Glad I will be able to help. First you have to try out for your state Olympic Development Program. If you are good enough to make it there, you join a state team that competes against teams from all 50 states. From this, the best players are selected for Regional Teams. There are four regions, and they compete against eachother and big-name teams in tournaments. From this, the very best players are picked for US National Youth Teams. Understand?

What's up man? ey, I can dream no? I'm just asking around since I've been training alot these days. I'm gonna try out for a club next week here probably U-17 or U-18 (I'm 15 years old) and I'm probably gonna go out for my HS team. Most likely I'll just play for my college later on and who knows.. the door for the MLS may be open.

jbmarine7, what do you think of this club? check out the website at www.strikeforcesoccer.com

Thanks for all the help mate.

Hehe, appreciate the love mate. I used to destroy kiddies back when I was ten years old in the YMCA league.

Btw, since we're on the topic of playing football what boots do you use? .. and how come you still haven't gotten MSN messanger?

About the boots... I play with Umbro boots, but to be honest I have no idea what specific model they are (I've had them for almost two years now, and they were a gift from my girlfriend). My current goalkeeper gloves they wear out pretty fast are Topper, a Brasilian brand; and my old ones were Uhlsport.

About the MSN Messenger... because I'm stubborn, I guess.

Good stuff, man. However, you should seriously think about downloading MSN messanger as it would kick ass to have another person to talk about Brazilian football. It's only me, Roberto Gallo and Ivan Palmer who talk about the Brasileirao. Trust me, the number of Xtratimers on MSN is a large number.

Personally, I'm struggling with how cool it is how that page is brought up in I.E. :eekani: Anyways, I don't know how I feel about that club. I suppose you should check out their training complex and coaches, and make a decision based on that.
