U16G / U16 Girls youth soccer in Region 1

This girls age bracket garners regional and national attention--ECNL, academy, club and town teams--very competitive, highly talented. Looking ahead to college play possibilities. Go for it.

4:00 It seems that this is the trend in many club were they bring players from other teams within the club to play games for other teams and/or players. In our club is worse, they bring younger players to play in our team because their roster is 20+ since they want to continue collecting the $$$. Those players come in a get to play almost the whole game while Mia watches and cheer from the sideline. THIS REALLY HAS TO STOP, THEY ARE RIPPING PARENTS AND KIDS OFF SINCE KIDS ARE NOT BEING DEVELOPED AND THEY ARE USE US JUST TO GET AND ADDITIONAL 2,000 A YEAR.I was glad to see that this happens in other clubs as well.

Players are not being developed it is just about the $$$$$$

Anonymous said...

Duh ?
You relly think it is about developmemt? Again, They have already picked players to develop and play on several teams throughout the club. These players will play and get better, while the others stay stagnet and finance the teams.

While both the efficacy and wisdom of the ACA can and probably should be debated, this forum is not the appropriate location for that discussion.
To the extent that anyone does post here, let's please keep it on topic.

Anyone care about pda or delco cup this weekend? Or should someone just drive a sword thru the heart of this blog and lay it to rest for good?

PDA should be fun. Lots of great teams playing.

I was looking at some of the results at PDA this weekend and FC Virginia's results popped out at me. For the second time this year, they come out of the ECNL where they win everything and play non ECNL teams and lose. Not a knock on FC Virginia at all but I think the lesson here is that it's a shame that college budgets and the system steer coaches to go to all the ECNL events and miss many of the other events because it's obvious that a lot of great teams are not in the ECNL if one of the best teams ECNL has to offer can't go .500 at a non ECNL tournament. I've been to National league events and the college lists are half the size that you see at a middle of the road match at an ECNL showcase between two teams that would struggle to do well in the Colonial League.

Anonymous said...

Agree it's a shame...and apparently based on incorrect assumptions about quality outside ECNL. Don't forget the ECNL national champion in this age group from two years ago (Albion) has found it challenging to have comparable success outside ECNL. And the ECNL national champion from last year, Eclipse, has found it valuable for players to compete in Nat'l League with most of the same ECNL players/team. That's a statement by itself as they certainly don't need to for college exposure..they want to compete against the best.

Anonymous said...

Don't be naive and go by the lists.
Most colleges sign-up to(so call attend tournaments) just to get communication going and promote their own Summer Camps/ID Camps.Very few really actually attend.
At PDA, not more then a dozen or so max at most top games, and less at the others.
I talked to one D1 coach and he had 5 players he was interested in
on Monday's games. Was not even in NJ Sat/Sun. Dynamite beat Coyotes Monday. I hear most of the top players from both teams have signed already anyways.
Bunch of D3 schools now looking for left-overs.

Anonymous said...

Incorrect more coaches at Saturday and Sunday games same with all showcases. A lot of coaches want to spend Memorial Day with their families. As for only top players getting committed and the rest getting only D3...couldn't be further from the truth. Naivity is on your part it seems

Anonymous said...

San Diego Surf vs Fc Bucks had 93 college coaches at their game. A lot of coaches and other team players were also there to watch.

All the game had 50 plus from what I was told.

Anonymous said...

BS on the 12 coaches or most of top players already committed. The lists are created by parents who hand out team brochures and who write down the names of each coach they meet and the lists are routinely 50+ strong. If you want to say that the top 5 to 8 kids on the top teams already have committable offers then I can buy that but to say they have all committed is very unlikely. The bigger tragedy is how many of them that do commit do so because they think they will lose out on what is almost always a partial scholarship at best if they just tell these coaches to wait a few months.

Had nothing to do with ducking cups but everything to do with two organizations setting things up so 1 team like eclipse can't run the table in bit organizations again.

Nonsense... check all your egos at the door. All of the teams in Region 1 mentioned above are all excellent and have beaten each other on any given day. Does it really matter if one team ranks 2% higher than the other? Whether one is ECNL or non-ECNL? They are all very good and will have many players recruited to play in college. The rest is just parental ego.

One win and you come on here pounding your chest. Why do you think this blog was so quiet for so long? You ever stop to think why?? Soccer does the talking, that's why. Have some class please.

Anonymous said...

Coyotes, Syracuse, and Stallions are still the class of this region and nation. Any other teams (especially in USYS) are irrelevant in the "top team talk." No other team but coyotes and syracuse have made nationals. That simple, you don't get to the big dance, you can't be considered. Only reason Stallions are is because of their showing all the time. For God's sake, Coyotes won nationals 2 years ago and finished 3rd/4th last year and they aren't in the top 5 in THIS region?? This blog has now officially become so inaccurate and biased. Sad.

Anonymous said...

Coyote parent calm down! 1 person gives an opinion and your heart broken.

To be honest you haven't beaten stallions last few times.
You tied fc virginia last few times.
You lost to PDA n tied them last few times.
So I can understand why you are behind them.
Syracuse is regional champ. So would you like to be 5th?
Oh wait fc bucks is up there as well since they made nationals in usclub.

I just wanted to show you how people think however if so believe your team can beat anyone in region 1 any given day. So it doesn't matter if someone thinks your 1 or 10. We all know where you stand.

Anonymous said...

FC Philly still #1 in region 1.

Anonymous said...

Coyotes lost their defense effectiveness. Besides the all everything speedster defender/ and sometimes forward, the defense lacks speed and others have now overtaken and overpowered the once gutsy middle defender whom is slow and seems to be injured all the time.
Coyotes need to score more now, because the days of 1-0 or PK wins are over.Although, their mid field will always be tops. Now at this age, a team needs more then just a great mid field.

Anonymous said...

Well stated above poster.

Those other teams that were mentioned have a mid field but what they all have most is the best defense!

Anonymous said...

Check on gotsoccer. Stallions won newss, CASL, Disney, Jefferson, Dallas, PDA and region 1 prem league and region 1 play offs. Winning all games all in a row with out any tie or loss totaling 40 odd games. They eventually lose in state finals 1-0 when they had already qualified through r1pl for regions. I don't know of any other team that had so much success in a spell. Incredible.

Anonymous said...

Coyotes' run included Maryland State Champion, R1 Champion, National Champion, National League Champion, R1 Premier League Champion -- and throw in Players Cup in Vegas and Discovery Cup. That was pretty good run. And has now qualified for 3 consecutive National Championships. Very consistent.

Anonymous said...

Yes but there was other games in between that they lost and tied. Amazing record also. I was really just referring to the run. Coyotes are top 2 with stallions. Others are somewhat off the pace of these two teams successes over the last 2-3 years. Although it has to be said stallions have had them the last two occasions. The 1-0 scores tell you it's always a close encounter

Anonymous said...

I'll be open, I'm a parent from Oakwood and my niece plays for Stallions. Stallions and Coyotes are BY FAR the best teams in region 1 for USYSA. I don't know much about PDA and FC Bucks, but Stallions and Coyotes are just the best. That plain and simple. Coyotes three straight national championship qualifiers, two straight National League top 2 finishes. And Stallions are just a steady, scary, good team. Enough of this stupid talk.

Let's talk about who has the best shots to win group play and go to nationals.

First up Region 1 championships
http://events.gotsport.com/events/resultsgrid.aspx?EventID=38588&GroupID=354584

Bracket A is the deepest bracket with most quality teams from top to bottom. I think it comes down to the last game of the weekend coyotes vs legacy. I will give the nod to coyotes. However don't sleep of the current champs or legacy. If coyotes have trouble scoring it could be a few ties and out for them.
Bracket b doesn't have much depth and I think beadling walks to semis. Bracket C has 2 great teams from the same state after that the other two teams won't pose a challenge. Can the stallions overcome their state cup loss to nj rush? Can nj rush beat them again. Whoever wins this bracket should make it to finals as they will be the favorite in semis haunts beadling. Bracket D comes down to the last day as well it should be Brentwood vs pwsi. I'll give the slight edge to va champs with their run to end in semis against coyotes.

Semis matchup
Pwsi vs coyotes
Stallions vs beadling

Finals
Stallions vs coyotes

Champs and well deserved this year

STALLIONS

I'll be back to talk about ecnl playoffs once schedules are posted.

Anonymous said...

Nice summary. One thing we know, soccer is often unpredictable! If Coyotes are in final, then both finalists will be at Nationals, regardless of the result, because Coyotes have already qualified to be there representing National League.

Anonymous said...

A bit off topic, but I noticed that Eclipse is not competing in R2 Championships, as they lost in State Cup and didn't qualify through Regional League.

They qualified for Nationals through National League, but that team was predominantly rostered with their ECNL players. They must not have played those players in State Cup or regional leagues.

ECNL PLAYOFSS - Which teams have the best shot to go to Nationals.
Last year only 1 ecnl team from the Region made it to Nationals -FC Bucks. Can they do it again?

Lets dig deeper.
6 ECNL teams qualified for the Championship Flight this year where last year it was only 4 teams.
4 division winners from the conference and 2 wildcards.

Teams:
PDA - 1st
FC Bucks - 2nd
Stars - 3rd
East Meadow - 4th
Penn Fusion - 5th * WC
Matchfit - 6th * WC


Only 1 team from a bracket can make it to nationals.

PDA vs Atlanta Fire/Mustangs/MD United.
PDA matches up well against all these teams and although they haven't played the mustangs I believe they should make it through their bracket. Don't sleep on MD United as they have a ton of offense and can beat PDA if they sleep up in the back. I would bet its PDA then Mustangs then MD Maryland.

FC bucks vs NC Fusion/Real So Cal/Dallas Texans

For FC bucks to win this group which is pretty even IMO they will have to play stellar defense and score 2 goals per game. They have played Dallas Texans this year and tied them but it will be tough to get through them and Real so cal. My prediction. FC bucks then Dallas Texans then Real So Cal.

Stars of Mass vs CESA/SO CAL Blue/Real Colorado.

Although this bracket doesn't look to promising for Stars lets keep in mind they played Real Colorado the ECNL finalist last year in the playoffs. The experience should help. So Cal blues should also be a tough game for Stars but in the end I think Real Colorado wins the bracket.
Real Colorado then So Cal Blues then Stars.

East meadow vs Michigan Hawks/Dallas Sting/Concord Fire
East meadow played both the hawks and concorde in the playoffs last year and came up a little short. The big problem here is the Dallas Sting. I don't think EM has enough offense to compete in all 3 games. Dallas Stiing wins then Michigan then East Meadow.

Penn Fusion vs Birmingham/Eclipse/CrossFire
Penn Fusion has a weapon up top and can compete with most on any day. However this might be to much for them with the #1 overall team this year and the defending ecnl champs. Eclipse wins followed by crossfire then penn fusion.

Matchfit vs De Enza Force/Sporting Blue Valley/San Diego Surf.
Matchfit had a nice run for their first year in the ecnl but they are out classed with the 3 teams above. If they get a win Ill be surprised but if they get out of their bracket hats off to them. Surf is good as it gets on west coast and DeAnza moves the ball well. Surf to advance with DeAnza then Sporting BV.

Best of luck to the region 1 teams.
My predictions is PDA will advance and FC Bucks has an outside shot in a coin flip bracket.

Stallions already played NJ Rush since state final just last week in an NPL semi. Score was 3-1. Rush are a good team it's a tough draw. Dreadful field at the UNI of RI makes for a crap shoot. Anyone can win up their as it proved last year. If us youth soccer could organize their s&@t better people might take them more seriously!

USYS Nationals Draw is out:

Beadling
Tampa Bay United
Eclipse
Beach FC

Carlsbad
MRM Coyotes
FC United
Tennessee SC

Nationals also has semi-finals this year for those who don't know. Thoughts on these pools? I think it's an extremely tough pool for Beadling to be thrown into for their first trip to Nationals. Having the two first games against Eclipse and Beach FC is a monster of a draw.

Anonymous said...

They could have an edge with eclipse playing 4 games from 13th - 17th at the national ecnl championships. That a lot of games and a lot of flying with out much downtime.
I will give beach the edge in that bracket. I also like Carlsbad in the other bracket.
Coyotes don't seem to same dominate team of 2 years ago. Still a great team but seem to lack offense in the big games anymore.

Anonymous said...

As pointed out above, Nationals has semi-finals, so top 2 in each bracket move on to semis.

I would give edge to Beach/Eclipse and Carlsbad/Coyotes to make it through. However, in NL, Tampa came back and beat Carlsbad and Albion, so they are certainly capable. Remember Albion, 2012 ECNL national champion that switched to USYS? Beach was at Nationals in 2012 and found their way back and seemingly blew a tough RIV championship. Carlsbad was at Nationals last year and had good performance and 2x division winner of NL. Tennessee is 3x Southern Region Champion and like Coyotes, has been to 3 straight national championships. Coyotes beat them in final in 2012. Last year, Coyotes tied Eclipse in pts and had better goal diff. But because of 4 goal limit per game, was forced into pks which they lost to Eclipse to decide finalist. Eclipse won ECNL national championship and USYS nationals last year and is in ECNL finals again this yr as pointed out above. FC United was in NL two yrs ago so has experience with top competition. Agree that Beadling has tall task ahead and less experience. But both brackets equally tough as one would expect.

Question relating to post 2:00pm -
If 50 mile rule forbids players who are in high school and live more than 50 miles from the colleges campus from being trained or coached by that colleges coaches than that is a clear competitive advantage in recruiting for rutgers and an ncaa violation. But what about the competitive advantage gained by the PDA U15-U18 teams who had theses south jersey players on their rosters the last 14 years while theses rutgers coaches were on their coaching staffs?

Institution's Coach Observing Prospective Student-Athletes While Acting in Capacity for Local Sports Club (I)

Date Published: November 7, 2012

Editor's Note: This column was updated June 20, 2013, to add additional questions to assist with membership clarification.

NCAA Division I institutions should note, pursuant to the local sports club legislation, in sports other than basketball, an institution's coach may be involved in any capacity (e.g., as a participant, administrator or in instructional or coaching activities) in the same sport for a local sports club or organization located in the institution's home community, provided all prospective student-athletes participating in said activities are legal residents of the area (within a 50-mile radius of the institution).

Clearly 10 miles south from there(exit 88 on parkway) you would reach 50 miles from rutgers piscataway campus and soccer stadium at exit 88 on parkway, which is bricktown.Any players south of brick(even toms river is outside the 50 mile radius) who were coached or even trained by any rutgers coaches on pda teams in U15-U18 age groups over the last 14 years was in violation of ncaa 50 mile rule.

Exactly, according to above ncaa 50 mile rule quoted above from their website both pda club and rutgers univ womens soccer has repeatedly broken this rule for the last 14 years. This will certainly affect rutgers move to the big ten as this is not the cowboy big east with Calhoun at uconn, bod huggins at cinn and West Virginia, etc.
the big Ten has northwestern, Purdue, Michigan , etc. and these are among the top academic institutions in the country.
those big east coaches were so busy trying to stay out of trouble and covering their own that they didn't have much time to worry about what the other schools in the big east were doing.
that is not the case in the big ten and rutgers recent toubles and scandals in mens bball have caused the rutgers administration to take a hard look at situations in ALL their sports that could cause more embarrassment as they move to big ten this fall.
