This is my take away from ODP last night: $50 registration fee to play small sided for about 90 minutes. $200 ODP fee nets you exactly TWO practices. $250 Mini Camp fee which is no longer an overnight camp experience - the camp fee hasn't changed since last year despite not having to house and feed players for the weekend anymore. PLUS, if you want you can pay additional fees to attend a regional camp. I want to be a soccer coach when I grow up!
NJ ODPThe tryout fee is $50;U13-17 players being selected to the Final State Team will pay a State Fee, Event fees and a Region 1 ID Camp fee which could total up t approximately $1650. PA ODP$650 ODP FEE$325 Virginia Friendlies$650 Region 1 Camp$1,625NY ODP$35 Registration fee$250 ODP Fee$150 Training$250 Tournament Team$550 Region 1 Camp$1,235
If IGFA "borrowed" from the WC web site then they likely didn't bother to proof read the copy and missed the ECNL reference. Nice.
really that expensive? i agree with having clubs that discourage girls to participate at ODP . We are getting caught up with parent's ego and titles "my daughter was selected " and we forgot what our girls really need.
Why can't a defender be the best player?
Wow. This is when I can flat out say that PDA is worth it.This is sad that people have to pay this when they are over paying for club fees already and not getting the exposure they deserve. Who falls for this and does this anymore?
That's exactly what IGFA did.. Take the phrase " to join its travel soccer programs for the 2012/13 season. Players will be selected to participate in our Elite Clubs National League" and google it. The first hit is WC's facebook page. Their philosophy is lifted from the WC site too.
Parents who think their kid being selected for ODP in 2014 is some sort of an accomplishment are really clueless. But then again these same people were willing to pay $50 just for a tryout. That is insane (pay to tryout, really?). Me too, in my next life I want to be a soccer coach right here in NJ. Plenty of money to be had!
50-60 kids at MF tryout, too funny.. Let's break it down like a fraction for y'all! MF North has Black and Blue let's say that both teams have 18, that's 36 plus you add into the mix the NJX girls so that's another 18 making the count somewhere around 54... so what your really saying is 6 new kids showed up!!! Pathetic!!!
LOL... THAT'S MEAN
Actually only 18 girls there in black MFA shirts. Rest where outside players.
4.24 who cares?
MF had a great tryout and lots of girls came more then expected shows that is the place to be for top soccer
PDA is the place to be, then MF. MF has some growing up to do. I went to both last year, didn't make the move, but MF was a little more frightening for me and my daughter. PDA has the better name, reputation, facilities, tournaments and over all program. It's tough to compete with number one, but we need more like them. I hope WC gets it together too, they have a ways to go as well. Made MF, didn't make PDA A team, or would have gone. I'm seriously considering dragons now, if don't make storm. I know, I'm dumb because I won't be on ecnl.
More than expected???? It was explained before. 3 teams of 18 mf black, blue and njx. Rumor was there was supposed to b over a hundred. Oh thats right 50 different girls will be there on wednesday
Second Tier Academy I think everyone on this blog now knows when your tryouts are taking place. If no one is responding to your posts it's becsuse you are just a very very expensive town quality travel team.
I have been checking out all the teams up north for tryouts and not liking what I see. Started with the igfa website and the ecnl verbiage, nj crush has odp all over it and price scares me with team alone, stallions is a turn off, sdfc is sub par these days, tsf has below average team and WCFC looks like they are in downward mode. Are there any good town teams like the Americans at u13 left? I'm not driving to PDA or MF. I wish we had teams like SJEB up here, maybe not the top of the top, but good value and solid clubs.
Your daughter must be a superstar if she is too good for all those clubs.
7:11 just shut up and keep your daughter home.
5:52 blowing alot of smokeNo kid that made the MF Black team did not accept last year. Nice tryJust trying to talk up PDA. Lets see which program is better at end of year, then the year after that. No one can argue that MF is already a club in ECNL that is being recognized in 1st year
PDA tuition due before first game of new season. Usually 2nd week of August. Not once you are notified that you mad the club.
PDA is hating on MF today so bad. If you are thinking about going to try outs with these troll of parents, have fun. Some of the nastiest people. Why are they hating so much? They are that scared that they are going to be second to MF from here on out. LOL.
MF mentioning PDA again, think it's called inferiority complex.
Very accurate, PDA posting on here throwing out so many negative comments towards Match Fit. Let it go, can have 2 solid clubs in NJ. There is room for both clubs to coexist in same area.
YOU people are a sorry excuse for human beings.
PDA SCARED BOO
You people who? Is that for the PDA parents it the MF parents? Too my recollection, I have never heard a MF blogster bragging about how MFA was better than the PDA. Maybe I heard the MF u12 team was a better team, but never a better club. Face the facts. In this age group, MF is where it's at. MF has better players regardless of where they are coming from. Go MFA!
"Unless she was replacing your kid, you would love to have her on your team, dope."Yes ,Mom she's the best. Good Luck with the Dragons.Of course your team should have no problems beating them with her on the team.GFA just cant help themselves.
They are certainly favored
MF is the best team and going to be the best club within the year. PDA is going down in quality and the other clubs well are just other clubs. MF is on its way to be number one and you haters will see it soon
At tomorrows Match Fleece tryouts there be 50/50's, silent auctions and church offering baskets. Everybody will be required to buy a $50 parking pass. Players are not allowed to bring any water. It must be purchased from MF @ $25 a bottle. Please be careful when parking your cars not to hit a Jaguar parent putting flyers on car windshields. They are not very bright and may attempt to place a flyer on your window while your driving.
