You have to understand it's a battle over market share first and foremost. If a club can lure away 1 or 2 solid players ( not all are bad) and 1-2 check writing bench warmers they're ahead. There just isn't enough talent to go around so the clubs are trying to get whoever they can.

Itís not disgruntled parents itís desperate trainers.

Actually makes a lot of sense. I always wondered why someone would attack a club, knowing that it would just come back at them...

SUSA is the robber baron of Long Island soccer!

I can't imagine any parent has this much time on their hands to constantly keep posting about how much they love LISC and to talk to GB and MF-that screams young college kid interning and monitoring the soccer forums.

But that was also a period of great artistic and scientific growth. Here it's just rot and decline.

Newsflash, a partnership with Sachem won't improve the situation either.
1 Atletico girl is on the team this year. The rest went elsewhere.

It's unlikely many will and it will be tough to attract new talent given how watered down local soccer is. The U15s are at least doing ok (4-3-5 +2GD). LISC lost the older two teams due to poor performance last year, leaving girls in those prime recruiting years scrambling. They have one U16 that plays EDP. Next year the need to field a combined U16/17 team. If the roster is only this year's U15s they will be behind other teams that have older players. Most U15s are currently freshmen in HS and next year they'd be more likely to be impact players on their HS teams. Will they want to stay?
