Exactly...girls just go out, have fun and play your best..learn from both your mistakes & successes, don't worry about the w's or l's your parents will do that for you..

Force is dropping fast! Not doing well in Region 1 & will finish 3rd most likely in EDP. Will those unstable parents erupt? Many will leave to go with old coach I'm sure.

Finishing 3rd is never the end of the world and just being IN Region 1 is a positive

Rock on, NJ Force

Being in Region 1 Premier is nice recognition for the Force, however wouldn't get too comfortable as it looks likely they won't be back next year. Colonial league maybe, but they won't be back in the Premier league. Good team, aren't fundamentally sound though, and not a great team that Premier requires you over time to be. I can see why people jump all over the Force, some of the most brutal parents out there. Someone should tell the dad that likes to coach from the side where opposing parents sit to zip it. Kinda sad watching him shout instructions during a game that more than half the time are the wrong set of instructions to his daughter and other teammates.

Someone please tell me how NJ Force score on set plays...haven't seen them score on any set plays when we played them and we play them a lot. I think they are a good team but lack a lot of dept just like all other teams on this blog

What exactly happened to the Sharks? More importantly - when? They were registered for August tournaments and were a team until early August - and then . . .

Careful who you trust and what they tell you.

NJX will be lucky to be around next year. Coach has broken up 3 teams including the sharks over last summer when the team was formed for U13 and left those kids without a team. Don't forget Matchfit will pull these kids to help their program. Last year MF destroyed the NJX team to bring kids to their ECNL and NPL teams.

Anonymous said...

The very near future soccer model will include smaller club programs into ECNL, NPL etc. it's already starting now. the bigwigs are discovering that not all top players want to leave their team for that atmosphere and that the competition these smaller or independant clubs bring is sometimes better than what they play against now. See SOCCER PLUS ELITE ECNL -all ages. Awful. No recourse right now to get rid of the club. Must be fun to travel a few hours for a game to blow them away 8-0 in the elite, highly competitive . ECNL

Agree with 935, as this upcoming weekend will show, non ECNL teams will compete and in many cases exceed the performance of ECNL teams. Happened in JC in ALL age groups. Will happen again in PDA.

Wow prelim brackets for delco is a big FU to some nj teams. How do they flight these things??. Watching hills and b elite over nj force crush? Breakers of Mass in 3rd ? Copa and IGFA in bottom? Americans in 4th bracket? WTF. And it's not ECNL favoritism from an ECNL tourney. Just bad bracketing.

Anonymous said...


The coach with issues at Force, coaches the crush team, not the Lightning. He is trying to start his own club. He is a rec coach at best, never played the game at a high level, no soccer knowledge, spends his time yelling at refs during games. Has no business coaching a team at any level. He is a smoke and mirrors person. Just trying to milk parents out of $$$. Who coaches a team then charges families fee's for one on one training with the daughter? Just wrong in so many ways. How can he teach if he can't even demonstrate how to do something? Basically the guy is a cartoon.

He will EXPOSE HIMSELF again.

I would suspect they are just as you described. Preliminary. The brackets will be fixed

Tournaments have teams uploaded randomly then go back in to flight as all tournaments through Got Soccer are done the same way so relax with Americans in 4th flight.

Seems that you are misrepresenting the truth or you are misinform.
Chelsea became the Cosmos, the following year the Cosmos folded.
She wasn't the Coach of Chelsea, when she left Chelsea with her children.
Don't see how she was responsible for the Cosmos folding.
Don't know the story on the TRIC Revolution, however just fill in blanks as you will.
When she left the Sharks there was still thirteen players and five parents with coaching licensees. They had a choice to continue or move on. You can draw any conclusions you like but get the story correct.
Oh... and by the way! she is the assistant coach on NJX! Once again, misinformation from you.
I hope I gave you a big enough spoon to stir the pot.

Anonymous said...

Chelsea got bad under her & players left even after she was removed. Them she kept interfering with Cosmos taking players so they folded then took over Sharks & after telling everyone to stay bailed in late July which is very classy! Also will be the downfall of NJX which no one will go there with her reputation. Sad for Holmdel. Want to know truth talk to people she had lied to from the teams she coached.

Anonymous said...

Trsa Chelsea and Trsa Cosmos are the same team! Coach's kids left Chelsea at u10 and went to the Sharks...Chelsea team still existed. The next year they changed the name to cosmos. In Jackson LC ended up with the parents that this blog always bashes, who left the Sharks to go to the Force because of DF. Tric revolution started because of the BS board at trsa. BL in particular! And LC left the sharks in the first week of July, going into U13, not august like was posted. And the sharks didn't have to fold. They had someone willing to coach and at least 12 players. The parents choice! And I do know all of this because I had firsthand knowledge from all the teams. LC's kids were never even on cosmos. That team imploded mid year bc of the team mom SB and the bad management of the coach DO. Then those kids had no place to play in February. So tell me, how is that one coach responsible for 3 teams (Chelsea, cosmos, sharks). Troll. Troll. Troll.

They didn't go to force because of DF, they actually manipulated DF to start a team, because they have to be be in control of there daughters play time, and then got him removed. Now they run this new coach too.

Matchfit is a joke.... Can't win a game to save their lives.... But we keep paying........

Anonymous said...

You just have to laugh at this. what a joke

The NJ Stallions have grown from having just 2 girls teams 18 months ago (before I arrived), to having 10 girls teams currently. In the 15 months since I arrived, the club has gained NPL Status (National Premier League) and currently boasts 4 Top Nationally ranked teams and several Regional and State ranked teams. As a club we are currently recognized as the best Girls club in the North of NJ, with the most talent in that particular region. The level of coaching offered across a very strong staff is testament to that growth. I can guarantee that the club will grow even further to a minimum of 15 teams at the culmination of this Spring's tryout season.


All A teams across each age group competes at the very highest levels such as:
NPL
Region 1 Premier League
Jefferson Cup
Stars Of Massachusetts tournament
WAGS Tournament
PDA Kick Off.


The U15+ teams attend the Nations top Showcase events and attracts as many as 75 coaches at D1 level per game, such as:
Disney Showcase
CASL Showcase
Surf Cup
NEWSS Showcase
PDA Showcase
Dallas International Girls Cup


I can guarantee with the NJ Stallions current Status and reputation with the older teams within Region 1 that we will be positioned in the top flights of each of the Showcases above when we get to those age groups. The same can be said about the League's that we compete in (Region 1 Premier League and NPL). At the U15+ age groups it becomes extremely important for the players future to be in the right environment to be seen by the right School. The NJ Stallions Freedom can offer your daughter the exposure she needs and deserves, while all the time continually developing her individual game. IT IS IMPORTANT TO GET ON BOARD NOW AND DEVELOP YOUR GAME TO BE GOOD ENOUGH AT THE SHOWCASE YEARS.


The U16 NJ Stallions Dynamite team (the team I have coached since U8 when they first kicked a ball) has already had 5 players committed to top D1 program's as Sophomore's, they are:


Tomi Kennedy - Princeton (#1 Academic School in the US)
Samantha Rosette - UVA (#2 Soccer School in the US)
Ida Di Clemente - Villanova
Olivia Szeker-Cortes - UNCW
Delaney Suarez - Seton Hall
(*Each player earning full scholarships*) - The Entire team will play D1 Soccer, no doubt about it, the others are just being more patient in making their decisions.


As you can see the NJ Stallions are a club with foundation and serious growth. The program is designed to elevate the players level of competition and is dedicated to the individual development of its players. The Coaches work extremely hard off the field and on the field to ensure the players are getting the best possible attention to grow as a player. THE FACT REMAINS THAT NJ STALLIONS TEAMS ALWAYS GET STRONGER AND STRONGER AS THEY GET OLDER, TEAMS NEVER LOSE PLAYERS. I CANNOT SAY THE SAME FOR OTHER CLUBS


If you wish to sign up to the tryouts or if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email me personally:

NJX will not be around after another year if they make it past this year! Some girls are already doing training with other teams. MT and LC are done....MFA DOC was stated already that he does not see any ECNL quality players on that team currently. LC will take the best possible offer for her daughters and leave MT in the dust along with the rest of the girls. Watch it is coming.

MF DOC needs to worry about how many ECNL quality players are on his current team. Answer: very few.

Anonymous said...

@6:56 So it sounds like you just described PDA's win over Copa in which Copa completely outplayed Madrid and still lost. PDA's first goal was a Copa own goal on a corner kick and their last goal with under 2 minutes left was a 35 yard direct kick on a terrible call (great shot though). Lets also not forget how Copa sailed 4-5 shots over the bar.

Either way, you see how this works?

Tournament opens with Splash vs Barons. Nice matchup to kick off with. Good luck to all. Bring sunscreen!

Copa is a better team than freehold. Outplayed comment way off between Mad/Cop. Even match like last time for both teams. Get a hold of yourself. Good shots on both sides. Two different types of games to be sure! Go play freehold and see.

Tiny man massive ego. If SC is such a miracle worker why hasn't he lasted at any club? If one of those girls got a full ride it would be amazing for them but as we all know unlikely. No way all 5 of them did and if they did it is not for soccer. But maybe SC is taking credit for their academic achievements as well

Copa was the beneficiary of playing a LVU team that had to play Friday night in a PA state cup game they lost. They lost that game 1-0, but could of been at least 6-0, were physically outplayed the entire game and came into the weekend beaten up, and LVUs results on Saturday showed it. The point? Copa got a gift by having them 1st as LVU regrouped win Sunday am allowing Copa to back into the final.

Let's keep everything in perspective. PDA Splash & Hornets palates a hard schedule so kudos even though it wasn't a successful weekend they played good teams. Congrats to FC Copa & NJ Crush for winning their flights. Whether you think Crush is still a top team or not & whether you think Copa is on the rise or not they won the games they were given. SJEB did well playing a top schedule. Force & TRIC both represented well in their flights as well. Force needed a good weekend & they had one. TRIC is a solid team that doesn't come on here bragging about being anything they just go about their business so congrats. Freehold as expected struggled as they are clearly on the way down & need to be placed in lower flights to be successful. Should have been in the same flight as TRiC & GFA which maybe now they will be quiet. Complained about seeding yet didn't even make finals so clearly they were flighted correctly. Also good to see NJ do well as other States knock teams but they showed they can compete. Good luck to all the teams the rest if the season.

Anonymous said...

LOL

GFA "complained" that Splash is coddled as a top tier team and doesnt produce.

They were right

They "complained" that they were flighted lower than they should have been based on where SPLASH was flighted

Had Splsh been in second flihgt maybe GFA doesnt say A WORD

ANYWAY........

GFA could have won a flight up, though they lost where they were. Not like the science in all this is exact. Certinly they could have competed well higher up.....Splash (tourney directors) knows this.

Always a slap in the face to wish to be seeded higher........and tossed aside to lower flight.

That it happened after a win vs Splash - and in Splash's tournament - is what burned. But the king is...well....king - and can do as it wishes

Anonymous said...

@11:47 Are you that thick headed that you can't see the difference between where the Splash played and where you played? Holy crap, I'm not even a PDA parent and I see that. They lost 2 games 1-0 and beat the team that won the flight. You couldn't even win your side of the FIFTH division!!! Are you off your rocker? How could you win a division up when you couldn't even beat out TRIC to win your bracket?

Anonymous said...

1147, your obsession with Splash is a little embarassing. You sound like a rejected little school girl.
Maybe Splash should have bailed out after the first two games and not even played on Sunday. That would have made your weekend even better. Is it possible that their team made progress this weekend despite disappointing RESULTS? All we are looking at is results, right? If the mighty PDA doesn't win every game, it must be a lost weekend. Certainly no positives to be taken from either of those defeats. And in those two losses, they were clearly outplayed and didn't even belong on the same field with those first two teams.

This GFA guy is ridiculous. Didn't even make it out of 5th bracket group play and you are saying you could have won a flight up and competed much higher up.

GFA criticizes Splash for only beating the top flight winner and then claims they should have won a flight higher when they didn't even make the final in a flight at the bottom. The only real competition they had was TRIC and they lost.
I think there's finally something everyone can agree with on this blog - GFA poster is delusional and just plain clueless about soccer. Can't admit defeat and ignores the obvious when it comes recognizing to better teams.
For reality sake Mr GFA - you lost your bracket at the bottom of the tournament to a second division EDP team. You lost your first two EDP games and have no shot at that division crown. You advanced in State Cup on a bye and soon will be eliminated in that as well. The TSF affiliation will not save your team and they will fall apart because they cannot win the big games and will stay in the lower brackets.

If IGFA felt they got screwed with the low flighting the only way to prove it is to win the flight and prove the tourn directors wrong. Complaining and then losing makes you look like the obvious fool you are!!

Yes, of course. No way Splash wins that game against FC Virginia if it meant something. FCV sat all of their best players to get ready for Tophat and let their 3 subs play the whole game. Coach was overheard telling players to try and keep the ball in own end after they get a quick 1-0 lead so they can practice playing out of their own end. Also, don't worry about giving up corner after corner and free kick after free kick because they need to work on defending their set pieces. Splash can only win the meaningless games.

ECNL, with its recent growth to about 80 clubs, has certainly become top heavy. I think the original plan to get all of the best girls' teams playing against each other at one venue several times a year is still what it's about. Once you weed out the weaker teams with league and showcase events, you end up with the cream of the crop fighting it out at nationals. These are the events where you can really test your team against the very best. Even though there will always be a handful of non-ecnl teams that can compete with the top ecnl teams, I would say if you had a true ranking of the 20 best teams in the country at every age group from U15 to U18, 80% would be ecnl teams. That in itself makes it still the best platform to showcase players at the highest level.
As far as the weaker teams go, I personally have no problem with a league having some weaker competition at the bottom of each divison, especially as the girls get older. These games allow for coaches to try different things, give players who don't play as much some added playing time, and to even allow some top players to rest injuries. There will still be plenty of hard fought rivalry games and nationals, playoffs to play in. Every league in every sport has its haves and have nots from pro to high school. ECNL is no different and as long as there still exists the ability for the best to play against the best, then that's just fine with me.

On the Boys side. (The sane side in my eyes. )Has the Dallas cup. Invitation only to the best TEAMS in the nation. Not clubs. Each TEAM must earn its right each year for the invitation. Not just along for the ride because of membership in a pay to play club or pseudo academy. That is the best of the best. No need for all,this crap on the girls side. It s only lining pockets.

Anybody knows the result of sta game for the state cup?

PDA tournament pts are out which raises questions.
Top flight 10,000
SJEB semi pts
2nd flight 8,500
Force finalist pts
STA semi pts
3rd flight 4,375???
NJ Crush championship pts
4th flight 8,000???
FC Copa champions pts
5th flight 4,000
TRIC finalist pts
GFA & Stronghold semi pts
6th flight 1,563
TSF finalist pts

Question GFA is a top team yet they don't even make the finals of a 4,000 or flight? They picked up 368 pts wow!
Question why would anyone take TSF serious when they can't even win a flight valued at 1,563? They picked up 194 pts wow!
Question why is the 4th flight almost double the value if the 3rd flight? Copa received 5,205 pts while Crush only received 1,394 pts.

Because PDA view of who's a better teams e how they grop isn't the same as rankings . Fr example MF Was in that division and isn't ranked well. Less points.

Match Fit killed the 3rd flight for the Crush, what a shame.

Anonymous said...

Doesn't matter where the flight is. The amount of points in a flight is averaged across the teams in that flight and their current total and national ranking. 4th flight had more teams with more points than 3rd flight.

Doesn't mean it was a better flight... just worth more points.

Before the weekend :

Blue Flight Points

NJ Crush - 14500
Syracuse - 1000
Match Fit - 0
Stars of Mass - 103
Century - 3000
SoccerPlus - 500
NEFC - 500
Freehold - 14500

Only 2 teams with over 10000 points. The rest very low.

Gold Flight Points

GPS - 12000
PDA Madrid - 4000
Real - 9000
Empire - 500
Copa - 14000
Lehigh Valley - 12000
Holmdel - 11000
East Meadow - 7000

4 teams with over 10000, plus a 7000 and a 9000. Worth more when averaged.

You also have to subtract 20% of your nationally ranked points from the total points available and that becomes YOUR teams available points. In other words if Team A's flight is worth 8,000 points and their national points are 10,000, you take 2,000 points (20% of 10,000) from the flight value and now they are playing for 6,000 points. Win the flight and you get them all, finalist would receive 3,000, semifinalist would receive 1,500. So higher ranked teams have more taken away when the 20% is removed.

I have no idea what I just read about the points system..and read it a couple of times...heres all you need to know of what a sham these points are...Copa won flight 4 and got 5200 pts...NJ Crush won a higher flight 3 and got 1300. Copa moved to #4 in state rankings and Crush dropped to 7 for winning a higher bracket...not gonna jump on them cuz you can only play what they give you but I dont think we should see on here how great copa is with the new rankings...although sadly we probably will, and even more sad are the people who believe these gotsoccer point rankings.

Delco 3rd flight is weak. Freehold may have a chance to win something.

Anybody - State cup results?

Anonymous said...

Got soccer isn't perfect at all but def has merit

The third bracket was completely miscast by PDA. The match fit team and the fc stars club (that was not the fc stars ECNL,or NPL-they have a ton of teams at u-13) have no established history. I think PDA gave those teams a nod because the clubs are ECNL. The result is what you saw. Stars team and MF should have been seeded lower. Blame PDA.

does anyone have the delco bracket link?

delco bracket is in a couple posts ago, just do a litte looking on your own...
I wouldnt expect the bracket to remain...it show accepted teams and how many potential team are in each bracket but I would say these are by no means firm placements.

@10:35 Not focused on them at all...merely reading the previous post on how gotsoccer arrives at the points and how some benefit and how some are hurt. It is my opinion on the gotsoccer points system...what was the point of your post, besides to be judgmental on my opinion...what do you care how much I focus or not focused on it...
besides...cant you tell I'm a crush parent...no wait...I'm a Copa parent...No wait Im a PDA parent...no wait...GFA ...no wait our daughters are on the same team and I never really liked you...just ridiculous....btw, guess your daughters team benefits by the point system, cuz not to many people will reply saying yeah I agree, but you'll always get someone to disagree...especially when its anonymous.

Anonymous said...

11:09 You the get the biggest "HUH?!?!?!?!" of all time.

How about you put your beer down and try to focus for a second. My daughter's team doesn't benefit from anything, they didn't get ANY points this weekend. I just happen to have half a brain and can comprehend how the GotSoccer point system works. You on the other hand struggle with it.

You obviously just want to whine about something you don't even understand, just like you do about everything else. It's easy to pick you out because of your constant use of "..."

My thought is, you are probably the parent everyone on your daughter's team hates because you do nothing but whine all the time.

@11:09, the mere fact you are commenting on Got Soccer points means you are focused to them, otherwise you'd brush it off and say to yourself no big deal.

"I don't think we should see on here how great copa is with the new rankings...although sadly we probably will," Wow, really? Is it keeping you up at night? Who cares?

This isn't an attack. Got Soccer is just a system to rank teams that unfortunately is used by many to judge teams or to flight tournaments to rank a youth game, and many buy into the Kool-Aid so they can say "my daughters team is ranked X in the state, blah blah blah. They should put "FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY", but no one can make money off of that.

Your "..."'s are ramblings that make no sense. But I'm almost positive your posts are almost always complaining about something or some team - because your daughters team is better just no one recognizes it.

Anonymous said...

We haven't heard anything from anyone about this past weekend. Everyone very quiet. Nobody bragging from Force about making Finals, nobody from Crush or Copa bragging about winning.

Nobody obviously talking about GFA...

And of course... PDA teams VERY quiet after a poor weekend.

Troll must be on vacation
And GS points, nobody on this blog believes in the points rankings, not sure who is debating who, don t think anybody at SJEB thinks they are the 4 th best team in the land. C'mon Man, give me a break.. Has a lot to do more with how many points events a team plays in.
But wait SJEB #1 GS , beat PDA , the anointed #1,
So there is some validity, here in NJ& what if SJEB then goes on to win the state cup also.yup #1 for sure....except.......ah shucks the Americans are missing.
damn those Americans

Extremely quiet this week on here.
I guess PDA, Holmdel and GFA can't self promote while bashing others - and at the same time the Copa basher can't say anything either. They evidently represent the majority of the posts and the silence is deafening.

I thought GFA had an easy walk to the state cup semi but now that's a big question mark. Barons look a little better now than earlier in the season. Splash should get to semi, but now the Force game doesn't look like a cake walk. Maybe Brick or Tric makes a run? Very quiet around here now that PDA tournament raised a lot of questions.

Anonymous said...

Interesting game tonight. STA has experience but have a new Coach whether that helps or hurts remains to be seen & Hornets are a nice team that can move the ball but don't have a real finisher. This has OT written all over it. Good luck to both teams. When does the Splash play whoever TSF is?

COPA you have to win some top tournaments in the top bracket or win a couple of state cup tournaments to even get in the conversation. You have a long way to go, MATE.

Still can't believe the coach posts on this site...

Brick should win it all !!!

Depends which hornets team shows up , the one that gave up 9 goals last Sat. Or got the shut out on sunday.
Maybe some defensive vulnerabilities , will take STA by a goal 2-1

Why the Copa & Brick comments? Looking to start something against the smaller clubs? Brick should beat TRIC & Force but can't se them beating Splash. Should be SJEB vs Splash final. My predictions are final four teams STA, SJEB, Brick & Splash.

Anonymous said...

11:54 - if we only spoke about NJ teams that won the top bracket at big tournaments... We'd never speak about anyone.

Just leave Copa alone. Just because your daughter ha a bad weekend... Doesn't give you the right to talk about other teams and coaches. For the last time... Coach doesn't come on here.

Worry about your own team and just be quiet. It's getting pathetic that you keep on bringing up the same topic over and over to try and start something.

STA should win 2 or 3 nil tonight unless all the talk about STA players looking to move has some merit to it.
