    Heat FC U15 what do we have to do for SoCal to respect US? Lead the conference the 1st half of the season (which we are).

    Are you seriously asking or just griping? If you are asking a serious question you may want to ask around about how other teams feel about the style of play and the attitude the parents seem to bring with them. It may be a little eye opening.

    Your right. Respect is more than just a win or loss record.

    Care to explain more? How do the other teams feel about them?

    My DD does not play for this team, however, I would say that ALL teams (and parents) bring an attitude with them. Its the nature of the league. I'd love to hear your take on what sets this team apart?

    I thought that the Heat U14 team last year was pretty good...and this year at U15 they have done well. Always a tough team.

    What I have been surprised at is how weak the Blues and Slammers U15 teams look. LAFC Slammers have done well.

    My daughter (an '05) played against the Heat '05 ECNL team in Man City. The Heat team has speed and talent, and a VERY physical style of play. Hard and late tackles, shirt pulling, elbows, etc... Our girls understand the game we are playing as the refs aren't calling it tight and start playing the same style back. Based on how the Heat team parent's reacted you would have thought we we're the dirtiest team they ever played. No, just playing the same style of soccer back. I asked around a little after the game; several parents have had interactions with Heat teams - it appears that this is the style of play regardless of age group.

    If the Heat are going to play a very physical style of play, don't act surprised when teams start to give it back. Howling at the refs for calls for the exact same play your kid did a moment ago doesn't really make sense.

    lol im sorry your game didn't go well, but thats not enough to say that others think badly of an entire group of girls. most of the heat teams weren't even at Man city, so who did you talk to? we played arsenal last weekend, and it was a tough, physical game. that does not make me go back and say that I don't respect arsenal at all because of that game.
    the 05s are a very good team, but like all girls perhaps they have a game where they get carried away. idk, but lets all admit that every team shows up with a chip on their shoulder.

    seriously?! ok y'all are killing me. y'all are such victims because the Heat parents are soooooo mean. how many so cal parents on this board act like the world revolves around Orange County, and they are so unhappy about having to travel to lowly phoenix and Vegas to play against "lesser" talent? and if you don't believe that then scroll back through this message board.

    good luck to everyone next weekend in phoenix.

    Can't speak to their 05 team but their 00 team at ManCity tourney 2017 was obnoxious. Their coach (the DOC) got kicked out of their 2nd game (verbally assaulting the refs). During our game the players and parents pulled all the same crap that everyone else has already mentioned: cheap shots, telling our parents to f-off, etc. Stay classy, Las Vegas!

    Im a AZ parent. I know we have some awful parents but i find Vegas parents the worst. I'm sure many find AZ parents the worst. I think we can agree Utah parents are probably the nicest

    The '05s are a good team, I acknowledged that. I am not bitter because we lost, the better team that day won. I gave a specific example of a very physical style of play and parents that seemed to expect us to lie down for them. Now you have 2 other posters mentioning the '00, '01 & '02 age groups; at what point do you think maybe there is a trend? The Heat parents aren't mean - some of them are just mouthy.

    PS I have no problem travelling for my kid's soccer, that is what we signed up for.

    The problem is you all always underestimate the teams from Nevada. I know the U15 (04) and U14(05) sidelines are typically quiet and get along with most other sidelines as well as the . Style of play? Both teams have one hell of a defense. It’s certainly not boom ball or foul from behind. The girls aren’t pushovers. If you dish it they will give it back. And everyone always seems to think their little Mia is getting fouled. @Hitman6813 was just pointing the fact that Nevada teams are underestimated . SoCal in their random rankings, albeit humorous, always puts Nevada in the middle or last. The results speak otherwise. The teams will compete with our VERY small soccer population pool. Isn’t that what this is about?

    There’s plenty of asshole parents and coaches in Orange County.
    Take a look at the scdsl expulsions in 04. Flight 1 and 2. Nobody should be surprised by which coaches have gotten tossed this year.

    Just my 2 cents - My daughter's team has played the Heat 04 team multiple times. They play hard and are very physical, but I haven't observed anything I would consider dirty or out of bounds. Their parents that we interacted with were cool, too.

    You must be talking about another Heat FC club because the U15 Heat FC parents from VEGAS are a wonderful peaceful group of parents

    You must have missed the part where I said U15, that’s 2004 age group if you’re new to this. Since you’re an 05’ how can you comment on a a team and parents you know nothing about. You just painted a whole club with one paint brush because you had a bad experience with ONE team in the club. The 05’s and the 04’s are two DIFFERENT teams with two different group of players and parents.

    We’re the worst, lol. We’re no different than any other state/parents. PS have you ever played a team/club from Hawaii?
