"Completely agree!! Fun weeks and good soccer played by the Top 4"

What top 4? Top of what exactly?

Anonymous said...

I think they meant top 4 teams at that tournament clearly not top 4 in State or Region etc. PA Rush are PA State Champions. Nice win for Real after a rough Summer so far.

1:25 relax , always somebody trying to pick a fight to bash . we all meant the top 4 in the tournament . God forbid .

So what did the Old Bridge coaches do at the tournament. They usually have 4 or 5 coaches on the sideline. Like an American football team.

Real parents - what did you see/hear?

As entertaining as some of these comments are.  It was not nearly as bad as some are implying.  My niece plays for Old Bridge-and my daughter for another club.  Only 1 Ref was assigned to the game—and the ref  did not run more than 10 yards in either direction from midfield.  The game was a little physical but nothing malicious.  Yellows were given to 2 real players—although I think it was just the refs attempt to not let the game get out of hand.  Shortly after that, a real player was dribbling in the box and the Old Bridge keeper challenged.  Both kids went down.  The real parents let out a roar and the ref awarded real with a PK.  One of the Old Bridge coaches yelled at the ref that he let the real parents call the game for him and that the ref was out of position to see the play.  The old bridge position was that the real kid kicked the ball out of the keepers hand right before the collision.  I couldn’t see it from the view I had so I won’t give an opinion either way—I would have just said play on.  The PK was the difference in the game.  No kicking babies or eating pizzas—Although points for a funny post. I did hear parents from both sides complain about the refs lack of mobility

Anonymous said...

The difference in the game was Real actually play soccer.

That's a shame a bad call from the ref cost you the game. Never mind you couldn't mount an attack or actually possess the ball. Those bad refs!

Anonymous said...

That ref attempted but failed. He did cost the game. It happens.

Anonymous said...

Yes always laughable when " the ref. cost us the game"
refs make bad or miss calls every day at all levels,just part of the game.
Hey Real parents, how did you see the call?

It doesn't matter the game is over and so is the tournament. Real won and beat two quality teams in the process. Not a tournament loaded with top teams but still had to beat two pretty good teams. They came back from 1-0 deficits against Rush and in the final against ISA.

To straighten out a few posts on here the last few days:

PA Rush did not have 5 or 8 starters missing or whatever the story is now. They did however have two of their better players missing as confirmed by one of their parents. I'm sure that had an effect on them if true. In fairness though, Real played their game against PA Rush with 12 players so that's pretty much a wash.

The way Real and IGFA beat Rush, I'm not sure it would have mattered who was there or not.

PA Rush and Viper FC had cordial fans and coaches. Old Bridge had 3 coaches that scream their heads off all game, including talking about the opposing players and trashing them. SOME of their parents are just as out of control but some are also very nice.

The pk was a no-brainer call. Real girl dribbling in, OB keeper wipes her out, easy call. Of course the Real patents are going to react, who doesn't in that situation?

In reality, Real put tons of pressure on OB with OB making an occasional counter attack. I agree with the OB parent that the fact there was only one ref played a factor in the game getting out of control. The guy was probably on his 6th or 7th game with no linesman to help. Had there been linesman, at least 1 of the OB coaches would have been tossed.

IGFA must have just had a stinker against ISA. They were no doubt a better team. We were in shock when learned we were playing ISA and not IGFA in the finals.

All of the top clubs can say whatever you want, our kids played who was on their schedule and beat them all. The "little guys" got a shot to be top dogs for a weekend and the kids loved it. From what I can tell the earth is still on it's axis and were all still breathing today. Can't be that bad can it?

Anonymous said...

6:25 - how did the OB coaches trash opposing players? Like what comments were made?

I'm interested to know the type of people these coaches are.

Anonymous said...

Not going there. I know it makes it more "juicy" for the National Enquirer readers of this blog but it's not important. What's important is the OB soccer club doing something about it.

We have heard some of our girls talk about this site so there's no way we're going there with details. If people really don't think the kids go on this site, you're sadly mistaken. Maybe you should consider what your daughter would think of you before you type and hit send, or how you act at games.

OB Coach is the VP of travel at OB soccer club. That's how he gets away with it. What a joke. Horrible human being.

Sad when there people involved in youth sports that don't set a positive example not only for themselves, their families & players but the club they represent. Sad that this allowed to continue. What does it day about a club & the parents for that matter that would allow this to be their image? Never seen them play but heard about the coach or coaches & it was never positive. There are a lot if classy coaches in this age group so at least 1 bad apple won't spoil the bunch.

Anonymous said...

real parent here; everybody around the fields from different teams were nice only with OB we had some issues. Coaches were very angry and nasty during the entire game and i think it effected the parents.
ISA was a good team , we were surprised that IGFA was not in the final as we saw them playing before and they were a better team in my opinion. Anyway their coach came over after our final and complimented the girls and our coach as well as some of us parents. i saw all coaches being very classy and friendly with each other , PA rush and ISA as well, the only ones that were really bad were OB coaches, the way they present themselves is kind of scary to be honest.i agree that with three refs one of the coaches from OB would have been red carded.
good weekend for our team and happy for our girls.

Predictions for NJ team flights for Spirit assuming 12 teams per flight.
Top flight:
SJEB, Brick and maybe Copa since they made NPL playoffs even if by default
Second:
REAL, maybe Holmdel and maybe GFA but I doubt it
Third:
Freehold, NJ Rush, maybe Jackson
Fourth or lower:
Wildcats, Wall, watchung and Stronghold.
Last:
PDA rec team and all the other nj entries.

Anonymous said...

Accepted at FC Stars:
http://www.starsofma.org/FCStarsTournaments/StarsCup/826759.html
Brick, Sta, Hornets, Stallions, Crush, Match Fit x 2 and TSF.
Thought TRIC would be there. Think they did last year and not at Spirit. Interesting.

By the way - Splash and Madrid probably aren't there because they are both at Eclipse next weekend. I think Madrid is way over their heads, but as a NJ supporter I genuinely wish them both the best of luck.

No brackets yet. But there are a lot of very good teams that will be playing that weekend. It should be a very good event.

Can't wait to read the predictions that will be posted on this site.

Personally I will back the NJ teams, with the exception of a few, but I like to keep those thoughts as my own.

Thought that all U14 games will be at the same location. that is the way they ran it in past years.

For those that will be there good luck! Hope you enjoy watching your daughters compete and hopefully be successful.

There only two teams from NJ that have a shot in top bracket good luck to them

Why don't we all just be quiet and support all NJ teams in Spirit and FC Stars. It's about time we got behind our teams together rather than bash them.

Not exactly true only team kicked out of ECNL ever was Va Rushthis year. FSA and Soccer+ merged and FSA took the ECNL designation apparently.

I thought a NYE team was kicked out.

Appears to be more like a hostile takeover as opposed to a merger. Either way, it's the right thing from a competitive standpoint. Soccer+ = awful, FSA = very competitive. Everybody wins.

Stallions lost 5-1 to world class. Talk about a long way to go. That's embarrassing.

Anonymous said...

Stallions were out classed in that game and i am sure the Coach (S.C.) laid into them pretty good as the rest of the games were pretty close. Looks like they will heavily rely on the core of americans to a bulk of the workload until the rest of the original team gets up to speed

Anonymous said...

Now pretty close is acceptable? It about wins and losses.

Anonymous said...

cant tell if you are trying to stir the pot or not, but usually I would agree that pretty close is not good enough and it is about wins and losses, for those that think different as we go into U14...playing to develop is over it is about wins and losses.
this 1 day tournament was nothing more than getting the girls together after summer lay off. MF had close to 25 on their bench and half the girls guesting have no intention of joining the team. Bucks, WC and Stallion all have new girls on the squad looking to see where they fit within the team.

Fourth has Marlton, Vernon, watching and PDA rec team spread across the four with wall, rage, mercer and rush south in the fifth.

2:39 do not start. You just want to create trouble as usual. GFA is not in the top bracket an nobody is expecting them to be. Whatever bracket they will end up it will be ok. So if you want to start trouble pick somebody else. As for freehold , I do not care so if they put them up there , good for them . Whatever the bracket I hope that NJ teams will do well and that all the girls will be playing gods games and will go through the tournament without injuries. By the way I know that next you are going to answer to your comment with another one to start additional trouble. So I suggest you stop already

Good games not gods games lol ( or maybe they will be gods games lol)

3:05 it was actually a genuine question. GFA is the better team, and had a much better U13 year than Freehold. Just wondering how FH make it in there.

Anonymous said...

2:31 PM - ECNL sounds like a pretty good place to "hide" if you are able to play PDA, MF, World Class, FC Bucks, FC Stars, CFC, Penn Fusion, FC Delco......on a regular basis. These teams would beat most of the so called top NJ teams on a regular basis if they played them on a regular basis. Training 2X per week and playing quality opponents on a regular basis sounds like a good thing. They will continue to get stronger as the top kids migrate to the clubs in each state. Over training and playing meaningless games amounts to nothing.

4:28 true but not entirely, the won 2:0. If they put the wrong score and didnt fix is not important but if you want to get it right the score is 2:0. With that said ISA should be higher but if you look at single games then you'll never be able to make the brackets. One game doesn't determine the bracket .

You can see they split the states up as even as they could.There should be great competition in all flights.Lots of points to be had!

Cmon the mf team last season was never competitive with the top teams, yes this season's team maybe better time will tell. Again not from mf training but from "acquiring" top players trained elsewhere replacing players trained by mf. Make one of the top town teams part of this league and they would "acquire" the same kids and will have similar results for less $$. It would make a nice experiment. Dont worry at u16 the top players not currently in this league will move in and replace your daughters.

NJ road kill by flight:
Flight 1 GFA
Flight 2 Freehold (even in a weak bracket)
Flight 3 all but Rush (they got a gift bracket)
Flight 4 all NJ teams will have bad weekend

Could be a tough day for some NJ, but Barons, Real and Rush will look good where they were placed. Could see Barons, Real and Rush in their flight finals. Brick and Copa fall short. Stronghold and Holmdel really not a contenders but shouldn't get embarrassed. Brick is a toss up how they fare - I think they will fall short.

Anyone else have opinions?

Overall, the level of competition is not as high as expected. Where's the rest of the premier league teams? Where's breakers or nefc? Stars must be drawing teams away. No NE teams at all this year. Only challenge to Nj is developing ECNL squads who are trying to position new players. Should play out well for NJ squads especially how spread out they are - quite a few weak brackets.

glad MF added some new talent. They needed it for sure. That current crop that they trained for three years was not cutting it. Maybe some well trained new blood will help. Typical MF though. Bring in talent already trained and say you developed it.

Anonymous said...

Learned that technique from PDA. The D stands for delusional if you think they develop. That's the plan for ECNL and NPL - draw the talent to the exclusionary league to promote the business model.
They claim they are trying to make ECNL free with corporate sponsorship, but it will just be funded by the rest of US Club teams if they try it.

7:55 - Stars is the week after. Maybe some teams just wanted another week of training before stepping on the field for the new season.

USYSA has Stallion listed in National league, how is this possible? Use his U17 Dynamite team as leverage? Embarrassing for that league. Stallions 5th in Colonial league last year, added Americans but nothing to support their inclusion in that league. Joke

Anonymous said...

ODP in the past accepted the best of the best (for the most part); too many parents cried their star did not make it. So ECNL /NPL saw a business opportunity and made a league for these crying parents. Idea: Let’s make it exclusive.. so parents will always believe their kid is a top player. Oh yeah, they will pay big $$ for this illusion. In turned actually watering down ODP and their own ECNL /NPL leagues. So now instead of the best of the best playing & developing with each other, we have the best with some very good/players playing with each other. This will hurt USA overall development and all for a buck; not for the top kids best interest. I feel bad for all the kids who were given false promises when they get passed at u16 for the actual top players; again just to make a buck.

10:17 Non ECNL Team tuitions are around 2k plus another 1.5k for ODP - I don't think ECNL/NPL tuition is at 3.5k.

Non ECNL teams travel to Jefferson, Disney, Delco, Bethesda - so there is travel and overnight stays for the Non-ECNL teams as well.

ECNL/NPL is not closed to players. If a player has the goods they will make a team. The leagues are closed to Individual Teams as It should be. Why do Individual teams want in if everything is supposed to be about development and not results?

The reason we don't have the best of the best playing each other is because we have to much hate. We have a league for ODP type players to play in all year round. All they have to do is tryout and they are in if they are good. Very simple, the best playing against each other at training and on the weekends in games. This would help US soccer as our u20's were handed a 2-0 loss to Germany yesterday.

There is no reason to be sad for the players being replaced. All they can do is tryout for a team they don't control who will be at tryouts later. If the better players come along isn't that the name of the game - no loyalty - just skills.

Anonymous said...

ECNL closed system restricting individual teams is definitely not in the best interest of the girsl it Most definitely IS in the best interest of all those whose pockets are being lined as a result. Until parents wake up and demand change this process will continue .
The pro/ rel system is the ONLY fair,system.

Anonymous said...

Most of you sound as if you and your kid are afraid of competition. If your kid really wants to or is capable of playing college soccer they will have to deal with large rosters and coaches looking for ways to add stronger players as soon as they arrive. This is reality. Small rosters and having your kid play with all her friends is a thing of the past. The top teams will / should have 18-24 kids and they will have to fight each week to dress for games. If your kid is good enough this should not be an issue. Paying your tuition and buying your kid a new pair of cleats should not amount to playing time.

Brick Fury still overrated.

Added some new players from NJ Force, but they will be brought down by that coaches style of play. Team has always had athlete's but don't seem to hold unto the good soccer players. They are from NJ so will wish them well in the first two tourney's. Let's see if the new players can have the positive effect on style of play.

Anonymous said...

2;45 is spot on. Sports are a competition. Most are going into 8th or 9th grade and should understand what it means to earn something. Best kids will play going forward on top teams. This is obviously not the environment for all. Small rosters and equal playing time will not work for top teams. Injuries will happen and the competitive environment will make good players better.

Brick comment is funny as they have lost 2 players to GFA which is a backwards move & the one player has been on 4 different teams since leaving after U-10 so not sure where you get your facts. Core has been the same since U-8 & have played short handed due to injuries the past year & half & still compete so surely you' re just a hater.

And you just the coach! You are so obvious....What a shame....or sham you are

We have played Brick many times over the years & never did I think they were a team full of athletes. They have a handful of skilled players mixed in with average at best players & no goaltending to speak of so I give them tons if credit competing against the top teams with depth & being always in the game. Now with what sounds like some added better players I'm interested to see what they can do with talent.

Anonymous said...

Random Brick comment clearly smells of teams with an agenda who always gets mentioned on here as not a very good team. Comment listing Brick as athletes smells like Freehold comment. You connect the dots. Why we feel the need to bash due to jealousy us actually embarrassing to yourself & the team you represent. I too riot for all the NJ teams except when they play our team. I too would compliment Brick & name our team but then that would lead to attacks on our team even though we don't discuss anyone else.

Anonymous said...



Why is Brick on the defensive, they always compete, the comment seemed to be about the style of play and that they had athletes. Who cares if someone has this opinion? Unless it struck a cord with you.....................

I'm sure all of the coaches connections will help them as they look to be seen by college coaches.....................

Well said teams that have had success shouldn't care about what others who are most likely jealous day. Nobody gets attacked more then PDA & do you think it maters to them? People will always attack so let them just be miserable as everyone knows who does well & who doesn't do a good job.

If one player makes such a difference, you must be a very weak team. Literally, team to beat.

Prediction MF won't win a game @ FC Stars remember you heard it here 1st. Too many cast offs & people who believe their daughter is the next coming & with 30 players rostered parents who will cause problems when their kid isn't rostered. Let the in fighting begin.

9:42pm -- It is BS ... BUT as a strategy for completing the National League application and selling the team's resume, it's not a bad tactic. And, if that's what it is, it was successful compared to whatever other applications they reviewed. U14 is the only division with so many "open" spots selected from applications, so they'll have to earn their way back in for future years.

Stallions are looking at burning out those kids. If they do the USYS national league, EDP, NPL,are headed to FC Stars tourney, WAGS tourney, propbably have state cup also.

This team will be a nightmare to schedule games with or worse reschedule and make up a game.

Funny thing about Stallions is last years team thought they were going to have SC coaching them. He was to busy with his older girls. He is a good salesman lets see if he steps up this year and shows up to any of the games.

MF is not combined ECNL and NPL roster. There are 30 rostered to each of them. If you are not paying, why do you care.
Stallions are definitely risking injury from overworking their players. If your daughter isn't at risk, why do you care?
People need to admit they criticize these teams and programs out of jealousy. Your team didn't get selected for the National League - boo hoo! Move on and worry about your own team and schedule.
Your daughter isn't a starter on an elite and exclusionary team. Boo hoo! Move on and realize she's not ready - worry about how your game day roster gets filled and trained.

Anonymous said...

10:57am - Americans won State Cup, did well in Premier League and played in Regionals, but did not earn an automatic berth to National League. The speculation is that Stallions used Americans resume (because 10 of those players are there) to beef up their National League application and gain acceptance.

Anonymous said...

Trust me no jealousy here. I was actually considering moving my daughter to one of the ECNL teams next year where she would no doubt make the team and fare pretty well. I had NO IDEA they would roster this Ammount of players. If this roster size is the wave of the future we will stay put.

Anonymous said...

Ok so good for the Stallions and good luck trying to gel quick enough to compete. Hope they do and so should you - unless of course you are just mad your team wasn't selected. Most likely they wouldn't have been regardless of the Stallions.

Second. So good for you that you decided not to go ECNL. Now that you sold yourself a good reason - I mean the real reason - she isn't on an ECNL team we should all be grateful you are protecting us as well. Be real.

Famous last words: “If your daughter is good enough roster size should not be an issue.”

As you daughter is only playing 20% every other 2-3 ECNL games

Core 8 play 90% time, 9-15 60%, 16-21 rotate for the balance; 22-30 pipe dream of playing

16-30 will play on the non-ECNL team, but will pay to support the main ECNL. If you are 1-15 maybe its worth it?,
if not 1-15 why waste your time/money other 2nd team (which the club does not about) as there are much more competitive teams out there. Good luck

Anonymous said...

Exactly.
Like I said - people need to admit there is a reason they obsess about other teams and then move on.
Self awareness leads to growth. Worry about what you can control - the situation immediately around your daughter. Accept it or find something else, but stop critiquing or criticizing others in the meantime. It's unhealthy and rooted in some ugliness you need to acknowledge.

Anonymous said...

Maybe some do obsess.. Not my game. I like the competition the ECNl has. Wanted to bring my daughter there next . She's very good. Roster size of 30 tells me everything I need to know about the operation. Not about the girls at all. Youth soccer on the girls side has become very disheartening,

Anonymous said...

Why do people speak without knowledge. It is obvious nobody understands what the whole ECNL model is about. Yes, many clubs and so called academies exploit stupid parents and even some NPL teams are going too far with rosters, but research before you say stupid things.
ECNL is the first realistic attempt to create academies on the girls side - there are none for those that think they exist by the way.
The fact that the league has survived and seems to be getting stronger has attracted the interest of potential sponsors and perhaps some (and eventually most) costs can be offset in the future to make it more universally accessible.
The boys academies run up to 36 on their rosters and are a proven system. If you had a son and he was offered an academy slot, would you say "no thanks - there's too many kids there"? If so, you are clueless.
Stop criticizing or get on board for the future of the game for our granddaughters if not our daughters. The current system is broken on the girls side.
Some scammers and greedy charlatans fool a lot of people, but ECNL is here to stay and large rosters are the proven model - like it or not.
For the record, my daughter is not on an ECNL club because we cannot commit to the travel. Not even sure she's good enough anyway, but I recognize that's the path for those that want the highest exposure and most opportunities - look at the number of ECNL grads on the national squads and watch as it soon becomes just about every player on those teams and the majority of women's league teams.

Anonymous said...

There is one HUGE difference. The boys system is FREE. Who wouldn't accept an offer for free everything. The girls is pay to play and is exclusionary. You want academies like the boys do? Offer it for free ....spare me the corporate sponsorship for the girls ..the womens leagues are barely afloat. It's all about money ...and they are using delusional parents to line thier pockets.

THIS!!!! YES!! someone gets it!

I I was responding to the previous poster's point that in Spain they have a Pyramid, but the Pyramid is based on merit. And what I said is that if they do not continue to develop players and do not play well at the top of the Pyramid, then the Spanish Club will not remain at the top of the pyramid very long. I made no judgement as to whether we develop kids at the top of the pyramid in the US. My point with the US model is that we are diminishing our player pool very early. It is so easy, for people to say well it is open tryouts and anyone can go to an ECNL tryout, true but there are more than 50 highly skilled players in NJ as an example and the avenues for the group after 50 are getting reduced. Say for example Freehold develops a Nationally Competitive team by U-13 and PDA has a U-13 team that is moving into the ECNl. The answer I'm hearing on this blog is break-up a team that is nationally competitive so the kids can tryout for ECNL where few spots are probably available so that they can play for an ECNL team. Is that really what we want out of soccer. A team that emerges as highly competitive should have avenues and rather than opening up those avenues, we are closing them down. On the other hand if the U-14 team at PDA goes 0-14 and are not competitive they still remain at the elite level with little consequence.

Anonymous said...

4:32 I agree with you 100%

4:39 Why is that? The Boys side is USSF backed, the ECNL is no there yet. SO in other words are you saying the USSF only cares about the Boys and is using the Girls to offset those fees? The ECNL has been around 5 years and is attempting to right a wrong on the girls side. So if your kid went to ODP tryouts and she was offered a roster spot (1 of 24) you would turn it down?

5:01 so what better for those 50+ girls in NJ to go down another avenue or to work harder and take a spot from one the first 50? We should have one league for the elite - prodigy kids to develop our NTs. Everything else can be what ever avenue for kids to get into schools.

The DA develops players for the Boys MNT
ECNL wants to develop girls for the WNT.

No one cares if Freehold plays for a national title except for the coach those kids and family members who accomplish that great title. But if one of those players have a shot at playing for the NT - I think they are missing the boat by not moving over to ECNL.

Just my 2 cents and I obviously don't get it.

Red Bulls- free including travel, yes sign my kid up!

NJSA04/CedarStars or PDA or MF- pay $3-4K + travel (total apprx $5-8K/yr), 30 kids, if he was 1-11 maybe, otherwise not.

The point is that 99.9 % of the kids that leave those good teams have absolutely NO SHOT of the national team. That's when the unscrupulous find the weak minded - delusional ....and a shaky marriage is made.

Do parents in the ECNL really believe that "all" the top players are in this league and that the other leagues do not have any top players? Like 1-3 on SJEB, Brick, Freehold, GFA, COPA, etc. are not better than 4-30 in MF?

"We should have one league for the elite"

A New Jersey Super League, cut regionally -

so that no deserving player need travel more than 40 minutes or so each way for a practice.

All games (20) in New Jersey.

Teams could then enter tournaments as they see fit.

Nice idea. But not the current model.

NPL has cut down the travel this year. I dont know if ECNL can do this - or has.....

I think whet we need to stay away from is "this league is better......", especially seeing that there are just TWO teams in the league from Jersey - and we know not all the top talent opts for that avenue.

Anonymous said...

A lot of nice debate , but really using the boys side
as a "proven" model is also just as laughable. For a country this size, why have so many of the players on MNT been developed outside this country. Proves what ways to go both sides

How many Americans have developed enough to play on European teams though?

Bottom line is if your daughter has good ability(I think you would know by now) then if she wants to have a chance to play D1 then she needs to play ECNL period. No guarantees but a chance. Anywhere else it becomes much harder.

Anonymous said...

Totally disagree with the above.. Play on a high level team. Play in high level tournaments and most of all, (some teams do this for you -our non ECNL team does) set up a profile and promote,your daughter. Attend the camps of universities she becomes interested in. Contact coaches .d1 is attainable for all talented athletes, given the right circumstances. If you think ECNL waves a magic wand and a Di scholarship becomes available. Sadly mistaken.

"How many Americans have developed enough to play on European teams though?"

Most if not all the u14 Girls playing on Top teams that can ball and are dual citizens would have a great chance to make another NT, Most countries don't have that many girls registered to play. Just like the Italians do with Baseball. They always have a team in the Olympics, do they even have a Baseball league in Italy? If a kid was good and they had a chance to play internationally, the USWNT is not the only way to go for some kids.

Just like a Jersey Elite league would fail. When we talk ECNL think DA and think Girls playing for the NT. To me that's who should be playing in that league so we can develop great players for our NT.

"Do parents in the ECNL really believe that "all" the top players are in this league and that the other leagues do not have any top players? Like 1-3 on SJEB, Brick, Freehold, GFA, COPA, etc. are not better than 4-30 in MF?" NO - I don't believe that for a second. But I do believe all the top players in the country should play in one league instead of doing ODP. ECNL should be made up of our ODP players and the our ODP players should play other ODP players every week while they train 2/3 times a week. This is what the ECNL can provide if Parents/Coaches stop trying to compare their kid's team to these clubs. If your kid i a top talent and has ever played in ODP/TIP/PDP/id2 then they should be playing in ECNL. I could care less if the team name is MF or PDA - who cares what the team name is as long as the kids train and play together.

Anonymous said...

simple answer, yes/no?

agree 1 league under the state name (state pride), practice 1/week @ not a money maker; not for profit..

team is selected by state Pro/College D1 team coach/assistant. These coached are not the state team coach who volunteer their time (and have a chance to ID) during tryouts

increase ALL YS card fees by $5-10/player & minimal tryout fee $50 application to pay for it, teams fund raise/corporate sponsorship to cover uniform & trip costs so all players have the opportunity,

states play in regional tourney playing each other 2x (1 game Sat/1 game Sun) at central location throughout the year, winner moves to a national tourney for the national title

similar to world cup, player practice/play with their national team along with their Club team, and yes the may miss a club game which is ok (coaches must accept) as this is for development.

"They have a handful of skilled players mixed in with average at best players & no goaltending to speak of so I give them tons if credit competing against the top teams with depth & being always in the game. Now with what sounds like some added better players I'm interested to see what they can do with talent."

You've obviously got no clue as to what you're talking about. Brick is one of the best defensive teams out there including the goalie. They can't score goals. It's that simple. They might possibly fair better with the newly added players.

Anonymous said...

You either have no clue about Brick or your the keepers parent. Played them many times over the years & they do play very good overall team defense from top to in the back but their goal tending had always let them down. At this level you won't score a lot & having to compensate for poor net minding is why their midfield stays back so much. With a better keeper I'm sure Brick would play a more wide open attacking game. Maybe with the new players they can push more players up but the risk always is they give up that 1 or 2 bad goals & it's hard to recover which is why the tie a lot. Good enough to win but afraid to leave it in the hands of their keeper. Our coach talks highly of their coach & team but always says out any shot on goal as that is their weakest part of their team.

Anonymous said...

Getting ready to go to work & haven't been on a while & some good debates about the current state if youth sports & the direction it appears it's going in then I see a random post about Brick @ 2 in the morning answering a random statement made a while back which clearly sounds like the keepers parent. People like that give teams a bad rap & cause people to attack the teams which I'm sure the coaches wouldn't appreciate. We to have played Brick many times over the years & the above is very accurate. I've played most of my life & still do & coached my older children over the years so I feel like I have an idea if what I'm watching & you can tell how afraid the Brick coaches are about their goal tending over the years as not only against us but I have seen them in other games at tournaments & they have given up some of the weakest goals you will see at that level. They don't give up many shots as their midfielders get back & outside backs turn the ball outside & up field pretty well but those 1 or 2 shots they may give up have a very high success rate if going in as their keeper is out if position most times & comes out when there is no need & stays on the line when she should. Why haven't they gotten a keeper coach to help I don't know but I think their offense is fine if they can keep more players up but that would mean relying on the keeper more which doesn't look like they are ready to. There are a lot if very good goaltending in this she group which is surprising compared to other age groups & each team as their own weaknesses just like my youngest team but that is clearly Brick's issue but since everyone is saying they picked up players it will be interesting to see if they open up the attack. Other subjects like MF & roster size have been good back & forth other then the comments attacking saying your kid most not be good enough. My son played for the Red Bulk Academy & he didn't always play but it's easier to take there them somewhere you are paying $3-$6,000 at. Would like to see them have a real girls academy but I don't see it happening with all this money to be made. Everyone have a good day.

Anonymous said...

Everyone has opinions, and they, like most of you are assholes. Again, this site is allowing players to personally be called out. These are 13 year old girls and they do read this forum. If you look back through Bricks recent history (and even further) they have tied most games 1-0, 0-0, etc. How any of you that claim to be knowledgeable about the sport can put blame on one person is amazing. Number of shots are irrelevant. If a team gets 2 shots the whole game and both are quality shots from inside the 18, the goalie is to blame? I played goalie as a child and it's a thankless position. You should all be ashamed. The ball has to get by 10 other girls before it hits the back of the net. Most of your precious ones don't and will never have the athleticism, dedication, talent, and guts to play the position. keep that in mind as you try to criticize.

Anonymous said...

My daughters team has also played them for years, and offense is their main problem. No doubt. They don't lose and tie for any other reason than not shooting and missing wide open nets and chances. Ask their coach. Ask him about the wide open net that was missed at the end of the game against my daughters team that cost them a trip to the finals (last tournament). My 2 cents. Anyone playing this weekend, enjoy the games!

Funny how everything works lol " my daughter played them... Ask the coach... Our coach has great respect for their coach..." all this comments are basically one guy that wrote something about Brick and then either the coach or brick parents answer with different messages.
