On 6 March 2006, a simple site advertising the services of two coaches first appeared to the public.  A few days later, the AVID Soccer Equipment Review was posted with a single article.  It stayed that way for almost six months.

Fast forward a few years and the AVID Soccer News, facebook, twitter and Kindle have all been added.  We now have staff on both coasts and have covered everything from professional games to human foosball.  In the second year, we created our annual awards.  They have been named the Oscars of Soccer in several publications.  To that, we have added a series of shoot-outs and a writing contest. (Look for contest details soon.)

Overall, it has been an exciting time.  More than once, we have considered shuttering the doors as our player/testers aged out and left for college.  Each time, reader feedback and manufacturer interest has kept us going.  Now, as the largest family of its kind, we have made one final compromise and added advertising.  Not something we wanted to do, but it was the only way to keep expanding.

We would love to hear your thoughts on the last five year.  Let us know what you have gotten out of AVID Soccer and what you would like to see in the next year and beyond.
