Good ole fashion A whooping for sure! So kidding but the transitive property of sports..... Concorde would have tied the Columbian team, great job concorde!!!
It's still crazy to me, not jealous, I think this is pretty amazing, but man, what do you think this trip costs -- close to $100,000??
The best part, and this is the goal, is the parents didnt have to pay anything. The club pays the travel cost. So the cost wouldnt concern me. If my child was on the team, I would be excited about him getting a chance to test his skills against players in another country and also he is seeing a different part of the world...

Sadly not really since the U17 X team ebbs n flows based on how the lads play from the group of 2003s and 2004s and a few pull-ups from the 2005s. You can get a good idea of who went and who is playing by looking at the Game Report for their last game vs CF U17s [https://bit.ly/2MPUnUF] or if you're familiar with the lads, you can view the pics in this tweet -

soccergurl- Sure look at SM post here
Soccerhouse- No, not that I know of. They train 5 days a week plus game/s weekends so they really want the boys to rest the body. (plus give us parents a needed break). If a team has a bye week then sometimes they will arrange a scrimmage but don't see any pickup games.
I'm sure some might play some indoor but why risk an injury/ starting spot.

I won't win any arguments, but we need to shift to a model where kids are playing in pick up games and encouraged to do so. Kids are playing because they want to, not because they have to.
If I was a coach, I'd arrange a session on weekend and let the kids know I'm going to be a few minutes late etc. Then I would actually never even show up, instead I'd go and just watch from a hidden location to see what the kids do. How do they react, what type of session do they run, do they scrimmage, or do they just goof off an bail and leave.
shirts vs skins, throw anything down as goals and just play. could you imagine these days if a club played shirts vs skins, somebody would probably be sent to jail. God for bid you show up at training not wearing a training shirt etc. Just freaking play!
did the AU 17s only play 2 games in South America? Seems a long way to go to just play 2 games? Am I missing something?

AU 15s, 17s, 19s at Orlando
15s : 2-0 AU win 17s : 0-1 AU loss 19s: 2-2 AU tie
Drama at the U17s game as a red card issued to AU player(not clear what for), two goals called back for AU with one of the goals taken back as a result of the confusion regarding free kicks and offensive players being in or around the wall. Ref made the right call but...
Side note and a wee bit late. Saw the post about the Inter Miami goalie taking a leak on the pitch during the game. Sadly, that is true. Player feigned injury, got the game stopped for what everyone thought was an injury that required the trainer's attention. In a coordinated move, all the goalie's teammates make a circle of trust around him and he purports to drop and pee inside the 6 yard box. They could have gotten away with it, had the trainer been within the circle as opposed to lingering around the 18 counting sheep. I give them kudos for the ingenuity though, however nasty it might have been..
PassionforSoccer2019: MR was like the investigative reporter who found out to much. Oh and by the way their Girls DOC resigned today bc of the leadership - or lack there of.

atlsoccerdad: MR was given a nice package to leave quietly and keep his mouth shut. Some shady things at Rush for sure... probably all the way up at the National level...

slickdaddy96: MR has a history of not staying too long anywhere though at least recently and for dropping some curse words regularly as well though.

honeybadger: So do y'all play out of the Fowler location? Maybe we will scrimmage over this fall break? Have we played y'all this season in a tournament? If we do play y'all, we'll have to talk on the sideline!!

slickdaddy96: who are you speaking to honeybadger? I'm confused....

southside steve: KIESS resigned

atl44: Where did you hear that? When did he resign?
Oct 1, 2019 15:40:52 GMT -5
southside steve: e-mail sent to me. from GA SOCCER. i assume it was sent to all members: Steve Keiss has resigned his position as President of the Georgia Soccer Board of Directors. The Georgia Soccer Board would like to thank Steve for his 12 years of service to the Board

JJQ90: SK did resign, are there more to follow?
Oct 7, 2019 9:25:08 GMT -5
soccerdriver4: Georgia Soccer and NL need a jump start. SCCL needs promotion/relegation, and better communication a must. Too much last minute stuff.
Oct 7, 2019 15:24:50 GMT -5
no news: SK is a lifetime member and still an ODP coach. Perhaps he is just moving on without anything more to it

Question: Why is soccer in Georgia and most other states fragmented and can it be fixed?
Oct 12, 2019 9:34:48 GMT -5
atlfutboldad: Why? Poor management/oversight from USYS. Can it be fixed? Doubtful, clubs don't want it fixed. It would take directive from the *weak* USSF.
