U13G / U13 Girls Youth Soccer

U13G  / U13 Girls youth soccer seems to offer the most teams and the widest diversity of talent.

Where these players will end up is anyone guess.

Welcome to the ride.

How is Crush even in that bracket to begin with?

Wildcats,STA,Crush will not win their brackets

Early in Spring season still to see who is on the rise and who is not.

Big year for tryouts.

We all know STA is not the 1 team in state and region.

They are a top 5 team in NJ if they add a few more players they can contend in these tournaments.

MF ECNL, PDA ECNL, Wildcats, MF NPL I would say ahead of them.

AJAX and STA be a good game for the 5th spot.

Good luck wildcats tomorrow!
NJ girls still alive in top flight!

World Class needs a win to advance in 2nd flight

As do Ajax and NYSC, who play each other (if they tie, Cleveland can vault them)

Top flight -

Wildcats advance with win over FC Virginia if it is by 1-0 or any 2 goal or greater margin

STA goes 4-0 all over YMS to advance to semi in 3rd flight

Good luck Wildcats, WC, NYSC, Ajax and STA, tomorrow. Nice to be playing for something Sunday.

4:59 is right - it is any Wildcat win.

Represent, Cats!

Unless each team score 3+ goals.

In that case Cats would be a point short

What are you talking about, final scores aren't out and Ajax and wildcats are doing fine, and those are the only decent teams from nj that went.

Agreed, 11:27. NJ and PA teams have done well.

Wildcats, Ajax, STA, WCFC, PF, PA Classics, 1776, Ukrainians all in semis or the equivalent of a semifinal today.

Out: PL, Crush

Readers of this blog should be pleased.

Dragons are the #2 PDA team, correct? Sta?Njcsa old force?. Oh I forgot the mighty storm and MF ecnl were not there.

And PL didn't even do badly. They just happened to face arguably the best U13 team in the tournament in their first game, losing by one goal.

I think the poster commented on nj teams. Half everyone posted were pa and NY. Sta out!! Wildcats next because a tie doesn't help. Mr. Stats guy, breakdown please of records for nj NY and pa

Anonymous said...

How do you get semi final out of this tourney. Just because one team happens to play their toughest team in the third game and the other played them first does not mean that the first team is in the semis..... They are all level until all three game results are in. But if it makes you feel better..... Yikes. Just play.

Anonymous said...

You're being unreasonable. Regardless of how the schedule plays out, the goal after Saturday's games is to be alive on Sunday.

One poster said NJ teams crapped the bed, another said many are still alive on Sunday. I must have missed your "yikes" post after the negative post about NJ.

PDA Shore and AJAX are in finals of their brackets.

Jeff cup shows true colors. NJCSA embarrassed in lower bracket as well. PDA Shore STA does well considering brackets. NJ rush up there. Cats should do better again considering claims.

NJ Rush in u14. NJCSA B team fared well in lower bracket. Ajax is just a great team in NJ. Cats only real team from NJ able to play in top bracket. Good for them Certainly tried.

12:29.... The preliminary round is a best of three. Not two but three. After the three games(2 Sat and 1 Sun) then you can rank everyone based on all three games. To rank any earlier makes zero sense as the games are in no particular order.....

Fc Virginia 4-Wildcats 0.

Be curious to hear how wildcats found this team compared to rest of competition.

I am not a Wildcat hater As a matter of fact wildcats fared well until running into this team. Be curious to know the difference.

Anonymous said...

Called ECNL talent. That is what we will all see moving in to next season. I know many hate it, but it is the way it goes. Always.....

Anonymous said...

Wildcats got waxed by the only high caliber team in their flight and tied the other two. Wildcats train to beat up the other team and thunder foot the ball forward followed by aggressive chase and pressure. They train it. They believe in it and they are proud of it. It's also not a bad recipe for some level of college soccer prep because some college coaches also play that style. But Wildcats are a far cry from a top team and don't need a soccer coach in charge but instead a track coach with a go, go, go mentality barking from the touch line. And that they have.

Anonymous said...

The win now mentality will always fall behind the top. What we have all been saying. This will happen more and more as ECNL teams move to next level.... Tough to change history as this happens to teams like this over and over again.....Nothing wrong with it but please do not say that this team will be different. 4-0 waxing is not what you see when teams are close in talent.

Looks like PA teams finished in 2nd into brackets. Nice showing.

Wildcats lost to a better team today.
No excuses.
But played 2 pretty good teams even up on saturday.
To lose to the best team in the region, by far, is no disgrace.
FCV have now won 3 top tournaments in succession, disney, Bethesda and now Jeff Cup. We have played them in last 3 and have said all along they were best team we have played.
they also had a player who guested with them this weekend who scored a number of goals and was a difference maker today.
to say the other ecnl teams in nj or pa are on the same level is hilarious.
We have played them, they are not.

Cinn Cup Gold beat a pretty good Penn Fusion ecnl team 5-0 today, and then Cinn lost to FCV in finals 3-1.
Nuff said about fcv's level in relation to other team's in Region 1, including other ECNL League Teams..
Far, far superior.

Anonymous said...

That is kind of a bullshit thing (bringing a guest player to Jeff). There are a very good team anyway, why give people a reason to take away from your accomplishments. Plus, they had a deep bench. If I'm a FCV parent, I'm a little pissed about a having a guest player along.

Anonymous said...

Thanks 534 for that synopsis Wildcat parent. At least you didn't use the "meaningless game, played our subs" excuse, I will give you that but nothing else. Your script is old now.

Anonymous said...

@608.....Totally agree especially for top bracket. Those teams recruit the best talent & charge a big fee. No reason to bring a guest player to a tournament like this. From sound of things it wouldn't have mattered if she wasn't there but FCV should be little ashamed.

Anonymous said...

Why?

If FCV recruited a played to join this team for this Spring or next year. She should join team.

NJ Wildcats your team has not played the top teams in NJ this year. I am not sure if you ever played MF ECNL.

Get used this

Anonymous said...

The challenge with tournaments that are "send a check and we will seed you" is that you get some good teams and many hopeful teams with typically only 1-2 top teams. Wildcats is a borderline hopeful to good team and light years from being a top team. They are so-so against hopeful teams like the 2 teams they drew. And when they played a top team, the result was indicative of where they are on the development landscape. Wildcats is all about guest players as an organization so there should be no issues there. Wildcats is a top team among the C level teams. So long as they manage their schedule to win enough games against the hopefuls and so long as they rack up enough GS points (which is perfectly tailored to reward teams for beating the hopefuls) and so long as they keep their parent group convinced that being the top team among the mid range set is worthy of the $2500 per annum, then all will be well for them.

Anonymous said...

When have you played another ECNL team lately in a game that mattered like a tourney like this? All ECNL teams are all getting better. You are not. It is the style of play that eventually wins out. Please stop. It happens each and every year with a team that has results success until the real soccer starts..... Please just stop and move on..... It is the beginning of the end......

Anonymous said...

Look at STA U14 team, very similar to the top teams at our age. Now all the top players are leaving for the likes of PDA and Match Fit on this team. Happens every year

Anonymous said...

No ECNL team in Reg 1 would have fared any better against FCV than the Wildcats did today, don't flatter yourselves. Just because you have the same cute letters at the end of your team name doesn't put you in the same league as FCV.

Anonymous said...

Wildcats last 3 events including this weekend saw them play 9 total games and score a total of 6 goals. None of their results were against elite or top teams even though they show a win over the Maryland SC champ 1-0. That team is only the SC champ because the better teams did not play SC. Hey...you can call it a win over the SC champ for sure but it does not pass the eye test. This is a masterful job of distortion followed by a similar level of extortion.

Anonymous said...

the very fact that you follow them so closely and know all their results better than their own parents shows they matter very much to you and are always on your mind.
And yes, they are NJ State Cup Champs this year and will be going to Regionals in June and you are not and will not.
Better luck next fall.

At U13 Wildcats in out-of-state tournaments have 1 win, 3 losses & 8 ties. In those 12 games its 7 goals for & 15 goals against. But they won the fall State Cup don't forget without having to beat any MF or PDA team. Kudos to them for that.

FCV won final in OT

Anonymous said...

Why all the hate on this forum? It's U13 girls soccer for crying out loud, not life or death.

My daughter is on the FCV B team.....of course ECNL is the top tier but on their way to the final in Jeff Cup this weekend they completely outplayed Delco (ECNL) and are streets ahead of McLean ECNL.

FCV is an interesting club: some very good bits, some very bad but at U13 the top 2 teams are stocked with high ability girls.

But at the end of the day it is only a game.

Anonymous said...

I figured FCV was in OT, down 1 goal. Nothing to lose but to push all up to try to tie game.

Anonymous said...

So what happened today 824? Was it a meaningless game? Subs played? Guest player on the other team? All that training & couldn't even compete with FCV today. The other teams in the bracket did but you couldn't. What gives? Lets take this further. You have played FCV 3 times at U13 - tied 0-0, lost 2-1 last year & today's 4-0 waxing. Why such a difference in results from those first 2 games to today? All that money spent on winter training & 4-0? LOL!

Anonymous said...

Wildcats are a good team, can compete to a degree.

MF\PDA will only get better. Well MF depends where the ECNL will be personally.

If north players move to South or South move to North. I would bet South to North. too much talent on North team to let it go

Too many things against MF. Either going north or south. Ecnl has a daddy coach and has reached his limit long ago, whether or not he shows favoritism towards his daughter or not. If Doc takes over, he isn't much better. Spends more time on his phone during training and games. MF in general is not about creating a team. They create an individual atmosphere, not a team atmosphere. As far as they are corcerned there job is done already at this age group, considering they have a u13 training with the u15 national team

F2 Winning % (Spirit, FC Stars, WAGS, Bethesda ,Disney, CASL, Jefferson) with F1 % in ( )

94% WORLD CLASS FC '01 CHARLTON
86% PWSI COURAGE 01G RED (F1 = 0%)
63% PDA AJAX (F1= 50%)
50% NEW YORK SC G01 (F1 = 25%)
25% NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI (F1 = 0%)
17% RICHMOND UNITED U13 PRE ECNL


The next time these teams enter a major - I think WC has proven they can handle F2 and are ready for F1 action and can replace (Calvert, BRYC, NJ wildcats, PL and PF).

I also think PDA Ajax should be 2nd in line for a promotion replacing and one of those same teams their F1 winning% is higher at 50% and they also proved that they can handle F2 with a 63%. I would also consider PWSI if they have another strong outing in their next major 86% if F2 but the 0% in F1 shows me they are close.

On the flip side NJ Crush and Richmond ECNL should fall out of F2 as a 25% in F2 is showing me they are still over their head as is Richmond ECNL@ 17% could you image the score lines if they were still F1 and didn't replace them?

Let's see what the next two majors do PDA & Delco.

Great job to all the girls they are all winners individually for having to play in these conditions.

But unfortunately,this is a team sport and there can be only one winner and since they use results to determine flights - this is the reason for my post. Just giving my opinion.

8:33 no sir, consistently right in middle of pack among regular F1 Teams in these showcase events.
That is right where we belong right now and where we have been consistently at these events. In 3 way tie for 2nd place in F1 at Jeff Cup. Still in contention with something to play for right up through sunday game.
Would be unrealistic to expect more right now. We have come a long way to be getting the top spot( 5 straight tournaments wildcats in F1 ) among nj teams entering these events every singe showcase tournament now.
remember we were a F2 Team and didn't advance at jeff cup last year.

Penn Fusion had more points then both of the others so they are above and should be.

Anonymous said...

Then list them by points not goal differential. And yes playing the two weakest teams in D1 does help with that. They would have done no better then the Wildcats in the other pool

Anonymous said...

Again, Wildcats at U13 has played FCV 3 times. Twice last fall (@ WAGS tied 0-0 & at Bethesda lost 2-1) & yesterday's 4-0 loss. Did FCV's guest player make that much of a difference? Did Wildcats lose any player(s) over the winter? 3 games should give you a good barometer of how you compare against a team. These 3 games do not.

Anonymous said...

Funny as you guys always pump up your fellow league program, Calvert, as one of the top teams..... Which is it?
In FC VA you are seeing the development of an ECNL team. This will become apparent to most top ECNL programs come Fall.

Anonymous said...

FCV 1st place
PL -9 pts
Tri -pts
Wildcats -pts
all 9 points 2 ties 1 loss each, 1 shutout point, 2 points for total goals scored.
Only by goal differential tiebreaker were those 3 teams separated after 3 way tie for 2nd place in points.
Now as to your question of what wse take from score vs FCV vs past 2 recent matchups do you think a game played in standing water puddles where after being passed or dribbled ball hit puddle and stopped dea should carry more weight than game s played in normal conditions at Bethesda or WAGS?
Very little can being assessed accurately from playing in unplayable conditions.
the 2nd games saturday and even the games on sunday morning games would not have gone forward if they were league or state cup games.

Calvert can compete, but not really a team that can advance in these elite events.

Of course I ripped Jeff cup for their placement of Richmond United. Did you see where that team finished in Division II? Seems it was well deserved. Look just because you are the biggest kid at the kiddie table doesn't mean you deserve to move up with the adults yet. A lot of these teams will play each other in league play between now and the time Delco's committee has to make that decision.

@12:22...Huh? Who are you talking about top flight & what does family wedding have to do with anything?

What semi finalist are you talking about??? There were no semi finals. Pool play is best of three games. The top 4 teams at the end in the overall flight will stay top flight teams. All the others, maybe not.....

Anonymous said...

Thats how it works my friend, there doesn't need to be a semi final game. The teams that finish second in each pool are the semi finalists, and will get points as such. Check last year at Jeff or Bethesda this fall. Both PA teams were semi finalists, and no one in that list of wannabees is going to knock them off without beating them in league play this spring.

Anonymous said...

Totally agree. Semi finalists are the 3 and 4 in overall points....
I think some other teams were insinuating that because they were undefeated after the first two games that THEY were in the semi finals on Sunday.....

Anonymous said...

1:54 not true.
semifinal points go to the best 2nd place finisher on each side of bracket, just as the best 2nd place finisher on each side of bracket would have advanced to semifinals had they been held in Jeff Cup.
Since there was 3 way tie for 2nd in points on that side of bracket PL will get the semifinal points based on 2nd tiebreaker of goal differential since first tiebreaker was head to head and all three teams that were tied for 2nd tied each other head to head.

Even more importantly than me agreeing with you 4:21, is that my daughter would agree with you. It was a very evenly played tourney, with one play often deciding each game (Usually does though). It was extremely tough to put passes together and score goals on Saturday. Any girl that played in this tournament came away with a lesson learned about playing in those conditions with high level teams. The rain and mud equalized talent, so you had to basically out work the other team. Was extremely surprised by the Fusion/Cincy score (5-0) and the FCV/Wildcat score (4-0). Legacy had had held FCV to a one goal and it made me think the Wildcats had a shot.

We played this weekend, and I am satisfied with our results. This was our first time playing since November, and all things considered we did well, not great, not terrible, but just enough good things to be hopeful. Our real season starts on Sunday, and that is when it counts. Our path leads to Nationals on July 9th, and we will endeavor to represent ourselves, and our club, with honor and pride.

8:19, are both of those qualities so beyond your realm of understanding that you need to make light of them? Every time my child puts on her uniform she represents herself, team, and club with honor and pride. BTW: we remove our hats when the National Anthem is played, not because we have to, but because we want to.

USYSA Region 1 also now changed rules to allow adds to roster after state cups are decided but before regionals are played in west virginia in June.
So state cup champs will also be able to add players added to roster at tryouts to roster for Regionals.

Anonymous said...

Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't they split into 2 and they don't play each other. So 3 quality games for 1 flight and 2 for the other going by your list. What's the grand prize? A birth to Regional Championships? WOW they placed last year's champion in F2 this year and said they can get promoted if they do good. Slap in the face to Sachem Speed. But they are not in the inner circle oh yeah there isn't one.

Actually I would consider the grand prize to be a berth in the USYS National League, most of those teams will likely win their state cup and have no use for a regional wildcard slot

Yes I agree 11:17 - but it looks like the birth is only to the region 1 championships or i missed it on their website

The Champions League is a qualifying league for the National Championship competition.

Champions of Division 1 will be the automatic wildcard (regardless of their team's actual age level) for the Boys and Girls U 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 Region I National Championships respectively.

There will be promotion and relegation between the Divisions starting 2016.

You all keep talking "Nationals". You have other layers above you that are at a higher level so "Nationals" of a lower level. Again, fine. But lets be realistic here. Entire levels above this level......

Anonymous said...

8:16 I don't know your individual situation. But if my kid is learning the game and if put on the field with 10 high level players she doesn't know at and is asked to play a totally random position. If she can fit in and play - then it's an honor regardless of the cost and regardless of the results.

But that's just my 2 cents.

Anonymous said...

8:35 Honestly who cares how many levels there are this is youth soccer.

All National Titles.

ECNL
NPL
National League
Super Y
USYSA Nationals
US Club National Cup
USYSA President's Cup.

Now all it takes is one club with some pull to invite all these champions to one tournament and let them play each other. You don't need
USL, USYSA or US Club for this. It's simple if you really want ONE.

But for me - I like that there is a title for every level.

Totally agree. BUT you have to respect the levels. In any sport. Many try to make it sound like it is more than it is.... That is all. Good luck to all.

Agreed PDL is D4 but the championship is still huge for all those players playing in PDL.

go up a level to the USL it might be D3 and most of the teams are B teams -a title still means a lot to all these players.

let's move up another level to NASL - a title means a bunch to these teams as well.

There might be no pro/rel between these leagues one higher than the other - but they all get a crack at playing to qualify for CCL via the Lamar Hunt Open Cup.

All the players in all these leagues respect MLS as D1 but to say their titles are worthless like some say is just wrong. Is the level of play different FOR SURE!!

Same with youth Soccer - no lamar hunt open cup - USYSA had that and let it slip away. US Club can fill that void with their National Cup -but first they need to have all their member clubs buy into it first.

Automatic bids for ECNL & NPL Champs.

What ECNL Club won't want a DOUBLE - ECNL title plus a National Cup?

What non-ECNL club wouldn't want to win the national Cup over an ECNL Club?

What ECNL CLub wouldn't want a TRIPLE?

League,State and national Title?? But US Club needs to up the anti and make it mean something to qualify.

You're totally right, 8:52. In three weeks let's be sure to point out to the winner of the NCAA tournament that while it's great for them, it really isn't that impressive because it's not the NBA.

Seems the top 3 in NYCSL may be playing the top 3 in NE NPL - this spring

And it will expand to top 8 starting in September, with a top 4 vs top 4 and bottom 4 vs bottom 4 mini tourney

Also - a team not winning their NPL could still be invited to NPL Nationals, of seen as deserving and to finish the preferred field.

Just some things I have come across

Bitter bitter person. As I said in the post it IS a great thing for the girls. Reality!! There IS a difference. Sometimes a very big difference. Just shows me you never played yourself or you would truly understand the difference. D1 NCAA is as high as it goes in college so winning that IS the top. Winning D3 basketball tourney is great BUT a BIG difference in the two. Who is the one out of touch on the topic??? Hello.....

Once again Seth the Soothsayer's crystal ball came through. Although Cleveland did not win as picked here, they did only allow one goal in three games and would have gave WC a better game in the final. Of course FCV was picked as the overall winner in their bracket and for the tournament. And of course I also correctly picked Fusion for 2nd. BRYC was a major disappointment and blame the magic 8 ball for that predictions. I did wiff on Legacy as I thought they would not hold up as well as they did against the far superior FCV, Wildcats and Tri State which was last years champion. It is written, It is fact

Seth,

You are a failure at predictions, and picking FCV was lame, since most people agree that they might be the best u13 team on the East Coast, or in the country. Your desperate attempts at salvaging any credibility with CFC by noting their GD is even more lame.

You sir, are a fraud, and should stick to LAX.

Best team at Jeff Cup may have been Grand Rapids.

The sad attack by 5:52 is usual when it comes to slackers that only feed off of stealing other peoples ideas and thoughts(usually a lot smarter than they are) . Mindless Drones like 5:52 will only make a statement after hear 50 other people proclaim it as truth. Basically 5;52 you are the mask of the minority hiding in the cloak of the majority. Seth however, is not afraid to be criticized in a rare moment when he is wrong. Were you the one 5:52 proclaiming that Fusion was dead in the water because they lost two players (While Seth predicted they would come in second because they gained two)? I also predicted recent injuries would greatly affect two teams, and low and behold two teams brought guest players ya big dope. We are the ones in the know, and we know you are a moron. My crystal ball is showing your face in it. It is the face of a an angry loser that didn't enjoy Jeff Cup. It is written. It is fact.

Be serious 8:27. You can't lose to teams from Tennessee and Kansas like Grand Rapids did and then mention them as a best team in a tournament that has Cincy, FCV, Tri State or Wildcats in it. I am thinking that you were joking when you posted that. They're not even stronger than PDA AJAX or World Class. Although WC should have been in the top flight.

Anonymous said...

2nd flight was a joke. Half of those teams didn't belong there. Didn't WC lose to STA, AJAX lost to Dragons and Crush has lost to everyone.

Grand Rapids must have new players. They rolled over teams.

Anonymous said...

Maybe they just brought guest players like everyone else.

Anonymous said...

7:33, that is not true, our club does not allow guest players, once you are accepted on the roster, they are obligated to develop your child. If she does not improve, she will lose game minutes, and in turn that family will probably find another team next season. Such is life in our world, only the strong survive.

Nothing wrong with money or people making it. Nothing wrong with academies having multiple teams or keeping each of the teams sold on a vision.
The affiliate program is working very well for the academies. Leaves most of the heavy lifting to the club's who start the teams.
The one gap is in the "high level" claims. When an academy has one top team and each player needs to earn the wings to make it...you in effect have a top team. When that same academy now has 3, 4, 5 teams, by default there is no top team and the claim that the best players should train among and play against the best can not be met. It is effectively just putting the dress on the pig as many of the players on these 3-5 teams are light years away from high level. If they and their parents are ok with this and for big $, so be it.

You must have me confused with someone else. But since you brought them up, I did in fact have WC in mind when I made that comment.

Anonymous said...

That is a good point 10:24. There is nothing wrong with programs making money. If people are willing to pay, all the power to them.
Parents who's daughter is on the 3rd / 4th team in that age group, have to understand their daughter most likely is not going to be on that top team. Girls from other top teams, and from the 2nd team will take those rare open spots. If a parent is willing to pay top money for the name on the jersey, and tell everyone their daughter plays for " insert team", that is their business.

Anonymous said...

My daughters club has only 1 team per age group, so we do not have that problem, but getting minutes is becoming harder for the slightly less-skilled girls, its really that close. This is the best team in our county, with the best training in the area, this includes Rockland county, I know because I have watched, very closely. Personally, I do not believe in multiple teams at same age, it creates elitists and a festering sense of inadequacy.

As for teams making money - as for players leaving teams, its all good. As lomg as your son/daughter is playing in a competitive atmosphere and getting good instruction - that is what the $$$ paid are for.

Enjoy the weekend - handful of interesting games out there in this age group, I see.

You're crazy. What does having B team quality players on a top team create?

Anonymous said...

All of you ecnl kool aid drinkers that think the cream rises to the top. Only difference between an ecnl team and a top town team is maybe 3 or 4 top players. Where as a town team may only have 1 or 2 top players. A few players may be more athletic than a town team player, but the town players have better soccer knowledge and field awareness. The training is just as good and most of the time better at the town clubs, because the trainers care and its not about the $$$$$. This is especially true in nj, when the top 20 teams can beat each other on any given day.

Anonymous said...

What does it create, haha, you’re kidding right?

I will not even bother responding, because your post is self-explanatory, Mr. B-team perpetuator. You are totally, and I believe honestly, oblivious to your own slight.

Anonymous said...

3:21, I love you , but you go too far.

There is no way that any town team near us gets the same training as our players, no way, none, zero, zilch, nada. I do slightly share in the belief of several exceptional players on a roster that can turn a game, I think you need 7-8 of these types if you want to success, and build a solid core.

P.S. please don’t disagree with me, I am fragile today.

Anonymous said...

I love you too 321 for giving me a much needed laugh today. I am going to bet that your daughter plays, ummmmm, let me guess EDP, right? Her team can't get into ECNL & therefore makes you very bitter, am I right?

Anonymous said...

Bitter bitter is right. The money is the SAME wherever you go to a team that plays all the time and in a bunch of tournaments. So stop it with the money. And you still do not see that the constant tweaking of a rotation makes the cream rise to the top. This will happen more and more over the coming months. Happens every year when U13's go to U14's..... You need the constant push to get to the next level. But I know, your team will be different....

Anonymous said...

3:53 Yes sir!
And I believe if you are correct that 45 player rosters are in our future and imagine the competition for being rostered between all those players that that situation will create.Less than 1 minute per half average playing time per player below top 7-8 on squad over the course of a season.
Look at the opportunities for development under the model you tout!
It is not about the money, it is about development!

Which route are you talking about?

isn't it the player that determines their college future, especially , if that player plays for a non ecnl team that competes very well against ecnl teams.

Once you achieved a certain competitive level on the team you are playing for-everything else depends on the player.

Not sure what you mean by proven route?

Could you elaborate?

Anonymous said...

The point is the ECNL path is proven. Every kid on the u18 rosters signed along with most of the NPL teams from both academies. If your daughter is playing on one of those teams how can one say this is not a proven way? Show me a non ECNL club that has same proven path? Of course there are other ways but to say the above is not the most proven way is just not true.......

Anonymous said...

And not many non ECNL teams will compete from U15 and up..... If you have been through this before, you would have to agree.
