The same can be said for the 06 and 07 landscape. So if your an 08 or later and consider yourself a top player and not at FCD or Solar. LEAVE NOW!!!

FCD is a really good team. After that, there's a small group of pretty good teams.

However, I would add that if you want to play for your high school, unfortunately you will have to forego DA and go ECNL. For many players whose sights are not set on the national team, but still want a look-see by D1 coaches, that is a better alternative.

ECNL is not a "better" alternative, but it is just a different alternative and definitely a very viable one.  If being on a high school soccer team is important to a player, they can still accomplish the majority of their goals by playing club soccer and high school.  

But if becoming the very best soccer player one can become and maximizing their chances of being an impact player in college is the primary goal, you tell me which is going to produce a better college prospect and a player that is more fully maximizing their potential...


  • Practicing with very good players for 7 months a year while playing games against varied quality of opponents in the Texas ECNL Conference in addition to spending 3 months doing the same with an even lesser quality of player you find at most, but not all, High School programs.

    Or...
    Training with the more advanced elite players that tend to congregate at Solar or FC Dallas four days a week for 10 months a year and playing games in the Frontier DA.



Those characteristics may differ depending on the region, but in Dallas the variance between the two options (DA or ECNL/HS) is quite clear.  

For some, the HS sacrifice is worth it.  For others with different priorities, it isn't.  I think the DA/ECNL split sucks, but the only silver lining is there is now a bit more variation of choice for finding the proper fit for each individual and their own personal ambitions.

The answer would be a logical one that will never happen. Major clubs would have two teams, one in each classification (ala Solar) but neither league is going to let that happen over an extended period of time since the net result would be a, more or less formal, two tiered system. That, in fact, may be the way it is right now anyway but at least the ECNL only clubs can focus their efforts/recruiting on the ECNL. And so far ECNL is still getting a substantial amount of people into D1 programs.

Good points and I agree. I also agree it won't happen and we're stuck with this current predicament that best serves nobody.

So far off the mark it's not funny. And we've been with one of those two for years.

There will be only two North Texas ECNL clubs going forward next year. Solar has officially announced they are stepping out of ECNL

Haven't seen Solar's announcement, but saw Real Colorado's tweet that they were returning to ECNL. With 2 teams per age group.

This might be a tipping point of sorts with Real dropping out of DA. I can't imagine Texas DA teams are going to spend all that travel money heading to Colorado just to help the Rush girls develop. Sporting KC is good, but Omaha is a joke and that two team trip might also be on the verge of falling apart. Lonestar may be next? And then does Solar drop ECNL and choose DA, or take the same two team offer for ECNL?  

This current situation isn't tenable.  Has to be more change on the horizon.

Texas now should look out for its own best interest. That's 4 ECNL teams in Colorado and 1 DA team. Let them do their own thing. Let Omaha and KC also do their own thing (there's a 7 team conference together... 10 if you ignore the below and add Oklahoma). Bye.

I propose a single Texas/OK Conference consisting of 5 three team pods...

Oklahoma Bracket - 1. TSC 2. Energy 3. Celtic
Houston bracket - 1. Albion 2. Dash. 3. Challenge
Central bracket - 1. Lonestar 2. Classics Elite 3. Sting Austin
Dallas bracket - 1. FCD 2. DFeeters 3. Solar B
NTX bracket - 1. Solar A 2. Sting Dallas 3. Texans

Start each season with home and home games against your own pod to determine seeding which determines your 4th game against each pod (that won't count toward standings, but will be made a "cup" game with three eventual winners - one from each seed). Each club plays a home and home against each pod. Two games weekends for the most part (the six intra-Dallas teams can spread it out with one game per weekend).  Travel is minimal. No plane trips.

Play each seed once and then the 4th pod game against the same seed (4th game doesn't count in standings, but it makes for an extra meaningful and competitive game as a "cup" game...i guess the first round of intra-pod games also don't count towards standings, just for seeding... So there's one game against each team that counts toward standings and playoff placement and then 6 "cup" games against similarly ranked opponents).

20 total games each, plus showcases, tournaments, and playoffs. Perfect.

You could convince me to cut a club or two (Sting Austin and Celtic), or to let the OK teams go play with Colorado. You probably have to give FCD a 2nd team to get their buy in. But even without all that, the above seems better than what we have now for every single family in every one of those clubs.

Take high school season off, but for those that don't want to play high school, schedule a few futsal tournaments to fill the hole in the schedule and make it a big thing. Maybe have a small sided tourney. Pods can combine players to make "regional" teams for these events, if need be.
