No one comes to your games. "Three people and a dog" per the thorns coach.
It's important to not worry about attendance at games and instead be concerned about focusing on soccer. If you go to the NWSL you will have games where barely anyone attends and that's ok.

You need not be concerned for them.

Relax. Let it go.

They will see. Just let them see our GDA teams rise to the top and the ECNL will FOLD under our rule. Club teams also; we will never play a club team. ECNL sometimes plays club teams from older teams and loses. We will not put ourselves in the position to play down at that level. We are elite and connected directly to NWSL and US Soccer. We have set up SURF cup so we are playing ONLY real DA teams and NO wannabes allowed. God Bless the DA and our benefactors and beneficiaries. A League of Our Own.

Three people and a dog? How lonely.

This is true. Everyone has to learn to live with the consequences of their choices. It's not the end of the world.

Always movement of players, no matter the academy or club. Living with the consequences or learning from the experience...glass empty or glass full.

Representing your school or community in rivalry games or playoffs or state championships is all exciting and creates long lasting memories but it is distracting from getting better.
