Seriously, please shut up about PDA. We get it. Move on with your life and keep your misery to yourself. Thank you, although now I'm sure to be called a loser and a dope or something witty like that...
Have to say looking at recent list of games/events on gotsoccer for pda dragons team team 3:40 is exactly right.Dragons did do very few events and no out of state travel compared to storm, ajax and even other clubs.Maybe PDA Club charged Dragons families a far reduced yearly rate compared to storm and ajax.Can anyone confirm if that is the case?
What events was Storm in that Dragons weren't? Neither team plays as much as other teams in top 10.
Maybe that is why they have fewer injuries than other teams.
Storm played one more game than Dragons. They reached the finals of the SC where Dragons only made it to the semi-finals.
What does $2500 for the year cover? How many tournaments and how many league games? Maybe it's just me but that is a lot.
At fc delco I was disappointed matchfit black came away with 3 ties.they look very good but we're having trouble finishing.looks like the coach has addressed this issue. Like I said last week should finish strong this year. Good luck in North Carolina! nice job girls and coaches.

9:52. Great job. I guess that will be missing early games from the Spring Cup? Look at PDA Storm GS points. Pretty impressive when you see how few games they play.
So does this mean that Storm players are subsidizing dragons and Ajax?
you are forgetting Friendlys. Storm had many. Don't recall dragons having any.just sayin.
I am not forgetting friendlies, no way to validate.I think I got all the NJ US Club games (maybe I missed AJAX). I just took the 3 PDA teams plus the 3 MF teams plus 3 Board favorites (Nj Wildcats, NJ Crush and Rage) and compared their total GS games, JAGS and NPL games to see the difference. PDA North played the same amount with Storm set to play another 3 minimum at the Region 1 championships. That will put the 6 games behind Wildcats, NJX and NJ Crush and lets throw AJAX into this mix. Dragons are 9 off the pace, really the team played 30+ games and we are going to complain. MF Black got lot of grief on this board for not playing in many events, well after a min of 3 games at the NPL Finals they will be at 46 almost 50 games played in a season (I'm sure if you count friendlies they went over 50.So the USSF said 3:1 training to game ratio.Lets take 10 months x 4 weeks per month for a total of 40 weeks x 2 training sessions a week = 80 training sessions. The USSF thinks teams should play no more than 26 games per 80 training sessions.I do like more games played since it helps with soccer IQ but I'm not a pro and i'm not sure what's better m0re games = better soccer IQ or 3:1 training to game ratio.
Not one of the Club's mentioned31 outdoor games played at approx 2k.is PDA worth $500 more? I don't know!
10:47- Appreciate the fact that you bring some real information to the blog. Thanks.
Don't have the luxury I guess to be on this blog every day but reading back today and wow are the Wildcat parents out in full force. Didn't they lose to PDA in the game that counted the most?? State Cup! Fixated on developmental league wins. Reason why there is no big tourney win or state cup trophy..... Relax people. Marathon, not a sprint....
7:52 YES! Here are the facts-Fall SC semis- Storm knocks out Wildcats.-EDP Fall;PDA Ajax 1st place-PDA Tournament- PDA puts Ajax in same bracket(3rd) as Wildcats. Ajax advances and wins the FinalEDP Spring- PDA Storm 1st.
Don't you know that most of the time, & it's impossible I guess to verify, people post on this Blog pretending to be someone they are not? From what I know of the Wildcat parents/families, & I know some of them well, I highly doubt all this bravado comes from any of them. Just the same for NJX, PDA, etc. Otherwise 7:52 you are spot on, this is a marathon - for most of us a 10 year+ one starting at u7'ish & ending hopefully well into u20s. Results at this age of course have meaning for the PRESENT but should be quickly stored in the memory cabinet as you move forward DEVELOPING.
10:47, spot on. Teams are playing too many games at this level looking for Got Soccer points. 12-year olds need more rest and to do other things. Ask the teams that have the most games how many injuries they have? PDA teams do not.
Can't go back to fall state cupWildcats and Storm teams had a different makeupTeams are even. Storm had 1 more point but lost h to h
You only can go back to the Fall when it is convenient for the WCs, don't you know that? Come on, try to keep up.
9:18 I don't argue your point. But why do we care if Wildcats are even with Storm? Storm will move to pre-ECNL schedule and travel with ECNL u14 Girls i think.Wildcats will start playing for a national title of their own, by first winning the EDL NPL then advancing to the NPl Finals like MF Black did this year.US Club Soccer admits ECNL is the top of their Pyramid and NPL isn't trying to compete with ECNL.So why are we trying to compare the two teams?Okay Wildcats beat Storm in EDP they were better that day with the players that played in that game and Storm beat wildcats back in the fall, they were better that day with the players that played in that game.What are we trying to prove? I still get lost in all this talk.MF ECNL team will battle the PDA, WC and other ECNL teams with the players they dress for those games.Their reserve teams or B teams or C teams what ever you want to call them will play in NPL.EDP provides something that could be special for our region a format to put ECNL, NE NPL, NYCSL NPL, EDL NPL and NON US Club Soccer teams in the same league for Development or what ever you want to call it. These kids will play and at the end of the day the best team is the team in 1st place.
or if you have a play off the team that wins the post season. Just for the record I hate PLAY OFFS.I love a balanced schedule everyone plays 1 game at home and 1 game on the road - every game is important and at the end of the year the team with the most points is the champion, not the team that won 2 games during an event to claim the league title, but if that's how the league is set up then that is your champion.
True... But you can't come on the blog pumping your chest with a first place in EDL NPL when their are multiple leagues/teams above that level playing better competition(ECNL/NE NPL). It is like coming on here saying you are better than others in the A bracket of a tournament because they placed third and you won the B bracket. An entire group of teams played against better competition above you in the A bracket. Just keeping it in perspective. I think that is why some teams are disliked so much on this board.
9:46 I don't see it like that, because we don't know for sure who's posting we think we might know, but we don't. But I do see your point about the tournament and agree you can only play the flight the tournament puts you in and either you place or you don't and GS is beautiful in that regards because it assigns a flight value based on the GS system success rate of the teams in the flight.EDL NPL starts at u13 for our Girl's age group from what I can find on the websites. NJ Wildcats in my opinion will be the favorites with NYSC if still in EDL and myabe LVU from PA since they did match up against Wildcats at 8v8 and I'm sure both teams look different these days.Will ECNL and NE NPL have better teams than the EDL? ECNL for sure NE NPL maybe maybe not, to soon to tell.EDL and NE NPL will be at the same level league. The teams that win their league deserve to be called that league's champion and their reward is a vacation to the NPL Finals, kids play and Family does some vacation stuff.I'm not a big fan of tournaments, because a team can use guest players that contribute to their success and claim the success as the teams after the guest players go back to their own teams. Not all teams do that but there are teams that do. We know who they are and that's okay - they travel to a tournament they want to win, no shame in that. Again, personally, I would go with my own team and what happens happens.

"ECNL for sure"At this level there are some not so tough ECNL foes.
11:13 - I will take you up on that challenge. At this level our girls would play in the North East if you are from NY, NJ, PA, MA & CT.Besides FC Bucks and Continental FC all the others look tough. Tell me which one is weak.PDA, MF, PennFusion, CFC, FSA, Breakers, FC Stars, EM, Albertson & WC.they will play 22 games against each other plus out of Conference games. SO YES, when you play teams that are this tough, when you go against teams from out of conference that are middle to bottom of the division you will have blow outs. That's not a knock on ECNL. Happens in every sport at every level.Play along who's not so tough and give facts to support your view not just a blank statement.
FSA and albertson are not very strong - CFC also on the weaker side
GS does not really get the tournaments right with the points and that is a flaw. If you place third in a strong A bracket you are not getting near as many points as the winner in the B bracket. Just makes zero sense as the A bracket teams are mostly ALL better than the B bracket teams. The third place team in the A would more than likely win the B bracket. So sometimes being place in that top bracket iss not a good GSS thing. But I would take it playing the better teams and placing third than winning B bracket any day of the week. If not by next year it will be the year after where all ECNL and NE NPL teams will be better than all the rest. Proven over time.....

1:23 you're overly concerned with GS points. Chill out about it. Everyone understands the rankings that result from them are to be taken with a grain of salt. You can still be proud of your daughter's team even if they didn't get 8,000 points this weekend. She's still a good girl.
There's a risk/reward that you're missing...yes, if you finish 3rd in the A bracket you stand to possibly get fewer points than the winner of the B bracket. But if you WIN the A bracket, your ranking stands to jump substantially.
2:26 Dude you have the top 10 teams in NJ mixed up in two flights. The Champion and Finalist are the only 2 that get points from a f team flight.Flight ANJ WildcatsNJ CrushRageNJXNJSA GalaxyFlight BPDA StormMF BlackPDA AjaxTSFIGFASo you are telling me that the 3rd place team in Flight A should get more points than the Winner of Flight B? And you base this on what, because they are in Flight A they must be better? Because the event people said they are in Flight A.
My bad not 2:26 that was for 1:23
You are missing my point completely! I am arguing that GS is NOT the correct measure of teams at the top. Fine for the others but when you start giving out more points for the lower brackets just to give them points it makes no sense. That is why the top teams laugh at the GS peeps on here.....
No. Because the top tournaments usually have the right teams in each flight. It would not be as balanced as you had it. So to redo yours:Flight AStorm NJXMF blackWildcatsAJAXFlight BDragonsCrushTSFIGFARageYES! Third place from A should get more GS points than the B winner.
What tournament are you talking about?
I believe it was a hypothetical example only.
It was hypothetical but it would be some tourney..... Lol!Do we all agree the third place of A deserves more points than first place of B. I think so.
No way. Many of the teams in pool B could compete in the A pool. The argument made earlier was a much clearer difference in each pool. Nice try.
This imaginary tournament you guys invented, has a different name, its called NJ Sate Cup, live with the results, and move.on.org.
I disagree about 3rd place - what if the flights I posted were a real tournament and I was a real tournament director. My point is you place or you don't - if points are so important request to play down.Below is best I can do with the Region 1 State Cup ChampionsNJ = PDA StormCT = FSA FC U12 Girls NavyDE = DELAWARE RUSH DE RUSH '01 (DE) NYE = Kosmos_NikhPAE = Ukrainian Nationals Blasters BlackME = MCU Portland Phoenix EliteMD = MUFC Red 01MA – No u12 State CupNH = SEACOAST UNITED ELITE - DR-NYW = Greater Binghamton FC Select U12 GirlsPAW = Victory ExpressRI = CUMBERLAND UNITED U12 GIRLSRI ss = BAYSIDE FC BOLTS RED 01/02VT = NORDIC SC NORDIC 12 GIRLSVA = PWSI 01 RedWV ss = Fury Dragons

12:21 Because some were deleted already I'm with 9:13 it wasn't like this when the post was made
I think we can officially call Rage for this age group dead. What ever remains of them will be of absolutely no relevance at u13. Just too many girls have moved on to other teams. Time to stop referencing them among the other favorites from this point forward. Biggest beneficiaries appear to be Ajax and SJEB.
Same for Force with biggest beneficiaries appearing to be NJSA Galaxy & Wildcats. Top 3 teams going into 2014/2015 seasons NJX, PDA Storm & Matchfit Black. After that bunch of teams vying to crack the top 5 are Wildcats, NJSA Galaxy, SJEB, Ajax to name a few. Question is can any of those teams crack the top 3? Is there another surprise team out there that has improved so much they can (ie. Crush, IGFA, PDA Dragons, TSF, Copa, Samba)?
Copa?? heard Samba lost a few core players, IGFA is not looking good lately, TSF no clue, but likely better than or as good as SJEB and NJSA. Dragons or Crush will be interesting to watch.
NJSA Galaxy? Are you joking?New team has won nothing and proved nothing at this level.How about you win a significant game or 2 vs top competition before you start trying to spin and inject yourselves into the top 5 in NJ.Better yet how about you PLAY a competitive game or 2 before you start ranking yourselves among the best out there.
NJSA will be a nice team this summer/fall.Give them their due.
7:59 What happened to Rage? Did they lose players? Just started coming on this blog.
Rage lost 7 girls, just moved on. Possibly another 2, I hear. They will not be around in Fall. Some will probably play under the Rage Liberty name which was a combination of u11 and u12 players in the past. Won't be much of a team with what is left of the Freedom players.
10:32 We will see won't we
kind of hard to give a team "their due" when they haven't played as a team yet
So it seems SJEB will be a team to take a look at this Fall. Sounds like they had quite a turnover with players leaving for PDA Shore and Ajax, but brought players in from Rage (and elsewhere?). Appears they will be a new look team to check out.
10:45 Wow 7 girls and 2 more. What a shame team was strong, remember playing them a few times and they moved the ball well. So there is no team come fall anymore?
SJEB lost nobody to PDA Shore. One player to Ajax. Unless it's someone from SJEB West, which is essentially their B team. That doesn't say much for PDA Shore if that's what they're taking on. Either way, the SJEB team you're referring to that gained player(s) from Rage only had one player leave on her own. Anyone else not returning was cut.
1. Will the pre-ecnl teams continue to play in EDP for the Fall/Spring 2014/2015 season?EDP can basically create a division for them to play in so they can measure their development.2.

Will they all be in one division and play home and away? or will they split them up again and play 4 or 5 cross-over games?4. Will NYSC leave EDL NPL for NYCSL NPL?5. Who will challeng NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH in EDL if NYSC is gone? (TSF ACADEMY 01/02 + IGFA aka Valkries), SJEB, LVU?6. Where will AJAX play? Will they be the 2ns team in NE Girls NPL or will PDA also join EDL NPL or NYCSL NPL?7. Who will challenge NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI for the NYCSL NPL crown if NYSC stays in EDL?(NJSA 04 GALAXY + NJSA 04 NPL-01 CEDAR), STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 018.

NYSC is playing NPL, fact.
Anonymous said...NJSA will be a nice team this summer/fall.Give them their due.June 18, 2014 at 10:32 AMIs NJSA putting out two teams in this age group? Cedars and Galaxy? Or are the Manalapan, EB and Force girls all mixing together?
NJSA is due nothing.. This is a group that totally screwed the rest of the teams in the central edp bracket. They couldn't beat the bottom teams in the bracket as Force, so I don't expect them to be any better under a new name.
To 11:47, there was a previous post that said the PDA Shore team would be closed Fusion because it was a combo of several teams and it listed SJEB. They didn't clarify if it was West or not. Sorry for any confusion.
Heard most of NJSA galaxy is force girls, that's why they took over got soccer points for force imperials - assuming NJSA cedar will still be all manalapan, east brunswick, etc
NJSA a lot of talk so far.Walk the walk first then we will see where you rank.Right now you are nowhere as you have not played any games.All ranked teams have earned their spots by their track record vs high level comp.Come back after you have played some games .don't tell us what you WILL DO tell us what you HAVE DONE.As of right now that is NOTHING.
11:59am, #2 - Matchfit black will be pre-ECNL team for u13, NJX will be NE NPL - at u14 it's anyone's guess.
regarding any SJEB players at PDA Shore, here's my best guess. The poster of that comment also mentioned Boca. Former Gakster turned SJEB West turned Boca may be the SJEB player referred to here. If that's the case, that's 4 different teams for that girl in a years time. ...am I way off?
PDA Dragons and Ajax both playing NE Girls NPL in the fall.No info on NYSC staying at EDL or moving to NYCSL NPL.
No Info?Are you for real, I just told you, we are moving, (WE) as in my kids team, what do you want proof???
1243Sounds like Crush in summer of 2012
So Rage team will have a mix of u11and 12 players come fall? Will they continue playing in EDP? Just wondering becuase their younger u11counter part has a strong core of players as well.
1:10, this is what you said:Anonymous said...NYSC is playing NPL, fact.Nobody every questioned if they'd be playing NPL. There are a few different NPLs though, in case you haven't heard. FACT!See what I did there? I said FACT when I was done, so it adds credibility to my statement. Nobody can question me now without looking like an idiot.
if that former NJ Force coach is running NJSA it will be a circus.. FACT
Sorry, my bad, yes NYCSL NPL, FART.
See, I changed a letter to make a funny....
Does anyone want me to break-down our spring season, with witty comments about the teams we have played, got some funny stuff..
"if that former NJ Force coach is running NJSA it will be a circus.. FACT"He is not.FACT.
NJSA had a great winter select season, they won some tournaments up north and were in finals with same players that are there now I believe. I do think they were juggling keepers, but the one they had was pretty good in TeaNeck and West Orange indoor play. I believe coach is not Force coach. Mercer Spurs are a great team, hands down, however to rank that high after almost losing in Ocean tourney and other JAGS teams is tough one - but as long as you win how can you measure if only one goal differential. Win is a win.
NJSA indoor success does not get you ranked in top 5 in NJ.Come on man!At least 10 of your players are on 4 the team in 4 years.You have a lot to prove and a long road to Top 5 in NJ..
Mercer Spurs are a nice team, 'great' is overstating.
Yes NJSA is now the land of Misfit toys. The well travelled travelers. What is the over under on that team staying together, 1/2 season, 1 full season, ?, ?
agreed on hard to judge from winter, and yes top 5 I do not agree on, just saying they do look good from what I have heard. I knew girl who played with them over winter. Mercer Spurs are in top 5 why is my question? They almost lost in final in Ocean and almost lost to a JAGS team in Lakewood recently. Maybe that team was good from Lakewood, cannot tell, Real Crew is name of that team, used to be BOCA team
Early Fall thoughts:Storm, NJX, Wildcats, Ajax, Dragons have picked up players and improved.RAGE, Crusc,NJSA (Force), Samba have lost good players.MF Black, I would think has improved. STA, back to 11v11, looks to be a contender.
Any thoughts on TSF or Jersey Premier Soccer Flash? Don't hear to much about them.
If sje made some cuts and picked up a few strong players.My guess is they have a strong fall season.They seem to have some very good technical players that could move the ball well.Playing them last season you could clearly see they had a core of nice players.From reading the blog looks like they picked up 3 players?And also dropped some?
Is there a reason why certain folks post the same message multiple times?
Gotta be a little quicker so the time stamp is the same if you want it to look authentic.
Blog seems to be having some technical issues lately.
"Any thoughts on TSF" As I said in #5 - I am curious to see if they play under the Valkries United brand with IGFA - that would be very interesting two very good teams merging to make a solid team - Top 5 Non-US Club teams?
the combination of nuts among the parents that make up new njsa team are already starting up nonsense before they even play 1 game outdoors.The one constant with all these parents is at stop after stop they were never happy and still don't believe their kid is anything but a superstar who has been "screwed" out of playing time and starting positions by politics or favoritism at every previous stop..Just can't believe little sally isn't an all-star no matter how many times she doesn't EARN that status on team after team.This group has been Poison on every team they have been a part of and it will continue at NJSA.The parents who undermined both Force and EB causing them to fold in season and caused a fuss on a few other high level teams are all together at NJSA now.These parents as well as their new NJSA teams coach have already trampled on many NPL rules against recruiting players under contract to another club prior to june 1.They caused havoc in EDP Divisions causing forfeits that affected theleague races. They constantly spread gossip and lies about teams folding or losing players, including their own teams that their daughters are still playing for when they have one foot out the door(which they almost always do), and stir up dissension and negativity at every stop.Should be a real interesting show.Not surprised they are already rankings themselves in the top 5 in NJ before they even hit the field.

To those knocking Wildcats, take note: They've stocked up on what was already a solid squad. They beat PDA Storm 2-0, Ajax 2-0, and Dragons 1-0. Not only have they maintained most core players - they've added key starters from former NJ Force Imperials. 12 year old versions of San Antonio Spurs basketball squad - everyone contributes and plays hard. Solid tough old-school coach, too.Most of the rest of Force players went to new Galaxy team - should also be tough/interesting squad, as well.

Promotion desperation. It never gets old.
Does anyone have insight into the value of EDP TIPS program?
can you provide the link for Region 1
What a Joke! teams in Region 1 are very weak. PDA has to walk right over every opponent or this is a complete disappointment
Where are the games for region I to be played
@ 8:46Are you saying Force didn't break up because the coach was skimming the books and got canned and that it was somehow a vast conspiracy?@9:17Easy there coach how's that new kid from CA working into the mix?
9:17 you have just a few more weeks to drop your daily "I beat PDA" posts before U13 starts and then U12 doesn't count anymore (remember when U11 didn't count anymore?). I can't speak for all but I know I will miss them. Hopefully you can win something at U13 so you can post throughout the year. Good luck, we are all pulling for you.
In a few years when we find you curled up on a park bench, covered by newspapers, mumbling "...but in 2014 I beat PDA" I know I will drop a couple of bucks in your cup and have a moment of silence in remembrance of the good ole days.
9:17 from NJSA galaxy, not from wildcats. Tell us how you really feel though PDA.
When they can't talk about the soccer, they engage in personal insults while hiding behind their computers.Brave boys up there at PDA.
Funny thing is poster is pumping chest and impressed at that EDL NPL list. Wow! That league will pale in comparison to the pre ECNL and NE NPL league. But keep on blogging.......
7:19 No one is pumping chest - just listing facts - the winner of the EDL NPL regardless of how strong or not strong it is will be sending it's champion to a National Event.Below is a list of NJ, NY and PA teams - because these are the only states represented on this board, I think. I will gladly add others but I'm not going to do it unless we have regulars from other states.I didn't use my opinion - I used GS and their points for the order. I did notice some teams have multiple accounts - either they don't know or they know and don't care.Pre-ECNL20,505 PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY STORM19,673 EAST MEADOW HOTSHOTZ17,162 PENN FUSION SA '01G ECNL15,574 WORLD CLASS FC '01 CHARLTON11,861 MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC BLACK (LADY FALCONS)10,345 ALBERTSON FURY '01 RED1,986 CONTINENTAL FC DELCO ECNL '01452 COUNCIL ROCK UNITED FC BUCKS ESPRIT ECNLNE Girls NPL24,493 HOLMDEL FC NJX CELTIC16,475 PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY AJAX7,034 PDA DRAGONS6,062 WORLD CLASS FC '01HAMM4,925 EAST MEADOW SKY BLUE1,148 ALBERTSON 2001 FURY BLUE 732 CONTINENTAL FC BARCA '01F NPL 190 COUNCIL ROCK UNITED SOCCER U12 GIRLS NPL 01EDL NPL16,836 NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH9,050 TSF ACADEMY 01/027,568 LEHIGH VALLEY UNITED LVU 01 GIRLS3,704 MANHATTAN SC G01 PRIDE2,947 PITTSGROVE SC RUSH 01/022,710 FC COPA ACADEMY LIMA1,984 SOUTH JERSEY ELITE BARONS '011,130 MARYLAND RUSH RUSH 01G 310 SMITHTOWN STARSNo Team NJ STALLIONS ACADEMYNO Team JERSEY UNITED SOCCER SPARTANSNYCSL NPL16,056 NEW YORK SC G0114,284 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI9,725 NJSA 04 GALAXY5,477 STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 013,108 PARSIPPANY SC PARSIPPANY NPL2,783 BRENTWOOD (FORMERLY EAST ISLIP) DYNAMITE2,654 MASSAPEQUA HURRICANES1,386 ISA 01 NPL 654 QUICKSTRIKE FC 02'S 191 NEW YORK RUSH PATRIOTS 2002 10 PRINCETON SA ATHLETICONON-US Club Team - possible region 1 teams15,373 RAGE FC PREMIER FREEDOM15,314 1776 UNITED XTREMES14,456 ATLETICO GU1110,500 PENN LEGACY FC 01 BLACK9,500 UKRAINIAN NATIONALS BLASTERS BLACK8,754 SDFC SAMBA8,176 FC REVOLUTION FORCE7,894 INTERNATIONAL GIRLS FUTBOL ACADEMY 01-027,354 JERSEY PREMIER SOCCER FLASH6,636 SABA BROOKLYN CITY
Why do you keep posting Njx picked up players? They haven't picked up and nobody has come to mf tryouts. 60 kids at tryouts divided by the 3 teams they have, njx mf black and mf blue equals no new talent. Lots of teams lost players and noone interested in mf. What does that say?
8:29, thanks for the info.I think Atletico will go US Club and join NYCSL NPL.
it's looking like the NPL's are organizing themselves to minimize travel.What do you think? WIll the NYCSL NPL trade the NJ teams to the EDL NPL for the NY teams?At the time the NJ teams joined NYCSL NPL the EDL NPL wasn't around.NJSA 04, STA, Parsippany & PSA forNYSC, Manhattan, Smithtown

Well....MF Black and NJX not adding players signals they are STACKED. MF Blue not adding signals top players have zero interest in that B level squad
True or false?Crush played the toughest schedule in NJ at U12.....
Stacked? Stacked would mean players are interchangable and there is no drop off on substitutuons. Don't think that is the case at either of those teams. Maybe if they took the best from both teams? Closest team in nj to being stacked is storm.
how many girls has storm acquired this year at this age? Are they just siphoning off the top players from every other team?
9:14I agree Crush's tournament and EDP schedule were tougher than other teams in NJ. Played Stars, Jeff cup and Delco. Only MAPS fall challenge could be considered an "easier" tournament.
This is no knock on Crush but heir Fall Schedule was much weaker than their Spring Schedule.

Since you made me look, I compared Crush to a team that got no love last week. PDA Dragons played 9 fewer games than Crush and I count 9 games vs top GS teams while Crush played 19 against top teams.

I think Crush just played a harder schedule in the Spring, you can see from the results.
my understanding is that they had a lot of injuries in the spring season.
11:31You're a CLOWNLook at the level Dragons are playing at. Those are low level clubs they faced.
Dragons 3 Crush 2 in State Cup. Enough said.
Is it true that Crush lost their best player to PDA again?
If it was to Dragons it would be a story
I'm a clown? Actually, I'm a good dancer. I just listed 4 teams they both played Dragons had 1 more win plus a head 2 head win vs Crush.You can only play the teams you are scheduled to play and all those low level teams well they didn't lose to any of them. Now how about Crush when they playedMASSAPEQUA SOCCER CLUB NPL-01 BLUE (NYE) 0-1NORTH ROCKLAND STING NPL-01 BLUE (NYE) 0-4Google doesn't lie pal. I'm not saying Dragons are better than Crush - I'm just saying they get no love as a B team and when you compare them to a Solid A team not much of a difference.
Of course I'm only talking about style of play since I have never seen either team play. I couldn't tell you which one can connect more than 4 passes before they take a shot. I can't tell you which of them can play out of the back with out kicking the ball long. I just used google.
Dragons 3 Crush 2 in State Cup game. Enough said again. Move on.
Talking about results not style of play. NYC public school system at work once again.
Crush A team didnt play those games vs Massapequa and N RocklandGo shine your red nose, clown.
Both Dragons and Crush lost players to Storm

2:29 thanks for stepping up but 8:50am blames wildcats for every post he doesn't like.Constant insults and personal attacks. Never a post about soccer, results or anything positive to contribute. Soon enough they will be attacking the team and coach at their latest stop.Give them 3 months.
1:44 it Doesn't matter what you say - because they played it under the NJ Crush A team account. So Tsunami got the L's. But we all know results don't matter at this age. Bozo out or I'll be Ronald for you if you like him better.

7:53, actually that is not always true, but in this case I think it is...
Does anybody know what this flight will be worth?
should be a walk in the park for NYSC
Each tournament's flight is assigned a value based on the top 5 teams in the flight. The points contributed by each team is calculated based on their national rank. The point breakdowns are as follows:Teams in the top 1% contribute10000 points.Teams in the top 2% contribute 7500 points.Teams in the top 3% contribute 5000 points.Teams in the top 5% contribute 2500 points.Teams in the top 7% contribute 1250 points.Teams in the top 10% contribute 625 points.Teams in the top 25% contribute 313 points.Teams in the top 50% contribute 156 points.Teams in the lower 50% contribute 78 points. The value of the top ranking teams in the flight are then averaged to generate the flight's final value or pool. If I'm doing this correctly it looks like the flight is worth 6,000 points.NYSC brings 10,000 pts, every other team brings 5,000. Top five (basically any combination that includes NYSC) total 30,000 points, divided by 5 would equal 6,000 for the flight.Anyone want to confirm?
Thanks for the info!
9:32I agree- walk in the park for NYSC. But that is their MO for got soccer points.
Why so sure on the easy NYSC win? Some decent teams there.
there are decent teams, but NYSC is very good. Should be easy wins

Looks like Hamilton Helicopter parents are all over the blog again.Let's see Hamilton, Ajax, Wildcats and now NJSA. All 4 moves/teams in last 4 years.They are currently blaming the wildcats coach for all their issues( always the latest stop), but soon it will be new NJSA coaches turn.Honeymoon won't last long it never does. These parents coaching players from the sidelines, berating refs(even got their own teams coach yellow carded because of these parents ref abuse), engaging the other teams parents, cornering the coach after practice to complaining about playing time, refusing to make commitment to attend ANY of the teams winter indoor training when entire rest of team attended 2x per week yet expecting to start first scrimmage out of the box in the spring and making a loud scene on sidelines when daughter started scrimmage on bench,, asking to be moved out of defensive midfield and into forward position even though playing full game(coach granted request-started player at forward every game in spring-still negative and unhappy),walking away from team with 2 league games left in spring season and team fighting for playoff spot and team had injuries and short bench-attacking coach and team on this blog while daughter still playing for wildcats-we no longer have all the excitement you guys brought to our team and parent sidelines.New coach will be cornered in the parking lot after practice and skewered on the blog before long.Next Place and coach they are happy with will be the first one they have been happy with.Guys please move on with your new team and try and find a fit for your daughters. You have moved on by choice and so have we so focus on your new home and stop attacking us and blaming us for posts negative to your new team.Believe me we are not focused on NJSA Galaxy. We hope you will all be happy together.good luck and understand your team has enemies and some coaches who may be bitter about some of your families who helped fold their teams but we wildcats parents are very happy you have moved on and we have some peace and quiet on our sidelines .We do wish you can finally find some happiness with your latest team. try and enjoy your new team and stop poisoning every team you go to. Ajax told us you were just as disruptive there before coming to us.
12:16, dude, stop mincing words, you are too cryptic. I am pretty sure every team has a family that they wish would just go away, for whatever reason, its part of the soccer landscape, and just reflects some parental insecurity, about their child, and themselves.Consider yourself lucky, if this situation has occurred to your team, most (PP) problem parents are more than happy complaining to the same people...
Can confirm that these parents caused major issues when they were with Ajax - FACT.Mothers instigated and stoked petty and unnecessary spats and rivalries among our players, even using unkind nicknames for players who they considered not good enough(really players who were taking playing time from their daughters).One of these mothers cornered and verbally attacked our coach in the most loud and vile language and truth is that family was already being removed from team by club for following fall year when they moved on to wildcats.
The points contributed by each team is calculated based on their national rank. What % is there National rank = the points they bring to the flight.
Sounds like NJSA Teams will be a lot of fun this year.
Some might consider how wildcat coach conducts himself abusive but if that's what u want for your kid fine but just mind your own business then. And im sure Ajax filled you in after screeching how crappy that team is all year long. Get a life coach.
@12:40There were more than a couple that shouldn't have even been on the team but PDA just can't pass up the $. Broken promises year after year can make some people react innapropriatly. You want to address not having refs assigned for games, last minute inexplainable substitutions and training that rivals mid-level travel teams.It is PDA but since it was not North the only things PDA were the dues and uniform.No addressing of players is appropriate ever.
@12:16You forgot to add all those extra kids you invite to team training and pocket the $have for while the team paid for the field time. Why would someone want to participate in your Gypsy money schemes. Also forgot to mention in your post the extra fee you tacked on for the second day of training but whose counting $.....
Only extra fee charged was when extra day of training per week in offseason was requested by parents and provided over and above what club paid coach for. You never even the club provided 1x per week winter off season training at no extra charge so what is your beef.You moved on and to each his own.What purpose to complain about a team you are no longer a part of.
BOCA 2 WC 1
1:46 if training provided at PDA Ajax was only at level of mid level teams than how to explain that Ajax had much more success as a team(not to mention a much happier and united tam and sideline) in the past year after you moved on and team had same coach and trainer.And your comments about picking undeserving players for team and unexplained late game substitutions only reinforces earlier posts about your inappropriate behavior as parents.Look in the mirror and you will see any coaches nightmare.
So management of PDA club and and coaching and training of Ajax team caused your inappropriate behavior?A bit of a stretch wouldn't you agree?
How about moving on with our new teams and look forward.Try and make your new situations work for your families and teams.
That may explain the recent Wildcat/Ajax posts made by certain individual(s) to try and stir something between those 2 teams since they apparently left both teams unceremoniously.
Comments like this crack me up"There were more than a couple that shouldn't have even been on the team but PDA just can't pass up the $."Shouldn't have been on the team but played better than others at tryouts to make the team. So, if better players were on the team in your opinion wouldn't they also have to pay money? So how is the Club/Team after money again if they were filling roster spots?I don't follow.
The disgruntled parents should reread their posts slowly and carefully. In the last 12 months you have bounced from 2 of the 5 top teams in NJ.your litany of complaints runs the whole gamut from management and administration of these clubs to the level of training and coaching, to costs, to even choices for roster spots, substitution patterns, field availability, ref assigning, etc, etc, etc.Yet both of these teams have gone on to even greater success since you have moved on and have had no problem replacing your players with players of at least equal or greater ability.At what point and after how many moves do you at least acknowledge some part of the responsibility for your continued unhappiness at every stop? Can it continue to be everyone else's fault?
So tired of hearing about PDA and Wildcats. FACT.
2:46 more parents than just these would benefit from reading your post.
Ajax team doing just fine with their coach .Thanks for still caring though.Move on!
