Am I supposed to bring my daughter to that club just because they have an entire female staff??
That would be a smart move. It works very well as it did when Kim Wyant was heading up the Long Island Lady Riders youth component years ago. It was a tremendous success.
Let me take this up a notch by noting the high quality of these women. I'll put these gainst any of the FC Fury coaches, and also EM. Jaime Gonzalez and Rauri McGuinness dont come close to these women in numerous areas besides their soccer acumen.
This is great on paper. But, comparing to other clubs as Larry does how many of these women have their USSF "B" license or above? That is the requisite to be a coach in the DA League as put forth by USSF. TO be a DIRECTOR you must have your "A" license or above. But as we all know the DA does not enforce this. So, if these women do not have this then they are doing the same disservice that FC Fury and other local clubs are doing.
Yeah, because if you don't have that license you can't be a good coach and having the license makes you a better coach. SARCASM!!!!!
LISC has put together a great coaching staff and a very good U15 team. They can compete with anyone. U14 certainly is not a great team but I bet they improve a lot by next year.
Yes, you need that license to be a coach at supposedly the highest level (DA) in the USA. NO SARCASM !!!
I am sure if your child came home from school in September and you found out all her/his teachers only had a Bachelor's degree you would be at the next school Board Meeting screaming why don't these teachers have a Master's Degree and/or above.
The point of the USSF "B" license is to show you have been continuing to educate yourself with the game as it evolves. Same way a teacher gets a Bachelor's Degree, than a Master's Degree. If they want to be a school Administrator they get an Administrative license or a PhD, or Ed. D. Show me a school Superintendent or even School Principal with just a Bachelor's degree? Exactly !! Yet, many of these clubs hire some shmuck who played soccer in college and now with no high level of Education is running their entire Academy or Club. I am NOT saying this is specifically happening at LISC but I am saying show me their licenses and the "experiences" they have as head coaches for these positions they now hold, instead of just the fact that they are FEMALE.
