Anyone know why so many players from DeAnza Force girls u-16 are looking for other teams? I heard coach is not serious about winning and a bunch of girls on the team are on team due to politics and taking away playing time from serious div 1 players. So several of the top players are looking elsewhere. Could be a great opportunity for other teams to pick up quailty impact players!!

Y.V, What about tryouts? Don't they have tryouts? De Anza's a big club, aren't they pulling in some quality players from other clubs?  Who's replacing the players that are leaving? How many have, or are leaving. I heard that some div 1 players have been out there that can replace some of the old ones. Didn't the coach pull the trigger, or did they just not except an offer? This must suck for the serious players, and parents on the team that want to play at the next level.

No serious players are going to try out. Starters are top notch but subs are lower tear players and level of play drops big time. Coach won't cut and replace with better players - he is not serious about winning..

Next year for a current U16 team is U17, which means high school juniors and seniors.  That's the last year for some and the next-to-last year for the balance.  If a player wants to be on a team with a different attitude toward roster management that's perfectly okay by me, but I find it very difficult to criticize a coach or club that wants to be loyal to players in their last year or two of youth soccer.

What's there to win for a U17 ECNL team in the B-Flight?  A conference title?  Promotion to the A-Flight for the really-who-cares-about-winning-U18 year?  Again, if a player wants to be on a team with a different attitude toward winning that's perfectly okay by me, but I find it very difficult to criticize a coach or club that wants to put development of its currently rostered players ahead of winning at the U17 or U18 age.

Hooked, that's the first time I've seen you giving a team a jab. You are right though, De Anza just dropped out of State Cup, they're at 20/36 of the ECNL B-flight.  What's there to win?  
How many players have they lost? If you lose a few good players, the level of play will diminish, and others may follow. The only problem is, where will they go? Most teams at U16 have 18+ players.  It's almost too late to be looking for a new team. It will be interesting to see how they do in their next events.

Wow!  That wasn't my intent.  I was not suggesting that the team could not win stuff, just that the nature of ECNL minimizes the amount of things that a team can actually win.  The B-Flight characterization was not a comment on the team's quality, but a comment on the fact that only ECNL A-Flight teams are allowed to play for the ECNL championship.  Couple that with the general nature of the U17 year for a serious team (where the focus is largely college recruiting for juniors or college preparation for seniors) and it simply doesn't leave much stuff to make winning that stuff a compelling reason to cut players that may have been on the roster for years.   As I stated above, if a player wants a different situation, that's okay by me.  After all, this is not a right/wrong discussion.  As always, the best situation is one with like-minded players/parents/coach/club.

I was told that the coach released a good defender today. Does anyone know if this true? Why would he be releasing players in mid season?

I heard 1 player went to Lightning but not sure about the rest. Hopefully it doesn't unravel over time as it was a quality team not too long ago.
