Congrats to Beach on getting the big wins and the bid to Regionals!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but there will not be Regionals for this age group, 2005 U12's or National Cup Regionals.
I'd kinda agree with that. But personal reasons more so I'd say. Both teams couldn't really find a rhythm.
I would agree as well... our coach has been working more and more on possession but sometimes they do revert to kick ball when playing these better teams... like legends and today with la galaxy sb. We also have such varying levels of ability on our team... I don't really see that as much with other teams. I think perhaps we have too many clubs in a small area.
Agreed. But there will definitely be some movement after national cup. It will be interesting.
Yes, U12 (05s) CRL winner goes to Far West Regionals-- so does 05 Cal South National Cup winner. If they win Regionals though, they would not go on to National Championships
Are you sure??? The rest of the United States and Nor Cal. is playing 9v9 on the small fields for this age group. I believe So Cal is the only Region in the US that decided to play 11v11.
It says so in the CRL rules:
6.01 US Youth Soccer Region IV Championships Wild Cards
In the U-12, U-13, U-14, 15, U-16, U-17 and U-18 age groups, one Wild Card slot to the US Youth Soccer Region IV Far West Regional Championships will be awarded to Cal South Premier Division teams, and one to the Cal North Division teams.
But who knows? In any case-- congratulations to Beach for winning CRL!!!
Why would this article suggest Surf won? I know it's a rag for sure but this is weird ?
And I think the photo for the 06 age group is the C team. Alternative facts, it's the new norm!
WOW. Alternative facts for sure! How embarrassing that Surf would allow that kind of misinformation to go out... and as for @goalnation, all they had to do was look on the CRL website to verify the "Actual" facts.
No offense to the wonderful players on the Surf team. It's one of the best age group teams out there... so... why?
Did they win EGSL or maybe their group in SCDSL and maybe Goalnation just got the league wrong? If not, someone has some egg on their face.....
I have watched Beach play this weekend and recently this year and was very surprised to see their style of play and remembered this video from CRL last year. They made it looks so easy against one of the best teams in the age group (Surf) but what has happened? I understand they've been winning recently but it seems like they've changed styles and even against the lesser teams. I understand they may have lost two players but surely two players doesn't affect a group that dramatically? It would be interesting to get an inside point of view. Is Winning > Development??
What team does your daughter plays for? It almost seems that you have created a new handle to post this, but everything is possible ... In any case, since I know that my daughter is developing as well as any player in this age group, I think that your question is pointless at best. You seem to be one of those soccer snob parents that after watching a couple of videos of Barcelona or Spain playing, and influenced by the group thinking of other snob parents in your team, confuses player development with style of play.
Apologies, It wasn't meant to come across as a disrespectful comment in any way. I was extremely impressed with beach last year, and by posting this video and commenting about the possession, it seemed like you were too! And rightly so! I was just curious about the change in style.
I actually prefer to read why Ajax's Academy has been so successful is DEVELOPING players. Here's a quote that may question some of the things you post on this forum. The question would be is US Soccer, The boys DA Clubs, and all the professional academies in Europe snobs as well for taking this developmental approach?
IMO, losing two players, especially those 2, that play in the middle and control the tempo of the game, changes a lot for that team. They won't be the same team going forward.
Sorry "John", you were the one calling teams out. The problem is that I feel like my kids are developing, but you insist that they are not. Please let me take advantage of your expertise on soccer development, could you tell me what I should do to develop a player of this type:
If you have additional advise on how to work with players playing up in age, please share, I will follow your instructions to improve the game of my kids. I lived all my life on the other side of the pond, playing around the clock, but I guess I did not pay enough attention.
Thanks a lot in advance!
