    Looking at the schedule, it leads me to a question. Since many of the GU14 (G03) ECNL players are 8th graders and maybe some 7th graders, what are these players supposed to do when ECNL goes dark between the end of November and the end of March (i.e. HS season)? The 9th grade G03's will have HS soccer to attend to.

    For those of you with a 7th or 8th grader on a GU14 ECNL team, has your coach mentioned anything on this topic?

    They can practice with a younger team to get touches, but my player played a bunch (3x per week) of futsal. Kind of hard with the holidays to find a consistent number of players, but they cobbled teams together. Sometimes only played 3 on 3.

    Will this be the same for every U14 squad this year...regardless if it's an ECNL team or not?

    Yes, it's a different percentage for each team, but usually every team will be missing players from Dec-Feb, some into March.

    I don't think we have even one high-schooler on our team...like Booey said - most U14's are 7th or 8th graders.

    I'm sure before the shift caused by the age changes there were high-schoolers on the U14 teams....but now with calendar year teams...not sure if "going dark" for high-school soccer season makes any sense for that age-group?!?

    Good point Generik. Duh on my part. I guess all G03 teams will have the issue of the HS season. When I made my statement above, I was thinking the non-ECNL teams would be getting ready for National or State Cup, but I forgot U14 and above play later in the Winter/Spring than the youngers. I guess this is a question for our coach too.

    Just a question, what 2003 team has 9th graders? These teams are now made up of 7th & 8th graders, why would they go dark?

    Is it just me or does the new website suck in terms of ease of use? The old website although not cutting edge was functional and intuitive. I noticed that it was powered by Total Global Sports. The sure are doing a good job of messing stuff up that was working perfectly fine before.

    They should use whichever company many of the colleges are using because the college websites overall have improved while the ECNL website has gotten worse.

    MAP, I honestly don't remember the ECNL website last year in any great detail, but I find this current version easy to work with. Please keep in mind, my dd is not an ECNL player, so I don't have any interest in the player added features. One thing that I think is really cool is the box score feature. It looks like it is used sparingly, but when it is filled out, I like the insight it provides. Did the old site have the same function?

    Because I hate Beach. Goodness. I just missed her. I have a great deal of respect for her coach Rob Demelo. Why do you care anyway? Is she your kid? Geesh on edge a little?

    For a women who objects to my "top of the box" description of a goal as not getting my facts straight, you seem to be a person who really wants to get facts right (no matter how stupid or innocuous). I'm surprised you didn't thank me for pointing out your mistake.

    And why post this in the ECNL thread? Or point out ECNL players? I believe you were trying to make a point, no?

    And who cares if you have respect for Rob Demelo? It's not relevant. Your spinning.

    Glen you are clearly a dickhead with an axe to grind. I really wasn't trying to make a point but there is a point to be made. Most of the players from SoCal doing anything in college played ECNL. I wish yours good luck because I know she isn't on any of those lists that I posted prior to this. There I made a point.

    Let me guess. Your kid didn't play ECNL, is either on a crappy non ECNL team or plays for a crappy college. Does that make you feel better? We can get into a flame war if you want to. I have plenty of lava ready to spew if that suits you.
