U16 (2002) Girls Youth Soccer

U16 young women players are not playing for fun, they are playing to win.

Best to step aside, because they are about to barrel through...

You suspect? You suspect shit, there are other weak DA’s, such as Mid-America and Northwest, are both not exactly lighting-it-up. Personally, I take pride in the region 1, which includes you PF and PDA jerk-offs, so welcome to the club!

Anonymous said...

Region 1 in a very strong region. On many levels. Sad thing is the best teams in the region are not GDA. I think PDA's top non-GDA team could beat their GDA team. Shh, don't tell anyone, thats a secret, a very poorly kept and well known secret. No worries though, the PDA implosion will happen in the Spring. More mergers coming. This should be interesting. Amazing how talkative some high level club coaches get when they have a few beers in them especially when they are down south in say North Carolina. LOL

I think highschool is a bigger deal in reg 1. But some DAs let kids play high school. Make comments after the showcase.

5 reasons why its in the top 5

1. If you even have a niece, why would you wish her luck on an anonymous blog
2. Is your 16 year old "niece" even reading this blog
3. Because it is anonymous how would your niece even know its you wishing her well
4. Why don't you just go on Facebook and wish her good luck just like the many spouses that go on and wish their significant other happy anniversary or birthday when they are probably sitting right next to them when typing and could tell them in person.
5. Or here is a great idea, why don't you just call her directly. People really need to be able to speak to each other. It is a lost art.

As much as I like the stallions org - each time they send out a braggy newsletter about their team beating a B team from another club (Lonestar or Legends) it just makes me vomit in my mouth. A pilot DA team with no DA players - that is not a DA team. Beating an ECNL team is not a challenge any more.

Focus on hard work, good college placement - but don't publish fake results - you will lose your fans.

The DA result of 14-1 over Cedar Stars is relevant to this blog as those teams are a mix of 2002 and 2001 players at U17 DA competition. Both U16 and U17 blogs are relevant to U17 DA teams as they are all a combination of U16 and U17 players. There are no separate DA Teams for U16 age group.

Heard a great (true) story yesterday about 03 PDA DA team. Basically PDA coaches got caught trying to cheat, right in front of the USSF brass. During one of their games, their GK was injured and taken out for concussion protocol, but for whatever reason, they did not roster their other GK for the game. So, in priceless PDA style they tried to sneak her into the game, instead of throwing a field player with a pinny into the goal....priceless. Anyway, they got caught, and were prevented from doing so, but then they began to argue with the officials, who got on his phone and called the VP of USSF over to the game, who said NO to PDA, hahahaha. That was a waste of almost 20 minutes, and a disgrace to the other team, the showcase, US Soccer, and this country.

Yours in sports, cheers!

Anonymous said...

7:23 Not sure why you're making fun of concussions. My daughter went through 3 concussions and its not something I wish upon anyone.

The concussion protocol is flawed, it favors the team that causes a concussion by requiring a mandatory 10 minute off for the player and does not allow for a temporary player substitution or in some scenarios any substitution

GDA has a limited number of substitutions (5?) and substitution chances (3?). If you exhaust either - you are not allowed to put players on the field - regardless of whether they are rostered or not. Extremely embarrassing! Ha ha.

If US soccer is serious about preventing concussions - they should require that both teams take a player off the field, and hand out red cards and player fines.

Agreed with this 03 stuff. wtf. Here is how I see it at U16 going into winter then the busy, busy spring for all our girls. If not committed to college, which most are not at this age, go to ECNL, DA or National League. If you think your girl is good enough for the scholarships. Even if you go only for the next year or so to get committed. Am I correct once you are committed you can just ask your college coach where to play? From what I have seen with my own eyes and hear constantly is that the DA and ecnl is where the DI coaches go. Newss had a lot of DIII and some DII, but to really get into DI you should be, at this age grouping, looking for ecnl, da or national league play at the least. npl, edp, and others just do not cut it at this age if not committed.

Head Injury rules - a total mess!

https://ussoccer.app.box.com/s/59z6v2gpbx62jhq63gkgfzpyj75hom2y

A team may only make a temporary substitution if they have at least one substitution and one substitution moment remaining. In the event there are multiple players being evaluated with head injuries from the same team at the same time, that team cannot make more temporary substitutions than the number of substitutions and substitution moments that team has remaining. For example, if two players from the same team receive head injuries at the same time, that team needs two available substitutions, but only one available moment because the injury to both players occurred at the same time (injured players that are cleared can re-enter at separate stoppages.)

@ 10:26. That is important to be on the right team. But also going to the right tournaments, emailing coaches, and ID camps. I do agree college coaches are impressed when players are on good teams like ECNL or DA

Anonymous said...

9:57 So, what are we making fun of?

Coach that used all the subs because it was a showcase game? Not sure how many are allowed - but the report suggests that they used 6.

Meanwhile the other team only used 2 subs - and in fact it was the other team that had "not rostered" their goalie. Someone on this 2002 is smoking a lot of crack.

Anonymous said...

Not true 10.26 many many d1 coaches at casl every game at main site where top 3 flights all had games. Many NPL teams played in those flights.

Anonymous said...

@12:22, agreed. At CASL, sometimes Bethesda because still in college/HS season. Disney, Jeff Cup, PDA showcase. Those 5 at least is good to get DI coaches especially in top brackets. But, for league play, at U16, if not committed I still feel ecnl, DA and nat league are best. NPL has become 3rd to 4th tier. And again it all depends on funds available and location as well. It is not anyone's fault, but I have stated this before, way too much, college coaches have to make best use of time throughout year. And certainly it is a coaches, players, and parents job to email coaches and invite to these tournaments. If not college coaches are typically not just going to show up.

Ugh, weekend could of gone a little better, the team was overmatched at some spots, and at that level, you need your top 11 in the entire game, you just do. From what I saw, the other teams were there to kick-ass, and develop by doing just that. One bunch only had 14 girls, but they were probably their best 14. One local team that is mentioned here occasionally had 22 doing warm-ups right next to us, hahaha, priceless, would love to be a fly at that team dinner, hahaha. Another local team, who shall remain name-less, had some hack-machines on the field, guess Christmas supervised-release came early?

very true 2:52.

only 18 could roster per game so bringing 22 means that they were switching out kids for various games. keeps some kids fresh for the games and also gets kids face time in front of coaches. isn't that what this is all about? very few teams have top to bottom high level kids although there are some. this was a showcase. some clubs showcase their talent by playing top kids to win and some showcase their kids some of which are not top talent by playing them to get looks.

june are the playoffs. that's when only the best should play, but it's youth soccer so probably for many teams there will be soft roster spots playing. be happy you are near the finish line of all this dookie.

in college, only the best see the field game time; unless it's a scrimmage. this isn't a club coach who can play anyone and still have a job next season. a college coach has accountability to their athletic director and trustees. This is all about the $$$. every kid kicking a ball no matter what level is another $ in the soccer system purse.

2:52 you got part of it right it's mostly the parents who attack teams.
It's usually for one of the following two reasons.

1-Their player was cut or not played as much as they wanted and they left the team they now hate.

2 - The team they hate has pretty consistently beat their dear daughters team and they hate the team, coach and parents for that.

It's really insanity and pathological but that's youth soccer.

or their kid is still on the team and not playing as much as daddy and mommy think she should be playing. spots open up as people read the blogs and leave, kids move up the roster in their minds. crazy as well.

5:27 So the coach is always right? Why do they hate, maybe they are just sharing their experience so others can see? I do agree there are others that will post to make the x-club or the other teams look bad and make fun of their results.

4:46 I agree - but I doubt we have anyone posting from Maine and Vermont. I agree most posters are from NY, NJ, PA, MD, DE, VA and CT.

If the team with 22 players has committed players and they are playing over non-committed players - is that an issue for you since players that are spoken for are getting face time with coaches instead of the ones that need the face time since this was a showcase as you said? This is not college - these are college placement teams where there is a cost (high $$) to be seen. As you said lots of $$$$ being made at the expense of many players not given a fair opportunity.

2:52 You showcase your players regardless of the result of these scrimmages.

8:26 I agree that would suck if the 14 players were already committed and players were left at home. So when you say your top 11 are you talking about showcase events that are used to place players in college programs or league games that determine advancement?

Anonymous said...

When I say top 11, I mean the best 14 girls on our team on the field, the get a positive (win) result. Everyone wants to win at these things, everything tastes better, the sky is more blue, the beer goes down smoother, the hotel beds are more comfy, everything. Unfortunately, playing the best 11 means 2-3 girls are not getting in, and yeah I know its a showcase, the smug looks from some of the winning parents is infuriating.

Anonymous said...

No 11:34 it's not a showcase in your world.

A true showcase is a scrimmage to benefit the college coaches nothing more.
We all know scrimmages are used to try some new things regardless of the result. I agree games are played to be won and they still will be but it's a scrimmage or don't call it a showcase since not everyone is being showcased.

I get why people are scared to give everyone a chance since it will make coaches look bad for playing the wrong players. make parents panic that other players are doing the same thing as their kid when they are given an opportunity.

What is the difference between player 1 and player 18? About 60 minutes! player 1 has 60 minutes to figure out what's not working. Player 18 has 60 minutes less to play and not make a mistake because if they do posters like you are labeling them as not starting Xi material and we all know once you start thinking what do i need to do instead of playing you already lost.

So which are you? A coach scared he would look like he has no idea what he's doing or a parent that is scared that other players would look better if they are given the same opportunity?

There is no harm in showcasing every player and giving them all the same length leash.

Re: players that have committed - and their playing time

College coaches want to SEE committed players (those committed to THEM) with their club teams. The showcases are actually pre-tryouts for when the player gets to university level. Any stunning bit of play from a showcase serves as a bump up in the coach's mind of said player.

Or do you expect a soph to commit and the coach that recruited him/her to have no idea at all what has occurred over their late soph-senior seasons - prior to their joining the collegiate squad?

I agree - playing time should be doled out with every player's chances to SHOW in mind - but it is still a pecking order. If your player is too far down that chart - then maybe reconsider how you made the decision to join said team - and what the consequences are.

What was said above of the 30% that do not return for U17 may be true mostly for this reason. Gives the player a chance to play more (after they leave academy with the skillset they have achieved there) and gives OTHERS a shot at that level the following season(s)

Peace and Happy Holidays, all.

Anonymous said...

I agree, but for us there is no going back to HS soccer, the school team is poor at best, and the art teacher isn't cutting it with her tactics, ugh. DA is for a certain type of player, no need to detail that.

9:30 AM of course college coaches want to see players play as do parents.

My question to you is what is a College placement club team's job? Play the committed players or work on the players that do not have a place to play? The committed players have their pie, this is why they should move to the bottom of the rotation. No one is saying don't play them, but they should take over the 20 minute a game role since they are already committed and college coaches can still watch them.

Showcases are scrimmages that allow the players to play in their comfort zone - their club team so the college coaches can look for a fit for their programs.

The sophomore commit is committed an offer wouldn't have been made if the college coach didn't know what they were getting you think they throw around 100k like that? Come on man.

Anonymous said...

What about the college coach who is there to see his investment, commits need to play, and play well in front of their future coaches.

Anonymous said...

6:49 Why make a verbal offer if they are not sure what the player brings to the table? I think you need to give them a little more credit. They are not dummies. Also, how about the other 75 college coaches there to fill positions? To funny yeah the one is more important.

In my opinion a college coach will not offer a scholarship unless they saw what they needed so they can move onto the next position to fill on their team since said player is locked up with a verbal already.

Anonymous said...

You don't think kids can change (either improve or not)? Of course the committed kids need to play too to continue to show their stuff because they only have a verbal.
btw - if showcase games count for league play, coaches should play committed kids too.

Anonymous said...

correct. and coaches change, kids change their minds about what they want academically and if school doesn't have, need to change; so kids may need to change from original school. committed kids still need to play.

Anonymous said...

2:53 what are we talking about Showcase games or league games where advancement is on the line? BIG DIFFERENCE!

If a team plays both - what's your concern? The committed player plays in the league games (I'm guessing they don't come out) do you also want them to play major minutes in Showcase events like CASL, Disney, Jefferson and PDA?

I'm not following. If you are talking about GDA that's apples to oranges with this post.

My point - is in a showcase (scrimmage) the committed player should play a lesser role or not dress if roster is over 18 since these games mean nothing to them.

Anonymous said...

3:32 then don't make a commitment. Why give your WORD when it means nothing!
Coaching changes will happen nothing a player or the coaching losing their job can do about that. Seniors are safe everyone else well you shouldn't have committed then if that is a concern.

Anonymous said...

3:38 those games don't count toward anything; so yes uncommitted kids need to get majority of time. But ECNL showcase games do and the recent GDA showcase games do as well for post season play. so for those that it does matter, they should play. also looks good for uncommitted kids to have coaches watch them in champs league or post season then not.

Anonymous said...

3:44 you obviously have not been down this road before. a coach leaving is never in the control of the athlete. you need to have safety schools in case. not everyone picks the school for the school. some pick the program/coach. and yes, they leave and kids are then given an opportunity to decommit if they choose. many transfer after a coach leaves. it's just what happens.

she's very good, but she's 11. my kid was playing basketball at 11 and was pretty darn good. now she plays hoops for relaxation. a lot of things change especially in girls from 11 to 18.

Heard a rumor that the World Class NT player was heading to NYCFC, if true, would be great for them, she is a great player.

Womens softball seriously considering following lacrosse (boys, I think) lead and requiring coaches to wait til September of junior year before discussing recruitment with athletes.

Could very well be that soccer follows.

3:07 isn't NYCFC girls program the World Class A team like SkyBlue PDA is the PDA A team and Fury FC is the Albertson A team? This way they kept their ECNL teams.

Launching in Spring 2017 and in conjunction with NYCFC Youth Affiliate World Class FC, the New York City FC Girls Academy will join the U.S Soccer Development Academy. The Academy will play out of World Class FC’s Orangeburg location, one of the nation’s top soccer-specific facilities, and opposite the Club’s under-construction City Football Academy elite training facility.

Anonymous said...

No, NYCFC has flown players in from all over the world to be part of this program. There is not 1 player on the NYCFC teams that has ever played for, or has ever seen a WCFC player. They are 2 totally separate and distinct clubs.

Anonymous said...

I guess that rumor is that

a) she wants to play DA in September and yield the rest of her HS seasons

and/or

b) Rutgers wants her to play DA ahead of her attending and playing in E Brunswick.

Anonymous said...

Or USSF wants to play DA because the coaching at WCFC is average at best. Complete waste of her talent playing for a mid-level ECNL team, in the universally accepted B league.

Yup.

10,000 GotSoccer Points bonus. But not player but the team. This should make things interesting. Glad to see GDA joining the rankings game.

I can probably answer a few of your questions. Can the ECNL teams at albertson or PDA beat their respective DA teams? That's why NT player at WC stayed where she's at. Coach and team are the two reasons period.

Anonymous said...

She has been playing with some of these girls since town soccer, and given that she has already pledged to Butgers, she has no interest, or need to move to a program where is not the best on the team. Some kids need more of a challenge, some don't, it's that simple. NYCFC would be a stronger team with her, but without her, WC ECNL would have trouble beating Albertson and PDA B teams.

Anonymous said...

The assertion is that PDA ECNL would beat PDA GDA. Same with WC ECNL and NYCFC GDA. Even if you look at YSR rankings - holds true at younger age groups.

Hahahaha, yeah sure, whatever.

Exactly what part of what-ever, do you still not comprehend? The what, or the ever, or the hyphen?

4:14 I agree with you she will be missed. But the depth they have they'll still beat both those teams.

Anonymous said...

Perhaps 10:38, only time will tell, but the bigger question is, even with her they could not advance against the top teams in the ECNL playoffs. I simply don’t think their midfield is fast enough, although they are not slow by any means, at the top levels you need speed in the middle to create.

Anonymous said...

At top level you need speed every position and not just speed, but soccer iq. you don't know where to go if you don't know where to go. some of the coaches don't have it either. hard to watch.

Anonymous said...

I agree. However, when you watch the college game -so many players play the ball back into pressure (no soccer IQ), or dribble way to much and what was on is no longer on because of those extra touches and these are the elite players that were recruited and are getting $$$ to player college soccer.

My daughter is a top ECNL player and is very interested in going to a top academic D3 school. She places more value on her education then she does soccer. She realizes academics will get her much farther with where she wants to go in life and I don't see anything wrong with that . Glad she's wise enough to make smart decisions that aren't based on a pipe dream .

Really, you felt the need to type that? Here is a big secret, but please keep to yourself, 99.7% of ECNL and GDA feel exactly the same way. I guess misery loves company...

At least MF won 2 games in older age groups against B sides of DA teams.

On that note, see that they roster over 25 players on older teams. Do they flip a coin to figure out who goes? Does mf play uncommitted kids or just go for win vs gda b teams?

The Orangeburgers should beat Orlando City today, OC is 1-8 and got crushed by Maryland United, so 1-2 isn’t too bad for our semi-favorite ECNL team...

Anonymous said...

This is why these ECNL tournaments are never fair, Jacksonville has just finished their season, WC had 1 ECNL game before Sanford, against a lousy FSA team, who did not bother to even go to Sanford, even though 60% of their team was already in Florida, but that is another saga, for another day...

Not that I am any kind of stable genius, but my soccer-tip is already 50% true about WCFC, look for them to lose a close game against Concord Fire today, 1-0....

See, I told ya they would win 5-1, good job you orangeburggers!

Anonymous said...

Good job WCFC, 2-1 is very respectable. However, I think you should thank the DA for softening-up all the teams you played against, except Tampa who did not go DA. Orlando and Concorde both depleted by DA, still good job in Sanford, carry on...

Anonymous said...

Very true. But we also have to thank the showing of coaches who were on their sideline this weekend. No different from last year prior to DA. #ECNLstillgotit

Anonymous said...

No one said that there weren't going to be many coaches there, I knew there would be. However, this is a long-term process, and does staying ECNL help your daughter prepare for the grid of college soccer? Does taking 3 months off in the fall to chase around the rec. players really help your child? Personally, I think USSF and ECNL could reached an agreement to create the top league in this country, now that process is slowed, and some say fractured for years.

Lots of GDA clubs are running their of showcases. Penn Fusion and VDA in feb. Mich Hawks in Jan. Lots of practice, better setup than the GDA win-at-all-costs games and select coaches coming.

PF and VDA showcases are same weekend. PF probably has all the coaches in the bag. VDA does not have a list posted yet

Anonymous said...

Most programs have more than one coach. So, any attending PF can also attend VDA. Plus, Plus VDA will have all the southern state school most likely as well as the VA schools.

Jeff Cup U16 is showcase so only 3 games an final will be played. Top flight has 3 divisions of 4 teams with points determining winners. Should be very evenly matched divisions between ECNL and Non-ECNL teams.

ECNL totally lacks quality this year as shown with Florida results.

SJEB Rush vs North United Rush finals - with Rush winning everything.

Maybe McLean or Lehigh or East Meadow will show up with something.

1:03 No horse in the race. Just calling it as I see it. SJEB Rush playing well (on paper!) - but the concern remains that they seem to have more players on the roster than really needed. They could rival most Region 1 GDA teams for sure.

How can you possibly know if they would be competitive with NYCFC, PDA or PF DA teams, please tell us horse-face, we seek knowledge...

11:04 what results from ECNL Florida are you referring to? The PDA tie of Ohio a team that scored 13 in 3 games and only 1 against PDA? Or maybe the non blow out scores against Match Fit and World Class? The Barons are a joke like the Kitty Cats. ECNL teams WILL beat all of you wanna be clowns.

Not to question your enthusiasm, but none of the teams were even covered by top drawer soccer (compared to what it was last year). Only one player from Ohio got mentioned for all of the days of coverage. Its reasonable to assume that someone at the publication already lowered their expectations.
