Glasses or not it's poor business for the coach to not openly communicate the play time issue honestly with the parents and player. Coach should have said Little Tommy isn't playing because he's not good enough. If you have another team we will let him go. If you don't you should start looking for one because we are moving on without him. To bench a kid and keep quiet is an awful coaching practice.
9:57 you are correct. However, in the scenario that was given I am more apt to believe that the parent heard what he/she wanted to hear. I put full responsibility on the parent because after one discussion with the coach he still played 5 minutes. Seeing is believing! I can only assume that it is over now and this boy has found a new team.
New to this forum. Does anyone know anything about the U16 MFA team?
Yes, I know about the U16 MFA team. It currently has 16 committed players, most from the '99 Academy team and some kids from the '98 team. Also picked up a couple of kids from PDA and other good teams. This team last played together in the Delco Cup and made it to the finals in top bracket, and also played in the National final of Super Y a couple of summers ago. Should be a very competitive team in EDP. Think they are looking to add 2-3 more players.
MF has not been mentioned on this site and within 40 minutes you get an answer? That is because you answered your own question. You are weird.
Why would someone pay MF Academy prices and not get the Academy benefits? You should just call yourself Cranbury again.
Match Fit, I wish you the best of luck, but really are you selling what you did a year ago and a couple of summers ago? You are not even close to having the same team and you lost key players. I am sure you will be fine, but take a step back before NJX comes on here telling us how good they were years ago too. Again, good luck but please dont act like NJX or pretend not to be looking for players. Be better.
Wow, 26minutes after my post I have 3 sngry replies. And I am weird? Yes a couple of players are not with the team from back then but we picked up a few. Not looking to fight, call MF and check, we are looking for 2-3 more players just like every other team at this stage. See you all in the Spring and good luck with your high school seasons!
No, you were called out on asking the question and then in return answering it. Yes you did.
Do you know any way that I could prove you wrong? If so I would be happy to do it.
To 1:25's point. MF has not been discussed on this forum and in 1/2 hour 2 MF posts one answering the other appeared. I, like 1:25 and the prior poster find it to be very fishy and if it stinks like fish it is fish. Dont worry, you are not the first to try, you just didnt do a good job at it. So, to answer your question, no I do not think there is a way to prove it and I would not try. Lets just move on.
In defense of 12:22, I'm 11:40. My son plays in PA now and is looking for a new team. I see the MFA trains in Mercer County and that's not a terrible commute to make if the MFA team is a good one. So thank you 12:22 for your input. I probably will avoid using this forum in the future. Good luck all.
We have a few kids from PA., Bucks County area. May help with the commute if you decide to give MF a shot.
Lol. U did it again.
4:02 you should give MF a try. Very good organization and very good coaches. My son played there and we liked very much. Only left because the commute was a bit too far.
MF a good organization you say. Please give some examples of how they are. What has MF done to gain that reputation in your mind.
Everyone has a different experience. For us, was the fact that my son enjoyed playing with the kids there, team was good, my son liked his coach very much and he thought he was very good. Also, everyone from the president, DOC and other coaches knew who your kid was. We did not few our kid was just a number.
Match Fit does not have a strong reputation. They do have a reputation for taking entire teams and calling them theirs. Not much development going on with that business model. Fake academy at best.
And what academy do you know develops a good number of their players. Most players when they go to an academy already have the soccer skills and that is how they were able to make the academy team in the first place. If you check the roster of Red Bulls,PDA, NJCSA, CSA most of their players come from somewhere else within the pass one or two seasons.
Point was, I believe, that MF would always take a team and call it theirs while RB, PDA would take individual players. If you are paying you are not in a real academy system.
MF was officially kicked out form the academy system last year
Wrong you are.
Will you explain please because I was told that Match Fit will continue as a club but has lost academy status.
To be an academy team at Match Fit, there has to be no cost to the player. See Red Bulls. For the most part they told everyone that they would not be on an academy team any longer but the U15 boys for example pay nothing and are in the academy system.
As an update, Stronghold did add some additional players and will be better then ever. Added resources will allow players to compete to even be on the game day roster. Looking forward to HS season but really cant wait until it is over.
Waw, better then ever. Our teams better watch out now!!!
stronghold is pre-season favorite to win it all
Stronghold is the greatest. Just ask them!
Doubt if above posts are from stronghold, just the usual of someone trying to stir things up
I agree that they are all not from SSC, but to think that none of them are is naive. Stronghold does think they are at the top, just speak to them and they will tell you.
Any HS teams projected to be elite this year?
CBA is supposed to have a very good team this fall.
Gill St. Bernard should be a team that no one will want to play. Good talent, work well together.
Montclair High... Loads of SDFC and TSF players of all ages.
That makes sense 1:08, good luck to Montclair HS.
Montclair HS boys are doing so far this season 3-0
West Orange vs Montclair this Tuesday. Both are 4-0 I believe. Should be an interesting game. Both sides carry SDFC, TSF, PDA players....
What is the big deal about TSF and PDA non academy players? They are fine but nothing special.
They're good club players and when you put them all together, the results are interesting.
Depends if the coach plays them. Some HS coaches play Sr's and Jr's regardless of skill level. Some HS coaches play the big kids, some look for speed and dont care about footwork. Most HS coaches dont know where to play them and put defenders at forward. Comical.
True. HS soccer is very different from club. HS Coaches try to make up for lack of skill with physical play. I've seen good players get injured playing HS soccer.
Montclair High school boys now 5-0
Go Montclair HS!!!!
Regarding post above asking about tsf "non-academy" players. tsf isn't an academy - even if they use the term - so all their players are non-academy.
No kidding it says TSF and PDA non academy players.
They have great players but the coach is also excellent. He's had winning teams for about 20 yrs.
PDA is an official academy so they have academy players and non-academy players. TSF just pretends they're an official academy but don't let them fool you.
