It's worth a look. That is the CT poster's experience, may be different for you. Having core kids who may have been with the team already isn't unusual. It's called stability.

Default Fc Bucks

There is a core group of players. Some of them are good players. But not all of them. So while stability can be good, when you keep players that don't necessarily belong or aren't the best, you sacrifice the long term success of the team. The core group has made "back room" deals that either they all make it, or they will all leave and go somewhere else. If they leave, the team folds, because there aren't enough players to fill out the team.

Exclamation ?

Why would you continue to stay at a club if you thought backdoor deals were made? And if you left the club why would you bash their club? No one out there is Karley Lloyd let kids be kids and play !

Default Fc Bucks

My kid plays for another local club. Never played for FC Bucks. We considered having her try out for this team because it is the only ECNL club in the area. Continental is the next closest but it is too far. As one of the other people said on here, the soccer world is a small world, and many of the issues that have surfaced on this thread are well known in the local soccer world. Kids should be kids and adults should let them play, which would should include no backroom deals, if that is what is happening here, and coaching by unqualified parents, both examples of adults trying to tip the scales and not let kids be kids.

In most cases, that might apply, but in this case, its a pretty expensive book to buy when all the reviews are saying it is not very good.

But don't buy the goods you see at tryouts. You will get bait-and-switch once you sign the agreement form and send in your first check.

This is where you are 100% wrong. It is FC Bucks. They would garner so much respect in Bucks County and surrounding area if they did the right thing and it got around. There are plenty of talented kids waiting to take those kids places that can do a better job. The problem is that many don't even bother to come out because they know many of these upper echelon teams have had their core together for a few years already and they can not be displaced with on-the-field efforts. Same story all of the world for every sport. Adults ruin it all ... let the kids play and judge them, objectively, on how they perform on the field. It should not be about anything else and to do so is so disingenuous to the kids, to the team, to the club, and to the sport!

You couldn't be more right. It is very similar to what is going on with these celebrities who felt they needed to scam the system to get their kids into college. When adults pull strings behind the scenes thinking they are helping their kids get ahead, all they are doing is creating helpless entitled kids who will struggle to succeed on their own when mommy and daddy aren't there to help.
