U13G / U13 Girls Youth Soccer

U13G  / U13 Girls youth soccer seems to offer the most teams and the widest diversity of talent.

Where these players will end up is anyone guess.

Welcome to the ride.

Nice of you to take time to rank teams by state and ECNL based on that it looks as if there are more stronger Non-ECNL teams. So if those girls on those non-ecnl teams never leave their clubs would the landscape change and ECNL end up opening their brackets to quality teams with players based on history of play. Doesn't make sense they try to seclude themselves as there are so many players they are missing and will try other routes to play collegiately.

STA, Wildcats, YMS, Penn Classics can easily outduel ECNL's top 3. If those ECNL board members were smart they would not keep things secluded as it will only draw the parents that ultimately pay to play.

Anonymous said...

Keep believing that...... Check out how many points those teams have received for their league play??? They all have 2 tough games a season for those 10,000 points..... Again, why GS point chasers fall off. It has already begun. How did those NJ teams fair in state cup when the more talented teams played this Spring. Already separating and will be light years behind the others come U14. Just the reality EVERY year.... Not just this year.... EVERY year this happens.

1:00pm don't know what you are smoking if you think wildcats,YMS, STA, etc...can compete with storm and MF.

Wildcats can't compete with PDA 4th team. They have about 11K points from EDP league play and 5K from their town team SC.

Rankings for 13 yr old girls are ridiculous.

Not to the 13 year olds.

Since PDA cross rosters their players, there is no 4th team
or 2nd or 3rd, the only team that is as it states it is would be the ECNL team

Anonymous said...

Rankings in general are ridiculous - but they are fun and get the conversation going don't they.

Look why must you say STA, YMS, Wildcats etc can't compete with Storm and MF?
You are top of the pyramid and when I posted STA's record vs Pre-ECNL teams I bet you were shocked to see how good they did.

What you are forgetting is that these teams will always do good when they play the ECNL teams head to head because the ECNL teams will users players that didn't play much in league games but are still part of the team. So while it may not be your best 11 they still are on the same team. So just in case you missed it the NJ GS #1 team did okay against the mighty ECNL didn't they. It's the same thing with the Lamar Hunt Cup sometimes MLS don't send their best 11 and they get knocked out early. Don't throw the kids under the bus that played in these games, they did their best against a solid team even though you are trying to make them look bad so some of their players will jump ship. That's a pretty good tactic.

3-2 WORLD CLASS FC '01 CHARLTON (NYE)
1-0 FSA FC U13 GIRLS PRE-ECNL 01 (CT)

I have a hard time seeing boca in that top ten, they moved up to 7 recently from edp cup spring challenge. Looking at that field in general it is what you would expect, njcsa, pda, mf, tsf, sta and wildcats, only one standing out is boca, one thing about gs points is you have to win to get them, and win in higher brackets, if you win in a lower bracket you get 150 points. I am not sure how sustainable these points are, but it is some sort of barometer on how teams are doing. And yes, the girls care, talk about it in group messaging.

Anonymous said...

GS rankings are ridiculous. Good luck with those rankings that mean absolutely nothing in the end. It's your kids training that matters people.

Anonymous said...

3:35 No kidding - This isn't about training and development - that will happen regardless of GS. GS is for fools like me - that want to have some fun with scenarios and how things play out.

I could careless if she plays ECNL or not. I'm a soccer guy and I know my kid is getting top training so you can bet i'm going to have some fun with her soccer experience. We do as a family and I do as a soccer fan :)

Now back to the GS rankings for all us non-ECNL teams. PA still going to have PA NCS entered manually, NY still has both state cups still going on and both of them plus NJ still have EDP, EDP NPL, NYCSL NPL, NorthEast Girls NPL league standings to be posted -the rankings will look different in another month before the Summer tournament series starts for the teams looking to get a head start on u14.

Looks like MF has joined NYCSL???

Dear Crush,

Can you please go out a beat STA this weekend, and at least make them sweat a little, and perhaps even make a run at the title yourselves?

Thank you!

It would be a good move to NYCSL. EDP is basically a JAGS league.

@5:11
I think Crush would be happy to oblige. But they are at a disadvantage this weekend with a bunch of girls injured or missing the game for ODP.

Anonymous said...

This MatchFit situation is interesting to me. BOTN is saying MF joined NYCSL NPL while their own website has the below for our age group.

U14 MF ECNL
u14 MF South = EDP NPL
u14 MF North = NE NPL

Wow -if the EDP NPL is able to add MF South NPL (NJX), PA Classics and Rage those would be 3 nice additions. Does PDA Shore also follow? What happens if EM adds a NPL team next year - does PDA keep both Dragons and Ajax or does one leave for NYCSLNPL or EDP NPL?

Come on NYCSL and EDP how about some press releases?

Anonymous said...

MF South NPL will no longer be NJX. The big pieces from that team will be on the ECNL team. MF EDP and NE NPL will not be competitive. Their ECNL team will be loaded with talent.

The MF ECNL will have more talent then PDA ECNL but PDA has better coaches and trainers.

Anonymous said...

Can a team like PA Classics, from a non-NPL club play in any division of EDP or are there separate divisions for NPL vs non NPL teams? If it's all the same can a non NPL team win and move on to nationals? And which season/division moves on? Our team will also be moving to EDP from PAGS next fall and was looking for some insight. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

8:06 Are you talking about at the club or at this age? If just at this age how would you know?

Well it looks like MF set up up their club the right way. So all the hate just doesn't fit. As an outsider this is how I see it - I'm sure everything will be clear in a few weeks but My guess would be

A: MF ECNL

B: MF NPL (EDP) as this will give them a path to the RCL and possibly the National League.But BOTN is reporting that MF joined NYCSL NPL which wouldn't make sense from a league standpoint - but would be great for the players as they would have access to ECNL/PDP or TIP

C: MF NENPL as this is truly a league with B teams only option up is ECNL with no PDP.

Anonymous said...

The only way any team can play NPL is if the NPL & EDP accepted the team.

EDP has a pyramid D1, D2 & MAPS just like PAGS and teams can set themselves up to still be eligible for NCS State cups and play US Club.

Some PAGS team history for you in EDP - so you can see how your team will stack up.

FALL 2014
D1 - 6: LEHIGH VALLEY UNITED 01 GIRLS W2, T2, L4, GD -5
D1 - 8: HARFORD FC UNITED THUNDER W1, T3, L4, GD -2

D2 - 1: WYOMING VALLEY SC '01 GIRLS W7, T0, L1, GD +15

SPRING 2015
D1 - 5: LEHIGH VALLEY UNITED 01 GIRLS W3, T1, L3, GD -3
D1 - 9: WYOMING VALLEY SC '01 GIRLS W1, T1, L5, GD -10
D2 - 1: HFC READY '01 W2, T2, L0, GD +5
D2 - 2: SOUTH CENTRAL PA 01 LADY LIONS W1, T1, L1, GD +1

Plus it looks like the Fall 2015 will have PA Classics and Rage enter the league.

This should give you an idea of how your team does when you compare yourself to the X-PAGS teams.

Good Luck

NE NPL will be a much better league next season than EDP NPL. TNE NE NPL always gets better at U14 and up. EDP NPL is kind of like Jags. You have a few tough games and then the rest are town teams. NE NPL will have plenty of talent as you will also have girls moving over to all of the academies in the entire NE as they want to get looked at to possibly work their way on to ECNL teams within those academies.....

8:06 - Since MF ECNL took most of the talent from NE NPL - How do you know how good the new talent is that are replacing the talent that moved to ECNL?
It's great that you have this uncanny knowledge of offers and talent of unnamed players that you have no clue of how good they are.

Anonymous said...

8:46 & 8:58

Thanks. But I see that Calvert played in the same division last fall as Wildcats NPL & STA NPL. I assume then the teams are "segregated" for the spring season only but that's where the national championship qualifier comes from. No "prize" at the end of fall other than a couple GS points and bragging rights? Doubt we would play EDP in spring anyway, especially if we couldn't move on. Just looking for something better than PAGS in the fall and that seemed to be the best option, so we moved over. If Rage, PAC and all the reg 1 league teams pull out, no ones left in pags anyway.

Anonymous said...

Wouldnt it be many MF Black players now playing NPL, along with what is left of the NJX group?

Decent team. Not sure if they could contend in NYCSL but you never know year to year.... players grow in stature and confidence and 1-2 new faces could really help a team

Anonymous said...

so if MF black is going to be the NE NPL team combined with NJX leftovers, what is happening to MF Blue players? They surely cannot be cutting an entire team?

Anonymous said...

@9:31am,

You have to think of EDP and EDP NPL (EDL) as two completely separate leagues, and those teams that are in the EDL play in both. You have your EDP schedule, and play within your division, with a few crossover games that serve essentially as friendlies for most teams. For the EDL teams, those crossover games make up their EDL schedule. These EDL teams are spread across all divisions, and regardless of how they finish within their own division, their standing in the EDL is based only on those EDL games.

But the EDL is club-based, so just because a team like Calvert or PA Classics next year may be as good or better than the EDL teams, unless the entire club is accepted, they can't play EDL.

Does that help?

Anonymous said...

And let's be honest, club-wide Calvert just isn't at that level. They'd be better served to move to R1. PAC is a different story. That would be a no brainer if they applied to EDL.

Anonymous said...

Only thing Wildcats learned is they don't have a coach they have a trainer who works on juggling and running. To much talent on team to stay much longer. Coaches koolaide is starting to taste stale. Much better options all around them now

Anonymous said...

I hear PL may also be playing EDP in the fall.

Anonymous said...

Just like Calvert, though, PL would also never be accepted to EDL. The team is elite but the club is garbage.

Anonymous said...

11:29 PM

I'd think STA might be missing some players tomorrow as well

And I dont think this is a must win for them

Anonymous said...

Wow so by reading this board EDP D1 can possibly add PL, 1776, PAC & Rage to Calvert, NJ Wildcats and others for regular EDP leagues games to qualify for State Cup NCS. WOW.

EDP if you read this board - scrap your North/Central/South thing - you might have a very strong D1.

PS. Why would PL leave RCL? or do they plan on doing both (smart move)?

11:33 correct all they have to do is beat NY Rush and MSC (revenge for the Fall forfeit) and they are in Indiana - I think it's safe to say

The battle in NPL is mostly for spring POINTS, as the seasons are separated and only the spring games go to the GS standings.

Crush could lose to STA and still go 5-2 and be ahead of NYSC (15 pts to 14), who they lost to.

Anonymous said...

There will also be current MF pre ECNL girls that will not be on next year's ECNL team that will be mixing in to the NE NPL pool..... Pretty strong NE NPL team if you ask me......

Anonymous said...

It was already a pretty strong NE NPL team, but if they just lost their better players to the ECNL team, and inherited the old ECNL players who weren't good enough for that level anymore, then it's hard to argue against the fact that they're taking a step backwards. It might not be a giant step, but it's definitely trending in the wrong direction.

Anonymous said...

I heard that MSC is changing the time of the game, again, and not letting STA know. Should be interesting if Crush can somehow pull-off the victory.

12:45 Are they taking the roster spots of the girls that didn't dress?
If yes, what makes you think they will dress?

Anonymous said...

1:34 PM, I can't answer that because I don't know anything about what's going on with Match Fit. I was just responding to 12:35. But regardless why would you then assume that the girls who don't dress currently for ECNL would make more of an impact than the girls that are replacing them in that role? What about this move would make them any better? Best case scenario they remain the same.

Like I said, it's already an impressive team, but this doesn't push them forward as far as I can tell so I'm not sure why it's even worth mentioning?

Anonymous said...

11:20

You're right. PL may not even be accepted in EDL. Club is a rec club. Looks like this may be the year PA Classics proves to be the better of the two.

Anonymous said...

Some of you people are very funny with your Matchfit comments. The truth is until they step out on the pitch nobody knows how good they will be. All 3 teams will look very different and probably be pretty strong. I do know that the NE NPL team has added a few girls from outside the organization so anybody that can sit here on May 29th and say this team wont be any good is a fool.

I do not understand why people care so much about a team or teams that their own daughter probably does not play for.

Anonymous said...

Don't be so sensitive. Nobody (or at least not me anyway) said the NPL team was going to be bad. But if you lose your best players, you're not replacing them with players of equal ability, no matter WHERE you're pulling them from. It's just a simple equation. Again, you won't be bad. You'll be quite good. Just not AS good. The original comment I was replying to was trying to suggest that bringing down the bottom 1/4 ecnl players was going to increase the talent level of the team. That would be true if they weren't being sent down to replace the top NPL players who were moving in the opposite direction.

Anonymous said...

11:20

Calling an entire club "garbage" makes me think you are bitter about something.

2:06

I have a suspicion you are also 11:20 responding to yourself(which is sad), but will give you the benefit of the doubt for a minute. Do you mean to say PL would not be accepted into an EDP league or the club would not be accepted into the NPL? If the latter, it seems odd since PA Classics also has not been accepted as of yet. Truth is I doubt either club has applied because geographically all the local competition in USYS. Both may do so in the near future as most all of EPA is jumping into EDP next fall. Both will likely get in along with clubs like HMMS, YMS, Rage, 1776 etc, as they all are similar. All are a step above town teams but none(with the possible exception of YMS) produce consistant quality squads year in and year out. So none will ever get to the next level ecnl. But they are similar to many clubs currently in the NPL, which I bet would like to expand into central PA.

You seem to think Penn Legacy is trying to be PDA and failing, but truth is they are trying to be who they are and succeeding. Like a number of other clubs their focus is on developing young players. Taking kids as young as 5 who have never played, providing quality training in the fundamentals of the game, in a positive environment, and developing them into great players. And when the best of the best boys move onto a DA program such as PAC or the girls move on to an ecnl team like PF the club and their coaches can be proud of the part they played in that childs development. And yes few older teams at any of these types of clubs can hold a candle to ecnl teams as the best from each of these teams migrate there now or in the near future(how can they compare with the college exposure?) Penn Legacy and PA Classics are both in the same boat. So unless they merge and stop competing for the same small talent pool in Lancaster they will continue to go back and forth with which club has the better team at each age till about u-14/ u-15 when both will fall off. Of course if PAC gets a DA that changes everything but we will see. So put down your teal and whie pom poms and realize theres nothing special about PA Classics girls program either.

Anonymous said...

4:36

But if you don't know anything about the girls that are coming to the club then how can you say they are not being replaced with players of equal ability? I am not trying to pick a fight here but I do not even know why anybody (not just you)really should care about another team.

People worry and argue too much on here about who is the best team. Does it really matter? As long as you daughter is having fun, that should be all that matters.

Anonymous said...

You're right. Maybe calling the club garbage wash harsh. But that team has caught lightning in a bottle, and the rest of the club can't just ride those coat tails into a national premier league. It waters down the entire league for the benefit of one single age group.

Anonymous said...

I'm not saying the new girls you've brought on aren't talented. But don't diminish the abilities of the girls being "promoted" to the ecnl team by suggesting that it's that simple to replace them. And again, I'm not overly concerned with them. I was just responding.

Anonymous said...

5:50

Who are you to say what they can and cannot do? I will say it again, why do you concern yourself with this? Does it really have any effect on your own daughter? What if the team you are referring to actually goes and and does well in this national premier league?

5:53 PM

I understand what you are saying but I can say the same thing in the other direction. If you or anyone else has not seen any of the new players that are coming in, then we shouldn't speculate whether this team will take a step back or move forward.

Anonymous said...

PL as a club just doesn't have what it takes. Calling them garbage is harsh. One step above a rec club, is not.

Anonymous said...

I'm not trying to insult you or the girls, 6:06. You're taking this personally and it's not personal. The EDP NPL is club based, meaning clubs are accepted or denied based on the merits of the club as a whole, not the success, however great, of a single age group. And in the case of PL, it really is just one age group. I didn't decide that this should be the case, it's just how it is. ECNL is the same way. There are absolutely teams in this area that could destroy, 10 games out of 10, the worst u13 ECNL teams. But the ECNL isn't going to open the doors to them if the club doesn't do that at all or most age groups, and over a period of time.

Like I said. U13 PL has caught lightning in a bottle. They brought the right group of girls together at the right time. A league like R1 is the right fit because it's team based but still offers a pathway to a national championship. With that being said, I also hear from previous posts on this board that a number of girls are going to PF in the fall. So it's yet to be determined if you'll see the same level of success even at this age group going forward.

Believe me, I am not a cheer leader for Penn Legacy, but to say they are just a rec club that seems to have accidentally produced a top team this year is simply uninformed. PL’s 97 are a better team than anything Classics has ever produced. Still F2 at top tournaments like Jeff this spring right along with ecnl teams like Penn Fusion & FC Bucks. They won numerous state cups and have won or come in among the top of Reg 1 Leagues for years. The 98’s have also proved they can hold their own against anyone, having just won top division of Delco last weekend. Both have winning records against their NPL competitiion over the last 2 seasons, the 98’s are 2-0-1 against encl. teams as well. The 99’s should have followed with similar success but 5 of their top players left for FC Strikers or Penn Fusion encl.. 2 were also called into national team camp. While that team likely won’t recover, it is a testament of the quality training those kids were receiving. And the coach that put together and was responsible for the early success of both the 97’s and 01’s(also the founder of PA Classics) is still there. And if they are interested in producing consistently winning teams thats who should be running the girls program, IMO. But I don’t think the current club higharchy views success in terms of wins/losses. To them it seems to be about providing quality training, especially at a young age, and thats fine, but losing teams don’t attract top players. They seem proud of the girls who have “moved on”, no less than 12 former PL players will be on encl. squads come fall. But if every year their top players leave for ecnl, then yes they will not produce top teams at older ages but will become more of a feeder program to penn fusion. And honestly I think the DOC and board are fine with that. I doubt they have any intention of applying for NPL status. I bet PA Classics will. I don’t agree with the direction the club seems to be heading, but trust me my opinion matters little. Time will tell.

"Athletes are 60 times more likely to suffer an injury to the mouth when they are not wearing a mouthguard, according to the American Dental Association. Mouthguards help spread the force of a blow over a larger area, which dilutes the impact. Well-made mouthguards may also reduce the rate and severity of concussions, the ADA says."

Our coach & trainer have suggested our girls start wearing mouthpieces on a trial basis for summer select season. Curious if any others have been doing this? I know girls basketball does & obviously its required in football. Thoughts?

Only 2 players left from state cup njx that did not make the ecnl team. So it doesn't take a genius to figure out who was the actual A team and where they will be training. MF got what they wanted, but did all of the parents get what they wanted???

Old NJX Celtic finished as a elite team, RIP.
New MF ECNL Team will be a mess now at U14 with parents/players from both Pre-ECNL Team from up north and NPL team from south trying to mesh. Just reading posts from parents from both teams over the last year it's clear there is no way all those unrealistic expectations can be met. That coach now has a tiger by the tail.

ROSTER RULES.

Any player registered with and issued a passcard for a participating club, who is a member of the designated
age group or younger, is eligible to be placed on the tournament roster. No players may be added to a
tournament roster other than pursuant to these rules unless an emergency situation arises and permission is
obtained in writing from the Competition Director.


Roster Changes for NPL Finals:
For teams that qualify for the NPL Finals, players may be dropped or
added to the NPL Finals roster without limitation up to the maximum roster size, as long as any new
players to be added were registered with the member club during the NPL season.

If the club has had tryouts since the end of their NPL season, they may add up to three new players from tryouts that have committed to and are registered with the club for the next registration year.

Any other roster emergency requests shall be determined by the Competition Director on a case-by-case basis.

Roster freeze for NPL Finals: 5 p.m. ET, fourteen (14) days prior to the team’s first NPL Finals game.
Thereafter, the team’s roster shall be frozen.

Rostering over 18 players at these young ages is criminal. This is not a matter of opinion. Spare us all the crap about parental choices. There are parents who choose to mistreat their children in many different ways and this is just another way. There is no level of training or club cred that can justify 7 players a week not even dressing for their team's matches. This isn't professional soccer or college soccer. Players 16 through 25 on the ECNL team sit behind top NPL players on numerous occasions. Many are on the team because the club knows their parents will accept any terms, no matter how offensive to the player, just to say their child plays, I'm sorry, is on a PDA or MF. Others are on the NPL because the same club knows their parents wouldn't subject their children to the absurd notion of not dressing, so in order to keep them, they play big minutes at the NPL level or come up and play over the ECNL practice players when asked to. Conversely many of the ECNL practice players are periodically sent to play in NPL matches in order to get some game action. Where exactly does this leave the players on the back end of the NPL rosters? Soccer is a game, especially for kids this age, and games are meant to be played in, not watched, at 13 years old. The debate about good training is also ridiculous. Training for what? This isn't the military. Training to sit on some college bench some day and be used to it? I won't engage in any back and forth with anyone on this forum and will simply laugh off any attempted insults hurled my way. I am impervious to the "you must be bitter" or "where does your daughter play?" rebuttals so you can save your breath. The fact is, for the clubs that do this, it comes down to money, period. Either you are deemed good enough to play as one of eighteen or you are not. Some are being told they are not, but are good enough to pay for smelling the same turf at practice. Also keep in mind, that the parents of the players who do play are happy with this arrangement as it helps defray the costs for them. How about a sliding pay scale that cuts those who rarely dress for games a significant discount? Keep waiting. "Well my daughter is happy, so there!" So say kids whose parents live in cults.

6:93, my daughter is one of the ones who plays, but I couldn't agree with you more. At this age no one should ever miss dressing for a game. Maybe your minutes are less because they should be earned, but ALL team members should be dressed and available on game day. Unfortunately the clubs have gone down this slippery slope and will not likely turn back any time soon unless the parents demand it...and I am not seeing that.

They are trying to keep that quiet and claim no parents would voluntarily leave their ECNL Club, but don't beleive them.

Anonymous said...

And the sliding pay scale is already in force, only in reverse.
The bubble players get no discount while the extra dues collected from those bubble players 18+ is used to give discounts or full scholarships to recruit new studs from outside the club for the ECNL teams.

You would think Mr NJ/DOC/Head Coach of NJ's main University would not take away the fun out of youth soccer. Apparently he doesn't care. He is such a major figure in the ECNL and soccer landscape and he doesn't see the problem with this. A real shame. This all started with him and pda. He should be ashamed of himself. You can still find 18 great players to suit up. You do not need to have 20 something players on a team and not getting game touches. An outright shame. Glad WC doesn't do this.

2 teams, 50 kids. Here's a thought add 4 kids and field 3 teams of 18. Everybody dresses, but that adds another coach/trainer to the formula, less for the others to divy up. Inflated rosters are a point of discussion for youth soccer parents. Just because its offered and there's parents who agree to it doesn't mean its good for kids at this age. Hey when your daughter looks back at her time as a youth soccer player she can reminisce about all the times she sat in the bleachers watching her teammates play in big games and say "I trained with those girls".

2:15 I think the Big Ten and their coaches are already aware of the violation and it's impact on recruiting. It's definitely an obvious recruiting advantage for Rutgers in the Big Ten Conference. I don't think you will see any more South Jersey or out of state residents who are high school studdents playing for Storm or other PDA Teams at U14 or above coached and/or trained by Rutgers Coaching Staff this fall.
3:33 so if Rutgers is not a "Power" in NCAA Womens Soccer Nationally they don't have to abide by NCAA recruiting regulations? That's a new low in ignorance even for you!
Not that it should matter, but wasn't Rutgers University a participant in the Womens NCAA Soccer Tournament this past fall?
And a contender all seaason in the Big Ten Conference?

NJ Wildcats clinched the EDP NPL South division with a +18 GD.

Now they wait to see who stands in the way of Indiana.


TSF has 9 points in 3 games with a +14 GD
NJCSA Manalapan has 7 points in 3 games with a +6
Alleycats have 3 points in 2 games with a +3.

TSF can clinch with a win vs Alleycats and NJCSA.

If Alleycats beat TSF and TSF beats NJCSA they win
based on head 2 head victory.

If NJCSA beats TSF they will need Alleycats to lose a game in order to clinch division.

Does anyone know why PDA North doesn't have to play Matchfit this spring? I can understand point wise in the standings it doesn't make a difference but if the rest of the teams in the division have to play 22 games, it should be the same wear and tear on their girls also. Is this a deal PDA has with the NPL Northeast so they can have the proper rest in preparation for the playoffs?

Anonymous said...

7:56 It also benefits their PDA club when they collude to break the rules and that affects all of us.
If they don't want to hear it then stop doing it.

Anonymous said...

7:56 Maybe it IS a PDA parent. Maybe the parent wants the South Jersey girls off the ECNL Team so his daughter can have the roster spot or starting spot.
If Rutgers/PDA gets into compliance with the NCAA Rules it will open a bunch of spots for PDA players from North Jersey.
Have any of the South Jersey or out of state girls been told they will not be able to play for the PDA ECNL Teams next year? That will be a sure sign they have been pulled up or warned by the NCAA infractions.
Let's face it they are not going to get in compliance after all these years of breaking the rules becuase it's the right thing to do.

I'll bite. I don't know enough about a 50 mile rule or who can or can't coach certain players, but I do know that rostering over 18 kids and having kids not dress for games is a bad idea. I don't care if its PDA, MF, or whoever. No disrespect to the 50 mile guys who feel PDA is cheating, but I don't want my issue to be blurred with other issues. I believe strongly that having kids sit in the stands on game day is wrong on several fronts. It can't be good for a players confidence level and it treads on the main reason kids are on a team, to play. This isn't the EPL. Can someone come on here and explain why its such a wonderful idea and why its better than being a viable player on a different team without being a dismissive, arrogant jackass. If its not a money grab and a way to keep good players away from other clubs then what is it? An ego trip for a parent? Mr. Nut, any thoughts.

Anonymous said...

11:02 this is a sign that our u13 kids are getting older. This was year 1, u14 will be year 2. You are missing the point - they do not want kids that will be sad watching games from the stands or parents that will be bitter.

They want kids that will get mad that they are watching and will do something about it at the next practice. You can't teach this -either the kid has it or they don't. Go ahead call me what you want. The truth is every parent thinks their kid will be part of a rotation - the question is what do THEY do if they are not? If they pack it in - These clubs never wanted them to begin with and if they knew it up front would not have selected the kid.

You have to be all in for this and that's what they are looking for. What's arrogant and disrespectful is calling parents that have kids that respond to this bad parents instead of going to another team where they would play more. You do best for your kid and leave the others alone.

Anonymous said...

You're making my point. You've bought into a bad concept and if seeing a kid get mad and pushing harder at practice is enough justification for you to have them sit out games, you are lost, sorry. Top players should be self motivated and use playing time on a team as incentive. That's been accomplished with 18 players forever. You don't need to be sitting in the stands for this to happen. What you are calling "all in" others call drinking the koolaid. I'm not saying this to be disrespectful but I would wager any amount that you never played soccer at a competitive level.

There is a very good reason for the rules that are in place.
College coaches are not allowed to intereact by phone(until junior year) or in person(until senior year) with players who are in high school, in addition they are not allowed to train or coach them at all during their high school years if they live more than 50 miles from the college where they coach. Clearly noT abiding by these NCAA Rules puts both the college coaches, their schools program and the club at a recruiting advantage in many ways.

There are so many ways to handle an 18 player roster and create an environment for other kids who are on the second team to compete.

You do not have to put 22-26 players on a roster and demand player number 19-26 to compete for a game day spot.

19-26 could easily be the nucleus for a avery strong second team that could play every day and compete against the first team in scrimmages. it is the best way to create competition amongst the players and move players up and down periodically depending on the merit of the child's play.

This recent phenomenon of bloated roasters has its genesis in revenue creation.

It also serves another important purpose that is frequently overlooked.

A good player that accepts her role as a reserve because of the brand of the club helps to keep that player from another club thereby weakening another clubs position in building a team.

Parents must always remember that an evaluation by one coach for a majority of good players is nothing more than an opinion and a good solid player that is reserve for one team may flourish under another system or coach.

The collection of players by one club, with a strong brand to hold the family, assures that their competitor may not acquire that player.

Although money is the driving force for these expanded rosters (it is certainly not for development reason) the secondary affect is keeping a good player from their competitor.


Some parents buy into this system knowing full well that this may exist

Some parents stay because their child has developed irelationships through out the years

And some parents buy into the bloated roster philosophy thinking that the exposure of sitting for a certain club has more benefits than playing for another club.


As this is my second time around, I feel i have enough experience , to navigate through the BS and make a decent decision for my youngest.


To those that buy into the bloated roster philosophy for competition purposes, you have to ask yourself Why doesn't the boys academy system follow the same model?

Answer: Because there is no money to be made -Only money to be lost, since the club pays for the players and therefore there is no incentive to do so.

The competition argument all of a sudden goes right out the window.

Soocer Nut, I like your post. But MF and PDA do have 2nd teams (and in the case of PDA 3rd team) that are considered to be the best Non-ECNL teams in NJ. So they not only have talented players sitting on their ECNL teams, they have talented players playing on their other teams. And all have a chance to move up or down each year.

Anonymous said...

3:30 WOW - MF and PDA have to very good teams playing in ECNL and probably #1 & #2 in NJ as far as Non-ECNL teams, throw in a very strong South team for PDA and 2 up and coming teams for both clubs in black North and Shore.

You can see why NJ gets mad outside of a few teams like STA, NJ Wildcats & NJ Crush there is a big drop off.

SO you can see teams like STA, NJ Wildcats & NJ Crush talking bad about roster size or throwing in how far you have to live from the club to play for the club as scare tactics to try and recruit from their player pool. No other reason to post any of that stuff it that's not the case.

Anonymous said...

Do you really believe that "ALL" will have a chance to move up.

For most, by u13 ,The pecking order for a particular team has already been well established by the coach.

As this is a pivotal year for most u13 teams, your daughter has already been looked at and evaluated, so they should have a pretty good idea where they stand with the club.

In days past the bottom 4 or 5 on the top team are interchangeable with the top 3 of the second team at a high level club. Usually these are the players that are interchangeable depending on the coaches need.

Playing on the second team for one of these clubs is an excellent way to move forward as long as the coaching is excellent.

But you should be playing on the second team and playing often!


Ideally the numbers on the second team should be no more than 16 but too often you'll find bloated rosters on the second team as well.

Maybe you should have your coffee first, then post.

I dont see what you folks are quibbling over

Players/parents make the choice to play where they will, then reassess, if necessary, after the season (if they dont take the not so honorable way out and leave midseason)

The cool thing is that going into each September the kids can be optimistic about either continuing in a club they feel is right for them or getting a fresh start with a new group.

Its up to the parents to keep the optimism going DURING the season (read: keep your child out of the drama), no matter what is occurring and what you feel is not being done right for your child.

I think 8/22 is too early for a soccer tournament, sorry. Most girls are still enjoying the last days of summer before returning and beginning the long and grueling training protocols. Let them enjoy their youth, plenty of time for soccer, they are young only once!

Anonymous said...

Why do people like you always post that? "let them enjoy" What makes you think they are not? Because we are on here BSing? This board has nothing to do with the kids. This board is for a bunch of yahoos like me to BS about stuff you can't talk to your kid about.

Three of the majors have a deadline in July
Today is June 4th and U13 is still in progress for some teams
playing in Regionals/Nationals. So some girls don't get to have the summer off
and I guess don't get to enjoy their youth.

Teams like
PDA ECNL
MF ECNL
EM ECNL
PDA NPL North
PDA NPL South
MF NPL South
PF NPL
NEFC
OAKWOOD
NJ Wildcats
STA

all of these teams are still playing and might be playing well into July.
Some of them already have applied to these tournaments. So what's wrong with posting who the participants are and giving props to an event that's not about the money. Nothing to hide - you see who'splaying and you either also play or you don't.


2015 WAGS Tournament
Application Deadline:
July 1, 2015

2015 Spirit United Kickoff Classic
Registration Deadline:
July 7, 2015

2015 FC Stars Cup
Application Deadline:
July 27th, 2015

That NJ Stallions team leaving EDP NPL is a NY team branded stallions. Not a very good team at all.

Anonymous said...

And the NJ stallions team at u17 is #1 in the country. Remember NPL is club based

Anonymous said...

Nj stallions u17 has has been with 5 different clubs.
Look at GS accross all age groups, not one team ranked number one is even close to being number one.
By the way, the same person posting this said every girl on the team got full ride d1 scholarships, including the ivy leagues.
Welcome to America coach, people see right thru you and ecnl will never allow you in. Keep it up.

Does anyone know if it is a definite they will be moving to calendar year next fall.

Anonymous said...

1:19 Why would you ask? Didn't your kid go through the tryout process? I am sure that information would have been made available to you already.

PS. the birth year move would be for DA only and NPLs most likely.

Anonymous said...

Yes we went through tryouts and have been through sessions prior deciding but PDA and Matchfit did not mention any of this. She is only playing NPL.

Anonymous said...

I don't think we will see it until the USSF names ECNL or creates an official DA

Anonymous said...

I can't say for sure, but I asked and was confirmed by a very senior Pda coach. He says its happening, I still can't believe they would do this.

1- PDA Storm
2- MF ECNL
3- MF NPL
4- PDA Dragons
5- STA
6- PDA Ajax
7- PDA Shore Fusion
8- MF Black
9- TSF
10- Wildcats

Hey didnt JPS just beat PDA Shore? JPS should be ahead of them

Anonymous said...

That is fairly accurate list 936, no qualms here.

Anonymous said...

I't's been slow -so I will play along.

1st remove PDA Storm and MF ECNL, you can't compare DA type teams to regular teams. Apples to Apples please.

From what I read on this board and we all know this board is the bible. MF NPL will be no more - so they can't be number 1. My crack at the top 10.

1. PDA Dragons - (beat STA and NJ Wildcats head 2 head).
2. NJ Wildcats - (NJ NCS Champs and beat STA head 2 head twice)
3. STA - (NYCSL NPL Champs).
4. PDA Ajax (still good enough to get F1 looks at majors)
5. NJ Crush

Next 5 take your pick no order

MF Black
TSF
PDA Shore
Jersey Shore Boca
NJCSA Elite
NJ Rush
Medford
JPS
SJEB

Germany will win it all!!!!

Can't make a list that looks ahead any more. Most teams will be different this fall. List should be top 10 after the spring. No new top 10 list could be accurate because no one on this blog knows all of the player movement. Happens every year.

Anonymous said...

My list based on the Spring season. I even have my daughters team lower than others have put them. I think it represents the season these teams have had. I guaranty that the list after this fall will look a lot different and some of the teams mentioned above not on my list could be there.

1- PDA Storm
2- MF ECNL
3- MF NPL
4- PDA Dragons
5- STA
6- PDA Ajax
7- Wildcast
8 TSF
9. Crush
10. NJCSA

Anonymous said...

5:05 what do you think about the comments based about how Germany is loaded with young talents and we have ONE college player that cracked our roster.

Germans have 10 girls 23 or younger on roster and maybe the best F in the world (Sasic)

We have Brian and Johnston - for a country so big that is so sad.

Anonymous said...

6:45 I agree. US needs to make those adjusts seeking younger talent now. Germany has made the right moves.

Who won friday NPL North game between TSF and NJCSA?

6:15 has the most accurate list so far for now. Agreed, things will change a bit next Fall.

Would that Ivory Coast team from Africa make our top 10 list?

TSF-NJCSA NPL 2-2 Draw

Anonymous said...

Did anyone attend the Region 1 ODP tournament this weekend? Was curious on the level of play you saw and is it still worth doing in NJ if your not with PDA or MF?

Anonymous said...

Region 1 was good, aside from the grass being ridiculously high for a tournament. NJ should be embarrassed hosting an event in those conditions. No offense NJ, I'm not being snarky, to drive and get hotels to play on uncut fields was kind of a drag. I don't think anyone will disagree.

Anonymous said...

Younger = better, 7:27?

Relax. This veteran group deserves to compete for this title. Then you will see a little more youthful infusion.



Press is 26, O'Hara is 26, Morgan is 25, LeRoux is 25, Klingenberg is 26, Engen is 27, Heath is 27, Holiday is 27

Not exactly old maids, in addition to the 2 you mentioned

Solo decision is another story. That reeked.

Anonymous said...

This US team is old and slow, and that will be painfully obvious on the turf. Hoping for the best, but worried.

New York Cup Final on Saturday, EM Hotshotz vs. NYSC, any predictions??

Anonymous said...

10:45 I'm okay with a slow pace of play. i feel sometimes we force kids to play this frantic super fast high pressure game to speed up development and the thinking required to play. Sometimes I wish they would just slow it down and play the game.

I get the lets take the big/strong, fast kid that will run to a wall mentality and teach them how to play. I just think sometimes we like to have this ceiling in place for what ever the reason.

Good luck girls, bring home a World Cup - because we all know this is the one that matters not the Olympics.

My daughter did regional tourney also. She enjoyed it but said the fields were poor and that the competition was uneven.
