    I applaud my friend, @TJsoccer , for the 2400th comment on this thread. This thread has sustained me through some of life's great challenges. Emerson said, "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds". But we'd never call this thread "foolish" so I am in awe of its consistency.

    Wasn't Adam Smith his buddy that went after the UC Davis kid?

    Been awhile since I clicked on this link. Seems very quiet like youth soccer in general around here.
    I guess most of the drama has died down. Some of the local regional teams look to be doing very well.
    I think that San Juan 06 girls team has been #1 for a couple of years straight!

    I know gotsoccer is very suspect (how many tournaments you attend/win) at times, but still a decent
    gauge looking at regional and CAN teams in general.

    Hope everyone is enjoying a soccer break at this time of the year since most clubs are thankfully closed
    for the holidays. I know my kids are happy for the break.

    Good post.
    18 of our top teams on one list. Thanks.
    I have seen that San Juan 06 girls team play a few times. What a treat!
    Be safe on New years!!

    I know you're not fond of FCEG, but it's somewhat unfair not to include Ormsby's FCEG 02G team, ranked #6 in the US, no? Don't get me wrong, FCEG is a dumpster fire, but that team is solid.

    I guess I just included the Vision team since they were first on the list I looked. The FCEG 02G has been a very
    good team for awhile. Not so much a dis, but I could have expanded to include that good local team, yes. I may not
    be fond of that club, but I will always support good local teams and coaches. Maybe an expanded list including
    just regional teams is in order. I know there are other local teams that are pretty good that didn't make the top list.

    I know this isn't an EG issue directly, I have kids both at IR and Sac U. I heard the very long time Director at Sac U is leaving or left?
    If there was an announcement, did I missed the email? I know I have intentionally stepped away from the drama, but I figure I would
    see or hear something. A parent I talked to tonight told me he was already gone?

    I heard yesterday he took a job in the Bay Area(Los Gatos United) as a technical director I believe. Nothing on the website so not sure if true or not.

    I have heard a rumor that a Charter School in Sacramento is going the direction of a Sports Academy and they have approached AAU Basketball Teams, Gymnastics Clubs, Traveling Baseball Teams and FC Elk Grove to do the soccer portion. I have hard that FC Elk Grove fearless leader AD would not go along with the program so they went to Sac Republic who loved the idea and has paired up with them. From what I have heard it sounds like a great opportunity for kids who are elite athletes to be in an environment to help better their skills. Sac Republic was more than happy to take this program away from FC Elk Grove due to their dislike of AD. This club is closer to becoming Fremont Soccer every day.

    This is a joke, right? This isn't Europe. Academies there are free to the elite players that make the cut on a year to year basis.
