If they do go birth year starting 2015-2016 it will be a benefit to 2002 players. Still not sure it'll actually happen.
Lmao!!!I think he meant buffoon????
Sounds like it is going in 2016-2017.So next spring tryouts would be for calendar year. Won't hurt as much as people think.IF they do it that way in the northeast/mid-atlantic, as well.

Dude what's the big deal 01 or 02? Most of this age group is going to HS next year and guess what most of them will play varsity with girls 1, 2 and 3 years older .So what has you so scared about birth year?02 becomes u15 on schedule01 becomes u16 they move up a year and actually lose a year of soccer (u15) if this goes into effect next year. I'm guessing your kid never played ODP right? because if they did you know exactly where they stand. PDA and Match Fit won't get hurt it's the smaller clubs that get crushed
Hey 2:42? Where does it say that about this so called Slick? I have never seen that on here. Please copy and re-post.
When will they change to birth year? Does it apply to every team?
642 - dude , it does matter. These girls get recruited for college by club teams , not high school. If you lose a starting position at the critical recruiting years , it matters when it matters most. Maybe you kid will get recruited from high school... Mine is a starter and an 02 , I don't care , but I know many that are older on our team that will lose spots to girls playing one year up.
My kid never played odp, because it's a joke.
Then your kid has nothing to worry about.
Not worried a bit and never have been. Just saying saying I never bought into the odp - pay to play.
If your worried then your kid isn't good enough to get recruited. Please don't take that the wrong way - I'm just playing, I'm sure your kid will be okay and your are just doing the parent thing a little worry on the side. Look at 8:58 this guy has never payed a club tuition for his kid to play (no pay to play there) all our kids should be so good to play for free all these years. My wallet is jealous.
6:42 ... I don't think anyone would miss a year. 01's would play u15 on schedule and 02's would play u14 again. At least that is what I gathered from comparing to Boys Development Academy age eligibility ...
That is correct. The older age moves on to the next age, and the younger repeats the one they were in. I have talked to a lot of people on this and the conventional wisdom is that where won't be wholesale changes on teams, and that at least to start the teams will be just like they are now with modest changes. Some kids will lose and some will win, but the majority will feel no impact. The older you get the less impact there is.
That's where both of you 7:41 & 8:09 are wrong. If you did ODP you would understand. All 2001s are u15 for ODP and u14 for club during the 2015/2016 season. If this goes into effect next season 2001s will become u16 not u15 and the 2002 will move up to u15 as they would anyway for this age group. Time doesn't stop for the 2001s so YES they will lose a year of soccer
Look at it this way the correct age for 2001s this year would be u15 since they all turn 14 this year. Next year they will all turn 15 making the U16. Sorry unless they come up with some plan for these kids they all lose a year not just the 01s but all kids born between Aug 1 and Dec 31.
Stop all the nonsense. Nothing will be changing for our daughters.
8:50 that is correct if you kid is an 02 they will move up to u15 next season and if they are an 01 they will move up to u16. So depending on when your kid was born nothing changes or they change teams. Of course unless this change is for ECNL teams only as they are Girl's version of the DA and all others remain the same which is probably how it all goes down, so yes I agree with you 8:50 nothing changes unless you kid plays for an ECNL team.
Right on 8:50 and ECNL will change 2003-04 not our age or older.
Nothing would change for our daughters. If the current team has 02's on it, they would basically just play up. The younger ages they will try to go by birth years more.
You say nothing changes, but the O2 's could play up. But the 2001 currently playing up can come down and take your spots and the 2002 can move down and take other girls spots. A lot will change, especialailly for the older girls playing down.

The only thing changing will be the next team Slick goes to. When he decides to make another of his many back door deals.
Who is Slick?
Slick is the Dad, of the MF player who left MF to join PDA, she was injured to the u15 USWNT camp, and is a very talented player, one of the best in NJ.
Sorry, invited, not injured, duh.
My daughter is the best so she must be 2nd best than.
No way dude, my daughter is the best your kid must be the 2nd best and she must be the 3rd best.
No she's is not, I saw her play last year, and she is pretty good, but not the best.Hint: a girl with the same last name as me is the best, but I don’t like to brag...
Wait a second - she can play and she is great but my kid is still the best (11:57)
best is a misnomer, what I meant to say is she is the bestest of the best, so she would be better you your kid, or the other guys kid, or slick’s kid, or any other 13 year old in the world, now that is impressive.
BTW: She is the best in New York State, which everyone knows is better than New Jersey, so I guess she is better by default, no?

Mine is the best forward and scores the most and best goals which is more important than being the best defender or middie. So sorry, yours make a solid contribution, but mine is the best.
My daughter (Best player in NYS) plays holding-mid, and she eats forwards for lunch, not even for lunch, more as a snack, before she thinks about eating lunch. Your daughter is good, but when she plays against our team, and my kid, she usually start crying half-way through the 2nd half because she knows that she cant score a goal, but I know you are proud of her anyway.
If she is a holding mid and she is concentrating on forwards and not attacking mids she can't be much of a holding mid..The ball should have never gotten to the forwards to begin with
Hahaha, I don't know about you, but we play against some of the best teams in Region 1, and those teams love to lob the ball over the top, and sometimes it gets to the fast girl, but the fast girl does not know what to do with it when she sees my daughter, so she usually goes sideways, thence loses the ball to our attacking-mids, and off we go the other way. Besides its okay to cry, its not baseball.
Thanks GS 4 Life. Now we get to see what teams will move up from the second bracket and what teams go down. There should be some improvements over last year too.
I would not even say she was best on her team nor on her new team
US Soccer disagrees with you.
Dude you must have my girl mixed up with another. My girl is the best even better than the bestest of the best which I know is hard to believe because she is super fabulous. But my girl has only played on one team and she plays every position once she played an entire team by herself and one she was like the flash just a blur.
two -what's your hang up?
"D.C. United U-13 Ready to Represent U.S. Soccer at CONCACAF Champions League"Do you think we will ever see something like this on the Girls Side. Can you imagine your kid playing for DA title or can I just call it like it will be an ECNL title after winning the event they advance to a CONCACAF Girls tournament.
If it ever does I'm sure Slick will have some type of involvement with it.
3:17. As is always the case here today gone tomorrow and then behold they are looking at someone else.
No truer words were ever spoken 706Enjoy the recognition. Soccer Nut.
Stars schedule is out. I think home teams should have an easier bracket but FC Stars doesn't play any team worthy of a F1 designation.
The teams that play the Stars are saying the same thing
Good point! Lol
3:17 US soccer took the better players than her as well, the ones that are a better player than she is on both teams respectably. I guess they did not disagree with me
8:05 Breakers the same thing. Their parents that know region 1 are happy with that schedule
After reading over so many negative posts, heres an idea. Just sit back and enjoy! Cross your fingers your daughters team plays well! It's out of your control. The best of teams have bad games! Anything can happen in any one of them. Good luck to all teams playing in Spirit this weekend!
11:25 is this post negative? I wish the best to SJEB - they got what every team wants when they go to a tournament to be in the top flight, I think? After looking at their results last season, I wonder if this will be a good thing, this team gave up 6 goals a few times to teams not at the same level. So I ask the question, what happens to these kids if they give up 20 goals in 2 games? Parents just remember to pick them up, that's the negative. However,if they do well against these two teams well then that's another story. Keep it close SJEB on your first day as a F1 team at a major. Good LuckNEFC ELITE U14 GIRLS (MA)EAST MEADOW HOTSHOTZ (NYE)
NEFC might drop a ten-spot on them, but not the Hicksville Hotshotz.
Stars will still make more adjustments I think they are awaiting for the results of this weekend's Spirit which is smart.
I hope SJEB added some layers this off season. They will have a tough time. Looking at the available teams in the flight below, Dragons should be in that spot.
They will move down guarantee it, again Stars will wait for results from Spirit.
Wow just looked at Stars brackets, what a joke they did flighting teams in top 3 brackets. Some teams are gonna cream others while others will get creamed. Got soccer is a joke, so many players changed around to other teams within their clubs and got soccer doesn't account for that unless more than 50% of team stay on it in order to keep points. Should be interesting, if some teams think they can compete in top flight(sta) just because they are ranked #1 in NJ they are in for rude awakening. Surprised none of you gurus saw this. LOL
No offense to SJEB or MF NPL but don't how did they get in those spots to begin with? I can see STA because of their GS rankings.I totally disagree with finding comfort in playing in a top flight if you can not compete. SJEB and MF NPL are going to be dominated from start to finish.
MF NPL in particular will be exposed as no longer the same leverl team.I don't think SJEB has tried to promote their team as that level so they will be given more slack. MF NPL continues to say they will not drop off from level of former team without players who moved on to ECNL Team.Stars results will tell the tale for sure.
What moves are they going to make? Other than PDA Dragons, what other team would they move out of Championship and into Premiership?There are definitely some teams in the Premiership bracket that are going to take a beating...and it's unfortunate. I wouldn't want my daughter's team mis-flighted at this time of year when teams are trying to integrate new players, systems, etc... it could be a demoralizing start to the year.
The great thing is no one has complained about the flights. My guess is the PDA Dragons don't care where they play. I just find it funny how MF NPL is new to the NO NPL league that the Dragons won last year, STA lost to the Dragons last year and didn't make the NPL Final semi-finals, SJEB didn't even qualify for the NPL finals. Not sure about Ramapo and I'm okay with all these teams getting a shot - I just find it odd that the Dragons were over looked, they even beat FC Stars West and Tied NYSC. Must be a FC Stars / PDA thing or the FC Stars coaches had some say in the flights and think the Dragons are not at the premiership level.
PS. I think FC Stars was probably better off just making one premiership flight with 12 teams and a championship flight with 12 as well.F1 1 BOSTON BREAKERS ACADEMY GU14 ECNL (MA)2 PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY STORM (NJ) 3 STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01 (NJ) 4 ALBERTSON FURY '01 ECNL (NYE)5 FC STARS OF MASS ECNL (MA)6 EAST MEADOW HOTSHOTZ (NYE)7 NEFC ELITE U14 GIRLS (MA) 8 WORLD CLASS FC '01 ECNL (NYE) 9 FSA FC U14 GIRLS ECNL 01 (CT)10 MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC ECNL (NJ)11 SOUTH SHORE SELECT U14 ELITE (MA) 12 NEW YORK SC G01 (NYE)F21 SJEB '01G NPL (NJ)2 FC STARS OF MASS WEST UNITED (MA)3 MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC NE NPL (NJ)4 RAMAPO VALLEY SC TORNADOS '02 (NYE)5 FC BOSTON BBA GU14 WEST ROYAL (MA)6 GPS MA METRO NORTH ELITE GU14 (MA)7 PDA DRAGONS (NJ)8 SEACOAST UNITED ELITE -CS- 01/02 (NH)9 BAYSIDE FC BOLTS NPL RED 01/02 (RI)10 BEACHSIDE SC CT BEACHSIDE (CT)11 FC BOSTON BBA BOSTON GU14 ELITE (MA12 FC STARS OF MASS NPL (MA)
12:50, I agree.
11:56- So what will you say if MF NPL does well at the tournament? Are you at their practices? Before making a statement that they will be exposed why not wait and see. I'm not saying they will or won't be but nobody knows for sure.As for saying that they continue to say they will not drop off, when did any parent from MF say this? I do not believe anyone came on here and said their child plays for them and they will or won't drop off. I am not a parent from MF but people just need to relax and enjoy the sport that their child plays.
They will not drop off./jk Seriously, just play the games it's a pre-season tournament. Dragons not in the top group is surprising and my guess is they may have requested that. Obviously Stars wanted to have as many ECNL/NPL matchups while trying to make it somewhat equitable. When you look at the MFA NE-NPL, schedule I'd expect them to beat Ramapo Valley, and be competitive against the Albertson and Stars ECNL teams. My guess is they end up with 4 points on the weekend.
The MF ECNL team stripped the age group of talented players regardless of position. As much as MF gets ripped for shady roster moves and back room deals they did put the best players on the ECNL team. Both teams will need time to adjust. MF ECNL will need to get all the girls on the same page and build team chemistry. They have the athletes. MF NPL is the opposite. I think team chemistry will be good despite the high roster size. Most of these players did not play much so will be excited to contribute.
12:50 I agree with your idea. I would switch STA and PDA Dragons. Stars of Mass really manipulated the flights. Their bracket is really weak and they put NEFC in a tough group far away from them and Breakers. Just to clarify. Match Fit merged the ECNL team and NE NPL team from last year. The 15/16 NE NPL team is completely new?
I believe the NE/NPL team is primarily a combination of the MFA Black team and the Pre-ECNL team. Kids know each other well, and have the benefit of coaching continuity.
6:26- thanks for the clarification. Did they get light blue game jerseys or was that a PDA joke? I believe they had black and white game jerseys? I will be looking for the MF teams at Stars of Mass. With long delays between games will try and see some of the teams mentioned out here.
5:10 Show me a club that doesn't do back door deals! PDA just did one with Slick and another MF parent did one with both of her daughters with PDA. Soooooo people who live in glass houses..........
And Morris United STA in top flight palease!!!!
Dragons are no longer top flight team.Lost their best 4 players and their coach and trainer.But they would have been F1 at Stars based on last years rep except that PDA Club won't allow them in top flight of tournament that Storm plays in.Lemming parents stop attacking STA it's your own club keeping you down.
I checked ECNL site, how can players be listed on roster for Match Fit and PDA at same time. Isn't their a rule preventing players to play or be on roster with 2 ECNL clubs in same year?
Wow just checked that out, probably didn't update rosters yet, GS still has old MF NE NPL listed with like 6-8 players on it but another MF npl listed too. I see Slick is still listed as a MF coach, how long will it be before he is listed as a Storm asst. coach. Maybe just maybe he couldn't get that one through the back door this time. Ole Slick he is slipperrier than an eel, ain't he???? Give'em a bit o time and he will slip right through.
Even with the players who left, Dragons are not an F1 team. And neither is STA, NYSC, MF NPL, Ramapo, SJEB. And Dragins have beat all of them.
11:41. Got Soccer is just a tool to use and have fun with. Calling Got Soccer a joke because they didn't account for player movement? Really? I guess they will not put out anymore point values until they know where daughter is playing next year. 11:41 wins contest for most negative and showing the ability to be stupid too.
9:21 I think i agree with you - PDA Dragons became the little B team that could last season beating NJ Wildcats (1-0), STA (3-2), Ajax (1-0) and MF NPL (3-0) the who is who of non-ecnl teams in NJ - they could do no wrong on this board, they would even be a top 25 nationally ranked GS team. We couldn't have that could we? So let's take away the PDA tournament because PDA hates GS and the little B team that could disappeared after being crushed by NEFC and not even making a premiership flight at Stars event. The question is would Stars have placed them in premiership flight if they were top 25 nationally ranked GS team? Would have been a nice sub plot to have a NPL Finals rematch NEFC vs Dragons in one of the first majors of the new season.
Is it Slick or Slippy?
Thanks 10:58, now I can go sleep knowing that you are on the ball, you are a real humanitarian, and so informed!Not sure who the Dragins are, but if you say so, so be it.
10:58 How about the below flight? Not bad right - 6 of the 8 teams are in Stars Premiership flights except the winner of the flight? One PDA team didn't drop a game while the other didn't win a game. The one that didn't win a game is also F1 at Spirit making the champion of this flight the only non F1 team. Make what you will of it.

FC Stars West is their own team ranked #36 nationally by GS and would be even higher if they still had their finalist points from PDA tournament, hard to justify them not being in premiership. which leave us with Ramapo and SJEB,so they went with these two instead of Seacoast and Beachside which is okay I guess since it looks like PDA Dragons were never an option for premiership, a couple hints were dropped on this board that this may have been by request.SEACOAST UNITED ELITE -CS- 01/020-1 NEFC ELITE U14 GIRLS (MA)0-3 NEFC ELITE U13 GIRLS (MA)0-4 NEFC ELITE U13 GIRLS (MA)1-0 FC STARS OF MASS WEST UNITED (MA)0-2 FSA FC U13 GIRLS PRE-ECNL 01 (CT)1-1 MATCH FIT ACADEMY NORTH EAST NPL (NJ)BEACHSIDE SC CT BEACHSIDE3-1 RAMAPO VALLEY SC TORNADOS '02 (NYE)1-1 RAMAPO VALLEY SC TORNADOS '02 (NYE)2-1 SJEB '01G NPL (NJ)1-2 MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC BLACK (NJ)

Still confused? I just re-posted - guess I should have stayed in school - man do I feel sorry for my kids.
It's no fun not having crush play in every tournament like in the past. They would be counting the hours, talking about the trip with the family and how their odds are very good for a win.
I believe they have lost half the team and in a rebuilding stage. They also have a b team and it just becomes a number and money grab for the club at this point. Stay a step above the town team and they will come and pay.
The real truth is that the Crush is just above a town team and their "b" team would have trouble with a town team
What's a town team?
5:49 time to look for another blog
Ajax- what happened last night? Heard about some sort of blowout????
Heard PF beat a PDA team in a scrimmage last night 5-1. Was that Ajax or one of the other PDA teams?
What the odds that that 5:59 and 6:11 are the same person talking to herself,
Could be but since PDA is always all over this blog how come there aren't any answers to the simple question? Must have been players 16-26 that played the whole game
Zero because Im 5:59.It was Ajax 6:11. Bet their practice is extra long after that one.
GS has Ajax roster at 18.
So what's the word? Will it be an all MA final this weekend?
WOW PF NPL beat Ajax 5-1? Man the NPL division is going to be wide open.

If you say so 11:18
That had to be PF's ECNL team, not the NPL team right?
It was PF ECNL team that beat AJAX 5-1
Forget about the PF/Ajax score. PDA was using a field player as keeper and moving players around while only working on fundamentals. Top starting players were not allowed to shoot on goal and had to pass off to other players and let them shoot, but not with their strong leg. PF acted like it was a real game and didn't work on skills like PDA did. PF parents even cheered when goals were scored, obviously not understanding what a PDA practice is about.
9:47 That kook aid taste good this morning? Just keep writing your checks... maybe your kid will make an ECNL team someday. Maybe at U17 or U18 when the schools stop looking.
9:47 I'm sure that PDA parents cheered also when goals were... Sorry, when GOAL WAS scored.
9:47 was being sarcastic, and not taking himself too seriously, or herself. If they did play a game, am curious why PF did not play Storm, would seem more appropriate, no? Unless this is all made-up, which it probably is, why would PF travel all that way for a scrimmage with PDA South?
9:47 LOL Nice try.
Yes! Of coarse that's how it was. "Suzy, Betty, and Cindy you are my top players. You are not allowed to shoot! You must pass the ball to the weaker ones AFTER you do a cartwheel and spin 3 times. Weaker ones, you can shoot but first you must do 5 jumping jacks. After all this is just a scrimmage." I'm sure those fundamentals will make all the difference tomorrow when you play PAC and South Shore. Good luck.
Wait is PF ECNL bragging about beating a Non-ECNL "C" team 5-1? Isn't that supposed to happen? Don't ECNL get the best players? I'm confused that's like the NJ Wildcats bragging that they beat SJEB 6-0, that should happen and it did just like PF beating up the C team.
10:48 - please point out the post where anyone from PF bragged about anything.
To much PDA beating on this blog does it really matter ECNL,NPL, North, South, Shore PDA teams the club alone produces collegiate players and if your daughter wants to play in college it's the right club to play for. Facts are Facts out of the graduating class of 2015 PDA produced 27 D1 players according to TopDrawerSoccer that the most in the country. Probably more D2 that never registered as well. http://www.topdrawersoccer.com/commitments/club/women/2015
No affiliation with either team here but not sure there's anything too crazy about two teams who are both in top flight at Spirit scrimmaging each other. Go have your coffee mate.
Seems like there are a lot PF people on here, keep pounding your chests as PDA will ultimately overcome you guys.
Say what you want. There's is no doubt PDA has one of the largest talent pools. AJAX can hang pretty well with other clubs best teams. Just a few months back they beat BRYC and only lost 2-3 to PL at Delco.
ECNL team beat up on a non ecnl team. Isn't that supposed to happen?
That PDA ECNL team is strong. DAMMM! Good Luck with that Matchfit
11:15 Exactly they do have a large talent team and the model seems like it's working looking at the link that was given PDA has 17 locked up for D1 already for the class of 2016. That's impressive just shows all those girls Junior of HS were already done and can relax and enjoy there senior year. Parents should pay attention to those statistics even look at up your own club and surrounding clubs.
You already said that 11:17. Drink another and please stop posting every 5 minutes. It's obvious.
Wildcats are not ECNL so don't understand how them beating SJEB 6-0 is "same thing" as PF ECNL beating PDA Ajax NPL Team.Wildcats and SJEB are both NPL clubs and both played in same EDP/NPL league and both qualified for post season playoffs.Those 2 clubs are on exactly the same competitive level.They are both the "A" Teams in NPL Clubs.So are NJCSA ,TSF, STA,etc. in NJ.
10:59, they have MFA at 19 but I believe there count is in the mid to high 20s, so I'd guess PDA is around 30. On the current U18s the count is higher as there are a handful of players who graduated in 2014.
Give PF a break. Think they were 0-8 vs PDA last season in pre ECNL and NPL league play. You know your in need of attention when your posting scrimmage scores.Great job PF, we are proud of you!
11:43 agree but I'm only showing the facts of each graduating class, people on hear need to realize it's not a certain team or going calendar year we should be looking at but review what graduating year your daughter is expecting to be in because a year or 2 from now they will be scratching there heads asking how come no college coaches are looking at their daughter.
Top 4 teams in NJ:1. PDA ECNL2. MF ECNL3. PDA NPL North4. PDA NPL South
Haters in high volume this fine Friday!
1226 why post top teams in NJ who cares about one state at this age it's who is best in the region. But I do agree about the post looking at specific graduation year as my daughter is on the older end playing HS this fall and still playing club soccer. Probably will need to move her next year.
I agree 1:08 - below is GS Non-ECNL top 20 for Region1. Who should fall off and replaced by who, in your opinion?1 NEFC ELITE U14 GIRLS2 SOUTH SHORE SELECT U14 ELITE3 STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 014 PENN LEGACY FC 01 BLACK5 CESC CALVERT CREW WHITE6 FC STARS OF MASS WEST UNITED 01/027 NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH-NPL8 PDA NORTH NPL DRAGONS9 FC FREDERICK '0110 PA CLASSICS ACADEMY 0111 NEW YORK SC G0112 1776 UNITED FC XTREME13 GREATER BINGHAMTON UNITED FC 01 SELECT14 YARDLEY MAKEFIELD SOCCER YMS BANSHEES15 EUSA EMPIRE UNITED ROCHESTER 01/0216 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI 01 NPL17 REAL NJSC SOUNDERS18 FC STARS OF MASSACHUSETTS NORTH UNITED19 JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC FUSION20 PWSI COURAGE 01G RED
Easier to tell after this weekend and we see the results of South Shore, Wildcats, PL, PAC, 1776 ect. It's a new year.
GS points is an ok place to start. But to 12:26 post, the top teams from the region may not be on that list.
Yes, that's why I asked who would be included in the conversation not on that list. So we can start the motions of validation.
From NJ I would put PDA South NPL and MF NENPL on the list. I would take off Crush and Boca and the Real Sounders.
PDA South have never defeated Crush.Might have a chance if they use some Storm players, as I have heard they do sometimes
ECNL CONFERENCE PREVIEWS 20151The Elite Clubs National League (‘ECNL’) is the highest level of play in female youth soccer in the nation, and is the competition and development platform for the country’s best female soccer players, teams and clubs. The ECNL includes seven regional conferences across the United States consisting of a total of 79 member clubs. When discussing the impact the ECNL has had on female youth soccer in Texas, Kioumar Rezaie, Director of Coaching for the Dallas Texans, said the ECNL “has definitely given everyone a realistic view of what an elite level of soccer looks like, and has motivated players to maximize their potential and dream bigger.” ECNL National Events are the destination for US Soccer youth national team scouts and for collegiate scouting. ECNL Conference competition lies at the heart of the ECNL, and is the primary method by which teams qualify for the ECNL Post-Season each year. Conference games feature some of the most heated rivalries in youth soccer, and winning an ECNL Conference Championship is a matter of huge pride for every player and club
GS a funny thing. Teams like to brag about their GS rankings (which were points earned last year) then disregard losses to team because "that was last year". NEFC is right to be #1, the rest are mostly EDP teams who get 10K a year for finishing top 3 in their EDP leagues. GS a good tool to see a teams results and past games.
You tell em Crush guy!Go Crush, woohoo!!!!!
Since this site is represented by many states how about a top 5 NPL region 1 ranking:1. NEFC2. SS3. PL4. PDA North5. ????

Personally, I really like number 5., they play soccer the right way. Oh, what is that you ask? The world may never know.
SRA, 4:38Dont make it difficult
STA, that is
This is all based on last U13 results. Since that is the case then MF NENPL would be in that spot. No question.
4:53- LOL, fair enough. I said top 5 and only listed 4. I tried to find head to heads, league results, tournament results, etc. When I realized how much time I wasted looking into I bailed on it.STA has legit resume. NJ Cup Final, NPL finals 3-2 loss to NEFC in bracket play.
Ah STA, my favorite club. Ever play at their fields in Morristown, ever hear the ghostly screams that come blowing down from the abandoned Insane Asylum, no? I have, and its unnerving.
Could be Calvert. Could be Averbush. Could be GBFC.I think STA is betterDragons get in top 5 based on one weekend, where NYSC choked to get Dragons into final. To be fair, Dragons had to win that day as well - and did vs STA - then won final and the near 9000 pointsResults always speak.
Stop with the MF NPL trolling. Good bunch of kids, nobody at MF saying they are great.
Was talking U13. Read the post again. Compliment to NJX. Nobody is sure what teams look like at u14
May all our voices whisper to you from the ageless stones, "Go tell the Spartans, passerby, that here by Spartan law, we lie."
Results always speak, to what? How much of a moron you are, yeah they speak volumes.
5:54 with a zinger.
The NYSC guy is a little full of himself. Better team moved on.
6:11, not sure if you are the same loser who posted that profound comment at 5:34, but if you are, let me just say this. I have never called another team’s performance a choke. I played soccer, I coached soccer, and I love the game, now and forever. Since I know how tough it is to perform in front of parents, coaches, friends, and rivals, the word choke implies the very worst of human nature, the very worst. It shows the type of petty insecurity that only an immature fool would exhibit, so congrats on being YST Fool for the Day, its a great honor! Not sure what team you are with, don’t really care, but to make a comment like that about a bunch of kids you don’t know, is douche-bag Dad of the Month worthy.
Match Fit NPL may not drop off all that much. They always get a good number to tryouts and that team was together so long it may have needed an infusion anyway.Better skilled players moved up. Yes, this I understand. But a new mix of hard working team oriented players could surprise.Is it BLACK taking the NJX slot and BLUE playing NYCSL NPL? Anyone know for sure?thx
To clarify -"Results always speak" is a reference to the thought that Dragons may have backed into their second flight title on their home turf - that even though they were gifted the slot in the finals, yes - they did win vs a quality team in that final (you could argue) - and thus did take advantage when the door opened - as good teams do.Dragons may not really be as good as their lofty GS status. Maybe they are. We'll see.
6:29, did you make the choke comment?
6:35Cut the apron - let your girl live out of the bubble
Sorry, I meant 6:39, I am so angry I cannot type correctly, yes, or no?
5:34Maybe you should have said EPIC FAIL, not choke. NYSC guy may have been OK with that.
NYSC winning percentage isn't even 50%.
Har-har, you got me there, I guess a 0-0 result against any PDA team is an Epic Fail...
Had to actually go look that up, I am impressed, do you have an iPhone, or are you using your wife’s PC?
PDA? No, the game was a 2-1 loss vs MF NPL. A win or even a tie I believe had NYSC in final
Look I have to go, the team has a practice tonight. But just to recap, I have never boasted about NYSC, I have never bashed another team, I enjoy reading these posts for what they are, just random opinions, and some good statistics. BTW; I did not make the comment at 5:09, guess someone else thinks the team is pretty good. Good night, and fair-well, see you on fields...
We all think you are good, NYSC guyHave a good night
I was looking for some options for the #5 NPL Region 1 teams. NEFC, SS, PL and PDA North Dragons were locks. 1.NEFC. Possibly best overall (ECNL included) team in Region 1. 2-4 you can put SS, PL and PDA north in any order. No head to heads, I can find?

Dragons beat both of them head to head and also had a better record than STA vs GS top 100 teams. So I think they earned being placed in the NJ top 5 based on the body of their u13 results not just one tournament. Some one has to stop the hate.
4:50 Loudoun VA
8:50 not sure you how you pull all that info but very impressive. Think we will find #5 at Spirit. Looking forward to Breakers vs PL result. Bracket A is a pickem Think SS and PF will be well rested going into semi finals. Good luck to all.
Yes 5:41. The new MF NPL team is not making any promises. Bottom line is the majority of the black team and a bunch from ECNL is still together and all the players and families get along very well. It's a nice environment for everyone involved, especially with the new additions to the team. They're a great bunch of athletes that will compete. Like any new team will take some time but they don't need anyone on the blog to put them in the top 5 of this or that. Everyone else can have that..for now
Where does the new MF NPL team practice out of, Holmdel or Jefferson? Just curious, may have my daughter transfer there.
I think she has to apply first :)MF guy - is Black/remainder of ECNL roster to play in NE NPL?Who is in NYCSL, if you know,Thanks
MF NPL practices out of Morris Catholic HS in Denville which is former black and some ECNL players.

spoke to Boston parent today, new Boston ECNL team. New team is made up of FC Stars North United (same coach coaching ECNL team) with Boston ECNL team. Boston team lost #24 and 3 other to NEFC. Those players left prior to end of season and played with NEFC in NPL and National Cup finals.
11:07Yes you are correct. So NEFC also has used a page out of PDA's play book. She is very good. Was very good when we played against her on the Breakers also.
Which team is stronger?

Best game yet to happen at Spirit. Breaker vs PL. The winner of that game plays Penn Fusion ECNL in semis.South Shore will be waiting in the Finals.On a kinder side... Happy for SJEB. Hope they do well this weekend. Stars of Mass will be a rough trip for them.
11:50, what page out of the PDA playbook are you referring to?
1:51- I think it's page 1. Build a great program (coaches, trainers, facilities etc) and talented players will come to IMPROVE their game.
Boy o boy does Ajax look good or what? 3 - 1 and 3 - 0 losses and consi game manana. Lots of fretting and grumbling on that parent sideline. Time for some pr damage control by MO. LMFAO
New Ajax players not impactful? More of the same?
They got blown out a year ago by the MF Black team so it's not surprising
All 4 final games to decide. In a 2 game bracket, tiebreaker could be huge.

I am sure their accomplishments go beyond what is shown on GS. Can someone please post the MF Black scrimmage record? Past 2 seasons would be good enough.
4:30- LOL, also could you let us know if any MF Black players actually played in the scrimmages.
PF, Braddock and SS through to semis.
PL/BB 1-1 at half.
