    You make a lot of good points. Thanks for sharing your opinion. I think my initial post was a bit impulsive. I was confused about the U16 age group and the limited exposure on the website, so I appreciate your input.

    Good luck to all the dds that are playing on the Pilot teams.

    I think Pats didn't report the game correctly. The game day report for the DA u16 game includes the players on the DA 02/03 and there is no report for the DA 02/03 game. Perhaps a Pats parent can clarify.

    There is a reporting mistake on the website. For some reason its confusing the 02/03 DA result and mixing the rosters with the 03 DA pilot result and roster. Hopefully the website will get it corrected the correct score for the 02/03 U17/U16 DA was LA Premier 2 Pat's 0.

    Ok, to make sure I'm understanding, you are saying that u16 will exist as a single year age group, and that u16/u17 will go away. Is that correct? (apologies, if I'm being obtuse, the whole thread was difficult to follow)

    No, at least 2 DA regions have added a u16 age group this making the DA lineup:

    U14
    U15
    U16
    U16/17
    U18/19

    Got it. Thanks. Is USSDA then going to u16 only then in 2019-20, or is that not known yet? What's best guess?

    Most of the clubs in the country don’t want single banded age group. It appears DA appeased SoCal and Texas because they’ve been the drivers of single age band.

    Most clubs don’t have the kids or the money to support single age band and at a few DA meetings there was a vocal opposition.

    But it’s clear ECNL’s “all-in” campaign and fight for talent woke up DA out of its ego to force the Pilot this season. Perhaps they will force single age band next season and lose clubs in the process.

    San Pedro! Play from time to time at Daniels field. About 15 years ago played up at Bogdanovich Park in San Pedro as well. But those fields were ankle breakers. Also heard a RUMOR that an outside developer wants to turn 9 holes of Victoria Golf Course in Carson into a sports complex.

    Thx for the info. But there is single age band in ECNL isn't there? So why would clubs have a problem with it for DA?

    For some of the DA clubs it’s funding and a lot more travel. I don’t have their specific reason. Certainly those clubs offered and took DA as an opportunity to get in front of more families. But I’m not sure of their specific motives.

    Two old teammates on that roster are also listed on the U16/17 roster for LAPFC. Are they allowed to switch back and forth. Just curious because I was looking for a few other former teammates from last year's DA team and it doesn't look like they made the cut. But then again where can you find Pilot or DPL rosters. I can only find DA.
    I don't even see the score posted yet or any game info. Is it the Home team's job to post scores? That first LAPFC game was a few weeks ago and it's still not posted. Other clubs played this past weekend and have already posted scores.

    Score is posted correctly and the game cards are correct on the DA website.
