    Wow, didn't even know that was happening. I'm guessing this wasn't "open" to the public, huh?

    I don't know if that tells us more about our U-18 squad or the US U-17 group, but either way I'm liking where the Academy program is headed.

    Yeah, families only...though Chris got in amongst them!

    I just talked with Darren Sawatzky and he helped me put names to the photos. So the slideshow is updated and we can start learning who is whom...

    One of the few areas Sounders can circumvent MLS' parity. I like where this is going and expect a top 3 MLS academy in 3 years with Greater Seattle's talent and Sounders financial strength.

    Any chance we can get a video of the game?


    Also, GS, is there any way we can get some kind of clarity in terms of the new homegrown player rules? there seems to be quite a bit of confusion about who/how many we can sign. Thanks!

    I don't know of any video available online.

    A player is 'home grown' and stays 'home grown' as long as he practices 80 times with us over a calendar year.

    I found this:

    Ahhh, thanks for posting that!

    But dammit, I just realized I will be in LA when they play at Starfire next week. I'd been looking forward to going to support.

    I can't wait to see what kind of gems this program turns out. The 3-3 draw with the USA squad is amazing! Who knows maybe in 4 years we'll uncover the next messiah of US soccer.

    Not bad. U15/16 is currently 1st in their division and U17/18 is second in theirs.

    That must be Sergio's "I'm about to get a cleat to the face" look

    Yoshou,

    If you get a chance to get out and see the boys play I think you'd be impressed. The U18 team is easily one of the best youth teams I've ever seen. Some of the combination play in the early part of the San Jose game was phenomenal. I would be surprised if they lost a game in league competition.

    Combined the clubs (U16 & U18) are 7 wins 3 draws and 1 loss in USSDA play this fall.

    U16 have the lone loss, but they also have a 5-0-1 record. U18's are undefeated but are 2-3-0.
