    Cali you are starting to grow on me. If nothing else you are consistent and I can appreciate that. Striker, Eagles, Arsenal and the others seem to have done a good job getting players committed too. I know players that matriculated from those clubs that had or are having excellent college careers! One of the players doing arguably the best from the 2016 recruiting class is a Striker's player that is starting for UCLA! Your daughters old club! Seems to be working fine.

    Hey I agree that having more options for our young women is awesome in San Diego and of all the clubs outside of Surf, Carlsbad is clearly the most deserving. I have always like Mike Duggan and Carl Higham does an excellent job also.

    I do not believe ECNL was a power grab as they were going into uncharted waters at the time of its conception and really had no competition. They wanted to raise the tide for all women and at the time the model was strictly team based instead of the ECNL's club based model. No worries. If the DA helps more girls get additional value then great. If it is designed to only help the super elite (.01%) then make it a true residential academy. Good luck to your daughter this weekend.

    So that website where you posted your DD's highlight video and that extensive list of her soccer activities on her ECNL profile page weren't worth it? Or maybe your DD's emails refer coaches back to those sites if schools were interested?

    The old ECNL profile page was FREE! As for the Godaddy website, I think it cost only $39.99. Better than paying $19.99 a month from 8th grade to her Sophomore year for a recruiting site (yes she was emailing college coaches as an 8th grader). That is better than paying $720 for 3 years.

    As for it being worth it, I would say the Godaddy website wasn't needed and why it's cancelled. A simple cut and paste of her highlight video link attached to her email was more effective and why I posted....keep it simple is all that's needed!

    I have extensive experience in sales and marketing and thought providing a link to a website would be like leaving a brochure behind after a client appointment. I probably over thought the recruiting process though.

    I agree that it is shitty that I'm supposed to pay to post my DD accomplishments when last year it was free. Also, I can't seem to even add her jersey number anywhere? Major fail on the part of ECNL

    As a side note, I get that banter is par for the course here, but seriously it's getting a little redundant at this point when the same people argue day in and day out....

    Our club pays for and uses college fit finder. Has great utility (video upload, references, academics, college search tools, etc). Does anyone have an opinion on whether it's better to use total global sports just because that's the site that's attached to the ECNL website (i.e. do the college coaches/scouts prefer it over others)? Trying to decide between the two though "free" is always a good price.

    Ok another question: has anyone figured out how to add your kid's jersey number and position to the site? My DD is wrong, and i've been on TGS for like 15 minutes and I can't change it?

    Also, you can't click on any other kids? This is not helpful at all.

    Your team manager or club registrar can update that info. From what I've seen players/parents do not have the ability to make the changes you mentioned. This new website is atrocious on so many levels.

    The biggest red flag is WHO owns TGS & when all the 5 star reviews are from their wives or ex-club administrators wives- even worse, their own youth directors

    Just say it, don't beat around the bush. Quit being the coach that just sits a kid and hopes that they get the message.

    So according to Corporation Wiki, TGS is owned by Steven Patterson. He is the President for Strikers FC and TGS per this website: https://www.corporationwiki.com/California/Yorba-Linda/steven-patterson/140286504.aspx

    If you go to the State of CA Business search page, you will find that the Agent for Service for TGS is Steven Patterson: https://businesssearch.sos.ca.gov

    From the same State of CA website, you can find the Statement of Information which lists the names of the corporate officers and names/addresses of its directors - click on pdf #2. I recognize the name of the director on line 12, but not the others.
