U13G / U13 Girls Youth Soccer

U13G  / U13 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.

Have you experienced the college thing within the past few years. The trend is becoming exactly what 4:06 is saying. Personal knowledge. It's sad and crazy.

I think it is more that the kids arent out trying moves, playing games on their own - where that type creativity would blossom.

Practices are skills intensive but possibly too regimented toward team play.

But kids can do the moves beautifully, score great goals on XBOX

I think if you took that ECNL list that showed teh schools they are attending - the one US soccer was bragging about in the article...

you'd see a good percentage of junior commits - and some seniors.

I amnot saying soph commits arent all the rage. The initial post insinuated that if you are not soph committed you are in trouble. Couldnt be further from the truth.

If you are talking about needing to get into one particular school, even 2 or 3, that could be your experience that particular year, of course.

I guess my question can be stated another way - how is it possible for a sophomore verbally commit to a college when they are not allowed to recruit players at this age? How do they get around the NCAA rules regarding that?

Anonymous said...

I think 8:13 if far closer to the "solution". Although I don't view it as if we have some huge systemic problem in women's soccer. If you watched our u-17s take apart the Japanese girls a couple weeks back you know what I am saying. Look in no other major sport most of which we dominate the world at do coaches de-emphasize winning. Anyone have a football coach who didn't care about winning but instead spent years working on "development"? Our high priced coaches have convinced us the only way to get better is through high priced structured training and really I think thats just the opposite of what they need at a young age.

Anonymous said...

8:17 you answered your own question.
THEY are not allowed to recruit. THEY are allowed to tell the club coach (I believe) and the PLAYER is allowed to contact them and visit the school at the players cost. I know there is more to this just trying to make it simple. To the guys with experience or in the know am I close?

7:30 I think it's okay to play to win the game is played that way. But I'm with you - the coach needs to sit back let the kids figure it out. that's also part of development instead of telling them where they need to be or what they need to do during play unless of course you are switching a formation. Let them play instead of being robots, same goes to the parents.

Player can contact the coach first. Then the restrictions change a bit.

If there is a fit as a sophomore a VERBAL offer can be extended/accepted (acceptance is termed a "commit") - but it is not binding on either side.

Anonymous said...

8:26 and 8:13 and why are the kids not trying moves? My guess is they are scared to or confused by all the in game instructions being provided. I agree you can see a shift - now you just need Ellis or who ever will be the coach to start playing some new faces and a different style like Sermanni tried.

I disagree with you about our coaches. i think the coaches are doing the right thing when it comes to developing the kids from a technical point of view - now he kids need to make mistakes and learn from them but i guess when you are trying to win those mistakes can hurt. So you have players scared to make moves.

This is why I like the 18+ roster size for ECNL only. If ECNL is to be a DA they need to be allowed to do what ODP has been doing keep the larger roster and allow the kids to compete for playing time. then they need to pass their test.

I also think there should be no state cups or national title played before 16. NPL, ECNL, EDP, Region1 & National leagues have it right form a league and let them play meaningful games while they battle during the week at training to earn that right.

just my opinion

Anonymous said...

8:17 Yes you are close.
Some verbals fall through at times so some late money comes available to later commits, but for the major conferences probably 90% or more of the athletic scholarship money is gone after a classes soph year.
As you say players must be proactive about contacting college coaches and visits on their own dime and a club coach with experience in the process and contacts among college coaches has been there with previous teams thru the process can be a big help in getting the coaches of the schools you are interested in attending out to your games at the college showcase events.

Slow day?

It is a very slow day so let's ask something different.

Who are the top 10 club teams in NJ?

Enough bashing of MF, PDA, Wildcats.

Anonymous said...

Let me pose this question - how many games is too much for a Spring/Summer season? Between league & tournament play what would you say should be max? Figure on season starting end of March/April. So that would be 4 months of play starting then & ending when U14 would start on 8/1. Are there any guidelines on max # of games & max number of practices a team should have per week?

Anonymous said...

According to GS here are your top 10:

1. STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01
2. NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH-NPL
3. PDA STORM
4. PDA AJAX
5. NJCSA GALAXY
6. MF ACADEMY FC NORTH EAST NPL
7. NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI
8. MF ACADEMY FC ECNL
9. TSF ACADEMY 01/02G
10.JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC FUSION

But I think it is more like:

1. PDA STORM
2. MF ACADEMY FC ECNL
3. NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH-NPL
4. PDA AJAX
5. MF ACADEMY FC NORTH EAST NPL
6. PDA DRAGONS
7. STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01
8. NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI
9. NJCSA GALAXY
10.JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC FUSION

Thank you for the list 4:08. What I wanted to say is, who are the top 10 town club teams?
We all know MF, PDA, WC will consist of the TOP 10, but I was curious to see what 10 town teams deserve some respect.

Anonymous said...

USSF said 3:1

10 Fall League
10 Spring League
6 2x August Tournaments
3 1x Columbus Day Tournmanet
3 1x Novemebr End Fall Season
3 1x March Tournament
3 1x April Tournamant
3 1x May/June Tournament
41 Scheduled Games (but I think you can add another 11 to reach 52)

7 tournament x $1,000 (this is on the high side) = $7,000 3 t0 4 players on roster will covert this expense the rest goes to coach and misc club/team expenses.

PS. I don't care how big the roster is

20 Leagues games for top 18 players in games that matter

21 tournament games so every one else gets their 20 games since everyone pays the same amount. I think that's fair. And your in the 3 to 1 ratio

Anonymous said...

Professional men play a 34 game season, NCAA women its 24 games & same for the professional women. I think 25 max per season no more than 50 in a year. As far as practice/training - twice max in season. After month off, once per week during off season plus an exercise regimen. & yes that is what my kid's team does.

Anonymous said...

4:14 I agree if we are talking ECNL becomes next DA then those teams are out of the top 10 lists for good. They will have their league to concentrate on.

1. STA
2. NJ Crush
3. NJCSA Galaxy
4. New Jersey Rush
5. TSF
6. Jersey Shore Boca
7. NJCSA Manalapan
8. Medford
9. FC Copa
10. SDFC Samba

MLS Plays

34 League games
5 Pre Season games?
3+ Lamar Hunt Open Cup games
6+ CCL games
2+ Summer Friendlies
~50 games depending on how good your team is.

EPL teams are different they have a huge roster to cover EPL, CUP and Champions/Europa league games.

No everyone is leaving that one. Post some others. The blue or black team or white team will be the Npl team by default

I think they are expecting a mass showup

Not sure the current players would be looking to go anywhere

But with a team where you know the slots are desired, I would think some team members would have a plan B

For PA teams:

I'm seeing mid April tryouts for most. I'm sure clubs will all try to keep these close together.

PF may pick up one or two, will still be a solid team but behind Legacy. Classics not much change with Legacy so close by. Legacy will have the best turnout and become even stronger when they cut/add a few. Rage may get some FC Rev players and improve some. CFC roster will not improve.

Anonymous said...

Mass Exodus? Why? It's a solid age group Matchfit has. Why would people be leaving? I think someone is trying there best to sabotage this age group. Because your daughter isn't good enough to play there, you shouldn't bash the program and try to corrupt the minds of others.
Parents, see for yourself what a program has to offer. Don't listen to thede fools.

Anonymous said...

Why are you sating PF will behind Legacy & Classics? when they will be ahead of ODP once ECNL becomes DA and could careless of PL and Classics same for CFC Delco and FC Bucks. Why is PA so blind?

Anonymous said...

7:34

Not the original poster but let me interject. 10:53 did not say PF will be behind Classics, re-read the post. Please try to understand 99% of these girls play soccer to win, that comes with assembling the most talented overall team, and that team then gets referred to as being "on top" by most rational observers, at least until they lose. By that standard PL will likely stay "on top" in PA next year. By your standard which is some arbitrary concept in your head, maybe not. And that's a big speculation you are making about the girls DA. Sorry but again, no way they put 2 in the same town of west Chester. Right now the ODP regional team trumps ECNL, id2, et al. IF some thing changes we can talk.

Anonymous said...

Where are you seeing that PF/ECNL will become a DA? That's just speculation!

Anonymous said...

8:33 You are correct, I didn't see the period. My bad :(

I don't argue PL being at the top of PA ranks. I am just saying "IF" and it looks like it will ECNL becomes Girls DA in goes straight past ODP are you saying this is False if this happens? and if it goes past ODP I think we both agree that will change the landscape in PA.

Speculation -for sure based off of the below:

NCAA changes to Fall/Spring Schedule

Gulati has a good relationship with ECNL

ECNL is US Club's Top YOUTH league

US Club Soccer adds PAyne who "For many years held key positions with U.S. Soccer, serving on the board from 1999-2014 and still maintaining his position as board member and vice chairman of the U.S. Soccer Foundation."

early tryouts and pressure kids to commit before they have a chance to go elsewhere.

Anonymous said...

9:51 why pressure?

If your kid is offered a spot after tryouts ask your current coach if your kid has a spot -if they can't answer that then you know they are on the chopping block if better kids come along your kid is gone. It's how the game is played. If your kid is a major part you will know that as well.

If you are worried about having your kid "commit" before a chance else where -then you are on the wrong team and you need to leave.

Just this yahoo's opinion.

Anonymous said...

Best to just go to the tryouts where you will accept a spot. But true - if the current team's situation is murky you may have to ask them some questions on where you stand.

Nobody wants bad news (demotion, cut) to come after all the tryout sessions for other clubs have taken place

Anonymous said...

If you go try out for another club, your current club will find out about some how. Better to either stay with your club or try out for a club you are willing to go to, if offered.

Anonymous said...

If your going to tryouts other than the team your on, you might as well pack your bags because you are gone from your current team

Anonymous said...

Or when other players find out it will start a frenzy and everyone else will start going to other tryouts which could cause the team to fold.

Anonymous said...

No it doesn't mean that! Geesh

Anonymous said...

a kid should be free to tryout anywhere without retribution from the team.. teams bring in tryout players all year, they don't turn kids way at tryouts.. what's the difference?

Anonymous said...

2:35 I agree with you 100%.

The difference is and this is just this yahoo's opinion.

Some parents try to do it on the sneak tip all hush hush. I believe, if you tell the coach why you are doing what you are doing they will never have a problem with what you are doing as long as it's not negative and you don't put them on the defensive.

Crazy time of year, where girls that are ready or think they are ready will try to make a move so they can improve themselves and their new team. Unfortunately, someone gets the short end of the stick and they are usually really good soccer players,it just happens that sometimes kids that are better come along.

No stress - just business as usual - there is always a level and a team for every kid.

Anonymous said...

There will be late movement after early tryouts are over after existing players from pre-ecnl teams are dropped to B teams due to new out of club players taking their spots.
Others will see that while they are offered a chance to stay on team it will be in a reduced role and maybe even result in often not dressing for events due to expanded rosters so many will move for that reason as well.
Their will be more movement overall at this years tryouts for U14 than at any other year.

Anonymous said...

Problem is non ECNL teams are mostly full, even overly so.....

There are more and more families each year entering the club soccer experience.

Anonymous said...

Maybe but a girl not already playing premier soccer by this age likely isn't good enough to make the top team at a premier club. So they're just placed on a B or C team. Won't affect the top teams. only players on top teams moving to another club team will make any difference.

Anonymous said...

4:36 you are wrong.
their are top players on many teams who could step right in and earn a spot on the A Teams. Some who haven't even stepped away from their local teams yet but are outstanding prospects and athletes. Yo wold be surprised it's only U13 and their is still much time left to develop players.

Anonymous said...

PDA about ready to get Match Flecce troubled player this fall.

Anonymous said...

4:36 is not wrong. unless your talking about a premier team that has lost a lot of its skilled core players, and has accepted that it will be a developmental year with good athletes. You then have to have parents that are willing to pay the price and commit the time of having their daughters play with girls that are learning on the fly. FC Revolution went this route and brought their whole "B" team up. It is why its skilled players left last year, and more players are leaving this year. Parents like to see their daughters challenged at practice by other top level players. There is nothing wrong with having a team full of club level players that are overly physical and can kick the ball really far , sometimes the Wildcats do well with it.

As far as wishing we could be proud wearers of the powder blue? isn't that the San Diego Chargers colors also? Hmmm, another team that does well sometimes and never wins the big games. Thanks for bringing up the parallel though. I am from none of those teams you mentioned and still trying to figure out how "your slip is showing" applies to my comments. But lets just say we ended in a tie ( so it will be just like a win for you).

Anonymous said...

6:12

You bring up a good point
"Parents like to see their daughters challenged at practice by other top level players"

What are you to do if this is what your team is facing? Only 2-3 players that can challenge one another. Is it time to look elsewhere is terms for your own daughters progress, or do you stick it out and for how long?

Anonymous said...

Training in a team setting is only as good as the weakest links. It's why town based teams all break apart at some point. The good players and their parents understand this and leave.

Anonymous said...

9:12 Believe me we all know the team and club you are from.
It's the team that was at the top but now has fallen so far, and has only bitterness and jealousy for those who have replaced them.

Anonymous said...

Why are you so obsessed with another team?? Only thing I would be worried about is if your team did NOT get additional players that wanted to be on your team. Staying the same will get old and the ones that made adjustments will move on to a higher level of play.

Again, not about how it goes U13. The short sided programs ALWAYS fall behind when it counts.

Sorry guys, but FC DELCO players cup is the only major with it's applied list public, so this is the only one I can have some fun with. For the GS people - I know points don't mean anything but it is a little fun to talk about. Below are the GS top 5% teams and how many points they bring to their bracket as of today. Of course this will change a lot as NY CUP & NJ CUP will be done, PA NCS will be done, JEFF CUP& PDA will be done. I see 8 teams that will bring 10,000 to their flight and they are not top flight teams. looks like it's going to be a deep tournament with only one more week to apply we might not see to many more top teams applying with the EDP Cup also that weekend.

I'm sure even with the top flight - I kept PL out of it because I think PF did better vs F1 teams than they did in my opinion. That can easily change if PL has a good Jeff Cup and PF doesn't.

For me NYSC, PDA Ajax can easily slip to F3 and I'm sure CFC Delco pre-ECNL can be placed in F3 or F4. Plus we still don't have some of the PA top teams 1776, PA Classics, Rage and YMS to name a few.

The top 2 flights look like they will be max 10,000 point 8 team flights and if YMS and Rage also apply Flight 3 will be close to 10,000.

By no means is that light from a GS perspective and from a quality of teams they all look good as well

Anonymous said...

What stinks about GS is that they will not include a top tournament like the Greer Jr ECNL event in the beginning of May That's 10,000 GS points that go to no one plus the NE NPL pre-ECNL Fall season left another 10,000 points to go to no one as they will probably give points once instead of twice for Fall and Spring like NYCSL NPL and and NE NPL does.

If you look gotsoccer for PAE after the Jeff Cup things could change. PL and PF will lose Jeff Cup points from last year. If neither of those teams make any points at the Jeff Cup but Rage or YMS does then they could move ahead of PL. There could be a new top team in PAE.
I wonder if one of those teams moves up to #1 on gotsoccer will they promote it on their website and interview the coach about it?

Anonymous said...

On the other hand, if PL were to win Jeff Cup, which I think all 8 teams have a legitimate shot at, they would not only be #1 in PA, but Reg 1, and I think the country as well.

Hey 11:16. you have no idea of what club I am from. Everything you described is exactly opposite of whats going on in my daughters soccer world. She is with one of the top clubs and has to be at her best at each practice, which is what happens when you don't bring "B" players in, or athletic girls with littls soccer skills that can kick the ball really far (sound like what you use to seeing?). Amazingly, your guesswork is even lower than you soccer knowledge. Take another guess and ring your cowbell and show how smart you are (again). You could try the "Are you smarter than a fifth grader game" You might do well there.

1:36 No way dude no one takes GS rankings that seriously.

PAGS fall league no GS points Top flight around 9k).
North East girls NPL no GS points for fall top flight 10K.

As a previous poster said to me apples to oranges is 100% correct.

Some day they might get it right.

Anonymous said...

I agree with 3:32. Taking GS points that seriously would be a huge mistake. GS can sometimes be fairly accurate for the first couple teams ranked. But after that its a total crap shoot, with teams getting points in crap tourneys while using guest players to help win them. GS ranking are fun to look at and some clubs will use them as a marketing tool or to show progress to team parents.

The best part about this is that you and your junior partner (4:24) have no clue what club I'm from or what state. But it is Friday night and you two will be able to discuss it at your usual sausage fest party (don't eat to much). Its even funnier that I could absolutely care less where your daughter plays (and I'm sure she's a very good player), but it's bothering you tremendously. But because I don't agree with your slant on what must be in the soccer world, you know exactly where my daughter plays and at the ready to criticize. Parents must really gather around you during practice to hear your pearls of wisdom that are occasionally dropped. Horses pretty much drop the same pearls of knowledge that you spew here (just out of a different end). What we need is Seth the Soothsayer to come out and help you with your guesses. By the way, where is PDA located anyway? And is one team an "A" and the other a "B". Would like an answer from someone other than the sausage boys.

Wow!! So far PDA and AJAX parents not very well thought of. Must be a NJ thing. By illiterate, do you mean they can't read and spell very well? Or that they just don't agree with you? We played against both teams and the parents might not be able to read and spell, but they were extremely classy during and after games. Except for the one parent in the powder blue wildcat sweatshirt, screaming at his wife that she drove him to the wrong game and that these stupid teams keep passing and can't kick the ball really far.

Thanks dude, my kids team does not get much respect on this board, but that’s fine be me. This is the best club in my area, and my daughter is one of the best on her team, so its all good. But sometimes it just rubs me the wrong-way, it should not, but it just does. Occasionally, someone says something positive, which I appreciate, but all this negativity is really tiresome and repetitive. The girls try to improve themselves at every practice, and as long as my daughter wears her current uniform I will constantly support her, and her club.

Great post 5:29. This PA parent is happy to see your comments regarding parents mainly concerned about supporting their daughters in what they love to do. Your post has inspired me to quit needling the the two tweedles and stay more positive. I truly admire the parents that are there for every practice and every game cheering their daughter on, even though she might be more of a support player and not receive as much time or very little at all. I often wonder if I could do the same. I will even stop annoying the Wildcat parent that thinks I'm from PDA. I'm sure he loves to see his daughter playing soccer as much as I do. Most players in any sport hit a ceiling at some point, our wish as parents is to give them a chance not to hit it.

Thanks 6:11, 5:29 here, we are from NY, but it doesn’t matter where we play, we are all equal when it comes to loving our child, and we all support them, and we all care about their experience, since its our experience also. I have smiled with my daughter when she won, and I have shared sadness with her when she was heart-broken, but its my job to keep her positive, and to make sure she still wants to compete with the regions best. No one knows when this journey will end, but we all want this to be a trip of fond memories, thoughts that will carry her through her life, and perhaps someone when she is old she will remember her crazy Dad, and the times they shared together.

Anonymous said...

And she will. I have been through this with two older siblings. They still talk about things they saw during our endless drives to many different destinations. I feel better already now that I'm being positive. Come you wildcat parents, we can be friends now. Hell, you may even find out you like PA parents, PDA parents and MF parents.

I do not think players from Fusion would come to PL, but a PL parent and player willing to give up a lot time (4 hours combined practice and drive, for three nights a week), might make the trip to PF. Really good relationship between the clubs, with parents and players from both clubs getting together for indoor and futsal events. I guess that hour and fifteen minute drive between clubs is a good buffer zone. As they say. Great fences make great neighbors. Classics and Legacy only two miles apart...Hmmm.

Yes indeed, don't forget granny? Although I think she's dead now. But wait!! We could just put her in a powder blue uniform and lean her up against the post. It would simply be one more Wildcat defender in the box (although that would make it twelve). Of course someone else would have to come along and kick it really far. But with everyone in the box that shouldn't be a problem. Wildcat dads hitting on granny would be a problem too. At least they would finally find a willing partner that they don't have to pay.

Same could be said of many ECNL teams, and dozens of teams that aren't, but no one else avoids top tournaments like this team/club. And if the performance at regionals last year is any indication, thats not a fish he's trying to fry, its a whale. You think FCV doesn't want a national championship? Yet there they are playing top teams, getting better with every tournament.

No this club focuses on marketing which leads to recruitment which leads to their real objective $$$!
Losing is bad for the bottom line, so they play as little as possible. Their incredible college placement will eventually bring in the top girls that the lack of player development and lack of winning don't. Too bad a lot of the current players won't be around to see it.

i understand the grasping for straws but winning or losing in a tournament to other teams has no meaning for this club.

Unlike the small clubs, their objective is on a different planet.

I know as parents you want to say they are afraid but they just have no time for what you find important.

unfortunately, that seems to be the truth and the rest is just grasping for straws.

They have 3 teams in this tournament already would you rather them put their 4th team and then we could read posts about how they shouldn't be in the top flight and the only reason they are in the top flight is because it's their tournament.

OR if they put them in the 2nd flight then we would read they are avoiding all the top teams to rack up GS points.

Which is it? Could they move their schedule around sure, it looks like they didn't so - what's the beef that top flight is Money - I out WC there but they will probably be a 2nd flight team - wasn't sure on the 8th team.

I never said PDA was the best. That's a pretty subjective term, based on the individual goals of a player and her parents. Not every kids biggest dream in life is a partial scholarship to play soccer at Rutgers.

Surprising(actually not) how quickly people defend the practice of coaches recruiting off of other teams active rosters, an unethical practice so frowned upon it could result in a coach losing his license.

Often these coaches promise the moon and stars to players/parents, starting position, playing time, college connections, reduced or no club fees, etc. to get them to defect. By the time they realize half of that was just B.S. they've already burnt the bridge.

And let's not forget, many players and sometimes entire teams also leave PDA every year as well. They obviously view the situation elsewhere to be better too, works both ways.

And 2:02 is right, while PDA has spent years developing bad blood with most of NJ,MF has been developing positive relationships with surrounding clubs. PDA is living off a reputation they earned years ago when they held an all but monopoly on well educated coaches and quality facilities. Not the case anymore.

And who ranked them "best" and on what criteria? Best at expanding the sport by providing quality soccer training to as many kids as possible regardless of income? Best at providing these girls with a positive experience they will look back on and cherish? Best at developing top quality national team caliber players? Best at developing teams who can be successful on a national stage? Or best at recruiting quality players developed by other programs, many who already have made reg/nat team or have college commitments, and then using them as marketing tools to recruit the next batch of fat wallet suckers, um I mean well meaning parents?

And by the way, our club hasn't won a national title either, but at least all our kids play every weekend.

5:55. You are right. PDAS is best at all of those. Both good and bad.

6:24 so are telling me that if your kid's club had writes up calling them the number 1 girls club for a couple of years in a row they should ignore it and not leverage it? for real?

RCL

Region1 CL continues this week with 3 games scheduled. Last week South Shore jumped on top of the Red table by winning their first 2 games. This week VESC plays 2 games, I don't see them getting any points from these 2. PL vs GB is not a must win situation but with only 5 games to be played every win is huge.

Northeast NPL - Pre-ECNL

This flight is notsending their champion 2 INDIANA, However the top 4 qualify for a playoff (I hate playoffs). PF has a huge match up vs Boston,awin and they tie Boston for 4th a loss and they find themselves 6 points out. WC, Albertson & FSA are in a similar boat must win situations if they plan on advancing to the post season.

The NPL flight also starts this weekend, this flight will also have a playoff (I hate playoffs) with their champion booking a ticket to INDIANA. Boston, FSA & PF all have must win games. PF appears to have a schedule glitch with games in PA & MA 45 minutes a part. Unless they plan on expanding their roster and having a split squad ortheir Pre-ECNLteam playing their NPL game in MA. Sure that will be ironed out if it's a schedule glitch. PDA North (aka Dragons), MF NPL & PDA South (aka Ajax) should all open upthe Spring with wins.

With not a lot of outside practice due tin the weather I could see some upsets early on.

Anonymous said...

Doesn't PF NPL use players from the PreECNL team? They should be able to play both of those games in PA and MA the same day.

All MA and CT games have been cancelled for the weekend. They have been rescheduled.

Matchfit ECNL team playing in the u14 bracket

Anonymous said...

anyone think Maps Spring will go off this weekend or be cancelled? I am thinking cancelled?

Anonymous said...

What no killing MF ECNL for playing up and avoiding the NJ teams in the u13 flight?

Anonymous said...

Nope. Why? Because they can beat all those teams unlike Storm trying to dodge the top teams in the age group! BOOM

Anonymous said...

Very difficult to beat teams that play 5-6 defenders who are taught to just kick it as far as they can the minute the ball comes to them. Just saying.

Anonymous said...

Really? okay, you told me you did.

Still looks like MF ECNL is avoiding them? Besides that u14 flight IS SO MUCH STRONGER great development there, right?

Anonymous said...

1;35 if the girls are learning to play fast 1 or 2 touch soccer - It doesn't matter how many defenders they have they'll be running after the ball the entire game, if the team can play 1 and 2 touch soccer if they can't well then yes it is very difficult to beat teams like that if you play the same way.

The black team is their 3rd team at that level and they deserve to be there. They've beaten two of the three teams they've faced in their bracket. Why as an organization would you put your top team there? The only competition for the ECNL team in this bracket is STA. This is an early season local tournament where the parents don't have to travel far so the coach is looking to challenge his players by playing them up against faster competition. You're an idiot if you think this coach is trying to avoid anyone. Show me anywhere he's backed down from anyone. Don't put him in the same category as pda.

How many games did PDA lose in Fall Pre-ECNL league?
That's right ZERO!!! Awful team hahahahaha

Man I am sick of hearing that excuse! Total B.S.

Oh, and good for MF challenging themselves against bigger competition.

Anonymous said...

1:44 I don't think they are avoiding NJ Crush and STA - NJ NCS Semi-Finalists.

I know they are avoiding them because they are playing against easier teams at u14. if it quacks like a duck then it must be a ???

1:54

They are playing
NJ #17 VERNON SC STORM
NJ #27 NJCSA NPL 00 - STARS

and probably NJ#7 NJ CRUSH FC STORM

but you are right so much tougher than the below how stupid of me.


NJ #1 STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01
NJ #5 NJCSA GALAXY
NJ #7 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI
NJ #14 MANALAPAN NJCSA ELITE

Didn't say tougher, said bigger. Add older and more experience too if u like. Lots of different types of teams out there, might challenge you in different ways. Oh wait , you wouldn't know that. One game a week, on perfect turf, against min physical pass and possess teams. No wonder you get your butts kicked when u step outside that cute little bubble. Guessing a lack of depth contributed to tournament woes as well.

Good for all the teams that just face all comers and keep on getting better.
