And CSC has not done NOTHING since RM's TAKEOVER in 2010. Why still there?
My player was LUCKY enough to have Gabe for those 1 hour u8 practices. It was all fast paced FOOT SKILL AND ATTACKING soccer. The average number of touches by individual players at his practices were 500 plus. I haven't seen anything like it since. He had this same group of girls and team for the next 3 to 4 years and incorporated 1 hour practices....as necessary. Also, from that "1-hour practice" team, Gabe will have (5) division 1 players entering college this year including UCLA's #1 recruit for 2019.
1 hour practice sessions are more then appropriate and sufficient for a U8!!!
Looks like you were right. I count 8 new coaches on the surf tryouts website. 6 on the boys side and 2 on the girls side. And 2 current coaches were moved from the girls side to the boys side that I know of. I don't know who left or why and frankly IDGAF but there are a bunch of new coaches at Surf.
Can you post the link to the part of the site with the new coaches list? Or post the list? Can’t seem to find it?? Thanks
go to "join" tab. put in a birthdate and gender and it shows the coaches assigned to the age groups.
current coaches listed under "coaches" tab.
2003 and older age groups not posted yet so not all coaching assignments known yet.
To be fair, I guess it's possible that they added 8 new coaches and that no one left (although Lauren Lowery is now on Encinitas Express website)
Robert Tackaberry (also coaching a girls team)
Perez, Pizarro, and Marwood are all current Surf coaches.
thanks for the info. I see Pizarro on the current coach list but I don't see Perez or Marwood. Maybe I need new glasses!
I heard there is another new north San Diego county club with some sort of surf affiliation - the parent said it's the former matrix club? anyone know if there is any truth in this rumor?
North county FC - not sure about the Surf affiliation but could very well be the case (based on Coaches with Surf coaching experience). I believe San Elijo Matrix will no longer exists.
I looked at their coaching roster - looks like Brian Busch is back from Washington state?
It's just a San Elijo Matrix re-brand, still under the auspices of AYSO. McKell (SMHS girls coach) took over as DOC, and many girls on the HS team feed from San Elijo. Tried to merge with Revolution, but it didn't happen. No affiliation with Surf.
Now that Surf tryouts are over, what are people being told about coaching assignments? Is the coach that is going to be coaching next seasons team the one making the call?
People need to be careful.
DA doesn't have open "tryouts" and season doesn't end until July.
ECNL doesn't end until May.
I don't know why I am hearing about 04 telling people they made a DA or ECNL team.
Also the good old "you can practice with the DA team (lie) or the ECNL team( gasp)"
No it's called the c team
What about girls that were at tryout hoping to make the DA team? Can they be offered a spot this week?
If someone is on a DA team or ECNL team they would not have been at that tryout at all.
The only ones at a tryout would be girls on non affiliated clubs and teams.
Hypothetically a person not on an affiliated team could be added to a DA roster but I believe that conversation would have occurred on day one because it would have been very obvious to that Coach.
As far as ECNL I find it interesting that people are claiming to have been offered spots. I find it interesting because I know of many DA girls looking to go down to an ECNL team and are ethical and adhering to behavior standards and waiting until the season is over. I also assume here could be some ECNL girls who would like to maybe join the DA so they would have that chance. Unless you are a star I can't see an outsider breaking that bubble until the club makes it own internal shuffling which it can't do until July.
There is a lot of talk about ethics and transparency on this board. It would be nice if clubs who had early tryouts let families know what they were trying out for.
If I am wrong please let me know- specifically how can a club offer someone an ECNL spot when their season isn't over and they have a roster of 18? Does this seem kosher ?
Girls from other DA and ECNL teams were at Surf tryouts. A DA parent told me that they could tryout for the ECNL team without breaking DA rules. They said they could practice with both DA and ECNL teams until DA tryouts but at least would be offered a spot on the ECNL team come summer.
I would appreciate knowing the rules and ramifications because we would like to tryout in a year from now but if timing is going to be an issue that could affect which type of team to join this year.
How can surf offer spots right now to this many girls on an ecnl team with a full roster? I hope all the parents in this situation are smart enough to have a Plan B.
Almost every ECNL team has a roster of 20+ players. So if this offer is being made to a few, no big deal. But what are they telling the current ECNL players?
