Id agree but will also add NEFC should be before FCV.
No Guest players used in STATE Cup Game game for either NJCSA OR WILDCATS.
BRYC seems to be getting way too much credit. WAGS was one weekend. They played very well but what else have they done outside that weekend? I don't think they deserve to be in the top 10 until we see them repeat that kind of play at Bethesda.
There is no way to create a criteria to decide any top 10 or 20 regional teams (ecnl or non). There would always be an argument regarding teams that don't play each other enough. How often does PL, PAC or LVU play NJ Rush or Galaxy or Crush? So all we have to go by is common opponent in tournament play where both ECNL teams and Non ECNL team run into each other at the F1 level. Or the rare league where teams like South Shore play non ecnl teams. To the poster that found living in Lancaster County is a strange place to live. I thought the same exact thing when I moved here from NY twenty five years ago. Sometimes listening to people talk in that Penn Dutch accent makes you want to shove nails in your ears. Other than that, its a great place to live. Don't forget to cheer the Mets on this week. PL Parent
PL was in my top 10 since they are the defending NCS PA champion. Show me a team that should be ranked higher and why based on results not what flight they were in or what place they came in straight up results.You guys gave me the same grief when I used the same logic for NJ Wildcats and defended them. I was a Wildcat parent back then now I guess I'm with Crush. GS 4 Life
PL at Bethesda, of course we're not playing. Our DOC feels playing rec teams on frozen corn fields is better for our teams development. Boy I'm going to miss him next year!
Wasnt it at Bethesda last year that BRYC really arrived?Now they need to do it again as proof?
3:37 sounds like a very unhappy team in their last year. PAC bound?
Happy or unhappy doesn't matter. The club will split this team up by age next year. There's not enough talent in either the 00's or '02's. On our worst day they can beat the 00's and we already have the best 02 playing with us. sorry there's no way to combine teams, continue to play F1 at majors(when allowed), and get top college exposure. It's tough enough for non ecnl teams. PAC is a possibility but it's not at the top of my daughters list.
Can't your 02's just play up in order to keep team together? Many teams planning of doing just that. Then again if the club doesn't have its players best interests why bother staying there.
It does seem that the DOC at PL has forced many loyal parents to make a difficult decision. When parents offer to pay extra for their daughter's to play in a tourney (Bethesda) and the DOC won't even consider it, citing safety through less games. Then makes them play in a tourney that is "B" team level with the exception of maybe one team. It makes for many unhappy parents. If your going to spend a cold weekend outdoors watching soccer, at least make it worth being there.
If from the south central PA area, it's not exactly news that PL as a club isn't where you take your kid (or at least keep them there beyond U12) if they are talented. That club has maybe 2 decent coaches and are certainly not known for their teams successes.
What 4:25 has stated, is the position of almost all the parents that are serious about their daughter's next step. Some feel that the team is surviving at the higher level, simply because the team is more athletic than most of the teams they face, and can often limit other teams offensively because of it. Our girls are certainly not devoid of skill, but if the club truly cared, they would be doing so much more to push this group to a higher level. But instead, the club has no concern about this team staying together, after all, fifty more will show up at the next tryout. PL Parent
1:36... I heard her say her daughter should NEVER come off the field for these other little kids...(something like that)
4:32Seems like a simple solution but if club did that for our team they'd have to do it for all the teams or it wouldn't be "fair". Same reason we have to play fall classic and can't play Bethesda, wouldn't be fair to the other teams. Welcome to our socialist soccer club. Everyone plays, everyone starts, everyone gets equal time(though not in each game), everyone pays the same so everyone( players and teams) is are treated the same, equal . Sort of the anti PDA. Positives and negatives with that philosophy but as with all socialistic ideas tend to benefit the weaker players, and this isn't life it's sports.
DOC to be ousted out of NJ academy
To keep it real, the PL U14 team isn't really indicative of PL as a club on the whole. It is more of a regional "all-star" team with its roots in clubs other than PL and the girls coming from a number of surrounding counties. As has happened in the past, I can see the core talent pool moving on as a group if necessary. As far as their accents go, much easier on the ear than North Jersey or New York.
The roots of PL 01 were squarely in Hempfield school district where the club is located. I believe 8 of the original 12 who won the state cup at u-9 were Hempfield girls with the remaining 4 from bordering school districts. But winning attracts top players which enables teams to keep winning. Now I believe we have at least 10 school districts represented with girls coming from nearly an hour away, only 3 from Hempfield if I'm counting right. But it wasn't formed as an allstar team nor did any "group" of players come in at any time. It sort of morphed into that but I doubt that's all that uncommon at most clubs.
@6:04 - Granted, but the Strikers and United, and their associated connections and affiliations, do have a significant influence on current PL makeup.
While PL does have its warts, it also has it positive aspects also. I'm sure there will be some change on the horizon for NJ and NY teams as well. How will the Wildcats, Galaxy and teams similar to the NJ Rush and Boca handle the change? Has there ever been a more important year to keep contacts open? Question for someone in the know. How will this affect the 98's and 99's, if at all?PL Parent
True, and maybe my memory is alittle fuzzy, but I think there were as many girls who played for PL before playing for strikers/United than girls who played there first and then came to PL. of coarse alot of those connections go back to the city islanders summer teams. Man that seems like a long time ago!
To funny 6:43. I just figured out who you are.
Yea, amazing what that scrawny bunch of 9 yr olds have turned in to
Walk down PL memory lane tonight. Warms the heart.
The current 98 ECNL teams will stay intact for next year as the ECNL combined the oldest 2 birth years for a single team. Where the fly happens is that this age group will now include the August through December juniors in addition to all except the couple of August 98 senior who will graduate. That will cause a few of the bubble player on the 98s to drop to NPL and many of the junior 99s will also drop to NPL for one year and then possibly bump back up as seniors to combine with the 00s. This first year for this change is tough because the younger 99s will have to break into a completely established team. From there forward the oldest 2 birth years will bring an established team (the younger birth year) to older players who theoretically will have the advantage despite not having played with the established team. Feel a little bad for the junior 99s next year. Thereafter the senior year thing won't be an issue.
Thanks 10:30. I originally thought most sophmore's that were 99's would get a raw deal with the birth year change. Those girls that are 99's and on the bottom third of a team, will be hard pressed to continue. But that seems that's how it will be for almost all the age groups. I can't believe you guys let us PL parents reference our team for that many posts without pleading for a stoppage (must be in a kind mood). Personally, I do not like the birth year change and would have been more in favor of all teams condensed to graduation year only. But the governing bodies obviously know what they are doing.PL Parent
People love to hear when a team is falling apart. It's a page turner.
Not falling apart, just making a lateral move to the right. About 2 miles to the right for some. Maybe some will move to Rage or HMMS or take up an instrument.
That's pretty much what a team falling apart does....
Couldn't you say every team is "falling apart" then? If anything PL girls are in a better situation than most. I will assume majority will wind up with PAC. PAC's 00's just won a state cup and the 01's are likely the second best non ecnl team in the state behind PL right now. You would have the combining of three top teams into 2 and I wouldn't be supprised to see a couple of Penn U's top players wanting in in those teams as well. Of coarse the dream scenario would be if PAC went ecnl like they've been trying for 4 years or better yet DA. Would likely attract back a couple really good players both clubs lost to PF but I dont know how likely that is. But for now I doubt the girls are giving much thought to it(they have a third state championship to win) it's just us parents wanting to make sure they are in the best situation possible for the next season. Just forced to think about it alittle early this year.
If Classics went the DA or ECNL route, it would be a no brainer. Both PL and PU would become more of a rec club than they already are.
Going back to top regional lists - I figured i would start from ground zero sit back and read some thoughts and then put together a list that we will finalize before CASL/Bethesda tournaments.I listed the Regional/National events from last year plus some of the top 50 GS teams (not all - sorry if i excluded or missed your team - I tried to include all the teams mentioned on this board. We have 4 teams that played in a national event - i think all 4 of them should be in a top 10 unless there is a legit reason to exclude them.2015 REGION I CHAMPIONSHIPS1. FC Frederick 012.

Dude - stop already. You're using up all the space just to hear yourself talk
Dude don't stop, I enjoy the info. Thx
Wow!! That was a lot of work. Only trouble with including F2 teams is that there was 12 to 15 teams in a bracket over them. Hard to say that an F2 winner is better than F1 team that played decent, maybe went 1-1-1- and didn't make the final four in F1. But lets have fun and pick out of this list that you took the time to compile. Since most of us do not know the best teams from each state. Is it possible to list the top three from each in our region? Pa might look like this.1. PA Classics2. Penn Legacy3. Penn United4. 17765. LVUWhat would the other states region one top five look like?
Stop trying to re-invent the wheel, that's what GS does for us already. Yes there are flaws but that system does work itself out by U15 and by U16 it's more accurate. Remember the Fall league play and state cup's are not played and majority of the points for U15 and above are accumulated at Tournaments and Showcases.
My attempt at Maryland (with ECNL):1. Bethesda ECNL2. Maryland United ECNL (lost to Bethesda in ECNL)3/4. Frederick / Calvert (if they played, would be a 0-0 tie since neither can score)5. Harford Thunder (even though they beat Frederick heads up earlier this season).also considered: Montgomery Blaze (who beat Frederick) and PipelineFor Virginia (with ECNL):1. FCV ECNL2. BRYC3. FCV United4. PWSI5. Beachalso considered: VA Rush, who could move into 3rd based on their results against FCV United and PWSI in VA NPL playIf the Pennsylvania (East?) list included ECNL, then Penn Fusion would be on top. Having seen both Classics and Legacy, Legacy was clearly the better team. Century has an argument for the 5th spot if you're doing the whole commonwealth.
All would agree NEFC the clear #1?- PDA flight 1 Champion- 2 National titles July Indiana
Sorry to make it simple Top 5:1: NEFC2: FC Virginia3: PDA Storm4: Boston 5: East MeadowBetween those 5 teams that's a pool of 100+ girls lobbying to go D1 in a few years, think about it people what the end goal is for many of these girls. In my opinion doing a Top 25 is useless information.
10:55Not a bad list. However in another year it won't even be about teams, but about individual players as the recruiting kicks into high gear. The ECNL girls will all get great exposure to D1 coaches. MF, Stars, PF, WC and others not on your list will also be lobbying to go D1 and will be successful in many many cases.
9:47. you are right, I totally forgot about PF. They should have been at the top.Wasn't trying to reinvent the wheel. Was using GS 4 Life list as a reference. Then take the top 5 from each state. 11:12 You sound like a fun sucker. Did GS 4 Life just say lets try to just enjoy and talk about this year for awhile. Call your prep hero recruiter and talk to him for awhile. Is there even a DE team that is worth mentioning here?
10:11, NO, they did not beat us at National Cup, we are #1 until I say otherwise.
10:55 the top 25 list is not about the kids - it's for us bloggers and why is it useless? The kids will take of themselves if they still want to play. PS. Your list has 4 ECNL teams on it - that's useless information my friend, but you already know that. 11:12 so what will you do when it becomes about the individual players - I guess you'll be saying later to this blog since we don't talk about the individual players, well some do for some strange reason. When the the blog said don't talk about specific players.11:18 forget each state if it'snot those 5 those 100 players - nothing else matters -this is why I get under the skin of so many, i will talk about every team nothing negative just the results.almost at 5,000GS4 Life

2:30 Boca have 6 points and the others have 4 if the others win and Boca doesn't BOCA will be in last and they will be in D2 that's how relegation works last place your out and D2 1st place you are in -that's why i listed 3 teams.
@2:30 of course, understood, I think Boca has gotten better, look at September games versus October games. Interesting Boca beat TSF, I guess as others have stated the South division is the toughest with PL and 1776? You have to continue to prove yourself by winning. Hence why PDA Shore, Copa and Boca are in same boat. I cannot find any good news for PDA Shore or Copa in game history recently, I try and find good news and review the history more than anything else on each team in GS. Besides the win against GPS in August PDA shore has had issues. I am not sure what is wrong with the program at Copa, again a decent group usually, but I think it has to do with "poachinig" if you will call it that still. Good players from Copa have left over last year. I bumped into some parents over summer.
whatever happen to PDA Shore? i thought they were a up and coming team. try Nat. 2 in Mosa

Wildcats Averbuch 6Lehigh Valley 0Wildcats finish 7 0 0 and clinch 1st in EDP CentralI think everyone expected a closer game after Lehigh Valley made finals of WAGS F2.
What ? Crush beat STA ? STA must of had regional girl out........Guess that clears up NYCSL West winner. East is a big surprise this year with 4 teams fairly close in points and none of them are NYSC. One week left and first place up for grabs.
My Bethesda Finals Predictions:F1 Bethesda EU14 v. Match fit (Winner Bethesda)F2 PA Classics v. Continental (Winner PA Classics)F3 EUSA Empire United v. FC Bucks (Winner: EUSA)
5:01, you are a douche. We are better than any team NYCSL NPL, you know it, I know it, and your coach knows it, ask him.
Bethesda flights look as if they just threw teams anywhere except for flight 1??I guess flight 1 is the only important flight. Sort of like the b c and d teams are moneymakers. It's all about ecnl
5:20 you're a little unclear in your angry boast. Are you upset at 5;01's reference to STA loss to Crush or NYSC upset about season losses to other teams in division??
5:03 - you're picking an upset?? FC Bucks needs to win a game first.
Bethesda can't play Matchfit in the finals. Penn Fusion looks the obvious choice to make it from their bracket and into the finals. BRYC beat Matchfit last yet and they seem to be stronger this year while Matchfit lost their best player so go with BRYC vs. Bethesda in that sem-final. Whoever wins will lose to Penn Fusion. I'll say BRYC over Bethesda based on last time they played.
2:36 BOCA safe. Rage and Bethesda have one game each left- versus each other. So only one can win. The loser of that game gets relegated in South. South a tough division.
F1Blue. BethesdaGreen Maryland or AjaxOrange. PFWhite MFBethesdaMFWinner MF in pks
South EDP a tough division?? How so? You need to venture out more to watch some true high level games.
4:36 for you - F3 could have been higher but it looks like NJCSA didn't use their more points account. 4:28 you are probably correct. I liked a few teams in that flight actually, so I took the easy road and picked the ECNL team.4:41 Wildcats beat them last year 5:1 why would anyone expect anything different? 5:01 Looks NJ Crush is back - here come the I'm a Crush guy comments.

Your point is interested with respect to the toll playing more than one game in a day takes on a team. All the losses you listed were for NCS games after regular league games . The problem is the leagues won't let teams reschedule games and the opposing teams have incentive to capitalize on the advantage gained from a tired team.

The Crush-Haddonfield game was 0-0
8:51 not the point of the post -they lost on PKS when they may have won if they played just once that day. I posted 7 of the teams that lost their NCS game played 2 games that day - I don't know which game was played first - just find it odd.
Looks like the GPS Flash coach has mastered the art of trying to set up games when opponant would be at a disadvantage.
What is CRUSH doing next year with the age change. What about other clubs? We know ecnl is moving next year and we are already starting to hear about coaching moves. Pda has a good start for both new teams because of the depth at both age groups. WC will be weaker at the 2002 level, as well as MF. Hard to tell with other clubs?
12:06pm2002's MF will be very strong. the old PRE ECNL north team are all 2002s. this team will very solid2002's PDA will just be ok. Better players are 01s- will be in middle of pack at 02s2002's- EM will be strong as well, only issue they lose the best player who is an 012002's- World Class will be towards bottom for this age group.
Instead of the EDP leagues each getting 7500 to 8000 GS points for playing in watered down divisions. Shouldn't there be a playoff between the top four teams out of the three divisions? Then the winner of that get 6000, second place gets 2000. Seems like an awful big award for teams that really haven't had to beat any top teams. Look at the goals against average for the top teams, didn't look like a whole lot of competition going on.
That is what makes GS the joke that it is though. Of coarse that's a whole lot of points for a whole lot of nothing!
Looks similar to GDiff for ECNL and NE-NPL.All leagues are watered down because they all want to make $$$.Best would be go back to all teams/clubs competing in same leagues and best teams based on results/promotion/relegation playing in top flights as with EDP before ECNL clubs pulled all their teams out.
That's why I think State Cup and US Region 1 is a nice option until all this ECNL Money maker came through every team had a chance to prove themselves within the region not just the secluded and private clubs.
Wait the GS injection will come shortly for the EDP and NYCSL teams. GS4 Life

Those numbers are kind of surprising. Probably if we looked back even before ECNL, each league most likely had a huge disparity from the top four teams to the bottom four. The most balanced league at this time is PAGS, it doesn't have one team that has dominated the rest.
EDP North Division is actually pretty balanced, its the Central and South were the big difference between top and bottom exist.

Next year will be so different for us all. Great time to make changes and not get crap for doing so. Top three players from the top 10 teams will all be leaving to higher level clubs like WC, PDA and MF. Especially the 2003 that will have it easier. I'm already seeing girls from teams like CRUSH and others showing up in our practices. Especially the ones that the coaches run separately. WC will be very strong at 2001 next year. 2002 will suffer. PDA will do well at both age groups, remember their current u13 team is very strong where MF and WC are not. Look what happened last year to the crush team at u14 - they lost the top half of team and it was a mad scramble. Will happen to many and people won't wait until fall, when its to late. My bet is WC and PDA for 2001. PDA and MF for 2002.

3:59 so are you telling these parents to leave and join big rosters already? They better be lights out if they want to play every game. You talk like these teams are weak and any player can just show up because they are tops on their current team. I love you guys who say that.Anyone thinking of making a move to an ECNL team needs two things to consider. 1. is their kid good enough to play under pressure all the time and 2. other players on the roster might be better or might want it more. Know the fight in your kid, not how you would handle it, if they can handle it GO FOR IT.GS4 Life
3:59. Hi WC parent. You've been quiet until now!
I think people will pay more attention to GS rankings more than ECNL squads as the mad change over occurs. Many people already know PDA and those ECNL rosters will be flooded with current pool of players along with coaches idea of who they know already. Now if you non-ECNL team ranked high by mid-spring your team/club should expect a high amount of tryouts come May. You never know a what's going to happen it's just ashamed for those that have to skip a year of play due to being born Aug - Dec.
4:31 - I agree but the team/club should also be careful with the tournaments they pick. The PDA Spring kickoff doesn't give GS points. They were added manually by GS and then taken away. My guess is that's not the only tournament that has happened to. Remember these tournaments charge approx 1k per team, that's a lot of money to lose if teams stay away. That won't affect PDA as they will still draw from the ECNL clubs.

Can someone just clarify this new age rule. So our girls are now playing 01/02 years. Based on the new rule in Fall 2016 this age group will be only 2002, playing U14 again? Is this true?
To bring GS 4 Life's numbers a little closer, there were 24 EDP league teams, versus 12 in ECNL and NPL. So if ECNL and NPL had the same number, it would look more like this.Teams averaging 2 goals against or moreEDP- 8NPL- 6ECNL-4
4:56There is much debate going on right now At the US club soccer level whether or not to classify 2002 as the 14 age group or the 15 age group.US youth soccer seems to have already decided that 2002 will be classified as u15's next year.They are moving forward to align with the ODP and National team age classification.I suspect US soccer will follow suit.This is different from what was first published when the announcement regarding age group change was originally made. The 2002's were supposed to be u14 for next year.This will no doubt cause issues for 8th graders and seniors.Right now we are just taking a wait and see approach.Soccer Nut
I never understood why team are not aligned by graduation year. Wouldn't a college recruiter at a showcase want to see a group that they know is composed of the same graduating class? This is the route many other sports go during their showcases, but not soccer.
The reason it is so difficult to decide whether to make 2002 the U14 is that so many more U14s would be playing HS ball and the current U14 seasons go Sept-NovThey can either make '02s the U15 or drop U14 from Sept-Oct match play in leagues. Currently it is U15 and up that start in NOV/DEC
Funny to see WC poster outwardly recruiting Crush players. I guess they worry that Jersey kids seem to favor Stallions as a second choice. Crush players of course have no reason to go anywhere.
crush shows no college commitments. second rate club. That's reason enough

GS 4 life is crush. That's why they don't play PDA anymore and why they haven't won a thing in years but still ranked high. Also lives on this blog , just always doesn't sign off as GS 4 life. So obvious. you always said that no one would leave , but have lost so many...
This won't take long for a response - but I think you may be on to something. Crush, Bergen Bulldogs, stallions and sdfc are all the same. I'm going back to torpedoes red.

Can someone rank the nj girls clubs solely based on college commitments both sheer volume and quality?We spend a lot of time on npl vs ecnl and winning mostly meaningless tournaments. If we have some college commitment data i think it changes the discussion.
The college commitments can be extremely misleading. Clubs list the players committed regardless of whether its soccer related or not. Check last years commitment list of players and what school they were attending, then check the roster of that school this year. Strange that those names are not on the roster. So don't be an idiot and be mislead by false information. Try doing a little homework and you'll find out which club is being honest about their college commitment list.
If you are signing a letter of Intent on signing day as a senior, you are getting money to play soccer.Clubs advertise LOI day. See PDA and Matchfit last year.
PDA, Matchfit then everyone else as distant 3rd...
Regarding soccer related and money or not. The early (freshmen/sophomore)commits are all pretty much getting significant money 50% or more total costs. The older they are when they commit in general the less money they get.This spreadsheet is helpful to give perspective it also lists accomplishments so that you can gage your child's "resume" against when the time comes (very soon especially for the ninth graders) :https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AriynKqmGsRwdGUyR1ZrSFFUbHFZblNCMnBNZnNqc1E&output=html&gid=6
8:40 Since you are lazy and afraid to look, I'll find you the actual numbers so you won't just be a mindless shrill. PDA and Match Fit have an extremely higher commitment rate than other clubs, but partial scholarships do not mean much, when in the second year, even that is pulled. Many, many schools offer partials to all level of players, then pull them the second year. Its sort of a bait and switch in which the family see's this ten to even twenty thousand dollar gift, takes it and then find out they must pay the full $40,000 to 60,00 a year to continue. Only the truly gifted get to continue to get the free ride. Colleges only have so many full and partials to give out, these are given and taken away every year. For some of the families at PDA and Match, they will have their daughter going to a great college regardless of scholarship money, but it is a nice feather in the cap.
"These are given and taken away every year"You really need to stop posting incorrect information. Colleges very seldom take away a scholarship, though at times a BIGGER scholarship can be given for subsequent seasons.
This discussion really belongs on the college board. There's space there for 4999 posts.
Admin! Blog is about to hit 5000K please delete older messages. Please save the last 4 post for important things. lol
College posts are of interest in this age group as the kids are just about to embark on this journey.BTW big 12 and Big 10 at least are offering 4 year guarantees...
It's very rare that a college pulls a bait and switch on a scholarship after first year. That's just not accurate.
Just delete GS 4 life's posts and we are down to 3000 :)
Is it true if they are not committed by the time they are entering Sr. Year it's pretty much over and no chance at any D1 schools. So if you had a choice of going partial scholar at a DI and full scholar at DII what would you prefer for your daughter?
GS4life how can you say Wildcats Averbuch have a cakewalk to NPL finals when like last year they will have to not only win their NPL South League but then win 2 playoff games vs 1st and 2nd place finishers in North NPL as they did this past spring beating NJCSA Elite 2-0 in semi and TSF 5-1 in final to advance to NPL Nationals. Also you stated yesterday you were not surprised by Wildcats Averbuch 6-0 beat down of Lehigh Valley last Sunday but 2 weeks before you were correctly pointing out Lehigh Valley results were much better this year in EDP as well as Lehigh just last month advancing to final and taking Galaxy to wire in WAGS Final and commenting results could be different this season vs Wildcats Averbuch.
Heard of a scholarship landed as late as March of senior year. Spots sometimes open up late
11:11If you have the necessary funds for each - the choice would be the best academic landscape between the 2. Social may enter as well but cannot superced academic entirely.Easier of course if child doesnt have a desired academic path (major). But most do, wouldnt you think?
Spots can open up late but athletic scholarship money at Power 5 Conference D1 schools all committed to players by end of soph year of high school for that class.
Wow! Sophomore Year it surprises me that these schools take a chance so early on as 2 more years of high School can have different effects on kids. SAT scores, Grades Etc.
Soph year. Fact. Early junior year latest for D1 with any significant money.
Considering they can't contact the player until junior year. Freshman and sophomore offers are nothing more than a verbal offer , no commitment. Means nothing if you get hurt or you don't have the academics, SAT's. So who is the offer made to?? Your head coach????
Yep. Means nothing til signed. Just ask Ohio State.
Again the naysayers who have no experience. Very rarely is an offer rescinded. Considered poison to the program if they do it. in fact there is an infamous case of this involving UNC ( only ine of the very top programs could get away with this) and a NJ girl. This is how it goes generally. After an event ( as early as 2016 South Carolina ECNL event, Jeff cup and PDA no experience with Disney junior showcase maybe then too for the blue chippers) D1 schools that are interested in your daughter send an email to her club coach ( legal) saying we saw your player # 10 play and would love to talk to her more about our school. If she's interested please have her call my cell at her convenience. You should know that if your child calls and doesn't get through, she should leave a message but know that the coach cannot return her call. My experience with the older kids is to then have your child ask her coach broker a call with the college coach. The college coaches may return emails and calls to the club coaches. Then the club coach tells your child to call at a certain time. Sometimes it's just a this is all about our great school type conversation. Sometimes they say well we need to see you a few more times. Then email the coach her schedule ( along with others she is interested in who might not have reached out yet) before each showcase. Sometimes they invite her to an unofficial visit which always happens at sometime before an offer is extended and often the offer is extended at the visit. Offers also can be extended when the player calls after a visit or event. Often they instruct the kid to call for feedback after every event. The coaches continue to watch and coach the player even after they commit. So the club coach is the go between to keep the process ncaa compliant. Frankly I wish the ncaa would cut out the loophole so all would be recruited during junior year. It's getting rapidly earlier which I do not think is a good thing.
3:15 - 100% correct. player can contact coach, coach cannot contact player. It's very easily worked around. And by the way that only goes for D1. D3 schools can contact a player.

3:15 Offers are almost never pulled in their first year, that is a given. It is in the second year that it is most likely to happen. It actually is more likely to happen on a partial scholarship than a full one. There is the occasion where a school will actually move a scholarship from a partial to a full scholarship if the student blows them away. The reason transfers are so high is because students lose there partial scholarship money, and look to find a school more friendly to mom and dad's pocketbook. Many times schools will pick up the tab after a year and if the player fits their system. As you know, schools only have a limited number of scholarship available (full and partial), do you really think if that coach has an opportunity to pick up a player they think will change their success, that they won't make room? College coaches have families also and this is how they support them. Just like with any soccer or sports team, the supporting cast is always disposable.
Bethesda looks like this will be the easiest road Penn Fusion has had to the finals in a long time. Nice to see Match Fit not worry about their name and put their girls in a tournament with non ecnl teams. Penn Fusion gets to show how much they have improved here, doesn't win it, but gets to the finals.
Obi-Wan Kenobi has spoken.
The force is strong with him, I think.
Many will wish to join the Dark Side once the age change takes affect, but few will be have the ability to make it happen and most will to accept the crumbs that are their destiny.
Leave next year talk until at least January. All will be ok. Soccer will go on. Your kids will survive it.

Kudos to PDA keeper one break away cost them the game, otherwise great saves. Edp open cup game was certainly intense. It is a good group I did notice many players in the team maybe 7 subs. Much subbing done often by PDA.
Congrats to the Boca moms on another great showing, jumping up and down and supporting your girls. How about that, another easy win out west for PF, although Portland might have a shot.

10:17 You were the rejected kid, weren't you?
Need to de-dupe :)
10:17...As opposed to jumping up and down without supporting "the girls"??
Still wrong, 5:59
Why does 559 keep trying to propagate mis information? It is true that some partials are upped, but not usually at the expense of others still in the program. Is it that he knows his kid is not D1 level and is trying to bring down others who aspire to that achievement? Cheapening their accomplishment is pretty pathetic. Transfers happen for lots of reasons including academic having nothing tondo with soccer. Most kids transfer pretty laterally as far as costs but sometimes lower level soccer. But not always. Look at Morgan Andrews who transferred from Notre Dame to USC. Her style fits the PAC 12 better which may have been one of the reasons for the transfer. Playing time or position are major movers and a kid transferring from say unc may end up at Vanderbilt which is more expensive. The scholarship from the transfer then becomes available. I think the early commitment trend is much of the problem. Kids don't develop as anticipated or change their aspirations. It is hard enough to go through this with a 16 or 17 year old. Helping your 14 year old with emails and phone calls is a major challenge and fraught with possible errors, but is it right to allow the opportunities to pass her by?
I could careless about the school and their scholarship situation, if they want my girl as a soph and my girls wants them done deal why would anyone let the opportunity pass - If she doesn't turn out to be the player they thought - that's not her problem - she turned out to be the player she is. Also if she holds out injury can always come into play when it matters (junior/senior year) if she doesn't accept.I have no problem with a kid getting an early offer GREAT FOR HER that means someone sees something great in her, like I said if she doesn't turn into that player that's not on her she can only be who she is.GS4 Life

Besides results, no idea haven't seen them play this year.One can also say easy league schedule?2:0 NJ Stallions NPL-014:1 Match Fit NPL-011:0 Massapequa SC NPL-017:0 Brentwood SC NPL-011:0 PSA NPL-013:0 NJ Stallions NPL-014:1 Quickstrike FC NPL-011:0 STA NPL-01GS 4 Life
You see them play every weekend, the team in orange that your daughter plays on????
A special shout out to the SDFC trainer this morning who opened his car door and dumped his trash in the rt46 McDonald's parking lot. He wad literally 20 ft from a garbage can. No wonder your program is crap with trainers like that. You are lucky I was running late, or I would have embarrassed you and your colleague in your little white car.
GS 4 Life. So far you have been positively identified as a Wildcat/Crush/Stallion/PDA/Galaxy parent. I think they finally have you pinned down. Kills me that we are not going to Bethesda and playing the teams listed there, even if we were F2, I would still rather be there. Great list of schools watching too.Did anyone see the #1 ranked Florida girls play Vanderbilt yesterday. Keeper was Christiana Ogunsami from Cherry Hill NJ and was awesome as Florida was on offense almost the whole first half and most of the second, winning 2-1. Was she a PDA Player back in her day?PL Parent
9:22 you got the wrong guy. But like I always say - if you want be to be Crush I will.
Not a single big conference D1 college represented at Bethesda. Mostly D3 schools. Not a good tournament for ECNL teams. Only 5 D1 schools reprsented and a pathetic showing from the A10, Patriot, and MAAC.
10:19You think? Do some research before you blog.
D1 doesn't have to be Big conference. Those types of schools are not for everyone. Some want to play D1 but also go for, you know, their studies?
I guess you could be sitting at home instead or playing Hempfield Fall Classic like PL parent. Just kidding, I read your pain.
It states on website that "Historically MANY coaches come who do NOT register." That's a lot of coaches between the ones that register and the unknown number of ones that don't. But yea, complete waste....
SDFC? Drawing a blank.
Florida was #6 and she played awesome!
SDFC aka (SDA) club out of Montclair. They actually had a good team in this age group a few years ago.
And 9:37 did you see Danae O'Halloran from Toms River starting for Vanderbilt?She played for NJ Wildcats. Jersey girls well represented in D1 college soccer.
Correct Vanderbilt goalie Christiana Ogunsami that played awesome and was from Continental FC ECNL club and she was a multisport athlete but once again she is blossoming at a later stage of her life that many schools probably passed on her.
O'Halleran originally recruited and played a lot and often started in backlimne for 2 years for UNC but transferred this year to Vanderbilt where she plays whole game.
Thanks, 9:06. Where'd you find those brackets? I only can find the team list.
O'Halleran former Wildcat Hmmmm! She didn't go ECNL route and still made the UNC roster and now at Vanderbilt nice to see stories like that.
State Cup Predictions?
Who cares about State Cup not snobby strong teams did not participate because they think it's below there model. Either way good luck to those left this weekend at State Cup.
SDFC U16 a very very good club.
12s and 13s also very good at SDFC
Birth-year registration. To calculate the proper year for a player, take the ending year of the seasonal year and subtract the player’s birth year. You may also refer to US Soccer’s Age Matrix.Example #1: 2017 – 2002 = 15; the player is a U15 for the 2016-17 seasonExample #2: 2017 – 2001 = 16; the player is a U16 for the 2016-17 season

Vandy game was played well too, very few whistles with both clubs playing to their strengths. Its amazing how stronger teams pull out games like that. Congrats to the Jersey Girls on both teams. As far as Bethesda, I know those may not be the big D1 majors that some want, but we all can't be UCLA and Stanford bound. PL Parent
Thus,,,,,no players are repeating an age group - though the August-December kids will skip an age group.Got it.
Also - there will be Aug-December kids that have no showcase to play in (no U18) their senior year.
7:18 That is the part of the birth change I do not understand. Why would the governing bodies allow it to affect students and players in their most important years?
All 11v11 games at CASL have been cancelled
Sorry to hear about CASL, but at least Bethesda looks playable, hope it continues!
I'm sure those that are doing Bethesda next weekend are glad and those that didn't now wish they were. That definitely stinks.
All those not able to play CASL will probably want to get into the high level play that will take place at The Hempfield Fall Classic.
Someone at PL sure is bitter.
At least they have allowed the team to play in the 15U bracket. So the speed of play will be a little quicker than the 14U bracket which is nothing but "B" teams. So we're thankful for that.PL Parent
as opposed to bigger sizes "B" teams? I wouldn't expect speed of play to be be different only size.
Your a real buzzkill 6:15. Can't we look forward to something?
