That 2000 team sent a few players to Disney and played with less players at the end of NPL. Also they pulled up a player from the 2002 team

Impressive. That is certainly making the most of their time in FL. How did work as far as logistics? I heard that the NPL games where a bit away from Orlando.

NPL field was weak so it didn't matter

Is top drawer soccer worth joining?

Anonymous said...

I would not pay for Top Drawer but I'm a member for now because we got a membership since my kid did a Top Drawer showcase. You may have noticed this already but everything they write is geared towards ECNL on the girls side (and DA on the boys side). $4 a month just to see who they think were the top players at some event, when they only watch maybe 3 or 4 games per day, just doesn't seem a good value.

There is enough free content for it to be useful as is.

But 5:26 if NPL brackets were so weak why didnt any of the 3 CSA Teams that attended(1999, 2000 and 2001 all attended) come out on top?

So my family comes back from Disney and tells me that we had several players from the team below and above us play with our team which cut many kids minutes. Other parents tell me I should be happy we won. But in the end we did not Aberbush did. We entered wags and casl as averbush and then were changed to fury but our DOC could net get Disney changed so in the end Averbush gets credit for the win not fury. On top of that I hear our captain stayed home for basketball and that one of the older girls mom was bragging how the wildcats will work around her basketball schedule and it's ok if she misses some so this is why she joined wildcats this year. Why are we rewarding kids who are not dedicated to the team? I could not make this up if I tried.

It doesn't matter about a "team" at this point. If you are a freshman or sophomore college coaches are watching individual players not teams. If your daughter played and played well that's all that counts.

5:14 and this is exactly what is wrong with this Fing world we live in - all about me who cares who I step on to get what I want. Great job as parents we did.

Soccer is a team sport and it's all about the team and how the player fits in.
Yes coaches are watching the players not how many step overs they do but how they connect with their team and how they play their ROLE on the TEAM. How can you say it doesn't matter about the team - Life is about fitting into a team either in a family or at work.

The girl who also plays hs basketball was in florida playing with wildcats. Is everything that comes out of your mouth a lie. Wildcat parent my eye. Everyone knows who you are and your attempts at mistepresenting yourself are obvious and tiresome. But trying to turn winning top flight at Disney into a negative is a stretch even for you.

Anonymous said...

I didn't intimate that the an individual player not be a team player. What I meant is that the college coaches coming to watch and recruit could care less of the team your daughter is on is the best team. They are only lookkng at the players as an individual. Of
Course she must be a team player among other attributes.

9:47 I don't know anyone from the Wildcats... But how can you be sure that it's a BS post?

12:33 so why even mention that - soccer is a team sport with players playing different roles. There should be no difference between practice, league game and showcase it's all the same as far as playing and being part of a team. So if the team doesn't why is their a top of the pyramid? F1, F2 and so on? Doesn't the team have to be good to get to F1? or is random pick out of a hat?

It's always about the team and playing for your team putting your body in front of a shot to help your goalie or sprinting back on Def to stop a counter when you are an attacking player. You said "It doesn't matter about a "team" at this point." College coaches were never looking at the team NEVER. So why say it. I'm talking about the parents that tell their kids to dribble and not pass the ball score the goals so you look good. How many times do I hear parents asking their kids how many goals did you score? Who cares if they stayed and watched they would have seen how good their kids played without scoring any goals.

My point is college coaches always come to recruit the player that is a given and has never changed and never will. But if they have free time to go watch a game - they will watch top flight games before bottom flight games any day of the week, I would.

Depends.

If a "not so top flight" (your description) team's player caught the attention of the coach at a clinic, even by e-mail - then the coach might forego a "better" (your word) game to see the "lesser" one.

GET their attention - that's the first lesson.

Cheers.

Where is list of accepted teams to Jeff Cup? Was supposed to be up 1/6/17

Anonymous said...

8:32 My bad - let me try again -

the college coach is free already saw all the kids that reached out in the AM now has some time to kill in between the next group he/she has to see in PM.

Next to him/her are two fields but he/she can only watch one - the top flight or the bottom flight (the event's description) who does he/she pick?

I already said i would pick the top flight. Stop trying to SPIN it's a straight forward question. Are you telling me you would pick the bottom flight since the team doesn't matter to you?

Jeff Cup acceptance absolutely crucial for players on 2000 and 2001 teams. Along with pda showcase those are the 2 spring college showcases that every college program will attend.

Anonymous said...

2018's players need Jeff Cup. Not crucial for 2020's or 2019's.

Jeff Cup acceptance is absolutely crucial for non ECNL teams.

ECNL teams have the ECNL Phoenix event, which draws all the P5 schools. Top U16 teams get all they need in Phoenix.

ECNL teams get auto acceptance to Jeff Cup which is a nice thing. Many ECNL programs, U-16 to U-18, form composite teams for the players that are not committed. Results make no difference at Jeff Cup.

Anonymous said...

for 2019's jeff cup very important. Sophomore year is now most highly recruited year, not junior year. You are wrong as most power 5 conference schools have all their athletic scholarship money promised by end of sophomore year for that class.
Be careful of putting out inaccurate posts for those parents who need accurate info for their children.

Anonymous said...


What I am saying is the P5 will be in AZ. There are good teams at Jeff Cup, but many of the top teams don't attend, thus, not as many P5 schools. Jeff Cup does get some P5 schools to show, but it is mostly mid-majors and the focus of mid-majors are the 2018's and 19's. Sorry, but the P5 focus on the ECNL national events, which are much bigger events for recruiting and huge for the 2019's & 20's playing on U16 teams. ALL the P5 schools will be in Phoenix, but they won't be at Jeff Cup. Accurate.

You need to go "mobile" to see the acceptances for Jeff Cup
Same every year

Yes and I am sure they will be focused on the 2017's as you claim. You are a misinformed ignorant person. Many of the Region 1 ECNL Teams are playing at Jefferson Cup you fool. And all the college coaches from Region 1 will be there as they were at Raleigh for CASL event and as they will be in Vegas for that event the week before Jefferson Cup.

Anonymous said...

So 1:17 let me get this straight, all the top ECNL Teams wont be at Jefferson Cup? did you bother to even look at Champiosnship flight? Its as strong or stronger as any tournament flight I have seen this year. Including the ECNL events.Even flight 2 is fill with strong teams and the ECNL Clubs are ALL represented. Also tell us again how this springs tournaments are the biggest recruiting events for 2018 junior class, not 2019 sophomore class. You are an absolute Buffoon!

Anonymous said...

Well, they are certainly big recruiting events for those 2018 players that are uncommitted.

Anonymous said...

But their is no athletic scholarship money left for 2019's now in the spring of their junior year for major conference programs. Those schools have finished their recruitment of the 2019 current hs junior class and are now wrapping up the 2020's sophomore class this spring and will begin looking at the 2020 frosh class as well. If you are an uncommitted junior/2019 class then you are looking at mid majors at this point if you expect to get ANY athletic money.

You don't get a high turnout of coaches in Vegas. Just does not happen anymore. Coaches of those teams will tell the players and parents to justify the cost of the trip, but it's not ECNL AZ, although club coaches will try to spin it that way.

You do get the highest turnout of coaches at the ECNL events in the spring. ECNL AZ and NJ have all the P5 schools and they will be focused in on the 2019's and 20's.

Jeff Cup and CASL are good events, but still not at the level of the ECNL national events. Jeff Cup is still great for the 2018's.

FALSE. There is still money out there for 2019 players.

Yes, there are very good teams playing at Jeff Cup, but not as good as the ECNL national events. That is why the two biggest events of the spring for recruiting will be ECNL AZ and NJ.

Name calling is fine with me. In the end, you will see that I am correct. All the best in Vegas...

2017- current seniors
2018-current juniors

2020- current freshmen
Just sayin

1:55 - hahahaha, you beat me to it.

Yes, 2017's are the current seniors; and 2018's are the current juniors; and 2019's are current sophomores. 2019's are not juniors as an above poster proclaims. So, school are STILL recruiting 2018's very heavily.

Anonymous said...

No power 5 schools are still recruiting hs jumiors and look at jeff cup all region 1 ecnl teams are there. Every one. You are mistaken. Jeff Cup has best of both ecnl and non ecnl teams. That is why all the colleges will be there. They can see everyone.

Anonymous said...

Correct 2019 yes.But for 2018 major college programs are done with juniors.

Anonymous said...

2:53 - many know that most ECNL teams won't play commits. So, not getting a true peek at the regular team and how kids really play within the soccer systems from which they are recruiting as some will be in different positions, etc.
Just hoping the weather is good and all the participants have a good showing.

I love how this blog talks about kids being recruited in their sophomore year! Stop dreaming! As of right now only 2 kids playing fro respected teams have been committed to top D1 schools and your isn't one of them.

Anonymous said...

Message to the mature parents out there...we are now parents of 2001 girls, stop trying to make your daughter's team out to be the best by destroying others, get a life.
Be a parent, help your daughter do her best to help her succeed in life.
Lots of bullies and trolls around here, still stuck in the U12 years, living vicariously through their kids because they missed out on opportunities when they were young.
Oh...and Obama is done and Trump won, get over it!
Why not offer some helpful hints for those parents who are new to this showcasing instead of being pompous asses?

Anonymous said...

What's the definition of a "respected team"? W-L record? Coach's attitude? Players' attitudes? League? I thought recruitment was all about the player's ability, not the team's. Plenty of good players out there, that for one reason or another, do not play for a "brand name" or so-called respected team.

Anonymous said...

True. I agree with poster after looking at jeffeson Cup acceptances. those top 3 flights are very strong indeed. Couldn't figure out why someone was trashing Jefferson Cup on here. Then I went through the list again and realized for some reason MatchFit decided not to send their teams. so it is most likely Matchfit trying to run down Jefferson Cup as unimportant and Arizona event as the place to be as that is evidently what they tried to sell their parents.

Anonymous said...

Jeff Cup flights are horrible. There is no organization whatsoever. The tournament needs to stop following GotSoccer. The better teams don't go after the GotSoccer points therefore they're in the lower flights.

Does anyone know what PDA will do as far as ECNL once the GDA is up and running next year? I can't imagine that they'd stop playing in ECNL.

9:24 I guess I need to get a life, because i love talking best teams or maybe I should say quality teams and I use results the only metric you can use to avoid opinions and being bias. Now if the results (which we have no control over but our girls do) destroy a team or pump up a team why is that taboo?

My kid wants to play in college and she has filled out D1 questionnaires, attended D1 ID clinics, talked to D3 coaches and visited schools on a list she prepared with no input from me.

If we don't talk results what do we talk about? it's not right to talk about kids, I think the college thing has been talked about with no new information to be discovered.

12:13 I don't see why they wouldn't. They have a great set up, the DA just set up a u15 age so know we have u13,u14 and u15 single age groups, cha ching. The have the brand and people will do anything to have their kids be on one of their rosters even if they are the 24th player.

12:07 teams (parents) that might be upset they are not in the top 3 (Championship, Elite or Superior flights) are listed below.

11:12 genius move to some how drag MF into this. No disrespect but i would take Arizona over Virginia as a tournament location any day of the week (my kid happens to want to go out west)

F4 Platinum Orange
JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC ELITE-MANALAPAN (NJ)
PDA SOUTH 01 (NJ)

PENN FUSION SA NPL 2001 (PAE)
TSF ACADEMY 2001G (NJ)

8:52 - clearly you don't have access to The List. There are many more than 2 top level sophomores verbally committed to top level programs. I know of more than two personally. And, my older daughter committed late in her soph year. It happens. Just don't rush it and make sure all the stars align.

More importantly, as the poster noted, there are plenty of soccer spots out there; don't panic.

Anonymous said...

I understand that every team can't be in the top fllights but some of the teams listed in top 3 flights have to know they shouldn't be there. It's quite obvious. The Jeff Cup people definitely dropped the ball this year.

Anonymous said...

These are some teams I think are to high, but i wouldn't replace them with any of the teams I listed previously.

These tournaments brag about their 1 goal games. Destroy the teams that you play other events will take notice as tournaments hate one sided games as it's a waste of time for the colleges and negative press.

FC FREDERICK '01 (MD
HARFORD FC UNITED THUNDER 01/02 (MD)

Honestly these futsal tournaments and indoor tournaments are a waste of time at the HS ages even the younger ages in my opinion. Just train with the team and relax on the weekends before Spring kicks into gear.

I remember back a few years posters were trying to sell some futsal national Championship in CA and the Wildwood event as the place to be - where are they now, since the posts stopped? Oh it's about the individual these days right? Always has been.

Psychologically, competition (indoor events, futsal) is good.

Dont just look at the technical.

Did all the futsal tourneys with my kids.They are better players today because of them.My oldest daughter really misses it and so do I.

My kid did futsal. She's a GK. Kind of dangerous for a GK. Saw one break an arm diving onto the floors. Not something we do anymore.

Anonymous said...

4:55 Let me understand your kid is a better player because of the futsal tournaments and not the futsal training?

I love the training could careless about the games, most of the games played were not vs very good teams and the skilled players did a bunch of 1v1 and long range shooting. Kids will be kids. But to each their own, happy your kids love it.
