Wow! if you read all these comments it seems like the Town Teams are more exclusive then the academies. You can pay 2500.00 to play or 250. What would you rather do? Some Town teams have excellent coaching. Some have paid coaches and trainers. There are coaches and trainers for both Town and academies, some good and some bad. You arent going to get an honest answer on this website for sure. Do your homework and find a place thats not looking for a commitment check!

PDA Shore U15's are probably the #2 of the 4 at that age. Behind the Gunners they are best of the remaining 3. They played in mid brackets at top tournaments, but they brought their points with them from NJSA so they had a history. Teams that are a start up at PDA with no points will have a tougher road in some showcases until they develope some history. That being said, unless you are on the ECNL team at PDA your wasting your money. I know as I am one of the parents.

Go tryout for Brick still the best team at the end

Wasting your money,and you are not?MF will show you who is wasting money this weekend!!!!

Brick or freehold are as good as any academy team out there. Brick more experience but freehold is growing incredibly. In central/ south jersey are the two teams of the future.

Hearing NJX has a new coach after this season. Hope it's true some of those girls have a lot of talent.

Really freehold... How will that help ? freehold struggles verses region 1 teams and can only beat brick so how will any player from that team take you to the mountain top ?

Maybe in MOSA or MNJYSa or Jags but that's it. If your not in the top 2 brackets by u15 might as well just play high school soccer. No offense but it's too late for many teams.

already some great players are coming over, i saw at practice , i can see that since our new coach came over the talent is growing in this group. will be the team to beat at u15

Anonymous said...

Please leave Freehold alone, players and parents are happy. I know some of you can't believe that some teams actually get along and like each other. Freehold is one of those teams. Too bad you haven't been able to find a team that's good enough for you and your daughter, maybe you never will...keep searching...

Anonymous said...

Must be a parent or a former parent commenting on NJX. You seem to know an awful lot. You know as well as I know there's always someone unhappy. That child should leave then. Don't drag everyone else down. Just an FYI it's not a parent coach. Since your know so much!!

Anonymous said...

Njcsa is in the lower state cup. How can you take them as a serious team.

Anonymous said...



Is it just me or has everyone lost sight of what has happened to youth soccer. Tryouts in April for a team that will play late fall and next spring?

It is all about these clubs wanting to grab you early so that they can hit their business plan! That's right, most are in it for one reason, to make a living. That is just pathetic. They will claim that your child means a lot to them, really, I would challenge that every single time.

As for NJCSA being a top team? How is that going to happen? The top teams period will be the PDA ECNL and the MF ECNL - they will have access to some great tournaments and they play in a league that was created by college coaches. NJCSA has never had a shot at getting into that league. The next level includes some very good teams, GFA, Brick, SJEB, Freehold, STA, NJX, YMS, etc. etc... So there are options out there, you should ask yourself why would my daughter want to leave her current situation if it is good? You will see the grass isn't always greener and many will realize they may have made a wrong decision.

BUT PLEASE KNOW ---- THIS IS A BUSINESS AND THEY JUST WANT YOUR MONEY Plain and simple.

To April 22, 2015 at 2:28 PM Post:

This is America, land of opportunity and capitalism.....there's nothing wrong with ANY Club charging fees for the services that are provided. I don't you think you realize that running multiple teams, coordinating all the business aspects of a club is like running a business...so why shouldn't people running clubs be compensated like a business. Whether it be PDA, MF or any other academy team I would prefer to have a group of business-minded people running a club in a professional manner than worrying about a volunteer who might misappropriate fees or use them for other things other than tournaments or development for the team. With Academy teams there are "books" for the business, I'm sure tax returns, etc.....all business reporting documents that confirm and verify their legitimate business dealings.....beside their reputations. You have to realize that depending on the team one tournament maybe better for a team at another year than now....Jeff Cup might be better when they're U15s vs. U14s. Typically, the Academy teams all have lists, by year, of exactly who they helped get commited to colleges....not always D1...D2 and D3 and it has nothing to do with athletic ability because some of the D3 schools have a better record than D1

It comes down to 2 things: if your daughter or ANY PLAYER is good they will developed and be noticed and D1 isn't the be all and end all.....You have to see where and how your daughter will fit in and where she will be happy. So stop "hating" the Academy teams until you really understand their mission, results and goals. A question that would be really easy to determine if any coach or club is right for your daughter is: "how many players have you helped get committed to a school".......if a club or coach can recite numbers than it can be verfied....if you get that vague answer......people have walk the talk.

Since these people can't control themselves I vote you take the blog down for couple of days and let them focus on what is really important in life. I think they are addicted to commenting on and then replying to their comments. Kinda creepy.

Anonymous said...

If Brick is done, that is really sad. One less quality place for the girls to play. Gotta wonder if it was taking on the Force girls that brought them down. How many teams have those girls been on? Are those parents ever happy? Where will they all go? There was talk a while ago that Brick would merge with the Wildcats. I guess that was before Brick was merging with PDA Shore... I for one want more choices for my daughter as it feels like everything is a compromise. Very sad for these young ladies.

Anonymous said...


Less options means more it will cost more $'s to play.
Sad.

The problem is with Brick is that you live and die by the strategy of constantly moving players. If players are quick to jump on and you are quick to let go...it is only a matter of time before it gets old with parents and/or those players you bring on are ready to move on again.

Hopefully the coach gets the State Cup he has desired all along this season. That is what the team was really being built for.

Anonymous said...

7:17: lets no get all romantic now. HS is not in few years is tomorrow, and many things can happen in the next years for everybody. Brock was a good team for a good run and wish all the girls the best but the way the coach and the families run this tight team to be fairly good in NJ is also what brought them to this point of breaking.

Anonymous said...

Pal you really need to start focusing on your own daughter and her team. Why do you get the pleasure to see other teams fail? So much pressure is out on these girls day after day, that soccer is becoming a job. Your daughter may not even want to play in a year. So, leave the town team bashing alone. These girls yes, get frustrated,but then they smile together 10 min. later. Good luck to your team!

Anonymous said...

My brother's team just cracked (they are in NY).
So much pressure to win. His daughter was on a nice decent town team but that was not enough. They needed to be on a 'higher' ranked team. They needed to 'win states', 'get better players', blah, blah.

My niece is now off the team and thinking of no longer playing, my brother is worrying about a youth game to the point it is effecting his job and marriage.

VERY self-absorbed parenting and coaching is destroying more players than developing.

From everything I know (and I know), Brick was a victim of its own success. While players do come and go the team should not be folding. Now you have all of the players scrambling for a place to play...well some already have homes but you get the point.

Brick is no different than many, many teams. Over ambitious coaches and parents. The desire to 'keep' players versus developing new players. A common symptom to the larger problem that is almost never cured/remedied. So I am not just focused on them. Just the latest casualty.

Yes, NJX may fold but, they have a new coach after this season. Good luck to them.

It all depends on what level you are seeking and what will be the best fit for your daughter. But don't move her just to move her, that happens way too often and there is regrets in the end. What is your goal? Just to play until about 18 years old? Play in college at some level? That may play a factor in your decision. Don't believe the hype that some of these will sell you, yes sell you. they just want your money. Do your homework, ask questions of people.........In the end just do what's right for your situation. And don't be swayed by others on your team (parents) they just want you to move with them to make their daughters situation easier. those are the parents that break up teams - bottom line.

I've seen all three team play. They are a very good option. You don't need to pay 2500 dollars to play good soccer.

Listen, I get the PDA shore thing finally, with U14 girl and U10 boy in area. They are certainly not claiming to be A team. They give you a piece of paper with everything you need to know. In addition Carl and Lee are really nice guys. IF you want the PDA program, 10 months year training, high level tournaments, college coaches, and "IF" your kid is good enough why not? If they are good enough they will move to better PDA team, C, B to A in Zarephath. BOCA is also a great club, I know girl on U13, they are in top 10 now, however that is U13, the U14 struggle, but still a decent club. Also you do have SJEB, and some decent teams were up at PDA tourney past weekend. TSF, Jackson, Wall. Not great teams, but good teams, I believe Middletown has a D1 coach with that U14 group. Actually they do I see.

12:11 is bitter, very bitter. I posted 11:28, and while my daughter does play for a top 10 GS ranking team in NJ, not best on her team, def lower ring of 16 team roster. I still see the validity in a town team getting a D1 coach, why not play for him, it could open doors and you could get better. So why play for PDA/MF and sit, sit and sit more. If you are not the top 11-13 you are not playing much. Just bitterness on this blog

Anonymous said...

I think the comment on the D1 coach is slightly misleading. Nothing wrong with it per se, but what does that necessarily mean?

Many coaches are former D1 players, doesn't necessarily mean they are great. Doesn't mean they are bad either, it's individual.

Something to ponder, however. Tab Ramos did not coach his kids - in the end, he was / is still just a "parent"...FWIW.

@1:56 agreed. however the coach Middletown has is current D1 coach, not former. He has connections, knows people and must be a decent coach to coach D1? If not he would be at D3, county college, so on so forth. I love the Tab Ramos comment, great point. good post, great conversation. I believe strongly Middletown will continue to win and move up, time will tell, of course I could be wrong

Wrong Tab did coach his kid's - You don't know your facts!

Its all over in two months,there are only 3 or 4 teams that will play at a level that will matter and those rosters are full,so enjoy your summer at fort dix.

Why any parent who put their daughter with DM and his reputation is beyond me. NJCSA is insane for risking his inappropriate behavior. A leopard never loses it's spots.

That's true about 3 or 4 competing at the highest level... And they will not be at fort dix for sure ... Those days are over for the stronger clubs. It's now time for regional games at tournaments and local rivalry during league play outside of that freehold, njx, NJCSA, wildcats will be at each others playing in tournaments that mount up to squat simply bragging rights for the blog.

What I see going on right now is a lot of movement with some very good players. People are lining up with teams that have the energy, trainers, experience and contacts to get into the major northeast showcases next year. NJX, Wildcats, IGFA,NJCSA, 3 PDAs all will have teams in top 10 in NJ. That gets them into 1st or 2nd bracket of tourneys and they will be competing against each other and the other comparable teams in region 1. It’s going to be fun to watch with all these girls getting better. That’s the places to be for people not on the ECNLs

Lots of new players are going to tryout for TSF too. Will be a much stronger team next season and working on ECNL status. You should check them out , great coach and great players!

NJX with new coach will be even stronger than this season. Already this season the team is high level and way stronger than freehold or brick. Even Barons ( killed all these teams)

Strongest teams in state next season:
NJCSA ( collecting all freehold and brick best players because they want to go to next level. It is already happening and that is a fact)
NJX with new top level coach
Freehold with new coach
Wildcats solid and getting stronger
3 pda teams that keep recruiting more players

All the other teams are not going to be able to compete with the above.

9:31 is a troll . NJX parent here and can tell you not one of our parents thinks this way. We have a long way to go to get to the level we think the girls are capable of but we think this is a step in the right direction. We are not way stronger than any of thise teams listed above post (barons Brock freehold)and can be beaten by them any given day . We hope the new coach will bring a fresh face to the girls on game day and bring a level of professionalism to the sideline and to the team as we move to u-15.

Showcases are but one avenue to recognition. Arguably not the best - coaches are looking at multiple games / players and if there isn't a 1-sheet player profile handout for the coaches, they won't even know who / where to look.

Plenty of town teams place players, but absolutely if you have "PDA" on the resume, it's a big deal - let's not kid ourselves.

On another note, transition from U14 to U15 is big - a lot of teams fold, and obviously there is a lot of movement. I know it's all speculation, but are there really some top teams in jeopardy? I was honestly surprised by Americans and NJ Force Crush, and that was last year.

Typically lower level teams fold. What teams are truly in jeopardy?

TSF to ecnl is not happening their current team of 12 has at least 6 girls trying out with outher clubs. Their coach was afraid to play GFA in the fall. Not for me.

I want to make sure I am correct on this. Freeholds best players are going to NJCSA but Freehold will be a top team next year because of a new coach. Logic here?
