U12 Girls Youth Soccer in Region 1


These young women have a year of 11 v. 11 under their belts and are ready to show what they can do. Across the 12 states of U.S. Youth Soccer Region 1, there are some impressive club teams who are a lot of fun to watch.

I'm waiting for someone to inevitably make fun of 8v8 SC anytime now.... reasons could be they don't have the $$ to pay 11v11 or that "academies" don't play 8v8 as it's not as good for their development as 11v11.

Now that's done, agree with the 7:56am and 8:23am assessments. Can't see any upsets this weekend given the games.

SJEB over Cherry Hill
NJX over PDA C team
NJ Rush over PDA B team
Haddonfield over JPS-who knows?!

What happened to PDA Galaxy?

Does anyone know, which League Maximus plays out of?

Anonymous said...

Galaxy chose not to do State Cup, my guess is they didn't want to risk not winning it... but that's only for the coach to know and us to guess!

Maximus plays EDP 8v8

sjeb is out, sdfc over cherry hill

PDA Galaxy doesn't need to do NJ Youth Carded State Cup no point for them to waste there time to NJ Card players for a few state cup games.

US Club state cup in spring will be more impressive and more likely everyone in this age group will be playing 11v11 state cup.

Plus it eliminates many of the town travel teams that really cannot compete at a high level.

I think also think the EDP Open Cup will eventually overwrite state fall and spring state cup's.

Question -

So the NJ State Cup is in 2 leagues - NJYSA & US Club?

DO they both have a Spring & Fall State Cup? Or does US CLub have it in Spring and NJYSA have it in the Fall?

I assume the US Club is better and tougher to compete

Anonymous said...

1036 - Correct: NJYSA is Fall's NJ State Cup / US Club is Spring's NJ State Cup.

Personally State Cup should be a 10month process Fall into Spring, with double elimination. What's the point of having 2 state cups for teams to GS points in(Fall/Spring)?

The girls are carded for a team year round so there shouldn't be no drastic roster changes occuring mid season.

NJ should adopt 1 annual State Cup with double elimination. Clubs can either be carded NJYSA or US CLub.

It's ridiculous clubs are spending money carding players NJYSA in the Fall for 1 to 4 games. Thus the reason why PDA Galaxy is not in the Fall state cup.

Anonymous said...

Nonsense response 9:35am. PDA Galaxy doesn't "need" to do NJYS State Cup. How big headed can you get, you act like you'll automatically win it by entering it. It's been shown that this PDA group is beatable by many teams. Any given day as they say.

NJYS State Cup has been around for years, US Club NJ Cup is fairly new. For this age it's NJYS in Fall and US Club in Spring. For 15s and above they run both in the Spring. Competition level varies year to year.

Anonymous said...

I agree that clubs do not want to deal with the extra work associated with carding through NJYS which remains an archaic process. The US Clubs carding process is so much simpler. I am sure that this affects which teams participate in fall State Cup, the turn out was certainly light this fall.

Anonymous said...

1134 - It wasn't meant that PDA Galaxy is big headed, it more relates to the process of carding players under NJYSA to compete for 1-2 competitive games.

Rather just set up 3-4 scrimmages vs. other PDA or top squads. Save the parents travel time and the unknown factor of when is the next game and where.

Agree about people should stop talking about people's socio-economic status. It's uncalled for. Some people didn't and don't have the privileges as others growing up. And true about no one knows about people's current situations. Remember, it's about the children.



US Club/USYS (NJYS), just different soccer bodies all aiming at soccer development. Any club/team can do both cups--one is not 'stronger' than the other. One does it in the Spring other in the Fall. Competition level just all depends on the teams deciding to participate in either cup. As for Galaxy, remember they are going to be ECNL. They are not even allowed to participate eventually in the state cups. No ECNL teams are allowed...and that goes for all ECNL teams in every state. Look at the state cup now, it's kind of watered down. Just a few decently good teams which will slowly start to water down as well probably.

Anonymous said...

That's really funny. If I recall PDA Galaxy only lost 1-0 to NJX Sol in state cup last year and it was a goalie mistake.

Anonymous said...

I'm sure Galaxy played better soccer. Can't always pay attention to the score. Anyway, in two years, a lot can change. I'm sure other top quality players will be swarming to Galaxy. And the current players just getting stronger with PDA's training curriculum within their club.

Anonymous said...

So nix is the state cup winner ? And what are you referring to anyway, I see no mention of galaxy and nix being mentioned. Nix needs to just stay away from board, always bringing bad attention to themselves. Maybe I'm wrong and missed something here, but I never recall nix winning state cup. Maybe they won Jeff cup, delco, PDA, and stars cup and I missed that too?

Who is nix? And why does he need to do anything?

Sdfc would have posted from the parking lot if they won - but they lost. I'm shocked - I thought they were the best team in state by long shot. Looks like nix or njx barely got by PDA.

Anonymous said...

But they won. Congrats NJX!

Anonymous said...

NJX and SDFC are both over the top with their bosting and posting. To much talk usually backfires...As seen today by SDFC. Why did NJX make a false claim about beating PDA in spring state cup? Pretty sure the galaxy team from pda won the 11v11 bracket.

Anonymous said...

I don't see SDFC or NJX "bosting" at all. And I doubt NJX would make a false claim. Maybe you simpletons can finely realize that trolls make claims to be from a team and say dumb things in an attempt to make those teams look bad. The inaccuracy of their posts should illustrate that. I really wish they would either make this blog require registration or an IQ test.

Anonymous said...

Well any simpleton can google NJ Cup 2014 and see Galaxy beat NJX Sol 1-0 in the final. Galaxy indeed won the game.

As for today NJX beat PDA Crew and not Galaxy.

Anonymous said...

If you go back to a post it was stated that Galaxy thinks it's a waste of time to be in State Cup. That's why it was posted about the NJX/Galaxy game.. They are not blowing anyone away!

Anonymous said...

So someone pretends to speak for Galaxy that State Cup is a waste, so the lemmings attack Galaxy for claiming this. Then "SDFC and nix (?) are ripped for "bosting". The Real Dummies of New Jersey Soccer saga continues.

This blog is just so entertaining. Anything can be said by anyone and not really knowing where their from. I bet you there are no Galaxy parents on this blog and all this talk is being said about their team. I don't think certain coaches allow it.

That's why it's called a blog

A sincere congratulations goes out to Haddonfield, NJ Rush/Hamilton, Holmdel FC NJX, and Cherry Hill. The good news is, your girls will experience an exciting soccer memory that will last a life time. The bad news, your team, your parents, possibly your coaches and club as a whole will be criticized and mocked ad nauseum for the next 2 weeks (or longer) on this wonderful blog by its upstanding "adult" contributors.

Good luck to all the teams in the Semis!

I can see NJX, RUSH, and CH being in the Semi's but people let's get real Haddonfield had a great draw to get there.

Hopefully NJ get's it right going forward and has the Top rankings teams playing bottom ranking teams in the 1st round and so on. NCAA Basketball Bracker style!

Yes congrats to all the NJ Semi-final teams.

Anonymous said...

Why is it that the NJYS state cup didn't have all it's top teams? Do you think some clubs are trying to get away from NJYS and just focus their first teams with training and US Club soccer's top leagues?

2:35am. Name me 1 other top team besides PDA who didn't enter NJYS State Cup? They were the only one who didn't enter from what i saw

They didn't enter but, heard they used some girls from their A team to play in he quarter finals.

Didn't help based on the results

Did anyone warn Sol yet their players should wear Kevlar body armor this weekend?

Anonymous said...

9:03am I do not think PDA Galaxy and Nova went out of there way to NJYS Card girls on from there teams to play on PDA Crew and PDA Shore. Stop feeding wrong information.

Remember teams had to lock rosters up for State Cup in the beginning. Cannot add players throughout the games.

Anonymous said...

Maximus vs Rage Renegades will be a nice Final Sunday.

I know most say Rage Ren r the best or 2nd best in state.

Anonymous said...

Not hard to be top 2 in state with so few clubs playing 8v8. Heck all 8v8 clubs can claim their U12 team is Top 10 because they are!

Anonymous said...

So you're saying if Maximus or Renegades played 11v11 right now they wouldn't be a top 10 team in state? Just wanna make sure I got this right

Anonymous said...

9:03 you need to check your info because there were girls there from the A team. One was the goalie. No biggie just saying.

Anonymous said...

Not only does sol need armor they also need ear plugs so they don't here Cherry Hills parents with there foul mouths.

Anonymous said...

don't know who's saying rage renegades are best or 2nd best in state who have they played in the last 2 years?????? just wait till they go 11V11, they'll be mediocre at best

Anonymous said...

I didnt post anything about 8 x 8, but I think its impossible to figure where any of the 8 x 8 would rank. How can one argue one way or the other?

Anonymous said...

Oh stop the madness, GS or any type of rankings does not justify any team in this age level.

Any team can be beaten at the top levels and as for those top 8v8 teams we will not know how well off they are until they go 11v11, so you cannot compare them yet.

If you really want to talk and have conversations 8v8 and 11v11 teams should be spoken off differently.

Anonymous said...

I think all of the few top teams that Jersey has need to really expand who they're playing. How is it benefitting them playing weaker teams? They should probably keep league games to a minimum and just pick and choose who they play, even if they need to play up along with just sticking to the more training/less games method.

1:54 you need to check your information. Yes there were girls there from Galaxy, but to watch, not play. The goalie is carded for both teams.

Anonymous said...

Is it common for the ECNL clubs to card girls for more than 1 team? I have no idea. Is the goalie the only girl Crew carded for State Cup?

Anonymous said...

Any club can put players on more than one team roster as long as they are carded with that club. Edp and the cup allow it. And the rosters for cup are locked once the championship draw is announced.

IGFA has players rostered on more than one roster.

At least PDA uses appropriately carded players. Can't say that about other clubs in the area.

Anonymous said...

What club doesn't use appropriate carded players?

Anonymous said...

If you ask me the rules on the NJYS site are a little vague about being able to move players between teams on the same club - though I do agree that it says that roster are frozen at the time of the championship draw.

But lets be frank, if any players from PDA A played, then thats not the 'Crew'. Its just PDA trying to make all its teams look as strong as they can...

Someone should check Cherry Hill's cards this weekend, they have been known to use guests for State Cup play.

Forget checking the cards for the players, check the parents IDs to see if there are any escaped convicts.

@3:09 - You need to log off and concentrate on your school work. Based on your blog entry you spelling and grammar are horrendous .

Oh congrats to Cherry Hill, ignore all the haters on the board I’m glad to see a regular town travel program succeed. Same goes for Haddonfield.

Aah yes. A Cherry Hill parent. Please tell us are you playing your original roster or guest players?

@3:29 - Keep assuming. Oh CH will have guess players they flew them in from other states like CA and Texas. Even one player from Brazil.

I miss Jackson!

Anonymous said...

I think that would be awesome if my daughter could play against a team with players on the roster from other states. If they're more challenging, then better for soccer developing and a better soccer game!! =P Can NJ teams only card players that live in NJ for NJYS State Cup?



And I miss Jackson too! Jackson and NJ Rush Hamilton are close in terms off location. Their coaches should have got together and combined their top players, who are the most skilled overall, and just become one big SUPERTEAM. Then continue with the rest of the players on a '2nd team' at the top level as well, and continue to get them even better, with rotating practice locations for both teams, but under the RUSH name.

Anonymous said...

Cherry hill should be embarrassed to be in the final, such a dirty fouling team. One girl out with concussion from NJX and one CH girl clearly elbowed another NJX player in the face but ref only gave a yellow.

They have no skills or passes just pushing and kicking.

Good luck Hamilton Rush in the final, so much the better team.

Stop crying you are embarrassing your self.

Anyone who watched the CH / Holmdel game knows that the concussion had nothing to do with any CH player. An unfortunate accident completely unprovoked. Congrats to both teams and good luck tomorrow!

The elbow to the face was an accident too right? Embarrassing.

You are obviously a Holmdel parent and completely biased - posting before scores are even posted makes it clear. Both teams fought hard, why can't you just leave it at that?

Anonymous said...

Feeling bad for NJ Rush. I think they were hoping to play against NJX. CH is a dirty playing team and they have had t.o deal with that team since their younger years in South Jersey soccer. But the real question is, Who is this Haddonfield team?! Playing just about equal to NJ Rush (an apparent TOP team)? Props to them. I guess that answers parents questions about rankings. Don't pay attention to rankings! Do what's BEST for your child's development of the game.

Does anyone think they will?

Congrats NJ RUSH well deserved. 11v11 is wide open couple of weeks ago SDFC was on a role now NJ RUSH. Nice to see the competition in NJ.

Anonymous said...

US CLub had a 8v8 last Spring for U12G, why wouldn't they have it this upcoming Spring? I believe STA won it.

Regardless, the U13 Fall-2015 will be that much more competitive with some teams like Rage and Maximus coming over to the 11v11 side.

Anonymous said...

Yes and STA U13 are doing well right now even though they stayed 8v8 through u12.

Anonymous said...

Exactly..it probably helped them in the long run..always good to get better in short space. There is plenty of soccer ahead at the 11v11 level.

Not saying 11v11 is bad at u12 because it isn't but 8v8 certainly isn't either.

Anonymous said...

What are you guys talking about STA U13 is still hiding. All those GS points are from 8v8.

Look it up they didn't even enter this Fall's NJ State Cup u13 they were in the National Championship Series u13 and didn't even make it to the finals so hiding from the strong teams didn't help much.

Does anyone know if NJ Rush continues play in the region? I don't know how it works.

1:26pm. What are you talking about? STA 13s made Semi Final and lost to NJ Wildcats who ended up winning SC.

Anonymous said...

U13's had two Brackets, two differennt scenerios.

National Championship Series - NJ Wildcats vs. NJ Crush

NJ State Cup - NJ RUSH vs Medford SC

My opinion there should onlt be one State Cup winner at U13 & U14. What's the point of doing two different scenerios.

Anonymous said...

Agreed 2:37pm. National Championship Series is the one that takes you to Regionals. NJ State Cup is geared towards teams who aren't good enough to compete regionally. Seems pointless to me but that's NJYS for you

Anonymous said...

It kind of is a money grabber, because winning njys state championship series at U12 is mandatory for teams to have to travel to regionals. and even for finalists...if you don't go the team gets fined $3000.00 dollars. And if they win, then they go nowhere at this age group. It doesn't matter until they're older because girls are still developing at this age and everything changes in the next couple years. You'll see.

Anonymous said...

Where do see a team get's fined $3000. Please provide back up.

Anonymous said...

http://www.njyouthsoccer.com/clubsite/?p=4815

(#4: A fine of up to $3000.00 will be imposed on any team withdrawing from regional competition. For questions regarding regional competition, contact the NJYS office or Games Commissioner.)

In their Q/A Section:

Q. We won the NJYS National Championship for our age group. Do we have to go to Regionals
A. NJYS expects its championship teams to go to Regionals. If, for unforeseen reason you cannot go, you must inform the NJYS Games Commissioner as soon as possible. There are significant fines if you withdraw late. There is a lot of information your team must put online to be able to participate in Regionals. Make sure you meet the deadlines published by the Region

It also states: NJYS Championship winners (and selected 2nd teams) in the appropriate age groups are required to participate in the Regional and National Championships. The selected 2nd teams are based on the award of wildcard entries by the Region I Championship Committee or the Region I Premier League Competition.

U12 and U13 don't advance past regionals. They don't advance to Nationals until starting at age U14. So anyway, looks like Cherry Hill could have a chance to go..haha.

I don't see a regional bracket where the champion and finalist played neighboring states in a regional bracket.

Again what you see and what is said can defer.
