**Update** In July of 2016 “the Forum” was seemingly maliciously taken down and the entire database was deleted. Although much of what is on the forum was gossipy/chatty/catty talk, there was so much valuable information shared and it’s a shame that it’s all been deleted. Click here to read the post. Dominic rallied and started a new site on a new platform which is now better than ever (although the historical information is gone forever). By the way, there is a poster on the new site named “So Cal Soccer Mom”… but it’s not me 🙂 Click here to go to the new site.
When Big Soccer Girl first started playing club at U9 I heard people talking about “The Forum” and I had no idea what they were talking about. I finally asked someone and they gave me the website www.socalsoccer.com and I’ve been hooked ever since.
The forum is all So Cal Soccer all the time and filled with great information along with rumors, innuendos and silly arguments. The owner, Dominic, does a great job keeping everything running smoothly and although I rarely post anything, I’ve learned so much by reading what others say. Unofficial rankings, reviews and gossip all help to understand what is going on in the youth Soccer world. When the SCDSL was first announced, I already knew about it from reading on the forum. Friendlies are often advertised on the forum and nowhere else. It’s also a great place to make connections with other soccer parents.
Of course information isn’t always reliable, but it’s better than nothing and it’s often quite amusing. Take everything with a grain of salt and you’ll be just fine. Go check it out…just be careful, it can be addicting!
