Great to hear about Ian Bishop. I can only think of one or two players in the league today that have Bish's ability; one of them is the league MVP Guillermo Barros Schelotto.

Ian Bishop is a very talented player, trainer and coach. He is trying to do great things in Florida.
However, his success will be limited due to the politics at the PARKLAND soccer club. PARKLAND has had a lot of coaches quit and Bishop is spread too thin to be effective.
PARKLAND's board of directors are incompetent and should be disbanded. They micro-manage and smother the coaches to the point of termination. We have seen a lot of great coaches leave because of the "Schneider's" over the years.
The board members will sit on the side line of every game and heckle (and curse) your child if he makes a mistake!
If you are a parent...STAY AWAY FROM PARKLAND. Your child will not improve physically or mentally at PARKLAND.
All of the Parkland parents wish Ian Bishop the best but he has the cards stacked against him at PARKLAND. He would be better off setting up his own independent academy and leave PARKLAND in the dust.
All of us parents would follow him to the end of the earth.

My husband and I were laughing about this. Our son plays for the U13's and they tried to ram a Europe trip down our throats.$3,000 for a week!
So far we have only won one tournament. My husband and I are from Europe where kids are born with soccer balls in the crib and we both agree that the team is not ready. Winning is not everything but why go overseas to get crushed? For the experience? Please! Give the kids more experience then go. Nothing happens over night.

The U12 team has not won a game all season. They got the snot beat out of them.
His coach Manuel does not know how to coach and does not know how to play soccer. This guy Ian has not done a thing. Manuels idea of helping out the team is move them from Divsion 1 to Division 2 and bring in older players and bench the kids who have showed up all the time.
We did so much better last year under another coach. We are moving to football. Enough with Parkland BS.
