Ten months after it began, the 2018-19 Development Academy boys season is over for New England's five clubs: New England Revolution, Oakwood SC, Boston Bolts, Beachside SC and Seacoast United.
The final event was the Summer Showcase and Playoffs, which were held from June 17-25 in Oceanside, Calif.
Only the Revs made playoffs at the U-19 age group, meaning the season ended by June 2 for others since there isn't a U-19 showcase event. Beachside was the region's sole U-17 qualifier for playoffs, while the other four played in the showcase event. No teams from New England made the playoffs (only eight from across the country accomplished this), so all five clubs featured in the showcase.
Let's take a look at how California treated New England's DA teams, with plenty of takeaways to mull over as a summertime break settles in.
