I'm 100% fine with that because I'm tired of revolving door practices for sake of other sports. Commitment to practice makes the difference between winning and losing. That being said, I wonder if they will make exceptions for school related activi

My kid went to two ID camps this month. One Private D2 one Public D2. I have noticed that some of the local private D2s are struggling a little (girls). Rockhurst does well so it is not 100%. When you look at costs I wonder if the Public's get fi

I went to the FCKC DA meeting last night. I thought it was a good meeting and informative about many areas except for the ones that matter the most. They still don't know actual cost, which is the biggest elephant in the room. Here are the Parent

The good news is that the Grandview fields and the fields by the national training center will be available for Heartland league play starting in the fall.

Good news bad news from the Spring season schedules, Good news it looks like they followed through to get rid of the ridiculous quarter sized mini fields for U9/U10 games. Back to the half fields, which will be a relief for most. Bad news is it do

Having been through high school soccer on the men's side for the past several years with two kids, I can say the worst thing about it is the politics, followed by coaches that don't have a clue about the game. It is what it is, and I always encourag

Hmmm, sounds real similar to a thing called "life". Most of us have suffered through lousy bosses ... or that college professor that expects you to hit the class running on day one and shows no mercy or assistance throughout the semester.

Every school is different. Some the conditioning is tough. Some the bad players are tough. Some the politics are tough. Over the years you hear lots of stories. Years ago there was supposedly a coach that said you had to be able to juggle 100 tim
