Yes.

Shes good not great. In fairness, she doesn't have much to do most of the time. Nice Size, but needs to be more vocal. Hopefully that comes with age.


Most of these kids aren't very vocal, they are learning to step and move and see the ball and just call you left right, middle, ball down, etc.

I think you see huge step forward in goalies from 4th-6th grade. So much muscle memory involved.

All those programs you listed have parent coaches so are they just a glorified rec team?

As someone who knows nothing about Maryland clubs, is that really accurate? The top MD programs all have parent coaches? That is a little surprising.

Most clubs have qualified coaches even if they are a parent and some won’t let a players parent be the head coach. LTLC has a coach that coaches every sport one of his kids is gone- big difference. If serious about getting your daughter better coaching and training stay away from LTLC.

They may be parents, but they are also experienced lax players. Head coach of Heros 2028 Green played at Notre Dame, head coach of Heros 2027 Green played at Hofstra, head coaches of Heros 2026 Green played at Towson and Hofstra.

Impressive, they should never lose to a regular parent coach then.

If you possibly can - avoid parent coaching. While these parent coaches may have played at colleges like NotreDamr and Hofstra it does not make them immune from the same daddy/mommy ball that you would get at a rec program like LTRC. The difference is at M&D you’ll be paying $3000/season for it instead of $1,200.

Find an M&D parent from one of the older teams ( the teams with parent coaches and assistant coaches) and ask them what happens at M&D when parents are involved with coaching.
Don’t ask if the team wins - but ask how parental involvement shapes the team, line ups, positioning, etc

It’s not good

What club has no parent coaches at all levels?

I have two daughters in club, the older has a former D1 HC as her coach and a former All American as assistant, while the younger one has a former successful HS HC. Although they have daughters on the team, none are pushing for their own kid to be the "star", they want to win as much as any parent does, but they also know how to teach and develop.

Good for you. Not everyone has the same experience. In fact, many have the opposite experience. Daddy Ball is killing many youth teams.

Yes, I would agree with this. Playing at the high level is good and a good foundation for coaching, but having their son/daughter on the team just seems like somewhat of a conflict of interest, and as pointed out, for the yearly costs, seems like you'd have non parent coaches.

I believe the bigger VA programs have non parent coaches at almost all levels (don't know every team) but I know for the most part they are all non parents.

ummm. Skywalkers has no parent coaches. By no means is their program perfect but at least the mommy/daddy ball issue doesn't exist. And some club teams have multiple parent coaches coaching a team. It just leads to problems almost every time. It's been talked about ad naseum on these forums and there's no easy solution but parent coaching will always be an issue.

Best coach my older D had was a Dad with his daughter on the team. He was way more invested especially in the offseason-fall and winter . Turnover of college coaches is high-my other D had 5 different HC for club. It is very dependant on the Dad (BTW -he never played in college but was a very good coach)

Sw has parents coach teams their daughter not on. If you don’t think they don’t still influence daughters team you are sadly mistaken.

Not a SW family, but have a ton of respect for how they manage it. Not only are there no parent coaches for their daughters team. Their leadership writes out practice plans for all teams. (blue teams at least). This keeps them consistant from team to team which helps alot over the long-term.

Not saying they dont have issues, but many fewer than the other comparable top Baltimore teams.
