U14G / U14 Girls Youth Soccer

U14G  / U14 Girls youth soccer seems to offer the most teams and the widest diversity of talent.

Where these players will end up is anyone guess.

Welcome to the ride.

8:57 Weren't you the same idiot that was ripping Fredrick before Jeff Cup? Suggesting that they should at least two brackets lower? If your going to pat yourself on the back, make sure you slap your forehead real hard too.

9:34 I'm the idiot that ripping FC Frederick not 8:57 and I already slapped myself on this board read back a little pal on 10:17 3/21 "FC Frederick shut me up though for making the final of a flight I said they didn't belong in"

I guess this board is going to get ugly until FC Delco...not allowed to talk state cup so let's watch the NJ and NY insults fly

What's the fascination with Boca calling out PDA shore all the time...relax people you beat the D team of PDA. Move on, from what I see there is only 1 relevant player on that Bocca team and its the coaches daughter. Let it go, you didn't even win the 9th flight at Jeff Cup. Go back into obscurity!

Anonymous said...

That is not cool calling out pda shore, they just lost their coach as well at pda shore, not a good situation. They had heck of a time in their matches over the weekend obviously. They have to rebuild and everything is changing in summer/fall for them anyway. Boca has a few good players and of course 9th flight is no great feat. But they have beaten many of the teams in the flights above them in other tournament play and league play. We will see this spring, just started. Remember Boca is local for all these girls and relatively inexpensive to play high level soccer.

9th flight at Jeff Cup is still Jeff Cup

MatchFit tryouts ad on their site lists current DOC as head coach of 5 ECNL birth year teams and 3 EDP development teams for next fall. Also most of those are with same assistant coach JR.
Can that be accurate? How is that possible with league games and tournament games overlapping and at different locations on same days and weekends? How can the same 2 coaches train 8 teams 2x per week? Are they going to be able to deliver what they are advertising?

I know you guys have all been waiting for this, stop denying it.

NYCSL NPL playoffs will be top (2) teams from each division, top teams play second place of opposite division.

Most of Toms River(PDA shore)top players now play at match fit and PDA. I thought these kids from Toms River didn't have any skill. Do you remember the score the last time you played them?

Anonymous said...

If 3:52 is correct it would almost certainly have to be STA, Crush from the west and 2 of the following 3 from the east: ISA, Massapequa, Manhattan. Looks like NYSC and the other teams can't mathematically do it unless one of the top teams loses every game they play this spring.

Soccer Nut,

I have thinking about your observations about my daughters team, and you are spot-on, as always. Without giving away the farm, we do struggle in the final third, as our score-lines would indicate. The coach is new, but the coach is the DOC on the girls side, and he is tough on them, but not in a nasty way, he wants them to be successful, as we all do, but he cannot play for them. The club is much more successful on the boys side, because the boys are better technically at this point than the girls, and with our style, everyone has to have the following: a great first touch, even with bouncing balls, and balls with pace, great field vision, and courage on the ball, which most girls still lack. However, the one element that I think we still need to improve on more than anything else is mental errors. Most 13 year old girls make multiple mistakes during a game, but its the players that learn from their past mistakes, and minimize reoccurrence, that we are still a work-in-progress.

Thanks for your thoughts.

4:07, hahaha, you trying to goad me into saying something stupid, I shall defer. We are 5 points out of a playoff spot, we play all 3 of the teams ahead of us, so we are not out-of-it, but your math makes me wonder if you can even spell math.

By summer they may be the only two coaches left on the girls side. Who knows how they expect to handle it.

Call or e-mail them, find out who is coaching the team that interests you.

At this age they are offering looks during practice sessions - prior to their official try out.

HUNGER, 4:11

In offensive third you need player(s) that are dying to score goals.

Too often I see the ball given up when it could be kept or a player going in way late for a ball rightfully theirs - and players unwilling to take on a defender.

This is with a good many teams.

Can you get in their heads with this?

Yeah, I think so, over time. But much of it is natural. And frankly this type of NEEDED player is so often labeled "selfish" - sadly so.

Anonymous said...

I agree, you need a player that calls for the ball, wants the ball, and will go through players to achieve her mission, its one of these break glass in case of war types.

Mass exit for players and coaches by end of season. I believe 2 already left mid season.

These coaches have a hard time attending their current training sessions and games. Next year will be a joke

Good luck to the remaining players

Only selfish if she doesn't score.She should have as many assists and goals and be smart enough to know when dump off or drop it back.way too often I see a ctr mid wide open and Stryker trying to fight thru 3 defenders.

Anonymous said...

4:26 what happens if you have to many hungry players? I have seen players take a shot every time they get the ball, the ball doesn't move shots go flying everywhere but on target. That comes from the parents telling the kid you have to be hungry because almost every time there was another pass to be made to an open player that wasn't made. Soccer is a team sport and if the player has the shot by all means take it - but they also need to know if the goalie has taken away the angle pass the ball, but they never do. Labeled as Selfish you say? Yes that's what I would call them.

@10:18 I am not the same poster as 7:48.

But it's never a good thing when a parent coaches their own kid. And at a high level.

Usually the coach's kid is a solid mid-level player and gets to play center-mid, and center-forward the entire game. Almost always better players play out of position, or sit and wait for an opportunity which they never really get.

Sorry to inform you but that certainly does not make any coach excellent.

Why would MF girls go to PDA? Didn't they just spank them last week? Why break up what can now be considered the strongest team on the east coast?

Anonymous said...

Have you seen the 2 teams play? MF plays very direct, over the top balls. They rely on certain players. PDA plays out of the back and has one of the best passing games I've seen. What type of team would you want your kid on? No my kid doesn't play PDA.

Anonymous said...

Ok Mr. non-PDA if you polled the kids on both teams after that game and asked them what team they'd rather be on I'm sure they would have all said PDA because they play out of the back better, better possession, blah blah blah. PDA had the better possession but again its all about finishing in the final third and MF can and did. Games aren't won by possession percentage. But PDA plays a hell of a game in the first and second third so everyone should jump ship.. Just wondering does your kid play for MF? I know you cant answer that. Lots of haters within

8:34 Try to guess who said this about passing the ball. "I loathe all that passing for the sake of it, all that tiki taka. It's so much rubbish and has no purpose. You have to pass the ball with a clear intention, with the aim of making it into the opposition's goal. It's not about passing for the sake of it."

Anonymous said...

Sorry I offended you MF dad but like it or not PDA has the better team. Obviously. MF is ECNL's version of a kick and run team.

Haha Carolina also had the better team just tell that to the Broncos. Ironically they both have similar players

This is great stuff players leaving MF for PDA - then they have no right to complain if they are left off the roster for the national event this year since they made their choice to go to PDA? If i was a MF NPL player's parent I would be super happy as this opens the door for your kid to play in the premier showcase event at U14. Let people talk all the smack they want because at the end of the day they want their kid playing on a team that goes to nationals to get the exposure.

If MF ECNL will have all these open spots - that's a good thing for new players as they will join a team that just went to nationals

Anonymous said...

9:07 I'm not a MF dad, just think it's ridiculous how people equate being able to knock the ball sideways with being a good team where kids are becoming better players. The game today at the highest level is about pace and counter attacking, not sterile domination of the ball. German clubs from youth level up teach kids to get the ball forward into a scoring position in 3 or fewer passes if possible. Are they kick and run? No, it's a style of play that's highly effective.
And by the way, Pep Guardiola is the one who said passing for the sake of passing is rubbish.

Anonymous said...

Wildcats are a good team and their all about knocking people sideways.....oh wait, you said knocking the ball sideways.

Anonymous said...

10:03 this is GS4 Life not previous poster. I agree - I just think at this age kids need to know to pass the ball on the deck they need to work on their first touch every day. There is time to score in the final 3rd, my kid's not even in HS yet.

Tactical training is introduced way to early in my opinion. I almost want the kids playing free with a trainer just watching and teaching for 30 minutes.

Personally I think the players on CFC Delco, Bucks & WC are in the best positions right now. They are playing teams that are two steps ahead so they have to figure out how to get it done when the cards are stacked against you as long as they continue trying to play soccer to become better they win regardless of what the scoreboard is saying.

As a fan I'm the first one posting game results and rankings but these mean nothing in the big picture. I pay the bucks for my kid to learn the game - I sit back and watch her play - does she make mistakes yup but I know her technical ability is superior to most and it's visible. I want her making mistakes and having to look over her shoulder for playing time as this will help with her development. I don't tell her what to do on the field that's for her coach to tell her. If you think the coach isn't doing a good job we all know where the door is. If her goal is college then she has to earn that playing 60 games a season just for the sake of playing won't help. She has to do all the things that are required - practice more practice and even more practice for when she gets the opportunity to show the school she wants what she can do.

The days of coaches going to events will disappear soon. the next thing the events will do is charge more for their showcase events so they can have a video library of every game played. The coach can watch what ever they want when ever they want - we are no longer in bedrock, just my opinion.

@10:18 Not a MF parent at all just another parent looking for a team for their girl. Unfortunately what is going on at MF with Daddy ball is obvious to outsiders too.

Anonymous said...

Regardless of the result in the recent game vs PDA there are many at MF unhappy with the inconsistent training and the roulette wheel of different coach/trainers showing up for training sessions and games as well as with the move out of the shore area to Morris County facility for training. I don't think results/wins and losses are the issue going forward.

Here is what will happen at MFA next year at U15 and U16, they plug in a few players from the NPL teams and add a few new kids and they have nationally competitive teams again. It's easy to lose perspective, but kids come and go from these types of teams and rarely does it matter. Moving to Denville helps the staff because they all live in Morris or Sussex county.

Anonymous said...

I agree 12:44 look at the first 13 league games played last year vs the this year the results say it's the same team and according to this board 9 players from NJX moved to ECNL team, there is no reason to think anything will change
next season at MF if players leave, PDA on the other hand sounds like they might get some players that have parents that are very vocal if things don't go their way.

If MF doesn't do the DA, the best girls will leave. Whether it's to PDA or whoever gets a team. It would make sense that there is a DA team up North somewhere. The attraction of just an ECNL team at MF won't be enough.

There is a WCFC dad on BOTN complaining about his daughters team, trying to blame their recent troubles on their trainer, oh if it were only that simple dude. Personally, I think Wold Class is anything but, their training is lousy, their management is terrible, and they are about to take their fields away. If I were that guy, I would look for another club.

Anonymous said...

2:45 I would disagree with you the GDA will be for the special few that are willing to sacrifice 10 months of the year 4 days a week not counting games and travel for the love of the game that have parents that can do the same. Not as easy as you think it also depends on the clubs that get a GDA and where they are located. The next best thing will be the ECNL since none of the NJ teams are playing RCL to advance to the USYSA National League.

While others are running for the hills - others have them on their list. If PDA is option A I'm sure MF is option B until the GDA clubs are announced then everything turns upside down again.

Good point about Flight 9 at Jeff Cup, it is still Jeff Cup. I actually know a U15 team that was declined entry to the tournament. And they play EDP 2nd division. So good for boca.

My daughter’s team played Boca in the fall, and to be honest there weren’t any Hot Mom’s that I saw, has this become an urban myth? Maybe I should of paid more attention to game, maybe not.

4:22 We played them in the fall and there was a couple that blue jeans were made for. Also, there wasn't any mommies stuffed into yoga pants like rice at a chinese take out (how do they get all that rice in there).
So team Boca gets points for both, which in a world of goal differential gives them a plus 6.
PDA Ajax plus 3
NJ Rush even
Wildcats -11

So I went to BOTN and checked it out (never heard of it before). Same bashing crap on there as here recently with MFA. Another unhappy parent. Remember people we live in a free country. Finish the season and move elsewhere, or don't finish the season, stop bitching and move on now.

For all the people guessing about who is getting the DA's. Copa is locked in as one of the clubs getting a DA for a few reasons including their relationship and link now to Sky Blue. There has been many kids showing up lately for ID at Copa including MF kids. I wonder how they are going to do the other DA?

Why do you think only 2 DAs? Boys has more tgan that.

So how should an NPL parent feel when their daughter gets to practice and there's eight girls from another club practicing with her team? It obvious they are there for the ecnl coach to make a decision on who he likes. Should displeasure of this be brought up to the coach? Or will that be looked at as sour grapes?

There aren't many competitive teams talked about on here where new girls aren't coming every year. That is just the way it is. No use saying anything.

1002 keep telling yourself that, GDA club's will be chosen next next spring so no one knows yet who is in or not. There is no guarantee yet so you can market COPA all you want if they don't get it I'm sure you'll jump to the next club that has it.

Anonymous said...

Here is the deal, mental toughness is an integral part of sports. For better or worse teams know the players they have and want to evaluate new players who have shown interest. I have even see times where they scrimmage inter club and current players don't start and play less. Does that seem right, no. But kids have to understand what's going on an not have it bother them. With most coaches talking to them in season about your kid is a mistake.

Here we go again, the Manalapan/NJCSA basher. Looking at NJCSA history, they are just coming off an impressive weekend beating STA 3-0 and both tying and losing by just one to Crush. Don't see any reason to bash them at this time. Maybe not #1 but making their way up there

3:38 let's see if the results back your statement. First you do know they beat STA 'B" team 3-0 not the NPL team right? I wouldn't say making their way up - results say they are an average team that benefited from EDP gotsoccer points or shall I just say playing in 11 gotsoccer events. If they make it to Colorado or Texas for the National events via NPL & NCS then I will agree moving on up but as of now it's Quantity not Quality, sorry.

8:49 it's all good. I listed for you their u14 wins the high profile wins are vs calvert and nysc who both wish they can start u14 over again. Outside of those teams nobody high profile, NCS champ yes let's see how they do at the Region1 event in Barboursville, West Virginia (June 30 - July 5, 2016). I agree it's an accomplishment to reach this event. Just like I said it was an accomplishment for NJ Wildcats last year. They didn't advance out of the group stage.

Since my tag is GS4Life - figured I would do a little NJ research.
PDA Storm is head and sholders better than any of the teams in the top 10.
If any of you guys know their team manager - tell them to merge the PDA PRE-ECNL account GS created for them with their Storm account that would give them
20,825 GS points in only 4 events. It took all the other teams 3 times the events to be in the same conversation.

8:49 That's a good team, it took NJCSA 7 more events to have 2K points more.
what's that about $5,000 to hold that #1 GS title? I don't have a beef with calling you State Champ since you are andyou will be until next October.

From what I've seen manalapan has one play. They have a fast girl hang out with the opposing team's last defender "ready to make a run" then kick it like crazy to her. And their goalie is very good.

PDA AND Match Fit could care less about Got Soccer points.

NJCSA is a nice town-ish team, just 1 kid is good enough to play on one of the top NPL/ECNL teams. The rest of the team is playing to support one player. This is very common knowledge in the New Jersey soccer world.

They play very soft teams and tournaments to rack up useless points, they borrow players, circumvent rules for GS points, and almost all of their kids handcuffed to their team. It's a mind-fu(k that they're telling unknowing parents so they don't abandon this mess.

I hope the NJCSA parents realize that now is the time to get out before it's too late. Years of playing Mommy/Daddy ball has been a colossal waste of their kids, and their own time, and it's time to make a move... The rest of that team have been pawns for the betterment of one player. 2001/2002 kids can do so much better than this dumpster fire.

You're wasting the few precious years of your daughter's time, and if a parent is okay with this, then good for them, and I stand corrected.

Anonymous said...

Very accurate description of this NJCSA team. The leader is the former Manalapn coach who fiddled with that team until that imploded. The one player you mention is a top performer. Keep her out of this. She is a player and not involved in the dealings of the mom and the other adults.

But the parents shoulder some of the fault too. They allow themselves to be suckered by the suckees. They get high on victories and saying we're ranked #1 or #2. And all for what? So they can tell their friends that their kid is on a highly ranked team. Then they watch the game and they hardly realize that their daughter is a non-factor in the game. That's the body blow here. Their kids are not developing and not contributing to the result. They are running and kicking.

It takes two to tango. The sucker and the suckee. Sadly, the suckers are easy marks. Like the tourists in NYC who stop and play 3 card monty and then look befuddled when it's over and their money is gone.

But we're #1! Yay us!

Just one correction

NJCSA Manalapan and NJ Crush NPL actually tied twice

Anonymous said...

10:55 Last time we are not PDA so who cares if they care or don't care - the team manager is a parent just like us and has nothing to do with what PDA cares about - all PDA should care about is training their players period. They proved they don't care about GS when they stripped their 2015 event from GS. So yes, we get they don't care in your oppinion. I say they do care because their 2016 kickoff has GS app for teams to apply see link https://events.gotsport.com/forms/app/Default.aspx?EventID=51128!! So they want to use GS to get $$$$$. So either they don't know that the GS points were taken away from the 2015 event (they can't be that stupid) or they did it on purpose which took away points from many teams only to use the software again to get more money.

Why is it that only PDA and Match Fit could careless? Do they care about setting up a PDP for their NorthEast Girls NPL? Nope because PDPs are ODP events and if NPL players were worthy they would be on ECNL team, right? SO what exactly is the benefit for playing on teams other than ECNL at PDA/Machfit since they care less?>

6:22 you from NYC? let me guess you used to hang out on St. Marks and thought you were cool or was it the "village" or maybe it was the limelight if you could get in right? There are suckers everywhere my friend - starting with all of us that check and post on this blog with me being #1

My daughters team has played NJCSA a few times. My daughter always plays the whole game. She is not great but top 8 on squad of 16 so she plays. PL, PDA, Calvert, NYSC, STA npl, 1776, FC Virginia. Just some other teams my daughter has played against that are much better tactically than NJCSA. I understand NJCSA was missing starting keeper yesterday. I never like that excuse. We miss players also due to illness injury or grandmas 90th party. I also think part of what you do in life is figure out how to be the best. And truthfully NJCSA and Boca have done that in different forms recently. Boca was spring us club champs. NJCSA is revered for sure due to ranking and bid to ncs

10:14 so they only care about GS money?

So they bait the teams to think they are getting GS points then they don't give them? A little shaddy no? If you don't care why use the app?

PDA 2016 Spring Kickoff

I just wanted to see Storm merge their accounts to show all the other teams Quality over Quantity any day of the week. A much easier sell when you want 18+ players. But you are right I don't care but they apparently do when it comes to GS $$$ not points. It is a business they can tell you they don't care but if it walks like a duck

What baffles me is looking up boca they are in EDP division 2 this spring? How does that happen? I would make a very strong bet they are going to run the field and you will have 4-0 6-0 scoring going on. Not good for either teams. Looks like they were in Division 1 and lost a few games, but to drop them to 2 is a big mistake and will not work well for EDP. They were in a tough division with 1776, Calvert, PL, Rage, Harford, HFC.

Once you get into the U16 phase of ODP, its a very good value. A little less money grabbing at that stage and more of the best players playing together.

4:46pm so what did PDA Shore do differently than BOCA to stay in Div 1? BOCA was in a tougher division and had same w/l results. Plus has topped PDA in all games against. BOCA also has beaten several others in both Central Div 1 and North Div 1 on numerous occasions. Not doing all the statistics at this point, but looking at it, I would assume they have a winning record verse all Division I teams over the past year. Fair to say they did poorly in Div 1 South and appear inconsistent but maybe consideration should have been given for Div 1 Central for this season is all I'm saying. This season will likely be a waste for them as well as the teams they face.

Anonymous said...

Ajax is undefeated in the NE NPL and Storm wouldn't lose to them so doubt there is a concern there. They have more depth than any NPL team. The tournament field is pretty weak, but some F1 teams could be switched with some F2s. Obviously the game to watch will be Storm / NEFC.

Maybe they just wanted to give the lower level teams a chance to enjoy the moms.

The Dragons look like they have a gimme game playing FC Bucks. How did they get in 2nd flight? Are there only 2 flights? Man, this is a bad tournament!!!!

Anonymous said...

They created this mess by removing GS points last year and Storm not playing. They had 5 flights with 4 teams in each flight not getting points. Should be no surprise the teams didn't show up this year. They don't have to care about GS points but the teams that do didn't show up. Last year we read about how deep this event was not the case this year.

@4:46 The boca relegation is strange. They actually beat Betheseda. Maybe the coach requested the relegation for some reason? They were accepted at Jeff Cup, but perhaps being shunned for not having D1 teams at the girls level ever. This is one of the few boca girls teams that ever did well. Boca is for boys side I think more than girls. That is what I have heard. No we do not play for boca, but play against them. I do think they will beat and run the division they are in, we have played against them with no success btw. Then the whole pda shore thing, I know they just beat pda shore, apparently beat them twice? But again, PDA gets in because of the name. Very strange if you ask me, political to say the least about edp, would you not say something is wrong 4:46?

Anonymous said...

1:43 i would agree -also with 1776, PL and Harford all opting out - I don't think there was need to relegate at all. No need to bring PDA into the conversation as they "Shore" were in another division (head 2 head means nothing when it comes to league play). However, I do believe Bethesda was given a bye because of name as they finished in 9th - last place not Boca

I do admire Boca and Wall for that matter. Local teams playing at the highest level and winning. I pay attention and it is interesting to say the least.

Anonymous said...

I am not familiar with Boca, have not seen them play and haven't seen the moms, but I just looked through gotsoccer history to see what the fuss is about and couldn't find a single win that would appear significant. Who have they beaten in the last year that you would say is a real good win? Not disrespecting, just don't see it.

Anonymous said...

We played Boca and they were a much better team at the end of the season than in the beginning (isn't that the goal). Are they capable of beating top tier teams on a consistent basis? Don't think so, but they do play hard the whole game no matter what the score. So the coach must be doing something right.

Anonymous said...

Many on this board talk trash about NE NPL. Same people praising Boca? Boca lost to WC NPL @ Jeff cup. WC NPL is one of the middle pack in NE NPL.... Isn't this telling something?

Anonymous said...

Well since Boca was relegated to Flight 2 in EDP this season that may very well be telling. Boca is terrible. All the talk about them is just their coach selling wolf tickets(BS). Truth is they are losing some of the few decent players they have as Daddy Coach politics has become as tiresome as it is at NJCSA Elite. Run while you can. Boca is a sinking ship.

Anonymous said...

Agreed, It is all about showcasing your daughter for college starting in the fall whether 2002(U15) or 2001(U16).
You need to get on a team playing in highest possible flights where your player can earn good time.

6:21 Its tells you how far showing a little class during games goes. Boca parents accepted loses as learning experiences for their players, not screaming at the refs or other parents during games. The ones you mentioned.....not so much.
Don't be so jealous of the slight praise Boca is getting, they at least are aware of their limitations, many on here are not.

Announcing SJEB Rush
03/29/2016, 1:00pm EDT By SJEB

Merger Announcement - South Jersey Elite Barons & NJ Rush Join Forces to Form a National Contender

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016, South Jersey, NJ – New Jersey Rush and South Jersey Elite Barons (SJEB) announced today a partnership agreement that will see the showcase age groups (U15-U19) of the two largest academy clubs in South Jersey merge to form a super club expected to compete on the national stage.

The combined college showcase age groups will operate as SJEB Rush.

The two organizations will immediately begin to transition activities by combining the rising birth year 2002 - 1998 teams, with unified service delivery beginning this April for tryouts of the 2016-17 seasonal year.


The U14 & younger age groups will remain untouched for this upcoming year and stay as the South Jersey Elite Barons and NJ Rush separately.

NJ Rush teams out of Hamilton Township, NJ will also be unaffected by the merger.

By combining forces, SJEB Rush will provide the highest level of competitive soccer for South Jersey players in their college showcase years on both the Boy’s and Girl’s sides. In addition to providing opportunities for players at the highest levels to compete on the national stage, SJEB Rush will offer multiple high level teams at each age group, allowing for a custom fit for all serious players looking to showcase their talents for college coaches.

SJEB Rush will have a website with the following domain names - www.SJEBRush.org and www.SJEBRush.com.

Of course they can use the entire WC roster for either team, so that helps.

Only 2 of the 8 listed NE NPL teams have winning records, PF and FC Stars, and FC Stars has played just once against the PA, NY & NJ competition. Continental is a stellar 0-3 against the competition. Unless your post was intended as sarcasm, you need better evidence to trump the NE NPL bashers.

I also reviewed loss wins for boca, and have reviewed them often being local to the team. I count over 10 Division 1 teams they beat in last year. Including. TSF, SJEB twice, PDA Shore twice. NJCSA twice. Rage, HFC, Pipeline. Pumas. Bethesda. Ramapo. I am not sure about the other teams, I see Copa defeated and others I am not sure about rankings. Some of these games were shut outs so not close as you might say. PDA shore pales in comparison looking at their history. don't want to bore you. Daddy politics will reign, but local to the shore area not much besides pda shore and wildcats. Where do you go? I see the merger, maybe that would form a shore area team?

Looking at above scores, many close games. WC tied with Wildcats. Boca beat CFC. WC is a good team, not middle of pack? Wildcats I think are slipping in general.

7:52 you have no clue about BOCA and are posting nonsense. They haven't lost any players, nobody is leaving, it is a very tight knit team and all the players and parents get along. In fact they are almost entirely 2002s, with one 2001 and one 2003 on the team so will have no impact by the age group change. My daughter has guested for them bc they had injuries and it's a great environment, nothing sinking. So try again.

Anonymous said...

^oh and regarding their 1-0 loss to WC NPL, my daughter still stays in contact with several of the girls and they were very upset after that loss as they outplayed WC and stayed in the attacking third but missed 5-6 solid scoring chances (hitting post or mistouches on easy goals). I guess that's what happens when you're 13. But instead of making excuses like so many do on here, they just take the experience and move on. Maybe you should learn something from them as you seem a little disgruntled

Anonymous said...

Do you have to tell your coach if you are going to a try out at another club? Our club has said we must tell them if we are going to other try outs. They said it is a small community and they will find out from the coaches at other clubs when they "hang out" together. Can you share thoughts, opinions, experiences on this topic?

Anonymous said...

oh PAGS guy -

1776 got crushed by Oakwood who lost to Manhattan. To 1:16's point these are 14 year old girls. If you have played the game it's very hard to play simple even though it's a simple game. A team can have more chances than another but all it takes is one direct pass (counter attack), one error, or a bad call by a ref (more times than not) when teams are close to each other.

The girls are 14 now and should understand how to play the game - these are the kids that have good training. They know where to be when attacking or in transition they don't need their coach or a parent telling them where to be - they may need a kick in the but to focus but everything else they should understand by now.

PS. If a team plays a team that is more technical, I have no problem with that team drawing the technical team in to their third and then hitting them with direct balls all day. There is nothing wrong with not being the best team on paper - our girls are at a point where they need to figure out a team's weakness - make sure the worst player on the team gets the ball the most and you win the ball back very easily and can start your counter.

Anonymous said...

9:04 you don't have to do anything but at the end of the day why wouldn't you?They bring other players in to train with them to replace a player and you are free to test the waters for your kid as well.

Question - did your kid request to tryout for another team or was this your decision?

Remember the players hold the cards not the programs - the programs are good because of the players they have - don't believe the hype

Yes you should notify your club-no you don't "have to" but the night your daughter is trying out at another club, give it 5 minutes and your existing coach will know...trust me, from experience
I agree 9:13, make sure this is mostly your daughter's decision, she's old enough to know
I would recommend trying out at a club with high probability of girls' DA coming soon.

From another blog but soooo well said. Who will admit they are guilty of this?
"I'm not an overly obsessed parent, convinced my child is the second coming of Mia Hamm, not being noticed by power 5 college coaches bc of the lesser skilled players around her that they are stuck playing with, bc other equally skilled players committed for a little bit of money to go to a college so they can play soccer for four more years are not playing in this very immensely important game in my child's life, but they might actually have played depending on who is posting, and bc they aren't playing my Mia2 isn't able to perform her highly acclaimed foot skills and rainbow passes bc the shlub players on the field with her were hiding from the ball and didn't want to play or know how to play the game. Woe is my life of a soccer parent. I've been angry all week about this injustice that I've just about burst an artery so I need to come and talk about it on this blog so other like minded soccer superiors can reassure me that my mia2 is still a star."

12:58 I have to agree with 11:02 when it comes to NJ Wildcats they published their GS ranking on ther webiste when the NPL team was high as documented on this board. They have opened the door to this, so yes NJ Wildcats Galaxy are the better team you can't like GS when it benefits you and then hate it when it doesn't.

But I also agree with you since galaxy is better than the NPL team and Fc Frederick and CFC both beat up galaxy that makes none of the Nj non-ecnl teams good 'A' teams. Wow we are running out of good A teams? Since we can't use Manhattan, NYSC, YMS, PAC, NJCSA, Oakwood (just love using this team), 1776 and now both NJ Wildcat teams and since STA and NJ Crush are below the Wildcats - well maybe they aren't since they haven't played at u14.

I'm still waiting for the guy from yesterday to post his "A" list from NY/NJ/PA non-ECNL of course. PL and ???? there must be more than 1 in the 3 states?

...says the guy whose team didn't place...

Well evidently the tournament directors think differently as Wildcats Averbuch NPL is consistently placed in flight 1 while Galaxy is consistently place in lower flights.
And the NPL Team has won by shutout each time they have played.

.....and got 3 excellent games out of it, 1:37

Thanks.

If you expect to always win you are probably not challenging your club.

1:41 You don't know what info the tournament directors are going off of, do you? You can't use results that are not u14 - I've been told this many times on this board? I can tell you that there were many teams at jefferson cup not in top flight that would have given them a fight.

this team lost to GPS NJ FLASH U14G ELITE (NJ) 1:2 in a NJ NCS game so they played to win.

this team also lost VICTORY EXPRESS SC VICTORY EXPRESS PLATINUM (PAW) at the Region 1 championships 34 days before U14 (but we can't use it right - only you can use the shutouts from previous years). But since you did use previous years. I'll show you how VE did at Jefferson

0:6 SEVERNA PARK BLACK THUNDER (MD)
0:4 FC STARS OF MASS NPL (MA)
0:4 MASSAPEQUA NPL LIL' ROWDIES (NYE)

1:11 – Not the guy from yesterday, but here is a top ten "A" team list from NYE/NJ/PAE, non-ECNL of course, and in no particular order, but using some previously declared to be unspeakable:

PL
NJ Wildcats Averbuch
LVU
1776
PAC
ISA Athletico
YMS
NJ Rush Blue
Hulmeville
NJ Crush

Honorable Mention:

PU Force
NYSC
STA Morris
NJCSA
SJEB

Penn Legacy and NJ Wildcats Averbuch clearly at a level above the rest of that group right now.
There is not one other team on that list that has a win over either PL or NJ Wildcats.
And most of the results have been one sided when those teams matched up with either PL or Wildcats Averbuch.

Anonymous said...

Can someone pull up results vs those non-ECNL Teams for PL, Wildcats Averbuch and Galaxy from U14 year. maybe also include the current #1 ranked NJ team NJCSA Elite for comparison purposes.

You can take your honorable mention, and shove it up your ass.

Honestly 3:55 list is pretty spot on.

Funny, not one PDA or MF team on that list. None of those teams are better.

7:07. You are dreaming

Anonymous said...

When's the last time the NJ teams on that list beat a PDA or MF NPL team?

Anonymous said...

7:07 That well thought out list does not include NE NPL.. if it did include NE NPL, the top 3 teams would be PDA, MF, PDA

Wildcats havent played Crush since 2014

And Wildcats never beat PL - I dont know why you insist on riding their coattails.

Anonymous said...

Wildcats have been EDP and NPL champs last few seasons in succession.
And have won all their games vs the teams on that list.
Including by multiple goal spreads vs LVU, TSF, NJ Rush Blue, Galaxy, NJCSA Elite and SJEB who were the next best teams in those leagues.

7:07 - The refs must love you at tournaments. Go back and read the rules of the game. The list was to include non-ECNL "A" teams. Do PDA or MF have "A" teams that are not ECNL? If so, I suppose ECNL is not as elite is it says it is.

4:30 - NJCSA Elite only ranked #1 in NJ by the GS quantity system. They are ranked #14 in NJ by the YSR quality system. The predictive value of YSR is more accurate in determining the outcome of individual matches than GS.

Wildcats haven't beat a PDA or MF team in 3 years.

Take away "focaccia" EDP points and Wildcats wouldn't be in the top 20 in NJ.

NJ and NY must be taking the day off

Just checked and agree youth soccer rankings much more accurate. Other than having an extra South team in the rankings it was just about on point from 1-15.

Anonymous said...

Sorry YSR had an extra PDA South NPL Team in the rankings.

Anonymous said...

11:52 that list was to compare non-ecnl A teams to the North East NPL teams. My point is that there is not much difference and I provided results to prove that.

PDA beats cal 4-0. So much for California teams being dominate.

Real SoCal 3 Penn Fusion 0

That's an embarrassment . Guess PF should spend more time recruiting . Oops , I mean player "development " lol

Anonymous said...

Strikers FC 4 MF ECNL 1

That's the last place team in The Southwest Conference(mostly CA teams) manhandling the top team in the Northeast Conference. Wow.

Anonymous said...

Just goes to show that matchfit beating PDA for first time was probably a fluke.

I agree, 6:21. That's irrefutable proof.

MF team is in such turmoil right now

Anonymous said...

"Showcase"!!! just tells me the other teams are deeper. You play every game to win but you play these games to win with the entire team - College Showcase pal.

Anonymous said...

You guys are delusional thinking U14 college showcase actually matters for anything lol. ECNL, your club, the hotels, restaurants etc all thank you for wasting your cash. When half of these kids are gone next year off PDA and MF they'll have the pictures and tee shirts to remember the trio by! U-15 everything changed for actually everyone so see you lunatics next season on U-15 page ROFL!

Anonymous said...

8:35 isn't that what I said they play the game to win with the entire roster = Showcase while in CA? So a 4-1 and 3-0 loss just tells me the other teams were deeper. But yet Storm had their way 4-0 looks like a deep team.

Anonymous said...

Storm suddenly scoring in droves when a certain - ahem - player shows up - and no mention of this.

Interesting.

Anonymous said...

Not a good showing by MFA, but for young kids travelling to the west coast and playing CA teams in the 8am game, ECNL did not do them a favor. Reverse that and you'd have a similiar result with MFA on top.
