Wow 1600 that means the average person spent 5.555 whole days (24 hours*5.5) of their life on this blog reading & replying... are you more or less? Be truthful.....
or 2400....if you want to get technical.
She made varsity!! I thought tryouts are not finished yet!! So it is true what everyone is talking about! It you are part of the click!! I guess you won't pay varsity!!
Yes.....the politics of HS soccer is ridulous! Maybe if the school has a great record and is one of the top teams in the state; but to play on a team that has a worse record than any rec soccer team and to be coached by a coach who typically knows nothing about soccer and who typically doesn't care about the safety of the players for a winning season - IT'S NOT WORTH THE RISK OF INJURY if you daughter is going to play at the collegiate level.It's fun for a little while; but if your daughter is a determined player who knows what she's doing on the field just wait to you see the games........it takes you back to the worse rec games ever and the refereeing is worse.Sometimes they want to play for a school; but that doesn't mean it's HS....emotionally they may be ready to play at the college level....the HS experience doesn't come anywhere close to the college experience.Oh by the way, if you think there are parents who beat their chest who think their daughter is the next soccer sensation....just wait to you hear the HS parents...you would think that the WNT is going to right to one of their games because these players are going to get recruited to major college soccer teams....NOT. The only sport that really recruits from HS effectively is Football........let' hope all your daughters remain injury free and it doesn't slow their game down too much
So did Princeton/GFA drop out of spirit United this weekend to duck Commack?
7:20 yes that is the reason, now go back to talk about HS . Thanks
Its ok jv not bad for her,keep paying for extra training and the DOC will keep sending her to id camp.
Why did GFA went to Princeton? all their NPL teams are now GFA/Princeton. What happened to their merge with TSF?
Sprited United ends at U14 - New seasons starts 8/1 - therefore U15s now would not be eligible to participate....not because anyone is ducking competition.
The two heads of the clubs had falling in love then hate a fight and split up and split the kids in the settlement now gfa is dating princeton and some gfa kids went to pda and matchfit mad at there 2 dads.any other questions.
1:32- just clearing some misinformation. spirit United ends at U-15. The u15 girls played this weekend on the boys weekend. GFA applied but withdrew. Don't know the reason and don't really care. Candidly, I'm sure their girls could use a break.
Spirit United played a u-15 girls bracket this weekend during he boys weekend and the application was available for u16 but they could not fill the bracket. The link is below. You have to scroll down to the bottom to see it. http://events.gotsport.com/events/?eventid=43834So GFA dropped out to avoid losing to Commack again.
7:58 yes you keep repeating yourself and the answer is yes , they were too scared and decided to hide in a cave to avoid Commack, now go back to your sad life. You did your usual job today . Come back tomorrow with something negative again . What an idiot lol . Remember your daughter was not good enough. You need to accept it . Lol
8:28 what HS is this?
Oh Eddie how sad you are
NJ elite will be tops by the end of the year. New players making big impact.
big impact on who? nobody is playing anyone right now.
NJ Elite will be tops at the Lyndhurst SPOOKTACULAR. You'll see, we are unstoppable!
"In our town a certain father picks who is going to play Varsity and the coach listens to him. Many juniors were overlooked to bring freshmen and sophomores who play for the same team. Politics, politics!! Wait until these players have to earn their spot without daddy looking after them!! LOL"Which town are you speaking of exactly?
NJ Elite is a weak program.
It's Watchung Hills . The results are out a certain influential dad made recommendations to the coach and he took them
Is that a real town?
Congrats to all the girls that made Varsity. Does that affect tournaments in Oct.?
Tournaments "should" be scheduled for Nov or after. But.
Late Nov. Def. but some teams are in Tourn. before.
It SHOULD affect October eventsPlaying for club during your school season is selfish, isnt it?
Playing for your club team during HS is selfish? Damn right. Because it's all about your kid and the club/academy is where your kid is seen. No college coaches follow HS. Your club is priority. HS is fun.
There are many college showcases late Nov.,Dec, and January.
Playing club tournaments while doing high school is asking for injury from over use. I don't recommend it.
The injuries don't come from club - the injuries come from playing HS - some teams train 7 days a week preseason; play 3-4 games a week and train upwards of 3 hours on the days there are no games.By the time the players are finished with HS season they are worn down and ready for injuries just when the tournaments start for club....somebody needs to tell these teacher coaches for HS teams that they are doing more harm than good; but I guess they really don't care - it's an extra paycheck for them; some HS coaches think it's a way to get to a college level coaching position and the only time HS soccer gets any recognition from colleges is if a player is playing both club and HS and the HS is one of the top 5-10 team in the state or region.......everything else for HS is fun....and to be honest it's not that much fun if half the team is a rec playing level and you have some girls from a club playing level.
Idiot -If you choose to play HS - it is 6 days a weekThus, having made that choice - and you ALSO choose to play club, it is the CLUB games/practices that put you over the top re: getting injuredYes, this is what we mean by being selfish - and also reckless with your daughter's health and general well being.If the club is begging her to play on her "off day" from school ball, find another club.
To 9:37 p.m....you're the idiot. Our HS team does practice 7 days a week; how can you debate a topic/point when you know absolutely nothing about that school/township/team I'm referring to you. Do you normally talk without knowing what your're talking about.Second, I wasn't really asking for your opinion or advice; the clubs don't put the pressure on the girls/players...it's the HS teacher/coaches who do.Lastly, I'm not reckless with my daughter's health - she's doesn't play HS soccer because, frankly, it's a waste of her time and talent and neither one of us wants to risk injury for players who don't take the game seriously....for most HS players it's a way to get out of Gym and do a fall sport....that's it.
Then STFU - if your daughter doesnt playHave a nice club season
Or maybe your problem is your kid's club team has beenw eakened by other girls choosing to play HSGet over it, shirley
HS is horrible soccer period. Socially all girls want to play but girls go back to their clubs worst than they left. That is a fact. If you love HS soceer is only for your own ego and since your daughter is not that good in her club , you are all happy that she gets to play more in the HS team and she is a star. You can say what you want but this is reality
Your daughters are not the next Mia Hamm so get over it and let them have fun and play at the same time.... Life's too short. All academy teams do not train or go to college showcases until HS season is over. That's a fact!
To 8:02 a.m. to you and the other parents who simply don't get it - HS soccer is not fun if your daughter is a very good/great player; it seems like for a short while until they get frustrated with the poor quality of girls playing HS and it's simply not worth the risk of injury for the club season/tournaments that they could miss because of HSMaybe if they did away with teacher/coaches and brought in club coaches who know what they're doing than maybe the quality of play would improve and there would be less injuries and better win records. I have found that most teenagers, regardless of the sport, don't have fun when they loose and are playing with less skilled players than themselves.
Sounds elitist. Good thing Carli Lloyd and Abby Wombach didn't have this blog. They would have missed out on high school soccer memories with their stinky friends.
Superstar club players cant hack not being fawned over by a HS coach who is training players three years older and has to fold in the hotshot freshman's egoWhen said ego goes unstroked all the parent can think of doing is ripping the HS systemOf course some school ball is very very good as well. This cant be deniedAnd the idea that club coaches should also coach school teams is absurd. Some can handle it but this is a remarkable commitment of time, the afternoon sessions followed by nights, the 6 days a week plus the travel to other locales on weekends.Simply very tough to wear both hats
The decision to play or not play HS is not elitist and it has nothing to do with egos. My daughter did play HS last year and it was an underwhelming experience for her: players were not as skilled as she; coaching was terrible; refereeing was terrible; and while she joined to have "fun" she quickly realized it wasn't fun and not worth the risk of injury for games that typically don't matter to a lot of players....it's a way to get out of Gym and say you did a Fall sport.....I don't know how it is with some top schools in the state but it wasn't worth for her.Least we forgot how politically it is......there's always a parent coaching the teacher coach on who he should have on each bench instead of letting the process determine who is best suited for each team. Last year Varsity had 30 players......maybe 18 played but that was done because players had to say they were on Varsity.....the process is pathetic not fun..it's a shame for those players who are really passionate about the game the HS experience can be dismal at best.
Maybe some of you this is your first round in HS soccer. I am on my 3rd and all three loved HS soccer. Yes, they also play and have played for academies. Everyone has there own opinion.
8:48- This sounds so much like our town. We have a father who coaches the coach about who should be in the Varsity team So the same players that play together for the same travel team about 15 of them are in varsity. Everyone else, it does not matter if you also play for a high level academy or high level team or if you are very good pl not player, you are not even looked at for varsity. This year the players got very upset and we had about 10 seniors and juniors quit the varsity team because they knew that they will not see any playing action because they are not part of the town click!!Sad but true, next year my daughter may just stick with the sport she does in the Spring where she has a varsity letter already!!Its a waste of time since your child will never be given a chance!!
So, 8:48 - your daughter didnt play much then, eh?Cant have that now, can we?
HS soccer is only socially good for the girls at the beginning, after that nobody likes it or has any soccer development value. Who is here saying how great HS ball is , just a father or mother of a mediocre player that gets to be a start in HS as she never made it to top teams or somebody that has a big ego to forget about his daughter development.
To 3:50 she did play every game and was a starter for every game; so you'll have to take your condescending tone and attitude and divert it someplace else.I'm glad for some the HS experience has fun for them.
HS soccer is torture for me. But it's not about me. My daughter is associating with school mates, developing new connections with her in town friends and is enjoying such things like walking to practice or stopping in at convenient store for a snack with new teammates. Yes, the level of play is well below the club level that we are accustomed to but it's not about me right now. It's about her. With a little effort after the HS season, and a well orchestrated program her club team will regroup and prepare for the real deal. Hopefully injuries are at a minimum and that their rate of regression is little enough to impact the speed of play. "I rather watch paint dry, wack myself with a hammer constantly or stab myself in the neck repeatedly than watch HS soccer"
USYSA pulled the trigger. Birth year classification starting next season (2016-17) US club will soon follow. Big mix up about to happen
So what does this mean, exactly, and how does this impact players starting next year?
My daughter playes 'Academy' scooer and is a starter at the highest level in the state and also plays school soocer. she loves school soccer. is it tough to watch and do i hold my breath every hoping she doesn't get injured everytime she takes the field - absolutely. However, i belive that school soccer has made her a better player and person. it has provided her the opportunity to see the field, and learn the game, from many different positions. this has given her a first person (from the other positions) understanding of how her 'fixed' position on her club team affects and interacts with everyone else on the field. more importantly, i have seen her grow as a leader by working with the girls on the team that aren't as skilled as she it. this is a life lesson and experience that i hope she continues to build on as she continues to grown into a fine young lady, athlete and student. this has also elevated her'leadership' profile within her club team.
.. and sorry for all the typos. i stink at typing on my phone.
All competition will be based on birth yearhttp://www.usyouthsoccer.org/assets/1/15/2016-SSG-BIRTH-YEAR-USYS-FAQ.pdfhttp://www.usyouthsoccer.org/assets/1/15/2016-SSG-BIRTH-YEAR-USYS-FAQ.pdf
10:56. Get yourself a stylus, works for me!
GFA better hope all of their players are born before August if this re-org takes place.
Its more like teams will hope all their players are born in 2001 or later. All the Aug to Dec 2000 kids who are eligible to play now and would be playing u16 for the 2016/2017 season would need to play u17 according to the rules. Some teams may lose a lot of their core players.
Last paragraph from the story:"The birth-year registration initiative will not cause the dissolution of age-group based teams that already play together, but will rather give players the opportunity to ‘play up’ with older age-groups."
Typically the team with more of the older players are better especially at the younger ages; now the older players will be the youngest and probably will not be the "mia" player on the team ... This will effect chances getting the scholarship to a d1.Life can change at a moments notice and so we say "good bye" to many parents who will now move on to the older blog and will have nothing to say as their star goes from 1-8 to 10-22 & in turn will be looked at less by colleges.And "hello" to many of the mid age player's (jan-jun) parents who will now be more vocal as their kids become the older/better players on the team.
What's to stop a younger player from playing up? Is it forbidden?
no you can always play up.
This birth year thing makes no sense whatsoever for girls. What happens when your birth year has half juniors and half seniors? The girls who are juniors will lose half their teammates when they become seniors.Since college play is the goal for all level girls, they should just go by graduation year with a max age restriction built in. Everyone on the team in the same boat. Would make life easier for everyone, especially when it comes to college recruiting.
You are clueless. It ties everything to the national teams.
More important what happens to the got soccer points, ratings? Who will be the new top teams in the age group? Which teams has the most to lose, gain?
GFA #1 in the Nation! Got most points. Can't take that away. We will reload if they break our age group up.
6:45 hey , you are back with trying to put GFA on the spot again, it was so much better without you around for few days. Unfortunately you are back with your way of provoking and pretending to be part of Gfa . Your hate doesn't end . Feel sorry for you, what a miserable life you are living. Only because your daughter was not good enough. But I am sure she will do great in HS soccer so why don't you focus on that for a while and you come back ..... Hopefully never. Nobody is biting but I am sure you will answer your message yourself to get this negativity going. Nobody cares anyway. You have nothing else after all so if it helps your sad life go ahead.
GFA 8 Hawks ECNL 2. GFA is the best team in the country. We beat a team that was +57 in goals, what did your team do? You can't deny it! You are the troll who's daughter isn't good enough for us. GFA #1 in the USA ! We will dominate next season before the realignment.

10:52 thank you for starting this bs , we were having good conversation about HS and age rules but you have to step in with your hating comments and start problems . Idiot .
NOO! Freehold will be #1! Best players, best coach, best manager - the BEST
Didn't want anyone to forget how awesome GFA is for beating the Hawks B-team, I mean ECNL team by 6 goals. You remind us on the blog as soon as the final whistle blows. Just a reminder for the rest of us during the offseason who the best in the U.S. is.
7:23 why You cannot stop, i am not even involved with This team but really you are be coming annoying, is really impossible to have some decent conversation without you stepping in with your negativity? It is not even in the contest of the conversation, you really want to move the attention of the blog to attacking a team, it is so clear that really bothers me and I am sure some other parents over here. This is nothing the regular bashing ( that already is pretty disgusting) it is personal. Please keep your frustration out of here cause nobody really cares about it and is really offensive . You should be ashamed of yourself. I wish other people would tell you to stop . I am sure your intelligence level is really low so you will reply and keep doing what you are doing.
7:52 you are wrong , it was you the posted all that stuff to create problem. And they are not the best team but still your daughter was not good enough. Move on to your new great fantastic team. I am sure you are going to lead there soon when everybody realize what kind of person you are, now go back to your sad life lol
Pda is the best team nobody forget!!!
NJ ELITE with the new manager of the team and his fantastic daughter is the team to beat ! What a great summer they had, want everybody to remember the great games they played and total domination they showed!! Go Nj elite
