Hello Everyone, I am sure someone may know the answer. I thought DA teams were not allowed to compete against non DA teams in tourneys. I believe that Surf cup is one of the tourneys that US Soccer has recognized. At Surf Cup there are two DPL teams (Surf 03 DPL Pilot and Galaxy SD DPL Pilot 03) in that grouping. I believe there are 3 or 4 other DPL pilot teams that were put in the U-16 groupings. One would think that at least one U-17 non DA team would deserve the opportunity to play with that division. I personally don't know the U-17 age group but I would think that there would be a team that can compete with the DA teams. I understand that the DPL 03 pilot program follow the same regiment as DA. Nevertheless, that league is not sanctioned by US Soccer. As I understand they will be allowed to participate in limited number of showcases against DA 03 Pilot from the frontier league. I don't have a stake in this one way or another. I was just curious because I thought US Soccer was very regimented regarding their participation and rules surrounding their non DA tourneys/showcases.
