Good luck to our Louisiana teams (LaFire U17, LaFire U18 and CYSA U19 Gunners) traveling to play (and hopefully win) at the Disney Showcase. I am confident these teams will play good soccer and represent Louisiana well. Many of the players on these teams are looking to play at the next level and are using this venue together with their high school resumes to do so. For those looking to play in college, this is big and we wish them a good showing.

Did these players play HS soccer as well and if so, were there any eligibility issues? Did a HS coach go coach this tournament? I’m asking because we are trying to do a HS Showcase during Thanksgiving this year and all the parents, coaches, athletic directors seem to really be worried since the rules keep changing.

Most if not all of the players played HS as well, in fact, many of them played in the high school state championships. There are teams traveling to the Disney showcase again this year, teams full of players who play high school as well, stop worrying, follow the rules and you are fine.
We were wondering on the eligibility issues also for next year’s tournament.
Showcases and ODP are allowed for high school players. We went to a great showcase in Austin (Round Rock), TX this last November where there were a lot of Texas, OK college coaches. It was called the Lonestar Showcase, boys weekend if you are interested.
