DA/NPL

DA/NPL

Post by CSTinDFW on 10/11/2017, 9:13 am

Can someone please breakdown the DA and NPL system? How do they differ? When do they start, U12 or U13? How many DA or NPL teams are there? Who has DA teams, FC Dallas, Dallas Texans, Solar, how many are there, are they the only ones with DA teams? How do they put together the DA teams and how do kids in those organizations make a DA team? Are there tryouts? Can you play on a Classic team and an NPL or DA team? I'm trying to understand to be in the know and in order to set goals and to figure out what needs to happen between now and then. Thanks in advance!

FC Dallas, Dallas Texans and Solar have DA teams. They play each other plus 3 or 4 teams in Houston and 1 or 2 from Austin/San Antonio. DA starts at U12. They hold open try outs in May/June. It helps to already be on their radar by playing on good team at one of the 3 local clubs. DA is usually cheaper than Select or free. Fringe players may be dual rostered on DA and Classic. Starting 11 are usually full time DA. DA requires 3 or 4 days per week of training (depending on age) and does not allow more than 1 game per day. DA is for kids that are totally dedicated to excelling in soccer.

Don't know too much about NPL but I believe teams qualify for NPL by doing well in Classic league or State Cup.

I'm thinking that is SRPL, which is part of the USYS system that picks the stronger teams within each region of the US and forms multi-state leagues. Texas is in the Southern Region, thus SRPL (Southern Regional Premier League). Do well in either the Regional League or State Cup and you get to advance to USYS Regionals and possibly Nationals. Merit-based.

NPL is an "apply for inclusion" league. Put on by US Club Soccer. You do have to meet some basic requirements like having to field a team in each age group. I think this year Fever, City FC, and NTX Celtic are local teams in our region's NPL league (Red River Region).

From our multiyear experience, SRPL more organized and more competitive than NPL. But that said, BB's team beat the USYS Nat'l champ last year....and got lit up like a bonfire by the USCS National champ.
