U13G / U13 Girls Youth Soccer

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

Where these players will end up is anyone guess.

Welcome to the ride.

10:40 Top clubs always move on to regional play as these programs continue to get stronger every year. Every league is going to have some lopsided results.

EDP will continue to have evenly played games with the teams that remain.

NJ State Cup wide open this year without PDA and NJX. Think every team has a chance to win this year.I for one think thats more exciting and interesting.

With the amount of tournaments the teams play, it costs money. If you are not paying 3K, you are paying 2.5K. Throwing the money thing out there just shows bitterness. The pre ECNL and NE NPL are deeper leagues. You have solid games EVERY week. The other leagues have talent but you will only get 2-3 solid games. Then the talent pool falls off the cliff. That leaves the majority of your games against inferior talent. You will have way more 4 plus goal differential wins. Not a good thing in my book. I would rather have my kid playing tough games ALL the time. That is why the college coaches live there. They want kids who have to grind it out every week. Again, not for everyone, but you cannot deny that this is the way it is.....

Everyone
FYI
I'll try to keep it short & simple.

Four components to the game of Soccer, Futbol, Football.
One could argue that they're all equally as important.

*Technical
*Tactical
*Physical
*Psychological

Speed is one part of the Physical component which includes several other elements like, Aerobic capacity, Aerobic power, flexibility, agility, Muscle endurance and more...

FOR ANYONE TO THINK THAT IF A PLAYER HAS SPEED THEY CAN AUTOMATICALLY PLAY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL IT IS COMPLETELY 100% IGNORANT. EVEN IF THEY HAVE SPEED + EXCELLENT TECHNIQUE, STILL MIGHT NOT BE ENOUGH.

For example at the pro level many incredibly gifted players (fast, Strong, talented) fail to make it because for some reason they're unable to perform when everyone is watching them (Psychological element missing). Therefore many average players who have no problem performing, in practice or in big games, at a good level(consistent Players) often have lots of success at the college or pro levels.

***MYTH***
"ALL PRO SOCCER PLAYERS ARE FAST"

if you don't believe me research it??? Plenty of big & slow center backs playing in top leagues around the world.

some others who have had GREAT careers without top speed. At every level of play, players can excel without being speed demons if they possess other qualities

Andrea Pirlo - one of the best mids of our time.

Xavi - quick as heck, but he's not gonna win many races over 20 yards

Carlos Pujol

Michael Essien

Francesco Totti

The battle to advance to the next level is among those who are trying to advance on all those 4 fronts. Not an easy task. Any one can be the player's Achilles heel.

The psychological game is perhaps the one least specifically addressed in my experience. Too bad as it is critical. I wish the coaches would discuss this area more. What techniques did they use as players to have a strong psychological game? Parents need some education around this too.

No - you simply do not

Ok all you speed freaks go check out the FIFA wold cup stats page and get back to us. Range is 20 kph to 33 kph. So how did all those slow guys compete?

I wouldn't consider Michael Bradley fast but he covered a ton of ground which is what was needed in that role.

Again, if you take out Continental and FC Bucks, it looks like a pretty competitive league. Bucks or Continental have been involved in 12 out of the 27 games played so far. That's why every other game looks like a blowout.

Remove those results and you're really just left with a couple clunkers by Albertson.

There are ten talented teams in the pre-ECNL, and then the talent cliff drops dramatically for the bottom two. It's a league with 9 out of the top 25 Region 1 GotSoccer teams in it (alas, no Match Fit Pre-ECNL). It's a really good league. But feel free to pick on it if you like.

I think most Knowledgeable parents know that speed is not the end all be all in the more advance level of the game

But you must remember , you have some kids that are fast and the parents have always known these kids as being the standout on their teams,

unfortunately most coaches exacerbate this by putting the big fast kid at CB or CF. These parents are also not in a program where technical skills are demanded on the field. I very rarely see a coach bench a kid at the u10 level for running over another kid instead of making the extra pass or talk to fast forward who is able to kick the ball forward in front of him and just out run the defender because he can.(- This kid would be better served in the middle where he has to use his feet passing skills and technical ability to "1st touch into space"

But coaches want to win Now, so they put the big fast kid up front or at CB where they can do the most damage early on in their career.

Unfortunately these kids are a victim of bad coaching, Ignorant parents and immediate gratification.

On every team there is a fast kid that was put out on the edges way too early and their game is one dimensional. Most are just beginning to have a hard time because they can't out run the opposition any more. They will become frustrated.
Some will find themselves on the bench. Some will leave the game.


Coaches are to blame here and parents as well


Anonymous said...

Speed is simply one of the easiest variables to identify at the younger ages. Parents most often equate speed with goal scoring ability. Elements like vision and toughness are much, much harder to quantify.

Speed can be nullified by :
Physical play and/or
Possession and/or
Tactics and Technique

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice variable to have, but ask yourself what percentage of the girls represented in this thread are going to play Pro, much less play at a D1 soccer program.

Teams that rely on speedy forwards to play dump and chase are essentially reaping short term benefits at the expense of long term development. And if, per chance, that speedy player is plucked by an ECNL team, what does the remaining team do now that their source of goals is gone? What else will have been developed? All that money essentially has gone to the development of one kid.

Over the long haul, these games mean nothing. But, as mentioned before, playing as many quality games as you can against better competition does bring out the variables that future coaches will be looking for.

Relying on speed alone is about as reliable as relying on GotSoccer points to determine if another team is better or worse.

Context, people, context.

Original poster of the speed question here. Thanks for the input, it made me really think. Soccer nut you made alot of good points (as did the other poster). I think I'm now leaning towards agility training/quickness training. This might increase 'explosive speed'. My daughter plays center forward/center mid and doesn't have the lateral speed to be on the wings. I'm glad I could turn to the blog and get some constructive advice.

Anonymous said...

Some really good points here.

For those of you that have a really fast player at the younger ages, find a place where the coach is not going to put your daughter at forward or CB.

Let her play center mid at the early ages.

if he tells you that he wants her up top because she is a scorer or she would be tough on defense. Find another program, Play her up.- so she is not the biggest fastest kid on the field, and then work on nothing but feet and touch , passing and movement.






Anonymous said...

Think we all agree you need all to stand out at next level. All of these kids on top teams will keep fine tuning their technical skill and most will get better. The ones that also possess the speed will move on. Tough for one of these girls to work on get faster.

I have noticed at quite a few of my daughters games players are flat footed and don't anticipate anything. Only time they make a run is after the pass has been made. It they had anticipated the pass/play they would have a couple yard head start on the defender but they wait too long and now its a 50/50 ball. Game smarts and intelligence puts u in the right spots so you don't have to outrun your opponent all the time.

Anonymous said...

1:04- Thats a great point.

Girls who were bigger and faster dominated on smaller fields and younger age groups. As the girls start to mature and physical dominance is diminished they will need to be more technical to create their space.

Of course it is an advantage to be very fast but I would rather have a player with a higher soccer IQ. If you have both, anything is possible.

Anonymous said...

September 30, 2014 at 1:04 PM ... your points are well taken and I agree with them with a couple modifications ...

Being flat-footed is a condition which could contribute to the player being slower or having achilles or plantar fascia problems. But I think you mean that they are standing and waiting instead of anticipating and trying to make things happen. Agreed.

As far as anticipating a pass - I will go a step further. Its the actual run from the player that makes the pass - it gives the player with the ball the idea in the first place. This proactice play is sorely missing and it comes from a place that has absolutely nothing to do with athletic ability - it comes from the mind of the soccer player and desire and willingness to play the game off the ball.

Far too often we see the forward just glancing back over her shoulder waiting for a ball to be delivered that she can run onto. It is working far less for them now when speed has caught up and defenders are more savvy at the higher levels. These players need to be taught to make lateral and diaganol runs, to hold up the ball instead of thinking everything is immediate and vertical. This also all comes from coaching and the brain and has nothing to do with physical ability. Execution is another matter, but you'll never get there is you can't evolve the players brains.

Far too often overlooked - the eyes and the brains. Not many of us realize the importance of all of this and instead thinks its all skills, speed and physical things. This aspect of the game is severely undercoached and one reason, among many others, why we lag behind in men's soccer and a reason if we don't change things, we will not lead in the women's game for too much longer.

This was a nice conversation about the merits of speed

It all started with a simple question and then followed by respectful discourse.

I believe that this blog was created for these types of discussions.


I have 3 children playing Soccer, one at the college level. One at this age group and one just beginning her career, I have been around a bit and have been both delighted and bitterly disappointed at some of the top programs in the country and in some of the so called professional clubs in the Area. ... No truer phrase applies to youth then "Buyer BeWare"......No matter the pedigree of the club.


Hope to engage in another discussion soon

September 30, 2014 at 1:04 PM - nice post. I agree with one comment ... It shouldn't just be a matter of anticipating a pass, but that is a place to start, meaning they see a player on their team coming out of a challenge and start getting wider and moving up-field as it is happening. I would call this reading the game and reacting accordingly. However, add to that the ability to make the run off the ball that actaully is the impetus for the pass being made - the run gives the ball holder the idea and opportunity to pass the ball. This is creativity off the ball. Movement makes so much happen in soccer. Even if that player did not get the pass, while I can be frustrating, it can move defenders out of their previous spot making that newly vacated area something to attack via dribble or pass. When they start doing this, then they have started really playing the game.

But when you see kids at U13 looking over their shoulder waiting for the ball to be passed in front of them, you know how far away from this our COACHES are in conveying good soccer to the girls. I blame this on the coaches and the system. Because a coach that sees a player standing and waiting like this waiting for a pass that will basically amount to a no-talent foot race that most will lose at higher levels, all the coach needs to do is pull that girl off the field, tell her what he expects instead and put her back in later. Replace her for the meantime with someone that can being to get this creative requirement. Naturally, the girl will figure out the equation and know that if she wants to stay on the field, she will need to adapt. Meanwhile, you reward the girls that are taking to the teachings.

Ah ... but back to square one - the teachings need to be there.

It sure isn't coming from high school coaches. And far too little of it from our so-called higher-level travel and academy soccer coaches and paid trainers.

I'm missing your point, 2:35.

Is it your assertion that a league comprising:

East Meadow SC 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
Match Fit Academy 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
Penn Fusion SA 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
Boston Breakers Academy 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
Albertson SC 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
PDA 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
FC Stars of Mass 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
World Class FC 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
Connecticut FC 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
FSA FC 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
FC Bucks 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
Continental FC 01 U13 Pre-ECNL

is the same as a league comprising:

NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH
CES CALVERT CREW WHITE
NJSCA GALAXY
PIPELINE SC BLACK
HARFORD FC UNITED THUNDER
STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01
LEHIGH VALLEY UNITED LVU 01 GIRLS
JERSEY PREMIER SOCCER FLASH
MATCH FIT ACADEMY FC BLACK

Is that what you're arguing?

Granted, swapping out Continental and FC Bucks for Wildcats and Calvert would make for a better league.

Soccer nut,

Your comments exhibit you have an understanding of the game that is higher than a lot of bloggers out here. Keep it coming - and throw some macadamias into the mix here and there.

It's all better than trashing teams, comparing teams (for goodness sake .. U13 girls), the occasional blah, blah, blah you see and certainly better than those that express ideas like "if you think so much is wrong with American soccer, then how do you explain the WNT success" and any other comment that shows the blogger is not interested in looking any deeper than speed, strength and U13 dominance.

Penn Fusion NPL has been better than advertised, with a tie against MF NPL and one goal losses against the two PDAs. Still waiting for that signature win against a "good team" though.

Penn Fusion pre-ECNL has two good one-goal wins over MF and EM. And a bad loss to Albertson (after going up 2-0, gave up three goals in final 20 minutes...similar to their meltdown against Penn Legacy: gave up four goals in final 30 minutes).

You can give these teams any label you like: average, worst of the best, best of the worst. Tough to tell after seven games.

I also see the below result against a strong PAGS team?

8/2/2014 FC REVOLUTION FORCE (PAE) 0-1

MF NPL
PDA South
PDA North
PennFusion

and Maybe FSA.

Let's leave FSA out of this compare. Forget about Pre-ECNL flight because that flight is sick. The FC Bucks of the world will get better as well - playing 22 games against these types of teams will make a team better as they start to adjust to the speed of play.

EDP Central has
NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH
CES CALVERT CREW WHITE
STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01

The others might be in the same boat as the Northeast NPL Teams not in the top 5 and not in the bottom 3.

Of course rescheduling needs to happen when there are state cup games, tournaments, champion league games and regular league games to juggle
to say the Cats are skirting playing a team is a reach
Seeing as NJSA is a local team also, it will be much easier to fit in anytime

Calvert played 4 games so they didn't have to travel every weekend

Multiple trips out of state is another reason to reschedule to play more than one team per weekend

Between state cup, league games and tournaments there has to be some flexibility as these teams will often have multiple events scheduling games on the same day.

Now let's get back to talking about soccer related things.

I'd be extremely happy if we broke this blog into 2: 1) those who want to talk about the games and results and schedules and relative strengths of teams and 2) those that want to talk about the soccer experience, good and bad, development, coaching, styles of play, ideas for development etc.

I suppose both are equally valid discussions, but I am very interested in one and not the other. Not to take anything away from the other.

One topic concentrates on the measurements of talent/systems with scores, standings leagues, match-ups and rankings, while the other topic deals with how to make a better soccer player and the pros and cons in the development process.

Are there people out here who like to read and blog about both - I gather some.

Maybe if the site admin is reading this, he/she can consider such a proposal.

Instead of rescheduling that game Wildcats and STA work out at screw NJSA deal to play Sunday.

Wildcats now want to schedule midweek at their convenience.

Wildcats have yet to play a league game but are able to dictate other clubs schedule.

EDP allows legitimate game schedule changes.

STA could not come down the shore on ANY of the open dates on our schedule.

I heard that things are not so great at NJSA and that players are looking to leave and that other clubs have already been contacted

Not surprised, judging by their spoiling for a fight over minor scheduling issues before they even start their first year at this level.

So STA can't move their schedule why should a game already scheduled be moved? And how do you know what anyones else's schedule is? If you played a game maybe your schedule wouldn't be so fluid/cramped.

I will move on to #1 - Pre-ECNL projected flight value is 10,000

I feel it is only proper for a league to award standings based points for fall alone if all teams played the same number of games

Hopefully this will have been the case

I think calvert Crew is also in EDL.
Wouldn't that raise flight value for winner?

@118, THANK YOU for saving this blog from further nonsense today, it was getting real boring. Good stuff.

Forget about the EDP, what are the flight values of the WAGS Cup flight?

3:29, that was such a juvenile response that it caught me off-guard, haha. Enjoy the beautiful turf farms, and the apples orchards, and if you get a chance, buy some of that wacky chewy candy they sell at the consessions stand, its real yummy, since it might be most fun your kid will have all weekend.

Ciao!

Wildcat coach laying low? Rehabbing reputation? What?? Check out 12:30 AM. Original Sunday game must have conflicted with NFL viewing schedule.

Anonymous said...

Njsa seems to be doing well. Those are very good players mixed in there. They are winning. But coach is red card coach. Demands a lot. I believe his u14 team is hurting and losing. I think u13 is ok but previous poster may know more.

To be fair, I don't think the crazy wildcat coach is with the team anymore.

Wildcats would rather forfeit NJSA game rather than playing them on 10/5
WOW
That's a lot respect!!!

If they follow their new trend cats would probably not show up WAGGS in fear of getting beaten
LOL

don't think the girls are afraid of playing ANY team in this age group. Already proven that they can play with and beat the best. If there is a scheduling issue, it is not because the team is afraid.

Obviously not talking about the girls.
DOC & Coach seem to be a little too worried.

You think Wildcats would prefer to play STA than your nice little club?

That's pretty funny.

Anonymous said...

Which NJSA team is supposed to play Wildcats? Don't they have 2 in U13? Is it the Manalapan/East Brunswick merged team?

Anonymous said...

I'm going to take a very lucky guess that there are some former Wildcat players on this NJSA team or vice versa hence all the negative back & forth. Always seems to be the case.

Anonymous said...

Schedule issue? Is that because of multiple sports? Not enough players or to many Key players being missed?

If so what then, the one sport kids that picked a sport suffer because others want to play multiple sports and can't be in two places at once?

or does the coach have multiple teams and different locations?

How about your last game about a month ago

Unless you're considering Randolph a game LOL

Can you name the team?
Used to have speed
Used to have size.
Never had skill?

Of course that with this said plus your brilliant soccer mind you might conclude you can beat NJSA 5-0

simply amazing you see everything so clearly :) :) :)

Anonymous said...

For a new team, this NJSA group really thinks they are something else.

Think they should hold off on all the attacks until they have at least finished the fall season.

Looks like they have seen some easier games minus Calvert.

They are also riding on the old team's points and from the looks of it have entered lower level tournaments for points.

Will see in the next couple of weeks if they can walk the walk. Until then they should calm down a bit and quit antagonizing other clubs.

Anonymous said...

Uhmmmm... tough one... let me take a wild guess.. the Wildcats

lol!!!

Anonymous said...

Yes Wildcats lost a consolation game to Ajax 3-1

That is a two goal differential.

NJSA's goal differential was 7.

Wildcats also played Calvert to a 1-1 tie
NJSA lost 2-0

Wildcats played Penn Legacy to a 1-1 tie
Let's see how you do against them in the near future

New team, ALL TALK!!

The same people who we call "club jumpers" are the same ones that come on here and tear apart anyone that they have "jumped through"

Some of them have been on 3 teams in 1 1/2 years.

Face it, no matter where you go, you'll just be middle tier team.

Mighty Wildcats you're so great just play them on 10/5 and beat them up and they'll stop talking.

"Wildcats played Penn Legacy to a 1-1 tie"

Don't forget that Legacy scored late! It was a late goal! And we all know only that better teams score first! Wildcats should get a partial win because they were winning for most of the game!
