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.

The only way PF could be close to PDA is if CFC and PF merged.

Anonymous said...

1124 You never know USSF may ask a few clubs merge when GDA is established to minimize exposure locations to visit. I can see that happening as well for MF and World Class.

Anonymous said...

11:24... you are out of your mind with the MF and World Class suggestion... but i guess you never know.

Did clubs merge with the boy's DA. Not an insider but the info on the girl's DA seems to mirror many elements of the boys side.

Obviously many differences,most notable being that many of the Boys DA clubs are no cost to the player and that is not the plan on the Girl's side.

Anonymous said...

Regarding the DA... if a non-MLS DA is providing reduced fees for their Boys DA. Will they need to provide the same reduced fee for the girls DA? I know that initially the plan was not for the girls DA to be funded, however it may open up clubs to discrimination lawsuits. Especially clubs that are not MLS funded.

This has to be a major headache for clubs trying to figure out what to do and how to pay for it. Consolidation may be the only way that clubs can afford it.

Anonymous said...

Is it discrimination? Don't know but the boys and girls environment is very unequal so do the youth players have to be treated equally.

There is money to be made from boys talented enough to go pro. That is simply not the case on the girl's side. On the girl's side, the money comes from the player's families.

Anonymous said...

I guess that's why PF is 3500 trying to bank now knowing DA will fall in line next year and coaches pay will be reduced.

Anonymous said...

Currently, there is no domestic training compensation or solidarity fees for youth clubs that develop MLS players. But I think they are working on it.

So right now... it doesn't matter if a club is developing a male or female. They get nothing (expect for what the parent's pay).

Remember the DeAndre Yedlin situation where Tottenham paid a fee and the MLS took the whole thing... Crossfire (his youth club) claims they were owed $60,000 in the deal. MLS kept it all. Not sure what the current status of this is?

Anonymous said...

@9:29 AM Spot on! No one knows what will be happening with any club, at any age group, in any state. Rankings, points, etc will not matter. It's a clean slate for all.

Anonymous said...

The Girl's DA FAQs seem to indicate reduced fees be made to families with financial need. Sounds just like the ECNL which always claims the same. Not a good environment for lower or middle income players.

Anonymous said...

No way GDA will be $3500! That's just a greedy club right there. GDA will be under $2000.

Anonymous said...

3500 for a year that begins in late Fall as opposed to late summer? or does that include a Fall season too?

Anonymous said...

No fall season, girls will be playing HS.Season starts in Nov.

Yes U15 - U19 start late Nov. and carry into June. So that leaves 3 or 4 months of no club soccer (Jul, Aug, 1/2 Dec, 1/2 Jan, many cancelled Feb. sessions due to weather).

So a player goes from 10 months of club soccer to 8 months and the cost almost doubles that makes no sense. Hopefully GDA fixes this as they perceive to say and are correct that there are many players missed because of the pay to play system.

No wonder why GDA did not want anything to do with ECNL.

Hate to say this but if you have been paying attn to what was being said on this blog, not only this spring but last, you would have expected that. For the 01's both CFC & PF have their first tryout next Monday night. Choose wisely!

Enough with PA - PDA tryouts were this past week for 02's as well and they are not getting slammed glad this just shows the amount of angry parents in PA.

Everyone already knows about the shady "back room deals" at PDA, but people are surprised it's happening at other clubs now as well.

250 there is NO hidden back room deals at PDA they will be upfront with players/parents right away but everyone pays there dues. PDA tryouts were still mix they didn't group selected players together

Sometimes you just have to stop and enjoy the experience. Its only going to happen once for me, and I am very grateful to the wonderful and supportive parents on our team. We have had our ups and downs, but I know that my daughter is training with one of the best clubs in this area, and she has become a very solid footballer.

Sorry that my post was too positive for this shit-bag group...

Anonymous said...

@3:55 you do understand you can find great training without spending that type of money right? If you are wealthy then I'm sure you don't care but most understand what real purpose that kind of money can have. College savings to give just one example. 4 years of ECNL alone will cost you $40K. Think about it. Time goes fast and most these kids will have careers that don't involve a soccer field.

Just stop lying I know players from PDA who got deals to go there.
Do you PDA people ever stop lying?

I have no idea if you are pretentious and I completely agree with stop and enjoy the experience. You did not leave it at that, you added your player is "training with one of the best clubs in the area". I don't know, maybe you are very humble.

Anonymous said...

5:02. I agree. I know people that went to PDA who got a reduced price to go there. That is because their parents made less than $65,000 per year and were eligible for financial aid. How dare they!

Anonymous said...

Good for them. If u make $66,000 oh well. High level youth sports is for the well off and for a few low income players that can get some assistance. Good thing there are lower cost clubs to serve most players in spite of the abuse they suffer on forums.

So who pays for the travel expenses(flight, hotel, food) for the unfortunate. I call BS on all that, didn't I read someone posting before you never hear a rags to riches story in the soccer world comparable to other sports.

If a couple thousand dollars is that big of a deal, you shouldn't be spending your time on a forum whining about it, you should be spending your time looking for a better paying/supplemental income.

Its not your dollar anyone cares about its a fascination factor with how much people are willing to pay for youth soccer.

9:08 I think Berna makes a run for it but PDA might get them in the finals.

Anonymous said...

9:32 I just checked the brackets to see who is left and Berna is not even in state cup anymore, you better predict differently lol. My guess PDA all the way! But do see BOCA was able to get into semifinals here too (also in open cup semis) which is impressive. Seems like they are on a run so I'm predicting them as finalists but they fall to Ajax in finals.

Anonymous said...

BOCA cannot lose right now, impressive yes 1-0 in pouring rain and under lights. PDA, and two Wild Cats left, plus NJCSA. I don't know about this Samba team, does anyone know them? I would think with two cats left, NJCSA and PDA, it will be interesting with those 4 in the mix. NJCSA or Galaxy cats will fall on 5/2, then once final 4 is set it can be interesting. Lets say Samba wins, somehow, doubtful, but you never know, again I know nothing about Samba. Then Boca can beat Samba? Go to finals versus PDA or NJCSA I would think. If, if, if. We will be done with this in next 10 days. Some great soccer coming up.

Did you check out the 2 new leaders of Girls side at Cedar Stars/NJCSA tryouts.
Both have been with just about every club around and shelf life is 1-2 years at each stop.
It's like a comedy team 1 of them lies and the other swears to it.The 1 just got fired again this time from Atlantic Club and again left under a cloud. I give this partnership 6 months tops to blow up.

Anonymous said...

@9:12 what do you mean too young? The whole team is only 02 and beating teams that have 01 and 02, and beating the best teams in the state this season. At quarterfinals for Open Cup and US Club. I am even more impressed once I hear that the whole team is 02. And I cannot believe the played last night in that rain, but soccer must go on.

Anonymous said...

Word is the current U14 NJCSA Elite Team is staying together and moving out of NJCSA/Cedar Stars Club, possibly back to Manalapan. Not sure if they will keep teams 2001 and 2002's together and play up as 2001 Team or just move forward with a 2002 Team. Didn't see even 1 of NJCSA Elites players at Cedar Stars tryouts for next years 2002 NPL Team. Also heard they might be combining their 2002's with Boca 2002's.

Anonymous said...

11:33 I am not 9:12 but may have read that post differently than you. I think what he saying is that they will be stronger next year playing against other teams that are all 02s. They are young this year in comparison to other U14 teams that are largely 01s and that shows in consistency. From posts several weeks ago they also have two 2003s playing up so yes they are young this season. Don't think it was meant as a knock against them so relax a little lol. Remember they struggled significantly at regionals vs top teams last year. And still drop to lower level teams sometimes as well. But the fact that they stay together and are "younger" will be beneficial to them going forward.

Anonymous said...

Thanks, 11:40

That is exactly what I meant

And frankly I dont see ANY top wins since they beat Manalapan in May 2015. They just dont play that type schedule

TSF? Maybe.

Anonymous said...

How did the SJEB Rush tryout go ? I heard last night there were no sign in sheet and no tryout number given out. I guess they already know who they want? hmmmmm There is another day May 3 for the 4th tryout. I guess I won't be taking my daughter there. I also heard Real coach is now SJEB asst coach, I guess his girls get first dibs at a spot. I thought the merger brings SJEB and Rush girls together, not Real Club.

I think they are combing the 3 of them now so they can be sure someone will bring the coaching credentials to the games. They have it covered.

@11:47 boca has a while to go of course. I do not think TSF win was a big deal, TSF has been declining. I would say their wins against NJCSA, FC Berna and STA in state cup are impressive this season. The CFC npl club tie in VA was also nice. And I see GPS in there twice in last year that they beat. And what can you say about PDA shore except they beat them twice last season. Is it true boca and njcsa may be combining top players? That could create a great team I think?

Anonymous said...

@12:01 Really, no sign in sheet, no numbers? Real is up and coming at this age group? NJ Rush is good team, with many teams (I think 3 teams at U14?) The merger should work well for all in South Jersey

Anonymous said...

Don't many of you realize that with the BYC many of the clubs already know who to pull back into their top teams within the clubs. The change is impact teams within the club and most of these top clubs will only pull in a few player from outside no need to move out players if they have not proven themselves in the new age change group yet.

Anonymous said...

9:48/11:09 you both care because your team is crumbling around you. We all have to accept that were staying or leaving and deal with the cards were given. Time will tell how the other local ECNL clubs will benefit from the crash up north. In the end we want our kids to be in the best position to succeed and even more important enjoy the entire journey. And that includes the parents being around other parents on the sidelines that aren't cancerous.

5:02 - Not sure what your agenda is, but it is apparent. From everything I really know and hear that politics goes on at all clubs, it's the same everywhere. And if a parent decides to take their kid off a very successful program because of the politics, or what the have read here, you'll surely be walking into your own sh!t storm on a weaker team.

Additionally, It's pretty sad when a deposed coach trashes a club for months that he's poaching from. It's so obvious and shallow. Do yourself a favor and stop making yourself look stupid, you're already untrustworthy.

I'm not naming my club or year but it's not the coach complaining. The club is falling apart and parents like myself are just upset at how they were scammed.

The Elite Clubs National League U14 Northeast Conference has come down to a race for 2 teams in the Metro Division with East Meadow needing just 1 point to clinch. PennFusion was considered a darkhorse by some on this board until they played Storm. I saw the score but didn't read any posts about the score. My guess is that it wasn't much of a game - so PDA had nothing to say and PennFusion had nothing to defend. MatchFit controls their destiny all they need are 2 wins out of 3 if PDA runs the table

NJ state cup. Galaxy versus Ajax. Boca versus Averbuch. In the end the best 4 teams are there that entered. NJCSA has lost much this spring. I believe missing injured keeper and other injury. I am pretty sure you will see Ajax verse Averbuch on Mother's Day. Either way congrats to all 4 teams. You could have a cats verse cats also. Monopoly type of thing. Have to hand it to boca, getting relegated to D 2 then making it to semi finals in both Edp open and state cup. But once you breach the top 5 in PA NY or NJ that is really great teams. The 6-12 spots drop dramatically in higher level play mostly due to lack of bench.

80 girls at PF 01 tryouts last night. Looked like there was 25-30 trying out with the ECNL group.

12:57 did they use these talent id camps to determine the 30?

Well if that was PF #'s and they take about 22-25 per team ECNL & NPL they are only moving out 30 from the tryouts. About right.

I hear both the 01 & 02 teams may be as high as 24 now(dispite what was previously stated) so that may well have been the "preselected" ECNL team. Good luck if your kid wasn't already in that group.

1:42 "I hear" there will 42 girls per ECNL team so there can be a games going on in the parking lot while the "starters" play on the field. Why do the parents of players NOT playing ECNL care so much? Worry about you & yours your kid would all be better off.

1:51 maybe these are parents with PF or with friends at PF

Just telling you PF is already going back on what they told parents just a couple weeks ago. Most years they at least wait until the first couple rounds of checks have cleared before acknowledging everything they told you at tryouts was BS. But you're right, if you want to subject your kid to the humiliation of not only not playing but not even dressing for games that's your business.

Isn't that unethical? To say you're taking 20 and turn around and take 24? Are people really going to stand for that?

Yes, yes they will.

2:09 Your true intentions show through in your comments. LMAO!

So demand a roster before excepting. If that's true that ridiculous. Any kid would be way better off elsewhere with those numbers.

Penn Fusion BS people???? Nooooooo :)

Nobody ever thinks their kid will be one of the six who does not dress for games. As long as they provide an opportunity for those six to get playing time somewhere (NPL or where ever), I am fine with it. Buyer beware.

That being said, injuries do happen. My daughter's team has a roster of 20. There has been exactly two games where any players did not dress. Currently four players are on the IR, but we've easily averaged 2 on the IR for most of the season.

1:20 they already knew all the girls attending the ID camp. Had the players separated before it started. So yeah it was the same grouping as the ID camp.

Ok smart guy. Why don't you tell me what my "true intentions" are.

I'm hearing 20 or less at PF

I know that this is now mostly a Pennsylvania/Kentucky soccer blog, but there is merger news in the NY area. NYSC and FC Westchester are combining, which is a very interesting situation. I will not give an opinion yet, as I need more time to think about it, but I think this was done to solidify a GDA in Westchester county.

Has anyone on pf02 actually seen a roster and if not why hasn't it been sent to the team???

2:42 I am sure your posts are for the greater good, just watching out for the poor pathetic know nothing parents so they are not taken advantage of by the big bad meanies at PF.
