Don't forget to include how many goals AJS from capital will have.
I don't predict individual stats.

This is not just matter of opinion!
There are three boys that I saw at TA "tryouts" that did not make the team and are making a huge impact at their respective DA's. It is unfortunate that they did not make the cut back in May, but their is no doubt that they are better than some of the boys on the team.

11-12 year old boys in Oregon who play local club soccer. Let them enjoy their youth. Playing Soccer will not be any professional endeavor for any of them. This is Oregon.

What blew up on them is 2 things. 1) Oregon got 05 DA and 2) several players (3/4 of which would be starters)and their families declined "invitations" and decided to stay at their previous clubs. TA and Fernando then made the mistake of going back to the ADF and westside well to fill the holes with players that do not deserve to be there over some other more deserving players that did go to "tryouts".- results show this to be true and when you leave kids off the game roster and only play reserves 10 minutes a game at this age it just gets worse...

Do you get it now or do I need to draw pictures with crayons for you?
There are four Westside kids at TA. (That's excluding at least three others who used to play at Westside, but then moved to other clubs before joining TA, including a couple of the ADF kids). Three of them are doing very well, and getting major minutes. One appears to be getting bench minutes.

As I don't know which kids tried out and didn't make the team, I can't offer an opinion on whether or not those cuts were correct, obviously wrong, or difficult choices that can be argued either way. But most of the WT kids that are there are doing successfully.

Maybe it's "Oregon" because of this attitude?

It's possible to do this better while also providing a pathway for kids who want to enjoy club soccer. Maybe it's not the same exact pathway, but there's no reason they can't coexist and even benefit one another.

A handful yes, but not 3/4 of the team. I am not on board with all of what goes on with TA at this age group, but let's keep it in real terms and not over dramatize it.
That was meant to say 3 or 4 of those that declined would be starters, my bad it was not made clear enough. I should have known better with all the paste eaters that read these posts....

It's not that "it's Oregon", unless that's how you equate that to the way Timbers run their academy. Based on what I have seen from this age group you could create a team that would compete and beat most or all of the Washington clubs on a regular basis. If you cut off the bottom half of the current TA roster and REPLACED them with a couple wash timbers, a couple crossfire, a couple fc and 1 from CFC and I am sure a couple kids who stayed with OYSA teams you would have incredible depth and upgraded starters as at least 3 or 4 of these would be starters. I realize geography and a few other issues are the reasons for some of these kids choosing to stay away and it's not all on TA, but their history and antics definitely caused some of these kids to stay away...

It's a state named 'Oregon' littered with pay to play clubs that are far too many, with way too many acronym driven leagues and competitions. Private individual training as the seedy underbelly, that does nothing to build the knowledge and acumen on how to play this 'game'. Pay to learn how to kick and dribble a soccer ball? That's hilarious.

All we have created is multiple pathways to the poorhouse or in most cases nowhere.

Enjoy the ride it's short and comes to an end real quick.
