2:45 I would disagree with you the GDA will be for the special few that are willing to sacrifice 10 months of the year 4 days a week not counting games and travel for the love of the game that have parents that can do the same. Not as easy as you think it also depends on the clubs that get a GDA and where they are located. The next best thing will be the ECNL since none of the NJ teams are playing RCL to advance to the USYSA National League.While others are running for the hills - others have them on their list. If PDA is option A I'm sure MF is option B until the GDA clubs are announced then everything turns upside down again.
Good point about Flight 9 at Jeff Cup, it is still Jeff Cup. I actually know a U15 team that was declined entry to the tournament. And they play EDP 2nd division. So good for boca.
My daughter’s team played Boca in the fall, and to be honest there weren’t any Hot Mom’s that I saw, has this become an urban myth? Maybe I should of paid more attention to game, maybe not.
4:22 We played them in the fall and there was a couple that blue jeans were made for. Also, there wasn't any mommies stuffed into yoga pants like rice at a chinese take out (how do they get all that rice in there). So team Boca gets points for both, which in a world of goal differential gives them a plus 6. PDA Ajax plus 3NJ Rush evenWildcats -11
So I went to BOTN and checked it out (never heard of it before). Same bashing crap on there as here recently with MFA. Another unhappy parent. Remember people we live in a free country. Finish the season and move elsewhere, or don't finish the season, stop bitching and move on now.
7:26pmI am leaving, just like many players are. Justing riding it out
8:41 Nice spelling "Justing riding it out" - (Yes I am that guy)BTW, I am staying put, and I am probably glad you're leaving....
For all the people guessing about who is getting the DA's. Copa is locked in as one of the clubs getting a DA for a few reasons including their relationship and link now to Sky Blue. There has been many kids showing up lately for ID at Copa including MF kids. I wonder how they are going to do the other DA?
Why do you think only 2 DAs? Boys has more tgan that.
So how should an NPL parent feel when their daughter gets to practice and there's eight girls from another club practicing with her team? It obvious they are there for the ecnl coach to make a decision on who he likes. Should displeasure of this be brought up to the coach? Or will that be looked at as sour grapes?
There aren't many competitive teams talked about on here where new girls aren't coming every year. That is just the way it is. No use saying anything.
1002 keep telling yourself that, GDA club's will be chosen next next spring so no one knows yet who is in or not. There is no guarantee yet so you can market COPA all you want if they don't get it I'm sure you'll jump to the next club that has it.
Here is the deal, mental toughness is an integral part of sports. For better or worse teams know the players they have and want to evaluate new players who have shown interest. I have even see times where they scrimmage inter club and current players don't start and play less. Does that seem right, no. But kids have to understand what's going on an not have it bother them. With most coaches talking to them in season about your kid is a mistake.
9:11 is that you again Nazi?
PDA will have their say. They more than anything else will decide what the DAs in NJ are. If they have a DA, it's doubtful there will be another within a 35 mile radius. Will be one in Bergen.
9:11 Yes, but that term does not endear me, to me.
Happy Easter! Try and focus today and tomorrow on what is really important.
Got soccer #1 team falls, doesn't even make EDP OPEN cup quarterfinals. Just goes to show...
Just shows you what?
Shows you that Got Soccer rankings are a joke. Keep bragging about being #1 because you're not even close.
This is great, beaten by the team that you always borrow players from hahaha
I was at open cup match today. Great game by both teams. Girl scored hat trick just great day for her. 3-2. Great soccer on great day. Boca is just a very good team. No denying. NJCSA is very good as well. It was will of the players today that made difference.
Here we go again, the Manalapan/NJCSA basher. Looking at NJCSA history, they are just coming off an impressive weekend beating STA 3-0 and both tying and losing by just one to Crush. Don't see any reason to bash them at this time. Maybe not #1 but making their way up there
Thank you 3:38
Didn’t Marzaspam’s best player leave for MF?
5:23 their best player is #9, she still plays with them
3:38 let's see if the results back your statement. First you do know they beat STA 'B" team 3-0 not the NPL team right? I wouldn't say making their way up - results say they are an average team that benefited from EDP gotsoccer points or shall I just say playing in 11 gotsoccer events. If they make it to Colorado or Texas for the National events via NPL & NCS then I will agree moving on up but as of now it's Quantity not Quality, sorry.W22 T4 L10 GF69 GA382:3 JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC FUSION (NJ)2:3 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI 01 NPL (NJ)2:3 HULMEVILLE SC DYNAMO (PAE)1:2 RAMAPO VALLEY SC TORNADOS '02 (NYE)0:1 TSF ACADEMY 01/02G (NJ)0:1 YANKEE UNITED F.C.

8:14 yes I realize it was not the STA NPL team which they beat 3-0, Crush was the NPL team. Either way it was a good weekend for them. I'm just saying they are a good team, state champs, and should be given some credit. Yes, yes I also know that the "best" teams didn't play in state cup so it doesn't really mean anything to you. I respectfully disagree.
8:49 it's all good. I listed for you their u14 wins the high profile wins are vs calvert and nysc who both wish they can start u14 over again. Outside of those teams nobody high profile, NCS champ yes let's see how they do at the Region1 event in Barboursville, West Virginia (June 30 - July 5, 2016). I agree it's an accomplishment to reach this event. Just like I said it was an accomplishment for NJ Wildcats last year. They didn't advance out of the group stage.GS 4 Life
Since my tag is GS4Life - figured I would do a little NJ research.PDA Storm is head and sholders better than any of the teams in the top 10.If any of you guys know their team manager - tell them to merge the PDA PRE-ECNL account GS created for them with their Storm account that would give them20,825 GS points in only 4 events. It took all the other teams 3 times the events to be in the same conversation.8:49 That's a good team, it took NJCSA 7 more events to have 2K points more.what's that about $5,000 to hold that #1 GS title? I don't have a beef with calling you State Champ since you are andyou will be until next October.GS PTS (# of events/leagues)22,875 (11/2) - NJCSA ELITE-MANALAPAN18,600 (13/2) - NJ WILDCATS GALAXY17,856 (12/2) - NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI 01 NPL 17,697 (11/2) - SJEB '01G NPL15,961 (9/2) - NEW JERSEY RUSH 01 GIRLS BLUE NPL15,875 (3/0) - PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY STORM15,221 (13/2) - REAL NJSC SOUNDERS14,694 (11/3) - NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH 0213,059 (10/2) - GPS NJ CENTRAL U14G12,890 (12/2) - STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01
PS I wish the PDA tournaments gave GS points like in 2014 - this year's top flight would have the below teams and NEFC/Storm would rack up even more points.#4 NEFC ELITE U14 GIRLS#32 PDA STORM (they should be higher - have 2 accounts)#33 LEHIGH VALLEY UNITED 01 GIRLS#58 MASSAPEQUA NPL LIL' ROWDIES#63 STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01
Last time again, PDA does not care about GS points.
From what I've seen manalapan has one play. They have a fast girl hang out with the opposing team's last defender "ready to make a run" then kick it like crazy to her. And their goalie is very good.
PDA AND Match Fit could care less about Got Soccer points.NJCSA is a nice town-ish team, just 1 kid is good enough to play on one of the top NPL/ECNL teams. The rest of the team is playing to support one player. This is very common knowledge in the New Jersey soccer world.They play very soft teams and tournaments to rack up useless points, they borrow players, circumvent rules for GS points, and almost all of their kids handcuffed to their team. It's a mind-fu(k that they're telling unknowing parents so they don't abandon this mess. I hope the NJCSA parents realize that now is the time to get out before it's too late. Years of playing Mommy/Daddy ball has been a colossal waste of their kids, and their own time, and it's time to make a move... The rest of that team have been pawns for the betterment of one player. 2001/2002 kids can do so much better than this dumpster fire.You're wasting the few precious years of your daughter's time, and if a parent is okay with this, then good for them, and I stand corrected.
Very accurate description of this NJCSA team. The leader is the former Manalapn coach who fiddled with that team until that imploded. The one player you mention is a top performer. Keep her out of this. She is a player and not involved in the dealings of the mom and the other adults.But the parents shoulder some of the fault too. They allow themselves to be suckered by the suckees. They get high on victories and saying we're ranked #1 or #2. And all for what? So they can tell their friends that their kid is on a highly ranked team. Then they watch the game and they hardly realize that their daughter is a non-factor in the game. That's the body blow here. Their kids are not developing and not contributing to the result. They are running and kicking.It takes two to tango. The sucker and the suckee. Sadly, the suckers are easy marks. Like the tourists in NYC who stop and play 3 card monty and then look befuddled when it's over and their money is gone.But we're #1! Yay us!
Just one correctionNJCSA Manalapan and NJ Crush NPL actually tied twiceThe second one went to PKs and Crush prevailed
10:55 Last time we are not PDA so who cares if they care or don't care - the team manager is a parent just like us and has nothing to do with what PDA cares about - all PDA should care about is training their players period. They proved they don't care about GS when they stripped their 2015 event from GS. So yes, we get they don't care in your oppinion. I say they do care because their 2016 kickoff has GS app for teams to apply see link https://events.gotsport.com/forms/app/Default.aspx?EventID=51128!! So they want to use GS to get $$$$$. So either they don't know that the GS points were taken away from the 2015 event (they can't be that stupid) or they did it on purpose which took away points from many teams only to use the software again to get more money. Why is it that only PDA and Match Fit could careless? Do they care about setting up a PDP for their NorthEast Girls NPL? Nope because PDPs are ODP events and if NPL players were worthy they would be on ECNL team, right? SO what exactly is the benefit for playing on teams other than ECNL at PDA/Machfit since they care less?>6:22 you from NYC? let me guess you used to hang out on St. Marks and thought you were cool or was it the "village" or maybe it was the limelight if you could get in right? There are suckers everywhere my friend - starting with all of us that check and post on this blog with me being #1
Apparently, PDA leadership, parents and managers don't care about GS.
My daughters team has played NJCSA a few times. My daughter always plays the whole game. She is not great but top 8 on squad of 16 so she plays. PL, PDA, Calvert, NYSC, STA npl, 1776, FC Virginia. Just some other teams my daughter has played against that are much better tactically than NJCSA. I understand NJCSA was missing starting keeper yesterday. I never like that excuse. We miss players also due to illness injury or grandmas 90th party. I also think part of what you do in life is figure out how to be the best. And truthfully NJCSA and Boca have done that in different forms recently. Boca was spring us club champs. NJCSA is revered for sure due to ranking and bid to ncs
10:14 so they only care about GS money?So they bait the teams to think they are getting GS points then they don't give them? A little shaddy no? If you don't care why use the app? PDA 2016 Spring Kickoffhttps://events.gotsport.com/forms/app/Default.aspx?EventID=51128!!I just wanted to see Storm merge their accounts to show all the other teams Quality over Quantity any day of the week. A much easier sell when you want 18+ players. But you are right I don't care but they apparently do when it comes to GS $$$ not points. It is a business they can tell you they don't care but if it walks like a duck

How does the NJCSA look for next year? Is the birth year change going to take the team apart?
Are any teams merging for fall ? FC Copa having a team down south NJ out of Rowan University . I can see teams merging to compete but who?
What baffles me is looking up boca they are in EDP division 2 this spring? How does that happen? I would make a very strong bet they are going to run the field and you will have 4-0 6-0 scoring going on. Not good for either teams. Looks like they were in Division 1 and lost a few games, but to drop them to 2 is a big mistake and will not work well for EDP. They were in a tough division with 1776, Calvert, PL, Rage, Harford, HFC.
Pro/Rel means you drop the bottm team from D1 and promote the top team from D1.EDP didn't do anything tho them they did it to themsleves.Relegated - 8: JERSEY UNITED SOCCER SPARTANS 01/02G NPL Promoted - 1: SOUTH CENTRAL PREMIER SPIRIT Relegated - 8: FC COPA ACADEMY G01 NPL LIMA Promoted - 1: WALL SC WAVE Relegated - 8: JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC FUSION Relegated - 9: BETHESDA STORM 01 Promoted - 1: SEVP BLACK THUNDER EDP gave bethesda a pass and relegated Boca instead.EDP would rather have Bethesda "B" team rather than Boca in D1.
Question for the group is it a waste of time to take my daughter to the second round of ODP tryouts or should she just go anyway. Is ODP a waste of time or does it provide value
Once you get into the U16 phase of ODP, its a very good value. A little less money grabbing at that stage and more of the best players playing together.

PDA taking no risks that their ECNL team gets beat by any of the Northeast NPL teams. They wouldn't but it's still pretty funny as there are clearly stronger teams in F2 than some in F1. It's funny.
NJCSA has 8 2001s on their roster of 23
4:46pm so what did PDA Shore do differently than BOCA to stay in Div 1? BOCA was in a tougher division and had same w/l results. Plus has topped PDA in all games against. BOCA also has beaten several others in both Central Div 1 and North Div 1 on numerous occasions. Not doing all the statistics at this point, but looking at it, I would assume they have a winning record verse all Division I teams over the past year. Fair to say they did poorly in Div 1 South and appear inconsistent but maybe consideration should have been given for Div 1 Central for this season is all I'm saying. This season will likely be a waste for them as well as the teams they face.
Ajax is undefeated in the NE NPL and Storm wouldn't lose to them so doubt there is a concern there. They have more depth than any NPL team. The tournament field is pretty weak, but some F1 teams could be switched with some F2s. Obviously the game to watch will be Storm / NEFC.
Maybe they just wanted to give the lower level teams a chance to enjoy the moms.
The Dragons look like they have a gimme game playing FC Bucks. How did they get in 2nd flight? Are there only 2 flights? Man, this is a bad tournament!!!!
They created this mess by removing GS points last year and Storm not playing. They had 5 flights with 4 teams in each flight not getting points. Should be no surprise the teams didn't show up this year. They don't have to care about GS points but the teams that do didn't show up. Last year we read about how deep this event was not the case this year.
Good that the three NPL teams will get a chance to compete with PDA Storm.
Where are the flights posted for the Spring Kickoff?
Region 1 CLEmpire United Rochester 1Penn Legacy 0
9:53 That most likely is the reason why. Especially the really cute one with the little ...........
That's totally inappropriate...but tell me more...
@4:46 The boca relegation is strange. They actually beat Betheseda. Maybe the coach requested the relegation for some reason? They were accepted at Jeff Cup, but perhaps being shunned for not having D1 teams at the girls level ever. This is one of the few boca girls teams that ever did well. Boca is for boys side I think more than girls. That is what I have heard. No we do not play for boca, but play against them. I do think they will beat and run the division they are in, we have played against them with no success btw. Then the whole pda shore thing, I know they just beat pda shore, apparently beat them twice? But again, PDA gets in because of the name. Very strange if you ask me, political to say the least about edp, would you not say something is wrong 4:46?
1:43 i would agree -also with 1776, PL and Harford all opting out - I don't think there was need to relegate at all. No need to bring PDA into the conversation as they "Shore" were in another division (head 2 head means nothing when it comes to league play). However, I do believe Bethesda was given a bye because of name as they finished in 9th - last place not Boca
I do admire Boca and Wall for that matter. Local teams playing at the highest level and winning. I pay attention and it is interesting to say the least.
I am not familiar with Boca, have not seen them play and haven't seen the moms, but I just looked through gotsoccer history to see what the fuss is about and couldn't find a single win that would appear significant. Who have they beaten in the last year that you would say is a real good win? Not disrespecting, just don't see it.
We played Boca and they were a much better team at the end of the season than in the beginning (isn't that the goal). Are they capable of beating top tier teams on a consistent basis? Don't think so, but they do play hard the whole game no matter what the score. So the coach must be doing something right.
Many on this board talk trash about NE NPL. Same people praising Boca? Boca lost to WC NPL @ Jeff cup. WC NPL is one of the middle pack in NE NPL.... Isn't this telling something?
Well since Boca was relegated to Flight 2 in EDP this season that may very well be telling. Boca is terrible. All the talk about them is just their coach selling wolf tickets(BS). Truth is they are losing some of the few decent players they have as Daddy Coach politics has become as tiresome as it is at NJCSA Elite. Run while you can. Boca is a sinking ship.
Agreed, It is all about showcasing your daughter for college starting in the fall whether 2002(U15) or 2001(U16).You need to get on a team playing in highest possible flights where your player can earn good time.
6:21 Its tells you how far showing a little class during games goes. Boca parents accepted loses as learning experiences for their players, not screaming at the refs or other parents during games. The ones you mentioned.....not so much. Don't be so jealous of the slight praise Boca is getting, they at least are aware of their limitations, many on here are not.
Announcing SJEB Rush03/29/2016, 1:00pm EDT By SJEBMerger Announcement - South Jersey Elite Barons & NJ Rush Join Forces to Form a National Contender Tuesday, March 29th, 2016, South Jersey, NJ – New Jersey Rush and South Jersey Elite Barons (SJEB) announced today a partnership agreement that will see the showcase age groups (U15-U19) of the two largest academy clubs in South Jersey merge to form a super club expected to compete on the national stage. The combined college showcase age groups will operate as SJEB Rush.The two organizations will immediately begin to transition activities by combining the rising birth year 2002 - 1998 teams, with unified service delivery beginning this April for tryouts of the 2016-17 seasonal year. The U14 & younger age groups will remain untouched for this upcoming year and stay as the South Jersey Elite Barons and NJ Rush separately. NJ Rush teams out of Hamilton Township, NJ will also be unaffected by the merger.By combining forces, SJEB Rush will provide the highest level of competitive soccer for South Jersey players in their college showcase years on both the Boy’s and Girl’s sides. In addition to providing opportunities for players at the highest levels to compete on the national stage, SJEB Rush will offer multiple high level teams at each age group, allowing for a custom fit for all serious players looking to showcase their talents for college coaches.SJEB Rush will have a website with the following domain names - www.SJEBRush.org and www.SJEBRush.com.
9:34 I have no idea what you are talking about. I am not a WC parent. I just checked result of Jeff cup and Boca lost to WC and WC is middle pack of NE NPL, which many here bashing as 2nd league of ECNL. My point was to criticize NE NPL bashers as the league has good quality. Yes, I got it. WC parents must be classless based on your comment. I also got you left Richmond with sour taste. WC parents - classless. Boca parents - sore losers
Has anyone noticed that all the PDA Storm games in the Spring Kickoff are on turf while the rest of the bracket is on the crappy fields atoms the corner? Are they afraid to play on grass?
Rumor is WC NPL has improved with new trainer while their ECNL is struggling thus far with same change.Of course they can use the entire WC roster for either team, so that helps.ECNL team did lose a very good player to GFA

8:59 – Your stats are not helping your case. Based on your info, NE NPL is an amazing 11-7-9 with 28 GF and 31 GA against PA, NY & NJ “A” teams. Only 2 of the 8 listed NE NPL teams have winning records, PF and FC Stars, and FC Stars has played just once against the PA, NY & NJ competition. Continental is a stellar 0-3 against the competition. Unless your post was intended as sarcasm, you need better evidence to trump the NE NPL bashers.
I also reviewed loss wins for boca, and have reviewed them often being local to the team. I count over 10 Division 1 teams they beat in last year. Including. TSF, SJEB twice, PDA Shore twice. NJCSA twice. Rage, HFC, Pipeline. Pumas. Bethesda. Ramapo. I am not sure about the other teams, I see Copa defeated and others I am not sure about rankings. Some of these games were shut outs so not close as you might say. PDA shore pales in comparison looking at their history. don't want to bore you. Daddy politics will reign, but local to the shore area not much besides pda shore and wildcats. Where do you go? I see the merger, maybe that would form a shore area team?
Looking at above scores, many close games. WC tied with Wildcats. Boca beat CFC. WC is a good team, not middle of pack? Wildcats I think are slipping in general.
10:06 pda shore I don't consider as option, it's only name definitely not level of play. What merger do you speak of?
10:06. If you have to include PDA Shore on your list of accomplished wins it really diminishes credibility. Sorry
9:34 first of all. I'm not a NJ parent. Just one who has seen both teams in action. And how both handle loses. Dumbass
9:48 you just did that for me - if you are a soccer guy - who has played the game or a casual fan of the game then you know 27 games played with a -3 goal differential proves my point. No drop off as you and the Bashers want to make it look like.
9:48 you made me think about your post you are right that was only one side so if i took some random "A" teams from PA, NJ & NY and compared them to the same teams the NorthEast girls NPL teams played - we have the below.YMS BANSHEES (w2, l2, gd 0)PENN FUSION SA '01G NPL (PAE) 0-1NJ WILDCATS GALAXY (NJ) 0-1PENN FUSION SA '01G NPL (PAE) 4-3PA CLASSICS ACADEMY 01 (PAE) 2-1PA CLASSICS ACADEMY 01 (w1, l1, gd +2)YARDLEY MAKEFIELD SOCCER YMS BANSHEES (PAE) 1-2PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY AJAX (NJ) 3-0NJCSA ELITE-MANALAPAN (w4, t1, l5, gd +2)JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC FUSION (NJ) 2-3STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01 (NJ) 0-2NJ WILDCATS GALAXY (NJ) 5-0NJ WILDCATS GALAXY (NJ) 0-0STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01 (NJ) 0-2TSF ACADEMY 01/02G (NJ) 0-1HBC SPARK (NYE) 1-0RAMAPO VALLEY SC TORNADOS '02 (NYE) 1-2JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC FUSION (NJ) 3-1CONTINENTAL FC NPL '01F (PAE) 2-1 MANHATTAN SC G01 PRIDE NPL (w0, t5, l2, gd -2)LAGRANGE RAGE (NYE) 2-3NJ WILDCATS GALAXY (NJ) 0-1HBC SPARKS (NYE) 2-2NJCSA ELITE (NJ) 1-1STA NPL-01 (NJ) 0-0LAGRANGE RAGE (NYE) 0-0QUICKSTRIKE FC NPL-01 (NYE) 0-0NEW YORK SC G01 (w2, l5, gd -4)HFC READY '01 (PAE) 1-2PA CLASSICS ACADEMY 01 (PAE) 1-4YARDLEY MAKEFIELD SOCCER YMS BANSHEES (PAE) 0-1RAMAPO VALLEY TORNADOS 02 (NYE) 2-1QUICKSTRIKE FC NPL-01 (NYE) 1-2STA NPL-01 (NJ) 1-3QUICKSTRIKE FC NPL-01 (NYE) 4-1-------------------------Over all w9, t6, l15, gd -2 - I guess that 11-7-9 -3 for the B teams doesn't look so bad does it?
When your playing the "B" teams from other leagues? I guess and applause is necessary and needed.
5:10 you're such a pimp. What are these "A" teams you speak of?NJCSA ELITE-MANALAPAN is a NJ NCS champ going to the Region 1 event. Come on Who were you thinking? Come on Keeping it to NY/PA/NJ what teams should I use that have the same common opponents at U14 since you don't want me to use all of 2015 right?
Okay if Manhattan is a B team then so is 1776 who's #2 in their RCL division.MANHATTAN SC G01 PRIDE NPL1:0 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI 01 NPL (NJ)3:1 OAKWOOD SC (CT)1776 UNITED FC XTREME0:5 OAKWOOD SC (CT)0:0 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI 01 NPL (NJ)
Okay let's knock another team out. Who's your "A" list of teams? Manhattan has the edge on Oakwood, 1776 & FC Frederick what teams from PA/NY/NJ should I have used? MANHATTAN SC G01 PRIDE NPL1:0 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI 01 NPL (NJ)3:1 OAKWOOD SC (CT)FC FREDERICK '011:2 OAKWOOD SC (CT)0:1 PDA AJAX (NJ)1:2 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI 01 NPL (NJ)
1776 is no longer considered an "A" level team. That being said, they would crush Manhattan.
7:52 you have no clue about BOCA and are posting nonsense. They haven't lost any players, nobody is leaving, it is a very tight knit team and all the players and parents get along. In fact they are almost entirely 2002s, with one 2001 and one 2003 on the team so will have no impact by the age group change. My daughter has guested for them bc they had injuries and it's a great environment, nothing sinking. So try again.
^oh and regarding their 1-0 loss to WC NPL, my daughter still stays in contact with several of the girls and they were very upset after that loss as they outplayed WC and stayed in the attacking third but missed 5-6 solid scoring chances (hitting post or mistouches on easy goals). I guess that's what happens when you're 13. But instead of making excuses like so many do on here, they just take the experience and move on. Maybe you should learn something from them as you seem a little disgruntled
Do you have to tell your coach if you are going to a try out at another club? Our club has said we must tell them if we are going to other try outs. They said it is a small community and they will find out from the coaches at other clubs when they "hang out" together. Can you share thoughts, opinions, experiences on this topic?
oh PAGS guy -1776 got crushed by Oakwood who lost to Manhattan. To 1:16's point these are 14 year old girls. If you have played the game it's very hard to play simple even though it's a simple game. A team can have more chances than another but all it takes is one direct pass (counter attack), one error, or a bad call by a ref (more times than not) when teams are close to each other.The girls are 14 now and should understand how to play the game - these are the kids that have good training. They know where to be when attacking or in transition they don't need their coach or a parent telling them where to be - they may need a kick in the but to focus but everything else they should understand by now.PS. If a team plays a team that is more technical, I have no problem with that team drawing the technical team in to their third and then hitting them with direct balls all day. There is nothing wrong with not being the best team on paper - our girls are at a point where they need to figure out a team's weakness - make sure the worst player on the team gets the ball the most and you win the ball back very easily and can start your counter.
9:04 you don't have to do anything but at the end of the day why wouldn't you?They bring other players in to train with them to replace a player and you are free to test the waters for your kid as well.Question - did your kid request to tryout for another team or was this your decision?Remember the players hold the cards not the programs - the programs are good because of the players they have - don't believe the hype
Let the fun begin this weekend! Lets all do a bit to boost the division, be cognizant of sideline behavior and who may be in earshot when we feel the need to say something. Best of health to all your girls.
9:04Yes you should notify your club-no you don't "have to" but the night your daughter is trying out at another club, give it 5 minutes and your existing coach will know...trust me, from experienceI agree 9:13, make sure this is mostly your daughter's decision, she's old enough to knowI would recommend trying out at a club with high probability of girls' DA coming soon.
Seriously nobody cares about Boca except Boca. Please stop you are a non factor to any real club/team.
i will disagreeAny team beating the state's Gotsoccer #1 should be applauded, even if it is just for just the one effort.AS there is evidence of other "decent" play, I have no problem seeing Boca as a well run outfit.
Boca = GAK? or is it GAK = Boca?
10:09 Don't just say Wildcats when talking about scores and results for Wildcats Galaxy.That is an affiliate Team that pays to use the club name and fields. They generally play Flight 2 or Flight 3 in tournaments.The NJ Wildcats Aberbuch is the NPL Team in that Club.
From another blog but soooo well said. Who will admit they are guilty of this?"I'm not an overly obsessed parent, convinced my child is the second coming of Mia Hamm, not being noticed by power 5 college coaches bc of the lesser skilled players around her that they are stuck playing with, bc other equally skilled players committed for a little bit of money to go to a college so they can play soccer for four more years are not playing in this very immensely important game in my child's life, but they might actually have played depending on who is posting, and bc they aren't playing my Mia2 isn't able to perform her highly acclaimed foot skills and rainbow passes bc the shlub players on the field with her were hiding from the ball and didn't want to play or know how to play the game. Woe is my life of a soccer parent. I've been angry all week about this injustice that I've just about burst an artery so I need to come and talk about it on this blog so other like minded soccer superiors can reassure me that my mia2 is still a star."
You mean the Wildcat Galaxy team that is ranked #2 in NJ and #15 nation?Seems to me that is the better team.
10:18. You nailed it...and I think it is Boca = GAK. I miss the GAKster. Is this now the Bocster?
11:02 You are pretty funny.
Averbush is the better team. Not really close.
any name that mentions bush sounds scary
Galaxy earlier this month were non-competitive in flight 2(lost all 3 games) at Jeff Cup.How can they legitimately claim to be #2 in NJ or #15 in USA?They were blown out by both Frederick and CFC, neither exactly elite teams.
12:58 I have to agree with 11:02 when it comes to NJ Wildcats they published their GS ranking on ther webiste when the NPL team was high as documented on this board. They have opened the door to this, so yes NJ Wildcats Galaxy are the better team you can't like GS when it benefits you and then hate it when it doesn't.But I also agree with you since galaxy is better than the NPL team and Fc Frederick and CFC both beat up galaxy that makes none of the Nj non-ecnl teams good 'A' teams. Wow we are running out of good A teams? Since we can't use Manhattan, NYSC, YMS, PAC, NJCSA, Oakwood (just love using this team), 1776 and now both NJ Wildcat teams and since STA and NJ Crush are below the Wildcats - well maybe they aren't since they haven't played at u14.I'm still waiting for the guy from yesterday to post his "A" list from NY/NJ/PA non-ECNL of course. PL and ???? there must be more than 1 in the 3 states?
12:58Once again - LISTEN CLOSELY......It was JEFFERSON CUP!!!!!!!To not place is not a travesty.
...says the guy whose team didn't place...
Well evidently the tournament directors think differently as Wildcats Averbuch NPL is consistently placed in flight 1 while Galaxy is consistently place in lower flights.And the NPL Team has won by shutout each time they have played.
.....and got 3 excellent games out of it, 1:37Thanks.If you expect to always win you are probably not challenging your club.
1:41 You don't know what info the tournament directors are going off of, do you? You can't use results that are not u14 - I've been told this many times on this board? I can tell you that there were many teams at jefferson cup not in top flight that would have given them a fight.this team lost to GPS NJ FLASH U14G ELITE (NJ) 1:2 in a NJ NCS game so they played to win.this team also lost VICTORY EXPRESS SC VICTORY EXPRESS PLATINUM (PAW) at the Region 1 championships 34 days before U14 (but we can't use it right - only you can use the shutouts from previous years). But since you did use previous years. I'll show you how VE did at Jefferson0:6 SEVERNA PARK BLACK THUNDER (MD)0:4 FC STARS OF MASS NPL (MA) 0:4 MASSAPEQUA NPL LIL' ROWDIES (NYE)
1:11 – Not the guy from yesterday, but here is a top ten "A" team list from NYE/NJ/PAE, non-ECNL of course, and in no particular order, but using some previously declared to be unspeakable:PLNJ Wildcats AverbuchLVU1776PACISA AthleticoYMSNJ Rush BlueHulmevilleNJ CrushHonorable Mention:PU ForceNYSCSTA MorrisNJCSASJEB
Penn Legacy and NJ Wildcats Averbuch clearly at a level above the rest of that group right now.There is not one other team on that list that has a win over either PL or NJ Wildcats.And most of the results have been one sided when those teams matched up with either PL or Wildcats Averbuch.
Can someone pull up results vs those non-ECNL Teams for PL, Wildcats Averbuch and Galaxy from U14 year. maybe also include the current #1 ranked NJ team NJCSA Elite for comparison purposes.
You can take your honorable mention, and shove it up your ass.
Honestly 3:55 list is pretty spot on.
Funny, not one PDA or MF team on that list. None of those teams are better.
7:07. You are dreaming
When's the last time the NJ teams on that list beat a PDA or MF NPL team?
7:07 That well thought out list does not include NE NPL.. if it did include NE NPL, the top 3 teams would be PDA, MF, PDA
3:59Wildcats havent played Crush since 2014And Wildcats never beat PL - I dont know why you insist on riding their coattails.
Wildcats have been EDP and NPL champs last few seasons in succession.And have won all their games vs the teams on that list.Including by multiple goal spreads vs LVU, TSF, NJ Rush Blue, Galaxy, NJCSA Elite and SJEB who were the next best teams in those leagues.
7:07 - The refs must love you at tournaments. Go back and read the rules of the game. The list was to include non-ECNL "A" teams. Do PDA or MF have "A" teams that are not ECNL? If so, I suppose ECNL is not as elite is it says it is.
4:30 - NJCSA Elite only ranked #1 in NJ by the GS quantity system. They are ranked #14 in NJ by the YSR quality system. The predictive value of YSR is more accurate in determining the outcome of individual matches than GS.
Wildcats haven't beat a PDA or MF team in 3 years.
Take away "focaccia" EDP points and Wildcats wouldn't be in the top 20 in NJ.
NJ and NY must be taking the day off
Just checked and agree youth soccer rankings much more accurate. Other than having an extra South team in the rankings it was just about on point from 1-15.
Sorry YSR had an extra PDA South NPL Team in the rankings.
11:52 that list was to compare non-ecnl A teams to the North East NPL teams. My point is that there is not much difference and I provided results to prove that.
10:56 here is the list - I took their top 50 and removed the ECNL teams(1-10)37.25 NEFC ELITE (MA) 35.37 OAKWOOD SC (CT) 35.20 PENN LEGACY FC BLACK (PAE) 35.02 PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY SOUTH NPL (NJ) 34.88 GREATER BINGHAMTON UNITED FC SELECT (NYW) 34.76 NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH (NJ) 34.71 BRADDOCK ROAD YC ELITE (VA)34.47 EMPIRE UNITED SA ROCHESTER (NYW) 34.38 LEHIGH VALLEY UNITED (PAE) 34.33 UNITED FC 1776 XTREME (PAE)(11-20)34.30 SOUTH SHORE SELECT ACADEMY ELITE (MA)34.22 PENNSYLVANIA CLASSICS ACADEMY (PAE)34.21 FC FREDERICK (MD) 34.07 FC STARS OF MASSACHUSETTS WEST UNITED (MA) 34.07 FC VIRGINIA (VA) 34.03 NEFC PREMIER NORTH (MA) 33.99 FC BOSTON SCORPIONS NORTH ELITE NPL (MA) 33.98 MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC NPL (NJ)33.83 PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY NORTH NPL (MD) 33.81 ATLETICO FC ISA NPL (NYE) (21+)33.76 FC VIRGINIA UNITED ELITE (VA)33.69 SEACOAST UNITED ELITE CS (NH) 33.66 BEADLING SC ELITE (PAW) 33.66 BEACH FC RED (VA) 33.64 CENTURY V GOLD (PAW)33.56 PENN UNITED FORCE FC (PAE) 33.50 YARDLEY MAKEFIELD SOCCER BANSHEES (PAE) 33.49 DAVIDSONVILLE DYNAMITE (MD) 33.48 HARFORD FC UNITED THUNDER (MD) 33.43 NEW JERSEY RUSH BLUE NPL (NJ)33.35 PRINCE WILLIAM SOCCER PWSI COURAGE RED (VA) 33.32 VICTORY EXPRESS SC WASHINGTON PLATINUM (PAW)33.32 PENN FUSION SA NPL (PAE) Duplicates:34.69 GREATER BINGHAMTON UNITED FC (NYW) 34.43 PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY AJAX (NJ)33.43 PLAYERS DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY NORTH NPL DRAGONS (NJ)
PDA beats cal 4-0. So much for California teams being dominate.
Real SoCal 3 Penn Fusion 0
That's an embarrassment . Guess PF should spend more time recruiting . Oops , I mean player "development " lol
Strikers FC 4 MF ECNL 1That's the last place team in The Southwest Conference(mostly CA teams) manhandling the top team in the Northeast Conference. Wow.
Just goes to show that matchfit beating PDA for first time was probably a fluke.
I agree, 6:21. That's irrefutable proof.
MF team is in such turmoil right now
"Showcase"!!! just tells me the other teams are deeper. You play every game to win but you play these games to win with the entire team - College Showcase pal.
You guys are delusional thinking U14 college showcase actually matters for anything lol. ECNL, your club, the hotels, restaurants etc all thank you for wasting your cash. When half of these kids are gone next year off PDA and MF they'll have the pictures and tee shirts to remember the trio by! U-15 everything changed for actually everyone so see you lunatics next season on U-15 page ROFL!
8:35 isn't that what I said they play the game to win with the entire roster = Showcase while in CA? So a 4-1 and 3-0 loss just tells me the other teams were deeper. But yet Storm had their way 4-0 looks like a deep team.
Storm suddenly scoring in droves when a certain - ahem - player shows up - and no mention of this.Interesting.
Not a good showing by MFA, but for young kids travelling to the west coast and playing CA teams in the 8am game, ECNL did not do them a favor. Reverse that and you'd have a similiar result with MFA on top.
5:03 Dingus... One game does not make or break a team... These kids flew 3000 miles to play. Give them 24 hours to see what they're made of.
MFA will get a rude awakening come the end of the season.
I heard a mass exodus is about to take place over there at Mf.
10:42 I am 100% sure the young ladies that leave Match Fit will be replaced by CLEARLY more talented and hungrier players that are currently there.... Please don't let the door hit you in you in the a$$. See you on the flip side.

11:01, where is MF going to magically get all of these awesomely talented kids to replace the kids that are leaving? Maybe all the way from WC?
I'd agree with 10:24 in that traveling across the country and playing 8am games especially against teams who are in their own back yard plays a part no doubt. Will be interesting to see if they adjust better for the next 2. Certainly a new experience for these 14 year olds.
9:17 not following, please enlighten
You delude yourself if you think your kid and the others who are leaving won't be replaced by equal of better players.
I think the question was they won't be coming from within. By definition players on the NPL teams are below the ECNL players they are allegedly replacing, the better replacements will have to come from outside.
All of you are deluded if you think any of the "who is better than whom" matters right now. Every team, in every age group, in every state will be different because of birth year change. MF, PDA, or where ever your daughter winds up will not be the same team you're watching now. Players come and go every season. So do coaches. Change is good. And for some teams change will be great.

What happens if the coach doesn't like their game because it doesn't fit his/her style how do they handle this new wrinkle? Do you shut your mouth and watch a possible down word spiral? How do they handle the pressure you add to the mix? Of course the flip side is they walk on and are a rock start from the start -sky is the limit for those players.
Is there a link to the San Diego tournament's results? Thanks!
Yes, but they still LIVE in New Jersey, that has to bring everyone down a few notches, no? I mean, we are talking about NJ here, not a real state. It is the land of fumes, and ruined dunes, please people, have a heart. Lets us all pray for them, hummmmm.
They update it on twitter
Any Link to SanDiego results???
MF will struggle next year. Player pool not strong, especially with dissolving affiliation. MF continues to piss off parents. No reason to stay. MF will have a very hard time replacing top players, middle level players.
NYSC guy, How did the girls do in their cup game?
PDA wins again vs Colorado.
MF won 4-1, did not see PDA.
LOL player pool not strong at MFA. Their ECNL teams is ranked #2 in the country, their NE NPL team is in 2nd, and their C team is competitive in a league playing against the A teams of great clubs. The nonsense spewed here against MatchFit is cleary people with agendas. Get a life.
It is not the wins and losses at MF that is causing the complaints in this and other age groups. This type of rationalizing by their administration is exactly why they are missing the point of the complaints. People are not paying for wins or to be part of a good recruiting organization. People are paying for development, training, integrity, consistency, getting what they pay for and are promised,etc.

what is Sad is the bunch of liars that are running youth soccer clubs. This happens in every state not only NJ but PA and NY.

PL falls to South Shore 1-3.. Seems the problem of girls already commiting to PF is beginning to show through. Wonder how the lesser girls are starting to feel?
@10:13 AND 11:30 on March 30. Merger Announcement - South Jersey Elite Barons & NJ Rush Join Forces to Form a National Contender. pda shore will get better. Boca beat them twice, shut them out, so they properly beat them lets say. They really should not have, pda should beat Boca all the time, but not this particular Boca team. Boca has been together for several years, and close knit. It is making them win now, nothing happens over night, this has been several years of training and hard work and working with parents and coaches to stay together some how, like a successful marriage. :) where else to you play high level at jersey shore? WC, Boca, PDA shore and where else??
It is good that PL loses once in a while, they are out of there league playing in PA or NJ or even NY. They always win, the PF thing is crazy, it happens all over the place like pda/mf in NJ.
Yes,PL is broken. hopefully their injured are back soon to help finish the season. Unfortunately, they can't show their true colors unless all are healthy. They don't grab guess players to get the job done. Not for league or for tournaments.
PL is going to have a long rest of the season if PF commits are becoming a problem already . Heard 3-4 commited and 2-3 more are on the fence... Pl's best players? Seem they have moved on to greener pastures and leaving the poor rec club behind
Nope they will be fine once the uninjured are playing again. They play great for each other...a very unselfish team. Just struggling trying to improvise...2..3.. Subs not cutting for them.
Weaker players being exploited due to injured players... PL Parent, give us some insight ?
2 losses in a row, ouch. South Shore is simply out of their league.
@11:40. Not even sure I would consider WC at the jersey shore but b/w Boca and Pda shore, one certainly seems more stable. Going by what one hears and reads. One of those two is clearly a more attractive option to select players once the changes come.
4:54MFA has no plan other than this. They look at early ages for the better teams. In this age group they fished for Jefferson who bit the hook first and then HolmdelNJX who bit the hook second. Nice parent coaches who know nothing about everything and whose daughters are middle to bottom third players. Not a personal attack. A rating of a player.Next they, MFA sell that parent on handing over their team with the promise that they, the parent will be allowed to stay on the touch line. See how well that lasted for the Holmdel coach. Then they promote how strong the club is with all of these new teams and players from, you got it, these top age group teams that have won SC or similar so the next batch of players come.In the process, players are driving all over the state for a mish mosh of venues, trainers, rosters, coaches and affiliations.And loss in much of the above is that many of the rostered players are not "academy" level if there is such a thing BUT their oarents love to roll up to fields with their moca lattes and their Escalades and say, "look at my academy kid!"Then guess what? The game starts and reality sets in.
11:40- with clubs merginging it is getting difficult to find good clubs. This would be my list for HS bound players. 1 NJCSA- Developing their coaches and facilities to make this a good option. Current NJ State Champions. 2. PDA Shore- As the girls go into HS the PDA teams will always get accepted to big national tournaments. Plus will always have access to PDA own college showcase tournaments. 3. BOCA has been a very good "town team". Think it would be tough as an outsider to get a fair chance to earn your minutes. 4. NJ Wildcats- They build their resume based on who they play, not who they beat. Their GS ranking is based on winning weak EDP leagues. There is a reason this team only has 13 players.
8:20- Spot on. These people have been warned for years about Match Fleece. To be fair, MF screwed both the Jefferson and NJX teams. Dont think it's fair to blame coaches for poor decision. They tried to do what was best for the "team". Both coaches were eventually treated very poorly by MF.
The parent coaches are adults. The victims were the players. In Holmdel, most of the NJX teams did not give themselves up to MF. Only this one lune. She wasn't treated poorly. She received the same level of thoughtless treatment she showed to the players. You get what you give.
8:20 - NJCSA is probably the worst option, unless you like your kid getting chastised for not passing the ball to a coaches kid. A truly bad choice. Most people know they won the state cup based on lack of any teams of quality in the tournament. Getting rid of the parents coaching the team would be a start.A mom or dad coaching their own kid, is always a terrible idea... the kid always receives special treatment and no one benefits. Stay clear of these situations at all costs. BOCA and NJCSA have been swapping players for tournaments (two different leagues) so if you're okay with guest players, playing in big games, instead of your kid, then you should pick one of those teams. You see there are issues with every organization, some much bigger than others. I have a problem with these places NOT making changes. I commend the ones that know there's issues and take action.
OPEN TRYOUTS? This is why this board is great!!! I would never consider a club that writes OPEN tryouts and then you find out they weren't fair. I read commitments before a single tryout. I would be okay with players being given spots for this year but for next year, I wouldn't want anything to do with this club. To each their own, but "open" means fair to me and it sounds like lots of behind the scenes dealing at this club. Wish all the families and players well but that's a club I would not spend my money on to train my kid.GS 4 Life
GS 4 life are you talking about all the ECNL clubs and some non - ECNL clubs that are spoken about on this blog? It is pretty tough to find a club that doesn't have some spots offered before try outs. Every ECNL team has spots offered to players before try outs. Open try outs are a joke like most of the clubs and the people who run them. This is why I truly hope that the DA comes in and steals enough ECNL clubs that the league goes away.
GS4L- think your being very naive if you don't think EVERY club does or would discuss better players joining their team before open tryouts. Especially this year when smaller clubs struggle to field teams based on birth year. This year will be a major scramble as both clubs and parents look for viable options.
So much for Boca running through their EDP division and winning every game 4-0. Lose 3-2 to Warrington in first EDP game of spring season.
We have a game getting ready to start. Does anyone agree that it's ridiculous to have them playing in 40+ mile-per-hour winds? Before the game starts I'll admit win or lose it will be tough to claim to be the better team when playing under these conditions. Besides goals are nearly tipping over by force of wind. Just a crazy day here in NJ!
12:37...conditions are the same for both teams. But I'm sure that will be the losers excuse.
Naive? for sure!!! I don't argue that - Just saying why say OPEN if it's not? Oh yeah because the rules say they should be open - but we know the rules only apply when they are to our disadvantage of course like anything in life.On a side note some early Sunday scores and scores not posted yesterday. Love the results to take me away from the reality of youth soccer. games are played for a result the kids do their best to get the result - sometimes the coaches get a little to involved and make it about them instead of the kids, but that's another topic for another day just another thing wrong with youth soccer - not GS's fault but they are the perfect whipping boy when it comes to this.ECNL San Diego Showcase1 Crossfire Premier ECNL U140 PDA ECNL U141 FC Portland ECNL U143 Match Fit Academy ECNL U14-------------------------------RCL 2 BRADDOCK ROAD YC 01 ELITE0 HARFORD FC UNITED THUNDER-------------------------------PAE NCS5 Ukranian Blasters Black2 Hershey 01 Elite Hurricanes-------------------------------NY Cup0 New Rochelle RT Premier3 New York SC New York SC G01------------------------------NewEngland NPL0 YANKEE UNITED F.C.

12:55 I agree but it leads to less skill and more luck. I mean, do you normally score from midfield or is that bc of the weather. If it were 10 or even 20 mph that's one thing. But 40?0
