typical lm. No clue just hide behind the blog. The GU19 I believe entered as a S.Elite Team from mainly local players and they will Remain in the same level at the Highest that LMSA has. So negative nanny stop the jealousy and give credit where its due. Only thing poor is your choice of words...
Pay attention GU19 only has 3 levels.
Silver Elite, Gold & Premier.
So it's no biggie to be at the bottom is it.

Anyhow they did quite well. Only 2 losses so far.
In a though division. Rookies don't get into soccer at U19.

ok
most of the kids are not from the Rec program. Kids looking for a change from the bigger club name teams. At least the interest is their for our team. But again we are restricted due to Residency Rule. The flip side is develope what you have of course....but there is a platue for most kids. Gold teams players are not from around the block. They travel to be on those teams 20 to 40 minutes. Surrounding cities.Turning away gifted players with potential is hard because they dont live in LM. I understand the rules and principals in place.its a catch 22. Does a PO Box work...lol.

Word gets out the coaching is good.
1.The team is winning
2 The players are developing.
3.There's structure and work ethic.
4.Proper enviroment.
5.The price is low.

Why wouldn't these people want to come.

LMSA growth at the club level is stunted by it's current policies. There are plenty of adjoining programs that have multiple club &/or signature teams wi the same age group. Not every LMSA child will be able to make the jump from rec to club. I think providing the signature option will allow these kids to develop. While you worry of diluting the rec level you don't allow for a viable option for these fringe level kids. This along with your residency rule will make it difficult to sustain this renaissance LMSA is experiencing. Now is the time to be bold. Though I agree w LMSA dad's comments; these are great sell-points, I don't see returning players from other clubs. We need to put ourselves in a position where we can sustain this level of competency. This requires a viable farm system.

Good point but we have city rules and our core program is the larger rec program. The issue isn't do we want to but we just don't have enough kids to support both levels. Maybe we could at a few of the younger ages but by U13 or U14 we won't be able to sustain both teams, so what would you do with those kids that have to go back the the core program. The rules in place are to sustain a complete program with the core program being the most important, i know that most here don't see it that way but we will always cater to the masses.
Any kid should be able to train with the "club" team if they want as long as it doesn't interfer with their "home" team
We have already seen interest from kids that have left I added 2 new players to my team this year and hope to add 3 more next.

The challenge then becomes more daunting. How do we maintain and strive to build on our current success in order to retain our current players and continue to develop & recruit additional players? This is meant as a rhetorical question to open up dialog. My fear is that unless we find a way, this will be a fleeting moment spanning a few short years. I do agree with the idea that we need to focus on supporting the younger age group coaches. We need to provide practical training sessions with their development in mind, and attend some of their team practices during their season. What I'm suggesting is to take them under our wing as mentors & trainers.

We can't lose sight that if we don"t bring them up soon enough, we may take a few steps backwards along the way. Ultimately though the investment will pay off. I just don't want to lose any ground between now and then. I do think we need to make a move now in order to sustain our current progress.

We are looking into how to get our newer coaches/trainer more training
it's a real problem to convince them that we never stop learning and winning is a byproduct of good fundamental training
still see to much focus on long ball training because it was successful in rec but as we move up individual skills become more important
it takes years to develop top player's
