DA for girls seems start with U14, however Boy DA starts with U12.

Any potential that USSF could start girl DA with U12 as well?

That was discussed at length in the public webinars and Q&A sessions.

The firm answer was no. The stated reason..

"Girls are different than boys and we feel that the girls do not need it. The girls DA program will not mirror the boys in the format structure for that reason".

I believe the slide decks from those webinars are listed publicly.

Yeah, it's definitely helped the US men's soccer team... best athletes play other spots so until soccer pays football-like salaries, we're an also ran.

It's what I've been saying for years, no $$$. That and the fact that until our demographics change soccer is not in the DNA sole of US athletics. Now, when ESPN starts doing Soccer Game Day...
