Development Player League

The Development Player League (DPL) is designed to expand the Girls Academy (GA) player pool for participating clubs. The league creates a highly professional training environment and competitive model for aspiring GA players, bridging the gap between club soccer and Girls Academy soccer.

The DPL provides a clear pathway for players who show the potential to make the jump to the GA level of play. The DPL teams will offer players who excel to have the opportunity to be called up as a Development Player for their respective GA teams. This structure provides an expanded pool of aspiring GA players with more exposure to the GA training model and level of play while allowing them the time they need to develop as well as offering the flexibility to play high school soccer.

Founded on the ideology of the full GA program, the DPL provides a development structure that focuses on playing more meaningful games with a highly professional game day environment, more training, high-level coaching, development before winning attitude, and great exposure in major college showcases events.

Update on 2021-22 Season

The Cape Coral Soccer Association is pleased to announce that we will once again be participating in the Development Player League for the 2021/2022 season, and will be conducting tryouts for our DPL teams (U13-U19 girls teams) soon.

Current players from within CCSA as well as those from the surrounding area will have the opportunity to participate in a national level league that is focused on developing the player and empowering the athlete in a purposeful and memorable environment.

The DPL believes that through superior experiences, players will be able to showcase their talents, discover collegiate opportunities and build relationships through the game that will last a lifetime. It is a standards driven league connected to the Girls Academy that encourages clubs to compete and grow, maximizing the development of the players.

More information will be announced soon, including tryout dates and location for our DPL teams.
