Default RI is a CRAP Soccer State

Rhode Island is crap for soccer. This is because the state population knows very little about the sport. Clubs from Connecticut and Massachusetts view Rhode Island teams as vastly inferior. Rhode Island are a pack of hayseeds.

You are an idiot. RI has much smaller population than those states.

"Hayseeds"???? Perhaps one of the greatest basketball players ever was a hayseed from Indiana.

In terms of knowledge of the game, take a look at soccer viewing ratings, providence market consistently rates higher than Mass and Connecticut.

Does anyone know when pumas tryouts are? Do they have winter tryouts or just June?

Pumas is not a club. They are a fake town team assembled by a couple of dad coaches. So thereís no tryouts. If you know the dad and he likes your kid he puts your kid on the team if there is a spot. Most players on pumas are a combo of NEFC and Surf. They also have a dad coach team called Ambush. Neither team is town or a club. Basically the dads found the best players (in their opinion) in RI made a 2011 team (Ambush) and a 2009-10 team called Pumas. Lots of people mad about it. I could care less. I think the mad ones are feeling left out.

Not true in regard to Ambush. Ambush is 90% a 2011 team that plays in 2009 divisions. The 2 dad's offer their daughter's 2011 club teammates to play for Ambush in the winter. When they need subs for games, they use the 2010 and or 2009 sister's, (no issue there as they play up 2 age groups), of the 2011 girls that are fully rostered on the team. Has nothing to do with thinking someone is the best or if the dad's like you or your kid.

Thanks for the clarification on Ambush FI. But the above is correct about Pumas.
No tryouts for either team.
This is RI baby itís all who you know and Pumas are a bunch of dads who are buddies.
