    Always give credit where credit is due. Those years from u12-u14 will forever be our favorite club years. That was a special group of girls, and what they accomplished was one for the record books. they all have very bright futures ahead and in some amazing programs. Don't sleep on Arizona! ☺️⚽

    Yes the girl who went to Stanford is a great player! And it’s sad to see a handful of girls who went D1 two years ago (local Scottsdale) either still sitting the bench or most have quit. Just ask around. Point is, just because a coach can help get you to D1 doesn’t mean it’s the right fit. School first then soccer!

    You're forgetting something...most of the decent DA players (05 and older I'd say) have already received quite a bit of attention from colleges. Colleges track players, and coaches help with that process. It doesn't all disappear just because you no longer have "the patch". Colleges know the situation. They will continue to track them...for the same reasons the ECNL teams want them. ;)

    I get the feeling that ECNL is going to do everything they can to make sure they are top league next year. ECNL will continue to add more and more quality clubs in the next couple of months.

    I will say I was a little surprised to see CA Thorns ...must be the name sake there . because their teams we played during da..weren't strong. La Roca and FC Dallas are great programs and even better competition. Those were good pick ups.

    CA Thorns' U15 and U16 teams were at the top or near the top of the table in the GDA this past year.

    I wasn't referring to either age group...haven't been u15 or 16 in several years .so don't care. I was talking about the big picture..having two strong teams is good..but not great. Earthquakes are a much stronger club in the North..and have a reputation for producing lots of top ynt players on both the boys and girls side....big picture. Just a thought...it's why we are all here..reading this stuff. Cheers!

    Just look at BE’s history (especially @ SMU) and I have experienced BE personally when my daughter was with SERENO & RSL. He is pathological and has no problem lying to your face or when addressing a group of parents. He is also abusive to the players - there was a video that one of the players recorded him addressing the team and was completely ridiculous with number of F bombs just because they were asking about Exos. Was so happy to leave that club my daughter’s last year and didn’t care we lost the deposit since we had accepted a spot on the DA team.

    My daughter’s college coach has already advised the team their budget for upcoming year will be cut by minimum of 10% as of now.

    This is exactly the stuff that is the Most concerning to us...what the repercussions are going to be at the college level. Ours graduates next year...and who knows how this year will effect next year..and so forth...it's a ripple effect.

    PT was great for my daughter as well as one of her teammates. He made more calls to college coaches for them than her own coach at RSL even though he had only seen them play when he was with SERENO and knew them through Soccer Resource. Both girls got to D1 programs and played since Freshman year. Very grateful to PT for his assistance and guidance through the process.

    They must be doing something right. They are ranked #80 in Soccerwire's Top 100 Girls Soccer Clubs:

    If these schools wanted to, they could find the money just by looking at the football programs (if they have one), seriously how many different helmets or uniform combinations do they need.

    I just read that University of Oregon has asked all coaches in all sports to take a 10% pay cut to help the budget.

    Sadly the people I've spoke with worry more about Boys Soccer being cut at the College level, than girls soccer. There reasoning is Title XI.

    It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

    I'm surprised this hasn't gained more traction in discussions. The article you posted has a dozen others on this topic, and is a real concern for college programs. The non revenue generating sports like Soccer, and many other could be in serious jeopardy and some have been canceled already. Especially at schools with small athletic budgets. Football will drive everything, and if we can't get football going then watch out. Makes all the hard work our players put in for this goal, seem worrisome right now. There will be some impacts, what? We don't know yet.

    Title 9 will be interesting to see how it affects the girls side. I have heard the schools can ask for a waiver to bypass it. Interesting for sure, and I'm with you looking to see how this plays out.

    Major public college football programs could lose billions in revenue if no season is played
    It's more than just helmets....These programs are money making machines. No money...no season..more cuts...ughh..
