Your kid should pick a college they want to go to and use soccer to help them get in. If they play bonus.

Not let soccer pick the school. Very few careers in woman's soccer after college.

Don't waste the college years chasing a dream that will not feed you.

9:52 yes many people saw that. Manager of freehold is the one starting all of that. She is known for being an arrogant complainer. If the team loses she always looking for something to complain about with the hope of changing things. Worst manager of a mediocre team.

You want to talk about different payments for different people try the Wildcats. The worst for that. Everybody pays something different.

Copa is going up in the ranking and all the so call Good going down! We are number 3 now!

Careful 1027. I was labeled a chauvinist for saying that last spring.
I agree completely though. Dreams and wishes are nice and worth fostering, but realistic views and seizing opportunities provided by soccer for the best long term success and happiness in life is the better goal.
Enjoy the competition and learn to work hard to achieve success - individual and as part of a team, but remember it is just a game and it is meant to be fun.

Your statistics are significantly off with regards to ECNL players at the u17 & u18 Recruitment class.

It is very easy to verify that there are many more than just 4 players per team that will play D1 this fall and next.

You can easily verify this . If you have survived The ECNL environment into your JR and Senior year then you have a real shot at making a D! program.

many choose the better D2 school who may be able to play for a D1 because of academic reasons.

And yes lots of D2 & players from Ecnl as well.

I can see from your post that your daughter does not play for an Ecnl team. Your bias is obvious.

Please take a look at the graduating SR listof matchfit and PDA. It is available. you will see the number of D1 schools that these girls plan to attend and play.

It doesnt matter how much of a "impact player" you are, nobody is getting free rides at this age, you know why, partially because a previous poster was correct, there are 30 other girls willing to take that spot and pay full price.(I admit it's still a business) I havent seen anyone at this age score a goal EVERY time they touch the ball. Poster talking about "silver spoons" have no idea what you are talking about. Your information is probably from this blog and thats it. Why dont you truly get informed before spouting that ECNL is elitest and only for the rich. Maybe your perception because of a certain teams in your state or because they are geographically not convenient its all the sudden elitest, but not all ECNL teams across the country, trust me on this one. Yes, I am an ECNL parent and I know from tryouts that all your top players and team captains were at our club trying out.(mayeb thats why so many are angered, just didnt make the cut?) The girls that made the team are all top girls from a 40+ mile radius. What does that mean? depth of top players. Players all committed and focused only on soccer, girls not waiting for basketball or lax season to come. How many times have you been in a close game and the coach makes a sub and you can hear the mummbling and see they eye rolling because the talent level just dropped, or pissed that you go out of your way to make a practice in the winter (if you even practice in the winter) and half the girls are no shows because of basketball. Exceptions to all, but that doesnt happen in ECNL.

ECNL would be out of the question for a player of limited means. The lower/middle income talent is not at try outs.

Every ECNL player I am aware of personally is from a family that can easily pay.

Re: Freehold

6-0 and 2-0 wins

vs

5-1 and 3-1 for NJX

Yeah, they got screwed

But the posted rules favored NJX, somehow.......

The difference here is EDP Cup doesnt give extra points for shutouts - and favors goals scored (4 per game max) over goals allowed.....

Had Freehold been on top of it they'd have known they were not advancing, as unfair as the rule appears. And could have avoided a scene.

Anonymous said...

NJX paren here and the rules wee extremely confusing. We didn't think we advanced and freehold had a valid point. Wish they would stick to head to head then goals against. Much easier.

Anonymous said...

Based on those numbers Freehold would be the team that would make sense to advance. The rules however state differently. Bad work by EDP. If you are flighting the teams properly then eliminate the 4 goal differential.

I can't believe COPA is not going to Bethesda. I thought they would want to compete against some very strong competition other than Brick, Freehold, SJEB, NJX....Sorry, reality is you can't / don't win when you play outside of NJ. #3 give me a break. Got soccer is a joke.

Ecnl-
They are not developing players though. Right or wrong they simply are. For instance Penn Fusion 98. Considered a good team by most. At one point last season it was something like 38/42 goals were scored by 3 players from Classics and Ldc who had come over. With out those 3 where would they be? For me the decision is easy. It's an hour drive. At my daughters age group Penn Fusion and Continetal are not very good. So why pay the money and why travel. We will continue to beat those Ecnl teams every time we play them. Also if your daughter is on a really good nonEcnl team. And she is top 1 or 2 on the team. And you beat the Ecnl teams. College won't be an issue. I don't need 300 coaches of which more then 3/4 are d2 or d3 to stoke my ego with attention. She knows where she wants to go. She has their attention so what's the point. If you want coaches stroking your ego and you want to pay top dollar to get beat by parents paying $1000 bucks a year have at it. Know that in 5-6 years you'll be wondering what the heck it was all for. Or it will be sooner when you finally talk one of us into coming over and knocking little Mia off the team. If it's so awesome and so worth it wouldn't you keep your flapper shut out of fear your daughter will get knocked off. There will always be someone better.

Is the new style of play from STA to have kids carry the ball the length of the pitch with their head down then turn it over, or allow the opposing team to control possession for the majority of the match while defending inside the 18?

I saw a lot of both this past weekend.

Anonymous said...

Copa doesn't compete with the NJ teams either as evident from this past weekend. They are more suited to play Wildcats, NJX, Freehold, TRIC, Stronghold & Rush instead of the top teams in NJ or any State for that matter. They are legends in their own minds & have be one the but of jokes just like Jackson used to be before they finally did everyone a favor & fold. Couldn't even come on here & face the music after a weekend that really showed that you don't belong yet.

WRONG, COPA belonged, in some cased dominated play. Final score is not always indicative of the play on the field.

Of course the ECNL will give greater visibility. Anyone who thinks otherwise is just fooling themselves. Boys side, Academies do the same. Does it mean the the best players are in ECNL or Academy, no, but it does make your job of getting into school harder if you arent in one of these.

My kids dont play in the ECNL or Academy. Doesnt mean I dont know the truth.

Anonymous said...

okay I need some help on this one. In the event of tie between two teams, head-to-head results determine placement. They tied so we move on to the next one.

5. In the further event of a tie, goal differential determines placement, with up to plus-4 or minus-4 units awarded per game.
Freehold had a 6GD (4-0 & 2-0) and NJX had a 5GD (4-1 & 3-1) over the two games Freehold moves on to final.

This tie breaker does not come in to effect as Freehold had a better GD.
6. In the further event of a tie, accumulated goals scored with a limit of 4 per game determines
placement. NJX has 7 Freehold 6

Freehold should have been in the final based on the second tie breaker rule posted on the tournament web site.

Anonymous said...

If that is off their website and I cant imagine that it isnt. EDP made a mistake. However, if it was argued as previously mentioned, how could they NOT have figured this out?

Anonymous said...

ECNL gives greater visibility for colleges and national team without a doubt. Can your kid get similar visibility if she is ODP regional team and national league? I believe probably. Region 1 league though probably not equivalent to ECNL. Do you think that the best couple of kids on a top 2 non ECNL team in any state in R1 who does not do ODP can get the same exposure? Maybe if NPL and id2 selected but otherwise my guess is probably not.

2:27 why change the subject. I have zero affiliation with Freehold and I am interested to know why this decision was made. I am sure it wan not anti Freehold and pro Holmdel so keep that out.

freehold freehold freehold!

Anonymous said...

agreed. We can all say it doesn't matter because it was bracket two or that it is just for bragging rights. But actually, this is interesting. And it is a topic of conversation where there is a right and a wrong answer and we aren't actually bashing anyone. (Except potentially EDP decision makers and I assume that they are adults so if they made a mistake, they should own it!)

But don't forget there are GS points - which actually do matter to the non NPL or ECNL teams as they effect future tournament placement.

And if EDP screwed up, how do you fix this? Freehold lost out on a tie breaker to NJX who then lost the final in a shootout. Do they replay the final? Wow....

Anonymous said...

nothing will be done. My question is simple..........if the rules are laid out as simply as the above poster then how is it possible that Freehold and Holmdel accepted the answer they were given by EDP. Holmdel, what was EDP's explanation of why you were advanced ahead of Freehold? Freehold, what did they tell you? Something has to be missing.

Anonymous said...

Is the answer just as easy as "freehold didn't know or were mistaken on the tie breakers". Hard to believe as most parents know ever permutation that needs to take place for them to get into the finals...(i.e. we have to win by 3 goals and they have to lose by two goals for us to go through)

Anonymous said...

Ok. I went back read the rules myself. Seems like the person who calculated the second tie breaker up above as 4-0 and 4-1 made a mistake. It should have been 4 points to both NJX and Freehold as NJX won 5-1 and therefore gets the full 4 points bringing both teams to 6 points in the second tie breaker.

So NJX won on the tie breaker on goals scored and the correct team went through.

Obviously, we can all debate the merit of the rules as established (pretty terrible i think we can all agree) but much more interesting when it seemed like maybe someone had screwed up and sent the wrong team through.

We could have conspiracy theoried this to death...

The fact that the PF '98 team collected such strong players from LDC and Classics (60-90 miles away) says something about the draw of the ECNL. Who is to say that these players might not be even better if they had been developed at West Chester. It is a fallacy that great training can turn an un athletic kid into a great soccer player no matter how passionate. Likely these kids got adequate training, but athleticism and drive made them into the players they are today. Also they are still developing and obviously their parents thought that PF brought the best combination of training, competition and exposure for them. How much do you think they pay...

Anonymous said...

Okay now I've also looked up the rules.
I read it like this.
Does the 4 goal cap count in the tie breakers?
If not
Freehold won 6/0 & 2/0
NJX won 5/1 &3/1
Freehold is plus 8
NJX is plus 6

With the 4 goal cap its 6/5 Freehold.
The first tie breaker was goal differential

Good thing this is not an election ballet.

Enough already. Read the friggin tiebreaker rule word for word. Yes up to a maximum of 4. They did it right. You are out.

I'm going to guess that the classics 98 PF girl who is on the u17 national team and just played in China or somewhere over there would not be better coming out of West Chester. Big difference between National pool and playing on the team. They did see a draw and a reason to drive almost 2 hrs one way. On the other hand wouldn't her spot on the u17 team get her almost any college she wants? And she didn't need or use PF to get that spot.

Anonymous said...

If you read it correctly Freehold won 4-0 & 2-0 & NJX won 5-1 & 3-1 which is 8 goals scored to 6 goals. I agree with you the 8 goals should count for Freehold then the goals against would have eliminated NJX. Tough to not give a goal & not make the finals but that has been happening at all the EDP tournaments over the last year where teams can play for a tie on Sunday & move on because they scored 1 more goal even though they also gave up goals. Need to know the rules & adjust to them as Freehold needed to win 3-0 not 2-0 but I'm sure the coaches had no idea.

Anonymous said...

FREEHOLD madness:

Here it is in a nutshell:

The 5th goal for NJX counts when determining goal differential, since it still only took them to +4.

5-1 and 3-1 equals a +6, not a +5. Freehold was also +6 (+4 for the 6-0 win and +2 for the 2-0 win)

Next tiebreak is goals scored.

NJX now gets just 4 for the 5-1 win, but gets 3 for the 3-1 win. That is 7.

Freehold gets 6, since they get just 4 for the 6-0 win and 2 for the 2-0 win.

7-6, favoring NJX

Screwy, but it is there in print.

Had Freehold won 4-2, which I dont favor as a score to 2-0, they would have been in final (with 8 goals total)



Then in the next

Freehold won 4-0 & 2-0 & NJX won 5-1 & 3-1 which is 8 goals scored to 6 goals. I agree with you the 8 goals should count for Freehold then the goals against would have eliminated NJX.

You have to adjust the NJX 5-1 game to 4-1 and it was goal difference so its FH 6 NJX 5

"Bad rules" based on what? Rules were same for all. Been the same in these MAPS tournaments forever. Maybe +/- 3 previously. Not a peep before.
If you made it to the 7th tie breaker than shut outs win. What is harder in this game -to prevent scoring or to score ?? Rhetorical question. Easier to defend then score. I like a rule that encourages attacking ahead of defending . And also seems haven't seen those arbitrary next day shootouts- that occur often with that other rule system.
start a petition to switch rule 6 with 7.

Freehold also tied the runner up of the other bracket in the 3rd place match.

Anonymous said...

6:17

INCORRECT

It is NOT adjusted down to 4-1 since the goal DIFFERENTIAL limit is 4.

It IS adjusted with goal scored since the goal SCORED value for each game's limit is 4.

Differential - 4+2 for NJX
Differential - 4+2 for Freehold

Next tiebreak

Goals scored -

4+3 for NJX
4+2 for Freehold

A town team is make up of only players from that town. At this age that does not exist We all have players from other towns with some driving over 40 minutes to do so.

So can we put an end to the town team is better than the XXX one. When our team was a true town team we paid $400 for 4 tournaments, spring and fall leagues. Now we have other players from other towns added a trainer to help coach, we play lots of events and pay north of $1800. Will my daughter ever play in college I dont know. All I do know is we are all paying plenty to play the cheapest sport in America. So start focusing on who you pay to train and coach as that should be our #1 debate on this blog. Are they helping our girls get better?

4:09 from yesterday - ECNL

I understand that coaches will down play ECNL and that makes sense for them. If they hype it up they will leave the club, but let me flip the scipt on you...if your coach had the opportunity to become a head coach for one of the ECNL clubs in your area, would they leave your club to go there?...same with the guest trainer with no ties to your club, if he or she had the opportunity to be a trainer at one of the ECNL clubs in your state would they go? I dont have an answer but you would have to be honest and answer yourself.

I know both sides as I have talked to a lot of coaches that gave me pros and cons of ECNL, one is that it is extremely competitive and every practice session is a try out to start, sometimes by the time girls get to college and soccer is a full time job besides school work, girls are just plain burned out. You can also get recognized via ODP or ID2, etc.. In my state ODP is a joke, but a VERY EXPENSIVE one that is not very funny and ID2, you need to be recognized by not only your coach but by others as well...Not saying ECNL is a end all, be all, but people bash it without full information is ignorant..not saying you 4:09, just saying

I hear what your saying. Perhaps I am not understanding. Why would a top college program head coach not be able to train where ever they want. It's one of the most desired college programs in the country. She trained us as a favor to our coach. He could coach pretty much where ever he wants. Ecnl would love to have him. That I'm sure. He is not just a Pro coach he actually is also a pro coach. As for the assistant coach she could also coach anywhere she wants. She is widely traveled including Europe after a 4 year college career at one of the best programs in the country. She chose to be an assistant at a different d1 program. Ecnl would take either of them in a heart beat.

dear admin,

first amendment:"abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press" its social media and if name are not mentioned, why take it down? People need to know and ask questions. Questioning athority is what made this country what is. Home of the free land of the brave. When an organization is screwing around with the livelyhood of players and parents on the grounds of providing a service that is by no means honest or trustworthy people need to know. You are enabling these so called academies to run a muck and when the shit hits the fan and parents are being taken as suckers they have the right to know they are being taken for a ride. Maybe you shut it down because your not being fair to the truth. If 3-5 is your angle remember that many people gave their lives to provide us with free speech no names where mentioned but somehow you find it necessary to provide this organization an arena to rob and steal from parents.

thanks,

After 4 kids and roughly 15 years being involved with and around youth soccer, I have come to the conclusion that it has become a dirty business.

These so-called academies scam the parents BIG-time. I would love to quit, problem is I have a kid that is actually quite good and loves the game. Team is very good despite the club/coach shenanigans. Don't have the heart to make her go back to a crappy team. There is no Brick equivalent in my area.

back to gfa, freehold and brick being best teams in area?? again, hand it to brick, I saw only a small handful of town teams, brick, freehold, howell, watching. good for all of them. mostly academies, so gods speed to these town teams for keeping kids local and together and rising to the top.

Please freehold is better than brick or GFA. They were the best team last weekend , as good as copa . Best soccer.

By the way. Not that the facts matter to most, but there are actually 2 Penn Fusion players on the u17 national pool. That is birth year 1999. The u17 "team" won't be named for almost 2 years, right before the u17 World Cup in 2016. The player who actually plays up on the '97 team started in Korea and has played her entire youth soccer experience at west Chester united and then Penn Fusion. I guess the theory that all national level players are recruited and the west Chester training isn't that good is proven wrong. The Penn fusion '98 player also plays up and is also a fantastic player. Penn fusion has also helped her along the way to international competition. There are no weak penn fusion teams. Bring your player and see if she can be an impact player. All teams are always looking for players who move up the level. Clearly there are some players who are not yet in the ECNL who could benefit from the exposure. The u14 team is doing very well. They are great kids who play beautiful soccer. Will be hard to break in but I am sure the coaches are always happy to bring in an impact player.

If you mean top paying, by top teams, then you're right. Keep on shelling out all that wasted $$ mindless drones.

Top level soccer is all mindless, very little creativity.

Good luck to all teams still in State Cup!!!

IMHO - It looks like Brick is in the drivers seat to take it.

With - Freehold - Crush - Stallions with next best chance

Longer shots - TSF - NJX Rush and Watchung

Would love to see one of those teams take it!!!!

Enjoy and hope the players stay healthy and that the best team on the field that day takes the win.

The only way SJEB gets a win at Bethesda is if they play NEFC or NYSC. Finals will be Bethesda vs Penn Fusion. HBC could sneak in to the finals.

yes we all agree ECNL is getting the attention of top players, but not all, yes better exposure then other leagues.. for only the top players,.. but look at the numbers, only a few % from each team will go d1, the balance will go D2,3. What we are saying is that many parents think their kid will go D1 with scholarship just because they are on a ecnl when the truth is most will not; in the end their kid would have seen the same results as if they played in these other non ecnl leagues (who knows maybe even got more exposure Big Fish little pond)

Anonymous said...

I don't think anyone is under the assumption that ECNL = D1 placement automatically. School is always first and if this helps facilitate acceptance to one of those programs thats great. If it helps her get into a D2 or D3 that SHE wants to go to and feels that a D2 ir D3 has a better fit thats great too...dont totally disagree about big fish, small pond, but you better stick out and outshine or you will be a small fish in a small pond.

I don't think the Copa player gets it.

Honey your club cheated and got caught. Your coach had to leave. The best thing you can do is stop mentioning Copa for awhile.

There would be no badmouthing if your club had been ethical. You're old enough to know the difference between right and wrong.

Let it go for awhile and then come back with the RAH RAH.

Incorrect... played uncarded players for U17s at MSSL Summer Showcase... not Nationals.

Yet owner plays players for 2 teams in same tournament which is against rules and gets away with it.

Not all that happened was posted. There is more.

MSSL was not the only tournament uncarded players were used. Nationals too.

Now the administrator will intervene as always when they talk about Copa. I said in previous post that brick coach is not that friendly with copa guy and now you know why....

I'm not a copa parent but i did see the email . There is lots more info lol crazy . Wow . Have a question for anyone to answer . Do you think copa will lose some girls . Where would you suggest these girls look at for teams . This could be like the lottery for some teams lol .

Anonymous said...

Team will be fine but if these things are true I would consider a change of teams before this team is connected to something fishy.

Anonymous said...

Same coach who got busted was the coach of this team. Copa uses the same coach for several teams. Have to wonder about all teams.

Anonymous said...

Hard to believe club would not be aware of what us going on & know of other clubs doing the same thing at tournaments so it makes you wonder what they did & didn't know what was going on.

Will the stallions get Copa points too if they fold??

Anonymous said...

I spoke to a COPA parent this week. US club investigated former coach and COPA after a complaint was filed about coach. US club found no wrong with Copa. Coach was going to banned for a year for issues with an older team until coah committed multiple crimes against COPA as coach was running back to England. and now is getting a lifetime ban because of the crimes. Ban will be up on the suspended coaches list on internet. Coach is the one pounding the blog against COPA for some sort of revenge. I hear outside of some injuries the team is committed and happy with new coach.

NJX again lost on pk's ouch! Tough way to go out & to a team that plays in low level flights in tournaments. Hard to put NJX as a top 10 team when they lose to other teams that aren't either. Looks like an easy game for the Stallions then in the semis after they get by Freehold.
