841 Depends we plan on keeping her with an 03 group as my daughter will only be in 8th next year but worry about the quality of play and players.
Since Montclair United is part of Matchfit. Do you think they'll ever play ECNL out of Montclair (North) area?
914 After reading the older blogs it seems the next ECNL club to get it with be NJCSA as they also have boys DA out of the North. So PDA, Matchfit, NJCSA will be the 3 ECNL clubs in NJ. NEFC will be the next for NY, and PA Classics for PA. That is the rumor in many blogs.
NEFC is in MA not NY. There is also talk of a girls DA being started by US Soccer to rival (and eventually overcome) the ECNL by US Club Soccer. If that's the case then certainly you'll see the downfall of the ECNL.As for NJCSA getting into ECNL, money talks as that club has not got a single talented team on the girls side. A real shame when other Clubs are developing players and have strong teams throughout who deserve to be in ECNL.
None of the parents seem worried on my child's team. We'll just stick together with majority being 2002 girls. If at all, maybe add 1 player, if anyone that comes at to our next tryouts could mesh with the talent/level of our current girls.
NJCSA is backed by Cedar Stars and they have a lot of money. U.S. Soccer wont spend the time and money for a girls USSF DA as many DA's are for free and backed by either MLS affiliation or Big Club's like PDA and if that is that case they will follow the boys clubs that are under US Soccer DA and will cut out clubs like Penn Fusion, World Class, East Meadow Etc. USDA Clubs: http://ussda.demosphere.com/ It is ironic how many of the USDA are ECNL clubs as well so maybe there is some truth to that rumor.
Not liking the NPL idea. Played better competition in other leagues where you moved up and played top teams that won in competing brackets/divisions. Now, a club just buys a license, and boom, they are in the league. So instead of our team moving up and playing teams that play the style that our team plays, we our playing teams that need to play catch-up. Would much rather stick to playing against the teams that already play how our girls play. Especially when you have to travel so far to play against a team who is the club's B level team.
@ 10:50 am......Cedar stars has one of the better U10G teams in North/Central jersey. Don't just spew info that you don't know about.
1207 I know what you mean, I don't get the segregation of these leagues ECNL, NPL etc. Best teams should play the best team’s bottom line. I hate the fact we have to wait until a tournament to see the best teams. It's 50/50 right now we dominate one game or game is played evenly matched. Can someone explain to me why US Club approved to NPL leagues in the same area - Northeast-NPL and EDP-NPL to me if you combined the best teams from both leagues that will ultimately be the best teams and probably be better than majority of the ECNL teams in that league
