Taking the entire state of California into consideration, where would you recommend someone live who...
  • Has no kids (school system doesn't factor into my decision)
  • Is progressive and wants a progressive/liberal area
  • Wants an arts community (could be a small one, but it's there)
  • Wants a low-crime area
  • Is open to cities or towns
  • Is in their early 40s
  • Would be renting, not buying
  • Wants a scenic area with nature trails, parks, close by
  • Has a car but would like to live in a walkable place where there are stores, coffeehouse, etc. nearby
  • Can take/leave public transit -- if the area has it, great, if not, that's ok too

Senno just learned yesterday that he might be going to Camarillo in 2 weeks to witness the CJSL under 11 Amazons kick some little girl booty down there. I gotta warn ya we are bringing down the President's Cup 2012 Champeens for under 10's (moving up a class this year as a team). So if you wanna bet 1 rep on the tourney winner I will take that bet.

Maybe I will stop into Carpinteria and take a gander of what you all got going on if there's time.

If you have little money, those athletic scholarships are very handy.

All three kids, not kids anymore, but, they stay in contact with the friends they made playing soccer, it is a great thing for the young'uns and has made all the driving we (mostly mom) did all over CA and Nevada for tournaments and games.
The star of the team projects like that. If my niece decides to concentrate on soccer she might. She's playing every sport offered at Lincoln Elementary, and cheerleading on the side in 5th grade. This is her 3rd year on a club team, though. And we take a little Fresno/Clovis on the road to kick butt and take names. I go for fun sometimes, and sometimes to drive as my bil is old(er) and tired after a week driving around the valley from Sacto to Bakersfield.

Good on ya. As I overheard once, a mother complaining about all the driving, and the answer comes back to her, "Treasure it, too soon your child will be 18 those times in the car, singing, telling jokes, being a family together on a roadtrip, will be over.

My wife would get off work, load the SUV with girls, and off that night to Las Vegas, or Elko, Or Yerington, or San Bernardino, or Fresno, or Bakers field,, etc.

The trick to making them good and to love the sport is to not be one of those dreaded "little league parents",, "You missed that kick, you are a bad person"
