Pet Peeve - listening to a few holier than thou dads pick on a college aged ref (young college aged ref) about how bad he was. Mostly because their team wasn't getting any calls. One dad said he was a ref and you could "buy" your ref creds and that the refs don't have basic knowledge of the game. I bet they (the 3 dudes) couldn't pass the tests... or the recerts. I was biting my tongue so hard as to say anything. If things were so bad why aren't they ref-ing? They sure seemed to know everything.
They also assumed the center was in High School. Dudes, the girls playing are juniors and seniors in high school. I thought the center had to be older than the players. If the players are SENIORS in high school, how can he be in High School?
Game was very even. Both teams brought physicality and weren't afraid to get into some intense battles. Most were clean - some were not, and those were called. Neither team could finish. Game ended 0-0.
Just don't complain if you aren't going to do something about it!!
Watched most of both games. The second game started late due to a storm delay so both teams were frozen solid and slipping on the wet turf. I would say they (the 16/17s) looked fairly evenly matched in those conditions.
My daughter played AFTER that game. BRRRR!!!
They were very evenly matched. I know boys on both teams. Great game - lots of back and forth action.
Think that is more of a Forsyth County Parks and Rec issue, right? I thought that UFA leased or rented that space from the county. I think the county has the ultimate decision on dimensions and layout. Not 100% sure but think that is the case.
You are correct - Forsyth County Parks and Rec dictates which fields can be used by UFA and which are to be used by other organizations. So "empty" fields are not "empty" - they are designated to other groups.

OH NO!!! Our best to her and your family! I agree with goteam - follow the rehab instructions! We had a friend come back from surgery only to re-injure herself her first tournament back in the game. Careful recovery!
What is nice when clubs do this also for the younger academy teams -- let kids play up but not down. I've seen so many u9/u10 games, where a top team player from the opposition suits up against a 3rd team. (sometimes its necessary to field a team, often its not)
Gotta be careful what you are saying - I know what you mean but the "new to soccer" person could be confused.
There are 2 kinds of up / down - Age and Skill Level.
Soccerhouse is talking about up a skill level in this post. In clubs where players are pooled - there are skill level groupings. Some clubs are able to do what is being discussed - make sure the more advanced skill levels do not play in a lower skill level. That is nice and helpful for the still developing players. But sometimes it's unavoidable.
I know it's probably obvious, but you can never play down from your age in regular season play. There are more nuances, but for the sake of simplicity, let's leave it at that.
Tournaments are different beasts altogether as is rostering and age in U13 and older players. One step at a time.
Quick update for you. They're playing in the region iii championships and have won all three games with 10 goals for, 1 against. They're killing it as always.
We left our club and joined CFA (different age group) for the upcoming year and are excited to see how things go. CFA is a very new club and we expect some bumps as far as organization and such (no overpaid admin to help push paper for them) but I think it's going to be a great year from what I've seen so far!
For all the admins out there - I'm going to take offense at that "overpaid admin" comment. Go ahead and volunteer to be a TM. Better yet, go ahead and learn the complicated system used for administrative purposes for GA Soccer. Be an admin around State Cup / tournament time / team declaration time / opening day. I believe you'll be singing a different tune. Phones and emails blowing up. Personal time?? Non-existent. Unfortunately, paperwork is a just another thing that must be dealt with if you want to participate. Herding cats comes to mind.
On the other hand - I hope your son enjoys next season!

"Guest Players" are not allowed. You can transfer players from other clubs to your roster before the checkin deadline. The players must be either in your club (club pass) or on your roster (via transfer if necessary).
I think a big problem that we have is we're too focused on the individual, not focused on the team. And so this whole idea of technical ability and who's talented and who skillful, there are a lot of guys that are talented and skillful and have some soccer brains. But where we're coming up short lately is putting it together."
Teams (recruited) full of great skilled players who can't win a game because they are all "Messi" or "Ronaldo" or "pick your favorite superstar." They don't have time to learn about each from each other and trust each other because they are looking for the next best thing. Last I looked there were 11 on the field, not just 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1...
Eager to see the UFA kits in person. Kids couldn't make the fittings etc. Like the look of the kits though. Has Lloyds begun shipping them out to team managers? I can drink me some coffee for sure, so saving a few cents never hurts, especially since they are building a new dunkin on peachtree industrial by pinckneyville
UFA Mountains - got our kits last week. They are slightly different. Only black shorts. Different socks.

My older children (now U14 and U15) had a great experience playing super y - because they ended up getting a great deal of playing time. We didn't go anywhere for summer vacation, so they got to play a lot with their own teams and the older teams who were generally scheduled right after their games.
Lots of touches over the summer and when fall rolled around they were very ready for team camp.

zizou: US Men's program has done following since 2011: Missed 2 Olympics, missed U17 World Cup, missed U20 World Cup, missed 2018 Senior World Cup. Is this trajectory USSF is looking for? Don't worry, DA only been going 10 yrs. Just give it more time.

Soccerhouse: Mens program is in great shape, right where we want to be. Nothing needs to change. Missing world cups, and olympics etc.......

teenie: I think its become an elitist sport in the USA not for kids with one parent there are so many potentially young under 12 great players at the rec level with no money or parents to take them on these expensive and time consuming club trips

GAME OVER @ 14 yrs old. : US values: arrogance, showy skills no game sense,height. Favorites in small national pool(picked young) Every kid is finished at 14. Developers die on vine, brains,hustle,game sense and grit need not apply. You must leave US, or game over at 14.
