They should just scrimmage with Eastside or Grants Pass. Better competition.
They could take the thorn mobile van to Gresham and park it up on the curb.

Ya gotta know the players in Norcal. Ya gotta know the region. I can't explain the beef to a vegetarian.

That's a bit over the top don't you think. It's not great but not that bad.

Add in Cave Junction as well. Placer was skunked by ECNL 03s last year.

Placer (now a DA) got a severe beat down by ECNL clubs last fall! Burlingame PLEASE. Burlingame has NO athletes! They bought their way into DA is the story in the Bay. Lamorinda is the same.

Even Portland Thornz will have a chance against these manufactured teams!

Who cares. Wins are fun and the travel is free! Thorns Academy girls are going to have the best time!

If you can afford the airline travel costs, lodging & vans, US Club Soccer will let your club in their National league. See; FC P & CU as proof. US Soccer didn't select either of them for the DA.

This. How many here have actually talked to college coaches? They don't care about the letter designation by your players name. If you are a good player, and you contact them they will come to watch you. It doesn't matter that you ecnl/DA team loses or wins.

Yes, the players on the winning team will get noticed first or discovered. Realistically though, the players/parents contact the coaches to have them watch games as you travel to events or cities they will be at. If they like what they see, they invite you to a ID camp for the school.

Alternatively, you can just go to the ID camp for the school on your own by registering. If you are at the should ID camp, you can ask any amount of questions you want.

DA is great if you want to be ID'd at 14 years old. The majority of players don't finalize their college choice until they are 17/18, especially for the academic D3 schools.

Basically, if your daughter is on an A team, ECNL, or DA you have nothing to worry about. Colleges will be interested.
