I thought I'd start a thread for our current Zips who will be playing on various development teams this summer.

I'll start with Aodhan Quinn and DeAndre Yedlin who will be playing for the Seattle Sounders U23 PDL team.

...When the semester ends at Akron, Trapp will play with the Crew Soccer Academy for the summer. Both Bliss and Trapp acknowledge there are things the midfielder needs to work on during the summer and next season at Akron before he makes the transition to the next level. ...

So he's playing with the U18 team? Too bad he can't play for a PDL side .

I couldn't find the detail in that article. The U18 team doesn't seem correct. Perhaps they are referring to a PDL side affiliated with the Crew.

I'm pretty sure there's a team in Seattle that wouldn't mind another Akron midfielder joining them.

It's quite possible Trapp will play for the PDL club Michigan Bucks an affiliate of the Crew. Chad Barson played there last season.

There is a Crew Juniors U20 team which is referenced here (Crew 20): http://www.thecrewyo...ld/index_E.html. I vaguely remembered Chad Barson and Ben Speas played for a Crew U20 Development Team that won a USL Super-20 Championship last summer, and after some searching, here's that link: http://www.thecrew.c...-national-title

Looking over it again. Barson only played 4 games with the Bucks, probably splitting time with the Crew's U20 competitions is what I'm assuming. As all 4 Bucks games were spread out over 3 months.

Woah, Jay Göppingen used to play for Orange County Blue Star! and if you don't know who that is, look it up, it's an interesting fun fact.

I admit I didn't recognize Jurgen Klinsmann by that pseudonym, but I had read that he played for the Blue Star.

Is Orange County Blue Star comparable to Hollywood United FC or Hollywood All-Stars? Need more Vinnie Jones. One of my classic favorites is the Vinnie Jones halftime cursing rant.
