  1. Alex, thanks for the mention of the U-12s. It’s confusing (because US Soccer), but this U-12 was an 05 Pre-Academy team, mostly. 04 U-12 Academy could not play, except for our four 05 players. The 7v7 format with a deep offside line was completely new for all the boys who play either play 9v9 (Academy) or 11v11 (Pre-Academy) as Bay Area has been slow to adopt 7v7. We were also in the group of death with FC Dallas, Villarreal and Philly (really big and talented). In a different group, we would have expected a better result.

    Overall our U-12 04 Academy team has done well this Academy year, even after promoting our best players to U-13.

      Thanks for the note! I’ll update the article to reflect those facts. Would it be ok to contact you via twitter for weekly updates on the U-12s?
