U15 Girls Youth Soccer

U15 young women players are not playing for fun, they are playing to win.

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

More times you see non ECNL players displacing ECNL players on ECNL rosters - not so much the jump from one ECNL to another

I will use STA and Crush players as examples - and understand those teams had players STAY that could have made the jump - in addition to those that did jump to ECNL for fall 2016.

11 35pm, last year 2 National players on U14 left MF. Now PDA picked up striker.

Anonymous said...

If you drive from the shore area past PDA to MF practice a few times a week soon it will enter your mind why drive an extra hour to MF.I would think if MF moved to Hazlet some people would have stayed.Both teams will still be strong.

Anonymous said...

For those that live in caves, MFA relocated ECNL teams from Hazlet/Denville to all Denville. In addition, the previous coach at this age left for WC. Of course, there will be change. I don't know the details but I understand quite a few kids stayed at the club and they have added some really talented kids at 01-03 from other clubs. We shall see.

6:25 - that's because the "who has the better Surf" teams (LI or Westchester) hasn't started yet. :)

Anonymous said...

No, you are right 10:26, the surf people are busy defending their brand from the SUSA, EM and ALBY fans. Seems like everyday some cynic has something negative to post, but the Surf infantry is very quick to counter, and try to shame, but that is hard to do on an Anon board. Not much about Surf being discussed here, because until they win, they are irrelevant. However, if the Surf teams to succeed, look to have many wonderful and moronic posts, enjoy your quiet-time.

P.S. Surf has not done a great job recruiting the best players in Westchester, but Suffolk branch might be competitive, good times ahead?

Boca lost 2 players to age and added 2 strong players. Plus seemed to stabilize and strengthen keeper position with an upgrade. PDA Shore merger of teams will make them stronger as well.

Pda 01 not nearly as strong as their 02 team next year. Bogus list.

Anonymous said...

Boca will always be a great team (good coaching and training), they had some issues lately, losing to Wall town team 3-1 and giving up many goals in recent play. Yes dad is well known of new keeper, but the keeper is certainly up to par. Pda shore I thought only sent one player to Boca? I think rest of pda shore stayed intact and moved to U16 01 birth year. Anyway, defense is the key and scoring many goals is the key, a keeper can only do so much depending on pk's, defense, so on and so forth. boca normally can score a few goals and defend well, so they should be ok. Beating Calvert and NYSC was a big coup for them in May. And again I have said before that parents, coaches and docs are crazy and a shame that kids get the brunt of that, give the new keeper a break and feel sorry for her. It is not her fault about her dad.

Surf could do well in the area but it's hard to break into a market chocked full of clubs.

Anonymous said...

That Foxsports Article just put a bigger dent in USYS, I'm sorry but you don't travel hours/miles for a fixed match even if it's just one game. With DA approaching, ECNL in it's glory right now followed by NPL. USYS should be a ashamed of this and should address it immediately. That National Championship has lost all credibility now and feel sorry for Syracuse Soccer Academy in our region.

Is this the same Boca team that lost to Warrington in spring EDP? What a powerhouse.

Anonymous said...

Boca keeper is new to area competition. Been playing up with the boys. Many teams with the dad is the one they upgraded from. When their keeper play is steady and strong, they compete well. When it's been inconsistent, they fall to teams like warrington. We'll see how it goes. Very unaffected by the birth year change.

8:54 I can tell you this about Surf. May take a year or 2 to become a great team but the club itself is head and shoulders above the alternatives In Suffolk County Long Island. The Long Island Surf is made up of mostly Atletico and Isa players as well as a few Albertsons. How they mesh on the field remains to be seen. They will def be competitive. Most of the Coaches they are hiring are college coaches with "A" certifications. If Surf can deliver half of what they are saying, we as parents will be ahead of the game. Choices are limited In Suffolk County. Glad Surf showed up. Now we just wait and see how it plays out. Have a feeling there will be alot more players at tryouts next season.

2001 MF added a few players from PDA Hornets, Stallions and NPL 14 team. PDA players could not crack top team, how would that be an improvement. Still rank them towards bottom but in top 10.

345 They do Supplemental training if you want to pay extra Semi-club prices. Actually leads to a pyramid to regional training by selection only then they offer select teams for tournaments or international play. To be honest it's like ODP without exposure. Still good training if your kid can get on the regional bandwagon but if your already playing with a competitive team and league then no need. At this age HS kicks in for many or have so doing to much sometimes can hurt.
Many of the top of the ladder ECNL clubs are against it.

I don't know exactly what you all are talking about with crush- don't know specifics of this tournament-but I do know that the club does not do tournaments or anything else to get points. They play the tough tournaments, in the highest flights they can get into for the experience, where often they could win or do better in lower level flights or lower level tournaments.

803, no sure what you are hinting at, but at some point they need to win, a lot, otherwise you will not get respect, and therefore less attention at showcase events coming this year. Trust me, I know all about playing soccer the right way, it simply does not equate into an undefeated team, it really doesn't. Best of luck!

I think the crush guy just got caught by blogging to much. And exposed the club using a summer select team and a regular npl team together. All good, no one cares anyway. Hope this is your year, long overdue. I think your 01 team will be in trouble, probably why coach moved on.

Anonymous said...

So I can see a very large increase $$ in clubs with DA. They will increase annual tuition on their clubs youth teams and non DA teams. Which to me hurts the development at the youth ages as many parents will skip out of travel soccer and stay among town level teams.

1208 agree the boys aren't doing that well sorry they don't even have a Olympic team that qualified. So there is proof in the pudding the boys DA is not working. I'm sorry I think the ECNL/NPL leagues are doing just fine and produced caliber in the US national pool and collegiately.

Anonymous said...

It seems unfair to me that every non-academy team at clubs that have academy teams have to subsidize the free academy teams. The girls side has done really well in developing players from many different clubs. I think that the academy system is too exclusive with only a few clubs allowed in.

How can you say the DA failed? it's been around 9 years and already has sent a few players to Europe to play for TOP clubs that we never sent before.

At the end of the day the DA hasn't failed it's the subjective views of the people that select the players that has failed. Just keeping it real

So the top Us DA players got to clubs in Europe? Seems like a successful DA program should want to keep their players here.

What's 500 more / yr / player... you pay 2500 now, you'd pay 3000. They will tell you it will help your kid chance of getting in the DA later on... One good thing is that town teams will probably get some more players. This could backfire and cause more people to realize their kid isn't elite and the carrot they were chasing is gone... The youth boys programs aren't nearly the money maker that the girls are...

The better the player the bigger the payday (transfer fees) and that's where MLS is now sell the talent to buy experienced older players to improve the quality of the game today which will improve the quality of the game going forward.

344 Yeah fluke that's a big laugh you keep thinking that. US is dominating or represent with medals in almost every sporting event in the Olympics and Men's soccer wasn't even there, That's an embarrassment to US Soccer program on the boys side. Once another 5-8 years go by and the men's side still hasn't done anything I'm sure someone will come in and change the layout again.

Here in the US we finds athletes to Swim, Box, Basketball, Golf, Fence, Run, etc. but still can't find enough players to put together a Men's soccer team equivalent to the Women's side.

Anonymous said...

What if women and girls in other countries were encouraged, supported, and permitted to play soccer (i.e. football) to the same extent as the boys and men in their respective countries? Would the U.S. women still appear to be as dominant? The success of the U.S. women has more to do with a culture and systems of education and government that for the most part encourages their success, than its does with training and development.

Anonymous said...

523 Exactly instead of changing the programs and re-inventing something that has already succeeded on the women's side why not tell US soccer federation to market the sport better, bring up and market the culture of the sport so more fans and kids stick with it as they get older. Spend those $'s there on the men's side then hopefully it will succeed with or without a DA program.

There is absolutely not one US male player a young boy can look up to compared to the girls side.

Anonymous said...

Nice tie by the women yesterday - heh.

Men is U-23. You realize this, right?

Anonymous said...

5:23 thank you. You get it. We are not dominant because of ecnl's powerful kick and run development program. We are dominant because the best women athletes are encouraged to play soccer from a young age. The boys are getting mid tier athletes with a few good athletes. I dont think the boys get the elite athletes in this country. So the fact that boys from DA are starting to compete in europe against elite european athletes is a really positive data point. The system is working. So when you compare us womens vs mens remember the athletic pools are different. You are not comparing apples to apples.

The uswnt has looked horrible. If we played like france with our talent it would be 5-0 every game. We are athletic not the greatest players save for heath press and some of the new comers.

Anonymous said...

7:19 - You are right US women have some real good athletes but at that level they do have some skill. The new comers do have more foot skill then the older players. The new comers were taught differently.

On the Mens side they will never get the bulk of the talent. They do get a few talented kids. If I had a boy I would have pushed him towards Football, Basketball or Baseball before Soccer. Although, they are sports I grew up with. Maybe our kids will push their boys toward soccer instead of football.

I have noticed driving around to different areas or parts of the country the one thing that is in most every town is a nice HS football stadium. Maybe the soccer teams are allowed to play there.

Men's lacrosse is the up and coming sport. All the best athletes and gravitating towards it now. People are concerned with injuries in football and baseball is boring. Plus the girls like football and Lacross players more, that can be a deciding factor too.

Anonymous said...

DA and GDA is nothing more than a shell game, moving the best players from one program into another. For this reason, DA has not helped to improve the level of the men's soccer team in comparison to the rest of the world. The men's program was in the 2d tier before DA and is still in the 2d tier with no young super stars, ala Mesi or Ronaldo, to place our hopes of a future world cup title. GDA will likewise have no impact on the level of our women's national team in comparison to the rest of the world, but the women's program is full of young super stars and will, therefore, continue to succeed. Until the men's program is able to attract elite male athletes to play soccer, the men's program will continue to stay in the 2d tier, miss out on the Olympics, and have no real chance of winning a World Cup. Having a few players on European teams is not a measure of success. The US had players in Europe in the 80s when Dads coached our teams.

I don't think the boys DA is doing a terrific job. I think it's too exclusive leaving out many talented players. The US wants to have all these elite groups. All clubs who adopt the training philosophy of US soccer should be allowed the same opportunities.

Is soccer a fall sport? No, 10 months and no other sports. At least boys who play football and lacross can play multiple sports. Even basketball or skiing in winter. Soccer controls your life and family time, other sports don't. The girls DA trying to do the same, and for what? That almost zero percent chance you make the women's national team. And then what? They don't don't even put college first.

The DA has become a recruiting place for college coaches. Most of the players end up playing in college. A few might go to Europe to play but that's the choice of the player and family, not the ussda.

K.B. should not be on LVU 2002 Black team. She is a 2001 player, which means, she will be u16 in fall. She played ODP

Yes please Gotsoccer immediately remove any 01s from any 02 rosters, especially if they played ODP so people can get some sleep. Thank you in advance.

What is Nike ECNL? Is Nike giving them the shoes?

743 agree but I think many colleges pay them also as it seems to promote certain collegiate schools as well.

As I look at the list of EPD teams, I am amazed that we have never played those teams. You would think that through the course of various tournaments we would of encounters at least some of them. My daughter is an 02, so I guess this is the table we will face, although we play NYCSL NPL, we might see a few at NEWSS or DISNEY. Good luck to all!

1. FC Stars haven't finished in the playoff money for the past 2 years. That would be quite a jump
2. The comfortable pick would be Wildcats, but I assume withe the combo of NJ Rush, SJB and Hamilton Wildcats the Rush team would be too much for them at U15
3. STA may have something to say there

Think about half of the 2002s were with MFA last year. ECNL team added some pretty talented kids from other clubs. I am curious what the team will look like.

3:59 Maybe because the 9th graders didn't participate ?

Anonymous said...

7:00 Why wouldn't they if they are on the team? Please don't tell me they would leave their team behind -the team that will get them to the promise land to play for their high School team. In my opinion any player that doesn't pick their team first shouldn't be on the team period. Let them fend for them self if that is their choice. Non-ECNL teams need to more successful then their ECNL counterparts to be accepted to top flights to benefit the team. If players aren't ready to contribute to that then they shouldn't be there in the first place. We always talk about taking HS away from kids how about the kids that pick the club first? What of them and the money their parents spend to play short at tournaments?

I say keep it simple - Premier Clubs should put a stop to this or drop their tuition at this age and older - I thought these were the important years for kids to get on a college radar? If that's what they want they need to pick club over HS simple - or play HS/ODP and as many other sports that they want.

Overall, the non-ECNL teams were more successful than the host ECNL team at Spirit.

8/21, 3:59 - Although most people already know, North United is one of the better USYSA teams. They are from Pittsburgh. They will be playing EDP 1st Division South this fall and National League this year. North United and SJEB/Rush (FKA NJ Rush Blue, FKA Renegades, or whatever) have had a few close games recently. A reminder, U15 NL stacks up as follows:

HMMS Eagle FC 02 Impact Eastern Pennsylvania Region I
New Jersey Rush 02 Blue New Jersey Region I
North United Rush 02 Pennsylvania West Region I
YMS Premier 02 Eastern Pennsylvania Region I

So can someone please tell me why Rush went to NPL finals, seems like they tried to do both, and were a miserable failure at USYS Finals, too much soccer?? Rush is still a great team, and will have much success this year, good luck to them, and good luck to all...

Anonymous said...

Failure?

They got their players to national Events twice in front of college coaches, that my friend is a success. Who cares how the team did in regards to results I'm sure they wanted to win but as long as the players had a chance to show what they have at that level individually it's a win many schools that went to CO & TX won't come to region1 events.

The correct amount of soccer pal.

PA has HMMS & YMS as 02 team destinations and NY Rush represents NJ in NL and if they are doing both NPL and NL that'sa huge win win.

In regards to not all the teams showing up true - but we know how the teams that did stack up.

937 must be referring to CFC ecnl who played in the tournamanet. They didn't even finish league last year because they were son bad and teams were beating them by 6 plus points by halftime.

Anonymous said...

159 so are you saying an ECNL team did not finish league play, wouldn't that club be placed on probation or something especially with so many clubs trying to get into the ECNL league.

They should be, not sure how they got away with it. They literally could not compete, it was sad and not fun to play against them.

Wrong CFC - Although they do look alike. Neither one very strong according to results.

Anonymous said...

Are we talking about last year U13 or U14? As U13 was still pre-ECNL and U14 was ECNL and yes based on the ECNL teams do get placed on probation.

Anonymous said...

You can tell there are many newbie's on the blog coming from U13. 243 That's Pre-ECNL which doesn't even gauge what the teams will be as the ECNL website will have more info per team. To what I hear the ratio of U15 2002 ECNL teams like PDA, MF, WC, and so on have a 65-80% ratio of HS to 8th grader on the teams. So again let's not gauge and point out teams if you do not even know what your looking at.

I think NL USYS will be the league to watch this coming year, I think those teams will be just as strong and comparable to the top 5 ECNL team.

@10:28 So I am at beach yesterday with friend of mine talking about who this team is? Thanks for the information and listing. Good for them, they won top bracket at Spirits, what else can you ask for. All of these teams are great teams below. Makes sense. YMS the weakest, HMMS just keeps getting better.

Debated whether I should respond, so here goes. The OP was talking about this past summer, when the Rush team was playing as U13 team, then someone pointed out that college coaches don't have time to attend those games, even if they are national events.

okay, that conversation ended long ago, let it go. This is now u15.

Anonymous said...

Just to clarify some of the discussion here... for U13 Pre ECNL last year, Connecticut FC dropped out for the spring Season. Continental FC stayed in and had a ok spring, beating World Class and Match Fit, tieing East Meadow and Penn Fusion, losing to Stars, Boston, Bucks, FSA, Fury. They ended the season 8th place out of 12. Match Fit did not report their last two home games, so this skews the standings on the npl northeast website.

Anonymous said...

Again why are we talking about U13 as many on this blog or heading into U15 were U14 players last year. I think someone posted yesterday a ratio of HS players so let's forget about the U13 years as this U15 year is the first of for many of actually attracting schools which is the most important fact of why our girls play club soccer.
NY-North Jersey area will be a something to watch with 5-6 teams headed to girls DA next year with in a 2 hour distance from each other it will be a hub of soccer craziness up here.

And from Arlington County, VA, a traditional hot-bed of soccer, the latest news is that the School Board voted last week to make Ultimate Frisbee an official school sport for middle and high school students. Arlington County becomes the first school system in Virginia to make the game an official sport. “It’s a lot like soccer, but it has an aerial element that’s similar to football,” said David Soles, executive director of the Youth Ultimate League of Arlington. Ultimate will be a fall sport for boys and girls, so it will not compete with soccer, which is played in the spring in Virginia, although I suppose those in the DA will be precluded from playing. BTW, Long Bridge Park in Arlington is a beautiful soccer complex.
