    It goes faster if you have a signed form from your current club. No club can hold your ASA player card hostage. You can contact the ASA office and request a release of club affiliation it just takes longer this way.

    As many have said these rules only apply to ASA sanctioned leagues and neither ECNL, ECRL, GA, DPL, SCNSL, EA, MLS Next fall under that banner.

    It isn't even an ASA card to worry about.

    If you leave a club to go to MLS Next, ECNL, GA, DPL, ecRl...all those leagues have their own cards. Basically when you leave it doesn't matter if your current club wants to hold your ASA card. You don't need it. You will get a new card from US Club Soccer (ECNL/ECRL) and I forget who cards GA/DPL.

    In other words you don't need a release from your current club or ASA to leave. Now they (your current club) may want to hold you to fees not paid for the rest of the year, but that is a different story.

    Indeed. Loyalty, respect and integrity should run both ways between Club/coach and player/parent, but some Clubs/coaches seem to treat that interdependency as a one way street.
    I wonder how EA was sold to current RSL ECNL players. I heard zoom calls took place. If I had a kid on an RSL ECNL team going in to Junior yr HS or older, I would be p***ed - when it actually matters, a decent league with good college showcases has been whipped from under their feet. Although, I guess, any furore all depends if the rumors of recruiting violations are true - maybe they just chose to switch to EA for other reasons.

    As a fait accompli.

    Based on witnessing something like this a few years ago...Erwin will tell the parents they are LUCKY to be in this hot league and it is going to be amazing.

    I would also be grumpy if my kid got stuck with this situation.

    If RSL were kicked out for violations, then, if they had any integrity, they should have been honest with the players/parents and should have offered a waiver for each to tryout at another ECNL clubs if they wanted. At that point only, they would have put themselves in any moral position to talk about EA.

    BTW, apparently the club's core values are
    • Commitment
    • Honesty
    • Respect
    • Resilience
    • Giver

    That would be why I started with an "If" ... the examples the Hound gave relating to BE are facts mind, I witnessed those.

    Rsl had a zoom call on Apr. 26th. With mls and ecnl players/parents. They obviously knew what was coming down a lot sooner than that. Even though they were offering ecnl roster spots prior, as if nothing was changing. Luckily, try outs at most clubs started 5 days later. So there was an exit strategy if you were looking for one. After going through a ton of change with my 03 over the years, im hoping my 08 doesn't have to go through the same. Change can bring opportunity, but stability with the leagues needs to be there. There is always plenty of room at the top. You just have to find the right fit.

    That is just the baseline level of testicular fortitude I was looking for! The ability to tell others about your experience and parties involved, good or bad.

    A state league club doesn’t have to agree to loaning out players to ECNL clubs as Discovery Players. However, if you decided to leave and join the ECNL club as a full time player than you don’t need their permission since you are leaving. DPs are loaner players and their club has to sign agreeing to the loan.

    It is definitely stressful, but also a farce for the most part. a good experience, but as we know 90-95% of the teams are predetermined. We were told what team our DD would be on a week before tryouts, lol

    It gets a lot easier as they get older. Very little drama compared to let's say u11-u14

    What level teams?

    My kid just hit the U18/19 group. Was strange getting the new TeamSnap with that age. The club ride is about over.

    Enjoy the last year of club. It goes by fast. Makes you realize how crazy the club soccer scene is once you see the end coming near. The kids and parents have gone through many changes over years with the birth year change, merging of clubs, clubs getting DA then becoming GA, clubs getting ECNL, other clubs going back to ECNL, clubs getting MLS, Coaching changes, etc
