I'm an orthopedic and to the person that say he's never heard of an increase in injury due to cold weather is wrong. First off the ground is going to be rock hard and slick because of the elements. Therefore making traction very difficult. Because of that it can result in awkward falls onto cement like surfaces. The other injuries that will be more common are muscle pulls.. Hamstrings, groins etc... It's very hard to keep those muscles from cramping up in the cold weather. Hopefully none of out kids experience it but the chances of any if these things happening is increased dramatically because of the cold. I live to watch my kids play and honestly the weather doesn't bother me at all. They won't cancel this but I do think there's a chance of them canceling the young ones., maybe U12and under.

Mr.(Ms.) Ortho,

I could understand the hard ground theory if the majority of games were not played on turf. I am not a chemist, however, I don't think the temperature affects the elasticity of a turf surface.
I hope, given the colder temperatures, coaches will have the players sufficiently warmed up. As long as that happens, I don't see a problem, other than the discomfort of it being cold.

Anonymous said...

lots of talking... bottom line is that we are going to freeze our asses off. and that's it

Anonymous said...

I agree with you. I'm not saying they will get hurt, hopefully will not. Turf can be harder than grass! I was just commenting on the comment of "never hearing of getting injured because of cold weather".. Our coach just emailed us and said that Manhattan is making there decisions on what they are going to so tomorrow!

Manhattan schedules pulled from the website!!!

NJSA04 is coming out really strong. you will see this season . they will be in the top groups really soon.

Regarding any tournament, safety should always be the top priority over anything else. MSC stands to lose a great deal of $$$ if its cancelled but to have games on frozen fields in sub zero temps---ask yourself does that make any sense?

Its always worth the money

Playing is better than not playing.

Dont criticize teams for playing MAPS. That's just elite BS speak.

Anonymous said...

NJSA has a very good coach, but if the players are the same I don't see them making a run in the spring, they are more thank likely being placed higher due to the club name and the relationships that group has with tournaments.

They have improved their quality of play but again still the same group of players.

Anonymous said...

They are turf fields, not grass. They don't freeze the same way.

Anonymous said...

Guess you missed the common sense aspect

Anonymous said...

What does that mean they don't freeze the same way? Are you kidding me.. If anything a frozen turf field is much worse then a frozen grass field. It's much harder to clear a turf field that has ice then a grass field. Come on man... Playing soccer in 0-25 degree weather is nothing but stupid. Yes if it's not cxld I will be one of the stupid ones there but it is stupid... Anyone who says otherwise needs there heads examined.. Especially with the start of the season right around the corner..

Playability



Artificial turf allows various sports to be played on one field throughout the year. As turf is more durable than grass, games aren't being cancelled due to wet conditions or a muddy field after it rains. Players don't have to worry about slipping in mud, twisting an ankle in holes or running on an uneven playing surface.

When a grass field freezes, it becomes extremely hard and increases the potential for injuries. Artificial turf does not freeze



Anonymous said...

Al,

How about an update for the weekend. Are getting an improved forecast?

Anonymous said...

No

Went from 20% to 50% chance of precipitation.

Anonymous said...

First off there is no reason to worry about mud when it's below freezing out. I agree with the in even playing surface and yes if I had the choice to play on either grass or turf in these conditions it would definitely be turf. With that said that doesn't mean it's a good option, just a better one. Either way it stinks. The weather for Sunday is worse now then originally forecasted. My guess is that they are definite playing. The reason for the delay is that they are going to cancel lower age groups an are rearranging all the older age groups. Otherwise we would if heard already.

Anonymous said...

Agree with last post. Hopefully the games can start a little later too.

Anonymous said...

PDA hornets are ready to kick butts anytime with any weather conditions!

Anonymous said...

Given the wind chills, Friday night games will most certainly be moved. Early Saturday is a problem too. Maybe after 11 it's about freezing out with SW winds (not bitter - not great, but not winds from Canada). Sunday am is better than Saturday and maybe 9 works because storms might come in later in the day.
If it's a go - cross your fingers you are mid day with light winds before the rain comes. Feelin lucky?

If there are teams coming in that have to fly or take a team bus, you are correct, they already know.

Manhattan had about 90 fields available for play. If you go on the website today, they were at 27 and now down to 24. Not many games going to be played this weekend it looks like.

I wonder how PDA Splash will do this week. Can't wait. Based on what I read here, they should win everything. They are simply "unbeatable".

For everyone else, it is not worth it. They should just give them the gold medals. Since they don't line up for anything less...haha

And if they lose, it would be just because it was too damn cold. You simply can't win! Just stay warm at home and don't bother.

Manhattan Tournament OFFICIALLY canceled. The whole tournament, not just a few flights.

Anonymous said...

From the tournament:

It is with disappointment that we are writing to you to inform you that we are canceling the Manhattan Soccer Club KOC 2014 Tournament.
The following circumstances led to our decision: (1) we lost 7-8 fields this morning as the fields were frozen and or were determined to be unsafe; (2) the weather forecast did not improve and the temperatures predicted for Saturday morning actually fell; and (3) the storm forecast for Sunday has worsened and may impact travel on Sunday evening.
We attempted to reschedule yet again with a later start on Saturday morning, but the loss of backup fields, and a worsening forecast for Saturday and Sunday have led us to this decision.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Thoughtfully,
MSC

very smart decision, classy move by providing full refunds to teams, most tournaments keep a percentage even if tournament get cancelled!

Yes, I wish they would re-schedule it (rather than cancel it) for later in the upcoming spring season.

Too hard to reschedule all of those fields. Need permits. Have lots of teams using the fields. Need permits. Nothing is easy in the city.

Kudos-lots of kudos to MSC for canceling and giving the refunds. They are a class act.
Hope next year will not be freakishly cold again. Bring on Spring already.

Coaches should reach out to each other to play some friendlies to make up for missing tourney games.
I know you don't get points for friendlies, but it's about development, isn't it? Who needs hotels and tournaments and more than one game in a day, which is counterproductive anyway, when we have good teams to play against right in our backyard. Pick up the phone, send an email and get the girls on the field. Not that difficult.
Then again, what do I know? I'm just a squirrel tryin to get a nut.

Edit, NJ Force Crush - Coach

Anonymous said...

The fifties aren't until the weekend and comes with rain overnight. Frigid tomorrow and pretty cold the rest of the week so there might not be time to melt. Maybe they will turn on the sprinklers to melt it, but probably not looking good.
As far as Force Crush, unless the whole team goes it will be a failure. Not enough time to prove the team will be stable and draw replacements off those that don't go. The rumors might be enough to tear them apart anyway. Panic over the possibility will cause some to seek out stability elsewhere. It will be a shame if the coach leads to their demise - especially if it is only for his motives and not for the team.

It is not the Former Jackson Sharks players or the parents, let's be real, it is the leadership (or lack there of) the coach of the team. He has his own agenda, you would have to your child play for that team. There are much better options out there, this guys know nothing about the game. Watch him on the sidelines, if your daughters team happens to be playing against him. Spends most of the game yelling and berating refs. A real class act (of course I'm being sarcastic).

there were rumors of the force merging with the jackson team a couple of months ago. Any truth to that? I know RB is friendly with those coaches on the attack.

why would they merge with Jackson Attack? I think they were talking about picking up players from the former Jackson Sharks.

I believe the real story will be if and how many would follow that coach to JSA? He really has no credibility and most have a very low opinion of him. No real soccer IQ, just in it to make a living. Again, sorry for the NJ Force program, how can they not see this guy is trying to ruin this club. Shame on that guy.

Anonymous said...

There is a lot more to it than just the coach. A lot of favoritism with the old Jackson Sharks players. They don't realize that the others on the team despise them (parents) because they push their agenda on whomever is the coach. They are constantly seeking out "greener pastures."

Not looking to bash but other than beating SJEB once Force haven't beaten any of the top teams in the Region. Other than Got Soccer pts what do they have? Look at the wins on Got Soccer & you'll see they don't have quality wins against the top teams so to say they are one I the best is puzzling.

If you are not looking to bash then at least get your facts straight. I looked up the force's games on got soccer. They've beaten SJEB twice and tied them once, beaten,tied and lost to FC bucks ,beaten,tied and lost to Americans, tied NYSC and have played several other teams that are respectable and competitive. Sounds like you are just trying to start trouble. Find something better to do with your free time.

Why are we even discussing the NJ Force team, based upon the rumors that are out their, many of the players may or may not follow, their current coach, if you can call him that, no soccer IQ. He is attempting to start a new club JSA, RJ must be ok with it, he should have asked that coach to leave, he will break up the team at this age group and the u12 team as well. He is only about making a living, no real knowledge of the game and can't teach the players anything about the tactical or technical part of the game. This team will not look the same after the season, surprised that many haven't already jumped ship

Happen to be at the Jackson Justice Complex yesterday and today. I have two daughters play in u11 and u13 and I got a chance to see the Jackson Attack play in two games. Well I have to hand it to this blog and the things that the parents say is definitely true about this team.

Four coaches on the sidelines, yelling every time there teams gets the ball giving them play by play instructions was really sad.

They got beat by Freehold 4-0 and NJ Wildcats 2-0 (at least i left)

Jackson Soccer should really look at what this team has done over the past year and evaluate them and the coaching staff.

They have (5)five really good players who NOW need to move on, especially if they want to play at a higher level, in High school or College.

I hope the parents are not paying a lot for training, because their players keep making the same mistakes over and over again.

Players who play like that are a reflection of the coaching Staff and that's sad. Parent need to realize that when the Shark left (The A team) they should have stepped to that roll. If you look at what they have done since the sharks have left, they look like the C team.

Parents for the sake of your Daughter please move on, Attack has some really nice players, some teams would love to have them, NJX, Matchfit, PDA, NJSA PDA-Shore,STA ETC.......

Don't have those good players left behind

I was at the Jackson Complex this weekend as well and I have to say, that both Freehold and NJ Wildcats looked pretty good. Lots of possession by both teams, and attacking players looked strong, and very litle kick-ball. Wildcats have a really good GK and they utilize her as a field player as well, and very active off her line. It was nice seeing 2 U13G play some nice style soccer. Jackson on the other hand needs some work but the previous post is correct as all 4 coaches were screaming all game as they do have a few talented players on that team. Still very early in the season but what I saw was impressive from Freehold and Wildcats this weekend.

Anonymous said...

Sounds like someone at NJX is at it again posting now about Jackson Attack team to try to get players to come play on NJX team that the same Jackson Attack beat them 4-0 in EDP this fall...First, broke up and disbanded the Jackson Shark team, and now trying to sway players to NJX. Sad what youth soccer has turned into. Shame!

Freehold and possession don't go in the same sentence. All they do is drop it back to the big defender who smashes it down the field.

NJSA, is now Cedar Stare. They will not have girls teams next year, so all of those players will have to find another team to play for, my guess is that many may go to PDA Shore...So get your info straight before you post this will be a good option.

So Jackson Attack haters are back on this blog. Have you all lost it? They played two games over the weekend and someone was just their to watch the games? That is kind of creepy. Either you had a daughter/grand daughter/niece/cousin playing or you are just creepy........

This team has stayed together for a long time, yes they do have 4 or 5 good players, most are not from their original team. Yes they do have too many voices on the sidelines, but they seem to be happy with where they are, so just let them be and let them enjoy their experience. No I wouldn't want my daughter to play for that team.

As for Freehold, always been a big, physical, athletic team. Don't really play a possession game, more of a direct style and try and keep pressure on your backs the entire game. NJ Wildcats --- Talk about rough coaches, they consistently berate their players, very obnoxious...Would never have my daughter play there not a top team but not a bad team. No possession from that team as well.

Every player will find her level...and hopefully excel at that level...everyone is different and want different things....just hope their parents don't get in their way....

Too much bashing....How do so many people know about how parents of a team act, like the NJ Force Team? That team is not what it used to be under the old coach...Hint---The current coach is very good, no soccer IQ...That team will look much different next year, if there is a team next year. Will many of those players be playing under the JSA organization? That would be a poor decision....

It is all just a money making scheme for the most part...All about people making a living off of soccer...OK to a point, but not when people get taken advantage of wink, wink....we all know the clubs that can rip you off....Or maybe you just don't know it, don't be blind......You are dreaming if you think your daughter is getting a free ride to a D1 school.....Do your homework....Find out the real information!!!!

Why don't we move on and start talking early season picks for EDP divisions, Region 1 leagues, ECNL, Northeast girls, NPL's, State Cup . . . Something that could spark some debate over soccer rather than who's falling apart or who has horrible parents.

I see NJ doing poorly in NYCSL NPL - STA probably could pull off second place. NE Girls PDA might be NJ's best hope, but I think FC Stars will take it and ECNL will be the worst NJ showing where Splash will be a lowly third place.
Region 1 only has a couple NJ teams between both leagues and only the Americans might challenge - don't think they'd beat the south division though. All in all, nj may have a very bad spring in these top leagues.

The weaker EDP and EDL NPL are easy pickings for NJ and I see SJEB representing at nationals where they will be defeated.

State cup to Splash.

Wow, maybe NJ needs to merge a few teams to come up with at least a couple of really good ones...

no need, all the talent is at Splash or will be within next year

keep dreamin

If all the good players come there, then that would produce the same result as merging 2-3 teams.

Can't really see that happening though. Too many options that may not be quite as good, but are good enough when you look at cost and travel time.

Splash = Overhyped

They will not contend nationally. Early Comeuppance National League

4:03, I appreciate your trying to change the subject from bashing certain clubs but then in your next breath you did the same thing...just changed the teams.
Clearly you have no clue about ecnl at this age if you think fc stars will "take it". They are in mediocre at this age.

Did anyone check out the JSA tryouts this past weekend?

Anonymous said...

I said FC stars in NE girls - the wannabes. Their second team is better than the others.

I reread my post and don't think I bashed anyone either. It is impressive that NJ has so many teams in such competitive leagues / divisions, but I think they are hard pressed to win them. I was expressing an opinion to invite debate. "I do not think they are the best in their divisions" is not saying they are bad or don't deserve to be there. They are very good and a tribute to the girls that play on them - but this spring they have their work cut out for them.

Curious... Forget what got soccer has to say:
Who are the top 10 teams in NJ?

Anonymous said...

Top 10 NJ teams based on success against other top teams from the Region:
PDA Splash
Americans
SJEB
Brick
NJ Force
STA
NJ Crush
PDA Hornets
Freehold
TRIC, FC Copa or GFA(take your pick)

Is it true that NJSA is folding in Jackson?

Anonymous said...

Nice that out of those top ten, NJ has teams in each of those six leagues so if all went well, NJ would hold title for ECNL (Splash), NYCSL NPL, (STA), NE Girls NPL (PDA Madrid), EDL NPL (SJEB), Region 1 Premier (Americans), Region 1 Colonial (NJ Crush) and only the NE Region 1 would be out of state - no NJ team in that one.
Would be nice to make us all proud.

PDA should get the Hornets into a Region 1 league. They'd really corner the market if all their teams were in higher level leagues.

Doesn't match fit have an NPL team in this age group? Or does the u12 team play up?

Anonymous said...

Anyone have scores from this weekednds scrimmages? The only ones i heard were the two games at Jackson

Anonymous said...

Scrimmages are just that as they are not real games unless you play them like a real game but no real high level team does.

Anonymous said...

Guess your team lost. Anyhow, could someone post?

Anonymous said...

You never lose. something can be gained from every game win or lose.

Match Fit does have a U13 NPL team.. There awful! This is why you don't see them in any tournaments, there afraid of being further embarrassed. It's a shame because they have some good talent but a few good players isn't going to get it done.

Some scores from scrimmages this weekend :

Holmdel NJX 4-0 Match Fit Blue

FC Copa 2-2 Americans

Wildcats 2-0 Jackson

Premier Strikers won at FC Europa Turf Cup. Only NJ team there was Real Galaxy. They took 2nd place in bracket after losing to Premier Strikers 3-0.

Found out from u12 board MF does NOT have an NPL team at this age group the u12 girls play up. Which means MF has a bad ECNL team and no NPL team in this ge group. WOW.

Anonymous said...

The current MF Blue team or the Current NJX team will eventuallly move into that NPL slot.

Anonymous said...

Looks like Premier only "quality" team at FC Europa Turf Cup. Most teams probably geared up for Manhattan or other tourneys and overlooked this one only to be snowed out, while they got this one in last weekend. Easy Got Soccer points for Premier, but they are one of the better teams in the Region.

MF will fill those current U13 slots with full teams coming in.

Anonymous said...

Exactly . They will bring full teams already trained by msomeone else. Does anyone else see a problem in girls soccer?.....

Anonymous said...

At this age Match fit has a pre-ecnl team. They also had the u-12 team playing up NPL U-13. Not sure who Match Fit Blue is. I would guess Parsippany?

Anonymous said...

Match fit blue is the EDP Team. They played last year too. MF has two teams in this age group MF Pre-ECNl and Match fit blue. NO npl team. Rather ebarrassing they dont have a strong A team and have no real B team.. Parsippany team still listed as Parsippany, even thought they affiliated. Not a strong team either.

Anonymous said...

They have Match Fit Energy too... that was Warren United Energy. Town team took the MF name.

Sad...

Anonymous said...

I see the blue team on their website. Listed as a US club team -not sure what that means. Do not see the Energy Team on their website....

Anonymous said...

Match fit blue IS match fit energy. Same team

Anonymous said...

Just as PDA Hornets are listed as PDA blue on their page. Energy is just the Team name same as Hornets

Anonymous said...

There is definitely some BiAs in the top ten... no need to throe out acronyms...can't wait to see that assumption proven wrong by the end of spring..5 of those listed will still be there... the others will not...hint..#bias#monopoly soccer#pay to play#your predictions sound more like wishful thinking#Parents Delusional Assumptions

Anonymous said...

Got soccer has MF Blue and Match fit energy listed as two different teams. Very confusing. MF energy is listed as an EDP team this spring. Where does MF blue play then?

Anonymous said...

so tired of the top 10 talk on this site, how about telling us who the up & comers are, who we need to look out for. Teams that weren 't on the above top 10.

Anonymous said...

Can't tell up and comers until at least three or four games into the season. Everybody thinks they look good at scrimmages and that new players will make them better.

Is it possible to have multiple standouts within the academy if they are putting together multiple within the same age group...who are parents supppose to believe... are parents okay with these mergers and acquisitions if they are limited to playing in a particular league..division... can you have 4 quality u13 from the same academy in the same league..just asking...to get away...from the top rwn crapola

Anonymous said...

I don't think you can have them in the same league. Like I said earlier for PDA, they already have an ECNL team and a NE Girls NPL, but they could easily add a Region 1 Premier League team which is prestigious on its own. Second NPL team could be put in EDL and maybe NYCSL even if those three different NPL's could square off at nationals. Even a region 1 colonial team could squeeze in. That would be six squads in limited access leagues that would only compete against each other at nationals. Plenty of desirable roster spots in that model.

Anonymous said...

A PDA "b" team isn't getting into Region 1 Premier. As an ECNLClub they don want to play that game, and even if they did, who are they bumping? NPL is a collection of average teams, just a different wrapper to get people to buy-in that they are getting an elite experience. If a team is that good they are in ECNL or Region 1 Premier, everything else is playing just to be in a league, but is far from the best competition.

Teams dont necessarily need to choose between NPL and Region 1, in case you didnt know
