U16G Soccer in PA, NJ, MD, VA & NY

Note: These high school women at age 16 are no joke. Many are looking ahead to college soccer play. They tell their stories here.

OMG, too funny!

you really need to get a hobby of your own.

i find it funny you are ranking a team that has never played any of the others.

I find it funny that you are ranking teams that are ok at best.

I find it sad and funny that some wildcat mom or dad needs so badly to promote the team and bring unnecessary and negative attention to their daughter's soccer team and club. And at the same time grind whatever ax they have to grind with sj crew. Your girls are growing up. Its about time you did too. Does big Kev promote this nonsense? Erin go braugh.

Anonymous said...

I don't know why a parent on any team would want to promote this nonsense. The Wildcats team is a nice group of girls that get along well on and off the field. The girls are playing competitive ball and neither their coach or club owner would approve of such a post. Let's not talk negatively about any team and ignore responding to such posts. Let's just enjoy watching our kids enjoy the sport.

Is Rage Premier Magic still the same team or did they change when they merged with NJ Rush?

only 2 teams survived at Jeff Cup.

Anonymous said...

Which ones? I saw a lot of NJ teams in the top 4 of 12 team brackets. I would say that's pretty good.

How will points be awarded? Not that it matters at this point but I'm just curious.

Anonymous said...

This is a SHOWCASE you morons...who gives a crap about wins and losses except a few of you losers. Get a life and get a clue!!! There were coaches everywhere at all locations. Great exposure for all of these kids. Kids who work hard in school and work hard on the field. Good for them! I wish them all luck.

Anonymous said...

Who cares about wins? How about the coaches. If they didnt care about wins why wouldnt they play everyone equal minutes? Why wouldnt they start different players?

Anonymous said...

Moron here...yes, this was a showcase event but every 12 team flight had a winner, finalist and two semi-finalists and there were thousands of points on the line. Showcase events are not meaningless in terms of rankings..but, what do I know, I'm just a moron.

I am sure they are looking for points elsewhere.

MF tryouts announced. MF or PDA, horrible choices in this age group but where else to go? Just received another email from PDA about their "optional" training sessions. Oh, bring a check. All is well though, all the teams get placed in the top 15 flights. At least you know the team will be there, MF teams come and go as quickly as the players do. All about the money for all of these clubs and coaches.

Anonymous said...

while i would love to see the town teams survive and compete, very few do. it has just become a fact.

i also agree that people deserve to be paid for their expertise and time. i would expect it and i am sure you would too. does it have to be so expensive?

MF was the biggest waste of money. i could throw out the laundry list but there is no point. if your daughter is serious, choose PDA.

And the fields..... Too much snow, too much rain, Club closed the fields. No games, re-doing scheduling. No practice b/c of the wind.....
Lots of money thrown at keeping up the incredible fields that we can not play on. They look great, and the few times they allow us the privilege to actually get on them and play is wonderful. But at what costs??

Devit lol

Whose fields are we talking about? Matchfit's Holmdel fields?

Good team.

Two of NJ's "top 3 ranked" teams in a battle for last place down at MSSL college showcase this weekend. Making NJ proud.

I'm not with either team but was at the tournament. Many teams were missing players due to injury or spring break vacations. The 2 teams you referenced 4:13, also played against good teams including each other.

Torrential rain on the Friday and constant heavy winds on the Saturday. I didn't see any team play any form of soccer.

Torrential rain? Must have happened after 2:00. No rain in the am and only showers around noon . Sat wind was ridiculous! Very hard to play any kind of decent soccer.

Anonymous said...

True - "Sat wind was ridiculous!" but that only disturbs long ball / kick and run teams. Good teams, at a minimum any "top 5" should know how to pass the ball on the ground.

Anonymous said...

it started raining friday about 11am. steady at time but i don't remember it ever being torrential.

agree the wind on saturday was ridiculous.

disagree it only affected kick n run teams. i'd bet all teams had free kicks, corner kicks and punts but i could be wrong.

Anonymous said...

watched a corner kick stop dead in the air and fall back towards where it came from. gusts up to 36 mph.

shouldnt be taking a corner in the air in that type of wind. Bad player or coach.

LOL they are kids, not perfect like you

Kids not properly trained.

Fields looked OK at MSSL this weekend but they were really very slippery as the grass is still dormant. Footing was definitely an issue in the rain for Friday. Wind was tough Saturday but as the previous poster said, any team that can play the ball on the ground was not affected. Cross winds neutralized the effect for some fields, and others were equalized as both teams get to with and against the wind. Everyone had a fair shake so no one can bitch.

Wow I just read this whole blog and cannot believe how poorly people are speaking of 16 year old girls. PDA, Crew, whoever.... when you get down to it, these are just young women wanting to get better at soccer and playing their hearts out. Would you want someone speaking about your daughter that way? We have really lost sight of what is important in this world.

Thanks for the good spirit in this thread, 2:08. I'm a soccer mom at the mercy of a kid who adores the game and I'm just along for the ride with her. In New Jersey there are a gazillion clubs but only so many hours in the day; you have to do what works for you as a family.

New ECNL Club in Baltimore ?
Baltimore Bays and SAC Combine and are given new ECNL. 3 more clubs in R1 to get ECNL.
ENCL here ECNL there anywhere/everywhere ECNL

Anonymous said...

I actually heard it is a Pipeline and SAC combine. Who are the other clubs..

Anonymous said...

SAC is a great club already. Not sure what they get for all the extra fees. u17's have 12 commits and u16's have many commits already to Rutgers, MD, Towson and a couple to Johns Hopkins.

And they do keep rosters down to a manageable 18 or so it seems.

Anyone know whats going on with the rush programs.

Within a few more years, top level independent teams will cease to exist in areas where ECNL has an established presence.

10:00 How do you figure? Not every team can be in ECNL. There will still be a place for other top teams.

Anonymous said...

Reasons? I'm not looking to be a buster. I read the above comments. I just need help bc I don't understand everything in depth.

Anonymous said...

MF DOC could care less. calls parent meeting and never shows up. no apology, no nuthin. then when i was told he would call me to speak about a different concern...i am still waiting.

i am still waiting for apparel i ordered 2 and 3 (?) years ago? two separate orders. you can only send so many emails before you give up.

there was no player or team growth at all. that was the main reason she left. i don't mind paying if i see results (no, doesn't have to = wins). seen a TON of improvement in current team. plenty of room for more. club way more organized.

in April, coach couldn't remember that he had not rostered a player EVER for a league or tournament game. i guess 25 is too big of a number? not my kid but i still think it is a problem.

MF took 3 players money and then told then they were only training players. the left so they could actually play. if the skill level drops off that much from #20 to #25 then DON'T TAKE THEM.

have a friend whose daughter is on COPA. last we spoke she was very happy with everything.

nothing is perfect.


Anonymous said...

I am new to EDP. My daughter has never played in this league before.

Is a Coach allowed to change the field on game day just because he prefers one over another? (turf/grass)

Are they allowed to use guest players from another team at the same club? At the start of the game I overheard the parents saying one player was helping them out and later at the start of the 2nd half I heard a different group of parents talking and it seems there was more than one player from another team.

Cops over MF

Anonymous said...

Lol! Copa not cops!

Anonymous said...

Why?

Anonymous said...

It depends on which MF team your daughter was accepted. If it was ECNL maybe good. If not, don't accept a spot and move on. (other teams aren't good and the club could care less about any team other than ECNL and I KNOW THIS from past experience). I say maybe good if she made ECNL because MAYBE your kid will get playing time. They can and do roster up to 30. Previous poster stated other facts about the club as well. I would run as far away from MF as possible. Very unprofessionally run and the DOC thinks he's a dictator loudly demanding that this and that should be, but he has absolutely no integrity. Hope this helps.

I'm curious and maybe someone can answer this for me:

In checking out a team's roster on got soccer, I noticed that the same player was listed on both a MF ECNL roster and a PDA NPL roster for the same season. I noticed it across age groups with MF ECNL and PDA NPL. (not the same player but a different player at older ages groups) How is this allowed?

Anonymous said...

just because names are on the gotsoccer site/roster doesn't mean it is the roster they submit for tournaments/showcases/ecnl.

one player listed on the U16 MF ECNL roster hasn't played soccer since U14.

Anonymous said...

OK let me put it this way: I KNOW for a FACT that a player in an older age group plays for BOTH PDA and MF. (not sure about the U16 age group) The one coach tweets about it all the time. I wanted to know how is this allowed?

Anonymous said...

dunno, why don't you call both DOCs and ask. that seems to be the only way you will get an answer.

Anonymous said...

I don't know if it's the coaches or Got Soccer, but they can be slow removing player's names from the rooster once they leave the team.

Anonymous said...

especially PDA, they suck at it.

Anonymous said...

the player that i was referring to was MF. was hurt, barely played a game at U14, gave up soccer and is still on the roster now at U16.

it's the coaches, not gotsoccer.

Your predictions were incorrect - Spartans beat Copa and will play STA in the NJ State Cup final! Both of Copa's goals were pks.

No Spartan parent, only ONE of Copa's goals was a PK. The other was a direct kick.

Even if PDA are down some starters, doesn't mean they should be getting beaten by 2-3 goals. Are they that dependant on a few players to get a win? If so That's poor on PDAs behalf. I truly believe that PDA as a whole doesn't develop players as well as other clubs do.

8:55 I totally agree. 4-5 players missing when they can roster up to 30. That is no excuse. They should have an extremely deep bench.
