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...

How can you take the "14 that are going to play" when you do not know how the 3 substitutes will be used until the game moves along? I'd also assume keepers that are splitting games are not considered as one of the three. Thus really 17. 6 subs, 3 get in. The other 3 have at least gone through pregame and been there in the battle.

Anonymous said...

And before you say being on the bench serves no purpose at all if you do not see action - you might ask yourself - why dont I talk to my daughter about paying attention from the bench - making it a learning experience - instead of just sitting there all upset about not getting in - and thus learning nothing.

Anonymous said...

These are the substitution rules off the academy website. I think people are mistaking the 4 substitution moments in a game for the amount of subs you can have. If you carry 18 players on a roster, almost everyone can get in. The academy mandates a 25% start time minimum for every player as well

2. Substitutions: All U-15/16 and U-17/18 Academy games will have a maximum of five (5) . U-13, U-14 Academy games will have a maximum of seven (7) substitutions per game with no re-entry across three “opportunities”. The U-12 Academy games will have unlimited substitutions with re-entry.

8:33 are you kidding me with that keeper comment? Of course it counts as a sub. The bench serves a purpose I agree but not with a 2k price tag. But like I said to each their own, for me money doesn't grow on a tree and I'm okay with my kid not starting or seeing 20 minutes a game if that's where she is. next season we leave and find a better fit, we let someone else take a shot at it, same if she doesn't dress. Her watching her team play with her schools on the sideline watching them play would do more damage than any good you write about 8:35.

My formula is simple train extra, give 100% and play your position (what ever role the formation calls for) and you will stick out on any field, but you have to be in the game to stick out and I think 2k buys you a seat at that table. But I know in the now 2k don't mean jack, because there is a line around the corner of parents that are willing to pay with the hopes that their kid will get nice minutes.

Major report of inappropriate behavior(drinking alcohol in room with players) with Cedar Stars Coach being sent home in middle of Jefferson Cup and another Cedar Stars coach sent to coach team for rest of weekend. The first report we heard was there would bee a suspension of the coach but then our coach was on the practice field this week so waiting to see if it will be swept under the rug by Cedar Stars Club.

Were they drinking absinthe? Chartreuse? Midori? That stuff should be outlawed!

Wait, I just went and looked at their gotsoccer listing and saw their coach. Now I am vomiting in my mouth thinking about him being in a room with 14 and 15 year old girls drinking.. That must be a HUGE rug Cedar Stars has to sweep that under.

"Baltimore, ok, take deep breath. At U15 if still at Baltimore is your kid going to get scholarship? Should you at the least be at Jeff cup in some type of bracket. Are any college coaches at Baltimore at all? signed - disgruntled parent stuck in Baltimore again."

You are a dick. Want to feel good about yourself? No their were no D1 coaches in Baltimore so a "scholarship" is not likely.

...However, I'm rich motherfucker and my kid is smart as shit - 1450 on the PSAT smart, 4.0 GPA so far in 9th grade. I could pay for my kid's whole team to go to college and my kid can basically get in wherever she wants. If your kid gets ANY scholarship - ever - it won't be from Jeff Cup. You'll probably do 2 or 3 ID camps at that school while my kid can just get in herself and I can pay for it like your poor ass pays for a dinner at Chili's in Virginia. Someday your sorry scholarship-chasing kid will probably be laid off at my kid's company...And she's struggle to pay off her student loans despite playing in the Jeff Cup!

I have no knowledge of this saga, obviously someone knows those parents mentioned to well to name them by name.

Date: April 29th
Location: Mercer Community College

A local soccer game became a free-for-all brawl between parents. Details are still being investigated, but the local police say that 8 adults were arrested, and scores injured, when animosity between two sets of parents overcame common sense and reason. A reporter at the scene, interviewed one of the Mom’s being taken away by police, she was yelling, “they started it” and “my daughter is better than yours...bitch!”

WC Coach left the club that my daughter play's at. Several parents are very bitter that he left and took many players with him. I see how parents would be upset with this, plus I see why a coach would leave our club. I still listen to parents that talk about him on our sidelines. My wife and I just roll our eye's, just let it go already. The girls on our team are playing well and it was a good move for him and his club

Anonymous said...

I recall the story as he was let go from MatchFit after a disagreement on a business matter.

Coaches have followings.

If they leave - I dont have any problem with their taking players for the following season

In the Crush/Torpedos Red example the coach never even attempted to take players - he just told them where he was going.

Anonymous said...

No disrespect to Ajax but the US Club national cup is a fake national championship.

Some State Champs go direct.
Some State Champs go to Regionals to play any team that applies.

NCS might not get the love of this board, but at least you need to win your State Cup to advance to regionals and for the 4 regional champs they advance to nationals to play the 4 National League Division champs.

Going back to US Club the top league (ECNL) doesn't even send their teams.

My NJ predictions since we are talking NJ.

NJ NCS - NJ Wildcats
NJ Cup - NJ Wildcats

Anonymous said...

If anyone is paying attention look how close the games here at ECNL Phoenix showcase. Goal differential is 1 or 2 goals compared to blow out wins at Jeff Cup top flights.

https://tgs.totalglobalsports.com/public/schedules.aspx?eid=329&fid=1286


This is the reason coaches will flock to ECNL/GDA to watch players more closely as the competition is very narrow at these events. You back home in the east can all chase GS points, State Cups, trophies; but ultimately those hear in Phoenix are getting a head start on recruiting. So when the avg. ECNL team has 80% of there players committed Jr/Sr. years all of you chasing glorified fake championships and cups along with GS points will be scratching your heads on why 2 or 3 players are only getting notice by colleges on your teams.

Despite parent's beliefs that a kid will be challenged when they come off the bench and can prove themselves - I have rarely it materialize ever in my life. Put your kid on a team where they are a starter.

IMHO, the only time it works is when your kid plays on two teams, one where she is a starter and one where she comes off the bench - but that requires an understanding between you, your kid and coaches of two teams.

Received an note re possible changes re college recruiting:

"A Possible First Step in Curbing Early Recruiting?

This week, the NCAA Division I Council will vote on proposed legislation that impacts just the sport of Lacrosse, but could be the first step to reforming recruiting in all sports.

If approved, the legislation will take effect August 1, 2017 and restrict all recruiting interaction between prospects and Division I lacrosse coaches to not sooner that September 1 of a prospect’s junior year of high school.

This proposed legislation affects both phone calls and on-campus visits:

Phone Calls: The proposal would not only prohibit Division I lacrosse coaches from placing phone calls to recruits prior to September 1 of the junior year (as is the case currently), but would also prohibit them from accepting calls from recruits or the recruit’s relatives or legal guardians prior to September of junior year.

On-Campus Visits: In addition, while lacrosse recruits and their families would still be able to visit a college campus at their own expense at any time they choose, Division I coaches and athletic department staff would be prohibited from having any interaction with recruits or families making an unofficial visit if the visit occurs prior to September 1 of the recruit’s junior year of high school. The provision of complimentary admissions to a campus athletic event during an unofficial visit will also be prohibited prior to September 1 of a recruit’s junior year.

Again, if this legislation is approved, it won’t take effect until August and only impacts the sport of lacrosse at the Division I level, but it will be interesting to see if it leads to changes for other sports in the future. "

And so it goes...

With tryout season approaching, I'm wondering if there are any teams/clubs that actually teach the game, or if they exist solely to take our money. I've seen the "top" teams play and they all play some variation of kick and run, which is basically rec or town travel with faster kids. It seems like throwing the word "academy" on the end of your club is just a marketing scheme. Rush, Match Fit, PDA, etc. where is the quality soccer being taught? I hear "this team is really good", I go to see them play and what I see on the field looks like hs gym class soccer if just the better athletes were playing. 15-16 years old and they still dribble head down, can't connect a simple 1-2 or string together more than 3 passes (at best).

And those are the kids going to play in college.

Because they want to be the star they want the ball and that's what most people see. No one cares that they can't connect a pass when they are breaking ankles and winning 50/50 balls. On defense if they are strong tough and can clear a ball is all that matters. These are good athletes that every coach thinks they can teach how to play because they believe they can. This is how soccer is played in the states I agree with 2:08

That person asks a reasonable question. I haven't seen any teams at any age group in NJ that play what he or she is looking for. You'd prob have 2 look in ca or tx.

I'm just curious to know who they are referring to specifically. I've seen a couple of 02 teams play a possession style game, playing out the back with short goal kicks etc.

Just curios too, which teams play that style, possession, no punts, and thought the midfield???

Anonymous said...

Based on my observations, there are several teams that can play both styles, all are ECNL teams.
Surprised?

Anonymous said...

I think you'll find it's more down to who the coach is, rather than who the club is. Some coaches want their players to play a short/mid range passing game, whereas others are more concerned with their defenders hitting the ball up the field as hard as possible at any opportunity to avoid any chance of conceding goals. Teams like NJ Wildcats, NJ Crush, Copa, Cherry Hill and PDA Dragons all play direct with no plans to control a ball and switch it out the back for fear of conceding. Those teams will win games but long term it's not the place for your daughter if they hope to develop and be seen by a College Coach. After watching the Dragons this weekend i didn't see them connect more than 5 passes yet somehow made the Final.

You are absolutely correct. When I made my previous comment I was just stating the ways Tm tries to recruit players I never said he had integrity or good intentions with any of it . I personally have never approved of all his back door dealings .

Arsenal is a fast and scrappy team, and they play mostly direct. They have a solid GK, but they suffer from a short bench, would keep the ball moving, and very wide on them, they are a good team.

question for you all, whats the going rate for 2002 club soccer this year, and how is that to change for you next year? was quoted 2700 bucks , trainer fees a few times week for 28 weeks, six tournaments and coach's fees and hotels for the coaches, league entries, insurance, carding. Is that a lot or a little?

Anonymous said...

I think 2200 to 3000 is the going rate, more or less, but very dependent as you mentioned on tournaments. The showcase events are that bit more money often go three games over 3 days. Gets costly.

Not an Arsenal dad, probably just someone who has know GFA from before the merger still referring to them as GFA instead of princeton GFA are an good but not great squad with 3,4 next level kids.

CFC or PF pre-academy?

Anonymous said...

Assuming you're asking for advice....CFC for sure.
If pre-academy, which means PF, then that's just a way to get your money and keep you on the roll

Anonymous said...

Agreed unless you're talking pre-academy at classics
I think many underestimate this underdog

CFC

6:42 - seems like this guy/gal just got a daughter's player eval he/she didn't like.
12:09 - go to try outs at both and make your own determination. CFC doesn't have pre-academy.

That's why you need to do your own homework and not trust everyone on this board. Some info is useful and some just love to pretend to be informative.

Pretty sure he nows cfc doesn't have da judging by his question
His daughter obviously was offered spots at both

Anonymous said...

6:42 implied otherwise in his/her response. So was correcting that commentary.

PF pre-academy try-outs have not occurred.

Anonymous said...

....have not occurred for this age group and older. I believe pre-academy tryouts for PF for U10, U11, etc. may have taken place already.

Is this U10, U11 etc...blog?

if it includes tournaments, under $3000 is a fair price. My older child has been doing showcases and everything is more expensive. the tournament entry, time away from home, video services, and much more. an extra night of hotel, either myself or myself missing work an extra day. most clubs are more like 2000 to 2400 and then another add-on for tournies once the coach selects his list. I would not be persuaded by a few hundred either way, as the most important thing is the education they get and having some fun.

9:51am...this is u16 (01/02) pre-academy versus CFC 02' ECNL

Some good match-ups today:

MFA---BREAKERS
PDA---EMSC
WC---ALBY
CFC(P)---WNY FLASH
BUCKS---STARS OF MASS
PF---SCORPIONS
CFC(C)---FSA

Any predictions?

Anonymous said...

yes, I have a prediction, these are the best teams in this region, hands-down.

Anonymous said...

Really? You think so? With PDA and FC stars I definitely agree. Have you seen WNY, Bucks, CFC (Pa) play? Not even close to the best in the region. The rest are eh. Haven't seen CFC (CT) or FSA play yet since new birth year split so can't say either way with them.

Really Cat dad! Your team is old news!

Yes, Arsenal is a very strong team.

Did you say Arsenal is really strong? Umm No they aren't

Just looked at Arsenal's results this year and they are good. They recently beat SJEB Grey Team.

Anonymous said...

Arsenal also tied CFC ECNL at Jefferson Cup and beat Lehigh Valley 3-0 in addition to beating SJEB Rush Grey 4-0 there.

Who are the other 3 semifinalists? Did both SJEB Teams Blue
and Grey Teams advance?

What will arsenal kids do next year? Small roster and mixed grades won't help keeping team together next year. NYSC or WCFC?

Anonymous said...

Lol Kitty Cat dads! PDA doesn't chase points or dumb state Cup! You are a second tier team!

Arsenal also gave world class encl all they could handle in Jeff cup final. Losing 1-0. As they say. Any given Sunday

PF 02' tiled Stars 1-1

So funny how teams always have that one player and parent that think they are above the team. And they also think they are fooling everyone while playing different cards. Excuse after excuse.
You know who you are. Funny part is you and your daughter are a blip on the radar. Good luck at PAC DA you will need it.

Scoreboard says 2-0 at Jeff Cup final, so using modern math, WCFC beat Arsenal twice as bad??
