2004-2010 Hi everyone, I wanted to share our families recruiting experience with all of you from 2010-2019. All of us has experienced girls youth soccer recruiting right? We all have stories to tell. Here is ours. I remember laying in bed with my wife with when my dd was in the womb. My wife and I would watch with amazement her feet kicking all the time. We would laugh because my son was the opposite. Super mellow, happy to be in the womb in a safe place by a mom who will love him so much that their best friends today. We would talk about how we thought she must be soccer player. You see, Grandpa came over to the states when he was 19 from Guatemala. He got a job delivering milk but also was a huge soccer fa and really good player. He coached local club soccer in Diamond Bar and coached the likes of Jim Edmonds. I think Jim played Football, Soccer and Baseball in High School. Gradpa is also a referee and has been doing refereeing for High School Soccer for over 30 years. The day before dd was born, we went to the Dr for last appointment. Everything looked great. Position of the head and all that. The next morning my wife's water burst and we were off to the hospital. I've been through this before I said to my self. Nurse comes in and does a check and says, "your breached mam." We both were shocked. That little stinker moved positions. Our great friend and Dr Lisa Johnson comes in and comes in says, "your going to have a baby in 45 minutes." Dr does her thing and dd comes out kicking and screaming and Dr says, "wow, I think you got a little soccer player." No joke. It's cool to look back sometimes. So we bounced around and ended up in Temecula 2008. I finally get to see how this little bundle of energy does on the u6 AYSO circuit. We were the "shooting stars." We were the league champs and pretty much won all the games. Grandpa and I would watch and he would say things like, "wow, she passes the ball." It was fun times. She loved little other girls score. She was really fast but we had that was even faster. After team party, the real fast girls mom told us good next season. I saw the mom because she helped coach the girls. I asked if they were moving and they said, "no, were doing club." I said, "oh." I asked my wife what club soccer was and she shared about how she grew up in club soccer and it was really tough to make. She said her dad will start his meeting with the parents like this: If you want play time promised, you need to stay in AYSO. I play who I want, where I want on the filed to play because I want to win. I'm the coach. Edmonds was all in and was told he was one of the best in the area. 3 sport athlete in High School I think. Every year he would have pissed off parents complaining about their boys not getting in the game. He would say, :Go to AYSO if you want play time. I want to win!!!!
