It is evident what happens at the Galaxy table. PDA won't let me talk at a game, but I can yell at you here!! Daddy is spending $5,000 per year for you to play with this team and you lose? You have to play better because that girl you played against will take your spot when it matters... what a joke.
Another problem GotSoccer really needs to work out: with their recent decision to award 30 points for wins, they have actually given those points to teams that win over that juggernaut of a opponent ... "Bye". "Awards - 12 MonthsSeptember 2013 Match Win +30Opponent: BYEEvent: New Jersey State Cup [U11/12 8v8]"
That guys focus/obsession with galaxy borders creepy.
Does anyone find it ironic that several folks complain about Galaxy not playing enough times in public tournaments so folks can have a shot at them .... and 6:48am's post claiming the Galaxy coach is all about winning? Can't be about winning if you're not taking yourself to place to win in the first place.
I'm not a PDA parent, but I find some of these Galaxy comments ridiculous. Why is anyone concerned that their parents don't say anything on the sidelines? Would they rather hear some of the stupid things being shouted by some of the teams parents we have all encountered at some level? And any mention of rankings without including Galaxy is a joke.
This is probably that same NJX parent looking to bring down the best team in the state. NJX is a good team, but just cant get past Galaxy. Congrats on beating the B/C team in NOVA.
to 8:13 am: Did you ever consider maybe its an NJX parent or some other team Galaxy beat actually defending Galaxy (8:29 PM), and perhaps its a team that beat you at the end of the season banging their chests?
Who did Galaxy lose to? Surprised. They are a great team. Regardless, new season coming. Good luck to all!
Any early predictions on final 4 in NJ cup? Looks like it is going to be a great tournament.
Great. NJ Cup has 11v11 and 8v8. Now we have to pick a final 8. Good news, looks like most teams should be able to breeze through the first round.
Any idea if Manhattan Cup going to be played. In it's entirety?
Hey 2:15, there is know such thing as a breeze in the first round! We may not win,but they will be limping off the field,trying to play in the second round. Oh by the way,your welcome for that!!!!!!!
Know = noYour = you'reCompelled to translate for the literate and educated.
Must have been the case of beer me and my eleven year old daughter was drinking,thanks for correcting me.
Hey 4:55. I am sure that the 2:15 poster was talking about the fact that only a handful of teams are playing in the first round and the rest have a bye round. (idiot) and secondly..really? limping off the field? I feel bad for your daughter...can't beat them, hurt them is not a way to go through life brother.
We will soften them up, just like a piece of tuff veal after you beat the piss out of it, so all can enjoy!
Top 5:1. NJX2. PDA Nova3. PDA Galaxy4. Hamilton5. Jackson
Agreed 10:19. Think Hamilton and Jackson are a toss up for 4th, but neither are ready to jump Galaxy just yet. Maybe this Spring. I am interested to see if PDA Nova can be consistent vs. new competition this Spring in EDP.
With all of this snow they are going to have to cancel the spring challenge this weekend. Early march tournaments in NJ are not a smart thing
Hamilton and Jackson in top 5? Really?
Who would replace Hamilton and Jackson?
Any of the following are better than those twoSJ EliteSDFCSTATSFMaximusRAGE
That is laughable.
Jackson has consistently performed at a high level. Not on that team, but anyone who doesn't think so hasn't been watching. And they were the "town" team that beat Galaxy that everyone was so curious about. They can beat anyone. Fast, strong and intense.All the teams listed in 4:48's post are strong teams too and any of these teams can beat each other on any given day. Too soon to call a top 5 or even a top 10. The spring will show a lot. Bet that there will be a lot of shifts as the girls have had a season to adapt to the larger field for those playing 11v11.
I always scratch my head when I see these lists. "NJX 1st place" over Galaxy, despite Galaxy beating them 2-0 in the most recent tournament either played ... "Any of the following are better" despite Hamilton beating RAGE 3-1 and TSF 2-0 in the Fall ... - EE
So then Jackson should be #1...
Don't you people see the game being played? They list the top 5, listing NJX as 1st, then all season they will point back to their own post saying how NJX declared themselves to be the best. They also list Nova ahead of Galaxy. I suspect the person posting is the Lyon parent from last season, but that's pure speculation. I'd like to see someone list a top 10 in no particular order, so then maybe people can give an honest opinion. I'm not going to try since I have no idea of all the head to head scores others on here have cited.
Ranking at this age level is difficult with the landscape of leagues and tournaments adopting 8v8 and 11v11. You have strong 8v8 and 11v11 teams that never see each other or do not play enough games against each other to determine who is better. Teams can change drastically due to this format change. VA, PA, NC play 8v8 to U12 resulting to more touches and better individual development so grouping should be seperate on who plays 8v8 and 11v11.
In no particular order these are the teams that I think are vying for top ten status. By the end of the spring season and through the fall we'll have a better idea for how best to slot them in the top 10. For now, best to just create an unranked top 10 and see how things play out going forward. GalaxyNovaJacksonHamilton - NJ RushRage SJEBNJXSDFCSTA MorrisTSFFC MaximusFunny, I created the list above BEFORE looking at Gotsoccer to see if I forgot any obvious choices and the lists were pretty similar - not taking into account who belongs where in the list.
Between Gotsoccer and this website it should be pretty easy to develop a "watchlist" for top 10.http://usyouthsoccerrankings.com/
Except that http://usyouthsoccerrankings.com/lists the two PDA teams (Galaxy and Crew) under U12, not U11.- EE
That's because they've been playing a lot of games up at U12. It'll get more accurate as time passes and teams start playing all 11v11 games and age appropriately. I know some of the older age groups quite well and I was surprised by how much more accurate that site was than Gotsoccer. In any event neither site is completely accurate.
Those youthsoccerrankings need to be fixed .... unless you can explain why PDA Storm is ranked nationally at 37 AND 68!
never said they were perfect just another source that seems relatively useful at least when compared to the gotsoccer source and personal opinions
This is another rankings website which has proven itself to me to be very inaccurate over the years. It's based solely on the opinion of "experts" and I use the term loosely. It's 100% opinion based. http://www.nationalsoccerranking.com/index.htmAt least Gotsoccer and US Youth Soccer Rankings have a statistical methodology. National Soccer Ranking is no more or less accurate than the opinions put forth here.
Here is my accurate opinion, nobody wants to read your rankings gibberish. NJX is #1
#1? Didn't they lose to a u 10 team last year? Remember there is always some one out there better than you.
Once again someone trying to post as an NJX parent declaring to be #1. I hope everyone is smart enough to see its most likely from someone whose daughter couldn't make the team, or even more likely from the same Lyon parent, who shortly thereafter responded to her own post to make sure everyone knows Lyon beat them.

Rankings at U11 are a joke and unnecessary. It doesn't matter who beats who on any given day. I think everyone on this board would agree that NJ has some of the best girls soccer talent in the country. Player Development is all that matters at this age.
I would like to know more about making money online without any work. I would never believe it but it must be true if it made the blog!
Anyone know field conditions in Hammonton for this weekend's Spring Challenge. I heard they were still snow covered? Anyone from down there have some input on field conditions?
my friend lives in hammonton and he says the snow is just about gone. a little rain tomorrow and the rest will be gone. I dont think they care about field conditions, as long as there is no snow. Too much money at stake
Ok, thanks for the info.
