    It's unfortunate for club experienced parents and experienced youth players that we have directors and coaches that create such an overly controlled environment and structure. The parents and youth that are here are mostly ignorant and first time club goers blinded by what this club is really offering for your child or you realize this offer and simply except this behavior and controlled culture. If you're looking for team chemistry and lots of other great benefits for your young player this is not the place for you! Jacob Tudela is a coward and will not speak on the phone or answer any soccer related questions about his club or take any constructive feedback or and small suggestions. I feel sorry for his staff and all the players on this team you might have a strong aggressive fast team but that's not going to do anything for the players this only benefits the youth soccer rankings on some website that the club benefits from wins.

    The club coaches at Tudela FC look for aggressive fast and loud players and ignores talented, disciplined, and skilled players. When you go to a try out it looks like the coach is just trying to find the attention demanding noisy puppies and that's it. I heard that one of the coaches was going to try and scout out young talent in inner city areas I'm sure they will be at US5 in norwalk and some other areas trying to lure young aggressive players there way.

    Jacob Tudela has a bad rap with letting go around 70 boy players and scaling his club down to an all girls club and has trouble with funding etc. Not too long ago all the boy players were told to go! He also has a bad rap with many different professional and non professional people in the soccer and futsal community that I'm well connected with.

    People please do not be fooled by the soccer rankings for example his girls 2007 team did win all their 25 total games except for a few and did make it to round of 16 but I can tell you it was done only by aggressive players pushing and fouling other teams. The wins and playing favorites, monkey business, and politic agendas will be the death of this futbol club. The sad thing is once the Recording of Red and Yellow Cards system is introduced these aggressive players will soon find out that they cannot play the same way they have been playing for years and some quit all together.

    "constructive criticism or small suggestions"

    Translated = I asked why my DD is not a starter and coach said she is not ready.

    Another possible translation = My DD is clearly the best scorer but the coach has her at the CB position. When I suggest he is wrong, the coach continues to play her at a position that is beneath her ability.

    CB is one of the most important positions on a strong team.

    CB is not one of the most important positions? I fear I have been misinformed.

    I am not affiliated with Tudela FC, but I know their G2007 team well. My team has played it twice, losing both times. I have seen it play on two other occasions, and I have personally coached some of their players in the past. It is a talented and well-coached team that has earned my respect. Their players may play some hard, aggressive soccer, but they don't play dirty soccer.

    Man, so many things wrong about this rambling mess of a first-time post. You say you are “experienced” but seem surprised that a club soccer DOC isn’t interested in hearing parent “suggestions.” Any experienced club soccer parent knows their job is to drive their player to practice and give them love and support. That’s it. Not to help run the team or club.

    You complain about recruiting aggressive players from the “inner city” (not touching that one!) but then admit later that they actually don’t play dirty, just hard and aggressive. Any experienced club soccer parent knows that players that go hard and aggressive are highly valued and every successful club team I’ve ever seen is full of them. And to suggest that Tudela only cares about aggressive players is ridiculous. His teams spend more time on skills work and creative play than most other clubs in SoCal.

    Tudela’s teams have built a reputation for being well-coached and playing good soccer, as well as providing opportunities to kids from all different socioeconomic backgrounds. I know many people with kids at TFC who are very happy there. You on the other hand sound new to club soccer, naive, and way too involved in your kid’s club soccer experience. I suggest instead of spending your time picking bones with coaches on a public forum, you calm down, find a good fit with a new club, and enjoy watching your daughter play. It will be over before you know it.

    I actually never said they play dirty I said they are aggressive and the players on TFC foul kids by just going aggressive. I saw same kids fouling other kids left and right and there's no red or yellow cards so these kids just continue to foul and nothing happens to them no lesson learned. I'm done and to each is own. I have no more to discuss.

    You sound like one of those parents that if the game is physical and your kid doesn't handle it well thinks every incident is a yellow or red. The game can be physical. Relax.

    @Livinthedream, my kid did not get cut I got my kid cut for asking too many questions that the director did not want to answer and he cannot meet our requirements as a good coach and my kid actually liked the first few practices then she realized the bullshit when they were not being responsive and very quite and secretly putting us on some roster and we never signed any papers or talked about joining.. things were very strange.. so before I could say or do anything she did not want to continue anyhow... Most parents will not ask these questions because they are just too happy to have their kid get picked for some club soccer team and later have a terrible season and experience I know we have seen it and heard about it and have experience. I would personally like to speak with coach get full idea of what to expect before joining any USA Club Soccer the European style clubs seem to have the right idea that I have seen in some cases. First it's an investment in time and money and honestly is usually not worth the money my child has learned more from watching youtube and practicing on her own with passion. @Desert Hound, not the case but I just wish USA Club Soccer would implement cards early before the kids get used to pushing, shoving, pinching, and tripping I believe learning the game the proper way is much better sooner than later. Funny you mention AYSO and we have been on AYSO and Extra so I think in some cases AYSO could benefit kids more than the political agenda USA club soccer system.

    The Coach at the AYSO Extra team you left, is waiting for you to call him back, and I'm sure your DD will have a wonderful experience going back there. Bottom line, Competitive Soccer isn't for every player and parent, Good Luck to you and your daughter.

    CONTROL FREAK, the Alert should be on your blog. How do you put ALERT as the starting word on this post. The first thing I thought was, we have a coach that is abusing players, We have a club team that stole money, A player got severely injured. We all experience good coaches and bad coaches but you don't call them out like this unless it's something that has been significant enough to impact other parents and players. I have news for you, the older they get, the more aggressive you need to play. If the coach is berating kids and making lots of kids cry in the field all the time, then maybe you can warn others.

    Doesn’t “Control Freak” say more about the poster than the DOC in question?

    Basically looks like everyone on this thread just excepts garbage and political agendas and does not question anything pays the $3000 dollars not including gas and all other payments plus believes whatever the coach says or does just turns their cheek and holds their tongue when they question anything.. and is over joyed to be playing on some USA Club Soccer team. Good grief. I'm done. This Alert is the fact that Tudela is a control freak hence my username and what has happened at his club but you all here love you some Tudela so keep on being blinded by silly wins and what you like to call skill work! I don't see it from this club but like I said to each his own!
