Can we bet on this? Any Coppermine* parents giving odds?

I certainly got a chuckle when I realized Curb Shoppe has been closed for two years. Pretty lame if that is what got the last thread nuked.

Why are you heading back down the negativity road. Let’s stay on the high road so we have a means of open communication between people with questions and answers.

Agreed! Anyone else get the feeling that there is someone who keeps posting things just to get everyone riled up? I bet it’s a kid. If we don’t take the bait, and act like grownups this thread will continue despite someone’s best efforts to have it removed.

It absolutely does happen. Its usually more informal, through the parents. However, most moves are usually parent/player driven.

Just wait for it... Skywalkers notorious for it! They will raid Coppermines roster the same way they have at the older age groups!

100% agree. Avoid and ignore the nonsense and keep the thread going.

What is the best way to figure out what teams are looking for what type of player. My daughter is a defender looking to go to a team where there is more consistency on the team as opposed to her current team where there is a large gap in skill development between the top and bottom players. I can’t watch every single NGLL game or tournament match. Truthfully do parents really email teams or is that hyperbole?

Is she looking to tryout for any teams in particular? People here might be able to tell you where teams are at with defense, if they'd be honest about it.

No idea. We live inside the beltway so far north Baltimore teams are out from a logistical standpoint. We’re not new to club lax but really thinking through options for what she wants to do.

Biggest challenges on defense within A is skywalkers, followed by HoCo. Among top 4 teams. all have solid defenses buy Coppermine is probably the weakest of the four.

1. M&D
2. Hero's
3. Capital (technically not MD, but will draw southern MD girls)
4. Skywalkers
5. MD United

Coppermine would probably be 6th, followed by Integrity, LBC and TLC

We narrowed our list down to how far we are willing to commute to/from practice. Then we'll try to watch some of their games during the Summer tournaments (if not playing at the same time) to see if she would have a chance of making the team and starting.

Really? I would have said opposite about Coppermine…and I’m not a Coppermine parent. I think M&D will be looking for solid defenders…as well as probably Crush. Agree on Skywalkers.

This is good info. Similar question, of the A teams, from a Midfield perspective (especially top 5) which of those teams needs the most help at the Midfield position? Obviously all teams have a strong player/s at that spot but there are some that seem weaker at that spot than others. But it's hard to see everyone as the PP has said.

Coppermine, M&D and Heros have good depth there, the first two probably not looking to add any midfielders without moving current ones to other positions. Heros probably a little less depth as they go to second line than the first two. As for MD United, the two times I saw them this spring didn’t sub out 2 of their middies much, if at all, so I guess I would have to surmise they have the most need out of the teams in playoffs to add depth. Sorry I have not seen Crush this year but I’m sure someone else could comment there.

Has anyone gone through the registration process for AU and know what the team structure is like? Are there two MD teams? Or are they mixed grades?
