As the first DA Season is just about complete, I wonder if the Pay to Play model will soon be dead. On the boys side the fully funded/ partially funded clubs appear to have more success, I could be wrong. Let's look at the landscape now (please correct me if I am wrong): Pat's = Fully Funded LA Galaxy = Fully Funded LAFC Slammers = Partially Funded West Coast (OC Surf) = Pay to Play Blues = Pay to Play Eagles = Pay to Play LAPFC = Pay to Play Albion = Pay to Play Surf = Pay to Play Beach = Pay to Play Legends = Pay to Play LA Galaxy SD = Pay to Play Real So Cal = Pay to Play Let's look at how things might soon change: Pat's = Fully Funded (Remains) LA Galaxy = Fully Funded (Remains) LAFC Slammers = Rumor has it they will be fully funded next year, if not next year then soon. OC Surf = Changed from West Coast FC to OC Surf with goal in mind to be fully funded within a few years, Blues = Pay to Play - Can they ever change this model, too small? Eagles = Pay to Play - Can they ever change this model, too small? LAPFC = Pay to Play - Are there plans to change? Albion = Pay to Play - Are the boys fully funded? If yes, I can see them trying to with girls. Surf = Pay to Play - Working on fully funded. It will happen within a few years. Beach = Pay to Play. I could see them obtaining fully funded status. Large club. Legends = Pay to Play. Definetly see them achieving fully funded one day. LA Galaxy SD = Pay to Play. Can they achieve it? Possibly. Are they going to try. Real So Cal = Are boys fully funded. I can see them going for it. What are your thoughts, if Slammers and Pats are fully funded, that will be a huge draw for top talent. Pats only needs a group of smart parents to say our 5 or 6 girls could make the XX team really strong. let's got heir for free. How are small clubs going to compete. Doesn't Strikers on the boys side struggle a bit? Not sure could be wrong. What are your thoughts, let's get some dialogue going. My last daughter in club soccer soon ages out, so we will never see this. But I can see the landscape changing for sure. Can you?
