Funny thing though is that these days you never know exactly what team you are joining, since players you think will be there may in fact not be.

Hey rainman - may want to take your probability assessments to vegas or closer to atlantic city. put me down for some $$$

Anonymous said...

Yeah, gotsoccer put me in the poor house - youth soccer rankings has made me win it back to break even :)

Seriously, the reason I showed this was to show that there really isn't much of a difference once you remove the top say 10 teams in the country @ 18 players per team x 10 = 180 current freshman/sophmores. The ECNL events are nice because you have all those teams in one place but by no means do those players have an advantage on any Non-ECNL player. There is quality all over the states - it just comes down to being good and showing well when the spotlight is on you

Anonymous said...

agreed. however, the advantage in the ECNL is that is where the coaches go. like it or not. and, that is the ultimate goal.

Anonymous said...

Next season the might ECNL will be second to the DA.

And therein lies the problem " the ultimate goal". When my daughter first laced up her cleats at 7 I told her this was to get her to play in college, not to have fun and be active etc. Much like when I sent her off to kindergarten. The ultimate goal was not the education and the experience but getting her accepted into Harvard.

mine too. see you there.

why is that term "ultimate goal" a problem?

aren't most kids playing at this age in particular in high competitive soccer trying to play in college as well? very, very few are playing just for fun at this level anymore. even multi-sport kids had to pick one by now, sadly.

Anonymous said...

My daughter plans to play in college but she is enjoying the ride and each game. She is happy and nervous at the big events where there are coaches but she truly loves to play. So it's not exactly her " ultimate goal" so much as a nice opportunity that she has, given the high level she has worked hard and been fortunate to play at.

Anonymous said...

And this is exactly what colleges coaches struggle with. They want the players that love to play and compete... not the ones whose entire goal was to use soccer to get into/pay for college. Those kids that don't truly love it hurt their college programs.

Anonymous said...

3:55 - i doubt there are many of those out there. this game is too physical on the body to think that is what a large majority of kids are doing, in particular at the higher levels. there is still a love for the game, too.

most coaches in my kid's recruiting process as far as college didn't just make a one a done evaulation, either, to get a real feel of the kid's desire and heart.

now, with the rigors and demands of college being what it is as far as academics and athletics (it's like having two jobs at once; having had older college scholar athletes), that can test a kid's love for the game and that college as well. so the love of the sport may still be there, but the inability to juggle all of the high pressure demands can become too crushing.

Anonymous said...

understood. and welcome to the reality of coaches that aren't coaching multiple teams to pay their bills. this is it, one team, one goal, to win. their job depends on it. and if you don't perform, your playing time or longevity with the team depends on it.
and professors who don't give a rat's butt that you are an athlete, too as far as assignments and tests.
real life 101.

PDA parents must be on vacation without wifi or cell connection...

Anonymous said...

No, they just started their summer jobs to pay the crazy prices that PDA demands. I hear they charges $5,000 not counting travel expenses, winter league, or uniforms. While other PDA players play for free. Is this true?

Anonymous said...

@2:36, here is what I can tell you about all of this. Clubs will reduce costs or allow players to play for free if it makes the team or club better. You never hear about this because the parents or player is not going to reveal this and cause problems. it is done behind closed doors and in the end benefits everyone. Goal Keepers or a great Center back or forward may get this for example. or even a great center mid

Anonymous said...

It benefits everyone except the parents who pay extra to cover the cost of the free rides. The money is coming from somewhere.

Let's use PDA at $5,000 per player example with 4 girls getting a free ride on a 24 player roster. If everyone was to pay the same it would only cost $4,166.66 per family.

Who would ever want to pay over $800 to support another family. Especially when the kid shows up to practice in a Lexus and you are working two jobs.

Anonymous said...

Lmao...complete garbage. There are kids who receive scholarships or some form of assistance but it is not picked up by the other parents. And tuition is not $5,000.

People who aren't happy with their station in life are generally the ones who criticize others.

Anonymous said...

And it is based on financial need not the quality of the player. You really think PDA needs to pay for players? hahaha hilarious

Anonymous said...

Travel is extra and the ECNL has a crap setup. If any of the teams make the final four in Chicago get to go home and then to San Diego. Why would you stay another couple of days and see it through when you can spend more money for tickets and a new round of hotels. Such a rip off.

Oh and I am the previous poster. I am not thrilled with the ECNL but I do want to point out lies when they are spread on here. let's hope GDA is better from this perspective. and for arguments sake, maybe the club keeps a little of the annual tuition from all players and put this in a scholarship fund, this could be possible. but it's the same tuition year over year and only changes with age groups...not exact but along the lines of 9-11 is one price 12-13another, 15-16, 17+ etc...

I am talking about the 2001 Princeton NPL team - which other could it be in this age group?

Anonymous said...

Serious question, how many NPL players at this level are committed? I'm not looking to debate which league is better I am just considering options for my daughter. NPL is much closer so if girls are getting looks then no need for ECNL. And is there anywhere I can see how many for ECNL, NPL, etc... Thank you in advance.

Anonymous said...

So Princeton GFA NPL 2001 is better than SUSA - yet SUSA allowed ZERO goals in league play (9 games)

Gotcha.

Anonymous said...

1:30 your assuming that information is public. Most parents/players don't make it public unless a website is asking for the information to be provided. I doubt once a kid gets a verbal the first thing they do is email soccer wire or topdrawer of their commitment.

If a team wants to travel to national events like some leagues make their teams. Top teams have the Surf Cup, Players Cup (Vegas), Disney, CASL, Jefferson & PDA all take NPL teams. Plenty of opportunities for all players. The question is what event will the team play in. Plenty of other events that are loaded with D2 and D3 schools also.

At the end of the day it comes down to the player. Players get coaches to their games and those coaches talk to their club coach (FACT) - it depends on what they do at these events all on the player.

Anonymous said...

I can only speak from my experience. My daughter plays region 1 league and EDP. This was really her first her first year showcasing. Did some tournaments PDA, Jefferson Cup, NEWSS, and a couple of EDP tournaments. So out of all the tournaments there has been 11 schools expressing interest. 3D1, 5D2, and 3D3. IDK if this helps

Anonymous said...

Interest is nothing without the offer. What is your club coach doing to change the interest into a verbal offer. Our coach calls the college coaches and helped 4 of our girls get verbal offers so far. And nobody cares about the region 1 league so I wouldn't brag about that.

Dude, this is a 2001 board Princeton was not in the national league.
Not SUSA's problem Princeton can't field a team to compete in 2 age groups on their own. That's speak's volumes about the club actually.

Anonymous said...

Dude!! You must be new to this blog this year so let me bring you up to speed. Prior to the birth year change Princeton had a very strong team that was a mix of older 01s and younger 00s like every other team at that time. When the birth year was implemented the team split into the two birth year teams and fielded teams just fine. Since they had qualified for National League and had won high level tournaments with that group, that team stayed in tact for national league and those tournaments. in addition those players also played NPL and certain tournaments with their birth year. Same for the 17s. So in fact those 01 players were not there for the susa game as well as other games. As I am sure you know npl dates are rarely allowed to be moved which is part of the reason for not playing npl going forward. Now Im sure you will have some criticism of their structure but at least you have the facts straight and unless you are going to play there it is really none of your business anyway dude

Anonymous said...

Not new at all - this is a 2001 board could careless about the 2000 team and their national league game drama. As far as the 2001 team goes NY got the better of them pal 2-0 and that's all that matter SUSA FC NPL 01: 25 pts in 9 games with 0 GA while Princeton SA NPL-01 a close 2nd 21 pts in 8 games with 6 GA vs the same teams.

YouthSoccer rankings has them as a push

Did PDA really need her? She's a midfielder and i thought they had lots of bodies.

Anonymous said...

2:28 I think this is where the disconnect is - forget PDA the way we knew them this would apply to any GDA club. This is a bout the player and player's desire to play YNT and maybe someday 1st team NT. The best way and the easiest way for that is to play in the GDA.

Playing college is second fiddle since that is going to be a lock for most of these kids if not all. So if they roster 24 kids those kids all probably have verbals already or serious interest from schools.

It speaks volumes for any player that is a regular starter on a GDA team. like it or not that is the way of the future - nothing any league can do about it, nor should they want to. This is not about club or league it's about the player and wanting to play for the USA and since the GDA is the USSF it's one step below in the pyramid. The GDA is what ODP wanted to be and what the ECNL couldn't be. I say this because the ECNL was in place all they had to do was play nice and it was a done deal maybe they did play nice since most of the clubs are ECNL clubs.

My 2 cents Rainman

Anonymous said...

I agree 100% that GDA is the way of the future. Again, "future" and will only aid the younger age groups. Our U16s are already in the pipeline and the GDA won't be fully on its feet in time to help us. If it happened the same time the boys got their DA we would be having a much different discussion.

We are ECNL now and decided to stay with know rather than switch to unknown in the most crucial 2 years. A better offer could have come if we moved, but we are happy with the verbal we just got. I am glad we dodged the entire GDA bullet. This soccer crap is changing every day and I can't keep up.

I don't blame any for taking a chance and moving to GDA. Lets check back in 2 years and see who made out the best. I bet all will be very equal.

It is PLAYER development not TEAM development. All are equal in the eyes of US Soccer. College Coaches don't care about the score, just the player.

Thank you!! I see this whole "my kids DA will be better than your kids DA" all the time on here. Scouts don't take notes on the team or the final score, they watch the PLAYER. Coaching matters, competition level matters, and playing where scouts will be watching matters. A team win is a bonus.

Anonymous said...

yea I agree....but the DA added way to many bad clubs to effect this age group,they should have stayed ECNL at this age

Anonymous said...

hahaha. yeah, i think those way too many bad clubs will be just fine; pretty sure US Soccer does as well.

The year hasn't even started yet and the ignorant are pegging clubs as bad. If a club was bad US Soccer wouldn't have chosen them for the DA!

Anonymous said...

agree heavily with 1:15PM. in the end it is the club and coaches responsibility and trainers as well to have the team win matches. You cannot blame that on 13/14/15/16 year old kids or parents. Many times I hear from coaches, "it is the parents fault" And yes I have been around the block like a penthouse model has.

Stars of Mass is like PDA on steroids. There are so many branches within the state of MA of Stars, that all those best players of those individual teams are promoted go to the ECNL team.(historically anyway)
There are so many layers to get through to get to the pinnacle team.
To start and stay on that team is Uber competitive.

PDA gets what they deserve. They take girls from the outside the club and claim as theirs instead of promoting within the club. These girls come and get what they can't get from their original club then move on. Way to go PDA!

PDA and Halks played the best soccer. What happened? Physicality won over soccer. High wind, small fields, thick tall grass helps the ones who blast the ball and run. And these are the winners. PDA 7 Halks - nice soccer. Unfortunately, it is not enough when it doesn't matter much.

In the end, it's a game to be won. You figure out how to adapt your style of play to the conditions and the opponent. Kudos to those that can figure that out and come away with a win.

Are you calling Ohio Elite a kick and run team?

Maybe they pressed PDA's defense and it broke - as is what occurred when Match Fit beat PDA earlier in the regular season.

Just guessing. I am sure the Ohio team has its share of technical players.

Geez.... so much chest pounding going on here. Having 6 daughters, all playing competitively, most of the comments on here are incredibly arrogant & immature. The DA didn't exactly work out the way they planned it to.... as in, weren't as many GREAT players interested in giving up thier lives completely. So, older DA teams had to pull younger players, as well as mediocre (at best) outside players (I know quite a few) just to field teams. Anyway, the end result is, the ECNL & DA have killed each other.... both watering each other down & not exactly fielding the best teams/players, especially in PA, where ECNL was already watered down. It's so horribly nauseating, for me, watching this stuff happen. If you're good, guess what....YOU'RE GOOD! Stop insulting each other. Love & Peace, Mom of a player at a decent D1 university, who stayed loyal to her higher level mediocre club team for 13 years. She was discovered at an ID camp. The first compliment the coach gave her, was that he was impressed by her loyalty to her team, even though, she could've left to showcase herself more. Stop bashing each other, and start giving advice.

Anonymous said...

This is just an observation from an old (very old) futbol guy..and this may be rhetorical. But what makes 1 style of play better than the others? I don't doubt that if your on this board your daughter probably plays at a high level and is probably technically skilled. Individual skill are what the scouts are looking for.
Unfortunately maybe to everyone's detriment, when our girls were at a formidable age the best team in the world played this tiki-taka, quick, possession style soccer and oh yea, they had one of the best players of a lifetime that could penetrate and score when needed, they also had two of the best midfielders in Xavi and Iniesta..ever. But is this what we hold as the gold standard of good soccer?

Kick and run is a horrible description, used at U8, when that was literally how it was played.
If you were playing your little pass around in midfield and there was a turnover and
the ball was played into space on the wing, a speedy winger would run onto the ball and create off a scoring chance off that counter...is that kick and run? would you call the Sir Alex era at Man Utd, kick and run?
Would the Serie A league be too boring and not exciting enough for y'all because it's defense first...would you just label it as "parking the bus"?

Got news for all you parents that think the beautiful game will be played in college...have you ever watched a D1 soccer game...tell me where physicality doesn't win 9 out of 10 times.

Scouts are looking for an individual, never a team.
Leagues, no matter what 3 or 4 letters they represent are for the parents and so are wins and titles or that matter.
Ever see your daughter an hour after a crushing loss, probably laughing and hanging out with her teammates while mommy and daddy are still fuming, complaining that we had possession but got beat by a kick and run team.

Anonymous said...

9:12 I agree with everything you said but the last statement - why do you generalize? how long does a fan talk about their team's loss? probably about as long as any parent. For someone who calls himself an old guy - shocked you don't see parents as fans and nothing more when it comes to soccer and parents when they need to pick their kid up because of the environment of youth soccer if needed (playing time issues and hurt feelings some take a loss bad before they hang with their friends not team)

I'm sorry, 6 of the top teams on gotsoccer from NJ? Look at what they do. They go to big tournaments, play in tiers other than the top usually, grab points, and then take them back to NJ and they just feed off of each other with edp and both state cups. I guess you could say I'm hating the player and the game.

7:51 Granted youth soccer rankings takes into account for ecnl, and some other things, where gotsoccer falls behind with ecnl teams, youth soccer rankings has just as many teams scattered through the rankings that don't belong where they are. Saying one is better than the other is like arguing what creamer for your coffee is better. Personally, I prefer to look at both sites and try to get a feel for where teams stand. That and gotsoccer makes it easy to look at the big tournies where ecnl plays against non ecnl and you can get a feel how teams stack up with each other. With all that said, it's still any given Sunday.

a quick view of the YSR rankings for U16 and comparison of FC Bucks vs. Continental, it seems that FC Bucks was more successful in its season and played harder teams than Continental. FC Bucks played Real Colorado 2x's and 1st time tied and second time beat them. In NE Conference league play, Continental had 1 win. And Bucks was a Champs League Wildcard qualifier. It seems that Bucks had a more successful season which is what YSR said as well.

so am i. it's compared against other teams in the region and their records and level of teams played. not saying YSR is perfect, not at all (i am sure they will clean it up as there are some teams that are listed twice since regional stuff just wrapped up).

but, i have seen teams that participate in got soccer points hosting their own tourneys, inviting teams and then they set the points earned. most times, they are earning the points, some crazy amount. i was a member of one of those clubs. beating up on knowingly weaker teams to collect more points is not my idea of a good tourney or good soccer.

Already multiple players who had accepted a spot on the CS DA Team went to one practice and left club for another team. Their DA Team is very weak. They will lose the Girls DA after one year as they will be non-competitive.

CSA has not had a single DA practice yet. Roster has not been put out and no spots have been "officially" offered. They are having tryouts this week.

kid probably not invited or didn't get a spot. sour grapes most likely.

Anonymous said...

The DA conversation is a little interesting I guess. This if for a couple of different age groups. I do not think my daughter applies to DA, but is it free really? Uniforms and league play? I think you just pay for travel, but not sure. Also give it some time as other teams continue to break up and eventually move to this program. And with only 2 per state, sort of like ecnl, it should eventually attract the top players.

Anonymous said...

It is obvious now that our coach deceived us because he was nervous that loosing players will hurt "his" team. Sad thing is our club has the other GDA team and he held our girls from even trying out. Needless to say we are on the lookout for another home. Development is a fa├žade and only in name. The needs of the coach should not supersede the needs of the player. We would like to have at least been given an opportunity.

I know quite a few players who were begged to play on DA teams, TWO years up, because clubs couldn't field teams. I'm not lying. These are people (at least 10) who I know personally. Unfortunately, they drank the juice. Side note: My players have been on the same team since U8.... are not ECNL or Academy.... so, I'm not one of these obnoxious, arrogant, psycho parents, trying to prove one is better than the other. I've said it before, they hate each other because they're literally watering each other down... and, in especially in PA, it's disastrous. Was already watered down. Oh well. I just sit back, on the same team, happy, satisfied, watching nothing else working... people pissed... players hopping from team to team..... changes made... and nothing working.... people pissed again.... players hopping again.... and on and on and on. So lucky to be where we are.

Anonymous said...

PA Classics has 9 kids listed on the 99/00 DA team. Guessing that's the team begging for players. You said disaster in PA what's up at Penn Fusion? They already had solid teams. Unless a bunch of kids fled the ship they should be fine.

U16 is such a critical year for exposure that is usually when you see the hopping around. that's what i found anyway. sometimes you have to hop to the place that works for you and your family. not every club or team works as far as dynamics, exposure, coaching, positional coaching, etc.

my kid is doing GDA and she can't wait for it to start. She likes her team and her club and coaches, too. I am looking forward to college, though. Just pack a bag and go watch. lol
cherish this, though. it's part of the journey.

546 so there are 9 on age kids and the others are playups? Or are there kids that are added that aren't on it yet? If so about how many? Enough to complete a whole team? With half a team of playups they are going to get crushed. Are the play ups bottom roster 01s? If not they will also concede our 01/02 age group. Could get ugly at two ages. I would just keep the 01s strong and say well the 99/00 age is a waste this year anyway.

When you have to cheat to get into national championships, and the referee ignores the sideline ref calling for the foul......
https://1drv.ms/v/s!As3B_aAYUkgWg2dE19qflDtbQuSx

Anonymous said...

I cannot see what team that is. But that is a clear foul. You cannot truck the goal keeper when she is going up to get the ball. Know you can clearly see the black shirt defender pushing the white shirt player into the keeper. But her momentum to the ball was taking her there anyway. Clear foul, keeper would have caught the up ball. no goal. The center ref has to get in there and see that. But, here is the key for future. Put a baseline ref on each side of major matches and tournaments. perhaps semi finals, state cup semi's etc. it will not cost that much.

Anonymous said...

That's a great idea.

Refs make horrible calls all the time in every sport. Not saying all, I have seen some really good refs, but unfortunately too many bad ones and not enough good ones seems to be the norm. If the pros can't get good ones, how can youth?

Anonymous said...

I don't blame the player, it's the way they play and what they are instructed to do. I don't even blame the referee for missing the call. What is ridiculous to me though, is the fact that the assistant referee saw the foul, was waving his flag, and she flat out ignored him, didn't even go over and have a conversation as to what he saw. The goalie is buried into the goal with a player on top of her, your assistant referee is waving his flag, and all of that just gets ignored. It's sad to see at this level of play.....

Anonymous said...

ok, got it. You cannot see the ref in the video waiving flag. That is horrible the center ref would not confer on a goal. That should be waived off. My daughter is goal keeper. That is no goal. But agreed it is rarely called. I do believe center ref has to see that. I am surprised sideline did. But great call by sideline ref. If you have the baseline refs it would cost I believe about another $50-$75 per match? I think they are paid $25 each? That is what they do now in the pro's btw. And remember pro's now all have video replay. baseball, ice hockey, football for years. Why not soccer? Even a clear off sides that results in goal should be reviewed by video tape in college and up. Losing a title, or world cup because of missed off sides does not have to happen anymore. We have technology must use it

Anonymous said...

5:52 Yup. The recruiting is there. By "not working" I mean that so many things change from year to year... coaches coming & going, players team hopping constantly, different leagues being implemented, players being used (rather than developed) to get results. People are just so easily manipulated when they're told "your kid is now in the most elite place." What is ECNL anymore, with the DA now in existence? What will someone come up with next year? If recruiting stats are the basis for "success," I can tell you this, I personally know many players, who were recruited via ECNL, & went on to play college soccer. Most look back with regret, as the fun, loyalty, bonding & playing together to win (not just to showcase yourself) were not prioritized within the ECNL atmosphere. Years of what the sport was supposed to give them, were lost, and for what? Ya got recruited to play for 4 more years, which could've happened anyway. (Not a salty parent of a player who was cut. I have two playing mid level D1 on partial scholarships & others playing National League). This is not meant to insult anyone. As a former soccer player, it just makes me sad to see the sport & kids' love for the sport, being exploited.

5:46 oh, it's at Penn Fusion too. For example, the '00 DA team basically took anyone, even had to put '02's on the team. Point is, DA didn't quite work out the way they thought it would. Sure there are the PAC & PF players on the rosters who are holding political spots. There are just so many top players who wanted no parts of it. It is what it is.

Anonymous said...

I am really tired of the DA verses ECNL argument. No side will win until it all shakes out in the next few years. Our kids will be in college by the time a consensus is reached. Both leagues will bring scouts and both choices are good for our U16s. No big changes to recruiting will come in next 2 years. Scouts will use their time the way they see best and it will take time for them to see what league has a better payoff. The only looser will be whoever's showcase got bumped off the bottom to make more time to go to these new events. Every comment in the next few years is just speculation, even mine. We have to wait for the facts and see how the younger kids make out. They are the only ones this will really win here. The my team is better than your team crap is just boring. With the way kids are jumping from team to team the focus is less on the team and more on the player.

Lets talk about those chair tents parents are sitting in during games now. Are the silly or smart?

Anonymous said...

12:32
you would be incorrect. first of all, it's not 00 anymore. so you have zero clue. the 19/18 team is 00/99 age group.

And, PF as well as others are loaded with kids within and outside the club as well who are very good. Btw PF 00, 01 and 02's made championship league in ECNL. So, already starting with good bones. And the 99's returning are high level, too. They should be just fine.


Anonymous said...

also, they have a pre academy team that they will be pulling from as well also which has very good players on it.

so, if many didn't want any part of it, why wasn't there a mass exodus? There wasn't. The higher level kids all stayed.

Anonymous said...

All of that aside, i agree, this isn't a DA vs. ECNL argument. It's a wait and see how they both fare. There are a lot of kids that play soccer anymore and a lot of $$ in it. I expect there are enough of both to keep all the leagues relevant.

The focus should be on correcting the ref situation in all the leagues, including boys and girls. there should be an age range for championship games (not too old and not too young). They need to be able to run with the play and yet have the experience to know the calls, too. There are enough other games for those outside of those ranges. It's a safety issue too. If the ref can't keep up or is too young, the games tend to get out of control and that is when kids get hurt. The #1 concern should always be the safety of the players.

Anonymous said...

Can't word it that way. The league will have an age discrimination lawsuit against them quicker than you can say "hand ball."

They can however require a fitness test like the pros do.

The ref problem is all of the crazy soccer moms/dads yelling at the ref all game long. This behavior is pushing all of the young inexperienced refs out of the water and pool size is smaller and only getting older.

Our assigner does a great job of only putting experienced crews on higher level games but the U8 psycho parents think every game is the world cup and we can't retain new refs to feed the system.

Anonymous said...

Didnt look like a U8 game that the egregious non call was made in

We all pay good money and deserve better - sorry

Shame on the tournament coordinators. There needs to be more of a presence to oversee matches at the highest level in these events.

Referees work for the administrators - and need to be held to a higher standard, no matter the age.

I am not talking about an offsides call/non call that is on/off by a whisker. But the noncall as referenced above. The non use of yellow/red cards (are they even trained on what they should be used for? Not so sure). etc, etc.

Anonymous said...

11:38 ok. 00/99. Whatever the label, they had to pull younger kids as well as mediocre (at best) outsiders. And, I know very good players in multiple age groups who jumped ship. All just tired of the constant changes, politics & being fed BS.

As for the refereeing, that's a great idea... fitness tests. Too many times we've seen overweight tired old refs who believe it's their job to stay within the circle. As mentioned above, no way is it fair to have a young, clearly inexperienced ref for a regional semifinal game. With female youth soccer basically being a full contact sport at this point, they should also make some rule changes... at the very least, not allowing a player to foul as often as she wants, with no repercussions. These referees too often pull players aside for "a talk" or warning. They're not 7 years old, learning the rules. They know exactly what they're doing. Blatant intentional foul? Make her sit the bench for 5 minutes, watching her team play a man down. Watch the number of concussions drop drastically. These girls laugh at yellow cards.

7:02 and PAC coach. You can update that roster all you want, it isn't going to increase the talent level or speed of the players on your current DA teams. The fact that your 01 classics team was crushed by the 02's in a tourney last weekend, is just a slight indication of the issues that you are facing. Please don't give us some injury excuse or how great the 02 team is, the bottom line is its going to be a tough year or two for your girls. Your club will be walking a razors edge between convincing parents of the viability of Classics DA and or becoming the FC Bucks of the DA.

A no-call on the keeper getting plastered and then the other team scoring happened in the USYS National Championships last year. Check out this video starting at 43:15: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BmvPbQbXCI&t=5071s

You would think at high-level events, the organizers, ENCL or USYS, would attempt to have competent officials, but they don't.

agreed the language would be different, but the outcome the same.
refs are assigned field/games. an age discrimination claim would come if they had no opportunities for games. there are plenty of other matches. the prongs for age discrimination are clear. And as long as you have the same work opportunities and the same pay (other matches not championship ones), it's good. And, since there are many other matches to ref at the same rate, they would.

And these are not employees. The are independent contractors, generally. Treated differently under the law.

once again. you are incorrect. you probably thought they (PF) would not go just GDA, either. Who does that when the $$ maker is in the ECNL, right? Well, they were first in the ECNL when others didn't believe, either.

PAC's leadership at the top is very good, unfortunately there's a huge drop off after that and PAC doesn't have the PF or PDA name to carry them through.

The irony of 1:42 statement is that there are as many 01s as 02s on the gda team for the fall.
Definitely disgruntled
Seems like they didn't put any inportance on that game at the tournament.
They had a 0-0 tie their next game.

Goodness people!!! Give the girls a chance...the gda didn't even begin yet!!

Acknowledging you have a problem is the first sign that you are on the road to recovery. Good luck and get some ointment for that PAC thing. :)

@5:53 0-0 last game was actually not played so it was recorded as so.

Not many would argue the 02's had a very good team but the 01's have a handful of strong players too. Results are going to depend on what they do with the best 01's. If they keep them U16/17 that will be a competitive team despite what some say on here. If they put the best 01's up at U19 then it will obviously hurt the U16/17's. Most I'm sure are hoping they focus on making the U16/17's competitive.

Wait what? NOT played but ended as 0-0 and recorded as such?

11:26 Game was not played because Rage had wrapped up the tournament by winning the previous game. Unfortunately do to the scheduling times, Rage would have had to play the next game with less than an hour's rest. Classic officials realized there could be a potential for injury and in a classy move by them, called it a tie.

11:35 Integrity of the game my friend. Tournaments use results to determine flights - while this might not be an issue for the two teams it is a "FAKE" result. One should have forfeited or the result should not have been recorded.
Either way the tournament should have done better with their scheduling.

You can spin it as being nice and that's okay. But posting a FAKE result speaks to the integrity of the game no other way to look at posting a FAKE result.

On to some results. SUSA who won the NYCSL NPL finally gave up their 1st goal in NPL action that's 9 league games and 4 Final games.

The 2017 NPL Final
South Shore Select U16 AP
vs
SUSA G01 NPL

Other 2017 National Champions (note ECNL and NPL are league titles and are not open events to crown a true national champion, National Cup is the premier US Club National Title)

FC Dallas ECNL U16 (TX) - ECNL National Finals Champion
BAC Blitz (VA) - USYS 2017 National Presidents Cup Champion

How did Massapequa and Princeton get into a national at U16?

ALSO RANS to SUSA in NPL play

I am sure STA would have loved to go (they tried to get in via Mid Atlantic but lost out - on a tough tiebreak)

Did this tournament just allow Massapequa and Princeton in because they asked?

Some shady dealing going on along with what Stallions did at U17

Anonymous said...

Shady? Why? Princeton won us club soccer New Jersey cup and qualified for national cup. Good or bad event everybody can judge that but their partecipation is legit . " because they asked" lol what a stupid statement

Anonymous said...

7:38 Integrity of the Game? So if a player sustains an injury while playing a meaningless game and loses their junior season, its okay because the integrity of the game was salvaged? I do agree the scheduling was the real issue, but least at least give PAC credit for doing the correct thing.
Sorry if my post is a little dramatic, but whenever I hear integrity being applied to anything involving club soccer, I have either laugh or cringe.

if ECNL can't participate in the posting you recorded, it's not a TRUE national champion either as not all leagues are participating. #dipstick

Anonymous said...

Also ECNL teams are forbidden from participating in any other event that has a national championship title other than ECNL.

But, we have shown already that the other leagues have the opportunity of trying to get a national title other multiple ways. You can get in by winning regionals, being a wildcard and/or winning your state cup and/or finalist. Several bites at the same apple. Plus the multiple other ways, President's cup, US Club, Turkey Hill, etc.

It seemed like you tried to diminish the ECNL event by saying it's a league championship. USYS is the same; except multiple ways to get in.

NPL can participate in the USYS events so those teams have multiple ways as well.

I'm not trying to wave an ECNL flag as it being the end all be all or trying to minimize the USYS national championship(s) at all, but don't diminish the accomplishments by saying ECNL it's just a league championship. It's a top tier league national championship, too.

whoops forgot, good luck to all those Region 1 teams participating.

This should've been a forfeit 3-0
BS on integrity and being "nice"
Thanks PAC coach

I think you forgot that State Cup champs attend nationals. This would explain Massapequa and Princeton.

Not sure why so sensitive over 1 single game being recorded as 0-0 when. Other teams would have agreed to it. If you step back and look at the big picture 1 game over the course of a season does not move the dial. So we agree that the right thing was done for the safety of the players.

Then why schedule a 4 game bracket tournament with advanced notice?
If you're concerned about injury....

1:21 Stop cluttering up this blog with common sense post and leave room for irrational thoughts.

9:02 How do we know it's only one result? Just proves that they would report FAKE scores.

Anonymous said...

There are some people here in serious need of meds or just a reality check. Starting with 7:38.

Anonymous said...

This just in. It turns out the Russians convinced PAC to report the score as 0-0 and were caught sneaking into 7:38's home and stealing all his meds. I am not a fan of PAC, but in this case they absolutely did the right thing.
3:26 I am hoping your post was not a serious post (reporting fake scores). Don't you think if they were going to report fake scores, they would post ones that would help their cause? The tournament win gives Rage the first place ranking in PAE, it would make Classics the worst cheaters since Nixon.

None of the PF starters left PF. You guys are delusional. The younger kids they put up are simply in a holding development pattern because there were openings for roster spots 20-22 on the 99/00 team. They will likely be contributors on the 02/03 team the following year. Yes most seniors aren't going to leave their existing team and give up high school for one year of DA. Especially to jump onto a team with an well developed top 15 or so. That is not an indictment of the GDA. Simply a growing pain. The developmental opportunity was thought to be better than the 01/02 Preacademy team for those on the bubble for 01/02 academy. Credit PF for creative thinking. To add emphasis one of the 99/98 PF ecnl kids went to PAC because she would have struggled to see the field on PF. At PAC she can be in the starting 11.

No one cares about PF . If your kid is that good they would be at PDA !

Anonymous said...

4:11 Did you read that directly from Tino's email he sent you or do take all of his dictation for PF?

Anonymous said...

Lol
Apparently people do care about it since they are posting misleading and inaccurate information about the PF GDA. Probably doing this to make themselves feel better about their own children's (or more likely their) soccer club choices. Soon it will be clear how bad PAC is compared to PF. PDA will not be dominant in the GDA if they were even so in the ECNL. Anyway most at PF are as least an hour or more to PDA. Different market.

This was my first experience with the NPL finals and I could not be more disappointed. How they arranged brackets so teams would win with such large goal differences was nuts. Next you have refs that let players re-enter the game when it is clearly against the rules. This would never happen in ECNL.
