7:20 yes that is the reason, now go back to talk about HS . Thanks
Its ok jv not bad for her,keep paying for extra training and the DOC will keep sending her to id camp.
Why did GFA went to Princeton? all their NPL teams are now GFA/Princeton. What happened to their merge with TSF?
Sprited United ends at U14 - New seasons starts 8/1 - therefore U15s now would not be eligible to participate....not because anyone is ducking competition.
The two heads of the clubs had falling in love then hate a fight and split up and split the kids in the settlement now gfa is dating princeton and some gfa kids went to pda and matchfit mad at there 2 dads.any other questions.
1:32- just clearing some misinformation. spirit United ends at U-15. The u15 girls played this weekend on the boys weekend. GFA applied but withdrew. Don't know the reason and don't really care. Candidly, I'm sure their girls could use a break.
Spirit United played a u-15 girls bracket this weekend during he boys weekend and the application was available for u16 but they could not fill the bracket. The link is below. You have to scroll down to the bottom to see it. http://events.gotsport.com/events/?eventid=43834So GFA dropped out to avoid losing to Commack again.
7:58 yes you keep repeating yourself and the answer is yes , they were too scared and decided to hide in a cave to avoid Commack, now go back to your sad life. You did your usual job today . Come back tomorrow with something negative again . What an idiot lol . Remember your daughter was not good enough. You need to accept it . Lol
8:28 what HS is this?
Oh Eddie how sad you are
NJ elite will be tops by the end of the year. New players making big impact.
big impact on who? nobody is playing anyone right now.
NJ Elite will be tops at the Lyndhurst SPOOKTACULAR. You'll see, we are unstoppable!
"In our town a certain father picks who is going to play Varsity and the coach listens to him. Many juniors were overlooked to bring freshmen and sophomores who play for the same team. Politics, politics!! Wait until these players have to earn their spot without daddy looking after them!! LOL"Which town are you speaking of exactly?
NJ Elite is a weak program.
It's Watchung Hills . The results are out a certain influential dad made recommendations to the coach and he took them
Is that a real town?
Congrats to all the girls that made Varsity. Does that affect tournaments in Oct.?
Tournaments "should" be scheduled for Nov or after. But.
Late Nov. Def. but some teams are in Tourn. before.
It SHOULD affect October eventsPlaying for club during your school season is selfish, isnt it?
Playing for your club team during HS is selfish? Damn right. Because it's all about your kid and the club/academy is where your kid is seen. No college coaches follow HS. Your club is priority. HS is fun.
There are many college showcases late Nov.,Dec, and January.
Playing club tournaments while doing high school is asking for injury from over use. I don't recommend it.
The injuries don't come from club - the injuries come from playing HS - some teams train 7 days a week preseason; play 3-4 games a week and train upwards of 3 hours on the days there are no games.By the time the players are finished with HS season they are worn down and ready for injuries just when the tournaments start for club....somebody needs to tell these teacher coaches for HS teams that they are doing more harm than good; but I guess they really don't care - it's an extra paycheck for them; some HS coaches think it's a way to get to a college level coaching position and the only time HS soccer gets any recognition from colleges is if a player is playing both club and HS and the HS is one of the top 5-10 team in the state or region.......everything else for HS is fun....and to be honest it's not that much fun if half the team is a rec playing level and you have some girls from a club playing level.
Idiot -If you choose to play HS - it is 6 days a weekThus, having made that choice - and you ALSO choose to play club, it is the CLUB games/practices that put you over the top re: getting injuredYes, this is what we mean by being selfish - and also reckless with your daughter's health and general well being.If the club is begging her to play on her "off day" from school ball, find another club.
To 9:37 p.m....you're the idiot. Our HS team does practice 7 days a week; how can you debate a topic/point when you know absolutely nothing about that school/township/team I'm referring to you. Do you normally talk without knowing what your're talking about.Second, I wasn't really asking for your opinion or advice; the clubs don't put the pressure on the girls/players...it's the HS teacher/coaches who do.Lastly, I'm not reckless with my daughter's health - she's doesn't play HS soccer because, frankly, it's a waste of her time and talent and neither one of us wants to risk injury for players who don't take the game seriously....for most HS players it's a way to get out of Gym and do a fall sport....that's it.
Then STFU - if your daughter doesnt playHave a nice club season
Or maybe your problem is your kid's club team has beenw eakened by other girls choosing to play HSGet over it, shirley
HS is horrible soccer period. Socially all girls want to play but girls go back to their clubs worst than they left. That is a fact. If you love HS soceer is only for your own ego and since your daughter is not that good in her club , you are all happy that she gets to play more in the HS team and she is a star. You can say what you want but this is reality
Your daughters are not the next Mia Hamm so get over it and let them have fun and play at the same time.... Life's too short. All academy teams do not train or go to college showcases until HS season is over. That's a fact!
To 8:02 a.m. to you and the other parents who simply don't get it - HS soccer is not fun if your daughter is a very good/great player; it seems like for a short while until they get frustrated with the poor quality of girls playing HS and it's simply not worth the risk of injury for the club season/tournaments that they could miss because of HSMaybe if they did away with teacher/coaches and brought in club coaches who know what they're doing than maybe the quality of play would improve and there would be less injuries and better win records. I have found that most teenagers, regardless of the sport, don't have fun when they loose and are playing with less skilled players than themselves.
Sounds elitist. Good thing Carli Lloyd and Abby Wombach didn't have this blog. They would have missed out on high school soccer memories with their stinky friends.
Superstar club players cant hack not being fawned over by a HS coach who is training players three years older and has to fold in the hotshot freshman's egoWhen said ego goes unstroked all the parent can think of doing is ripping the HS systemOf course some school ball is very very good as well. This cant be deniedAnd the idea that club coaches should also coach school teams is absurd. Some can handle it but this is a remarkable commitment of time, the afternoon sessions followed by nights, the 6 days a week plus the travel to other locales on weekends.Simply very tough to wear both hats
The decision to play or not play HS is not elitist and it has nothing to do with egos. My daughter did play HS last year and it was an underwhelming experience for her: players were not as skilled as she; coaching was terrible; refereeing was terrible; and while she joined to have "fun" she quickly realized it wasn't fun and not worth the risk of injury for games that typically don't matter to a lot of players....it's a way to get out of Gym and say you did a Fall sport.....I don't know how it is with some top schools in the state but it wasn't worth for her.Least we forgot how politically it is......there's always a parent coaching the teacher coach on who he should have on each bench instead of letting the process determine who is best suited for each team. Last year Varsity had 30 players......maybe 18 played but that was done because players had to say they were on Varsity.....the process is pathetic not fun..it's a shame for those players who are really passionate about the game the HS experience can be dismal at best.
Maybe some of you this is your first round in HS soccer. I am on my 3rd and all three loved HS soccer. Yes, they also play and have played for academies. Everyone has there own opinion.
8:48- This sounds so much like our town. We have a father who coaches the coach about who should be in the Varsity team So the same players that play together for the same travel team about 15 of them are in varsity. Everyone else, it does not matter if you also play for a high level academy or high level team or if you are very good pl not player, you are not even looked at for varsity. This year the players got very upset and we had about 10 seniors and juniors quit the varsity team because they knew that they will not see any playing action because they are not part of the town click!!Sad but true, next year my daughter may just stick with the sport she does in the Spring where she has a varsity letter already!!Its a waste of time since your child will never be given a chance!!
So, 8:48 - your daughter didnt play much then, eh?Cant have that now, can we?
HS soccer is only socially good for the girls at the beginning, after that nobody likes it or has any soccer development value. Who is here saying how great HS ball is , just a father or mother of a mediocre player that gets to be a start in HS as she never made it to top teams or somebody that has a big ego to forget about his daughter development.
To 3:50 she did play every game and was a starter for every game; so you'll have to take your condescending tone and attitude and divert it someplace else.I'm glad for some the HS experience has fun for them.
HS soccer is torture for me. But it's not about me. My daughter is associating with school mates, developing new connections with her in town friends and is enjoying such things like walking to practice or stopping in at convenient store for a snack with new teammates. Yes, the level of play is well below the club level that we are accustomed to but it's not about me right now. It's about her. With a little effort after the HS season, and a well orchestrated program her club team will regroup and prepare for the real deal. Hopefully injuries are at a minimum and that their rate of regression is little enough to impact the speed of play. "I rather watch paint dry, wack myself with a hammer constantly or stab myself in the neck repeatedly than watch HS soccer"
USYSA pulled the trigger. Birth year classification starting next season (2016-17) US club will soon follow. Big mix up about to happen
So what does this mean, exactly, and how does this impact players starting next year?
My daughter playes 'Academy' scooer and is a starter at the highest level in the state and also plays school soocer. she loves school soccer. is it tough to watch and do i hold my breath every hoping she doesn't get injured everytime she takes the field - absolutely. However, i belive that school soccer has made her a better player and person. it has provided her the opportunity to see the field, and learn the game, from many different positions. this has given her a first person (from the other positions) understanding of how her 'fixed' position on her club team affects and interacts with everyone else on the field. more importantly, i have seen her grow as a leader by working with the girls on the team that aren't as skilled as she it. this is a life lesson and experience that i hope she continues to build on as she continues to grown into a fine young lady, athlete and student. this has also elevated her'leadership' profile within her club team.
.. and sorry for all the typos. i stink at typing on my phone.
All competition will be based on birth yearhttp://www.usyouthsoccer.org/assets/1/15/2016-SSG-BIRTH-YEAR-USYS-FAQ.pdfhttp://www.usyouthsoccer.org/assets/1/15/2016-SSG-BIRTH-YEAR-USYS-FAQ.pdf
10:56. Get yourself a stylus, works for me!
GFA better hope all of their players are born before August if this re-org takes place.
Its more like teams will hope all their players are born in 2001 or later. All the Aug to Dec 2000 kids who are eligible to play now and would be playing u16 for the 2016/2017 season would need to play u17 according to the rules. Some teams may lose a lot of their core players.
Last paragraph from the story:"The birth-year registration initiative will not cause the dissolution of age-group based teams that already play together, but will rather give players the opportunity to ‘play up’ with older age-groups."
Typically the team with more of the older players are better especially at the younger ages; now the older players will be the youngest and probably will not be the "mia" player on the team ... This will effect chances getting the scholarship to a d1.Life can change at a moments notice and so we say "good bye" to many parents who will now move on to the older blog and will have nothing to say as their star goes from 1-8 to 10-22 & in turn will be looked at less by colleges.And "hello" to many of the mid age player's (jan-jun) parents who will now be more vocal as their kids become the older/better players on the team.
What's to stop a younger player from playing up? Is it forbidden?
no you can always play up.
This birth year thing makes no sense whatsoever for girls. What happens when your birth year has half juniors and half seniors? The girls who are juniors will lose half their teammates when they become seniors.Since college play is the goal for all level girls, they should just go by graduation year with a max age restriction built in. Everyone on the team in the same boat. Would make life easier for everyone, especially when it comes to college recruiting.
You are clueless. It ties everything to the national teams.
More important what happens to the got soccer points, ratings? Who will be the new top teams in the age group? Which teams has the most to lose, gain?
GFA #1 in the Nation! Got most points. Can't take that away. We will reload if they break our age group up.
6:45 hey , you are back with trying to put GFA on the spot again, it was so much better without you around for few days. Unfortunately you are back with your way of provoking and pretending to be part of Gfa . Your hate doesn't end . Feel sorry for you, what a miserable life you are living. Only because your daughter was not good enough. But I am sure she will do great in HS soccer so why don't you focus on that for a while and you come back ..... Hopefully never. Nobody is biting but I am sure you will answer your message yourself to get this negativity going. Nobody cares anyway. You have nothing else after all so if it helps your sad life go ahead.
GFA 8 Hawks ECNL 2. GFA is the best team in the country. We beat a team that was +57 in goals, what did your team do? You can't deny it! You are the troll who's daughter isn't good enough for us. GFA #1 in the USA ! We will dominate next season before the realignment.
No pda is the best still everybody goes there , they will dominate everything again over and over. Best player left all the other teams to go there. PDA BEST IN THE COUNTRY

Coach is fantastic and the team is fantastic and their field is fantastic, they dominated every game they played so far and will be the best team in the nation very soon!!! Go NJ ELITE!!!!!!

Do not forget us! The wildcats / brick is the strongest team out there and our coach can fix everything with points. We proved it this past few months! Go cats!!!
10:52 thank you for starting this bs , we were having good conversation about HS and age rules but you have to step in with your hating comments and start problems . Idiot .
NOO! Freehold will be #1! Best players, best coach, best manager - the BEST
Didn't want anyone to forget how awesome GFA is for beating the Hawks B-team, I mean ECNL team by 6 goals. You remind us on the blog as soon as the final whistle blows. Just a reminder for the rest of us during the offseason who the best in the U.S. is.
7:23 why You cannot stop, i am not even involved with This team but really you are be coming annoying, is really impossible to have some decent conversation without you stepping in with your negativity? It is not even in the contest of the conversation, you really want to move the attention of the blog to attacking a team, it is so clear that really bothers me and I am sure some other parents over here. This is nothing the regular bashing ( that already is pretty disgusting) it is personal. Please keep your frustration out of here cause nobody really cares about it and is really offensive . You should be ashamed of yourself. I wish other people would tell you to stop . I am sure your intelligence level is really low so you will reply and keep doing what you are doing.
7:52 you are wrong , it was you the posted all that stuff to create problem. And they are not the best team but still your daughter was not good enough. Move on to your new great fantastic team. I am sure you are going to lead there soon when everybody realize what kind of person you are, now go back to your sad life lol
Pda is the best team nobody forget!!!
NJ ELITE with the new manager of the team and his fantastic daughter is the team to beat ! What a great summer they had, want everybody to remember the great games they played and total domination they showed!! Go Nj elite
No Stallions are the best, look at their results this summer ! Great team and getting stronger with new additions!!! Strongest NPL team

Freehold!! Do not forget freehold!!! And crush with a great comeback !! And world class ECNL team!!!
The Brick girls that went to wildcats were the worst ones left of the bunch.
Fell better about yourself knocking some kids down, hope you spouse reads this to see what a prize they won.
I heard gfa is being taken over from dts?
Gfa is no longer. Refer to them by their new club name which is Princeton.
Even better do not talk about them , it is good you think they do not exist anymore , maybe you leave them alone.yes DTS took them now they are all Nj elite the greatest club and team in Nj .
I'm hearing a few clubs had to drop out of WAGS? Why sign up? It's HS season until the end of Nov. Many better college showcases out there.
IGFA should be ashamed for playing over 50 games in one year. Their girls will be hurt, tired, and sick of soccer by next year! Over-use injury will keep them from even playing past HS. I hope Princeton SA sets those coaches straight! Start saving your money for knee replacement surgery in ten years.
Add NJ Stallions and SJA to that list too
Add also NJ elite , StA, Copa , and most of the others.
This is my first time reading this blog and I can tell you it will be my last. The majority of you should be ashamed of yourselves for the crap you type. You are the type of people who have never played a sport in your life and now live through your daughters. The type of people who's lunch money was taken from them when you were kids and cried all the way home to mommy. The last ones picked in gym class and the first one hit with the dodge ball. Now you're on a blog talking tough but will never have the balls to confront the people you eagerly call out. Guess what, none of your girls will play on the national team and the majority won't even play D1. I suggest you soccer dads find something better to do than blog all day long. Here's one suggestion try paying more attention to your wives.
Hey gfa slick do you have your black jumpsuit ready for the fall season?
So 1:39I guess you TOOK the lunch money.....Must be so proud
A few clubs had to drop out of WAGS? Only 2 NJ teams show as entered. Wildcats and NJX. Both should drop out. It's HS season.
The wildcats should, in the wrong bracket, seeded too high. They will get exposed at that level.
Unfortunately my brilliant DOC/coach did not check with us tinder if we wanted to go to WAGS in the middle of HS season. Now my daughter has an issue that will hurt her playing time either way because we can't do both on the same weekend. Our HS coach is brand new and we have a roster close to 30 with only 18 dressing for each game. HS coach has put a lot of pressure on these girls and now we have pressure from DOC. Either way one of them will kill her playing time bit is not just my daughter we have several girls on the same HS team plus others have the same issue at their school. This is just great.
Plain and simple it's HS season until the middle or even for some the end of Nov. these coaches should know better. Especially DOC. Good luck!
If your daughter wants to play at the college level; HS soccer doesn't matter and, by extension, nor do the HS coaches care if they are standing in the way of a player's exposure at a tournament. DOC realizes the importance in player participation; but the HS teacher/coach doesn't recognize the club coach....it's kinda like being between 2 divorced parents. They both want you on their time and both are unwilling to recognize each other's time or needs.Always do what's best for your daughter; what does she want to do....HS soccer doesn't matter to college coaches and they are certainly not traveling to see a HS game.....they're not going to even send their ACs to a HS game....HS is for fun and for those players who may not want to play in college; but for players who want to play in college HS distracts your attention enough where your daughter can miss out on important tournaments....after all how many tournaments are there really for the next several years. Time is very precious.....don't let it be consumed by efforts that don't benefit your daughter
Whether or not you want to play collegiate soccer doesnt enter into thinking when it comes to wanting to represent your town/school
There are many college showcases and your kid is 14.. Plenty of time to be looked at. If your kid is so great the coaches will find them. Also these college coaches are not focusing on tournaments in the fall they are busy with there own team. Especially not looking at a 14 year old. Keep pressuring your kids and you will be sorry. Let them enjoy playing for there HS. All true academies are off in the fall.(until light training starts mid Oct..)
DOC should know better and wait till end of HS season.
DOC could care less. They have 20+ on roster. They will have enough to go.
hey gfa slick what happen this week?....LOL
Just plain Ole Slick will do. Too many teams for prefixes anymore, too hard to keep track of.
So how does your team look with the new birth year age groups? Are people looking at the older or younger teams to see where their kids might fit in? Which teams will look better or worse and at 01 or 00?
Some teams are going to be greatly effected by the new age groups but I think it will all balance itself out at the end!
It's high school soccer, Dad. Take a seat, shut your mouth and just let your daughter have fun out there.
NJX is no longer in WAGS.
That is old news!
How can Disney take the wildcats,but not copa?What a joke.....
is anyone talking about the new age rules and how most teams will be split up? Teams will now be birth year and no longer school year. What a mess

Is that TRIC?
no, not tric, I believe newly forming team for PDA Shore, Brick Fury and others mixed in. I guess I will email the email on file.
1147 Lots of people with heads in the sand. Most higher level teams will be shaken up. All ECNL teams will be
Only one team putting over worked players at risk this weekend at WAGS. It is obvious that they don't care about the players, they have been training or playing games just about everyday since the beginning of August. I'm surprised that these parents are allowing this, but they already are having their pockets fleeced by that organization. But with 24 or 25 on the roster, players that normally would not get a start or much playing time are more than likely the ones making the trip to play this weekend. I hope none of the players get hurt. Hope you represent NJ well.

And Who cares? And why so much advertisement? Desperate already?
How bad is high school soccer can't wait till this crap is over
To 11:24 Yes,Thank you
Looks like the Wildcats will be home for dinner as they make a quick exit out of WAGS. Their DOCs strategy to steal the brick ranking through creative paperwork last year may have fooled some tournaments but their poor play will not fool anyone. Let the rapid decline begin as they start to lose all of the ranking points that brick EARNED last year. They will be down to 10th in the state in a few days and that will continue in the spring.
No real surprise the wildcats finished at the bottom of their bracket.
But they still made into the top showcases this fall
Wildcats only made it because they cheated. When brick team ended the wildcats regarded all their players into the brick roster and had all the parents sign the paperwork for a new player pass as a member of brick. Then they played a few summer tournaments under the brick name in wildcat uniforms coached by the wildcat DOC. Then they transferred the entire brick roster back to the wildcats so the brick points and ranking would follow them. Because only 4 brick players joined the wildcats they could not transfer the points under got soccer rules. So if they did not cheat the wildcats would have been shout out of many of the top tournaments due to their low ranking.
Worry about your own team and child.
Looks like the WC's played competitive ecnl and npl teams. Healthy competition. Only the outsiders or disgruntled complain
Wildcats will continue to fall. Not a good showing but the parents seem to have no problem paying for everything including JH hotel. Only to go a finish last in their bracket. But hey, they will all get full rides, at least that is what their DOC, What a crock of you know what, those players should have rested over the weekend to play tournaments later in the fall. That club put business over the players safety. I hope none of the players were injured over the weekend.
Wasn't our regular goalie
JH was NOT at WAGS. Please. Get your facts straight.
7:38. Your a misinformed, disgruntled loser.
Really? JH is a control freak. I'm sure that if his team and daughter were at WAGS he was there. IMHO based on the results he was there : )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9q3PEO0gkgPretty cool, saw this from my niece.
12:41 - it shows what a pompous idiot you are. He is the father of other children (or don't you know that either) and he was coaching one of his other daughters in a tournament down in Hammonton. People should stop using this blog for their personal vendettas against someone, whether it's a coach or, and it's been done, the girls who play the game. Maybe you should put down the rocks in your hand before you start throwing them in your glass house.
