JU in a close oneSTA over RageNJSA over Marlboro
MF win v JUSTA win v RAGENJSA win v Marlboro
MF could win, Rage/STA good game, Marlboro over NJSA, unless NJSA has some carding tricks up their US Club sleeves.
Will JU be able to use their guest players ?
This is US Club NJ Cup, the answer is yes. This can be a different roster
NJSA will beat Marlboro handily. Some extra incentive here.
My daughter is on 3 (three) rosters of various teams. Only pay for the one, and kinda guest plays for the others when she shows up. unfair for team, and unfair for opposing teams? Great for her.
^^^Sounds like a pot stirrer, don't bite. This place is so bad. Peace!
MJSA should beat Marlboro. Large club team against small town team.Odds against Marlboro and all the small low cost town teams.
I hear MJSA is awesome.
Mjsa? M? Mew Jersey?
i give marlboro and MLU credit for staying in the top 10 even though they keep losing players to the academies. TC, Wall, TR, Freehold and other towns have some very successful teams in the U15/U16/U17 ages. you seem to forgot that almost all players started in town teams. the training they got there, helped get them on the academy teams.
JU lose again 1-0 to MF
Nice win MF. Too bad the team will be broken apart when tryouts end; you were finally starting to mesh as a team.
I guess the guest players couldn't make it Friday night to help JU. Too bad. #4 in the nation beat by the little "B" team that could. Must have been some irate JU parents that night. (Well worse then usual that is.) LOL
Nice game MF. As for the MF parents...Get some class. You're obnoxious and pathetic. But thats is to expect from the MF parents of this age group. Get your facts straight before you post about a guest player. What a joke.
MF parents are the worst, but the program the best. ecnl will ruin them even more. If parents where not so .....My daughter might be there, but not with this bunch.
Lets just call this the MF blog from now on.Sure there will be many posts until next seasons 7-0 Mercy game against PDA O'R. As a Crush parent who has seen us play both MF teams and PDA in the last year I can say MFit wins hands down in the obnoxious parent category. Enjoy big girl soccer next year and watch the team fall apart watch the parents cry and watch the blog post slow down and then stop. Somebody please guess what happens next........ I can tell you no crush girls will be joining the joke of NJ Soccer 2014
I enjoyed the story about the Thunder parents taunting the Surge parents at the end of their tournament win. “that’s why we will be ECNL!” They did beat Watchung Hills in the group stage to make the final so they might well be ready to take on Stars of Mass
Wouldn't let my daughter near that MF disaster. The try outs should make for a great reality show. "The housewives of MF".
where are the tryouts? Thompson “Park” , Cross Farm “Park”. Hope they have a permit from towns and recreation so they can hold their “National League” tryouts. PDA must be shaking in their boots. I have never seen a clearer case of biting off more than you can chew. What 14 team will become the ECNL team? What will happen to the players that don’t make the team? Will they finally realize they have been conned by directors looking for a quick buck? So many questions for a club with no facility, no direction, no philosophy and no hope. Welcome to ECNL..PDA are waiting for you I think whoever posted 7-0 was being nice
You guys are terrible. Like little children. If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. It comes off as insecurity. It's everyone else on here speculating about this ECNL team. Do you really think that a MF parent was chanting ECNL! ECNL!?? Come on! Grow up. Don't be so gullible. I'm sure they are just hoping to stay middle of the pack at best.
I agree leave the super nice MF parents alone. They have been nothing but humble, gloating after every league, state cup and tournament win. They have been nothing but classy yelling at other MF parents on the side line. I personally can’t wait to hear about all Matchfit NY League result wins this weekend. I will be refreshing my browser all Monday morning. Hope you are enjoying the trips to Long Island to play JAGS level 2 teams
To break some tension I would like to wish Matchfit good luck in the ECNL. I have a daughter on the U14 & U18 girls SJ Barons and have watched leagues being formed and clubs grow. I am proud of what the Baron coaches have done for my daughters to date and with college showcasing being the ultimate goal I can say results at this age still are not key. Being at the right club is what is required and after watching soccer in NJ for the last 10 years this is what I see- There are 5 brackets for consideration for tryouts depending on the level of soccer you are looking to play in college. Bracket 1 (1 Club). for obvious reasons PDA ECNL stands alone. Bracket 2 Clubs (5 Clubs) with multiple high level teams with regional league and showcasing ability and history. SJ Barons (Not biased just honest) but we give Regional league and tournament play plus our awesome facility. TSF boys teams are stronger but the girls seem to be improving and give good guaranteed showcasing options, Matchfit ECNL wildcard at this point but should showcase just fine they will form teams of a high level. Jersey United, who are in every league and quality event we attend, multiple HS age teams. PDA south. Ugly step sister to the real deal but still carry quality and will use their name to get into events. Their teams carry a more direct style of play than the north teams. Bracket 3 (5 Clubs) Clubs yet to prove. FC Copa. Inconsistency in quality and parent coaching holds this club back but this club is the strongest in bracket 3. NJSA. Despite academy status on the boys side the girls seems to be neglected with not many teams surviving through U18 They have had to dip into Highland to inherit quality. NJ Stallions. Been around a while as a club failing most of the time. They have just poached a few teams to add quality the club with their 14s also being a very strong team giving the club an improved backbone. Parsippany. This club has dropped off dramatically but carries good regional play options. Matchfit NPL. The level of these teams will drop but they will still give good regional play options Bracket 4.(3 clubs) New and yet to prove. FC Crush. Started strong but with no infrastructure and staff carrying ability to take the teams away from the club shows major kinks in the armor. NJ Rush. Already have good teams but too early to tell how this will play out. Bracket 5. (3 Clubs)Less committed options. STA/ Morris United. Town program with next to no high school teams and no quality. Seems to be a nice option for young players. Rage FC- Young club trying to do some good things but yet to get going. Princeton SC. Some strong younger teams but yet to graduate any quality and a club who will always have a parent running the club no real proven history at this point. Bracket 6 Other notables. MT Laurel, Arsenal, Mt. Olive.Good luck this tryout season. All said and done the reason why we have stayed is at SJ is my daughters have fun.
This is all so transparent. Whichever club shows a little success, lets GET THEM! Attack! Oooo Thunder won two big games, let make fun of their parents! I thought it was the JU parents we were hating on currently? Then it was Copa we were making fun off. Pathetic. It seems like such uncertainty and nervousness to figure out where you want your kids. Crush parent - I'd watch what I say. I know for a fact that a few parents are only NOT coming because it's too far. I've talked to a few while trying to decide what to do with my child. You are in no place to come on here and talk crap. Your team is tanking in the premier league.ECNL believes that Match Fit does have proper facilities, direction, philosophy and hope. Don't be an idiot. That's why they were admitted. You can't argue with that. What is the joke? I don't get it? Successful teams, especially the older girls, growth occurring. What exactly is the problem? You all sit on here and make fun of NJSA because they don't have points. Have they been in any tournaments lately????? Don't be a fool. They are tearing up the NPL. Which btw doesn't have Jags level 2 teams on Long Island. Brentwood? HBC? No different than your EDP leagues that you accue all those crazy points for. That's whats keeping you all in the top 10 where half of you don't deserve to be.We can't make fun of the girls who are doing well, so let's go after the parents. Classic. I have never seen MF parents come on here and gloat. Find me the post where they wrote about beating JU????? How can you even say that when half the time it's some loser watching the scoreboard online, running on here and causing trouble. Do you really think Thunder parents were chanting and taunting??? Come on... it's someone making up stories. They ALL know that their team is average at best right now. That's why beating JU was so exciting. No one has ever claimed to be the next OReilly. They are the best team in the nation. They are the best team at PDA. I'm sure they will tramble MF like they tramble the other ECNL team... and your teams.My daughter will be at tryouts. She has many friends at MF, and yes, their parents have been very nice too! All soccer parents are nuts when their kids are on the pitch. If you are not impressed with the ECNL, then don't come. Lets see what happens. When I didn't have a chance at ECNL I saw holes in the system, and I still do. But now we have a chance and we are going to take it. It's not the end all be all, but it's more promising where my daughter is now.Lets see how long we can go on here only positing news, questions, or positive comments. Look at yourselves... you make fun of other parents, and look what you are writing under an anon disguise.
Welcome to ecnl. Above posters are what you will get next year. So , bring out the check book, make-up case, and huge suv's or little bmw's.Teams do not stand a chance. MF teams at the older ages u-16, u-17 have been top 1-3 for years , now that all goes away. Money , Money, Money and more money. Most will give it a try just to lose a year of soccer/development and exposure for your daughter as she leaves to jion yet another team, or better yet plays on the B team at u-16.what college coach comes to watch a B team? D3 lol still lolnot going or trying to change anyone's minds on ecnl on this blog,but sometimes bigger and more expensive is not always what it is promised.
Why both with MF at all. PDA is #1 girls program in the country -- enough said. Go tryout for O'Reilly and if you don't make that team you can play on their new U15G team next year in the north (it's on their website).
5:37 I thought the two posters above you actually made a lot sense. Can you explain your comment "MF teams at the older ages u-16, u-17 have been top 1-3 for years , now that all goes away". why does that go away? Do you mean because now they will have more competition? That's like keeping your kid in the average math class because they get A's instead of making them work hard for B's in the advanced class. " lose a year of soccer/development and exposure for your daughter" What does this mean? Because MF has ECNL now the training will be different? I've thought PDA needed to add another team for years. They are doing it now to detract talent from trying out at MF. Smart move on their part. I wonder if it will pan out.
A PDA "b" team is just in it for the money, just like all the other clubs with multiple teams at same age. People may go there for the PDA name/prestige, etc. But their kid will not be looked at since it's the 'a' teams they want.
this stuff just keeps getting better and bett7er.
Playing for PDA second team will still get you great training and exposure to college coaches. Anything MF wants to do; PDA all ready does better.
8:18 Are you a 5 year old? "Anything MF wants to; PDA all ready does better"?? My daddy is bigger than your daddy." Nah nah. Grow up. Who cares. There is soccer for everyone. Enjoy!
Hold on, if you are not on PDA O'Reilly, then you are all on a B team, as there is no team in this region that can compete with them. Not so bad to be #2.
B teams help finanace the A team.Sure they get to train etc.. but 2nd level brackets and tourneys get you no where.
well after they roster the MF ECNL team, since most of the town teams have folded, the only high level places to play in Ocean and Monmouth Counties are going to be on the B teams for Match Fit and PDA.anyone see it differently?
Best bet: go to a "non folded" still existing town team. All the ECNL spots are already taken. Thanks to mommy and daddy buddying up to those in charge.
Stupid stupid statements. If you are a good team, you will be seen. If you are a good player, you will be seen. End of story.
In a fair world this is true. However, the world isn't fair so this is quite a naive statement when politics keep good players from being seen. It happens all the time. It's too bad.

What is the goal? Be roster-ed on the best team possible? Actually play in games on best tyeam possible? Start on best team possible? Be a star on best team possible?
Start on the best team possible. EZ question.
I heard njsa scheduled a game the day of mf tryouts do the girls couldn't go
State Cup vs Marlboro. oops
Hope that doesn't backfire and both teams have girls that don't come to the game!But tryouts are two nights, so no worries.
PDA "B" team is for PDA to make $$. And for crazy parents that want to say to to their soccer circle parent friend that they play for PDA. Don't blame PDA someone has to exploit the dummy's
This age group has so many good teams. With not much player movement in this age group I don't see this the PDA "B" team forming. If they do I can't see them being a top 10 team in NJ. I hope they at least teach them to play like O'R. I watched Impact play last month and I couldn't believe it was a PDA team. I know a lot of clubs preach consistent philosophy's and play. Does anyone know if all South teams play long ball like this team? Maybe its because O'R play so pretty i notice the difference
NPL Champions LeagueWho will represent NYCSL & EDP?U-14 GIRLS:1.Tualatin Hills United SC Onyx (Oregon Premier League)2.Carlsbad Lightning (Southern California NPL)3.Northwest United FC Powell (Washington State Premier League)
What is this? Can you explain please?
Are you talking about the champions cup??? Don't you have to wait until the season is over? Isn't it the winner of all the regions? Why are you only posting 3?
The winners of the NY League and the top NPL Club performer in the EDP league will be attending. From what I was told only 7 or 8 teams between both EDP north and south carry NPL standing
Winners in the U-13 through U-18 boys and girls age groups from the following NPLs will qualify for the 2013 NPL Champions Cup:EDPFlorida Premier LeagueGulf States Premier LeagueMidwest Developmental LeagueMountain Developmental LeagueNew England Premier LeagueNPL Division of New York Club Soccer LeagueNPL Division of NorCal Premier LeagueNortheast Pre-Academy LeagueNPL Division of Northern Illinois Soccer LeagueNPL Division of Oregon Premier LeaguePacific Developmental NPLSouth Atlantic Premier LeagueSoutheast Pre-Academy LeagueSouthern California National Premier LeagueTexas Pre-Academy LeagueWashington State Premier LeagueWhy did you post the 3 teams above? I don't understand.
NY League between Crush, HBC, Brentwood still can win the league EDP FSA and JU will meet in North vs South playoff
Is there a place to see EDP scores?
The ECNL is still the strongest league but for all the Matchfit hatters I can inform you that they will do just fine as the league continues to dilute quality with over 60 clubs in the league. Top Midatlantic team FC Virginia lost to Crush 2-0. Selecting 3 teams above mid table in PDA’s bracket as a competitive guidelines for judgment - here are the score for FC Delco PAE (4) Scorpions(5) FC Bucks (6) in their division of 11 FC Delco 3 wins Surge 2-1, SJ 1-0, Copa 3-2 with 2 losses Crush 0-1, JU 0-1. Scorpions 1 win Impact 2-1.. 1 tie JU 2-2. FC Bucks 1 win 3-0 SJ, 1 loss Surge 2-3, 1 tie Crush 0-0. So out of this mid table sample ECNL finishes 5-3-3 with non ENCL Jersey teams and with Soccer Plus allowing 44 goals against in 12 games and ECNL accepting teams like Las Vegas allowing 90 goals against in 12 games Im positive our girls will be fine. So stop hating
So what you are saying MF Dad is that MF will be fine because the competition isnt good.
Those of you calling for the new PDA team to be called a B team is just as dumb as calling the MF team a B team. As time goes on there are less places to play at a competitive level and these teams must be formed. The question is, does PDA bring in an established team and add on to it or start completely new.
So now PDA South is the C team
11:38 sorry for the late response. I only posted 3 because those 3 are for sure. They have Qualified for the Champions Cup in Colo.There are a bunch of other NPL leagues that will end in May/June.I hope our NYCSL and EDP NPL clubs show well this summer.
11:30 7 or 8 just on the Girls side?
ECNL is great, the R1 leagues are great in the Spring. NPL for both Fall and Spring. How come more teams aren't doing Super Y for the Summer?Only $1,200 for 10 games plus Nationals in Florida if teams qualify. Two tournaments cost about the same and you get 6 to 8 games and your done in 4 days.
7 Girls teams are NPL Clubs for the U14 girls EDP league. NPL Clubs are selected by club quality from top to bottom
I'm trying to figure out who will represent EDP and I am so confused.Is it the Fall winners of Division 1 North and Suuth vs the Spring Winners of Division 1 North and SOuth? is it the best NPL Club team?NYCSL is so easy to follow - every NPL Club puts a team in an age bracket just like ECNL they combine the Fall and Spring and play 22 games to determine a champion.Anyone know how EDP works?Your right below are the U 14 Girl NPl Club teams:Delaware RushFSA FCUJersey UnitedManhattan SCSmithtown Kickers SCSouth Jersey Elite BaronsTSF Academy
To answer about the structure of the NPL group in EDP .There two separate standings. The 4 NPL teams in the North winner plays the 3 team south winner. Looking at scores so far there was only 1 game played in the North FSA 3 TSF 1. So there is lots of play left in the North division but presume FSA with their history will come out on top. In the South the games were played last weekend SJ 0- DE Rush 1, SJ 1- JU 2, DE Rush 0, JU 2. JU advances from the south. Looking at the NY League with MFit, Crush, NJSA. Crush cruises ahead of the rest of NJ teams this should not surprise anybody. They may face some challenge from HBC and Brentwood. Crush looks like they will push to win the National Cup
Thanks a bunch - I hope the EDP & NYCSL teams do well.
PDA south is not the C team. PDA south is the A team for the southern portion of the state. If PDA north creates a second team, so be it. They wont be starting from square one, no way. They have their eyes on some established team and will work from there. That is how it is done.
Njsa maybe that's why the coach was wondering around the tournament.????? Totally speculating.
an academy team going to another academy?
It would have to be a decent team that maybe just doesnt have all of the parts, but a top 10 team none the less for it to make sense.
when has PDA ever taken a team? MF does that. always a first i guess. until any 98/99 PDA team can consistantly beat oreilly, they will remain the A team.how can anyone consider NJSA an established team when they have had almost 100% turnover since U11? how many of the girls from MF and NJX team have played there?
My predictions for US Club State Cup Semi Finals:Rage Premier over NJSAMF Thunder over PDA Impact in a close one.
I think MF vs. NJSA final. NJSA winning it.
You can label teams anyway you want too, it will not change the competition they will play.
8:36 I think you're right. Nothing against Thunder, but NJSA can score.
What I find funny is this Forum went dead after 5:04pm. All these clowns on here must have attended the MF tryouts....This is to funny... :)
Hilarious that you went on this site at midnight to see what others did, called them names and had nothing to say.
The way that you idiots are talking, Rage and PDA shouldn't bother showing up. Both of those teams have had a tougher road to the semi's than NJSA and MF Thunder!!! Your expert opinions are very comical and entertaining. You morons never dissapoint.
Sorry Rage, you will go down.
Why such a low turnout at MF tryouts last night? Discouraged or other commitments?
You should be happy, your daughter will make it now.
I've always been happy. I had no doubt she would make it. Did you drop out because you knew yours wouldn't?:)
What makes you believe my daughter dropped out? Dont assume anything.
When you post something so obnoxious, I believe I'm entitle to as well. I don't really care whether your daughter did or not. Best of luck to her.
What was posted wasnt obnoxious but factual. The less to compete against the better chances your daughter has. So sensitive you are.
"I had no doubt she would make it" is closer to obnoxious than anything else.
ur both obnoxious. the girls are more mature than both of you.
Two to three years it will all be over. I wonder if there is a blog for what colleges these girls will be accepted to. This way some of us has somewhere to go to keep this comedy show going. So what ever team or club you go to, try and watch the game and enjoy it.
Catching up before heading out for a day of soccer.Two comments: I think PDA has had a much easier road to semi's than NJSA, so I have to disagree there.And 9:16... I'm embarrassed for people like you. You don't agree with two people's predictions so you flip out. You need some help. Why don't you simply say, "I disagree, and my prediction is _________" Simple
is manny graziano the team coach/manager of njx still?
No. According to their Got Soccer page, it's a woman.
I have a question. We all know there are girls that play for both Surge and NJSA. It's a fact, no disputing. I'm wondering if those girls are allowed to play in State Cup for both teams??? I use them as an example because they are the only ones I know of, but I'm sure there are more from other teams. I'm just wondering what the rules are for that?
If your talking about the 1 player that plays for Surge and NJSA, she can play NJYS state cup as she did for the Surge against Crush. She can't play for the Surge in US Club cup because hse is carded to NJSA through US Club. The 3 Thunder players that play Region 1 with the Surge under there USYS card only, as they are carded to the Thunder for NPL under US Club. There is only 1 player playinbg for MF surge that plays for NJSA. and 3 from the MF Thunder that play for MF Surge also. I actually like the idea of being able to mix players up within the club. More chances for all the players involved.
I don't think I'll ever understand all these different leagues, clubs, and rules; but I get your point. Thanks for clearing that up.
So it appears that the Surge, even with help from the 3 Thunder girls, still isn't doing well since they only have 1 win in Region 1 premier. Competition must be tough.
thanks 1:40 for clearing that up so they don't have to make crap up.
And how is Surge doing with all these guest players? They must be undefeated and on top of league?I wonder if they practice together, and what the players /parents think of the other players? Playing time ?Is this development?
Crush only won one also.
Does anyone know the difference between Bridgewater United SC and Bridgewater SA??? Is one better than the other? Two clubs in the same town?
Surge falls a part after season. Most of their girls at area tryouts, no secrets in youth soccer.
9:26 You got that right. One big open secret is how close one manager is to head of coaching and reason why that player is always in the right place at the right time despite her less than stellar game performance again and again. Too bad better players getting overlooked for this.Politics as usual.
Daddy coaches? Hey you signed up for it. I can understand at town club level trying to keep costs down, but.....
With all the changes going at MF it should be real interesting who shows up for tryouts at the new PDA U15 north team for next year. I am surprised they did not do this in prior years. Someone must be bringing their team there.
That's right, daddy coaches, uncle coaches & mommy managers. Politics at its best, and it got them no where. Should have chosen players based on talent and not for GS points. Can understand why Surge was wished no success and was bashed as much as they were. I'm certain everyone involved is anxious for the end of this team and looking forward to a fresh start.
Ugly. Fresh start at U-15 in Fall? New team at u-15? Wow! Dream on.U-15 is the most important age and a very good player or one that wants to play at the next level needs to be on a team that will get exposure.New teams, changing teams, Being stuck on an imploding team all should have happened at u-13.Need to be on and getting serious playing time if not a starter at Region 1 Premier, top ecnl(not just any ecnl) or at least another Region 1 league team(Colonial,NE etc..) Bteam? NOT!Promises at u-15 need to be fulfilled by coach and club, and if they fall short of your expectations, then you certainly have drank the kool-aid from somebody or have not done your research. ABOUT BEING IN THE RIGHT SITUATION AT U-15
of course an established team is going to PDA. No one would have done this without a solid core. It is out there who it is, people know.
So 3:54 tell us who this team going to PDA is. We'd all like to know.
Toms River ?
Sorry. I dont know, but you know that a team does know. It would have to be a team within a 45 minute drive to Zerapath, with some sort of a PDA tie, and a decent core of girls. I really dont know who though.
Nah. They wouldn't be PDA's B team. Marlboro maybe?
may Fc Copa Celeste? 10 mins away.
Nobody. Not another Bteam. Too many Bteams in NJ as it is. Truth be told, a few bench players from O'R are looking, so a couple spots might open up there as well.
Get over the B team stuff, they dont exist. In NJ we are all B teams to OReilly. MF will be able to have their own league soon as they keep adding more teams.
Lot's of talk in the last few days that Marlboro is the team headed to PDA.
Lots of talk, thats funny. Where did you hear this? Be honest.
thats what I thought
Marlboro is going to PDA was told by a parent of one of the girls.
Is FC COPA Celeste a good team to tryout for?
Hmmm, Marlboro. Actually makes sense to me. They have a pretty good team but when we played them they seemed a bit short on players. Not sure of the distance, but this could be a very good fit.
Regarding COPA, yes they are a good team and yes they would be a good team to try out for if your daughter is a difference maker.
A girl, told her cousin, how told her aunt, who told me. So I know.
My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who heard it at 31 Flavors last night.
Yes, Malboro is going to pda. Some of the existing players will not be going and have been at some tryouts.Maybe 8 players or less, because the others would rather stay local and not travel for practices, only games.
You must be part of the Marlboro group, is it a good move?
Not for my daughter. With 3 kids, Frankly, can not afford it or want her to spend the time in a car.
Or cant make it. Don't be afraid to try, you never know.
Not even worth trying. Why try something, that when all is said and done is not best for us as a family.As head of this family, the overall benefit is about the family first.
Head of the family? Who talks like that?
"put family first?" who talks like that
oh no! might even mention GOD!I thought HE came to visit last September?
What is the deal when a team comes over like that? Does the entire team Get a roster spot for a year? Try outs?
I would think it was an open tryout. Either way the Marlboro kids are good enough to be on the new team and they will need to perform like any player up at PDA.
IF an entire team goes to PDA, the entire team will NOT be offered a roster spot. This is an easy way to cut players that weren't really wanted and to pin the blame on the new evaluator. IF it is Marlboro, I would have to agree with a previous poster that they would seem to deserve a spot regardless.
Why would Marlboro go to PDA, they are already a top 10 team. I just don't get it.
When at an academy, parents lose ALL control except for the top 2-3 players. Club higher ups(you are now paying for them and their staff/assistants etc..) make all important decisions including coaching(rotating coach) practice times/fields etc.. Sometimes even down to whom is on team and how many players. Coaches are paid to coach/train and generally make day to day, game to game, but not major decisions. Even some clubs decide which tournaments/leagues the teams(A,B,C)will play or not play, not the team at a parents meeting.PAY UP AND SHUT UP! of course you can always come on this blog and say stuff(true or lie), but do not dare say anything to club.If ecnl wants to be like an academy(no girls academies currently anywhere in USA)then just pin a number on the back and call her #485. I truly think it could work to make the USA Women's(USWNT) always the best in soccer, but we give up a lot. so do it for the good of women's soccer in the good ole USA, but not for the individual freedoms of young girls just trying to grow up and play soccer.
what happens to the rest of the team? where else is left for them to tryout? anyplace else left for kids with some talent to go?
Rest of what team?
Marlboro (or any other team, i guess, if it applies). if they don't go to pda 2nd team with everyone else then what teams to tryout for that are still decent talent. i was just wondering about the girls that are left, what happens to them?
Tryouts happen every spring. Teams combine, breakup, add or subtract players all the time. If the girls that are "left" have an interest in playing soccer they can find a team. If it is Marlboro that you are using as an example and the car ride is too long for you, tryout at MF, it is right down the road. NJSA isn't far either. Plenty of options if she really wants to play. Too much money? There are town teams still available, Freehold, Millstone, to name a couple. Why not stay and play in Marlboro? No team (maybe), play on the team a year older.
Like the idea of playing up. Thanks !Girls with talent have lots of options.Playing up opens a lot of new doors.
How does playing up work when it comes to showcasing? As far as I know the u15 teams in Marlboro are no where near the caliber of the u14 team.There is usually a deal that for one year, the players coming with the team do not have to try out. I know this from first hand experience. This way a new start up team is gauranteed a top ten team to start.Also... 3:12...you speak of the ECNL like it's a factory and the girls aren't having a great experience. O'Reilly is like a family. Each and everyone of them loves what they do and how it is done. No different then any other club. I don't understand your statements. I also don't understand when you said the ECNL is trying to be an academy. It is a league, not a club.
They have to try out. If they are not good (not just at the tryout) they can get cut, but that has already been decided I am sure.
what are the chances of breaking into a top team like OReilly if you go to tryout do they give your kid a fair shot? What about Crush,BEC,Jersey United,YMS, any other teams that level? Do you think they consider new players that come to tryout?
it's not a family, it's a team.as much as we would like to sometimes, we don't send family members away because someone we like better shows up.
Hahaha! That made me laugh out loud. Somebody totally missed 5:35's point.
They would take notice if your child stood out. They aren't going to take a #4 player that's just as good as the #4 player they already have. They would probably only take impact players. I would remove YMS and O'Reilly from that group though. Totally different level. All the girls that I know who went to O"Reilly practiced with the team for months before try outs. But you never know, if your daughter is really THAT good. You'd probably have a better shot at JU or Crush. Don't know much about BEC.
If you can play at a higher level or skill by all means try-out for the best teams. You would be surprised how many people think that I will not make PDA or a YMS type level team when in fact they could.. Don't be afraid because its a good thing for your kid and these top teams welcome kids..
Playing up if you start on a good team(doesn't even have to great team) gets exposure that others will not get for a year. Puts name on lists and generates interest.
O Reilley is not even having tryouts so to speak. If she is that good coach will get word to you of interest. Best bet is to play against O'R and she will get great looks from others that come to watch. Very tight nit group of girls that is too late to get into. When players have tried they end up leaving unhappy. Spare us and your daughter.
Hey B team losers, any coaches coming to see the B team? Once a B team loser, always a B team loser.Never good enough for A team, how's that make your little angel feel.Make a lot of us mad, but the truth is hard. Just read it again with an open mind but slowly and pause to get the full impact. I dare you.
I just had to comment on the 9:32 post, by what appears to be a current PDA parent, asking to "spare us and your daughter".Question: If you are indeed a PDA parent, do Larry and Tom know you are making such a post ? Would they be happy that you are making a post to discourage girls from coming to PDA ? Is it a good statement to make that either the girls or the parents on PDA make for such an environment that is so closed off and exclusive that outsiders are simply not welcome ?I have no clue who you are or what kind of player your daughter is, but one might come to a conclusion that you are afraid of her getting cut and want to dissuade interest in coming to the team.On the other hand, maybe this is just someone trying to make PDA look bad. Again, what would Larry and Tom think of this ?
Any team that would not welcome new players is not a team you want to be apart of.. Teams need to keep evolving and thats what try-outs are for.. If this is a PDA parent afraid of his or her kid getting cut shame on them or someone posting to hurt PDA name shame on them as well. Again if you have the game bring it to the best team..
can anyone tell me about the matchfit club team ib berkeley? is it match fit pricing? what league are they playing in? etc...
The arrogance of O'Reilly and it's parents are outrageous. Reminds me of a time we played just before the National Champions u-15 MSC Coyotes and over heard the parents. Such an exclusive mother's club that should be on TY.
They are a good team, you gotta give em that. Bottom of their roster is weak though, most likely where the post came from.
Great teams always have bottom roster issues. If you are really good player why be the 14th , 15th player and not play, or play very little.Hey coach, come see me play, I might not play a lot through.I came to see you, thank you. What do you know about #31 and # 43 they are really good and I am interested in them.
Mr B Team.If a B team is better then a different organizations A team, what do you do then?
Always play on the best A team where she can start or at least play a lot.Only speaking for players that desire to play at the next level down the road at college.B teams are fine for those of us that just enjoy watching our little princess play soccer. BUT..If she really wants to play in college, do not get stuck on a B team or the second team of a club.And keep the grades up. We are now competing with European girls, Canadian and South American girls filling college rosters for no scholarships. Just a chance to come to USA on student visa's.
So a MF B team would be worse to play on than a SJE A team? If you believe that you are wrong. Both teams will compete in the same tournaments and will be seen by the same people. It isn't as black and white as A/B. Regarding college players willing to come on student visa's, that wont impact scholarship numbers as title 9 needs to be adhered too.
Just roster numbers and available spots. DUHWhy do you think coaches want these players? It is ok to be a first timer in youth girls soccer.
Ok , you are on a B team. Not good enough for A team. Want daughter to be on A team, but not good enough.Doing everything possible, paying for extra training, brown nosing A team parents and coaches, but still NOT good enough for A team. Just not good enough.AND....Ok ok ok we will promote you to A team(and your daughter), because the 17 th player left, and we need your money and you are willing to do anything, I mean anything to get to A team.
Hey coach, come see me play on the B team. The A team is over there warming up for their top bracket game, but come see me play.My soccer resume? Only the A team coaches worked on that with their players. And my coach is not as respected as the A team coach, but he really really nice to me and my Dad. He will certainly say I am a great player for the B team.
^^^^^^ poster above^^^^^^^^^^^unless your daughter plays on O'Reilly you are in fact on the B team.
Agree.All youth soccer girls teams are second to O'Reilly.O'Reilly looking to expand roster to 28-30 players. All interested contactand send soccer resume to. Interviews will take place and need paper work of bank acct and letter from private school teacher.If you are honored to be selected, be aware it is only a 60 day trail.Full ride college scholarship guaranteed to all starters to D3 or better.Good Luck
All this PDA this and that is a waste of time..There are plenty of teams that are just as good without feeling you don't belong.CrushBECYMSNew MF from the sounds of it
pda has to defend itself, and Bteam parents have to defend themselves.Makes for a fun blog just for entertainment only. Nothing on here is very accurate anyway, so relax and enjoy the pdaer's squirm. Not many A team parents on blog, because they are A team.
With that said enjoy your B team games
So, really, Marlboro is not going to PDA.... some girls from Marlboro are trying out for PDA. Usually when a team goes to a club, it's a contract type situation. The whole team is guaranteed a spot for one year.
guarenteed a spot...not playing time. Good Luck to NJSA next weekend! Sting has never won anything big. it would be nice for the coach and the girls that didn't jump ship.
Don, that was very well written, even for you. Way to pat yourself on the back for not leaving even though you threaten to every year. Taking a shot at the girls who are leaving you? Is it any wonder that players don't want to come to play for you.
Played a Freehold team this weekend. Players were very dirty, parents completely out of control. What would make a father think he could get in another parents face like that? No way this man should be allowed at another game.
Freehold a good little team, parents are a little over the top, but welcome to youth soccer in NJ. You can always sit in the car.
wow, nice try 2:01. good imagination. too bad you are wrong. LOL
Freehold parents over the top? What games have you been watching? I find it difficult to find anyone that cares.
This blog has gone downhill if we are talking about a crappy Freehold team.
Go Marlboro. I like all this talk about Marlboro. The website got over 1200 visits the last two days and the admin could not figure out why?Now we know, thanks.BTW- Would never go to pda, against everything we believe. pda, a good club just not what we are looking for.They have approached us twice in last 6 months.
Lots of teams seem to be disbanding. 2 teams from the top 10! I still don't understand the mboro, pda relationship works. Will mboro have a team next year? How many BEC players went to mfit ecnl? will BEC have a team next year? mfit thunder are no more will the surge still be around? I can't see a place for the surge and njsa
Surge will survive. NJSA will not be as strong
There is no MF Surge or MF Thunder any more. They are now ECNL and Pre ECNL/NPL teams comprised of players from both teams and elsewhere.
6:09 PM Dream on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why would a team go to PDA, or MF or any other? As the years progress, town teams keep their core but it is very difficult to add or maintain, thus PDA/MF are the best options to keep your core together and add quality players. Fairly simple.
$$$Matchfit$$$. ECNL team will not be as strong as PDA. NPL team will not be as strong as other Jersey NPL
MF THE PLACE TO BE. If not a starter on O'R, Players testing the waters.
Could be a location issue also.
MatchFit is the place to be.Girls Soccer is the life for me.Fields spread out so far and wide.Keep your town teams just send me that bill so high.da da da da da
Now that should be the MF song..Take C level teams with ECNL hype to at best a low level B team for 3,000 a year in fees.. Sounds like the place to be.. Its almost as bad as the PDA south people paying high fees to just have PDA on their shirt.. Wake up people..
PDA South now the C team, talk about a comedown. Shame as they have a few very talented girls on their roster. Even with a stacked tournament flight, they couldn't win the PDA tournament. That's when the PDA heads decided they needed a new 2nd team.
8:20Forcing players on a new coach is one thing, but actually taking them? Wow. Surprised the new coach went for that. Wonder if he only took them because he was told to. Wonder if they will see any playing time . . .
For 5/8 @ 7:00pm....How do you make a team the "C team" when they have not even had a tryout for the so-called "B team." I always thought this A B C team stuff was based on who the better team is.
The more I hear about this club, the less I want to be a part of it.
You are an idiot. No one made them the C team other then some random poster.
That was my point.
Looking foward to seeing everyone at the PDA tryout tonight; especially the Marlboro group.
and your point is what? Are you welcoming new players?
