Lets Talk!

Edison Played San Clemente and tied this week. Thoughts, Comments, Cheers?

PS: Please don't post anything about how your daughter isn't playing high school because she's too good for HS or she's getting ready for DA or some other nonsense. This thread is for people who are or have players in CIF and have some cheering on to do!

Nice shout out to your DD :)
 
My DD loves HS. Her team got crushed by Los Osos

Nice shout out to your DD :)
What division is your kid in this year? Yet another topic for discussion in this thread! I know the formidable Cypress HS was bumped up a division or two...they will be playing teams that are more comparable to them, but does that make them happy or concerned?

What team does your DD play for?
 
NoGoal: Does your DD play for Upland? If so we play you this week! on your turf!! YAAAASSSS!!!!
She plays for Alta Loma, but she was just cleared to start training again on Monday. Last Friday night her HS team got crushed by Los Osos 5-0.

Yikes! I hope she can get back on the field for League and make a difference for her team! Maybe they wouldn't have been so crushed if she was ready to play last week ;-) Good luck this season!!

Thanks, I think she will be playing in a couple of weeks. Her HS coaches are going to work her back slowly, so she is fit and in form by league.
 
Anybody know and can explain the new CIF playoff qualifications....Bdobs, I think you would.

My DDs HS team is D5 and last year her HS finished runner-up in the D5 CIF Championships. My DD told me, if they win league this year.....they play in the D2 CIF Playoffs. Why is that?

This article might be helpful http://www.presstelegram.com/sports/20161025/new-cif-ss-playoff-divisions-for-winter-sports-coming-friday I don't think your DD's team can guarantee CIF playoffs in a higher division but if they win league it will change their Playoff division rankings for the next year assuming they were in the upper echelon of the division they play in now. I'm not certain, though, as there might be different rules for playoffs for different divisions.

That is some complicated stuff. Did the CIF guys/girls write the tax code too?
 
Edison Chargers!!! Go Green and Gold! How about you? This thread is for ALL of Southern Section, San Diego Section and LA! Post away! Brag Away! Smack Talk away!!
Good luck to your daughter this season. May she stay healthy and win all the accolades that she desires. My player always liked your player when they were teammates.

San Diego CIF used to be fairly straightforward - Divisions were based on enrollment, with some exceptions allowed up or down if a school petitioned for it and had a good cause. Now most sports are based on a complicated competition formula weighted over 5 years, that allows promotion and relegation every year, but usually not by more than a single level. In the popular sports (like soccer), Division 1 is 20 teams, all of whom get into the playoffs - the top 8 into Open Division playoff, the remainder into Division 1 playoff.

No kid playing, but I still referee HS soccer. The HS forums have been useful in providing me with some insight into the teams I will be officiating. The change in the teams from December to January is also interesting to see. One girls team I refereed the other day was missing 3 ECNL and 2 other high level club players. I am sure that when I see that team again in January or February they will have a completely different level of play. Some teams tend to develop the chemistry very early usually because a lot of the players play for the same club, while others take a good month to develop that on-field chemistry. I have noticed over the years that a lot of the teams that develop that early season chemistry because the players play for the same club tend to stagnate as the season goes on and get beat by teams they beat easily in December or early January.

Good luck to all of your kids this HS season and I hope they stay injury free. Don't yell at us referees. The dual referee system used in most HS games has some drawbacks.
