Because we don't need to. Our coaches coach and our girls have gotten better every year. Keep drinking that YJ Coolaide.

Thorn won a state championship with ESM. What have the great coaches from TG and Legacy ever accomplished. If you call putting talented girls on the field and staying out of the way coaching, you are right those clubs have excellent coaches.


Sorry Thorn's resume doesn't hold a candle to my daughter's liberty coach's resume! And now you will say that doesn't really matter.

Nobody will be waiting for pickups ...perhaps a few girls will have spots offered that, that's it...TG, Legacy, Liberty and Elevate not waiting with baited breathe for the "golden 10"... these girls were alerted to the merger and knew where they stood, many have already accepted positions on the above teams and were at all of these tryouts...deals are done...If you got caught watching, can't blame CR, this merger was announced before the Elevate tryout. Whether these girls are difference makers elsewhere is yet to be seen, but good for them to be topical

OMG Really!? Stop with your nonsense No one is anxiously waiting since all of the organizations team rosters are already set. As for your comment that the other clubs didn't Draw difference makers is another joke. What do you do go to every teams tryout and then get handed a secret roster from every organization detailing which players are new this year and what team they came from?? Just stop your B.S. it’s really pathetic

Not that hard to figure out. YJ only has two exceptional players (one from the igloo team, other MC). The rest are interchangeable. They are Staying. TG has 5 exceptional players who are staying. Those are the facts.

those interchangeable players that will stay on the AA team are F & F now of 2 coaches. The other girls will be dropped...and they are just as good as the girls who stay. Its all who you know in this age bracket. truth

If Thorn is coaching it will still be a dumpster fire. Truth.

Thorn is a good coach stop stirring up nonsense. Thorn will take the top 4 girls off Colbert team. The rest will go to the b team. Yj will have a good A team mediocre b team and c and d money makers for the club.



if i was the Igloo team I would head for the hills. they will get minimal playing time. thorn is a good coach for the 10 that play...there will be many girls on the bench this year. good luck

I don’t think you can say Thorn is a good coach based on the performance of her team this year...an embarrassment to the brand. That said YJ will be better next year when their best player comes back from injuries. We’ll have to see how the Chemistry pans out wit the new girls. Could be rough as coaches daughters are just ok players.

agree but this age YJ has been a mess .. they let go of a lot of talent and is why TG in this age is so good. a lot are all former YJ players it will wind up a similar outcome next year as well lots of girls will leave again because they won't get any time on the field besides the coaches daughter

TG not immune to kids trying to find a better situation. They had a few defections as well for various reasons. All teams had movement. Elevate having another supplemental tryout. Why? Because kids continue to move and they want to capture talent ( and money). Liberty had an overhaul with girls moving, all teams doit at this age.Things will settle down and intensify as HS play becomes more important. Less team switching going forward. Concentrate on your girls happiness parents, if they are unhappy on a team, no reason to stick around regardless of who pulls the strings come recruitment time, they will quit before then.

I agree with the player happiness. Our daughter shifted teams in the summer of 9th grade as she was extremely unhappy with her current team. She couldn't have made a better decision as her new teammates worked harder to get better and everybody shared the ball.

The difference is the girls who left TG never played, and left for lower level clubs. the girls who left YJ were unhappy with the coaching and did not leave for lack of playing time. Big difference there. I agree that the most important thing is being happy on your team.

The reason girls switched teams is arbitrary. More playing time, crappy coaching, better recruitment ops, conflicts, etc... it doesn’t really matter except to the individual families. Point is all this movement creates opportunity. Fresh starts, fresh attitude to start HS years with. No more “baby ball”, Organizations where pandered to player/coach combos make decisions for everyone will be exposed and teams will suffer. Can’t hide marginal daughter player and force feed minutes that are unwarranted. Personal, can’t wait. Some teams will be stronger, others weaker. all will be motivated to show “ baby ball” is behind them and that they belong regardless of where they are. Again, can’t wait. There will be surprises.
