    Funny, Koty Millard was rostered with USSF South Carolina Battery . . . how'd that work with the "no high school soccer" rule of the Academy. Great idea, if everyone follows the rule. He's not the only player, it's a problem that needs to be addressed.

    @Fran Koty's schools, Cardinal Newman, sounds like a private school. Academy players are permitted to receive waivers to play for their private high schools if their participation in a sport in some way affected their financial aid. At many private schools, their is an expectation that students on financial aid contribute to the school in multiple ways and thus the USSF recognized that they could not ask such students to leave their private school. The rule states that such players are not permitted to participate in academy games during the duration of their high school season. Once their season is over, they are allowed to fully rejoin the academy

    Travis, thank you for your response. I understand that many private schools players were caught in that "no man's land" of having to play for their school as a requirement of getting aid or playing for their academy team. That was the reason for the waivers. However, there were a lot of players and clubs that turned a blind eye to that requirement, in large part because USSF did nothing to enforce it. I know of attempts to get clarification from US Soccer about the policy and the response was a very poor one. It was basically that the teams themselves will police compliance. From personal experience and observation, that was not happening. I believe that the 10 month season should have been instituted for incoming 9th graders, instead of expecting kids who had played for their high school for up to 3 years, and were likely among the best players, to drop out of high school soccer altogether. Having said that, there were a lot of players and their parents, who believed in the concept of the 10 month season and worked with our sons to reach the difficult decision to give up high school to commit to the Academy. It was very disheartening to see that there were players who did not make the same decision who were able to enjoy their successes on the field with their high school team as well as be a part of the Academy.
