Can't blame players going to Academy. They are taking the toughest road. To be admired. Being coached by a teacher is not the same as being coached by a pro.

It makes no diference. Always a way round the waiver system. Revs don't play in the fall - Bolts bring back players for the spring etc etc

This is a bit over the top. Not all school coaches are just teachers that coach. There are a couple that could just as easily be coaching DAP teams. It may be only a couple, but its not fair to those coaches to lump them in with all the others.

Agreed. Lots of excellent coaches in the ISL who are great technicians and teachers of the game. Many have college and club soccer coaching backgrounds and most have advanced national licensees. The best coaches do more than coach soccer they help prepare young men for life after soccer. That is where the ISL coaches truly excel.

With Academy coaches I have found that the coaching quality varies a good deal. I like the coaches at the Revs more personally but think the Bolts have a better overall coaching staff. Unfortunately a number of the "better" academy coaches with strong track records are people I wouldn't my kid to play for. One the reasons why I chose the ISL route for my son.

I would take SS from Beaver over MK from Bolts any day of the week. And I say that in terms of both soccer and non soccer development.

You can certainly argue that ISL teacher/coaches prepare young men for life etc.....but no one has ever chosen ISL over Academy...it was chosen for them by the Academy coaches
