Simple keep your elite player off the HS team?let us unskilled players enjoy the beautiful game.I bet she will be in the DA next year anyway
I bet she will!
Is the Indoor State Cup an actual thing? Does anybody other than STA actually play in this tournament?
Stallions play everything :)We were in it a few years back. The event is fine but probably shouldnt be called STATE CUP
The place that hosts is small and smells like the inside of a soccer bag!
It's all about club marketing. People who don't kow any better (usually at younger ages) will look at the website and see "oooh, look at all the state champioships"This must be the place to be.
Penn Fusion Birth Year ID Events2001 birth yearFeb 7 and Feb 28RSVP
Looks like all the major clubs and academies are hosting birth year ID events. Good luck to all!
Huge shake ups are upon us. The clubs won't play their junior 00s up because the 98/99 age groups are going to be overcrowded already. Some of the best 01 will play up on '00. ECNL clubs may have some '01 and '00 new blood coming in for tryouts and the age pure training (scouting) sessions to try their luck with the reshuffling. If they are first quarter kids they might have a good chance to be starters on the new age pure teams. Buying into the ecnl marketing scheme for one year before the DA shakes things up yet again. Going to be uncomfortable this spring as kids are manuevering for position and status.
Time for Basketball
is this thing still on??
indoor state cup prediction winners this Monday? I give nod to FC Berna?
Yawn......anyone have a topic that matters?
Slick must have gotten a job...lol
hey 237Slicks team will win the indoor state cup AGAIN....Remember they win everything indoors.......Just ask Splash....6-2....plus they need the points...
Anyone know the brackrts or schedule for Manhattan?
Manhattan is a poorly run tournament. Expect brackets and schedules 5-7 days before the tournament.
that is sad about KOC. Many decent teams attending. But I think holding off for Jeff cup instead. Indoor state cup GFA winner? lolhey, it is some decent soccer in winter time is all I can say.
You don't get points for indoor games @10:54! And you must be in love wit slick because you can't seem to keep him out of your mouth. Get a room loverboy!
This guy from IGFA calling slick out is a real D Bag! Your kid is playing mid bench these days looking like the Italian Stallions assistant coach! Hey remember when your kid used to be good....I don't!
Stallions win handily at indoor state cup. They played some good soccer, STA did well also. Good ball movement, set plays, great defense. Not surprised to see these two in final. NJ Elite and FC Berna had their chances as well, but could not score.
NJ Stallions Indoor State CHAMPS!
The real test comes in May. Enjoy the win. We all know that indoor soccer is just that, indoor soccer.
Indoor. Lmao. So they give trophies for that? What a joke
So they have to give trophies out for something to be considered legit? As far as I'm concerned ANY touches are good touches and beneficial.
@1:49 yes, agreed, so much bitterness on this blog. These girls worked real hard, I was there. This was not for the faint hearted for sure. It was rock em sock em soccer. Great touches. Venue is not the best but used to bad venues indoor.
Stallions are the best team . Indoor state champ ! That is all you can say.
Stay off the blog gfa coach,please worry about your own.
Ondoor soccer is a very good technical way to be ready for the season .Do not why people do not understand that.
I heard the Stallions were placed in the easier bracket of that phony indoor state cup. I also heard that the STA team they played in the finals were made of mostly U14 players. STA had a bad showing not being able to beat NJ Elite, barely beating Legacy, and Old Bridge giving them a run for their money too. Let's not forget Stallions were man handled by IGFA at NEWSS!
When is the stallions parade?
not sure about the STA make up. But the U14 team is very good as well, so if it was a mix not surprised. Stallions played well. The Berna, OB, NJ Elite and STA group was the better group hands down.
gfa mom are you off your meds again?
Good tourney on Saturday night at SportsDome in Waldwick. WCFC, STA, GFA and NYSC, should be fun for the girls, and parents. Good luck to all, and enjoy!
Old bridge?? I hoped you thanked them for the donation. It always nice to have a layup game in a tournament.
Stallions parade is at your mom's house. Everyone gets a turn.
Bring it on!!!!IGFA is still the best team around,we prove it everytime we play.We have beating every one in the state...So just leave us alone..,And wish your kid could play with us.
9:44 troll. Now go ahead and answer to yourself. We are tired of you pretending to be from gfa .go away
6:18 really classy, nice considering there are minor in this blog.
Hey 944There is a reason you are at igfa,so just stay there
10:11 - Please tell me you don't think a parent wrote that (6:18). If you can't see that it's a player writing that, then there's no hope for you. Over half of these posts are from the players.
Whats up with IGFA,3rd bracket at manhattan???
Relax.... Just preliminary... Just saying
It is not THE IGFA PSA. So, the placement is appropriate!
US Club state cup drawhttp://www.bracketmaker.com/tlist.cfm?tid=462021
What's up with Crush in the second tier of state cup?
Crush, South Jersey Academy and NJCSA are all looking for an easy win to use in their Marketing materials. With the big age group switch what says it better than: "come spend $5K and get on a State Cup Champion team." They are looking for those parents stupid enough to "Drink to Kool-aid." Have you not seen the girls from Barracudas wearing their State Cup jackets acting like they are the number 1 team in state!! What would be great is if a team like Boca or Millstone wins this group. Real teams in high bracket.
Why is TSF in the Super Group? They are going to get destroyed! I feel sorry for that age group give all that has happened to them thanks to you know who!
Barracudas have the right to wear the jacket . They are state champion . Stop the hate
State champs indeed - of the B and C level teams.
NJ Crush and NJCSA should be embarrassed being in the lower state cup. All so they can say they are the best of the worst. Bridgewater says they are a top team and also join level 2 along with jersey United Spartans who will tell you how great their program is.
IGFA is the only state champion at this age.
The only thing IGFA are good at is trolling this blog! Your coach/owner will be your demise! they will not repeat as State Champions! Here come the Stallions!

Where do the NJ STALLIONS ACADEMY FREEDOM NPL train? and does anyone know if this team is splitting or staying together?This is the only NJ team i See in RCL D1 with a shot a National league in addition to NPL two positives in my opinion.
We r splitting to calendar year. A select player or two might play up but because our roster size is so large the team can't stay together with other 2000 players on the team above us also competing for spots. You can have our spot. I am leaving this big mouth coach.
I would assume all teams are splitting up to abide by the new calendar year mandate. This will shift players around. The teams who retain more of their current core and who can pull in some talent from other teams not so fortunate with the split will have the advantage. If your coach is moving your team up to u17 next year you should be worried and question them. Your daughter is entering the most important showcase years and this will put her at a disadvantage. She will be playing against girls with a years more training. Plus, how do you think tournament seeders are going to treat a team that is playing up? They won't care what you accomplished at u15. They will give you at most the 4th bracket of top tournaments. Good luck drawing college coaches to your games. Start planning your moves now people. Thing are going to move fast in the spring and options will close out quickly.
Wow the Manhattan tournament has a pretty weak field which explains why the college coaches hosing are weak. Brackets can't be final some movement is expected.
The girls that are freshman born in 2000 have no choice @10:50. Some of them playing on a top 10 team at this age group will be playing on a much lower ranked team come the fall. This mandate is so stupid. Keep your eyes open as the next step is to eliminate age groups. In the future it will look like this:U18U16U14U12Smaller clubs will be wiped out! If your kid plays in PDA, STA, Matchfit, or any of the bigger clubs, she should be fine. If your kid plays for one of the smaller clubs then she is ultimately screwed and if she's stuggling at this age group, you might as well start looking for another sport for her to play.
Not true. Those age groups will be for the development academy only. U.S. Soccer announced their plans to move forward in fall of 2017 to mirror boys program. The current boys clubs have preached my teams at u17, u15, u13. http://www.ussoccerda.com/USSoccer-to-Launch-Girls-Development-Academy-Fall-2017
From the start, the program will feature three combined age groups: U-14/15, U-16/17 and U-18/19. Clubs will be expected to train a minimum of four times a week. The players in the Girls' Development Academy clubs will play exclusively within the Academy program and will not play in any outside competition, such as ODP or high school. The use of combined age groups will require clubs to form teams with a balanced roster of players from two distinct birth years. The games will be scouted by U.S. Soccer and the program will serve as a pathway to U.S. Soccer's Youth National Teams.In addition to combining the most elite players from each birth year to formthe mixed age group player pool, coaches will be encouraged to play their most elite players "up" on an older age team within the club to help accelerate development.Competitively, the program competition will feature local and regional matches as well as regional and national events with playing rules based on international standardsno re-entry, limited substitutions (3 per game)proper rest and recovery periods. The season will be structured over a 10-month periodSo for example Team A (16/17) will have 2002 and 2001 playersTeam B (18/19) will have 2000 and 1999 players22 players on a roster with only 14 playinglots of minutes for the top of the class and this is who this is for.This is DA only You wanted it you got it. All other clubs will use single ages
So for the DA they are mixing age groups but for everyone else it is calendar year? That it ass backwards. What are the folks at USSF someking?
@1:12 yes I know current 2000s have no choice but to play up at U17 next year. My point was coaches who want to keep their current teams intact (2000s and 2001s) and play them all up at U17 next year. My argument there was it would hurt the girls chances of showcasing themselves. Also not all the bigger clubs outside of ecnl maybe will be fine. The 2001s losing there 2000s will hope to have a good U14 team of 2001s to fill in. That is not always the case and will cause people to look for better situations.
6:48 - why do you keep regurgitating the same thing over and over? It's the same thing for every age group so what's the big deal? Get over it already!
It means your team is done,your 2001 are already looking for a new team
The 2001s will be fine! It is the 2000s that have to worry. Some of your daughters playing on high ranked teams that are 2000s will be exposed in the new age group.
yes the '00s will be competing with the U16 older 00s with an extra year of higher level competition. SOme of the best u15 00s will actually benefit developmentally from the challenge. others will have to drop down a level. Therin lies the basis for the angst.
Well said @9:00!
Anyone know if they will be re-doing the brackets for the Manhattan KOC? Flighting seems to be all over the board
Doesnt look too bad to me.Appears GFA isnt sending their first teamWho else is improperly flighted?
Manahattan Cup looks a little weak this year! I would guess this has something to do with cancelling this tournament 2 years in a row!
Gfa only has one team....with gfa mom talking about every team,things get back to people,and that put you in 3rd bracket...they beter not apply to pda,look what happen last year. ..
Hey 8:55....you are incorrect. GFA is not sending the starters to Manhattan!! Find a new topic that you have better knowledge of...like eating or or riding your daughter coattails.
Princeton IGFA are playing got soccer games. Team will split by brith year next year and the ranking of the u14 team below them is low so their normal girls are playing extra tournaments to build points for the 2001s this's that account next year and the 2000s will keep the original got soccer account.
10:41 sure ,lol you know it all. lol
I don't understand why this person is so caught up in what GFA is doing all the time.....can someone explain? Also, can you imagine how much more beneficial it would be for him if he worried about his own child / team !
10:41So you're saying they're pulling a JH/Brick/NJ Wildcat move? Classic!!!
Ignore the troll... Any games this weekend?
MANHATTAN SC KICK-OFF CLASSIC 2016 schedule out - http://events.gotsport.com/events/default.aspx?EventID=50022
Stallions have a chance to gain some ground next weekend. It would be nice to have several NJ make noise at this age bracket. It show that in this age bracket NJ has good talent to compete in the region. Hopefully top NJ teams represent the state well outside of the region too.
Something not right,homdel in top bracket, chaos 2nd and gfa 3rd???

No this is not your new board. Until August go back to the u14 . Bye
The gist is all we need and like to hear. The other data not needed.
Welcome to the U-15 board! Now you see why there are 10000 posts on your board and only 767 here. Thanks for posting something with actual info as opposed to what's normally found here.
I bet you and gfa mom will be good friends,go back to u14 board.

NJ Stallions has 29 college commits in the 2016 graduating class. 20 D1 schools, 4 Ivy League and 1 D3 which is the best academic school in the country and current D3 National champion. They have the most impressive list across the nation:http://www.njstallions.com/national-signing-day-2016---nj-stallions-girls-class-of-2016
College commits is just that a verbal... Anyone can commit to school once they are interested and that by no means implies or suggest that you will be playing soccer ... Keep drinking the crack.... That my friends is call propaganda... People could publish what they want to sell you the bridge... Go back to u14 blog... And keep serving ECNL JUICE soon in enough DA WILL send that whole pipe dream to the garbage...
7:19 I have a question for you gurus - my daughter wants to go to Duke - she has the grades to get into any school. So because she plays soccer a club is going to say they had a Duke commit when graduates or any school for this question?
9:26 you are correct. So much of this is marketing.Many of the clubs in NJ are better at marketing than anything else. With all of the shake up of birth year and the DA the key is to find the strongest program that is appropriate for each player. That requires being objective about our own children which seems to be scarce in youth soccer. You need to find the team and coach that are best for each individual player. Everyone on here needs to realize that the right fit is different for each family. Regardless of club, the player/family needs to do work in the college search
926 and 948- some of what your saying is correct but what your implying is not. A girl can only commit to a school she has an offer to play soccer at. Clubs will use that for marketing purposes. A club will NOT use a girl that has not signed a NLOI to play soccer for marketing. So no if your daughter goes to duke and doesn't play soccer she will not be listed as a commit.
1:10 Question - I'll take this convo a little further - lets say her grades get her in and she enrolls with no NLOI. But she makes the team as a walk on - plays good enough and is already in the school so nothing for the coach to lose. What then? She made school on her own and plays soccer for the school - does the club then use her as a stat?
1:10 I am not going to stir the pot by naming names but I know of a commitment page on a club site that lists former players "commitments". No more than half of them went to play soccer. That is a fact. The club did not lie, these girls put deposits down to attend these schools. The assumption for those looking at the page is that they all went to play soccer, but it does not state that anywhere on the page. Marketing!
1:36 PM She could be listed as an alumni to the club if she ends up playing but not on their teams list of College Commitments when she grads in 2020 and not listed with their Teams Signing day feb 2020 or whenever that date is. Because there was never an athletic scholarship offer or was she considered a recruited player defined as such by the NCAA. If she does go that route Id say its more to do with the determination and will of the player than the development of the Club anyway. 2:18pm A lot of clubs also list players that have left that club years ago as their list of commits. Clubs consider it as they helped develop that player. Other clubs use players that have just came to their club this winter as part of their commit list even though they might have only played one or two games with them. your right its all a Marketing and money grab. No true development going on. But a club should be listing girls that aren't playing that sport in college as part of their commit or alumni list. If parents were smart a simple google search could go along way.
Who cares? You are all crazy!
So we went to the Penn Fusion age group training today. About 50 kids. Most look to be Penn Fusion players with their practice shirts and gear on. About 15 kids appear to be from outside the club. They put them on a feild together and mix in a few Penn Fusion kids and play like 7v7. Tthere are about 6 coaches watching attentively and it looks legit. 4 are attentive to this group. One is with all Penn Fusion kids and another seems to be with kids who all stayed together on one field. They had black uniforms and i think I think maybe the west chester club travel kids.Then the all Penn Fusion group comes over and they make teams of new kids versus Penn Fusion kids. The new kids look to hold their own and a few actually stand out. I am thinking wow the Penn Fusion parents are probablt pretty worried about their little Mias spot right now.I was shocked when walking to the car my kid says, "Well the guy in charge says that there aren't any opennings on the ECNL team. That if you are not already Penn Fusion only NPL is open". WTF??? Why hold this event and have us travel over there, coaches spending their time and really watching too if it's a farce? DId anyone else's kid say this to them or did my kid lose something in translation? Should we even bother to call the club and ask what's up?
There was far more than 15 outsiders, unless you are talking about 15 outsiders just in ECNL group? Was your kid with the ecnl players (far field), NPL (nearest bleachers) or WC groups (on right side of field)?
There is always a spot open for the right kid. That kid is rarely ever found at an open tryout. They aren't displacing a kid because your kids shows they may be better in a tryout. Building a team is hard work and player turnover makes it much harder.
the group of 7 Penn legacy players who were there were pulled aside and told they would not all end up together
Stallions is ver impressive, but not as impressive as MFA last year, and this year both PDA and MFA had more D1 Commits. Stallions have a great club, and this group is special. The kid who left for MFA I assume both clubs counted, which is fine.
I assume that's means they were not allseen as being at the ecnl level? NPL for some.
What age group was this? With this BYC I can't follow who's where on this blog anymore. People seem to be jumping boards already.
PL had 2 girls at the 01 event, the group of 7 were 02's. Not sure why we are talking about the 02's on this board. It's not supprising there are no spots on the current ECNL rosters. PF unlike NJ clubs carry only 18 and they are full. These ID sessions were for next years teams.
Really??? Thanks! I think everyone thought these ID events were for this year.
I'm not sure whether that was sarcasm or not. But the PF site was pretty clear about what these ID events were. They went so far as to say no one will be contacted for given an evaluation and that no spots would be offered until the official tryout process in spring. Of course we all know that's not entirely true but for the most part....
517 is probably talking about the '00s. There were more outsiders in the 01 group. My guess is that they will only take a new player if she is going to be a starter. Why replace a bench player with another bench player at u17? Its not like a high ceiling project kid will have enough time to pay off. Both the u15 and u16 teams are doing pretty well right now maybe they don't want to mess up the chemistry unless the kid is a real stud. Probably only a few of those players out there at 00 and they are well known. PF are involved in ODP so they have a pretty wide scope on the player landscape. Most are at PDA and I don't think they will leave Mecca unless there are play time issues.
That stallion team was lighting in a bottle. That team has been together since an early age and has followed the coach through good and bad and through 3 different clubs. They have showcased and won everything there was to win. Congrats to them. Don't believe for a second that the same success will be extended to this age group.
Says the bitter parent whose daughter couldn't make the team.
There are players listed on the Stallions site that have played about 3 games. And played for different clubs until this fall season. SC is good but he will never achieve the same result again. His current U16 is a yearly revolving door with couple core players that have not left yet. Each season the new players are weaker and weaker.
Commits and actually signed to play soccer are two different things. You can commit for academically reason and that is the case of most of the girls posted there. Please let's not be so stupid
@9:48 seems to have a crystal ball with their definitive outlook on SC's future. Can you also tell us the upcoming winning lottery numbers please. Salty much?
1st comment on the new page!!! Yay
Like I said that Stallion team is something special. Before the ECNl they would go head to head with the PDA Arsenal team that won the ECNL national championship this past year.All girls have been ID'ed and click on their indivisual bio as they are all highly decorated. The team have constantly been top 3 in the country. (yes according to GS)Why on earth would you think this group who hasnt won anything would mature into anything similar to that team.BTW, in terms of playing soccer and especially in D1, if you committ to a school, you are committing to play soccer to the school once you are accepted and they are committing money towards your tuition, otherwise you are just accepted not comitted.
12:12 - Nobody in this blog cares about the current U16 NJ Stallions team. Really, we don't! Please go back to the U16 blog until the fall.
12:12 we all understand that. The point of that conversation is that there are clubs taking liberties by calling college choices commitments and leading people to believe that all players listed committed for soccer and went on to play.As stated, a simple google search will tell
417You must be talking about the large academy (not really) that sends all its committed players toD3 schools
No not speaking about one specific club and this may come as a shock, some girls that are capable od D1 soccer choose D3 schools. D3s are smaller schools and generally have high academics which in many cases are a better fit for some girls. So to talk about them in a derogatory way insinuating that girls that play there were not good enough to play D1 shows real ignorance. While many D3 programs are just decent, there are a number of them that could beat the smaller D1s.
People on here talk of what they do not know. The girls that left for MFA only left this Xmas. She used the special talent of the team and coach to get to Georgetown - then didn't want the commitment of playing as a u18 so left for an easy ride at a lesser team with HS friends. Even though she used the team to get to a top school, Stallions as a club did not even recognize her on the published list above. They also didn't use players from the very same team that graduated a year earlier that went to UNCW and Seton Hall. PDA and MFA as 2016's don't come close in this age group. As for the u15's, you should watch them play before realizing they have every chance of becoming the same success story.
Sorry "girl" not plural.
@12:09 am - nice backhanded comments towards a bunch of kids who put in unreal amount of sacrifice to achieve something pretty amazing.how about you could argue that he used her and other players special talents to create this team by recruiting them to join at U15. after continually losing to these players for years - makes sense. if you can't beat them - get them to join!
Go back to u16 blog,We want to talk about slick and gfa mom on this blog.
Any thoughts about the other Pa Ecnl teams. PF seems closed but want about CFC or Bucks? The last 2 seemed open to bringing new girls and seem to offer great exposure. I know little about these teams since they don't generally play an EDP team outside of a tournament. Thanks in advance for your insight.
I heard that registrations for PDA tryouts are staggering. Last few years their numbers were lower than normal with only returning players trying out sprinkled with a few new faces but with the new age mandate, this is like a blessing in disguise for them.
LOL...the only reason that PDA tryout numbers were previously low was because BB thought his team that won at NPL or region 1 at U11 was good enough to compete with clubs that had wide tryouts for the formation of their ECNL teams. He was wrong, he is no longer there and thus the increased tryout numbers.
There were 80+ girls at PDA tryouts last year for this age group.
PDA has 3 teams in this age group with roughly 23-25 girls on each roster, that roughly around 70 girls! That means only 9-10 new faces tried out! Please stop the madness! STA had 100 girls trying out for this age group with only 2 teams of 20 player rosters, those are real numbers!
I thought PDA had 4 teams in this age group!
They have 4 but only 2 really matter.
IGFA beat every PDA so none of them really matter!
Sta had over 100girls at the age group so PDA is not a big deal
We get it, back to the same old conversation. IGFA is the best in the country, STA rules and PDA is a waste of time and money. And the Wildcats and Cedar Stars cheat.
Why are they in third bracket at manhattan?
Does anyone have any insight about CFC or fc Bucks Ecnl? I hate to change the subject but the above has already been covered over the last 2 years enough.
CFC and BUCKS ECNL will get your kid exposure. To be honest though you should go watch them play and see for yourself. If you are really interested contact the coach s/he may invite to a training session.
If you have to ask at this age then your kid is where she belongs, if not there are three clubs that are tops,do your homework. ..dont play stupid!!!
She has trained and was invited to join next years 01 Ecnl team after an id day. I have only spoken to a coach but our intentions are to bring her to more trainings in the spring. Her current coach and team will change due to club mandated birth year. That's why we are looking. Ecnl teams are tough to scout online because their history is tougher to find and see common opponents. I was just asking before we could get her out this spring. Any other intelligent insight might help her and others during this crazy time.
@7:15 for you and the rest of the idiots on here put all the money you spend on I'd camps and training in the bank and presto college will be paid for news flash 98 percent of your kids aren't going anywhere.
7:48 the funny thing is to me- it shows that they care about their kids and regardless if they have the goods or not - their kids tried and if nothing comes from it they tried. Money is obviously not an issue for them because if it was they wouldn't go - so the only real idiot is you because you think they don't know that 1% of the youth soccer players actually make it just like in any other sport.7:15 all the results can be found on the ECNL website that you need -other events don't mean a thing to the ECNL clubs they have their events, the ECNL events and league play - nothing more is needed if you are in that world. I agree with watch how CFC/Bucks play, if your kid is a defender/goalie they will get a lot of action if they are an attacking players good luck as both the u14 & u15 struggle and in regards to PA soccer no attacking players moving will impact these teams as the top ECNL teams can defend really wellNEFC aka Boston will probably be tops 01 followed by in no order PDA/WC/PF/Stars and CT with others that should be okay - so can CFC and Bucks be nice - yes - but it will take alot to make a playoff run3;16 that doesn't surprise me as they have solid teams at u14 and u15
How about you worry about your own bank account, mine is quite fine but thanks for your concern!

Does anyone know with the birth year change can a team play up to stay together?
Is there any guidelines as far as a team playing up. % of players at that year
No there is not. Play up is open
But will Princeton new coach/owner let entire team play up? I doubt he will want to mess up multiple age groups to cater to one team. It's about building a program

One team is all Princeton has. Of course they will stay together. Good Luck next year.
4:16 we will be fine but thank you , good luck to you too.
it's not how you start but how you finish... PSA is doing respectively well in Manhattan ... It will get better overtime how many clubs does watchung have?
Congrats to region 1 00 Girls for winning the Costa Rica tournament.
Another poor showing for NJX at MSC Spring kick off
If Princeton has one team, how they could play 2 events at the same time. Manhattan tournament and regional championship game at the same time. Some people assume too much.
Why do you care so much about NJX??? Not happy where you are?
I guess NJ Elite woke up from that pipe dream they've been on the last few months. What happened to them having best midfielder in the state? Did she even play? Lost to a fake World Class team made up of rec players from Wayne! Pathetic!
Has MC stepped down as GFA U15 coach?
@1:23 yes he did he's training your mother in bdsm
Instead of being ashamed for the language used in a blog where also young kids are on , let's keep insulting people . Great example for our kids. You all should be ashamed and I beg the blog administrator to stop this disgusting behavior asap.
Same dad's who left igfa and still not happy with there new clubs and then there newer clubs and then there newest club stop by igfa say hi we have some dad's who would love to talk to you .
I love how these IGFA parents who are completely new to the team talk crap like their kid had a part in making that team number 1!
Was your kid on the team when IGFA won in Indiana. The answer is NO NO NO NO NO ! Just stop !
Figured that would keep you quiet.
WOW. I see the Wildcats can't even get into Jefferson Cup without using the Brick Fury name and JH's connections. What an absolute disgrace. I wonder if the Jeff Cup coordinators realize that its a counterfeit team. What a joke.
That's old news. They won't be able to donut next year after they leave.
Which ECNL team did Copa goalie go to?
a desparate one...LOL
No need for comments like that. Was just wondering what club she went to.
Copa lost both goalies at this age in the past year to ECNL teams. First one went to Splash, and now this one has gone to Match Fit.
Wow, they lost two? I assume they have 3? If not, they'll be in trouble without a goalie.
Last year goalie went to splash and sat all spring last year and is now on hornets.
Dear Club owners and coaches, please stop making parents buy new uniform kits every year! Addidas to Nike to Puma back to Addidas.....make up your goddam mind already!SincerelyDisgruntal Parent
So how quickly does Ecnl become irrelevant? If the top Ecnl clubs have boys Academy teams one could conclude that they will try to get girls academy? Pda, Continental etc. If that happens how quickly does Ecnl become watered down?
Ecnl is strong and will stay strong
Great answer. Are you related to Saddams information minister. Please explain answer. How can ecnl survive this and remain as relevant. I had every intention of my daughter joining her friend at PF. Emailed coach and received and invite for one of the "closed" teams you talk about. But now I see Ecnl losing relevance. Ecnl parents I know also tell me so. They say they want there daughters committed by next year then they won't care. From there stand point ecnl will be watered down competitively but still have good coaches. So there kids will get good coaching and be able to play school ball. The other question is how low will the bar go to add clubs to ecnl when clubs leave.
Not the poster above but I agree that the ECNL will not become irrelavant as the girls DA is created. Here are my reasons.1) You have to look at the end game for both genders. If the top 1% of boys play for a DA they're end game could be to play professionally. Domestic or abroad, best case scenario to be brought up to the senior team for the academy they play for. (ie Red Bulls) Otherwise for the boys all other leagues and school camps will get them visibility to schools to continue on their journey.What is the end game for the DA girls side? Is it to play in the NWSL or national team? Unless you look like Alex Morgan and can get sponsorships from other companies, you better get used to living near the poverty line and working every clinic, soccer camp you can to make ends meet. If your daughters end game is to continue to play at a top school get a degree and continue with life than all other leagues will always be a viable and successful option. The ECNL showcases, for example, are always filled with top schools and US Soccer scouts anyway so the first outcome is still always possible. 2) There has not been any confirmation that all NWSL team's will create academies. If you are looking at clubs like PDA to join, you are wrong. PDA has already declined the opportunity. From the club's point of view, the already crowded training facilities will have to fit in how many more teams for a minimuim of 4 times a week (possibly hiring more staff)?Are they truly going to be like the boys and be free to play? Which clubs would be willing to absorb those costs? As I said the biggest and most successful club in NJ is not.IMHO, girls that want to continue on to college but still play the beautiful game will continue playing in the current top league (ECNL) and it may be the DA that will be somewhat watered down as girls on estabilished teams will not want to mess with recruiting years to be in an unknown situation. Of course they will be some that leave and girls who currently would not make the local ECNL squad will try going to the DA. DA may be successful in the future but this age group will be long gone...just my opinion.
I would agree. Wont affect this age group to much. Pda declined? Interesting since my daughters club has the academy on the boys side and is applying for the girls. Doc said he is 70% sure they will get it. Perhaps they did offer it to a few up front before you cold apply. Just seams odd. My source is our Doc who is my daughters coach. Seams pretty reliable.
There's a new sheriff in town and they are called the NJ Stallions! IGFA dropped to #17 in the nation and are now looking up to the Stallions......let's see what happens after Jeff Cup!
SJEB right on GFA heels too. Best team in the USA was last year.
LOLOL @ the last 2 comments. GFA is still better than both. Stallions are mediocre at best and SJEB has always been a good team.
Who cares about GFA they won't even be playing with us next year. Have fun in U17. Let's see how team spirit holds up when you start losing more than winning. But wait MC said we would be just fine. LOLOLOLOLO!!!
News flash moms. Rankings mean nothing. Especially if your from NJ and your retarded coach doesent follow practice/game ratio. So to see where you really are look at your winning percentage. Then look at your games played. Remember that tournaments list pda don't give points but are much better then maps, rider cup etc. So my daughters lowly team barely has 9000 pts. But that is only in 14 games room GS. With a 85% winning percentage. They haven't lost since Jcup last year. Having played 8 tournaments including pda, casl , Bethesda etc. We will see how they do at Jcup. More likely to lose to a 7500 pt team then some 20,000 pt nye/nj team. They are mostly a joke that end 5-0 us. And we're not that awesome.
If you still think that Got Soccer points mean anything, you should play in MOSA and JAGS. You can rack them up there.
http://youthsoccerrankings.usRecognized as the most accurate rankings although I am sure not perfect. It is updated daily and if you read up on how they assess it makes a lot more sense than GS. Also for anyone who has ever played the top teams on here seems pretty accurate!
So GS points suck now that IGFA isn't number 1, how convenient! Sounds like a lot of butt hurt parents talking smack now that the might have fallen. Stallions are the real deal and will remain number 1 and ahead of IGFA after Jeff Cup! And if Stallions suck so much, why are current active players from IGFA registering for Stallions tryouts? Hmmmmmmm........
This blog has been saying that got soccer point are not good even when Igfa was number one so nothing new , relax. Stallions are a good team . Yes all current player from Igfa are registered to stallions tryouts hoping for a chance. Lol
we beat stallions 2-0 last time we played them. And it should have been worse. So go away. Take your mucky mom loving coach with you.
Hey Sta mom relax, you beat stallions 2-0 out of a lucky day. Stallions is ten times stronger. And watch out all your current players are registered for our tryouts . Wonder why...
