Hi all,

A little background - i have no knowledge of soccer and how things work regarding teams and finding the right clubs for a child's talent level.

I hve a U10 girl, looking to move into a competitive club from her current rec league. Due to her level, she has been made to play a lot of defense or sit out against some teams since if allowed up front she scores too much. This is taking away from her enjoyment and she feels punished, despite being told that it isn't the case. Some other parents have told us that we should be looking to move her out of rec and into higher levels.

In the past (before she made a big commitment to training more) she turned down offers to move to "travel" teams but is now interested in moving into the most competitive environment she can.

Is it normal for a parent to reach out to clubs to ask to try out or what the joining process is or is that frowned upon?

You can reach out yourself its not frowned upon. There are tryouts posts to the left on this page for all ages usually. At U10 try to find a club/team that is not to far away from home practices 2x week and maybe extra if your daughter is up for that. You should look for coach/trainer that's interested in teaching fundamentals of soccer as opposing to winning at U10. It means absolutely nothing. Recommend scouting out some practices first to see the kind of drills they run and if they look like they know what they doing at this age level.....and the main thing the kids are laughing and having fun.

Thanks for the reply - my daughter generally goes to as many practices as she can, plays futsal andtrains solo using all of the youtube coaching (amazing what you can find online these days). Agreed we want something fun and developmental. She seems to think NYSC is where she wants to play (she knows some kids from futsal that play there) but i've heard it is expensive!

It's all expensive so be prepared. If you know anyone who has older kids playing that you can ask for referrals great. Find people with first hand experience rather than rely on anonymous chat board. Finding good coaching is key. Contact some clubs in your area (don't travel too much as she's still quite young) and ask if she can come to some practices. That gives the coach a better chance to evaluate her and you can observe her, the coach, chit chat with other parents on the sidelines etc. (it's a good way to get information and you can see if they're crazy or not). Do this sooner rather than later. Clubs hold cattle call tryouts in May-June and they're very inefficient and aren't a good way for you to assess the coaching.

You should also consider NY Surf - they are top ranked in this age group and beat NYSC 1-0 last fall.

We're in lower-middle westchester, so any suggestions on teams to look at would be welcome. Honestly, we are very new to this and I never thought of it until a few people in the fall said we should look into what else is out there at a more competitive level. Silly me, I always thought that kids played some rec and then went to their middle and high school teams. Guess that isnt the case any more!

It can still be that way. Playing with friends & a good coach not obessed with winning at a young age should be the most important factors.You also need to start determining, if your daughter has the drive to play D1 or D2 in College, not you. Otherwise, Academy and or NPL is a waste of time and money.

For larger clubs you can venture into Rockland and Orange counties. World Class and Quickstrike come to mind as both having successful programs. Really comes down to how far you are willing to travel, most higher level clubs all pay similar amounts. Be ready for some sticker shock as anyone new to this will be surprised at the fees.

My daughter plays for NYSC. Yes, I had sticker shock when she moved up to club from travel. If you are interested in moving her up this year, it might be worth reaching out NYSC to see if there are any spots in the 2007 age group. I know we have one team but not sure if there are two. I know in some age groups they have accepted a player mid season. And if there's not room on the roster, they may allow her to participate in practices. NY Surf does not have any teams younger than 2003 this year in Westchester.

I suppose first order of business is to hopefully get an evaluation by those club coaches and see if she's even ready to play. I think even just training for the rest of the spring/summer and hopefully getting a roster spot for fall would be great.

She is very competitive from the technical side but she may be behind on the "how to play" side since her current situation hasn't taught her much and she's normally able to get by just on her own skill. Honestly this is what makes me not even want to bother with the local "travel" teams since every time she's played those teams all i see are long balls, kick & run and coaches shouting from the sideline.
