Yeah I get that a lot of folks have daughters playing but c'mon

Well excuse us sir. And you are hear to talk about what, 12 & 13 year olds?

This thread is one example of why most of these 2007 kids won't be playing at 13 years old. Talking about "top" U11 teams is insane.

I get the desire to discuss the age group and teams in your kid's age bracket, but youth soccer is meaningless until the players hit puberty and are playing 11v11.

"Talking about "top" U11 teams is insane."

But the 95,000+ views of the thread ranking the top U13 teams is completely rational. Thanks for that analysis.

It makes much more sense talking about 12-13yo girls playing 11v11, the majority of whom have gone through puberty and are within 95% of their full grown height than talking about 9-10yo girls who just graduated from 7v7 to 9v9 and are still built like little girls.

Nearly as insane.

Yes, much more sense to talk about girls in middle school, since they are not at all awkward (physically nor mentally), pretty much adults already.

The issue is not that there might be threads about the younger age groups...but the fact that there might be a dialogue about "top teams"....a "top team" at the U10/11 level is pretty meaningless. If you were talking about what a great development or teaching job the coach was doing for a particular team at that age group and what program does that best, then that might be pretty interesting and good to know.

Are you sure they are meaningless? Is there any correlation between winning teams at U11 and u15? I understand teams change and transition new players in and out, wondering if the foundation of strong teams correlates to success 3-4 years down the road. Not sure it matters, everyone is just playing for a trophy, I just don't minimize "success" at younger ages.

You should.

None of the teams we competed at at U10 and U11 are the same as we are competing at now, and it's only U13.

Large organizations start to pool players. Other programs that are light in the younger ages grow. Kids quit. Really, not much is the same from who played against, our own team included, in those 3 years.
