    Yes, the 05 ECNL is composed of many new players. At the club, Draluck 05 and Kale 05 teams had played in the top flight over the past few years and when they have played each other, results were competitive (usually a Draluck win). Some of the variables to consider were playing ECNL vrs DA, Kale or Draluck.

    heard it was pressure from US Soccer - not happy that the national team players are staying in ECNL and not on DA team - were told they had to play up at least 2 years.

    Absolutely False regarding Blues Baker 01/02
    Maybe the case with other team bot not this one. US Soccer does not dictate Anything GB does with his teams.

    May not be true but it is something that has been talked about by those connected to this topic.

    So you knew it wasn't true when you posted it? Why so much fake sh*t on these boards now days?

    I never said I knew it wasn't true, just not going to argue with people that are saying it is false. I heard it from a reliable source and believed it to be true because of the movement seen in rosters on various teams. The roster changes supported what I had been told. I don't go around posting fake crap to get people worked up. That is not my style

    I am not talking specifically about Blues - there are other teams, clubs, and players in so cal that might be part of this discussion - sorry I didn't make that clear - I am not the expert on Blues and not saying I am - you don't know what other discussions are happening that are outside of the blues team

    You responded and quoted my comment about blues 01/02 playing in the U19 age group or did I just imagine that. Soccer43 and if you think for one second that after all these years and our dd’s playing against each other and going to national camps together the parents from Blues, Slammers, Surf, Legends and numerous other top clubs don’t speak To eachother you’re sadly mistaken.

    ok, you got me, I give - you are king of youth soccer and know all things. - A reliable source told me something and I just made a comment about that. Your comment was quoted only for the topic as a reference - didn't mean to comment on blues specifically - If I am wrong about it ok - but you sure are defensive about the topic.

    Is it worth it to switch your G03 to Sharks? Lets say you live in San Diego metro area and DA is out of question for your daughter for several reasons. The 03 team struggled last year and continues to this year. Opinions?

    If it is a good fit for your player go for it. Colleges recruit players NOT teams. If you are looking for the exposure, Sharks will still get it at the three showcases this year for that age group.

    Have you watched their practices? Monitored the coach and what he is or isn’t teaching the players?

    Ask yourself (not the Forum), is the coach and the situation something that will benefit your player. Go from there.....

    Player. Team. Coach. League.

    That is the order of importance.

    College coaches are aware of what certain teams have to offer and pay attention to to how the team plays and how much success they have. Simply being DA/ECNL/Super Y/Discovery/Whatever isn’t good enough with how many decent leagues, showcases, and teams there are now.

    Shoot me a message if you want to talk 03 options.

    How do the Baker players/parents feel about moving to the composite age group? My impression from watching the U18/19 age group is that the teams are actually weaker than the U17 age group, because most of the good senior players are in the dedicated U18 bracket and a lot of these clubs have cobbled together composite teams with a bunch of scattered players from other clubs for their final year of club soccer. The scoreboard results don't seem to indicate this move helped the level of competition.

    I must say it is the same in the DA. For those girls that are seniors the pressure is off for mostly everyone. Most girls are committed and though everyone wants to win the pressure has backed off and the girls seem to really just be enjoying playing soccer again like when they were young.
