DA Pays for what?

DA Pays for what? Empty DA Pays for what?

Post by Guest 10/03/16, 02:42 pm

This is probably a question for the boys site, but I'm too lazy to invent another username. I'm guessing there is someone on this site that knows the answer.

I understand the concept of DA. What I don't understand is, how does it work as far as USYS & USSF are concerned? Do the governing bodies actually send money to those teams? Do they pay the Coach's salary? Do they pay for field space, travel cost, uniforms? Who exactly, pays for what?

Cost

There are no fees for a club to participate in the U-15/16 and U-17/18 Academy program, aside from $10 per player and $25 per coach registration fee.

There are no fees for a club to participate in the U-13/14 Academy program, aside from $100 per player and $25 per coach registration fee.

U.S. Soccer covers all referee fees and event fees. Clubs are responsible for all of their travel and administrative expenses.

Scholarship Program

U.S. Soccer is pleased to announce the ninth year of the Development Academy Scholarship Program supported by the U.S. Soccer Foundation. The scholarships are designed to provide opportunities for full-time Academy players who require financial assistance to participate in the Development Academy Program.


Some clubs are free to play, the cost is either covered by the other players in the club or financial sponsor

So, US Soccers financial contribution is to cover fields, refs, costs of holding the events/league games.

I would expect the same for the girls DA. As far as player cost goes, just like the boys... either the other players in the club will offset the cost or a financial sponsor will. Or simply the player of the parent will still pay.

Small cost for the governing bodies.  Giant benefit for the very few selected clubs.

Should the governing bodies be in the business of doling out special privileges to the very members they are supposed to be equally representing/governing?
