    even if that is the case, man...those are some great numbers representing the bay area. 7/24??? and you're right...6 between 2 clubs in the Bay Area is pretty neat.

    This 04 age group has been really good in the Bay Area for awhile. While 6 May be surprising to most, I knew it could happen. Credit to those families and coaches for great work through the years. Hope it continues as they get older as well

    It will be interesting to see how these ynt players progress. I imagined be there’s burn out with all the camp s and have long expressed here my feeling that so many camps so young are silly. I’m not saying I wouldn’t send my kid (that’s a heck of an experience) but I agree it probably isn’t any more of a path to national team or professional play than keeping your head down and peaking in college. Maybe less. But the trade off for that sort of experience as a teen? Priceless in its own way IMO. Hopefully these young talents can stay injury free despite the ynt camps and 4 day week training.

    Going to a few camps and maybe getting to travel would be really cool. More than that and not making thee WNT would be a bit too much.

    Agree. I read an article a while back where one of the heads (April maybe?) was quoted as saying they were trying to expand the pool of youth players with camp and international experience. So maybe they’ll cycle through more kids, with the hope that when the real call ups happen they have a bigger pool with more experience to draw from. That’s probably better overall than asking the same 20 kids to miss 40 days of school per year? I stand by thinking a lot of this is silly, but if they spread the experience around maybe it is better overall. And from a diplomacy perspective - even if not a development perspective - it is probably a good approach to take. Soccer is the world’s most popular sport, and the USA should be represented in youth international events. But I’m probably giving US Soccer too much credit hat this is the thinking lol. And maybe they’ll have no more luck picking the kids who will actually be WNT material out of college, who knows.

    That's nothing. How about I score the winner with 5 minutes left vs Mexico in the championship! Awesome stuff. Anderson was awarded golden gloves as well. Nice nor cal representation on the national stage.

    Impressive for Haiti and Mexico to push USA to the end in their matches.
