Seniors in private school can get waivers.

But they arenít supposed to do both at same time even with waiver.

Academy is about sacrificing. You can advance in life if you cut corners.

It is all up to US Soccer and the Thorns Academy.

US Soccer could allow, but the Thorns may not.

Do you think it was US Soccer who said you can only get a waiver if your HS team reached a certain stage in playoffs the previous year? The Thorns made up that rule to accommodate a group of players they needed who were not going to play for them otherwise

thorns donít have to follow the rules. Other clubs donít so no one cares.

It would really help recruiting if they didnít force kids to quit high school sports.

The overall soccer quality in Oregon is middle of the road so weíre not talking big time wherever you go. Just have fun.
Yeah soccer quality in Oregon is middle of the road.

Rumor has it some DA kids are playing high school simultaneously playing DA teams. Is thorns going to allow this?

US Soccer doesnít appear to care what anybody does.

It might really help their recruiting efforts.

Thorns girls got to play high school last year. But those players were really good so they had to cave to their demands.

The only parents that complain about DA players playing high school are the ones who's kids were going to finally get to start and be the star.

Some of those players end up going back to HS soccer and their kid is still not the star.
