Would love to get some objective opinions on which road to take.

Our DD is currently playing in LHGCL.  She is 05 birth year.  She does well in league play and gets decent playing time....team is middle-of-the-pack.  Good team camaraderie...and coach is just OK.  Team will likely be weaker next year with anticipated 'defections'.

Questions:
1. Is it better to keep her playing with 'older' girls on a weaker team on a '04 D2 or D3 --OR-- become more dominant with her age group peers on a top-of-the-pack '05AP D1 team?  Or, go with best coach no matter which age group?

2. During this transitional year, why doesn't NTSSA allow an easier and earlier release process for players wanting to check out an AP team versus Grade Year team in order to make a more informed decision before the chaos of June is upon us?

My opinion only;

1) Every child is different and you as a parent have to decide what is best for them. If you ask your child what they want then they will want to stay on the same team 90% of the time. That may not be the best long term decision for your child. I recommend playing her at her age level with the best technical coach you can find. Don't worry about LHGCL seeding for next year or for coaches win/loss record. The league will be a mess next year because of all the changes on every team. It will take a couple of years to settle out.

2) North Texas voted and approved allowing additional time this year for open practice. Their bylaws have already been updated "After completion of State Cup competition for their age group or completion of league play for their team, whichever is last (the end of the soccer-playing year for competitive players), players may practice with other teams without any required release or other permission, although formal tryouts may not be held until July 1." State Cup for U11-U18 will finish on May 8th unless delayed by weather.
