Congrats. Didn't know Barca had a U50 team. Double X kits?

Unregistered BTW...the above post is more in reference to the Barca Academy DA in Arizona.

Unregistered The DA rules today very much favor clubs and not players. There is so little opportunity for players to "look" at other clubs without getting black-listed for doing so. Really wish there was an absolute open season for players to tryout for new clubs. Would hold clubs to a higher standard level to be sure they can retain their players...good training facilities, quality coaches, quality players, good solid comprehensive curriculum...the right location. Right now, players are kindof stuck if things arent up to standard at their club, or they just don't click with the coach. Also, there should be a more standardized tryout and signing period. A lot like USYS has always done as state organizations set dates. Right now some DA clubs hold tryouts even before the end of the year DA tournaments. Like what player would commit to a new club when they haven't even played in the end of the year showcase or tournament. And likely, if they did stick it out, I'm sure most coaches without character would try to bench those players at the end of the year tournament....get the drift....allow more freedom for the benefit of the players. If you read the DA rules, it even requires current coaches to be part of the decision for players to move to another club...hmm, like that would be a good thing.

It means you beat low-level town teams that are likely coached by dads. There's nothing wrong with low-level town teams that are coached by dads, but they don't usually do much bragging.
