I think it will be WC Charlton vs. NYSC in the finals,EMHS have not done well against WC A-Team, and NYSC has the easier draw throughout. Hopefully the fields won’t still be frozen on 3/22.Interesting EDP match-up on 3/23 NYSC vs. EMHS, but on the big field, not the ridiculous 9 v 9 format of NY Cup, either way great, and competitive soccer all around.
I think that WC vs EM will be a nice battle for all the girls playing - the 1st of many more to follow.#2
Thats a rough draw for EM and Charlton
Wonder why NEFC pulled out of the MSC top Flight, perhaps the weather, or the disorganization, either way, its a loss for the tournament, too many NJ teams in the top flight, WTF????

Wow, is that true - no NEFC?They should rework the brackets.
OK - I see they did rework the groupsCalvert Crew now in bracket where NEFC wasNice work, Manhattan SC organizers.
Yes, they moved force up to top flight and moved calvert over to where nefc was to keep only 2 jersey teams on each side of bracket.
Thanks PA guy#2
So it looks like this board covers NJ, NY & PA anyone else have opinions on some other R1 states?#2
Question: Are many players attending clubs like PDA,MF, WC now for sessions to be seen for next year?
I haven't seen anyone new yet at our U12 trainings, but I am personally bringing my older aged daughter to training sessions with a new club that we would switch to after spring season. I see lots of this happening at the older groups.
I have attended one of those clubs above. I attended 3 sessions, and to date counted 15 total new girls during those 3 sessions. Yes I paid attention to see if my kid had a chance. I can only assume, more attended those sessions I did not attend
Those that want to join one of these teams for u13 are being seen now. They are not waiting for tryouts.
7:38 then your daughter is doing good, if she was called back for 3 sessions. My guess is that if the girl isn't a fit she would not be asked back.#2
8:55 Just a quick question how do you know they are all new girls - how familiar are you with this team that you know all the girls on this team?#2
#2 I wish I could say this was the case. Coach told me that he would never evaluate any player unless the player attends 3 -5 sessions. This would allow the new players to feel comfortable. At first, my opinion was my daughter would be just fine after first session, I was wrong she was so nervous. Glad coach gave her the opportunity.
Yeah, I could see how nerves can come into play with a 12 year old. No matter how tough they think they are. Sounds like a good coach - a few training sessions and then at tryouts on the same field with all the girls looking for a spot.Good Luck 9:07 - I hope your kid makes the team#2
Some good reading here this evening. Thanks to all the quality contributors!
9:07 I agree with you, I heard the same thing from MF coach. He will not provide any feedback on any kid until he sees my kid or any kid in action for at least 3-5 sessions. I thought the same exact thing, really, what my kid? You should be able to see her ability right away! I too was wrong, I was appreciated that he stated this to me, cause I left thinking man my kid did not play like she can. After speaking to her she said she felt uncomfortable and did not know anyone. Even though he did a great job having the girls make her feel welcomed. I drove home thinking, thank god this was not a one time and done situation
Holy crap this MF coach loves himself. We get it dude, you're awesome..
Your wrong on the cup review. I think SJEB can beat Ajax
Probably going to be another 5-1 game
Getting a little ahead of things. SJEB must first get the result against Wall. Take care of that first.
11:14am I am one who wrote this. My kid attended a PDA session of yours and your coach was no where as professional.
Ajax wins will depend on coach subbing correctly now that the roster is full....$$$
What's next, 1:09? Crush tryout?
Looks like another set of friendlies have been scheduled at World Class: WC, EM, MF, and West Chester United (PA) all participating. March 8-9.
No PDA ?
Why invite a team you know will decline the invitation?
I would be salty too if my child was cut!
March 8-9 is not at WC. It is being hosted by MF.
Hmmm. My sources still say WC, not MF. But I will dig deeper.
MF hosting friendlies weekends March 8-9,15-16
Hope everyone enjoys the temps. next week at Randall's Island. High temp of 31 low 16. With wind I would say it will feel like 10. Enjoy!!
what teams are playing those weekends?
11:17, please refrain from being a jerk, and don’t you think we ALL want a nice sunny day @ 60 degrees?If the team/club says we play, then we play, if you have the option to not attend, then you are on the wrong blog. This is for competitive girls, and yes, there is a difference, and if you don’t know by now, you never will, and it has nothing to do with money, its all about commitment, so, are you with us, or against us?
The best teams are playing, some of the best in the region, not all, but enough to make it extremely competitive, and if your kids team is not playing, you should put on a coat, a hat, gloves, and boots, and join us, we are Soccer Strong, and you better believe it...
What teams are playing at STA?
You might manage in your fur coat...sitting in your range rover.I agree it's to cold to be playing soccer in the 20 degree weather, especially at this young age.
Manhattan already cancelled numerous age groups.
Range Rover, eh?Thanks for the upgrade.
We are ready for the 8AM game next weekend. kickoff weather forecasted to be in mid-twenties on the Island.
How many college and pro games are played in inclement weather? Your kid could probably care less about playing in cold or snow. Quit being a whiny, narcissistic baby. Maybe go find an indoor sport for your kid to compete in like basketball? Or would you still complain about the weather? Can't drive - there is a 1/2 inch of snow on the ground. You signed your kid up to play during winter months. Be an adult and deal with it. Or have someone else take your kid and you stay home. No one wants to listen to your selfish moaning.
My kids play basketball and many other sports, unlike some. Most real athletes can compete in multiple sports at highest level and its healthy for them. soccer is not a winter sport you moron and nobody signs up for that. Indoor training and playing is fine. Read the guidelines on playing safe soccer, you can find it on MSC tournament website. It's dangerous and very un-healthy to play soccer in polar temps. These are 11 year old girls, just because you are obsessed, doesn't mean they are.
http://www.msckickoffclassic.org/Cold/index_E.htmlRead it, you might learn something. I'm sure your ten year old will appreciate.
If you feel that way then why agree to let your team's coach sign up for the tournament? I guess that makes you the moron.
Simple solution: pull your kid. Do not allow her to play. Instead of whining on this board, be a parent, and tell the coach you are being a parent and do not think it is beneficial for your kid to play in cold temperatures.
MSC already cancelled age grouos and more on the way.
Did you go to school?
Why does the commen sense have to be at the parental level? Club/tournament first objective should be safety of the players first last and everywhere in between. Would you tough guys let your daughter play hurt if it meant a spot on their squad? I didn't think so......
Every parent should read manhattan weather guidelines. Just pure common sense to most of us. But there are those macho parents who obvious don't have common sense so tournament must post guidelines. A MUST READ,,
I am sure teams will drop out b/c of weather. We all hope one is yours.
@ 7:07Why? Because they value the health of their squad over a perception of toughness? Point being whoever is running the "show" should do what's right and follow their own posted guidelines.
Maybe everyone should stop speculating about a weather FORCAST and wait to see what the conditions actually are on game day. Seems folks think they can predict the future here, if so I need some lottery numbers...
Well.....Friday, Saturday, Sunday this week were exactly as forecast on weather.com
Tempature forecasting is very accurate within 10 days.
What brackets at MSC were already cancelled?
Fire wood for sale. Look for my truck. Also leg warmers, hand earners, hats, uggs, you need warm weather clothing it will be ony truck,
I thought this was a dumb conversation until I just watched the news. It's going to be brutal, playing in the teens some games.
You have problems, I have solutions:http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/big-buddy-heater/34073But the Crush girls don't need this, because they are already on fire.

If Manhattan SC adheres to the Weather Guidelines that they have posted on the Kickoff Classic Website, the tournament will likely be cancelled. cold weather guidelines
Not sure I follow all this Cancel event postings. I'm sure they will handle it the best way they can in their opinion.PS. Is this because we know their admins visit this site? We have a push by some parents that might want to see the event cancelled? or is this by a rival club looking to start some trouble?Either way I get the posts - it might be super cold - but every team that applied knew this could happen, why else would you apply for a tournament at the end of February early March in the North east? #2
The comments about canceling the MSC tournament because of good weather are laughable, and I am pretty sure its from the parents of clubs that are not participating, what is your agenda? If we play, we play. If we don’t, we don’t. What is the big deal junior weather man, jealous?
I just was checking their site to see what the weather policy was and came across that guideline, so I thought I would share it. No conspiracy Dick Tracey
So you think we are morons, and don’t know about that link? Are you just trying to help? I doubt it, no reason for you to post that unless you have a vested interest in the event not being played, or you are a dope, so which is it?
You got me, I'm jelious that we are not playing in 20 degree weather at 8am.
I would be jelious, too, but since that is not a word I don't know how to proceed, is that some kind of jellyfish thingy?
How about tipping your hat to all the players that will be there at 8am to represent their team, their club, and who will lead by example, for all the premier girls to follow. These are not robots, they will not have fun playing in those conditions, but if their club says they play, well then...they play.
12:55 no agenda, it is what I said it was. If you think ever person who posts on this site is some U12 soccer obsessed douche bag who thinks they can influence the outcome of an event by posting on an anonymous blog, well then yes, I think you're a moron.
Let's all agree, we are just scared that CRUSH will win this event...
Just bought my daughter brand new Nike cleats, you guys are all dead!
Like I said, on fire:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9N6AdGBWIE
@1:02Isn't it supposed to fun? Hopefully all the college scouts will be there early on Saturday so they can see how well the girls handle the conditions.
I take crush 4 to 1 to win.Bring it on guys...
Crush is not even going to win their bracket, much less the flight, stick to making corny self-promo videos.
NewsflashWE live in the Northeast part of the country. It is cold. It can snow until April. Also in case you do not know, Companies like Underarmor make very nice clothing for people in the NORTHEAST to wear on cold days. I hope this helps those who are new to our area.Return to your normal team bashing.Thank you
Refuse to buy underarmorAll money tied up in team fees and gas
Crush should be wary of New York SC -and Imperials are never a walkover. But smart money is on winner of South Shore and Crush going to final.So early....anything can happen.
New York SC, never heard of them, are they from Manhattan?
It's nice that you are trying to your bracket look tough, but it's a walk in the park. All 4 teams are average at best.
Dear Average at Best,Please name a team that is worthy of your praise, enlighten us all, we need perspective, can you help?Thank you!
Our entire age group is weak, this is why you think you are so good. I'm not impressed with any teams, including ours. Most teams are playing kick and run.
Agree, even PDA is a average team for their club. Scorpions is only solid team I have seen...so far.
I am sorry but our age group is not weak. there are many strong teams in NJ alone
"Agree, even PDA is a average team for their club."Good luck

There are 4 elite teams, brainiac at 7:462 in each bracketOther 4 teams are next level.
Okay sorry, you are elite and premiere. When paying as much as you and having three coaches, you must be elite.I'm elite too when I over pay and fly first class.
11:09, please let us know who the elite teams are in each bracket, so that I can bet on those teams. Are you offering any goals, what is line, what is the over and under? Are any go their star players injured? Will weather help, or hurt these elite teams. Please, just share your thoughts, its nice to share.
Personally, I believe that negative comments about any team are petty, bitter, and given the context, utterly, and completely loser-ish. So, who is a loser?These are all elite teams, just ask their fans.
As to the weather this weekend....My daughter actually likes the cold weather for soccer, it's the 100 degree heat that is tough to play soccer in
How would she know? Does she play in this weather?
Something is up because the schedules for Manhattan Kickoff are not available.
They are rearranging the games, and perhaps canceling entire age groups, that would be the prudent thing to do, I would guess that the tourney will now only be for u14-u18 players, and their elated parents, yay!
Of course she does, whatever it takes to be an elite player...on a premiere Crush, I'm mean club. This is my dream, not hers baby. We will have more got soccer points than anyone after our next 4 tournaments in a row and two leagues this spring.
Why would they do this to us? This is not right.
Look at the field listings, it has shrunk by at least half, no way they can get game in without canceling ,any of the groups entirely, especially u12, and u13, since they need the big turf fields for the older teams, make other plans people!http://events.gotsport.com/events/fields.aspx?EventID=33873&FieldID=
Looking ahead to Fall 2014/2015 NPL/ECNL Teams. GS Projected Flight Values prior to Spring Events. Curious to see how much this changes after the June Events. Yes. I'm thinking ahead to warmer temps - good luck to all the Girls playing this weekend.9,500 = Pre-ECNL 6,000 = NYCSL NPL5,750 = EDL NPL2,313 = NE Girls NPL#2
Looks like the jealous parents lobby got their way and put the kibosh on the Manhattan Kickoff.... lol dopes.
The Tournament is ON, we just need to know if the entire U12G group will be canceled, or just the lower brackets. There might also be some field switching, but if I were you, I would start planning tonight.
Oh no... The jellyass parents paid off Al Roker to make it snow...
Really, below is what the fuss is all about? My daughter has played in worse conditions than that - and for those of us that have played I'm sure we have also played in worse conditions than that.Sat Mar 1Few Snow Showers 37° Sun Mar 2Light Wintry Mix 35°People need to relax and let the EVENT people do their job. Your daughter's team applied to a Northeast tournament in early March - we all know we are at the mercy of the weather - can we move on from this please?#2
I really don’t think its a temperature issue, its the conditions of various fields. No way that any games are going to be played on grass, therefore its just turf, and in that regard, the filed space is limited. They are suppose to announce today, everyone, and their mother (literally) are waiting....
But, but, but...#2...Range Rovers! Crush Copters! Stupid ECNL parents!!! I need something to complain about! I need someone towards whom I can direct my anger and jealousy!!
Crush copter is not going to help Tsunami this weekend, unless it has a mini-gun, that might help, a little, but still no guarantees ; P
9:09 has it right - now that the forecast has the temps in the high 20s/30s.Previously we were looking at 15-18 degrees with 12-15 MPH winds at 7 AM....
Problem with temps would be the earlier games when its going to be 10 degrees. And no at age 12 we did not play in these conditions. But back then it was about the kids not the parents ego and the $ for the clubs.So what is your line in the sand as a parent #2. How low would the temp need to be for you to hold your daughter out?
"We didnt do it back at U12"Why are you here if you are not currently a U12 participant?
10:44 don't be a dope. The poster meant us parents didn't play in below freezing temps when we were 12. I don't think anyone here is a U12 Participant, we are parents of participants. If you are a U12 Participant, you should be in school not on this message board.
I think if the fields are clear that 32 degrees and mostly clear at 11 AM Saturday (figure 28-30 at 8 AM) and 32 degrees with a wintry mix for the 12 noon final Sunday should be fine.
#2 - like 99% of us - wouldnt hold his daughter out. He'd allow the organizers and most importantly his daughter's club to make the decision.It's a team sport - and even if you feel it is wrong to play in certain conditions - you dont let your teammates downIf decisions you do not agree with keep getting made. then maybe you voice your opinion - and in the severest of cases - you depart.
Has anyone looked in your backyard recently? If the snow has melted off your lawn, is the grass in any shape to walk on?You don't think that their fields still have snow on them. How can they run a tournament on these fields. They can't. It's not about how cold it will be, it's all about the fields. But all you pansy asses care about is what to complain about next
Looking at the hourly weather reports for nyc it is around 12 degrees colder at 8am than it is at the high temp for each day/so 33-35 high sat and sun means around 20-23 temp at 8am.
Premier brackets of U15 and up only "might play" The rest is scratched.
11:33, how do you know for sure???
Line in the sand? I don't have one - I chucked that out when we decided to take our kid to a club to play premier soccer. The Club/Team/Event People make the decision to play or not. If they say yes, then my daughter will be at the field ready to play event thought we may not like it.Some things are out of my control. When they play, where they play, how they play, how many minutes she plays, what events they play in. She is part of a team and if the team plays she will play the role her team needs her to play.If I didn't want to travel 3 hours to a game she wouldn't be playing travel soccer - If i didn't want her to play when it was to cold or hot - she wouldn't play travel soccer. That's just me though.#2
#2 is the guy on here that I would most like to have a beer with. Seems like a decent guy.
Updated info from the site. 2014 MSC Kick-Off ClassicManhattan Soccer Club is currently assessing field conditions and monitoring the U12 Section of the Youth Soccer Talk Blog to make a determination about the Kick Off Classic Soccer Tournament scheduled for this weekend, February 28- March 2 2014. We have taken down the schedule to make changes as some parents think we should play and others think we shouldn't. We will have a final determination by Wednesday, as we will have an accurate view of the opinions of the U12 parents and the fields by then. Thank you for your patience as we try to fully assess the situation.
#2Health and welfare of my child is my #1 job as a parent and I couldn't absolve myself of that just for soccers sake. Has nothing to do with driving commitment etc. Would you allow your child to play hurt? If there are no lines for you the answer would be yes.
I hope your child can breathe OK through that bubble wrap...
Just wish MSC would post their final decision already!!! If they are doing only U15 and up why keep the younger brackets waiting to find out if they are playing.
Tournament administrators wish to send it all out in one message, I'd guess.
Personally, I don't like playing games in this weather. By my later years coaching I would never attend an outdoor tournament here in the Northeast between Thanksgiving and April Fool's. Between the frozen ground and cold temperatures, they were neither fun nor produced quality soccer that was of any value to the players. At this point, however, the decision is out of my hands. And although my daughter's team is not playing outdoors this weekend, they will be practicing outdoors early Saturday morning. She'll survive the cold, as will all the other players in action this weekend.
Thanks PDA Dad. Have fun Saturday.
Has my child missed games because she was ill? Yes. Hurt? Not yet, but I'm sure that will happen some day (worst nightmare). Of course she is number #1 and her health comes first, that's why I'm #2.SO I keep my child home because it's to cold. The event is still on - the rest of her team shows up - so not only do they have to play in the cold - now they have one less player because I thought it was to cold for my child to play when the event thought it was safe and the guy/girl I trust the most to watch over her when she plays didn't pull the team. Now imagine a few of us didn't show. ALl you can do is show up and hope for the best.We all have different lines in the sand. I just hope mine is the right one for my kid.#2
PS. I'm really #3 because the wife is #2. But i like #2 because of what else it stands for :)
Don't justify your parenting to the dolts on this board #2.
Thanks 2:36 it's all good. Good luck to all the kids that are playing what ever age group.#2
Every negative comment is not from PDABut I do understand why you dislike themThanks crush dad
Nothing to dislikeDivision would be weaker without them
Good luck to all the girls playing, dress warm! As a healthcare professional I have to advise you to tell your daughters NOT to head the ball this weekend as the ball will be too hard with no give.
forget about it if there is precipitation and the ball gets wet.. it can freeze and be really dangerous
So who is playing in the WC/MF event the following weekend?
The Manhattan Soccer Club Kick Off Classic 2014 Tournament is assessing the Youth Soccer Blog and field situation. We will have a new updated and truncated schedule posted on the website by 7pm Wednesday February 26, 2014.

Can you confirm the Match Fit fields are playable?
Any word on DTS Tournament?Thanks in advance
I blame all the confusion with Manhattan tourn on George Bush.
How many fields in northern NJ have you seen that ARE playable?

TBH, I am happy that they are not playing this outside weekend, its too cold, and Saturday morning at 7am on Randall’s Island will be brutal. Feel sorry for the u13 girls, and their parents. This is also a parking issue, with all teams only getting 3 parking passes, the parents have to take a shuttle bus to the fields, yes, no warm car to sit in during the breaks, brutal.In retrospect, are the GS points worth more than your daughters health, I say no way!
Forget about outside tourneys until April, there is another foot of snow coming on Monday, this weather is for the birds, well, not even them...
Looks like PDA Storm is playing in u13 bracket of STA tournament.That's curious

This might be a bad Spring with a bunch of games being pushed back.With all this snow and April Showers the grass fields are not going to be in any shape to play games.Unless they play on Turf it looks like a bunch of games get pushed this Spring as 7:29.#2
Unless there's snow on the ground or rain on the actual days of the tournament, the MAPS Spring Challenge should be ok. Those fields are usually fantastic and drain quickly.Temps and wind can be a different story though.
The girls are disappointed, they trained very hard this winter, and really wanted to compete against such great teams. We never underestimate an opponent, and never-ever listen to the negative comments, although they do bring a good laugh on occasion. We, as a group, take soccer very seriously, and as the spring EDP schedule indicates, we have more than enough games to develop the team. We are not perfect, nor average, somewhere in the middle, and we are always looking to improve, see at the fields!
10:16 I love to read "take soccer very seriously". It sounds like you are in a good place. Lots of luck.#2
Thank you Mr. 2, we will take your good wishes, and mix them with some of ours, add dedication, attention, and a little self-confidence, and we should have a good season. We have a strong core, and hopefully the edges will improve, and yes, we do take running around with soccer ball seriously, we are all-in, and let the chips land where they fall...
Wow, I would say the crush guy is over the top obsessed.
I am not a Crush parent, but I video-tape like one!
11:23 No need to know the team/clubAs a parent of a kid not on the edge how do you want the edges to improve via development or replacement? As a parent of a kid on the edge how do you want the edges to improve via development or replacement? As a coach how do you want the edges to improve via development or replacement? #2
PS. Your team is playing in a regional league where results at u12 league games can lead to a national title.#2
Just catching up for the start of Spring season:1. Crush players moved to Storm?2. Match Fit still undecided on where teams will practice/play in Fall?. NJX is now MF?3. Is East Brunswick still a team?4. PDA will field a team in TR this fall?Thinking about moving my daughter to a different team this fall. Trying to keep up with the changes in this age bracket. #2- You bring a good level headed approach to the site.
Just for the record there is no u12 regional league that gives teams a chance to win a national title#2
Since you asked Mr. 2, here is my response.1. A little of both, some have conflicting interests, such as another sport, that interferes with their personal development, only serious players need apply, and I say that with utmost respect and admiration for the girls referenced, great kids, and parents.2. Cannot answer, not relevant to us.3. Again, I am just a parent, although I was a great AYSO coach!Agreed, club/team not important, since I think most parents feel this way, but that’s just me, and my two-cents...
12:54 my opinions:1. no idea - but according to this board it sounds like 2 made a move.2. We will find out soon I think as clubs start to release their tryout schedules.3. Didn't EB merge with STA?4. PDA and TR merged to create PDA ShoreI am also having the same thoughts, I will probably make a list talk to my daughter about my plan - let her rank the list and hope that #1 has the first tryout and she is offered a roster spot otherwise it can get very complicated very fast.Good Luck to your kid #2
Spears bubble kid dad and a few others should get an apology of some sorts. Manhattan completely canceled now. Who would have thought a couple dads could see that playing this weekend was insane but it took all the experts in charge till now to reach the same conclusion.Bunch of wimps. Gonna drivebe up anywaya and haveready my daiughter jugle for a couple hours just because.
2 Crush players now with PDA StormBut just one came from the U12The Crush U12 first team lost 3 altogether, promoted one player and went from 17 to 15 players.Thus there is room to add players - from the B team - or from the spring tryout - for Fall 2015. ELITE PLAYERS IN AREA TAKE NOTE.
Looks like we will have some u12 Soccer this weekend - The Schedules are back up for:DTS Winter Invitational Girls 2014(3/1/2014 - 3/2/2014) Let's see how the PA teams stack up to JPS and NJSA for a GS Projected Flight value of 2,250 NJSA 04 NPL-01 CEDAR (NJ) HULMEVILLE SC DYNAMO (PAE) JERSEY PREMIER SOCCER FLASH (NJ) LOWER MERION SC HERRICANES (PAE) YARDLEY MAKEFIELD SOCCER BANSHEES (PAE) Note: I'm the only fool who cares about flight values - I'm sure none of these teams can give a rats you know what about them.#2
#2, keep doing your thing. There are those among us that appreciate your effort.

What team did the other two players go to?15 players is nice for playing time, just need to be careful of injuries at this ageGood luck
How does a round robin series of friendlies get arranged between one team from VA, one team from Western PA, and one team from South Jersey? And how do you know about it? Have you outed yourself, #2? Are you a Rage parent? I won't judge....
oh, my dear #2, it seems that you are done being an anon., and I for one am glad, and I do judge you, I judge you to be a good guy, whatever your team, your answers are always polite and smart.Keep on Truck’in...
I was able to confirm today that MF tryouts for all ECNL teams will be down at Raritan. Even though tryouts are down south. U12 to be U13 team will be playing up North.
Bravo to Manhattan SC for handling this unfortunate circumstance in a thoughtful, professional manner. Well done.
Absolutely agree. Appears MSC handled decision making in a thoughtful deliberate way, regardless of player parent opinions
I'm not a rage parent and even if i was I would still say I'm not a rage parent.

#2, are you targeting those teams for #1 this fall?PDA or MFA
Well, just proves that you do your research, since they will be competitive teams for years to come, hope we play against your team someday....
@ #2If those are your target teams for your daughter then I'm sure you know that #1 should be introduced to the coaches and the teams well before try-outs.She should be actively working out with the teams before the try-out sessions. The chances of making one of these teams goes up exponentially if the coach already knows what your daughter can do well before try-outs.lots of luck to your daughter!
Good Luck #2, you would be a welcome addition to any sideline.Top Ten teams 1-PDA Storm (State Cup Champs)2-NJX (Big, strong team)3-MF Black (Need to see them beat PDA or NJX in an elimination game)4-Rage (still probably thinking about them at U11)5-PDA Ajax (Won tough EDP last Fall)6- Crush (Curious if recent departures hurt them)7- JPS (Under the radar, very good team)8- PDA Dragons (Play good team soccer)9-STA (Can they adjust from 8v8 quickly?)10 NJ Force- (Great defense, can they find some goals?)This is just my opinion, not trying to offend any teams I missed. To be fair, I tend to over rate Rage based on their U11 play, This Spring should show where they are now.. Good luck and health to everybody in the Fall.
I would switch Crush and Ajax
no GFA and no COPA and no WILDCATS?
Just like a poster mentioned a few days ago, all average at best....
what teams would be better?
TY, I'm sure all these teams are great, but as the poster said their top 10. I think Spring will be a fun and stressful time for all the kids with playing outdoors/warmer weather and tryouts. I will be happy for my little one if she makes her target team but sad because some other little one may have lost out on a spot. I became such a "softy" when my little one was born (I love every second of it - I see things a lot different these days) while I understand this is premier soccer - I can't help but think what if that was my little one. While I get the entire train with the team thing so the coach can see your kid prior to tryouts- that has to make for an uncomfortable situation for kids and parents.I think the Spring EDP season will answer a bunch of questions this year and come fall I'm sure a few PA teams will probably join the fun#2
TSF PDA Shore
Do you really believe that your kid will get a fair look from these Academy teams that are pretty much set? That's my biggest fear right now. Anyone else feel the same. Do you really think these teams will make cuts?
11:23 is that you???
12:10 They will if the coach feels it improves the team or the club. At the end of the day - not everyone sees our kid like we do. To us they are a STAR and one of the top players on their team. To some one else they might be a player on the edge or they might share the same views.No Academy team is set at u12 or u13 in my opinion, but what do I know. Some girls improve while others lose interest and it will all show on the field. The ball is in our kids court when they tryout or train - what they do with it is totally up to them. Regardless if we think it's fair or not. All we can do is hope that coach happens to see them playing well not making a mistake (which they all do), I would just hope he or she is looking the other way then :).#2
