Interesting their ranking shows a different twist

Please note: These rankings DO NOT give points for state, regional, or national titles. The purpose of these rankings is to rank clubs in the fulfillment of their main goal of developing players for the next level.  

Pleasanton appears to lead all others in Norcal with Mustang suprisingly behind.

If college rosters are the standard they should only count juniors and seniors....  or just not count freshman.

I like the idea of tracking how a player continues after their freshman year, but it would be difficult for this ranking to incorporate that?  For instance, a college senior soccer player is unlikely to be selected in a way that could be tracked.  Just as in the ranking would have a hard time letting us know if a particular U20 player did not advance to one of the higher teams, it would equally difficult to follow a freshman year player that needed to make a choice on grades or soccer their jr or sr year.  Either way I think the rankings reflect 'showcasing' of players as well as developing.

Interesting! I had never seen this before and virtually felt forced to rely on anecdotal information on post youth success from the club press releases. I agree that some of these results are very surprising. Could they be the result of a growing focus on team development at some clubs (ie Mustang which plays outstanding team soccer even at the younger ages) vs teams allowing or encouraging individual creativity? The US takes a knock in world soccer for players that are not creative, is this a sign of that do you think?

GRYPHONS SC 98/99/00 Girls ( and 03 Boys) have OPEN tryouts, if you want to learn from a great coach, contact Coach Ricardo via email and come to a few practices to see if you like it. He is an outstanding coach, many of his players are ODP & PDP (STATE and Regional), ID2, NTC, or now play ECNL.  Email him for more info..  RGNMarta23@aol.com
