UPDATED-NEW DAY/TIME--Solar '03 Grado D1 LH Open practices

Post by #luvtowatchherplay on 15/05/17, 09:51 am

Beginning the week of May 22, we will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-7:30 pm and most Saturdays (during try outs) at the Solar Training Facility in Allen located at 121 & Stacy in Allen.   

Please make sure to text our coach or manager if you are interested in your daughter coming to one of our sessions.

Coach-Charles Grado 214-566-0447

Team Manager-Jennifer Pivnick 214-454-5106

Solar Grado '03 just completed an undefeated season, 19-0, in LH D2 scoring 75 goals and allowing only 3 goals against.  We earned our promotion to LH D1 and are looking to add a few key players.  The majority of our players have played together since 2nd grade and for Charles Grado since 4th grade. While some players were offered the opportunity to tryout and move up to Composite/ECNL/DA, they have collectively chosen to stay and continue to play with this team and for this coach. This team respects and likes their coach and each other.  If you are looking for a true development minded coach who experiences very low turnover on all of his team's each year, this team might be a good fit for your DD.

DA should water down some D1 teams. To what degree?Nobody knows. What we do know is that Grado's team will remain together and I'd guess that they probably get stronger. We could see Grado's 03's run the table in D1 and if they can pull it off they should be praised for the accomplishment.

"Run the table" and you wonder why people bash those who boast?

Just lost to DTS and tied DT Red.

Good enough to run the table but not one player is trying out for ECNL, DA, or CL?

Good enough to run the table and the coach isn't going to suggest strongly that his best players move onto an ECNL or DA team that will give them more exposure that a "watered down D1"?

Or is the plan simply to dual roster everyone?

I appreciate the comments on the post, as it keeps this post at the top of the thread!  Let's keep it going..what can I say that will keep people posting...let's see..We will finish in the top of D1 next year and much like we did in DGIC, hold our own against ECNL teams when presented with opportunities to play them.  That should do it! Discuss.....

I'm not trying to bash the team, full respect to what they've accomplished. But I simply don't understand how on one hand there's boasting about sticking with ECNL teams yet on the other nobody is urging girls with ECNL talent to move up and get more exposure and competition. I fully understand loyalty to a coach that has a good reputation and obviously does a good job. However like my previous post shouldn't a D1 team in a club with DA, ECNL, and Composite be a stepping stone?

I'll keep it going for you.. Because keeping the post at the top doesn't necessarily equate to more players. How about setting up a scrimmage with LPE. We need to prep for Regionals in NC. Its all good and fun..

What's not to understand?  Our girls love each other and their coach and they want to play together. Just because you (and many others) think the players who were offered the opportunity to take that next step, should do it, means nothing to them. My daughter made the decision to stay.  I've lived my athletic dreams, it's about her living hers. She and the other players who stayed are happy and they are competitive and they will continue to improve, along with the rest of the team. I could not ask for anything more...other than the occasional eye rolling to stop!

I can't imagine that LPE will last.  Half of the parent's will pull their DD to play for a club that offers the opportunity to play at the next level.  I might be wrong though.

I wouldn't hold my breath on that last one.

So team is looking for some "key players" yet the girls collectively decided to remain together in D1...fair enough.

Then why do you need additional players in key positions? We're those girls not part of the collective? Not part of the core girls who have played together from 4th grade? We're they just ancillary outsiders?

We need additional players because we only had a 15 man roster this year and we believe every position/player on the field is "key"!

No. I don't know what the LPE players are going to do. Within their club they are playing at the highest level they can. Eventually, some of the parents will expect their DD to play at the next level. Unfortunately, they will have to look outside of LP to do so...thus, possibly the end of a good run.

The end of that run is closer than you think Twisted Evil

We don't have "bench players"..sure, we have players that play more than others, but everyone plays.  As I said in my original post, Grado is a development minded coach and as such, he develops and plays all his players. If not, how will they get better?
