U16 Girls Youth Soccer

U16 girls soccer takes no prisoners--they are well trained and fiercely competitive. 

Looking for stars in the making? 

Look no further.

I doubt the majority of parents on here are hoping that any top players switch clubs and attend their child's club DA tryouts. At this age it isn't about the score. Sure it's always a bonus to win and watch your kids team be successful but it's really about the player and being seen at this point. The players of one DA club will be seen as much as the next regardless of which team wins a game. Parents should want their kid to be on the field playing while scouts are looking on, not watching from the bench. It's not U14 anymore. The starting 11 on ANY DA team will have offers coming their way.

4:05 I totally agree with you. Funny thing is that some of the 02 parents actually believe Tina when he says he's going to do an even split with the age groups for the DA, even though he has already let them know his four player from the Westmont School are already on the DA team. But don't worry girls, he also said that he'll promote four players while their playing HS ball at Westmont in the fall, so there's hope for some playing time. It must be the truth because we all know that Tino would never fib about anything soccer related!

4:05 - laughable.

Im aware of more than just those 4 who already know they not only made the DA team but are top 10. That's the club for you.

Anonymous said...

Any DOC or coach who says there will be an even split of 01's and 02's next year is FOS. If an 02 is not a top 3 player on their current team plan to see your kid warm the bench next year.

8:50 Not sour at all as my daughter is in a great situation right now and we feel extremely fortunate. I do feel for any parents that are experiencing this level for the first time with their oldest or maybe only child. Its easy to believe someone who is telling you exactly what you want to hear about your daughter. There are very few coaches that are truly vested in the teams they coach and right from the beginning tell you what your daughter weaknesses are, versus what she does well. As for club directors, lets remember that they are running a business and need to keep them checks coming. And besides, is it really telling a lie when there's a couple shred's of truth in a statement?
11:46
You are right on the money. But that's exactly what Tino told everyone at the town hall meeting and he would never mislead parents that way.

Checks dont come if you do a lousy job. And pissing off parents doesnt help.

Why would you be pissed off? Other places to go if not happy. Someone would gladly take your spot.

Just saw this posted on blog. Is this why 2001 Cedar Stars Team had a different coach on Saturday and Sunday?
"Major report of inappropriate behavior(drinking alcohol in room with players) with Cedar Stars Coach being sent home in middle of Jefferson Cup and another Cedar Stars Coach sent to coach team for rest of weekend. The first report we heard was there would bee a suspension of the coach but then our coach was on the practice field this week so waiting to see if it will be swept under the rug by Cedar Stars Club".

Timing couldn't be worse for the club.

Anonymous said...

How is that coach allowed to be with kids? Why didn't the parents pull their kids from the field when he showed up?

Anonymous said...

Can someone confirm that Cedar Stars 2001 coach didn't finish Jefferson Cup with team last weekend?

You cant - nor can 2:19 - thus you really shouldnt be talking about it

Its true or they would have issued immediate denials. Everyone noticed the coaching change down there last weekend in mid tournament.

Hey 10:15 why couldn't those other explanations be plausible? Were you there? Some of the info on this blog is hogwash.

Anonymous said...

Evidently there is a picture on social media of the incident. It was deleted but once the pictures are online they are always available. Also news of the incident is making the rounds among our parents on various teams at the club. The parent who made the original complaint is very upset that his daughter was put in this position. This will not go away. In the past a 5 year suspension followed when this happened with a coach and his teenage players at an away tournament.

Yikes. Good luck.

That post didn't blame the players....read again. Merely brought up the question regarding the players. As a parent I'd be pushing for coach to be fired. But I would also have a lengthy discussion with my daughter if she were involved. These aren't toddlers....

I have no problem blaming the players and their families.

Just the latest chapter in a long long list.

Anonymous said...

I don't know the coach or the team, but is the story that he was drinking in a room that te kids were also in, or he and the kids were drinking together in a room? Because the first wouldn't bother me so long as several kids were in the room or the door was open; if it's the second, then firing or at least a very long suspension seems appropriate.

Anonymous said...

Story is in room drinking, but girls were not drinking. I guess it depends. If coach is in my room drinking and watching basketball, and I am sitting next to him. And then on another chair/couch my daughter is sitting there with two players it is no issue obviously (and not drinking). But rumors spread no matter what you do. And btw my daughter would never drink and I am positive none of her team mates would

Anonymous said...

Add that he was sitting there in his whitey tighties drinking pbr and you have a great reality show

Anonymous said...

If the parent was in the room drinking with the coach while watching a basketball game when his daughter walked in then why would he have complained?That scenario is just not believable.

Anonymous said...

I will suggest the first mistake here is fraternization with the parents of the kids being coached. Who doesn't like to have a beer and watch a game, but unfortunately if your a paid coach, you just can't do it with a small group of parents or any at all. All your gaining is a chance to fracture team chemistry and allowing some parents to feel they have the "ear" of the coach. And even if it isn't true, other parents will still think it and then the rumor mill starts (playing time, positions and such).
All of us as soccer parents enjoy sitting with the coach and hearing some of the coaches thoughts on the game and possibly a nugget of how well our daughter did or what she does well. Unfortunately that info needs to come through and email or a scheduled one on one talk with your daughter present. Parents can never feel that they have some kind of ownership of the coach and coach should never feel he owes a parent more than the time he spends coaching. Coaches drinking with the team parents goes on all the time is enjoyed by both parties many times. However it only takes one bad occasion to ensure there is never another time.

Anonymous said...

If we, other parents and myself, are having a drink or hanging with the coaches, I make it a point to never discuss the game or soccer. They and I do have other interests. Don't you get tired talking about work after you left the office? They are no different.

That said, I don't think a coach should ever go to any room of a parent and/or kid; unless there is a medical emergency and they are needed. The coach doesn't need any headache that may result. Sit in the lobby and watch a game; go to a restaurant; any thing then going to a kid's room with them there. Just bad decision making on coach and the parent that invited. Smarten up!

Very well said. It's called boundaries. We need to have them and teach our daughters those as well. One of my daughters' coaches gave permission to be called by first name. I absolutely disagreed. We need to teach the respect and professionalism.

Anonymous said...

Wonder what 1776 mom would say... I miss her

Anonymous said...

5:55 Whole heartily agree with the first name issue. Our coach also said the girls could call him by first name and I made a point that she puts "coach" in front of it. She's not talking to another HS student or even someone in college, its a grown man 35 plus. Maybe I'm just to old school, but I believe that by respecting others you learn to respect yourself.

Anonymous said...

Can we get back to talking soccer. I'm sure there is another blog on how to parent...

Anonymous said...

Learning respect is part of the soccer world too as well as parenting. You might try it. So, out of mutual respect, I appreciate the post.

Anonymous said...

3:03 How can you say that, you know the girls will be playing soccer forever and respect will be over in a few years? Oops, its the other way around isn't it? Instead of whining 1:42, start a thread and lets run with it.
12:28 You may not believe it, but as rough as she it during the game, she is a funny person to talk with away from it. Teams like 1776 are struggling this year because they decided to combine their 01's and 02's rather than break up. Have any NJ teams decided to do something similar?

12:52 Thanks for posting the upcoming games for both NJ and PA!!
3:12 Big Red has no limits when it come to tearing into Refs, coaches (including her own) or the other players during and after games. Has gone onto opposing players snapchat site and told them they cheated after a game and multiple times has had her own coach tell her to shut up he's getting a red card. One of the most competitive parents you would ever meet and will go nose to nose with man or women. To be fair, her kids are very good players and very respectful when talking to others after the games.
Not sure what sport she played when she was young, but whatever it was I'm sure she was intense and probably very good at it.

Penn Fusion will dominate? Dominate is not an accurate word. Do well maybe. Not as well as PDA or Virginia by any means so to say dominate is a bit wishful. They're last showing is telling that they have much to work on.

So Cal Blues SC ECNL U16
Lost 0- 9

Currently, their Conference record is 2 wins 1 draw (only 3 conference games thus far). They are in 2nd place. Top 5 go to Champs League Play offs. Next two are wild cards where getting in is based on nat'l events/out of conference play. Like other sports, weight of overall/out of conference is not as much as in conference.

ECNL tries to capture within a conference all the teams that play high school the same time. Some of the teams you mentioned are in ECNL season when many NE conference teams are in high school season. For instance, while NE teams are mostly in ECNL season, the SE teams are now playing high school.

That is why it's hard to get a real read on all the games for all the teams because some are in season, deep into league season and some aren't.

That may be another reason why GDA is taking high school out of the mix.

Let's circle back to all of this in June.


Anonymous said...

I agree. As a former coach, looking at records to draw a conclusion about a team just doesn't really work as far as game time. You don't know who played, who wasn't available that day, how much certain kids did play, in what position, etc. Some have deep rosters and have to rotate. Some kids play, some sit out and some kids move up and down rosters.

Post season is usually when this all flushes out.

I'm a euro and my team has a huge roster

They play league games
They play Cup games
They play Champions league games

Guess what the stars don't play every game but they still win.

If the kids weren't any good they wouldn't be on the roster.
Who cares who plays and who doesn't and how much they do the TEAM played.
and in soccer it's all about the TEAM not the individual player. The team has 18 role players that play to WIN nothing more nothing less. Soccer is very simple it's just hard to play simple

Was on wrong age group re blog. Saw the below. Could affect our kids if soccer adopts soon as well. Thoughts anyone? Is this going to happen in soccer and when?

"A Possible First Step in Curbing Early Recruiting?

This week, the NCAA Division I Council will vote on proposed legislation that impacts just the sport of Lacrosse, but could be the first step to reforming recruiting in all sports.

If approved, the legislation will take effect August 1, 2017 and restrict all recruiting interaction between prospects and Division I lacrosse coaches to not sooner that September 1 of a prospect’s junior year of high school.

This proposed legislation affects both phone calls and on-campus visits:

Phone Calls: The proposal would not only prohibit Division I lacrosse coaches from placing phone calls to recruits prior to September 1 of the junior year (as is the case currently), but would also prohibit them from accepting calls from recruits or the recruit’s relatives or legal guardians prior to September of junior year.

On-Campus Visits: In addition, while lacrosse recruits and their families would still be able to visit a college campus at their own expense at any time they choose, Division I coaches and athletic department staff would be prohibited from having any interaction with recruits or families making an unofficial visit if the visit occurs prior to September 1 of the recruit’s junior year of high school. The provision of complimentary admissions to a campus athletic event during an unofficial visit will also be prohibited prior to September 1 of a recruit’s junior year.

Again, if this legislation is approved, it won’t take effect until August and only impacts the sport of lacrosse at the Division I level, but it will be interesting to see if it leads to changes for other sports in the future. "

So the lax coach will just call the club coach, who will then pass on the info to the player, making more work for the club coach! This really isn't any different. Correct me if I am wrong but this doesn't change early recruiting.

PF like taking kids from other clubs to replace what they already have each year because they don’t develop players. If for some reason players coming from outside clubs don’t workout they just sit them until they quit. This is also done to deplete opposing clubs roster numbers. 30 players on a roster not knowing if you will be playing on the second team, first team or no team each weekend. It's going to be great for youth soccer! Classics DA won't be any better. Unfortunately, there isn’t a properly run girls club in the Philadelphia area. Hopefully a pro club DA isn’t too far away.

Anonymous said...

I think it will take a couple years for any of the DA clubs to get established. They will either begin attracting players or dwindle away.
So you think PF is turning away existing ECNL rostered girls and replacing them with outside players? That's cruel if you've been an existing player and have no clout.

Anonymous said...

For Penn Fusion & PDA they go back to last year's team combined 01 and 02 players.

No clout 12:33 -I thought it was about the best players from with in or external to the club? My friend that is the problem with youth soccer or maybe youth sports to many people with clout. it shouldn't matter where a kid played last year if they are one of the best 20 they should make the team. According to you they shouldn't because a player has been with the club for years and is not top 20 material should have pull.

9:59 top of the pyramid was ECNL so if they took other players they were better options and that is what they need to do as a top of the pyramid club. There should be no hate that's the name of the game. All clubs are run properly, parents want their kids at the top and there is nothing wrong with that, the only bummer is it's the top based on opinions of the people in charge of picking but is also part of the game.

5:45 they play for another team in the club or find another club at their level.

Sounds like someone who has hurt feelings, 9:59. 30 kids on a roster? Have you hit your head. TGS rosters are on ECNL website have under 20 for U16 and 20 for U15. Have you checked other rosters for other teams? These are in the smaller range.

1. PF GDA top of the pyramid 9-0 or what ever not going to change. Top 20 players from the 2002 and 2001 age group plus PAC as another equal option

2. Players not making this team can stay and might get GDA not when team goes to 2002 and 2003 for one team and 2001 and 2000 for the other team the following year or try their luck at PAC.

3. Players looking to play ECNl will have CFC Delco as an option since it looks like they will play in Dowington or FC Bucks.

4. Players on other clubs that play ODP might make the jump and will take spots away. Players with siblings that are elite might make the jump as a package deal

5. Other top players might start looking at clubs playing NL as that will be the only other option with an opportunity to play at the National level.

6. others will stay local continue to train hard working on skills and attending college ID camps.

You see an option for everyone, I'm sure other states are set up the same way.

8:54 - so what if the top on the team know who they are? That is how it works on most sports teams. That's not unique to any one club or sport; despite your assumptions.

The players who stand out; know they do. You can't hide top scorers; top w/assists; top creators of chances; top defenders; top net minders. They pretty much are easily detected in all games.
AND, also easily detected, the kids who dial down their play; don't go to the ball, don't make the runs, make repeated turnovers, check out during plays, don't show for the ball, etc.

Not a previous poster - just reading the recent posts. I'll add my honest two cents. Penn Fusion is frustrating and this may be the year my daughter decides to look elsewhere. No she is not a benchwarmer. They have one coach who I do like but he isn't either of the two in recent discussion. Those two knuckleheads don't give a damn about development. Many of the current 01 parents are desperate for their daughter to have a new coach after having the same one for 5 years. He is set in his ways, has his favorites and refuses to give opportunities to other players who are deserving.

Welcome to the world of capitalism and competition. Your daughter either rises to the top or she begins to fade away. Yes the coaches can have some of the blame but most of the work is up to your daughter.
There is NO allegiance to your daughter if she has been with same club for many seasons. A coach will always get a stiffy when he sees a new girl and feels he can "steal" her from another club.
As a parent of player in GDA club, my daughter has stood out for many seasons but I also see the coach's excitement as new players show up for training prior to our tryouts.
Some coaches develop and sustain their team, others chase the new and exciting flavor of the month.

Next years coach at PF for the DA just led his current 01's to a whopping 9-0 loss in Phoenix! That should be enough to scare most away right there. 9-0 is inexcusable.

Well, as a parent of a kid who switched clubs, it was her choice. She wanted the better players around her to challenge her and make her better. And, they have. She wanted the better overall coaching for improvement. It has.

So, she and I were just as excited about her choice of "new and exciting flavor" as they were about her.

You are not at another club's training unless you and they have interest. That's how the soccer suitor world works.

And, there was no stealing; especially when fees are involved. Her new club is better for her; hands down. It was spending money more wisely as a consumer.

Common complaint at the highest level, " If your kid is top 5 on team she will be fine. Beyond that you will see what people are talking about here. For next years DA team his top 5 already know who they are. The rest have one job. Get the ball to those 5".

That's everywhere. See it's impossible to keep every family on an 18-20 player roster happy.

If you make the bottom 5 on the roster happy because you give them half of every game you make the other 15 families unhappy. Players 1-5 are unhappy because they think if the bottom 5 got 10 minutes or less per game the team would be more successful and they would therefore appear more attractive in US soccer's and top 20 college coach's eyes. The middle 10 don't like the bottom 5 stealing time from them and limiting their exposure.

If you play the bottom 5 10 minutes a game, then their families often are absolutely furious and become poison. They even sometimes tell the other parents that the coach "hates" their child, is trying to ruin their future, is frankly an evil person. This poison spreads and half the team buys into the theory that the coach is evil. The team may even be less successful because the unrest spreads to the kids and everyone's enjoyment is affected.

The happiest group however remain the top 5. Especially if the coach is actually yelling to the other players get the ball to V, W, X, Y or Z and they are showing well. So the vast majority of coaches decide that their best chance of success is to basically minimize the PT of the bottom 5 as much as they can before running into the poison situation if possible. Some parents lean toward poison and the threshold for setting them off is very low. If he's very, very, lucky the bottom 5 have pretty sane parents who are telling their kids to play hard and decide if they want to switch to another, clean slate, team next year.

How many of PF players 10-15 are thinking of witching to PA classics or CFC to try for player 1-5?

Anonymous said...

I think this is the complaint in every club. The grass always looks greener. Sometimes it really isn't.

I read complaints about all the other clubs in PA, MD, NJ, NY, etc. Same thing different parents and locations and leagues. So, is it the clubs or the parental expectations especially at this age?

Little mia who was the star at U13/U14 may not be the same star at U16+. Parents have a tough time accepting the plateau. And, then put unrealistic demands on their child.

Poor kids are getting pressure from coaches and parents and peers. And, they pressure themselves. Remember, kids are breakable. THe pressures they feel at this age are real.

It's still supposed to still be fun you know. Don't take that away.

Anonymous said...

CFC is really good, always has been. PAC has had some rough times. I can tell you the coach makes all the difference. coaches cut, take on new girls, tell new girls parent she cannot be on team. She will only play half the matches. They have to adjust at half time. Do physical training, have a great goal keeper, I mean a great goal keeper at this age is needed. Many girls are same talent level, it just depends on how you coach, train, and again, what girls you take or cut.

Grass fields are great if they are professionally maintained and you only play a couple games on them on the weekend, but they simply don't hold up to the rigors of daily training. Turf fields were a requirement for ECNL clubs as well as Boys DA for a reason. I've been to some immaculate grass complexes down south but here in the northeast they are few and far between. I've always felt crappy grass fields favored kick and run teams where as turf favors good passing teams. Guess that's why my daughter prefers turf.

Anonymous said...

CFC just brought on a new DOC that will have to focus on the boys and the verdict is still out on whether he will be able to handle the current mess.

As for first class all turf complex at the Proving Grounds, the CFC ECNL program will be moving back to USTC. They will be more or less the B program for the PF GDA. There is going to be an effort to phase out boys and girls ECNL programs at the Proving Grounds and build the young teams out of USTC. They still will be using turf if that makes you happy.

CFC girls teams and the boys ECNL are moving back to USTC. The parents have already been told in the town hall meetings. The teams 2002 and younger will train and play out of USTC. Alternative facts would be something other. People at CFC are being told the younger teams will play out of USTC. What isn't an alternative fact is that FC Europa and Lower Merion are playing out of Proving Grounds too. Proving Grounds will rent field to any group that wants to pay. What is a fact is that CFC owns a nice chunk of USTC. They own at USTC, not rent which is big. It's only a matter of time before CFC and PF come together and play our of Chester County.

8:35 Boca mommy and daddy coaches did win their bracket at NEWS this year, so they must have done something right. You can rip them all you want, but those girls play hard for them. Lost to a PA team today, but even in defeat they played hard right to the whistle.
9:17 in dreamland. Please let me know when anything said at a town hall meeting actually equals truth in the following year. The PF director has told NPL parents every year how its an opportunity for players to move up to the ECNL team (Zero girls so far in three years). How many times has the CFC coaches told parents that most of their practices would be held at USTC and just the opposite happened (every year. By the way, I have this car for sale and I'll give you a great deal on it (all highway miles)
What would PF have to gain from a badly mismanaged club like CFC? Plus having PF give up their girls ECNL tag is sauce for the goose for a club like CFC.

PF GDA will be A-level and CFC Girls and boys ECNL will be B-level. CFC Boys DA play at a higher level than PF boys ECNL, so CFC DA is the A-level and PF boys ECNL the B-level. PF GDA will play at a higher level than that of the CFC girls ECNL, so PF GDA is A-level and CFC ECNL is B-level. It is pretty simple.

NPL players at CFC and PF won't make the ECNL teams because they are low level players. They won't play ECNL.

Right now there is an obligation for both CFC and PF to have NPL teams. So the parents are told that their child might have a shot of moving up to the ECNL team. Both clubs tell the parents that, however it isn’t a reality.

NPL is a waste of time and money.

As for USTC and Proving Grounds, maybe you can ask someone in person at CFC in two weeks at tryouts about the location of training and games next year. The tryouts that are taking place at....ummmm.....USTC...strange, why would they be holding tryouts at USTC for the first time in three years? Must be dreamland..

8:35 pm which parent on the team are you? Just wonder since you think you know so much? If you are in the team please leave now! Is your kid one of the kids who has NO commitment and never show to practice? Please leave NOW we don't want you. Otherwise zip your lip because you are clueless
