U17G / U17 Girls youth soccer in Region 1

Very competitive, highly talented and looking ahead to college play possibilities.

These young women have played competitive soccer for 10 years or more. It's make it or break it time.

Go for it.

I like to congratulate Beadling on their region 1 championships with a 1-0 victory over the coyotes.

Best of luck to PDA/beadling/coyotes on making it to nationals. Represent region 1 well.

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.

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.

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.

BACK 2 BACK ECNL CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR ECLIPSE!
ON THEIR WAY TO YOUTHSOCCER TO DEFEND THAT TITLE AS WELL!

No way eclipse wins youth soccer championship.
Number 10 who is women's nationL team and number 34 who is national pool player isn't on the roster.

They should have enough to come in top 2 in their bracket and make playoffs but they will lose in semis to Carlsbad.


It will be all CA championship


Carlsbad vs beach


Best of luck coyotes.

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?

9:01pm -Here is the NCAA 50 rule from the NCAA website:

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

Date Published: November 7, 2012
Item Ref: 1
Educational Column:

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).

Very Clear.

internet says 40.2 miles from piscataway to end of route 18 south at wall(you can pick up parkway there at exit 98 or get onto 195 west).
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.

Sounds like 1 bitter parent who will be joining what their 8 team in 10years? Leave the coach and the situation alone you physco path. Go back to pa!

Watch, the new Rutgers coach will resign from DOC at PDA and also as PDA coach of high school aged teams. All related.
Either:
1- PDA must stop employing rutgers coaches as PDA coaches/trainers .

or

2 - PDA must stop rostering players who live more than 50 miles from rutgers institution(players who live south of Brick).

In addition to not being allowed to coach or train them,College coaches cannot even speak to players or parents of high school age players until their senior year of hs.

Pa parent blames every coach for his daughter not playing. No that she is not playing up to speed. She has gone down because of her parents pointing the finger at everyone else. Even switched his daughters hs and still doesn't play. Delusional.

I know this "PA person" you are talking about and you do not have a clue. Stop posting anonymously. If you have something personal against them speak openly to them you coward. She is a super sweet kid and will really be missed. the "psycho" you are talking about is a parent who puts his daughter and her happiness above all else. He could probably buy and sell you 10 times over and could care less about any college scholarship. Just wants his daughter happy. Maybe you should get off this forum and spend a little more time with your daughter. Season is over. Get a life!

Ok annoymous a.d. you can buy and sell is exactly the attitude. Gave yourself away. You think you can buy her playing time but did not work. You are so impressed with money flaunting it and You frown on people who make less or kids you feel are not as smart as yours. Not true. Money does not make a difference only in your mind. Doesnt impress anyone only makes you look pathetic. Your daughter is a nice kid. But you ruined her. There are smarter more athletic kids on that team. Sorry you couldnt buy that for her. Btw more parents on that team could buy and sell you 10 times over. You wouldnt know they dont flaunt it. And they dont talk about how their kid is smarter than yours. Thats when you know. $ take that to the bank and dont let the door hit you on the way out

like I said before, she is a super sweet kid that will be missed. I am sorry that you will be on the sidelines next year watching my kid disguised as a supportive parent.

Where does he take her now....???

Penn fusion ... Nope been there ruined that.
Fcbucks ... Nope been there ruined that.
Njsa.... Nope doesn't exist
PDA .... Npl/ecnl done both numerous times and ruined that.

Sounds like delco or move your kid for her last two eat of high school to eclipse since they won national title a few times and you seem to like to hop on that bandwagon.

Seeking wisdom from my elders.

My daughter is a freshman in HS. Her club team is going to be doing a lot of showcases starting soon. I wanted to get a realistic idea on what type of offers she can expect to receive. I thought this would be a good age group to ask. Her skill level is slightly below that of an ECNL starting 11 type of player and plays on a team of this caliber. She is an excellent student with a high level curriculum.

What happened to the Coyotes ?
Players leaving in drones. Coach looking for College job, but can't find one and back with team. Where did they go?
After all the Bethesda bashing through the years, looks like ECNL is where to launch into college. How many girls from that National Championship team at U-14(13 YEARS OLD) are still there. Hmm...

Don't know, but remember that same team played in National Championships at U15 and U16, won Nat'l League at U15, 2nd place at U16.
