Things in Westchester/CT are changing very quickly. Every club will stumble in a given age/class.

To a certain extent this is a good thing. More/better competition helps the development of all the kids. But there is a point of saturation at which it all becomes watered down. You'll know that time has arrived when clubs merge and/or buy each other.

The clubs which can consistently add value will flourish. That includes quality instruction (first and foremost), scheduling, recruitment, and player promotion (college commitment). The clubs that just roll a ball out there and let the kids play will eventually fade away.
