BOCA  -Really big forward..bump and run style of play this is Boca's 2nd team.  1st team did not make top 32
Diablo  -very aggresive team should do well
FCEG Navy--takes bracket  .. agreed
UC Premier TOPS - bump and run ball. but a lot of success in tournaments, NorCal and league play



RE: Boca.  This is the Boca Land Park Silver "bravehearts" team.  Not really second obviously, just different.  It's parent coached, I believe.  Not to be confused with Boca "proper" (coached by boca staff) Boca Natomas Silver or Boca Sacramento Silver

We try to challenge our girls every chance we can.We normally just play Elite teams or play  U 12 .I would like  to see them finish in the top 8 this year ,we  finished 11th in the red last year.With all that said as long as they keep it simple and have a love for the game they should have good results.I think most of us forget they are  little girls  just doing what they love.  


 Ajax Premier is playing Gold in Nor Cal, if you want a challenge why are you not in Premier. I noticed your team played in gold for Cal Cup as well, doesnt seem like a much of a challenge.

Boca Bravehearts, formally SSA Bravehearts, now are known as Boca Silver, yes parent coached but have been together for a few years, long balls to "Flash", pretty good goalie and defender.  

UC Tops was able to beat Mustang Legends at their tournament, not sure if guest players were involved? I do know they made the brackets in their favor to get to the final.

We fight to change every tourney .If our Elte team plays in the same tourney we get bumped down,In fall league we asked to be moved up but the powers that be said no.Dont get me wrong if it sounds like i am bragging ,i came off wrong.We play a very simple game,most of our players are very small but have a lot of heart.

Boca Silver - pretty much one player carries the team. Typical boot ball up to her on the right side and she does the rest. Very fast and strong player.  Player is more dangerous than Placer Red striker.

No comment of if this team plays "boot ball" or not however I find it amusing that everyone always 'accuses' everyone else of playing 'boot ball' while their team / club focuses on the 'soccer fundamentals', passing and footskills. I think the plain truth of the matter is that the vast majority of the teams out there are working like heck to teach strong skills and a passing game however when faced with a very challenging game and a totally jammed up midfield most teams will try the through ball / longer clearances route. That and through balls and longer clearances can be important tools to stretch the game and provide more space for the players (especially the mids) to get the passing game going as well.

Of course, you point out sound soccer match strategies, anyone that knows soccer would agree with your statement(s). I was just pointing out that the team has such a player. Instead of saying "typical" I should have said that the team has a player, which tends to dictate their style of play. If she gets 90% of the goals, you wanna get her the ball . . .  

The big test will be the U12 transition where team tactics and (stronger) player fundamentals make up the structure relating to building the successful teams.

Winning is a double-edged sword . . .

Well said....     What i have seen ,(and forgive me if i am wrong) coaches will have is defenders smash the ball forward and in most cases has a fast striker to get the job done.They then have only one hope and that is ,will my forward out run the other teams defenders.11 v 11 changes the game.

I'd agree with your analysis regarding many of the GU11 teams I have seen. Your team will play the Boca Silver team on NOV 17, should be interesting. Larchmont (refs) has a reputation of being Boca's 9th player on the field.

Next season, when the Elite and Premier teams combine, I expect to see a very strong team, indeed. I'm not sure any other Club, at least in R6, is better prepared for U12, having two such strong pool of players to combine. In addition, with your Club doing a good job of already implementing a sound universal system of play at the Club-level, that would make the transition that much smoother.  

BTW, how many of the MFC Benfica kids went to the Elite team? I heard 3.
