And then, when the next coach doesn't appreciate your kid's potential greatness, go somewhere else. And on and on and on, until your kid quits.

Nope, I'm an alliance parent. My point is if you are unhappy why come on here and share it? Do what you need to do and move on and be happy your kid finds a better spot. When I read a post like the OP's I immediately think one of two things:

It's CU's "competition" which I guess would be FCP or GDA, tearing them down under the guise of a concerned parent.

Or it's a disgruntled CU parent trying to talk everyone into quitting with him/her.

If number one is right you are pathetic beyond belief. If number two is right and you feel that strongly that this club is terrible, own your opinion and express it directly to the parents on the team. I'm sure you have contact info for them if they were your kid's teammates. Don't hide behind an anonymous chat board. It makes your motives seem suspect.

No thankfully, my kids have had an excellent education with excellent teachers, and we sure do praise the teachers for their hard work, intelligence, fairness, and dedication to the students. Same experience with our jobs too with great managers and wonderful colleagues. We are certainly happy with the education, and our workplaces, but the soccer clubs here in Oregon are truly dysfunctional and toxic, particularly at CU where cronyism and nepotism take precedent over merit. It is too bad that the kids in Oregon cannot experience what really good coaching is. You would expect better coaching at the more expensive clubs, but unfortunately, that is not the case.

Crossfire has never had a reputation for good coaching.

And this forum has never had a reputation for reliable information.

Oh, okay, if you say so, I take back all I said. Sorry Anonymous Unregistered Guest if I offended you.

Fortunately we have factual numbers to back up claims of Crossfires crap ECNL team coaching. These CU are lucky to eek a goal out compared to FC Portlands teams:

Crossfire United

03 ppg .45
02 ppg .82
01 ppg .64
00 ppg .09

FC Portland

03 ppg .82
02 ppg 1.27
01 ppg 1.27
00 ppg 1.55

What's that got to do with crap team coaching? They're playing in a difficult league and surely pushing their limits. If your point, Anonymous Unregistered FC Portland coach, is that FC Portland has more ppg in ECNL, then fine. But any number of factors, other than crap coaching, can contribute to this (although I'm sure FCP's success is all due to extraordinary coaching). Teams from larger population areas in California and Seattle are going to have kids that are overall bigger and faster and more skilled. Does that mean you don't bother playing because you're not gonna win? Maybe, if you've got that kind of personality. But all the top coaches stress it is not about winning, but developing the player. And playing stronger opponents is good, although there is point I'm sure where it is so lopsided it hinders development. But if a team is losing 1-0 or 3-0 (as opposed to regular 8-0 thumpings), the experience may be worth it. I know CO and CU parents who are very content, and I know a couple that are not. I can say the same thing about every club in Oregon. Yeah, there is some crap coaching at some levels of every club, but not because of your PPG correlation. And you know it.

This is what happens when you think the 'League' name is all that matter, results, coaching and quality of players are not relevant, don't you get it, we pay for it and we are content.

Move on, please we beg you!! It's getting old.
