Brandi Chastain - "I honestly think that sometimes I want to shake the people in charge because it is not about you. It is about these kids having this experience because they cannot get it back."
Landon Donovan - "It is difficult because some of my best times were playing high school soccer. It wasnt the best for my development, but it was some of the best times. There is still a place for kids who want to play high school soccer, but I think the elite players are going to shift to playing against other elite players. That is the only way you make the game better and better."
- "I think the most important thing is that we are identifying enough talented players. I played on a club team with four or five players more talented than I was, but never would've had a chance to make it some for their own doing but others because there was no system in place to recognize the kids. My hope is that we can start identifying more kids and giving more kids an opportunity."
