THE DEVELOPMENT PLAYER LEAGUE ELECTS UNITED STATES SPECIALITY SPORTS ASSOCIATION ("USSSA") AS NATIONAL SANCTIONING BODY

Los Angeles, CA – USSSA is to sanction the nationwide Development Player League (DPL), allowing players to continue along a pathway set out by U.S. Soccer Federation. The DPL is a supplement league assisting clubs across the country that compete at the highest level of the sport, primarily in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy for Girls.

Slated to start play in September 2019, the DPL Schedule will allow players to continue playing high school soccer while developing their technical and tactical skills through club soccer. This platform best fits players and clubs who value both programs for their development, while adding another level of play offered by member clubs.
“The focus is to create the best environment for our members and help build more pathways for players on a national platform with a goal of collegiate participation central to the structure” stated Barry Ritson, President of Development Player League. “Clubs from across the country will help foster and grow our league, which we believe is beneficial for member markets and programs.”

The league will kick off in three regions this fall (2019); West, Southwest and East. Continued growth is now in motion between new League Commissioner Sean Carey, DPL Member Clubs and sanctioning body USSSA.
“In speaking with Barry and Sean, the vision fits our model of organizations and individuals we look to align with.” Vice President of USSSA, Craig Scriven said. “Our mission as a member of U.S. Soccer is to support the growth and pathways available to players throughout the country and in working with the Development Player League, we achieve this.”

USSSA is a multisport organization with over 4,000,000 members in sports; soccer, baseball, softball, basketball, volleyball, golf, martial arts and seven other sanctioned sports. They have been a member of U.S. Soccer since 2001 and work with leagues, tournaments, clubs, teams in over 45 states. To learn more about USSSA, visit; www.usssasoccer.com. Contact USSSA; soccerinfo@usssa.com.

The Developmental Player League (DPL) was initially created through collaboration between the Southwest Division Girls DA clubs. The focus was to expand the player pool for the DA and align with some of the core US Soccer Initiatives. Through the success of the program the DPL has expanded into key markets for the 2019/20 Season and added some of the top clubs in the country. The DPL and will include the 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002/2001 age groups. Learn more about the DPL by visiting here; www.dpleague.org. Contact DPL; sean@dpleague.org

Dynamo | Dash Youth Partners with South Texas Youth Soccer Association

Posted on May 11, 2019 BY Simon Boddison

Dynamo Dash Youth logo

Immediate Release - Saturday, May 11, 2019

Over the last several weeks, the club’s leadership has been finalizing plans for the future. In particular, we have been evaluating our participation in the U.S. Club Soccer (USC) league. 

After serious consideration and evaluation, we have decided that it is in our club’s best interest to move away from USC and over to the South Texas Youth Soccer Association (STYSA). STYSA serves over 100,000 players in the South Texas region and is one of the U.S. Soccer Federation’s largest State Associations.

This move aligns with our club’s interests, core values, and mission going forward. Most importantly, it will serve as a positive improvement for our players. This will not have any effect on the quality coaching, first class facilities or the service to the membership. The change will be effective in the 2019 fall season.

This does not impact players at the U.S. Developmental Academy, Frontier Development League or the Recreational level as they do not compete in the USC. 

Since announcing our exclusive partnership with the Houston Dynamo and Dash two years ago, our club has flourished to become the leading choice for players, coaches, staff, and volunteers throughout Houston. We are the largest club with 7,500 players and membership growth of 66% since taking the field as the Dynamo | Dash Youth in the fall of 2017. We remain the only club in Houston to serve boys and girls of all skill levels, from recreational soccer to the prestigious U.S. Developmental Academy. 

Moving over to STYSA will best position and further strengthen the club for future growth. Our competitive players will now have the following benefits:

  • Opportunity to positively impact the league and tournament environments for our players
  • Options to play games closer to your community and on our “home” fields
  • Increases the competition and ability level opportunities with new opponents and a wider variety of cup competitions
  • Easier access to state, regional and national cup competitions
  • The club will have greater control over the weekend schedule, fewer coaching conflicts and less travel time for families
  • The club will have more player pass opportunities
  • We would have the option to place some girls' teams to compete against boys’ teams at 10-13 years of age.
  • Aligns league affiliation with Houston Dynamo Academy  

If you have any questions, please contact your Head Team Coach and/ or Director of Coaching. Our staff are very excited for the start of tryouts next week and will also be available to answer any additional questions or concerns from our membership.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to leading and serving the youth soccer community for the future.
