Also, I know things are fluid, and Gregg might not be the USMNT Coach in four years. Nonetheless, if your goal was to play on a national team, wouldn't you want to play for a team that played that style of soccer? Thus, if the local DA clubs do have differing styles of play, are you better of playing for one of the local DA clubs that focuses on that style over another even if the other DA club is more successful? (Just pondering wasteful stuff instead of working to put food on the table for my nephews.)
(After thinking about my original post, I realized that it was more focused on the boys side of things. That was not my intention. My apologies. I know that the USWNT is looking for a new technical director but will probably not appoint one until the selection of a General Manager for the USWNT. Regardless, I think the same questions apply.)
Of the local three I don’t think there are huge variations in style but differing levels of execution and minor differences in emphasis. It is not like one team is playing direct and another tiki taka.
Regarding the National team I think the DA is trying to develop skilled players on the assumption that the national team will not just be lumping it forward and if they are it will will be better with skilled BSFs than unskilled BSFs.
Players will always have inherent skill sets that are more suited to certain details of a coach’s style. Some want a 9 to hold up ball. Others want a speedy 9 to get in behind. Hopefully one day the National team coach will have lots of great players to choose from.
