100%. It's all about the coach and the only way my kid or i would leave local play is for a coach only, not shiny medal like some think was the reason. Don;t chase medals, chase a coach only. My dd had the best and most honest coach ever for a female soccer player for two years. 40 years of coaching woman and learning from them. He never lied to me or my daughter. Never lied once and no favoritism or pay to have access to the all the goods. That is the only good reason one will drive one hour and fifteen minutes each way, to be taught by a Master in his field.Stay with your current team. Too many people are willing to chase the "new bright and shiny". Stay local, enjoy more quality time with your family. Don't get caught up in alphabet soup acronyms of the club soccer world.
