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.

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.

only 2 teams survived at Jeff Cup.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

How do we surmise that rush blue is doing OK? They've won 3 games in an EPL season where points get posted before the seasons over. Other than that, nothing. When they play at the level commensurate with their points, they are overmatched.

I've seen rush do a much better job with the marlton girls. You do however need to have players who are eager to learn and respect the game.

Anonymous said...

Much better with Marlton girls? Do they even exist on that team or did they fade? One girl only sticks out of that team anyway. Both rush teams aren't very good compared to the amount of points they have. Central rush aka jbelite paid into the cash cow with false dreams because they are still average even with a rush jersey. Moving over was a waste .Talk about loyalty? The same with hamilton rush. The wildcats program was equivalent to what rush south is doing for Hamilton. why pay the cash cow for NOTHING, I don't get it. Matchfit and pda at least have top leagues to play in and licensed coaches. Central is 2nd fiddle to south rush teams who also play direct and poor soccer. Just saying

Deal with it!Its ok to lose, its part of the game. I'm sure you thought the "RUSH WAY" was supposed to win you games or your gotsoccer points. I tried talking to the President about the model, very scary if that's the future of alternate clubs trying to market similar to PDA, MatchFit,Penn Fusion etc. .

No, I meant the US Club Regionals are a disgrace. You could go to Nationals and literally play no one in one tournament. It is possible to tie every match at regionals and qualify for Nationals. Do you think that is ok? Nationals should be reserved for National elite teams. Do you think the Blues are a National elite team? US Club State tournament is tough and there should be no loop hole to get to nationals. It is just another money making tournament.

US Club Nationals "sound" good but in reality it is just another tournament Faaaaaaaaar away. If second class teams can apply to regionals and get into nationals it loses all luster.

Many chances and opportunities to play and complete. All is still good in PDA world.

@ 10:25 - don't be such a idiot. Have you never heard of rosters? Take the time and read the rules for each event and you might get a clue some day. Since you claim to know so much, why not name the #'s of the players that "rushed home" to play for the blues? (players names not allowed of course) While your at it, tell us what happened to JU? are their best players at the National ID camp again?
