Review for De Anza Force Soccer Club Inc, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Money making machine with no intent of developing players! Non-profit ? Not at all!!!
Number of teams almost doubled, but number of fields to practice remained the same. Hence 4 - 5 teams practice on one field at the same time, while the younger teams who pay around $1000 a season practice on the sidelines. Most players even on older teams have problems regarding positioning. Practices are always on quarter a field, so come match day players are completely lost so far as positioning is concerned. As a result most teams perform poorly especially at the younger age levels. Most of the younger teams with the exception of a few are almost always at the bottom rung of the league. The older teams which do well usually have players who were not groomed by The Force from a young age, but players The Force has "filched" from other clubs who have groomed them. In my opinion parents will ultimately catch on and understand what a complete waste of time and money this organization is. I have seen talented young players from other clubs who come here and change and become "De Anza Forced". My very own verb for performing poorly despite being talented!
Parents - please take my advice and stay away, The Force is not at all what it is made it to be. Take it from a parent who has seen it all....
Since this is supposedly a non-profit organization focus should be on player development NOT $ !

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

1. Limit number of teams so that players can practice on a proper field, instead of 5 teams practicing on one filed at the same time, and younger teams practicing along sidelines. 2. Do not overextend coaches. Some coaches have 4 or 5 teams! 3. Coaches who consistently perform badly, should be trained further or should be replaced. There are coaches who manage multiple teams, with every one of these teams being in the bottom of the league.
