11:52- Are you subject to random drug testing?Are you saying that MF has quality players on 3 MF teams at this age? To be fair, I have not seen the new MF Blue team play. Is that the third team you are referring to?
None of these seem appealing to someone at that level.October 22, 2014 at 11:09 AM"At what level? If your daughter is in the bottom 4 players of say PDA/MF top team and not playing, but you do not want them to play on the teams people suggested to you (Wildcats, B teams, ect), then you have to take a step back and get a reality check. If your daughter is not playing on the "A" team, she is not good enough to be there. The next options might be her skill level. Say when you say "those clubs are not appealing", are you saying your daughter is better than that? WOW
Players that have started and taken on significant roles with their last team, Wildcats, Sta , etc. find themselves getting less playing time at PDA.They left for a better situation- i don't think they want to go back after to the situation that they wanted to escape from in the first place.
Blue is the 4th team at Match Fit
If you are not getting adequate time on the top team make sure you don't drop down to a lower level team that has roster of more than 18.makes no sense at all, especially at 2nd level team in club.
11:52 I hope so but I don't think so. everything I've seen tells me that Match fit at this age group will be chasing PDA , just like all the other age groups.It will not be different at this age group.
12:50 not sure they would all be welcomed back anyway.
12:59 Is your assumption that the player not getting adequate time on a Pre-ECNL team would not get adequate time on an NPL team? If the player was good enough to make ECNL team playing time will not be an issue regardless of the roster size. Players that can ball don't get bad overnight. I think the increased roster size is to take on players of equal ability to the players at the bottom of the rotation instead of cutting the existing players. These girls will fight for minutes and to be on the roster next year. How are you seeing this any other way? Yes, there will also be some increased revenue. So be it.
As long as parents will pay, then the rosters will never again shrink to 18.All above 15 or 16 on roster will play only in events like EDP Cup which will be entered as was the case last week to give them a bone/playing time in a throwaway event.
Haha PDA Storm excuse
I would say best option in North if not Storm or MF Black would be STA. My daughters team has played them and they seem to have solid team.They also have good coach and good facilities. I'm sure cost is in line with all the other teams.
Does PDA roster really consist of 25 spots???
I would agree with 11:49 but I would take off NJSCA. Not a stable situation. Also, I would say that coaching will most likely be consistant on the NPL teams of PDA and MF. They have a reputation to uphold.
11:52, PDA has the top NPL program with PDA South (AJAX) and PDA North (Dragons). Why would anyone leave these teams to go to a potential dysfunctional MF situation that is brewing over who is the ECNL team? What 3 teams at MF are better than those 2 PDA teams?
1:23 PM is the most transparent pathetic thing ever. Can't score a goal on STA
To soccer nut: appreciate your well thought out comments , but again I have to ask about the value placed on who is coaching. I've seen people make a decision with this as a big factor only for that coach to then not be there.
How does a player get more playing time? Play better than others of course but if you aren't playing much to begin with, that's hard to do. Do you think coaches notice showing up on time not missing practices, going all out in practice etc and reward this with playing time ? Or is it just the better players play and that's life ?
What is typical roster size for this age ?
MF will mix to get best kids on the field next year for ECNL. Current pre ECNL and NE NPL are better that STA, Ajax and Dragons and play Storm very equally most games. Just think about putting those girls together as PDA has already done for ECNL. Will be fun to watch. STA needs to step it back a bit... Need more substantial results. Turning in to Wildcats....
Roster size is 18 for my daughter's team (ECNL, PA).
MF...who is the ECNL team?Let's seeeeeee nowww......The pre ECNL kind of gives this away
There were murmurs over the summer that STA had a special player joining their ranksThis was already a very solid team.Very dangerousI will call the upset for Saturday vs Wildcats
Beating them would be one of those results needed to say you are improving.
3:01, Last time I checked PDA North and MF NPL had a score of 0-0 this fall. And the Storm has two teams to draw from. MF only has 1. Imagine that team if Stirn can choose from 40 new girls.
Central Jersey? Look at Boca. Great coaching, limited B.S. a team on the verge.
I would say STA has improved, yes they need more wins against the top tier teams, Their results at EDP Cup says a lot plus a win against WC/NJCSA is a good start.They have lost to Wildcats twice and Calvert.Think they just need more offense and depth.Seems they are the team that the saying "any given day" holds true could be a good win or a bad loss
I thought Boca was in Florida?
3:00PM "What is typical roster size for this age ?" 8.5" x 11" same as other ages
That was almost clever, and funny, ah what the heck, I will give it to you, hahaha.
STA dominated Jaguars, beat NJCSA Galaxy and dispatched World Class pre ECNL in late August event for a key boost - up to 4th in state - and deservedly so.Forward to EDP Cup, where they tie PDA ECNL and defeat BOTH FSA teams. Loss 1-0 to NYE up and comer Atletico a tough blemish that kept STA from the title
STA - 14 goals allowed in 19 games since late August
STA Dominated Jaguars?Possession was in favor of Black team, both teams created scoring chances.Your team was leading 2-1, until late when coach pushed players up to try to tie game. Missed on several chances, STA you scored on a late goal to win 3-1. Domination? Nice try. Teams were very even, Black controlled ball compared to your STA teamhow does it feel to loose in possession to a 3rd team of Match Fit? Yes you won barely, plus this is your A Team. Ouch!
@2:56Usually you can find coach and organization together. They are not mutually exclusive.In my experience if a great coach leaves for another position, the parent may have the option to stay with that coach and continue training or stay with the organization. But your initial choice, should be about who is coaching your daughter, not blindly pick an organization. I cannot count the number of times an organization will fill a younger team with a new coach trying to follow the club script.Buyer should always beware.If your coach leaves a great organization and is replaced with a less desirable coach then find another great organization with a better coach.
Soccer Nut ^^^^
Best in that situation if you keep lines of communication open with teammatesThen you can decide, knowing which players are staying/going.Might be better to stay without the coach.With the best clubs you would already know the new coach anyway.
Jaguars is NEVER getting 2 on that STA team, so once you surrendered 2 you were done.Original post not from STA. Learn how to talk about the division, not just your team.
Stay humble on the way up, Jags.Give respect to get
On the way up? Jaguars have won 3 of their last 25 games, per gotsoccer
No where to go but up
Funny that this team is even being discussed.Nothing against the girls - but they are so often overmatched. May be better served dropping down in competition level.Tough though - what do you do, say "we know we are Match Fit but that doesnt mean we should be in a top flight?"
Yes,,that is exactly what you say so you play competitive matches.
It is good to lose some matches but 22 out of 25 is no fun at all. Drop down.
Hey @320, I agree but why would you call STA beating Wildcats an upset? With all due respect to Wildcats, a STA win on Saturday would not surprise me in the least. In fact I am expecting it. Is there something wrong with that?
BOCA, you have a great chance - if you get placed in the top flight. 3 Strong GS teams should bring lots of points to this end of season affair. Have your girls prove they belong with the top at this event - if MAPS sees them as a top flight team.Americans RebelsDMS Soccer Academy GU13Edison United SA Lightning BoltsGreater Binghamton FC 01 SelectHarford FC United ThunderHarleysville HFC Ready '01Jersey Premier Soccer FlashJersey Shore Boca Jr FC FusionLower Merion SC HerricanesMedford Strikers SC SoulMercer FC SpursNew Jersey Rush 01 Girls BlueNJ Crush FC Tsunami WhitePA Crew Academy BlueSTA Morris United 01

10:55- LOLState Cup Final Four looks like some great games. I think both games are evenly matched. I am glad the ECNL and NPL teams did not enter this Fall. Storm and NJX have dominated the Cup since U10. Good luck and enjoy the weekend.

First FALL Final 4 for CrushThey were finalists spring 2013
Not sure we ever had a spring or fall CUP where every team entered.
10:13 They were not NCS Finalist. They were Nj Cup finalist. Two different events.10:20 Doesn't matter if every team enters or not that's their choice. With or without them the show must go on.
Only Rage, Storm & NJX made the finals of both events in the same year. STA also made the final 4 in both events in the same year. No other team has. That could be because they didn't enter (their choice, their loss) or it could mean that they didn't qualify.
Now for a little NYE HistoryNYE has been the Hicksville aka EM domination Cups.They Own 1 NCS Cup and 2 NY State Cups.Sachem reached Finals of the last 2 NCS CupsWhile NYSC won the 2014 NY Cup the only one the Hotshotz did not.NYE NCS Champions20141 Sachem Speed 0 HBC Barracudas20135 Hicksville: Hotshotz 0 Sachem: Speed20121 SO.

I did not list final 4s becasue NCS Cup only had Final scores archived. Not fair to list one and not the other so I didn't list any.
US CLUB Cup StatesFlorida Cup Hawaii State Cup Illinois State Cup Indiana Cup Minnesota US Club Cup New Jersey Cup New York Cup NorCal State Cup Ohio State Cup Washington CupEM the only NJ/NYE team to win the double.EM the PDA of NYE for this age group. They play in as many leagues, state cups,tournaments that they can to get their kids ton of games and soccer IQ, one can't argue with the success they have had thus far with this approach including Pre-ECNL league
EM is a very, very nice teamThe CLUB is having some troubles ($$)
EM is under siege right now, and I would not be surprised if coach D. Tried to move the entire team over to Albertson, since their older ECNL teams are floundering, and the Hotshotz are a legit group, that might bring some glory back to the big A.
Under siege by whom?
Why did they join Em in the first place?
I have no idea, perhaps to play in ECNL, they were at Hicksville, which is a town team. Maybe they offered them some kind of sweet deal, who knows?
Albertson doesn't usually take in full teams with a coach. They are building their own ecnl team. East Meadow was willing to take he whole team and the coach. I doubt they will leave. It's ecnl. They are doing well. It's close to Hicksville, where they all came from. Who cares about the rest of the club.
Some clubs are every team for themselves and some spend some effort at club building / age group building. The latter is a much better environment overall.
Albertson is a $$$$ making machine from what I have heard. They seem to be able to survive with or without glory for their older age groups.
@2:10 True, but neither LI club is really into building and training.
Sounds like a job for Steven Seagal
BOCA is good up and coming, good trainers and coach. Trainer is college coach, they just won Silver at EDP cup, pretty easily, now go with big girls and pull pants up and lets see what happens.
Such a shame, between Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk they should have been able to build 3 to 4 Strong clubs. No excuses with the numbers they have in regards to latinos and euros it should have been an easy build. EM having issues explains why no NPL teams this year. SO the big question is what does ECNL do with them? DO they Virginia Rush them and kick them out of ECNL or do they merge with another Club to stay in ECNL like Soccer + and FSA?
Did BOCA apply to Both MAPS events?Or did they apply to Challenge first and then split for MAPS Cup because they think some easy points to be had?Top 11 GS teams are:3 of them will be 2nd Flight for sure and I'm sure MAPS will be looking to add one more team to the 15 that have applied if no other teams applies.Not a bad little EVENT. 19 Greater Binghamton FC 01 Select57 Harford FC United Thunder70 PA Crew Academy Blue114 Jersey Premier Soccer Flash155 Mercer FC Spurs228 New Jersey Rush 01 Girls Blue271 Jersey Shore Boca Jr FC Fusion298 STA Morris United 01307 Harleysville FC Ready '01379 DMS Soccer Academy GU13432 NJ Crush FC Tsunami White
I think part of issue is priorities. Nassau has sky high school taxes and great schools. Many girls are ultimately headed for grad school and focused more on academics than d1.They love their soccer but to a point.
Priorities means parents' priorities. They are only willing to put up with so much BS for daughter to play soccer at certain club.
@3:24 BOCA has been applied to both tournaments for quite sometime now. Doesn't look like they are "splitting". My guess is after the wins that came so easy at the EDP Cup, they are looking to move up and be challenged with some of the better teams. Let's see if they get the top flights after moving to #20 in NJ.
What's up with the edp own cup? Not nearly enough teams entered. Will it happen?
6:17 I hope they get top flight.
7:28 PM what do you mean not nearly enough teams for EDP open Cup There are 21 teams, that's more than entered the State Cup.ALLEYCATS U13 GIRLS ELITE (NYE)ALUMNI HAWKS (NJ)BEACHSIDE SC CT BEACHSIDE (CT)CES CALVERT CREW WHITE (MD)ESSC/HENLOPEN WHITECAPS (DE)FC COPA ACADEMY LIMA NPL (NJ)INTERNATIONAL GIRLS FUTBOL ACADEMY 01-02 (NJ)JERSEY PREMIER SOCCER FLASH (NJ)JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC FUSION (NJ)MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC BLACK NORTH (NJ)MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC BLUE NORTH (NJ)MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC ECNL (NJ)MEDFORD SC HURRICANES (NJ)NEW JERSEY RUSH HAMILTON WILDCATS 01 GIRLS (NJ)NJCSA ELITE (NJ)NJCSA GALAXY (NJ)PDA SHORE FUSION (NJ)PISCATAWAY JAGUARS (NJ)REAL SHORE LAKEWOOD FC CREW (NJ)SJEB '01G NPL (NJ)TSF ACADEMY 01/02G (NJ)
Many holes in the schedule-besides the byes. They'll need to reset schedule if they can't fill the " teams to be determined".
3 TBDs, I think they can work it out. 21 teams is a far cry from "Not Nearly Enough Teams"
