    Moved from California last month, need to find GOOD teams for my son (2008) and daughter (2010). Preferably west side of town. Thanks.

    You should look at Calcio I believe they are located in the west valley and they have a pretty solid 08 team, although I am not sure if they have a girls team. If not try out phoenix rising they have a west valley team.

    They lost their 08 team. They have a 2/3 team combined. They have lost a good 25% of their players since covid.

    Correct on the 1st sentence not sure about the rest. Calcio Black 2008 coached by David Meadows is now Phoenix Rising West Valley 2008 still coached by David Meadows. They will practice outside of State Farm Stadium in Glendale . They won State League 1 going undefeated so they’ll be in APL next season. Very good, very fast team.

    Rising West Valley also has a 2010 girls team not sure how strong though.

    My advice would be to look for good coaches in your area rather than a good club. A coach can make or break your child. Look for someone with a known good reputation. This is the perfect forum to do it. Clubs can matter if you want ECNL, DA, etc. Ultimately it comes down to good coaching though and a club should be secondary.

    I am not sure what are the best options relative where you are.
