Does PDA play soccer anymore at U13?

Anonymous said...

8:23 ...according to got soccer it was the spirit tournament last year 3-1 holmdel/njx over Medford/real.

Anonymous said...

Hey try someone in a blue jersey.

Anonymous said...

Got it, that was REAL, not Medford. You said you beat Real Galaxy (as Medford too). That insinuates you beat them when they were Medford and then again as Real.

Anonymous said...

Just curious, when did Holmdel/NJX ever beat STA Red in a real outdoor soccer game? Not a futsal game, a real SOCCER game.

Like the question does PDA play soccer at u13 or are they not into it

NJX NJX NJX!!!

Someone's catching feelings because they can't play futsol...don't worry Copa and PDA felt the same way but they got over it too

Anonymous said...

Futsol is like playing slow pitch softball. Uneventful.

On a different topic where is the genius that was stating that lots of girls were going to leave and be at many tryouts ( all girls will be at PDA tryouts and blah blah blah)

Force / Americans/sta/NJSA players they did for different reasons.

Actually I saw some match fit and PDA girls trying out somewhere else.

Some teams kept together and nobody went to any tryouts. That is something important in youth development

What's with the random PDA questions about if they play soccer. Who cares if we aren't paying but it's pretty common knowledge pre-ECNL does not post standings, but splash plays there. Madrid win the NE Girls NPL and is going to nationals. Hornets are the stepchild without a league but I think they play a few JAGS games.

Would the two idiots with the personal battle over a meaningless game from last season please take it elsewhere. Nobody else cares. Live in your own little fantasy land until you are the current champion of state, region, division and league. Until then try to offer something constructive or worth debate.

Very funny, says the idiot parent from PDA who's kid probably rides the pine.

Anonymous said...

For all the kook aid drinkers who think a full ride is coming, if you haven't already heard from the top colleges, your daughter is not a phenom. Google 8th grader commits to college soccer and read some reality. The no contact rules don't matter if your daughter is that good. The best spots for girls in this age group are already penciled in where talks have already taken place. Better get the academics up to snuff.

801 - I'm not from PDA and as a matter of fact also posted just after you suggesting they get real as well. People are way too hung up on the perceived importance of this GAME their daughters are playing. It is not life changing. It is not a career. It is not even a path to a career. Maybe some get tuition help, but seriously, if you have the funds to waste on some of these extreme financial commitments then why are you worried about tuition? If you only get offers from certain schools, are you going to tell your daughter to pick a career that is taught there? You are better off passing on that and going to community college to pursue their real passion.
Life choices should not revolve around a game. This game might help open a door at an admissions office with a coach's help, but it would be much better to make the life choice and let the game help rather than the other way around. If you genuinely have financial need, the academic scholarships and grant programs will come through. Soccer is not the path to success - it is a game that can possibly provide an opportunity to help get in to the most preferred choice of college and career.
All these people fighting over who won what and who is the best forget that it's not really important in the long run. Keep it in perspective. Enjoy the competition and the game - it will be over very soon.

If she has the grades and some soccer skill everything will work out. Grades mean everything. We should all worry about that rather then focusing on what club is the best. The end.

"DOC's=college contacts" ask your DOC for a list of past U13 girls in which he/she got scholarships for & amounts... you will be shocked how empty & little $$ the list is. Most of the U13 girls they trained i mean "developed" were probably not even on the team at u17

face it you got suckered on the "sales pitch"; don't worry you were not the 1st. next time you go to practice with your kid look to the parents to the left & right to see others

In a nutshell

delusion is a belief held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary

Delusions typically occur in the context of neurological or mental illness, although they are not tied to any particular disease and have been found to occur in the context of many pathological states (both physical and mental). However, they are of particular diagnostic importance in psychotic disorders including schizophrenia, paraphrenia, manic episodes of bipolar disorder, and psychotic depression

Anonymous said...

It would be good if something useful came out if this site once in awhile. Like treatment and recovery suggestions for tendon or Achilles issues that seem to be on the rise. Maybe some debate over the merits of having downtime or alternate sports. How about rotation of trainers or coaches so nobody is too comfortable or becomes favorites who play when they no longer perform. Are there benefits to scrimmages or are they just a way to get injured. Should these girls play for high school teams - what if they are age appropriate for U14 - should they play both?

Anonymous said...

Should they have orange slices at half time. Should they do their homework before or after soccer practice. Should they be able to date the night before games. Should
they have their own I-pads. Should
they have more than 5 games in any weekend. Should their parents just shut up after the game and let them decompress before they start complaining about playing time, the coach and who should be benched.

Anonymous said...

no, before, HELL NO, no(hate apple products),
only if at least three of them involve a playing board and dice, parents should just shut up all the time.
Hope this helps.

Only one question I can answer and that is the last one. I think U14 players who are in the ninth grade and play at a high level should not play hs soccer their freshman year. Too much going on with the club team in the fall and trying to manage a very important soccer year with a hs season is too much. Just my opinion.

winning too much means the teams you are playing against are weaker.

People, you are all missing the point about Academy teams. Do you realy honestly think the PDA/MFA/NJSA/COPA/Wildcats/NJ Stallions DOC's/coaches care about wins in EDP/NPL at U12-U13? It is all about team/player development through competition. All of these Academies are building towards U15-U18 were the games and college showcases mean a lot more for these teams and players! It has been proven over the years that these players get placed into college for soccer but also based on club reputation as well and the DOC's relationship with all of these college coaches and connections. Do you think a college coach is going to talk to Mom/Dad coach or a DOC of a club about players which already has a good reputation for sending players to play in college? Does Brick, Freehold, NJX, GFA, have any older teams that are established and proven? Wake up people as you are very ignorant or blind/jealous and just don't understand....Really, winning at U13 is that important? You will all see what happens to the town teams in the next year or two. They will not exists or will be diluted of player talent as most will leave for the Academy teams that are serious about playing in college. If you are happy about Suzy/Tom winning games now, great but the real competition and preparing for the next level starts at U15. Town teams need wins now and GS points to elevate their status/ranking and try to place in high level tournaments because that's all they can sell to their parents right now! You can bash the Academies all you want but these are the players that colLege coaches will be looking at in a few years! Again, a lot of it has to do with reputation of the club and these DOC's which most of these college coaches know and talk to on a regular basis about players! Nobody is talking to the likes of Brick, GFA, TR, NJX, Freehold, as they are not proven clubs at the older age groups! If you want to look for yourself, checkout each of the town teams I named and go to the club website...You all need to educate yourself and worry about your own child and do what is best for them moving forward. This is why PDA/MFA are ECNL teams and Copa/NJ Stallions/Wildcats/SJEB/NJ Rush are EDL and members of the National Premiere League....You don't get this recognition/status unless you have quality/proven teams/club in the U14-18 age groups. Bottom line!

Anonymous said...

Some sense finally!! Tournaments are too long but the needed for progression because not eveyobe wants to play at PDA r MF. Exposure does work. Colleges reaching out to 13 year old girls is rediculous so much will change by 18. Trainers should vary from time to time to avoid favoritism. Parents do need to chill after games andgive girls time to decompress. Therapy whether preventive or recovery is needed especially ifour girls play one sport. Rest and nutrition is vital because soccer demands a whole lot of energy.

OMG are you kidding. Soccer or Sports isn't a career path.....do you realize that sports and in particular the NCAA is a multi-billion dollar business.....not a career choice....really as we go into the World Cup....all those players and all those teams...How about our women's National Team....not a career choice for them????? Granted women still don't get paid as much as men do and especially in Soccer; however, a player just signed an $84 million deal......looks at all the baseball, football, basketball players making millions in endorsements and doing what they love. Isn't that part of life....isn't that the best part of life....doing something that you love and getting paid for it....and when it comes to sports....getting paid handsomely for it. Bill Bradley was one of the best basketball players Princeton ever had....he made millions to fund his political career....and he was smart....smart enough to get in and gradeuate Princeton...not just attend. Playing sports professionally only last a finite period of years....after that with an education you can do whatever you want; but your body can only perform at these levels for so long....why not support your daughter or son to do what they are passionate about.....if they are truly talented to make it to the next level. Oh and by the way...statistically speaking most female soccer players are very strong academically and are considered scholar athletes...so please don't fall back on the line....they're only playing soccer because they can't do anything else. We should be telling our daughters they can achieve whatever they want and if it's sports....there are several career paths that playing any sport can lead....your myoptic opinion is staggering to think you feel this way about travel soccer....enjoy watching her play because with your attitidue it will be over sooner than you think.

Dude, I didn't drink the Kool-Aide and I'm not specifically talking about any teams or clubs.....my reference is at the college and pro levels; but any player in any sport if they want to play collegiate and pro levels needs to know what paths to pursue to get them there.

Put down the bong, get off your soap box and read the post again. Soccer specifically for women specifically is not a career path. Some amazing few play for a few years on the national team, but this third failing attempt at a women's league cannot support any reasonable salaries. Do not compare it to the mega sports on TV for men.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the compliment on the post....glad to know I'm not the only feminist fighting for our daughter's rights to be whatever they want to me.....LOL

Soccer academy, coach at the college level...a lot of former players on college teams are AC's and eventually can make very good money....again maybe not as much as men make make I know some head women soccer coaches making a few hundred thousand a year...not bad....there's sports marketing....broadcasting....OMG...the list goes on.....at least you and I are on the same level!

In this day and age there's more to earning a living than corporate america or being a doctor or lawyer.....afterall look at zuckerberg...you think his parents told him that it was a stupid idea to develop a communication system to talk between colleges??????

I am the poster you call a chauvinist. I say you are giving the typical over emotional unrealistic view. Yes for a very very select few there may be an opportunity to make a living or earn a second income in soccer and good for them. The reality of numbers say out if any particular age, the vast and overwhelming majority will not. How many spots are available and how long does the average person retain those spots. Not impossible, but reality should temper decisions. There's a fine line between dreams and fantasies.

I will absolutely support and encourage my daughters to push the limit and break barriers and if one of them was the 8th grader already committed to college then I would still hold the same belief. That college and education provides the career - the soccer only provides the opportunity.
If one of them wants to run an academy, the business degree and MBA would be more important in the long run because the business needs to be run - the trainers can be hired. Management and investment must be learned.
If my youngest daughter came to me and said she wants to run Apple someday I would do the same thing. Use the soccer as an opportunity to get an edge on the application to the best school we can find to foster that dream wether there's scholarship potential or not. I will never let the soccer dictate what education and resulting career is chosen.

You are completely right. While it's important to teach our kids to dream and dream big, we also have to advise them of the actual odds of things happening. For you to be called a chauvinist is silly because the same thing hold true for boys soccer. The same thing for rocket scientist, and yes the same thing for being the next Mark Zuckerberg.

Of course things like that happen, the question is how often? While you pie in the sky parents are at it, don't forget to tell your kids to start playing the lottery the minute they turn 18, maybe they'll grow up to be the next Warren Buffett. What's that? He EARNED his money? Sorry, bad analogy...

Believe what you want; but experience has taught me opportunity knocks very softly in life....if you're not listening, or focused or in situations to seize the moment it will pass you by.....that goes for our children, us....everyone. I guess by the sound of some of the parents on this blog...it all comes down to: is the glass half full or half empty. Yes, we should be honest with our kids and set realistic expectations for each of them....individually; but to think that this generation of kids can't accomplish so much more than we have is sad to hear. I think they are smarter on so many levels now then we were at there age.....notwithstanding technology. I for one will never pigeon hole my daughter...I will temper her expectations to be in line with what she is capable of but at u13...for me....the world is her oyster.....unlimited possibilities and frankly I believe that's what helps kids feel like they can achieve anything....we should be the wind beneath their wings.......

8:07 don't née to know what team your daughter is on but can you give me a little bit of your philosophy on girls soccer today. Do you like the direction it's going? What are Differences between high level town team and the big academies? Where do you rate your daughter on her team? Do you think being on a PDA team alone will get her a scholarship? Not being critical just curious.

Anonymous said...

It will be interesting next Fall as the gap between the top 6 NJ has closed where teams 7-15 on any given day can not only compete but win once in a while vs them which is exciting. TRIC, Copa, Real are getting better while some have started to go backwards & will need to pick up players to stop the slide like Freehold & NJ Crush. If Force & Americans are done then the top 6 will look alit different. Wildcats & NJX I still think are a cut below & more like a top 15 team but not top 10 & with NJX players leaving maybe Wildcats can leap frog NJX.
Predictions for next season:
Top 5
PDA Splash
SJEB
Brick
STA
Copa
5-10
TRIC
NJ Crush
GFA
Real
Freehold
11-15
PDA Hornets
Stronghold
PDA Madrid
Wildcats
NJX

Just my predictions with no malice towards any team just fun to project.

I think when players are very good they will rise to the top on any team they are on....but not every player wants to pursue collegegiate level sports....and that's okay. My philosphy is if you strenthen each player individually then, by default, you should have a strong team....however, I'm not a coach and a lot of coaches in soccer, regardless of whether it's an academy or town team don't see it that way. Personally, speaking I would "tweak" some things that I have seen but it can never be just one person speaking up and I have found a lot of parents are not as outspoken as they pretend to be and leave the status quo alone. I think you have to be the spokesperson for your child...in school, in sports, in life and I don't think that being on an academy team, alone, will get any player a scholorship. It makes it easier to get the attention of certain coaches because their radar and their scouts are set on the academy type team; but there are other ways to get college coaches' attention. A player could be a great town team player; but maybe their parents cannot afford the travel expense that goes with being on an academy team. Life is like driving..sometimes you have go around the obstacles, through them, above them, etc. to get where you want to be. I have also seen some players on academy teams that I'm not impressed with...so are they there to make up a deficit in the player's abilities....maybe the coach sees potential down the road....who knows. I don't know. I think the key to any player being on any coaches radar is academic excellence and strong athletic abilities. Coaches today are less inclined to accept a player who is borderline in their academics....because they want the bench strength and they want to build on that....not have to worry about negotiating with their teachers and professors to keep a player on their bench. So I don't think being on an academy team along gets anyone a scholarship...it gets you noticed at certain tournaments that you may not be currently going to; but there are other ways to achieve your goals.

There is more than one way, one source to obtain results and I have found that most times you have to have all the strategies going at the same time to achieve what we want in life.....retirement savings, funding college expenses.....

At the end of the day it's up to our daughter's/players to determine how committed they are to playing soccer and if they have what it takes to take them to the next level. Each sport is different....college football and the scholarship money is very different than bball or soccer. I tell me daughter all the time: strive to be the best academically then when the time comes you can be in a position of strength with desired results vs. haphazard results...I think kids, ultimately, end up where they are meant to be...athletics is the cherry on top of the cheescake so to speak. You need the strong academics because if there's an injury you need a fallback in life..academics should be first...always....with athletics with a real strong 2nd...then our daughters are in a much better position to determin their future.

What you are missing is that all the players that left teams that broke up will find other teams and make them better. As well as teams themselves developing and getting better.The top 20 teams in NJ on GS are there because they can compete against each other.Some win more then others but ALL are developing.Brick will be the team that benifits the most out of this becacause they picked up 4 or 5 players from Force. So where will all these players wind up? 30 players need to find a place to play.Most of the top 20 teams were just a couple players away of being a top 5 team.

Anonymous said...



Take PDA Splash out of the equation as they move to ECNL.

What out for Brick to potentially move to the top spot with the addition of some very strong players from NJ Force. SJEB always a top team. STA and Crush fall off and perhaps out of top 15. COPA has been consistent but don't really know any info on team for next year. NJX and COPA both had good spring seasons, but no one really know what they will look like in fall. TRIC is consistent but never gets over the hump, very good team, may have cut a few to add a few players as well. Also don't know much about Freehold, except they may have taken a few players that left to go to NJ Force and are no back, they have been rumored to have a lot of players at tryouts, but you never know. PDA Hornets/PDA Madrid and Wildcats all fall into average at best, probably will fall off next season.

I agree. Splash rigged NJ Cup to make sure all "top" teams lost(except STA because they had to beat at least one top team) to weaker opponents so they could skate to the finals and claim that they don't duck NJ teams. Then they barely beat a team that was lucky to field 11 players. You and I know better. They should have given all those points to a real team that plays real competition.(;

What really amazes me is how you call out someone who's abusing brick coach, and then turn around in the same breath and bash another coach?

But that's ok. - thanks brick parent/friend of coach

Anonymous said...

It's simple really, I have known both for quite some time, and I know how both speak. So, what you call bashing/calling out, is in reality just pointing out facts. And, I know it's ok, you just continue being oblivious and think you know what you're talking about. Some of us actually do.

as far as anyone commenting on a normal size team (Not 22!) about playing time, this isn't recreation. If you have an issue with playing time, maybe your little darling simply isn't as good as you think she is. And maybe, just maybe...it is time to move on (and down).

Anonymous said...

Hey 3:24

She gets plenty of playing time.

But a lot less than the playing time you do with yourself.

Anonymous said...

OUCH! That's a mature response. LMAO. I guess the original poster might be right.

That is not the point being raised on playing time. What happens in many instances is that when teams have very good players. Lets use a team of 18, so the top 7 players on the team will play more than 80%+ of the time. players in the 8 - 14 range(ranked by the coach) will get their fair share of playing time. Now the 15-18 ranked players will get minimal playing time. They are very good players as well just not getting the playing time. so the question is raised do I want to stay and be part of the team and have very good training sessions but limited playing time in games? Or do I move to another team where I would be in the top 7 -8 players and get the bulk load of game experience. That was the point. No one said it was rec soccer but good players will not be happy with limited playing time, I don't care what team you play for, that is a fact.

5:00 You need to move on if your daughter is good enough. However, I suspect that the problem is that if the parent is starting their stop watch every time their daughter steps on the field there is a problem.

Playtime is valuable,.

Again, not my daughter. Just bringing up the potential issues that could arise if you have a team of 18+ quality players.

Anonymous said...

If not your daughter why do you care? 18 vs 22 on a soccer squad.

45 vs 60 on a football squad.

12 vs 15 on a basketball squad.

2 or 3 in a romantic relationship.

Is not a new issue. Each player and their parents will have to evaluate it for themselves.

Anonymous said...

Any one who wants to be part of a 22 person roster has to accept that
there will be bench time.

Any parent who wants their kid to be part of 22 person roster has to accept there will be more time to watch their kid watch.

Is very simple . You haven't discovered fire or the wheel.

You are simply looking for someone to help you deal with the problem of your daughter's lack of playing time.

Hey -at least you are not alone. There are at least 1 to 7 other families thinking the same.

Exactly! Just the fact of bringing up playing time at all points to the fact that the player in question is in all probability not good enough for that particular team. It happens. Teams wouldn't seek new players if they were strong in every area. Someone (or more than one) is always the weak link.

All good points, but all some of you are ignorant. Just brought up a point for discussion or debate. Not to attack anyone.

You obviously have no other agenda but to be trolls. My guess would be that you are the Jack arse that is continually posting COPA.

Hey 5:52

We have tried to be supportive of your wish for info and input.

But none of this is new. PERIOD.

Man up. Move your kid if you are not happy.

No one wants to ride the bench at this age. But guess what, if you put yourself or kid in that position it could happen.

Playing time goes to those who earn and fight for it.

You obviously didn't play high school or college sports. If you had you wouldn't even be posing this question.

So who is the Jack A$$.

18-20 quality players on one team? Are you kidding? This is girls' soccer. There aren't 18-20 good players in the entire state.

Anonymous said...

The problem is that there are too many teams. So many promises of top competition and pseudo academies that convince the 8-14 to move. You wind up with a bunch of mediocre teams when compared to other areas. If the best girls only had a couple choices, the teams would be much better because the best would all be together. That is why NJ is not competing like they used to when they go beyond the state line - they keep diluting their talent.

ITS not about Jersey competing against other states by assembling some pseudo dream team around your daughter so as to stroke your ego.

Its about developing as many young girls as possible and want to be able to play.

Stop with your Jersey is diluted and needs fewer but dtronger teams.

What do people think of a 20 player roster with 2 goalies? And each week, 2 players rotate off.

Example - 20 games in a season. Every player would play 18 and sit 2. Quality play time, fair, and 2 weekends off to rest and spend with family.

As long as the rotation is fair and every pair sits a game (1 in 10 games) I think this is a good way to split time in a large team.

Anonymous said...

Odp is joke ...u13 ...Olympics...just another marketing scheme. I am sure it is beneficial at an older age group. At least ECNL scheme provides more bang for the buck. ODP is thebpreium drink for the label chasers. If those girls get hurt their teams get screwed so much for teamwork. More like me myself and my daughter attitude. Individualism at its best.

Anonymous said...

Most of ODP are "who ya knows". Wouldn't last on the best teams, but happened to know the right person. ODP player on our team can't make a decent pass if the game depended on it. Tries to dribble through three girls still. More turnovers than a French pastry shop. Selfish and not a team player - not what the national team would ever want. But she's ODP so we should all bow down to her greatness. For the record we did not tryout for ODP, so we are not just bitter. Just sick of watching senseless turnovers and selfish play costing the team.

Curious as to why NJ does an upper and lower team? The lower team is not very good. Didn't score a goal today. Then again when you have 4 or 5 players from the PDA "C" team it just goes too show you that all the ODP evaluators from PDA push their own kids to build up their program. It's sad that the truly best kids don't make these teams.

We do not know anybody and my daughter made the team. Just another way to get id, but like all the other ways to get id thing will change by u15-18;many who made now will not be around later.
