3k plus more if you're A or B team.

Let's face it, FSA does not square up well with CFC or OW. In fact, FSA loses to more local competition (Sporting). They do have nice facilities, but that's all they have.

Its not worth the 3k at u11 or u12, especially not with the coaches FSA has... find a small club with a good coach who cares about developing all players, small roster size... Trust me, you will be better off. The FSA philosophy is all about increasing profits, having 4 teams per age group, win at all costs, they don't care about development, center their focus on the top half of the roster, I could go on and on... Save yourself the money and the headache

True for that age at any mega club. Find local good coaching and see where your player is a year+ from now. Your best training options may not have a big name

If that is true then basically they are running another side business on the side. By booking all those flights in advance they can rack up serious points. They are essentially a travel agency. Smart business people they are! Customers have a choice to walk but very few do.

CFCU is too far. OW is too d'bagy.

you are actually on your own for flights, but many people mistakenly took the cheapest flights (this is a very expensive week to fly to FL) and got non-refundable flights assuming that we would actually play in one of the biggest showcases that they said we would be in.

Very few do indeed. Pack mentality and keeping up with the Joneses factor in.

You obviously don't have a clue, FSA has the best coach in the state for the u12 girls. Worth every penny.
