only 3 in NJ? I think you can add Nj Wildcats, STA, NJ Crush, TSF, SJEB, NJCSA & NJ Rush to that list.
Funny, everyone thinks that people are in ECNL for prestige or college scholarship. My daughter just likes her team. I hate the rosters of 20, 22, 24 whatever. I would never have let her join the team in the first place if I had known. I think that large rosters are bad for the kids at an age when they are still developing their sense of self worth. BUT - my daughter does not want to leave - even if she gets left off the roster - she says she will just work harder because she likes the girls and likes the practices. I have tried to get her to leave. And I don't think she cares about the "prestige" - she just wants to practice and play with girls that she likes.
No only 3 above average npl teams in nj. And once they play outside of nj in top tournaments. Average at best

Great inflated stats why not do it for the all D1 schools and see where your %'s fall then.
So about 50% is non-ECNL. Plenty of room for everyone.
This is about the 97th time this blog has had this argument and same stats given every time. Can we move on from this old boring subject. The stats really doesn't tell the story for either ECNL or non-ECNL teams. It does say that parents of either can actually afford an ACC School and that their daughter is smart enough to attend one. The stats don't tell you if the player is playing on a partial ride, a full ride or a walk on. It also does not tell if they are even receiving playing time or just practice fodder, but is still being listed as a team member. Lets face it folks, twenty or thirty thousand in academic scholarship money is like gold compared to athletic scholarship money. Being that the former cannot be taken away when a better and stronger player shows up next year. Six years of ECNL at six to eight grand a year should earn a little higher percentage of college exposure. Lets give those parents a little credit too.
Thanks for your honesty 2:35. I believe most girls feel the same way. They are not thinking about being on the best team or what college they can get in to or if they will get a scholarship. They are playing on a team with their friends and playing a game they love. What could be better than that.Only us idiots on the blog are thinking of these things for our daughters.
Who advanced in State Cup game tonight.PDA Ajax or JPS? I'm assuming Ajax
1. Stats coming soon for all other d1 schools. Once their website is updated.50% from 70 Clubs nationally, that's 1.4 clubs per state. That's ECNL. Some Schools don't offer athletic scholarships. But they still recruit they find other ways. Full partial who cares. These kids are good enough to play for these schools and they come from 70 clubs compared to the other 50% from how many hundreds/thousands of clubs?I can never get tired of these stats. SO the girl that trains with a non-ecnl moves over to ECNL team at u16 she uses them they use her two way street. Not inflated - life.

Does the PDA parent whose daughter isnt playing really think she wont get a chance to play in college if she leaves to play for a team that will put her on the field?
It's not a pda parent on this site .It's a pda administrator and/or coaches selling for $$$$.So you have any idea of how much more $$$ they will make if they can put these inflated rosters across as the way to get scholarships???
Well let's see.Going from allowed 18 to 22 is an additional 10K per team(4 extra players x $2500. per year dues).Now going to 26 players per team means 20K per team(remember no additional costs as still 1 coach 1 field 1 entry fee per team for each league and tourney), So 3 or 4 teams per age group x U9-U18, that's 11 age groups x an extra 60K per year per age group and that's just on the girls side.You can surely see why they are putting such a hard sell on the need for parents to accept these larger rosters and sitting and not dressing for events or not playing as the price for getting in college. It's big $$$ if that can put this idea over.
And what is advantageous about going off to college and spending your precious time there with more soccer. Not the best use of a kid's time. Path sold by the youth sports industry.
When is the Crush vs TSF state cup game?
7:28 Can't argue your point. It's valid. You said 60k extra an age group with a roster of 26 and i guess 30k extra with a roster of 22, correct?Using the same numbers it takes 45k to run one team? If they become DA and have to drop cost to zero for those players on the DA team - I guess they found their way. How did you think they would be able to do this? Did you think their coaches would do it for free?But I agree if they don't have a team play for free and it's still business as usual hard to argue your point.8:56 Isn't that up to your young adult to decide - they are no longer kids by that time
Yes, the student will decide but nothing wrong with offering a little mature advice and perspective. Especially in this current environment of apparently unquestioned march toward college soccer. Why? I certainly will encourage questioning that choice, even for a stud player. College is a rare time in life. Use it wisely.
Nobody is forcing anyone. There are plenty of choices if that is not for you. And why would anyone else care. Girls on team don't and if they do they should leave. Everyone else it doesn't affect you so why should you care?
2:35I have gone through exactly what you are going through with my youngest. she has moved to her second team about a year ago. she was very hesitant about leaving her friends. What I found through the moving process is that my daughter was more fearful of the unknown. Right now when you propose for her to move she has nothing to compare it to on the other side except the unknown. If you feel a need to move then your first strategic move should be for her to simply work out with other team and get to know the girls under no pressure to move-just for additional training. Let it naturally progress and then let her choose. Soccer Nut
Just writing about my own experience like everyone else on these forums. When someone comments to a kid "Nice game, you could play D1", or "colleges will show you some love", like that is the holy grail, she deserves an explanation of what they are talking about.

I love the college talk as much as the next person. But I know that at the end of the day it all comes down to what our kids want.
I don't need some one suggesting to my kid what she might want without a complete discussion of pros and cons. College soccer is not a dominant discussion point on the sideline but when it does arise, the cons don't seem to get much air time.

Any State Cup scores out there?
In VA State Cup, FCV United 01 beat VSA HEat 2-0, and FCV United Annandale 01 beat WGBC 5-0. Note of caution on the 5-0 - team was loaded (1/2 team) with FCV pre-ECNL girls!

I do not understand the use of guest players during State Cup games. Same thing with the Champions League. Every team caries enough players to compensate if they have a couple out. The fact that the Champions League allows up to three guest players makes the whole thing kind of a farce.
The state of soccer for PA State Cup is horrible. PL winning by nine goals and 1776 winning by six? Penn United winning 9-8 just shows you how bad those teams were. Three games played and 32 goals scored.
Maybe those teams that use guest players in SC games and Champions league should carry 26 players?
Were there any FCV pre-ECNL girls on the FCV ASC Heat team in VA State Cup? Their score was surprisingly one-sided too considering that team was winless in CCL before they quit that league for WAGS,
How is the Region 1 Champions league working out? Everything you hoped for? Guest players makes it seem more like a tournament than a league. Happy?
FCV ASC Heat was not in in CCL. They were refused entry when they moved to FCV (lots of bad blood between FCV and CCL). So basically any standings will show that they won 0 as they 'forfeit' all games.No ECNL players in that team: but Chesterfield are not a good side
7:12The 9-8 score was PK'sAnd yes you get some mismatches in the first round, PL & 1776 are both strong teams, probably top 2 in the state, so it's to be expected. You're telling me there are no similar blowouts in other state cups?
I was made aware today that CFC CT teams rotate each game, one team plays a ECNL and other NPL. Next game they rotate, how is this fair
Same club same age they can do anything they wish.No particular roster need be submitted
No guest players or secondary players can be used in any State Cup game in PA East. Primary players only.
As long as this is understood before you join and pay, what is wrong with it. If you don't like it, don't choose that club.
9:37You should never look at in anymore that you are playing against just a single team. You are playing against a club of girls that are age appropriate.This is the new way of youth soccer.
Actually per NPL rules, only 4 players are allowed to play on a ECNL roster and NPL roster per season. CFC obviously are breaking the rules
PA State Cup doesn't change much from year to year. 1776, Ukrainians, PL going forward. Nice to see Classics join in the mix too, but wasn't Reading Rage was suppose to be better? We'll see how much Penn United has improved when they play PL next week. PF no longer participating or else one bracket would already be a forgone conclusion.
10:57Like last year right?
Teams vs CFC, anyone know the results below belong to CFC west or ArsenalPDA storm vs CFC Pda won 1-0 and tied 2-2. MF ECNL won 2-0 and 5-0MF NPL tied 0-0 and lost 1-0PDA North tied 2-2 and did not play 2nd game to date PDA South won 5-0 and tied 1-1First thing that catches my eye is MF ECNL proves to be better team over NPL team. 2 wins out scoring both teams 7-0 while NPL team has 1 tie and 1 loss, while not being able to score a goalnext is PDA storm may not be much better than their 2 nd and 3 rd teams. south and storm have same record vs same competition vs CFC teams. I will research which CFC teams played who on which date
What other NPL clubs do this "Swapping"? Do they keep the entire teams in tact and just change the league, game to game or do they just swap a few players each game?
I heard same thing about CFC, it's whole team that rotates. No other club does this.
10:55. Too bad this is pre-Ecnl. And no one cares because it's u13
Unfortunately, the pre ecnl is not a true ecnl league. That is why the pre ecnl flight plays under npl and not ecnl. Get your facts straight. Pre ecnl is just a made up flight to get the players use to the ecnl way. The players all belong to the npl in this age group. No true ecnl until u14.
All rules all apply for U13 Pre ECNL and NPL, these games count towards within NPL standings. Please get FACTS straight. Reason why CFC can not qualify for playoffs for breaking these rules, this only hurts the teams in hunt for playoff picture in both U13 leagues.
So CFC can't qualify for playoffs?
No they can't, reason why our lost should not count
Wildcats, how's that "Champions" League working out?800 miles, 0-2 record 1 GF 7 GA?
Who did they play and what were the scores?
NPL Roster Maximums. A maximum of twenty-six (26) players may be rostered on any NPL Team’s NPL Roster
4-0, 3-0 & 4-1 losses in one month not good way to start the Spring season. Ouch!
The decline as usual for these type of teams have already started.Remember just a short while ago how they were bragging about being # 1 on Got Soccer.
I've killed FSA for their GS decision on the board. But they just shut me up big time. IF NPL are B teams that the clubs don't care about FSA proved us all wrong as they allow their players to update profiles just like the ECNL only players on the ECNL website.
@11:21pm April 11: I don't find mf pre-ecnl to be better then their npl team or vice versa. Both teams are decent and have had success individually verse different teams. You only make comparison verse one academy not others such as PDA teams, EM, or others.
Who cares who's better - MF can only field 1 ECNL team at this age and I'm sure the parents of the players that are tops and the coaches want the best players on that team so they can reach the ECNL post season regardless of what team they are on now. Obviously where they play will have an impact on that.If they stay north they need to fight WC and PDA for players however if they go south they go to a territory that's open and they would be the only game in town.All you guys that make it a this team vs this team show how much vision you have and as such your posts don't surprise me.
My daughters team had a great friendly yesterday against one of the best pre-ecnl teams in this area. Although they lost the game they played very well, and executed what they have been taught, perfectly. We were up 2-0 at the half, but lost 3-2 on a strong comeback by the pre-ecnl team. They are a talented and tough bunch. Hats off to them, and thanks for the invite!
worldclass is one of the weaker pre - ECNL teams
We shall see in the Fall when wins count to advance to Seattle, WA?This year wins only matter in the NPL flight as the winners go to Indiana.The Pre-ECNL flight has 10 very solid teams and the 2 PA teams but you really don't know how a coach is using these games with nothing on the line.
Don't kid yourself- They are all trying to win.
5:41, is that it, is that all you have to add? I knew that comment would follow, I knew it. This board sucks ass, and comments like that perfectly illustrate this.
its very simple. Each ECNL team is trying their best to win with what they have so that they can see what they lack for next year.You are not experimenting anymore-you are beta testing to see where your weaknesses exist.If you think they are going to beta test at u14 then you have no understanding at whats at stake for these coaches.
5:41, tell us what team does your child play for, and what position does she play?
5:56It looks like the 5:41 post was correcting what 5:09 posted.My daughters team had a great friendly yesterday against One Of The Best pre-ecnl teams in this area.
5:54 I never said they weren't trying to win - but at the end of the day it's just a league title nothing more nothing on the line but a win or not no National event for the champion is all I said. Am I wrong?
YEP!Just setting the record straight;
Albertson used Pre ECNL players yesterday against PDA South which is also not allowed. But that team breaks rules all the time with illegal players.
My daughter's team has played World Class on several occasions and they are a very solid team that is playing well. They recently won 2nd flight a Jeff Cup and are playing well in the NPL league. Not sure who 5:41 is affiliated with but I highly doubt their team would handle them easily.
5:58 i agree 5:58.
6:06 Why is that illegal? They are using a US Club pass - girls can play for any team they are eligible for. I posted the roster requirement earlier. They are allowed to dress 26 players.Didn't you want a better game or would you rather have played the doormat?
6:06Your statement of "but you really don't know how a coach is using these games with nothing on the line.i inferred that statement as to mean that the coach would make a move somehow as to jeopardize the win for development purposes. It matters to these teams where they finish in the standings and they are trying their best to win. Winning this PRE ECNL league makes a statement that their players are ready for the show come fall. and for the ones that finish towards the Botton, well, they have some work to do.

6:13 Just meant that the coach might take a longer look at a girl they are looking to replace next season while still playing for the win. If there was something on the line I'm sure that type of an evaluation will be saved for a tournament game instead of a league game.
6;08The truth of the matter is that Worldclass plays a very sloppy unstructured game- and they have difficulty linking up 4 consecutive passes under pressure.
6:08 did you see what 6:18 is saying? They look like a solid team that can play with any team to me.
Big win for FCV United in NPL VA today. beat PWSI 1-0 and if they win through will force the play off against PWSI for National spot.PWSI are a filthy side....being physical is one thing but these girls take it to a whole other level. Elbows everywhere and truly a dirty side.
6;17At this time the coaches already know who are the weaker players so while those players may still get their time, Their main function now is to see how what they put together fares against the other talent in the region.
I think it's pretty sad that my comment about a friendly game would garner such hate and malice. There was no need to add that you think they are one of the weaker pre-ECNL teams, no need at all. It's impossible to post any kind of story on here, without the petty comments of insecure men, just sad.

6:24 I'll get to VA standings in a little Thanks for the update.
6:29Just keeping the facts straight -Now if you said that your team played East Meadow, i would have said indeed, they are one of the strongest teams in the region.
I thought WC tied EM 0-0 a couple of weeks ago, does that not show that they are a good team?
@640No it does not.
Their overall Pre encl. standings and placement in second flight of major tournaments shows that they are an "average elite" team with lots of work to do.They can certainly beat other premier teams in the region-like NYSC but their goal is to be able to compete nationally.
Sure it does, more than you will ever know. What makes you an expert about this? You know as much as I do, which isn't much. I think you should go have another glass of wine and get ready for Game of Thrones.
6:47Worldclass plays a 4-3-3 attacking style. They donot use their midfielders. They have a two strong backs a good little mid fielder who sometimes plays on the outside. Most of their goals are scored on set pieces or chaos around the box. They continue to play a pressure cover in order to force mistakes. Very rarely will you see any combination play in their scores. They have lots of starts and restarts because of the inability to keep the ball under pressure.No 6:47, I know much more about these teams than you do.If you would like to discuss the game some more, i would be more than happy too.
Sorry No VA scores reported yet.
1:49 ONLY reason you wont the Pre ECNL to be better than your NPL team, would be your child is on this team.Look at the comparison mentioned above vs CFC team. NPL struggled with a tie and a loss, ECNL team won both those games vs same competition, if true about teams being rotated
6:06 Not breaking rules, only 4 players can play on the ECNL team and NPL team. this is the max allowed to be shared.
6:12, it is illegal, players can not be on both rosters. This is not allowed with the exception of 4 players.
2. NPL Roster Rules2.1 NPL Roster Maximums. A maximum of twenty-six (26) players may be rostered on any NPL Team’s NPL Roster.2.4 Player Registration. All players on a NPL Roster must be NPL Registered Players2.5 An NPL Game Day Roster may include NPL Registered Players from any age group for which the player is age eligible
@7pmActually The ECNL team looks better trained than the NPL team. it appears although, the product is not complete that this team represent the best foundation for building the future ECNL team. And of course that probably means adding some NPL players and getting rid of some ECNL players.

It seems NJX just doesn't take to losing so well? You may get another chance at them in the playoffs. NJX can't come on here saying they should be the MF ECNL team and now be calling for games not to count. Really?
11:12 What makes you think I'm with NJX.This is a straight through league. A balanced schedule is used for the playoffs if All the teams don't play the same teams the same number of times that's a problem isn't it? Is it fair for one team to play the better team and for the other to play the lesser?
6:22- check out the CFC Schedule, each team will play the same opponent. In another words, Arsenal play NPL, WEst play ECNL one weekend. Next season, it got flipped.Each team in the league will NOT play the same CFC twice
Then I stand corrected. If the schedule is balanced then everything counts.If you did the research already. Can you break down how the NJ teams did against both CFC teams. I can do this later, but if you already looked it up, just thought I would ask.
7:55 - I was just was looking at that. It is crazy. There were weekends that the CFC NPL team played another NPL team on Saturday then played an ECNL team on Sunday. Like when the LI teams went up there in Oct. Albertson played Arsenal on Sat and then East Meadow played CFC West on Sunday. Maybe CFC feels both teams are equal. Although by the scores they put up it doesn't seem like it. Very Odd stuff.
CFC had this approved with the league. So Match Fit your loss counts. CFC knowingly forfeited qualification to the NPL finals, after all it's all about development and stop calling it ECNL, it's not. This gave both CFC teams great exposure to both leagues. Next year at u14 when it counts one team will be designated ECNL and the other NPL. At U15 they form a United team.
Some weekday state cup action this week.Predictions?
Why do you all care so much about which team played who? U13 is a developmental year and I was happy to see my kid playing a tough side. I actually like what CFC is doing for their players. PDA, MF and some of the other qualified programs should have done this for u13 also.
8:32 Thank you. I hope people will stop crying about this now.
Did not you could forfeit requirement to go the finals. IMO that is a big advantage. Kids can play their best in a competitive league without fear of being required to travel to Indiana for a meaningless U13 "National Championship" in the middle of July. That "prize" for winning the league is more of a threat IMO.
Is someone fishing to hear that their team will win in SC this week..?#Crush
The roster posts on GS is not correct for a few teams that I know of.
are people seriously checking the GS rosters for U13 girls teams? What's next, are you going to tweet injury reports and vacations?
Don't judge 10:34How serious you take different games at different levels are very individualistic.Some have no involvement -other parents are obsessive. I can only surmise from this that one enjoys the youth soccer experience for their daughter in a different way and will go to different lengths for their involvement.Your post infers that only your level of involvement is the right way.All others that are more involved than you most be too involved.Time passes quickly and i say enjoy to the level that makes you happy as long as you are not hurting anyone and the discussion is an honest one with no malice intended .Soccer Nut
PDA South beat the NPL team and tied pre ECNL team.MF NPl beat NPl team and lost to ECNl team PDA North tied ECNL team and has not played the second game yetIf you play both teams thats balanced. MF NJX complains about playing weak teams, then when they lose to an average pre ECNL team they cry foul.
When did the north and south team tie the pda ecnl team.I donot see that in any box scores
11:10 were scores vs CFC teams.
I thought we just went over how there is not one specific NPL team or Pre-ECNL team for CFC. 11:10 would make more sense if the poster specified Arsenal and West
Here you go:PDA South beat West, tied ArsenalMF NPL tied West, lost to ArsenalPDA North tied Arsenal, have yet to play West
6 NJ women rostered on the U19 and U20 national teams. Represent NJ proudly!
Where have the Wildcats been? No posting about bad field conditions, refs or game times.Last 3 games 0-3 1 Gf 11 GA 1,500 miles. Can they convert their miles into GS points?Looks like playing in the top tournaments and flights, 1-3-8, is really paying off. They are a Region 1 team now 0 W-2 L, 1GF 7 GA, 800 miles traveled.The only thing they are developing is excuses and hemorrhoids.
Not a Wildcats parents or even from NJ (thank God), but it seems like you're a bit obsessed with that team. First you start by saying you're surprised they're not on here making excuses and then you finish your unprovoked rant by stating that they are developing excuses.Maybe you should worry less about them and work harder on getting a life.

Look Soccer nut. Don't tell me what my post infers or pretend to know what I think, or what my level of involvement is. Just because you sign your stupid tag at the end of your posts doesn't give you a license to be a smug condescending douche.
So if cfc plays in the playoffs, which team plays the game? Whichever teams' "turn" it is? Since both teams got you to that position, how do you choose, just curious.
I thought they were excused from having to go?
12:57 agreed. In a month most of the NJ U14 rosters will be set. It is amazing how quickly the seasons go by.
1:27Why don't you tell us all what you think, instead of insulting people.
Wildcats just needs to hold serve in State Cup (make final) to secure its deserved reputation atop NJ U13 soccer.
Excused? I guess that's one way of saying it. Would be a nice trip to a part of the country you would never visit unless you needed to go.This is the part of soccer that gets over looked. yeah it's easy to throw mud - but just count how many mini-vacations you have had in the last year or 2 because of soccer. Memories!!

1:27I only post my tag so that I can remind myself that although, i am still anonymous, I still need to be responsible with what I post and treat people on this blog similar to what I would say in person.Good luck to you and your daughter during try-out season.Soccer Nut
Soccer Nut,You are being too nice to that guy, you are a classy guy, and I for one appreciate your thoughtful and honest comments. Keep it up!
Congrats njx. You finally got a home game in Holmdel, not an hour away. Only took a year and to play in the lowly state cup to get it. Enjoy your state cup and short time together the end is coming soon. Hope there is no hangover from this weekend and losing to a average ecnl team.
5:29What State Cup is your daughter playing in? Or is she not rostered because of you?
Soccer Nut doesn't even need to respond to the angry idiot that puts everything down that is brought up on this blog. The "Nut" is usually the one that actually brings something insightful to the table. Isn't it easy for the blogger to bash the Wildcats for having a rough go in the first couple games of the Champions League, especially when his daughters teams isn't in it and getting crushed. I sure that the Wildcats parents are seeing the same thing PL parents are during games. That their girls are finding out what they need to work on to get to the level they want to be at. Its much better than beating up on local teams that and not being pushed to excel.PL Parent
I do apologize to the Spell Check Nazi for not proof reading the last post before sending.
Yes - CRUSH won big time...
What is big time? 4-0? Guessing, MF wins easily too.
What was the score
Website says MF won 3-2.
wow 3-2 doesn't seem easily by MF.
CRUSH and STA will be a good game, with STA moving through.
Funny how there is no talk about this weekends tournament. If the Crush guy was going, the talk leading up would be here, except the parts about how nice family soccer travel is and how fun the 8 hour drive to Richmond is. I'm looking forward to a nice 30 minute drive this weekend and enjoying Sunday dinner at home. Not sure I understand why others don't play in this instead of the long travel? Indint like PDA either, but Im sure they are capable of running a great tournamanent.
EDP NPL finally has some action I think. They had a score posted previously that was changed. Not sure if the below results will stand.

What was the score of CRUSH , TSF game?
TSF 2-0 over Crush
Crush looked terrible could have been 4-0 in the first half.
Could've gone either way. Wind was a big factor.
If this is true, another crush team can't make it past first game, wow. Will you bail on the consolation round too?
Wait a minute. Wind was a big factor??? I thought those excuses (including bad refs and mud) were not allowed on this blog? Or are they only allowed with teams that play in lower flights and lesser leagues? Next you will say that the 35 minute car ride had an effect on the girls. Or that the juice boxes were not the flavor they like.
I think the wind comment was sarcasm. It had to be, no?
10:23, I would say it's true.. if Crush won, we would have heard about it by now. They would've been live blogging from the sidelines last night. Pretty sure the crushcopter has built in wifi.
Crush club robbing those parents blind. Some one should ask the coaches why in every age group, there is a steady decline after u12.Wake up! This club has no idea how to put together a consistent premier team. And they charge top dollar for the pleasure of their company!
Crush actually does a good job developing players. The problem is the good players have been leaving for ECNL teams.
12:00, perhaps about developing, but totally true about better players leaving for WC, PDA and MF. The simply cannot compete with the ECNL tag, too many dreams to chase.
Any chance Crush can beat STA in NYCSL? Maybe STA will get the time wrong, again?
EVERY team relies heavily on their 4 to 5 best players. Once they leave for PDA, Mf or World Class you can't replace that talent.PDA has been able to build 2 competitive NPL teams. Will be interesting to see if MF can put together a good NPL team when they bring those strong NJX players to their ECNL team.MF ECNL should be a very good team with the addition of the MF NPL players and some of the non rostering Storm players.Does anybody really know where the NPL and ECNL teams will practice/play next year?
12:10, yes, they are going to be practicing in Orangeburg, NY. Nice complex, with working bathrooms!
The best athletes leave for better clubs and teams, CRUSH didn't develop that....
Why are they robbing parents blind? They must be doing something right if they are getting kids ready for the next level. Comes with the territory develop and eventually lose some talent. Name of the game.I think STA has put a lot of pressure on both Crush and NYSC to win their games no room to slip. From the 5 Region1 NPLs - I think NEFC and STA are through it's just a matter of time. EDP hasn't played any games yet really and NENPL has a playoff still to be played as does VA NPL assuming PWSI doesn't win the Spring.
Pretty sure no PDA players are going to Match FitBut we shall see
Very interestingMF ECNL already very solid according to this blog.Now you want to add MF NPL and Non rostering Storm players in addition to other players?How good is this team if they can take on so many players?and how many roster spots do they have that they can replace?What happens to Storm if they lose 6 spots where do they get thereplacements from? If it's internal I'm sure those players are already having their tryouts at practice. Very interesting month to come.Will new players accept roster spots to teams above 18? Will players leave from teams with 18+
CRUSH is the single most expensive club in the state, period. And they have the worst sloped soccer pasture as well, WCFC is right around the corner - we welcome your next best athlete. Northern counties is a good option and close by - you would be able to compete and not travel to LI.
How much is Crush?
12:41- If your currently not rostering for a team why would you come back? Do players 16 thru 18 play much when they are rostered?12:49 According to the ECNl website Storm has 22 players. If they cut 6 (think thats too much) they could add 4 new and still be at 20.This is all speculation but this will be a very interesting tryout season..
12:56What year did your kid get cut? Try to get over it.
Look at ECNL rosters at PDA and they all have 23-26 players. My guess is they all started with 26 players, the max you can carry.
Match Fit also has that many. U-14 team shows 26 girls.
I'd imagine they all get ample time in friendlies and scrimmages.There are really 16. Then 4 numbers repeat. And 7 players do not have a number
18 or 22 or 26 they all have the same chance to play. But not all of them can. What happens when you have so many good players on one roster. So the question is are you going to teach your daughter to find away or are you going to take the easy way and bring her to a team that she won't have to fight for anything but wins?Tough call. It's a win win for everyone involved. If you stay the club is happy and so is the player.If you leave the club is happy because a player that didn't buy in is out and the player is happy because she is leaving and a New player will be happy because they have made a very good team and only time will tell if they stick
1:49 Good point.1:47- Can they be rostered on both ECNL and NPL? That might explain duplicate numbers.
1:52 I agree - by now going Into ECNL year 1 next season - these teams are all just about ready to go. If your kid is on one of these clubs you already know if your kid is in their plans. If they were they would be at practice with ECNL team simple. I doubt they win a spot at tryouts. The only thing tryouts will do is confirm who is leaving ECNL team and can they make NPL team stronger.
NENPL teams will benefit from tryouts.Players replaced by ECNL teams players 19-26 will either move to another club or move to NPL team after tryouts and have an immediate impact on the road to INDIANA. These will be very good players joining a very good team already pushing 6 girls out. If i was on NPL team I would want to know the positions of the players on the chopping block and have a plan B ready for my kid.
Just checking in, can't believe FC CRUSH lost in round one, so much for that top 3 spot they always wanted. Have they won anything since indoor state cup 2 years ago? Speaking of, I believe a u12 team won that cup this year over sta and TSF, what does that say?
The U14 ECNL web site for MF lists 26 different girls. They are not all on the team?
5 of the final 8 are set. Dragons, Galaxay and STA to follow?
TSF got a little revenge for NCS semi final loss.Semi-Finals A3 NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH (NJ) 1 STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 01 (NJ)Semi-Finals B2 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI (NJ)1 TSF ACADEMY 01/02G (NJ) Final3 NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH (NJ) 1 NJ CRUSH FC TSUNAMI (NJ)
The ECNL teams in NJ and NY are about equal in My book.Most have quantity but lack real quality.Match fit -if you include the NPL team, may have more quality. This age group will be interesting in this region as teams like Penn fusion and or East Meadow may benefit the most if some more real quality come into their program.Match fit and PDA may end up "splitting the baby" as real quality may be split between them.
2:37 what is your MF might have more quality if they include NPL team based on?PDA has 2 NPL teams that did equal to or better than MFNPL team did against common teamsMatch Fit ECNL2:0 CFC Arsenal U13 Girls Sky5:0 CFC West U13 GirlsMatch Fit Academy NPL0:1 CFC Arsenal U13 Girls Sky0:0 CFC West U13 GirlsPDA Storm1:0 CFC Arsenal U13 Girls Sky2:2 CFC West U13 GirlsPDA South NPL2:2 CFC Arsenal U13 Girls Sky5:0 CFC West U13 GirlsPDA North NPL1:1 CFC Arsenal U13 Girls Sky1:2 CFC Arsenal U13 Girls Sky
MF NPL0:0 PDA North3:1 PDA Southand I think MF NPL gets PDA North this weekend to prove the 0:0 draw is not the norm.
2:52Because a team plays better or worst against a certain opponent, doesn't mean the team is not that good. Many factors are going into the performances of these teams. ie.... Different line ups, maneuvering players and certain strategies. A 0-0 tie and a 1-0 loss due to a pk means there is a lack of offense. NJX seems to be playing good defense but are lacking the offensive fire power.
2:08a) It says that is a very good U12 teamandb) seeing how well TSF and STA are playing, I think it says teams that are foregoing indoor COMPETITION in the winter may be behind the 8-ball come springpeace
That was no U12 team at Indoor State Cup, that was a very competitive U13 team, with great talent from top teams and probably the best goalie in the region.
3:05 again why can't the other teams do the same thing as MF NPL?I Will us PDA North as my exampleMFNPL and PDA North both beat PDA SouthPDA North Tied and lost to CFC ArsenalMF NPL lost to CFC ArsenalMF NPL is +40 goals with 3 games played more than PDA North who is at +32 vs the same league teams.When they played each other they tied. I couldn't say which team is better by this body of work not sure how you can. Does MF have a better def and goalies? it looks that way does PDA North have a better offense? It looks that way. So I am not sure how one can say MF has more talent when you still have PDA South and PDA Shore (Jefferson Cup Champions) to pull from? Sell me
2;522:37 here.Your perspective is at 1000 feet. You are looking at how well the teams are doing. i am looking at the individual players.And it appears that match fit if you include the NPL team has more quality. But it still may not be enough.
Doesnt the goal differential just scream "this is a ridiculously weak league!"?Nothing they could do about it - just saying......
How do you know which CFC you are playing?
All you ridiculous parents talking about who is better, who has won more, and against who, its all completely worthless, if you continue to play the same old style of soccer. The boot the ball, and chase it into the corner and hope the defender falls down theory of youth soccer. Its for losers, even if your are winning games now, its short-sighted and expected. You please continue to think that your child is learning soccer the correct way, keep telling your friends she plays for _____ or ______, its all utterly a waste of time.
