Default Girls 03 Rankings

Feels a little young to start this thread, but since there has already been a good amount of discussion of one of these teams, maybe it is time to broaden the discussion.

Has Revolution played OYSA-champs BSC at this age? Who are the other strong teams in OPL at this age?

Are you kidding? I was looking at coaches for an old club of ours and they listed the teams they are coaching and some coaches had teams as young as 08. It's really weird to see 06, 07 and 08 listed under coaches. But yes, in some parts of the country, clubs put together five and six year old teams.

Lastplanet already has the stats.

Pacific, THUSC (OPL) BSC, Westside TS (OYSA). The only caveat in the ranking comes in the class of opponent played in fall and winter. Those 2 OPL teams played NWCL and PacNW Winter Showcase in Seattle and took some extra losses against tough competition while BSC and TS remained unscathed in OYSA Fall/Spring. So the rankings might be a little skewed towards BSC/TS because of that. But still its really close amongst those teams.

Post tryouts and with some summer tournaments coming up its going to get settled as I am sure there will be some head to head matchups. If they combine leagues its really going to be good.

Some clubs? Don't all clubs have teams starting at kindergarten? Our youngest did the spring league this year and it seemed like a lot of clubs participated, and its hilarious!

The LastPlanet rankings don't include most of the state cup games but are otherwise up-to-date for WA/OR/ID teams playing games in WA/OR/ID. Other than G01, they tend not to include games played outside of those 3 states - not impossible to add but we are only 2 people so we tend to focus more on the age groups that interest us most

Thank you. Curious to see some editorial outside of the Lastplanet rankings. I am not sure that teams are hurt overall playing NWCL or other tough tournaments in those rankings (sure they get some losses, but strength of schedule helps).

Think the DA leagues in general are doing a good job . . . once a kid has exposure to that finding it very hard to go back to rec (although know some who have gone back, it is the exception).

I felt a little uneasy starting this thread . . . feel really uneasy constantly seeing the Revolution thread popping up in this forum . . . folks are putting time and energy into the youngsters so thought it made sense to broader the discussion.

As for how young is too young - don't know, but California and Washington have u10 state cups. I'm not sure we have the perfect balance here in the metro area between age-appropriate and competitiveness.

It's far beyond anything you see local here. They put together teams and train at night two nights per week and play in leagues year round - fall and spring outdoor, winter indoor and futsal and during breaks, they play in tournaments.

Why feel uneasy? 03's now U12. It is no different than when the 00,01,02 threads started. U12 is when you start seeing some separation and formation of the teams coming up. It only seems weird because most of the nutballs on this thread are veterans of the 01 and 00 and 02s and are afraid that the 03's thread is going to steal their thunder. Welcome all new 03 nutballs!!!

The G01 thread is over 3 years old now so you're a year late starting this one...

I would add Washington Timbers to that as well. Looks like they are in NWCL and hanging in there in 3rd in OYSA.
