Definitely would not leave my current team hanging. Just figuring we get a chance to see how they do things and make a contact. In the end it is only 10 year old soccer, from what I read here, it seems a lot of people think U11 is Pre-college scholarship year. What happened to learning the game and having some fun.

This is the time for kids to develop their ball skills. 9-12 years of age. If they don't have the ball skills by then, forget it. They will be left behind. Go to a club that focuses on skills. If the coach spends one second on corner kicks or throw-ins run fast. It is a waste of time and money.

our trainer now spends first 20 minutes on foot skills, then half hour on 1 on 1 or 2 on 1 type drills, then finishes with 4 or 5 on 5 small sided games.

I see a lot of people talking about different leagues like EDP, ECNL, NYCSL,?,?,? .. for the newbie, what league should your team or team you would want your child to be geared to if you and your kid are committed to soccer and think it will be their thing through HS. Ours is LIJSL and it seem more like a big intramural program with dad's as the coaches. While fun for the kids at this age, we don't want to get pigeon holed in the wrong league-team long term. Also what age would you think you need to make the transition from fun local team to the more serious team . What are some educated opinions.

I wouldn't get too hung up on leagues. There are very good and not so good teams in every league. And there are professional coaches and daddy coaches in every league. What you should really concentrate on is finding a specific team that matches what you are specifically looking for.

That is the hard part, finding something. You hear so much crap. What is everyone's opinion of some of the camps that the different leagues run, SUSA, Rough Riders, Red Bulls, ETC. One are they representative of how they run their programs, and what does anyone think of them who has used them?

My son did the winter RDS Redbulls version of futsal. It is a try out program. The level of kids was high and they really dialed the kids on what they were trying to teach. He also did a spring break regular camp, I would pass on that. It was just kids playing, the RDS is focused training.

The top leagues are DA and then ECNL. After that it really doesn't matter.
