They know height and weight because the latest jacka$$ on this blog posted it about their kid! It is the future D1 current town team kid.

Please tell us what team your kid plays for, so we can judge for ourselves.

I'm glad this conversation is out in the open.....maybe it will bring to light some constructive advice to a lot of parents out there that our daughers should prune themsevles away from people/coaches/relationships which are negative and self-serving....it's never okay for a an injured player to be kept in a game knowing that the player is injured, knowing that the player requested to come out and ignoring the player's requests for the sake of winning a game.

Not my daughter, not anyone's daughter......

As parents we all want our kids to have more and achieve more than we did. Yes, you have to push through adversity and comfort levels to achieve goals; but is not okay for women/girls to be in any relationship that indicates to them that it's okay to stay when they are not fully supported by their coach. It's not okay for a player to play on a team if the coach doesn't believe in the player's abilities. It's not okay to tell the player or parent anything to keep the player on the roster to keep it full. As a coach you have a responsibility to the team as well as to the player....how can a coach call himself/herself a good coach if he uses a player to benefit a team at the player's expense?

Also, by keeping an injured player in entire game plus overtime and not taking that player out you send a message to all the other players that it doesn't matter that you're injured I'm still going to play you whether you like it not......and that, my friend, is why a team won't succeed....they realize in that one instance that they don't really matter....what matters to the coach is winning the game and that's it.

So you see it's not okay for our duaghters to be in any relationship where they are not supported. Nobody wants to work with, be associated with or play for a coach who doesn't think they're good.....after all that's only one person's opinion.

I'm not a coach but the best teams around, regardless of the sport or level the coach believes that every single player is great. Why would a player want to be on a team or play for a coach who doesn't think they're good...you defeat the team before the game even starts....but you probably know that already.....right?

High comedy on this blog as always....

Players will always come an go, it is just the way of competitive youth soccer...The concentration of a lot of competitive teams in NJ lends itself to this movement....someone earlier stated it correctly when they said, players mover for different reasons, playtime (lack of), don't like another player or a coach plus numerous other reasons....

So a player from your team is leaving, more than likely your team will be better in the end, usually that player is not as good as her mom or dad may think she is, perhaps she is not coachable, perhaps she is condescending to her teammates, but in the end, no one really cares. It only becomes an issue when multiple players choose to leave a team and not tell the coach or manager. And the team was put at risk or may fold, when that could have been avoided.

One player never makes or breaks a team...let be honest.

And my guess is that the parent of the player, more often than not, is the miserable parent on the sideline that never has anything positive to say, know everything, but never has played the game....and more thank likely never was successful at any sport while growing up....you know who you are.....So just move your daughter to where you see fit and be done with it...in the end no one really cares...and in most circumstances those teams will be better without your negative tones...I'm sure all of your daughters teammates will wish her well! Because they care about her...But they could give a cr@#p about you and are happy you will not be at the games anymore....

Anonymous said...

To 10:36 post....

It's amazing really....how would know if her teammates care about this player? Oh, and by the way, you are wrong yet again. I'm not the one who is negative on the sidelines....the negative ones are the ones who are smiling at you when the game is over but are critizing you during the game....when you're sitting on the bench and you can't hear what's being said about you....you know...the so called parents who have been with you for a long time...they may be drinking the KookAid now; but I don't think they will be asking for refills next year........

The bottom line is it is your daughter. You are responsible for her well being. You are responsible for her success and failures. The coaches that come on here and tell parents what they should do with their child are the ones where the game has passed them by. As the girls get ready for high school everything begins to change. Their teammates have different goals, turn to different sports or have other interests outside sports. I believe you need to surround your daughter with like minded players to keep her interested and focused on individual training. That's the key to development. Not some guy who played soccer in the 80's. So much has changed since then but these coaches still coach the same way their college coach did when they wore shorts no man should ever wear.

To all those seeking better teams for their child: best of luck, keep working with her in your backyard and remember if it's about fun, winning is a lot more fun than losing. Develop her skills at home and show them off on a team that wins more than they lose at a level that pushes her comfort zone.

As long as her parents are involved and support her in a positive way she will appreciate the journey regardless of the outcome and who has the greenest grass.

Thanks for a great response....sounds like your perspective is a coach rather than a parent and a coach that seems to care about the development of the player....it's refreshing to hear.

You know it's funny....you will get this and I can tell by your response: if a coach focuses on making each player stronger and better then the team elevates to a new level. If a coach denies a player other opportunities to better they're playing abilities you would think they would be smart enough to realize if I have players who want to pursue extra programs to make them better players and still stay on the same team then it's a win/win for the player and the team. I'm not a coach but you cannot develop a great team without focusing on making each and every player better....if you take care of the details the bigger things fall into place.

Anonymous said...


10:48

you sound like a good parent. And I'm sure people will appreciate your perspective. Any coach at any level should want what is best for each individual player. Whether that is for the player to continue playing on her current team or support her efforts to move to another team at a higher level.

That being stated, you probably lost a lot of people when you went off on your coach. We have no idea how long your daughter has been involved with this team? It could be less than a year, two or three years or more. If it is the latter, then why would you bash that person/persons. Haven't they played a major role in the development your daughter to a point where she may be able to get to the next level?
Shouldn't you be happy about that fact?
You seem kind of bitter...don't understand why people on this blog personalize their situations? I guess it makes you feel better? But most on here speak in general terms. Except when they speak about a specific game.
Oh and by the way...To college coaches...High school soccer is not relevant...But it is relevant to players...If the girls programs (the top ones) go the route of boys academy programs,and if your daughter is that good she will not be playing high school soccer. If she does, she will more than likely be prone to injury, HS soccer is all about athletic ability and physical game not soccer skills. No possession mostly kick and run. Oh and good luck with HS coaches...But then again you can always send your daughter to a different school....

What coach wouldn't want their player to pursue outside programs that would make them better. Assuming you are referring to training programs.?

You sound defensive and it is obvious that you have never played the game. If your goal is HS soccer, just focus on speed and strength. You don't need soccer skills to play HS soccer.

Anonymous said...

I wasn't bashing my coach....why would my coach be on here and secondarily, how would I know my coach is on here if this is anonymous????? I was talking about "any" coach....if it struck a cord in you....well then you have to reflect on your own actions.

Second, I'm not bitter nor defensive...my original comment was in response to a parent stating his/her opinion on players leaving a team and why it's not good. I didn't expect; but I'm glad all the sub conversations. It's funny really we're adults and when we speak our mind and express an opinion that's not favorable or what the majority doesn't want to hear it's bashing...wow didn't realize there were so many people out there with thin skin.

To the poster who said their daughter was forced to play when injured then said later in their post they felt the coach didn't think the player was good. Why would the coach leave the injured player in the game if he didnt think she was good?

Freehold and NJX merger?

NJX losing 4 players to Wildcats. Freehold advertising for a goalie on NJ.COM and need more players. They both play the same kick and run style and love to have mom and dad on the bench. Sounds like a perfect dysfunctional match.

Wait I thought Brick was merging with Wildcats. Naw ..Brick daddy coach saw right thru that horror show over there and went baby blue.

I guess the big question is if the Widcats will now cut those couple girls he never let play or will they increase roster size to increase the bottom line - those girls can still pay and practice and come watch from the sidelines next year because only 18 suit up.

A lot if rumors this time if year which is fun to hear but stressful to all the teams mentioned. Who knows what is really going on at any team unless you're on that team & even then you might be left in the dark. Do believe Force being done but don't know about who is going where but Brick makes sense as does TRIC or Freehold if they can keep a team. Maybe they will go with either if their old coaches? Time will tell how this plays out but it's not very easy to keep a team together these days. Good luck to all hoping they all find a good home.

103. I hope there were enough girls at tryouts to keep a good team and RJ gets it right finally. If not, I wish you well - I don't wish bad for those 6 girls, but a nice case of food poisoning for those parents wouldn't be upsetting - let it loose from both ends please!

Anonymous said...



The Force situation is just a sad testament to what is wrong with youth soccer in NJ.

Let's just make the assumption that it is true that NJ Force Crush is done. (I don't know either way, not involved).

So from what this blog is rumored:

At least 6 to Brick, hummmm, that would either mean Brick will cut players loose or they will have a large roster.

Some to TRIC - FREEHOLD - ETC> ETC

Sounds like domino effect........

In the end, just hope each player lands somewhere that is a positive for their growth as a player.

It all sucks, bottom line....

NJ Wildcats roster a lot of players. If a player is not getting any playing time, then how could you ever fault a player who wants to leave a team? But kind of strange to see it happen mid year, but things happen....

Is the assistant at NJX the one who left the Jackson team in a mess last summer?

What happened to all of those players? I know of a couple that went to TRIC, but no idea on the others?

Anonymous said...

Not sure what goes on at NJ Force but 3 coaches in less than 2 years would scare me off too so not sure why anyone would blame parents for looking elsewhere for a more stable environment or better fit for their daughter. People don't have to agree with what other people do with their kids but not sure why there is the need to out them down for looking out for their kid? Keep things in perspective people some people will pay a lot of money because they believe that is what is necessary & others don't & neither is wrong if it makes sense for them & their daughter.

Anonymous said...

It's a shame that most of these town teams will be player diluted after the next 2 years. Teams like Freehold, NJX, Brick, Wall, etc...It is only a matter of time that these players/parents will want to play for Academy level teams and better exposure for college showcases and recruiting. Believe me when I say this thatno college coach knows most of the town teams when going to watch games or showcases. They do know and respect the Academy teams like PDA, MFA, NJSA, NJ Wildcats, as these are proven clubs that have produced college level players which all the college coaches know these DOC's and what type of player they will become due to the program and training/competition. Just my feedback from going through this with our older child

Anonymous said...

Yes, Don't blame her either. I just hope they play her. Some coaches promise a lot just to get players and also thinking they will screw up another team..

Anonymous said...

We just played NJ Wildcats and they have 17 players currently from what I saw on the bench and also leverage their youunger team as well for player development in some games. We did hear at the game that 3-4 NJX players are looking at them come next year including one of their main forwards as LC daughter took her position and plays the whole game! (shocker). I would assume just like every team, some players would be added and some let go as well. This is happening with our team as well.

Anonymous said...

Please spare me the Wildcats mentioned in same breath as PDA. There are an abundance of small club and town teams at the higher age groups (u-15/u-18) playing high level soccer in the top 10 in this state aIone, Hope all those teams are around at u-17 .... much better for the game. The big roster , big club era will fall-like the Roman Empire.

Not sure why the Wildcats get extra players after the starting 11 since the rest are treated like garbage. It does not matter how well they play, they are never treated with dignity.

What a shame to be part of this group since they will never be successful as long as the top 11 are the only players that matter.

Well that makes it ok then. As long as PDA continues to win or get wildcard in every ECNL age group then maybe the money spent is worth it to some. What has wildcats done specific to the current ownership - not inherited.

Anonymous said...

What coach would play their own daughter the whole game? That would just create a lot of animosity. Taking the coach's kid out along with most of the other starters for a short rest creates time for the bench players on the field and keeps your bench happier... And we all know that we need bench strength at this age.. too many injuries. Seriously, what coach would be stupid? I really have a hard time believing that post is true.

Anonymous said...

Yes, money well spent for the players 11-15 possible. How about the rest of the non-roster 10-15players? PDA/MFA are no different and if people on this blog agree with that as well, you are all crazy parents as well...If your daughter on MFA/PDA is not the top 14 or 15 player on those rosters for ECNL/NPL, you are wasting your $$$ and hurting your daughters confidence, development, filled with false hopes!!

After all these years of being the most stable, top performing, cream of the crop, "town" team. Apparently people are finally starting to realize that maybe they should have tried going there before all the "academies". Long term success speaks for itself.

"Open your eyes people" is exactly what needs to happen here. Let's not forget the track record- was HC in Holmdel and left for Middletown. Holmdel team folded. Tried to breakup Middletown but had no power. Was thrown out of the club. Middletown team flourished and became NJX following year. Smell the sour connection? Now with Wildcats. Very easy to connect the dots...

This is good for some. There are teams that might be a few players away of competing at a high level. With teams breaking up or merging and players moving around it all works out.

How anyone from NJX can put down another coach when they have the Jackson coach on their sidelines is laughable!!! Just be quiet. Most likely true losing players because some on that team weren't happy with the coach being added so deal with it. Middletown's best player went to Wildcats so wouldn't be surprised if any more follow but there are much better options out there but I guess it's a step up from NJX?

EDP is a drive-able tournament from Brick. Maybe they don't want to spend more $$ for hotels and such. They already went to Jeff cup and needed hotels.

Maybe they want to keep the prices down per season with limited out of state tournaments.

People on this blog so interested in what other teams do & don't do begs the question do you people have a life if your own? Brick like other teams play 2-3 out if State tournaments a year most likely trying to save the money on hotels since they do a lot & EDP is very exspensive.

Anonymous said...

Understandable for a town team like Brick but not for a paid club team. Where does all that money go? ...and
What do they tell the parishioners ?

Force players at brick now!?

Sorry to call out Brick, was only trying to bring up the question, of overplay for u13 & u14 players, they risk injury and burnout. Only menitioned them because they were down to 12 players. Wanted to see if any others had thoughts on topic, in general

Anonymous said...

Injuries will happen during the next couple of years which is why you should carry a deep roster. 22-30 is insane but everyone should carry 18 & maybe have 15 by seasons end rather then carry 15 & have 12 left to try & compete. Just a thought.

Sometimes teams just go through a stretch where they are bit by the injury bug and others are bit by the basketball bug (Freehold).

Thought it was lacrosse, softball or track in Spring.

Injuries happen to all teams. Why do you think Brick has been successful from day 1? Hard work brings results.

Anonymous said...

Someone trying to get people to bite but I won't. Hard work does pay off but with the girls bodies changing they have an increased chance of injuries so playing too much or playing soccer, basketball & running track at the same time will increase the chances if back, ankle & foot issues. I know from experience so need to restore well like PDA with less games during the season.

This is someone not PDA whos team isn't in many tournaments and thats what they sell to the masses. but Yeah ...that's worked out really well for PDA not playing much ..they have moved far and away from the pack , huh.?

12-14 players sounds perfect all get much time= "happy parents,happy coach, happy players= happy team=success! (Success means more than w's & l's)"

Only reason teams carry more is to reduce fees, try to attract more players and get paid more $$ for same type of coaching in the end.=a business

Anonymous said...

Have you ever been on a team that tried to make it through a season with 14? We have and it is extremely nerve wracking and very tough on the middies especially when it's hot.

Anonymous said...

Agreed 16 healthy is great if they never get sick or hurt but how can you know? 18 is fine especially if 2 are keepers but 20+ is crazy!

Anonymous said...

Never heard a parent complain about too much time, im sure coaches would rather hear this over the reverse?

Anonymous said...

16 is more than enough. 18 TOPS. Over that ...RUN

Anonymous said...

Game time/#players should be the rule thru u15, u16 and above should be true rule once out you done for the half and all must play 10 min min/half (unless injuries). All kids pay so all should play until u16. Then we will see which coaches developed the team. Face it the kids like to win but its the parents & coaches who a crazy about u15 and younger games wl's. All this talk on this blog means nothing until u16. This blog is for entertainment only! If our bosses knew how much they pay us to be on this blog the s would hit the fan!

Anonymous said...

No I do not think once out you are out because a coach needs to be able to adjust or react as the game progresses. If the starters get a rest midway through they should be ok to go back in to try to go into the half strong or to finish with a rally. I do not believe in participation awards either. Earn your playtime and if your coach is too stupid to utilize fresh legs, maybe he should be benched.

Admin how do we post a picture so 5:24 can understand? We were talking u15 and lower "once out" is for u16 and above, big girl soccer and should be real.

Also what the difference between "participation awards" and you cashing the welfare checks each month? Both are given away...

Well, you're wrong. Injuries are more frequent due to the girls getting, bigger, faster, stronger, and more aggressive. NOT from a more active schedule. Sorry.

Actually their was a study that females that only play one sport are more susceptible to injury than other athletes. Also more injuries in modern times because children are growing up different, less time outside playing different sports, games, riding bikes etc....bodies don't develop the same...

Hard work at 10,11,12,13,14 shouldn't include 12 months straight of tournaments/games/training, you can't be that stupid. They need time to rest.

Just Soccer said...

The injuries that these age groups suffer comes from the fact that they're going through their 1st womanly developments. Some girls sooner then others...

-some gain weight
-some get taller
-some get stronger
-some get weaker
-some get faster
-some get slower

It happens to all of them and all of them handle it differently. Their bodies are so compromised at this stage of their development, that injuries are not only expected but inevitable.

^^ Well said! Also, I don't recall anyone saying anything about 12 months straight of training and/or games. Not even Brick does that.

P.S. No dog in this fight. LOL

11:20..What's your point? I mean really. You arrogant immature individual. This is Not what our daughters playing U13 soccer is about. It is your own issues and jealousy that are being put on to this blog behind an unknown name. It's horrible. All teams lose. All teams win. If those 13 year old girls stood in front of you would you mock their loss? Is that what you do when your daughter looses? Before or after you kick the dog? Ass.

"And what did you say about Freehold ?"

Still mediocre at best? Yeah, something like that. You make it sound like you beat a top team. get real.

Anonymous said...

So I guess PDA u14 girls in the fall didnt happen? The rumors of Brick going to PDA not true? Some players from Force going to Brick? Brick losing a couple?

Oh yeah said...

11:20 No dog in this fight?? Wow, and I thought you had a daughter that plays for Freehold or something weird like that. Now I see that you're just an overzealous fan, innocently supporting his/her team.

I can picture you now, sitting there in front of your computer waiting with bated breath for the scores to be announced, wearing your autographed Freehold United throwback jersey, surrounded by posters of your favorite players, while humming Freehold United's fight song between sips of your freshly squeezed Kool-Aid.

Thank goodness you're not just some parent bragging about his/her daughter's U13 soccer game, because that would've been creepy.

Wow someone is very sensative on the Freehold front. The only recent comment I saw was a reference to Freehold's basketball issue. That has been an issue for them since U11 so it is nothing new at all. Their coachs go out of their way to schedule, reschedule, or move games to avoid the basketball conflicts.

So whats wrong with that?

Wildcats won win an EDP game in top flight & lose 4-1 to Freehold yet you want to go there & pay money???? Wake up 2nd tier team at best even with the best player from Middletown on the team.

Anonymous said...

Better player from Middletown/NJX?? I believe she's still there!

Anonymous said...

Middletown player left with coach before they were NJX. She should have stayed since Wildcats are a little better but not worth paying for.

Boring. Freehold has been a competitive team since U11. NJ Wildcats are a competitive team as well. On any day one can beat the other like most U13G teams. Have you all lost your minds? You all take the bait, that is the funny part.

Freehold is heavily recruiting a lot of players as are many other teams. NJ Wildcats take players from other teams mid season. Only because they wanted to step away from their team, but IMHO that is just not right.

This time of year is always miserable in youth soccer. There should be a system developed where tryouts are held during a certain timeframe and that player movement can only happen during certain windows of time. I think that would take away from all of this bulls&^%t!

Why is there so much negativity? Should we all just appreciate the fact that our daughters are playing and competing at the highest level. Hopefully they continue to grow and learn each time they step onto the field, whether to train or for a game. Yes some may not be on the top team, but are working to get there, celebrate that fact!

I hope most of you know that this blog is for entertainment only! Seems like there are a few out there that like to try and stimulate you to react to negative statements about whatever topic they think may grab you. Some reactions are funny, some kind of sad, some positive, some defensive, and some people take it personally (that is when they get you).

It is just entertainment, comedy, just take it that way.

Most could careless about an EDP game played on a Tuesday night in May, with the exception of those that played the game, or had a daughter playing. Just don't pay attention to the others.

Why would anyone talk about a player?

Those who are the best at U13 will more than likely not be the best at u17, history proves that fact. Some much will change for each player over the next few years.

There are a lot of teams out there with a lot of talent.

stop stirring the pot & trying to justify your move away from force. prior force coach that was let go was a complete disgrace and those loyal to him, trying to make excuses trying to save face by
blaming others, Face it you was duped. perfect excuse to move away from good training and go for the win. Good luck with that
