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.

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

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.
PSA GFA self-bragging & delusional parents...
6:28 I don't brag and I am far from delusional. However, when you post inaccurate and offensive information/comments, I do defend. That's normal. You have the axe to grind and it is getting so very old.
July 21, 2016 at 7:09 PMMaybe you dont brag but you do post inaccurate information as it only show you playing HBC 5x not 6x with a 3-2 record with 2 straight losses. you posted you are 4-2 against them.
Yes cause won two games vs them, 4-1 and 5-2 and lost two games 1-0. And know that nobody cares . Apparently only you. So this is just to answer to your wrong statement .
Who cares, yesterday's news, new season coming up new rosters, a new pecking order will be determined and no one will care about 2016.
July 22, 2016 at 2:58 PMyou wrote something i checked it and you were wrong. the team is good on its own you don't need to inflate their record to make your kids team look better. Just for the record i couldn't find a 4-1 game, are you incorrect about that too?
10/19 4-2 ( you are right not 4-1)3/14/2015 Jeff cup 2-05/2/2015 5-1 ( you are right is not 5-2)Then two loss 1-0 the resent games.Again nobody cares , only you but you are right we need to have the right Infos.
July 22 @ 12:44. This is 7:09. For the record, I did not post the wins and losses
July 22, 2016 at 4:50 PMI'm sorry that I questioned you. why don't we just say that PSA is 100-0 against the uswnt? Funny that the "mistakes" you made were ones that made your team look better. I would have made the same post if you had mistakenly posted that you were 2-3 against HBC or what ever team and you were actually 3-2. The point is that you were intentionally inflating the stats to benefit your case and you got busted...DON'T DO THAT!
1:26 I am starting to worry that you are actually disturbed. "DON"T DO THAT" ? I really don't think that reporting on 4 vs 5 games is that big a deal. We get it, they lost that game. I don't really think that one game is going to change one person's opinion of PSA good or bad. I do think your obsession with it is more cause for concern.
Don't lie about scores to make your team look better. Btw you want to include your pda games when you know both Bethesda and Cup had multiple top players away that weekend for other soccer commitments. You played shells of those teams. That will show when Cup beats HBC in the nationals. You have a good team everyone would agree, it's the dopey parents like you that make the team unlikable.
This person is really envious. Shell of a team? Really who are you really. It sad that you know more about Gfa then your daughters team. Players miss all the time. It's about how deap is your bench. Your the cunt who relentlessly begins the agitation and is not happy until Gfa breaks up as a team. Your fixated on everything this team does. All the chances to confront us to have a legit discussion yet you hide behind the blog over and over again. I'll be more than happy to rub some vagisil all over you to soothe your irittability.
Mod: kill 7:25 please. Offensive and clearly unnecessary word used. TY.
I have said time and time again that the team is a very very good team. I think a parent like you does the team a major disservice, due to your insecurity about the team, that you would feel the need to put fake or inaccurate stats out to inflate their standing. Their record spoke for them in a very high regard until you had to go cheapen the accomplishments by trying to make the record look better by lying. In doing so, you now open the record up to scrutiny. You seem to think the comments are in some way about the girls when in fact they have carried themselves very well. A previous poster stated that they handled themselves very well in defeat as well. The comments were directly related to your need to falsify a record that was damn good on its own accurate merit.
Winning the NPL is like winning the triple a baseball league. No one cares.
You are very sad individuals. What are you going to do after your child is done playing. You will have nothing to feed your superiority complex. You are extremely shallow and most of us pity your childish behavior. Your soccer life is nothing without your daughter and she is moving on in the very near future. You will need to get a grip on reality very soon - you have done nothing and you are not the superstar. If your daughter wasn't touring with the national team, neither is she no matter what league she is in.
Is this how it goes?"But mommy and daddy don't care if that's not the school that you want or if they offer your major - we spent so much money so we could brag about you playing division 1"
Couple points here. Bethesda top players were at PDA and played in our game.They left after the game and still made it to National training. We all have players missing at events, but we don't come on here to explain to you. Our girls are taught to win as a team and lose as a team. Until ECNL or any league figures out how to include all the top teams and weed out the less competitive, there will be other leagues that have strong teams. No one really argues that the ECNL league has the majority of the best teams and we grab every opportunity to face those teams. Win, lose or draw it is always a competitive game.We are not given the choice to play in ECNL, so we play in NPL. We win NPL Nationals. That's an accomplishment and pretty sad that you put that down. There are good teams and players in that league. Players choose to stay with a team and a coach or stay away from a team or coach.Some may not be geographically near an ECNL team, there are so many reasons. I believe you when you say that the UNC coach only mentioned ECNL, but I assure you he has NPL players on his radar. These coaches are at our games and that is a fact. I wish your daughter the best of luck and assure you mine is just fine and very proud that she just won a national title
Wrong, guess again. But doesn't matter who.Those are facts and valid points.
Can we stop talking about IGFA on this blog already? Their season is done and they are moving on to U17 so please continue this childish back-and-forth on the U17 blog. I am so glad my child is a 2001 so I don't have to read this trash anymore.
Once college is over PDA is Players Done Also. ECNL means nothing for your career and life especially if you focus on the wrong priorities. If you think NPL girls can't and won't bump your daughter, you are foolish - wake up. Arrogance and self centered talk will work against you in the long run. You have no idea what the coaches motivations and it needs are. Your daughter will always be challenged by those you don't expect.
ECNL is the problem behind US soccer. Money Talks. Everyone else walks. If you don't have money than you can't play.ECNL does have very good players. But it only includes those who can afford its hefty cost and travel expense. Until this changes ECNL only includes part of the talent in the USA . It's a system built on $$$$
So sick of psa/gfa .Let me ask a serious question to the owner or owners.IF you claim to be a great coach,why do we never hear about any of your other teams.I looked them up and it's scary how bad they are.To me doesn't say much about the owners.
Look at the PSA GFA travel for the last year and compare it to PDA. Do you really believe GFA parents paid less than PDA ones?
GFA coach has only been doing this a couple of years. To be clear, I am not suggesting it will become PDA, but you need to look back not that far to see when PDA did not even have teams at every age. Let the dust clear with the birth year and DA and let's see where this club is at in 5 years. I believe you will see a lot of strong players come out of there consistently. Time will tell.
10:34The 2 sisters who are forwards were not there. I was watching the game and talking to the parent administration for Bethesda. Once again you need to lie to make a really good team seem better. Why do you do that? You are not helping them in fact you are hurting them. DON'T DO THAT! You should put your crayon away and step away from your keyboard.
The DONT DO THAT poster has some serious issues. Jealous party of 1 your table is ready.
Self righteous and condescending come hand in hand with superiority complex. They are ECNL (actually their daughter is but whatever) and therefore they are Elite in every way.
Bethesda sisters played in the game vs GFA. Not sure what game you watched. The bigger question would be why watch a team that you do not like?
I said time and again I like the team very much! You are the problem with your kids team. Your head is spinning 1st you incorrectly assumed I was from hbc so you started bashing them. When you realized im not with them you jumped on the ECNL theory and once again your wrong. Maybe I am with a college and was asked to evaluate some parents to see if a certain coach would want to deal with certain players based partially on that kids parents behavior. You would really be hurting your kid.
Yes college coaches often hire crazy anonymous bloggers to guess (incorrectly by the way) who they are talking to and pass on a player based on a guess. As far as liking the team, you only recently changed your tune on that because you couldn't find support on here to trash the team so now you are onto the parents which is preferable anyway. Leave our hard working and respectful girls alone. I only defend on here when you try to stir the pot. Now can we move on from you freaking out over someone misreporting one stat that made all the difference in your mind to something more general. Can we talk about the National event in Colorado without trashing the teams and competition? Anyone have any feedback on ID camps?
WILDCATS _ WILDCATS _ WILDCATS _ WILDCATS
Only one player from NJ on the U15 Girls National team to compete in CONCACAF tourney in August. congrats to her, hope she plays well!
Now there's a dose of reality. One girl. That is a tremendous accomplishment and everyone in NJ should wish her well. I bet those ECNL elitists have an excuse why they didn't pick their daughter though. It's all coming to an end very quickly. Cherish the time and work on happy thoughts instead of petty jealousy and bitterness. You are not the best no matter what your team (yes it takes a whole team) has done. One girl. And a tougher road ahead as the age groups expand on the national teams. Stop the hate and fighting and speak out for the beauty of the sport. If you can't come here for a good debate and discussion, just go away and cry in private how you were robbed at the ID Camp. We won't miss you for a minute.
Its a rigged system!!!!!
Definitely rigged for those who have the money, networking and political connections to push and pull strings. It was and has never been about working and making a break through. It's now about who and what you know not about how you play. Her talents and abilities are equal to many players in Nj and across the region. If you want to congratulate the efforts of a rigged system then by all mean wish her well. But believe me I have seen her play and there is nothing that really stands out except Slick's connections and his ability to weasel around and get his daughter looks. The networking that all of us lack because we were never national soccer players. It's not to say that she is not talented but to say that she is the only NJ player capable of playing at the national is as bad saying that ECNL is the only route to D1 schools. Yes she is a great player from NJ but she is not alone.
I say it's Rigged also how can 2 players in Hawaii able to get identified with the lack of competition there unless parents have enough $ to fly back and forth to the states to attend training events with scouts there. There many players missed in the system for them to narrow it down to 18 at such a young age.
Wow - you're back?Flaming the Hawaii girls when you dont even know how good they are.Priceless.(By the way, if it was by association, more of a chance that they would be from Hawaii SURF, not the club they are with)
5:46If you are choosing the BEST New Jersey player at (last year's) U14, would it be her?Please - no need to name anyone else - just a yes or no.
Are any of us really an authority on choosing the best. So many nuances that no one on here even if you played 25 years ago in college are qualified to make. She is a great player and it is up to the national coaches to decide if she is what they need and if she possesses something that their #2 choice did not.
Speed, strength, poise, vision....Please add to the listCoachability, maybe.......There are 2-3 players I feel that could possibly challenge the mentioned player for top in NJ, using last year's U14 age cutoffLets not forget some U14s were playing up at U15
Like slick said a few post back,any number of girls from gfa could have made it,if given a fair shot.
The New Jersey kid is listed as a Matchfit player who is slick? And how is she attached to her?
Slick is the coach of the best team in in nj,just ask him
He's the Matchfit coach?
Slick is the dad of the player who made the u15 national roster. She was at GFA, then Matchfit now at PDA.
Hey jealous gfa/psa parents don't be mad because Leigh is and was superior to your kids.Ask your selves why did all the good kids quit.Look at your leadership and program as a whole club and run to a committed club with a future not a one show pony on its last legs.Future isn't bright .
Superior now that's hilarious
