Well 11:12 looks like another shot across the bow at ECNL in US Soccer vs ECNL war for elite players. ECNL has been busy selling that top players can turn down DA slot and play ECNL and still play high school soccer. Now they need to try a new angle.
Christian Pulisic is the darling of the USSF right now and with PAC taking credit for him as confirmation of the DA legitimacy, they are a shoe in. PDA if they want it (which I am sure they do) is necessary for the success of the girls DA. It is not simply a if you build it they will come for girls. But PDA will add tremendous credibility if (when)they participate.
c'mon rumor mill...so which clubs are getting accepted?Or are you trying to start the rumor?
Head the rumor from a friend out west.
He said he thought it was a club in the Seattle area.
With GPS MA the official team going to Denver - NEFC and Oakwood would have had to pass on the spot.This is why i called it a black eye to the NPL. If you read the Boys ECNL release it is different than the girls model also which was the first black eye in my opinion. Member clubs will qualify teams into the ENPL in all five age groups each year, while member NPLs will qualify individual teams in all age groups based on performance in their respective NPLs the prior season.

"Rumors" (not to be confused "Runours" by some other fleeting group)is the third album by the North Carolina pop/rock band Arrogance. The album was released in 1976 as the band's first album on a major label, Vanguard Records. There was a re-release in 2000 under the Dixon Archival Records label.
Meant to type "Rumours", not "Runours" as the alternative, so hold up Spell-check Nazi if you are out there.
Love it!! Other Fleeting group....:)Hey, don't stop thinking about tomorrow...
Why would NEFC and Oakwood pass on NPL Finals, any ideas??
Sounders and Union are in...
I'm hearing they are going to start off with 3 DA clubs in each State 2 in NJ, NY, PA, MD, MA in the USYS Region 1 area. Think they are modeling USYS regions as well.
By Union, do you mean Philadelphia Union? I don't think they would have girls DA
3 in each state except in region 1 only 2??? well lets for the sake of discussion say 2 in NJ/PA/MD/NYE who gets them? lets also assume the MLS teams aren't playing in the sandbox because they would get an automatic.I agree PAC is in for PAE. Second club between PF and CFC no clear winner there. If the boys means something then of course CFC. But in fact that may hurt them because the boys isn't a great program. I think CFC gets the nod on coaches but Penn fusion puts a ton of kids into national programs and TM is in the loop there. To me the nod goes to PFNJ PDA for sure and Sky Blue NYE WCFC I think because Kaz is a fixture having coached several GNT some not too many years ago and the facilities and player success with a few YNT kids. And then...???NYM WNY flash might round it out. If so WCFC will be amazing.MD Bethesda is in I think. And then Spirit going to be MD team? VA team or DC team? Va I think McLean and Richmond United
How many posters would move their kid to a GDA club if their current club isn't one?I'm more interested in why the ECNL has a different model for boys why they never came up with this one from the beginning?
PAC is a shoe in. 3 other clubs who stand a chance are PF, LVU, CFC. Each of those 3 have their strong points and weak points from what I see as far as requirements go. Less than a month til we start hearing of acceptances.
The boys model is better clearly
Most top level players would move in my opinion if their club doesn't get it. Sure some will want to play HS soccer which yes it is part of the teen years for many but there's going to be a huge difference between HS soccer trainings/game vs GDA trainings/game. I know my daughter would opt for quality soccer all year vs 3 months of HS soccer. Really will depend on their future plans.
If your plan is to only play college soccer why do the DA?
College coaches recruit first from the DA
DA will fail on the girls side watch and see! 10 years from now USSF will be scratching there heads to get back to the way it was. No other sport in U.S. puts restrictions on playing H.S. USSF is trying to model the rest of the world but doesn't realize in most sport categories and Olympics games America is already #1 why change and follow others and re-invent versus doing what we do best invent a better model for the rest of the world to follow us just like every other sport.
The guy that says PAC is a shoein is the same moke that always has them in the top 4 in PA Eastheh- Yes, we are trying out for DA - and accepting if chosen. Should be a worthwhile process one way or the other
3:05 why choose GDA would be the same reason one would select ECNL.In theory the better players will look to play at the top of the pyramid vs other top players and by training together they push each other. Plain and simple.
"America is already #1" you say 3:51 - we have been and our 1st team filled with ECNL players at u20 just got drummed 5-0 yes I said FIVE to zero. That my friend doesn't happen if you are number 1 and that was recent.What other sport are we number 1 in that the rest of the world players? Basketball is the only sport and that is because it is the exact same model that is used in the world for soccer. Free to play to make money, not like we have here pay and pay and then pay some more to play college soccer that you don't even get for free.
Just because you are number one now has little bearing on where you will be in the future. Howd that work for apple in the nineties? You have to keep getting better. The european mens pro clubs have set up a system where players get thousands of hours of quality training by the time they get to pro level. While DA does not replicate this it does mimic its theoretical process given the hurdles of high school in america. I love it every ecnl girlThinks they will be one of the DA kids. If your kid isnt top 5 on A top ecnl club you are dreaming. There are lots of strong individuals outside ecnl. DA should pick best soccer players which will weed out many ecnl track stars. Gotta have those technical skills. So happy DA is coming. Bye bye ecnl.
6:46 I am also happy - not for our girls since it's to late for them but for the womens game going forward.
The absolute patheticness of some of the parents here is appalling. Stop living through your kids and recognize this is just a game.

No one truly knows where any team will fall in the ranks starting in the Fall. Player movement galore just happened. Wait and see and don't be an ass 4:15. I am the one who said PAC is a shoe in because I think they are but I am not the poster who ranked any team. Not naive enough to do that just yet.
7:36...couldn't have said it better. There's going to be a whole lot of disappointed parents on here when their little Suzie isn't on a national team or doesn't get a full ride to a D1 school.
Every time I see a post saying "bye bye ECNL" I think the poster is such a foolish tool. Of course the DA will replace the ECNL as the top of the Pyramid. But... it will be just like the ECNL. Many of the same clubs, with the same coaches, and the same politics will run the GDA just as they do the ECNL. Get a clue.Hopefully more outside ECNL kids will move into the GDA and the level will raise. But it is still a closed system that will create a lot of jealousy and negative talk.
1:24 I am here, and it was just a typo.... no harm, no foul. I get the nazi reference, but still not a fan of it.
I am absolutely appalled, amazed, speechless when I see posters say that if a girl can't play high school soccer, that's a bad thingAre you kidding me? You can't be serious if your daughter is looking to play in college....How many college coaches are coming to watch your daughter at school unless they already have her on their radar?Stop living through your kids!!!

It is not just playing the sport for your school. It is everything that goes with it. I know that not a lot of people show up to watch girls soccer but your friends are at home games to support you. Sometimes when you play your local rival the stands are even fuller and the local TV station is there. So it is just the pride of playing for your HS. The odds are very very low that a girl from the DA makes it to the national team. Just look at the boys side. It might happen years down the line but for our daughters it most likely will not. So if they want to play HS and not play DA you should let them. Then after HS season they go back to their NPL clubs and get recruited to play in college. If that is what they want to do.
@3:05 your question makes no sense. Why wouldn't they???? That's where college scouts will mainly be looking.
Nobody will tell their daughter what to do but if my daughter makes DA,I'll advise her not to play HS. There are a lot of unskilled players in HS and good players can get injured.
7:08The DA is allowing High School play, so that is not an issue until 2021/22The boys and girls side of soccer is like comparing apples and oranges. I do think that girls on DA will get the first looks for national team. Where best to look than at the DA players which will draw the best of the best. ECNL have many players that are not ECNL quality but are on the large roster anyway. The ones getting the looks now in ECNL are the players that dress weekly for games.The DA will have much more of a direct line to US Soccer and will be the go to for scouting the best players.
Did people not read the previous posts. It said DA would grandfather highschool soccer for current girls. That was the only thing keeping ecnl in the game. I do think ecnl will stay in biz because many colleges just want speed. But the upper echelon schools and national team pools will mostly pull from DA.
US Soccer is obviously doing whatever is necessary to bury ECNK. This has been obvious at the original meeting when they refused to give ECNL any role and now again with the change to allow DA players to also play high school ball. There is not going to be a DA and an ECNL, it is going to be either or left standing when the smoke clears.
Why is Boys ECNL different than girls? Probably because they already have a closed system in the DA and they don't believe that the quality will support 2 closed systems. Perhaps once ECNL admits defeat to the DA on the girls side, they will move to the same system for the girls. And that would be a huge home run for girls soccer. It wold allow not good enough for the DA bubble and perhaps not rich enough for the ECNL bubble to get in.I hope that this is the direction they go in. I actually am a fan of ECNL. They have set up a great business (yes, they make money!) that delivers quality platform to players looking for college exposure. If we could some how get these two (DA and ECNL) to cooperate, it would be best for everyone. The DA could leverage their structure for their teams to get exposure as not everyone is going pro or to the national team - plus, they could support those strong teams that are doing things right and get a look at kids that perhaps might have slipped through the cracks. There are many very good girls not playing ECNL. Once you get past the first 5-6 on some teams and 1-2 on some of the weaker ECNL teams, the girls are fairly interchangeable with the top girls outside of ECNL and in some cases, i would argue the girls outside are a huge uptick. L
This explains why some ecnl programs can't train and only scrimmage and try to put nothing but fast non skilled players on the field. It's a serious joke. Thank god for the DA.
I think ECNL will still exist. They're adding a boys side to make up for any lost business. US Soccer wants to make it clear that DA is the top program.
from U 12 blog"Anonymous said...what does Match Fit and New England Patriots have in common??Both are CHEATERS!!!Match Fit got caught once again trying to use older players for younger teams to try to win games.June 9, 2016 at 8:14 AM"It was u 12 team and u 13 player- smells of desperation - a u 12 game? is MFA serious? not even an important gamelast time a miscarded player was used a coach lost his license
Look the GDA said you can play high school soccer just can train with the GDA during the HS season same as now with the ECNL.We have something no other country in the world has in our College game. A legit development platform. They are even recruiting players from over seas to play the college game and getting a full ride. I don't buy they the college look for speed only, maybe a few coaches that like that part of the game and fits the style of coaching they are using. You have the same argument we have had for years the Non-ECNL club parents saying they are good for college as much as ECNL is. Now we are reading the same thing from ECNL.The GDA is in it to develop college players and future pro/NT players they are the top and the parents of u10/u11 players will start moving to these clubs just like they did with the ECNL not all. To think that the players playing GDA won't go D1 is crazy college comes before the NWSL, our pro league doesn't pay. USSF want the money instead of the ECNL and there is no reason they shouldn't get it and I believe they can provide a better product, there is no confusion who's on top and soon all the top players will want to play in the top league. For this age group it means - our kids will be Juniors and Sophomores when this kicks off - the top players will already be committed by then the others would still have to do the same thing work to be seen.
Watch USWNT....ECNL written all over that script!! Speed, speed and speed...that's why we need tactical and technical DA!!World's teams are catching up and will surpass us quickly!!
That's a bold move, 2:02, using up all your exclamation points in one post. I usually keep mine in reserve for the weekend! Oh. Crap.
1:16I thought I rad it as:If a GDA player opts to plau high school ball (under the grandfathered rule) she CANNOT train with GHDA for those 10 weeksSo therein lies the decision, even with the grandfathering - for current players.Your daughter has to join the GDA team in November after they have been working for 10 weeks already - and work uphill.
MFA cheated? I went back to check and there was nothing on the U-12 blog at that time and nothing marked "removed by administrator".
u 15 blog sorry - typohttp://youthsoccertalk.blogspot.com/2012/01/u11g-youth-soccer-u11-girls-youth.html?commentPage=6
You must be really bored to skip through these blogs, its time to sit back and enjoy your daughters final years and get a life. Seriously your spot checking U11 blogs!
MF DOC so shady.
Anybody playing-up this weekend in the EDP Showcase, should be a good experience. My daughters season did not end well, and getting out and playing, and perhaps winning, is a much better way to end her U14 adventure. Personally, I am a little saddened for her, and the girls, they worked so hard in the winter and spring, but such is fate.Failure smiles at all of us, all we can do is smile back...
The EDP Showcase is only 15 an up.
4:19 - I have been accused very recently of being the MF DOC... I assure you I am not. On occasion, I defend clubs when I read stupid, and random people bashing clubs like you just did.Your random bashing shows me that you put too much Windex into your Massengill applicator... You need to check your mixture going forward.
I was blinded by the light!
@419Why do u careAnd your reference. Now that's childish.
5:29 Join the club I have been tied to last count I think 10 teamsand all I do is post results -all of them i don't even pick and chooseGS4
Do you think it's ok that MF intentionally used older players in a younger age groups game to win? That's shameful and the DOC is responsible. I call that being shady. Also, making empty promises to parents about training sessions. MF should be giving refunds.

11:22 you are a coach? I never say my team because it'snot - it's my kid's team I'm just a supporter that pays the bills and a taxi cab driver that also happens to be her number 1 fan. PS. Just busting your horns.MF got a tough draw but for the kids it's a great draw as should have plenty of scouts that are interested in this age group and that's all that's important, right? Plenty of schools looking for forwards that can run and then finish that's a positive and plenty of schools looking for solid defenders that can find forwards, remember not every coach likes to play out of the back and possession soccer can be anywhere between 2 passes and 30 passes as long as it generates a goal,why pass the ball 20 times and not generate an opportunity when you can generate an opportunity in 2? Come on don't kid yourself guys.these coaches want big physical CBs super fast FBs and mid/wing players great attacking mids that can dribble past players and forwards that can finish. Any player that can add some flash and shows 100% effort the entire time will look great nothing else will matter it's test time and results are what matters am I wrong?
7:48 PM - You must be so jealous of MatchFit that you keep bringing up nothing. Don't you have your back to wax? Or maybe you still have some gummi bears in your armpit hair?You may be the single biggest idiot in the history of this blog, and that's saying a lot.Don't go away mad, just go away.Moron
6:56 on June 9 - A common misconception, which I too find hard to avoid. Bruce originally wrote "cut loose like a deuce", and Manfred Mann sang "revved up like a deuce", both referring to a deuce coupe, a 1932 Ford coupe, which is a preferred body model for a hot rod, not a hygiene product or an a-hole.
9:31 LOL, I am 5:29 - I know it's 'deuce' - apparently not everyone does!Thanks for the solid history lesson!
Good technical players are sought after, since ECNL has apparently not produced that many, nor do most bother to teach it, if they even know how, it ain’t easy soccer, but its beautiful to watch when played correctly, and at the very-elite levels it kicks ass on your average big, fast, and fastest type of teams.
I am not jealous, and nor is the other poster (or posters), I guarantee you, of MFA. We are just stating facts that are based on our experience. You can choose to believe the facts or not.There are a lot of great choices for our girls out there, choose wisely, my daughter did.
MFA can play a great passing game,i have seen it against our team.However they are not comfortable holding the ball in the back and are in to much of a hurry to get down the field.There fast forwards out run there suport.Midfild very strong but backs often bypass middies.I wish you lots of luck in Cali,play smart and you will be fine.
First off I like to congrats MF and East Meadow on going out to C.A. This blog is made up of mostly NY, NJ, PA we should be cheering them on and hoping they represent the area well. If they do represent the area well and attract more coaches to attend there games in the future it only benefits us here by getting more looks even if your not on either one of those teams. Now those are the true hopeful facts we should looking at.
You aren't stating facts at all, 12:04. It's all innuendo. Facts are things like, teams involved and time/date of the game. Jersey number of the overage player. Impact on the game, if any. And how you know any of this.Otherwise you're just another troll doing an internet drive-by.I and others would love to bury the team for using illegal players, but give us something to work with here.
1:58pm not naming players names. Brought a 13 year old to 12 year old game several times. That is a fact. EDP is aware of this infraction since referees had to report this illegal activity. Email EDP to confirm
1:52 Don't forget VA and CT and I think MD but I agree mostly NJ and PA.People like to say a team just kicks the ball down the field. here is my question to you are they organized in the back are they hard to break down as a team? The easiest style of play to teach is a counter - just watch some soccer more teams than not are using this tactic. Strong in the back and get the ball up the field as quick as possible is very much a part of the game. if we want our kids to think on their own and be creative - watch a game on TV at the COPA or the EURO lots of counter attacking,so what do you expect a back to do? Hold the ball or move it up the field as quickly as possible? The teams that want to keep the ball and take their time attacking play a different game not as many.
2:27 - No one here cares. You are jealous, or you have maggots loose in your brain. No more snorting Pixie Stix for you.You keep bringing up nothing.... you have to have something else to hang your toupee on... this one has run it's course.
2:33 thanks DOCanswering 1:58you cheat , people talk
The MFA DOC would have very little to do with the two teams playing U12 EDP, one of which is no longer even an MFA team.
Why are we talking U12 please get over it this group will be U15 or U16 come this fall. Are people that obsess that are bring things up about a club 4 age group's down. There is still a lot of soccer this month to finish just relax.
2:38 - I am not the DOC, I have replied a few times.Figures someone that's calling out the wrong person here, would continue to bring up a u12 incident on a u14 blog, over and over and over again.I hear that they are giving away free napkins at Taco Bell all day today... you need to get over there before they run out.

Thanks DOCWe all know it's you.What do you continue to cheat?
phone correction- hate this phoneWhat and why -
5:35 Can you be any more dense? I am no more the DOC than you are the guy who has a lot of friends that love and respect you.Maybe this will help you understand the words that I am typing... you are a stupid moron that refuses to accept English as the language of the United States. If you keep on referring to me incorrectly, then you will be better off speaking to your dog and trying to explain, how your parents had kids even though they are brother and sister.Idiot, I am not the DOC, and you need to get a life.You, are a complete loser. Do you really need to take even more abuse?No offense, but your last name should be Kardashian
No one cares but you are a very rude and unprofessional person so I hope you are not the DOC or any coach working with our children. Are those insults supposed to be some form of British wit? Good riddance!
9:10 - I have been getting more rude as this dimwit refuses to stop repeating him or herself. I assure you I am just a parent, who has nothing to do with coaching. You should be all over that moron who refuses to let go of something that does not belong here, or anywhere for that matter.
9:17 someone thats getting really frustrated can be one of the follow- actually the DOC- trying so hard to pretend he is not- a parent of MF, probably a puppet to the DOC
9:36 Seriously? You must be Hitler's son. Can you prove you're not? You think the DOC would give a crap about a complete loser like you? I am getting a kick out of making you look like the dumb-ass you are.Nice try - I'm done with you. Tell your mother/sister I said to stop putting too much mustard on the Big Macs.
NPLTeams qualifying for Nationals and NOT goingJust bad form.
I would guess the person making the stupid posts is the old coach,or a bitter parent who is leaving.Please let it go .
Time to pull up the big boy pants fellas!!
No parents leaving are bitter trust me. It sounds like it's a few of those staying that are. Why you keep entertaining the idiots posts about the DOC is beyond me. You're becoming everything you're calling this poster by responding each time something is written. You're staying and happy others are leaving and are happy.
8:11 You'll be bitter this time next year. Unless you're on a team that the coach never subs out his kid and her friend, and you're a friend. Center mid, and center forwards = coaches' kid's position, and never coming off the field to boot.
Witnessed some ODP soccer today. Seems to me NJ soccer is not that strong or the ODP training needs improvement. Disappointing.
8:03 A large amount of girls from last year did not return. Training not strong. only train from April, when the final team is picked, til June. July is the Rhode Island Regional camp. NJ needs to train like Pa and Delaware. Those states pick their rosters in November and train up until June tournament. Pay the same amount of money. Sad, a lot of strong girls in past. Politics also involved in picking Regional team.
8:03 So what states did you see play and was the quality better on different states?For me and thins is no knock on ODP - I pay over 2k for my kid to play club ball not sure another 1.5 for ODP is worth it. Yes if you are on a state association team that goes to the region 1 semi finals followed by the nationals it would be well worth but with all the travel we do on top of the 2k ODP to rich for my blood.
And NJ beat PA yesterday so not really sure what talking about
We bailed on ODP, it probably looks good on the 'soccer resume' but 3 years of it is enough for my daughter. A lot of people disagree who are currently there, and that's good too.There are still some talented '01 young ladies there, but maybe a quarter of what was just 3 years ago in my opinion.As 9:05 said earlier.. we can find better things to to do with the time and the money than NJ ODP. With ECNL tuition, travel, varsity, and living life, it just wasn't worth it anymore.
Easy 9:25. NJ went 2-4 over the weekend in the '02 group (with one of the wins against a CT team that was 0-3 with a -11 GD, so not exactly stellar.
NY teams looked good at ODP
ODP is not drawing many of the top kids NJ. In addition to the ECNL players, many others are finding less expensive options for extra training and visibility.
What are these no expensive options that afford visibility and quality training?
I was referring to PDP programs, run by the leagues, US Soccer, and groups like Next Gen. ODP is a great option for next level kids who can't make an ECNL team or get invited to PDP events. I'm certainly not an expert, and would love to hear other thoughts.
Yes, I think PDP is free - other than paying for the travelYou have to be recommended - it's not a tryout like ODP
Although not the case in NJ, NYC area, or Philly area, ODP still is the one of the few options for players in less densely populated areas. The farthest north ECNL goes in the NE is Boston. Girls in Burlington, VT; Manchester, NH; or Portland, ME for example, have no other option, although I suppose players could make the long commute to Boston for an ECNL club. NH, ME, and VT all were represented at the ODP event in NJ over the weekend.
And a lot of politics.
11:08 - Same goes for Western NY and Western PA.
ODP definitely not worth it. My daughter is doing it now. It is money, money, money, but for players that are on small club teams, maybe they have a different view.
NYCSL the only NPL doing a PDP for NJ/NY teams (STA, NJ Crush, PSA, and MF C team)EDP has it's TIP programNorthEast Girls NPL has none - hoping for ECNL roster is their option or they do ODP.NextGen how does one participate for this? Tryout? or is it like the USSF training sessions coaches send who they want?
NJ ODP horrible, not worth the money. Talent not there. Sad. There are so many talented girls in NJ too. The games were horrendous. ODP could be a great program but it is run like any other company, Politics
Next Gen invitations are from recommendations, and yes there are tryouts. My child has done the program and loved it. I feel it was great training. They have a school release program which appears to me to coincide with DA program, which focuses on soccer year round. If your child is interested. But when you get to high school and your child wants to join other sports this will interfere. I highly recommend Next Gen. There are advancement opportunities to be seen by several foreign coaches. Can get a little pricey when traveling abroad though.
Next Gen is tremendous but only open to a few kids. Meredith Rooney is one of the best trainers out there.
No disrespect but when people talk politics aren't they talking recommendations? if not what's the difference?Also recommendations from who? every club or Next Gen clubs?My point is - if the coach on my kid's club has no idea what this is or isn't a fan let's say he thinks it's a waste how does one get recommended? They don't, right?ODP love it or hate it - it is OPEN to everyone, the only program that is open to everyone. You play on a team -if the team is good you go to Delaware to play in a regional tournament (Final 4), if the teams wins that then you go to nationals. This has nothing to do with training - it is a platform to be seen just like ECNL is. Unfortunately, people expect ODP to do what it's not built to do. it does the exact same thing as the ECNL but yet it is viewed as evil,by who i wonder? They say play it simple when playing the game, i say keep it simple when you evaluate a program.People can say politics so I say what are recommendations then? if my kid plays then i say there are no politics it's sour milk, if my kid doesn't play then I say there are politics. What happen to just my kid didn't fit their vision.I have been saying ECNL is like ODP for years, it's just playing for a club instead of your state. They both want the best players to push each each other - what you learn depends on the coach at both.GS4
This is your best work, GS4. Thanks.
12:54 the "Politics" comments was ODP Regional team. Same girls are picked every year for Regional team when kids go to RI camp. Not worth going to Regional camp to hopefully make the regional team that is why some kids don't come back to ODP tryouts. And yes they are good. If you don't know the right people , you don't get in.
Next Gen recommendations are from any club around. My daughter was recommended from her town club coach and made the team. They can recommend any child. It is then up to that child to make the squad. It is from their talent not the recommendation whether they continue. Some make it , some don't .
When I coached our travel program, Next Gen would send me emails all the time (Still do) asking me to invite all my players. Never asked for top players, just wanted all players to sign up. yes decent training, Meredith is just ok. This is a money grab!
1:22 it is my understanding the kids goon a bus to RI - how do we really know what went on? I believe my kid but at the end of the day she's u14 this year. Maybe those kids are the best of the crop OR they have what the ODP people are looking for OR maybe it really is politics? Players previously selected have an advantage if they are any good it's up to the others to take what's theirs. A player that made regional that couldn't hang would not be back the next year.1:25 I get it but my point is what if a coach has no i dea what next gen is or doesn't value it? what then how do you get your kid there if they will never be recommended by the coach?We are talking about positives here? why make something a negative when it truly isn't.To me ODP/ECNL are one in the same - both built to have the best players push each other to fast forward development.You make your state ODP team - if you have the goods the regional ODP people already know the kid's name. The camp put's the kid on the field with other players to see if they still stand out. I won't get into ECNL since it's been well documented on this board great players pushing each other. Both have rosters over 18 and both only dress 18.ODP is a supplement to club ball to give the same opportunity to showcase their skills that the ECNL players have nothing more nothingless, once ODP was the top of the pyramidNext year with GDA - ODP will still be a supplement for players not in the GDA. GS4
12:28"The (ODP) games were horrendous..."Horrendous how?
1:59 Here is one example. And there are others but don't want to trash the kids. Can't tell you how many times I saw a defender or midfielder receive the ball, turn and kick it as far as they could - without pressure...and to flash back to rec, the parents on the sideline saying "Great job".
"Players previously selected have an advantage....."Oh, like the US Women's National Team? That can't be right.Wherever your daughter goes college included) she has to make an impression. YOU can help figure out how to help her do this. Or you can just complain.
ODP Regional camp should be by invitation only. Not open to any ODP player that parents want to pay an extra $600 for crappy training . At the regional camp, if you dont get picked on the regional squad(which get choosen twice a day) then you are pretty much just a spectator 1/2 the day. ODP is a money grab pure and simple. If you think differently great.
2:42 How do you know this? were you at any camps?Invitation only then we have even more politics. no?The kids don't go for the training so yes it's going to be crappy that's not what they are selling, the kids go to shine and have a shot at the regional team that's what you pay the $600 for plus you have an audience with college coaches. Time away from mom and dad to play soccer well maybe not for your kid. yes your kid is a spectator twice a day knowing what they did wasn't good enough (message sent) so they need to step it up without mom and dad telling them what they need to do, pick yourself up and try again that's all.Money grab maybe, i just would never call it that. it's an opportunity for those that want to try playing in the real world with no mom and dad where life isn't always fair need to pick yourself up if you didn't make the first round so you make the second - sounds very similar to the ECNL argument of 24 player rosters, no? Work hard in practice so you can make the game day roster or you are just a spectator why isn't this called a money grab? Why is this supposed to be acceptable? Paying for both with the potential of your kid watching.Thank you 2:30 - I agree 100%2:29 you talking about the big boy tournaments COPA and UEFA saw a bunch of that going on. PS. I do hate that when parents say great job or scream great ball when it was a pass to the other team. I agree.I'll tell you what i hate. Speaking of our MNT, we have the ball playing keep away we play the ball back to the goalie who boots it to the other team WTF? Look our kids are u14 and they will make plenty of mistakes that's reality and some just have a longer leash than others that's also reality.GS4
We recently had a Jonestown event on our team, some of the better players (and their guardians) drank the magical ECNL potion, and wha-la they are now all getting scholarships! We are staying, to see if the club will get a GDA next year, if they do, my kid will be in the best position to secure a roster spot, if not, well....
They are getting scholarships to play ECNL? Do a lot of clubs pay for tuition/ travel?
RE: ODP, PDP, NextGenNextGen does not require a recommendation, just contact them, go to a session. The age groups are great from 2006-2002. I am not so sure about the 2001s. I know that great kids are pulled out for extra sessions (regional) from NextGen and then even for their select teams. The quality of girls is very good once you make it to the more select sessions. In general the quality of training is also very good, but in certain areas only few 2002s attend, so your mileage may vary. When it comes to value - it's much cheaper than ODP, and probably closer to home than ODP (also year round + camps).PDP - NYCSL - that is typically by invite from club DOC, but there are other ways to get in. There are few people from PDP that do camps and can recommend (even if you are not in NY NPL). Also there are centers of excellence (same price and value as NextGen) but they start at 2003. They are year round with special invites for select members to tournaments, festivals, foreign trips. CoE is a way to get into PDP from a non-member clubhttps://www.nyclubsoccerleague.com/html/pdp/centers_of_excellence.aspDoing well at PDP gets you into a select PDP team and perhaps with an invite to a ID2 camp. Although PDP is initially for NY NPL member clubs, once you atre in, you can switch clubs and still get invites. They like talent. Quality of training at COE and PDP is top notch. High end UEFA licenses. Smaller groups of 6, and an occasional scrimmage if the quality can be achieved.PDP and NextGen have flexible policy where you can attend a make-up session at a different location, or even in a different season if you must. They will not penalize you emotionally or otherwise if you have a school or club event at the same time. Price per session with PDP/Next Gen comes out to be ~$25/hour maybe more in winter when sessions are indoors. NextGen for girls is basically Meredith - who is great with girls, and great with mental motivation.ODP: sessions are in winter (frequently cancelled) and once a week in spring. There are tryouts (for which you must pay), they insist you attend as many tryouts as possible, but the tryouts seem to be totally inconsistent - spread out over 4 locations and 4 dates. Many training sessions are more tactical than technical, if you like to see sessions with 30+ trainees per coach with coach talking for 5+ minutes and then 15 girls watching when 15 girls do a tactical drill - this is the place for you. If you want to see the content of the training sessions register for NJYS ODP under Team App:https://www.teamapp.com/Not attending more than one tryout and training session is not excused. Any conflicts between ODP vs club - ODP is supposed to take precedence - so you are penalized. I think the value of ODP is low compared to its price ($40+/hour?). According to old timers, goal is to get into Region 1 ODP (not state) as that carries more prestige, and can open doors, based on the coach.
4:31 look at it this way.better players because they had the opportunity to be the better players.Now others will have that opportunity - it's a win win for the kids that left and the kids that stayed. GS4
thanks 4:46 good readGS4
Anyone have or know of players getting discounted /free tuition based on soccer at private high schools???
Can't be sport based, only by financial need...but sometimes it seems the good athletes are more needy.
^^ second that^^ I would know....
I have heard instances of about 1.5-5K taken off the annual cost for soccer.Also heard you can get a full ride for multiple sports + academic prowess. I'd be shooting for that one for child 2.
4:46 comments re:pdp very accurate including switching clubs. Your club coach cannot hold that over you. It is purely talent based. Once you get to the proper pdp, sessions are free. If you make the select teams you may have to pay tournament entry fees. To me its the best of all the programs. My daughter has done that and odp and the talent of the girls at odp is a couple notches below pdp.
Okay 4:46 so how does my girl get a tryout to show what she can do?Oh yeah she can't because she has to be nominated by her coach is this correct?ODP can be be more than a few notches below - but my kid can show up and tryout and if she has the goods it should be easy for her to move up the chain and get an audience with the right people, correct?PS. isn't regional ODP team free also as well as the FL camp, you just have to get there. I'm not for ODP but to keep it real it is the only fair option out of all of them. Yes coaches nominate players that they feel have talent and there is nothing wrong with that, but they won't nominate a player they don't see at that level even though another coach might and this is where ODP comes in to play.I don't see ODP as a training platform. The development in ODP is to put players of like mind together and let them push each other to speed up development. The player needs to do technical by themselves or with their team at the younger ages, now it's tactical and putting the technical skill to work.GS4
I actually like that, GS4Sometimes the tactical is lacki ng within the clubsEverryone talks of soccer IQ but is MINDSET, VISION, TEAM PLAY being taught enough at the lower levels?I understand the need to stress technical, but there is room for some of the other. Speaking personally our team flushed quite a few winnable (and important) games by lacking sense and approach on the tactical end. While it is not ABOUT the wins, at certain points when you DESERVE to advance on ability, you'd like to.Cheers. Keep up the good work here - or if you move on to another forum
GS4:I'm not sure what age group your kid is in. If 2003 - there is the "COE" route. If your kid is older, reach out to John Curtis from NYCSL (https://www.nyclubsoccerleague.com/html/pdp/tech_director.asp) via email, and let him know you are not part of a member club, if there are any camps run by PDP coaches that could be used to observe your daughter as she is too old for COE. Remember that COE is once a week.. PDP is once a month, many who attend PDP still do COE from what i've heard - that 4th session a week may be really important in development.Also reach out to Meredith from Next Gen - they run training and amazing camps (she runs seasonal training, camps are done by international coaches). They will give you feedback if you ask. They have a number of standouts that train with them that are part of ID2 as well as National Team (amazing kids from south Jersey, I believe). I do believe these kids were recruited when NextGen was the original "TIP" for EDP.If you look at the sessions done by both organizations, about 80% is about first touch, passing, creativity and speed of play. Remaining 20% is mental and tactical - at least at these age groups. This is in huge contrast to what ODP offers (IMHO). Perhaps someone with experience at Region 1 ODP camp can shed some light on what they do, when they train, and overall cost/experience?
Why is NJ Wildcast Averbuch under the new age group of u15? There are several girls on team roster that are 2001, which is u16 age group. One of the girls played on the 2001 ODP state team with my daughter.
Then they (current '01s) wont be on Averbush in NovemberFury, maybeClubs have a choice where to place their teams.
It's not where they place the team it's where they place the points! All teams will be different.
Regional ODP camp is all about identification of players for the team that competes in boca Raton over thanksgiving week. It's not about development.
10 returning Averbuch players are 2002 and those 10 will play with Averbuch Team at U15(2002) next year.The 5 2001 Averbuch players will move up to play for Fury 2001(U16) Team next year.
I think they should all practice their juggling this summer, with HS, club and boys, that’s a lot to keep in the air...
1:39 you might be right - but my kid is super pumped and already told me her games are going to be packed with her friends cheering for them - I was not going to get into HS soccer but I guess I have no choice? I think I'm starting to see the GDA vs HS argument now - for me I'm with you 1:39 I would rather her not but after listening to her bring this up and talk about I have no choice but to support it.GS4

Hey GS4,Did you enjoy the Crush v. NYSC Playoff game, did your daughter play well?
If I have the right weekend 4:45 - yes I had a good time at field 4.if you are from NY not upstate NY like NYSC then you know exactly where I was and yes my kid had a blast.GS4
Okay still don't have an idea - 116 is closer but i prefer to drive 30 mins to field 4.
GS4,Freshman soccer is tuff to watch.My kid was fortunate enough to play varsity last year,however not playing her regular position.They had a great season,gained alot of confidence ,and proved she can play with the big girls.Was also in great condition.If you can keep reminding her to play smart ,no kick and ru, no hogging and hope she can stay injury free she can get benefits out of school ball and have some fun with her friends.

...and STA should have beaten Pequa.....
Even though Massapequa won the NPL playoff, they still suck, and so do you.
Easy palPlenty of things to do in Colorado other than soccer.
Yes, and don't even need to go all that way, either!
3:21 I agree but any girl going to play at the Finals will have something most kids dream about. Travel across the country to play for a national title. lot's of money for a U14 youth soccer that most will never remember. BUT to travel by plane and to play for a national title those kids will never forget.Massapequa might suck but they are playing for a national title just like our boys made the Semi-Finals playing like crap last night and those girls will build memories to last a life time.I guess you missed out? No worries talk to your coach and collect some money you can apply to the US Club regional and if you win you can go to Colorado also same NJ Wildcats and Atletico andplay for a US Club National Cup.

Happy Fathers Day to all the positive role-models out there, the dad that supports his child, and her team, the dad that accepts the decisions made by their coach, and they're club, who cheers great plays, by either team, who welcomes opposing teams parents, who acknowledges that his child is not the best in the world, not even in the game he just watched, who doesn't hit on the opposing teams moms, even though she was checking him out first, who doesn't gossip about other players, even though they suck, who makes fun of the other coach for talking 14 year olds through the whole game, and finally, who doesn't try to destroy the current team by bad-mouthing everyone and everything that moves, and sometimes things that don't move at all.Cheers!
Happy Father's Day to the other 99% of the Dadd out there too!
8:11 Why do you say that? because we are talking about the final a game before the NPL finals that they happen to be in? Yup I guess that's what happens when you win people talk.and of course we all know next year everything changes but this year it's going to be 1 or 2 teams from either NJ or PA that joinFC Virginia, Massapequa and GPS MA in Denver
99%, hahahahahahahaha, more like 70%
Any score in the wildcats games?
Wildcats - 2LVU - 0
Great job Cats going back to back NPL league and Playoff Champs! Continue to answer your critics on game day with your performance! Great finish to a great U14 year! Now on to Colorado and Nationals once again!
Colorado , where the wildcats will lose.
4:32:Whether 'Cats win or lose in Colorado, the fact is, they earned the trip to Nationals. Both they and LVU left it all out on the field today. As Frank Sinatra used to sing, "you can't take that away" from them.I hope your child will experience that at some point..it is fun, and great experience for them.
Qualifying for NPL Finals and National Cup is an accomplishment in itself. Like making the Final Four or BCS Playoffs ALL the Teams that make those trips and play in those events are winners. Nationals is an event that celebrates every Team that wins their way there!Congrats to all the NPL Playoff winning Teams from Today! And have a blast at Nationals in Colorado Girls!!!
Say what you want, but if the history is correct on GotSoccer or other sites, the Wildcats have proven to be dominant. History says they have lost 1 game in the past year in all of their losses (4 total I believe) and the other 3 losses came in tournaments versus teams where the Wildcats were flighted in the highest of the highest flights. I don't have a horse in this race but I think it can be said that the team is legit and all of the people who beg to differ need to look at the results. They speak volumes. Stop bashing them because of their parents (I have seen them bashed constantly on this board) and respect what these young ladies (8th graders and maybe some freshmen) from NJ do. It's quite impressive if you look at it as an outsider and objectively. On that note, Happy Father's Day to the male posters on the board. Back to drinking. Lol.
Honestly if the cats coach wasn't such a pompous d'bag I'd root them on. Onto u15
6:10 Thanks Wildcat parent. It has been said here many times with many examples to support, it is the parents (and coach) that make it very hard to root for them. Nothing about the kids.
9:53 Honestly who cares what we think and who we root for.

And plenty of soccer and some great events left to play for this summer before we move on to U15. USYSA Region 1 Tournament, USYSA Nationals, National Cup, and NPL Finals!!!!

All those away Semi's and Finals (USYSA Region 1 Tournament, USYSA Nationals, National Cup, NPL Finals, ODP Semi-Finals and ODP National Championships)-- Can someone please re-visit with me again how it cost less than playing to ECNL club if your club team is attending 2 or 3 of those events?
Good analysis of PA Classics chances of getting GDA from the 15 pageRemember who chooses the DA clubs? USSFWho is the darling of the MNT right now? Christian Pulisic. Which club is credited with developing Pulisic? PACWho is the USSF appointed head of the girl's NTC and YNT scouting in our state association? Todd HoffardFor which club is Hoffard the 16-17 00 coach? PACThere it is. The big question is who gets the second (possibly third???) spot.
