Seems we are creating quite a conversation piece in the Iowa soccer community, keep it up. At least people are starting to think about things and maybe be the better for it. As for us, we will keep looking to the future and building our group one player, one team one club at a time. It's not about this club or that club or you or me or what nationality you are or what your favorite professional club is.
It's building a community! Yes a soccer community, but also so much more. What if there was a group open to anyone? No, really open to anyone! What if there was a group more concerned with developing players for the players good instead of the coaches or club's benefit? What if there was a group that was purchasing more field space and their practices were open to literally anyone that showed up? Looking out for each other instead of worrying someone was going to steal a player that really isn't my property to begin with. Maybe working together to help a player be better. Playing a few friendly games on a Holiday and sharing your favorite family dish with each other! That's a soccer community!
That's what I want to be a part of and that's what we should be building!

Not sure of the author of this title, just saw this somewhere, still a great saying!
Thanks to Craig and Erick from USSSA Soccer for spending a few days with us in Iowa and all the information and ideas and future planning they are giving us. Our meetings brought in some new and old friends and opened some eyes. Things are heading in the right direction to the benefit of everyone involved! The end result? Better skilled and prepared players for the sport we love.

Excitement and cheering or screaming at players and referees! Players that can adapt to their opponents and changing field conditions or just running within their "area" and no idea of how or when to do anything else!
This year will mark my 40th season being involved in soccer either as a player, referee or coach. often as all three at the same time and adding soccer parent/grandparent into the mix for 5 of our own and currently 3 grandchildren playing. And through the years I believe I have seen it all from the best to the worst you can imagine happen on the field. Unfortunately the bad stands out but in reality the moments of brilliance likely equal the moments of stupidity! And I know along the way I have never regretted being a part of this wonder game.
This is an open forum and you are welcome to comment, agree, disagree, join us or ignore us; it's still a free country and I will defend your right to play soccer anywhere you want to!
