HAHAHHA. Another ignorant parent....Congrats. Sometimes its better to remain silent and let everyone assume you are an idiot, rather than open your mouth and remove all doubt.
What team is that exactly?
Too bad you didn't take your own advice. Ever hear of this town club called Clarkstown SC? And before you spout off your nonsense that none of their teams won the NY State Cup this year, they had 4 teams in the finals --- pretty good for a town club. Their 2007 team is ranked #4 NATIONALLY, 1st place EDP Division 1 this Spring. 2006 team ranked #35 NATIONALLY, 1st place EDP Division 1 North this Spring as well with numerous other accolades and wins for both of these teams. Their 09 team is already up and coming as well making to the State Cup final first year with this group playing together. I could go on but you are pretty savvy so you can and look it all up in an effort to disprove me, but maybe just for once suck it up and realize you might be wrong for a hot second.
I like you have been around the system -- there are bad academies, town clubs and good ones, there are great trainers and bad trainers. and they happen to be at both places. Mismanagement exists at all levels of soccer as does greed, ignorance, and delusion. One size does not fit all, nor does one opinion.
I happen to have an average player and an excellent player. Year over year my average player got offers from academy teams just so they could make money as they needed to fill teams. Meanwhile my kid that is excellent is now playing for a town club as its by far the most well run, tightly managed, best training I have seen out there.
So next time you want to open your mouth, maybe don't.....
So I guess the Surf purchaser / transfer rumors mentioned earlier in this thread were erroneous as expected.
Maybe no one wants to buy it or take it over...nothing erroneous just a bad business deal
The Girls side seems to have some value. The boys are virtually non existent. Possibility that they go under?
There is very little to no intrinsic value in Surf even on the girls side. There are no physical assets, no property owned. There are no valuable contracts or field access rights to be purchased. The college coach hires, even if you consider any value to be there, are easily replaced. At most you are buying the customer base, but as we all know on LI, players and teams swap clubs constantly. If considered a failing club those teams could be gone within days.
It's a shame actually. Came in with big hope and promises, none of which happened. Maybe their college placement process can be their big save?
I assume they meant the new 05/06 Albertsons/Fury teams. With how horrible the Albertson 2005 team was last year I would assume this assessment would stand. Meaning the Albertson/Fury 05/06 teams are the 6th and 8th teams in the 2006 age group.
That is sad. It wasnâ€™t that long ago the name Albertson meant something.
If it's an 05/06 team, then they can't be on a 2006 ranking of teams.
I agree to a point. But in our so called Academy, there is no movement. Nobody moves up , and nobody moves down. The bottom line is itâ€™s money. They all know if someone is demoted from a higher team, to a lower team the parents will remove their child.
This isn't the first victim of Title IX and it won't be the last. When you have to balance out the sports by gender, having a football team with 85 scholarships on it requires a lot of money to be spent on offsetting sports. Having other expensive men's teams just makes the problem worse and some University's choose to cut them rather than try to fit them within the budget.
The East Islip United(Girls 2001-2002) are looking for field players and a goalkeeper. We play in the EDP First Division and attend many college showcases.The team is professionally coached and trained.
