Help with navigating the soccer landscape Empty Help with navigating the soccer landscape

Post by dazedconfused on Mon Jan 28, 2019 7:46 pm

I have a 2012 girl that played one season of rec soccer a couple of years ago but didn't like it very much and instead focused on gymnastics. For the last year, she has been playing futsal (City Juniors) and wants to continue and play outdoor. From what people have told us, next year is when the girls transition out of rec into academy but other than that, I'm a bit lost of how to proceed and what the options really are. We are already driving all over the place and would ideally like to find a team/club near us (Lake Highlands). We know plenty of people that have all sorts of good or bad things to say about Solar and Sting and it seems like a bit of a dice roll with the larger organizations. I have read people on here mention independent teams but how does one go about finding them? Anyone have any thoughts?

Don’t worry you have lots of options and lots of time. Competitive(select) soccer doesn’t start until U11.

There will be more than enough options posted on the ‘12 looking section.
http://www.txsoccer.net/f43-12s-girls-and-younger-discussion-players-and-teams-looking

Try several before you settle. Don’t let someone pressure you into a quick decision. Don’t get hung up on clubs but instead focus on the right coach for your child. It is different for everyone. All coaches are different and have varying coaching styles. Find one that works for you and keeps your kid engaged.

I would suggest finding a team closer to your home for now.

You CAN go wrong with ANY club. The clubs for the most part just want your money (as do a lot of, not all, coaches). It is a business, they're not non-profit.

Follow Wannabe and forget the club. Find a coach that fits (the closest) Laughing the needs of your daughter in the area you can get to. Sometimes you have to make the effort to possibly drive a little further than you like (but finding the right coach is well worth it). Pick the top five or so and go watch their practices/games and talk to the parents (don't be afraid to ask them questions).

Try out FCUSA or Frisco Fusion (depending on your location). Lower cost clubs with great success. FCUSA has awesome coaches at multiple age groups.

You're welcome to come out to a couple training sessions with Dallas United and see if it's a good fit for your daughter.  We do not have a 2012 team yet, but we do have lots of younger players participating on a training only basis for the Spring.  I'll be happy to answer any questions you have about the club or what your options are at your daughter's age and what you can expect going forward.  My name is Chad Cadenhead and my number is 214-558-2461.

Edit: I forgot to mention that we train at Moss Park (on Greenville between Walnut Hill and Royal). It's very close to Lake Highlands. The younger training only kids have been coming out on Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:30 pm.

I would encourage you to check out the Renegades. We were founded by parents and coaches that were tired of the soccer establishment in North Texas. We have world class coaching including former FC Dallas player Zach Loyd and focus on developing awesome humans that can not only learn the game of soccer but have a chance to impact the community.

www.renegadessoccer.com or call Steve at 214-673-1319

Are you a Renegade?
