IDK. It struck me as odd that LA Galaxy San Diego is in the red bracket and LA Galaxy is in the blue bracket.Seriously- anyone have an idea how that selected teams in top division. I heard MLS wanted there DA teams in the top bracket hence why Portland, Quakes and LA Galaxy are in the top bracket. Damn you mls teams!
Thanks oh Canada. Makes sense to me!I'm guessing Portland Thorns heard about the absurdity of these groupings and just said, "no thanks". A cup competition is contrary to the D in DA after all. US Soccer keeps standings, so they could make these groupings more accurate by age group. But that would take a little more work, of course.
Not really, SD the more established historically competitive program that changed names from Carlsbad. LA Galaxy girls a relative newcomer still trying to find their level and build a program.I was under assumption that LA Galaxy San Diego was just a subsidiary of LA Galaxy. So it seems odd to me that the “main branch” of LA Galaxy would be in a lower bracket than their subsidiary.
San Diego is a “Franchise” so to speak. Like LA Surf and OC Surf.I was under assumption that LA Galaxy San Diego was just a subsidiary of LA Galaxy. So it seems odd to me that the “main branch” of LA Galaxy would be in a lower bracket than their subsidiary.
LAGSD finished ahead of LAG in all “3” DA age groups last season where records and standings were kept. (U15/16-17/18-19).San Diego is a “Franchise” so to speak. Like LA Surf and OC Surf.
Brackets were determined by Club Ranking across all age groups. I don’t know how they calculated it but I’d assume some sort of average. Per the website:
“Clubs are divided into two tiers, Tier 1 and Tier 2, then divided into regional groups. Tier 1 will be composed of 24 top-performing clubs and the number of Tier 2 clubs is dependent on Academy membership for the 2019-20 season.”
