Which team is bragging? Just a lot of complaining.
NJX was bragging last year. Sounds like their empire has crumbled.
Somebody's always got something bad to say about NJX. Give it a rest.
Did they really get beat 9 to 0?
Jealousy is what it is. Some people aren't thinking about there 11 year olds being scouted!! Fools.....
Jealous of a 9 0 loss? I think you meant to write THEIR 11 year olds - look who is a fool now?
Has anyone heard of Monmouth United yet?
@6:56 No - why should we have? Just trolling for attention I think..
Monmouth United is the old St. Mary's Travel team(s). The St. Mary's program was started by some unhappy Middletown parents/coaches a few years ago. I think they changed to Monmouth United because the new pastor at St. Mary's didn't want to deal with travel soccer. I'm not sure what league they play in, or if their u12 team is highly competitive or not, but I believe the girls on the team are happy.

help a confused parent out. why would a NJ team (STA) move from EDP (which if I understand correctly is part of the NPL??) to, the NYSC league of NPL? Better teams to play? I've managed to figure out that there is a league for the few teams going ECNL at some point, but this one puzzles me. Thanks.
To 1220: Not sure if STA asked to be moved or the MSSL which run's the NPL/EDP league in the area moved them based on logistics. They could possibly be playing both leagues is what some teams do as well as you can see on NYSC schedule there are teams that are from NJ. There is no rules in the NPL league a team can play in 2 leagues.
@6:56 Give it a rest already!
STA makes no sense. Playing mediocre teams in NYSC NPL. Perhaps to get in more games, more play minutes, more gotsoccer points? Who cares?
@12:20 I show STA in the Spring 2015 EDP league
@226 they are (also) def in the ny league that Isee on npl website, ny league, playing a bunch of Long Island teams. I was just wondering if those are higher quality teams/games. If not that drive sucks. I would rather drive in nj or to PA any day.
12:20pm. Why not email the club and ask?
Because I thought you guys knew everything
So you'd rather an anonymous poster give you information than get it straight from the horses mouth in half the time?
Sounds like a troll to me
Does anyone know if Monmouth United added any players, change goal tenders, if girls left to go to other clubs? Did they change coaches?
Hit some kind of nerve with you , did I? You're way over invested in my posts. I really appreciate that. I feel all warm and fuzzy now.
Who are you referring to?
Stop with the Monmouth United Trolling, if you want answers go to the club's website to look for information or contacts. We know those questions are a direct result of trying to market the club since there is no U12 girls team. If not you would be asking other age group blogs. So enough questions with the Monmouth United Club. No one cares on this blog. Now for a real question do you guys think if leagues should start making a Spring/Summer league with 10 + 2 or 3 crossover games with the majority of clubs rolling as a summer team these days enough many clubs could eliminate bogus summer tryouts. Leagues would be Spring/Summer Season (Mid-March to June)the whole month of July would be the off month and start up August for Fall(Mid-Aug to Nov). Dec. would be a month off followed by Jan/Feb Futsal or indoor season.
Then you'd be taking away from all those 'select' teams that can grab your money during the summer off-season.EDP already has a spring league and they will be featuring a summer league.Be patient.
Good concept but it would take additional business funds to clubs since summer select generates extra revenue for all those so called non-profit clubs. lolEDP Summer league sounds interesting rather play 1 game every weekend or bi-weekly during the summer vs. 4 games in each tournament a team registers for in the blistering heat.
formal summer leagues surefire way to burn out the kids and have them hate the sport. flipflops, swimming pool, for most of june and part of july and then get back at it. otherwise its a 12 month program and as much as they love it, they'll hate it.
Agree at Minimum kids at this age need a full month away 2X a year. A couple of summer tourneys is fun and you can do that and be done pretty early in July. Most teams also break from Thanksgiving to after New Years.
Monmouth United is a joke. The president is a complete jackass and will run the program into the ground. How can you call yourself Monmouth United when in reality you are trying to divide Middletown? Monmouth United is rec ball.
Summer is all about playing for fun. That's when those stupid "Twisters" teams start showing up playing against our Summer Select kids. It's not fun to get thrashed by a hand-picked group of technically skilled players that make a mockery out of the Summer Select process.
12:21 There are 3 types of teams that play in summer tournaments.1. Full time year teams - it's the normal Fall/Spring teams for a club + 1 or 2 guess players.2. Summer Select Kids - Yes a group of hand-picked technically skilled players as you can see the word "Select". 3. Bottom/Less talented kids grouped together that did not make a full time or Summer Select Team, but parents look at it as development. If kids are not doing anything in the summer like(Softball, swimming, etc.) it's great to keep in shape in the off season. Just like Futsal is in the winter.
I believe 12:21 was referring to that 'other' team beating up on the Select team. Those Select teams have parents paying a nice chunk of change for 'training'. When another team mops the floor with them, those parents then wonder where their money is going.
Then that's up to the club to position there summer select team properly in a tournament and many trainers know better to place them in top brackets vs. full time teams that have been playing together longer vs. a summer select team that has been slapped together for 1 month. Remember summer select is also part of a recruiting process for a full time team. The parents should not be concerned where their money is going vs. reviewing how their child is developing on the summer select program they chose. If they are concerned then there regular season team should done something for the summer to save money vs. parents go here and there.
