Monday Morning Quarterback / AAA question
« Last post by Pantherdaddy on Today at 07:11:35 am »
I can't remember where I saw this but was the AAA going to set amount of activities on players to participate in this summer.  For instance, each kid can only participate in 8 team camps for fb and or 8 bb team camps, or 8 baseball games??

Everyone will be playing for the two seed this year.  No one will have a chance to touch the Tigers this season.  They will be an exciting team to watch every Friday night, and I look forward to being there every Friday night.

Arkansas High School Soccer / Re: 6a Playoff Predictions

Mtn. Home only played that style of play in 3 games this season  Hall, Russellville, and Siloam Springs.  They played a more offensive style this year than in some others I've seen.  They do sub a lot.  The coach subs new midfielders every 5-10 minutes in some games.  Some games more than others.  He says its to stay fresh.  He also says it slows the game down when they play a team who is dominating possession.  Those are the games he seems to sub the most.  I have mentioned to him that it breaks up rhythm to sub that much, he agrees but says he will take the trade off of being fresher when his team is having to defend more in a match and fatigues quicker.

I know him pretty good.  He has worked very hard to develop soccer in a community that doesn't support it.  The school doesn't seem to want it either although they jumped on board more this year with a new AD.  Mtn. Home is in the middle of nowhere.  The club can't consistently field travel teams because parents don't want to drive 2-3 hours every time they play.  They don't have the Hispanic influence that a Siloam or Russellville has.  They do a lot of academy stuff with not many kids.  Not many families move in.  The city does not keep up the fields, so that falls on the club.  The fields are embarrassing.  baseball fields are kept up nicely(baseball town).  The president of the club has recently resigned largely because of the lack of commitment.   Brian has spent a lot of time coaching youth kids but there just aren't enough people doing it.  The result of these factors is a small pool of experienced players to choose from for high school.  So the coaches have to recruit basketball and football players to fill in with the club kids, and develop them.  I think this is why you see them play the style they do against the better programs.  I think it's their only chance against the Siloam Springs of the state.

Congratulations to Siloam Springs on a great year.  It was fun to watch both of your teams play.  You have a fantastic club and high school program.

Great explanation.  Thank you for the informative reply. Definitely helps paint a more understanding picture. Hopefully they will continue to grow and the community will grow in their appreciation for the sport.

Thank you for the kind words about the Siloam program.

Then they shouldn't complain when the program is not up to snuff. A lot of people say they want to win.  Some are not smart enough to realize that winning comes with a price. Blood sweat and tears. And to quote the Nature boy if you wanna walk that isle you gotta pay the price woohoo. Lol

But little Johnny and little Suzie are natural born all-star players that dont need to work that hard or need any motivation
