Sir, you truly are ignorant. You must have average students in your house. Academic merit is good for 4 years and can be stacked with athletic support at the school he’ll commit to this coming fall.

The person insulting the entire sport of women's/girl's soccer calling someone ignorant. Pot, meet kettle. Hope your son respects women more than you do. Probably not, though. Apple usually doesn't fall far from the tree.

Highly likely that the "son" will soon be female.

Inflated fees. Inflated coach egos.

How is the soccer? Given the huge range and number of teams, the quality of soccer has to vary tremendously. Like any other massive club, the top tier teams are the main focus and I would accept that thereafter will vary dramatically.

My kids have played on the top teams of other clubs. GPS has provided the best training and coaching...at least at the top tier level. It has been a great balance.

Inflated fees? No more than any of the other clubs.
Inflated egos? Not that we have seen. Certainly less than the other two clubs.

There are plenty of reasons for someone not to like a club. It usually is that your child didn't make a team or was successful on that team. Certainly one could argue that we found more success with GPS and our kids were not thriving with the other clubs.

The only real conclusion is that there is a balance to achieve and that each child is going to be different. That reality will affect how one sees each team, coach, and club.

Definitely another bored GPS coach! I heard Juventus took one of their top Director of Coaches and a few other coaches followed him.

Is this a result of GPS not minding their own business?

Or is it that GPS has excellent coaches and other clubs want to mirror their success

Our experience with GPS NPL teams was good and coaches (GM and CVW) are excellent. Some non-parent regularly trolls this site with a constant GPS is overpriced mantra. GPS costs same as any other big club. Of course mileage will vary as you move down the pyramid, same as everywhere else.
