DA teams not allowed to play outside of DA

Post by 918soccer on Thu Aug 10, 2017 6:14 pm

Looks like DA is cracking down on teams playing outside of league.   

"No Outside Activity/Competitions
To maintain a focus on club training environments, Academy players and teams do not play in any outside competitions without written permission from the U.S. Soccer Development Academy staff. This includes any other leagues, tournaments, State Cup competitions, ODP or All-Star events."

"The Development Academy upholds this rule because we believe elite players require world class environments. The Development Academy’s 10-month Program allows for a greater opportunity to institute style of play and implement a system according to U.S. Soccer’s Development Philosophy. It also gives teams increased opportunities for younger kids in their club to “play up” against older players in both training and matches, thereby accelerating their development."

For the Oklahoma teams hoping to play DA teams in tournaments or scrimmages, it doesn't look like that's going to happen.

Do you think the real reason why is so that the "super elite" DA teams aren't beaten by "lowly" ECNL or club teams?
