    Um...if all except one of those girls were born in 2013, they’re all only 6 years old!

    I have a feeling that 2003 is the correct year.

    How many of those players play in the ECNL vs. the DA?

    Newman add to that almost every player are from the same group of clubs this rotation as well previously groups of players. It’s like 7-8 top clubs.
    do we scout outside of these top clubs.
    if you don’t live in those areas then your chances seem to be minimal to be scouted at.
