1:49 June 28 - - Match Fit is far from 2nd rate... If my daughter won the National Championship that would be a lifetime event. Instead a shallow, 2-bit idiot like yourself tries to minimize it.What is wrong with you?You are a complete loser and you should have never had kids.Lord knows the issues you have with your own kids... you are pathetic sub-animal.Grow up moron.
All the hate on this board is comical and sad. Everyone on here tries to minimize any success that any NJ team has. I just don't get it. My daughters team (GFA) is usually the target of choice on this site. I know some of the kids on both PDA & MF and I'm very proud of them all. You represented NJ well.
Match Fit is second rate. The girls that play at Match Fit are not.Congrats to the girls on their win.
Match fit team better than PDA hands down. Stop being arrogant and accept the defeat. You are not a good team. Style of play is ugly.
I thought IGFA no longer existed as of a few weeks ago.
I heard there were over 200 college coaches at the ECNL playoffs. How many college coaches watched your kid's games this week?
5:48 yes for you it doesn't exist anymore. Focus on something else . God forbid you restart again.
Match Fit is a 2nd rate club, No developing AT all. Coach DB has not developed one player throughout his years, every player was brought in from another club then DB takes Credit. Personally his is a used car salesman. Attended several practices and most of the time he is on the phone and the girls just play, correct just play. Nothing like PDA or GFA. Stay far away of Match Fit and DB
Well if that's the you feel about MF then the owner should know what's happening with his club, the NPL League and the ENCl League.....if he doesn't represent the club or leagues well and leaves a trail of non performace then he's doing a great disservice to the club, the players, the league and to the sport. There's no room in any sport for coaches to act without integrity or professionalism and they shouldn't have any power over the future of players.
PDA is no better.
Training at gfa lol...that's a good one,why are all the girls that leave say the training stinks? and they leave for PDA and MF?where they train with the best?
639Go beat the wildcats,then tell us how you are national champs.So sad, you think you are something.
9:53 Igfa doesn't exist anymore so why so much hate? MF and PDA are the teams to be with. Best training , leagues and coaches . No need to talk about anything else.
Flames what happened at Regionals? 4-1 loss to Stronghold!?
12:29 Karma! They got beat by some of their former '00's that they were so quick to discard.
Wildcats is great club and yes my daughter has played there for couple of years. They have the pro-am team as well. Nice fields, nice location and not that expensive in comparison. It is high level, npl play, with the best in country and region. I can certainly tell you this, they CARE. That word is very, very hard to find these days. Coaches that CARE.
12:51 It's okay to call their youth teams "true" academy teams as they are a feeder for the WPSL team.
Just heard that Sky Blue-PDA got a DA as well as PF and Washington Spirit. Only ones in this area right now. Any confirmation on this?
oh and Boston Breakers, too.
Makes sense, 3:46.In the end the interesting thing will be seeing who applied and was turned away
FC Copa NPL beat STA 0-0, 5-4 on pk's to win US Club Mid Atlantic Regional U15G Super Group and qualified for US Club Nationals in Colorado.
Let the exodus begin.
Have fun with that potential academy schedule.PDA, and penn fushion...next closest games Boston?, Cincinnati?, CASL?Get your frequent flyer miles ready.
I'm sorry did you say the wildcat coaches care? Are we talking about their crazy doc? You might think it's cheap because you are one of the ones that he lets play for free or has given a big discount to because you came with a group. I was paying more than 2x other people on my team which is why I left that nut house. Doc is a snake oil salesman that likes to scream at the girls. But somehow you think he cares. He could not even field a team to go to NPL finals because the team backed out. No one cares there. Why play NPL and not go to nationals? Why even be part of a team like that. Go back to town ball then. This was a waste of my time.
Congrats to the lone Copa team out of 12 Copa teams entered into the Regionals to actually win the regional.
@5:02 - no different than what ECNL does already. It's a great opportunity. Should be fun!
Wow. Copa STA sounds like some great D and goal keeping.
At 5. Wildcats have u14 and 15 going to Nationals. Most docs are crazy and coaches. Get used to it. As long as my daughter is very happy
What happened to the mighty PDA Splash in the ECNL playoffs?
PDA ECNL U15Metro Division W (11) L (0) T (5) GF (24) GA (3) GD (21)CA - ECNL events W (1) L (3) T (2) GF (7) GA (10) GD (-3)two different teams much better in their league where they play the local ECNL teams
Splash were likely missing players as wellToo expensive? Too hot? Too long a season?Whats with these Jersey teams?- I think anyone not planning to attend 2017 Nationals should notify their team now.
I dont think so, but nice try.The whole reason you play in the ECNL and push hard to win the league is to play in the top bracket at the ECNL playoffs. I am sure they had their full roster.Truth is that team was built to win this year. A majority of players are on the 2000 side, let's see how they adapt to U17 next year, while the PDA Storm (2001's)come up to U16. Even tho they have 2 or 3 national team players they did not win the conf. PDA doc push can only take you so far, you still have to play the games.
How does the U16 (I assume they will keep the Storm name - or is it Splash?) look this season?I heard of only one top U14 moving over (from STA)
First girls DA clubs announced. Looks to be all ecnl clubs and what is sky blue PDA? http://www.topdrawersoccer.com/club-soccer-articles/us-soccer-unveils-first-girls-da-clubs_aid39396?utm_source=TopDrawerSoccer+Newsletter&utm_campaign=9851e1916d-General_7_1_16&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_8340315a79-9851e1916d-32723161
I heard Splash coach took a bunch of players who weren't on the team or in the club to the playoffs. Didn't work out so well.
Rumor BB coming back to coach Splash next year.
He is . He has being missed
Anyone has results from region 1
if what 7:40 is saying is true - how would the below GDA comment apply? Does it? If true I think it's poor behavior and if the club allowed this to happen then shame on them - but in the big picture it doesn't matter if you are in with the in crowd I guess, if true.The competitive framework will focus on the core values of the program, which emphasizes quality coaching and teaching in a POSITIVE learning environment for players with ZERO tolerance for poor behavior from coaches.

I wouldn't let my daughter play for the Wildcats if it was free... Coach does nothing but scream and yell complete lunatic... Look at the rosters many have left because of him.
How does a Copa team go to NPL finals? Am I missing something when a NJ wildcats or SJEB should represent NJ with the other NJ teams. Shouldn't you win a final or be a runner up to think you are good enough to go. No better teams to be asked anywhere outside NJ????? C'mon
4:41 Does this really bother you? Maybe those teams you mentioned declined. Why don't you give those teams a call and find out for all of us. I hope this doesn't ruin your holiday. Maybe you should just worry about you own daughters team. The Copa team will be there for 2 weekends in a row. Stop on by and say hello.
Copa team in any national final is a joke. They can't even win their own edp division so they enter the weak Mid Atlantic tournament year after year so they can try qualifying for this joke of a "National Championship". Then we can all check this blog and read the comments from the two daddies that post non-stop as they have for the last 3-4 years.

Copa were better 2 years ago when they got to NPL Finals. They had better coaching and a much deeper roster. This time around they will get a big shock and the teams they are playing aren't even as good as who they played at U13.
101 pmI must say that region 1 league can play with any team at this age in the country, cant wait to see how it all plays out
Region 1 can definitely play with the best of them if you include PDA , MFA fc stars the likes of penn, bucks, va ecnl , premiere strikers did I miss anyone? WC ECNL NYSC manhattan? Barons? Which teams have not had success outside of the region?
"joke of a national championship" you say? Because your daughters team didnt earn it!!!!!
No, just because that's what it is. The best teams in the country aren't there so it's a joke plain and simple. You disagree?
HBC wins Region1 Final0 Princeton SA IGFA 00/01 (NJ)1 HBC Impact 00 (NY-E)8:45 I agree it's a joke - it's a buy your way in National championship. Forget about best teams.USYSA sends their best 4 teams from their top league (National League) plus their 4 regional champions, teams can only play in regional champions if they qualified for them.US Club send select state cup winners to nationals instead of regional. The regional event is a PAY to PLAY event win 3 or 4 games and go to Nationals that my friend is a joke and why I agree.The ECNL national title is just a league title as is the NPL championship,nothing special there.US Club you want to make your cup special with GDA here now send your Final 4 ECNL teams and your NPL Champion to the National Cup in addition to the 5 regional champions and you might have something better than USYSA, until then the only real National title is the USYSA title that HBC just qualified for
The best teams did try to get to Colorado, just didnt make it. So they are the best?
"Welcome to the NON ECNL National Championships!"Better?
ECNL is the National Championship. NPL is AAA. ECNL is the majors.
No they are the sameECNL is a league that has a National ChampionshipNPL is a league that has some ECNL club B teams because only one team per ECNL club is allowed that also has a National Championship.MLB is a league that has a "World" Series, does this mean it's the same as the "World" cup? Nope just a brand and a closed league championship.MLS has a championship D1as does the NASL D2But then we have the lamar hunt open cup where the champion goes to the CONCACAF Championship and the winner goes to the federations cup toplay the champion of Europe and other federations the true championship.
Too many so-called National Champions. Not all the best teams are ECNL or NPL since most Clubs cannot get that status but you want to say Wildcats, TSF, NJ Rush, Copa, NJCSA & Jersey United are better then other top teams that don't have the NPL after them is foolish. Take all the leagues & put their champions vs each other to really see who is best but ECNL & NPL will never do that because if they lose as PSA/GFA-NPL just lost to HBC Impact in NY with no NPL team. If ECNL & NPL did that & didn't win they can't convince everyone they are better. NPL uses ECNL players in their games to help them win something a small Club could not ever do. Until then there will be a US Club, NPL, ECNL & USYS National Champions.
Final today was with class both ways. Coaches and players . Great fight on the field and lots of respect in and off the pitch .Well done
How many college scouts were at this titanic matchup between HBC and IGFA?
You should ask how many there will be when both of them play the national league next year? By far the most important league in the country . And titanic is only your stupidity
As predicted, no scouts in attendance. Now check any ECNL playoff game and you will see them lined up. Anyone who doesn't think that ECNL doesnt attract the most major scouts, is just clueless.
This particular event is not a big recruiting event add to the mix it is in the sticks in west virginia on 4th of July weekend doesn't lend itself to be a very attractive spot for college coaches. Other usys events like the nationals and every national league event are just as well attended as any ecnl event. I have been to many ecnl events and usys events.

That was in addition to the Qualified teams for National League that was earlier posted
Interesting how there is only one NJ player in the IMG 150 on Topdrawer soccer for the grad year 2019. PDA alone normally has about 4-7 on the list for previous grad years plus a few other NJ girls from other clubs. Is this just a weak grad year for the state or have the clubs not identified the right players to send to these national events?Have the elite NJ clubs merely begun identifying athletes that THEY think give them the best chance to win now at the expense of the technically sound player that stands out at these events?I would love to hear your thoughtful replies on this topic.
Players self report to places like TDS (not colleges). The players are probably too busy playing soccer to declare where they have decided to go.
Top drawer does not include all players. You are telling us that all the best players are Id and recognized by img top drawer. It all politics same with these da, ecnl, NPL blah blah... Put the ball down and play that's it. Girls play soccer for the love if they are looking to go national or pro ... Parents are putting eggs in the wrong basket. The results, and how they play is all I need. The last thing I need to worry about is a political bureaucratic evaluation tool ranking kids as the next superstar. That's a racket and very profitable one too.
2:05 You expect 19s to have verbally committed by now? You are what's wrong with soccer nowadays. Complaining only 1 '19 has verbally and therefore NJ is on a decline through lack of quality players or appropriate ID methods. Why not just ask a kid to commit to a school and major at U8?Until the system changes you have 2 options right now: get your kid on the top ECNL team or have your kid guest play all over America so these college coaches can "id" her.
You also posted your idiotic statement 6 minutes after the game link was posted. So how did you watch a 90 minute game in 6 minutes?You're such a low-life - I almost feel embarrassed for you.
352 Because those that posted do not subscribe to TDS and do not realize how much of a tool it can be used for when the time comes when college recruitment and looking at schools for your kids helps. For example (Penn State has 3 girls and NC has 4 girls verbal committed from the 2019 HS grad class but they cannot see it unless they subscribe. Information like that helps a whole lot when your daughter is looking at schools and they are already halfway through the recruiting class so any parent will want to see there true chances of even getting on the schools want list.
Good info but my kid nor yours is going to top off Penn State or NC
We were to attend the Penn State ID camp but it fell on a bad weekend.No reason to rule such things out so early.
TDS is like anything else out there...another source; like this blog. Use them along with other sources to get your info on commits, rankings of schools, etc.
1237 agree but there are reliable true data sources vs. gossip sources. This blog is like the TMZ of soccer.
Hahahaha, agreed. But, some good tips provided herein (if you dig through the crapola). TDS is a good source for general information (so is SoccerWire and a few others). Some of these seem to favor some clubs more than others, though. So, sort of TMZish, too, as reporting is all opinion based. :)
PDA Gunners just beat Real Col in double OT 1-0. Great game (live streamed through ECNL). Clutch goal by PDA in last 2 mins. of second OT. Congrats PDA.Says something about soccer in our Region folks (PDA and FC Stars were in final four) and also says something about Northeast Division of ECNL (one of the toughest in the country; playing both PDA and FC Stars). Good stuff!
Isn't this the only PDA team to advance this far? What does this say exactly?we have 1 NJ going to finals out of a possible 5 age groups?
How is this ant different from HBC? going to USYSA Nationals.
244 PDA Gunner Coach is outstanding. Splash coach is clueless, doesn't know what he is doing. That is the difference. Coaching is huge.
Finally I could see this PSA GFA playing - see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-V9pCw7hFY - the regional finals with HBC. What a joke!!!At least nobody has to guess anymore, just have a look. No comments needed.
Why GFA coach would let his team/girls score 11 goals against a team in regional finals? I don't know a coach who would do it at this level? What a shame!!! Karma hit this team back couple days later in the finals.
4:20 what's the joke. Watched a good portion of that game just like any college or nwsl game you would see on TV. The girls tried to play the game there were some good sequences and some bad, sorry but not seeing the joke. I think both teams can beat Splash and both can lose to Splash. What am I missing, for some one who never saw this team you are quick to bash?PS. Thanks for the link.

Thanks for the GDA update. So, in Region 1, added to PDA, PF and Breakers are Spirit, East Meadow, World Class, Match fit, FC VA and FC Stars (which i was very surprised was not in first round based on the amount of YNT kids id'd in their club). I thought Washington Spirit was in last round.Very interesting.
So that would be 4 GDA's in the Northeast Metro Divison alone and we play Stars, Breakers, East Meadow in league play. I guess US Soccer considers this a good division for player development. Nice.
July 9, 2016 at 4:20 PMI am an HBC parent and I can only say what I saw first hand. I think IGFA had some weak games in the preliminary round, they have no control of that. in a tournament like this it is not easy to make a decision to back off the team because it can come back to bite your team in the butt if advancement comes down to criteria. They did play a very motivated opponent in the semi's they had to wait an extra hour to play the game. The finals our girls scored early and our coaches decided to force them to work extra hard to advance the ball into our zone (Its not a style we normally play) but this type of event is a survival of the fittest contest. At no point during the match did I see their girls get frustrated or did i ever see their coach get out of line. (I have seen some of that in other games) what I did witness was a group of girls who must have been exhausted after playing 5 games in 5 days, in hot humid conditions, play their hearts out. I stated earlier on this board that the coach and particularly the ladies were beyond gracious and classy at the awards ceremony.
PSA GFA will have tough time to keep up. 12 players left the team since last year. And now the team will be practically playing up - gu17. Good Luck!
Thanks 11:54 - I like one stop shops - I hate extra work that's why no links from me. You will see many stupid posts from me with results and rankings as I want to concentrate more on the team aspect. This is a very important time for the kids as they try and figure stuff out - I won't add to that just having fun no bragging. I will post GDA, ECNL, USYSA NL, EDP NPL, NYCSL NPL, NewEngland NPL, NorthEast NPL and the Eastern Regional League. These are my favorites nothing against CCL, NEP, LIJSL, NYPL or EDP. I just like quests for a national title. Plus tournament results galore - I know they are showcase events that are for the players but someone still has to win the game, So don't hate people you think are posting or you can hate -it's just me Mr. IdiotThanks 12:29 - for those that want the complete write upThanks 4:20 for sharing - I never understood why people can hate so much when all we are talking about is youth soccer.

B'Elite must be very angry watching NJ Elite play with their best player!
Why would B'Elite be angry if one of their players is with NJ Elite - either they werent good enough for BB or BB didn't walk the talk.
What is going on with Match Fit.....I guess they only care about ENCL players and teams....the hell with NPL players.....pretty soon it will be Match Fit who
9:43 You wish -they will be GDA starting the 17/18 season. They will get a ton of interested players at their tryouts. With free Scholarships for a few and PDA only able to take 10 or so per age group should be very interesting1. MF GDA2. MF ECNL3. MF NENPL
11:14 organization of DB is awefull. DB will never be able to follow USA guidelines. The most unorganized person out there. US will mandate clubs to follow curriculum and have proper staffing. We all KNOW MF lost their best staff over the last 3 years. Ones left are horrible. National Coach they are advertising HAS no experience of coaching
MF lost there boys DA so hopefully they learned a lesson and the girls side get's organized moving in GDA.
NJ Elite grabbed MF best defender and B'Elite best player! Just changed the 01 team for the better. Might be best 01 team in the state with the best coach.
NJ Elite first place in top bracket at CJI, Santos looking better with 4 wins, 4 shut outs and winning other bracket. Great job to both teams if you ask me.
@3:46 pm. - wow...sounds like someone you would never want coaching your kid (wink, wink). She sounds amazing. Hermann Trophy is no joke. Thanks for the info.
Not all players are good coaches. This is why MICHAEL Jordan or Magic Johnson could not teach oThers.
So this is what you do when your kids' have a sleep over and you are up late...check the soccer blog. LOLAnyway, 9:59 - you are correct. Not all good players make good coaches. However, the majority do. But, the MF coach above referenced certainly has the credentials to succeed. The poster re MF was complaining that this person had no prior coaching experience. Gotta start somewhere and the experience could be well worth it. If you have a coach with that type of playing experience, I would wait and see and not throw a stone until it is warranted. That's it.
1 06 as a former pro player, I disagree with you statement. A vast majority of high end players DO NOT become good coaches. As players, we are able to perform drills but are weakness is to be able to break it down for players to understand how to drills. We expect players to just understand how it should be done.
Flames coach is the best!
7:40 - I have been around pro players my entire life (in a variety of sports) and my experience has been quite different. Anyway, hopefully you would agree, that to cast doubt on someone before they have had an opportunity to prove themselves with those playing credentials would be somewhat premature.
10 57, you and I do agree with your last post
If we had our best player we would be going to TX
Shout out to NJ's Union SC Crimson Tide representing Region I this weekend in the USYS National Presidents Cup championship in Tulsa. The Presidents Cup offers teams from smaller clubs or less intense programs the challenge of experiencing different types of play by competing from state to regional to national levels. The Presidents Cup provides teams with a progressive, competitive experience that highlights competition, camaraderie and community.
Congrats to Union!

The troll is jealous because your daughter's team can pack it can play with us and can't get it done continue to hate and we will continue to make it happen
7:56 I know got the same comments when I did the ECNL updates and Region1 updates. Enjoy your summer because these posts will continue to come for 2001s.Just to recap; major summer Tournaments since you love the posts so much.ECNL FINAL 41. Slammers2. FC Stars of Massachusetts3. West Coast4. Mustang SCUSYSA Region1 FINAL 41. HBC Impact 002. Princeton SA IGFA 00/013. Premier Strikers4. CFC North WolvesNPL Finals - FINAL 220.127.116.11.USYSA National Championships18.104.22.168.US Club National Cup22.214.171.124.I don't cover the Presidents Cup because it is designed for those teams seeking additional challenges to play against teams of similar abilities for a national title. It provides a competitive experience to teams that might not otherwise get the opportunity to participate in a series of unique experiences if they played in NCS
NPL finals is like a weak summer tournaments. Spent $1000s for a joke competition. Coaches will tell parents/players that they are like ECNL finals. With one difference - No college coaches in the side lines.
Once again troll keep hating. As daughter sits home with their delusional father who worries more about other people's children and not their own. It's so sad. Why worry so much about what other teams do. Aren't you happy guesting for the redbulls, or are you that superstar who has committed to Penn State... Or the upset parent who's team moved to Morristown?? Go grill some hotdogs and let them play. No one really cares. I'll entertain your sad mindset because you look foolish talking to yourself over and over again.
Re a point raised above, is this strictly an 01 or an 00 blog, now? Will the title change to reflect the correct age group (so the group and what they experience will travel with that group)? Curious that's all.
Copa daddy - why no update on all the games standings today?
Best of luck to PSA in NPL semis tomorrow. Jersey strong!!!!!
7:48 I am assuming you are talking to me since I am the only one posting updates. Here you goU15 Final 4Princeton SA-Igfa 00-01 vsEmpire SCNVSC Jr. Majestics '00 vsOakwood SC Attack
Empire SC in NPL finals semis? Wow - what a competition!
Congrats to IGFA for making the finals. The competition must be somewhat disappointing for them seeing that both Premier Strikers and HBC gave them much better games during the regional Tournament. I would guess they are happy they qualified for the national league as NPL is very weak.
I thought igfa is now PSA.Why still all the gfa talk.When does new regime take over.I heard they will run a lot more professional show.I only hope for the parents that didn't leave.
Npl finals - seriously - ridiculous. I hope parents see it. Otherwise, they are out of reality.
Why worry so much about Gfa. Go grill some hotdogs. They are fine still playing and having fun. They play whoever is willing to play and compete. EDP, NPL ECNL NATIONAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SUPER Y RPL FUTSAL ETC.... So why you worry about what they do Win loose or draw the girls love every second of it. Some games are close and others are not. Remember Germany and Brazil 8-1 did anyone knock Germany or how about the women's national team when they blow people out do they say who cares??? Gfa is making the other teams better too by showing them there is lot more work that needs to be done. So keeping hoping these girls will fade away. they won't they just get stronger even when girls leave. They have played the best and worst over the last five years and they are still getting better and developing. Learning, networking traveling and seeing the country. What are you doing blogging? Get a life and show respect and get a life GFA!!!
One trick pony....why is she still there?
GFA plays too muchBeware the injury bug
Think Copa dad woke up and realized his club is pimping out his personal wallet for Got Soccer points? Who goes out to a "Nationals" and wins 1 game? They could do that at home. Oh wait. Ft. Dix doesn't carry as many GS points as NPL Nationals. At least PSA-IGFA won all 4 games. Oh snap! Copa's playing in US Club Nationals too. Also in Colorado. Same place. Let's hope the two week investment gets Copa Dads DD's team more wins and GS points!!Roma is #4 in NJ right now. Those GS points will lead to some serious Copa bragging rights about NJ rank despite winning 1 game. There is something seriously wrong when the #4 team in NJ can only win 1 game at "Nationals."Better to cheer on the legit than the fake.
Gotsoccer points?FC Copa played 44 games vs PDA Splash and their 33 games.orFC Copa played 10 State/Regional/National games - PDA Splash 3 gamesFC Copa played 21 EDP games vs PDA Splash playing 24 ECNL gamesFC Copa played 13 Showcase games vs PDA Splash playing 6How is this a bad thing? I see their kids having many opportunities to play minutes.
Copa played very wellMaybe SCORES guy, instead of just regurgitating from other websites, can give some insight on how Empire and Oakwood advanced over Copa.thx
9:50 Yes, I was talking about you. Why didn't we get the Saturday night update with all the teams still alive and all the days' scores? Maybe because your team was eliminated again at the "Joke National Championship"?
#4 team in NJ only wins one game at Nationals and you think that is horrible? It is Nationals for a reason, the best teams play and it is easy to play well and win no games.
Copa only gave up 1 goal in 3 games at NPL Finals. They tied for first in their group with Empire. The semifinalist was determined by pks, Empire won 6-5 after 9 rounds.
6:54 am - Why are you comparing yourself to PDA? You're not in their league.
8:56 or maybe I was in old howard beach at my cousins party for his kids part, what's your beef with that pal?9:02 I agree PDA Splash only won 1 game at national why do they get a bye? Oh because they dominated their ECNL conf vs local ECNL teams, got it.9:19 thanks for the update.10:00 Why does it make you mad - that I already proved PSA & NJ Stallions are options in NJ and If I prove Copa is also - that would be 3 NON-ECNL teams in NJ that are legit. Oh don't cry. PDA had 17 teams that could win a national title with one title -Copa still playing for 2. Don't worry plenty of $$$ to go around always a parent willing to pay.
11:01 Nailed it. Copa about winning. PDA about getting players onto nationals teams and good Division I squads. Enjoy Colorado.
Thanks 9:19Again - nice showing by CopaHaving come in second after the PKs , how did Oakwood then advance as best second place team?Copa vs GFA would have been a nice show.
Flight winnersPSA 9 ptsNVSC 7 ptsEmpire SC 5ptsbest 2nd place teamOakwood 6ptsOther 2nd place teamsFC Copa 5ptsPDA 4ptsDon't sleep on oakwood - going to be good at U16. Their current u14 teams one of the better teams in the region
9:19 What you're missing is, they only scored TWO goals in three games!!! The team that represented their division in the semis got smoked 6-0, what does that tell you?
PSA 2-0 over Oakwood in the finals. Congrats, way to represent NJ. Not sure the 9-0 game was all that classy but congrats on the title.
Coach Genius at it again with GFA. Just a genius.
Didn't wildcats win npl,then drop out so copa could back in?cant even win in nj....joke
FEEE FIIIII FOOOOOO FUUUUMM what a season fun fun fun see you next year haters!!! Nappy nap time😘

New debate... NJ TeamsWho is the best coach that has worked in this age group? Past or present? If you asked your daughter who her favorite coach was ever... Who would she say? Put the team number below at the start of your reply. 1 - GFA2 - SJEB3 - STA4 - Stallions5 - Copa6 - NJ Elite 7 - Brick/WildcatsCoaches don't get enough credit... Let's hear it for the coaches!

Let's not start trouble with that. It is about the girls . You are just a troll with an agenda, you are trying to find an angle of attack. The administrator has been pay attention to all you write . Finally.
@July 19, 2016 at 8:15 AMThat'a great questions but here is my list based on what you have:NJ Elite- coach has had majority of those girls since U10 and are some of the top players in the age groupSJEB- same thing! That group has been together for a long time and has been one of the best teams in the state for a long time.COPA- coach seems to have a knack for finding and developing talent. They never slip too far in the rankings and always remain relevant.Brick/Wildcats- I put them in the same category as SJEB.STA- If it is the female coach I think she's great. Former player who understands the game and works well with the girls. Everybody who's ever had her as a coach never stops raving about her.Stallions- most of this team was the former Americans who had an excellent coach. Can't give this guy too much credit for developing anybody but this team is always relevant and very good.IGFA- this is the best team in the state regardless of what your opinion is but that man is not a coach. He cannot run training sessions and has always used trainers to develop those girls.
Lol see? Expected. Ok now you put the question out and you answered . hope you are happy for having achieved the goal of your miserable day.lol
855amYou are clueless,can tell you are new.The best coach at this age was Big Bird,may have been a tool,but the best coach....
8:55 past or present... Not just present
Really?? The Wildcats in the same breath as SJEB? You must be thinking of the original Brick team, or you're nuts.
NPL is not close to the ECNL. GFA has no business playing the Slammers without getting through FC Stars, West Coast, Concrde Fire, Top Hat, PDA etc.
PDA has no business with the team's you mentioned. They did poorly in national ecnl finals.
Every coach above IGFA runs their own training sessions. They don't hire trainers. They personally have developed their girls. Can IGFA coach say the same? No! He's a manager, not a coach. If you think managing and coaching are the same thing then you need to learn about sports in general. Again, that post did not knock the IGFA team. It is a great team and probably best in state in that age group but the question was about who had the best coach. Not which owner spends the most money.
7:59 we got it, all good, you achieved your goal of the day. You can be happy , got your fix of the day. Now you only have to find another question so you can answer yourself to manage to trash that coach again tomorrow. I am sure you will find something. You always do. Unfortunately.
1. My daughter plays on IGFA. She has never been trained by anyone except the current coach with the exception of a very few practices that he has had to miss. She has developed into a player far beyond what we ever thought she had in her. He trains them and he coaches them as a team.I am not sure where you are getting your information.2. GFA plays in NPL because as we all know they are not eligible to play in ECNL. However they take every opportunity to play in tournaments where they face those top ECNL teams. Sometimes they win, sometimes they don't but the competition is always good.Look at the results of the PDA showcase. Say what you want, but this is a talented group, coach included. NPL is the best league for teams that don't have the option to play in ECNL. So this team won the national title for the league that they play in.That deserves criticism?3. If there was a one trick pony, they could not succeed in all that they do, often without key players. They are a team. More so than any team that my daughter has ever played on.4. No idea what your issue is, but the above are facts from the inside.5. No one knows for sure who will dominate next year. Remember, the current U16s will be losing their 99s. Regardless though of where GFA will fall, this coach has them hungry for the challenge. That's a huge win.
I have no idea why IGFA get slaughtered on here all the time. The highest league they can play in is the NPL...so they won the NPL National Championship. That is a good thing...no?? They are not eligible to play in the ECNL...but we all know how that goes. They do however play the top ECNL & non-ECNL teams all of the time at tournaments. And they win against those teams more than they lose. And yes...they have done this, for the most part...without all of their key pieces for these games. The coach does a tremendous job and the girls work hard and has shown depth. It should be applauded...not belittled. I listed some results against the "best of the best". Pretty impressive:PDA Splash - 3-1 (W)World Class ECNL - 1-0 (W)FC Stars ECNL - 4-5 (L)CASL ECNL - 2-1 (W) Cincinnati Cup - 0-4 (L)Bethesda ECNL - 1-4 (L)Dallas Kicks - 1-0 (W)Penn Fusion - 2-1 (W)Bethesda ECNL - 2-1 (W)Cincinnati Cup - 2-0 (W)and a 4-2 overall record against HBC.7-3 against those teams is not too shabby.
7:37 PDA has poor coaching at this age group. U16 coach is among the best anywhere.
12:56 Great list. Impressive. Congrats to IGFA. Great run and year!
Gotta admit those are pretty good results versus the supposed best of the best. In fact, of the three losses they have, they avenged them and beat the team the second time around. Pretty impressive.
12:56, 10:18, 1:46 = All the same person. Keep talking to yourself, Nobody else cares.
2:03...WRONG. I wrote one of them and not the other two.
