[RANKINGS] For the third straight year, the Dallas Texans are first in Soccer America's girls club rankings. The Texans again finish ahead of Eclipse Select. The So Cal Blues, Colorado Rush and Sting Soccer complete the top five. For the complete Top 30 ...

Yesterday: 2010 Best Boys Clubs

The Texans are the No. 1 team in Soccer America's Best Girls Clubs rankings for third year in a row even though they didn't win a title at the 2010 U.S. Youth Soccer National Championships. Their record-setting three titles in 2008 are enough to keep them on top.  For the third year in a row, though, the Texans did win a U.S. Youth Soccer National League title when they captured the U-15 age group. Goalie Abby Smith and midfielder Clarissa Wedemeyer were on U.S. team that finished third at the Concacaf Under-17 World Cup qualifying tournament.

Criteria: Soccer America selects the top 30 clubs based on success of their teams in national youth competitions over the last three years (2008-10) and the selection of their players to national teams in 2010.

    As I asked with the Boys team rankings, does SA make any effort to examine the player rosters for the older teams with these clubs to see how many players were actually developed at that club or if they were brought in from somewhere else? The inquiry is important because the true mark of a club's quality is if they are able to develop their own talent as opposed to the typical cutthroat tactic of releasing homegrown players in significant #s to make room for newly imported 'ready-made' players raided from another club. Knowing the % of players on older team rosters who have been with that club for say at least 3 years is an important consideration in this regard in terms of determining whether a club is amongst the "best" in bonafide player development or whether it is just a collector of all-star players? Parents of most club players would be interested to know such information as they search for the best development options for their child.
