U15 Girls Youth Soccer

U15 young women players are not playing for fun, they are playing to win.

Best to step aside, because they are about to barrel through...

Say what you want, but if the history is correct on GotSoccer or other sites, the Wildcats have proven to be dominant. History says they have lost 1 game in the past year in all of their losses (4 total I believe) and the other 3 losses came in tournaments versus teams where the Wildcats were flighted in the highest of the highest flights. I don't have a horse in this race but I think it can be said that the team is legit and all of the people who beg to differ need to look at the results. They speak volumes. Stop bashing them because of their parents (I have seen them bashed constantly on this board) and respect what these young ladies (8th graders and maybe some freshmen) from NJ do. It's quite impressive if you look at it as an outsider and objectively. On that note, Happy Father's Day to the male posters on the board. Back to drinking. Lol.

Honestly if the cats coach wasn't such a pompous d'bag I'd root them on. Onto u15

6:10 Thanks Wildcat parent. It has been said here many times with many examples to support, it is the parents (and coach) that make it very hard to root for them. Nothing about the kids.

9:53 Honestly who cares what we think and who we root for. These teams could careless as they root for their kids just like I root for my kid and her team

Congrats:
NJ Wildcats defended EDP NPL title
FC Virginia defended VA NPL title

Congrats:
PDA Ajax for winning 1st NorthEast NPL title
Massapequa for winning 1st NYCSL NPL title

Good luck in Colorado!!!!!!!!!!!

All those away Semi's and Finals (USYSA Region 1 Tournament, USYSA Nationals, National Cup, NPL Finals, ODP Semi-Finals and ODP National Championships)-- Can someone please re-visit with me again how it cost less than playing to ECNL club if your club team is attending 2 or 3 of those events?

Good analysis of PA Classics chances of getting GDA from the 15 page

Remember who chooses the DA clubs? USSF
Who is the darling of the MNT right now? Christian Pulisic.
Which club is credited with developing Pulisic? PAC
Who is the USSF appointed head of the girl's NTC and YNT scouting in our state association? Todd Hoffard
For which club is Hoffard the 16-17 00 coach? PAC

There it is. The big question is who gets the second (possibly third???) spot.

Tryout next season what are you talking about, DA's don't hold tryouts I thought it's based on player recommendation and how well they develop in the system the following months. I never see tryouts for boy's DA teams anywhere.

6:54 \My daughter is a 2001 and the chatter on that board is identical to what you are saying but directed at the best NON-ECNL team at u15. Parents are crazy, coach is looney they don't play pretty soccer everything I heard about the Wildcats. Makes me wonder if we really have shills (not calling you one) on this board looking to pull away certain players from top teams. We read the same stuff about NJ crush about the chopper and how they chase GS points well they fell off the map how about Second Tier Academy remember that one. What happened to these teams? How about NJCSA Elite? Did these players lose their best players just curious? In PA PennLeagcy had a good thing but somehow if you read this board they were a rec team that was the best in PA now their players are all over the place if you read this board. PAC has been trying to get players if you read all the GDA posts and lancaster super teams posts if all stayed home.

Wildcats coach does not have a child on the team.Please stop your own garbage. And please don't root for them. True 8:07 IGFA U15 Team is constantly attacked in the same way on that blog after having similar consistent success.

No actually players from Match fFt and PDA have come to Wildcats Averbuch U14.

No actually girls left MF and PDA to go to the cats because they were not getting playing time. Cats have some good kids, coach is a tool as well as half the parents! Cats wish their club was as good as PDA and MF and wish their kiddies got the same college exposure!

Anonymous said...

Never.. Ever... Thought I would be in a position to defend Wildcats... My daughter has played against them since they were 10 years old. Won some, lost most, but always great games! Anyone who says they are technically or tactically lacking does not know the game. They are very aggressive and physical, but within the rules (for the most part). Their coach is loud and obnoxious, but if you listen to him he is correct and instructive. The parents are horrible though.... Can't defend them.

Anonymous said...

10:24 What exactly are you defending???? Nothing negative was said about the kids and the rest of what you wrote was in complete agreement with everything said prior.

Anonymous said...

Why attack Wildcat parents and coach if there is nothing to gain? Why make the atmosphere look toxic on that team if there is nothing to be gained?

I think it's genius actually, troll a little and then let us fools do the rest. Is this really happening? Why else would any poster not on a team post about the parents and the coach?

Anonymous said...

As was said about IGFA Team on the U15 blog it's same thing. Every team that has consistent success is cut down on the blogs. If they can't beat them on the field the next best target is the parents, coach, style of play,etc. Do you see anyone attacking anything about the teams who have fallen off in their results?

Averbuch has added some talent for summer and beyond. They will continue as 02 and win in the fall. They welcome a round robin with PDA Storm and MF ECNL any time, any weekend. The coaches and girls just get the game, from front to back. soccer is 90% mental as is most sports. What really separates Averbuch from all the others is the mental part of the game. Great coaching, game time coaching. This is what they need at this stage U15, great coaching will separate the packs.

Anonymous said...

Ha. What an arrogant statement. Averbuch might not be top 5. There are some really talented kids from current u13 that are very talented. Not from wildcats but a lot of other teams. Why dont you wait until you see how good pda mf world class and others are next year before you speak up.

Anonymous said...

Ok I will bite that post was obviously not from wildcats averbuch but from someone outside the team looking to stir the pot. At least try and be a little less obvious. They have not added playets for rhe summer.
they played short again over the weekend. And of course there is no way yet to know for sure who will be the top 2002 teams next year at u15. Although nj rush U13 team looked very good at npl playoffs.

I would put my money on rush blue u13 adding a few from rush sjeb u14

They looked very good vs TSF in NPL Final on Sunday.Quality side for sure.

Northeast NPL were played this past weekend as well PDA showed some quality play in all age groups.

Anonymous said...

4:25 Since you bring up PDA South.

As great of an option that PDA is my girl will never play for PDA if not on the ECNL team from the start.

Playing for NPL team is the kiss of death, not good enough to make ECNL team. However, if you do well you replace a player that struggled at the bottom of the list fighting for minutes you may or may not even get.

Yes playing for the NPL team isn't bad, but what do you do if ECNL team wants her you can't say NO and you go from being a showcase player to a rotation player and that is my problem.

Anonymous said...

You can always say no if you know your daughter may not see the field and has little chance to be on a top 100 roster. If you are looking tier 3 div1 and div3 your chances are better for showcasing at npl level. You need to find the right fit for your kid. Absolutely no is a choice.

Anonymous said...

6:25 I agree No is a choice - but my point is saying NO then sends the message that I don't believe in you and that is not what I'm saying.

My point is - ECNL coach doesn't like what he/she is seeing (that's cool) it's their opinion. So you play NPL your kid goes crazy like she can, the ECNL team wants her - but will probably be given a short leash and since she didn't impress the first time odds are she won't the second time so if you accept and you almost have to not for the club but for your kid to show that you are in her corner but you have already been around the corner a few times so you know what's up but you have to play nice for everyone.

Like you say if she tells them NO - I'm basically saying baby you're not that good and I agree you are not that good. NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. Soccer is Subjective and at 14 to kill a dream not me. I don't see a clean out.

My kid is a D1 player that has all the tools including a dad who's a tool.
Not a soccer school D1 but a D1 soccer player. But we have 5 years for that and no way am I rushing that.

My prediction:

ECNL Champ - FC Virginia
NPL Champ - PDA South or NJ Wildcats
Region 1 Champ - BRYC
USYSA national Champ - the team from MI repeats
National Cup - ????????

PDA SOUTH NOVA is a really good team. The fact that they are playing in the NPL is hilarious. They have not played one good team in over a year. What a waste of parents hard earned dollars to have to travel to Colorado for a trophy.

It does seem that Nova is a good team. Why dont they play edp south? You have teams like pipeline and rush blue? Seems like the pda south product lacking in certain respects. What tournaments do you ho to?

Nova is a great team in their own little bubble. What did you do in the state cup? That's right.... You lost. Jeff Cup.... Didn't go. Why? Because it was outside your bubble.

Anonymous said...

I do not think anyone trying to stir pot about Wildcats. But I do know for a fact they added a few players for fall 2016 to replace 01's. And I gather it would be hard to tell how fall will go. When someone says top 5 in state or country or region? Currently WC rank 7 in country, 5th in region. They just won EDP title, US club cup title and NPL title. And most girls are coming back. I do see them as solid team in fall. It really depends on what other teams are doing as well, and agreed NJ Rush will be good, Barons should be good and always PDA and MF

Then make up your own mind on their ability and style

I will be watching some of these to judge the overall level of play

Anonymous said...

The MF game was live on youtube, they got completely outplayed by a Michigan team who moved the ball well. Whenever MF got the ball it was very long and direct, rarely if ever played out from the GK. The players joining them next year are in for a large surprise if they continue that style of play, sacrificing development for short term wins at the local ECNL level to only travel to play the better ECNL teams and get beaten comfortably.

Aren't the Gators Team from Mich the one who is number 1 in the country, not Michigan Hawks?
Heard the Gators team is merging with Waza East next year. Now that will be a tough team.

Anonymous said...


Mich Gators are now named national union black 01. They have not lost a game on their got soccer history. they are not an ECNL Team and are not in California, They are currently ranked #2 in US. They are merging with Waza East for next years 2001 Team. Looks like the Mich Hawks team that MF ECNL lost to is not really that highly ranked nor are their gotsoccer results that great.

Anonymous said...

According to youthsoccerrankings.us the Michigan Hawks are #16 in the nation. A slight 1/2 goal favorite over #29 MF so either MI had a good day or MF a bad one. I will watch the video.

Does anyone know if there will their be streaming available for the NPL championship ?

Anonymous said...

I did not watch the 2nd half - MF had no creative play in the 1st half. But regardless of what we think the only thing that matters is what the college coaches on the sideline liked or disliked. The Hawks just had to much speed up front. Did the Hawks also make adjustment up 4-0 to give more players mins?

Just finished Watching the game. National player nice player, shocked to see her in middle. Much more effective on the outside. Just my opinion.

Center backs - could not hold possession, continuously gave ball away. At this level should be better technically. Speed on wings gave MF trouble personally.

Just an opinion of guy sitting home today!

Wow. Watched first half. First 20 minutes were as ugly a soccer match as I have seen. Pass completion percentage was abominable.

I thought other than kick and run and pure athleticism plays not a whole lot to either of these teams.

I did think #7 on michigan looked to be the most skilled and most productive player on the field.

Anonymous said...

How did this National team player do?

Anonymous said...

12:59 i don't think any player played at that level in that game 12:59. I couldn't see one and I love my soccer.

MF had problems on top, the MI team broke them down very easily to get out of trouble and i saw a bunch of players just kicking the ball on both teams, the MI team knew how to attack instead of looking for the home run ball most of the time. I don't think any local elite team would have had trouble playing either team the way they played that game.

Having said that, they were playing in front of college coaches you saw them watching with their notebooks so regardless of what we think these kids have an audience and all it takes is one good sequence and doing the basics

I would think that many of you already realize this truth.

When two high quality teams play against each other; they both tend to look sloppy, more pressured, out of their game, etc...

When they play against a team that is not quite as good; they appear to be great, high percentage possession, in control, etc...

When they play against a team that is definitely better; it is usually painfully obvious.

This match, Michigan is the better side. But not so much more that their game appeared easy or high quality.

The college coaches at that match know that all of those girls are quality players and both teams are more likely to be well coached.

If the girl in whatever particular position that college coach is looking to fill looks good enough, they will recruit her.

Most important part of recruiting for college coaches is the player reaching out to the college, not the other way around. If they know that you want to attend their school, they will be much more interested in you as a player.

GS4 recap going into the final group play day
U14 ECNL Champions League

Group Play:If two teams are tied within their group play, the tie-breaker will be as follows:

Group A
If both Ohio and FC Dallas both win then it will come down to GD, look some for some big scores possibly in Group A action.

Group B
If EM wins today and Eclipse doesn't win then they advance, If Eclipse wins and EM wins then SoCal advances as they do with a win or tie of their own.

Group C
Concorde has already clinched a spot in the Final4 - FC Virginia are done.

Group D
Eagles have also already clinched a spot in the Final4 - MF done trying to get at least one point today and not to give up to many goals as they are in the lead with 8.

Other than the other two ECNL teams there, every team MFA played would smoke every other team in NY/NJ/PA. There are like 150 ECNL clubs, these teams are the best of the bunch. The two CA teams, Eagles and So Cal are likely the top 2 in the country. No shame in losing to these types of teams.

Your team may not get there again. MF had to mess this up somehow. I have NO KNOWLEDGE of this team, I just hear negative comments around our club which is ECNL team and my club previously about how MF is ran and how DOC is FULL Of LIEs.

11 goals in 3 games -7 goal differential (per ECNL website), they belonged?

MF finished on top of a division within their conference that had the mighty FC Bucks, World Class & CFC Delco as 3 of the 6 teams. PDA Storm and PF are nice teams as is MF. I'm not saying MF is a bad club/team, they just got waxed
this weekend, no smoke and mirrors all the teams are good at this event

Cannot claim to be top of their state when they are not the NJYSA State Cup Champions or the NJ US Club State champ.

Winning USYSA and NPL are great accomplishments, but they have huge holes in their national participation. I see the Deanza ECNL team is in NPL, not sure how, but it will be interesting to see how they do.

Anonymous said...

Are there 2 ECNL team at the NPL championships? What's up with that?

Anonymous said...

There is no rule that doesn't allow it. Clubs and teams can pick which leagues they want to play in.

11:41 I will argue for USYSA. Team participates in ERL if they place they play in the National League if they place they qualify for National Championships or Teams can play in their State NCS and qualify for region1 Championships and if they win that they can qualify for national Championships. AND for the top players they can do ODP and if there team is good enough they go to National event on west coast. This equals if not better than ECNL league games and Play offs for Final 4 teams in either option.

region 1 USYSA teams play in WAGS, Bethesda, CASL, Disney, Jefferson, PDA/Delco followed by Post season.

USYSA National league and ERL league games = ECNL league games
USYSA National Championships = ECNL National Championships
USYSA play in many of the same events as ECNL teams.

Equal to me and both will be 2nd level and good options for college when the GDA takes over.

Anonymous said...

11:45 Correct me if I'm wrong - Spirit united was part of PennFusion when they left and joined Delco to form CFC Delco. CFC Delco in the drivers seat if they get GDA and PF will have to kiss a little ass, NO?

Last Comment on MF group.

Eagles gave up 1 goal in 3 games and scored 9 goals or 3 per game

The other 3 MF, Tophat and Michigan vs each other scored scored 13 goals or a little over 4 per game.

MF and Top hat gave up 19 in 6 gamesor a little over 3 per game
Somy question is how good is that Hawks team really?

MF did as good as they could do with the odds stacked against them, which with no disrespect to them just wasn't good enough for this level.

ENJOY your CA vacation - even though my posts came across as attacks they are not just talking about the event and the results and yes I am jealous of your CA vacation much better than TAR beach - some of you know what I'm talking about.

As stated - they should be a bit embarrassed for not having their real team at Nationals.

Now, do you join such an outfit if your goal is getting back to Nationals with them?

I dont know - tough one

Each Match Fit player's family had a choice of going to Nationals or not - and knew the date long beforehand.

If they played the entire season, then the parents said "screw this" - that's sad

I don't think it's sad at all these parents pay money for their child to be happy and if the child didn't want to go - nothing sad about that. Can't blame them for the outcome this weekend. The kids that went had their audience so either they helped them selves or they didn't.

MF didn't make the team lose last time I checked the team played and they had a rough couple of games nothing more.

Watching this game (blues vs fire) both teams just kick the ball forward when under pressure, yellow moves it quicker and keeps their shape a little better. No different than the MF/Hawks game. This is ECNL I guess

My daughters team was close to making the NPL Finals, but we fell short, which in retrospect, probably wasn't the worst thing to happen. As I have read on this blog all year long, between the BYC, and GDA, and ECNL MAFIA, keeping a competitive team together through any type of postseason play was almost impossible. MF suffered with the same problem, but at least they tried, good job MF.

Is anyone else's non-ECNL team games on YouTube to watch? Are your clubs and coaches doing live feeds for your games? Or posting them for later viewing? Everyone knows coaches have been recruiting this way for some time.

Point??? While your kid plays on her iPad and you rip ECNL clubs, the area ECNL kids are being watched by college coaches. The coaches don't care about W-L. They care about who is going to help them win.

Clearly it's not going to be YOUR kid.

I doubt college coaches have the time to watch entire game tapes and why would they be interested in all those players? They want two minute highlight tapes of interested student athletes. I know of many players who were recruited this way. It's not the only way but neither is the ECNL game tape on you tube way.

Anonymous said...

9:36 So you are going to dump your daughter's current team and go running to the closest GDA next week? Don't be stupid and treat the GDA as a mirage and you are a parched soccer parent. You are crazy if they think the GDAs are going to produce immediate results. There is no magic pixie dust that will be sprinkled and POOF! tons of USWNT and college players will be created overnight. ECNL will continue to produce college players until the GDA takes shape, IF it takes shape. It needs to better than the boy's DA. Judging from how little the boys DAs side has produced over the years, the GDA may never live up to its alluded promise.

GotSoccer added the ECNL league just like they did last with the NorthEast NPL. Since they couldn't indentify the ECNL team they created a new account to be claimed and once claimed they would adjust the points.

We read about how GS sucks so bad because they don't include all leagues- here you go it's included. Weread abouthow all tournaments are not included - only PDA events are not included. We read abouthow highly ranked teams are GS chasers.

A team that did it the right way gets killed for many things (I did give them some grief on their recent results),but one thing is for sure is they are not full of themselves and put the sport before the club.

The league flight value was killed because of teams like PDA Storm & EM Hotshots which effected the prize distribution which effects any flight any of the teams in the league play in. Solet's give GS a break - I give theman A+ for trying unfortunately for them a lot that is broken is out of their control.

Sending a highlight reel is just the first step. Then the college coach invited the player to his ID clinic and another player gave her a college tour. Then she got an offer. It happened fast for her because she was a junior in high school and at college age. That's only one way to get recruited, there are many ways.

Do EDP/NYCSL/VA/NewEngland NPL games allow re-entry in the same half? I know ECNL and NorthEast NPL games don't.

This might hurt the NJ Wildcats with their short bench - but lucky for them they can add 3 players that accepted roster spots after their tryout.

So cal wins 4...0 in final.Looks like EM gave them the best game losing 1..0.I guess the number 2 team from Ohio was out of there league and should have stayed home too,acording to some people on here who think they know it all.Congrats too all the teams made it to Cali,their can only be one winner..

My opinion,the teams that can finish did the best.The games I watched were not pretty,lots of long balls,but the California can finish.Always have 2 or 3 players in front of the goal.MF has a lot of chances,get off a cross and no body is there.Looked to me several defenders missing, weak bench.EM goalie kept the games close ,no better then FCV or MF.All need work to keep up with hard working So Cal Blues.

Do the winners of that Mid Atlantic regional tournament even go to Nationals? Not sure if it was their choice not to go, but PDA Ajax won it at U12, PDA Storm at U13 and neither moved on. Is it a PDA thing maybe? STA now has the choice to go to CO at the end of July?

Anonymous said...

8:43 I post the results and I include it in my posts - but it is a fake National Title. Some States go straight to Finals others go to regionals to play teams that pay to play like it was a tournament no qualification what so ever. If it was a legit tournament it would do what the USYSA national event does. it sends it final 4 from it's top league plus the 4 Regional champions that had to win their state championship first.

US Club would be legit and the best tournament if it qualified the ECNL final 4 plus the NPL Champion along with it's 5 Regional champions that had to qualify by winning a state title first.

But it'splay to pay just like our soccer pyramid - you make what you will of it.

Anonymous said...

Yes and no. It's pay to play for regionals but you must win the tournament to go to Nationals or win a qualifying state cup. Teams can decline the invite just as they can in USYS.

I am surprised that no one has brought up the elevation-issue of Aurora, Colorado. Its 5,407′, and believe you me, all of the east coast girls are going to struggle, and that is putting it nicely. Most will be sick, and will be able to run for 15 minutes before they begin to gag. I wish them all good luck, but there is no way to train for that at sea-level.

Combined with the no re-entry sub rules.

Teams with thin rosters that have never played at that elevation will struggle

Anonymous said...

So how does the thinner air affect the flight of the ball? Will the East coast girls be able to kick longer balls because they are used to thicker air?

Unlimited substitutions and unlimited re entry. The girls will struggle with the elevation. The ball should sail thru the thin air making a lot of teams prob play lots of long balls.

11:48 then Wildcats and PDA South will struggle. Neither has many on the bench (2-3 maybe?) when I saw them play each other in state cup final. Unless they have injured players now returning? Thin air and no subs will definitely be a challenge. Hopefully they both take advantage of the 3 guest player rule. Otherwise it will be a long trip.

Have you seen Massapequa, FCV United or the defending champion NEFC play this year?

I think NEFC repeats unless the altitude slows them down based on their youth Soccer rankings score

The teams can use their club pass or from the rules page "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"

I have heard rumors that there are other alliances being worked on.

Anonymous said...

This group will be providing 276 full scholarships with a total of $1.49 million of scholarship funds being contributed.

Approx 11 per team -and you thought the days of large rosters are done they have tested it and found that they can generate enough money for their starting players.

The program will feature three combined age groups: U-14/15, U-16/17 and U-18/19. Clubs will be expected to train a minimum of four times a week. The use of combined age groups will require clubs toform teams with a balanced roster of players from two distinct birth years. The games will be scouted by U.S. Soccer and the program will serve as the primary pathway to the youth national teams.

In addition to combining the most elite players from each birth year to form the mixed age group player pool, coaches will be encouraged to play their players “up” on an older age team within the club to help accelerate development.

The competitive framework will focus on the core values of the program, which emphasizes quality coaching and teaching in a positive learning environment for players with zero tolerance for poor behavior from coaches.
