I agree with you so many trolls pretending to be some teams. Enjoy your daughters

11:05 Therein lies the problem." Your parents" What about the girls? Maybe 1% of 13 and 14 year old girls would even think about college recruiting if it wasn't put into their heads by parents and coaches.The majority started out loving this sport and hopefully will be permitted to continue to enjoy the game at whatever level is appropriate for them through high school and into college should THEY choose. Everyone step back and google the story on the basketball player who was heading to a d3 college and died of a terminal brain tumor that was diagnosed her senior year of high school. It sounds like she enjoyed all her years in the sport. can you say the same? or do you have the child that doesn't want to get in the car with you after the game because of the critiquing. My guess is the majority of you on here have the latter. everyone has different circumstances as to why they were chosen and accepted positions on each team. ecnl has advantages as a league for sure no one can argue that but it does not mean all of those players are better than every other player outside of encl.Some people do not live close to a ecnl club or cannot afford it.additionally each team has a different style and different needs and coaches choose and pass on different players based on those things

Who is the new Splash coach?

and what happened to the old one? why PDA made this change?

Old one going to match fit

...to coach which team/age group?

Anonymous said...



NJCSA is struggling to field a team for this age group, only have a minimal amount of players committed for next season, so all the rhetoric about them being ok is just that rhetoric. They are in trouble and may not have a team next year. That is a fact and if you are one that has already committed, you may wish to get your money back and find other options. Don't believe what you have been told.

They are now posting on NJ.com that they need players.

Pda splash do not need any coach they are an ECNL team!

Splash need Mossimo, they would never lose again with him.

Just about any coach should be very successful at PDA, when players will drive 2+ hours each way to play for the team and you attract the talent they do year in and year out at every age level it is not hard to be successful.

Wildcats will have 2 teams, wow, I'm sure the players that are going there will not be happy to hear that news!

Anonymous said...

WC will NOT have 2 teams in this age group next year! Stop spreading rumors that are not true, and please leave them and other teams alone. Learn your facts first before spreading crap. The girls will be playing up on the U16G team next year as well just like they have been doing this spring. That's what an Academy program does and should do for player development...The current girls on the U14 play both currently and are rostered on the U15G each weekend as a rotation as well. Wildcats have a very good program and we are VERY happy there as well. I wish all the NJ teams the best of luck the rest of the season and next weekend Memorial Day tournaments also. Support our teams in NJ not hate or bad mouth...Appreciate all these girls playing at a high !level at suh a young age! Enjoy!!

NJCSA wasnt any good. They had no talent. Kick and run. They had a couple of fast forwards that is all! So where did these fowards go?

Anonymous said...

One Wildcat team. Rotation playing up for player development. Jealous people start rumors. Current players and parents are happy otherwise they would leave.

Yeah, don't kid yourself into thinking we're all staying coach. The way you carry on and berate the girls is shameful. Taking them out of the game continuously for making one mistake is embarrassing. You don't know what player development is.

7:30 I was referring to NJ Wildcats coach. His behavior is embarrassing and shameful. He berates the players that they're not good enough to play at the "next level" and yanks them out of the game as soon as they make one mistake. He then continues to embarrass them on the bench. I'm done with his garbage and bully style of coaching. Our style of play isn't good enough for him as he thinks we're something we're not. We lost 2-1 today and it could easily have been 4 or 5-1. All he did was scream at the players all game long as usual. So frustrating.

Anonymous said...

11:32- don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you... If you don't like it then find another club. I don't need to defend our coach because quite frankly I would NOT have my daughter play for anyone else. And yes he DOES train this team and the WC's have come along way and will continue to because that's what it is about. Development. WC's run a great program.

11:32 it could of been 4 or 5 to 1. But it wasn't. I guess that means the defense and GK held their own against NJ Real. Great job Wildcats.

Player Development demands that:
“The player is central to all decisions made regarding
training and competition”
As a team sport, soccer is a late specialization sport.
The time frame for the development of soccer players is
considered long-term athlete development.
Research has shown that it takes between 15 and 17
years to become competent to compete at the highest
level in any sport.

Success in youth soccer requires good players, good coaches and good parents. After all, parents have to be just as committed as the players. They need to bring their children to practices and games. They need to provide them with proper equipment. Parents simply need to be supportive.



But sometimes parents can have a negative effect on youth soccer. They can turn a wonderful game into a miserable experience for their children. Here are ten ways to know if you are a bad soccer parent.


10. You are more upset about a loss than your child is.



Every soccer game has a winner and loser. But it is still just a game. Watch your children right after a loss. Chances are they are thinking more about getting ice cream than the result of the game. So move on. There will be another game.






9. You cannot keep quiet during a game.

Some parents cannot keep quiet during a game. They constantly yell at their children from start to finish. Try this experiment at your next game. See if you can go an entire game without uttering a single word. It sounds easy, but you may be in for a surprise.








8. You think you know more than the coach.




Do you often question the coach’s decisions? Do you think you know more about the game than they do? Even if your name is David Beckham, you are still just a parent on the team. The coach is the one who volunteered to train and develop these players. Let the coach be the coach. That is their job, not yours.







7. You think you know more than the referees.


Do you frequently question every call that goes against your team? Referees are human. They make mistakes. But unless you are a referee yourself, they know the rules better than you do. Yelling at them will do absolutely no good.






6. You think your child will get an athletic scholarship one day.





Earning an athletic scholarship to a college is an outstanding achievement. But expecting one is completely unrealistic. Not all youth soccer players make it to the high school level. And even if they do make it, only 2% of them will actually get an athletic scholarship.






5. You have moved your child to multiple teams.


Have you moved your child from one team to another? How many different soccer teams has your child been on? It is natural to move your child to more competitive teams when they are ready. But if you frequently move to different teams because you disagree with the coach, that is a problem.





4. You encourage your child to play selfishly.





Soccer is a team sport. There are 10 other players on the field with your child. Encouraging your child not to pass or to shoot when there is no shot is selfish. Your child will never be a winning player that way.





3. Your child has gotten upset about soccer because of something you said or did.




Soccer is a game. Kids play it to have fun. Don’t ruin the game for them. As a parent, you must make sure that they are enjoying themselves on the field. Your child will not go far in soccer if they are not having fun.





2. The coach has warned you about your behavior.

Parents make mistakes too. If the coach has warned you about your behavior, learn from your mistake.







1. You have been thrown out of a soccer game.

If a referee has ever thrown you out of a soccer game, you have made it clear that you are a bad parent. There is no excuse for this type of behavior.

GET A LIFE DADDY - Your not playing

Here's the rub - a lot of these town teams will survive while the so-called "elite" teams will suffer. There aren't enough teams for all the future USWNT players (sarcasm intended).

Read the post with the 10 signs you may be a bad parent. So many of these kids jump from team to team - for what? That won't help you get a scholarship, and we all know that getting a scholarship is like getting struck by lightning. Better chance of getting academic aid / scholarships, so hit the books.

Find a nice town team - play for the fun of it. Life is too short.

You are funny why not move on and stop lying if you say it 1000 times it won't make it true.
Winning Pct. 29% your not good at math. This is team is 8-6-1 since coach took over. Beat the Wildcats 3-2 a team that in november beat njcsa 6-0. So to take a team that had a 25% winning pct and be over 50% pct. is pretty amazing by any standard. Players are happy and like the positive approach. My daughter is very happy in a place where she wasn't happy prior to coach coming to this team. We will have a team and girls are happy so why not go away, crawl back into your hole and go away.
you are the only one with rhetoric. Good luck to your new team.
We thought you were okay but boy were we all wrong. Your what's wrong with sports today.

Where did you see a list of u15 NT camp? Or do you know a player who got an invitation?
The 2000 are U16 YNT, the 2001 would have been U14 in the past, but with the 2 paths now for even and odds maybe the 01s are u15s now. There probably are invites out already to the first camp of the 2001 cycle. Each age group now for a two year cycle being called either even or odd years teams for 2 year cycles it seems. As was mentioned earlier the USSF says there are now separate pathways for evens and odds. Probably the new path for evens is U14, U16, U18 and U20 with odds as U15, U17, U19 and U23?
We will know soon because of what they call the 2001s. Good luck and congrats to all kids who have made even one national camp call up. Quite an accomplishment.

Ignore @11:58. Congrats to NJX on their 2-1 win over Copa on Saturday. They played well and capitalized on their opportunities. Copa started slow and elevated their game to dominate the second half but did not capitalize on their chances. NJX held on and won- not luck but effort. One day ( hopefully soon) Copa will begin to consistently capitalize on the chances they create but until then will have to accept these types of results. NJX players- sorry to see the Freehold result but keep chin up. Congrats to SJEB on their overall win. A COPA Parent.

Crush and STA will continue to look good on paper as long as they play in the NYNPL. Glorified Long Island town teams make up most of the competition. Parents will keep drinking the kool aid as long as the teams keep winning and everyone buys into we are playing for the NPL Championship. Not much success for both outside of league play. Placed in low flights and I believe one team lost to a U13 team this weekend.

With some teams folding ( brick- NJCSA - crush etc..) lots of talent has been spread . the only team that never lose players is PDA splash. They all want to stay . That shows that the program is still the best out there.
Top players from the above teams went there or MF or IGFA and world class. All the others ( not the good ones) went to Nj elite or stallions and all the lower level teams. Do not expect major changing in teams levels. Who is mediocre now will still be mediocre in the fall.

So what do you think about our Nj teams over this weekend?
Splash won every game at the showcase proving that they are still good, match fit did well too, IGFA won Delco , barons and brick still the best at EDP cup. Anybody else? I was expecting little better from real Galaxy and crush as their flight was kind of easy but overall it goes to show that our top Nj teams can compete outside Nj . Good job everybody

GFA is a very good team and the results have backed that up. My daughter has played them multiple times and has played the Splash and I think that would be a great match. They are both very good teams and match up very well against each other. IMHO, I give GFA the slight edge based on what I have seen. I do not know much about Match Fit...so I cannot comment on that.

match fit and pda splash are on another planet to even care for any of little teams. they do not care.
level is too high for any other new jersey teams.

You must be completely blind and brainwash with the blue color. Did you see the teams GFA played at Delco? I think you lost to them.

How did you play with FC Bucks ECNL?

NJ elite is the next team headed to top 5 this fall. They just shut out the state cup champions at Edp cup.

3,39 ?? state champion ?who? lol lol

Anonymous said...

old bridge, the state champion. NJ elite totally dominated them. the new girls that joined the team (especially the new midfielder ) brought them to top level already.

If you know the Delco tournament then you realize that after u14, the Delco tournament gets considerably weaker and the college coaches are not many. they are at the ECNL events.

IGFA girls will need to come to matchfit and pda for the college scouting. Will be years before igfa can apply for ecnl. much more exposure for players in ecnl

What is the chance to get to college with soccer if you dont play ECNL? From the club like IGFA or a good high school team?

Anonymous said...

very strong if you do the correct legwork

But many very good players decide not to play in college

4:7 speaks gibberish, GFA

Stay together

Fact 1.

No college coaches come to high school games, even if you play for the top school in the state. Why would they spend the time and money when the can see 50+ of their prospects at a top showcase event.

Fact 2.

You don't have to be on an ECNL team to be seen...but if your not you better be on a top non-ecnl team that competes in the higher brackets of major college showcases...and I'm not talking about tournaments that start with EDP. Also helps to play in the top regional leagues To show that your daughter plays against top level competition.

Fact 3.

Your coaches connections and history of placements plays a huge role in your chances of requirement. Of course this is another advantage of ecnl as the clubs in our vicinity do have these strong relationships already. So do a bit of research into who your coaches have placed and what college coaches know about them. If you ask and you get back an answer of "never heard of him" then you are at a major disadvantage. Best situation is your coach picks up the phone and tells college coache's x,y and z that they need to see this girl. If the coach is respected and has placed strong recruits there they will come and take a good look at her.


So do your research folks. U15 is a critical year. Team makeup doesn't change a lot afterwards so make sure you are in the right place to give your daughters the best chances.

When did college placement become only about soccer? I'd rather have my daughter play D2 at a higher level institution then D1 at a no name U.

Anonymous said...

and what does playing D2 have anything to do with 6:47 post.

Exposure is especially true for those wanting to go to the Ivy's.

Exposure means for any great institution your daughter desires to go to.

Anonymous said...

6:47 some nice points. Connections are important-
The Ivys want Student Athletes- you have to have the academic profile to go there.

Anonymous said...

Connections or not. No scholarships to the Ivys.

There is ONLY ONE State Champion, and that's GFA. And as far as "brought them to TOP level already", LOL!!!

A lot of major colleges were scouting last weekend at PDA showcase - Florida State, Penn State, Duke, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Rutgers, UCLA, Wisconsin, Michigan, West Virginia, Stanford, USC, Boston College, Columbia, Virginia, Pepperdine, Northwestern just to name a few.

PDA PDA PDA!!!!

Hey Old Bridge.. Play GFA. Then blog.

Anonymous said...

Why 7:23? People can only blog if idiots like you think they are the top in the state? This blog is for all U14 girls, not just the top 3 in NJ. Does your daughter even play for these teams?

Anonymous said...

Wow - still see people talking about D1 schools and scholarships. News flash - there is little money for soccer scholarships at D1 schools. Partials, sure, but full rides - nada.

As someone else posted, you are better off focusing on academics, playing sports, then considering a strong D3 school (TCNJ, Montclair, Rowan) and getting an academic scholarship. They will give consideration if you play sports...make sense?

The reality is 99% aren't getting D1 money, let alone even consideration. Play because you enjoy it, and if it works out that you have a path forward in college, so be it.

One more point - the comment made about relationships with college coaches - do not underestimate that. I know a few (even related to a D2 head coach), and that can open doors. By all means, ask the club coach if you are concerned.

Also - coaches recruit FAMILIES as much as players

Read: Some of you blowhards may hinder your daughter's collegiate aspirations, if they be on the soccer pitch.

That great!!! So glad that PDA decided not to invite IGFAU14 they would have rained on their parade. Maybe next they will be courageous enough to play them

Anonymous said...

Maybe if GFA was a little more humble with success they would be invited. PDA and MF certainly don't need GFA.

Anonymous said...

...to beat them

I agree

They avoid teams at every level

Nothing new

IGFA should have their own college showcase. I'm sure that Middlesex County College, Devry Institute and University of Phoenix would show up.

Anonymous said...

Igfa will go to pda college showcase next year and will play in the non-ecnl bracket.

Anonymous said...

Nah, dude - GFA will defend at Delco

Are perfectly happy away from that mess, not unlike many other top quality organizations

Anonymous said...

Plus there are no points at PDA showcase. At Delco we can rack up points to stay #1 in the universe for a useless web site.

Anonymous said...

please stop. why so much jealousy? so much hate for what? match fit and pda why so much animosity?

let igfa alone whoever comes here is not a parent is just somebody that wants to start trouble. Let them keep working . you didn't see (beside one that left) any gfa players in those so call top teams tryouts (as a better of fact is the other way around).
iigfa applied for the pda showcase and was not accepted. preliminary acceptance were made by the pda splash coach (he left now but you could ask him). maybe a concidence or maybe igfa is really not good enough to play there. maybe HBC and others are better. maybe nothing is enough anyway or maybe it was a very smart business decision to keep them out.. that is totally ok. nobody here want to focus on these teams. let them focus on their training and their detailed hard work.
and thank you for all your suggestions but again do not worry about college etc.. they will manage.
please go back and lets talk about the top five teams in nj THE REAL ONE AND THE FUTURE ONE: nj elite , wildcats , stallion etc.. THOSE ARE IMPORTANT STUFF.
leave the girls alone and focus on your teams do not provoke negative reactions , the girls do not deserve this.

please go back and focus

Anonymous said...

2:09 why you care so much about igfa? it bothers you that they are doing good? sorry but they are. your sarcasms shows how instead to be happy for a group of girls that through hard working obtain good results representing our state properly around, we are all negative and full of hates. great example we are teaching our kids about sports.
you should be ashamed.

enough about igfa, who cares. let's keep it to soccer talk.

2:43 absolutely do that , thank you!

Why bash Old Bridge? They have kept a team together for years in an environment where everyone is looking for the next best thing. The coaches are (for lack of a better descriptive word) different, loud and probably never played the game. But they do care about the players and are emotionally connected to the team. They are just an OK team nothing more and nothing less - just let them be who they are - I'm sure that they would love to play GFA, but realistically they would probably lose 99 of 100 games, but they would play and compete.

Anonymous said...



From what I here there are several decent teams that play in EDP that are seeking some players for next year - If your daughter is looking for a new team you may wish to check out - NJX, TRIC, WALL, Jackson. No they are not PDA or Match Fit ECNL teams, but they do play at a good level and are all very competitive teams. Those leaving NJCSA, Brick, Pt Pleasant and others un happy with NJ Wildcats, PDA or Match Fit may want to give these teams a very good look for their daughter.
