Does anyone know what are the costs for the PDA & MF ECNL teams? Can they play HS ball? Tks

Anonymous said...

How often does a true impact player- potentially national quality id2 etc- "come out of nowhere"?

Anonymous said...

To the parents displaced they come out of nowhere. There are a lot of NPL players and a few girls from other teams that are better than PDA current players. They may not be ready for travel and time commitment, but may be very ready when they know it's a better spot to be.

Anonymous said...

every parent thinks they Have id2 quality patent but the fact of the Mattter is that there are not many "game changers"..

Most good quality players are interchangeable. The type of player the coach desires will depend on the system the coach is playing.


When a game changer comes along , whether it's a defender or midfielder or striker, most parents see the difference on the field in that position.


So no , not many game changers will come along, despite parents wishful thinking. The parts will be interchangeable., and therefore not so easy to make an ECNL team as you may think. Unless of course you are truly a game changer.

You should have gotten their earlier!

PDA has ECNL players playing on their High School Teams. Not sure about Match Fit. What parents may want to think about is, "Does playing in highly physical, less skilled games a smart place for my child to play. If they are in the starting 11 for either MF or PDA, so a total of 22 for any age group. College coaches really ignore High School soccer, at least that is what they say (the college coaches)

Costs, not sure but have heard MF is between $10K to $12K per year. Never have heard what PDA but I'm sure in the same range.

If your daughter is good enough to be in the first 11 for one of these teams, and she would like to be considered as a potential recruit for a top D1 school then go for it. But if she falls outside of that range, then you will have to decide if it is worth the investment. Of course this is just one person's opinion.

In the end, just do your homework. Go watch a couple of games and training sessions to see the quality of each. How players are treated, demeanor of coach and trainers, at games and training. You will see how much the starting 11 play and how often the end of the bench gets to show their ability. Don't just go to tryouts and make the 25 - 32 player roster, not knowing where she may fit in that pool of players. Could be a very risky proposition, not to mention the potential blow to you daughters confidence if she is getting limited playing time and is not often on game day rosters.

Good luck

833 are you kidding? look at MF, acquired many new players this year; totally different results thus far as compared to last year. Many kids will be displaced over the next 2 yrs and if it goes free as the boys side is now, many more will be displaced. I know of at least 25 girls who could make these teams if they tried out. Watch out they will doing so in the next 2 yrs. I think many would agree.

Anonymous said...

Girls side will never be free. The boys side is now free because the boys academy system takes it direction from US soccer where ECNL is a private organization and was not formed by US soccer. The girls teams at the boys academy programs as well as the boys 2nd and 3rd teams fund the top free boys teams.

Anonymous said...



Neither PDA nor MF will ever be free?

On the boys side the only real academy in NJ is Red Bull, They cover the costs for the players in the academy. Will not happen on the girls side, who would fund it. What a ridiculous statement. Both are Pay to play and will remain that way.

Anonymous said...

Wrong. MF has a free boys team.

Anonymous said...

STA had 5 kids on the bench with injuries.

Anonymous said...


MF lost both 16 year old and 18 year old academy teams. So maybe they are not charging them to play, but they don't compete in the academy league any more! So no longer an academy.

Oh yeah...there are no academies on the girls side!!

Anonymous said...

that stinks, did they go back to MOSA?

imagine paying since U9 then just when it counts no team.. will they still get their scholarships?

Cost for MF is $2800

+ travel, that sounds more correct than $10K to $12K per year.

Is that 2800 total or is winter extra and tournaments extra and blah blah extra . . ?
If that's total for fall winter and spring it's not bad for top 11 or even 14. Even at an extra 100 to cover the short timer.

Anonymous said...

Does not cover Winter training & you will get a bill after every tournament for the coaches exspenses which is why if you are rostered to everything it's get up there in cost. PDA is much less $2,600 & no extra hidden costs.

Anonymous said...

i dont know if I would say PDA is much less, but there are surely outside training costs that are not included. M.O'N. even says that you can not be elite by just going to three practices a week with your team, in order to BE ELITE you must do some kind of outside training and there are tons of outside PDA training that are recommended, especially if you want to BE ELITE (get it?)

Anonymous said...

Yes there are extra but you don't get the extra bills after each tournament for coaches travel, hotel, food car rental etc as that is what your tuition covers. Number 1 girls Club in the country for years now & cheaper then MF they have nerve.

what jumps out is that they have the biggest goal differential in the region and most goals scored a against them.

It is not like these are 1 goal games that they are losing.

I guess the girls and players have finally gotten old enough to counter Billy Ball.

Maybe they are missing their keeper or key defensive players or the ball has bounced not their way? You aren't at these games & yes this is more goals then they are used to giving up especially against World Class but these are top teams too. World Class just won Stars tournament & Bucks are always very good.

Anonymous said...

Penn Fusion might be the top team as well. MF hasn't played these teams yet do keys hold off & see how they do before bragging.

Anonymous said...

Those results do not come from missing one girl on a team of all stars. That is a system failure. Possession not being maintained, not executing on scoring opportunities, not pressuring or forcing turnovers . . . System failure.

Anonymous said...

Take anyone's keeper away & see how well you do if that is the case @ PDA.

Anonymous said...

Cannot be just a goalie issue. The defense is a major factor as well as simply keeping the ball. Besides, there must be a very good backup - even if it was the Hornets goalie. It's PDA. They "develop" the best.

Anonymous said...

win/lose by 1-2 goals you are in the right bracket..if more move up or down. Is it time to replace pda with one of those other top nj teams in ecnl who will provide a better challenge and help development for the other clubs?

Anonymous said...

I must assume that is said tongue in cheek because we all know that despite their recent issues, Splash is undoubtedly ECNL level team. It is ironic and a little amusing to see them eat crow when they railed so hard about MF not being at that level based on lopsided losses. Hopefully this is a dose of reality to the team and grounds them a little. Refusing to shake hands and leaving second place trophies as garbage is way too arrogant. A wake up call was probably due.

Anonymous said...

The shifting of the PDA landscape is very interesting to me. No one can dispute that PDA is a top club and will always have formidable teams but now you will see a competitive shift at each age group. I believe that the ecnl teams at each age group will have to stand on there own merit and coaching schemes . The coach of a particular age group will matter in the outcome of best ECNL team in NJ. You can't just load up on talented kids and expect to win the region. The coach of the splash is a coach that has always had his pick of the best kids in the area but I believe that parents now have his number both as a leader of a coaching system and as the leader of a team. And some are justing opting for a different alternative. This is not on The kids of this team. This sits solely on the shoulders of the coach of the splash.

He built the system in which they have decided to play in.

It's funny, "Know Everything Guy" is finding excuses - for PDA. Check other NJ teams how they played the teams you just lost and compare your results.

How many players left Splash this year?

Anonymous said...

8:!9.

You hit the nail right on the head.

Splash will win their share of games but they will not dominate any team in their ECNL region. Talent is pretty nicely spread out now as a lot of talent is coming into the ECNL.

The Coach and the system will make the biggest difference in the Success of the team.

This is not on the girls! It's on the coach.

The coaches older teams struggle on the national Level.

Because talent is catching up quickly on the younger teams, PDA may struggle at the regionally level.






Anonymous said...

You're all wrong. He is the best trainer and knows all the best talent. Just ask him.

Anonymous said...

ECNL is a top league for top talents for those who want to go in that direction. Not saying it its good or bad, that's not the point of this post. I think a few things have finally caught up with PDA Splash. Could lack of consistent play not have the girls in game shape(not physically, but the mental part of the beautiful game). Everyone keeps talking about how they "duck" competition. Yes, they won eclipse (in early August), a top tourney in the country bar none. I think they skipped Stars, they skipped Spirit. You can scrimmage and train all you want internally but when you have another team on the otherside of the ball, its different. Style of play; their aggressive first to the ball then play into the corners simply do not work when other teams have top talent back line. Set pieces are also part of their arsenal but the little speedsters cannot win most battles against girls who are now 3,4,5 inches taller, but with skill. BB by his own admmission also never had open try outs until this year because the club made him (why would he all he did was win). Maybe one of the biggest things is intimidation factor. Usually when that light blue PDA jersey faces lesser teams, those teams might already be beaten by reputation alone. In ECNL, no teams fear anybody and now that the almighty PDA is 0-3, I am sure its quite the opposite and clubs are smelling blood in the water. As a parent whose player plays against PDA, its an added bonus for those smug PDA parents to be humbled and eat a little crow.
Good luck to all the teams in their seasons and in state Cup, just my opinion.

Anonymous said...

I agree with everything you just said except smug parents. There is 1-2, every team has them in every sport. You are obviously basing your opinion on looks and assumptions. I assure you, besides the aforementioned 1-2, you are way off. As you pointed out earlier, I think you may be falling prey to the intimidation factor as well. Try a clean slate. Good people who want the same for their kid as you do.

Anonymous said...

Agreed 10:20

Don't make it personal to the parents.

Analyze the coaching and the system.

Everyone in the area now knows how this team plays and if you have equal talent(talented back line-good technical players that know how to pass and talented strikers, It is easy to beat this system.

I am sure the coach will blame it on the kids but they are doing what they've been taught and now that every coach in the area has their number, it is pretty easy to defend.

They will do much better against teams out of the area where they can employ their tactics.

Anonymous said...

OK, here is something you seldom see if ever on this blog...I apologize to those other 98% of PDA parents for lumping you in with the bad 1-2.
If you look at that ECNL conference, there are no lesser teams out of the area they can take advantage of. East Meadow, so far undeafeated. Stars and Breakers in Mass, always solid teams. MF, NJ v NJ braging rights. If you go by last years records they probably under estimated WC. They obviously got stronger as did all the other ECNL clubs. There will be no cheap wins for club. Over the top or dump in the corner are not good tactics if thats your main style of play. IMHO, they better learn good technical clean possession soccer (and quick). Someone stood up to Iron Mike Tyson's tough bully persona once and he was never the same.

EDP north just as strong as ecnl ,HBC won spirit,beating top ecnl teams

Anonymous said...

No they are not.. HBC a nice team but just becacuse they won one major tournament in their history - doesnt make them the end all- be all.

That team may be able to compete in the ECNL but then again maybe not.

It will be a tough grind.

perhaps They may make an argument to replace east meadow as that team is weak, even though they are off to a good start. toughest part of the schedule is ahead of them.

How do you get your kid included etc. BTW kid plays EDP

ECNL has there own ID2 program under U.S club.

EDP has there own program as well.

The goal is the same. Find talent no matter where they play.


Anonymous said...

HBC parent, its great that you won against ECNL, but your statment was about the EDP North. I am sure you are a good team, but here is the difference as much as all teams want to win, the tournaments are your lifeblood. yOu need the almighty GS points. ECNL couldn't care less and maybe just used it as a warm up for the season. As I said I am sure everyone wanted to win but when the NY Yankees play Virginia Tech in Spring Training, VT is dying to win and the Yankees just dont want to get hurt as they have bigger fish to fry.

Haven't been to the site in a while, came to see if there was some comedy...................

Not much, where has all the banter gone?????

Very little if anything on State Cup draw, except two good comments

Blind draw - don't believe it!

Where is GFA? And still no response..........Did the coach forget to register?

What about PDA Hornets? Or will they only do the US Club where they control the brackets?

Very Early Predictions ---

Real vs Freehold in Second Round a good match up - Think Real may take it in a close physical game.

Copa will advance to play NJ Stallions......But think NJ Stallions will beat COPA

Toss up between Real and NJ Stallions

TSF vs Wall........More than likely TSF, unless they lost players to GFA

Holmdel get a walk through drawing Jackson then Moorestown (the team with the coaches with matching outfits --- kind of like kicking & screaming movie, just saying) But early results show Holmdel not what they were last year.

TSF vs Holmdel could be a good match.

NJ Rush vs NJ Wildcats ---- very interesting match.......Two teams that have some talent and play a very physical style of soccer. It is a pick'em. But given what I read about Wildcats - They seem to be playing well, running up the score in their games........

Brick vs TRIC ----- Same bat channel....I don't think that TRIC can ring that bell twice, Brick wins in an ugly game.

Then Brick vs SJEB, don't these teams play each other every other week? I will take SJEB.....Just to get a rise out of the brick coach.................

STA may lose to Stronghold.....So predict and upset of sorts and will take Stronghold to advance and then will knock off Watchung.

NJ Crush has an easy road to Stronghold.

I will take Stronghold again in upset...........................

so that makes it

NJ Stallions vs TSF/NJX

SJEB vs NJ CRUSH

Stallions vs SJEB

SJEB State Cup Winner.....

Again just for fun........


Where is the COPA Guy?

Yes we all know PDA is the best girls club in the NJ and the country....But on 11 can play at one time and all of the players can't play for PDA............

MF got better but we all knew that would happen.......it is the ECNL effect......................

Old Bridge is the best team and will soar to Disney and San Diego....Just not to play in tournaments...................

All just a joke.........Good Luck to all of the players, yes the players.....not all of you that place the meaningless posts on this site....(but do love it when coaches immediately respond to defend themselves.......That is high comedy ; ) )

Have a great fall season and stay healthy!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

3:38, maybe unknowing parents care about GS points but ECNL teams/clubs do not care nor chase GS points. We are in our own league with our own playoffs and our own national crown. Our league does not hand out points for merely being in the league. That is why if you know anything top teams like PDA, Michigan Hawks, San Deigo Surf, FC Dallas you will see their rankings all start to drop. The only points will be from showcase tournaments and ECNL final rankings, but points are minimal at best.

No. But it is a published RANKING of teams in your state.

You are either the parent or the kid posting.

No one cares. There are many great players at this level. They are not being advertised on this Blog.

There are quite a few ahead of this girl. Also at the younger ages, there are many girls better, again not being advertised. Why the need for self promotion?

In the end, let it be, If you will go further, your play will determine how far, not what you post on a Blog.

I bet it would probably kill you if I named 3 players that were better than you even at the younger age goup.

And I know you know one of them because we have spoke of her. So please stop the nonsense and get off our Blog. Go back to your age group.

There may be some '00 birth year U14 better no doubt, but bet there are not many better at birth year '01.

1) The list you posted was a 2001 group list.

2) Two girls on the same regional list as she is on is fighting for playing time on our ECNL team.


Because I know these girls, I put little value in a 2001 Regional List.

If she is a good as you proclaim, she will compete in the Id2 camps in the ecnl against other fine players around the region.

The 2 Girls on the same regional list as this girl have no shot at the id 2 camps because they are battling for playing time.


You are most certainly not an ECNL parent, your perspective on the talent pool is very narrow.

I agree with the previous poster, you are either the player or the parent cuz nobody else would give two sh*ts to go through the trouble, post a link to make a point. Yes my daughter was there at region camp and there were better players than her from our state, but would i ever give a second thought and defend someone elses name if I weren't related in some way, NO!
btw, RED and BLUE group doesnt mean anything, at this adge there is a region pool, but no regional team, thus no camp. the only thing this does is you can put it on your early soccer resume and you can skip state tryouts until March.

you are nuts. the red group is the A group as it is for '00. I have an '00. if anyone cares to do so print the list and then compare it to the national camp list that will be published on topdrwaer and soccer America and all the other soccer rags and of courser on the usysa and region 1 websites. Yes indeed each region will send its best u13 '01s to Az national camp and though it is possible one or 2 red listed players will be left off the camp list last year not the case. It is well known that the red list is the A list sorry. Jealous much and no again I have never even seen the kid play, but you guys saying that she isn't good is just plain wrong when unbiased observers chose her from a field of 500. call me polyanna that I think a wrong should be righted.

Oh ..so now we know you are an older lady.. grandmother perhaps?

Your writing gives you away.

I dont know the girl but I put very little value in an ODP regional list since two players on the red regional list are fighting for playing time on ECNL teams.

Perhaps she belongs with best players in region-perhaps not, but one thing is for sure, those other players aren't being advertised on some silly blog.

Please leave this poor girl alone. Why does everyone care so much? I saw her play once thought she was good but I was not blown away. But that was just one day. Maybe it was a bad day. Maybe it was indicative. Who knows!!! I certainly don't. Time will tell. For now, let's just leave it that she is good and wish her well wherever she plays and if she gets to National Camp, lets all be glad for her.

Wall v Greater .flemington- wall

Jackson v NJX- NJX

brick v TRIC - Brick

Sta v Stronghold - STA

Medford v FC Maximus- FC maximus ( no clue about either team random guess)

Thoughts ,,,

Also have no idea about FC Maximus and Medford.

Agree with picks except I will take Jackson over NJX. Bad blood between them. Remember LC used to coach in Jackson and there were issues between the two teams. Jackson will be very motivated in this game.

Anonymous said...

There is no bad blood.These teams match up well. Always very close with one blow out going Jacksons way 4-0

RUT-ROW !
Looks like Jackson and NJX are due up to the bashing table.

Jackson,NJX....come-on down!

Giving Brick and PDA a well deserved break.
LOL LOL LOL

1st round predictions.. I agree with your post with the exception of the Brick v TRIC match-up.
TRIC beat both Brick and NJ Force last season, now they are combined and Brick has something to prove.
TRIC, I don't think has had much play in the last few months.
Should be a interesting match.

NJX couldnt even beat Freehold. Take one player off of NJX and you have a MOSA team

Anonymous said...

And Freehold couldn't beat NJX.
Go back to your troll hole.
Not a NJX or a Freehold parent,
I read the post On the "come-on down" post and knew this was coming.

I dint know Jackson still had a team.

Didn't

Agree with most of the predictions, but think Stronghold can possibly pull off an upset over STA, rumors have state that STA have a few players on the DL.

NJX and Jackson, I think NJX takes it, although they are not as strong as they were last year. Also not the same Jackson team that NJX coach was involved with, but I don't think that Jackson team appreciated her either.

Brick and TRIC --- you would think that Brick would take this easily but TRIC is a quality team and could fare well again over the weekend. Brick was suppose to be much improved but have yet to show that form this season, based upon scores.

Rage is rebuilding, probably should have competed in the state cup rather than at this level. But wish them well and it would be great to see them take down COPA.

Good Luck to all the teams, may the better team in each game take the win and move to the next round.

Yes always a close one with Jackson-NJX . Talent wise NJX is clearly superior but agree bad blood motivates..

Anonymous said...

Freehold is still a quality team. Almost every team lost quality players. Some to lateral moves and some to ECNL teams.STA, barons, NJX, Rage , FC Copa all lost players and have new ones trying to gel I am sure. Good luck to all teams in the cup!

Never said I was from Freehold or NJX. Relax big boy.

There are very few teams that are "superior" to any other team.

Second year in a row IGFA avoids state cup. Club does not want to spend the money for NJYS passes which is pretty sad. The can qualify for EDP so this is about them saving money.

Anonymous said...

Who the @#$% cares. You people are "clearly" jeleous it's crazy. GFA has a great team. Respect it! Coach was nice as well as the parents.Most of these teams are so close it is just a goal difference. So just be happy where you play and where you pay!And if you are not happy don't bad mouth other teams.

Anonymous said...

These comments are really funny. I saw most of the NJX vs Freehold game... From what I saw looked like Freehold only had a few shots on net..... Why would one girl make a difference?? I heard there Def. That they lost was very good... The forward was lazy.....

GFA chose not to join state cup as a club this year and last year. So are they too cheap to join or are they that incompetent that they screwed up the registration for all of their teams two years in a row.

5:15 - Copa were dominated Saturday... By who?

They tied HBC 2-2. Only lost to them 2-1 at Spirit... And HBC won the bracket (top flight)

Hardly a domination is it. Copa fighting hard after losing players. Still a strong team but not as strong as last year.

Anonymous said...

I do not understand why Copa lost players. They won their NPL bracket and went to Nationals when SJEB backed out. The coach left, but why would such a successful team in the npl not be a place to stay? Where did they go that is a better place?

Anonymous said...

Copa forward went to MF ECNL team. Another Copa forward quit and not playing soccer this fall for social reasons. Both these players were big goalscorers for them last year.

Does anyone know anything about the TIP ? Should one consider this program for their child?

Anonymous said...

Yes, of course

Unless she is playing enough soccer already. Careful with overload.

Anonymous said...

TIP is a program that does some training and then selects a TIP team for the age group. You need to be recommended by your coach and as you guessed there are quite a few coaches kids out there.

Anonymous said...

Not true...players are recommended by club directors of coaching. Then there is a tryout. If the kid is good enough, she makes TIP, which is free. If she doesn't make TIP she is offered a spot in the ETC, which you pay for. Recommendations also come from being seen by TIP coaches at tournaments.

I assume ECNL has there own ID program

Yes it is called the US national team.

Well aren't we a bit arrogant. Good luck with that! Just because YOU pay the money doesn't mean the real deserving players won't actually be on the national squad. The cream rises and you just might sink despite the expense.

Anonymous said...

Deserving players both in and out of the ECNL but mostly in.

1:10pm comment is 100% accurate. #TRUTH

The national team?. Really? 99.2 % of he ECNL girls will not make the national team
Unless little Mia is currently the #1 or 2 player u can stuff that pipe dream, even if she is it's still not likely .

Anonymous said...

You people are nuts,the real players come out at u16 not u14 this is still like REC

Anonymous said...

Maybe only .8% of the ECNL girls will make the national team, but the roster of the U20 WNT is made of of 90% ECNL'ers. The U20 team had only 2 non-ecnl members on the team. Nobody is getting a free pass just because they are ECNL, but like it or not the girls that can make it there are the cream of the crop. Forget national team, look at any top ranked D1 school and see how many of those girls came from ECNL clubs. You can hate all you want, but whose vouching will a D1 coach more likely believe if they say "I have a player your should check out", the DoC of PDA, Michigan Hawks or SD Surf or the DoC of COPA?

Anonymous said...

And how many of those D1 ECNL players quit after one year from burnout? Careful what you wish for. Make sure it's what she really wants.

Anonymous said...

and how'd the U20 WNT do this year?

Anonymous said...

"U20 team had only 2 non-ecnl"

@ u14 these U20
were odp & town teams..no ecnl then

yes at u16-18 most top players will end up ecnl so many of the current u14 girls will be replaced

Anonymous said...

Too bad the nj odp team doesnt play the 2 ecnl team, it would end this conversation & it would be a good chance for the ecnl coaches to see some of their future players

if someone is against this game i like to know why?

Anonymous said...

boy, your just a bundle of positive energy...

Burnout, yes of course there is always a chance for burn out, just as there is training classical piano or anything else you put so much time into.

"and how'd the U20 WNT do this year?"
thats not the point they were a majority ECNL and they were on the team. Don't change the topic of getting there with results.

"@ u14 these U20
were odp & town teams..no ecnl then "
There were always premier leagues and club teams, not justs town (rec ball).
if you think that at U16-18 you can jump on a ECNL team and knock someone off that the coach has invested the previous 2 years (U14) with a player new player good luck. It will take a star,an immediate starting XI player to know off an existing player, why do you think there was so muuch movement this year?

Anonymous said...

There are 2-5 players from any of the top non ecnl teams (25+) which could easily replace a players on any of the 2 ecnl teams, correct you seen some of it happen this year, more next & then the following at u16, then the teams roster will start to settle for u17-18

at u14 you been around this game for for a while so you know there is always someone better

Anonymous said...

"coach has invested" now that's funny.. "invested" they acquire the next better player

Anonymous said...

You only make these comments to give your own daughter hope that one day she joins this ECNL team..

But chances are she won't make it



Anonymous said...

You will meet her next yr or the year after. Wait your kid will be gone..

Its a fact look at the older teams, how many invested girls moved into starting slots vs acquired? How many invested (pda) move up from the b or c teams vs girls who are ask to move down to make room for acquired talent.

Sorry

Anonymous said...

Most teams disband by U18 so of course the National teamers are going to be mostly ECNL.

Where else wpuld a top player play?

You have it backwards that the ECNL team created the player. It's just where the player is being housed, basically for a place to play interstate soccer.

Thank you for proving my point.

Good Luck to your daughter!

If you only knew!

I guess we will see you the "year after that"

It's soccer, not baseball or football. Did you see the game? It was never in question. The ball was in the TRIC end most of the game. Brick missed several opportunities, especially on at least 4 very good crosses. Also hit the crossbar once.

Lol! Saying NJX is better than Jackson is like saying the jets are better than the giants. Neither are of any consequence.

Sure was. First one was in the first half. Made a good move on a defender and sent a great ball to the quick little striker who finished it. And second one was just a quick drop and switch to the other side to another quick striker. Two good goals. Best opportunities of the game I think. Actually really the only good scoring opportunities. Sorry but like I said I call it like I see it. I just wasn't that impressed with either teams play.
