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.

So in the last 3 months the Breakers have beaten: NJX 3-0, Ajax 2-1 and MF Black 4-3. To complete the NJ big four sweep, they just have Storm left end of Oct.

6:43, are you from Mass? If not, you should STFU, they are a great team, and would probably destroy your daughters team.

@1235....."Ajax was consolation game. wildcats played their subs whole game after jumping on top 1-0 early over ajax.
You are too clueless to even understand what happened in that game."

& likewise you are too clueless to even understand how you beat PDA Storm last Spring in a meaningless EDP game where the D stands for DEVELOPMENT. read earlier post on selective memory. Good luck in State Cup, enjoy the ride while it lasts buddy.

"All those knocking Match Fit....."

Bro - you just need to know which posts are total rubbish. Need to reason it out.

7:00 so what you are saying is that your current league games are meaningless or is it just when you lose

Crush is always favored to win by someone, they just never do.

Yeah, funny how they have won so much without winning so much (NPL, tourneys.....)

When pda loses a league game it's meaningless and about development.
When pda wins a consolation game it's meaningful. Get it?

Breakers are a decent team during their league games. When they go to tournaments they turn it up and bring their guests. Different team in tournaments folks.

Anonymous said...

Not sure Breakers are still getting the South Shore Elite guests

Last year that really made them a super team.

Anonymous said...

Breakers not the same w/o guests from South Shore.

Anonymous said...

...and if the Wildcats would have somehow won the "consolation game" they would be on here talking it up like it was their second World Cup win (just like they did their first WorldCup win against Storm last year). The inconsistency is very consistent.

Anonymous said...

Indeed.

But we all know Ajax is the up and comer in the division, along with STA.

Wildcats took a step up and now will plateau a bit.

Anonymous said...

Im sure every PDA parent wishes there kid was good enough to play for wildcats.

Doesn't sound right does it?


Now if I said, I'm sure every wildcat parent wishes their kid could make the PDA Storm and play in the ECNL.

That sounds to be a little more true.

Case is pretty much closed from there.

Good luck wildcats hope you win lotsa tournaments.

Anonymous said...

Wildcats parent can probably tell us how many attendees to their tryout were not asked back.

Probably close to numbers for other teams.

Fyi South Shore players are now Breakers players since FC Stars tournament.

Nah - impossible that the South Shore club would disband.

Did not disband, top 3 players at Breakers

It appears at least Massachusetts gets it right

Can NJ follow suit and combine teams for a super team ?

12:35- Wildcat Coach, I enjoy your rants but your memory is a little clouded.

U12 Fall
PDA Storm knocks you out of State Cup
PDA Ajax wins your EDP division

U12 Spring
PDA Tournament- PDA Ajax won your bracket
PDA Storm wins your EDP division

To be fair, you did beat the PDA Dragons 1-0 in the semis of that EXCLUSIVE, high level, MF Tournament in June.

Any reason IGFA has yet to play an EDP game? Besides losing their top player? Curious what is going on there, i haven't seen them in a tournament or game since the spring season,

And SDFC Samba played Crush Tsunami White to a 0-0 tie in a friendly saturday fwiw

He is a little bitter, to each their own, whatever, loser.

We have player Crush(A) and they are pretty good, some very fast backs on that team, not too much scoring punch, solid GK, mid-field needs work, and to be honest, most teams lack creative, and skilled midfielders, its a key to dominating possession, we look forward to playing them again.

And goodwill to all...

Did both Matchfleece squads get bounced from the "weak" state cup already?

Anonymous said...

8:34- Yes, both out in first round.

Serious question, Does every MF team pay the same, or is it more expensive depending on which team/league you play in?

8:18 Great job, thanks.

Anonymous said...

How is top 3 players going from S Shore different than 3 very good players going to PDA's first team and one to Match Fit's best (from non ECNL teams)?

Seems NJ IS on par with Massachussetts in that respect

Anonymous said...

By the way - I am sure the terminology "top 3 players" is overused in this case

South Shore wont be heard from on this but most teams at this age do not have such a defined order of ability.

Anonymous said...


Must be all that good development they are getting at MF

I guess it is just easier picking players to come into the program instead

Anonymous said...

All of the older and younger PDA teams do just fine against the mass teams and this age group will as well.
PDA and NJ have always been ranked higher than all of their clubs. Stay tuned... What we really need is for MF and WCFC to get stronger and better consistency accross age groups. I believe this will happen over next few years.
WCFC should start getting the strong kids from the north and MF should be able to keep some kids from driving past them to PDA. Two of PDA s national team girls live in MF backyard. MF did fine yesterday, a 4 - 3 game could easily go the either way.

Anonymous said...

Looks as if DOC of MF has been telling lies to his U14 Ecnl team. Wonder what the truth is that he tells his U13 pre-ecnl and npl teams. Next year will be interesting to see what happens to those teams.

Anonymous said...

9:10pm yes you got it right.
We all dream about joining your 25 player roster and waiting our turn to not dress and pay for plane flights to out of state tournaments our kids don't always dress for much less play.
No thanks, my kid plays most of every game and our training and development is great. We compete very well with the pre-ecnl and ne pnl teams on the field.Also don't see anything in NE NPL League scores either to tell me that competition is any stronger top to bottom than our league.
Mostly 6-0 and 6-1 scores for nj NE NPL Teams so far other than when they play each other.
At least we still go to all the competitive tournaments.
And I am happy we still play state cup as well.

Anonymous said...

Yes, 12:03 but the college coaches wont come to see your daughter




heh..........(just kidding, of course)

Anonymous said...

The Match Fleece situation is a no brainer:

1. Falcons are and will be the ECNL team. MF will do ANYTHING to get 4 NJX players to join that team. There will be a bidding war between PDA and MF.

2. MF/NJX will back fill with new kids at tryouts looking to play in the NE NPL.

No matter what, the NJX team as we know it will be over. I will never understand why they agreed to this. They could have been a great team that played top tournaments based on their GS points.

They have been PDA Storms only consistent equal and threat.

12:03- What is your league and what teams are in it?

Thanks

12:17 you will never get an honest answer to that question.

12:17 Calvert Crew is in our league and is very tough.
We have tied them 1-1 both games in last year.
Also Sta is much improved and a few other teams there that we haven't seen before.
the difference for me is NE NPL clubs are telling their parents they no longer need to go to WAGS and these other tournaments becasue of the tough comp in their leagues.
I don't see that for either of us so I am glad to be with a team that is still going to WAGS, Bethesda, etc. and challenging to the girls outside opf our league aned outside of teams from nj, ny, and mass.
many good teams in Virginia, PA, Ohio,Ilinois, etc that we will be playing in WAGS and Bethesda that won't be in NE NPL or EDL/EDP Leagues.

Hey 12;03

2 Deportivo
8 Real Madrid

0 Levante
5 Barcelona

Does La Liga stink as a league or are Real Madrid and Barcelona that good?

What makes you think Northeast NPL is so weak? Maybe the NJ teams are strong - and probably would have a winning record vs most "A" teams?

Besides, this is the first year this age group can play for a national title. Do you really believe playing in Events that you have no idea who you will be playing will stay ahead of the leagues that can offer a race to a National Title?

I don't - I believe many girls will tryout for ECNL clubs at u14 and not all of them will make the clubs and with NPL as a legit option, you never know. I'm not talking the NJ teams they are already strong making one these rosters will be very difficult unless your kid can play very fast and has technical ability.

Anonymous said...

What makes you think they tell them that. You forget one very important bit of information my friend about these clubs.

1. They have an overnight weekend in MA
2. They have an overnight weekend in CT

Now you want them going to WAGS, JEFFERSON anywhere else?

PS. Don't forget Storm already went to Chicago and is schedule to play in the ECNL Jr event is SC just look at the ECNL website

I bet you are the first one that throws out how expensive travel is gas and Overnight stays? But yet you call these teams out for not going to WAGS.

if Match Fit and PDA wish to fight over the NJX talent they may be getting just what is needed - a run of poor results from NJX

If NJX rights itself and gets back to winning ways they could very well stay intact for 2015-16

Anonymous said...

Poor results??? LOL
Please tell us all which teams have been been more successful in NJ big guy?

When I look at what the top teams have done from NJ, I see nothing special. The same results from out of State and see some quality wins against each other in NJ. Beaides that, NJX has been a steady team and have been more successful than any other team in NJ besides the Storm.

Can they leave MF and go back to being NJX ?

Do they have to wait till end of July/ Aug. like carding process or can they tell MF we are gone at any time if they wanted to leave?

It sounds like they would be better off like they were and maybe add a strong player or two and they are right back to where they were

Anonymous said...

12:43- Exactly right. It shocks me a coach actually comes out here and begs for attention.

1:21- NJX is dead. This ship started taking water on 3 years ago. It was a great team that did some great things.

Anonymous said...

12:22 Calvert Crew? Really? Didn't the MF Jaguars just lose 1-0 to them? The same MF Jaguars that lost to Manalapan in the first round of SC again.

They are good because you tied them? Does that make Boca an elite team?

Focus on SC. I hope you win, I can't wait to hear about each game and the fact you are playing in the Nationals.

Remember last year how you were so excited to play in the EDP Championship Cup, that didn't exist.

If the lopsided NE NPL results for nj teams are because the nj teams are "so strong" and not due to weak competition, then why haven't these same nj teams from ne npl(ajax, dragons, celtic) had similarly lopsided results in their favor in top flight tournaments recently.
They certainly weren't winning 6-0 or 6-1 in top flights at FC Delco or Jeff Cup in the spring. Yet they claim they will have such strong comp in ne npl that they no longer need these top flight tournaments.
Plus you can reach the same national npl title from either ne npl or edl/edp so you are on wrong track there as well. point is other than pre-ecnl none of these leagues offer much comp top to bottom for top flight nj teams. Most of the teams in ne nopl are true B teams and a full level below the pre -ecnl teams in their club.
the difference is much less in nj as we know..

Anonymous said...

12:12 so according to your elite nj logic we in Pennsylvania will never have our daughters seen by college coaches?
funny you see so many Pa players in top D1 programs if you were correct.
The college coaches KNOW about every club player who can help their program at the next level.
many ways to get to D1.
Just train hard and enter all the ID Programs, especially know that so many are out there and some are free through edp/npl/US soccer etc.

Hey 1:38 EDP Champions Cup from top 4 spring finishers is being played this fall and is on the EDL/EDP schedule.

Ok I will provide some insight

First: Yes I am a parent on the MF NPL team. I honestly at times find my self routing for the opposing teams rather than our Pre ECNL team. Why? I guess in my mind if this team struggles then there is a great chance that our team will be become the Pre ECNL team next year.

I am seeing how everything works, the better players will be moved over to the ECNL team next year while the players struggling will be moved down.

Yesterday, I watched the between MF vs Breakers.

It was a great game, exciting. Back and back. MF conceded a goal 1st when the defender had every opportunity to clear the ball but for some reason froze. Trapped it, Breakers players just poked it in. MF came back and scored on a corner kick. Unsure if ball was deflected off striker or was an own goal. MF controlled play for most of 1st half, I believe they had 8 corner kicks in first half. Breakers scored another goal, in my opinion girl was off sides by 2 steps (sitting right in front of play) referee's did not call this, Breakers scored to go up 2-1. Match Fit came back on a great goal from 20 yards out to tie 2-2.

2nd Half, Breakers 2 strikers started to take control. What speed the one player has. Advantage to Breakers in the first 10-15 minutes was about 60-40. After this MF had control of play 60-40 causing several more Corner kick chances. One of those corner kicks, the ball came out to about 20 yard line, MF player tried to play the ball out wide that ended up being intercepted by Breakers player who quickly go the ball up to Striker. Striker received ball and WOW was she off to the races. Made a great move around goalie to score. Next goal, Match Fit was applying pressure, Breakers were able to clear a long ball to who else the striker. One of the CB chased her down (MF CB where tall as well, thought they did a great job) CB had her pinned in corner, waiting for help from teammates which never came. Breaker striker took advantage, she was able to get around defender, feed a ball to middle for a goal. Leading 4-2, MF applied heavy pressure again, Scoring right away to make it 4-3, MF had many chances to tie the game. MF forced another corner kick and missed a great header that just went wide to end the game.

I provided this for all, Yes I do feel bad routing against this team, I do feel I have to give them the credit for an exciting game. BTW I am not the only parent that feels this way.

However, after seeing this team play some great teams this past weekend. I do feel this team has better all around players while playing a very nice style. Can our players help them out, ABSOLUTELY. This is what I am looking forward to.

I am not looking to go to PDA, my kid has established herself here and I truly believe this team will be a major force in the upcoming years.

They did scrimmage, at try outs. North team couldn't hold the South teams bra straps. Bigger, faster and stronger.
From what I am hearing, NJX parents were not impressed with the North team these past weekends of watching the well hyped MF pre ECNL team. So I think there is a fraudster on this blog.

Don't know any parent who would say I can't wait to join your team! Comical.

Match fleece? Hey coach wildcat who's a bigger fleecer than you? You don't cash checks like PDA. You go cash only. If you don't want to get ripped on here stay off the blog. Spend more time on coaching and maybe you'll find a way to stop causing your talented team to spit the bit in the biggest spots of the biggest games. If you didn't care about Ajax game why were you screaming your head off and why did some of your bench players sit so long? C'mon fella stop with the bull. FPG

Looks like NPL might have changed the max goal differential to +5. Some final scores have been adjusted.

Not changed, that a was the original rule. Not sure why the scores were posted with greater than 5.

Matchfit dad... Stop talking trash on here, be a man and step up and take care of the situation with your kid. Don't come on here and bad mouth like a Coward! If you don't like what's going on, LEAVE!!! It's that simple...

Anonymous said...

Yes they did. NPL is like MOSA. A recreation league holding back scores or not letting our kids get the recognition for scoring. That is what the game is based on. You do not see other sports shaving down the scores and taking away points. America has it all wrong. Especially at this age. It's time to start playing the game for what it's worth.

Cry babies, instigators and liars. We will never be able to get rid of them. I don't understand why people who are not happy, don't leave and move on. I would.
Especially if I wanted to be part of another team.

Anonymous said...

They haven't updated the rules page yet to add the cap. I hope they get rid of #4, not fair with a cap.

1. Most Points
2. head 2 head for 2 teams only
3. Goal Differential.
4. Goals For
5. Goals Against.

If you cap goals you can't use Goals For ahead of Goals against.

Look at Breakers they won 11-0 got dropped to 5-0.

However, EM Meadow had 8 goals count because FC Bucks scored 4. Something wrong with this picture.

Goals Against is always the better stat. Teams can not run up a Shutout a shutout is the same when the score is 0-0, 0-1 or 0-11.

Anonymous said...

I agree Capping the score tells a lot about your league in the wrong way. Bad Move, oh well such is life. Give in to the cry babies. Oh they beat our team 11-0. Get better or find a league at your level. Shame.

I guess they support that family in Texas that brought legal action against a coach for winning by a big score.

I guess the wuestion is what do Falcons parents do if their daughter loses most of her playing time to someone from NJX

Plenty of options. I dont think a former Falcon would appreciate playing with Jaguars (the new Black team). TSF might get stronger ......

Anonymous said...

.Well if the falcons play 5 or 6 players the entire game and they get 5 from the b team npl that play the entire game then you will be looking at a powerhouse. No need for bench players. Let those parents battle it out. DOC stated there are no plans to move the ecnl up north. So he left it as a open ended statement

I agree, the MF ECNL team next year should only have 11 girls, no-subs, no problems, why is that hard to grasp?

Anonymous said...

What am I missing here,

If ECNL team is going to be in Denville, then why would NJX kids drive past PDA ECNL to go to play with Matchfit ECNL team?

Are they anti PDA?

If team is in Denville, then doesn't that change the whole equation for NJX kids. Wouldn't this mean that the better players would have options (assuming they make both teams)

Why chose Matchfit over PDA?

I am having problems following the logic of why these players would automatically go to Matchfit.


I see them more as free agents.

I doubt these parents/kids would choose a non ecnl team. In that case, might as well stay stay where they are unless the team is disbanded next year.
Next level of player on that team might choose other clubs like wildcats or PDA Shore.


First level of kids will have more options.

Location take into account of player

If not on ECNL is that same club NPL or 2nd team better than one of the other Clubs NPL? If it is not makes sense to go.

Then the regular factors to consider

Coach, training, facilities, which team the player thinks is the best fit for her

Anonymous said...

Many options for kids.

If held up North, PDA north players would look to try out as well.

Personally, if NJX players decide and make ECNL team. Would be some kind of work around for all players to rotate locations.

I am a NJX parent, not a BLACK parent. YOu know who I am as well.

Not that I have any clue who you are or if you are a NJX parent, but if you are how disgruntled are people within the group?

Sounds like a few are ready to leave for ECNL whether it be MF or PDA.

Things are fine ?
Total mess ?

my daughter could make and start on any of the ecnl teams but chooses not to.
She will have all the exposure she needs through ID camps which she currently has gotten invitations to 3. We opted out of ODP since its costly and the others hold the same elements and is free. Being free tells me they are truly looking for talent and not player pools of 50, 60, 70 players each paying to train and be evaluated.
She plays on a non ecnl team that plays all npl and ecnl teams in tournaments so whats the big deal about being on ecnl
I really don't see how that gives every player on ecnl an advantage.
If a player is good, they are already known and being discussed in the right circles.
Can every player on ecnl say the same?

If you daughter is a great player then she is already being discussed as you stated.

EcNL is for a gathering of like minded committed players. Not all teams give you that. At best, you have half the team doing extra work and the half off to another sport.

" No. EVERY player on ECNL is not good."

This a very true statement!

11:40 These players get weeded out over time as players like your daughter come into the ECNL teams to play with like minded talent.

If you happen to be on a team where you have a great coach and players that are on the same page with regards to commitment to the sport ,then ok to stay where you are. Also know that the ID of different leagues vary significantly. I put ODP at the bottom and EcNL ID process at the top. Tip programs are good because they are free but overall the competition is going to be a lot higher to be part of ID program in the ECNL because of the eventual gathering of like minded players in this league.

As a parent-Its your call.

pda team/parents are not "all happy" to be at pda.
Experiencing the expanded rosters put in place by pda this year at all levels and teams is creating major blow back and unhappiness that will only increase over time as reality of this new situation, especially for players 14-25 starts to sink in and they are intermittently left out of participating in events and still asked to pay full freight.

1:01 Correct, unless I missed one.

1:34 You know better than me - I guess it comes down to three school's of thought.

1. My daughter is 12/13 years old and I want her playing a lot I don't care what team she is on. My daughter is more important than the team

2. My daughter is good and she is raw still has room to grow, I think it might be worth it to stick around and she learns different rolls from not dressing to entering a rotation to possibly starting.

3. Not Applicable - my kid plays significant minutes on this team and i don't see her losing any minutes so life is good.

As a previous poster said - it is your decision.

I just say keep it positive and lets continue to grow this beautiful sport for our girls

Could not have said it better, 2:01.

Anonymous said...

2:30 even if they do so what.

If that makes them feel better about themselves so be it. Why do you care? Don't you know your kid and what is best for them.

Do we want them playing on the best team, who doesn't. I just want my kid playing for a club that cares about their kids and provides opportunities for all the kids not just the "A" team.

People knock NorthEast NPL, why because some teams are better than others? You need to play the game and be better than others to advance and when a league provides an opportunity to experience a National Title EVENT - knock it all you want - I want my kid on a team in a league like that.

We have teams from Region 1 of different levels playing for the same goal a trip to the National Event.

NEFC, Oakwood, Seacoast, Bayside (MA,CT, NH, RI)
NYSC, STA, NJ Crush, ISA (NY & NJ)
NJ Wildcats, LVU, TSF (NJ, PA)
MF, PDA twice, PennFusion (NJ, PA)
Plus the VA teams - I am not familiar with them yet.

These are just a few of these teams that will battle their division for a place at a national Event - Some play 22 games others 14 and some 5 in the end it all leads them to the same place. A National Title.

Same chase that the ECNL teams have - win win and win some more to place 1st in Division or secure a wildcard spot to play in the National Event.

This is a good thing - will cost some $$$$ with overnights and on top of all this fun these teams will still do some high end Tournaments like Spirit, FC Stars, WAGS, Discover, Jefferson, Delco to play some other teams not in NPL or ECNL.

This is a great thing. So if you team plays in EDP, JAGS, PAGS, LIJSL and Region 1 Leagues nothing wrong with that. There will be plenty of number 1 teams and that's okay - We don't need one number one do we at this age?

To some of the lunatics that post here:

Do you ever ask your daughter if she is having fun? Or are you just trying to relive your "glory" days?

I ask that not to bash but to bring a dose a reality to this blog.

The chances of your daughter getting a scholarship is about 2% or 1 out of 50 or in 11v11 terms(.22players) and even less for a full ride.

Now take those odds(1/50) and ask yourself of that 2% chance how likely will it be to a college you actually want your daugher to go to? Ummm...slim

Those that think otherwise either have a daughter who is either lights out amazing(kudos) and aren't even paying the clubs to play for them or are the lemmings subsidizing those players.

Paying the $2-3k for the experience to play at a higher level is one thing, thinking it's anything more than that for most is delusional. If you're daughter is not playing enough or a "training" player on a 20+ player roster you're being swindled, move on from the pre-ecnl, ecnl or odp blah blah and watch her play somewhere else and enjoy it.

Enjoy these years, they are only 13 once.

8:24 congrats that is one of the most intelligent and insightful posts I have seen in a long time. Best point you made is if you are one of the bubble players say 14-25 on these expanded rosters than you are really not nearly good enough to seriously compete for significant playing time on that team and should move to a team where your daughter can dress and play each game, enjoy the experience, gain confidence in herself and her soccer ability and still develop with a program that has good training and plays good competition. Lemmings being swindled.
You really are spot on with that one!

The best place to go to be seen by college coaches. Not the best way to get a scholarship. Two very different things. I don't see anyone on here crowing about how ECNL is going to get their daughter a scholarship.

And as for the getting seen by college coaches part, there is that article that includes a breakdown of where college-committed players played during their club years. Strangely, while the article clearly states "non-ECNL players play in college, too", the argument being used to attack the article and it's premise is "non-ECNL players play in college, too".

10:43 A 13 player roster is the opposite extreme of 20+, the right number is 16-18. Anything more is just the club lining their pockets. They are running a business.

I give a lot of credit to the girls who get left off of the roster, but continue to work hard in every practice. I wouldn't want my kid to go through that though. I would likely move her. I think for players 12-18 it could be a valuable life lesson. Work hard, earn playing time etc. For players 18-23? Work hard and earn a chance to sit on the bench? Maybe get 7 minutes of playing time?
I just don't see the point in doing that to a kid.

On the PDA and Matchfit ECNL teams there is a significant drop off in talent after player 14.

If a player is good enough to be a starter on and a contributor on another high level team, they simply will not stay. The level of talent is vastly different from player 1-7 to player 15-24. You will find that players 15 -24 are replaced quite frequently on these teams as the better players in this grouping get smart and moves on to a starting position at either another ECNL team or a team that plays in the Nationals.

Really good players do not stay. They seek their own starting position somewhere else.

This is the dirty little secret that no one has touched upon.

After player 14 or 15. It can be a revolving door.

Anonymous said...

As been stated several times, PDA not for everybody.

-Most players were the best on their teams.
-Have to COMPETE against 60-70 players at tryouts
-If invited to a team, you now need to COMPETE every week for playing time.

When things get tough you can dig in and fight or take flight. As a parent of a 13-18 player I couldn't be prouder. She works hard every practice, makes the most of her 15 to 20 minutes of playing time, and gets so excited for her teammates that are playing.

The best goal she ever scored was for her new team. It was a "meaningless goal', with her team already up 4. Her teammates swarmed her and she felt like she just won the World Cup. It was the best 2 hour car ride home we ever had.

I get they are young they should play side of things.

So what will they do when they go to school and roster size is well beyond 18. They can't look for a school with a roster of 1-18 (that doesn't exist). Will they leave or stop playing if they don't dress? That's the example they are learning. Why fight to play when you can just quite and move to another team. Guess what that doesn't exist so maybe that's why so many of these players quite the sport as they get older. Less teams more girls fighting for less spots. Who has the advantage?

The 13 year old who never had to fight for anything and just had it handed to her.

or the 13 year old kids that are pushed every day to play their minutes. I don't think they will be phased when it comes to playing for a school, they have fought their youth soccer career to stay on the field and contribute to a team - they don't know the meaning of give up or move to a place where it's easier.

I think the situation depends on the kid and the family will always do the right thing for the kid. The END.

Just for the record all these kids on the roster 1-26 would be starters for sure on other teams. So what drop off are you talking about.

Sure when you put 26 very talented kids on the same team - it's no longer about talent - it's about what makes the kid want to play soccer and how far are they willing to go before they say I just don't want it this bad.

How many clubs have a policy that does not allow coaches to train their own players outside of the team for $$?

Curious what people's thoughts are. I see a potentially problematic conflict of interest.

QUIT not Quite

You have valid points. The same thing happens in College. This is why, so many female players stop playing and lose interest after their sophmore years.

lol..your daughter's team is so good that all 26 would be starters everywhere else. Is she ALex Morgan?

12:44 not the point - but if they were good enough to be #26 on an ECNL program (MF or PDA) they can play and start for any top team in NJ.

Yes I am saying if MF or PDA pooled all their players into one team that had 26 players #26 would be a starter on any team in NJ.

Hypothetical question: If yuour daughter has medium speed, do you think working with a fitness coach/speed trainer/agility trainer is worth it? I always thought you couldn't teach speed.

It sure can't hurt

You should go and have her do and if there is even a bit of improvement then it was worth it.

Each kid is different

Improving her technique in running is a positive that might help her overall speed

Every kid at this age group has a choice choice choice right now.

But its up to the parents to talk to them about what CHOICE they want to make and if there are happy.

Just for the record 12:28 is delusional as is the coach who is answering his own emails.

& that individual desperately wants to & needs to replace half his starters so he comes here creating a stir, throwing out all sorts of garbage in a futile attempt to attract players/families. Pathetic.
