12:53 did you invent something or cure cancer, holy crap what an ego.
Soccer = Life.
GDA Showcase schedules are out, best of luck to all the clubs!
Cmon Mr. GDA it's not good luck to the club's it's good luck to the kids for recruiting right? Isn't that why they are there? Just ask you
No, I represent the corporate soccer club trust and loan, my only interest is the perpetuation of profits.
I want a CSA DA parent form the 01/02 team to chime in here. How does the team allow PF drop 8 goals on you????
Not from either team, but isn't CSA suffering from injuries to big players on that team?
Yes, and my dog ate my homework, again....
Why cant they bring in girls from other CSA teams. They have a ton!
In CSA's defense, PF has been tough to beat with most teams.
Dude Cedar Stars sucks! It’s PDA leftovers and girls that couldn’t get on PDA. They are equivalent to a Copa NPL team and always will be. NO ONE is getting recruited off of that train wreck.
I agree, PF is probably best team in Region1, but still 8 goals, is hard to defend, pardon the pun, ugh.
OTOH CSA U14 exceeds expectations every week. Other teams seem to be in the Meh category, though.
Go cedar star !! Is she recruited yet??? Lol
It's the best team in the conference against the one with the worst record. What did you expect? PF has had a few 1 or 2 goal games with middle and top of the conference teams. They have been easily winning the games against the much lower ranked teams. I just don't get the posts. This was an expected score I would think.
Seems like more posters dislike CSA than they do PF.
Correction, I hate PF more, just for the record...carry on!
Curious...what is the main point for the gda for your daughter?
10:06, isn't it obvious, its to mock people like you, and your stupid questions, duh.
Disney only two NJ teams at U16? Looking at U17 few more up to 4? wow. Is it true coaches are not going? So CASL, Newss, and edp local events seem to be drawing Northeast teams. Disney is far and expensive, plus sacred holiday for all. usually family time. If playing at Newss that is different because Saturday Sunday.
If you're not top bracket, don't bother going
We’ve been to Disney twice, its too expensive and way overrated, not that many coaches last year, CASL is better bet, NEWSS is a waste of gas, and EDP tourneys are 3-rate now.
PF's crushing of VDA and CSA is not impressive. If they can pull out wins in Florida that will be impressive.
CSA is not impressive. Really? Not impressive? Lol they suck!! Worst team . Players and coaches are the worst around ." not impressive " lol
There's obviously a clear distinction between the top teams and the lower teams. CSA not a whole lot worse than the other bottom tier.Give the program a chance...
Its possible that in a few years CSA will be more competitive, but by then, my kid will be in college, sadly we live in an instant gratification society. Clubs like PF, PDA and NYCFC will always draw the best talent, but its their job to continue to be successful, which as we all know is neither simple, nor easy.
Sorry to say, GDA came too late for most on these blogs...joining the DA teams now is a waste of time unless your daughter is already on the NT radar.Not everyone can drive to PF or PDA and join clubs that are top notch and will get the attention.Big pic is the female side of soccer does not provide much for the highest percentage of oour girls!Hell, you can be a boy and shoot to have Iceland and Senegal in the WC but not the US!!!Money grab is all this is....
But no more money than the other leagues and clubs. Same or lower fees, similar or less travel. Just a different name.
How about if your kid has interest from colleges and she can't tell coaches whether she's on the roster for the game they want to observe?Have heard this more than once from different clubs...
Then you picked the wrong insurance company, I mean soccer club. PDA has 24 girls on the 01/02 roster, but NYCFC has 17, sometimes you have to do some homework. P.S. Stop bashing GDA, or I will banish from this blog, forever.
Disney, CASL, EDP and Newss. I agree Disney is over rated and CASL is better. It really depends on financial status and location of schools your girl may go to. If they are interested in Florida schools not bad option for Disney. Cost is ridiculous, including the entrance fee. At CASL you will get the college coaches, and many East coast schools because of location not being too far like Disney is. Also mid-west to CASL, again due to distance and cost for the recruiting process. EDP events are definitely 2nd tier, not 3rd tier. You still see some good teams, and great teams here and there. But since no ECNL or DA of course, it has become a low 2nd tier. BUT, still local, affordable and decent soccer, like league play. And fields typically pretty good at Tuckahoe. What a difference from 1-3 years ago when the top teams were at EDP tournaments. Newss is fine, I see ecnl teams and it is local for most of us, not too expensive, no flight. And northeast coaches all come to newss, that is a fact!
7:49 I agree, these other programs will get better in time. about the ones you named, it's easy when as you say they draw top talent. it's the kids don't let anyone fool you. the top talent would flourish anywhere. and all you need is a little success and kids/parents will appear.
8:40 sounds like a bubble player. that can be tough. may not see time unless score warrants or weaker competition. if you want more playing time, may need to move to different club where she may be the big fish in a small pond.
12:01 fields were terrible. grass is nice, but it was too high to play good soccer. was like being in chicago with the slow fields.
@12:16, the 2nd day they should cut them. agreed. I believe they cut on Friday. Then should cut again after games on Saturday or something. Because it is turf and well managed it grows quickly. I just think about the torn ligaments due to over use on the artificial turf.
12:07Not a bubble player, she plays but coach has this "thing" with not publishing who will play more than 1 day ahead...control thing
Best of luck to the players heading to Orlando this week for the showcase.
12:48 so if she plays and is not a bubble player then should be playing a lot of minutes and games so not sure why the complaining.
Dude, you have your dates mixed-up, the Florida showcase is 12/6-12/10, in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. That is about 3 hours from Orlando. Please check with your coach, but try not to hurt his feelings...
12:48 is complaining because his kid plays for NYSC, and if I were him I would be in tears already....
5:01 Disney is this week, in Orlando.
5:01 there are other teams than DA....Disney is this weekend for other girls who are not as good as your daughter!Happy thxgiving, I bet you're a joy at your gathering...if you were invited..
You guys, so easy to take the bait, relax, no harm meant. It's just competitive razing, similar to siblings in a way! All the best to our ECNL, NPL, and USYS friends this Thanksgiving. Here is a special prize for you all 🥉
Nice try...you're just a clueless pompous ass
Speaking of ass, you’re wife sure has a nice one!
Now now children, settle down"your" not "you're":)Happy turkey day!
Only 3 out of 10 Americans would know that, are you my old English teacher??? You should be about 90 by now, how is the arthritis treating you?
haha. not the op.sad but true. although my daughter knows as well. good parenting and excellent teachers.you're is a contraction for you are (you're right) and your denotes possession always followed by a noun. your name; your wife; your car.that must be a real challenge; reading the SAT essay responses from kids that communicate in either smiley faces or 140 characters +/-. terrible.
Anyone have any creative recruiting advice, such as when the coaches are at your games. Was thinking of slipping them a Benjamin with my kids name, any other great suggestions????
Anyone have any insight into NY Surf Club on the girls side?Thx
Yes, I have extensive insight into NY Surf, and from my professional experience, they suck ass, a lot.
@2:26ah, ok.Whats bad about them? anything good? or best to go to other clubs in the area?thx
Just another club, nothing special, they are trying to glean success from the mothership in SD. I know the guy who owns the club, and while he is not a bad guy, the people around him are morons.
