Of course the players from Ajax or any NPL team at those clubs is upset when a player outside of their team who is sitting out her own teams ECNL game/event is brought down and that causes their player to sit out and not play.This is an unavoidable reality with multiple teams with roster over 18 in the same club.That is why some players are choosing to leave these clubs rather than subject their child to this each week.Some will buy this and some won't.Everyone should make their own decision based o full disclosure of the facts so expectations are realistic.
4:37 So in addition to having 22-25 players on ECNL teams roster battling to dress and play each week, you now tell us that it is normal for 2 of the top NPL teams players to bump up and dress and play for the ECNL team in their event.Doesn't that now create 2 more(now 6-9) players from the 22-25 player ECNL team roster that would not dress or play?Do those 6-9 players now not dressing from the ECNL team for that ECNL Teams game/event now all drop down to the NPL team for their event to get "plenty" of playing time?But if the NPL team in the same club also has an expanded roster of 22-25 less the 2 who bumped up to ECNL team for that event, that leaves 20-23 players and now you add the 6-9 players not dressing from the ECNL team to those remaining 20-23 and now you have anywhre from 26-32 players combined to pick 18 from each weekend for the NPL teams event. So 8-14 players between the 2 teams sit out that game/event.And this happens each week for that weekends game/event across those 2 teams.That a lot of unhappy players sitting out.I bet its a real close and fun experience for all concerned up there. A great system for team building and team chemistry as well.I would have a designated food taster for my child at the team party.
"Girls not rostered for the ECNL Team are usually playing with the NPL team that weekend and getting plenty of playing time.""Playing time is never an issue with these clubs".And by their own words will the liars become ensnared.
5:33The only flaw in your analysis is that the NPL teams do not carry that many players and players are always hurt from team to team. Also between the two Npl teams there may be various spots available. also some girls may choose not to suit up at all and just sit out.All in all, it is certainly not a preferred way to do things for any parent.
Its seems you are angrier about the situation than I am.Why is that?The way i stated is how it is and the parents know this coming in and they elect to stay.Would they prefer different certainly but thats not the case so why do you care so much?
No one is angry.Just looking for an understanding and full disclosure of how the larger rosters work in practice.
Well I have been as forthright as i can be so that parents make a choice with their eyes wide open.
4:49- He said he lost 1 -0 to you.I am willing to bet he brought his daughter back to team tryouts this spring.
6:13 Thank you for doing that.
6:22, if he brought his kid to our tryouts I would be surprised, since we are in another state, and its quite a haul from central NJ.
You know what I find amusing as hell. The parents that are going to match fit NPL(NJX) that thought they were joining a team practicing in Hazlet and are now told they are at Morris Catholic. LOL have a nice drive up north for not that much better of a team!
9:34 Those parents are also told they can practice in Hazlet as well. How amusing does that sound? Have fun laughing at nothing Copernicus.
Those parents of Matchfit NPL were told their daughters can train out of Hazlet with the ECNL players.Stop trying to cause trouble and the new season hasn't even begun.
Just ask yourself if you can honestly and truthfully state my daughter has improved. Did my daughter learn anything new. If you aren't blinded by a instant gratification of the wins now and you are fine with ecnl players playing down on the npl team and taking more minutes from your kid, then You should be fine.
6:45 So you are asking them if they are fine playing down with NPL? What would they be doing if they left ECNL team for another, wouldn't they be playing down?I am sure these parents played every scenario in their head over and over before they moved to these teams. The one thing that was not a secret was they have 4 teams with 20+ players and the club's tryouts usually brings new talent. So sitting was just a matter of time if they are not a top talent. Not easy and not for everyone but it still is a CHOICE and as long as their options that's all you could ask for.
I was speak of being on a npl team and having ecnl players come down and play in the so called important games. If it is all up front and explained completely of how it works, then buyer beware. I don't think it is explained completely and there lies the problem. You get that email that you made the team you have 24 hours to accept and make payment with your credit card or your offer will be rescinded. I think everyone assumes if you made the team and make your payments and buy your uniforms, then you would expect to play.The saying goes if you went to a car dealer and negotiated a price but the salesman tells you if you walk out of the door now the price isn't good when you come back. Would you run????
Because of forums like this and word of mouth from other parents, parents now know what to expect for next year from PDA. if they still choose to sign up then there is nothing to gripe about.
8:02 I guess the big question is - how was the tryout turnout this year? If it was the same as before then why care? I think when people choose an ECNL club they know their kid can be replaced at any time if they don't then shame on them. If they picked one of these clubs they obviously think their kid is that type of a talent. Some times the truth hurts - but answers will be given to parents about their kids. Another question is what do you do? Leave and you will be replaced just as quick - so the club doesn't get hurt. Is it important to have your kid dig down deep to see if there is something there for them to continue competitive soccer.I don't know what I would do if my kid was part of a rotation that didn't play. If I move her it might give the signal that I don't believe in her even if it's a move I think is best for her.So please unless you are in that spot shut it and let these parents handle their situation the way they think is right.
It's not a secret. PDA tells you all of this before you accept a spot on the team. Every parent thinks their kid is a "starter". They probably were better than players on their previous teams.At PDA, you don't stop trying to impress after tryouts. EVERY practice you are being evaluated. Until now practice has always been the emphasis for development at PDA. Other teams mocked them when they weren't playing in a lot of tournaments. How did that work out? The roster sizes are exaggerated. They will be at least 20, ECNL probably higher. Lets say you have 22 kids rostered- If you have 2 to 3 kids injured and a second keeper there is 3 to 4 players not rostering.IF everybody is healthy (which has never happened) - We usually play a Saturday and Sunday game vs MA,NJ,PA,CT. 3 players and a keeper wont roster, then a different 3 players and the other keeper wont roster the second day. We play 80 minute games. Thats a lot of time for 10 field players. The time is not split evenly, but NOBODY splits their time evenly.I understand some people are going to hate PDA regardless, thats fine I hate the Yankees for similar reasons. I Just wanted to try and explain the situation for those that were curious.I read about all of these unhappy parents on the NPL side. There are unhappy parents on every team. If you brought your child back to tryouts, you can't be that unhappy.
8:31 Well explained. I don't think the club that is being referred about is PDA. I believe most think they have their act together and what is expected there.
I agree with @8:40. The club being discussed is MF. There is no transparency with that club. So many side conversations and secret handshakes. What team, coaches, 'HOME" game locations.The only certainty is that if they don't get your deposit, you could lose your spot. Very welcoming!
8:31... Amen! My daughter does not play for a ECNL team but has been approached. PDA hides nothing. It is my choice to play for another club. Everything you said was explain to me. I don't begrudge any player who plays for ECNL. Good luck to all the girls in this age group. Have a great weekend!
Yes, but the bill will come due when they start up the U14 team in the fall.No way all those counting on those promises being fullfilled will have their expectations realized.Feel bad for the ECNL coach if he returns.He did a nice job and had his team coming along well and now he will have an impossible situation to juggle that group. how will he evaluate players weekly and fit them into his group when they are training at facilities 2 1/2 hours apart?
Will be interesting how that plays out.How many from the 3 MF teams were given spots on next years U14 ECNL team after tryouts?
2.5 hrs apart? Here we go again with the lies. If you do not know what you are talking about, please do not speak. I guess some people always need to add a nudge to try to ruin something. Nice try.
You only the truth's of real positive and negatives if you play in the club. Majority of people looking from the outside-in provide false statements or are all hear say.It's looks as the NJ ECNL/NPL clubs do well in league play if you look at the ECNL and NPL websites. Can't really go by GS points as many teams do not see other unless bracketed together in tournaments.
11:01- Why don't you enlighten us then?
As PDA and MFA try and extend their reach, you will always have problems. It's frustrating because you don't even know the questions to ask. You'd need to have an attorney to make sure you covered it all. In the end though and starting with U14, both PDA and MFA have just one A team. After that it's messy, and at the younger ages it's messy. You have to always be reminding yourself that it's just a kids game and to just have fun while it lasts.
How many players were givern spots on ECNL team at MF for U14 at recent tryouts?
Come on guys what's this with the problems BS? PDA and MF are NJ ECNL clubs and they will try to keep players away from each other by expanding rosters. This is no problem it's an opportunity for the kids to play on a very good team. They will practice twice a week and for some it will be their games this will make it very fierce for development.This is great for the clubs and for the kids that also get to play in games. Is this the only option? Hell no!! But it is an option and for some it's the right option. Nuff said!! There are no questions to ask we all think of our kids as starters problem is you just need to hope the coach does if game time is your cup of tea,if it doesn't bother you enjoy the ride or move to a team where game time won't be an issue
Do not go to PDA team early . say u9 to u12.. this is a big mistake.Parents are finding this out now. those that have been there since u9 have found it makes no difference whether you were there since u9 or you came at u12 or u13. Things are changing at PDA quickly!

Anybody care to guess at the GS point value of the top 3 flight at Delco?

This weekend's tournaments will be up for grabs I assume many teams will be brining in guess players from there newer players coming onto rosters this Fall.
We are not brining in any guest player, we have never used guest players, if you roster with the team, you play, end of saga, good night.
My predictionsF1 - FC VirginiaF2 - CFC Arsenal SkyF3 - CFC West Orange
Heard that CFC is forming a United team next year at u14. Based on what I've seen from both the CFC teams I would say they would be a tough our next year at u14. Uniting usually occurs at u15 for that club so this is something new and probably for the good.
10:21 Good thing for most of us is they will be ECNL and only playing ECNL teams. So happy there is an ECNL board for all that talk you guys can jump in with CA guys complaining about team selections.For most us the NPl team will not be as strong and not flighted in F1 inmost leagues - just like at Jefferson and Delco.Question, why do the PDA North teams avoid Delco? Looks like the top 3 flights are pretty strong even GS gives them the nod as > 9,000. Going by GS Delco stronger (deeper) than PDA and equal to Jefferson. We goof on PA teams -but props to them they do have 2 of the regions majors in Spirit & DELCO to go with VA who has WAGS and Jefferson Cup and Bethesda & CASL not that far away in either direction. Up North we have PDA and FC Stars - EDP Events knocking on the door, Manhattan has to many weather issues to count on. Besides - i would rather drive south to VA and have my kid play in warmer weather.
I can see why MF avoided Delco this year.2014MF ECNL 3 ties (3rd our of 4 in bracket)MF NPL 1 Win and 2 Ls (3rd out of 4 bracket)2013MF ECNL 1W, 1T, 1L (3rd out of 4in bracket) MF NPL 1W, 2T (Finalist)
Because MF can't win out of state other than weak b team npl league. MF ecnl slightly better out of state, not much though. Npl coach is always looking for the next meal ticket
PDA college Showcase is this weekend as well. so because its a major showcase event younger PDA teams are encouraged to watch the festivities.All younger teams have off except for the occasional one off team
Why is CFC West Orange in Flight 3? They play in the Pre-Ecnl already. They should have been placed in Flight 1. Should have had all Pre-Ecnl teams play each other. Probably won't be a competitive tournament for them.
Actually Arsenal is a better team than West Orange. Put them together and they will be a ECNL power.
So instead of playing in a major event that a current ECNL club hosts they are encouraged to watch games they have no interest in?
No PDA College Showcase goes from U14 and above - they encourage the younger players (U12 to U13) to come and watch as they will potentially be attend them in the future.Also Coaches are focus on their older teams at these events as well so why would they register a younger team at Delco knowing full well they will not be attending it in a year or so.
So you are saying these younger teams play 2nd fiddle to the older teams? So they don't have one coach dedicated to them? What is the difference between this event and any other? My assumption is that the ECNL younger players are asked to come watch this since it is an ECNL event, am I correct?
MF ECNL attended Greer, why would they go to Delco?I see MF ECNL went 6 wins 3 loses 1 ties vs out of state teams. (from what board stated 3 wins at Greer) Very good results
Thank you that explains why Storm wasn't there either - I buy that more than encouraged to watch older youth soccer games. It's not like you are watching NWSL which is painful may I add or our NT which seems like it's getting better.I thought you would see MF NPL and PDA North join PDA South to get some really great games before their playoff games start. Hey to each their own.
11:31it is a powerhouse event. My daughter is looking forward to the festivities. besides the u13 team just participated in a tournament.We have our way. you have your, i hope you are enjoying your way. We are certainly enjoying ours.
I would assume PDA Ajax is the only PDA team at Delco so they can stack the roster with the best players from the other PDA teams.
I hear the 5 best players from Storm and Dragons are playing for AJAX this weekend.
How come PA Pre-ECNL teams or additional southern pre-ECNL teams didn't participate in PDA Spring Kickoff. It's a choice by decision per coach. No one is hiding on the ECNL/NPL levels.
1:14, Actually all of Storm is going to Delco and play under the Ajax name...shhh, don't tell anyone ;)...not even Ajax knows.
New team called the PDA Stragax.
12:32 Don't take this the wrong way -why are you on this board? Shouldn't you be on the ECNL board? The league is strong and the best players should be on these teams - no argument from me - just don't understand why you are on this board if it's not your way?You have nothing to defend! PDA & MF ECNL teams are best in NJ hands down. Not talking about any of them. Let me guess your kid does play on ECNL team correct?
When ever someone tries to bring up Boca, MF Black, PDA Shore, NJ Rush, NJCSA (either team), TSF, SJEB, Copa, Medford, NJ Crush they get killed, why is that?NJ Wildcats, STA, MF NPL, PDA Dragons & PDA Ajax should be the top 5 on this board for NJ and honestly I don't think the others are to far away from them, we can say there is a big gap - but the scores don't tell the same story.
PS, I do think the NorthEast Girls pre-ECNL flight champion will get an invite to the NPL finals this year.There will be 15 teams for this age group 16 would be so much cleaner
Do you think the NPL Finals will have game links like the USYSA National Finals had last year - it was to cool.
Oh-oh, the CFC people have come out of the woodwork, but it might be a little early to start pounding your chest, just enjoy your weekend, and try to relax.
You joke 2:21..Thats probably what is coming to Delco

7:09, you have been right all year. It's a wonder that PDA Stragax has lost any games all year. I think it's the same girls playing every game for all 3 teams. I'll let you in on a little secret. Each Storm girl is given 3 different uniforms with different numbers. Very sneaky.
I saw on GS that some of the PDA girls are rostered on more than one of their teams.
Got Soccer rosters lack accuracy. One of the PDA rosters still has a kid who has been at another club for 2 full years.
I will be at the fields today, early. I want to make sure I check all of the club passes for the Ajax team. What I am looking for, not sure, but someone said something sneaky was going on, and I want to put a stop to it!
You should also ask the parents why they don't complain on this site that there are over 60 girls on 3 PDA teams and only 18 Storm players play every game. Why are they not complaining?
PDA u13 Pyramid18 girls dress - max 26 girl roster for NPLThis club has a pyramid and few to fill their top team's roster.Remember if a girl plays only 1 game she is on the roster and can't be removed fromthe roster to free up a spot.This team is free to call up as many players as they want from Ajax/Dragons/Shore - That's what every parent wants if your kid is not on the A team - A team parents want the opposite.So why would anyone complain - smarten up palA.

@3:05 from what I saw, Calvert "doing their thing" not impressive; although scores show different, they had to fight both games. Field play relatively equal with the exception that Calvert was able to "finish" their chances while the other two blew their opportunities.

Has Ajax picked up any new players? Seem to be struggling
as predicted Ajax will go 0 for again in F1, just like Jeff Cup 2 years ago when they were in F1.
Binghampton looks like they should have been flighted higher.
NEFC just keeps getting bettter and better. Wouldn't be a surprise if they are in the final.

A team like YMS is the favorite going into play and they will get some where around 5,000 GS points for winning a flight that had at least 5 strong teams when it came GS point accumulation. If there wasn't 5 strong then their prize would be a lot less. On the flip side a X-PAGS teams future ECNL team CFC Delco can cash out somewhere like 8,500 points, this will push them up the the PA GS rankings some where around 7th or 8th place in PA. I know it's not important to them. But for me it's fun to follow and that's why I waste my time doing this.

Looks like Ajax embarrassed themselves again in F1.

The GS points don't work quite like that. The max points available is different for the each team. In a 10k bracket, a team with 25000 points has a max potential of 5000 if they win, 2500 finalist 1250 quarter finalist. A 10000 pt team , 8000,4000,2000. It make a difference, sometimes of quite a few hundred points when in the calculation you take the 20% out. Maybe someone can explain it better but it's not 10k, 5k, 2500 less 20%, it's 10000 less 20% of that specific teams total, THEN divide in half in forth for finalist and semis.
10:52. You really seem to have an obsession on Ajax. Just come out and say what your real problem is. They are 13 year old girls competing in a top tournament in F1. Where are you?

2:50You are mistaken. The max points PL could get in this tournament was 6300(10000 less 20% of their current total of 18500) as a finalist they would get half or 3150, as a semi finalist 1575. See it makes a difference when you take the 20% off.
F1 final FC VirginiaNEFC
I did take 20% off10,000 - 3,700 =6,300 as Champion5,000 - 3,700 = 1,300 as Runner Up2,500 - 3,700 = 0 as Semi-Finalist
3:45You are taking the 20% off at the wrong spot in the equation. 10000 point bracket less 3700 is in fact 6700 if they won. But PL would have gotten 3350(half of 6700 max) if they had made the finals. As a quarterfinal it's they will get 1675( 1/4 of the max 6700). PL was in the same situation at Jeff Cup. According to your method PL would have gotten 0 points for coming in as quarterfinalists there (2500 less 20% of their total at the time(about 17500) which would be negative 1000. But that's not what happens, you can check. Or you can just wait till later this week when the Delco points are awarded.
Your logic sounds correct.So I guess you determine the flight value first and then subtract out their 20% to determine their max and then apply their prize % (100, 50 or 25).Okay - sold.
Who cares about those points?! Concentrate on the QUALITY of the GAME the team plays. Not the points. There are many teams ranked high according to GS that are not nearly as good as teams further down that stupid list.
Hands down the best 2 teams in F1 made the Delco Final. Should be a great game!
In NJ boca moves up to 4th spot after quarterfinals. TSF drops along with Galaxy and Ajax. Is that correct? Not much other NJ action in these top brackets. VA. Has some great teams along with PA. NY strong and Mass always in running.
Boca is #4 of what?
Boca would get smoked by all 5 PDA and MF teams. Keep dreaming. Try and set up a friendly with any of them since you are always playing several brackets below in all tournaments and never get to see them. You had you chance to to sit at the big girl table with the state cup but chose to play down. Why is that?
Forgot to include STA
@7:50 and 8:00- based on this weekends tournament results, I was asking if there was other movement in GS rankings. I only see those teams I mentioned moving in GS per this weekends results. BOCA made QF in top flight of EDP Cup, just saying I saw some movement in rankings based on those results , whether you think they deserve it or not. Let's remember they are all 13... Even if they don't play for PDA
@7:50 GS Rankings after this weekend
Boca is inconsistent, a developing team with some talent. #4 based on GS will be overstated but they've been rising. Remember entries into state cup were made in the beginning of fall season, before they started playing tougher competition. Also they did play PDA Dragons last NJ Cup and if my memory serves me it was a one goal differential. Likewise, they have beat PDA Shore and MF blue. Lost to MF ECNL largely. Haven't faced any of the others yet. Storm and MF ECNL out of their league but would say all others would be good games. Also, just a memory jogger that they pay club fees significantly lower than both PDA and MF but still compete and develop. Drink your koolaid at PDA. I can tell you TR Copa was a better team before PDA moved in! And many MF teams ;aka NPL have not been trained and developed by MF but just taken over. Stop thinking this board is just about MF and PDA; ITS NOT! And to come on here and talk about how good your daughters academy team is, shows the money you've put forth. So jokes on you... Chances are, YOURE KID IS NOT MAKING THE OLYMPIC TEAM REGARDLESS.
@7:14 I couldn't agree more! This is supposed to be a tool, not to be used for parents bragging rights. All of these arguments over who's team is better than whose based on points is getting ridiculous. NJ has various clubs that are performing well and fall within top 10/15- MF, PDA, Crush, STA, Medford, BOCA, NJCSA, Wildcats, TSF- on any given day any one of them can beat the other. Let's acknowledge and support them all verse arguing who is better. The MF/PDA attitudes need to get in check.
10:27 On order for them to swallow it when their kid is left off roster and doeesn't even dress they have to convince themselves they are getting something everyone else is not or accept they have been hustled.
NEFC 1 VFC 0. Anybody got any insight on how the teams matched up? Sounds like a good final.
NEFC has proved by their recent results They are now the team to beat.Are they an ECNL club?Then throw in South shore winning Champions league and 2 Mass teams are top of the class of Teams in Region 1.
Bocca or any other team that is starting to test the top 10. Take the bashing as a sign that you are now on the radar. MF and PDA have to down play all comers so they can continue to steal from parents. Congrats and welcome to the bashing
1:20 Exactly right!
That is funny. Remember, Just because something is posted on this blog (even several times) doesn't make it a reality. Just ask the GAKster. We all remember him, yes?
Funny how quiet the Ajax parents are this weekend. Don't let anybody fool you. This site is littered with PDA and MF parents. Just keep improving Bocca. You are doing just fine
Huge drop off from top teams to 6-10. Mix of MF players just beat Boca 8-0 in EDP cup. Was not even a game. So although it is great that they are improving, please see the full picture.
The GAKster has been outed at Boca (not Bocca) and feels the need to attack Ajax ??? Very strange. Not sure what that connection is. Somebody must have been cut? My daughters team was not fortunate enough to play at Delco this weekend but looking at the results most of the local teams did not fare great. PL with a very good showing making the semis along with NJ Crush in the 2nd flight. World Class was 1-2 for 10 pts and Ajax went 1-2 good for 11 points in the top flight - not great, but not horrible either.
Spent some time with a PL dad this weekend, and he was very unhappy with the officiating, cannot blame him, it was pretty bad. The fields were too small for the top 2 flights, and the teams were bunching up. NEFC very strong and tenacious, constantly pounding, always playing for the counter attack, and they have an ODP keeper who is smart and tough, hard to match-up with them.

"Beginning in the 2016-17 season, the US Youth Soccer National League will expand from 16 to 32 teams in each of the Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 gender age groups.The National League will continue with the same two-event format, as each gender age group will be split into eight-team divisions, with each side playing seven games. The increase in teams will allow for more qualification opportunities for the top performers from the four US Youth Soccer Regional Leagues, as the automatic qualifying spots for each Regional League doubles from two to four teams for the Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 age groups."
Well...... has FOUR of the six finalists correct at Delco, including nailing Flight 1 cold - with NEFC over Virginia FCNice weekend.
10:37 Thanks- looks like the USYSA Regional Leagues/Champions Leagues will lead to outstanding National level Competition.
Delco tourney and EDP Spring Cup with great weekend weather was outstanding! Now the season has officially ended for many teams which teams do you all see will have more upside now with newer additions and which teams look on the downside.
downside NJ Wildcats
We have lost some good teams in this age group over the years. Rage, NJX and now Crush seems to be watered down. Not fair to say Wildcats. They never won anything when the better teams were entered.Good team that is similar to Boca and PDA Shore in Central Jersey.Think STA is the team on the rise.
I heard STA is losing their best player to PDA Storm.
10:11 options are good. In my opinion as of today with no girls DA - ECNL the place to be for top talents. After that NPL & National League are nice leagues with Region1 & EDP also a good play. Much better than the state premier leagues like JAGS/PAGS.National League going to 32 will open it up for a lot of girls. The teams like NJ Wildcats & STA have become solid options since they can possibly play in both NPL & National League. The two of them together a great option much better than either one by itself in my opinion.
11:20, there are several very good players on that STA team, what position does she play?
Why does it matter?
Has Storm picked their team?
No. Still workin the phones
Ladies and Gents if look at the Delco Tourney this past weekend NJ teams did not fair well. Hopefully NJ teams are not starting to fall behind vs. these southern(VA,MD,PA) and upper(CT,& MA ) state teams. Hopefully this isn't the case and all the teams in NJ are on the downside except MF and PDA.
It was PDA that didn't fair well this weekend, so what are you talking about
i think they are talking about the ECNL team at PDA and Matchfit
Yes agree NJ teams did well at Delco but not strong NJSCA, Crush, Medford, NJ Rush should of at least placed as finalist to show they were still strong ending the their seasons. Ajax was in the top didn't expect them to compete well anyway. Again things will change once again going into Fall. Have a good summer!
So AGAIN they are using this board to discuss ECNL teams. Didn't we already establish that they should be on the ECNL board.I really don't get what is going on with those two ECNL teams that they need to keep plugging about how great they are. It's starting to make me think that something is not right. They are trying way too hard to noticed.
It was mice to see PA Classics back up their regular season PAGS title with a win over GB Select in F2.PS.Just kidding about PAGS title - we know PL owns that crown. They seem tobe the 2 teams along with YMS in PA that's all I can talk about. NJ has the MF/PDA NPL teams, STA and NJ are the top of NJ's chart. NYSC Is the stand alone NY top team.and Yes we know the ECNL teams are better. But for me this board is the world without ECNL since they have their own board.
This is a U13 board. All teams are welcomed. Girls move every season so there is no reason to exclude any team at this age no matter what level they play.
oh ok, now ecnl teams are feeling excluded HAHAHAHA
yup... sometimes it can get lonely at the top looking down.
good for STA and Boca and any other town team making rise except. I actually would think about moving my daughter to Boca if not so far away. They have a long history, good coaching and this U13 group seems to win, regardless of not at Delco, they were in top bracket at EDP cup out of 32 teams and top 4, unless your team was in that top bracket and top 4 out of NJ not sure what the issue is, let them win. Wildcats, TSF, NJCSA, PDA, MF. Give huge kudos to STA/Boca being even talked about with these top academies just mentioned. If you can win with scrappy, cheaper program, why not, why pay $4,000 per year for the other academies, play for STA or Boca, pay less and win in top brackets is way to go, no? And at least out of the 4 top teams in freaking NJ, our home state, at a well recognized EDP tournament, you had one team from NJ making her proud, otherwise, VA, NY and MD were top 3, thank God for Boca in NJ right now.
2:43 never mind looking down, it must be even lonelier looking left and right at all the girls that are dressing and playing when yours is not.
Again, PDA cross rosters their kids! It is the only way they dominate! Ajax didn't have the Storm fillers this weekend and PDA Shore really an up and coming team. You must not have seen them play at their own tournament. Sta is a good team, but got clobbered this weekend in Mass! NJ is watering down the talent pool so much with all of these so called academy teams and wanna be academy teams. There should be some consolidation or we will continue to fall far behind.
Speaking of that tournament, does anyone else think it's weird that they gave out points but never listed any of the games or scores on got soccer
4:00According to the Ajax parents, they had 4 Storm "fillers" this weekend. And I believe I heard 1 from the Dragons as well. can't imagine they were happy about that, especially considering the results. Not sure why PDA can't just roster 18 per team and let them play. Oh yea, smoke and mirrors, money and BS. AJAX is likely a good F2 team and should be left alone to win or lose on their own merits. But hey it's not really about them is it?
Nope but go ahead if you must.
You believe you heard? Sounds like fishing to me.
Was it the same 4 players that started at AJAX and now also play with Storm? Or was it 4 different girls?
The four Storm players were confirmed by the AJAX parents at Delco. I trust the Ajax parents had no reason to lie. But it was on this blog earlier this week that I "heard" one of the dragons players was also coming. I didn't ask the Ajax parents to confirm that, so that's why I wrote it that way. Obviously I take everything I read here with scepticism. In hindsight I would have liked to know whether the 3 girls who regularly play for both Storm & Ajax were included in the 4, or if there were actually 7 Storm players rostered.
My guess it was the same girls that played for both all year. AJAX parents probably aren't happy that Storm took these girls and they are probably not happy they keep coming back. Can't win.
Regardless, Ajaz got smoked 5-1 by Tri-State Team.They are definitely slipping big time.
I don't think they are slipping. They are not an F1 team. They are a notch below right now. As they were before.
Not many games and tourneys left this spring. As is every year, most teams will look different in the Fall. Question is does your daughters team get more or less competitive.
So if they had 4 "guest players" from Storm in addition to the 3-4 girls who normally double roster(which is what it sounds like) then that was more storm than Ajax regardless of what name they entered the tournament as. Just one more proof that the NE pre-ECNL teams are overrated. Really a poor showing by ECNL teams this weekend.
"I heard STA is losing their best player to PDA Storm."Yes - What I would call ST's best defender has accepted a spot on the Storm. She has been training with Storm girls on Mondays at RU for a couple months. She may not be STA's "best" player because to me that has to be someone who puts the ball in the net but she is a very very good soccer player.
"Best player has to be someone who puts the ball in the net?"Sorry but you are far from right! Some GK's are mvp's and there is nothing wrong with a middie or defender who doesn't score being the best player on a side.
All storm players who are on Storm roster were off this weekend.I know it hurts to know that but alas it is true.If it makes you feel better to make things up then go ahead take your best shot.
9:06 you are so full of crap it is comical just reading your posts. You are too funny. No Ajax parent told you that unless they were messing with you. In which case the joke is on you and then that is really funny.
I heard Ajax had Alex Morgan play for them this weekend in a rehab assignment. She must have used one of Storm or Dragons cards. An Ajax parent told me.
Do tell me what motivation the Ajax parents would have for telling us they have 4 storm players guest playing. Most parents just make excuses for lossing. No one ever admits to bringing guests, because it's like admitting your team can't win on its own. But in their case I guess they didn't have a choice. I wonder how the girls who didn't get to dress this weekend felt? Oh that's right, you guys don't care, it's all about survival of the fittest(13 yr olds) there at the "academy"Look we all know the games PDA plays with their rosters, and their need to make excuses for every loss. Face it, even with numerous A team players PDA Storm/AJAX/Dragons had a bad weekend. Truth is I watched PA Classics outplay Albertson ECNL for 55 minutes, only 2 late goals saved them from an imbarrassing loss. If Storm could lose to that team(Albertson) they could have brought their whole squad and wouldn't have fared any better in the top division. I keep reading here how great Storm is because they are atop the Pre-ECNL league, but after watching a number of those teams play this weekend, I have to tell you I am less than impressed.
6:41 has no clue.
You guys are pretty funny. If anyone thinks any of the NON ECNL teams can compete at a High level week in and week out in the ECNL you are fooling yourselfs. The ECNL plays 40 min halfs and once you are are subbed you cant come back in that half. That makes a giant difference in games whether you believe it or not. I know the Delco cup was free subbing and only 30 min games. The girls would love to win but dont really care about beating some of these teams. Coaches will sit starters more and let bench players play more at these tourneys. The bench players do not get as much time in ECNL games. Are there great teams outside of the ECNL sure there is and those teams will start to beat up on each other at every tourney because the ECNL teams will not be playing at as many tourneys. The ECNL teams will be at the showcases, just like most were from U14 and up last weekend. Wrong or right, the top college coaches will be going to the ECNL showcases over the Delco cups. So the top players from the top Non ECNL teams will be moving to ECNL teams in the coming years to get in front of coaches. It is just the way it goes for now.
And yet he keeps posting the same wrong thing over and over. He will continue to post negative PDA blogs. He should worry about his own girls team and not what others do.
6:41Great comeback, really put me in my place!7:54Nothing but excuses, as usual. Yes at u-15 ECNL will be a better place to showcase your players if that's your #1 goal. But far from the only path to get there. Funny thing is, by your own statement you know that many of the current u-13 players will be replaced by superior players currently playing on non ECNL squads. It just cracks me up how arrogant you are at the superiority of the current squads. Spin it any way you wish but results don't lie. Next you will tell me FCV ECNL is actually a better team than NEFC, they were just playing their weaker players in the final.
Nefc is a fine club. They have quality at every age. But your team is not Nefc. And yes they have applied for ECNL status and I suspect they will get it before long, tophhat -another fine club, just joined the fraternity this year.Your argument is futile because ECNL is the destination for these top clubs.Next year you'll be talking about how NEFC, an ECNL club isn't all that, they got beat by so and so.lets face it, you're on the outside looking in and that just burns you.
I did not realize that no college coaches attended Delco. Quit spreading propaganda and get the facts straight. Plenty of college coaches at Delco
7:54Correct me if I am wrong - you are saying that PDA Storm would win every game vs non ECNL NJ teams if they played them in that league?Please. Give your state some credit. Stop waving your club pom poms for one moment.
"I KNOW Delco Cup was only 30 minute games"You're an idiot
By the way - subs not getting in league games is another reason to dislike your model at PDA, if in fact you are being truthful.
Yep every game
Please compare the College coaches at FC Delco to the ones at the PDA ShowcaseFC Delcohttp://events.gotsport.com/events/collegecoaches.aspx?EventID=42568PDA Showcasehttp://www.pdasoccer.org/tournaments/pdagirlscollegeshowcase/523293.htmlThis is not arrogance it is just facts. Although I really do not think anyone on this blog cares to much about the facts. NEFC beat FCV 1-0. Do you think NEFC would beat FCV everytime they played? Do I feel that BEFC is a great team yes. If that club doesnt join the ECNL girls will leave that team for Boston and/or Stars of Mass. 10:15 - Didnt say subs not getting in league games, jus tnot playing as many minutes as starters. In tourneys minutes are much more equal.
So now the ECNL fanboys have resorted to taking credit for FUTURE ecnl teams? Too funny. Look, my daughters team isn't NEFC, your daughters team isn't NEFC, FC Virginia, the pride of the ECNL for most of this season isn't NEFC, nor are any of the NE Pre-ECNL league teams right now. NEFC is hands down the top team on this side of the country and I think that burns you up that they are a non ECNL team.You see that's contrary to your whole soccer world view. To think girls are getting top level development outside of your "elite" clubs, and to think a team can get to that level without playing your league? Not what your DOC told you , huh? Imagine how much better they would be if they played 10 games a year against FC Buck, Continental, Penn Fusion, World Class, and Albertson right? LOL, do you guys really think that way? As far as being on the outside looking in, that statement in itself shows your arrogance. In the next year or two you will find that many of the girls who are currently " on the outside" are choosing to stay there, for now, preferring the development and overall experience they are having with their current teams over the soap opera that seems to go along with being on an ECNL team. But if there is no DA option many will likely move over for the exposure when the time is right. And just like with all previous age groups, your daughter and/or many of her teammates will find themselves on the outside when it truly does matter(not u/13,14), losing their spots to girls developed by clubs you currently look down on. Don't say I didn't warn you.
STA losing their sweeper?Maybe this funny forum will now bury that team again, liek they did earlier before the club became #1 in NJ at this age grouphehCongratulations to the player on the earned honor. She will be missed, initially, of course.
10:55 Spot on!They will come bacvk and try to spin it but what you posted is the truth and they will try and deny that truth to parents at all costs!
You seem to be very upset 10:55.ECNL is here to stay and contrary to your belief ECNL teams past the age of at u14 and above stay intact.Coaches look for positional players that they need to complete a team that they have been building.Also to assume that an ECNL coaches cannot develop a player is just foolish.And yes- These clubs are trying to get into the ECNL for business purposes.A Club like PDA or Stars of Mass need no endorsement by either you or me. Their record speaks for itself.You sound just as Silly as the people touting ECNL as the end all be all.If your daughter happens to be a good place for her development, then that is fine. If she is part of the PDA franchise and is getting her minutes then that is good as well.NEFC is a top quality club. Their teams lose all the time. Not sure how you can declare them the new king of the hill. They join other quality teams around the region and will lose to these teams just as sure as the will win.NEFC has applied to the ECNL. What do you think that they Know that you do not know.I know these ECNL braggarts piss you off but lets not be stupid about this whole thing!
11:24.Still using Got Soccer to sell seats at the club. I guess one does what they have to do in order to sucker the parents into the club.Also , why on earth would you use a sweeper at this age group.Let me guess, the ole 6 in the back to keep the score down and boot the ball forward to a fast running tough forward English soccer at its finest.Your history dictates your mediocracy - one only needs to look up at the older teams.Cheers Mate, to the best team in NJ.
Storm lot stronger now. Will just leave it at that.
Stronger than who FCV, Boston, EM, MF? Don't compare them to non-ECNL teams please. We will see this fall how much stronger when everyone plays for keeps.
SO why is playing for this team bad? If you want to leave go for it - but don't say they are badW3, T2, L4 (only 1 by +2)3-2 WORLD CLASS FC '01 CHARLTON (NYE) 1-0 FSA FC U13 GIRLS PRE-ECNL 01 (CT) 1-0 PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY AJAX (NJ)0-0 PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY STORM (NJ) 1-1 FC STARS OF MASSACHUSETTS NORTH UNITED (MA) 0-4 SOUTH SHORE SELECT U13 ELITE (MA)0-2 MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC NORTH EAST NPL (NJ) 1-2 EAST MEADOW HOTSHOTZ (NYE) 0-1 ALBERTSON FURY '01 PRE-ECNL (NYE)
What team are you referring to?
Does it look like a good team?
It looks like it could be 1 of 7 NJ teams.
STA. Very good team, excellent club.
10:09 Yeah a nice team from the looks of things, 2-2-1 vs the NorthEast NPL Pre-ECNL Flight with a GD = 0, but somehow people can't see past all the GS points they have?This is a NON-ECNL team that plays a lot to makeup for being excluded from ECNL - so guess what when you are a good team and good teams win more times than not. But some how this gets over looked because they have the most GS points in NJ or GS is some how a crap tool.
They are on par with all the other 3-7 ranked teams outside of ECNL teams. Nobody claimed they weren't on the same level as Wildcats, 3 NE NPL teams. No better no worse.
