Just ask yourself if you can honestly and truthfully state my daughter has improved. Did my daughter learn anything new. If you aren't blinded by a instant gratification of the wins now and you are fine with ecnl players playing down on the npl team and taking more minutes from your kid, then You should be fine.
6:45 So you are asking them if they are fine playing down with NPL? What would they be doing if they left ECNL team for another, wouldn't they be playing down?I am sure these parents played every scenario in their head over and over before they moved to these teams. The one thing that was not a secret was they have 4 teams with 20+ players and the club's tryouts usually brings new talent. So sitting was just a matter of time if they are not a top talent. Not easy and not for everyone but it still is a CHOICE and as long as their options that's all you could ask for.
I was speak of being on a npl team and having ecnl players come down and play in the so called important games. If it is all up front and explained completely of how it works, then buyer beware. I don't think it is explained completely and there lies the problem. You get that email that you made the team you have 24 hours to accept and make payment with your credit card or your offer will be rescinded. I think everyone assumes if you made the team and make your payments and buy your uniforms, then you would expect to play.The saying goes if you went to a car dealer and negotiated a price but the salesman tells you if you walk out of the door now the price isn't good when you come back. Would you run????
Because of forums like this and word of mouth from other parents, parents now know what to expect for next year from PDA. if they still choose to sign up then there is nothing to gripe about.
8:02 I guess the big question is - how was the tryout turnout this year? If it was the same as before then why care? I think when people choose an ECNL club they know their kid can be replaced at any time if they don't then shame on them. If they picked one of these clubs they obviously think their kid is that type of a talent. Some times the truth hurts - but answers will be given to parents about their kids. Another question is what do you do? Leave and you will be replaced just as quick - so the club doesn't get hurt. Is it important to have your kid dig down deep to see if there is something there for them to continue competitive soccer.I don't know what I would do if my kid was part of a rotation that didn't play. If I move her it might give the signal that I don't believe in her even if it's a move I think is best for her.So please unless you are in that spot shut it and let these parents handle their situation the way they think is right.
It's not a secret. PDA tells you all of this before you accept a spot on the team. Every parent thinks their kid is a "starter". They probably were better than players on their previous teams.At PDA, you don't stop trying to impress after tryouts. EVERY practice you are being evaluated. Until now practice has always been the emphasis for development at PDA. Other teams mocked them when they weren't playing in a lot of tournaments. How did that work out? The roster sizes are exaggerated. They will be at least 20, ECNL probably higher. Lets say you have 22 kids rostered- If you have 2 to 3 kids injured and a second keeper there is 3 to 4 players not rostering.IF everybody is healthy (which has never happened) - We usually play a Saturday and Sunday game vs MA,NJ,PA,CT. 3 players and a keeper wont roster, then a different 3 players and the other keeper wont roster the second day. We play 80 minute games. Thats a lot of time for 10 field players. The time is not split evenly, but NOBODY splits their time evenly.I understand some people are going to hate PDA regardless, thats fine I hate the Yankees for similar reasons. I Just wanted to try and explain the situation for those that were curious.I read about all of these unhappy parents on the NPL side. There are unhappy parents on every team. If you brought your child back to tryouts, you can't be that unhappy.
8:31 Well explained. I don't think the club that is being referred about is PDA. I believe most think they have their act together and what is expected there.
I agree with @8:40. The club being discussed is MF. There is no transparency with that club. So many side conversations and secret handshakes. What team, coaches, 'HOME" game locations.The only certainty is that if they don't get your deposit, you could lose your spot. Very welcoming!
8:31... Amen! My daughter does not play for a ECNL team but has been approached. PDA hides nothing. It is my choice to play for another club. Everything you said was explain to me. I don't begrudge any player who plays for ECNL. Good luck to all the girls in this age group. Have a great weekend!
Yes, but the bill will come due when they start up the U14 team in the fall.No way all those counting on those promises being fullfilled will have their expectations realized.Feel bad for the ECNL coach if he returns.He did a nice job and had his team coming along well and now he will have an impossible situation to juggle that group. how will he evaluate players weekly and fit them into his group when they are training at facilities 2 1/2 hours apart?
Will be interesting how that plays out.How many from the 3 MF teams were given spots on next years U14 ECNL team after tryouts?
2.5 hrs apart? Here we go again with the lies. If you do not know what you are talking about, please do not speak. I guess some people always need to add a nudge to try to ruin something. Nice try.
You only the truth's of real positive and negatives if you play in the club. Majority of people looking from the outside-in provide false statements or are all hear say.It's looks as the NJ ECNL/NPL clubs do well in league play if you look at the ECNL and NPL websites. Can't really go by GS points as many teams do not see other unless bracketed together in tournaments.
11:01- Why don't you enlighten us then?
As PDA and MFA try and extend their reach, you will always have problems. It's frustrating because you don't even know the questions to ask. You'd need to have an attorney to make sure you covered it all. In the end though and starting with U14, both PDA and MFA have just one A team. After that it's messy, and at the younger ages it's messy. You have to always be reminding yourself that it's just a kids game and to just have fun while it lasts.
How many players were givern spots on ECNL team at MF for U14 at recent tryouts?
Come on guys what's this with the problems BS? PDA and MF are NJ ECNL clubs and they will try to keep players away from each other by expanding rosters. This is no problem it's an opportunity for the kids to play on a very good team. They will practice twice a week and for some it will be their games this will make it very fierce for development.This is great for the clubs and for the kids that also get to play in games. Is this the only option? Hell no!! But it is an option and for some it's the right option. Nuff said!! There are no questions to ask we all think of our kids as starters problem is you just need to hope the coach does if game time is your cup of tea,if it doesn't bother you enjoy the ride or move to a team where game time won't be an issue
Do not go to PDA team early . say u9 to u12.. this is a big mistake.Parents are finding this out now. those that have been there since u9 have found it makes no difference whether you were there since u9 or you came at u12 or u13. Things are changing at PDA quickly!

For most of the girls who live in tr. It will take a minimum of 1.5 hours to get to Jefferson on a weekday for practices.
Not going to jefferson for practices, going where they have always practiced, Raritan.

Dear 4:12, no.
Anybody care to guess at the GS point value of the top 3 flight at Delco?
SureF1 is 10k for sure -will do other 2 in a second
The Ukranians flight might go up once GS manually enters the PAE NCS since they were runners up and cash in on some nice GS points.before is the project flight value and the top 5 teams in each flight per GS national rank F1 = 10,0002 NEFC ELITE U13 GIRLS (MA)7 FC VIRGINIA PRE-ECNL 01 (VA)13 CREW JUNIORS ELITE (OS)20 WORLD CLASS FC '01 CHARLTON (NYE)25 PENN LEGACY FC 01 BLACK (PAE) F2 = 9,00018 GREATER BINGHAMTON UNITED FC 01 SELECT (NYW)27 ALBERTSON FURY '01 PRE-ECNL (NYE)36 NEW YORK SC G01 (NYE)61 PA CLASSICS ACADEMY 01 (PAE)68 CENTURY V 0102 ELITE (PAW) F3 = 9,00023 YARDLEY MAKEFIELD SOCCER YMS BANSHEES (PAE)43 CFC WEST ORANGE (CT)48 HMMS EAGLE FC 01 SPIRIT (PAE)60 ISA 01 NPL (NYE)73 NJCSA GALAXY (NJ)
This weekend's tournaments will be up for grabs I assume many teams will be brining in guess players from there newer players coming onto rosters this Fall.
We are not brining in any guest player, we have never used guest players, if you roster with the team, you play, end of saga, good night.
My predictionsF1 - FC VirginiaF2 - CFC Arsenal SkyF3 - CFC West Orange
Heard that CFC is forming a United team next year at u14. Based on what I've seen from both the CFC teams I would say they would be a tough our next year at u14. Uniting usually occurs at u15 for that club so this is something new and probably for the good.
10:21 Good thing for most of us is they will be ECNL and only playing ECNL teams. So happy there is an ECNL board for all that talk you guys can jump in with CA guys complaining about team selections.For most us the NPl team will not be as strong and not flighted in F1 inmost leagues - just like at Jefferson and Delco.Question, why do the PDA North teams avoid Delco? Looks like the top 3 flights are pretty strong even GS gives them the nod as > 9,000. Going by GS Delco stronger (deeper) than PDA and equal to Jefferson. We goof on PA teams -but props to them they do have 2 of the regions majors in Spirit & DELCO to go with VA who has WAGS and Jefferson Cup and Bethesda & CASL not that far away in either direction. Up North we have PDA and FC Stars - EDP Events knocking on the door, Manhattan has to many weather issues to count on. Besides - i would rather drive south to VA and have my kid play in warmer weather.
I can see why MF avoided Delco this year.2014MF ECNL 3 ties (3rd our of 4 in bracket)MF NPL 1 Win and 2 Ls (3rd out of 4 bracket)2013MF ECNL 1W, 1T, 1L (3rd out of 4in bracket) MF NPL 1W, 2T (Finalist)
Because MF can't win out of state other than weak b team npl league. MF ecnl slightly better out of state, not much though. Npl coach is always looking for the next meal ticket
