@ 9:52 pm - do you really think that a coach isn't going to choose a very good, impact level player over someone who just attended clinics? They are money makers; plain and simple. My daughter has only attended 1 and that school still has interest, but she doesn't as school did not fit her needs. Others have come to watch her at games and offers are there (very good schools/programs). The feeling is that I pay enough for ECNL. Come and watch. They do. Do you really want to play for a team that only recruits from clincs it holds? Or a school that is more rounded in its approach? I guess that is up to the player and family to figure out.
I never said subs play or don't play.I said a roster of 24 playing 29 games vs a roster of 22 playing 42 games.I couldn't tell you who plays and who doesn't.I would think player 12-22 play more in 42 games than player 12-24 do in 29 games. What's wrong with my statement? How is that one sided?
3:32 my daughter doesn't need soccer to get into her school, her grades will get her into any school and we are prepared to pay which ever school it may be. Why would she care how they pick their teams if it's the school she wants?
3:32I think the point is ECNL is unnecessary if you have the goodsThe ID camp gets you seen, pure and simpleStart attending pre freshman season if possible, then return. If you dont do 2 straight years I would think they will wonder where your mind is at.Met a family from Houston that had done 5 camps heading into the player's frosh season. All schools they could see her attending, of course
8:08 ... Agreed well said ... You don't have to play ecnl to be seen if your a well rounded football player that has good technical ability and able to read the match good vision you will be ok ... There are many girls who could play ecnl but don't my daughter team is ok it's not a PDA or IGFA ... Ability wise she could play for these teams but she doesn't i always tell her your not taking your club to college it's just you ... Your footballing sense and technical ability will get you there ... To me girls should never choose a school based upon football should be based on a major subject that she likes ... ID camps at colleges is very good way to be seen meeting coach and staff ... They will be able to see your progress from year to year they get to know you ... Also she goes to all the major showcases out there with her current team ... There are to many quality girls out there not getting playing time makes no sense really and the parents let it happen don't have them play at a club because of the status symbol your damaging your child confidence ... Remember a coach can easily spot a good player on a bad team .
IGFA IGFA IGFA WHY SO QUIET
4.22 you are just the same troll here to provoke . Please go away. The other comment, you should be ashamed .
@5:30 Doc of PSA stay off the blog.
Imagine how good gfa could've done if there top girls didn't leave.
GFA's best players left?? LMFAO!! Now that's funny K.C.!! Not even close!!
5:58 where did your kid play today?
PDA dominating the showcase 5:0 today!
Just call me the Myth buster - IGFA 2-0 vs ECNL teams & PDA 2-0 vs ECNL teams.PDA expected as the played weaker ECNL teams compared to IGFA.Hold your head high. 2 Princeton SA - IGFA 00-011 Penn Fusion SA - '00G ECNL (2nd place out of 6 teams ECNL league play) 1 Bethesda Tempo '00 ECNL (1st place out of 6 teams ECNL league play)2 Princeton SA - IGFA 00-01 0 McLean 00 ECNL (6th place out of 6 teams ECNL league play)1 PDA ECNL U150 JFC Storm - Jacksonville FC ECNL U15 (5th place out of 10 teams ECNL league play)5 PDA ECNL U15
Are you seriously bragging about your disgusting style of play? Also, the same song about PDA having easy games. What happened in Jeff cup? PDA was waiting for you and destroyed the opponent in the finals 3:0 the one you lost 4:1 to. You are lucky you did not get to the finals with PDA. It would be embarrassing.
7:30 My style of play, to funny? Did all 24 play this weekend?
Wow, what a class coach. You just probably accidentally proved you have been writing on this blog while telling everyone not to do so. You also indicating that the style is bad because you have to play your bench players? What a respect to your players. You should be ashamed of yourself.
8:38 here sorry 7:30 I have a fast trigger finger posted before I was done.What was the result the last time they played and who won, since you are bringing up the past? i did my research on this age group - just for the record my kid not U15 she is U14 this season and I don't have a horse in this race. But this is all you guys talk about so I wanted to prove some myths to be true or false just by the results. You don't like when IGFA looks better do you? They have the same record at the showcase vs ECNL teams actually stronger ECNL teams this is not opinion this is fact.Why do you get so defensive and are quick to point the finger at parents on that team? I'm not even from NJ - You can go across a bridge or a tunnel then another tunnel if you got money to throw away or the Williamsburg bridge if you don't mind the BQE and get off at metropolitan ave if you wanted to know where we are from.
8,38 and 8,45 what the hell are you saying? Lol you just talk nonsense . Stop following all these trolls from the same guy. Just stop. Let those girls play, whatever team they are on. They work hard and play hard. Stop being so negative and nasty in your comments . What it wrong with you? Get a life . And focus on your daughters.
8:49 I talk nonsense? the guy thinks I'm from jersey. I bring some topics and we always go back to 3 teams then the NJ Elite and Copa wise guys jump in.I thought it was Interesting how IGFA gets killed on this board but a team that rosters way more than 18 and about 1/3 less game gets a bye. And of course I must be with IGFA never saw either team play - but the results don't lie regardless of the style of play.
Any prediction for GFA vs Cincinnati. My guess: Cincinnati will win by 2+ goals.
Any prediction for stallions ? I think they will win 2-0.PDA ? Will win largely like 5/6:0 easy.
May 29, 2016 at 7:13 PMYou just don't get it, nobody is bashing your girls. I watched the Bethesda game (now just so you know before you brag, they were missing 2 of their best players)here were my thoughts on the game. Gfa has some very athletic and skilled girls. On defense they have strong physical defenders. During the game you could see that Bethesda played it as a showcase as they rotated many players in the best example that they played as a showcase was the 2nd half goalie. GFA played it as a Super Bowl. Bethesda had multiple pass possessions on almost every trip up the field while GFA did have some possession they mostly hammered the ball up to #10. It's just not good soccer to watch. The team reminds me of the year older North Rockland Rowdies a few years ago.
Every time a parent decides to move their daughter. They come here and bash the very club that helped them
8:06 - it's clear that someone who knows soccer and is outside of GFA wrote 7:50. How someone knows details about who is missing on the other team or some other team that NJ teams never played - North Rockland Rowdies? Probably some parent from Bethesda wrote a pretty good summary.
7:50 bashing my girls - one plays u14 and one is into dance.So IGFA used a target player in their style of play, what I care more about is how much did the bench players play? Are you saying the bench players didn't play much? Because playing like it was the Super bowl is a good thing that's how you want the kids to play showcase or not. You want competitive games that mean something so the players can be seen how they handle pressure this is very important for the girls that don't play on a regular basis.You guys get hung up on style of play to much - What if your kid wasn't a starter? You would want them playing 50% of a showcase did IGFA not do that? That is a legit black eye if you want to throw punches since this is a showcase and every player on the game day roster should play 50% of the gameLook i'm not the guy you think your talking to but if it makes you happy keep going. I'm not going to call you out.
What did you just write? Are you hangover?Your post lacks theses...have you ever attended a school? What is your point, or do you have one?
gfa plays to win. girls with technical skills have spent hours off on their own to develop those skills. different trainers and lots of sacrifice from both the kids and parents.Don't ever confuse a good technical player with a good soccer program that teach the kids to thread passes together, going through the middle, etc. The GFA's coaches job is to win any way he can. A lot of teams use the same formula, including major universities. These girls are not being groomed to be sold into the premier league or La Liga, They are being groomed to be college soccer players. The only downside to this game is the midfielders.You don't want to be a midfielder and try to develop in this system- which is why they are weak in the middle. The good ones will leave after the parents figure this out.GFA may lack what we may call beautiful soccer but the coach has employed the simple winning formula beautifully. Couple of good strikers up front and a strong back line to keep the score downand of course excessive physicality The ball goes up top as quickly as possible. It works. You may not like it but it keeps them relevant and in top tournaments.The Truth
10:06 You are spot on that they stay relevant. They remind me of the old 99 North Rockland Rowdies.
the 99 dockland rowdies did not have the technical talent that some of these players have on this team. The Rockland Rowdies were groomed from a young age group in a town soccer atmosphere. They were less technical than this group of players.The GFA girls are a collection of players from many programs that were taught good technical soccer.The collections of players were then formed into this coaches system.If you watch some of these girls from goalie to back line to strikers you can easily see that there is some technical sacrifice that went into forming these players.Don't get me wrong, I do not like their system but as individual players some of these players are tops in the state and they can play in any system because the parents have seen to it that their daughters have gotten the requisite technical skill from early on.The Truth
THE TRUTH ! Wow lol
Rock on "the truth" finally not just bashing but intelligent commentary.
Not at all. You are just always whinging
PDA another great game 4:0. Not this is soccer!The ONLY TRUTH
In other news the Harlem Globetrotters beat the Washington Generals 112 -57. Keep lining up the tomato cans PDA. Total joke!!
I am 5:43 I meant " now , this is soccer"
Why would you say "keep lining up the tomato cans PDA" - didn't they play well this weekend? Splash is at the top of their ENCL Bracket....with 23 other ECNL team trailing behind Are you going to tell me that PDA rigged the Showcase....I don't think so. Some of the best soccer talent in the country played and PDA played well. Hornets....not so well...and Madrid not impressive....but we all know how much weight those 3 letters carry. It will get a coaches attention; but doesn't guarantee you will play for college....many PDA sit the bench depending upon the school because when they do get to school they don't always have what it takes....I feel sorry for the PDA players who are going to Match Fit.......what could have been promised to them to make them jump ship....PDA still the best club around......
I am not from PDA, however I believe that PDA played their remaining league games in the tournament. Now that Truth would really show how petty you bone heads from NJ are.
Truth be told pda played the weakest teams in the tournament. They tried to put psa with the top teams in the country well that did not work for them, PSA did well and beat all the teams his weekend. As for PSA bench players they might want to stay on the bench what I saw the added nothing to that team they might stand out on other teams but not the team they are on. I did see alot of collage coaches on the side lines for all their games so for all the haters good luck on the teams you are on with recruiting
6:47 what could have been promised- I don't know maybe playing time? If PDA is so good wouldn't one think they will have 16 great players plus two great goalies? So the players left instead of being part of a subjective view of their skill set for playing time - very smart.7:27 This was an ECNL showcase event - each terams has to play in 2 (NJ, FL, TX, CA) - not league games.8:59 maybe you missed the point SHOWCASE event all kids on roster should play 50% of the game regardless of how good they are. If they are good enough to make the team they are good enough to play in a showcase - this format was created for these kids so teams don't play with a short bench all the time
Wonder where is the administrator of this blog, keep insulting people constantly and nobody is doing anything. So disgusting.
If you do not like this coach or this team don't play there, plain and simple. When my daughter switched clubs because we weren't happy we rarely looked back. I would never think to post about them.How can you still hold all of this anger toward a former coach? Look on any high level team it's competitive and it is up to the coach to decide who plays. If you aren't happy you move on. If you haven't learned this already you certainly will at the college level and quicklyAs for 3rd and 4th flights getting looks, it depends on the program you are looking for. I have been to many college seminars and have been through the process. If you want bigger D1 you need to be in flight 1 or 2. Smaller d1 and d2, d3 will go to the 3rd and 4th flights of a bigger tournaments, but not many show at the 4th flight of a 4 flight tournament.
Coaches on a side line? Are you joking? Have you seen the number of coaches in the main PDA complex? You have 5-7 coaches on a side line and you get excited. And you don't even know how many of them are watching the other, more technical team or players. Again, did you see the side lines in the main PDA complex? Oh, you could not, since you were not there. Feed your delusion and feed your parents with it. They don't know better because they simply don't know. They have not seen better.
Please guys. This nonsense needs to stop. This blog is to share information, not act like children. We're the adults. We'll shut down this page, and all of the rest of them, if people can't clean up the comments, inappropriate language and direct naming of players, coaches and parents. It needs to stop.Thanks for stepping up here so everyone can enjoy the page. Editor.
8:34 I don't know what you were commenting back to but I saw the coaches on the sidelines at the PDA complex, morningside and at rutgers. All had impressive numbers and impressive names. PDA tournament is an important, impressive event for top teams in the country. Don't be so arrogant to think the coaches were only at the main complex. Very arrogant of you and the reason why so many have disdain toward encl parentsBlog Admin the comment about legal was not a threat. I think these slanderous posters should understand they can face civil and criminal charges. As a service to us all can you block the couple of posters that are going to be the cause of this forum being shut down? He/they will stop for a few days and then will start up again.
PSA-IGFA had a pretty good showing for being a non-ecnl team. PDA did a GREAT job rounding up all the top Teams. Competition was amazing and the number out Scouts were ridiculous. Great showcase !!
My daughter was in a non-ecnl group and had 60 coaches at one game and a low of 20 on Sunday. Her team is very pleased with the turn out.
So now MOSA games contribute to GotSoccer points. Serious question - does that mean that higher level teams "accumulating" points will register for MOSA seasons moving forward?JAGS seems to be diluted, at least at the higher levels...
3:43 that's not how Got soccer worksAny flight or league's value is determined by the national rank of the best 5 teams. Then you take 20% of the team's total gotsoccer points to determine what they are eligible for.Example: PDA SPLASH U15 ECNL has 17,025 gotsoccer points 20% of that is 3,405. When gotsoccer manually enters the ECNL conference/division standings they will have this amount deducted from the flight value 5,387 and get 100% as the 1st place team which will be ~ 1,982 this will replace the 1,797 that will fall off as last year's points.I used this team because PDA doesn't care about gotsoccer points right.
@ 5/27 4:54pm - I hear ya. Some kids want both a high level education and high level soccer program. That's all. And, one team from every conference/league will get into NCAA's by virture of winning their respective league/conference. It's getting far into the post season that matters to some kids, too (plus the high level education). And, schools that pick from their (cha ching) clinics/camps, only, may not be in that category. Best of luck in your decisions.
With the new age mandate looming, should the point systems in place be scrapped?
Anonymous said 8:34:You are an idiot, you really think someone is going to bring a "civil" liable case against someone posting on a blog. Do you know how much money it would cost to:1. Get an Lawyer2. File a civil claim3. Subpoena blogs IP addresses4. Find out which ISP owns IP Address5. Subpoena ISP (very costly)6. Get records from ISP7. Re-file new Civil complaint against person who posted.8. What kind of damages do you think you can get????I think you need to stop watching "The Peoples Court" and live in the real world. I hope your daughter does not emulate your stupidity!!
9:07 - hahahaha. Yep. Plus, if there is any truth to the statements alleged, truth is an absolute defense. And, there are abuse of process claims to recoup the fees/plus for nuisance claims/claims without merit.
1. People have friends and family members who are attorneys 2. In some states it is a criminal offense so taxpayers will pay3. Lawyers will take on cases for a cut.4. From what I have read on here this guy has money so if you piss him off enough who knows5. You willing to take that risk?6. Even if the chance is 1% that this guy would take a legal step, the stupidity would be on the part of the poster who feels that it is worth the risk, not to mention the wasted time and emotions to slander a previous coach7.I just stated the facts that it is possible. So that makes me stupid?! It can be done8. I have to assume you are that guy or why even comment as maybe he would have thought twice about posting. Wouldn't we all like him to go away?
And, that's not an insult, right, 11:15 None of this is soccer related.
The only way to deal with trolls, nay sayers and their like is to just ignore them and don't respond to the childish pranks. When In school there was a student who was the ( troll ) . We ignored him and in time he didn't sit at the lunch table anymore.God is good!
Slick Slick Slick,Great weekend,congrats to the girls....
I see Got Soccer has the new age groups up with the new rankings! Some teams fell off the map!
So will this blog be an 01 blog or 00 blog?
Everything will be erased and start at 0.New boards all around
The team to watch out for next year will be COPA!!COPA COPA COPA!!
Which team from EDP NPL will go to NPL finals? Is it just one? Based on current standings it looks NJ Rush and SJEB are tops in South and Wildcats and TSF Academy are top two in North.
NJ WILDCATS FURYSJEB '00G NPL NEW JERSEY RUSH 00 GIRLS NPLTSF ACADEMY 00/01G I think SJEB wins the NPl post season. But the question is do they travel to Denver? and with the SJEB/NJ Rush merger is this the creation of a super team that might move ahead of IGFA and NJ Stallions in the NJ Soccer scene?
SJEB will once again bail out of NPL playoffs and not participate. Most of nj rush girls are not going to SJEB next year outside of one or two. Nj rush girls want no part of traveling to SJEB for practice. This was a disaster for all older nj rush teams.
IGFA will be playing 00 and not 01 so this age group will be up for grabs. The best team is leaving for the much harder age group and I have to commend owner for making that decision. Keeping his girls together and having them compete in that age group will only make that group of girls that much better. I remember PDA used to do the same thing with some of their age groups and having them play up. 01 age group is going to be the weakest age group by far. Splash will be the best team hands down and are the real deal but all other teams will be a combination of current 8th graders and freshman and won't as good. 00s is going to be the age group to play in and you will see teams like IGFA struggle and fall. At the end of the day will it really make a difference? NPL will be combining last 2 age groups every year starting with the 98/99.
I would have to disagree! If you look at the 2000 and the 2001 it looks like the 2000 teams are combo ages playing up in age bracket and If you look at 2001 you will have proven teams that have already been playing u15 this year and doing well.
Who will be the top 2001s besides PDA, in your opinion, 1:49?
Some of you people and your "facts" are comical. SJEB merged with New Jersey Rush South, the thug ball team from central Jersey is not included in that merger.
For all the experts that have failed to predicts Gfa outcome over the last four years and have failed, stick to your day job. How are you able to predetermine how they will play? That IGfA will fall? Worry about getting your daughter playing time at a level worth playing in. It's disturbing to continuously read comments about a team you know nothing about. Why do you care so much about IGFA it makes no sense.
If the thug ball team is not merging with SJEB then why is that entire team trying out all over the place?
I agree 1:37 the 2001 age group is going to be wide open not just in NJ but the entire region. I think the top teams at u14 adding U15 2001s to replace 2002 will be better than the top u15 teams replacing 2000 girls with 2001s but that's why they play the games -this board is for fools like me that enjoy this game a little much. This Friday all the fun starts - 3 games in france followed by training/games for our kids and then we end the day with 2 copa games or at least one if we have conflcts, great month if you are a soccer fan plus of course we sprinkle in a little MLS and NWSL action.Splash and Boston Breakers aka NEFC will be the best ECNL teams not a run away for Splash u14 NEFC team might be the best in the country and I'm not talking GS points and their u15 looks very solid also. East Meadow, PennFusion and MatchFit the only other solid u14 ECNL teams not sure how the U15s are and the new player they brought in. FC Virginia might be the best u14 ECNL team we'll see how things shape up in CA BRYC, SouthShore, Oakwood, Lehigh Valley, New Jersey Wildcats ,1776 United, Penn Legacy GBUFC, FC Frederick, STA, NJ Crush, NYSC, Massapequa, FC Virginia, South Central (CT), SJEB/NJRush & EUSA all very solid U14 teams do any of these have u15 teams that are also solid? There are some other very good u14 teams but these in my opinion are the best non-ecnl teams results based not pretty soccer.What are some of the top U15 teams that are splitting up, from what i read IGFA, new jersey Stallions & Lower Merrion are moving up to U17 or the 2000 age group kind of what like 1776 is trying which I think will hurt that team.
The U14 age group is not as good as the 2000 age group. Clubs that are having large numbers of 2001 players dropping down to play age appropriate are going to be very good teams. The two worst PA teams in the 01/02 age group were FC Bucks and Continental FC, but now those two clubs may have the best 2001 teams in PA as they cleaned house and have new rosters bringing in players from the 2000 ECNL and NPL teams along with adding kids from other clubs. Non ECNL teams are taking major hits where the ECNL teams have grown and become stronger. Far and away from the rest you will see Continental, Penn Fusion and Bucks pull away from the rest of the 2001 teams with little trouble. As for 2000 teams like HBC, IGFA, New Jersey Stallions & Lower Merion don't have a choice, they have to play 2000 as they don't have kids showing up for try-outs. They don't really have numbers or leadership in those clubs to become age appropriate. USYS is hurting. 2001 teams like 1776, LVU and Classics are also in trouble.
I don't argue PennFusion but some how you think average to below average teams U15 teams will pull away when they combine from top U14 teams when they add U15 players to their rosters? ECNL U15 Northeast ConferenceW6 L5 T5 GD +6 Penn Fusion SA ECNL U15W10 L4 T3 GD +7 Penn Fusion SA 00 NPL W11 L8 T3 GD +15 Penn Fusion SA ECNL U14W5 L3 T8 GD +4 FC Bucks ECNL U15W3 L13 T1 GD -25 FC Bucks 00 NPL W1 L21 T0 GD -81 FC Bucks ECNL U14W4 L9 T3 GD -6 Continental FC Delco ECNL U15W8 L7 T2 GD +3 Continental FC 00 NPL W1 L20 T 1 GD -47 Continental FC Delco ECNL U14PennFusion will be the best PA ECNL team the other two ECNL teams will be more of the same and thrown into a group of teams from 1776, PAC, PL & LVU as these teams are among the best U14 teams in the region with wins vs ECNL teams not average to below average ECNL teams
Any of you IGFA families that think your team can beat the current top U16s are either dumb or high or a combination of both! Milan, Gunners, Santos, are all very very good teams! They are not playing 99 either and will be staying in that 00 age bracket. IGFA are very good but those teams are better. So get off your high horse Mr. my kid rides the bench on the best team in NJ and look at the facts!
7:44 i don't understand your post - first you say IGFA won't stack up against the best u16 teams and then you pick pick on the bench players of a team that won't stack up? Something about that just seems wrong.
@4:40 What does them trying out all over the place have to do with whether or not they are merging with SJEB? Maybe they are just fed up with the joke of a coach they have. Besides, tryouts are over, I think they waited a bit too long to "try out all over the place".
I'm not picking on anybody but this guy that loves chirping on the blog forgets his kid doesn't play yet he loves to run his mouth. Then when he sees me he bows his head like a good little boy!
No one knows what will be. As 99s move out of the current u16 teams that age group too is a question mark. The only thing you can say with any certainty is that Gunners will be strong as gunners and splash are both strong so pretty certain their 00s will be.. so can we just sit back. All these predictions are no more than bitter people wishing failure on other teams. So transparent and rather sad
12:30 wishing failure? or just talking about other teams you know other options? Predictions are fun and this was supposed to be a fun ride to watch our kids become college athletes, no? Since when is it taboo to talk about results. Since we are on results did you guys catch the result between our u20 USWNT and Japan? I'll just say the score was 5-0 and we didn't win.
June 6 @ 3:58pm IGFA has had 2 excellent Springs but prior to that were an average team with very little results. They have been on the rise but playing @ U-17 they will not have the same success.
why, why , why the usual troll are always coming back?? we can talk about anything and it always ends up with the same provocation.Just go away
Isnt that all they play anyway?

June 6th EDP released a statement that it would flight teams that have mixed aged players with other teams with similar player make up.
what does Match Fit and New England Patriots have in common??Both are CHEATERS!!!Match Fit got caught once again trying to use older players for younger teams to try to win games.
First time on here. So this is mostly a NJ blog I see.Arrogance and sarcasm galore...not many factsBtw, the GDA acceptances are starting to roll out...
And who has been accepted so far?
8:40 - Welcome newbie! Don't take this blog too seriously. It takes awhile to learn about the regular characters and how to read through the posts. The truth is out there. I recommend reading one up and one down from your target age group to understand this soccer phenomena. Just like people disagree about the existence of aliens and the paranormal, people disagree about youth soccer and the soccer-industrial complex. Many who post here truly believe, while others are skeptics and try to make scientific analyses of the statements to debunk them and thus return to the mainstream. However, we may all be pawns in a larger conflict and thus should come to trust each other.
Thanks, I've been posting on other blogs, not a whole lot different. I was hoping with older age groups, that the vitriol would lessen but when NJ and NY rule the blog, that ain't happening!! :)Sounders are in...PAC most likely...
NJ Stallions lost to FC Bucks at PDA. They are not as good as most ECNL teams and they won't get the same recruitment opportunities. The Better players should look at PDA, FC Bucks, World Class before everything implodes!
That was a random comment. Bucks also HBC and a strong FC Virginia ECNL at PDA. Also have beat WC. Yes lets all make the drive down to PA to play on this amazing team.
To June 9, 2016 at 8:14 AM - how do you know MF got caught using older players on younger teams and which teams? How did they get caught?
MF used older players help EDP younger teams to win games. DOC unhappy with players and results, decided to bring illegal players to win games. Same reason NY NPL teams have been disbanded. DOC does not have knowledge to develop players or teams. His fame is to take develop players from opposing clubs then take credit for college committments like he is doing with stallions player this year. Same old storyStrongest age group all left, he must be banging his head
To June 9th 10:41 p.m. - thought the DOC knew what he was doing with the Club; not sure the ENCL Director knows what he's doing. Under the impression that MF doesn't really win games.....not sure why no one else is picking up on this....they appear to be very scattered and not well run for a large academy club. So why was the NY NPL teams disbanded? So the club brought in all these players to play on NY NPL teams and now cut them loose....am I understanding corretly?
12;47 any club can take credit for any player they had for 2 or more years.
Sorry that was for 10:41.12;47 regardless of what you or I think of MF they offer an opportunity for players to showcase their skills in the best league as of today. Also their NYCSL NPL was their C team - maybe they don't have a player pool for 3 competitive teams or maybe they can on play in one NPL? They have teams in 2 NPLS which I didn't think they could do so maybe they had no choice but to cut drop the team
To June 10 7:37 a.m. Well if that's the case then why would MF bring on all those players to field teams that they knew would put the club in conflict with the rules.....unless it was all about the money. You take all those players' fees....quite a way to cushion your cash flow....wow hard to believe that a club like MF would set up all those players for failure....put them on a team that they knew would go nowhere....I wonder what chapter of the coach's handbook this falls under? Well, unfortunately, it sounds like there are lot of people who were affected by this less than ethical approach to managing players and teams
Is it true that half of STA U15 NPL team left to MF ECNL? If it is my question is why MF?
To June 10th 11:53 - how would that be possible - what would have happened to the existing U15 MF ENCL players???? Would MF cut them as they have apparently cut other players?
MF brought in players making promises, well did not stand behind a word that was said.Bring in players, convince them to leave a team. Once part of team, then these players do not play. DOC says things that he can never back up. DOC is continuously posting on these blogs protesting MF. Very obvious, check out U14 Blog. Perfect example of a person who tells so many lies, he actually believe them. He cant tell what is true and what is not.MF management is a disaster
protecting. autocorrect on phone was not caught
so is this the 2000 or the 2001 blog??????????
DB at MF is known for over promising things to incoming players. He will tell them they will start and play 75% of he game an he has to have her and then you go there and you barely play or don't get rostered or are asked to go to the NPL team. They don't teach the girls anything. Spends 90% of practices as scrimmage.
STA is a solid team and apparently very well run... girls are crazy to jump ship for MF! Hope that's not true.
Sta solid? Team is basically done. Everybody is leaving or already left .Not only to MF
What's going on with STA that players are jumping ship?
Sta parents think their girls are better than they are. That team will now drop off the map.
338 if they are so bad then how did half the team (as posted here , I have no idea if that's true or not) make other teams if they aren't good enough?
STA are a good team. They play a really nice game and are well coached. Sad if kids left that team for something else. STA did a nice job with the 00/01 team.
I bet the fact that Matchfit had so many openings this year on the ECNL team combined with the promises about playing time, starting, Etc. was too much for some parents to resist.
Best Sta players didn't go to match fit . They left but not there
Then where did they go since you seem to have the information
7:10 you won't get an answer
If MF is this mismanaged and flagrant in their business practices then it won't be long before US Soccer,ENCL and NPL urge the owner to make sure he has reputable people managing the club and ethical coaching practices in place.......if all the families affected by bad coaching practices on the part of MF stand together you can affect change......there's no room in youth sports for unethical behavior at the club level....at any level; but families pay a lot of money to these "academy" teams and to have a coach or club to play bait and switch is unconscionable
Stallions losing lots of players . What happened?
Sat best player now playing center back for PDA hornets.
Hornets are the B team. Why would you want that!
Wasn't STA also in a higher flight at Jefferson?But I guess you have the opportunity to earn an ECNL spot after the ECNL coach passed the first time.just for the record 5th flight at Jefferson8th flight at CASLDid not do very well at PDA Showcase and was in the same flight as STA (STA won their games)Both NPL teams.To each their own.
any PDA team a better spot then STA,unless they bring Big Bird back..

Who is big bird? Don't know too much about STA but daughter has played them in the past and they are definitely better than PDA B team. Sadly, those kids will have buyers regret. And will never move up, if that was their hope (or was promised)!
andy,you should be in FLA,not on the blog
I agree sticking to these two teams.Why would a player leave a team that plays in the same flight as the new club's A team for the B team?Those same coaches coming to see the A team Splash by default would also see STA example the CASL event. But like I said to each their own - it is PDA brand right. We are beyond development and it's all about being seen now, if a player thinks the brand in 4 events is better than a team playing in better flights in double the events that's their call.

STA won't be the same caliber team going forward! Many girls leaving or moving up to 2000 age group. They have a great coach but she's no miracle worker. Even the back of their roster left for Matchfit ECNL. Go figure!
7:51 with that being said the road to the 2017 NPL Finals destination unknown via the NYCSL NPL just got easier.I get going to play in ECNL to be part of the showcase events.If your team is good enough for the playoffs even better.To me if your team plays:League games in the National League you are set as two tournament weekends in NC and at Disney will get you plenty of looks, if you can add Bethesda (trying to make it like the Dallas Cup), Jefferson & PDA showcase or Delco players Cup to go with NCS and the ERL you are getting the same amount of coverage as ECNL. Top teams will advance to Region1 Championships and national Championshipsor if you play those same tournaments and in your team plays in an NPL I think you are good as well.All of this in addition to going to the school's ID camp that you want and your in. If you want your kid to be discovered and offered a full ride -then I have no clue.We all do what is best for our kids.if it's ECNL great if it's NPL "b"team great if it's NPL "a" team great if it's ERL or NL great. I guess what i'm saying is your kid can play and want's to play college soccer she will.We have the best development league in the world that we don't use maybe some day the USSF will wake up and work with the NCAA to allow the colleges to be the DA teams and allow the players to reduce the tuition to the school by the amount the parents payed for the kid to train with the school.2k a year from U9 to U18 = $20,000 less for the player to attend the school regardless if they play for the school or just getting their degree. This will fix our pyramid.
I just think if top D1 are already looking at you and you're only playing in the NPL then there is no reason to play in the ECNL unless you want to play on the national level. Only the top players in those leagues will be chosen to play on the national stage. If you were already bottom half of you NPL roster and no colleges were looking at you, playing in the ECNL isn't going to change that.
If you are bottom half on npl team,you should not play ecnl,if they take you its just for the money....MF is known for this.
9:58 here - 4:07 I agree 100%, but does that mean the kid stops trying?let's not forget they are U15 today and still have plenty of growing up to do.Why does she have to be a complete player today.As long as she is in a place that she wants to be is all that matters.If it was me, which it isn't I would rather have my girl play for a team Nj Stallions and maybe IGFA since they might be in the same boat orany other team that does this.Plays League games in the national league (NC & Disney)plays league games in the ERLplays league games in the NPLthis will provide and opportunity to play at the USYSA Region1 Championships and the national Championship plus the NPL finals and for a State Championship also of course.These teams also will play in 6 or more top showcase events - many more opportunities than a ECNL team for your kid to have a good game all it takes is one to get on the grid then the pressure is off and your kid can do what she does, that's just me.I don't know how the teams will look come the 16/17 season but based on the 15/16 season i would have picked STA over Hornets but that's just looking at the results and the opportunities one had.

When does the nj rush / SJEB merger take effect? Basically no more older teams for nj rush. Sad part is none of rush girls going to SJEB. Instead of staying together they r trying out at wildcats, PDA shore and south, COPA south.
MF 2001 team have 27 kids on roster, what are they thinking
STA coach isn't all she's made out to be on here. A loud-mouthed failed soccer player that thinks she knows all because she played in the UK. Girls are making a good decision if leaving her.
Sounds like most coaches so what. Give it a rest already,'girls are leaving but can't say where they are all going stir the pot with no information sta hater.
Girls leaving , very easy to know where: PDA, Igfa, match fit. The main went there. Why is so complicated t say it? Very normal.Move on now and new girls are coming from Nj elite, Wildcats etc...
STA coach is very good, the team was very flawed. They lost a lot of good talented players when their original coach left. 4 coaches in 2 years takes its toll on you. Some of the players they brought up were of a lesser caliber and were only promoted because of ties parents had with the former coach. New coach inherited a mess. A team with only 1 really talented player and a bunch of average players. New clubs will be very disappointed with what they got from STA with the exception of PDA Splash who grabbed STA's best player.
Is Splash playing '00 or '01?
Splash is playing 01....
Well lets be honest! Its not really the splash. Most of the Splash players were 00's. I'm not saying they wont be any good but its a different team.
Most? How many? Ten?How many Storm are '01? (in other words, how many Storm become Splash)- and yeah, I know they also took in from outside the clubthanks
PDA will be the teams to beat in most of the age brackets!
PDA Splash will be a very strong team next season 2001s are great players - from inside or outside of the club.
I heard STA player gong to ECNL playoffs with Splash.
2:06 and PDA is not about winning? I laugh every time I hear that.
At this age it should be about winning! Nobody plays to lose!
How about last year?
My daughter is going to ECNL championshipsThen changing back to her old team afterwards
They are playing in birth year
PDA as everyone else had to accept the change - birth year. It did not work for some unfortunately...
Splash the best team in region by far(u15)nobody even close,next year we will see losing a lot of top players...MF took girls from sta,stallions,and igfa,made a lot of promises,some will not be happy,roster to big,some will have to play npl
Splash still has to beat IGFA so calm down koolaid drinkers
IGFA didn't make the finals at Jeff Cup. Missed their shot at the Splash this year.
And they still have never beat IGFA so the opposition will still have to prove that they can until then Splash is still second rate in NJ
Troll do not fall for it
gfa mom relax,you are not in the same league as pda splash.keep playing jags....lol...congrats on your big win edp summer showcase...lol
What happened to stallions, best player went to match fit together with another couple of girls. Match fit has been getting lots of good players . Seems Match fit will prove everybody wrong next year. The team is going to be way stronger than now. Feel bad for sta , they were a good team for a long while.
When splash actually wins a game verses IGFA you can only wish ... Remember you were with us during 7-2 slashing and you missed the 4-2 loss because you jumped shipped thinking it will impede the results... Splash splish wish ... Keep thinking you can
10:42 why you are here? You are just an idiot. Just go away with your provocation. Really go away. Blog has been much better without your constant provocation that push additional idiots in here
Gfa momWhy dont you join MF (they take anyone with a check)then you get your wish to play splash....lol
It's okay splash we understand the bitterness of never coming close to beating such an insignificant team. Remember when you had the 2-0 lead in the midatalntic regional game? Then out of nowhere it was 4-2.... The looks on your parents face when taking the big L on your home turf was priceless. All of you thought that the best players had left. Sort memory right. We understand the bitterness and it's okay . That's called denial. It's the first stage of accepting that splash was and still unable to deal with the agony of defeat. At least the second time around you shook hands. That's a sign of growth. One day you might, simply might accept the truth until then drink up.
Ignore the past five comments, they are from the same person, he is answering himself to create problems. He is trying to start again the same disgusting game that was going on for a while. He is desperate to get this shit back in the blog. Why, no idea but this is the ONLY agenda in his life. Please stop.
NJ Elite will be best 01 team in the state! Best coach around!
Gfa and Sta to merge, both lost too many players to MF
Actually Igfa didn't lose any player to match fit , guess your information are wrong .actually match fit players went to Igfa
Why would IGFA want any of the players from STA? They're a B team!
Clueless just wait
Wait for what , for the players to go to match fit lol. Ok will wait.
Down to 12...lol...will you make it to Colorado?
Lol yes we play 8v8 you didn't know that?
Who is down to 12?GFA-PRINCETON? Why so many? All bench players? Any starter?
Princeton not down to 12 so not sure what team that was about
Does anyone have any information on what's happening with STA for 2000s.....2001s looks like there's a lot of questons - is the team merging with other players? What's going to happen to their record?
Who is going to CO from EDP NPL?. Semifinal score posted only. SJEB over TSF 2-0.
STA 2000s will be fine. They already had a U16 team before the age change. Some of those players were 99s so they moved up, the 00s from U15 moved up as well. They should be decent.
PDA 2000 will be national champions. 2001 are also looking good. World Class super stud u16 gnt player is a 2000 and they will be tough to beat if your team can't match up with her. 01 will probably struggle. Albertson best attacking players are mostly 99 on their u16s so probably their 00s will struggle. East Meadow will pick up solid 00s from their U16s and excellent 01s from their 14s and probably surprise people. Matchfit will be solid at both ages. Their u16 defense is very good and all 00s. Penn Fusion 00s will be tough but I don't think a match for PDA. 01s may have it a bit tough without their GNT stud. Bucks lost 00s to strikers but their 15 00s are decent. remains to be seen how that comes together. CFC 00s and 01 will struggle with the 15s and 16s this year both bottom of the table.MD 00s and 01s will be all about Bethesda. Virginia should be dominated by Mclean. Which non ECNL teams lost players to the ECNL. What's up with PAC did they pick up players in advance for the GDA? Did Premier stay together are they playing 00? HBC playing 00? How will they compete among older teams? Did they pick up any older 00s?discuss...
Nobody cares about PAC
HBC Impact? I will assume they will play at the '00 level. Hearing they have added quite a few players recently though, so who knows?
People will care a lot about PAC when they are among the first wave to be awarded a DA spot. Got their USSF coach set up to attract 00s before the year is up. Anyone within 2 hours with an 00 hoping to make the jump to the U16 gnt will be trolling their practices no doubt.
