Re: National Scouting Report.

Hey Bench Warmer, thanks for your reply. I see your point but who is to say they won't pay for all his college fees and feed him for three years. :P That way when he leaves college he won't owe the government a bucket load of money. If you can think of any questions I should ask them before handing...

Re: Over age players ??

This might be of interest to those who followed a thread last year about how some juniors, often of African descent look older than their age group. Obviously a global issue http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/competitions/serie-a/10635867/Lazio-threaten-legal-action-after-claims-Cameroon-17-...

Re: NPL Victoria, the impact on juniors

I worry that the drive to concentrate resources on a smaller and smaller pool of identified talent will (if it isn't already) restrict the opportunity for more kids to play football (and younger adults too). Every initiative I read about seems to involve clubs being told to take in fewer kids. Rega...

Re: Henley Heat Seeking U13 JSL players for season 2014

Totally Agree - for example Cobras u13 JPL still requires 5-6 players to fill a team but if sides like this are accepted it makes it harder for everyone ! What I don't understand is that clubs have not yet nominated their Junior Teams for 2014, and until they do then the FFSA has not formally accep...

I also noticed that if your child goes to the 'right' private soccer academy, it doesn't harm your chances either. Better still, if dad runs the academy.

Which club? Which privately run academy?
