congrats to Old Bridge! Where they in the top bracket at The Baltimore tourney? After the top bracket the level falls off a lot. And if they win the state cup at the second level it is still a state cup championship, just a lower level state cup. There is nothing wrong with owning that title. Just wish them well stop being idiots.

I don't think any of the crush players are looking at the stallions. Most did not like the doc when he was at crush. Also stallions are not doing that good that's why most of that team is looking to leave. A few already did.

Anonymous said...

Actually it's the opposite situation at the Stallions. Team is in unity and will only strengthen. Thanks anyway for your kind support.

Anonymous said...

Old Bridge, come on, you dont really mean all of this.

Anonymous said...

do you want to leave crush? best options are tsf and stallions two teams that are going to be very strong in the next few months (tsf dominated brick last sunday)
Also STA and fc copa are really good.you have good options if you want to leave.

Anonymous said...

why would anyone want to go to stallions at this age, no way they can do anything in next two years with this team.
WCFC , PDA then MF. Then IGFA.

Anonymous said...

LOL! TSF dominated Brick? I want some of what you're on. TSF isn't in the same class. They scored 10 minutes in and played 9 back for the rest of the game, and Brick STILL tied it. The rest took care of itself.

"And if they win the state cup at the second level it is still a state cup championship, just a lower level state cup"

This has already been addressed to the ignorant Pt. Pleasant folk. There is only ONE State Cup...period. And You're not in it. Yours is simply a lower level tournament created to take your teams money, which is why they name it "State Cup". It is meaningless. Is there more than one Superbowl Winner? MLB, NHL, NBA? But, whatever helps you to feel good about where you're truly at.

Anonymous said...

It is not meaningless but it cant be mistaken for the real state cup. Many parents do lie to themselves however. I know a coach who won the lower level and was very honest with me when he said they get jackets and no one will know the difference.

Anonymous said...

State Cup it is - for those level teams

They will be THE BEST IN THE STATE among those that play at that level.

Anonymous said...

I think people are realizing that stallions doc will get results (see older team, every girls is ID'ed and always near tops in the country). Crush hasnt been in top flight of anything since he left. At this age its OK to have a tough coach, maybe you even need it, ends justify the means. recruiting years are coming up fast, coaches that are players best friends and come over to parents house for drinks are for long gone.

I did hear that the doc got a little to close to some of his parents

Too close is putting it in a very politically correct way.

Ok, Brick Dad, you keep trying to tell yourself and everyone else that. But in reality, your team had to fight very hard for that win against a 10 players and it all came down to one save during PKs. Hope you at least thanked your goalie!

Anonymous said...

TSF is an "Academy", no? In the REAL reality, a small town team scored the tying goal against an academy team that played 9 defenders and a goalie back for 60 of 70 minutes and then promptly beat said academy team in PKs. Oh, the big bad academy team only had 10 players? Guess what, the small town team was playing with 4-5 girls injured/sick. Don't come here talking ridiculousness, you just make yourself look like a moron. Win a meaningful game, then stop back to chat.

P.S. Of course the goalie was thanked, as is always the case.

Anonymous said...

The fact that your team struggled against a team that ducks real competition is a sign that Brick is on the decline. As noted earlier Brick had their run at u12 &13 now as they slide down the ranking pole it's clear that they no longer will be able to compete against premier region 1 teams. Tsf barely won a game in Edp north ...lol... So you tie Freehold and narrowly escaped TSF...and you consider yourself good. Regardless of the formation you should have scored and that's that.

Tsf and brick have something in common... They don't play to ... They play not to loose..lmao

Just the fact that we talk Tsf and brick In the same sentence is quite extraordinary.
Tsf team is just above recreational level. Their best achievement was to win Neptune tournament so that said it all.( the fact that they show up to a state cup game with only 11 players also show the kind of committment the team has, but that it another story ). Brick has been at the top level for years and still is. True that they are facing some unexpected difficulties with such lower teams that defend with many players but this is also the same way of playing that brick has: many players behind the line of the ball creating lots of problems to the attacking team, and if there is a chance a break away goal for a 1-0 game. Now somebody might not like it and I am one of them but it is their way to play . It has been working for a long while.

Yet another clueless drone. had their run at u-12 and 13? The team has been at or near the top since u-8. And being ranked #3 is hardly a "slide down the ranking pole". As far as being able to compete, we'll see won't we.

If you want ECNL - PDA and Match Fit.

And there are no academies on the girls side, that is only on the boys side. ECNL is similar.......

otherwise, stay with your town team, the others like TSF, NJCSA, NJ RUSH, Wildcats, over charge and you really don't get anything for the investment.

It wasn't improperly described. it's EXACTLY what they did. What negative was attached to it exactly? Other than the fact that they tried to sit on a one goal lead for 60 minutes with it, and still couldn't.

The bottom line is, the better team won. Doesn't matter how, when, why, what formation they beat, how many players the other team had, who was injured, etc.
The better team won as they should have.

Anonymous said...

I dont think you could immediately say PDA for the best ECNL team in the area (any more)..standings dont lie. Forced to play not good teams, elite teams week in and week out. There is no where to hide, and see how they are doing. Dont be fooled the lowly alberton team or Delco team, they would give any of the teams on this blog a great competitive game.

9 players played defense.

Why are you masking fun of the fact that they played back and you STILL got ONE goal, when you were the better team?

You didnt just attack with seven, did you?

LMAO at people actually trolling for TSF. A team that has absolutely no impact or effect on this age group whatsoever. Shouldn't you be either at training or trying to find more girls for the team. Silly really.

Anonymous said...

TSF doesn't have any impact? Actually, this team or its coach took the 1st place from IGFA by playing the re-scheduling game and forfeiting at the end of the EDP North season - cost IGFA the 1st place. IGFA would destroy this team in soccer. However, by playing this dishonest "game", TSF had a great impact on the overall standing. EDP League did not do anything about this - shame. So, TSF - no impact from the soccer prospective, agree. But be careful, the foxy coach can make the difference.

Besides all this stuff , in your opinion on a pure technical and tactical point of view ( no bs or haters or stupid drama). Who plays the best soccer at this age?

Fair question

Tech - do you want who the best trainer is or the best technical players?

If players - may be PDA Storm - they like to possess the ball and call it a victory.

Tactical - may be Wildcats, may be MF ECNL

Overall - it is MF ECNL

Quite a few teams getting excellent training - and a few close to that level

Wildcats play good soccer and can beat anybody. Just beat COPA in state cup that is something already . Now quarter final and semi. Not easy but cats can do it . They have more experience than IGFA in these competition .
My prediction are semi: wildcats vs brick ( they are always lucky in tight games sorry freehold ) and barons vs sta.

If you have traveled outside of NJ you can see some solid teams playing the beautiful game.
In MD you have Bethesda and Premier Strikers with high skill and pace.
In PA you can watch Penn Fusion FC Bucks or Lower Merion and be entertained by their brand of soccer.
In NY you have HBC, NYSC, & World Class FC all are solid teams that move the ball around.

In NJ, IGFA, Slash, SJEB, & the Brick team that played last fall all play a nice brand of soccer that as a fan of the sport I have enjoyed watching. None of the teams are perfect and yes they all can be beaten. But from a technical and tactical point of view these teams are some of the better ones that I have seen play at this age group.

Those teams mentioned above should be in a region 1 premier league and that's a fact the others are from competing with them.... Which is why it is important to play teams from outside of NJ to really measure where you are....playing against the same NJ teams over and over again is not developmentally appropriate...there is no real measure when playing against teams below the top ten within your respective state... Which is why I really admire our DOC... He is always looking to play teams outside of NJ and when he schedules a friendly game they are against teams that are as strong or the other gender because for the most part the better boy teams play quicker, cleaner and challenge our girls to do the same... He is an out the box fellow with a passion that is admired and respected... He has done amazing things for our girls in two years and it will only get better as the progress...

Wildcats vs IGFA: wildcats
Freehold vs brick : freehold

Wildcats is stronger than in the past and will be showing in the above game. Brick cannot be always that lucky and freehold will go through this time.

You people are so hateful. So what if DM is coaching. If you don't like him dont play for him. I can tell you that every player that has played for him has loved him. He's a good coach, maybe not the best at managing. Hopefully other people are involved. Its so funny that the town coach is posting about him because he's afraid his team will fall apart.... and he should be. Good luck with that.

PDA u14 needs more than just a coach they need an overhaul of players too. Their current ranking is not indicative of their poor performance. They tally ECNL POINTS but they don't include their 4th place results. They need to do some serious poaching and that outcome will fall short. MR was salivating recently at a practice but all hell will brake loose if she crosses that line.

Point Pleasant usually wins by kicking players or GKs in the face, cleat first, with the parent cheering them on....bullying tactics on the field, ultimately, will be their demise as usual when teams use these tactics it usually means their lacking in technical skill and abilities. It's a shame that parents nor their coach ever told these girls there's more dignity in winning based on skills than playing dirty. So they may enjoy their wins for now; but they are empty wins...how do players feel about themselves when they know how they play?

Whats the best accademy team to go to, coming from and EDP town team?

Anonymous said...

Which academy? That is a loaded question. Many factors to consider. First which ones are you willing to drive to 2-3 times a week. That is your starting point. Narrow it down further based on understanding the club and coaches philosophy on development vs winning, play time, plan for the team as far as college exposure. Understand what leagues and tournaments teams at that club play. Go to training sessions. Do you like what you see and here? Does your daughter like the coach and team? Cost for training will all be similar except for travel costs. That could vary by 2-3 thousand. Oh yeah, almost forgot, is your daughter good enough to make one of these teams. Will you and her be OK if her playing time is less or she is now at a different position. Moving away from the town mommy/daddy ball is the right move. You just need to find the right fit for your daughter and her goals. Many solid options out there. You need to start going to other team practices starting yesterday.

Hey HJ with the overhaul of 91 on the parkway why don't you overhaul your team simultaneously... With wider lanes and a new bridge ... A new team will suit it well too... It will be like an extreme makeover... Or even better why don't you just let it go and let them grow and develop elsewhere... God knows you have them floundering with ties and losses how is that development... Winning against NJ teams at U14/U15 and loosing against region1 programs heck might as well call it rec... That hardest thing in life is knowing when to let go and give up.... It's not about you it's about the girls... You did what you could and now it is time to move on... Force did when will you

Wow Easter Sunday & the 1st thing you do when you wake up is obsess over what Brick is doing? You really don't have a life. Clearly there is an agenda here either jealousy over what they have done or how they are viewed by other top teams or you are upset they didn't go to your Club or you are trying to get them to break up so they will come to your club then they'll be a good team right? Spend time with your family today & go to church as it has to be embarrassing to your spouse & kids that you obsess over another set of 13-14 year olds & their coach. I'm praying for you that you get the help you need or satisfaction in your own life that you no longer need to think about what total strangers are doing.

HJ need a tissue no one is obsessed with you or your team just do what's best and let it go... Your wasting their time and it is in their best interest to part ways after all you can not, have not and will not be able to provide the training or development needed to compete regionally so stop being selfish. We know you mean well but you literally can't produce. The numbers are evidence of your failure. It is not personal just business. Do what right for the girls and let it go. It's time to break ways you have done enough and I am sure they are greatful for it. But if they don't make the move now they will regret it and you will be at fault. Believe our team has no room for your girls but there are others trying to rebuild. It's your responsibility to man up and admit that you are unable to meet the demands, lack the know how, and do not have the resources to give the girls what they need. Yes you are not alone and there are other coaches out there too. But no other town has the potential on their squad and because of your unwillingness to let go all of that talent will go to waste. I hope the parents are reading this because sometimes when you are trapped in the box it is very difficult to see what is happening. The Copa parents took my advice and little by little they are parting and looking for a place of development and not empty promises. Make the move now befor it is too late.

Sounds like DM is hard at work trying to bring down Brick so he can pick up those players but here's a news flash they would never play for you again so it's not going to happen. And I agree when you wake up & the 1st thing you do is talk about another team that is obsessed!

So stay clear parents of Brick and NJCSA because as you can see it more about them than the girls... There is no way that either club can provide your girls with the right opportunity. They are not the right fit. Here on the blog ruffling their feathers when in actuality DM or HJ lack the gusto, heart and brain to move your girls in the right direction. Parents step out of the box. Look around and check out other programs and you will see that there is more to this game than chasing points. When your club is not playing 500 ball, when they give more goals than they can score, or when they are on the blog bragging about 5 wins in their last 18 games you have to take a step back and reevaluate the moment. Highschool is around the corner and the best HJ has to offer is an edp cup title please... When was the last time a scout came to see a club that is playing 400 ball, when was the last time any recruiter talked about watching a team play that considered more losses as a sign of development and progress ... Let the girls go coach it's better for them and for you... You do not want to be the reason why the girls flounder in rec level ball forever... They need to be with a coach that will take them to next level which you HJ have failed to do

Attacking Brick is pointless. They are the one team that has nothing at all to prove. Only team around since the age group began, and will be the only team left when it ends. We've seen plenty come and plenty go, and don't need any outsider approval or disapproval. Worry about paying your fortune at your "academy". We'll still be here doing what we're doing and probably embarrass you when the time comes. Ask all of the others, the ones that are even still around.

LOL! All this talk about Freehold. What have they ever won? Ever? Not a damn thing...

Don't know who DM is but make a reference to NJCS? Then say birds of a feather flock together but the comment was that DM is the one stirring the pot hoping to get the players from Brick including the ones that played on the Force before he ran it into the ground so you make NO SENSE! Sounds like you have an agenda & maybe are competing in that area so since you cannot talk about your club you need to bash. Get a life of your own.

NJYSA is going to be a great option with DM . Lots of interest in the team since he became coach.
He doesn't need to call because girls and parents will call, some ex force are not happy where they are and they will try to go back to him , JH is covering a bad situation at brick where people are not happy but are too afraid to leave ( I was one of them but now I will have to make a move soon).

Freehold has been at the top level for years, still one of the strongest team out there. State cup games will show that to all of you haters. Go freehold

What I would like to figure out is how to get the players in the shore conference area to unite on one team. Could you imagine a team of the solid players from Brick, Freehold, Jackson, and NJX. If the parents could somehow get those girls together that would be you top team in the state. I’m not talking about the best kid on the team that is seeking ECNL. I’m talking about the 3,4,5 kid that controls the midfield or the fullback that just does her job. Those players that the parents can’t afford the PDAs of the world for 20 minutes of playing time and the hour and a half commute 3 times a week. We need a program that has strong leadership, a commitment to the player’s future, communication with the parents and a facility. That would put an end to these coaches coming on here taking pot shots at each other because they are afraid they may lose players. If that team existed in the shore conference area there would be a line of good, athletic players at the tryout. That team would not only compete with but probably be stronger than the ECNLs.

Are you too good to talk about non academy teams. I bet your daughter is on an academy team but sits the bench 90% of the game. You just like to brag about the letters on her jersey

Yet another jackass, hater. Why so much venom towards Brick other than jealousy? If they weren't worth talking about, no one would be talking. They lose they suck and are on the slide, they win and they're lucky. All postives = luck, all negatives are over-exaggerated failures. Been hearing the same old banter for years now.

But 7-1 come on that's a threat after they went in there looking to destroy everyone then little GFa came along and BB had no idea what hit him... Splash did not scor till the last minute when GFa eased up on them... All PDA is doing is adding fuel to the fire... So when they do meet it will get really ugly for PDA quickly.... At the this point GFa could care less about the PDA because they are too busy getting better and stronger.... So keeping ducking.... And realize that BB is hiding for a reason .... A pounding indoors followed by a whipping outdoors will not be good for the high and mighty PDA.... One game at a time... PDa will have their turn and it will be ugly for them ...

GFA is a 1 team sensation. not sure how you can compare yourselves to PDA. A bit naive
Of course I m talking club vs club . There are non ecnl teams around the country that will always be better than many ECNL teams . You are one of them and we applaud your training & success at recruiting & retaining your talent. You must be doing something right . Good luck going forward.However You are some what dazed and bewildered to attack the PDA club as a whole. Your inferiority complex is apparent. Celebrate your team. It is top group of gottsoccer across the nation. Being snubbed at PDA shouldn't bother you a bit. You have bigger fish to fry .And I 'm sure you will continue to climb the rankings. Please let us know when you have another team out there and lets see what the staying power is. Come back and talk when you have some history. As is the talk on this blog, how many kids have you placed in colleges so far.

10:26 you are absolutely right, IGFA should not dare to be talked about in this blog. Nobody at IGFA has any whatsoever complex of any kind. People here are trying to pretend to be from IGFA to fire up something.
IGFA is a small entity and will never be anything big like pda or match fit. Different philosophy and different way of managing development. There are 99% of the teams here that are in similar situation . Some club have only one team and the other are Rec but still lots of talking of how good they are. IGFA is doing what they think is right. Others and results will be the judge of that. Nobody cares of pda or any other teams. Wish them all great soccer future. All these writing on this blog are only causing so much damages for all the teams and all girls that are only 13-14 years old and to be honest I do not understand what makes an adult doing and write such things but it is what it is. Good luck to all teams and all players for an healthy season a

What do you think is a bigger waste of money going to NJCSA with DM in charge, Wildcats or PDA Shore? If you are paying for what DM can provide then you are just throwing money out the window. Wildcats are also not getting big returns for what you get back unless of course you are one of the ones going for free. PDA Shore might be the biggest rip off if you look at all the low flights their teams are in at tournaments for the money to pretend that you are really a part of PDA. Even with all this information people will still flock to these places & asked to be lied to so they can feel like their kid is getting an advantage when all you're doing is lining peoples pockets while they make empty promises. My hope is one day people do research & look into things themselves before they end up somewhere on a 30 man roster wondering what did I do? MF also can be put on this list for the crazy roster totals & no success in this age group to speak of ECNL or NPL.

Anonymous said...

PDA and MF take in as many as they can. Then they divide them according to ability. Then claim development because they are left with whoever is still interested in playing soccer. If you count the number of people who pay to the number of people that make d1 the ratio or rational does not make sense. It should be called the players showcase academy because they do very little to develop. Yes they are a monopoly but the suckers are the parents that flock there with the dream of little Mia playing d1. The percentages don't favor the outcome but it's their money so who cares let them go brag about their set like gang bangers claiming #1 status and they are #1 in ripping people off.

Well stated! The truth hurts. People will pay whatever asked as long as the illusion remains intact. The uninformed and under educated would rather just pay a big named "academy" only to barely play on a 30 girl roster and for perceived great training and the known logo than a cream of the crop "town team" with a proven method that has worked for years. Wake up folks, and stop having your money taken.

If you have not played on PDA then you dont know what you are talking about. If you have played on PDA and no longer are, well you have a bone to pick because you were not needed there. PDA gets into EVERY top tournament. PDA gets into the flight they want at each. PDA automatically attracts college coaches (which doesnt matter at U14 but it will in 2 years). You get what you pay for and you pay for exposure that is guaranteed. Not saying it is perfect, but it is what it is.

Not a bad comment 7:52. My oldest daughter played for PDA and was a good player. Not a D1 player but had a D1 coach recommend her to a D2 coach and she is playing there. Connections are what they offer.

Anonymous said...

The person on this blog that is so focused on DM at NJCSA is way out of line. My daughter has played for him and none of those statements are true. Here is what the truth is from my perspective: There are top names running NJCSA that brings immediate credibility to the program. They are building fields that will be second to none and are now also focusing on a girl’s side that will benefit immediately. They are already in NPL and with the contacts and politics of soccer this team will be accepted into every major showcase in the northeast. They have positive relationships with top people in the state and Sky Blue. I think what they are doing at NJCSA makes it a good option and since my daughter enjoyed playing and training with DM in the past so she will be at the tryouts. I have also never seen or heard a teammate or parent say anything “creepy” about him or feel he stole their money. Don’t let that one person sway you away from anything. Due your research, ask questions, go to several different tryouts and pick what is best for you and your child because you both have to believe in the team.

Anonymous said...

As I read through the lastest comments I am amazed at the ignorance. Everybody picks at PDA....there are some girls on PDA that I, personally, don't think are better than other players on other teams. The "academy" team may roster a lot but did you ever think that they have a deep bench because of injury, family commitments, respite for weary players. The bottom line whether your daughter plays for PDA, an academy team, town team or rec....if your daughter is good and has potential she will move up to the head of the bench and her playing time will increase. But there are other factors that coaches take into consideration for playing time and that has to do with a player's attitude toward the the coach, the team....in practice and playing during a game...does your daughter hog the ball and has to be the center of attention or is she really a team player....is she putting her own agenda ahead of what's best for the team during a game. So, don't worry if the rooster is deep....you should worry about the fact that if your daughter is getting enough playing time then she needs to develop better skills and attitude to increase her playing time....the last time I checked playing time was earned not given because of dollars spent or mommy & daddy or player for that matter throwing a tantum at the coach or the club. Wake up: if your daughter is good she will rise to the top......on any team. All college coaches look for how well do you recover on the field when a mistake is made are your a diva or more importantly are your parents difficult to work with and overly demanding. You can look at every team in the area and point to the players that are more developed than others....regardless of the team.

Anonymous said...

OK, let me throw my 2 cents into the PDA discussion. If anyone knows anything about elite girls soccer I think will agree with the following.
The Splash are a very good team, they can get into any tourney they want and any flight they want, BUT they(meaning the club not the team)couldn't care less about any gotsoccer ranking. there bread and butter are with the ECNL league and in this case they are failing miserably. They have been out played by just about every team in the ECNL conference. PDA prides itself at ECNL National Championships not their own spring kick off, not Jeff Cup or even Eclipse in Chicago. This is a direct hit at the coach. He had a false sense of superiority and didnt even have open tryouts until last year. Now girls are going to Matchfit, girls are no longer making the long trip to Zarapath from Pa and are going to Penn Fushion, Bucks, etc.. They are no longer the only shark in the tank, and now BB's talent pool has diminished. He's grasping at leftovers now and if he's gone next season there will be no more alligence to anyone on the team from U11 and there could be a complete overhall. I believe as it stands now they are the only PDA team not headed into the ECNL playoffs. Look my daughter didnt tryout ther because of geographical reason and as I said there are more fish in the sea if you want to go the ECNL route.

Everyone likes to see the big bad bully take a beating, the Yankees lose to the small market team and for Barca or Madrid to lose to a relagation team. So everyone is intrigued by PDA's current tailspin and see if they can pull out of it. Of course they will, they have more in their name and more resources than all the clubs in NJ put together, they will not fail, BUT all those "elite" teams in NJ that think they have a chance to get accepted into the ECNL, dont hold your breath, PDA is not going to cutt off their nose to spite their face.

Come on, that's like their company tag line. You don't need to roster 2+ full teams to account for those things. It's a blatant money grab. Keep drinking that (now watered down) blue Kool-Aid.

You're a little ridiculous. Yes they might young adults but that doesn't mean that they can't get tired from 4-6 hours of practice a week plus games plus other things in their lives.

And if the bench is deep enough then the girls aren't playing tired which reduces their chances for injury....or are you one of those parents who believe that players should play injured and sick because "their young" and can take it.

I'm proud of what my daughter and other players balance between practice, school requirements, games, tournaments, etc. School and growing up is a little different than when you grew up so instead of judging and criticizing. I, for one, don't mind a deep bench but then I nor my daughter have ever been afraid of competition and measuring up to other players....after all that's what has your gander up isn't it.....maybe you're one of the parents that' always complaining about not enough play time; always whining to someone about how this or that isn't fair; but you don't have the resources to turn them in your favor. Mock all you want; but you don't seem to have any ground-breaking answers either.

FYI, a deep bench is around 17-18. 22-30 is ridiculous, however, justify it anyway you like since you obviously have the money. Spend away, blue loves you! LOL!
I guess spoiled little rich girls can't handle all the tough practices, too many games, etc. Now we know EXACTLY what happened to Splash. They're all overworked and exhausted. Wow...

To 5:23.....your response isn't even relevant yet alone intelligent. I was talking about PDA specifically...I was talking about every/any team. If one's daughter is a great player, REGARDLESS OF THE TEAM, that player will advance.....i.e., have more playing time, move up to better teams, get more/better exposure. Moving up to different team levels doesn't necessarily mean PDA.....who's brainwashed now ......how many glasses of Kool Aide did you drink to think that PDA is the ultimate option. The coach matters and how they instruct and nurture the players is as important as the team. The other important factor here is that each player may mature at different times than others....hence the reason why you can look at ANY TEAM in the state and see better players than others. Some have better skills at a younger age....some acquire better skills as they mature. The real/true test is to see these girls playing at U17/U18....it's closer to how they will play as young adults or in college if they pursue that option.

To 7:49.....I think you may be the idiot. Try to keep up with the comments before you speak. The previous comments were about any team in the state and that there are good and better players to be found REGARDLESS OF THE TEAM. PDA is not the holy grail of soccer in this state....their model works for some but not for everyone and there are good/better players on other teams TOO! THE POINT MADE IN PREVIOUS POSTS WAS THAT IF YOUR DAUGHTER IS GOOD REGARDLESS OF THE TEAM SHE WILL GAIN MORE PLAYING TIME.......THE SAYING IS "CREME RISES TO THE TOP". So if your daughter or any player is good their playing time will increase. You really should read through the posts before you shoot off an answer that's not relevant or missed the entire point. And, by the way, if you or anyone else thinks of PDA first before anything else when talking soccer then PDA has certainly brainwashed all of you....great branding on their part. Negative attention is still great attention......all of you who keep speaking about about PDA just reinforce everything that you despise against PDA......stop worrying about PDA and worry about the developing your daughters into better players and then PDA will not be an issue.
