The Development Player League announced last week in a press released that it would be enhancing and restructuring its competition, adding a "Girls Academy League" consisting of former Girls DA clubs.

The league announced last week in a press release that "we have been inundated with requests from clubs to expand the DPL from all areas of the country," in the wake of the Girls DA closing.

Per the release, the organization is looking to maintain the level of the DA and offer a bit of wiggle room to clubs when it comes to the rules.

"By unifying DA clubs from conferences across the country we have found a way to maintain several of the defining standards of the Development Academy with flexibility in two key areas; permission for all players in the Girls Academy League to participate in High School Soccer and revising the substitution rules to encourage clubs to better utilize their player pools, especially when showcasing their players to college coaches."

The initial six conferences have been announced on the league's social media account. Check out an FAQ over there as well. A seventh, the Northwest Conference, was just announced on Monday, May 4.

The permission for HS soccer is not really what many might think it means. It is a very restricted permission which makes it almost impossible for a player to play HS soccer and be allowed on the club roster. They are saying that it will be up to the clubs to decide, however, the clubs have agreed on common rules for this.

As an 07 parent we will be looking at how our club handles the HS issue this year. We have been told that they prefer players do club but are fine with HS and the major workaround is that they will schedule games for those ages outside of the HS season. We were shown a tentative schedule that had pretty well zero games for sept through mid Nov. we will see what actually happens.

Didn’t they advertise this as a 10-month league? If so, HS soccer will be very difficult.

“The new Girls Academy will uphold the highest standards and principles, all in alignment with what we do at Long Island Soccer Club,” said Gary Book, Long Island SC Academy Director. “The aim is to continue to provide the opportunity for our players to have consistent competition over 10 months”.

There’s no way you can have HS soccer plus 4 club practices per week and games on the weekends.

One more thing, the Mid-Atlantic conference includes Virginia clubs. Those players have HS ball in the spring.
