With the second year of the alliance, apparently expanding to older age groups for the boys side too, curious what the respective clubs tryouts, etc. would look like this year?
The DA boys from SSA that have aged out, it's likely already decided who CF will want to take next season on their DA roster.
For the ECNL girls, we have already seen what form that has taken - CF has provided an entire ECNL slot, more or less.
For the older SSA boys, this is off the SSA web site (https://clubs.bluesombrero.com/Default.aspx?tabid=347705):
"17U, 19U Concorde (BOYS) ECNL Tryouts: Through a partnership with Concorde Fire, players interested in playing on the Boy's ECNL program's teams in the 17U and 19U age groups are invited to attend tryouts hosted by SSA."
Really, how in the heck will this older boys' tryouts for ECNL be handled? Will CF come to SSA fields with their ECNL players and hold a scrimmage? If so, then CF would basically bring their boys that are already selected to play ECNL on their side (duh!). And, would they really take an SSA player?

I assume you are asking from the SSA perspective?
Regarding one part with the CF Premier ECNL, will this continue with the 07's? If so, will this have an impact on the NPL long term? In the 2 age groups where SSA had both, their NPL girls are bottom of the table, telling me that basically like every other club they don't have the depth to field 2 high level teams concurrently. The SCCL teams in these age group are mid-table, so not bad there. Are they going to be able to field an SCCL-P team capable of hanging with the current Athena A teams from the rest of the big 6?
I'd be curious to hear from parents on these NPL teams.

To keep another thread from derailing, my post is to see what tryouts hosted by SSA for CF ECNL will look like, rather than the aftershock of possibly SSA NPL players and entire SSA NPL teams (in the case last year with the girls) playing ECNL under Concorde.

The future of this will depend on our the financials work out -- will SSA get $ when back when players register with/through concorde etc? Concorde seems to be in the habit of carrying huge rosters in the older DA age groups, I hope this just doesn't continue that trend. Its probably also time if he hasn't yet, for Ken to stop coaching DA. They need to hire/bring in a real coach.

GKR: SCCL spots from Club to P2 advertised in the forum makes me wonder how strong those teams will be.

slickdaddy96: Guest20, well first of all since SSA didn't hold tryouts (which was dumb) parents took kids to AFC/MOBA to survey the other clubs and get a free workout. I know that is why I did it for my own kid.

slickdaddy96: Guest20, Also since some age groups may not have enough kids for teams @ SSA Coweta, I believe some parents may be hedging their bets to make sure their kids has a spot somewhere.They got rid of Josh Villalobos down there & a majority loved him....

slickdaddy96: ...some are pretty pissed of how he was treated by SSA and are going elsewhere due to it. That is my opinion. Opinions do vary though. Doesn't really matter most MOBA teams were almost full, they should consider multiple teams in some age groups
Jun 1, 2020 7:02:44 GMT -5
slickdaddy96: Most AFC teams looked to be full as well, so honestly not very many places for SSA Coweta kids to fall. Most will have to be back or quit playing. AFC/MOBA play GA Soccer so there is going to be a step down in competition anyway....

slickdaddy96: I have actually heard of a lot of MOBA/AFC kids in different age groups contact SSA for team info as well due to wanting to be in SCCL over the sinking ship of GA Soccer Athena/Classic.

onestepbeyond: Sorry slickdaddy96 but SSA below ECNL and DA is garbage. Coweta absolute joke. Both MOBA and AFC have far better coaches, better teams and better fields.

slickdaddy96: Well considering the majority of their DA kids are now playing on the NPL team, and the NPL team was not to shabby, and most of them will go down to SCCL-C. I think they will be fine and are far from garbage. Coweta isn't a joke just seems like it is an..

slickdaddy96: afterthought for SSA. Maybe this new director will clean it up.

hot momma: Good or bad? My daughter was told by an ECNL club that she would be placed on the U19 Composite team but she would likely get some play time on the top U19 team.

futbalatl: What is wrong with people ranking and comparing 08 girls teams? This is insane.

Futsal Gawdess: How bored/meaningless is your life that u dedicate time assessing, comparing & rating 11/12 year old girls, especially considering they move from 9v9 to 11v11 so all commentary is conjecture at best. In 6-8 months, the results will say it all 🙄

Futsal Gawdess: While we're at it, ranking the ECNL boys teams is also a fool's errand 🙄

Goalkeeper Dad: That not what I was hearing from the some of the coaches and players, but it sounds like you have a better insight to that team then I do. Guess we will find out once the rosters are posted. Either way I heard they will be good. Those team were good last
