U.S. Soccer Development Academy Club Realignment Tracker (Girls 3.0)

The recent shutdown of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy has left many clubs needing to find a new competitive platform for their top teams.

Since the official announcement of the DA’s closure, the soccer world has sprung into action, seeking to fill the void. The Development Player League (DPL) has created a new Girls Academy League, and the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) has ramped up its acceptance of new member clubs.

To keep up with this evolving story, SoccerWire has launched a Girls DA Club Realignment Tracker, which will be updated regularly, as more former DA clubs finalize their plans for the 2020-2021 season.

So far, 61 former Girls DA clubs have already finalized their national membership either in the ECNL or newly-launched Girls Academy League. Only 4 former Girls DA clubs have not joined one of the two leagues to this point.

DA Club representatives who would like to report their teams’ realignment plans for next season should send an email to [email protected].

*National Memberships below do not necessarily indicate final plans for placement of top teams.
