So hereís a fun fact. No U16/17 SC girls made the region pool this year. So for those parents thinking about investing $700-$800 on Region camp at that age group next year, save your money and send your kid to a college ID camp. In talking to another coach from GA at the camp, it sounds like some of our own coaches were even talked down to. To be fair though Iím not sure either head coach from both SC teams showed up.
What coaches got talked down to and what coaches didn't show up?
This is coming from a GA coach so take it for what itís worth (I wasnít there). Either the U16 or U 17 coach didnít show, think he/she coaches with USC. Whatever coach showed up in his place, according to this coach, got ridden a bit. When I was growing up, ODP was THE top when it came to exposure but itís sad that itís just turned into another money maker. And if itís true that a head coach didnít show, shame on SCYS for allowing that!
And get any sense of the program or what the benefits are.
I took a look at some other states' ODP sites(as well as USYS and US Club Soccer) and find them all to be cluttered and disjointed or unhelpful. Seems like a business opportunity for a web designers and/or communications pro.
