Who care about where the kid gets developed.
Really is it about development or exposure to the colleges, and a chance to defray that cost or play for the love of the game. cause that is the end of the soccer road for
99%, unless NWSL changes that to maybe 98 %

Copa has a gal playing in college and is listed on the website as a "coaching intern." Her bio says she played her last two years at Copa. Is Copa taking credit for "developing" her? They certainly are taking credit for her playing D1. I think if folks looked further they would see several "later" clubs taking credit for players developed by "earlier" clubs.

Great point as I believe the Wildcats are notorious for doing that!

I think it's healthier to see these lists as just a resource.....showing where graduates are now playing.....

not as some kind of brag list.

"Hey, that #22 I saw play fo Copa - I wonder where she ended up matriculating?"

See the website.


Just information, folks.

Starting to think we might have State Cup brackets before Manhattan flights. How screwed up can they be over there?

I'm sure kids move to different clubs as they get ready to be recruited and think about college. Do college coaches recruit straight up "town" teams?

Anonymous said...

No. You have to do legwork. Not too tough.

If your kid is on a town team and is playing high level soccer touneys she will be spotted!

Now thats funny!

Town teams and High Level soccer do not belong in the same sentence. Long term the strong town teams will not be accepted or placed in the top flights of the big tournaments.

Anonymous said...

Wrong. You do not need to be on a academy team to be in a top tournament or bracket. True, PDA has the edge in placement but the best town teams today are really regional teams (look at the older age groups). They may say "insert town here" but they will have 18 players and 12 or 13 will be from the outside.

Jags top flight for the spring is ultra weak. Brick, NJ Rush, NJX, PDA hornets, wall.

Anonymous said...

Re: Town teams seen by college coaches......

Yeah, occasionally in top tourneys

But what I mean about legwork is you can send video, attend camps at the campuses, e-mail your heart out and alert the coaches where they can see you (may not BE in a tournament but they may have time to check you out if they liked the vid and your demeanor.

Few players should be thinking about college at U13. The chances of injury begin to increase (see Indie Cowie), nothing is guaranteed.

"Town teams and High Level soccer do not belong in the same sentence. Long term the strong town teams will not be accepted or placed in the top flights of the big tournaments."

Obviously an uninformed, ignorant post. There's certainly one exception to that rule, and probably quite a few more. One "town" team up until this season (because of a subpar past season) was in the top flight of almost every tournament, and it has been that way pretty much since the team started. And ther only reason they had a "subpar" season, was because they only play top level teams. Furthermore, EVERYONE knows who they are and they have been playing at or near top level since inception.

are you kidding me Indie Cowie
she is a free style superstar who is probably making a mint doing exhibitions, not sure about her prowess on

Anonymous said...

Post 6:32pm yes there are always exceptions & the team you speak has been in only top tournaments & in flights higher than some of the other teams that people meNtion as the top teams but I think the point was with the ECNL & NPL that may change where only teams associated with those teams will be in the top flights therefore dropping the other teams down. I'm not going to say that some teams can play with the top teams I just believe also that they may no longer get those chances. Kudos to all that they have done & only playing in too tournaments not little ones to get pts but that run may come to an end soon whether it's fair or not isn't going to matter.

Post 7:07 - well said.

Post 6:32 - your comments just prove the point that at some point the club teams will distance themselves from the town teams. You may have played top competition (and good for you for doing so) but the top competition won the games. Obviously there is always an exception but the top tournaments are going to take the top teams (clubs if they can bring multiple teams at multiple age groups)and put them in the top flights. The sad reality is this is a business first and the tournaments are going to cater to the all mighty dollar. If a club can bring 5 teams vs 1 good town team the club will get what they want.

Anonymous said...

At this rate IGFA will be in the next world cup. Amazing what 1 indoor win can do for a team. Who knew?

Anonymous said...

That listing was an incorrect work document. Obvious mistakes if anyone took the time to analyze it properly.

First-Lehigh and Ramapo not in a grouping.
Second-anyone who knows last years EDP, knows there were no blowout games.
Third- in going from one top division of 9 teams to two top
divisions of 16 teams, the league
will add 7 teams from newbies plus
2nd division winners.
Fourth-does anyone really believe
that Brick is a 2nd division team
below some of the teams listed that would move up.

Fifth-If the top division were to stay
at only 9, then downward relagation would be proper.

Sixth-However, if you check the other age brackets ie U-14 etc, you will
see two top brackets with a playoff between the division winners. U-13 started with only
one top division and will now eveolve into two.

It was an obvious working document prior to the meeting.

Anonymous said...

Or add 10 teams to the original 9to form 2 groups of nine with an 8 game schedule and no crossover games.

That would work also to give the U-13 parity with other ages that have 2 or three top divisions.

Anonymous said...

excuse the the error - add nine teams to the original nine to give parity

Brick is definitely not the team they used to be, but I don't think any of those teams except maybe TRIC could be consistent enough to take the flight. They are probably the best of the bunch of bad teams in that division.

That's the way it works if EDP stays with one top division. But as they are going to two top divisions that is not the way it works. All the other age groups have 2 or 3 top divisions.

Remember when the alignments were first announced a year amd a half.
Remember how many folks screamed that that the U-12s weren't being treated correctly. It appears that it
being rectified.

Iam a GFA parent and for the life of me can't understand why everyone is blowing this whole win over PDA out of context. Yes we beat Splash, yes it was a meaningless indoor game and yes our girls were excited. Is that a crime. It's you parents that are making a big deal out if nothing. We have only been around and playing together since August do we need to work our way up there. PDA is always the team to best no matter what you are playing 5v5, 7v7 or outdoor.. That's an accomplishment that you guys should be proud of. But it's awful to hear you make excuses when you lose (we didn't have our starters, we weren't trying etc) just accept the loss and move on. I don't believe for a minute that no matter what type of game SPLASH is playing that they aren't playing to win.. That's BS... Iam very proud to be on GFA and I'm hoping that we continue to get better and better because our girls deserve it. Most if the times it's the parents that ruin the game and cause all of these problems so please, joy know who you are, grow up!! I hope everyone has a good season and your girls stay healthy and have fun.. That's the important thing.. Not all this BS..

Anonymous said...

You silly GFA parent. This is not about the kids. You are obviously new to soccer. This is about the parents!! And their bragging rights. If it were about the kids then you would not see so many parents dragging their kids to team after team - all the while the child is kicking and screaming not wanting to leave her friends.Think of the time these girls spend with their teamates. Would you move them from school to school every year or 2?? But these parents believe this child is so far superior to her teammates....on every team they are on & this child isn't emerging as the superstar because of her teammates. Huh??" It is the best thing for them" And this evaluaton very often comes from a parent who has never played soccer or excelled at any sport for that matter. In these cases, it's not the best thing for her, but for the parents. Look PDA is a top club/academy in the country. They attract many top players. However there are outstanding players that due to many different circumstances choose to not even pursue a spot their - whether they could make the cut or not. GFA - Good Luck you sound like you are making a mark.PDA we all know the deal, you have a top team or THE top team, no need to drive that home by putting the rest of these teams with very talented players down. Go watch any team in the top ten pool and talk to the parents of who you may think is the best player. They probably have some very sensible reasons for staying where they are. On the other hand, there are families that will look to try to make that move and good for them.

Why the hate with NJ Wildcats. Good for them. They are now an approved EDL Club also. They had a prety decent fall as they beat Freehold 2-1 in NJ State Cup, tied Brick 1-1, and TR 1-1 beat NJX 3-0 (nothing big there as Jackson/GFA spanked NJX as well) lost to Americans in double OT 2-1 in state cup quarterfinals and lost in PKS to NJ Crush in the Maps Fall Challenge final. I have seen them play and they are a team on the rise and getting better. Will it be tough for the wildcats, absolutely, but they have proved they can play and compete with the top teams as well. They just might surprse a few teams....You never know in this funny game each weekend....Good luck to all the teams this spring.

Remember they need grades as well which is actually more important. Ask your PDA for the amounts they received this year? Then post so we can discuss. By U18 your daughter will not be on the top team (replaced by other girls), can she cheer as its not later? sorry

Boy, many of you parents really are truly pathetic. Get over yourselves. You make statements and say "we" last time I checked you aren't on the field playing. Talking about scholarships at u13 is absurd. And if they wind up getting one great, it's rarely a full and usually less than half. You knuckleheads seem to forget the economics in that your precious doesn't play in a revenue generating sport. So the scholies are split regardless. The money you spend chasing status is franky better served by being saved vs spent on club, ecnl, or whatever. Half your little princesses won't be playing by the time they are sophs in high school and for the majority of the dropouts it will be because of your obsessive behavior. And the PDA convo is hysterical...all high level clubs will look different in 2-3 short years as better players migrate. And if you were real with yourselves you all know better players exist and are out there. If you don't think the coaches of clubs in ecnl don't know that, you are only fooling yourself. It reminds me of a movie quote, "The time to honor yourself will soon come to an end." PDA, Wildcats, IG whatever....who cares, just let them play and spend your time on more productive stuff than obsessing over got soccer points or who played who in whatever tournament.

Dix Hills a well
After that not much interest.

Top 3 flights will present some good match ups in unfortunately bad weather conditions. Be interesting to see how well Hornets do without loaned players.

Sounds like someone is trying to bate everyone in on bashing teams @ this indoor event. Our team has played there before but not this year & the teams are top level for the most part. Americans are not a great indoor team as they didn't even make the semis but IGFA made the finals!!!! Someone clearly has an issue date I say of jealousy towards a particular team that has done very well up there. Very sad!

What IGFA has to do with indoor state cup? They are not even there this season. Americans will win easy

indoor vs outdoor

different games, good at one does not mean good at the other

Sounds like IGFA is good at indoor, should keep their yappers shut about outdoor until they prove themselves

Anonymous said...

Enough of the indoor garbage - only the team that is there cares. Looks like rivers running down the streets as the snow is already melting quickly. One more storm and then the spring warm up begins. Well into the fifties next weekend as we leave winter behind - fields should be fine.
I like the Americans to shock PDA and really can't see brick beating SJEB. Hornets aren't as strong without their helpers and I think IGA is better anyway.
That would give NJ the first three brackets. After that they are all toss ups and no nj teams strong enough to be considered the easy favorites. Hoping nj takes as many brackets as possible.

Americans beat IGFA 4-0 in the fall at the EDP cup, outdoors.

Enough said.

If I remember correctly, the Americans beat everybody in that weather disaster of a tournament. Conditions were horrible. Yes, the Americans handled the conditions best, but I wouldn't try to read anything into scores those days.

Anonymous said...

I was at the game (IGFA parent). Americans were very good, better, and especially stronger (physically) team.

IGFA was not too long together at this time + had a very weak or rather no goalie at goal.
I believe the game would be a little bit different today. However, in my opinion, I still believe Americans would win. I also believe the quality will be (maybe already is) at the same level soon. Spring will show if our girls' hard work can transform into a consistent performance against the strong/top teams.

The results from the following schedule will show where IGFA is:
MANHATTAN KICKOFF CLASSIC 2014
Jefferson Cup
PDA invitational 2014
Super Y-League
NJ State Cup
EDP 1st Division

Let's be positive and hope our girls will have a great year. The schedule is very busy.

IGFA isn't the only team from NJ playing the Futsal Regionals this weekend. Barons have teams there, Copa have teams there.

Brick was next to last in EDP last fall, with 1 win.

Why do they win their flight at Manhattan against several other teams that were ahead of them in EDP?

Anonymous said...

IGFA is good mid level team.

They are on here just trying to pump up their brand.

Problem with that is that now they have to prove it on the outside field starting at Manhattan.

What happens when you don't advance out of your bracket?

best to stay quiet and let the Spring season begin and let your play do the talking. If you are better, it will be apparent.

Platinum Black looks to be a stronger field of teams than Platinum Red. Yardley and New Hyde Park top flight. Really?

Because my daughter and all the girls are the team are very special girls, mommy says they should win, and daddy agrees. We even talked about how special they were in training with the other parents, we all agree they are very unique and extremely special and talented, and we all agree they should win.

Why? Because they have beaten all of these teams before. They have been at or near the top since they began. And as far as EDP, they were in every game as usual, other than one 3-0 loss. They also had a few key injuries during the season.

I mean this as an honest question, and not a "bash". How do you explain the fact that IGFA is a first division EDP team? Based on what resume exactly? Seriously.

Anonymous said...

Why wildcats is and why freehold then? And why tsf or copa on the other bracket? Could ask the same question for all these teams right?? Why only GFA ? Oh yes not to "bash" right. GFA went up because they won the secon division. Simple.

Gee. Did you happen to see what they did in the second division in the fall EDP? Jealousy.

It's funny how everyone hates PDA but come tryouts they get about 50 girls coming out. I guess it isn't that bad. My daughter was there last year but didn't make it. I'm not bashing them. There is a place for all the girls.

Anonymous said...

If you are talking points rankings you are probably right because PDA does not care about points. They don't have to chase points because they are an ECNL Club. They are better than most of the "points" top ten by miles and I am not a fan of theirs - I feel bad for the girls sold a dream that will be the cannon fodder when the better girls come calling at higher ages.
If you don't think they are the odds on favorites as the regional champions you are just plain stupid. I picked the Americans to surprise them in manhattan, but that will be enough of a wake up call for them to go on a run.
Brick is not the team that they used to be and their bully tactic ge play won't work much longer because the size of their oponnents is getting closer.
Barons are erratic and IGA will overwork their girls into injuries so parity will rule the EDP. Watch the movement for brick and iga next year too. Splash and Americans will stay the two best.

IGA only a two player team,going no where in higher brackets....parents are the worst,one guy with slick back hair and a jump suit wants to fight everyone a real winner. Just watch for him....he is worth the trip...

Brick/Bully tactics? Are you high? Do you even watch these games?? Brick is one of the smaller teams.

Yeah, calling Brick a "bully" team is funny. They move the ball better than most teams. Just don't finish. You want to see bully tactics, watch Mt. Olive.

once again all these comments are with no rhyme or reason. talking about Pda as the only future for a u13 girls is just stupid. everybody should look at a true development program and not a money making machine. Brick is a good team as well as the americans , their limit is that there is only one team . the club are not good to support the level of these two good teams.igfa is not a two players team but of course you do not know soccer.
you talking about overwork without knowing what kind of work.
to play division 1 you need three things :
1. good grades in school
2. a phone call to the right people to be seen done by the right person
3. be a good soccer player

if she comes from PDA or somewhere else makes little difference . the only thing different at PDA or Match Fit is the political power in this state. that is all

a good player is a good player

about the slick black hair guy next time gfa play i will look. or i can just watch any of the above teams to find an idiot on the side line. you all have one or maybe you are one of them

Anonymous said...

a team of two? The limited point reflects your narrow capabilities...

Maybe that's your limit in counting - math. I do offer private math lessons but I think it would be a waste in your case.

Also, looks like you believe you have to go to Harvard to be successful in life. Do the research and see how many CEOs have MBA from this school. But again, you may not be limited and need to READ.

Seriously, do you really believe the team would be accepted to the Manhattan & Jefferson & 1st division,++++ ... if you were right?



Anonymous said...

I repeat....PDA does not..does not develop players..they simply showcase the hard work of previous training...political pull is right... other than that its quantity over quality...large selection of girls..most above average..but not far better than the rest...and in most cases of the same caliber as the other top ten teams..pssssss...hey....heyyy..watch out for the slick harlir jump suit guy...I heard he wears baby blue underneath his bloomers ramping in Fury..hurling bricks with american pride as he blazes the other team with cheap buffooneries.. and is sometimes found rushing the field in a big storm looking to crush opposition while playing indoor soccer on the side with his futsol get along gang...blah..blah...the best so far is the slick hair greezy buy from GFA...sounds like someone on our governor's campaign ticket...I repeat PDA will not advance.

Bully tactics is actually the weaker side of playing the game. You do it when you don't know ho to play the game.Yardley team full of bullies and where does it get them;losing to west mont, fc revolution, hulmeville, fc bucks, penn fusion, 1776 and our pa rush 00.

So what tournaments have Brick won recently? How have they done the last couple of years at the major tournaments?

Sure they have beaten a lot of teams in the past, and can still pull one out every now and again, but that hardly makes them the favorite to win at Manhattan this year. If they do, good for them. But it will be a major upset.

Brick will try to beat you with skill at first, and then resort to thug tactics if they cannot outplay you.

I hope the snow doesn't melt. I'm too scared to play Brick!

Anonymous said...

I never said brick girls were big, but they are unnecessarily overly physical when the game isn't going their way. The difference is that since the rest of the teams girls are now strong enough to make them bounce off, their tactics do not work as well. I have seen too many trips from behind and body checks on the sidelines to say they play tactical soccer.
IGA parent, look at the history and talk to physical therapists about knee, hip and other repeat stress injuries common to girls soccer during these major growth spurt years. The center of balance and simple movements are affected. Your posted schedule and training requirements sound very overdone for this age. I hope I am wrong and wish all the girls and your team good luck, but I think you will be injury plagued.
I predict both your teams will also lose girls to NPL or ECNL just because of the phantom lure.

Brick is a point system overrated team. Cake opponents last spring in EDP and a bunch of summer tournament points. Take those points away and they are well back in the pack. Bet they already signed up to try to get this summers points - they will need them.
They do have a pretty easy EDP season again.

Anonymous said...

Knowing this team very well from U8the Brick team is still one of the best town teams playing at a very HIGH level year round. They never shy away from competition and their coaches (which are fathers) know the game very well and always have this team prepared and ready to play whoever. They are the only team in NJ and possible the Region that has a better win/loss record against PDA Splash. That is pretty impressive!! We always look forward to playig Brick as we know it will be a challenge and tough game as they bring it all the time. Cudos to the Brick team and playing at such a HIGH level for all these years! Well done....

My question is why even play the games? You people know all the talent and how good each team is. I say we just all save a lot of time travel money and so forth and in 4 years just tell all college coaches who to take.

And post 4:20 appears to be HIGH on Brick...or just HIGH on 420. This is entertaining but at the end of the day many of you are clearly jaded and aren't dealing in reality. I hope at some point you just let your daughters play soccer. I don't know who I feel more sorry for, the parents initiating the college conversation at u13 or those at PDA who think full rides are a lock. Or maybe I feel worse for all the parents on ECNL 2nd and 3rd teams who actually believe their daughter will be called up...so they run around playing npl schedules or whatever,and spend even more money on supplemental training to try and make "their daughters dream" happen. The only thing I'm sure of is the ECNL clubs are smiling as you blindly spend your money and they gladly accept it and ask for more.

4:47 and 5:29

Two seemingly unrelated posts, both have misconceptions about player development.

5:29-Development is a journey. The player that left your team had some skills or at least potential when they came to your team, and will continue to develop with their next team(s). If you want to give 100% credit to your coach (maybe you?) for their success, then I hope you also hold them accountable for the players' lack of development at the bottom of their roster.

4:47-Talk about jaded, look in the mirror. So you believe that players are either good or bad from birth? Players cannot start on a second team and improve and work their way up to the first team? Again, player development is a journey. There are many 8 year old superstars that fade by 13, and there are just as many slow starters that end up on the first team in their teens. Who are you to judge kids that you don't even know? Last, don't assume that what you consider a lot of money is a lot to someone else. Why do you think there are so many academies popping up? Supply and demand, my friend.

Brick and Wildcats good move on merging.... I just don't see much talent on the wildcats..

Anonymous said...

Why in the world would Brick ever merge withbthevWikdcats? They are in the 7th flight of Manhattan. Makes sense for Wildcats but not Brick. I could see Brick merging with NJ Force or going to the newly formed PDA Shore.

Anonymous said...

Who cares what Brick does or who they merge with. The decision is on the Brick coaches/parents. The better play that I see is the Wildcats as they are an approved EDL Club which would give the Brick team this status and also use both teams/players as a feeder program. The Wildcats team is of quality and getting better, and do have players that could play on the Brick team as well. How do you think they won the Rider Cup last summer? They had the Wildcats GK (one of the top 5-8 GK's in the U13G age group) and also one of their main defenders guest playing. I don't see NJ Force as they are not ECNL/EDL status, and the PDA South is still an unknown or how this is going to formulate come next year! Does this mean TR becomes PDA South now? At the end of the day, PDA Splash is still the main and top team in the age group and just another way of PDA getting more $$$ from these town clubs to join....Just my view and feedback

Anonymous said...

Thanks keepers Mom from Wildcats as who would really know or care who guest played for Brick & clearly that was the deciding factor & Brick winning? I don't understand these teams that have yet to accomplish anything coming on here bragging about how good they are. If you're good other people will talk about your& if you have to talk about yourselves then you're not really good. Whether a team is getting better or not will be shown in time so let it happen don't brag about it because when it doesn't happen you look like a fool. Only people talking NJ Wildcats are the NJ Wildcats period. Good luck in the 7th flight @ Manhattan.

For the record, they won the Rider cup the previous year in PKs with their own goalie. Offense is the Brick weakness, not defense or goalie. To even put wildcats in the same breath as Brick is nonsense.

To think anyone as an easy EDP season is pure nonsense. I guess you just enjoy hearing yourself talk and like starting trouble. Congrats!

Brick is not the team it was. It used to more than compete. It did beat Splash but not anymore. They are still one of the best town teams, no question, but they aren't what they used to be. Remember when they posted all their results on their website? Not so much anymore. Only ones who beat brick back then was the ref, the weather or themselves. And you know the kids weren't posting the results.

Anonymous said...

@8:04am. Sorry I hit a nerve. Yes most players do have a natural athletic ability. Let's take speed as an example. If your daughter runs a 5.2 40, there is no amount of development in the world that will make her run a 4.4. I know the truth hurts, but if your daughter is a 2nd team ecnl player today it is highly unlikely she will be a first teamer. Why? Because those same ecnl clubs that are touting your daughters development are also out trying to upgrade their roster with better players than what they have. Sure one or two may get called up, but what they really want is the better players they have identified on other teams. It's a fact. And for all the academy's sprouting up,,, there is a sucker born every minute. As long as parents like you think development is the only thing holding your daughter back, they will keep sprouting up as long as you're paying. I'm not jaded, just not drinking the kool aid. Tell your ecnl coaches to stop calling,and focus on your daughters development, my daughter isn't coming. Yet. But if or when she does, it won't be on the 2nd team.....

Anonymous said...

I agree. It's U13 and you should know where your daughter is in the pecking order by now and if you don't I can assure you that your coach does. I also agree that the guy who thinks 2 players make a team is a joke. You really need to get a clue.. At this level what separates most of these teams us there depth. Splash had been good for many years because not only was there starting 11 good but so was there bench. I think a lot other teams out there (GFA) have exactly that, depth. There problem is only the fact that they haven't been together long. Yes they have 2 or 3 players that might be better than others but by no means are they the only good players on the team. You should listen to yourself speak before you do because that is just ridiculous...
