    For anyone considering playing as a guest, this is a strong, clearly dedicated group of girls. We played them this past weekend in Irvine and they impressed me.

    The girls have to be dedicated to survive on this team with the screamer. SDSC is a great club that I would highly recommend for all but this coach. If you guest, that means that a player on the team will sit out. He does not borrow because he is low on numbers, he borrows to win. We have played futsal with a lot of girls that have played on his teams. After leaving they all go on to better things.

    The sideline was loud, I agree.

    That kind of thing (screaming, instructing every move) is so commonplace now that I've just got used to it and no longer pay attention to other coaches; I'll only comment on the quality of football that the team plays.

    What tournament were you in or did you drop out? I don’t see your team listed. I was going to ask whether you got kicked out again.

    Sounds like a few butthurt parents out there. Every coach has his/her style, if your kid is a snowflake, this is probably not the team/coach for you.... but I’ll say this, my DD has trained under him and Joe’s a solid coach and calls it like it is. He focuses on the right things and in practice it’s all about development and spends a good amount of time on technical skills before getting into more tactical play. Come game time, it’s time to perform. If your kid is getting yelled at, it’s probably because they’re not doing their job and need to get their act together. At the end of the day, regardless how it’s packaged, it’s valuable feedback and your player can choose to accept or reject it.

    Additionally, i don’t see a coach getting kicked out of a game every now and then a bad thing. It shows passion and that he actually cares and is willing to back up his players. I’d take that over a coach who treats the team like just a paycheck and doesn’t give a rats ass if they win or lose.

    That said, to be clear, i know I’m making it sound like he’s a total hardass, but he’s not. He’s actually a nice guy who simply sets expectations where they should be and strive towards. He deserves more respect than what he’s getting here.

    Hey, isn't the opinion of the butthurt parents that he's a bad coach simply "valuable feedback"?

    If I were a kid, I don't think I would want to play for a coach with this description. Sounds great to have youth coach/role model getting kicked out of games, where yelling at players is "valuable feedback", the approach is you better get your sh$t together, and the coach cannot field a full team at a tournament. That sounds like a fantastic guesting opportunity. But I do love that the post is rated *Friendly*.

    But don't get mad-- respect me because I have passion.

    Never had my kid try out for one of his teams for this very reason. I can get way more detailed if you like? His style is kickball and rough play. He is bad for soccer and I cannot fanthom why SDSC tolerates him. He joysticks even his older teams, not shutting up for more than 10 seconds ever. If his player gets beat he screams tackle and encourages his larger players to attempt to run through the opponents to play kickball. All of this makes it more likely that someone is going to get seriously hurt.

    Is anything I am saying not accurate Joe, Adidas, JoJo?

    i suppose it depends what kind of parent you are... if you’re the “everyone should get a trophy/my kids can never do wrong/kickball is ok as long as they have fun/God forbid my kids feelings are hurt” types - which there are a LOT of parents like these at SDSC, then yeah Coach Joe probably isn’t the right coach for you.

    Again, nothing against the parents because for the most part, they’re all so “everything’s hunky Dory, all a happy family”, they’re incredibly cool to be around... but most aren’t serious about soccer - have very low expectations, and most of these girls will never play college if they even play high school. SDSC is less about soccer than community. Which in all honesty isn’t a bad thing - it serves a huge need and allows families to simply enjoy being a part of the game and an excuse to hang out with each other. in fact it’s one of the largest clubs in San Diego. But that’s where the disconnect is - Joe’s actually trying to teach them to play good soccer and challenge them to the next level. Some girls are on board and actually want to work at it, but the rest, it’s just a social hour for them. I’ve witnessed it. The reason he has to recruit for a tournament isn’t because he’s a bad coach, it’s the lack of commitment from players and parents - they just don’t give a shit and are either on vacation or playing other sports - so half the kids don’t show up to practice until late July. Soccer just isn’t a priority.

    The fact that Joe’s teams have actually been ranked fairly decently despite all this says something.

    You should have quit while you were behind. Your comments say a lot and is just another reason not to play for him. The nerve to say that the A teams at SDSC are not serious. A lot of players even on DA teams take long family vacations in the summer. He enters way too many tournaments and if he allowed a break somewhere I bet families would try to work around it. But he enters way too many tournaments and that is the only reason his teams are ranked ok on Gotsoccer.

    The reason we see so many former players at Futsal is because after playing kickball for Joe they feel that they are behind in foot skills. Watch his teams and you will see at most 3 passes. Kickball is his game.

    LOL - you like using that phrase, don't you? Trolling Skill Level = 2. But let's see who's really behind here...

    Check out the rankings by year... Here's the link. SDSC is in one of the hottest youth soccer regions and arguably the largest club in San Diego - yet has ZERO teams ranked in the top 25 Nationally with only 5 teams across all age groups ranked in the top 100... but wait for it.... guess who coaches those ranked teams? Joe Montoya (07 until this year and 06) and Pete Stogsdill - Pete is a great coach and took over Joe's 07 team this year. But yeah, Joe's one of only two coaches that has ranked teams and all these parents are complaining because he yells at his girls. Oh yeah, no DA, no ECNL but still largest club in San Diego and you're gonna tell me these kids and parents are serious? The nerve.

    Uh huh... let's go back to the numbers, see link here. They played a whopping 7 tournaments each season from May until State Cup the past two years. I know, I know, Monkey... numbers and facts don't matter as much as how it feels.

    LOL - so much idiocy with this statement, where to even begin. sorry to break it to you, but if your foot skills suck, you're not going to learn them at your weekly spring futsal game. Foot skills are learned through repetition. The reason their foot skills suck is because they don't practice outside of practice - can't blame the coach on that one.

    Anyhow... Monkey, next time maybe try to check your facts before you embarrass yourself.... I mean only if you feel like it... You know, what, I'll even just give you a winner trophy for your post, ok? does that make you feel better?

    Why is it dumb to wonder if SDSC is actually the biggest club in the county? I heard when Carlsbad Lightning and Carlsbad Wave combined into Carlsbad United (now LAGSD) they had over 4000 players.

    I am pretty sure they are the biggest if you include the rec numbers in that 4000. I think SDSC is around 3200 including those but decided to end the growth on the competitive side as their is a lack of field space and PUSD and their new $15 an hour for a 20x20 space made the cost too much to overcome. It also becomes too much to manage IMO. As far as the bashing, I don't get it. Why come on here and do it? Does it make you feel better? I find it funny that for every post about how much they like a coach are 50 about how much they suck. We want to blame US soccer for its ills, in reality it is the parents. Yes, I am one of those also....

    I don't remember bashing any of the SDSC coaches. Having looked at their coach list this year, I was surprised to see Beto Villela has moved from Surf. DD had him years ago and we had a good experience with him.
