5 north to 57 north to Imperial Highway. Left on Imperial
Heard something similar: AR + two G02 Flight 1 teams/coaches to Blues. ECNL teams to Strikers FC North.
I also heard AR moving to Florida! I am shocked he would team up with TB
I heard something about the DOC going to FL. Maybe that's where that came from.
AR was not a DOC at Strikers OC. I hear DOC is moving to FL.
Yep. That's what I was saying. Seems the rumor about the DOC's future got mixed up with AR's somehow.
So - OC Strikers lives on, AR to Blues with a couple of teams and the DOC to Florida (that would be HB?). That is a lot of moving parts - socal soccer world at its "best"
I wonder why just a few select G02 teams with AR to Blues? Was he even coaching those teams?
Question is did he take TP with him? She was the coach of the 02s.
Both G02 teams/coaches but apparently with TP continuing to coach her current ECNL teams too.
So how ecnl? Bakers aren’t rolling over for that team.
TP's ECNL teams are going to Strikers FC North not Blues.
I don't know about "going". Strikers North got ECNL, however it doesn't mean teams from OC will go up North for training. I also doubt that they will be able to keep any fields they had in OC. My guess will be that some players will go and some will start looking for a local teams.
Are you saying Strikers OC lost their fields all together or Striker North won't retain/use the fields that were being used by the ECNL team.
Agreed it will be another hear of shuffling teams for the 2002 girls. Really feel bad for the groups in this age range - from Jan.1 birth year change 2 years ago & DA addition last year the 2001 - 2003 range has had nothing but chaos. Lucky are the ones who have a team that is stable & they are happy with....
The 2002 really hasn’t had any challenges. They stayed ECNL or some went DA during age change and now they are set up in their sophomore/junior year for success as the top age group of their DA pairing (02-03).
You only underwent chaos as an 02 with AR, and frankly thats the case under AR for many years regardless of US soccer changes.
The big question is what happens to his 03 squad? They aren’t going to strikers north.
Aren’t there at least two other ECNL clubs who train either at the same facilities or within a few miles away that these girls could go to?
Understand uncertainty around the 01/03 age groups since AR is listed as head coach. But seems unlikely that 02 teams break up given the success TP has achieved in a short time. From what I hear, more likely she keeps her teams together in ECNL, perhaps picks up a few more, and the shield on the uniform ...
Agree, I don't want to use bad words on here but we were immensely effected. Without saying it it's a Sh## sho##
thats the infamous question
so, both AR and TP listed as blue and gold coaches on their website. anyone know what happened to their teams?
Heard TP will remain with her teams (ECNLs to Strikers North/G02 Flight 1 to Blues). Not sure about AR but seems likely he continues to coach at least his '01 ECNL team under a similar arrangement. But that's pure speculation.
