U18 Boys Youth Soccer

What can we say?

Fewer teams, better quality, look out.

U18 Boys soccer is no joke.

You know what also has to be earned? Coaches have to earn respect from their players and no player on the team will respect a coach who wants to play a returning college player who hasn't been on the team all season. The coach just acts like nobody can question his decisions, but it's clear he only cares about winning.

ummmmmmmmmmm, this is a team of 18 year olds, what are they supposed to do wait for the oranges at half. You want to play, GET BETTER. While your coaches goal is winning yours seems to be whining.

NJYS 1/4 finals, congratulations to all that made it this far! :)

Hudson vs Barrington-- in the least anticipated state cup game of all time, Hudson will win and Barrington will continue to never have won a game.

Marlton vs FC Copa--Blowout city, Marlton will win easily

PDA Messi vs MFA--no issues here MF will take care of business and by halftime they will be looking for the exits.

Marlboro vs Ironbound--in what should be the only competitive game of the day Marlboro should hold on to edge out Ironbound.

Your comments just show how immature and rude some youth coaches are, You're the kind of idiot coach that customers want to avoid and I'm pretty sure that I can guess what club you represent. You don't care at all about the kids, only winning and always use caps when you post, everyone will think you're important.

7:50 Caps are used to focus on importance. What club is your guess, this should be comical. As a previous post pointed out, you do seem to be a bit of a cry baby.

My guess is the previous posts are all from the same very mean spirited club who I'm sure will go out of business some day. Every coach who has any integrity leaves. TSF All caps

Ok, so the coach at TSF didnt play your son the minutes you wanted. You do realize that on every single team there are parents just like you that complain about their son or daughters minutes. There are only so many minutes to go around, my suggestion would have been to play on a team that fits your sons ability.

One way to solve this is to be the coach/asst or team manager. There is always bias when a coach/team manager has a kid on the team. Their playtime is hardly ever affected.

True at U8 - U 13 maybe but after that age and in many instances prior any good team has a paid coach and all parents are relegated to the parent sideline. At U18 if you are still complaining about playing time, you are to blame. You have your kid on the wrong team based on skill level.

Everyone knows that many parents get preferential treatment for their kids. I have never known a coaches child to be benched and how about friends of owners? Back door deals are always on the table. Money talks.

At U18 that has all gone away. Ok, if you are talking about 2% of the players then you have a point but I would rather focus on the norm not the exception to it.

Before u18 are the most important years for a player. A club shouldn't pretend their business is player development when it's really maximizing profits. People catch on eventually and the business suffers from a bad reputation.

Hello, McFly, is anyone in there? It is a youth sport and it is all about $. Then the good one's move onto college where it is again about money, your tuition payments. Reputations come and go, go ahead and listen to a U11 parent right now and try to explain to them the facts of what will happen to their journey in the future. They will not believe you.

I would tell them that if their son is a talented,serious player, move to another country where player development is taken seriously because they're not going to find it here.

And u would know that when they are 5 or 6

What are you talking about? Who said 5 or 6?

So if not at a young age you would propose going overseas at what age? It is a ridiculous argument either way.

Anonymous said...

and why do you think that? Why do you have a problem with people having a different opinion from you? Many people agree that the US does not develop kids, they just want to play the big kids that will give them wins' late bloomers are overlooked. Many talented players want to train overseas,

Define many.

Anonymous said...

Are you serious? Many means a large number or numerous. If you want exact. look up US youth players playing abroad.

Anonymous said...

I am with 8:51, what does many mean or now numerous? I can only think of two that did it. One it worked out for the other could not make a top teams youth roster. If there are many or numerous more I would be interested to hear your input.

You're obviously not interested in any other opinion but yours so discussion over.

So to be clear, you have no facts to back up your statement. Too bad, I was looking forward to it.

Ironbound wins!!!!! Great coaching

Anonymous said...

Great coaching? That mean they backed up the bus better than Marlboro did?

Anonymous said...

Marlton with the big win, this could be their year. Most teams decided not to play in this years state cup and even some of the teams that did enter are suspect at best but a state championship is a state championship. I know my sons coach wanted no part or regionals and really no part of nationals in Texas. The question now is when and where will they play to keep sharp for college? Scrimmages? Summer leagues? What do teams do? Those not playing in college will have no dedication and how do you even field a team.

No one cares about the U19 state cup Boomer. Not needed and the players have already checked out and are busy picking out their college teams gear. Their biggest goal between now and August is to not get hurt.

I wouldn't say no one cares but TBH very few do. Maybe the coaches who are trying to build their resumes so they can bump up their hourly training rate care. If it were up to me I would take the group of players that will be playing in college in a designated area and mix up the players and create a summer league. Put 22 on a team, split time evenly and make 4 teams. Just need someone to have a field or two. Everyone will play, stay in shape, and very little travel as you can combine North and Central Jersey or Central and South Jersey or something like that.

I know it will not happen, not enough money is involved.
