It was a team of super star kids & ego-centric parents. Never a good combo...

That is another way of putting it I guess.

All top teams have super egos parents which is the nature of the beast.
The coach was different than the trainer, the coach made the game day decisions while the trainer gave the half time speech.

The HOTA players could move the ball around but when you put a certain player in a position they cannot handle, do not adjust quickly you made a failed tactical decision as a coach.

This is a shame they disbanded but sometimes it works out the best for all parties involved. So many U10 super star teams imploded by the time they are U12 due to overzealous people who say they are in it for the kids.

I agree that the HOTA parents were over the top. The kids were not as talented as they thought. They were not as nearly as athletic as most of the other teams. As the more athletic teams( NHP, Elmont, Farmingdale) became more skilled, HOTA drifted into D1 mediocrity. Their losses came because they were not better than the teams they played and not beacause they played some "techinical" brand of soccer. That is just some trainer's nonsensical excuse

Mediocrity? Like tieing more skilled Elmont for 6th place. They had too many of the same type of player, very skilled, but not athletically gifted. But they did play good technical soccer.

Yes, the Elmont team that beat HOTA soundly.

Get your facts straight, the elmont game was after the trainer was removed, the team was in disarray and nobody cared, a 4 to 2 score is not exactly a soundly beating!

I am surprised that the Hicksville Galaxy took on the Hota kids. Something is weird about that.

Does anyone know what outdoor league the Latin Boys SC play in, or are they just a compiled team for indoor purposes?

There are some U-12 players on there. But its basically just a few teams combined. Not much competition for them, a little silly.

Hicksville seemed to be a good team getting better each season. If they took all these HOTA kids did they get rid of a bunch of their own boys or just increase their roster? How many kids are allowed on the roster at this age and if they max out are they really going to sub in all these boys? If so than it could be a good things. I have seen some teams sub nicely while others not so much.

By the way, how many HOTA players went to Hicksville and is that the Galaxy they went to?

Not from Hota, but my point is that you are labeling Hota as mediocre based on their record, and comparing them to Elmont, who you say is not mediocre, yet Elmont and Hota had identical records. Your argument makes no sense in that regard.

You can take up to 15 players on the roster but I have no clue why Hicksville would do something like this. They had a nice team, maybe the coach is going to be on the RB team by the end of the next tryouts.

Are they any other options in LIJ to get a team relocated to a lower division when the division's coordinator will not accept your requests?
