Why would ECNL put up with being tier 2? They should boot any clubs that are in DA.

Why would current girls continue to play ECNL instead of trying to be part of the DA?  Looks like with the backing of US Soccer, the girls DA will be the tier 1 place to be and ECNL will be tier 2.  I would be willing to bet most top ECNL girls jump to the DA at these clubs even with the restrictions in place for DA ( if they are similar to boys restrictions).  

Because there are fewer spots in DA. If there are only 2 DA teams for TX (for every other age group), only one out of 9 ECNL girls can (or invited to) play DA.

When its all said and done, I bet there are more teams in Texas but I see what you are saying on the sheer numbers issue.

As for why ECNL allows clubs to have ECNL and DA that is a good question. With the backing of US Soccer it would seem DA would be the tier 1 league by default; particularly if that is where they start to look exclusively for their National team players.

How can Solar and FC Dallas put girls teams in DA and ECNL at the same time? I thought these were in direct competition.

Where will their #1 teams and players go? If they put their #1 teams in DA, and their #2 teams in ECNL, then ECNL suffers.

And, why is Liverpool never mentioned in any talks regarding DA or ECNL?

They are.  LP is considered an integral part of Solar and FCD's farm system...

My new favorite post EVER!

This is not the best time to make an announcement in North Texas, with everyone about to sign up for another soccer year.. Families excited about DA will be asking Sting and Texans why they should not leave to Solar and FCD...

Why make a partial announcement anyway!?

Same thing when ECNL started.  Same answer.  They'll form the DA teams from who they consider to be the best players.  Won't matter which club they're from.  Nor should it.

Parents who think they'll gain an edge by jumping over early are kidding themselves.

LOL. With all the team announcements, I'm surprised there haven't been any recruitment posts stating DA membership yet...

I'm not debating the actual results down the road... I'm saying why make a partial announcement now to cause Clubs some unnecessary headaches

They don't have a choice...and good luck booting teams from ECNL, who's going to take their place?

My guess is they announced a day before applications are finally due in order to get any clubs who were on the fence applied and committed.
The list is a who's who of girl's elite soccer. Any club who may have been wondering if the DA was going to actually be the #1 league in the country now have their answer - a resounding yes - and have 48 hours to finalize their application.

Reading TopDrawer article that came out today made it sound like other major clubs like Eclipse and Dallas Sting and Fc Virginia are holding out at the moment. Wich would make sence why they are not listed at the moment.

TopDrawer:

"But there are plenty who’ve still yet to commit, which makes the coming months interesting in the framework of will-they or won’t-they. Mega-clubs like Eclipse Select, Dallas Sting, and FC Virginia are still waiting in the wings in a figurative sense. Will they opt to stay or go?"

It's only the first 25 teams. They probably released this first wave just to make it clear the heavyweights are on board. Surf, Slammers and Blues are the big dogs in socal, plus mustang in nocal, Hawks and cup gold  in Midwest, and  PDA  and NEFC in Northeast plus Tophat and concorde in southeast. They have the big names in but I'm sure another 30 (or more) clubs will be added shortly. If Sting is claiming they didn't apply that would be a mighty strange move.

lol! I deserve that.

Not counting on it being the drawing card but what good is it to have the card if you're not going to play it? And for the record we have one spot left. Cool

Regarding the timing of the announcement, I don't think it'll have much impact because most teams are full at this point. There might be a spot open here or there for the aforementioned "impact" player but the DA type player has already found their ECNL home for this year and DA doesn't start for another year.

How will girls cope with the No Highschool soccer rule and mandatory practice 4 times a week?
