You are right. CIF won't allow you to play club and high school at the same time. Doesn't matter if club is GDA, ECNL, whatever, you cannot play both at the same time. You can play 5v5, futsal and indoor soccer, but not 11v11. You can't even practice with your club team during high school. In regards to Placer GDA and high school soccer, what I understand is they are allowing 02 and older to play high school since most have already been playing high school soccer. They are grandfathered in, so to speak. The 03's and younger will not be able to play High School soccer, ever, but they can do other sports such as track, etc. What I find misleading about telling the 03's they can do other sports is that it's nearly impossible to do a high school sport and attend the 4 mandatory GDA practices every week. If the GDA is going to be as strict as the boy's DA in regards to practice attendance, that rules out pretty much any extra-curricular activity (band, drama, chorus, everything). A lot of sacrifices for questionable gain IMO.
