The writing is on the wall. All girls will be playing for either PDA or Match Fit. There will be no other clubs in NJ and each club will have 25 teams. The Masters of the Universe at PDA and Match Fit will manage all the girls for development and move them up and down across 25 teams. 1 week, your daughter will be playing ECNL. If she is a forward and doesn't score in that game - she will be demoted to the Y team and playing MOSA. If she does score - she will get to stay on the ECNL team until she doesn't. Once she is demoted, she will have to work her way through all 24 other teams before she gets to ECNL. But while she is playing MOSA, you will still get to pay full PDA/Match Fit freight. It will be great for all of the girls. And we parents will all be proud to say "My kid plays for PDA/Match Fit". Can't wait!
Signed? Signed what? Maybe got accepted into college is more like it. So according to you all of the ecnl and npl players are all offered soccer scholarships and were recruited to play soccer. If that is the case then how many ecnl and npl players are in nj? Please clarify what you mean by they all signed?
Is having your daughter play for a D1 school you're only definition of success? If she doesn't make it onto a D1 roster will you consider this entire soccer experience a failure?
Most get more money for academics. But good for themThe story is that top youth soccer teams in the area are sending their entire rosters to college.This is a great thing - indicative that having our girls pursue this endeavor has some wisdom to it (not that many wouldnt get the same $$ without soccer)Quibbling over the power of a certain team or two based on the list of collegiate attendees and how much soccer did/did not play into their matriculation is just silly.
I have one question - if you put 20 girls on the field at an ID camp and 1 has MF jersey or a PDA jersey. Before they even start to play who do you think got on the radar before they even touched the ball? That can work both ways - Of course after they start playing it's the best player that gets the prize.All I'm saying is you have the BRAND and all those kids can do the technical training with their eyes closed. Goes a long way. Maybe I'm wrong. But that's my opinion.ECNL just replaced ODP as the magical letters that's all - It's just a feather in the cap - not the end all be all. That's up to the kids to perform under pressure and not freeze up when it counts.
Well that makes no sense. If you play in that amazing ecnl for the amazing PDA or match fit, why on earth would you need to be at a ID camp? And have to wear your match fit or PDA shirt.
My daughter goes to a national team training camp and one of the things they require is that the girls do not wear team logo shirts. I guess they care very little about the magical letters.
College ID camp not NT cam -sorry my kid is not at that level but she can play college ball for sure and nothing stops you from having your club shirts.
My point is wouldn't that help? -you do have to put those letters down when you apply. So you are telling me it wouldn't make a difference to get noticed? After that it's all on the kid and what they bring to the table.Seriously - your kid goes to an ID camp in NC - you don't think a MF/PDA shirt gets them noticed before they start playing?
At NT Training the coaches have a clipboard with the girls names and what club they are from. They need to know what club she is from because if the club sends sub par players they will not be asked again. This is a terrible way to do it but some clubs will send girls that are well liked not necessarily the best.

What if you just go up and play and deal with the 26 player rosters and the driving up and down GS parkway and rt 287 in rush hour 2 or 3 times per week for 1 year?Then you go back to a more nearby club where you can dress and play every game and not drive 2 hours each way in traffic, then just wear the old pda or mf shirt when you go to the College ID or NT camp?

I think you guys missed my point.I never said the MF or PDA t-shirt will get them in.All I said was the brand will get them noticed out of a crowd more than a STA or NJ Wildcat t-shirt will. Now that can work for them if they have skill or they can quickly get dismissed if they arenot up to the standard the college coaches look for. I'm sure if they were interested they would ask what team and coach they play for.I would imagine if your kid made it to National CampWhat club your kid plays for means nothing. Unless they see a player that clearly doesn't belong and they want to punish the club for not being able to evaluate talent for the NT level of play.
Okay if MF and PDA hits to close to home I am also willing to bet that a kid with a FC Bucks, PF or CFC Delco t-shirt will get noticed first before a PL t-shirt at a college ID camp in NC. Once they start playing it won't matter what club your from all that matters is if you can ball. Are you guys telling me this is not reality and I'm just drinking the ECNL cool aide?
It is fact that the kid with the PDA or MF or any other ECNL shirt for that matter is going to get a little longer look. Doesn't mean that the kid without that will or can not make it but it's harder. Plus, in about 2-3 years those ECNL kids will have already been identified from league or tournament play whereas the others will not. It's just reality, nothing wrong with it.
Correct me if I am wrong. Based on reading some of these posts, girls and teams that are not in ECNL really should not think about playing college soccer. So those girls not at PDA or MF should not consider or even have a chance at a D1 school?Talk about drinking the Kool Aid. Yes I do agree that if your daughter can play (not sit) on an ECNL team that is great and probably is talented, but there are only 18 (probably 13) girls on that team that are seeing playing time. It is too early to talk about these girls playing college soccer. They are still 3 years away from any coach looking at them. A lot can happen in that time. But your going to tell me college coaches will not look at girls from club teams, or non PDA / MF clubs?
You are correct in some regards 6:53. Some clubs make the mistake of sending a well liked player to a NT camp, or they will send players to make the parents think that they are getting their daughter looks that other clubs wouldn't. Mainly just to insure the check keeps coming. But the NT coaches send these players packing after one trial and then it also makes them aware of that club and what they are doing. Then the NT coaches start to automatically be skeptical of who they are sending. It a horrible policy for a club to partake in. Anyone has been to these practices knows it is extremely tough for the U13's that are grouped with the U14's. Very fast with great skill set, and you only get one, maybe two chances to show you can hang. And they don't tell you your cut, they just don't send you the time and location of the next practice.
I agree 9:4710:02 no one is saying that but you. I said and you can read the post again "Once they start playing it won't matter what club" but they will stick out in a group BEFORE they start playing.10:28 I agree and that's how it should be.
Another disaster weekend for jCUP. Looks like pda spring kickoff will be the best bet going forward. I don't understnd why storm isn't playing and why other teams that play at jCUP and Manhattan wouldn't play at pda instead? I think it also hurts teams when they want to get into the real pda showcase events at u14. Why would they accept you later if you never supported them at younger ages. What do I know, I'm just glad we are playing in it.
I think some local clubs are worried about losing players to pda. They will send their b teams if they have them, because it's easier for the club and coach to go local and not worried about losing anyone that matters.
Any idea when GS will update for Jeff Cup results, its been a week already, and I am getting anxious. P.S. and yes, my life depends on it.
Also, the tournament director has pissed off coaches of teams early on (U8-10), because they typically set up PDA vs easy teams, and in some cases did not accept teams that they were nervous about.
Anyone know when the schedules will be released for the PDA event?
I believe they change directors every year, but I'm sure every coach at every age group gets involved in making their age group brackets. I know I would and use to my advantage and I'm sure you would as well. They will be very selective at showcase event next year and put teams they don't like in brackets and feilds that college coaches don't want to travel to. I'm sure most of our teams in nj won't be invited, especially if they read this blog. They will have to invite MF and WCFC because of ecnl.
MF had a few Copa girls at practice wednesday night. It looked like they were the girls from East Brunswick.
I'm sure Pda and wc has girls coming all the timeTime is running out , get harder every year.
Not if you are a great player with a check book.
So the 3 magic beans time is running out. Everyone is breathing down their necks
1:09 PM - were they any good? did they injure any of the MF girls?
Copa girls at Match Fit - curious - up North or down at Raritan?If MF is really going to take control of this age group, I think where they are sending girls to "work" would say a lot as I am certain that the DC is not up at Jefferson... and he does coach the U-13 team out of Raritan.
What year is best to make a switch to ECNL? Can a player wait til U15 or is by U14 recommended? Also when will the names of any new clubs accepted into ECNL be released?
MFHolmdel will not take on any new players for next year because it threatens current players who are exposed as it is already. This team will remain as is or will fold if the better players decide to go elsewhere but there will be no significant roster changes.
Mike Oneal camps are filling up lately. This is where you see most of e girls trying out. does WC and MF coach have similar camps.
1:37 They were at Raritan.1:42Of course they will take girls right now as they only have 14 girls on the squad.
1:37If it is a direct merge of the 2 top Match Fit teams, then by talent alone they will be best in NJOf course PDA will be scrambling to add the best current non ECNL talent.Should be interesting
Top talent on NJX/MF who are willing to travel up north will be on ECNL team in fall. Those who don't want to travel will be on PDA or Wildcats. I do not see the current girls staying together. They may have a team but with a different group of girls.
Yes. It's called the Holmdel Galaxy.
If you are not part of this program then why do you really care?????? The combined U14 team will be one solid team. They will make it work as far as where to practice. Again, if you are not on the team, why care?
The Galaxy are a decent team. I think they will be smart and keep them under the NJX umbrella and not the MF one.
I don't see NJX girls going to PDA or Wildcats.
MF will only have ECNL and NPL teams. Rest will stay under Holmdel/NJX.....
Some girls will absolutely go to PDA or Wildcats, why wouldn't they?
Why would they take them?
MF will make exceptions for the select few down south as they always do and have since njx. They will practice down south and play with the north. They are allowed to play and guest and train where ever they want even though the rules state otherwise and they enforce it for other players
If matchfit ECNL plays in the North, they will get the spillover from PDA.
According to the website, Matchfit ECNL/NENPLl tryouts are in Raritan, and "matchfit academy NE NPL north" tryouts are at morris catholic and north facility - all caps at top of this page states "Match Fit Academy will field U13-U18 North East NPL NORTH teams for the 2015/16 season. This is in addition to our U13-U18 NE NPL teams out of Raritan HS. - take that as you will.
There is no PDA spillover....Only thing that would make a PDA player go to MF is if the coaching was suddenly substandard
MF still training three teams with one trainer at the same time. Great ratio for training 45-1. Great ratio for your $10000 also. But all of the U18 signed. Lol
I the NFL, it is well known that when a coach says he has two #1 quarterbacks, he in fact has none.
MF North has 1 coach per 14-16 playersAt times 2 coaches at MF North practice for 14-16 players. there may be an insistence that one coach coaches 2 teams due to a game. this rarely happens.Do not have MF South practice informationInformation above not the case at all
ecnl team is going south
Dream ON, no way MF will that team dissolve. NJX wishful thinking
3 Magic Beans.Still in denial to the bitter end.
The u18 all came in as freshman. They didn't develop a single one.
1:39My opinion is that U15 is fine. U14 no one is scouting yet.
3 Magic Beans guy. You keep mentioning magic beans. What is your issue with this saying? You sound like a bitter little boy whose daughter couldn't handle the pressure. Your saying is getting old and worn out now.
Anybody know the champions league schedule for this weekend? Did not see it on the website.
One challenge with the teams aplenty approach of the academy is that with several if not all of the teams in one age group, there is no "there" there. At the player and parent level it's several large question marks. Am I on this team or that team? Are we "us" or are we the affiliate of the mother ship? Am I valued for me as a player or me as a fee? (Remember, I'm only 13) Are our better players with us or the other team in the stable? Do our better players stay with us on tournament weekends or are they off and about with the other side? What "price" am I paying for being a fringe player on this team as opposed to being a fixture on another team? Do I really need all of this travel? What are the qualifications and intentions of the people who are managing the process? And maybe most important...If the people running the process are legitimate, would they tell me if I were better suited elsewhere or would they stay mum whilst my money continues to flow in?
8:18, seems like you are having doubts? Your questions, and scenarios are a perfect reason to chose a club with only 1 team per age group. If your daughter is talented, and committed, she will win a roster spot, and be a valuable member of the team. You, as a family, will not worry about promotion, or demotion from A, B or C teams. She could concentrate on playing the sport that she loves, and you can enjoying watching her grow-up. Good luck to you.
You speak of promotion and demotion as if there is really a plan for that. In legitimate academies such things happen. In reality, the first objective is to keep as many cash cows alive. There is very little promotion or demotion but rather a milking of the parent's wallet. Look for yourself. How much promotion and demotion really occurs? Objective 1: Keep many teams alive. Objective 2: "Borrow" players for big events leaving the roster remainder behind to wonder. Objective 3: See objective 1.
8:18 and 9:11 Amen-But they will attack you for they are desperate to keep those on the fringe who will never be a core player on the A Team from the truth. As long as they keep them dreaming of a core spot on the A Team they can keep the $$$ flowing.
Well said 8:18 and 9:11.Somewhere a long the line youth soccer got confused with the pressure of professional and or college sports.And our girls are paying the price emotionally
Dude, I speak of it because I am desperate to give them some sense of legitimacy! That is the concept for having multiple teams. Do the parents on the WC Hamm think their child deserves to be on the Charlton team, yeah. Do the parents on Ajax and Dragons think their daughter should be on the Storm team, yeah. Do the parents on Crush Tsunami White think their child should play for Tsunami, well maybe.
The emotional damage may not become evident until after the youth soccer days are over.You may find your relationship with your daughter irreparably affected as she matures and resents you not protecting her emotionally as is your responsibility as a parent.Look in the mirror and ask yourself if it is really about her or feeding your own ego. Are you a wannabe or never was athlete trying to live vicariously through your daughter?Are you feeding her to the wolves to accomplish this?
Why isn't CRUSh a team playing at PDA? You guys love these tournamanets, is it to close?
Do you do all of the politically correct things to advance your daughter and the proper sucking up to keep her on the top team. Say become coach manager or sell out.
Who is coaching the PDA ECNL ?Who is coaching the MF ECNL?If changes in coaching from who they have now would be a factor in where to go.
There are lots of teams that will be going through quite bit of change in coming months. Stability & a track record of success will thrive. That is why some teams will thrive & pick up some very good talent to supplement their current team & others are going to fall by the wayside. Happens often & this age group will be no different. Just watch...
You were doing great 10:14, right up to where you started talking about emotional damage and relationship damage. I am sure the dad is busting his ass to not only pay for everything his daughter is doing, but also spending a ton of time with his daughter while she is doing it. Even if he is living his dreams through her abilities, when she is older all she will remember is how much time she spent with her dad. And by then she will be mature enough to realize that, yes some of it was for his own needs, but he was there cheering her on. Emotional damage comes from showing your child their not good enough to spend time with or screaming at them, telling them they just are not good enough to meet dads standards.
00-03 Northeast Regional combine today out in Millersville PA. Girls chosen from US training centers. Good luck to those girls!
11:18 you completely missed my point.I was talking about those dads who keep their daughters on teams where they don't get regular rostered or decent playing time rather than move them to an appropriate level where they can actually thrive and have a integral role and gain confidence and when the time comes show themselves and what they can do, rather than keep them on a team where they are constantly demoralized because of your ego in needing to say she plays for so and so.
You guys talk about the B and C teams like they are a joke and just a cash cow. PDA's B and c teams and MF' B teams are considered in the top 5 or 6 in NJ. Where would you have them go? Remember, girls who were great players 2 years ago aren't necessarily the best now. There will be a lot of movement on these teams over the next couple of years which there should be. Teams that stay stagnant will eventually fall behind.
I get what your saying 11:24, and your correct in exactly how you said it in this post. What you are saying here basically happens on every team. The girls that are just making it are often an emotional wreck as tryouts roll around (and so are the parents). But I just don't think the girl blame their parents who are offering them the chance to succeed at that level. Unless of course you have the over the top parent screaming and yelling. Is it much different than a parent asking a kid to try a higher math class in high school, and then when the kid cannot keep up, they move her back to where she is more comfortable? Although you are right, some parents never realize that their daughter may not be gifted in the arena that the parents wish them to perform.
Considered by who 12:05? By MF and PDA coaches, management and parents? I'm not even a NJ parent and I think that a really stupid statement, made by someone that has a daughter on a PDA or MF B or C team. We play against many Jersey teams and seem many more play, trust me when I say that your PDA and MF B teams are just that. Step away from the kool aid jar sir. You need to save a little for the other parents that the coaches have convinced.
9:31 As "B" team parent I don't think many parents think their daughter "should" be on the "A" team, I just think most see very little difference between the starters on B team roster and the bottom half of the A team roster. And the only real difference between the two teams being the 2-4 elite difference makers on the A roster and the rest being essentially interchangeable.
I don’t think this is the case in PA – but for a second let’s forget Ajax, Dragons, Shore, NJX and MF Black did not belong to PDA and MF are you telling me these would be considered bad options? Or would they be equal to STA, NJ Crush & NJ Wildcats in regards to level of play? These are your best 3 Teams in NJ that don’t belong to PDA or MF. These kids have the same opportunities to move up to Storm and MF ECNL as players on NJ Crush, STA & NJ Wildcats if they fit the style of play the coach wants to see.If you remove NJ Wildcats, STA, NJ Crush, Ajax, Dragons, Shore, NJX and Black from the equation how many players can crack the Storm/MF ECNL top 18? My guess would be not many.PA guys, would you still consider 1776, YMS & Rage second teams if they were PF teams? Or would they have the same opportunity PL has they just happen to play for a club that has many teams?10:41 why would you think that? If your kid fits the style of play they would be considered, them not making it doesn’t mean anything more than the coach didn’t think she was ready. If you had a different coach maybe she would move up – come on people with all this drama. If you were the coach the roster would be filled with players you thought can play does that make them the best – in your opinion yes.11:18 BRAVO!!!!!!!11:24 what if the kid came from a team where they played a ton and was the rock star and now plays for a team where she isn’t the rock star and doesn’t play as much – but has improved a bunch in a shorter period of time, what then? Is it better to play more or is it better to improve? Every child is different in what drives them.
Yes MF and PDA B and C teams are just that, B and C teams.Just look at the results last week vs other B And C teams in B and C flights.
2:09 keep selling.You are doing great.Maybe they will believe you that sitting out events and often not being rostered(because you are not competitive with the core players on that A Team) is what drives their kids.How about the parent is guilty of negligence if he or she leaves their daughter on a team where she is in that situation.
2:09 your right let's move on to ECNL talk. All this F1 tournament talk is boring me - let's talk about what really matters.Sat, March 21, 2015 East Meadow SC 01 U13 Pre-ECNL Match Fit Academy 01 U13 Pre-ECNL Albertson SC 01 U13 Pre-ECNLContinental FC 01 U13 Pre-ECNLSun, March 22, 2015 East Meadow SC 01 U13 Pre-ECNL Continental FC 01 U13 Pre-ECNL Albertson SC 01 U13 Pre-ECNLMatch Fit Academy 01 U13 Pre-ECNL
Not selling anything just giving my opinion.
E EgotisticalC CluelessN Naive L Lost Parents
PA parent here. That is a good question 2:09. Ajax did make to final in the F2 against WC, while the YMS and 1776 both went to the semi's, but in a lower flights. Classics won their bracket but did not make the finals either. So your point regarding what if they were just "B" and "C" teams of PF does hold water. As far as the difference between an "A" and "B" team just being a couple superior players on the "A" team, that is far from true. Most "A" have players that not only have a little more consistent speed at each position, but also more foot skill and soccer acumen. And one of the big differences is the "A" team carries the top keeper.

They are one of best teams, any feedback on game. Obviously close game.
So which PDA team is considered the top team according to PDA? Dragons, Storm or Ajax? Their website says that teams will be placed in the most competitive tournaments, but Storm was not at Jeff. I know their are stronger tournaments than Jeff, but it is a fairly strong tournament and I would be a little miffed about not being there if I was a Storm Parent. Would the Storm team have been in the top flight?Needing a clue
Jeff Cup points have been added to GS.
Is NJSA Galaxy coach out already?Honeymoon didn't last long.
Legacy getting points for being a "semi-finalist" is kind of a joke in regards to GS. Three teams with the same record and one is declared a semi-finalist. Shows how little GS points can viewed as a determining factor on who are the top teams. Not that teams in NJ would ever chase GS points. Just saying
Not really 10:07. They did come in 4th after all and PF, also a semi finalist, did get more points because they had a better record (despite a blowout). Looks fair to me.
Jeff cup really matters at 15, 16 and 17. Look what club is there across the board in those ages and all playing top bracket. The 11, 12, 13 and 14 would have all payed top brackets if they chose to go.

Thanks 10:18. But you didn't say who is the top team? Am I correct in assuming its the Storm? Basically I was wondering how much difference there is between the three clubs.
Penn Fusion at #9 in PA tells you what a joke GS is. They could play with nine players and beat four or five of the teams in front of them. Legacy does seem to be correct at the top, although they did lose to YMS last fall.
and then came back and beat them the very next time. (First time they were also down 3 starters). All teams have bad games.
PF dropped all their points from when they were winning....prior to U13. Haven't been winning and they really need to start or they won't go up in rankings. Good, solid team, but something has to get them going again. Maybe they'll grab some good players at tryouts this year.
Compare GS point leader to what is in my opinion the tip 10 teams in NJ:1 PDA Pre-ECNL a2 MF Pre-ECNL3 NJ Wildcats4 MF NPL5 PDA NPL South6 STA7 PDA NPL North8 NJ Crush9 TSF10 PDA Shore
Remember, no teams received any league points last fall in NPL pre-ECNL or NE NPL. Also skews the GS points.
I think PF has excellent players. Its seems more of a confidence thing in second half of games. Legacy and FCV hammered them and they have given two goal leads in the second half during ECNL play also. Their core group is still one of the best in PA, might just not have the supporting group needed.
11:29, I think the top 3 teams are interchangeable and so is your 4-7.
I agree about their core group being the strongest. But they need to add to that core. It's obviously not strong enough.
Who is new coach at NJSA Galaxy?
239.....Maybe related to getting shutout 3 times at Jeff Cup in one of the lower flights?
They had unrealistic expectations from the beginning this fall with this team.
They should limit gs points to only last 5 events or maybe penalize teams who chase points and rack up lots of zeros.
11:05 I'll play so GS is a joke because PF couldn't place in the events they played in and the others did? PAGS doesn't give points either.I agree GS is incomplete and who ever uses it as a "we have arrived" tool shows how much they are in the dark.Pre-ECNL and NPL flights of Northeast girls will only get points once sometime in May which is fine since it's a straight through league. However, NYCSL NPL and new England NPL are milking the system as they give Fall/Spring points to their straight through league. GS will never be the "one and only"tool since there are many ways to milk the system. EDP did it last year by giving their Fall points early before last season's point fell off - having Fall/Spring/Fall points awarded to all their teams inflating the NJ NCS tournament. Plus some parts of the country use different tools for their tournaments getting zero GS points

Clubs like crush and others abuse gs and use it heavily for recruiting. Although it's not working to well lately and when you review their pages, it tells an ugly story. It also give them false hope and backfires when put in top flights.
5:04. What the hell does all that mean? Did BYRC beat anyone at Jeff? Plus 1776 is one of the most up and down teams in any league. Your description of who beat who looks like a word search gone terribly wrong.

PS. i Never had the gift of the gab I'm more of a dancerBRYCLost1-2 vs Cincinnati0-1 vs PF2-2 vs CalvertWith 1776 beating BRYC I don't see much of a difference is level of play - teams look close to each other, AM I WRONG? BRYC played every team close at JEFF cup - so there is no reason for me to think 1776 can't at least get the same results as BRYC. Since 1776 also tied PL 2-2. Am I WRONG?Using this same logic MI Grand Rapids beat down 1776 4-1 and also beat down PA Classics 5-1 who beat 1776 2-1 - this tells me that the claim made by a poster putting Mi Grand Rapids as one of the top team is not that much of a stretch (PS. They were also Super Y runner-UP) so they played F3 I guess that makes them a bad team or JEFF Cup people got one wrong?
Didn't 1776 play MF npl in Bethesda and tie them. I also believe 1776 pretty much dominated and MF just about survived, just kicking the ball as far as they could from their own end
That's impossible. MF is the best

Every game at Jeff was close, except for Cincy and FCV blowing out two teams. Could have GR played in the top bracket? Maybe. But calling GR the best team at the tournament and claiming their better than FCV or Cincy. No way and not sure they would hold up against PF, PL or Tri State. Grand Rapids looked a lot like Legacy last year in the F2. Dominated everyone 11-0, but found the going a little tougher in F1 this year. Those F1 teams with a little more depth, takes away many those scoring chances that happen when playing F2 teams.
7:32 maybe -maybe not. I thought the claim was one of the better teams not the best team? Regardless they had a nice tournament to win their flight. back to NPL action.4 STA NPL-010 New York SC NPL-01WOW STA just turned the NYCSL NPL upside down.They now control their own destiny. As long as they don't overbook their schedule and have to forfeit another game they are the favorites to represent this NPL in Indiana. NYSC still very much alive needs some help now.

Good job STA! Way to represent NJ. Good win. Good job to all the teams who played this weekend under tough conditions
Good stuff 7:29. But what teams" scores are those? 13 Goals scored and 22 given up. Not the numbers that suggest a winning team.
9:53 that's 1776 a Region1 CL Division 1 team.

Interesting results from Region 1 league so far. PL ties G BINGHAMTONI thought PL was supose to be a top team. Where were all the All-Stars they have on that team for this game? 1776 over BRYCSurprising that BRYC would lose to 1776. Did BRYC have a Jeff Cup hang over? 1776 Made their final at Jeff Cup, so were they on a high? Are there girls from 1776 that can go make PF,CFC or FC Bucks better?The in the NPL leagueEM over MFWasn't I just reading how good that MF team was? I know EM is a good team too but I thought I read they were having internal problems? I guess not enough to lose to MFEM over CFCnot a surprise but do girls from 1776 go to this team and make them better? Do you as a parent want to go to a team that loses games 6-1? CFC has only scored 4 goals and gave up 38 goals. Can a few girls really make a difference on this team? MF over AlbertsonAlbertson is a hard team to get a handle on. Don't forget they beat the mighty PDA team 1-0 earlier this month. Then lose to WC and MF.
There was USYS National League girls playing in Las Veags this past weekend. How do teams make that tourney? Do you have to win a league like the Region 1 league? I ask because I saw for u14 there a South Shore Select team there? Or do you just get invited to play in it?
um... every now and then good teams lose, especially when playing other good teams. so not sure what your point is. Is your expectation that every good team must go undefeated and win every tournament they enter? We have played both MF and East Meadow so I can tell you that both teams are very good and I'm sure it was a great battle between the two.
State cup ? STA and CRUSH looks like a great game on on right side of bracket, CRUSH needs a break and win to stay relevant. I think wildcats take it all.
00-03 Northeast Regional combine today out in Millersville PA. Girls chosen from US training centers. Good luck to those girls!March 21, 2015 at 11:20 AMHow was this? Heard the level was a bit disappointing. Top few then a drop off
I would say Crush needs to take care of TSF first before they play STA.
Can my daughters team get a do-over from yesterday? You know, just between us guys, a little pretend that it did not happen moment. Is that a yes?Thanks y’all.
I think Storm will win the State Cup.
From what I heard 12:28, some chosen from PA were head scratching choices. Politics involved?
After reading the post on EM vs MF. You have to look further into this. 2 Great teams going after each other. A 2-1 victory to me sounds like a great game.Internal issues, only way there are internal issues are within the NPL. I leave near these people. All I hear is my kid will be on the ECNL team, Our team is this and that. Reality is your team will struggle vs ECNL teams.NO I AM NOT FROM WILDCATS
1:18"Politics involved?"Of course!!!!Will never get the best girls because of it.
njcsa new coach is younger brother of old coach. Yes, embarrassed in Jefferson, did not score one goal. Basically for the old coach my good friend, wise words to live by "what comes around, goes around" "don't burn your bridges" He has burned many.......
Old NJ Force coach taking over girls program at NJCSA. Old Galaxy Coach is already out.
RE: NJCSA galaxy - younger brother just as bad as the older brother... if you do your research you will see they have been kicked out of multiple clubs in the past... Good trainers, HORRIBLE coaches!
They probably should be coaching boys.
So which ex-force coach is coming in?
Where are all the All-Stars on PL 10:31? Running their ass off playing a very physical game against GB. Lots of clutching and grabbing and girls being run over on both sides. PL is finding its way and not playing its best, but in four games its only loss is a 1-0 to FCV. Tough to judge any team right now with how little everyone has played outside. Some of them are wildly inconsistent.
So is GB a dirty team, as was alledged a weeks back?
Wait? The ties are good now? :)
Re: NPL FinalsMore than one team from a division can be invited
6:37, what is that in reference to? Who is going to do the inviting, and from which NPL league?
Look it up. Non champs can be invited "to finish the field"
GB is a really, really physical team and there were a couple of borderline plays where they ran the keeper a couple times. But you can't fault the players for doing as their coach instructs. And to 6:10 parent that hates Legacy. Ties absolutely suck!!!! I would rather drive across Jersey with you than sit through a tie (that should give you and ideal). I stated that most teams are fairly inconsistent early in the season, especially when practice outside has been nonexistent. I do believe we all have seen some scores that surprised everyone early. Hard to believe your a Wildcat parent, when we played the Wildcats the parents I talked with were cordial and respectful. Where you not there at Jeff?
6::10 not a wildcats parent.He hates on the wildcats when they tie as well.
If you're looking for PL haters on this board, you might want to start the search alittle closer to home.
So he's just wishing he was a Wildcat parent? I can somewhat understand that. I was kind of harsh with my reply, especially since he did put a smiley face at the end of his post.
True 8:27. But that is common with all teams close to each other as familiarity breed contempt. But most do get along quite well, since many of the girls from five or six teams play indoor and summer tournaments together and the parents get to know each other. I sure its the same with the NJ players and parents. I'm sure that even you like somebody.....maybe.....anybody...God maybe.

9:21 -If girls play indoor and summer tourneys together, why wouldn't they all join the same club? If everyone gets along, as you state, wouldn't it make sense to play together the whole year? I am not sure it is a love fest in other areas during the winter and summer months.
7:24 I'm not 9:21 - just because they play together in summer and winter doesn't mean they are the same level or pay the same tuition - they just happen to have the same interest and their teams don't play as much during those months a perfect match.But I agree with you if all at the same level why not play together all year long for the same team?
Or you can do real family vacation, lacrosse, basketball.
Regarding 1776 and any defection to CFC/FC Bucks, sometimes the sum of the whole really is greater than the parts. If one or two of these players was added to a bad team like CFC, of course they'd immediately become better, but likely still not competitive against the rest of the ECNL. So would parents leave a strong team like 1776 just to say they play for an ECNL team, albeit the worst one? I wouldn't. R1 Premier League isn't ECNL, but it's not a garbage league either. Team-based leagues always have the chance to provide a better overall level of competition compared to club-based leagues, where some of the teams in a particular age group may just be weak, as is the case with CFC. And the promotion and relegation over the next year or two will correct any errors in the original assignment of teams within the league.
Its really about the trainingAfter that - the comfort level your daughter feels with her team.Wins/losses? Just have to win enough, not all the time.
Whatever sources are being used for the Galaxy coach posts might want to re-check their sources for more accurate information.
11:30am then please enlighten us!
I am sure an organization of that stature will have a very qualified individual in place to train those teams.Is the trainer names not everyone's cup pf soup? Well, its a two way street. Sometimes parents look for trouble that isnt there, cant accept things, always thinking grass is greener elsewhere
So are the helicopter parents at it again?
and ya know, sometimes it is greener. To each his own right?
Yes, just follow the bouncing ball.
@12:25Sorry don't know the source of the misinformation or I would enlighten you.
or stay in a bubble like you right?
Good training in the bubble
What is the bubble?
Then by all means stay in your happy bubble. Not everyone has the same expectations or standards. It's when you judge others decisions that make you ignorant.
The judging is because the decision changes every ~250 days. Quite the path taken to find the magic beans :).
Only if that made any sense
Are we getting a new coach?In the middle of the year, after 1 tournament?First I heard of it.
Which club is this discussion about?
@ 3:06It was posted multiple times so it must be true.
When has it ever mattered what club someone is talking about? As long as there is some club parent willing to step up and put his daughters club out there and walk into the whirling machetes. Nothing like a good club beat down for 10 or 15 posts and then onto the next victim. This is such a great blog! Just a little less compassion than than the Spanish Inquisition, but with better results
It must be true, I saw it 'on the line'
The fact that this blog excited you so is truly sad and pathetic. I'm sorry for you.
Mostly negative because:1. Negative "sell"s2. Most clubs and academies over promise and under deliver.3. Most parents who have to deal with parent coaches are afraid to speak directly to the offending coach.
I consider myself an expert on all things soccer, my credentials are private, don’t bother asking. And as a self-accreditted soccer-expert, I most truly believe that my daughters team, is better than the various Teams we have lost to. It simple, as I watch the games I look for professional tendencies that convince me that even though we may lose, we are still the better team. Now that is progress, are we agreed?
If you don't like the blog 4:19, why do you read it? If you can't tell I was being over the top on purpose in the previous post, then I feel sorry for you and psssst, hey buddy I have these genuine Rolex watches for sale. Its okay, its not always easy to see the damn forest through those frigging trees. I was being critical of the negativity ya noodle head.
Noodle head? How old are you? My youngest kid who is 6 would call someone that. Reading the blog is one thing. Sometimes it's informative. Youre just an embarrassment which is why its a good thing for your kid this is anonymous.
That is the level (youth) I assigned to you for having for been so naive to an obvious post. Isn't it funny how you picked up on the "noodle head" statement? Yep, that's where your at. I would use bigger more adult words but it would be over your head. Now enough quibbling between obvious friends that are both incorrigible and won't give in. Get back to soccer. Your always so critical on this blog.
Pretty confident my IQ is a fair amount higher than you buddy. No worries here. I concentrated on the name because for a second I thought I was on the SpongeBob Blog.
You must be a real joy around the household. Constantly telling your 3rd wife how smart you are and making sure your daughter only watches CNN. Thank goodness she has soccer to get away from her drill instructor of a dad. I am almost picturing the bad hair or none at all, intense stare behind those slightly thicker than normal glasses. Relax Einstein, just stick to soccer and what little you know of it. Your better in that area. I'm done if you are. Wildcat, Match Fit, PDA? Somebody talk to Bill Nye about soccer and be nice to him.
5:24. Why are you always so angry on this blog? Is your daughter on a "B" or "C" team and you feel its not fair? There is nothing wrong with her being on a lower level team and working her way up. Some of the best players at U16 and U17 were not always the best ones or on the best teams as U13's. Enjoy watching your daughter play and cheer her on. Congrats on your daughter playing a great sport!
If you guys would learn to keep this blog more like a radio news channel with no emotion, 5:24 wouldn't seem so angry. Straight reports from games and teams with no comments on anything else. Bloggers may comment on upcoming games and tournaments, but absolutely no random predictions.
This sport sucks
I am moving over to the U13 Cricket blog. They are much nicer there. Anyone want to join me.
The sport is great and this blog is often a good exchange, even if it can get a little nasty on occasion. Some people do really get angry once in a while, but its all good. I did hear there was a little more activity on the Sponge Bob blog.
Yeah. Squidward can be polarizing......Some big games this weekend...
9:14, sorry you are wrong, no big games this weekend, since my daughters team is not playing.So, there you go, carry-on.
Let's rephrase. All of the top teams are playing this weekend
Again, incorrect. Top team is an irrelevant term at this age group, these are developmental years, not competitive years, u15 and up is where the chase begins, the prize is up to each individual family.You sound like a immature cheerleader, grow-up.
Rec soccer starts in April. Let's go Mosa and Jags
I have asked this before, but got no response. Can someone in the know, please tell em when the schedules will be released for the PDA Spring Kick-off?I just need to schedule things, can someone help?
10:33, I hope you are serious. I am really tired of only reading about 5 clubs on this blog. It is a U13 Girls Soccer blog, not just a PDA,MF,Wildcats, and anyone bashing MFNJX blog. Why don't we hear more about the next level teams?
Because they don't care enough to be on this blog. If they did they would already be at PDA,MF,Wildcats, or MFNJX
