We enjoy watching the club and signature kids level. They are the kids with the LMSA jerseys correct? A few of these teams coaches from girls teams have mentioned a few harder teams to come. We like to stick around and support those teams.specially when we know they are at the top of their bracket. Do they hold open tryouts?

After having finally seen all the teams my pick for the snow cone derby is GU11. They have played the most consistent no matter the opponent.

BU13 is good but I have seen them lose concentration when pressured from decent teams. Don't think they can handle the pressure from a good team. Hope I'm wrong.

GU14 relies to much on long ball and big girls to force the issue.

GU15 another solid team, but now comes the gauntlet of good teams to play.

Sig is Rec. Not real high quality competitive soccer.

Yeah they play soccer but Rec is for fun. Sure there are a couple of good players per team, but being a big fish in a little pond means nothing except to the Moms and Dads on those teams.

When Sig players/teams get the ability, talent or courage to move up to real competitive club soccer then we'll talk about them.

(Remember all the present Sig teams choose NOT to jump to the big show. They wanted to stay in the minor leagues.

For now let the Purple Ponies or the Mean Green Machines have fun where they are.

Ok Bruce Arenas. You say these teams choose not to take the leap of faith to club level? How do you know if these teams decided to play signature because this was a new team playing together for the first time as a group. Apparently you must be a FIFA administrator or ESPN Soccer specialist to judge all the signature teams? Have you seen all the signature teams play? Because you are judging them like they aren't capable of playing at next level?

I believe the Snow cone will be for BU 13....to be last to loose a game. They play Corinthians who are also undefeated this Saturday. First test of concentration, key point with these boys, they dont give up goals. last two seasons they have been the least scored on or second least scored on team. I hear the coach will go the season in central bracket trying to better less then seven goals all season long. They have played three games and only given up one goal. But this weekend the team they play make goals.....good challenge Good Test..

explosion field layout now is running east to west so much bigger then before but still a poor field, not really a home field advantage because you can't pass without the ball bouncing everywhere need to play over the top and run on to

As a trainer, train your team to play in all conditions: a good soccer player should be able to play in the scorching heat, rain, mud, turf fields, manicured fields, and yesss less than par quality fields. Teach them to watch the bounce, consider the weather, timing, etc. I've heard of teams that dribble the ball up hiking hills, at the beach...whatever it takes, train your girls to play in all conditions instead of complaining of the majority of the fields that they will have to play on.

Davis hs a point.Aolian is a difficult field....xplosion teams have an advantage there. Field size factor mainly. In La Paz Bolivia...fifa qualifiers even Argentina , Brasil cant win easily.....that home field advantage at its best.

Really dude. You don't like me do you, no problem, I lost nothing, no value just a bunch of hate are you a hater is that what you teach, feel sorry for those around you, are we your only friends?
BTW I do teach the spin of the ball but I can't teach bad bounces just how to react to them. You know that because you are my training sessions right, oh no you aren't you are just trying to impress people with your typing skill's
After I walk the field before every game we talk about it, we talk about the field and the style that we have to play because of the field, we can play different styles, what to look and where the mud puddles are :(. even at San Bernardino we beat a tier 2 team at spring cup because of a bad bounce it goes both ways.
If you want to add some value work with them on fixing the field no more sour grapes. If it sounded like I was complaining sorry to make you feel bad I was touting our fields and how lucky we are to have them. making comment on how the other fields we play on are not anywhere as good as what we have. We are just happy to be able play.
We were doing so good before the hater felt left out

Yes Corinthians is also undefeated they are the leading goal scorers of the bracket, They will be playing Boys U13 who has aloud the least goals of the bracket. First place up for grab this weekend. Home game for LMSA, Behringer home field advantage...lol
I like defense over offense on this one, We win 3 to 0.

When they really get to the real next level they'll get the attention their Mom/Dad wants.
Because then they will be playing,(in theory) quality teams with good players in all positions. Obviously that's not always true. I have seen many Sig and Rec All-Star teams get wiped off the field their first year in club.

Sig teams only have about 2 or 3 really decent club potential players. The rest are just Rec players trying to make it to the big show. LMSA Sig teams MAY have a few more quality players than most Sig teams but winning in Rec is still winning in Rec. It proves nothing except that you or your team is better than other Rec teams.

After your Sig season try to keep your core team together, bulk up with a few impact players. Play in several Club Open tournaments,
then request to the LMSA board to move into Club in the Spring.

You'll know if your Sig team is ready for the big show then.

Hey, just showing you how, if you want little Brittany or Shawn to be recognized for their soccer accomplishments, put them where their accomplishments are worthy of mentioning and mean something.

I was once in the same boat as you. When my little Lady Bugs went undefeated in Regional play and won a U8 Championship I couldn't understand why it wasn't in the paper either.

the progression to the top will never end it seems like. As i move up im seeing the need for better players is required? from Rec to signature...from signature to Bronze....Bronze to silver.......and so on. The need for your better players to stay is essential and to develope a few that have it left in them...the rest have to be discarded. plain and simple. from here you need to replace with equaly skilled new players......or your degressing. and the higher brackets are out of your grasp.....releasing players is never easy. Its usualy the parents that help cheer and support the team.
so do we stay as a team and be a happy family and be average or do we open the doors to talent and the unkown possible luggage.

sad but true,
Poachers are always on the proul. Kids leave because of possible better training, play time, loosing consistently, financial issues, and as all will see talented players seek the talented clubs.....the "name" brand.
If LMSA coaching does not do their work in recruiting , developing, and dropping. they will miss the boat. These better teams loose the better players soon. the better the player the bigger his parents team expectations....

The wishing well is all dried up for u12 and up.
All those talented kids that left pre coast times will not be returning. Local kids! Residents! Now what? develope what the well has to offer. Or lighten up on the residency Rule.
questio;
will LMSA keep tabs on minumum playing time in Coast?
reasoning to have weaker players develop, reality lighten your roster .......thats why we need some signature teams to back up the coast teams for the future. A and B team.....
