good options.  What does your DD want from soccer?  What does she need to achieve that?  Make your best plan, move forward and don't look back, period.  Don't expect any coach/team/club to meet all of her soccer needs, especially if she aspires to a high level of competition and achievement.  You will never, ever find perfect.  If high level is her goal, fill in the gaps with supplemental training:  privates, speed and agility, Paradigm, etc. etc.  This is a soccer resource rich area.  If you DD is less competitive and more about having fun with a like-minded group of great kids, don't screw it up for her by pushing for high level.

Just my two cents.  Very Happy

Itsme's points are all good ones.

The timing of the question is interesting as most players are aligned, signed with teams at this point.

If her aspiration is to play ECNL next year I would recommend that she joins the team that meets the most of these points:
. has good coaching
. she can play most of the game
. she is a player who impacts the game outcome
. she is on the field at crunch time
. the team plays against the best quality competition from a size, speed and tactical perspective

I'm sure others will also have some good points to look for as well.
