They are left out. Plenty long gone by this age. But there are thousands left with the $$$ and talent to fill the rosters so on it goes.
2:00 if it was that easy. our country is huge and covers many miles. Who can support paying for so many players that play this beautiful game? yeah it's easy to say pay to play league. The GDA will be offer free rides to it's top players. If a player is in need of tuition and they are a top player they will play for free. No player that is number 20 in the pyramid will play for free that much is a given, aren't scholarships given to player that can make a difference just like in college soccer, not because you need it. 2:37 so you are telling me a player that would be roster depth would get a scholarship? Scholarships are for the top players simple if they need it or not.
TC canceled for PA. Another reason why the GDA will be so much more efficient in evaluating players. TC's are once a month and haven't even been that lately. One cancellation after another. Pointless at least for the 02's who are out of it in a couple months.
2:59 - sure. I think they may get something if they are good enough to make the roster. Maybe help with uniforms, etc. I think clubs/teams like to be altruistic. AND, if that little engine that could develops further, then it's the icing on the cake.
3:23 That I would have a problem with as a paying customer. If my daughter has more skill but I have to pay because I make more money well my money doesn't grow on a tree either.The GDA teams should rank players on their roster and the list should be made public to the team players 1-10 Play for Free everyone else pays. The rankings should be done every 5 months since it is a 10 month season. Then everybody knows where they sit and no one has any gripes if they stay. If your kid is at the bottom suck it up or leave and let someone else try.
NYCFC DA will not be free, they told us already, @2K, something about a late start, and NYCFC not budgeting for it, right. Its more like they don’t want to pay Kaz, so the teams will suck-up the cost. IF THE BOYS ARE FREE, THE GIRLS SHOULD BE FREE.
Try cedar stars. That one has said it will be fee free.
4:28 - so you would begrudge a kid who isn't as blessed getting a shirt or shorts and a pair of socks? Harsh.
Cedar Stars, hmmm, what MLS team are they with? I think the coaching and training at NYCFC will be the best in the entire GDA, so if your daughter makes a team, I would quickly accept a spot. There are many advantages to their program, which I will not mention here, but needless to say, the college scouts will be lining-up.
That sounds like a truly dreadful set up. they could call themselves the fighting resentments.
Heard PDA South gets the 14th spot in ECNL to round out the league. That will be tough on Matchfit for sure
Next season, ECNL = second tier. Why do they want to?
5:12 PMI agree, If the boys DA is free and subsidized by US soccer the Girls DA should be the same. If not they should not start it. Apparently there must be a cost associated with boys DA due to the availability of a scholarship for a select group. it is based on need not ability:http://www.ussoccerda.com/scholarship-program
They are just opening themselves up for a lawsuit.
There is no 14th team in Northeast Conference of ECNL for '17-'18Cool your jets PDA
What law is being violated?
I'm not sure, I know there is something on books about equality.Let me guess, the men's team makes more money.I agree with that, but this level does not.Just saying, may be an issue....
910 I believe next draft will move McClean to the Northeast ECNL to make it 14 and keep the Region 1 logistics similar to ODP, NTC and other identification process. Unless PF decides in one year and re-instates themselves. There goes my question does anyone know since PF will not have ECNL/NPL what league will the 2nd tier players play at? National League, EDP, Etc.
8:40 I know it states that it is based on need not ability:You are now the DOC - which player do you take.You Roster is 24 and you have 10 scholarships.Players 1-10 are currently in NT campsA few players tried out for the team, they are need based, so the only way they play is if they get a scholarship. They are not top 10 and can be replaced by paying customers of equal ability - what do you do?
yes, cedar stars is soliciting for sure. See what happens, maybe not this year but summer and beyond will be interesting who takes the carrot for DA opp at Cedar Stars. PDA only team from NJ sending kids to NT. it has to do with Mike, head coach at Rutgers, Rutgers is top program. Remember it is always about who you know, what strings you can pull etc. PDA is flushed with cash and the best of the best. But you can find players like this at top brackets at Jeff Cup, CASL lets say at least top two brackets in any age group. They just choose not to move to pda.
12:40 PMPick the teaam based on ability and as part of the registration the player's parents apply based on the Scholarship requirments. If they are turned down they have the option to pay or decline the offer and you call #25 to see if they are still interested. A coach will not know at a tryout if a player can afford the fees. I also belive DA is more open ended so adding players at any time would not be an issue. Now if you are saying what would a coach do to build a team (not develop players) he/she would entice best players with scholarships and we are back at a failing system. The pyriamid to privlidge is starting to come into play everywhere. Who is not treated equal according to social dictates can claim exclusion based on orientation, color, social circumstances, US soccer is jumping on the bandwagon and will begin to seek out the athletes currently exempt because of availbale dollars or Urban locations. If the girls DA can diversify by offering scholarships to those players who are outside the fences they will over achieve to make it so.
Totally off the current GDA/ECNL topic. Did anyone watch the CSN special "Tomboy" Interesting opinions forced by the show. The leading interviewee was Billy Jean King, Lindsey Vonn contributed as well. No really big names after that. Basically stated that there is very little opportunity for girls to participate in sports. I saw it as very slanted and more of a victim complex than a treatise on how girls become empowered through participating in sports. I am not raising my daughter to be a victim and cry foul at every perceived equality issue. I feel like a girl watching this show and deciding to continue in sports would most likely come to the conclusion that it isn’t worth it. The show blames sports for bullying, body image issues, and isolation. They did not offer any path forward or perspective of where girls/women have truly succeeded. Maybe this was the hypothesis episode and they will have others to address all of the claims made??
What is Matchfit's big announcement they have been hinting at on Twitter for weeks? Are they getting back into the GDA game?
They are merging with cedar stars. Most people already know this.
Glad we left when we did. Not sure how merging with CS can help them, but I wish them luck
4:51, so how is life over at WCFC, are you enjoying the longer commute?
Not at WC. Try again
And what would be wrong if you were?
I'd be much happier than you
Any word on GDA tryouts tomorrow night in Orangreburg, are they really still on????
I contacted the firstname.lastname@example.org email address and was told they would be sending out an email today canceling them. You have to be registered to get their emails though. More snow likely tomorrow
McLean won't be moved to the Northeast ECNL to make it 14. The divisions are set up to match when the high school soccer season is. The mid-Atlantic division is comprised of states that play high school soccer in the Spring.
wow, MF going to Cedar stars. Wow. Who is next is all i can say?
1145 Wrong! The ECNL teams in Maryland(Bethesda & MD United) have HS season in the fall. So it will be interesting to see if those clubs tell them Club team is priority over HS.
1:46, how freaking stupid are you? Nothing you said contradicted what I wrote. McLean will be in the Mid-Atlantic division, which is comprised of teams in states with Spring HS soccer. Bethesda and Md United will be in the Northeast Division; despite their proximity to the Virginia teams, they are in a different conference because they play HS soccer in the Fall. http://www.eliteclubsnationalleague.com/2017/03/14/ecnl-announces-initial-2017-2018-girls-membership/I can only explain this to you; I can't comprehend it for you.
1:46 was the ex-MF guy, who is denying he went to WC, but he actually did, and who is also an expert in geography based on his own personal experiences. I think, therefore I spam....
2:51 I am the EX-Matchfit guy who is denying going to WC, because I did not go to WC. Sorry, you seem to have all your ex-parents confused. Must be too many to keep up with. And no, I did not comment about any other clubs. Enjoy your new Green Jerseys
Nobody cares where you wentBut if you want to keep talking we will judge your team for you.Approaching the 5K post break just in time.
Everybody wears green on St. Paty’s day, where you been, besides WC?
Admin please delete posts. Thanks

2:58 X-Match Fit is now a PDA Player.
Funny how everyone hates PDA, but everyone good always ends up there. And the ones that leave always regret it.
NYCFC DA tryouts postponed due to low turn out - not the snow. Follow the pattern people - PDA DA tryouts - postponed. NYCFC - postponed. Match Fit - exit. CSA - postponed. No interest at all.
Good luck to all the teams traveling this weekend, safe travels, and remember to play with pride and honor.
Wildcats have been silenced. Thank god.
Kitty Cats are a wreck and got wrecked! Guess the coach cant sit in his chair smoking cigars during the game that cocky d bag.
Cocky d bag is an understatement.
Another blow to wildcats. Rush and pipeline too. We won't hear from them anytime soon.
Rush and pipeline got a beat down!!

Not to defend Rush or Wildcats but they just played in front of 50 D1 coaches.
Lol 50 D1 coaches what game were you looking at? I hope that is full on sarcasm!
Funny, but not a good time to play like that, even if there were 15. I'm seeing about 6 to 10 a game. Saw the games and sloppy soccer. Kick and run is getting old.
You play an ECNL team like FC Virginia or PDA you will have 30-50 D1 coaches there.
Coaches are there to see players not teams. So the fact is some of the girls from those teams are being recruited by D1 teams.
