    Hello,

    just wondering if anyone has heard through the grapevine which coaches might be ending up at GPSSD, particularly in the East? Thanks.

    Looks like a bunch of clowns minus Ac and Ray. Will Rells is a jack ass and is terrible for youth soccer. I hope any parent who considers playing for him does some research. Crazy, out of control, unstable, And weak.

    Really!?!, I am grateful for a reply like yours, but where on earth can a parent "do research." The soccer parents I know are pretty entrenched with their clubs and teams. I'd love to find a way to "research" coaches.

    NCIC ?
    ...better yet, ask around the soccer community, parents, coaches,...kids.

    It's not easy. On the internet you usually get the extremes, the disgruntled parent on one end and the kool-aid drinking superfan parent on the other. I think the best way to go about it and draw an unbiased opinion is to get to know people around other clubs and ask around, but more importantly, stalk the coach. By that I mean find out where the coach practices and watch a few sessions. Then go watch a game or two and try to draw your own conclusions.

    I agree with the idea of going and watching a few games and practices. You can tell a lot about a coach by the way the sidelines behave and the quality of soccer played by the team.

    Seems like the Central teams will have the good coaches and everyone else will be what Barca Cantera once was. LK is a nice addition though to their coaching staff.

    I watched a couple state cup games for a team we were considering when my daughter switched clubs a few years ago. I liked what I saw and it made the decision easy.

    This is not even close. Fees range from 1200-1850 depending on age in the central location. My daughter is an 04, and our fee is 1650.

    Really is the wrong person to ask. I understand that everything on this forum should be considered a subjective opinion until fact checked but he is just lame. It is now apparent that his true intent is not Will but to bring the entire club down with unconscionable claims. As a parent that is trying to set a plan for my child for the next few years his behavior is not appreciated. It creates much more work.

    To say that Really is an extreme is an understatement at this point. Lost all credibility with me.

    Sad, sad, sad and jealous! First you are against Will but now you only mention other coaches.

    If you want to keep some credibility say where you came up with this number? Out of your a#@! I don't think you are a coach but rather a local DOC or President.

    Great lame excuse. Told by who? A parent whose kid tried out? What age group and location? Maybe you could help Sealion out so he can correct whoever is the internal source of this wrong information. LOL. You need help.

    Are the fees listed on the website? What determines the $ amount ? Youngers / olders? Quality of the coach?

    Besides the established 04 team what other quality do they have that warrants fees like that

    This range is most likely based on the age and level of play of the teams just like at most clubs. You should know this. Seems in line with other clubs in the area with the exception of South San Diego clubs. Why don't you list your clubs fees and level of play?
