The Sting is proud to be joining the Development Player League (DPL) for the 2021-2022 season. DPL fulfills another step in our mission to create additional opportunities for our players to develop and to play in college, and beyond if they wish. The DPL is a standards-driven national league that is connected to the Girls Academy (GA). The DPL and the GA are highly visible and dynamic organizations that are actively improving the competitive landscape across the country. The league believes in a philosophy “where nothing is given and everything is earned”, which fits well with what we have always believed here at Sunrise, and what we have done. The league will provide an excellent pathway for exposure for our older players to college coaches through league play and showcases. We will field our first teams in this league in the U13-U18 age groups.
