It looks like wildcats were sold a bag of crap by their coach about this is the way to develop these girls. 2,years ago they would have muscled past this team. Now parents are left with lies about development.

Congratulations, THISTLE, for semi-finaling at SpiritHope to see you in final vs PDA. Enjoy.
Bloggers on here were correct about Boston Breakers skill set and ability as a team (very good passing and physical). I think parents on both sides enjoyed watching a hell of a game today that was decided on a late goal. ENCL is well represented by the Breakers and how well coached they are. Also watched the South Shore win over PA Classics which was also decided by a goal in the closing minutes. Thought of the two, Breakers were the better team. Is that the case ECNL guys?PL parent
Breakers are considered a mid level ecnl team at this point. Especially after losing some significant players at end of last year.
PDA Ajax.... New players, old players.... Result would've been the same.
Interesting early scores from Spirit. I think it's playing out like most would have expected. PL vs BB should have been a semi final game. BB, PF, PL, SS were clearly the best teams going into the weekend. Was able to watch some teams I see mentioned out here. Much talk about PL and BB losing good players. Today we will get to see how they do without them vs teams they played in the Spring with them. Good luck to all and safe trip home for those traveling.
PL Parent - Boston was top tier NorthEast NPL Pre-ECNL team they finished 3rd and opted not play in the post season. They scored the most goals in the league 83 that was good enough for 20 more than the 2nd place who also played 3 more games that Boston's 21. They also scored 72 goals in 21 GS games so I would say this was a top tier team at U13. Player movement might have made them a better team or it may have dropped them to a mid level team as 12:08 said only time will tell, so far a good startLooking back at our LV odds (8/13 5:58) if you put something down on the below you are still in the moneyPenn Fusion 4-1South Shore 4-1Boston Breakers 15-1BYRC 18-1GS 4 Life

Boston breakers were on the decline. Penn fusion not much better. They had a difficult time with better teams and tend to run up the scores against lesser teams. I can't see either of these teams being anywhere tops in their own league. It does not mean that they won't win this tourney
3 monthes ago PF beat BB 5-0. Today they lost 1-0. Either BB is a lot better despite their "losses" or PF is a lot worse despite their additions. I can tell you having watched both teams yesterday, one is clearly on a different level. Suprised the score was so close this morning.

GS 4 Life- you failed to mention the amount of goals BB gave up. How do you score so many goals, yet finish 3rd? Great fields and weather this weekend.
They gave up 35 goals (6th fewest in the league of 12). Well my guess is when you play attacking soccer you leave yourself open for counters and of course mistakes can kill when you play top teams, no?

- If you get a chance, watch the NJ Wildcats play a game. It's like the whole team (Coach, parents and players are on Amp). They play the entire game like they are down 3 goals and there is 2 minutes to play.They try to kick every ball as far as possible. The ball is always in the air. I think I saw twice where they had 3 consecutive passes. It's basically a kick ball game. If you get a chance to see them, stop and watch. It's like the Jerry Springer Soccer Academy. -Very good game this morning between BB and PF. BB was the better team today and deserved to play SS in final. These 2 teams will play each other in ECNL league play, would expect them to split.Agree with earlier post, fields and weather was great. Thought officials were consistent and fair. Good opening weekend.GS 4 life- You here this weekend? I know how heavily you rely on GS. Was wondering if you gave any of these teams the Eye Test or are basing your top 20 on scores only.Finals prediction. BB wins 3-2.
Top 20 scores only - my opinion is just an anonymous opinion.
Have to disagree. Watched the Breaker/PF semi final this morning. I must say Boston was outplayed. Their goal was a breakaway very early on and I believe it was one of only two shots on goal they had in the game. Penn Fusion did possess the ball better but were on the unlucky side of several chances. A few just inches wide of post and a crossbar. Watching Breaker/South Shore final. Will provide insight after.

That's true, I heard a Wildcat game by ours this weekend. PF NPL with a chance to play 2 ECNL teams this weekend and advance. Just goes to show that putting ECNL on the end of your team name doesn't make you good. Some clubs are building multiple skilled teams in each age bracket. PF Club of to a good start. Interested to hear Breakers vs South Shore recap.
2 Penn Legacy 1 NJ Wildcats
NJ Wildcats time to move on.
Come on now. They almost tied today!!!
Wildcats are who they are. They are on par with NJ B and C teams (PDA and MF). Never were more than that. No longer F1 material. Although I now see PDA North NPL, NYSE, PL as the best non ECNL teams in there states. They can round out F1 brackets and not be embarrassed.
Would like to see a matchup between PL and PAC based on results from this weekend. Appear to now be on the same level playing level.
were on par with B teams, I would suggest more with C team now. Did not add players. Top players need to look to leave. I was in same situation and left my club. I see the benefits with playing on NE NPL team already
Watched some of PL vsWilcats game today and you are way off.Very even game with both eams having good looks and ball ws on the ground about the same for each team.
So you are saying PL plays just as much kickball as NJ then?
shows how bad PL is then
FINAL0 CFC 011 PENN FUSION NPL 01
Just keep hiding behind that anonymous tag as you rip other teams. PL loses to BB 2-1 and won the two other games they played, and your going to put PL down. Lets see you list who your daughter plays for. Somehow I doubt it that would ever happen, since you simply hide behind the screen like a child behind a mommy's apron. If the Breakers, FC Virginia or South Shore wants to thump their chest, that's fine and they deserve too, since PL suffered one goal losses to each of those teams and did not prove they are better. Someday maybe your daughter will be able to play for a better team and you won't be ashamed to say it. But as for now, please remain as anonymous as your daughter's team will always be.PL parent
Maybe PL brought a medicine ball. This blog needs NJ Wildcats for comical relief. I enjoy the coaches posts about exposure. They play in an EDP league with PDA 4th team and lose to them. Have not played in a semi final game since U12.
Hey PL guy, give us your assessment of Wildcats.
No matter what system you play in. you have to be able to put string more than 4 passes together consistently. If you can't do that, you are not a well trained team. No matter how many games you win.

Real Sounders lost 2 games in 2nd bracket. How are they top 20.
Who replaces them? SJEB??
That is why I kept them in it for now -they will be next to go
How about PF NPl, MF NPL or Connecticut FC. You guys need to get out more.
Stop looking at GS points. That is why these tournaments are too top heavy in the brackets.
If Wildcats lose any more players they will have to go by the name Wildcat. Down to 13 players. No tier 1 players. New players are projects and dreamers. Coach's abilities directly related to how much he can whine and moan the girls to play better. That's not coaching. Club leaders need to change direction with this team and put in a fresh voice or this will implode. Look to see the NJSA team now branded as Wildcats sliding players over. But some of those players left Wildcats to go to NJSA. Awkward for them to be asked to go back to a team they left largely to hear a different coaching voice. Team on fumes. Fire sale on the horizon.
To answer 3:11 question. We have played the Wildcats three times in the last year (2 wins and a tie), and has been a different experience each time. First game was played in a mud puddle at Jeff, so both teams were playing kick and run. Second game the Wildcats were extremely physical (especially on defense with big centerbacks), but they seemed to wear down in second half and gave up four goals (losing 4-2). Today's game they passed well in the beginning and took an early one goal lead. Wildcats's do have good team speed and one girl with a huge foot and she is dangerous on set pieces. It does seem they have as many good athletes as other teams (including PL), but for some reason, struggle some in the second half. That being said, the PL team was fortunate that the game wasn't tied up in the last minutes. Ball was bouncing around and sat on the PL goal line with many players flailing at it till it was cleared. As I have mentioned before on this blog, their parents have never been over the top when we have played them. Coach seems to stay calm and keeps coaching during game also. Sorry if its a poor assessment, but I am just a parent.PL Parent
3:35 I do have PF NPL in - how many games have the others played at u14 so far? Be more specific MF has 2 NPL teams and which CFC Arsenal or West Orange which one is better after the United ECNL team? Come on mr I know every team's roster on the face of the earth at u14. GS Stink!! of course. I thought we all agreed for it to be a starting point? Ajax can't claim to be in the top 20 the other's haven't played yet. So give me a team I missed that has played at u14.
PL parent. It seems odd to me that your assessment of this team and description of these games seem more to with size. Big kick and speed and nothing was said regarding the teams technical ability to get out of pressure or touch on the ball or spacing on the field. How can you evaluate your own team if you donot know what to look for.

At U14 and with so much movement about PDA and MF, Wildcats could have been and should have been the big winner attracting players but instead they are down to 13 and their newest players are long shots from MOSA level teams. Their team style is hard to figure as the previous post spells out. There is a reliance on the big kicker and to be fair there are 2 players who always seem to play the ball down and with touch and even flair. One of them however is too small or more specifically too slow and not explosively quick enough to gain from her nice deception. The Wildcat backs are the weakest link when playing top teams in state and out of state. Too slow and what they think is composure and calm on the ball is really just too slow two and three touch. Way too slow and the outcome of the "composure" is typically a nothing ball that follows. Defensively they are too slow a foot and lacking agility. They lose their center on an eyelash fake or feint.I agree with the previous post. Need a change on the coaching line and the parents are no different then many teams. Maybe just a bit more anxious or hopeful. In time, they will join the other ex-Wildcat parents who also are "better for the experience" but yet have moved on.
5:03 It seems to me that you are looking for me to degrade the Wildcats in some fashion. And by not doing so, I am degrading the ability of my daughters team. Do they run triangle passing lanes like PF or the Breakers? No they do not, but many teams don't and most teams have styles to fit their coaches plans or their teams physical attributes. Just because I won't disparage a team's style of play to fill your need to criticize them, shouldn't mean I do not know what good soccer is and when its being played. You obviously know all these elements and your daughter must be incredible. Please let me know when your next game is, so we can be as well educated as you. Without sounding like a braggart. My son played for Classics Academy team (might be a little technical skill involve there) and my daughter is an excellent player (but still probably not technical enough for you). So over the last 11 years I might have seen some good soccer played at a high level to know how well a team is coached. But I do not need to defend my thoughts here, it is your need to disparage 13 year old girls that is sad and kind of creepy.
Sorry 503. I forgot to sign off on my last post. I know that's important to youPl parent
pl parent. It was not meant to be a slight on wildcats. I could care less about this team. I was critizing your knowledge of the game.
Pretty sad showing from the Long Island teams, the big 3 are on an Island by themselves, and it's close to the Island if Misfit toys..
1 South Shore Select2 Boston Breakers3 Penn Fusion4 BRYCI said before this weekend that Spirit was going to be a 3 way race with Boston, South Shore, and Penn Fusion. Indeed it was. Those 3 teams I believe would split outcomes every time they meet. Today was South Shores day.

You are right about Mr. Creepy.If he/she really thinks the Wildcats players are slow, unskilled,etc., then why is he/she pining for them to leave their team?Maybe he/she coaches a lower level team and really wants them to come onto his team?Maybe like you say from a team that has never beaten Wildcats or PL?Or just a disgruntled former parent with an axe to gring.

Can Mr/Mrs Creepy please post current team you coach or are a prent from so we can all be sure NEVER to try out for that miserable, nasty group.
My daughters team has played both PL and Wildcats more than once and having watched their parents and coaches during games and conversing with many of them they seem much more well mannered then Creepy.I think whichever of those 2 teams he left they are much better off without him on their sidelines.
We could only wish 8:07, that he would post the team he is associated with. The poor parents must be glad its only for one year.
Keep deflecting Wildcats. It's your only line of defense. To admit that there is zero development and a coach that really is out of his league coaching wise might actually mean that you have to admit it. So instead label posts creepy for reaction but at the end of the day everyone else is training and developing properly and effectively and the wildcats ...well, they are holding onto a bunch of athletic girls busting there asses to win games without any real development. Feel bad for the girls and the patents that by into the BS.
Why do you feel bad? It's not your kid's team or is it?
But you just said Wildcats players were slow and unskilled.Now you say they are athletic and should come to yiour team for your great development.Which is it?
He feels bad because Mr Creepy is full of hate and bitterness.I'm sure we will all line up to come to your Creepy Team.Pulease!
Enough with the wildcat infromercial. So much attention to a b/c level team.One day parents will wake up and realize that PDA is the place to be. Stay where you are and it's no one's fault but your own when players are passing your daughter by.Peace out!!!!!!
Ah, so you do want their players after all!
Here's an idea PL parent. Take a deep breath, leave you computer, have a beer. Just stop commenting on this subject. The person is curled up in the corner by now rocking in deep regret.
The only PDA team in F1 at Spirit, Ajax, didn't win a game in 3 outings.
That's a good idea 9:32. See yaPL Parent
So PF is now a top ECNL team?They had the same result as they did last year at Spirit. No better with the new players. Had a weak bracket in 14' and 15' , win both games and lose to a good team in the semis, SAME results no better.PL improves at Spirit this year. Instead of two ties and only one win( a 5-1 beat down of PF) they win two games and only lose one by one goal to the Breakers. PF loses to the breakers by one goal and cannot score against them!
Players and teams take on the characteristics and behavioral style of their leaders and coaches. The Wildcats are old and tired with an inability to play any other note than a Bflat. They are great front running bullies as the score line indicated in their first game at Spirit. But when you look deeper, their opponent in that game was weak and easily beaten by others too. The coach is very good at bullying weak and gullible players and parents too. When they were presented with a chance to solve a tougher problem opponent or two, they failed as the tougher and smarter opponent laughs off such bullies.And this will only get worse as the team is short on players, short on talent. There are no players capable of helping this team that are also looking to move to this team. None. The reputation of this team and their on and off field style is no so pervasive that no one, even desperado players and parents are not coming. Just a few wannabees, never weres and never will bes. Absent talent to blows smoke at, this coach and his one note style is kaput. True dat.
Yea, watched PennFusion play Averbuch and nothing impressive by PennFusion. Averbuch wore down bad in second half due to only having like 2 or 3 subs.On the other side Boston Breakers looked like a different team than last year. Big physical and fast. But also fouled like it was a hockey game.
9:14- The PDA Red Herring... very clever Wildcats.... very clever.
9:54 and 10:00. Let me guess, PL parents? You looked better this year? Which game? The dominating 1-0 win against HARFORD???? Or was it the dominating 2-1 win against NJ???? Count yourself lucky Boston played you after they had to sit around for 7 hours or your loss would've been worse.
Oh so now we are making excuses for the Wildcats 5-0 loss because they have only 3 subs? LOL
It appears Penn Legacy and wildcats are birds of a father!next subject please
Which game did your guys dominate at Spirit 10:59? What was that? Did you say 3rd flight of your team last tournament? Oh crap, you didn't win that either. Well, there always those local tournaments that your team does so well in.
Yikes. Alcohol and blogging don't mix.
Funny posts today. Agreed all felt this was between 3 to 4 teams. Personally, I had Breakers winning it all. I underestimated South Shore and overrated PL. Can't tell if their is a bipolar PF parent or two separate people. If two, kudos to the nice one.
I think you meant bipolar PL parent. I was wondering the same thing actually.

Very amusing stuff. Can't wait to see how this blog blows up during FC Stars. What will the hot topics be? Who will replace the wildcats??
That is interesting as I did observe the NJCSA Elite Mother assistant coach sitting on sideline watching part of each of Wildcats games very intently.She has a long rep of working the phones as well as the blog trawling for guests and recruits as does the new girls DOC at NJCSA(ex NJ Force coach in this age group that folded 2 decent teams last year).That is some combo to be throwing stones at others.
Honestly can we stop with the NJ Days of our lives -it's boring and old.
Somethings fishy. Wildcat coach bio on Wildcat site says he was All State high school football and soccer player in the late 1970s. How could you be both when both sports were played in the fall. Then it goes on to say he was the keeper for the WAC champion Univ. of Nevada and the WAC Tournament All Tournament keeper. There are many sites that have data from mens soccer, the WAC and Univ. of Nevada...Interestingly, the coach's name shows up nowhere.The WAC history page states that U of Nevada-Vegas entered the WAC in 1996 and the U of Nevada-Reno entered the WAC in 2000. Let's not jump to any conclusions but this is the bio he presents on the Wildcat web page.
Why would any team go to a summer tournament with only 13 players? Thst is dangerous and irresponsible by club, coach and parents.
Three different ways you can do both:1. You played both sports in different years.2. You played both sports concurrently, most common if you are a kicker.3. Soccer was not played in the fall. This is true in some states.
And sugar plum fairies really exist;)Your comments sound straight out of the movie "Elf"."You're not Santa. I know Santa."The WAC apparently did not exist in 1977. Your 3 points are possible but highly improbable.Expect that the bio will be "updated" soon.
GS is finally doing something correct. Will be deducting points for every win at Second Tier Academy tournament next weekend.

Yes, 8:52 you are correct.As anyone who has lived in the southern or southwestern states would know, in those warmer climates high school soccer is often played in the seasons other than fall.In las Vegas in the 70's at least, boys hs soccer was played in the winter(it's the desert after all), and many athletes there played both football and soccer in hs.As to the college reference, in the late 70's most colleges outside of the northeast and California that fielded mens soccer teams played at what was called the club level, and were not yet accredited as part of the NCAA and did not offer scholarships.The initial WAC tournament hosted by BYU in 1977 had then member WAC schools like BYU, Colorado State and Univ of Wyoming, as well as at that time non WAC Conference schools like Univ of Nevada(then called the University of Nevada-Reno).there were a total of 8 Colleges particpating with nevada defeating BYU 2-1 in the final which was held at BYU's football practice field on campus in Provo utah and had almost 2000 in attendence(mostly of course rooting for the home BYU Cougars team)As I still have the newspaper articles on the initial WAC Tournament I will try and scan and post them.It seems silly but when you have your character and integrity unfairly and falsely attacked it is tough to let that stand.I consider the source and his history, but still will not respond in kind with similar personal attacks(although there is plenty to discuss if I chose to go below the belt as he has), but will defend my own integrity when necessary and it is warranted here.It is always dangerous to engage in character assasignation without having all the facts and those who jump to conclusions without doing their research often end up with egg on their face.An apology is in orer but again considering the source, probably too much to expect.
Also to further refute 9:10 the WAC DID exist in 1977 and well before that as well.In fact both Univ of Arizona and Arizona State both played in the WAC then before joining the Pac 10(it was the PAC 8 before they joined).Also Univ of Hawaii was in the WAC in 1977 as well as Univ of Utah although they did not field mens soccer teams at that point..You need to do your research before making false statemnts.
Oh my god, that is HYSTERICAL!!!!!!
See what i mean, too much to expect of one so dishonorable.
Let me get this straight, I'm not sure if I'm following all this but from what I am getting is that Wildcats did not have the best weekend and are holding a low roster count. So the reaction is for the coach to go to this meaningless blog and literally give HIS history and wanting to scan and post articles about himself instead of being concerned and focusing his attention on his players and what HE can do for THEM? Is it me, or does he seen very egotistical??
No I think you have unfairly inpugned someone's character falsely and your false charges are bieng refuted.You shouldn't expect those types of attacks to be aired without a response. YOU have now made it a personal issue, not the coach.
You should pay no attention to the NJCSA guy.He does the same thing daily on the u15 girls blog.A scorched earth policy is his mode of operation everywhere he goes and everywhere he has been.It will all blow up again within a year just like it did at NJ Force and previous stops.He never learns ond only knows how to spread negativity and attack others personally, coaches, players and parents as he is doing to your team now.It is all about him wanting your teams players.I don't think you have anything to worry about in that regard as his rep is well known.
This is all too confusing, can we please discuss something else?
Seems to me you are doing exactly what you claim is a sick attack.
a few notes, and I'm not the commenter, the coach, or anyone who really cares.1. Why is this person so obsessed with the wildcats coach, who he clearly dislikes, that he's purposefully going to the NJ Wildcats website and searching for his bio? That's unhealthy. Truly. 2. It took me all of 10 seconds on google to find that the WAC was first established in 1962. Really. I googled "western athletic conference". Imagine my surprise that it resulted in a collection of facts about the history. 3. I agree with the coach. The character assassination is very dangerous. There's no value and while you're anonymous, you should be ashamed. It's childish. I hope someone hacks the YST blog and exposes the IP address for every comment ever made. I'd like to know who some of you are so I know who I DON'T want my daughter to be friends with.4. Coach, ordinarily I'd say you should stay off the blog, and I'd also say you shouldn't respond to the hate, but I respect the manner in which you laid out the facts. Now if you'd just stop walking around smoking the disgusting cigars and trying to (anonymously) hype up your team, it'd be great. 5. The Wildcats are among the least technical and skilled team at the F1 level. That's just my opinion and I share it so nobody claims I'm in close with the team. My daughter plays elsewhere, on a team that can't compete with the Wildcats, admittedly. But as an individual player I'm pleased with her ability and I'm not worried about the results of the team so much as I am about her development. She's never been overmatched individually in any game.
That was a really good post 1:37. Almost of "Soccer Nut" quality. Our team is done playing until school ball is over, good luck to all attending the Stars tourney and may your daughters have a healthy and successful fall season.PL parent
The attacker is not anonymous anymore.This type of McCarthyism is his regular MO.Throw out terrible accusations with no effort to make sure they are accurate and then hide when they are refuted(notice he is nowhere to be found denying responsibility).Classless as always and so low the dogs won't bite him.What a way to try and build a team and attract players.
There has yet to be any verification of any of these accomplishments or affiliations of this coach's background. That would end the dialogue. Absent evidence, it speaks to fraudulent misrepresentation if this background and experience is not true. Then you have to ask what else is a gimmick and why is such a tactic necessary.
One coach defends his integrity by challenging the integrity of other coach. Speaks volumes about ALL involved. You reap what you sow.

Thank you, 3:24. Nobody asked, but thanks. It's almost like you have a Match Fit - themed tourette syndrome. Just keep shouting out MF information, interjecting into conversations that are completely unrelated.
And if the proof is forthcoming will there than be an apology for falsely besmirching the coach's reputation and integrity?

How in the world is NJCSA guy still allowed to participate in youth soccer? Simply a bad guy.
I could give a rats ass what some coach did 40 frickin years ago.Who cares about the wildcat coach or the njcsa guy.For gods sake, get off the blog coaches and call a practice with your respective teams and do something positive and productive with them instead of pouring all your energy and attention into what others on this blog think of you.It's a black hole and you are falling into it way too deep. Let it go and carry on with something that will actually benefit your girls.Come on already with the juvenile back and forth. Enough is enough!!!!!!!!
It is LAWCHICAGO (Aug. 24, 2015) – In another step towards its commitment to long-term player development, U.S. Soccer is phasing in new standards related to small-sided games and birth-year registration.Aligning birth-year registration calendars with the start of the calendar year and run from January to DecemberBIRTH-YEAR REGISTRATIONBirth-year registration calendars will now align with the start of the calendar year and run from January to December, rather than August to July as it had previously. For example, a U-15 player (players 15 years old or younger) would have a birth year of 2000 (Jan. 1 through Dec. 31) for the 2015 registration year. In 2016, U-15 players would be born in 2001 or earlier. Birth-year registration applies to all player age groups and not just players age 12 and younger.The initiative will align registration with the international standard, while simultaneously providing clearer information on player birth dates to combat ‘relative age effect’.Relative age effect refers to the selection bias related to players that are more physically mature than their peers due to being born earlier in the year. U.S. Soccer seeks a balance of players that are born throughout the year so that all players, those born in the earlier months, and those born later have equal opportunity to grow and develop as soccer players.“I think the birth registration changes make everything easier,” Ramos said. “Over the years you go through coaching youth and people are confused about what age group they’re in, if they’re supposed to be u-15 versus U-14, because they’re born in such-and-such year, but they’re born in June. This new calendar makes things easier for everyone. If you’re born in a certain year you belong in that certain age group. It also gets us on the same calendar with the rest of the world, so now it becomes easier to identify for U.S. National Teams and everything else when it comes to international soccer.”The birth-year registration initiative will not cause the dissolution of age-group based teams that already play together, but will rather give players the opportunity to ‘play up’ with older age-groups.Birth Year Registration applies to all age groups of players and not just players 12 and younger. Not only will this change align players with the international standard, but it will allow organizers to be better informed to combat relative age effect when making teams for youth players.Relative age effect refers to the selection bias towards players born earlier in the year. For example, players who are born on January 1 are 364 days older than someone born on December 31 of the same year. This gap may result in the player born in January being more physically mature (taller, faster, stronger, etc.) than the player born in December, especially at the younger ages. Studies from a variety of sports, including soccer, show that physically mature players are often selected ahead of their more talented but less physically developed peers at the key developmental years (ages 12-15). Given the variance of growth rates, it’s important that skilled players don’t fall by the wayside just because someone is bigger or faster. This approach may be new for clubs and coaches when it comes to making teams but registering players according to birth year will help everyone understand the potential for bias. U.S. Soccer recommends that a player’s individual skills be prioritized ahead of their physical maturation and this is especially true for ages before and during puberty. Given some of the challenges associated with change, U.S. Soccer wanted there to be as much advance notice as possible to plan and implement these initiatives. We recommend that members spend the next year planning to adopt these changes as a best practice beginning in August of 2016. This will help everyone be better prepared for August of 2017 when the changes are mandated across membership.
I took all the main points to save you guys sometime like I do with all my GS BS. You can also go the the US Soccer website itself.GS 4 life
So if I understand this. If 2016 was year one.January 1st,20162001 players are u15 2002 players are u14Spring will be the start of the season with summer play until HS season starts. Once HS season ends Post season/Showcase season starts in Nov/Dec.tryouts moved to Jan/FebThis would explain why PDA Storm is listed as u15 by GS
The will cause a shift. it will be positive for some. Some pain for others. Soccer Nut
I still don't understand how you can have two years to do this. They should just say this will take place in 2016 or 2017. What a mess 2016 will be if some clubs change and some don't. Maybe I am not understanding it.
"US Youth Soccer programs will change to Calendar Year beginning with the 2016-2017 season."Us club soccer will follow Suit- So I am sure the bulk of changes will take place at next try-out.You always have to follow the money on this. Those clubs that do not adopt for 2016 will be at a competitive age disadvantage next year against other clubs.that have adopted.The winning mentality of most clubs will lead them to follow sooner rather than laterAlso remember if a child is good enough they will just stay with the older team and play up. Nothing changes for the kids that the coaches want on their older team.Everything changes for those 2002's that are player 14-18 and on some teams they are player 14-27Soccer Nut
The greatest disruption will be in the 2002-2006 age groups. Less so in older and younger ages.
Right now teams are heavily weighted with kids in the younger grade. This will reverse with the change. What happens to the 8th graders on the team when 3/4 of the team goes to HS? Will clubs field teams by grade as well as age? This minority would also be impacted at U18 as the majority of their teammates will be in college.

Stars of Mass will be first big Region 1 tournament. Although I don't like the double Premiere brackets there are some good games in there. Premier Blue A (closer results than expected)2/1- PDA Storm- think they will struggle as they integrate new players. Should be able to advance with some 2-1 low scoring games 5/1- BB- good warm up at Spirit. 10/1- STA- a team that always plays hard and keeps game close. Will give Storm a scare 10/1- Stars of Mass West- Great opportunity to play 3 good teams. Premier Blue B (Host hand picked bracket)1/2- Star of Mass- they hand picked this bracket to potential warm up vs Storm 15/1- Albertson- possibly the worst ECNL team in region 50/1- Ramapo and MF NPL- both teams need to hope that other teams go to the wrong complex to get forfeit points Final- Stars of Mass in PK's Premiere White (NEFC vs EM a great game)2/1- NEFC. Playing great, adding good players. I have to say best in region until beaten 5/1- EM- VERY PHYSICAL- can be dangerous if you stop playing soccer and get caught up in the dirty tactics. Have a game changer that needs to be accounted for at all times. 20/1 World Class- Will get a quick look at what their year will be like 1000/1- SJEB. Don't know how this team got out in this group. Had a good Spirit weekend. Will be a good opportunity for them to visit historic sites in Boston. I am actually rooting for this very, very, very dark horse. Premiere White B (most balanced bracket)3/1- SS- played well in Spirit 4/1- MF ECNL- have good athletes, team chemistry will be the issue 8/1 FSA- Gets 3 good games to start season12/1 NYSC- parents will complain about losing to ugly soccerFinal. NEFC vs SS. Great matchup. Clearly #1 and 2 NPL teams
10:30, haha, I will give you that, that was funny, but it's tragically correct, if we do lose games, it will be to less-skilled teams, SS, FSA and MF, it's just the cross we carry, it's not easy being us. BTW: USSF likes the way the club trains, and that is good enough for me.
11:06- Appreciate your sense of humor. Good luck!
Thanks 10:30 just one correction - SSS is not NPL they are a National League team (USYSA). You can almost say best USYSA team vs US Club soccer team both from MA. I always wonder why the PF & PL of the world don't come up north or at least to PDA to get a taste of some of these NY/NJ/CT/MA teams.
How come NYSC is not an ECNL team. Seem to have all the characteristics.
I posted last week that SJEB, Ramapo and MF NPL wouldn't score a goal and be completely outplayed. I take part of it back after seeing the bracket that Ramapo and MF NPL are in. There isnt a team worthy of a top bracket in there. While I don't believe they will win the bracket they could be somewhat competitive. SJEB, however, is in a tough bracket and they could get blanked.
NYSC is an ECNL, actually we invented the league, we also have the same amount of letters.
Match Fit has more skill than NYSCIf you want to say they are not as soft as your girls, OK, I will buy that
Oh yeah, but my wife is hotter than yours, beat that.
I think you got it mixed up, the sign readsMATCH FIT SKILLS SOCCER its actuallyMATCH FIT KILLS SOCCER
You are right on the mark 10:40 and you have no idea how much PL parents have bemoaned that same point to the club president. Unfortunately, club president said he would not increase the amount of games that are being played, only the amount of practice. Parents here would much rather plays teams the caliber of SS, BB, PF, PDA Storm and teams mentioned in your post. Our girls have lost by one goal to SS, FCV an BB and its did stink to lose, but our girls got to see some great technical soccer and go up against it. Its our girls loss not to be able to do it more.
great technical soccer, hahahahaha, I think you should just say GTS, so the interpretation can be vague.
12:40 PF will play many of those teams (Storm, EM, Stars, BB, MF, ect) in the coming months in ECNL league play.
Mf ecnl will have zero chemistry. Coach better hope,he plays the right girls, or he will be looking for a new job.
I was referring to FCV, BB and SS. Are you saying those teams are not technical enough in their style of play?
@2:49pm that's funny since one of the coaches is the DOC of the girls side -- old MF pre-ecnl coach is coaching NE NPL team
Season hasn't even begun and people already bashing mf ecnl coach. Its a damn shame!!
Anyone who's been keeping an eye on the whole MF NJX marriage know that maybe 3 top 4 girls from NJX should be on MF ECNL. The girls have a physical presence but not the technical ability. Should have kept Pre-ecnl together. Plus the loss of two players to storm, looks like it will be a tough start of the season.
Well if your daughter is good, why keep her there 2:13?
2:17's daughters team plays GTS in all tournament F3 and F4's that they play in. Sometime their GTS is so good, they can even keep possession. And there was this one time ..........
It's a fact that Match Fit is horribly run. They don't have a consistent philosophy, location or style. It varies team by team. The parts are not interchangeable. They embarrassed themselves last year amongst the league for their shady roster moves. They were "legal" but lacked all integrity. They have some very good players. They don't have the coaches or trainers to teach them more. I don't want to turn this into a mob scene on MF players and parents. My criticism is toward the Match Fit club decision makers, not current players and parents.
Match fraud $$$$$
12:40. Thanks for correction on SSS, didn't realize that. 1:01- I agree. That's a F3 type bracket. I think MF NPL and Ramapo teams will be able to load the box and keep scores low to appear like close games. Stars of Mass will spend the first 3 games in their opponents end only. Their defense will not be challenged.
3:38, what is your experience with MFA? Club isn't perfect, but IMO coaching staff is very good.
Coaching staff is good???? You never know,who is your coach
4:20, that was an amazing opinion, thank you!
Thank you Massachusetts Board of Tourism....P.S. She was wicked good, too.
You guys bash Match Fit on here all the time. Claim Match fit is not worthy The Club that is very Shady is PDA (have been for years) - Currently PDA is being investigated by ECNL for using an illegal player in National playoffs, not sure of other violation.PF Parent
PAE made their birth year announcement. Encouraging all clubs to switch over but will allow a one year transition. It is the same message coming out of TX, CA and GA.
MF did just shake up their ECNL coaching staff.
can any MF parents tell us if they've seen unfamiliar faces loitering around their practice fields? I'm curious because it seems that so many people are in the know on who the coach is/isn't, how the teams are integrating, etc... which leads me to believe 'outsiders' are attending MF training just to watch. Or MF has a disgruntled parent. I just don't understand all the hate towards this club. would love to hear from an MF parent how things are going...
That was a amazing opinion 4:20. Some of our team decided to stay and watch the final and it was a great game. Something we hope to see our girls strive for and become. Don't worry about the ones putting your post down on here. Its the same parents that you see at tournaments, leaving the parking lot on Sunday around 10:00 am.
5:55, not sure if you realize this, but you Are talking to yourself, again.
...says a parent who stayed after their consolation game ended?
Yeah, that’s it, that’s me. I stayed to watch them water the grass after the game, because was more interesting than the game you mention. P.S. The process is very underrated, makes for good TV.
Ur right 6:13. The process would be boring to someone who's team has never seen the finals of a tournament. Of course you are lucky in way, you do get to McDonald's before they change to their lunch menu. Just in time to load up on those pancakes. At least you and your family have something to look forward to every Sunday.
How disruptive to the current year will this new birth year announcement be?
Every team will be disrupted.A team composed of 50% 2001s and 50% 2002s will see their team split in two with each half of their team attending different tryouts next year.And even a team composed of 100% Aug-Dec 2001s will see a bunch of Jan-Jul 2001s show up at tryouts. The team will change. Boo-frickin'-hoo.A deep club with good teams in all age groups will have a huge advantage. They'll just shuffle good players from one team to another. But the small clubs that are not deep in each age group, the clubs that rob the U12s so that their U13 team is stronger, those teams will suffer as their youngest players are playing against players 18 months (or more) older than them.Will little Susie who has always enjoyed an advantage with her Sept birthday be good enough to make next year's 2001 team? Will she still start? Or will she *gasp* be put on the B team?!? This is where ODP becomes a useful tool. Did Susie make ODP? How did she compare to the other 2001s? She get any looks at regional camp?Unfortunately, Susie's dad told her that ODP was a money grab, so she never went. So now Susie will just have to wait until spring tryouts to know whre she stands.Good luck, Susie. You're great kid. But your dad is a douche.
What the weird????
The stronger town teams will be upset the most by this announcement.
