    starting in the 2022-23 season.

    From the club-


    We are extremely excited to announce that we will join the DPL (Development Player League) for the 2022/2023 Season! This is an incredible step for our girls program and growth we have seen the past couple years. With this national platform, our elite girls will play against some of the top clubs in the country with additional college exposure to play at the next level. We are very excited to take the next step and offer our players the same! More information to come about the new league. GO THUNDER

    This will further water down APL.

    This is another money grab letter league. It will be more travel and more money for parents. These teams have good enough competition in APL.
  5. TT has moved from RSL to Thunder. I bet he'll be a nice addition to their DPL program

    Thunder recruited Trey Thompson away from the RSL ECRL program. Good USSF A licensed coach.

    Probably because he get getting overlooked to coach the top teams at RSL.

    At some point it some people think why not be the top dog at a smaller program vs getting overlooked at the biggest program.

    I think there is a lot of truth to that.
