but there are no freshmen from nj playing at UNC(by far top college soccer program in USA) except ex wildcat, and no freshmen from NJ playing at Princeton(top academic college is USA) except ex wildcat. If you are good enough you will be seen and get the opportunity to play at even the top schools.
And what you saw from your storm sunday was them getting beat.
Funny how you are guilty of exactly what you accuse wildcats of, if wildcats lose you put great significance on that result, but when wildcats win or tie vs even a top tier team you pooh pooh the result and say it has no meaning.Every league, SC or tournament game has meaning to evaluate your team and their performance.EDP League this season has great value as most of top ten in nj are in Central and there are many head to head battles of significance to establishing current pecking order in NJ.If edp is meaningless then how come you continue to repeat wildcats 4th place finish last season as proof of their not being top tier.Wouldn't a higher finish in this currents seasons obviously tougher and deeper edp central flight prove their moving up. You talk out of both sides of your mouth. Go back and figure out why you lost 0-6 this weekend.
Yes, The Disgruntled Oracle from Freehold/Manalapan talks and then answers his own questions. His new nickname is Sybil(didn't she have 16 personalities in the movie?).
Hang your hat on TWO names. I will hang mine on the thousands of kids playing top college ball with the others. Good luck.
Wildcats, do you have any alumni on USWNT?
$199 for the bench players. Top players less alot less. Fact
1:36 those are certainly not the only 2 by any means.Just showing that you can be seen by even the very top programs if you are good enough. It depends on the level of the individual player, not the club.
1:12 Hello pot...You came in 4th last season and considered yourself better than all 3 teams that finished ahead of you. You totally dismissed the EDP results.Now, you want to use them to prove your worth?Your SC loss to Boca more defining then a meaningless regular season win. You can't have it both ways.
Oracle what is your evaluation of your new entities 0-6 result last weekend?do you think strong players should move to your team still?How are you spinning that result to your prospective recruits?
I was actually glad when the blog was full to capacity at 5,000 posts. It MADE the Wildcats have to shut up for 30 seconds. Now that there is room for more blogs that have monopolized the last two days on the blog and its getting old, quick.Lets move on PLEASE I'm tired of reading about them
Couple pages ago pda played friendlies to get ready for league/tournament play and now that you lost league games are for development. Also if the landscape is going to change to such a degree what does that say about current pda development? Take the best from surrounding teams and then claim you develop the best. Try and be consistent with the excuses please.
You act like Wildcats lost to a township C team. BOCA might not be best in state but they are respected and have some very nice players. Move on.
Look Oracle all real games have meaning(as we have said all along). Waiting for your spin on your 0-6 beat down.why are we not discussing your progress on your new Team/combo/entity and your new managing venture?will someone from other team please give detailed report on Oracle's new team/teams and their performance in his most recent disaster.What have you EVER accomplished in youth soccer to feel qualified to comment on these highly competitive programs.
I am confused about the Oracle.Is he the coach of Manalapan or is he the former Freehold/Wildcats coach that went to Manalapan?
Nj at pda tournament this weekend. Total wins 0. Yes thats going to be zero. Nj only competitive in Nj.Smart move by Mf not going, save the embarrassment.
Yes he is the past manager of many teams,ex freehold/ex wildcat/ex manalapan/ now trying to form new entity of manalapan/eb/njsa and who knows who else.As you can see from his posts he constantly spins back and forth with convoluted logic. If you win it means nothing, if you lose game has tremendous significance. Answers his own questions and claims people posted things that were never posted by anyone from that team to fit his agenda. Hold endless vendettas and grudges.
Great game this past Sunday between NYSC and WCFC Charlton. Both teams had chances to score, but solid defense and midfield play from both kept the game even. P.S. Charlton has the dubious task of playing against the Hotshotz in NY Cup, good luck girls!
2:04 Let us know how it goes!!
Right on to the 2nd 1:48. I wonder how the Wildcat parents or club in general feel about all this attention, most of which is negative? From the few that I know there & what I hear from others, it's a wonderful group of dedicated girls with strong families supporting them. Their coach is fortunate to have them. It's a shame & I'll leave it at that. & whoever the "Oracle" is I am not him or her so please do not come back at me with an "oracle" this or "oracle" that response.
How what goes?
You mean the Cup game, not sure too many on this board care about NYE, or our State championship.But since you ask, I think its going to be a great game, WC beat them last, but the Hotshotz are really good, they will be tough on the smaller field. I hope Charlton wins, but its only a quarter-final, we shall see...
Anyone have thoughts on mandatory, continued training for "elite" players through July and August? Does this increase risk of injury or burnout as many experts say could happen for kids at this age?
Who is instituting mandatory summer training?
Children need a break, and yes, my daughter is taking a month off from soccer, doing what kids do, swim, hike, play sports other than soccer, make new friends, and a month away from us doesn’t hurt, either.
Does this Oracle come to your games. Yell at refs, kids and other parents. Does he yell at your players in the parking lot after games. Wildcats can continue to blame mythical creatures for their classeless self promoting ways.
Also, how do other teams handle training if playing in summer tournaments?
Oracle we are waiting for report on YOUR game last week.If you want to throw stones you have to make sure you don't have a glass house.After 0-6 result it sounds like you have a glass defense.
Maybe they didn't bring the right combination of girls from Manalapan/EB/NJSA -Stars & Cedar.Am I missing anyone?
Dont forget old bridge also
has anyone compiled a list of dates and times of tryouts?
"Don't forget old bridge alsoApril 8, 2014 at 2:57 PM"Like that matters.
All tryouts will be easy to find on team websites. Never seen so much talk about an EDP season game. I guess it wasn't too windy or sunny. Wildcats are desperate and pathetic. Classless organization Agree with earlier post that SC will come down to Storm and NJX again. Clearly the two best teams. Interesting question about playing soccer through the summer. I think you need a team of at least 18 players. The tournaments are brutal. Usually very hot, no shade and you have to wait hours between games. I would rather my daughter swim, relax and juggle the ball for 2 months.
Ask Match Fleece Jaguars about Manalapan.
3:44- Are you serious? You got lucky. You know MF dominated 99% of that game.
Come on mf jaguars. Lol. Hang your hat on that one, wow
2:07.... its a joke. i'll leave it at that
What's a joke 4:40? Your point is?
MF jaguars dominated Manalapan. Manalapan got lucky. they are a glorified rec/town team. Not one impressive player on that whole group.
After pda weekend we will have Storm vs Force. Will force beat storm and then will storm claim they rolled over again.Just a glorified scrimmage if they lose. Look out for Force I say.
Wait didn't Manalapan beat both MF Jaguars and PDA Dragons?
MF jaguars are low level team guys come on now. They lose with everybody and training is poor
Why you be deletin my posts? I ain't hurt nobody. jus makin some observations about some crazy folk on here. you got a problem with my diction. that some prejudice shizz. y'all let people say stuff bout other people that nobody can find on this here blog. Homies jus make shizz up. Yo, those PDAs, OVER RATED, the Cats are good, but hated. The X be a dangerous gang lookin to hurt people. The rest a y'all a bunch a scary folks to. I'z gonna be goin game to game tapin some a y'all and makin my own reality show. And I'll get some suckers from all y'all teams misbehavin. I guarantee!
MF Jaguars will all get scholarships, just like Dragons and Ajax.Haven't you seen the posts, it is guaranteed at those clubs even on the B and C teams. Best options around by far.
MF Jaguars are a lower level team indeed. I would disagree with poor training (receiving same training as Falcons), this teams plays soccer. many new players that have to learn system.
5:17 good English , I am sure you will be successful in your reality show. Just make sure you use captions
Falcons are strong team because they were strong already before joining match fit . MF didn't bring any value to that team. Jaguars training and falcons is not the same. And some girls train with other teams in other locations as it is more important to collect registration that do something related to real development
Let the Force be with you....
Yes power among rec teams.
yes, I'm sure that dynamic duo will draw all the top players to their tryouts for their new team/club.Is that going to be part of the new cedar stars njsa combination?
When did Manalapan beat Dragons?
They are both two peas ina pod. Whats that old saying about the company you keep and guilty by association
Will someone please explain who is the manalapan oracle? Is it the coach or the guy who keeps switching teams. Be clearer.
WC for sure pay different fees. It's crazy. Why would a bench player have to pay more? Ridiculous.
Nice try deflecting all the BS in a different direction wildcats
I am not the Oracle you talk about wildcat coach.Again I will say you are truly embarrassing yourself.No respectable parent or player would ever bring there daughter to your team.Again I am not the ex manager or coach or whoever you think has the vendetta against you.Do your team/players a favor and stay off the blog you sound desperate.Coaches who know they have a good thing do not need to blog about it to try to convince people.
Sounds like the mess at Match Fit has startedplayers on the move coach feeling heat from the topbringing new coaches inNJX players taking over spots
Yes, trying to talk people out of coming to try out has to be Force driven.Wildcats recent success and wins over Force and storm has to be tough pill to swallow for force.
I thought njx players were required to stay with team for another year and tryout for black team at u14.Are njx players allowed to tryout for black now for u13 year.Mf must be having trouble holding onto all those players and the $$$.
You are incorrect about that.Must have deleted his post from yesterday.
Kind of makes you wonder who 8:32 is. And I am NOT from WC. Bunch of nuts.
"MF jaguars dominated Manalapan. Manalapan got lucky. they are a glorified rec/town team. Not one impressive player on that whole group" -How did they put 2 in the back of the net on you then?Match Fleece Jaguars stop. You lost 2-1 to Manalapan. Shouldn't you be at the fields cleaning up trash before the Falcons show up.
wow the kids get to play soccer here? Or is it just a drama forum for the parents and coaches. maybe they're not as good as they say they are if there's this much sheez happenin.
Predictions for PDA tournament this weekend anyone?How will jersey teams do compared to jefferson cup?
Jaguars will get the last laugh when college coaches come a calling in a few years.
Shaguars , the only college coach calling that team is from the college of hard knocks. The only time those players will touch the ball in a big game is when Falcons on NJX kick it out of bounds. MF seriously regrets putting this team in NJ Cup.
NJX can tryout for any team they would like. No restrictions.Jaguars lack scoring, isnt this the case for all teams? A healthy team did very well at Friendlies in March, with injuries allows other players to be able to get on field and see if they belong.
LOL, Appreciate the Jaguar jokes. The Wildcat coaches and parents have been very disturbing. They are down right delusional and neurotic. PDA tournament. Will be rough for NJ. Storm in deep water in top bracket. None in second bracket. Think Binghamton beats Ajax in final of 3rd group. Guess the 4th group is only chance of an NJ winner
8:03 must be a parent with an axe to grind.
Plenty of parent with axes to grind on this site.
Storm over FSA Storm draw FC StarsTop Hat over Storm
agree with 12:17. pretty good predictions.Tophat best team based on prior results in that side of bracket.

PDA tournament stacked with talent. Weather forecast looks great. Would like to hear about players/teams from the top bracket. Good luck to all and have fun!
Wildcats got shafted playing in lower bracket. Should be good practice for them. They should be competing with the region's best.
I am one of the positive posters on Wildcats - but they are in the correct flight
really based on what?They probably won't give up a goal all weekend
blah blah blah, wildcats. If its not their own parents posting then I feel bad for that team...who would want to go there with the reputation that is created on this blog.
Based on what?How about based on they'd get hammered by the out of town elite in first flightBetter you do well in your flight and say you belonged than get defeated handily and show you didn'tOne step at a time, Wildcats
I see a number of people bashing Match Fit. Specifically the Jaguar team. Obviously Match Fit is a good program or people would not talk about them.One question I have is will MAtch Fit have a Pre Ecnl team, an EDP team, and two other teams at U13? 4 Teams at U13?
I would say yes, no and maybe
12:07, I would say yes there will probably be 4 MF teams at U13. Pre-ECNL (Falcons), NPL (NJX), EDP plus one more. Which team gets to play EDP probably depends on who show up at Raritan tryouts and can they put a better team together than current Jaguars.
It's not wildcats blogging about their flight.they are in correct flight based on record.Just more posing and answering own posts by haters.Or they blog general info and try and act innocent and then give themselves away by slipping into blog nasty snipe at wildcats.Think about who benefits if they can keep wildcats from continuing to progress.
real wildcats actually agree with points made by 11:58.
such obvious posing by haters it's transparent.
The Force be with you.
How is it obvious Match Fit is a good program?Have you seen what happened on the boys side?If they did not get an ECNL designation nobody would talk about them.I don't have an agenda against MF, but I don't know why they think they deserve more credit? I like the fact that MF will enable more NJ girls to play at the ECNL and NPL level, but hey are not a great program.
MF has had some very good teams in club, but not consistent as pda top to bottom, boys and girls side.Never have been.Doubt they ever will be. PDA clearly top club in NJ on both sides.
Point is Jaguars will get runoff from njx and black players currently rostered who are beaten out for spot on U13 pre ecnl team by all the outsiders you have coming to pre ecnl team tryouts.Just as pda did with storm they will take outside players over many of their in house players.
12:35 wildcat parents are known to come on here and trash their opposition.. I don't think it's posers
Forget about teams.How would you rank these leagues?1. ECNL or National League or SUper Y2. NPL (all 18 leagues) or Region1 Premier League3. Region1 Colonial League4. EDP or NYCSL PL5. JAGS/PAGS/LIJYSL6. Classic/Town Travel Leagues
"Maybe they didn't bring the right combination of girls from Manalapan/EB/NJSA -Stars & Cedar.Am I missing anyone?"Two from the Howell team also.
12:48- Thats a fair point. The current Jaguar team is not very good, it could be good if they get players from Falcons and NJX as more players come over.1:08- You have them listed the leagues in the right order.
Repeat:Wildcats feel they were flighted properly. Bracket is very competitive and any of those teams can beat each other on a given day and have in the past.Whoever comes out of that 3rd flight will have earned it.
Why would an NJX player leave for Jaguars?
Because they will not make black team.Same with black players who are cut to make room for outside players who try out and are picked. Look at storm, they added 2 players from outside club at midseason.What do you think will happen at pre ecnl tryouts for U13 year. njx will eventually fold and players will be picked up by jaguars except for 1 or 2 who are picked for pre ecnl team. It is inevitable. What do you think the MF brass has been planning all along.
Think people. Wildcats postings are by one person, he knows who he is. Fearless leader.
Why wouldnt MF take some girls from Falcons and place them on NJX. NJX will train in Hazlet with all the other ECNL teams. NJX a better team. This is not meant to pit NJX vs Falcons but NJX is very good.
1:29 Please stop, nobody cares about what Wildcats think. Just give the blog a break. I laso agree with earlier posts that leagues were listed from top to bottom.
So Wildcats paid $800 to play one out of state foe and two teams they already play in EDP. Yeah that makes sense-
Yeah - PDA really should figure out how to guarantee each team a 4th game
1:40 has the number one team in NJ foldingHow convenient.
1:53 that bracket sucks for all 3 of those teams. TSF's last 2 league games were Wildcats and Ajax
A lot of good teams were turned down.Happy to be playing this weekend.Good weather finally, good comp and good fields.

I'd switch Imperials with Sachem ir SI Hotshotsthanks for the list
Why would crush be in B bracket over other NJ teams? That would be insane.
Crush A is in Championship Bracket , Crush B team is in Premier.
I highly doubt that the MFA ECNL teams are going to train exclusively in Hazlet. They will move around.
The PDA tournament is much stronger comp.
What club were the lady falcons with before MFA?
@ 2:53 agree 100%. Only team that didn't get the shaft completely was ajax cause they don't pay the tourney fee but yeah all three teams getting hosed.
BREAKING NEWS:MF PRE ECNL training out of HAZLET!!!!MF BLACK PARENTS NOT HAPPY!!
Again, why would Crush be in B bracket at Delco? It goes off of performance from last year at Delco and GS, right? They have no business being ahead of any other NJ team. Must be a Crush parent that sent the list. Wishful thinking I guess.......
6:01 I guess everyone will find out at the tryouts one way or anotherApril 21 730-9pmApril 23 6-730pmMay 2 6-730pm
6:01 NOT TRUE
Why even bother responding to 6:01. If anyone wants the truth about the MF ECNL team they can ask the coach or the director of coaching
Match Fleece:- NPL (NJX) team better than their pre ECNL team. - Jaguars losing to Manalapan in SC.Just stating the facts. EVERYBODY getting robbed.

GuysNJX a very physical team yes. Very good team yes. Top team out there yes.MF BLACK also a big physical team, a top team as well. Difference is Black team is technically skilled. Moves ball nicely. Too many players on this team that club does not want to loose. My opinion, played both. MF Black hands down a better soccer team. Not saying NJX can't beat them. Long term Black team players will go further.
Should be a great weekend at PDA, perfect weather and all games are being played at complex and great fileds close by. Looking forward a local tournament with great teams.
7:42POTENTIAL....Why would MF Brass want NJX if they didn't see the potential this team brings to the table. Hands down, NJX has the most talented and diverse team in NJ. As a former college coach and player, the NJX players have size, speed and potential to play at the next level. MF Black players are good, small and not as fast. MF Brass will close the gap dude if there is such a gap. Just because you see a few girls on MF Black who have really good skills, don't assume the whole team is technically better than other teams. Come on man.
I contacted this new guy at PDA Shore, he said the plans for the shore team is NPL/Pre-ECNL. Told me he has received the most interest in this group u12 going u13#2
8:07I played, coach and train. I agree with 7:42. Black has size and speed as well. More importantly they have players that are very skilled. Can this team add players to take them further, absolutely. This goes for all teams.I like NJX so this is not a knock on them. Top players from NJX move to BLACK will be a dominant team. No question. Either Match Fit is set at this age group. PERIOD
#2Go back to your hiatus please. Don't wanna here this PDA crap anymore.
I do not think any MF players or NJX players will be moving anywhere. That would be stupid. Smart thing to do would be to evaluate all players and let the Directors decide who should play on the ECNL, NENPL, R1 and EDP teams.
Black team has 8 kids and NJX has 8 that would make the core of a SOLID ECNL team come U14. No real need to do until then. Irrelevant who plays pre ECNL and NE NPL for U13. Believe me, MF will have these 8 and 8 locked up for U14. Add a few outsiders and oh boy.
I agree. This will be a great team. PDA players will be rethinking things if you try foes not go well. Already grumblings.
8:07 Exactly right. Match Fleece was very aggressive in acquiring NJX. Starting 8/1 they are going to put their club patch on this NJX team and brag about being #1 NJ.NJX parents paid a lot of money training and traveling to earn those GS points and rank. Don't understand why NJX would now pay Match Fleece 3K?
And at u14, MF teams will be named ECNL, NE NPL and so on. The black, blue, green, red and white bs will be for the affiliate teams. Everything will be a clean slate and the players should be playing on the appropriate Academy level. No one will know about this MF Black and NJX bs. Girls will be mixed up, that it will not even matter.
8:28Why, because MF is on another level dude!
I think you mean "jump ship"
8:24- Are these the same directors that set up their boys teams? I haven't heard Match Fleece explanation of what happened with the boys program.You can't keep all these players forever. At some point Match Fleece will lose key players:I agree they plan was to get as many kids as possible now, Bank the money then at U14 or U13 tournaments start putting the stronger kids together.The obvious problem is how do you convince players from NJX to travel up to the Flacons practice or convince the Falcons to travel to Hazlet? Most will have to drive by PDA complex.
InterestingSomeone calls themselves #2 - Which is fine - but he/she is not the original.My only question is I hope it's not the same poster as 8:20? Because my friend that would be weird.
Thats not the real #2Whats the story with MF boys?
Take 280 either way. Avoid 287 gridlocks.
Do MF boys play ECNL and is this a boys blog? Answer, no. So why would we care about the boys side?
Why would parents do this. If you could make PDA, why would you drive an extra 40 minutes?I get the anti-PDA sentiment, but would parents really drive an extra 75 miles (1.5 hrs) roundtrip? That doesn't make sense or cents!
Good point 9:16 or is it PDA parent?Same would be said about PDA players. Why would they drive by Hazlet to go to PDA now. MF offers ECNL now BABY!
Since it is possible (no proof) that MF and PDA might field EDL NPL teams does this move the EDL ahead of the NYCSL NPL or the NE Girls NPL?I would still love to see an NPL Regional (sorry to the non-npl posters) with either a wildcard bid to the NPL Champions Cup or the US Club Soccer national Event.Take the top 4 teams from the 3 NPLs and hold an event over the weekend.1st DivisionNEW YORK SC G01NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH-ASLPLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY AJAXTSF ACADEMYMARYLAND RUSH RUSH 01G2nd DivisionMANHATTAN G'01 PRIDE - REDMATCH FIT ACADEMY FC LADY JAGUARS (BLUE)SMITHTOWN STARS SJEB '01FC COPA ACADEMY LIMAClubs with NO EDP teams at u12Jersey United Spartans (NJ)Lehigh Valley United (PA)New Jersey Rush (NJ)NJ Stallions Academy (NJ)
I can tell you PDA is very surprised on how well Match Fit is doing in all age groups in ECNL. They did not expect them to be where they are. This is a major concern for them. 4 teams can make it to ECNL finals which will be a devastating blow to PDA.
NE NPL next year will be a higher level than regular NPL. Not saying NPL will not be a good play but NE NPL will have tweaked teams that will be solid.
MF, don't embarrass yourself.PDA #1 girls soccer club in the US 3 straight yearsPDA recognized and awarded best ECNL clubPDA Storm 2012 and 2013 SC Champions.You might not like these facts, but they are facts.How do you say "PDA worried about..." thats idiotic. Unless you speak directly to PDA management, which obviously you don't. If you did, you would not be posting it.Its my opinion, that PDA probably doesn't like have another ECNL club in the state. MF is good at picking good town teams and making them MF. NJX U11 and NJX U12 both great teams that MF acquired. They have not demonstrated the ability to take a young team and develop them to compete at a national level.If you hate PDA and want your daughter to play for MF thats fine but you can't honestly say or believe that MF will develop her like PDA could.
OKAY sticking to NPLs and this u12 Age group - I know this is a hard question to ask because teams will look different next fall. But based on what we have seen and what we can research who do you think comes out on top, only 1pre-ECNL teams = Breakers?NE Girls NPL = MatchFit if they send NJX or Black?NYCSL NPL = NEFC?EDL NPL = NJ Wildcats or NYSCWhat do you think? Do you agree or disagree. Not sure what else to talk about.What no PDA? We know who I'm not or do we?
Match Fit is going to become a major threat to PDA in the next year or twoCan't wait to read the U14 blog in two years and see how different the posts will be
Below are the CLUB pt/per game AVG of every team in ECNL and NPL.The Claim that MF isn't strong - is False they are the 3rd best ECNL club in the NE as of today in their first season. That speaks OUT LOUD we are in the house and the roof the roof the roof is on fire we don't need water let the MF burn, burn MF burnHowever PDA ECNL and NE Girls NPL teams are the best, the numbers speak for themselves when comparing only these ClubsECNL Northeast Conference2.558 PDA ECNL2.103 FC Stars of Massachusetts ECNL1.900 Match Fit Academy ECNL1.816 Penn Fusion SA ECNL1.628 World Class FC ECNL1.442 FC Bucks ECNL1.237 Continental FC Delco ECNL1.188 Connecticut FC ECNL1.077 East Meadow Soccer Club ECNL0.972 Albertson Fury ECNL0.528 Scorpions SC ECNL0.333 SoccerPlus Elite ECNL NE Girls NPL 2.413 PDA NPL2.200 FC Stars of Mass NPL 1.882 Connecticut FC NPL 1.657 World Class FC NPL 1.379 Albertson SC NPL1.325 Match Fit Academy NPL1.133 Boston Breakers Academy NPL1.022 FC Bucks NPL0.867 Penn Fusion WCUSC NPL0.333 East Meadow SC NPL 0.250 SoccerPlus Elite NPL
How are there so many MF experts on this blog? hopefully none of you are actually using the nonsense posted on here to make your decisions regarding any of these clubs.
I'm not a MF expert I'm a PDA shill - can't be both or can I?
Please someone in the know tell the story of what befell Matchfit on the Boys Academy side. Good lesson on how fluid things are currently at the academy level as to leagues, affiliations,etc.those who think the future of elite youth soccer on girls side will be same as todayshould take note of what is happening right now to MF, pda and other pay to play clubs on boys side.Also 2 years ago Mf wasn't even in ecnl. Things are changing under our feet as we speak.don't plan too far ahead when choosing team. Train, play, improve in all phases and develop at this young age.
@ 11:37You obviouslyyyyy know the answer as you stated it in your last blog. You are a trouble maker.
STA Tryouts 2014/2015 http://www.stasoccer.org/#!morris--united-sta-tryouts/c1cia Tryouts held at NEW facility where team practices and plays games Central Park / Greystone Fields Morris Plains, NJ Team has the roster spots available for coming season to add to good core group.
11:48- your a trouble maker..LOLYeah 11:48, this is not the place to be bringing facts or examples. Look at what happened to #2, they ran that guy out of here for supporting his opinions.MF you should be alarmed by the way the boys side collapsed. Doesn't mean it will happen to you but be careful. If a contractor builds my neighbors house and it falls down, I am not using them to build my house.
it's like comparing apples and oranges if you ask me
I on't know the details, only know there is a growing problem on the boys side that affects pda, mf and other pay to play clubs.don't have nay boys who play and would like to know more.How is that being a trouble maker.Only would like to know more facts, not bashing. this is a first time experience with a high level youth soccer player for most of us and we are not experts and learn as we go.It's like being a first time parent.The fact that you seem to want to hush hush anyone telling the facts of what is happening currently on the boys side scares me and others.Is there something to hide?
Scare you? Then you really don't know much about the Academy system.The USSF is going away from pay to play. So the Academy teams will need to offer FREE roster spots for their Academy teams. Some clubs can support that some can not.If anything this should make people happy and for all those ODP supporters you still think ODP is a better option than the Academy option if it's Free on the Girls side as well?Soccer going down the right path in our country only people posting the sky is falling are ones that don't have a soccer background and have no idea what the future holds.
1:46 Thanks Captain Obvious. Previous poster clearly stated they are not familiar with high level soccer. I am not a plumber, but I know when my toilets not working.MF a joke!
This all comes down to funding. Red Bulls are backed by their professional team. MF and PDA will need to get support from somewhere in order to offer free rides. There you have it.
In PA, we have the Phila Union Academy on the boys side, which is free.The clubs which have ECNL teams on the girls side, Penn Fusion, Continental FC, and FC Bucks, all have "academy" level boys teams too. Although of the three, FC Bucks is least well developed. These are all pay to play, but they acknowledge that the goal is to get their players invited onto the Phila Union Boys teams. And when they "lose" a player to the Phila Union Academy it is a cause of some celebration and gets posted all over the website.I don't see this happening on the girls side because of the economics of it all. But it would be great if it did.I have no idea what happened to MF's boys program. The poster is being intentionally vague. If it folded entirely that's one thing. But if they merely lost their best players to a free MLS team's academy, well then who cares? That's what should happen.
The ever changing soccer landscapeMLSintroduces home grown player ruleMLSpartners up with Div 3 USL Pro for Recerve teamsMLSintroduces players loaned to other MLS teams not trading them.USSF going away from pay to playwhat's next?I have and idea, but as someone once told me on this board to take my MLS knowledge and knowledge of WORLD soccer and stop talking about it because it has nothing to do with girls youth soccer. So I won't get into it. But soccer is changing and it's foolish to think it won't change on the girl's side either.
NWSL teams linking with girls youth clubs (Sky Blue not currently linked in NJ)
1:33 the answer to your questions are boys side has ALWAYS been slightly ahead of girls side on changes at Elite Youth Level going all the way back to first MAPS leagues in late ninties started movement away from NJYSA with all it's restrictions on rosters and clubs.the key to answering your questions are that girls side has ALWAYS followed along with the changes on boys side just slightly after they were established on boys side. Key point is that status quo is not permanent and more changes to landscape on both girls and boys side at Elite Youth Level are coming. MF and PDA will of course try and hush this up as much as possible because it may leave a changed landscape which doesn't favor them in any way.
2:09 Spot On.Nailed it.
Sky Blue will link with PDA in NJ...powder blue and sky blue are the same color, right?
So when you say MAPS - you are saying US Club Soccer?and when you are saying NJYSA - you are saying USYSA and their roster restrictions.Does the same hold true to the Top youth leagues on the girl's side?ECNL (US Club) vs National League (USYSA)There will be changes for sure but where will PDA and MF be in the Pyramid is the Question?We know 1. NWSL2. W-League / WPSL3. United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA)but where does the U23 Elite Clubs National LeagueUSL W20Fit into the equation?
Yes and yes. NJYSA is the nj affiliate of USYSA and I believe MAPS was the precursor to US Club.The answer to your other questions about where this all leads is "Who Knows"? But the status quo will not last that is certain.

At what point did NJX become soccer royalty? They play over the top ball like most U-12 teams.
3:39 Who cares how they play? Besides you.
who said NJX was royalty? They get consistently bashed on this blog and have only recently been replaced by Wildcats as most loathed.
5:07 it goes in waves.It's so yesterday, but it's this board if we don't have that then we don't have anything. Because there is only so much you can talk about in Youth soccer and I think we covered it all on this board - so why revisit it we will just be repeating the same posts. So while yes it's like groundhog day - it's this board and I think that's why the few of us like it.
How much does it cost to play at PDA ?
Does anyone have anything to say about ODP team? Waste of time or worth giving it a shot? Do they have any organized game schedule or just that your kid, if she makes the team, has access to training, a few camps during the year & I guess that's about it. Is the training worth it? I'm just curious if this is something we should look into or not.
@ 6:17Your soul + $2,400 + travel + etc.
Just like joining a cult.
Anybody have any information on the pda shore?Are they just taking on the Tom's river team and just have one or two spots available on the team?Or is it a completely new team and nothing to do with the Tom's river teams?Thanks!

4/23 a busy night in central nj. PDA Shore, Nj Force and MF Tryouts. Is this done deliberately or coincidence?
I would think so as Match Fit released early,others put on same date to prevent players on attending multiple tryouts
Wildcats tryouts 4/23 as well.
NJ Force Imperials first to Final EightCongrats.
9:44pm I am friends with one of the TR copa coaches, for the most part it will be a new team... their current roster is small and he thinks only 5-7 will want to make the academy commitment
FC Delco preliminary Flights tweaked just a bit. Looks like they moved MF, Crush and Wildcats around for some reason.

10:49, LOL DYFS will have a mobile command center in the parking lot.PDA Shore, Force and MF all great options. Think they all have different dates for their second tryout. Good Luck!
Delco ChampionshipC is the tough bracket, B closeA is the easiest.B obviously the ECNL (not sure why they do this), with EM left out.
Of course when you have 12 (even more than that) excellent teams in a tourney none of it is easy.I think it is good that teams get to play at least one foe they havent yet seen - and it seems they did a decent job of that.This would be a tough tournament to handicap, surely
I will pick the upset in B, go with MATCH FIT. Souh Shore and NJX in the others. Then I guess they choose a 4th team on points.I dos ee thye took my advice and dropped Sachem down for NJ Force, now in second flight.
