U16 (2002) Girls Youth Soccer

U16 young women players are not playing for fun, they are playing to win.

Best to step aside, because they are about to barrel through...

3:55 There is no U18 age in the ECNL. SO the clubs that have a deep Senior player pool will have 2 ECNL teams. Didn't know PDA was adding a 3rd. At least that will even out the teams from 13 to 14.

3:57 I don't think Arlington is Full, just younger ages.

4:06 Didn't know that.

There will be 2 ECNL teams at PDA North. Also in other ECNL founder clubs that left GDA - Eclipse, Hawks, Stars.

Moreover, PDA South parents reported in a different forum that they were also promised ECNL - right after the rumor of SJEB getting GDA surfaced. So it would be a crazy thing if PDA would just happen to add 2 ECNL teams in NJ after blocking applications from other teams for so many years.

ECNL is the new EDP

Says the fail Cedar Stars parent. PDA South will NOT be ECNL in 2019, but rumor has it will be in 2020.

PDA North will have 2 ECNL teams for 2018-19.
PDA South will have ECNL FOR 2019-20 season.

SJEB Rush was granted DA for girls in the up coming year. Not sure what is going to happen if noone is interested. Are they going to be forced to play?

Anonymous said...

Maybe a bunch of PDA South kids will be motivated to join SJEB.

Not sure why people praise HS ball game. Play quality is good only if you are lucky to be in a large enough school district with rich people.

Based on my daughter’s results it has negative impact on academics as well - a full grade lower for classes at the end of the day when kids are pulled out to play a game - compared to spring. Injuries pile up without any rest as well.

Team spirit is very good. And in general club players get positive social status on the field and in school.

Anonymous said...

SJEB/Rush won't force them to play. DA already understands at this point 03,02,01 teams are already involved with HS soccer. The 05 and 06 teams will most likely be the DA for SJEB/Rush for this upcoming year. Any "03,02,01 players who show up for their ID session tonight and next week will be considered candidates for the DA program only. At this point any players who can play at a high level already are content with their present team. I would assume VERY light turnout for the ID sessions. No PDA players from the south team will be attending. But, if you were among one of the 200+ people who attended the PDA Ajax and SJEB/Rush game this past Sunday, a combination of those two teams would be scary. Truly great soccer was played on both sides. Game was 0-0 in reg, double OT, and 7-6 in PKs going to PDA.

Weird that the 2002/2003 GDA coach is the same as current 2002 coach, right?

Anonymous said...

Two things will dictate where kids end up. One is whether or not they want to give up ALL hs sports. Two is whether ECNL or the DA wins out with College Coaches. One would imagine the better all around athletes will end up at PDA South. The second factor is still working itself out... coaches are everywhere.
Final note: Kids and parents prefer ECNL but the DA is being force fed to all.

So the country club is finally opening their doors to soccer low-lifes, how sad for you 6:11, so sad that your grip on the top league has vanished, so sad, I really feel bad, perhaps LAX is more your speed, its a little less physical, like you.

PDA parent here.

We had lots of coaches at both Florida and NC events, including coaches that were not even registered on the list. Each game had at least 40 (rain) and 80+ on a good day. Top D1 and Ivy coaches. Caveat is, we played very good competition. Some of our friends were not top billing and told us of 10-30 coaches per game.

Anonymous said...

It would be interesting if PSA or Stallions got GDA in North Jersey.

Both have facilities (does waldwick count?) and certainly a track of assembling high performance teams at a national stage.

Hey Match Fit dad,

World Class overall record is 35 - 55- 25.

Its under 500.. yes- overall for a club that is dealing with DA in their backyard. I am actually surprised of their record, much better than I would have guessed in beginning of year.

Your U16 team still not able to compete with their U16 team.

Group A has some very top teams including WC. I would like to see how that Group pans out

Not wasting my time with all the other clubs.

Anonymous said...

Who cares about the club. The club didn't get those kids committed. Bottom line is the WC team is better than MF and PDA 02's. I couldn't even tell you how the other age groups are doing at WC. Means nothing to my kid. Find something better than overall club record tongobat JE's team. Glad you were all left behind

Anonymous said...

Yes, WCFC has been a victim of GDA- flight, except the 02 ECNL team, heard only 2-3 left for GDA from that team. The other age groups are poor, no way around that, look for this to continue.

Anonymous said...

World Class younger teams will be fine. 06s are very good, 05s are very good plus the obvious of 02s. Will need work in other age groups tho.

With many of the clubs heading back to ECNL, the league will be much tougher. Teams like Match Fit benefited last year, will have a harder time this coming year.

Match Fit only qualified for Nationals for 04s and 03s, the 2 age group's that ended up being the hardest hit by DA this year. Next year, should change in those age groups with players heading back to ECNL.

WC is gonna get crushed by PDA Blue next season are you kidding me!

MF 04 will be even better next year as they will be the current SDFC 04 team following their coach, correct?

Anonymous said...

Nobody is heading back to ECNL by choice, moronic parents are following their clubs, it’s not about listening to the families, it’s about not wanting oversight from USSF, that and why spend 10 months training when you can charge the same amount for 6...

Anonymous said...

Not buying it. If it was a money issue they would just charge more for the 10 months training...if it was soooo much better it would be worth it, no?

Anonymous said...

It depends on who you ask, no? The DA families that I know are happy with the training, who cares about game results, its completely irrelevant to being recruited. The ECNL clubs were compelled to not charge more, as that is counter to the entire concept. If they could of, they would of...and honestly don't give a crap if you don’t buy it, as you sound like the douche who is always on here bashing GDA, probably the WCFC fat-ass, that walks around pretending to be important, but all you are is fat.

Anonymous said...

Actually I am a DA parent, I left to go back to ECNL. Personally I felt the level of competition was very poor for an elite league. I also disagree with the 4 days a week of practices. Typically 2 practices a week were basically just kids killing time with meaningless drills.

As far of kids not leaving for ECNL, is false. I know that many players that my daughter played against in early 2017 did head back to ECNL, with more not coming back next year.

Anonymous said...

High School is pretty much 4 days of practice and 2 games.

Which team did you leave?

Anonymous said...

Impossible, as there are NO fat DA parents, or you are asked to leave because of your disgusting obese self, either way, happy to be rid of you, enjoy Paramus HS soccer!

Anonymous said...

Believe what you like, but WCFC ECNL has a big problem, even with their younger teams, the better players are opting for DA. Those families can clearly see the difference at practice, and the quality of players being produced. Not sure how this is going to resolve itself, it’s a conflict for them, no doubt.

Anonymous said...

Believe what you want, NYCFC may not be in existence next year. I attended a session for my 2 daughters. 02/03 team did not have many players trying out. The 2006 team seems to not to have enough players for next year. Coach F is calling me continuously trying to sell me the world. From what I gathered, may only have 10 girls committed for next year. We are not looking to change to a DA format

Just heard that USSF is going to cover the additional costs, for hotel and airfare, for all teams that qualify or the quarter-finals. And they are also going to pay all expense for the 4 Finalists in July at GDA Finals in KC, Mo. Not sure about you, but that is pretty cool. My kid plays RL, so no personal interest, but ECNL should do the same, if not, not good.

from my understanding, ECNL does cover expenses for finals. Never made it to the final 4, not able to provide you more information

Nycfc 16/17 to quarters? Sure its possible. Do they play 8 groups like ECNL? Group winners to quarters?

Anonymous said...

Group winners to quarters.

Before anyone jumps for joy in this forum, please check the record of our local teams against seeds 9-16 at showcases. Remember, in groups stage teams from same division cant be in the same group.

So unless by some stroke of luck mid-atlantic plays against a northeast team - one of them is bound to go through. So let's wait until the draw. Maybe U16/17 PF also stands a chance. PDA lucky with 8th seed, but just too inconsistent losses to Spirit and Boston Breakers?)

In the meantime, the only bet I can place is on the U18-19 PDA team making in the quarters. The rest have inflated records based on sub-par division competition.

7:16 - or perhaps one team his very good. Best SJ players stay in the South. 4 DA's/ECNLs within 50 miles of each other up North = diluted pool.

PDA 16/17 will have it's YNT's back for the playoffs.
Wonder if US Soccer will have camps during their playoffs like they did during ECNL playoffs making kids have to choose.
Heard about some squads where some seniors are bailing out. Anyone else hear about that.

I just heard that more DA Clubs ( 8-10 ) are announcing they are leaving after the playoff concluded. You can say that this is about the money blah blah, this had to reflect the overall level of play for these clubs to be pulling out. Oh Man, I am part of the DA, this will cripple the league for years personally. Not good

Clubs I heard
Top Hat
Real Colorado
So Cal Blue
FC Dallas
Concorde
CrossFire Premier
West Coast FC
San Diego Surf
Eagles Soccer Club

Blah blah blah, exactly, it’s obviously less money for them, and too much oversight. Not surprised, in this country it’s not about quality, it’s about quantity. My daughters club is returning, but for us, it’s not for the best.

Anonymous said...

Who told you? It would be difficult to imagine as Most of the clubs listed have had tryouts for GDA teams. The clubs that left were all on the ECNL board/founding members.

Also nothing mentioned on the SOCal soccer forums which are typically legit.

OH stop already. At PDA the ECNL teams tie and beat the DA teams regularly. In each group at each age there are only like 3 good teams.

With adoption of DA one thing I never envisioned was sniping between members of the same CLUB over which team within the club was superior.

That's all.

Why would you compare American youth soccer to any other place? Is there any other place where families have to pay in excess of 5000 bucks for the privilege of wearing the "colors"? Corrupts the entire environment and is not analogous to other places.

Locally - perhaps it will be a better league, but nationally a much weaker league. Check RPI rankings of clubs that are leaving.

http://www.socalsoccer.com/threads/2017-2018-gda-club-standings.4188/page-8

Which begs the question. If ECNL is a 2-3 division league - why bother going across the continent to play play B- teams at a pay-to-play showcase event. It’s possible more teams will leave in the future, but next year may be the decider. Again following the logic that clubs presented to parents ‘we are leaving because the division is weak’ but now have to admit ‘division is strong but league is weak’. Total nonsense.

I’ve heard PDA is also offering all year program for those who don’t want to play HS. I wonder what’s the extra cost of that program.

Beliefs are for the folks that try to sell you snake oil.

There is evidence that best clubs in current GDA are remaining in GDA. (15 top 20 RPI)

There is evidence that more D1 college coaches are attending GDA events than ECNL events (lists are out on respective sites for last 2 showcases)

There is evidence that the GDA divisions around north/east are the weakest with teams that should not be there.

- there are still lots of clubs/teams outside of ECNL/GDA that could compete within either league
- there is no evidence that any of these organizations will cooperate

If 30-50 coaches are at your games during showcase events.. all is well. Regardless of the letters of your league. Why? - quality players are on the field. 02 kids need not worry about anything else. To compare the leagues if fruitless for these age groups.
