U-14: 5th Place (LOLOLOL)
U-13: 1st Place

The B teams in USYS are even worse and this is with them handpicking every kid they want.

2 or maybe 3 decent teams out of 6 age groups isnt anything special. Don't waste your money. The coaching obviously isnt anything great. All fluff and no substance.
You think PF is bad??? Have a look at clubs like Cedar Stars and SJEB....they would have a tough time in EDP 1st Div. PF is a quality club....

Bunch of crud being tossed around here.

My kid did not play for PF but we went to watch my friend's kid at practices a few yrs ago so those kids are in college and playing.

There were at least 5-6 ynt's on the field at training and that ball was being moved around at wharp speed. I never saw a youth training like it small sided and then full field. And college coaches were watching and they were not local. Apparently they get that a lot.

My friend said her kid enjoyed the training better than some of the games because they were not as challenging.

There is a reason ECNL welcomed them back with open arms.

I was thrilled when a PF I know from uva was drafted by Orlando and her PF uva teammate was working out with nwsl teams too.

We have good clubs in this area. No need to attack each other. A rising tide lifts all boats.

Yeah, looks like a horrible choice when compared to USYS, GA or other ECNL clubs not named PDA.
