Where did I say anywhere in my post that I was talking specifically about Ohio Elite ?

I was talking entirely about the ECNL as a whole.
I know that you Are or Were a CU/Cup coach so we get why you are blinded by your views.

That is why you need to open your eyes, look in the mirror and Scream at what you see !~

3% have a chance at the team, and that's IF they only take DA girls not the best of who's out there. I hear these DA clubs talking about a 2nd DA team per age group too.... What the hell kinda watered down money grab will that be?

Meanwhile 92+% of ECNL girls play College ball and over 85% of them play D1 ball.

Just some interesting math while I wait for my next patient.
If this premise is false, and I believe it will prove to be, then what?

The DA serves the national team's interest, but it is far from the sole purpose. Do you think your "leftovers" that aren't in the 3% aren't going to play in college?

My point is there is already a more than solid path to top level college recruiting.

I've spoken with quite a few coaches at recent showcases and not one has a positive word about US soccer when I asked, and I asked them all that I came in contact with. Where do you think College coaches will continue to build relationships? I'm sure some coaches think US Soccer is great to deal with. I've just not run into any those ladies or gentlemen the last few months.

Maybe I'm wrong. I hope for some of these girls sake I am.

You're not wrong yet. But if history repeats itself, you will be down the line. But you don't need to worry, the caliber of player we are both talking about will attract the scouts and new relationships will form, or some of those coaches will get new jobs at DA clubs. None of this matters for any girl above U12 even less so for those above U14, but the U10s out there... They will set the new bar.

Not from Cup or OE but making her 2nd call up this year to the U15 USGNT. Great player from a great soccer family!

You've stated this before about Sofia and I corrected you at that time as well.

She is playing for the Ambassadors - a Cleveland/Akron area club that plays MRL. Indiana Fire has her rostered as a "discovery player", aka a glorified guest player. She will probably only play a few games for them this season and I highly doubt that she is making the trek from Akron to Indianapolis, a 4 1/2 hour drive, in order to train with the team. I also doubt that Tony, the Wake coach, told her to play with a team in the ECNL for her last club season. Playing a few ECNL games won't make a bit of difference for her.

OK. Or she's going there once a week to train and WAS told that by the Wake coach. Level of competition makes a difference. Always has, always will. You know that.

Empty Head- I doubt any coach would tell a player to make that trek to do that. You are stretching. He may have told her also to stay with the club that developed her as they have done a great job and she is merely helping out another club by guest playing because she is friends with someone on the team... We can keep speculating all day but common sense is not in your favor on this one..

fify

say what you want about oe putting more players into higher level college programs than cup but the facts are that cup, at least recently, has had many more players called into national team camps than oe has and it's not even close. take that, dougley dbag!

I am just imagining what it would be like to all meet at a BW3 and have a few beers. Would have to make sure it wasn't too close to OE, CUP, or KHA though!

KHA is playing the Ambassadors tomorrow in the Blue Chip. Kha has lost a lot of depth due to injuries but also players who have quit soccer since they decided not to play college.

Hold on a minute!!! According to some that have posted here its hard to believe a player that is capable of playing at such a high level including beyond high school that they would quite and also decide not to play in college... LOL Lets be honest a female athlete has a different mind set than a male. Not saying its wrong,right, better, or worse just different in that some that could play at that level decide not to.

I'm not sure if Tony knows his a55 from a hole in the ground! But if I were going to a DI college and I wanted to play at quicker pace, be more aggressive and better technically and tactically I would look for any avenue to increase my skills whether it is playing in the ECNL, against college players or even boys. The only way to get better is to play against better players. You can have better Coaching/Training but if you don't have the experience to push yourself daily in practice or in practice games and bring the work rate, attitude and competitveness you've gained nothing! Playing soccer at a HigH level is demanding, the faster you get there Mentally and Physically increases your chances of success! Go on Rossi and achieve that goal push yourself and make yourself, parents, fans and the Demon Deacons proud!

Yeah I guess they just had enough. At least 3 were pretty good players and I'm sure received offers. Time to get on with their life's work.

By the way I was told Rossi was not playing for the Ambassadors today. So don't the reason or if she is really rostered with them.

It's because the ECNL team she plays for has games out East Sat and Sun and she's with them.

Blue Chip or ECNL games....No brainer

OOOHHH So she steps in to play only in the big matches where college coaches are instead of allowing a member of the team that is at all the training session and ECNL matches be seen... Yeah no brainer the girl she is taking away game time from at the "big" matches should leave and go to a club that appreciates her and want her to play in the "big" games.

Or she's playing in 2 league games with her main team against the best competition possible rather than at a showcase with lesser competition where college coaches are so the girls at Ambassadors who are uncommitted can get more playing time. Not many ECNL U18+ girls who want to play college ball are not signed already, so she's really not hurting anyone by playing with Fire (no pun intended).

The point of her playing with an ECNL team is so she can play the best, to develop into the best. Skipping ECNL match games would be pretty damn counter productive to the whole point of playing with them.

I guess we just see things different. But that's really no surprise.
