I have to agree with Hooked. There are several talented kids on many CN teams that get over looked because they may not be on the "top" team, but are talented. Even this past summer and fall, some CN girls were invited to the National camp(s), so I'm surprised none of their names showed up on this current invitation.

For the 97s the past couple years CS has sent 18 girls to the Idaho camp and 17 have made the Regional Pool.  Once again, I think they have a very talented group of girls but 17 out of 18 seems an exaggeration.  I guess it helps that the 97 Regional coach is from CS as well as the main Regional coach.  

I think our 97s are better this year than last, but still not on the same zip code as CS, but our 96s are a different story.  The 96s team is great team and fun to watch.

It's almost the same exact kids on the 97 team from last year, so I don't know why it's so much better. Or is it because your daughter didn't go to Arizona last year? That must be why they're so much better. Did they do better against Washington? Last year, they beat Utah, how did they do this year? When it came to playing the true competition this year, CN didn't fare to well, being outscored 7-2.

First of all its very pathetic for you to bring up my daughter or any other kid into the conversation.  If your kid didn't make the team this year don't blame mine for it.  

Second) I said "I think the 97s are better this year than last".  I never said that they were "so much better".  That's my opinion, and if you don't agree it doesn't hurt my feelings, and it should hurt yours either.  Also, by team I meant the whole state pool, all 30 players and I believe  there are between 13-14 new players this year.  I will say that almost 50% is not "almost the same exact kids from last year" as you put it.  I didn't keep track of the girls that traveled to Phoenix for the past two years, but it's hard for me to believe that it was almost the same exact kids with all the changes on the roster.  

Third) if you are comparing this year's team vs last year's based on their scores during a 4 day tournament than I have nothing to say because I didn't watch a single game this year or last.  I was basing my own opinion on what I have seen at tryouts and trainings compared to what I saw last year.  I also think the coaches this year are better than last.  I know the team that traveled to Phoenix did well even though a few key players couldn't go because of school, injuries or other reasons, including the striker from MVLA, who is probably the 97s best striker, and two very good players from Mustang (center mid and center back).

Guess I hit a nerve if asking a simple question makes me pathetic. Sorry, my daughter did not try out for ODP.

I was not commenting on the pool, just the girls rostered for Arizona, and, yes, "almost" the same from last year. The striker from MVLA will make a big difference if she goes to Idaho, as she is the best striker for the 97 age group in CN, by far.

"almost" the same team from last year  Unless you call 50% "almost" the same team, it was not the same team.  Did you attend either tournament?  If you were not at the games, you have no idea how the games went and what the scores meant.  Last year's team was a great group of girls, but were missing a few key positions.  The coaches were good, but IMO this coach was more effective.  This year's team, another great group of girls, key positions filled better, a much better formation, last year they ran a 3, 4, 3....this year a 4, 3, 3 and the girls played a lot more cohesive.  
Utah scored on a pk, we missed many opportunities.  We looked strong in out next two games, the New Mexico coach said that we had a strong team.  The Washington game, they were definitely a strong team, but two of their goals came off of very unfortunate mistakes.  That game should have been a 1-1 tie.
So-cal, well they are so-cal, stacked!  They have tryouts twice a year and train more.  They keep a core group of girls from year to year.  However, we were the only team to put a goal in on them!  The girls played well and never stopped fighting in that game.
They have a lot to be proud of!

I'm almost certain that I saw your daughter at the first tryout for returning players. I guess I'm mistaken just as you are regarding the rosters been the same as last year. I also counted 9 of the 18 as new players. I'm not going to make this into an argument. Best of luck to your daughter at PDP.

Final tryout for ODP this weekend.  Anyone know why they invited so my girls back for a 1.5 hour  tryout? Hard to believe they have not made their minds up already.

I know that State ODP wil play other states in Vegas in January.  Also noticed PDP has a state team and  they will play in Vegas the following weekend.  I noticed some girls are on both lists..........  Who is  PDP playing?

PDP seems to be doing a decent job regionally but when it come to state who are they playing?  Other PDP state teams?  

SO now we have PDP ECNL, Nor cal PDP and ODP.  Geez do we have enough?
