I like the concept of an "elite league" but make it open to the real top elite teams of nj, pda & mf are not the top elite teams for nj for u14. This should be a playoff as for all states. It can be called odp, ecnl stole the concept and the $$$.

A town team is make up of only players from that town. At this age that does not exist We all have players from other towns with some driving over 40 minutes to do so.

So can we put an end to the town team is better than the XXX one. When our team was a true town team we paid $400 for 4 tournaments, spring and fall leagues. Now we have other players from other towns added a trainer to help coach, we play lots of events and pay north of $1800. Will my daughter ever play in college I dont know. All I do know is we are all paying plenty to play the cheapest sport in America. So start focusing on who you pay to train and coach as that should be our #1 debate on this blog. Are they helping our girls get better?

Wow a lot going on since last I was here. Finally Copa got interesting but I missed the response I guess as it was removed? What team are you with that you spend $1,800 a year on because that's academy prices? If anyone knows what was the story behind Copa & all the accusations? Copa Copa Copa(that's still annoying).

4:09 from yesterday - ECNL

I understand that coaches will down play ECNL and that makes sense for them. If they hype it up they will leave the club, but let me flip the scipt on you...if your coach had the opportunity to become a head coach for one of the ECNL clubs in your area, would they leave your club to go there?...same with the guest trainer with no ties to your club, if he or she had the opportunity to be a trainer at one of the ECNL clubs in your state would they go? I dont have an answer but you would have to be honest and answer yourself.

I know both sides as I have talked to a lot of coaches that gave me pros and cons of ECNL, one is that it is extremely competitive and every practice session is a try out to start, sometimes by the time girls get to college and soccer is a full time job besides school work, girls are just plain burned out. You can also get recognized via ODP or ID2, etc.. In my state ODP is a joke, but a VERY EXPENSIVE one that is not very funny and ID2, you need to be recognized by not only your coach but by others as well...Not saying ECNL is a end all, be all, but people bash it without full information is ignorant..not saying you 4:09, just saying

Anonymous said...

10:16, let us look at what you care about. Trying to dig up more information on a coach and it is killing you that no one will give it to you, and constantly bashing a manager who volunteers their time. YOU are what is wrong with this forum and the moderator should ban you or shut it down all together. Of course we all know they wont shut it down so what is the point of trying.

Anonymous said...

okay amdin god. its a shame but the truth hurts and should also set you free. the copa folks know what is going on and its crazy and one of the reasons they are so angry with everyone when they should be angry with there organization. the truth hurts and part two will clarify it.

Anonymous said...

Please share the truth.
blog only cares about nonsense. Move on, maybe you need to consider there is A new coach, who base on what I read here is an upgrade. Losing some players is more responsible for play than any thing else, As posted noted over and over,teams rise & fall every year, just about acquiring or losing players, little to do with coaching.

My vote shut it down!

How can you make the statement that town teams dont have good coaching and training. My kids team is trained by the same trainer that trains an academy we play against. You can say there are horrible coaches at both town and academy so do your homework and find the right spot!

Anonymous said...

Instead of shutting down the sure you can ban someone for repeated negative posts. That's the easiest way to handle the situation. Where the attacks get personal is where it gets out of hand & goes in a direction it never should have & at no time should a person be named or been initials given as that is also crossing the line.

Anonymous said...

Yes. The Administrator has been emailed on SEVERAL occasions over the past two weeks to remove a young players name off of this negative blog and NO RESPONSE. Interesting. What did this person do to get the Administrator's attention to remove the posts this morning? Provide input please as this blog needs to end.

I hear what your saying. Perhaps I am not understanding. Why would a top college program head coach not be able to train where ever they want. It's one of the most desired college programs in the country. She trained us as a favor to our coach. He could coach pretty much where ever he wants. Ecnl would love to have him. That I'm sure. He is not just a Pro coach he actually is also a pro coach. As for the assistant coach she could also coach anywhere she wants. She is widely traveled including Europe after a 4 year college career at one of the best programs in the country. She chose to be an assistant at a different d1 program. Ecnl would take either of them in a heart beat.

dear admin,

first amendment:"abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press" its social media and if name are not mentioned, why take it down? People need to know and ask questions. Questioning athority is what made this country what is. Home of the free land of the brave. When an organization is screwing around with the livelyhood of players and parents on the grounds of providing a service that is by no means honest or trustworthy people need to know. You are enabling these so called academies to run a muck and when the shit hits the fan and parents are being taken as suckers they have the right to know they are being taken for a ride. Maybe you shut it down because your not being fair to the truth. If 3-5 is your angle remember that many people gave their lives to provide us with free speech no names where mentioned but somehow you find it necessary to provide this organization an arena to rob and steal from parents.

thanks,

After 4 kids and roughly 15 years being involved with and around youth soccer, I have come to the conclusion that it has become a dirty business.

These so-called academies scam the parents BIG-time. I would love to quit, problem is I have a kid that is actually quite good and loves the game. Team is very good despite the club/coach shenanigans. Don't have the heart to make her go back to a crappy team. There is no Brick equivalent in my area.

So obsessed! Why would it matter how many are from Brick? The answer is more than half the team is from Brick & been together for years. Don't know about the rules you speak if but I'm sure a team luge that gets exemptions due to the nature of the team & what the rest of the club provides in ither age groups. Before this team has anyone ever heard of a team from Brick?

By the way. Not that the facts matter to most, but there are actually 2 Penn Fusion players on the u17 national pool. That is birth year 1999. The u17 "team" won't be named for almost 2 years, right before the u17 World Cup in 2016. The player who actually plays up on the '97 team started in Korea and has played her entire youth soccer experience at west Chester united and then Penn Fusion. I guess the theory that all national level players are recruited and the west Chester training isn't that good is proven wrong. The Penn fusion '98 player also plays up and is also a fantastic player. Penn fusion has also helped her along the way to international competition. There are no weak penn fusion teams. Bring your player and see if she can be an impact player. All teams are always looking for players who move up the level. Clearly there are some players who are not yet in the ECNL who could benefit from the exposure. The u14 team is doing very well. They are great kids who play beautiful soccer. Will be hard to break in but I am sure the coaches are always happy to bring in an impact player.

yes we all agree ECNL is getting the attention of top players, but not all, yes better exposure then other leagues.. for only the top players,.. but look at the numbers, only a few % from each team will go d1, the balance will go D2,3. What we are saying is that many parents think their kid will go D1 with scholarship just because they are on a ecnl when the truth is most will not; in the end their kid would have seen the same results as if they played in these other non ecnl leagues (who knows maybe even got more exposure Big Fish little pond)

Anonymous said...

I don't think anyone is under the assumption that ECNL = D1 placement automatically. School is always first and if this helps facilitate acceptance to one of those programs thats great. If it helps her get into a D2 or D3 that SHE wants to go to and feels that a D2 ir D3 has a better fit thats great too...dont totally disagree about big fish, small pond, but you better stick out and outshine or you will be a small fish in a small pond.

I don't think the Copa player gets it.

Honey your club cheated and got caught. Your coach had to leave. The best thing you can do is stop mentioning Copa for awhile.

There would be no badmouthing if your club had been ethical. You're old enough to know the difference between right and wrong.

Let it go for awhile and then come back with the RAH RAH.

I spoke to a COPA parent this week. US club investigated former coach and COPA after a complaint was filed about coach. US club found no wrong with Copa. Coach was going to banned for a year for issues with an older team until coah committed multiple crimes against COPA as coach was running back to England. and now is getting a lifetime ban because of the crimes. Ban will be up on the suspended coaches list on internet. Coach is the one pounding the blog against COPA for some sort of revenge. I hear outside of some injuries the team is committed and happy with new coach.

434 Thanks Mom. Truth is NJX just missed last 3 shooters, including the final shooter in sudden death.....one over the top and two not hit with power. Easy saves if guessed correctly which is what happened. We lucked out tho. NJX had an offensive opportunity breakaway with a numerical advantage when our coach starts yelling that our keepers shoe was untied. So the ref blows the whistle, stopping their advantage and let's our defender tie her shoe. Truly lucky indeed.

Brick had 6 shots on goal all night, had trouble possessing the ball, NJ Rush won every 50/50 ball and played better combinations. Referees called a very fair game for both sides, Brick had at least 8 direct kicks 25 yards out and could not score.

Hard loss for Brick and a good win for Rush,
Both teams played hard.

Anonymous said...

Congrats to the Rush for doing what they needed to do to advance. No excuses ever after a loss as that's what we have been taught but let's set the record straight. Game was not a well played game as most of the game was played in the air which resembled more of a tennis match then soccer match. How many shots did Brick have on goal maybe the six you say but Rush had maybe one that could be considered a shot as most were dump ins hoping for someone to run to it. Was the ball out on the end line before it got played for the goal late in the game can't say from where I was sitting but our girls didn't think so but that doesn't mean it wasn't. 2 take downs from behind in the box you would have thought at least 1 would have been called as many fouls were called against Rush in the game & 2 just outside the box against Brick but they weren't but that isn't something all of us have not seen before. Game was played in Rush's style which is why you can say they were the better team. Brick let it get to pk's where Rush made all 5 & Brick 4 game over. No sour grapes as I said there are no excuses. Good luck to Rush & the other remaining 3 teams but day this team is over us just ridiculous & doesn't warrant a further response.

Rush is a bully tactic team every time. The defense relies on pushing and fouling constantly and sometimes they get away with it and sometimes they lose because of it - depends on the ref.
If you let them get to pk's, then too bad for you. They can't outplay a tactical team so your tactics must have been off a little - or you played not to lose again.

Guys with all respect we are talking about Rush.
Please, brick had a bad game , let's not analyse this .
I they play another 100 times rush win one on PK again.
I look at the state cup and it is a very poor event. Whoever wins is not to be consider the best in the state. The best are not even there. There were good high level game's this weekend and we waist time analyzing a team like rush?

Not believable. Copa didnt write that, they are busy fixing their team and No one would be dumb enough to write that. Enough already, just stop, no one believes it is Copa.

Hamilton plays football not soccer. They constantly take girls out in every game they play. And if you play them on their fields the refs call Nothing.

Refs are scheduled by an assignor and randomly done, so your assumption that they get special treatment is nothing more than sour grapes.

Doesn't sound like sour grapes from Brick as they stated Rush did what they needed to do to win & whether it's pretty or not it's just about moving on anyway possible which is what it sounds like they did.

Let's hope brick learns from gfa,freehold,copa,Jackson and the rest of the so called top teams,just let the kids play and you stay off the blog...

Two things after reading through the comments today.

1. It's not the referee's fault. You don't know what bad refereeing looks like. I've been coaching for 30+ years. If you think it's bad now, your head would've exploded back in the day.

2. It's still "youth" soccer. Children playing an adult game. Everything is about to change in the next 2 years. U16 soccer is a completely different game. Speed and strength are supplanted by skill and brains. Many posters here are in for a rude awakening.

You're comparing apples and watermelons. Brick parents aren't arrogant and delusional. They come here to defend their children and their team, that's all.

Hey, you can't win them all unfortunately. Brick just came off of a big EDP Cup win, and the EDP title is still up for grabs. They're not going anywhere. Rush got the better of them on one night, unfortunately it was a big night. Great job by the Rush girls! Refs, bad calls, irregardless...you can't discount that the Rush girls played a hell of an aggressive, hungry game.

Arrogant to say the least. I'm 40+ years old, and I know EXACTLY what bad refereeing looks like. It certainly happened last night, and unfortunately at this level, it happens way too often. These guys/gals are either flat out afraid to make a game affecting call (right or wrong) or the other side of it is they are huge ego maniacs that absolutely MUST decide the outcome of a game. I've seen both way too often. And I must say, I do NOT remember refs being this bad "back in the day", like when I was playing.

Anonymous said...

You all make me laugh. If they didnt make the call you would say how great it was that the ref let play go on. BUT because it went against you the ref was horrible. Act like an adult and try, just try to watch a game without a rooting interest. Really the way to do it.

Refs, thank you for your time. Without you NONE of this would be possible. Yes you will make mistakes, you are not MLS refs are you? Again, give them a break, they are doing their best I am sure.

If Copa suffers a loss to new Hyde they will definitely not win EDP bracket and down goes their ranking. You heard it here first.

Plus they will loose to commack and GFA too.

has been said many times before,not the same team anymore,heading back to 4th bracket in any strong tourney.

Copa was never a strong team. 3rd level, average. C level at best.

The NJ Rush vs Brick game was a great game on both sides. Our girls probably won most of the balls in the middle of the field and probably Brick controlled the ball a little more than us. It was a physical game played by both sides as it always has been whenever we played Brick. Where there questionable calls? Yes, on both sides of the ball against both teams. The game could've gone either way. But one thing that put us over the top is how our girls respond to our coach. Our girls believe in our coaches and love the positive reinforcement, the feeling that every single player on our team is equally important. And it showed in the way our girls played. Congrats to Brick for a hard fought game but especially to our girls who continue to make us proud!!

Please Rush parent! Your team is one of the dirtiest teams out there. And as soon as a team gives it back you are a bunch of cry babies....

9:25 it was a 2-0 hbc lead with hbc missing 3 starting players when the 4th starter left the game it became 2-1. Unfortunately 10 minutes into the 2nd half 2 starting center defenders went down making it a total of 6 starters out of the game. The igfa girls play very nice soccer and are a very good team. I don't believe thers are many teams out there that can play with that many players out. Look forward to playing again.

I just vomited in my mouth. Come on mom give it a rest. "Make us proud". I live 100miles away. I've never heard of these teams till I read this blog. Outside of Nj know one knows or cares who you are. Perhaps eventually we will meet. Idk. But you guys need your own blog away from the rest of us grounded in reality. You could call it NJ soccer drama. Bash each other all day. And realize know one cares. I doubt anyone has ever said oh God we are in Bricks bracket or Copas bracket. My older daughter did play against Brick one year at Delco. The Copa team had like 8 billion points and was very highly ranked. They couldn't get the ball across midfield against my daughters team. Whom I consider decent but not awesome. Another case of NJ GS Hype. Try holding and intelligent soccer conversation please.
