U12G / U12 Girls Youth Soccer

U12G  / U12 Girls youth soccer seems to offer the most teams and the widest diversity of talent.

Where these players will end up is anyone guess.

Welcome to the ride.

3:44 Does it matter? Ajax, Avalanche not sure i follow the importance of this? Not everyone is from Jersey. Explain. A team folded and girls moved, we shall see the impact shortly as August is right around the corner and the 2014/2015 season begins. Is it me or where the hell did summer go it's already July 14th. Man I'm getting old.

Beating up on any of the PDA, NJX, Wildcats or Matchfit teams is so much more fun (& easier) versus say Jackson or talking about some person's daughter's "unfair" season ending evaluation & he doesn't know what to do about it. Please September, for the goodness of this blog please hurry up & come. We need you!

NYSC really is the best of that bunch, and should be compared to EM Hotshotz and WC Charlton, when evaluating the top teams in NYE.

Just my opinion, and I know everything.

When do the vampires start to show up in Alaska? October/November?

I'm going to disagree with you on NYSC - I think they are a good club vs teams at their level. The below results tell me they are not at the same level as WC and EM. Albertson is ahead of you guys, they beat you twice this Spring you can't leap frog them. Sachem won State Cup like you guys and also won their Regional.

Good Team just not top level yet. Let's see what they do this fall in NYCSL NPL with a trip to the 2015 NPL Finals on the line.

Anonymous said...

We recently moved to NJ from NY so I am very familiar with the NY teams. WC and Hotshotz are in a category of their own. Other NY teams are not as strong and there are MANY NJ teams I put ahead of the rest of the NY teams. that said. Athletico and Sachem are overrated. My daughter's team played sachem in the Fall and spring and they were not so impressive. The state cup they won did not have the best competition and I am shocked they were able to win at regionals. I've never seem storm play, but from what I've heard on this board, and what I've seen of Sachem, I would have thought Sachem would have gotten killed!

PA Classics are not a Top 5 team in PA. Same dynamic exists between Penn Legacy and PA Classics as exists between Penn Fusion and Continental FC: Two clubs geographically close to each other have the same pool of players at tryouts; all the good players go to one club. PL and PF both win out in these battles, at least at this age group.

Why all the hate for 1776/Nether? Seven GotSoccer events, four championships, state cup finalist. Finished fourth in PAGS behind Ukrainians, PL, and Harford. Only losses in PAGS are to other teams in your top 5: Ukrainians, PL, YMS.

The negatives: three ties at Annandale tournament, and losses to BRYC and PWSI at Jeff Cup. Not the worst of results. Strange that they have the most GS points but you dropped them all the way out of your top 5.

We are pretty good with a Futsal ball, too, actually.

We can beat any of those teams, if we played them again, trust me, I know what I am talking about.

Anonymous said...

1776: the below results make me question how good they are: Are those teams good PA guy? 3 of the 4 are not even PAGS D1. A top team should not struggle against all 4 maybe 1 but not all 4 (again didn't see any of the games and don't know how close the games were) when we compare results are the only metric we have.

LVU 01 GIRLS GOLD (PAE) 1-0
DEEP RUN UNITED BLACK 01F (PAE) 2-2
TOWAMENCIN FIREBALLS (PAE) 0-0
HFC READY '01 (PAE) 2-3

Anonymous said...

PA guy, I went i think by your comments that FC Revolution were a top 5 team in PA. Going by that
PA CLASSICS ACADEMY 01 beat them 3 times this year just by GS, not sure if they played in PAGS. I am actually surprised PA Classics haven't made a push for ECNL since they are a DA on the boy's side. I think they would win the battle with PL even though PL has the WPSL team (I think).

Anonymous said...

I don't know how it is where you live but the PA Classics brand means more to me than the Penn Legacy brand. I think if you pool the players from these clubs you can probably make a good ECNL team? Better than Delco or Bucks?

Anonymous said...

I may have to retract what I said about FC Rev. They thrashed PL recently 4-0 or 5-0 or something, but they may have had ringer playing for them. There is an FC Rev U13 girls who mostly plays up with their U14 team. When she comes down to the U13s for the occasional game, she is a difference-maker.

PA Classics has a core of players who left PL due to lack of playing time, so at least at this age group, I give the nod to PL.

Regarding 1776, not sure where that LVU Gold (B team) score came from. Are you sure it isn't the LVU A team? Same with Deep Run. Last two times they played Nether won 1-0. HFC is a solid D2 team, so I can live with the 2-3 result there, but there is no explaining away the 0-0 tie with Towamencin. Ouch.

What PDA teams going to Stars of Mass, dragons? Ajax? Storm?

Anonymous said...

4:14.

That is true. Every team will win a game or lose a game here and there.

You can pretty much look at their record as a whole and gage where they are in the pecking order.

Teams like Matchfit, PDA ,WorldClass,East Meadow, are not great teams yet. All these teams are trying to figure out what there system is going to be in the future.

And the starting line-ups you see today, will not be the starting line-ups you will see tomorrow.

The fate of these teams will be determined by how many strong players come into the program to make a strong team for at least 1-14.

It could go either way for any of the teams.

One thing I am sure of is that those teams that stay with the girls that they have and do not make any changes in the next two years will be on the bottom of the ECNL list in the region.

Development happens to a point but natural ability and development makes a coaches life so much easier.

4:14 you the man - for a second I thought we were on the u12 board. AND yes thanks 5:05 but posters like 4:14 only see things one way and that's their way.
So what do you want to talk about 4:14?

PA guy, I took the 1776 results from GS copy and paste. No hate - just to many question marks for a team that is on top of the lists and yes I know you win some and you lose some. But a Good team will handle an okay team 99% of the time just on athletic ability alone plus a deeper roster.

The difference between these teams are not the starting XI - it's the depth when you replace 4 to 5 players do you lose a step? The good teams don't.

Anonymous said...

5:43, its 4:14 here, hmm, what to discuss, hmm, drawing a blank, but I will agree with you about the drop-off issue, its paramount. Are there any teams that you have seen that have no noticeable drop-off?

Anonymous said...

5:43.

At this level of play no team has depth to be a great team.

Even ECNL teams at this age group have a drop from player 1-7 to 7-14.


It is the main reason for inconsistency, assuming the team has been trained will to begin with.


Combining a PDA and Matchfit or a Matchfit and worldclass may get you closer to the depth that is needed to be a great team. These teams are still waiting for those players to come into their program. Maybe the parents don't want them to come but the coach will not turn then away when they show up

Anonymous said...

hi 4:14, it's 5:43 they all have a drop off, for some it's more of a drop. When the benches get small most of the top teams can hang with each other 50/50 and every once in a while slip to a team they have no business slipping. They are all good team that will only get better with age.

As girls stop playing and boys come into the picture there won't be as many good teams around so the girls that want to stick with soccer try to move to the Academy type teams, some will be able to stick and for others they will be equal to the girls already on a roster and them sticking will be harder from what I imagine.

my 2 cents

Anonymous said...

4:14 one more thing - I am a fan of the National Leagues or leagues that promote. Every game is important and every practice is important for kids to play. They will work hard all the time to earn their minutes, this along with great training will develop our kids into very good soccer players (the ones that want soccer).

I am jerk when it comes to soccer and my kid - love to follow her age group more than EPL or MLS. Just more fun to me.

Nope I didn't miss them, without guessing - I don't know who the pre-ecnl team is and who the npl team is.

This board has helped, but those clubs haven't changed their team names via GS. SO all it would be is a guess on my part. The clubs I've listed are ahead of the curve and already started putting their 2014/2015 season in place from what I can see.

GS manually enters NPL and ECNL results, they don't know which team is which so they create new accounts.
People hate on GS but they try to do things right. We just make it hard for not being organized.

If you guys know people on these teams point it out to them and consolidate your points.

NJ teams won the NPL National championships at U16, U17, and U18. Pretty impressive.

Anonymous said...

EDP should try and make a power move and take all the NJ leagues under their umbrella and form their own pyramid.

NPL
Premier Division for non Regional NPL teams
Then use all the other teams from JAGS, MOSA, MNJYSA, MCYSL, SJGSL, SJSL, JCYSL & MYSL to form local travel leagues with an opportunity for promotion into their Premier Division. All the teams will get GS points for wins and league placement to help them when it comes to applying for an event.

This is very similar to what NYCSL is doing to NY.

Then EDP can have a huge OPEN cup.

Just an idea there would be a clear pyramid for kids playing in these leagues - no misinformation a clear pyramid.

2:48 how about just be girls for a month.

However, I don't have a problem with clubs that play during the summer and use that as a warm up for their fall season. And use the quiet time to move up the charts. Nothing wrong with that they are looking for every advantage they can get just a different philosophy.

Besides it gives me something to talk about. I like this board (shame on me) and I don't have a problem sharing my opinions or having you cats blast me or accuse me of being something I''m not. It's all good.

You keep saying your the best club in nj and usa then why duck the comp next weekend.It seems like a good chance for new coach to see new mix of players on storm before start of fall play as us club has no roster freeze for this event from edp regular season.

12:07- point is it is 2 competitive games for far less travel and cost than usually needed for comparable games in league play or top tournaments.Hard to blame teams who qualify not attending due to economic reasons when you consider how much it normally costs clubs and families for comparable competition.
Must be something more underlying the decision not to compete.

Well lets say 2-3 days per week soccer training, then 1 day per week strength agility. We played every single day growing up. In High School we trained and/or played every day. It is really up to trainers/coaches to monitor the training, so if you do 4 days perhaps 2 should be lighter, calistenics etc. Most kids these days simply do not do enough on a daily basis. GFA was mandatory 4 days and Fridays optional.

yes its called pre ecnl.

I doubt they need an edp match when they have all year during u13 to figure out what they have. and continue to make the necessary adjustments.


Here no scores are kept or recorded, just a bunch of ecnl teams scrimmaging each other all year long.

That sounds like a much better process for both Matchfit and PDA to try and figure it out.


I wonder if worldClass or East Meadow will participate?

From an article on MLS.com - I'm happy you are happy your kid's team is winning games. Just keep them working hard if they are good sky is the limit.

According to the family, Sevilla's coaches have already told "", who plays in central midfield, that his potential is enormous, and suggested that he could grow into a national-team caliber player someday.

“They said if I keep working hard, I can make it,” "" said. “I love soccer because if you work hard you can be great at it.”

This goes for every kid - that doesn't mean you or I need to force the kid to do it - if they do it on their own they will be great regardless of a teams winning %.

PS. I am the same poster who posted the winning% to keep us talking about stuff this summer.

Really think you are a little to obsessed with another person that you have got to continue calling a person names, bringing down a young player, ridiculing their team. This would be considered bullying and you should take an anti-bullying course like your daughters probably have in school. Maybe you then would see what you are doing. Do your girls know that you are talking about their peers like this? Grow up. Coaches volunteer their time. Players are developing into their own. Whether they are playing for fun or serious enough to want to go farther. To talk about players the way it has been most recently stating how you think they play, mainly what they do wrong in your eyes is pathetic. Shame on you for bullying. Shame on you. Let the girls play. Can the blog be kept as a positive forum instead of abusive? Did you read the paragraph above where you leave your comment Keep the discussion informative, lively and engaging, not negative?

yes, I heard about Red Card. have to admit the guy is passionate, he wants to win, he is one of few coaches that shows the girls how to win.

Anonymous said...

Passionate = Red Card?
Nice try but he will soon be fired or suspended by NJSA or State or league.
Red cards in youth soccer are not acceptable behavior.
It takes an out of control tantrum to get a red card in youth soccer which is why it carries suspensions beyond just being removed from the remainder of the game when it occurs. To repeatedly be red carded in season after season and with team after team and club after club as this coaches history reveals is a clear sign that the coach is out of control and does not belong working with young players in a reputable Academy. How do you think his behavior will play with the college coaches when your girls are showcased at tournaments at U15(just 2 years away). Does NJSA employ a 2nd coach to come to each game and tournament so when your coach gets red carded the extra coach can step up and coach the team for the remainder of the game and the next game since red card coach will also be suspended for an additional game at any tournament that he receives a red card so you don't have to forfeit the game?

Anonymous said...

Yes NJSA Galaxy coach was red carded and the team had to forfeit the game.

Anonymous said...

That stinks....Coach and Ref ruin's it for the players.

Anonymous said...

It's a bit of a stretch to blame the refs when the red card coach follows them off the field after the game continuing to berate them all the way to the parking lot as this coach has done repeatedly.
That type of abuse really leaves the refs no choice but to issue a red card.

Anonymous said...

Red card coach is a tough one. I just like his passion - I hear all the issues associated with this. I and all of you should remember Billy Martin and many others, thrown out of games, suspended, hockey players with penalties - goes on and on. So yes it happens in professional sports all the time. I do think to be the best, if you are not passionate, you cannot win. Does he take it too far, I was not at the match, did the Red card coach cause a team a tournament win, yes. Have I been at matches where the refs have no clue, no knowledge of the game, very, very young. Have I been so upset I wanted to slap them, yes, yes, yes, with both kids refs many times. it is a tough one gentleman.

Anonymous said...

Don't think Billy Martin or those professional enforcers(designated fighters) among the NHL Hockey players would be appropriate coaches for U12 girls.

Anonymous said...

Can the red card coach see the other side of the field and know what girls are actually playing in the game? If so it would be better than some others I have seen coaching this age group.

And if it doesn't effect you directly why would anyone care?

Like a few posts have said just enjoy your daughters ride wherever that may be and have fun.

Rutgers needs to avoid conflicts of interest at any cost after recent scandals with fired mens bball coach as well as new mens bball coach.
I'm sure they told both rutgers womens soccer coaches that the pda conflict of interest with rutgers is over and rutgers would not take the chance of more bad publicity especially for a non revenue womens sport to cause a recruiting scandal.
PDA/Rutgers conflict of interest on the womens side with doc also being assoc head coach was a potential problem with rutgers moving to big ten that they wanted to avoid before it blew up on them.

tough break for storm players.
Now another coaching change just before start of fall and so soon after doc picked his new team at tryouts. All promises now null and void.3rd head coach in 2 months for Storm. have they named another coach yet? Who will be new girls doc?

hmmmmm on PDA issue, why is guy taking down posts? I agree with other poster regarding this. the bitterness needs to end, I post and read this because it should be fun and my daughter is U12 lol like the blog is supposed to be. It takes my mind off "other things" regarding PDA they will always be good and get great coaches, that is the pinnacle of coaching youth soccer. Only 5 real academies in NJ. NJSA, PDA, Cedars, TSF and Match Fit. They will attract best coaches. Back to Red Card coach, he is a great trainer/coach, his brother does a great job also. they push the kids, believe me these kids need it. We were definitely pushed this way as children in sports, even more so back then. It is not like we are Israeli and sending our 12 year old daughters to military school, however we need to be aware of how things are now with video games, phones and other outlets, and be sure our children remain on the fields as long as they can, and compete. Once that ends they are into drugs, alcohol and other stupid stuff. so bring on the red card coach if he can properly train my daughter and coach her. we do not play for him, however maybe some day, we have trained and guest played with him and brother through UST.

The long time flouting of the 50 mile rule by rutgers/pda womens soccer coaches has beena constant as NCAA Rule forbids college coaches from training or coaching ANY players who are freshmen through seniors in high school if they live more than 50 miles from rutgers campus.
EVERY nj player on ANY PDA U15-u18 team over the last 14 years who lived south of northern ocean county including ALL of south jersey who were on the pda U15-U18 teams during that time period coached by GC and/or MO and/or rutgers assistant coach MR was an infraction of ncaa rules as they clearly lived more than 50 miles south of Zarapeth/pda site..
rutgers is under the microscope now with 2 recent scandals in men bball and athletic director gaffs and move to big ten.
Again word surely came own from on high to eliminate ANY questionable practices or conflicts of interest in ANY of the rutgers sports programs that had the potential to jump up and bite the program with more embarrassing revelations.

@8:51 we are not doing summer soccer this year as a break, thanks for the suggestion tough person, lol. try and keep this blog fun, if you want to call people out do it to their face, hiding behind an anonymous blog and talking about someones life and children is cowardly. I do love, ,love soccer, it is fun, have a few kids in it for years. And of course those academies have top coaches and players, what are you talking about, no knowledge yet again on this blog, just like the referees red card coach has to re-explain off sides and soccer rules to during and after matches. these coaches played professional soccer, what team did you play for?? lol go Red Card coach, he is very good!

11:02, the fact that you actually support the RC coach is depressing, any ideas on how I can improve my mood?

The cowardly lion.

Unless you were there u have no idea what red card was for.

Red Cards and tantrums on refs are a pattern for this red card coach.
If it was just the one you might have a point.

Guys, what are we talking about with Red Cards. A coach who cant control himself and get a red card?

You guys are kind of having a personal chat - I have no idea what you are talking about - and honestly I don't really care either. So the guys a loud mouth - they're a dime a dozen.

What's the rule with a straight red card at youth games - never seen one. So if the coach gets one they have to leave the field? Do they play short a player? They should if they don't just like any red card. Can a parent get a red card and if so does the team have to play short a player? They should.

many adults, little 11/12 year old girls also support this RC coach. so if you are saying we are all stupid, the girls are stupid for supporting him NJSA is etc. etc. it comes to a point where you have to look at yourself. And yes, I am in my mid-forties and have several children in sports, and I also played throughout college. So I have seen, more than my share of horrific refs. unjustified red cards etc. etc. etc. you just have to be an athlete yourself to understand this passion.

And thank you 1:16 for bringing some levity to the subject, I do not feel it is one on one conversation, it is important for all to hear. I myself have coached up until this year! I have never even been yellow carded so I get it. But again, I wonder, does the red card coach have the will to win, can he show my children that, can he/others like him, show my children how to be the best, how to be like "winning is certainly not everything, BUT trying to is" Try to win, beat the other lot, dont let the opposing side die of boredom because there is no passion

Do not know red card coach. If his team supports him then great. Wish you the best. Just don't mistake passion for a person who can not control himself when things don't go your way. Have a great season

Question relating to post 2:00pm -
If 50 mile rule forbids players who are in high school and live more than 50 miles from the colleges campus from being trained or coached by that colleges coaches than that is a clear competitive advantage in recruiting for rutgers and an ncaa violation. But what about the competitive advantage gained by the PDA U15-U18 teams who had theses south jersey players on their rosters the last 14 years while theses rutgers coaches were on their coaching staffs?

9:01pm -Here is the NCAA 50 rule from the NCAA website:

Institution's Coach Observing Prospective Student-Athletes While Acting in Capacity for Local Sports Club (I)

Date Published: November 7, 2012
Item Ref: 1
Educational Column:

Editor's Note: This column was updated June 20, 2013, to add additional questions to assist with membership clarification.

NCAA Division I institutions should note, pursuant to the local sports club legislation, in sports other than basketball, an institution's coach may be involved in any capacity (e.g., as a participant, administrator or in instructional or coaching activities) in the same sport for a local sports club or organization located in the institution's home community, provided all prospective student-athletes participating in said activities are legal residents of the area (within a 50-mile radius of the institution).

Very Clear.

Its obvious that PDA broke the rules. For years they disregarded the fact that their players had an advantage in the quality, and quantity of expert coaching. The issue is, will the NCAA pick this up, it might not be a big enough story. However, both USYSA and US Club can impact this melodrama.

PDA has different campus's just Match Fit or any other club. Stop being jealous.

Maybe the Big Ten coaches already brought this out to NCAA. Could be why Rutgers coach resigned.
After all who believes a head coach resigns 2 weeks before the beginning of the new fall season.
Especially when he is recently on record as saying he is very excited about the challenge and opportunities provided by this falls move to the Big Ten. Will be interesting to see if new head coach and returning assistant resign all positions with PDA Club immediately.

read the rule, campus must be in the general neighborhood of college institution they work for and players must not reside more than 50 miles from the COLLEGE CAMPUS they work for, not the pda clubs campus.
Try reading rule again.
Nice try though.
Many players on recent pda commitment lists live much further than 50 mile radius from rutgers piscataway where those rutgers coaches work.
Period.

*:01 correct. Within 50 miles of the institution means within 50 miles of the college they work for, not the soccer club.
The reason the rule exists is to limit the college coaches contact to players in the immediate area of their college, local players.
It eliminates college coaches from bringing in high school age players(student athletes-recruits) from all over and developing relationship with them thru training and coaching them during periods when other college coaches do not have access to them(not even allowed to approach or speak to them until their senior year).
How many campuses pda or matchfit has is irrelevant.College coaches cannot work with high school players who live more than 50 miles from their institution.

PDA don't need no stinking rules as only the little people follow rules.

Actually it was Rutgers breaking the rule with an assist from PDA.

Either way you look at it just another example of rules only apply if we want them to mentality.

Nothing to see here so move on

Looking on Top Drawer Soccer Site many of the pda commits to Rutgers from class of 2012 were from way down in south jersey, while 50 miles due south from rutgers brings you only down to Brick area.
If Big Ten /NCAA is looking into this will it effect eligibility of current rutgers players from south jersey who may have been trained and coached by rutgers coaches at pda club in violation of 50 mile rule! There are at least 3 from class of 2012 who fit this profile.

Exactly, according to above ncaa 50 mile rule quoted above from their website both pda club and rutgers univ womens soccer has repeatedly broken this rule for the last 14 years. This will certainly affect rutgers move to the big ten as this is not the cowboy big east with Calhoun at uconn, bod huggins at cinn and West Virginia, etc.
the big Ten has northwestern, Purdue, Michigan , etc. and these are among the top academic institutions in the country.
those big east coaches were so busy trying to stay out of trouble and covering their own that they didn't have much time to worry about what the other schools in the big east were doing.
that is not the case in the big ten and rutgers recent troubles and scandals in mens bball have caused the rutgers administration to take a hard look at situations in ALL their sports that could cause more embarrassment as they move to big ten this fall.

...and this affects you how? Let the NCAA and Rutgers figure it out.

It surely doesn't have much to do with rising U13 girls soccer.

Anonymous said...

It certainly does as pda has used it's employment of rutgers coaches as trainers and coaches at pda club to woo players who are outside the legal 50 mile radius from rutgers campus.
this certainly helps pda draw players who would like to play at rutgers someday and look at playing and training with the rutgers coaches as youth players while at poda as a way to develop relationships and showcase themselves to the rutgers coaches. this is exactly why the rule is in place as this type of contact with student athletes is an unfair recruiting advantage for both rutgers and pda club.

The rule is fine and clear and it is something that the NCAA and Rutgers should/will sort out. It doesn't affect you negatively unless your older daughter was not awarded a spot on the Rutgers team because a player of lesser talent from PDA was given the spot. Please, everyone that falls into this category on the U12-U13 girls soccer blog, please reply asap so we can get a head count and get this injustice rectified immediately.
