Im looking on the Fbook page, it just shows all of the commitments.For whatever it’s worth, take a look at the DA’s Facebook page. I know it’s a marketing tool, but it does a good job of making it look like the girls are not regretting their decision. A key indicator will be if any (and how many) girls leave the DA and return to their respective high school teams.
You have to scroll down. there were/are posts of game performance, teams working out at strength and agility facility, bus rides to away games, etc.Im looking on the Fbook page, it just shows all of the commitments.
We shall see who stays and who goes.
This is not the "job" of DA, CUP, or any other club. It's the job of the player and family to ensure a college is the right fit for the prospective student-athlete. Sure, the club can influence it, but in the end, if a parent/player is making a decision on their future based off a club it's their own fault.I think the DA and CUP needs to do a better job find the right school fit for these players rather than what looks best on their web page. Some of these D1 committs arent getting any money and may never play. I know a few who would have been better off playing D2 and playing games and getting money rather than being role players for a few years and coming out in debt just so they can say they played Division one.
My daughter played on the HS Fall team her senior year and thought DB was a bigger d-bag than Tim. She had intention of accepting a spot on their ECNL team.People probably dont hate OE as much as you think, they just hate the pompous jackholes like you who spew OE propaganda non stop.
Welcome to yappi. The decision was a reflection on my daughter more than me. Just to put into perspective, the MRL was a good fit for my daughter. She finished college soccer a little over a year ago so there was no DA for her. The OE at her age wasn't all that good, at best, a distant 3rd best team in Cincinnati. So I'm not saying an invite to OE was all that special. As for competition, the top level MRL at the time was fine for her. She played against National Team players from Ohio at the time included Sandra Yu, I think one that played up an age at TFA and you may have heard of Rose. At least for her, she wanted to play on a competitive team and a team and coach that she enjoyed as well as challenged her. It all worked out fine for her. She got a great education and college experience and she has a good job.
I am interested in to why the numbers are down - Cost, concussion worries, travel, other sports, or what? Also seems odd because in this area BPYSL and other leagues have said they have record number of teams. Maybe the rest of the country is down but not sure the Ohio area is.Youth soccer is losing players – down from 11.2 million in 2011 to 8.9 million in 2015

I think BPYSL has become watered down with many teams that used to play in the CUSL.I am interested in to why the numbers are down - Cost, concussion worries, travel, other sports, or what?
