Monroe vs Manalapan in the sectional finals. What is better to win, State Sectionals or your tournament.

Since this is set up for discussion of high school soccer for both boys and girls high school soccer across REGION I, could people posting please indicate which state and fully spell out the schools they're discussing? And specify whether you're talking about a boys team or girls team? I really do believe that we, as parents, have a lot of common ground across state lines and some issues we might be able to discuss with some ability to make some positive changes in high school soccer. Some parents discussed a rather lame style of soccer played in their state and suggested that the coaches need to go. Some parents discussed poor reffing in their state..or district? Player safety is a hot button issue in the media and yet, we talk about whether parents should get involved. How involved and what kind of voice do we have? I very much agree that parents who lurk around the coaches lobbying for their individual players should be permanently assigned to chase balls from the sidelines! But, parents should be able to get together and discuss issues like how much rough play is being allowed, whether or not their state's governing body for high school athletics operates with any level of transparency, how we improve the recruiting process so that parents aren't getting fleeced and players stressed and how about a discussion over ways we can boost press coverage of soccer? Additionally, how do local sportswriters determine all-region or all-state teams? What's fair or ridiculous about the process?

As I understand it, the coach of the team selects the players for All County, All State and other awards. I don't think this is the best way. Other coaches in the league should also vote on who they think deserves recognition.

I'm sorry but I just read the NJ.com first team, second team, etc. All State Selections. Funny, but except for 1 or 2 players, nobody south of middle New Jersey is ever selected. It's like that part of the state downward doesn't exist as far as these so-called sports reporters are concerned. It's a shame because there is a lot of talent and these players aren't getting the recognition they deserve.

Getting rid of the HS coach is probably impossible. These jobs pay from 8 thou to 10+ thou for doing not much and they are generally plums given to those with connections.
In our town, the guy has years of teaching moving districts because he can't get tenure, and his mom is big in a youth league and the local club. My child suffered because of it, and he'll overcome it. But even with clear violations of every basic rule of teaching kids, and specific school rules about sports teams, he is still coaching.
