8:32 here i based my list on this criteria again my opinion.1. USSF the top of the pyramid so their league will be the top of the pyramid for top players that want to play NT and the top schools will recruit these players - so other players will want to be there as well to play with the best, wy wouldn't they? College recruiting won't be an issue if your kid plays GDA.2. I placed the top US Club and USYS leagues in this spot.3. I placed regional leagues that advance to a national championship - NPL is US Club's 2nd tier as RL for USYS 4. Super Y is club neutral that advances to nationals so for some kids this is an avenue.5. Regional leagues that stop with a league title no advancement6. I didn't list a #6 but this would be all other leagues not recreational.12:24 GDA is USSF and will attract the best players that want to play NT and the best players that want to play with the best. College recruiting will not be an issue for these players1:12 "college bound player GDA/ECNL" plenty of clubs not GDA/ECNL have college bound players (top 50 soccer schools) but that is your opinion.4:45 Kids playing HS will join club after HS they will just miss GDA showcase events to play for school if that floats their boat and will join team after HS season.6:25 NPL is tier 2 by US Club standards with ECNL being tier 1. 6:50 I would have ECNL and USYS NL after NCS since NCS is open to every team that is registered with them if they qualify - not a group of guys in a room saying they are good enough. ECNL teams can participate if they also play in a USYS league - NCS is open to all USYS team -ECNL is NOT OPEN to all US Club teams they are open to their clubs only.6:53 agree 100%I don't think GDA cares about the younger age PDP schedules, do you? GDA cares about their U17, U19, U21 and NT teams - I don't seen many at a PDP event with a shot.Again just my opinion. I like when every one has a chance what you make of it is on them can be good or can be a shock to their system (really bad)
Was just at a PDP event (U15-U18). It had current NT players and a few that will be asked out for sure.
Was there too; unless the politics of soccer kicks in. ;) Kept hearing the Rutger's coach cover for screw ups her teams were making. It was laughable.
NYCFC DA tryouts postponed due to low turn out - not the snow. Really not the snow - we all know the best WC players are in so where are the others coming from? Long Island has two clubs - willing to bet Albertson and east meadow players go there so if they are not affiliated what does that mean for those two ECNL teams? FC Fury NY Bay Shore, N.Y.Long Island SC Plainview, NYNew York City FC Orangeburg, N.Y.GDA will be the place to be
https://www.ussoccer.com/stories/2017/03/20/20/38/20170320-news-u19wnt-klimkova-calls-up-26-players-for-training-camp-in-floridaThese are 1998 and 1999 girls the article says. Good to see a few gals from Region 1 in this. Isn't the PA Classics girl listed on Penn Fusion? Hasn't she been there for several years?
Doubtful right away at least. I find it may be hard to go from a non-ECNL environment immediately to a GDA. I think it will take a little bit of time. And, when it does, it's always good for the players to have choices. It would be great for the sport for both to do well.
There was also 2001 and 2000 penn fusion kids at PDP who played for PAC. Says good things about PAC developmental programs. The 99 has always been a super top player with national aspirations. Players like her will go where they see the best development and national exposure opportunities. The PAC has the geographic edge for Harrisburg but the DA product will have to be seen as superior to penn fusion for PAC to be the automatic choice for the very best players. Right now it's unproven. The 01/02 team at PAC could be really good especially if some of the former penn legacy kids return next year from penn fusion. The 00/99 team will need a big infusion to be competitive with the ECNL converted teams. I don't see that happening in the short term unless PAC allows school ball and some return in the spring for their last semester. However their program shouldn't be judged on that oldest team. The younger teams might be really good. For the western Lancaster kids closer to Mannheim driving an hour to Downingtown and west Chester might come back sooner and bolster the younger teams immediately. The older west Lancaster kids won't make a difference to the 00/99 team except maybe the 00 PDP kid. Plus that one is a twin and the other kid is actually the stronger player. If they both come back would help. The 01 PDP kid would help out for sure. Also of course if they switch back it will weaken penn fusion and even the playing field between them significantly. For the east Lancaster kids it isn't that far to ustc and not quite a drop kick to Mannheim. At Harrisburg no tolls and half hour shorter commute is compelling. If they put together a decent program at PAC seen as equal to penn fusion in development and opportunity it's a no brainer. Then of course there is always the pulisic aura to bump PAC.
3:40Other than the fact you don't sleep, are yoiu a PAC parent? You seem to know alot....
3:40 in Zombieland. If the PAC 01's or 02's are going to be even remotely competitive, they will need everyone of those former Penn Legacy players currently playing for Penn Fusion. As of right now the current 01 and 02 teams give new meaning to PAC (Players athletically challenged). The real athletes are those flying around on PF soccer fields.
PAC 02's are very good and are always in top tournament bracket. 01's seem to struggle. If they get even a handful of top players the 01/02 DA team will do great. Especially if they get a quality coach which rumor has it they do have one but have yet to release his name.
Oh my, in all of that tolls discussion, etc., I nearly fell asleep. We get it. You're a PAC poster in mourning. Anyway, safe travels to those heading to Richmond, VA.
I think it' s time for all parents on this board with girls that play soccer to invest as well. Watch the game or at least put the channel on a TV in the house, get that viewership number up. The more money the league makes the more opportunities our kids will have here in the states to make a little money and play this game. A+E Networks invests in NWSL with equity stake and together launch NWSL Media, a new media and commercial joint venture; Lifetime to be official sponsor and broadcast partner of the league in a three-year dealThe NWSL Game of the Week on Lifetime will provide fans throughout the country with a live viewing platform every Saturday at 4 p.m. ET to watch the best players in the world. A pre-game show will kick off each weekly event at 3:30 p.m. ET. Showcasing the network’s sponsorship and commitment to the league, Lifetime will be featured on all official jerseys with a patch on the right sleeve.
Exactly. Well put. Get the interest up.Also, hopefully they have a vast amount of sponsors. Need to buy/support those products as well. Getting sponsors/ads are key. The ads pay the bills.
Good luck to all heading to JC this weekend!Weather looks great!
Re: latest PDP roster...One of the ex-PAC players is and has been way over-rated. Shows the power of parents pushing and using every political tool there is to advance their daughter.Kudos to her!! She's already committed and will probably play school ball fyi...
Seriously 954 trollThe 99 is a super stud YNT player committed to UNC. So can't be talking about her. The 00 isn't committed- so not her. The 01 must be your target. Your jealousy is so transparent in this. She is committed to a great big10 school and invited to PDP. Believe me Penn Fusion and Tino don't let parents influence anything there. Since she was put forward for PDP, they must consider her a top player in the club. Looks like 1 99, 2 00, 3 01s in the whole club plus a 00 GK. It's an honor congrats. PAC does something right in development at the younger ages since these kids are so successful at the older ages.
I wonder who just posted that...thanks dad! :)Agreed, PAC is under-rated. Better bring the PDA discussion back!
934 Do you think all committed kids will play school ball? I think the higher the level the kid will be playing in college the more likely she will choose GDA. Better prep.
I've seen both HS and GDA choices and they're directly related to graduating year...high percentage of 99s(juniors) will be playing HS as this is their 4th year as Varsity. On the other hand, most 01s are choosing GDA next year.
10:27 I disagree with your troll comment. It was his/her opinion, the kids are under a microscope, this is part of the game when you are a high level athlete. Some like you and some don't.Parents need to stop the PC BS and suck it up or stay away for message boards and social media if they have a soft stomach when it comes to negative comments.PDA discussion will start up once they win a game, I know no wins in 6 games means nothing but when you are the cream of the crop in NJ I would expect above.500 regardless of who plays and in what ever format games are played to be won and the players on the field did not win. On the bright side they are the #2 team in NJ according to YSR rankings with a 38.02. Looking back at PA - PAC is a 36.13 a 2 goal underdog vs PennFusion who has a score of 38.51. Sorry for the results based comments.Smart of the 01 to choose GDA in my opinion.
11:42 - my daughter and her friends/soccer buds those at school and those at club are juniors (99 & 00). The ECNL kids are doing GDA. The non-Ecnl are not. They are doing high school. That is the poll in our area of the northeast anyway. For what it's worth...
And most, but not all, are verbally committed already (ECNL kids).
@10:27 - wow. 7 kids at PDP from Penn Fusion. That is great. Did all of them start off at PAC? That is what I got from the post.
No they all did not come from PAC. But I think those that did left yrs ago.
208 clearly if you got that from a post that discusses three kids you just aren't too bright ...
We all know PF recruits players rather then develop them . Tino hit the jackpot with those PAC players !
Most of them went from PAC to Penn fusion I think the twins were at strikers for a year or so. But I think most of them have been at oenn fusion a few years. They seem to be getting better. Some have even been to national camp and all pdp
Having said that what do you think the chances are they would have left PAC at all if the GDA was in place 4 or 5 years ago? Doubtful and there is the future of the landscape.
All this talk about PF, PAC and who developed their own talent versus what club is importing it in. Let's face it, many players start out at U9, U10 and even U11 being coached by coaches that coach effort and hopefully teach some skills that will be necessary to advance to the next level. If we are smart about it and watch other teams playing against our girls, we may find the coach that is excellent at both. Think back to how many coaches you have come across so far and honestly think about how many really good ones there are? There are truly not that many and its amazing how many of the good ones come across as socially awkward (or just tired of dealing with parents). To say Penn Fusion imports all of their talent that was trained by other clubs may be true to some extent, but show me a team at U16 that doesn't have girls that came from four to five different teams. I don't know about you guys, but from U9 to U14 I didn't care about the club, I wanted my daughter to have the best coach. The club is important from this point on.

10:04 Someone complained about PDA bringing players prior to tryouts (I'm guessing you).Remove 10 players from Splash who finished 6 out of 18 in F1and replace them with 10 from Hornets 22 out of 24 in F3, not looking very good for the 01 ECNL team next season once GDA comes around and the top PDA players play for Sky Blue GDA.
Interesting theoryBurt dont you think some DA tryout castoffs from outside PDA will be offered ECNL slots?
PDA PDA PDA PDA PDAPDA PDA PDA PDA PDAOk, now I contributed to the endless PDA talk....
PDA Splash have good players just one of the worst coaches in the ECNL. They are losing to NPL teams now. He's clueless.
Splash had its day u12 to u15 they were soild...Now with the age change,they lost to many girls,and that last coach burned to many girls,they left pda for other clubs,so they had no one to replace them
Maybe it's not the coach.
Where is that PAC parent that was touting the 02's and how strong their new DA would be? PAC teams got crushed at Jeff and at this point better hope for a lot of players from outside their club show up for DA tryouts.
19:27 I agree. But the truth hurts sometimes. That team is loaded with college commits If they sit these players more to give time to other players to show their stuff, then it's not the coach - the team just isn't that deep after stars are removed.
Where is the Spirit sucks guy and the PAC guy - you can't let PDA get all this talk time come on guys.

PAC will probably get some HMMS and LDC kids from Harrisburg Area and the Penn legacy kids will come back. That will build the PAC team and take away from the PF. Expect near parity.
5:58PAC 02s didn't do well. But you say PAC "teams", plural, didn't do well. Other teams there did fairly well. PAC DA, as others, will take a couple years to get solid. Word is big name coach is joining as girls DOC and 17/16 team coach.Here's a question to you PF parents...between 02 and 01 rosters there are 36 players according to team pages. Where will the girls that don't make their DA go? Will they be satisfied with a "pre-academy" team or leave for other DA program?
I have to be honest with you. looking at the top 10 in each flight above, NJ is hurting at U16
10:27 - Way to stick up for yourself JB. You're a loser. PDA is loaded with talent.
In fairness 5:58 PAC 02's were in the top bracket and in a group with 3 ECNL teams. If you look back at Fall results they have already played and beat Rush and Clevland who PF played and had 3 1 goal games with Pipeline. Had they been with Rush, Cleveland, and Pipeline results wouldn't have been the way the were. If they combine the best of their 01/02 and pick up a few solid players from outside the DA team will be good. Add onto that this top to be named coach no less.
Huh?? Sounds like six degrees of Kevin Bacon or was he on the team, too.
Hey 3/23 at 5:55, it's me the one you called "not too bright" as a post on which I commented on didn't discuss PF PDP players other than three. Here's the quote from the post - "Since she was put forward for PDP, they must consider her a top player in the club. Looks like 1 99, 2 00, 3 01s in the whole club plus a 00 GK. It's an honor congrats."Hmmm. That comment notes more than 3, Fredo.I was just wondering if they all came from PAC, but found out they didn't.
Season is just starting. Let it play out. Good teams are not always at their best every tournament/showcase. Just as one example, look at FCV 01's results from Phoenix in the Fall where they were defeated 5-1 and 4-0.
11:24, what has that talent ever won? Can't blame coach,
142I think the comments were regarding the future of PAC GDA. If the central PA kids stop going to PF in seeking to play at the highest level, and instead look to PAC, the club's girl's side will rise up at PF expense. The mere fact that these girls travel to West Chester to play is a statement that PF is currently seen as the best girl's program for kids from Central PA. Will that change with the GDA? I think it will. Kids won't drive to PF when they can cut their commute dramatically by joining PAC from Penn legacy, LDC, HMMS etc. development programs. Unless PAC screw it up by providing a second tier to their boys programs opportunity, they should rise to the top fairly quickly.Given that the three former PAC kids play in 3 different age groups and are acknowledged by PF, by their inclusion in PDP, to be among the best players in their age group, that rise could be very quick indeed. PAC become immediately successful if these kids transfer their affiliation to PAC next year. Anyone there saw former PAC kids slice and dice national team defenders all day long in Pottstown. If they came back to Lancaster, there would be immediate elevation of level of these teams and resulting lowering of Penn Fusion thus resulting in an immediate shift in power. If I were MH I would be actively trying to get these kids back now for sure. If they don't get them back, (I think there are 5 02s from Lanc/Har in addition to the 3 PDP kids and others just under the PDP bar) the older age groups will perform relatively poorly when up against PF next year. If they do take a wait and see approach, it may take some couple year's time for PAC to grow into the powerhouse they have the potential to become.
Word is 90% of top older girls at PAC are sticking with HS soccer next yearThey better hope for influx to 99/00 DA team...
8:49 lot's of ifs? PAC needs to forget the current cycle and work on the younger ages. Concentrate on them and they will become what you want.
Ah yeah the point of the post was PAC will succeed in the future provided they put out a quality product to compete with PF. If they want to be competitive immediately it will take kids returning to central PA from WC
PAC can hope to ride the Pulisic train and attract players from the outside....
It's a pretty impressive train. Anyone think that the USSF will be more than happy to invite PAC GDA kids to YNT camps?
In time, maybe. Some clubs have produced more than one kid/guy/gal that has played on the sr. US NT and/or sending players internationally.He's a special player. He would have been successful where ever he went.
8:49 - I am not sure about the shift in power comment. PF has been doing this for a long time and quite successfully. And, as they are going to be the only GDA in the Philly/PA area closest to PDA, they should get some kids from other teams coming over as well like they do already. It's nice the girls will have other options.
4:43 - I agree. He has become a lot better since playing overseas. PAC can't take credit for that. That is him, the player and the GE academy system.
Let's give Bruce Arena some credit too. I think he is doing a much better job. Go USA!!
Saw Jaelin Howell got a call up to sr. NT for game vs. Russia. Horan hurt.
12:OO Your really going to bring up a win over Cleveland? Let's not forget that PF kicked ass last weekend and those PF parents only love one thing more than themselves, and that's winning. Anyone counting on PAC receiving help from those PF players will be waiting a long time. 9:36 Good point about NJ's U16's. Really though a couple of teams would do well last weekend. Thought "Mercer" was in an easy bracket and should have done well, as a few other of the higher ranked teams should have. But it is early and fortunes may change.
Ahhhh come on. Now Tobin Heath hurt. Over training isn't going to fix the problem.

11:11 Trust me when I say no one is waiting nor wants them and their toxic parents.
I doubt the majority of parents on here are hoping that any top players switch clubs and attend their child's club DA tryouts. At this age it isn't about the score. Sure it's always a bonus to win and watch your kids team be successful but it's really about the player and being seen at this point. The players of one DA club will be seen as much as the next regardless of which team wins a game. Parents should want their kid to be on the field playing while scouts are looking on, not watching from the bench. It's not U14 anymore. The starting 11 on ANY DA team will have offers coming their way.
4:05 I totally agree with you. Funny thing is that some of the 02 parents actually believe Tina when he says he's going to do an even split with the age groups for the DA, even though he has already let them know his four player from the Westmont School are already on the DA team. But don't worry girls, he also said that he'll promote four players while their playing HS ball at Westmont in the fall, so there's hope for some playing time. It must be the truth because we all know that Tino would never fib about anything soccer related!
4:05 - laughable.
5:48 - you sound sour.
5:48 Im aware of more than just those 4 who already know they not only made the DA team but are top 10. That's the club for you.
Any DOC or coach who says there will be an even split of 01's and 02's next year is FOS. If an 02 is not a top 3 player on their current team plan to see your kid warm the bench next year.
8:50 Not sour at all as my daughter is in a great situation right now and we feel extremely fortunate. I do feel for any parents that are experiencing this level for the first time with their oldest or maybe only child. Its easy to believe someone who is telling you exactly what you want to hear about your daughter. There are very few coaches that are truly vested in the teams they coach and right from the beginning tell you what your daughter weaknesses are, versus what she does well. As for club directors, lets remember that they are running a business and need to keep them checks coming. And besides, is it really telling a lie when there's a couple shred's of truth in a statement?11:46You are right on the money. But that's exactly what Tino told everyone at the town hall meeting and he would never mislead parents that way.
Checks dont come if you do a lousy job. And pissing off parents doesnt help.
Why would you be pissed off? Other places to go if not happy. Someone would gladly take your spot.
Just saw this posted on blog. Is this why 2001 Cedar Stars Team had a different coach on Saturday and Sunday?"Major report of inappropriate behavior(drinking alcohol in room with players) with Cedar Stars Coach being sent home in middle of Jefferson Cup and another Cedar Stars Coach sent to coach team for rest of weekend. The first report we heard was there would bee a suspension of the coach but then our coach was on the practice field this week so waiting to see if it will be swept under the rug by Cedar Stars Club".
Timing couldn't be worse for the club.
How is that coach allowed to be with kids? Why didn't the parents pull their kids from the field when he showed up?
Can someone confirm that Cedar Stars 2001 coach didn't finish Jefferson Cup with team last weekend?
You cant - nor can 2:19 - thus you really shouldnt be talking about it
Its true or they would have issued immediate denials. Everyone noticed the coaching change down there last weekend in mid tournament.
Family emergencies come up and coaches do get sick, too. Just offering other possible reasons for coaching change.

11:34 Thanks for the updates on the scores. Might be a stupid question, are there EDP scores mixed in there?
12:28 I was going to - but then i would have to include other leagues that don't advance to a national title. I kept it simple - ECNL, NPL & ERL.
This is great. Thanks.
Hey 10:15 why couldn't those other explanations be plausible? Were you there? Some of the info on this blog is hogwash.
Evidently there is a picture on social media of the incident. It was deleted but once the pictures are online they are always available. Also news of the incident is making the rounds among our parents on various teams at the club. The parent who made the original complaint is very upset that his daughter was put in this position. This will not go away. In the past a 5 year suspension followed when this happened with a coach and his teenage players at an away tournament.
Yikes. Good luck.
At PDA that coach would already be gone.Clubs have to protect the girls.
I would hope at most that coach would get a red card and walking papers.
At most clubs, yep, I agree.
And you'll hate this.....it doesn't say much for the players that sat around and drank with him does it? At a tournament and this is what you do for entertainment?
6:54 - Yeah, blame the players.... And this ass clown has not been fired? How is this even possible?
That post didn't blame the players....read again. Merely brought up the question regarding the players. As a parent I'd be pushing for coach to be fired. But I would also have a lengthy discussion with my daughter if she were involved. These aren't toddlers....
I have no problem blaming the players and their families.Watch who your kid is hanging with,

Wildcats 6 to 0 over Cedar Stars is that true? Shocking result.
Probably because coach and girls were out drinking again
Correction: 0 FSA FC 01 NPL6 Match Fit Academy 01 NPL
Hasn't this happened before with this coach?
8:17 - fired? My kid, he would be hospitalized.
Just the latest chapter in a long long list.
I don't know the coach or the team, but is the story that he was drinking in a room that te kids were also in, or he and the kids were drinking together in a room? Because the first wouldn't bother me so long as several kids were in the room or the door was open; if it's the second, then firing or at least a very long suspension seems appropriate.
Story is in room drinking, but girls were not drinking. I guess it depends. If coach is in my room drinking and watching basketball, and I am sitting next to him. And then on another chair/couch my daughter is sitting there with two players it is no issue obviously (and not drinking). But rumors spread no matter what you do. And btw my daughter would never drink and I am positive none of her team mates would
Add that he was sitting there in his whitey tighties drinking pbr and you have a great reality show
If the parent was in the room drinking with the coach while watching a basketball game when his daughter walked in then why would he have complained?That scenario is just not believable.
I will suggest the first mistake here is fraternization with the parents of the kids being coached. Who doesn't like to have a beer and watch a game, but unfortunately if your a paid coach, you just can't do it with a small group of parents or any at all. All your gaining is a chance to fracture team chemistry and allowing some parents to feel they have the "ear" of the coach. And even if it isn't true, other parents will still think it and then the rumor mill starts (playing time, positions and such). All of us as soccer parents enjoy sitting with the coach and hearing some of the coaches thoughts on the game and possibly a nugget of how well our daughter did or what she does well. Unfortunately that info needs to come through and email or a scheduled one on one talk with your daughter present. Parents can never feel that they have some kind of ownership of the coach and coach should never feel he owes a parent more than the time he spends coaching. Coaches drinking with the team parents goes on all the time is enjoyed by both parties many times. However it only takes one bad occasion to ensure there is never another time.
If we, other parents and myself, are having a drink or hanging with the coaches, I make it a point to never discuss the game or soccer. They and I do have other interests. Don't you get tired talking about work after you left the office? They are no different. That said, I don't think a coach should ever go to any room of a parent and/or kid; unless there is a medical emergency and they are needed. The coach doesn't need any headache that may result. Sit in the lobby and watch a game; go to a restaurant; any thing then going to a kid's room with them there. Just bad decision making on coach and the parent that invited. Smarten up!
5:25Very well said. It's called boundaries. We need to have them and teach our daughters those as well. One of my daughters' coaches gave permission to be called by first name. I absolutely disagreed. We need to teach the respect and professionalism.
Wonder what 1776 mom would say... I miss her
5:55 Whole heartily agree with the first name issue. Our coach also said the girls could call him by first name and I made a point that she puts "coach" in front of it. She's not talking to another HS student or even someone in college, its a grown man 35 plus. Maybe I'm just to old school, but I believe that by respecting others you learn to respect yourself.
Can we get back to talking soccer. I'm sure there is another blog on how to parent...
Learning respect is part of the soccer world too as well as parenting. You might try it. So, out of mutual respect, I appreciate the post.
3:03 How can you say that, you know the girls will be playing soccer forever and respect will be over in a few years? Oops, its the other way around isn't it? Instead of whining 1:42, start a thread and lets run with it. 12:28 You may not believe it, but as rough as she it during the game, she is a funny person to talk with away from it. Teams like 1776 are struggling this year because they decided to combine their 01's and 02's rather than break up. Have any NJ teams decided to do something similar?
1;42 I think you might be exhibit AI assume you may be trying to be funny but if not it appears parents like you are the reason for half of these blogs...
Does NJ State Cup start up this weekend? PA will start up on Saturday with 1776 once again the favorite.
Made my day!! We get to see 1776 mom in action!!!

11:24 - what gives? What exactly does this woman do? To be called out specifically, must be good.
Are PSA and Stallions merging?
12:52 Thanks for posting the upcoming games for both NJ and PA!!3:12 Big Red has no limits when it come to tearing into Refs, coaches (including her own) or the other players during and after games. Has gone onto opposing players snapchat site and told them they cheated after a game and multiple times has had her own coach tell her to shut up he's getting a red card. One of the most competitive parents you would ever meet and will go nose to nose with man or women. To be fair, her kids are very good players and very respectful when talking to others after the games. Not sure what sport she played when she was young, but whatever it was I'm sure she was intense and probably very good at it.
Planning a road trip next week. Pulling kids out of school to go and watch their game. Haven't seen her since our teams shared a hotel last year..oh what a joy that was!

Wildcats vs Crush State Cup final rematch on tap - sort of
Rage 2PL Black 3What happened in this game????? I thought every last PL black player left that team? Several actually now play on Rage! So WTH?
So Cal Blues anialate Penn Fusion 9-0. Ouch.
11:08 what are yoiu asking?PL won the game....were you there?
I believe they are asking how a former top team which every player left last year (PL) manages to beat a team that some of the players left PL to go to (Rage). I would also like to know what happened? Any Rage or "new" PL parents on here?
9-0? Talk about an epic meltdown of a team. Where was the coach?
Good PL players didn't go to RagePF players were on the field not the coach
We are talking about a 9-0 game. At what point does the coach make changes to keep it from getting too ugly? When you see a game that bad the coach does get some of the blame.
This coach is also the coach of the DA team next year too isn't he
8:13 True but 9-0 says more than team management. I'd say just way out of their league this time. Happens to all teams.
Wayyyyyy out of their league!
Must have been a long flight home for those obnoxious PF parents !9-0 hahahahahah

Looks like PF was the only team to get anialated by So Cal Blues in Phoenix .I bet Tino is crying in his bowl of Wheaties .
I think it was a misprint
YSR ranks are a sham.
9-0 blowout maybe those PF girls should skip playing DA . They obviously aren't the 1% and can't play at that level .
It was not a misprint. 9-0 was the final score.
7:16 a little harshPretty sure they will be playing in their DA league, not out westThey will dominate in the northeast
6:57 is that because they are good or they playPA ClassicsCedar StarsVirginia DASpirit MDSpirit VAYou can say most teams would dominate vs these teams.PDA and FC Virginia top 2 teams in Mid-Atlantic followed by Penn Fusion
Penn Fusion will dominate? Dominate is not an accurate word. Do well maybe. Not as well as PDA or Virginia by any means so to say dominate is a bit wishful. They're last showing is telling that they have much to work on.
Missing kids and a showcase. Even in ECNL when you travel that far, everyone plays. They will be just fine.Sky isn't falling Henny Penny.
Hahaha it worked!!!I brought out the PDA "we're the best" and PF "missing kids and travel" comments!!!
A 9-0 loss needs way more excuses than that lol. Keep em coming!

Here are the ECNL standings, the ones that matter to ECNL teams. And in THOSE games, only one hiccup. Not dismissing the score clearly, they have some work to do, but: FC Bucks ECNL U16 Won 2- 0 SLSG - MO ECNL U16 Won 6- 2 Maryland United FC ECNL U16 Draw 1- 1 Ohio Premier ECNL U16 Won 1- 0 Boston Breakers Academy ECNL U16 Draw 3- 3 WNY Flash Academy - ECNL U16 Won 2- 0 Washington Premier ECNL U16 Won 1- 0 Orlando City ECNL U16 Won 1- 0 So Cal Blues SC ECNL U16 Lost 0- 9 Currently, their Conference record is 2 wins 1 draw (only 3 conference games thus far). They are in 2nd place. Top 5 go to Champs League Play offs. Next two are wild cards where getting in is based on nat'l events/out of conference play. Like other sports, weight of overall/out of conference is not as much as in conference. ECNL tries to capture within a conference all the teams that play high school the same time. Some of the teams you mentioned are in ECNL season when many NE conference teams are in high school season. For instance, while NE teams are mostly in ECNL season, the SE teams are now playing high school. That is why it's hard to get a real read on all the games for all the teams because some are in season, deep into league season and some aren't. That may be another reason why GDA is taking high school out of the mix. Let's circle back to all of this in June.
I agree. As a former coach, looking at records to draw a conclusion about a team just doesn't really work as far as game time. You don't know who played, who wasn't available that day, how much certain kids did play, in what position, etc. Some have deep rosters and have to rotate. Some kids play, some sit out and some kids move up and down rosters. Post season is usually when this all flushes out.
I'm a euro and my team has a huge rosterThey play league gamesThey play Cup gamesThey play Champions league gamesGuess what the stars don't play every game but they still win.If the kids weren't any good they wouldn't be on the roster.Who cares who plays and who doesn't and how much they do the TEAM played.and in soccer it's all about the TEAM not the individual player. The team has 18 role players that play to WIN nothing more nothing less. Soccer is very simple it's just hard to play simple
Tell that to 8:51.
10:51 - so you are a paid euro professional? Congrats. A little weird being on a youth soccer blog, but.... Anyway, as all of your teammates are paid and under contract, I would hope that all are top players. Otherwise, your GM could be in trouble. But, that's not how it is in youth sports on most youth teams. Kids are still in the learning process.
PF parents need to stop making excuses for their teams beat down . 9-0 loss is inexcusable . The reality is their girls just couldn't measure up to the top talent that is out there.
Was on wrong age group re blog. Saw the below. Could affect our kids if soccer adopts soon as well. Thoughts anyone? Is this going to happen in soccer and when? "A Possible First Step in Curbing Early Recruiting? This week, the NCAA Division I Council will vote on proposed legislation that impacts just the sport of Lacrosse, but could be the first step to reforming recruiting in all sports. If approved, the legislation will take effect August 1, 2017 and restrict all recruiting interaction between prospects and Division I lacrosse coaches to not sooner that September 1 of a prospect’s junior year of high school. This proposed legislation affects both phone calls and on-campus visits: Phone Calls: The proposal would not only prohibit Division I lacrosse coaches from placing phone calls to recruits prior to September 1 of the junior year (as is the case currently), but would also prohibit them from accepting calls from recruits or the recruit’s relatives or legal guardians prior to September of junior year. On-Campus Visits: In addition, while lacrosse recruits and their families would still be able to visit a college campus at their own expense at any time they choose, Division I coaches and athletic department staff would be prohibited from having any interaction with recruits or families making an unofficial visit if the visit occurs prior to September 1 of the recruit’s junior year of high school. The provision of complimentary admissions to a campus athletic event during an unofficial visit will also be prohibited prior to September 1 of a recruit’s junior year. Again, if this legislation is approved, it won’t take effect until August and only impacts the sport of lacrosse at the Division I level, but it will be interesting to see if it leads to changes for other sports in the future. "
So the lax coach will just call the club coach, who will then pass on the info to the player, making more work for the club coach! This really isn't any different. Correct me if I am wrong but this doesn't change early recruiting.
So no more id clinics before junior year?Division I coaches and athletic department staff would be prohibited from having any interaction with recruits or families making an unofficial visit if the visit occurs prior to September 1 of the recruit’s junior year of high school.
Curious...any one apply for DA tryout at penn fusion and actually receive an invitation?Sent 10 days ago and no word.
Don't bother. DA spots already known including starting 11. Save your money.
A little different. What happens now is college coach asks club coach to have X player contact him. That is no longer allowed.
Correct. It just now it means there will be more back-and-forth between the club coach and college coach. They need to add no contact with family and youth coaches.
11:08 - don't listen to these boards. Reach out again. Any club worth it's salt is going to take a look at talent.
lol you don't know TM do you? Spots are sealed already.
Do you??? You probably thought they weren't going GDA, either.
TM always has his player deals all in order before tryouts.
Yes. He does..... The best you can hope for is a bench spot for your kid. Maybe they'll see part of a game or two.
You never know what the future holds and who may or may not come back. Why miss out on a possible opportunity?
Their roster is maxed out(too high) in ECNL now. What is happeneng to the girls who don't make DA at PF?
According to the US Soccer presentations given by some Clubs, all GDA rosters can have 16-23 players per roster as well as Developmental Players (DP).
7:49 - so that sounds like room on rosters; don't you agree? Some of the postings may be to scare off some new suitors and steer them elsewhere.
PF like taking kids from other clubs to replace what they already have each year because they don’t develop players. If for some reason players coming from outside clubs don’t workout they just sit them until they quit. This is also done to deplete opposing clubs roster numbers. 30 players on a roster not knowing if you will be playing on the second team, first team or no team each weekend. It's going to be great for youth soccer! Classics DA won't be any better. Unfortunately, there isn’t a properly run girls club in the Philadelphia area. Hopefully a pro club DA isn’t too far away.
I think it will take a couple years for any of the DA clubs to get established. They will either begin attracting players or dwindle away.So you think PF is turning away existing ECNL rostered girls and replacing them with outside players? That's cruel if you've been an existing player and have no clout.
For Penn Fusion & PDA they go back to last year's team combined 01 and 02 players.No clout 12:33 -I thought it was about the best players from with in or external to the club? My friend that is the problem with youth soccer or maybe youth sports to many people with clout. it shouldn't matter where a kid played last year if they are one of the best 20 they should make the team. According to you they shouldn't because a player has been with the club for years and is not top 20 material should have pull.9:59 top of the pyramid was ECNL so if they took other players they were better options and that is what they need to do as a top of the pyramid club. There should be no hate that's the name of the game. All clubs are run properly, parents want their kids at the top and there is nothing wrong with that, the only bummer is it's the top based on opinions of the people in charge of picking but is also part of the game.5:45 they play for another team in the club or find another club at their level.
Sounds like someone who has hurt feelings, 9:59. 30 kids on a roster? Have you hit your head. TGS rosters are on ECNL website have under 20 for U16 and 20 for U15. Have you checked other rosters for other teams? These are in the smaller range.
12:33 - Are you saying a club shouldn't grab a newbie just because they are new?
1:16 - you are correct in your breakdowns.
The problem with youth soccer is not building players from U8 to U14. PF WCUSC have always been poor in developing girls soccer players, even before there was a PF. Not good.
Sounds like you have an axe to grind. Get some coffee; work it out.
That's correct. They don't develop good players, they recruit good players .
