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.

Yes, I know. I brought her there. Surf just wasn't ready for a quality girls coach like Kim.

DA, if you're reading this, as a father of an 03 girl, what LISC has put together with the female first initiative is the only program around. What are you waiting for? Unless you rather stand with the absentee Riley and his lack of diversity - zero female coaches.

Of course now the lack of diversity is the fault of one person and one club. Who are the great female role models at SUSA & EMSC? How many female Club Director’s, DOC’S, trainers, coaches do you know at any of these clubs. Frey sees the lack of female leadership and have put together a well thought out business model that they are carefully rolling out that will compete with every club for players. The soccer model has failed on LI with a significant drop in talented players across the board. The talent level has dropped and LI is losing there credibility with colleges across the board. College coaches are looking for players who continue to grow ad are ready to play in college and it is obvious to them that the competitive levels are getting worse each year. I have seen older teams across the board this season and there level of play especially with players I have seen since they were younger significantly drop. This LIFC initiative is a good start to make this other clubs look at females in larger roles for these clubs because these male dominated clubs have run these programs down.

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.

The licensure is important, but you know what else is for our family? A positive culture and having people my player finds relatable. The culture of a club to (some) pre-teen and teenage girls can have added effects to their game; either negative or positive. In this case the culture created at LISC is one of the best. The parents, the players, and the staff alike work well together and it been the best decision for our family. Talk to anyone of the families and staff on any given day and they will tell you the same.

Might be tough to get a good team together with most everyone already making commitments. Can't make a competitive team with the leftover girls. Seems like if they were going to get it then it would have been announced when Alby lost their DA status. Doesn't make sense to give them a team that they know can't be good and doing it just because a few girls won't have a place to play. The real issue was that there just isn't enough DA quality girls to fill the teams with 2 ECNL teams too. They got rid of the one clunker in ALBY. Don't hand that clunker to another program and expect it to suddenly be good.

The Fury Team only had 10 2003's". The ALBY team not even that many. Combined they can make 1 decent team at the U17 level next year. Don't forget they split U16 and U17 next season. Where would another whole team of so called 'talented' girls come from?

Wrong. Alby had 12. New girls joined. If anything that roster is going to be huge. Might cause players to jump. Who wants to go to a showcase and have to sit because only 18 dress?

Agreed we should be rooting for LISC on this one.

Not knocking the female staff as they are very strong and talented. the question becomes, does LI really need another or should I say have enough talent for another top level team (SUSA, EM, ALBY and LISC?) really? I am very surprised mid to lower level players are choosing not to play high school. MISTAKE! this is about mom an dad puffing out their chests....

Goes without saying, but unless you're tracking your kids electronically you have no idea who they're talking to. Even then most kids find ways around it. All clubs run background checks but many won't get flagged if they've never been caught. An sadly, when you see cases of older women with teenage boys lots of guys chime in "way to go! wish I'd had that in high school"

What about all the men in our region who have had allegations made against them who are still training female athletes? It seems that boys go to the authorities after inappropriate contact and girls are forgotten.
Stand up for your daughters, Protect them and report inappropriate contact. By not doing so you are allowing others to be victimized by the same predators.

WTF does this have to do with this thread?

A) Are 03 Fury players leaving now after SD?
B) LISC needs that 03 age group!

WTF is your an Ahole. Typical Alby parent. It’s reported that a female trainer in DA abused her players. You know of male coaches accused of abusing their players. But let’s ignore it because my kid going to be a star.

Not an Alby parent A-hole. Point is you (or someone else) comes on here and starts pontificating about allegations against trainers. Start another thread for that, because yes it's a serious issue. But don't look to discredit the process LISC has put in place. Quite frankly, it's about time a club starts hiring more female trainers for the girls side. We all know Slick looks the other other way with what goes on with his trainers.

Many background checks are flawed. As with all businesses, there is a limit as to how much money they will spend individually to run a check. Most likely, they will not spend a couple of hundred dollars to run a check on one individual but will spend a tenth of that to run on one potential employee for a service that provides a monthly fee. Those bcs have significant “ blind spots” and although they check throughout the usa, they do not cover many courts in the state of ny. It’s a matter of cost- benefit and the business being able to say they did their due diligence but they are not comprehensive.

Official background checks won't flag someone if they've never been in trouble with the law before. Calling former employers won't usually get you anything more than dates of employment, title and possibly salary. They don't want a defamation lawsuit.
But sometimes a few phone calls to someone who knows someone who knows the hire might turn up something off the record.

Re: LISC Female First Initiative - First Six - 06/30/19 10:40 PM

With the Split of U16 and U17, Alby is going to have a hard time filling up the two different years with quality players. Where would another whole team of quality U17 players even come from? And if LISC steals a few quality girls from ALBY then we'll have 2 weak teams on the Island. If LISC is granted that year I don't think it is going to work out well for them or ALBY. They don't need to put a team on the field that can't compete right now. They should wait another year to apply for the U17 level.

I completely agree! I really respect what LISC is trying to build and they're really making steps in the right direction. But let's be honest, their 04 team was solid this year because of a few powerhouse players they picked up from Fury, added to a base of some pretty good players from KK Atletico. The 05s struggled tremendously and they are already adding the 06 age group. I could see if LISC's current 03 team was killing it in EDP, but they're struggling in the lowest level-not sure how adding a handful of players from a very weak Alby GDA team would really help.
Bottom line, if there are 03s still looking, why not just play for the LISC EDP team in that age group? That coaching staff is so solid and so connected, wouldn't the kids be better off playing at a more appropriate level?
Idk, with all the unknowns with the 05 and 06 age groups, slapping together a team of GDA 03s just for the heck of it, doesn't really make much sense.

Are you sure they have an 03 EDP Alby team? Who's the coach? They barely have enough players to field the 03 DA team.

They don't need to put a team on the field that can't compete right now. They should wait another year to apply for the U17 level.


I completely agree! I really respect what LISC is trying to build and they're really making steps in the right direction. But let's be honest, their 04 team was solid this year because of a few powerhouse players they picked up from Fury, added to a base of some pretty good players from KK Atletico. The 05s struggled tremendously and they are already adding the 06 age group. I could see if LISC's current 03 team was killing it in EDP, but they're struggling in the lowest level-not sure how adding a handful of players from a very weak Alby GDA team would really help.
Bottom line, if there are 03s still looking, why not just play for the LISC EDP team in that age group? That coaching staff is so solid and so connected, wouldn't the kids be better off playing at a more appropriate level?
Idk, with all the unknowns with the 05 and 06 age groups, slapping together a team of GDA 03s just for the heck of it, doesn't really make much sense.

come on. there is an alby 2003 edp team. they should go there. its seperate from da. a good coach.


Are you sure they have an 03 EDP Alby team? Who's the coach? They barely have enough players to field the 03 DA team.


Alby does not have GDA anymore

Nothing yet, but I will check again.....


Nothing yet.


Guessing if nothing is announced tomorrow or Tuesday it's probably not happening this year.


You are 100% correct. I am still on this!!


Guessing this isn't happening for this coming year?

I think you are correct. My understanding is that after numerous requests from LISC the GDA did not even give the courtesy of a reply.

In my opinion not getting 03 right now is a good thing. So far LISC have stuck to there strategic plan by building a foundation for the younger age groups. By starting with the younger girls this will give them time to train and develop these younger players so when they are age appropriate for this age group they will be ready as an age appropriate group to make that move. By bringing in a new 03 team now it will take time to build team chemistry and connection with the coaching staff. At this age players are looking for college placement and a good showing at showcases and a ew exam will make it that much harder. In addition the coaches really do not know these new players and it would make it that much harder to talk to colleges on your behalf.

I can say with certainty that, that post quoted above did NOT come from LISC.

It's too bad, would have been good for 03s to have the college resources at LISC, and some good talent would have come over. Fury players don't even know who their coaches are yet, and if it's the current ones they have zero college contacts.

The college resources are available to the club regardless of the patch on their jersey. Me thinks you think getting pummeled in gda every week is a better option than solid training, development of individual style and club relationships. Lisc has an 03 team that plays in edp, but if you're too starry eyed for the patch to see a solid option, that's on you.

the poster is correct. The club has a lot of work to do and adding another team is more pressure they don't need. Plus most 03s will be juniors. How many will want to change clubs at this point? If you can't get the talent you're better off not doing it rather than run another poor quality team.

That lisc edp team was actually a combo 03-04 team and did poorly. Albertson Fury ( seperate from fc Albertson) did well in the 04s. No reason for Albertson fury girls to leave. The Albertson edp coach is not a da coach. He’s good. No reason for fury girls to leave to play edp at lisc. .

That’s what I was trying to explain in my original post. Thank you. LISC clearly have a strategic plan and they should “stay the course”. Adding a team with Juniors makes no sense and those juniors who are already committed are not going to make the jump to a new club, new coaches, new team.

Out of 20 or so juniors on Fury, how many are comitted ? Maybe 2. So that argument goes out the window. Riley and his junior coaches are not the recruiting machines you think they are.
