Didn't they already announce their roster? I'm sure each team knows what league they are playing in already.
12:37ISA or Massapequa has a claim in NY
This is why you'll have some clever posters taking shots at the other team while misleading readers to think it's some other team's parents.With PDA it's simple STORM is ECNL there is no debate. If they stink, they will just turnover the roster. Dragons, Ajax and Shore are just reserve teams trying to develop players for STORM if they can. While with MF it looks like you have MF Black and NJX both wanting to be the ECNL team thinking that most of the players from the other team won't travel the distance to practice. If MF was smart they would have 1 practice up North and 1 down South this way everyone travels once a week and they can truly combine the top 20 or 24 players to form one very very good team.
1:01 so if I was to say NYSC, Athletico and ISA or Massapequa that would paint a true picture. Sounds like I have a new research project. Just don't have the time today.
Rosters are interchangeable for mf. Promises to everyone that they think counts. Unfortunately the ones that count are the ones who are paying.
IF MF has ECNL team based out of Hazlet watch some of the MF Black players head to Storm. If MF has ECNL team up north watch NJX players head to StormHmmmm what will MF do
I agree 1:09. But that doesn't mean parent should get upset.If my kid was playing on the 2nd team of one of these clubs - it wouldn't matter what was promised to me or her. She's on the 2nd team for a reason - she needs to work on some stuff to make the A team in the opinion of the guys/gals that are selecting these teams. It's simple you are always going to be told what you want to hear to stay (1) To make another club team strong (2) to keep you from another club.It is up to us as parents or the agents for our kids to make the right choices for our kids. We all want them to develop but we have to keep them happy and wanting to play the game either with the top clubs are with the lower clubs as long as they are playing and developing while they still love the sport that's all that counts regardless of how much money we spend for them to play. No Strings.
12:27PDA Shore Fusion is the U13 team for 2014-15 seasonI do not know what league they will be in
1:34 I disagree with what you think is going to happen.Using Google MapsHolmdel to Zarepath = 39 minutesHolmdel to Denville = 1 hourAre you telling me 21 minutes is going to make a difference? It wouldn't for me.
It would make a difference for me and I know some others that feel the same
.Only two kids are from holmdel. The rest from monmouth ocean and middlesex county
1:50 Simple question if your daughter didn't play on an Academy team and you had no options around the corner. The only thing you can do Is drive 1 hour so she can play with an Academy team if she is that level a player, you are telling me you wouldn't? You would stay where you are? I respect that if you tell me you wouldn't drive the distance. Question, why bring others into the mix - the question was would you. What are you trying to do strong arm the club - you think they pay attention to these boards and do you really think they would make a change because they read something on a blog. But then again you never know and you need to do what's right for your kid.PS. Academy = ECNL or NPL club.
It's called Carpooling. PDA players do it from all over the State. The ECNL has specific rules about the training environment and location. Don't really understand why people do not get it.
I think people do get it, they just don't want to see any good players leave their team. But no one ever says, "your daughter is so good, I don't want her to leave our team because I want my daughter to continue to play with good players". Instead, they say "who would ever drive an hour to get soccer training. Those people are nuts."
I think matchfit is in for a rude awakening in many respects..dont be surprised if kids leave after their u13 pre ecnl results
I think matchfit black is finishing the Year Strongjust had three significant wins in a row.I wish they got another chance to play The Breakers,I think results would be much closer at this point in time. Good luck to your team this weekend make Jersey proud.
You are assuming NJX/mf live in towns the training takes place in. What if mf kid is 30 minutes north of denville? What if NJX kid is 30 minutes south of hazlet? What parent is driving 1:30 minutes for soccer training? U14 MF team will look nothing like the u13 pre- ECNL team. Just sayin like it is.
The good team MFB has beaten recently is EM. If you consider that a nice end of the season, then you do not know this age group or the npl league they are playing in very well. Just Sayin' NPL u13 league is weak and they played in a weak EDP and Delco bracket. Keep drinking the Kool Aid folks.
5:06So you are saying MF should risk their ECNL spot for the kid that lives 30 mins from Denville. Come on, really? MF has been doing this for years. You either want to be apart of MF or not? The rules are highly stated that all ECNL teams train at the same location. Maybe MF will move the whole program up to Denville because of this 1 age group. However, if ECNL found out they weren't following the policy, I would think they would be in a jam. MF is already not wanted in the ECNL.
5:36.Did your Mom drop you on your head when you were young, if not, too bad, if so, she should of done it more often.
Can someone link the ECNL rule regarding training in same location? I've only been able to find the same location requirement for games.
I don't get this the MF debate. The Jefferson Lady falcons were a town team that went under the MF Umbrella. The girls have a chance to accept playing for the ECNL team where ever they play or they can stay and play NPL. Same goes for NJX they can accept to play for MF ECNL where ever it may be (it's looking like NJX with DOC the Coach on GS) or they can play NPL. It's simple choices. You walk or you drive. I don't get this entire blog thing - why bring people on the outside in - MF isn't doing anything wrong. There are plenty of parents that made the decision to drive a long distance for their kid are they on here saying they should be parents of the year. Lets get one thing straight ECNL spot was given to MF not Jefferson Lady Falcons or NJX Celtic.
1) Marketing and Branding: Do all ECNL teams wear the same uniform and use the same logo? 2) Training Facility: Do all ECNL teams train at the same facility, or jointly train at multiple facilities? 3) Joint Training: Does each ECNL team train together with another age group at least one time per week? 4) Training Flexibility: Can ECNL players from one age group easily train with ECNL teams at different age groups? 5) Staff Overlap: Is there overlap of staff members on the ECNL teams? In other words, do staff members in one ECNL age group also coach, in some role, ECNL teams at a different age group? 6) Training Plan: Are all teams within the ECNL program trained using the same curriculum and periodization plan, overseen by the same Director of Coaching or ECNL Director? 7) Training Oversight: Is the Director of Coaching or ECNL Director present at the majority of trainings for all ECNL teams? 8) Training Attendance: Are all ECNL players, with the exception of Discovery Players, expected to attend all trainings each week, and are players from greater distances expected to attend at least two trainings per week? 9) Staff Reporting Structure: Do the staff for all ECNL teams report to the same Director of Coaching or ECNL Director, and not report to a director in any other youth club? 10) Registration Fees. Are all registration fees paid by an ECNL player to play youth soccer paid to the ECNL club? In other words, except for Discovery Players, do ECNL players pay any registration fee to a non-ECNL club? 11) Club Development: Do all ECNL teams participate in some type of periodic joint off-field “club-building” activities or presentations to develop a unified club atmosphere, culture, and morale?
The 11 factors used to evaluate whether a club meets the requirements of ECNL club programming and structure include: As you can see a number of them all hint at one location.#2, #3, #4, #7, #8
It looks like u13 will train in Hazlet with rest of MF Ecnl teams? Verify anyone?
NOPE sessions are being held in Denville.
But DOC is training the NJX team. Hmmmm,,,
But is he?????? HmmmmmNJX you can hope and hope, not going to happen
Wait so MF started their 2014/2015 season already, While the 2013/2014 games are still being played?
Actually the 2014/2015 season for MF U13 ECNL did start as the acceptance letters for the pre ECNL team were received about 2 weeks ago. The letters indicated that the U13 practices would be held in Denville. You didn't get yours yet?
145: you are quoting drive times with NO OTHER cars on the road. 39 min turns into 1 1/2 hours. An hour turns into 2 hours. With traffic
Daddy coach in Denville DOC in Hazlet. This is know thruout MF. Yes yes yes
#2 For people with poor reading comprehesion skills, does not say you have to train at a single facility. MFA will continue to train at multiple facilities as they do now.
Daddy coach in DenvilleDaddy coach in OrangeburgDaddy coach in PDADaddy coach in GFADaddy coach in RageAll Daddy coaches can coach.
just curious, why so many daddy coaches at this age.wanna bet that their daughters are either CenterMids or CenterDefenders.Coincidence. Of course not.,its called preferential treatment. And No they are not the best at their position on these teams. but daddys always put there daughters in the center of the action.Taking away time from girls who deserve to be in those positions.
Does daddies precious belong on the team? How much does precious play. Thats why daddy is coaching. Just sayn
No daddy coach at PDA anymore.Another reason to go to PDA.
why is storm in U13 on GS?
8:12 Why would i get 1 - my kid doesn't play for MF didn't even tryout for them. What's your point? Trying to make me feel small? For what?
So once you got your acceptance letter you started bringing your kid to training (new players) while they are still playing NE Girls NPL games. WOW
The point is that every single team being talked about on this blog has completed their tryouts and made offers/acceptances for their 2014/2015 teams. These notifications included (at least MF's) what team was made and where the team would practice. Do u not know where your daughter's team will be practicing during the 2014/2015 season? Point is that the u13 pre ECNL MF team is out of Denville-in writing. Other point is why so interested in where MF practices if u have no interest in MF?
No daddy coach at GFA
daddy trainer, same thing and it shows big time on the pitch.
No daddy at NJX just the DOC next season. Who do you want to train your daughter MF parents?
Thanks 1:42, any truth to PDA Shore getting players from RAGE and SJEB?
really 8:36? That kid isn't the best player on the team and shouldn't be on the field more than anyone?
7:19 If you believe just because it is in writing from MF you better buckle up because you are in for a long ride. That doesn't mean anything and having been through it and listening to the promises over and over. They could put on a billboard and would still do something completely different.
Rage players not going to PDA Shore, they are going PDA Ajax from what I hear.
Rage only had 2-3 good players. Are they all going to Ajax?
10:08 Why do you have to put 11 and 12 year old girls down? Does that make you feel better about yourself? It would have been much more effective if you asked "Rage had 2 or 3 girls that are at a higher level, are they the ones who went to Ajax?". Instead of making the 15 other girls sound useless, which they are certainly not. Shame on you.
one of the parents at ODP on wed night told me 1 Rage and 2 SJEB players went to PDA Shore
Fellow posters-When do we officially switch to the u13 blog for this site? August 1? I forgot how we did it last year going from u11 to u12.
Hi - I'm new to NJ soccer and trying to understand the landscape. It seems incredibly complicated. Starting with PDA - would someone please explain to me the difference between Storm, Ajax, Dragons and PDA Shore? Do they play out of different locations? Is storm the pre ecnl team? My duaghter isn't looking to join any of them. I'm just confused.
Rage had more than 2-3 good players, or they would not have beaten your daughter's team all the time. Some left already. It takes more than 2 good players on a team to compete at the higher level. That number may work on a town team but not in a competitive league. As some have said in previous comments, 6-7 core girls are leaving and probably have already, not coming back in fall. Big impact. If only 2-3 left maybe not quite of an impact but 6 or more, big,big problem.
"Other point is why so interested in where MF practices if u have no interest in MF?"I have no interest in MF, I posted the results for all the pre-ecnl teams which included MF black, but there were some other posts that made me look at NJX and I saw the DOC coaching NJX. So as an outsider with no knowledge it was interesting to me, isn't that what this board is about? I didn't say anything bad about a single person. Just said 21 minutes isn't far. Is what's I'm saying not for this board? am I out of line? To me it's simple you have two Town Teams Jefferson Lady Falcons and NJX Celtic both merged with MF, from reading this board it sounds like parents from both want their kid's team to be the ECNL team so they don't have to drive. This is as the World Turns according to MF. Sorry if I'm out of line.
To 11:06 3 locationsStorm and Dragon are in North JerseyAjax is South JerseyShore is East (shore area)
Only one SJEB player left on her own, and went to Ajax. Anyone else who may be going to PDA Shore I'm not aware of, but they would have been from the girls cut after tryouts.
9:43Different poster here. she should be playing ,just not all over the field with no discipline. she also shouldnt take every throw in and free kick.That's what makes it a joke.If team is going to compete at this level than you need a team of similar quality players that share in the responsibilities. Otherwise you have no shot at competing at the highest levels.Daddy coaches and trainers promote this type of play. It simply would not happen on another top level team.She would be part of something greater than any one player.My issue is not with the player, it is with Daddy coaches and trainers that have a huge influence over teams. How many equal quality players can you get to stay on that team if its always designed to be a supporting cast.
To 11:31Thank you. That is short and helpful.
11:50 I agree a top team has 18 starting XI players that they dress every game and another 6 to push those 18 from game to game. When you a team like that every thing is accelerated and they push and motivate each other. This is what I would imagine would happen, I'm not a pro. Yes it would stink if my kid was #24 every week. She would have solid training and be pushed every time, would I want her to start YES or Dress YES but if she doesn't than she still has to do some work to catch the other girls to follow her dream for as long as it's her dream. Is this worth all the money we are being asked to pay? I don't know.But as long as she is improving it's worth it, the question is would she improve the same way on a team that isn't at the same level but the playing time is there and she's a star? I don't know. But only time will tell.
To answer your question of whether a player would improve if she was "big fish in small pond"I think her growth would be limited and she would be in danger of developing lots of bad habits.she would not be pushed in practice and the refinement of the players technique would suffer.I also think that trusting other equally strong players goes a long way on a top team. You don't think that you have to do it all.You also get a more assessment of what you have to work on because the players you are going up against are as fast or skilled or tenuous as you are.It's a no brainer really.Sharing time with other talented players also builds character in every player.
11:50 well yeah, just look at their standings. It is not her dad running the team and the bench though... it is the other nut.
Look at njx. You have 1 kid run from the left side of the field to take a right corner. You have a defender taking the goal kicks. Really? Why do you have a keeper? Being trained correctly? 9 other kids on field cant perform a corner kick? Really at this level and they want to be ecnl. Wake up people
there are a lot of coaches who prefer to have defenders take the goal kicks. That is not unusual.
Is that correct training? Keep your keeper involved in the game?
I joined a team this year that has a Daddy coach. This coach daughter is very good and does deserve to play where slotted. Very calm on ball, great vision. HE DOES NOT HAVE HER TAKE ALL KICKS, PKS, ETC. She does take some, but others take more. Hard to argue when she knocks in a 35 yard direct kick in for a goal.My point is he is very fair, my kid earned her way into the starting line up, even another girl on this team plays earned her way into the starting mid field spot. He plays the best players period. ExcelLent COACH, Great trainer (teaches technical skills), more importantly- kids love him
Defenders should be taking kicks. There are many teams that have one girl taking all kicks not allowing development of other players. Coach is at fault. One girl taking kicks, throw ins, corners. I guess they are trying to get her noticed only. At high level all players should be involved especially when the one girl can not get in goal at close range. A waste of a kick.
played all teams, only team that just uses one player is NJX.
2:06, are you with the Hotshotz?
Or WC Charlton?
Or Black?Those are the only 3 girls that I would defend their abilities
I am not from Hotshotz. Live in NJ
RageBlackManalapanBoca E. Bruns
What if your kid is a goalie who's really good. At what age do they start playing the entire game? If a team has a clear starting goalie, is it better to have a back up who doesn't play the field very good or is better to have a good field player and you cross the bridge of a back up goalie when you need it? I know depends on the league, if it's an important league every game counts so you want to have a good back up. But do they split the halves or do they alternate games?Let's show the goalies some love.
Doesnt matter if someone comes that is better than precious. What precious wants, precious gets. I want to start and I want to play the whole game or Im taking my ball and going home.
At what age do you think a kid should start settling into their position. My kid is moved around a lot she's good enough to help her team where ever they need her (not goalie) and not hurt them. But she's more of a Jack of all trades and master of none. Has the skill set.Aggressive, fast, average height I guess, uses both feet equally, okay soccer IQ. But has a tough time adjusting to each position and the transition game, her natural ability allows her to make up for it, but she's working harder than she should which causes her to be all over the place sometimes.So at what age do you think they need to have 1 position? if at all.
A goalkeeper who does not take goal kicks is:a) incapable inherentlyb) incapable due to lack of trainingc) sacrificed so that the team can win with a field player booming the ball so that the team can get the ball outd) playing for a team that does not have the player's best interest in minde) playing for a team that does not get the tactical importance of releasing all field players forward for the long kick or short and wide for a ball played local and downWeak.
MF Black wins 4-1 over PDA Wow!!!!
To me that's impressive to make finals while playing up an age. Congrats. Way to go MF
The goal at this age should be to be win and lose about the same. Kids develop the most when they play against players at or slightly above their level. I do understand that winning creates opportunities, so I think that is a good counter argument. Agree on MFA impressive for a team to be able to play up like that. Granted the aren't playing A teams, still impressive.
Impressive! LOL, They are playing "b" teams at u13. Storm could beat their u13 NPL team and most of the teams from the EDP first division could beat most of the NPL u13 teams. Anyway, Congrats MF dad.
Storm could not beat Black then lose to NJX in finals, lose WC, lose to FC Stars, lose to Scorpions. They r sooo good. 2nd reams for these ECNL clubs are very good. Many of us would welcome the opportunity to play for there B teams. PDA you can knock it, does not look good that your 2nd team gets man handled
PDA u r 1 win 2 t 5 loses vs top teams. Lets not forget ur trip to MA. Shut in both games. Ring a bell?
It's not the first team dude.....it's not the ECNL team. It's the development team. Those players are not on the ECNL for a reason. Look at the NPL u13 score lines. See how lopsided the scores are. Not very good. Just sayin'
PDA which way is it? All I hear is This Is the place to be. Our 2nd and 3rd are better than most A teams. Now you are saying this is not true. I have an email from your club stating just this. You guys are off the charts. PDA first beat other ECNL teams then I will take you seriously. Right your team have proven nothing.
PDA, always make excuses.
Yeah, I dont understand why MF Pre-ECNL is playing up against "B" teams. Makes no sense in my mind. EACH AND EVERY of the top 5-10 teams, "A" teams, should never have a problem beating any "B" team from any Club.You can use the excuse that they are a year older, makes them faster and bigger. That's nonsense, your "A" team is fast, and strong, and big. It's a true waste of a season in my honest opinion!Look, I am rooting for you! Bring the win back to NJ for us all, but come on, get back to your age group and level of play, and bring that win home to New Jersey as well!Good luck in the finals!
Maybe the grass was too long. PDA always has a excuse when they lose
If you have been around long enough, most people know, that majority of clubs have weak "b" teams. PDA is actually right about their club. But, that only takes into effect, once kids start going to hs. At this age, "b" teams are no good. Once the boys start coming around and kids start thinking about other things, there will be less teams for the leftover soccer fanatics to play for. Therefore, that will make Academies "b" teams much better because those players will be too good for the older rec town clubs. Not till the HS years though.
Matchfit is best team in NJ.But they will have a lot of explaining to do when the lose to the PDA ecnl team.Maybe then, they'll start to be a little less cocky.
storm dominates U12 soccer!!!!!!!! lol
How about just saying MF Black did a great job representing u12.Nope not on this board.Looks like who ever wins tomorrow's NJ Wildcat / Dragons game will win the MF Event one flight doesn't look very strong. STA was given a gift.How was the the pre-ECNL FC Bucks team?
2013/2014 NE girls NPL PDA team is the South team. I thought the PDA B team was the 2nd North team. Isn't South almost like a stand alone? They just send their stars to play in ECNL.
MF parent: none of our parents had time today to post. We all were too busy touring Boston. We are not on here saying we are #1. We are excited to win today, just want to improve daily. As far PDA, we recognize them as a top team and look forward to some great games with them.
Well said 9:39. Let falcons enjoy their day. As for the posts from storm parents, I really doubt the PDA Madrid team came into the game today expecting to lose as you apparently believe they should have being inferior and all to kids a year younger. More likely they expected a cakewalk and got caught in a dogfight looking ahead to the finals. Storm parents, you should refrain from bashing your B teams at pda. They help pay the bills afterall.
19:14 so right.B teams pay for the scholarships for recruiting players to A Team.OOPS!
sorry meant 10:14
Dragons have chance to make s statement in todays game at MaatchFit Tournament.They have some big wins this spring and made US Club State Cup semifinals.
Wow. MFA won again. So how many u13 players did they bring? It's starting to make sense now.
Zero, look at picture on Coaches twitter same girls on his website
That's awesome then!
Who is following u12 soccer coaches on Twitter? Really? LOL
If u follow Matchfit, u follow many others. Do u need me to explain twitter?
You're a twit
STA 2DRAGONS 0Nice "B" team..... Losers
4:24 just so I understand your post - you an adult just called a bunch of 12 year old kids losers? WOW
Another great showing this weekend by the Wildcats parentsThey are a special group
They won big.
And deserved it!!!
The wildcat parents were more than appropriate so quit beating a dead horse, you are reaching my friend and it's obvious!
About only thing pda can do now is hurl personal insults as now their club is 0-3 vs Wildcats this spring!3 Games3 Fields3 PDA Teams3 Wildcats wins3 Wildcats shutouts of PDA entire ProgramComposite Score -Wildcats 5 goals PDA(Storm-Ajax-Dragons) 000 goalsCan you say SWEPT
Dragons girls had nothing left in the tank vs STA in 2nd game today after selling out in Wildcats game early today and coming up short.
I nominate the PDA parents for the sportsmanship award for this spring U12 season.
1st Prize is a FREE case of PDA KoolAid.Only cost is $100. Shipping and Handling.
8:03 can you say awesome sauce. NYE #23 I'd be on here bragging too. GS points woop de doo!!! Finally got that first trophy.
Credit is due:to Wildcats beat every PDA team it faced. Say what you want, the results are on the field.to MF Black, WOW heading to NPL finals.
Boy is was only a matter of time that the Wildcats finally won something and now as expected they are out in full force chirping like a bunch of first timers. Enjoy your 15 minutes. We'll see if you can even field a team for the full U13 season. It's like a revolving door with that team...players constantly coming and going throughout the year. Quite amusing.
Give credit to Wildcat players nice job girls!But your parents are special indeed
It all starts with the fanny pack guy, he is something else. Can not imagine what he was like today with Cats winning tournament. Glad I wasn't there to witness it.
As previously reported here.Fanny Pack Guy is now part of PDA Storm. No longer with Wildcats.Was not with them this weekend.Live with it PDA.You were unable to even manage 1 goal vs Wildcats in 3 games among your 3 teams this season.And Wildcats only had 11 of their players there today. 3 starters missing due to injury and Holiday conflicts.New Standout keeper there today watching but didn't play yet.Only sub vs Dragons was a younger Player from Wildcats U11 team they brought along so they would have one sub.
Great Job WIldcats - How do you compare the 3 PDA teams - style of play. And YES MF Black you go GIRLS!!!Once the new season starts results will counts for some teams on this board. Just like they counted for MF black this season. Say what you want about it only being u12 soccer. But these girls are going to a National event and can come home national Champions.We will have 3 NPLs starting in the Fall and if we count New England and Virginia 5 NPLs to follow plus the Spring region 1 Premier/Colonial League for NON NPL teams and everyone's favorite EDP- Good times ahead - let's see hoe the summer warm ups go. I hope the pre-ecnl teams still play EDP next season.
9:28 - Ouch Are there any more U12 Girls Teams in PDA Program they can trot out to face Wildcats??What about PDA Shore?Are they ready?
Unfortunately wildcats girls will suffer in the end, just like their older teams.Parents are just so over the top.Wildcats parents , perhaps you can provide us with info on how your older teams are doing.Which older team in the club are you following?I know, I know, your team will be different.
9:35 -Non of the older wildcats teams in the club were playing at this level when they were U12 either.Different program in place with this team.results clearly speak to that.Your best bet is to keep the focus on your other pda teams and age groups and avoid playing this Wildcats team in the future.Wildcats team is much stronger and deeper for U13.
PDA when they lost to NJX/Wildcats this season:Attack the parentsattack the coachattack the clubscomplain about the field sizescomplain about the grass too highattack the styles of playClaim they didn't really try to winclaim games are meaningless /glorified scrimmages when they loseStill waiting for why they were shut out in all these games.Maybe they were practicing their bunker defense and not really trying to score.
9:40For the record not a PDA parent .I know every player on the team of wildcats and know the program well.The technical skills of this team is just not that good.You can hang your hit on beating PDA teams . who cares!Bottom line , except for two players on the team.The technical abilities of these kids are just not that good.Stop justifying yourselves by how you beat up on PDA. You are making the beating of PDA a milestone that your team measures your success on.We both know , that except for 2 player all others would struggle in a technical system.Enjoy winning your first tournament.By the way, if PDA decides not to go forward with The EDP playoffs and East meadow wins tonight in the northYou should be probably thanking them for giving their spot to you.One other thing, If you took your top three girls on the wildcat team and you compared them to top 3 girls on Matchfit or PDA or NJX, it wouldn't be close.Enjoy your tournament win.So act like you've been there before and enjoy your kick and run success.
Can anyone share the link for the teams playing for Regions. Storm heading to it, looking to see teams that made it from other states
I don't think the Wildcats want to bring PDA shore into the conversation. Remember PDA shore is toms river.that's one team you never had an easy time with and you don't want to compare records with over the last 5 years...your team had a nice year, but why so stupid!
They eventually will follow the player that went to Storm.
The Wildcat parents sure are a classy bunch. I can't imagine if MFB, PDA Storm/Ajax, NJX, etc came on here and repeatedly (ad nausea) tooted their horn like that after winning a limited field event. They would look like the idiots that we are seeing now. No wonder you have so few players, who would want to play there? For the record, not a PDA/MF/NJX parent, just someone calling it like it is.
@1033.....I don't think its the parents, I know bunch of them there & they are classy top notch bunch. Unfortunately its the coach & I better just stop there.
Regardless of whether e. meadow wins tonight vs world class the loser of that games best possible record is 5-1-1 for 16 points.Wildcats finished with 5 wins 0 losses and 2 ties that's 17 points.Wildcats were locked for best 2nd place spot in edp champions league with the 1 point for the tie with njx in their last game last monday.They knew that going into that njx game they only needed 1 point to lock best 2nd place spot among the 3 divisions.Perhaps you should learn to count before you make judgments on what players are good or not.Wildcats defenders dominated the so called skilled players on all 3 pda teams.As far as SWEEPING ALL 3 PDA TEAMS this spring.We care!And as far as qualifying for final 4 EDP Champions League, we care about that as well.both are accomplishments that our team is very proud to have achieved this season.Many very good teams in EDP this season, NJX, PDA AJAX, loser of e. meadow vs world class game this week, Crush, and yes, Matchfit Black did not make the cut for edp champions league..
Ohh. If true, even worse for them.
10:44What if they tie......Ouch!
Oh my god, 10:44 is stupid, it hurts.
Enough already, A week ago you hedge your bet by coming on here saying it is just a relaxing tournament and many players not coming, etc. and now you come here after winning your first ever event with the closest team in the field at approximately 1/3 your GS point ranking -Aren't you supposed to win that? Comical.
10.53 boy you are dense.world class has 5 wins 1 tie and 0 losses. a tie with e. emeadow (4-1-1) would leave world class with an insurmountable lead at 5 wins 0 losses and 2 ties(17 points) and they would lock 1st place spot from north.A tie with world class would also leave e. meadow with 4 wins 1 loss and 2 ties( 14 points)That would not catch wildcats 17 points for best 2nd place.Wildcats are locked for best 2nd.Just let it go before your head explodes from stupidity.
So true 11:01.Let them be happy.It does sound more like the coach than a parent.
11:04 spot on. Wildcats were locked in for best 2nd after tie with njx.You are debating with morons though so they still won't figure it out.Any counting beyond 10 is above their pay grade.
LOL, all this talk about PDA dominance.. Wildcats- Who won your EDP division last Fall, Who won your EDP division this Spring? Who won your PDA bracket this Spring?

If you are such an elite team, you really should only compare yourself to Storm, PDAs A team. The B and C teams should be beneath you and your excitement over beating them seems a bit obsessive. Your record is 1-1 vs Storm and frankly I have seen both teams play, if they played 10 times maybe WCs win 1 or 2 at the very most
There is no C team for PDA Get your facts straight
Ok B1 and B2. Is that better?
How about A2 and A3.
You obviously know nothing about PDAThere is Storm A team (North)Dragons B team (North)PDA Ajax South TeamPDA Shore (Toms River/Shore area)
I do think Dragons are the C team.....Will Shore be a C2?
There are a bunch of sad individuals on this board. Adults who spent their time this beautiful Father's day weekend to come here and sling mud at 12 year old girl who work very hard year round to play a game they love, are losers. If you are that jealous of a program, team etc. instead of coming here and spewing garbage, go kick the ball around with your kid.
1207 sums it wellNice year for Wildcats
PDA Shore team is named Fusion. New coach chose that name cause they have girls from TRFC COPA, BOCA, SJEB, RAGE & Jackson Avalanche
9:07You are clueless
NY parent from an ECNL Club here. I think it's strange to hear pda denigrate their own teams as b and c when they lose.When they do well it's we have 3 teams in final 4 or 5 of NJ or whatever. Then it's what a program top to bottom. Ajax and Dragons were claiming to be top 5 in nj just a month ago.Now pda club is ready to throw them under the bus as substandard teams. Do you charge those families any less than Storm parents?You guys at PDA air your own dirty laundry down there.
How can you say it was PDA that posted? Wildcats have offended nearly every team on this anonymous board.
One thing was very clear this weekendPDA knows how to run a tournamentMF still has some work to do in that dept.
10:40- If you read this site you should know that EVERY team is terrible out here. Win a tournament.. your terribleWin State or NJ Cup.. your terribleWin U13 NPL... your terrible.There are 3 very good teams in NJ and 5 very competitive teams. I don't know what team your daughter players for but... they are terrible also.
Where did all the players from NJ Force end up, they had a few very good players. Hope they go to very strong teams.
Finally able to catch up on the blog.Wildcats back on this forum, not shocking. You win the blog goes nuts.I would like to congratulate MF Black girls. Way to go. Great weekendWildcats take a page out of Black parents. No Comment on this blog about them at all. If anyone should be on hear bragging or being excited should be this team. Learn to just Sit back and just play.
Take your own advise
11:27 another mental midget.Tell others don't mention wins and then do just that. Must be same guy who said e. meadow vs world class loser could still get best 2nd spot.
You guys are all clowns all this about Wildcats this PDA that and nothing about the below"Anonymous said...STA 2DRAGONS 0Nice "B" team..... LosersJune 15, 2014 at 4:24 PM"An adult calling 12 year old kids losers and no one said a thing. Great Job now lets go back top Wildcats this and which is PDA's B team or D team.
What league will pda shore be playing in?
storm parents are the ones calling dragons and ajax B and C teams.Teams who beat ajax and dragons would have no reason to call them lesser teams.
Again Dragons had empty tank after selling out vs wildcats in early game sunday and coming up short.The girls gave a spirited effort in early game and left it all on the field. 2nd place consolation game vs STA sunday afternoon was a flat spot emotionally for Dragons after that loss.
NY ECNL parent, its true, your daughters team sucks, have a nice day!
We had plenty in the tank no excuses we just got beat and STA played a good game and won that is how it goes.There are a bunch of teams that can beat each other on any given day..sometimes the ball bounces your way sometimes it doesn't
To the pda parent who said that storm is the a team and dragons the b team.But Ajax is considered just the south team.You too are also a b/c team.If not then why do your best players get moved to the north?You not just considered the south.
If Dragons and Ajax are B and C teams then what does that make the other teams who come on here? I guess they are all B and C teams. What a waste of time to play for one of those teams.
PDA, MF, WC and any other ECNL club all have.1st Team - ECNL2nd Team - NPL - Reserve TeamAdditional Teams - Reserve TeamsBasic Standard: Be structured as a pyramid, with a broad base of players and multiple teams in each age group at young age groups, narrowing to fewer teams at the senior age groups. Besides what's all this talk about A and B team? You have your top team and then a bunch of reserve teams trying to develop a few players to move up if any. It's simple. Every parent understands this that brings their kid to an ECNL club for a tryout - either your kid has the goods are needs to improve. That's up to the parents to stay and pay or leave for another team where there kid will start and play for the "A" team.
Maybe there should be a separate blog devoted exclusively to PDA and Wildcats. Then you can bicker back and forth without annoying the rest of us. It's getting very tiresome for the rest of us who really don't care...
So is PDA Ajax the "B" team? Your tryouts say "up and coming NPL team" weren't tryouts at the Ajax fields, to play for PDA Ajax? Were some girls moved to PDA Storm after making Ajax team and now playing for Storm in the North? I am totally confused.

Does PDA B and C teams pay less money than the "A" team - Storm ?
2:07 Who else or what else should we talk about?
Can we get result of world class vs e. meadow in final deciding game of edp north?Winner gets final spot in EDP champions league in july.World Class in with win or tie, e. meadow in with win and resulting head to head tiebreaker over world class.Was that game played last night?
yes tied game 5-5
2:10 Why would they at u12 or u13? You get the same training and my guess is you do the same amount of events.I can see ECNL costing more at u14 when you have the increased travel.
Do other teams (wildcats, NJX, Rage, crush, etc) pay less than the so called PDA B and C teams?
Do you think most top players on Town Teams can make an ECNL B Team?Do you think every player on Wildcats or these other teams Can make a ECNL B team?1 through 18 who has the better collection of players? I'm not talking about the top 5 or 6 players the complete team.
I thought Ajax was playing econ?Now I hear they are playing npl.Does anyone know where they will be playing.Or has it not been decided yet.

Wildcats players happy at Wildcats. Ajax players happy at Ajax. Dragon players happy at Dragons. All good players who can play on any team. Have a great summer. Been a long year. Let the girls be girls and unwind. Be safe
Well said. Good Luck Storm & Black
Dragons might pay same amount but do far less events than storm and ajax.Played about 1/3 number of games.PDA did not invest the $1200. per season necessary to get dragons into edp this past fall and spring and they could have competed.they played far weaker comp in their league.also Dragons have not traveled out of state this year to play any tournaments.clearly pda using their dues money elsewhere in club.No where near the number of events for their money as other teams at other clubs at same or higher level as dragons team.Dragons families were shortchanged.
