U14G / U14 Girls Youth Soccer

U14G  / U14 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.

In my point of view futsal is great for developing a players mind with "Quick Thought Process", but of course it's not for everyone. For example if you have a speedy, athletic tall forward on the outdoor field that is unstoppable in the open space she may not be comfortable playing futsal but rather train more during the winter months to build on agility and strength. But if you have daughter that plays midfield futsal can benefit her with the quick thinking process and creativity on the ball.

Either way there are benefits in always touching a ball if it's futsal or just regular training. Just remember what a previous blogger posted that the majority if the Penn State Champs played multiple sports during there youth/HS years. So playing year round doesn't always assure you to be better later down the line.

Futsal is a great training aid if its used in that forum. For soccer players that push themselves all year, I'm not sure how much more you would want to push a weakened knee structure caused by a changing female body. Especially if your talking about playing futsal on a hard gym floor. Everyone makes their own decision in regards to their daughters health and need to rest. There are parents on our club having their daughters playing futsal while they are dealing with an injury. Tough decision

Anonymous said...

1118 to me that's a stupid decision of a parent to paly futsal while recovering from an injury. It's the worry wart parents that are putting their child in a bad situation. I personally rather have a kid at 100% come spring than still missing practices because of recovery or feeling pain.

Anonymous said...

11:40 Absolutely agree. Being healthy for the start of the season would be a priority. Futsal on a gym floor is horrible for the knees and girls suffer from a much higher percentage of knee injuries anyway. Futsal from U9 to U 12 is excellent though, and the players physically haven't gone through any changes at those ages.

Anonymous said...

Some parents don't care. It's just do do do. They have no idea what harm they are causing. I'm not saying doing futsal is bad. Great for footwork and speed of play but it's the ones that dont know how to manage the load for the sake of their child's body.

Anonymous said...

So I assume my daughter shouldn't play basketball either?

Anonymous said...

wow, great comments on Futsal. My daughter is a goal keeper, not so good for them. Sure, passing back, sweeper keeper, ball movement and quick reflexes are enhanced, however the knees, damage by diving, falling is not good at all for them. Much rather she play on turf, but so much winter training is held on gym floors it is hard to avoid. The gym allows teams to save $$$ and typically coaches can get the gym at no cost. Keep this in mind, keepers are crushed over the season if they play the right way, always diving and slide tackling, their bodies are beat up in general, especially if year round player. I strongly recommend keepers past age 12 as previous poster says to limit Futsal play.

Anonymous said...

True - keepers get the worst of futsal.

Anonymous said...

from the looks of the u14 lineups in some recent tournamentsthe field of teams has gotten much smaller this year. the teams that take futsal serious seem to be in the finals at every tournament over the past few years.we play futsal because my child loves it.On her soccer team she normally is a defender. in futsal she's one of our biggest playmakers and scores. I have 2 older kids that benefited tremendously from doing winter futsal. I always thought I could see a measurable difference in them on the soccer field come springtime. in my mind it's well worth the time and effort.

1:52 Not a question of whether you daughter should play basketball or not, that is your daughters choice. But if a player is playing club soccer from February right into summer, then school ball from August into October (practice every night plus a few club ones sprinkled in). Then competes in club fall soccer and plays basketball from mid November into the end of January (practice every night), where is the time to heal physically?
Each parent knows their kids physical limitations better than anyone else, but often its hard not to see them shine. Sometimes the sports car has to stay in the garage.

flights look good, it is so hard to tell, I think once you are completed and you look at history and scores that is only way to justify flighting. If they got it wrong it will be obvious. It is like why go to FC Delco with local competition good locally in NJ that particular weekend. Same with Jeff cup, if not playing top flights why go, just for prestige? If I am in top 2-3 flights I get it, but below that what is the point really? I am not critiquing, rather asking question. If you play locally in top flight and win, then you should go to Jeff cup, but if not why?

Mallory Pugh is going to bypass college for a professional contract with the U.S. Women’s National Team, according to a report from soccerwire.com on Friday.

These are the type of players of USSF Girl's Development Academy will benefit. The players that want to play pro will benefit from 4 training sessions a week and playing club soccer for 10 months a year. I just hope the NWSL can get stronger. Would love to see them expand to maybe 16 teams in D1 and then rebrand the WPSL as NWSL2 with pro/rel. There is not a lot of money to pay and with the federation paying the NT players an easy move to make. I believe this would grow the sport as you can have strong Youth Clubs under proper management going pro. Just a pipe dream on my part, I know.

OMG - Harford Thunder? Penn United?? PAC ??? 1776 ??? Not even close you need to get out a little more my friend and leave you PAGS memories behind - these teams are not even close. Since you love PAGS so much how come no LVU and YMS? Shoot straight if you want to play this game.

I would could have made an argument for Bethesda and Oakwood.
But Since the NJ Wildcats beat Bethesda and NEFC beat Oakwood 7-0, F1 teams don't lose by 7 to other F1 teams. I think the 8 F1 teams are the only options.

Anonymous said...

They did a good job. Even though its a safe bet to say Wildcats, PL, and BRYC will be making the early exit who else is a better choice to fill F1? Maybe Bethesda over PL if any.

Bethesda would get crushed by big scores at Jeff. They played in a lower bracket at Wags, barely getting by Severna Black and Hulmeville (another powerhouse PAGS team). The top eight are in F1.
The next three brackets are the fun ones to talk about.

It is funny to watch dump and chase kids try to play futsal.

Anonymous said...

Dump and Chase kids can benefit from futsal because that big, fast forward can learn the advantages of more 1v1 and stay keen on quick thinking during the off-season. Yes they may not shine on a futsal court but can shine on a outdoor field. Two different styles of play but ultimately need to learn all aspects of the game to be successful later.

Anonymous said...

Its funnier watching over the top parents scream and yell while their kids are playing futsal. Some of the players that are great at futsal, are not the best ones playing outdoors. A lot more ground to cover and a lot more chances to be exposed. Futsal is a good winter time activity that has training value, but it is also another great way for sport complexes to garner revenue. Just put the words "Regional" or "National Championship series" and start counting the dollars.

Anonymous said...

Futsal is great over the winter. It's the parents that have their kid playing futsal each week, participating in indoor leagues, attending trainings, ect. over the winter months all at once. Basically the ones living through their child and pushing unrealistic goals on them. Its what their kid "wants" though they'll tell you.

Daughter did not play futsal or indoor this season, at least for first session of winter play. Was experiencing pain in both shins after each game during fall season and it was not getting any better. I do think futsal's great for teaching defensive containment skills as well as foot work and passing. But like some of the bloggers have mentioned, I do worry about it being played after a heavy workload of first school and then club soccer, and the physical effects it may have. I do know that there was two PL teams at Regional futsal this weekend, but not sure how they did overall.
Both the last two bloggers were correct in describing PL. Since playing U13 at Spirit and getting to the finals, players have done well to maintain an F1 status as a non ecnl team. I think even BRYC and the Wildcats have dropped down to F2 at one or two tournaments and then have come back even stronger as an F1. Often wondered if that wouldn't have been a good thing for our team too
Also agree that if PL does not show well at Jeff (at least 1-1-1), the team will become an F2 as they finish out the year. Last game against the Wildcats was a tough, well played physical game. At Jeff both teams will be in dire need of a win this time as well. Should be fun.
Enjoy the Indoor play and futsay guys, soon there will be dreaded boyfriends and too much makeup.

Isn't it fair to say CASL has less of a chance than BRYC then. Of course since CASL beat FL elite 2-0 I will assume they have even less of a chance than CASL.

Seems any team that can take FCV to PK's has a shot at beating them. FCV is better than any of these overrated NE ecnl teams. And what does that say about the Wildcats who beat BRYC, or PL who beat the Wildcats? Looks to me these are some pretty evenly matched teams, well except for PDA who looks to be evenly matched with the F2 teams.

Anonymous said...

The F1 games are almost always low scoring affairs and seem to be decided by one defensive mistake or a sudden breakaway. We often talk about how fast the strikers are, or how great a teams offensive skill set is. But all these teams have defenses that don't allow many shots on goal and keepers that save the day.
The teams that will be in the F2 bracket are very good teams, but often inconsistent on the defensive end.

You can tell when your team(s) is on top when they are talked about the most on this blog. In my opinion the BYC change will help teams like Wildcats and PL the 1st year if they have a core group of players with chemistry that have stuck together the past few years it will help them transition better v all the teams with 50% change.

Anonymous said...

10:02 -

who cares? starting now (u15) it's more about the players than it is about the teams as the recruiting process starts. team results no longer very important, unless you are the doc trying to keep the club prominent. but even then it is more about where the players go to school.

Anonymous said...

Is that what PDA Storm and Match Fit plan on doing - have "50% change"?

US Soccer says the new age groupings are not meant to break up teams, but to give players a chance to play up

Wont most teams remain almost identical - with current U14s simply skipping U15 and playing U16 starting in September, by that guideline?

Why would Penn Legacy and Wildcats treat anything differntly than other clubs? Exolain yourself. And if yo have info on how specific clubs will move forward - please share

Anonymous said...

Most teams are already putting out the statement that an 02 playing up must be considered in the top 5 in order to do so. Where as Penn Fusions 01's make up a larger contingent their team, PL is just the opposite. Its 02 group would do well on their own without the aid of the 01's (keeper is an 02 also). Not sure of the Wildcats situation, but its probably something similar.
So how does this effect teams like PDA which has multiple teams? Will this allow players from Ajax and Dragons a better opportunity to play with the parent club?

Anonymous said...

PL team is made up of 60 to 70% 02's. If they follow the BYC rules those girls should be U15 next year well the rest of the team will be U16. Maybe the PL parents will see the writing on the wall and move their kids to PAC a year before the girls DA comes to them.

Anonymous said...

A player is easier to recruit playing age as a standout. Unless you can easily say your kid is better than the girls playing who are a full year older and would get more time than them on the field. If that's the case is that club/team very good? If not they probably won't be playing in showcases/tournaments that many recruiters will even be at. Playing age is best unless they're THAT good (realistically-not just in daddy/mommy's eyes).

Many of the players AREN'T a full year older.

As far as I know PDA and MFA have not give parents/players guidance but will be doing so by the end of the month I'd expect. Waiting on ECNL for some things I'd assume.

Anonymous said...

Yes many of the ECNL clubs are awaiting direction especially for the U15 group as many teams will be carrying girls in HS and 8th grade. I think they are trying to determine if there will be a U15 Fall season as in the past there has not.

PF holding Birth Year "ID" clinics in the next few weeks to determine who/what they have to work with before tryouts

10:15 - Agree 100% - who cares? It's ALL about the players!!!! Keep believing you need to be in top flight. The kid's team just has to play in an event where the school can send someone there to watch. Last time I checked no one is recruiting a team or player based on a team's trophy chest. I think Coaches go see the kids that have contacted them. SO if they have a list of 50 players at Jefferson, they are going to see those 50 players.

Just play the game and have fun and let us fools ramble on about GS and rankings and flights, what else do we have to do?

Well, if you believe the adage, GS4 - that playing better teams makes a player better -

then getting rewarded with higher flights is what we all would prefer.

To a certain extent the flighting IS of importance.

GS points have been BS for many years...

1:59 Indeed playing better teams helps you improve. But when it comes to flights that is out of everyone's control, so why worry if the team won? Did your kid play well? If not why? Was it them? Bad day? or are they on the wrong team?

GS points have always been BS but they were fun. This is the last year to enjoy them, because for most of our kids the Showcase years are here. You want to play good team ball and showcase your skills win or lose, I agree 2:05

What I care about is where my kid is playing next year? CASL, Disney, Jefferson & PDA would be perfect and if they also go to Surf that's magic.
But this is my opinion.

that is a lot of traveling money and if you throw Surf in there you are out of my league. I am pretty sure my daughter will not be going west to college so why go to Surf?

Anonymous said...

Well, flights for Jefferson have changed a little bit

TSF up to third flight (top 40)

For those attending Ultimate Cup and even Jeff Cup, Richmond about to get slammed with snow and it's only January. Better hope Spring comes early.

Anonymous said...

Yea because only west coast colleges will be there..? Recruiters do travel. Especially to big events where top players will be.

Anonymous said...

Could you please provide a link to where you saw TSF up to f3?

I dont see it.

Thanks

Anonymous said...

TSF went down from the 4th grouping (Flight 3, second division listed) to the 5th.

STA went from 5th to 4th

May have been to prevent an STA-Crush final

No worries, 4:31. Someone's just been trolling PL parents lately. If you ignore it, the posts will disappear.

Does anyone have an explanation for why the NSA Twisters are still in the 2nd flight? That team can't even make the top flight in crappy Illinois town tourneys so how do they warrant 2nd flight at JeffCup? If the tourney director doesn't change this, look for CFC to beat them by 10 and Frederick might even score two goals in a game.

Anonymous said...

I think their will be adjustments in some of the flights. Wasn't the Richmond Strikers and a couple other clubs dropped down last year?

Well, no - regarding Penn Legacy - didnt some yahoo claim that all the best players are '02s?

So why send the subpar '01s ahead without their great mates?

Like I said - '02s are scared.

Maybe these precious '02s can repeat 8th grade as well so that they dont have to be challenged too soon.

Anonymous said...

Why is the 16th ranked team in Region 1 in the 9th flight? I blame a conspiracy of STA/Crush/EM/Albertson and my ex-wife for this situation. Its pretty obvious, someone doesn't like us very much, but we love everyone!

Nah, he is talking about NYSC, I believe.

Funny.

TSF used to hover in that neighborhood. Seems they have changed places

Team I dont get is NJ Rush

5:33 your attack on Pl's 02 players is sad and pathetic. How about you let everyone here know where your kid plays and we'll go from there. Not sure why your so obsessed with PL's players, but try to stay off their snap chat and instagram account you sicko. You make crazy 1776 mom look like Mother Teresa. Your on here all the time making direct comments about players on different teams, and all it does it make your insecurity shine through. Its a shame that your parents didn't think you were worth spending time with, maybe if they had you wouldn't have become such a worthless ass. I do feel bad for your daughter though, but pretty sure by this time your spouse has been long gone.

Anonymous said...

How did you get all that from 5:33's post? I must've missed a post or or two along the way. Some fiestiness to end the evening!

Anonymous said...

Where are the flights located ?

Anonymous said...

Sorry. 5:33 hates that fact her daughter has become insignificant on her current team and now is in constant attack mode. Usually I ignore it, but I hate when it becomes a personal attack on players.

Awesome back to business parents. lol

Anonymous said...

Absolutely, and with enough posts gone that we might make it to Jeff Cup. Looks like no recent changes in the top three flights.

Looking ahead, which is the better Memorial Day tournament - Delco or PDA? What's the basis for your preference?

Anonymous said...

By memorial day it will be a lot of different teams as tryouts will be completed for BYC and many will look to see how the new makeup will impact their choices. I can see a lot of guess playing everywhere so to me it doesn't matter Delco or PDA. Gotta see who registers where.

Anonymous said...

Last year was PDA 10:25 - South Shore Select was F2 and Finished in 3rd just above Ajax in a 4 team division. But since PDA took down their tournament from GotSoccer removing the points and since their top team didn't even show up - I'm curious how many teams show up to this year's event.

PDA Showcase would blow Delco away but it's an invitational for this.

Anonymous said...

It's funny that PDA took down the GS points, I see many more teams flock to Delco. Both are ECNL clubs so I'm sure Delco will attract the ECNL clubs from the south(NY to S.C.), PDA will continue to attract the New England clubs. So there should be good competition at both.

Thank you Mr. Admin for taking the time to get the blog up and running. Maybe it'll be a kinder gentler blog this time?

Yes, after I sent him 2 emails about it, you should be thanking me!!
