DA Cup Competition for 2019/2020

Sad little GDA mafioso is still in the denial stage of grief. Just wait until next season, when GDA's switch to single year age groups exposes the lack of depth at most clubs. Seriously, USSF can't get out of its own way.
Yes...so very sad.

Hate to burst anyone’s bubble, but I think this new format is nothing more than a way to meet college coaches demands.

I can’t quote the exact rule, nor do I know how to find it, but it was explained to me by a college coach. Apparently, when there is a maximum number of “viewings” days allowed, so in a showcase where there isn’t a champion crowned nor is it a part of any competition, each day counts toward their allowance. In a tournament, competition format, the entire thing only counts as one toward their allowance.

I possibly misunderstood the coach, so if I am off base, please let me know what the rule may be.

Looks like Albion 06 next up DA beat Albion 06 next up Surf and Albion Vegas next up DA at regionals. Could be a good squad for Albion at the next level along with Surf and Albion Vegas.

Albion Vegas did not make it out of the 05 bracket is that their next up DA squad?

The Albion Vegas 05 team will be GDA next season. The Albion Vegas 06 is a good team.

I could be wrong but I believe the 2006 Surf team at Far West was the 2nd team so will be DPL next year.

Your mistaken if you think USSDA cares about College Coaches, The entire reason for them taking on the Girls side is to have more Mallary's that forgo College. Do you honestly believe USSDA's Goal is to build and foster an enviorment so Collage Coaches have a better oppertunity to convince the Top Players to not follow Mallary's decisions and play 4 years of Collage Soccer.....? As they should be: The USSDA is about making more talented Soccer Players, Period. They are not in it to make more Smart Collage Educated People that Play Soccer..... USSDA Greatest Success Stories with be individuals with barely a high school education... They already have their 13 year old who may become there next Mallory..... im sure USSDA is highly concerned about "College Coaches " especially reguarding her future....

The Albion Vegas 05 team will be GDA next season. The Albion Vegas 06 is a good team.
What's the word on Albion Vegas? Are they going to be able to put together some competitive teams/good coaching? Well run? Or will they remain the ugly stepchild to Heat, etc.

My niece is on Albion 03gda and came from heat as a family we were not pleased with that team and what was going on . So far structure wise and planning we are impressed good group of players let's see how it all comes together over time but from the start happy to have made the switch. Very optimistic and hope for a good year.

There wasn’t a lot of movement at tryouts if that’s any indication on how this will turn out. Most players stayed Heat, LVSA, or at Players. I believe Albion will be well run. However, I don’t believe that have the personnel to be very competitive. They do have a couple of pieces, but we know at this point that you need a strong 11 and a solid bench in order to win and/or be competitive in these leagues. Heats 04 and 05 team are very talented groups and didn’t lose players. The Albion 03 team lost to Heats 03s at a tournament recently. The Albion 06 team should be competitive . I would be surprised if they weren’t.

At this point in time, most girls aren’t making moves because of recruiting , and they enjoy playing high school soccer. I hope Albion LV proves me wrong. I wish them much success as they are representing Nevada.
