Working together to increase player development environments in the Southwest — a known hot bed of youth soccer talent — 10 of the most successful Girls DA clubs have joined forces to create an incredible option for their players, the new Development Player League (DPL).
This new girls-only league will focus on creating a pathway for players to progress, develop and be identified by creating a seamless bridge to the DA.
