I'm not surprised about the offer and congratulations. Getting the exposure is so helpful. For kids that may be on a second team with the talent to play at the next level.... it's so tough to be seen. Especially if you're not getting much help from t

All I can say is that since joining FCKC and my daughter playing 3 games, she has been made 3 scholarship offers and 3 other trips scheduled. The coaches have been the best help as compared to where we came from!

Lots of stuff in here and interesting takes 1. Playing out of the back: is the correct way to do it even with High pressure - problem is too many kids even at the DA level don't have the confidence or skill to handle the pressure in the back. This

Then would agree Des Moines and Omaha would both be great locations. Very nice cities, easy to get around. Omaha has a great downtown. Hit the zoo in the afternoon for a team activity, etc.

Ditto, we like the Des Moines Spring tourney. Close, well maintained grass fields, economically priced hotels and food. Their downtown area is awesome and very pedestrian friendly. We walked around, had lunch during our games and then went back ou

Des Moines is a really nice place to travel to for tournaments, esp. if you're just looking for a Silver level tournament. Close location, great fields, good prices for hotels, food, etc.

Thanks for the info. This is a U11/U12 D4 team at Heartland if it makes a difference with the recommendations.

Depends on what age and level you are looking for. When our kids were younger, Omaha had a couple tournaments that we enjoyed. Not ELITE level competition on whole, but if you were anything below that, good competition, easy drive, decent lodging

I'm sure quite a few (especially those that had younger Legends players) will feel the pain of "sticking to your guns" in a 9-0 loss. The poor coach wears it like a badge of honor (and in some sick manner is vindicated in the beating) that
