Does anyone know what the potential ramifications of her current team could be and what is everyone's opinion on a mid-season move like this?
if she's a training player now and nothing is guaranteed there can't be any serious ramifications from the previous club because she was merely a training player in the first place.

It's rare that practice only players end up happy - they want to play! Sometimes they will eventually make the squad, but if they weren't strong enough to make it in the first place, what are the odds they'll get much playing time once on the team? Probably not good. Sounds like your new option is a much better fit. Don't worry about the current one but don't be a di*k when you leave either - small state means burnt bridges can sometimes cost you down the road. They'll understand the situation and if they don't it was never the place for your daughter anyway.

No way Yankee has training players, they barely have enough players to field teams.

I agree with this. Try your best not to burn bridges on the way out the door... No bashing, etc. I would be upfront with them and just say that your daughter is not happy being a practice player only. There is no way they won't understand that . You have to do what is right for your daughter.

Your daughter should remain in her training position until the end of the spring and please make sure you are paid in full. After that, you must give the club the first right of refusal. We can squeeze in a 21st player on the roster and everything will be fine. She's developing well here.

Why would you need to tell someone not to burn their bridges on the way out? That likely never even would have crossed their mind.

I think you got some reasonable advice here but you should know that club coaches are all over this board. By spelling out the particulars you are no longer sneaking up on anyone. This board can be helpful to understand the soccer landscape but try to avoid using this way if you change clubs.

Here's the deal, your daughter is almost certainly on a cjsa roster at her current club even though she's a training player. Clubs at u12 and under can use what's called a developmental roster which allows a larger number of players. They would include your daughter for insurance purposes. You'll need to get a release from the current club, which her being a training player they arent likely to object. You may be on the hook for the rest of your financial obligation. If handled properly that might be able to be worked out.

It sounds like a better opportunity for your child. Good luck

Some people can just be jerks and like leaving scorched earth. From the tone of the OP's post it doesn't sound likely - and if it's explained as it simply is all should be fine. But it's easy to leave on bad terms, especially if a bill hasn't been paid. In a small state it's easy enough to run into coaches, managers, owners, not far down the road.

I don't know if the same is true for training players but on my kid's club, they wont give a rostered player a waiver to roster somewhere else unless you have paid your fees in full.
