Team Boca

What a JOKE: Companies actually donate money to this Soccer Club: The # 2 or 3 guy in charge FAT GARY is a known & self pro claimed Atheist …. A good teacher for our kids? Well he can not play Soccer but he falls on the ground hard when he tries to quick a ball. This team is judged by money and politics: Go Delray or SABR

right, because teenagers are encouraged not to go to college, but rather try to be on an olympic team at age 18. prom, graduation, and actual friends mean nothing. we should deffinately give up our lives for soccer. which we basically do. 7 practices and 5-6 games a week. your right. my team sucks at soccer and thats why we havent lost a game.

Katie: Let me tell you something, you should not use your name ( my name is not Brian ) and then tell that you are on Team Boca : It took me 1 minute to find your name on team Boca and then less then that to find your address. Thank GOD I am not some sicko that would come after you… You should be smarter, there are many sick people out there and I would not want to see any kid get hurt.
I have a friend whose Daughter played on the White team for 3 years and he did not have the 1,200 fee to play and he admits he was critical towards the lack of coaching his child received. The team his child played on maybe won 4 of 20 games (I think his concerns were proven to be justified) He is a good friend of mine and my child played with his for several years…Well this year his kid did not make the team. 3 reasons given: Lack of skills (many as well as I thought this kid was a top player) the lack of money and parent input… Is this Nazi Germany? You may be too young to understand but I hope you grow up to be a proponent to what is right… And Careful with what you post…PLEASE , I am sure your parents love you and would not want anything to happen to you… Good luck in soccer and life

Way to go Katie (whoever you are)!
I was looking for an article on the Holiday tournament and came across these comments.
I think this Brian guy is a bit sketchy looking up your name and address. Sounds like a real creep ! I am glad you were smart enough to use a different name.
I don't agree with your opinions but, good for you for standing up for what you believe. Go get em and good luck in soccer this season.

The truth is all travel teams have their good and bad proponents. Yes, some of the coaches are better than others but...they do not as a rule yell and scream at the kids in the middle of a game as do most of the coaches at other clubs. It is very political, as is everything, including school, work, other sports,life in general, but the kids in traveling clubs are better soccer players than kids who are only on Rec teams, and that is the goal. Parents strive for that goal in all sports, including volleyball, track, football, baseball, gymnastics etc. Team Boca actually is LESS costly then some of the other soccer clubs. They do learn better fundamentals then Rec player, simply because of the quality of coaches. Most of them do play on their highschool teams. Most of the coaches are either All American college players, college coaches, National Team Players or International Team Players. Gary is actually very good with teaching concepts with most of the kids. I personally do not know or care about his religious affiliation, it has no bearing on soccer since as a rule the kids play soccer on the field not Bible study. As for winning. Well, some teams are better than others. Team Boca dominates in Highschool players, yet some of the other teams may not do as well. Talent is not always equal in ages. Some kids who are more talented may be cut. It is not always skill. Sometimes it is attitude. Prima Donna at 14 or 15 is a problem. One child's (or parents) negative attitude can bring a whole team down. Of course, those are always the ones who they and their friends bad mouth the school, the club, the team that they left. It is of course, always someone else's fault. The kid who is currently a part of this club or any other is the only one that is an expert on that club because ultimately it is about whether the kids who are a PART of enjoy it. If they are happy, then it is as it should be. People who don't have a child currently in the program are really irrelavant. Your friend's kid. Oh Please.

You are correct in many things that you write and I do agree with you. The Kids that play travel practice about 6 months a year as opposed to the Rec kids that do for about 3 months a year. You are correct and appear to know much as a soccer Mom. I will defer from advising or bragging about my Soccer background. I have been to Brazil and several other so called 3rd world countries . Most of the world’s greatest Soccer players did not have the Advantage of playing for an expensive travel team. The OH please condescending comment was uncalled for and 100 % incorrect.
PS: I know of one kid that played Rec Soccer and has the option of getting a free ride to several Ivy League colleges: Brown & Harvard being 2 of them.
When Politics superseded the best interest of the development of a talented kid that is developing in Soccer I just see that as wrong. No I do not expect Soccer to be compared to Bible study, but the next time you watch a World cup keep an eye out for all the players that bless them self’s on the field. Just maybe there is a higher authority then Team Boca ?

The Oh Please comment merely was telling someone without a child currently involved in a travel program to butt out. If it felt condescending it was, unless of course, you have a child currently in a program, then I apologize, although you seem to know very little about the program. It is like people who don't have kids are always the world's best experts on child rearing. As for your soccer experience, great, become a coach and make a difference, instead of complaining about what is wrong with the system. People who complain are a dime a dozen, people who make the effort to change things are priceless. Most likely the complaining your friend did about the club is what got his amazingly talented child dropped. Adults have a way of taking the fun out things when they try to impose their own ambitions and views on kid's. You are also right about the world's greatest soccer players did not need to play for an expensive travel team. Why would they? My family is from Europe. The street was their travel team. Other countries have soccer in their blood. They live and breathe it. Children play it with their families from the time they can crawl. Unfortunately in the US it is technically a new sport. Most parents never played it and do not understand it. Kids don't instinctively understand it. I do not consider it a benefit to have expensive travel teams(although Team Boca has yet to be even close to the $1200 range, are you sure your "friend" was on Team Boca? Yet even if it was $1200 that is less when divided over the 10 month season (6 months season? are you sure it is Team Boca you are talking about?) then pratically any other activity most children can do. Gymnastics ($160 to $270 a month) Volleyball ($500) Horseback Riding ($300 and up) Diving ($150). In any case,"expensive" travel teams, are merely a neccessity to compete with what is natural in other countries. The child that went Ivy League after ONLY PLAYING REC. is certainly not the norm, in fact protegee or miracle child is probably more to the point. The Majority of Rec coaches are usually parents who have never played soccer and volunteer for the position. They are frequently required to only have a background check and fingerprinting. They then teach the kids to the best of their abilities, which usually entails books and DVD's from the local library. The kids then proceed to follow the ball around like ducks, some are talented and some are woefully untalented. The coach yells from the side line something to the effect of Get the Ball! Pass! They play rec until they are 13 to 14. Ivy league from that is quite the feat. As for the players who upholds God on the field, I think that is wonderful, American football players do it too, basketball players, etc. It is always good to praise God for your gifts however, it would be nice if their moral values actually coincided with their actions. I am quite sure most of them have more than a couple of skeletons in the closet which have nothing to do with Christian values. The fact is this is America. Everyone should have the choice to worship or not. Soccer clubs unless they are church affiliates such as Upward soccer, are not ministries of any religion and should not be treated as such.
As for the soccer Mom comment. Condescending and not exactly correct, since I love watching my children in everything they do, soccer being one of many things. I was a college level athlete as was my husband, we don't need to live through our kids. As long as our kids like an activity we support them with the best options that are available. If they don't want to continue, we are fine with that as well. We don't need our kids to be the best, only do their best and love doing it and be happy, well-adjusted kids.

every club has these problems. take out the team boca name and insert wellington, west pines, fc united, delray, boynton or any other and you will find a percentage of parents that feel the same way. go to another club and see for yourself or dont act like you know everything about it

so funny...the grass is never greener on the other side. the fact of the matter is FL soccer is horrible. We dont even have an MLS team because of the corruption and big egos.

You either get the big shot, who played pro for a year or two, who thinks he is going to open a new soccer academy or you get players who jump from winning to team to winning team every season without building any core foundations.

Too many coaches, should not be coaches. Period. They lack the consistency, maturity and patience.

The other 90% of the problems stem from parents who dont know how to keep their mouths shut. You know who you are, the parent who puts your kid on a pedestal and says all the others suck. The parent who thinks their kid can do no wrong. Dont forget about the parents who smack down the coaches and know so much more than them but dont have the guts to step up and coach and have never coached anything in their life other then their dog.

The other problem you have with American soccer is the size. ODP thinks that big kids make great players. ODP picks the biggest kids they can find and ignores many regular sized talented players. Soccer is not about size. That is why it is a great sport. Soccer is about playing the ball and finesse.

Listed above are just a few reasons why soccer continues to struggle in the US. Most of the coaches are brain dead and intimidated by lunatic parents. FL soccer, is very much like the FL economy, its full of fraud and b.s.

If you want your child to do well in soccer ~ get them out of Florida ASAP

We had a horrible experience with Team Boca. My son played U9. Horrible coaches there. The kids didn't improve anything for the whole season. They lost all their games big time.
Not just they couldn't prepare the kids for their games but the coaches and management are rude, unintelligent, low class people who has no idea how to provide service. I never saw anything like that. We are trying Boca United for next season. I heard very good things about them from parents. I did not know any parents from Team Boca boys devision so unfortunately we tried it out and wasted $600 and one season. DO NOT EVERY MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE!!!!!!
