THE DPL U-16 AGE GROUP
SAN DIEGO (March 29, 2018) – In order to better develop players, The Developmental Player League U-16 age group will follow standards-based programming for the 2018/19 Season.
The expectation placed on these clubs by the DPL in the 2003 Age Group include:
As part of the programming for the DPL U16 age group, those teams will participate as guest teams in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy Winter Showcase and Summer Showcases, to compete against U-16 DA Pilot Program teams from the Frontier Division.
“By continuing the programming for our current pool of players in the 2003 Age Group, many of whom are currently playing in the Development Academy, and continuing to mirror the minimum standards and best practices of the DA structure into next season we are excited to announce the opportunity for our players to perform at these fantastic events. From an individual player development and college recruitment perspective this is a win-win for our players.” – Barry Ritson, LA Premier FC.
