Rage fields a right off the freeway  and sometimes they practice in Livermore at Lasmpositas college.  The current u11 and u12 teams are very good and worth looking at.


We are looking to move to the tri-valley from Modesto and would like to know some rough estimates of what it costs to play a season at some of the surrounding clubs in this age group. I do understand that there are lots of variables, but an estimate is fine.

Mustang?
Rage?
Azuri?
Fusion?

Well, this past year for Mustang U11 it was roughly $1900 for the team fee (which was pretty all-inlcusive--we weren't hit up for any other payments for team gear, social events or parties, team gifts, coach's gift, manager's gift etc.), another $250 for registration, another $250 for uniforms, sweats, etc., and then travel costs.  Depending on which team, those costs inlcuded trips to Seattle (all three teams), San Diego, Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara . . .

Did your child play club ball in Modesto?  Mustang would be my choice .Not that the other clubs are not great but I like Mustangs style of play more.

Yes my child plays comp ball in Modesto, and yes I agree Mustang has a great team. Thanks TVSoccer for the info. I always thought it was more expensive to play for Mustang, but that price is not bad considering.

Rage is about the same but maybe more expensive.  But with the added commute and time it may end up the same.  Can't go wrong with either team as both are very strong.

Don't forget to add in about $50/week during the season in additional personal training you must get for your DD to keep up with the Joneses.

Just kidding.  I was a little shocked to hear from more than one person at other clubs that this is Mustang's reputation!  During the season there are at least two team trainings a week, and for certain parts of the season, an additional session of age-group conditioning.  With games and tournaments on the weekend, there really isn't any time for additional training!

That's the perception, isn't it? I think I detect sarcasm in your post and rightfully so. Your daughter should be getting all she needs from her club's regular training regimen.

I recall some years ago overhearing Rage's head trainer, Philippe Blin, talking to a group of youngers to whom he said something to the effect of: "Trainer? Why would you have another trainer? Do you know who your best trainer is? YOU!"

He went on to explain that juggling, playing wall ball, and just playing soccer with friends and family was more valuable than additional paid training. And what's more it's free!

More amusement than sarcasm.  Sometimes it is just funny to hear what others think of our club.  In reality, it is a great group of kids who love playing soccer, a great group of coaches who love their jobs, and a great group of parents (with the requisite crazy parent sprinkled here and there, like in most clubs).

For whatever reason, this age group is particularly deep for Mustang.  At U11 we had three D1 teams and four D3 teams, and a number of the players on the D3 teams could have played D1 but chose not to because of other commitments.  It will be fun to see what happens when they go to the big field.

Leagues seem to give you access to State tournaments, other than that what are the benefits? Specifically, benefits that can't be gained another way,
