We have always enjoyed playing/watching PacNW, they have been consistently competitive and play a high quality possession style of soccer. They will be a welcome addition. SU Iím not so convinced, theyíve put out competitive teams at the youngest ages but they seem to fall off at older age levels. Hard to tell how much of that is attrition to other top clubs vs. lack of development and coaching?

US Soccer has it's policies, no participation in club soccer,, HS or ODP only play in the DA. It's been this way for over a decade with the boys. US Club thought they would get clubs to share players between the DA and their club league, didn't happen. Top shelf players went to the top platform DA when a club was dual registered (DA and US Club), watering down the US Club product to the point where Oregon teams that couldn't get a result vs anyone in the last 3 years, are now magically league leaders.
It's not a good sign for US Club in terms of being 'the' platform, they are adjusting to more of a regional flavor since that cannot justify the spend to travel all over the country to play other mediocre club teams, something clubs can do for less than a quarter tank of gas cost.

Youíre right. This is the beginning of the end for the failed experiment called GDA. Couldnít attract or retain top talent. Sparsely attended showcases. Clubs bailing or opting for ECNL. Stick a fork in them, theyíre done.
