Look at STA U14 team, very similar to the top teams at our age. Now all the top players are leaving for the likes of PDA and Match Fit on this team. Happens every year
No ECNL team in Reg 1 would have fared any better against FCV than the Wildcats did today, don't flatter yourselves. Just because you have the same cute letters at the end of your team name doesn't put you in the same league as FCV.
thanks coachBeat PDA or MF then I will listen. your team lost to PDA Ajax
No way any of the top pre ecnl teams lose by 4 to that team. Deal with the fact that the top is moving on without you. EVERY YEAR moving to U14 this happens......
Isn't Penn fusion a ecnl team?didn't they lose 5-0 to cinn cup gold today?And didn't fcv then beat cinn cleanly 3-1 in the final?
why didn't MF win bethesda then?It was the same teams as jeff cup for the most part in top flight and they didn't advance out of bracket.
Easy to say what you would have done when you don't enter and put your team on the line.Kudos to those who at least showed up to play vs the best.
MF did not lose 4-0 and all these ECNL teams will bump and grind against each other for the years to come. Why it is the best league to be in And how the cream rises to the top.
Wildcats last 3 events including this weekend saw them play 9 total games and score a total of 6 goals. None of their results were against elite or top teams even though they show a win over the Maryland SC champ 1-0. That team is only the SC champ because the better teams did not play SC. Hey...you can call it a win over the SC champ for sure but it does not pass the eye test. This is a masterful job of distortion followed by a similar level of extortion.
the very fact that you follow them so closely and know all their results better than their own parents shows they matter very much to you and are always on your mind.And yes, they are NJ State Cup Champs this year and will be going to Regionals in June and you are not and will not.Better luck next fall.
At U13 Wildcats in out-of-state tournaments have 1 win, 3 losses & 8 ties. In those 12 games its 7 goals for & 15 goals against. But they won the fall State Cup don't forget without having to beat any MF or PDA team. Kudos to them for that.
You can have job as their statistician when your team finally folds in 3 months. RIP.
FCV won final in OT
Why all the hate on this forum? It's U13 girls soccer for crying out loud, not life or death.My daughter is on the FCV B team.....of course ECNL is the top tier but on their way to the final in Jeff Cup this weekend they completely outplayed Delco (ECNL) and are streets ahead of McLean ECNL.FCV is an interesting club: some very good bits, some very bad but at U13 the top 2 teams are stocked with high ability girls.But at the end of the day it is only a game.
I figured FCV was in OT, down 1 goal. Nothing to lose but to push all up to try to tie game.
So what happened today 824? Was it a meaningless game? Subs played? Guest player on the other team? All that training & couldn't even compete with FCV today. The other teams in the bracket did but you couldn't. What gives? Lets take this further. You have played FCV 3 times at U13 - tied 0-0, lost 2-1 last year & today's 4-0 waxing. Why such a difference in results from those first 2 games to today? All that money spent on winter training & 4-0? LOL!
Wildcats are a good team, can compete to a degree. MF\PDA will only get better. Well MF depends where the ECNL will be personally.If north players move to South or South move to North. I would bet South to North. too much talent on North team to let it go
PL/Wildcat game was 2-1 until last minute when Wildcat coach brought entire team up on offense. It worked for Cats and FCV this weekend.

Too many things against MF. Either going north or south. Ecnl has a daddy coach and has reached his limit long ago, whether or not he shows favoritism towards his daughter or not. If Doc takes over, he isn't much better. Spends more time on his phone during training and games. MF in general is not about creating a team. They create an individual atmosphere, not a team atmosphere. As far as they are corcerned there job is done already at this age group, considering they have a u13 training with the u15 national team

I would also consider PWSI if they have another strong outing in their next major 86% if F2 but the 0% in F1 shows me they are close.On the flip side NJ Crush and Richmond ECNL should fall out of F2 as a 25% in F2 is showing me they are still over their head as is Richmond ECNL@ 17% could you image the score lines if they were still F1 and didn't replace them?Let's see what the next two majors do PDA & Delco.Great job to all the girls they are all winners individually for having to play in these conditions. But unfortunately,this is a team sport and there can be only one winner and since they use results to determine flights - this is the reason for my post. Just giving my opinion.
U14 Showcase & JR ECNL Event - Greer may 9th and 10thCan also have a strong F11 EM2 FCV3 MF4 PDA5 PennF6 Vardar
8:33 no sir, consistently right in middle of pack among regular F1 Teams in these showcase events.That is right where we belong right now and where we have been consistently at these events. In 3 way tie for 2nd place in F1 at Jeff Cup. Still in contention with something to play for right up through sunday game.Would be unrealistic to expect more right now. We have come a long way to be getting the top spot( 5 straight tournaments wildcats in F1 ) among nj teams entering these events every singe showcase tournament now.remember we were a F2 Team and didn't advance at jeff cup last year.
Tied for second place?????????? Please show me how that math works.
Second place is the first place loser.
FC VACincyPenn FusionPL(-1 GD)Tri(-1 GD)Cats(-4 GD)How does one get tied for 2nd place? Looks like 5th. Again, still a good showing but stop trying to work the numbers in all of these posts like the GS points.
PF & PL considered semi-finalists with capturing 2nd place in their brackets. Not bad for playing 11v11 for short period of time.
10:3510 fusion with a goal differential of –3 should really be listed beneath both penn legacy and tri-state in your list
Penn not 10 sorry
Penn Fusion had more points then both of the others so they are above and should be.
Then list them by points not goal differential. And yes playing the two weakest teams in D1 does help with that. They would have done no better then the Wildcats in the other pool
Again, Wildcats at U13 has played FCV 3 times. Twice last fall (@ WAGS tied 0-0 & at Bethesda lost 2-1) & yesterday's 4-0 loss. Did FCV's guest player make that much of a difference? Did Wildcats lose any player(s) over the winter? 3 games should give you a good barometer of how you compare against a team. These 3 games do not.
Funny as you guys always pump up your fellow league program, Calvert, as one of the top teams..... Which is it?In FC VA you are seeing the development of an ECNL team. This will become apparent to most top ECNL programs come Fall.
FCV 1st placePL -9 ptsTri -ptsWildcats -pts all 9 points 2 ties 1 loss each, 1 shutout point, 2 points for total goals scored.Only by goal differential tiebreaker were those 3 teams separated after 3 way tie for 2nd place in points.Now as to your question of what wse take from score vs FCV vs past 2 recent matchups do you think a game played in standing water puddles where after being passed or dribbled ball hit puddle and stopped dea should carry more weight than game s played in normal conditions at Bethesda or WAGS?Very little can being assessed accurately from playing in unplayable conditions.the 2nd games saturday and even the games on sunday morning games would not have gone forward if they were league or state cup games.
Calvert can compete, but not really a team that can advance in these elite events.They did just beat Storm though so please stop riding on FCV coattails if you are an ECNL Team.
Is this your first tourney?? You are forgetting the other side of the bracket in the top flight my man..... Everyone in the two brackets is part of the top flight. There are two teams on the other side that are right behind FC VA in points and above PL and Tri..... I mean, really?
Poor fields would have hurt the more skilled team in FC VA so that excuse goes away.....

Pretty sure mud and standing water compromised the game for players who have great pace as well.Everyone was slowed down to a jogging pace this weekend.
Of course I ripped Jeff cup for their placement of Richmond United. Did you see where that team finished in Division II? Seems it was well deserved. Look just because you are the biggest kid at the kiddie table doesn't mean you deserve to move up with the adults yet. A lot of these teams will play each other in league play between now and the time Delco's committee has to make that decision.
@12:22...Huh? Who are you talking about top flight & what does family wedding have to do with anything?
What semi finalist are you talking about??? There were no semi finals. Pool play is best of three games. The top 4 teams at the end in the overall flight will stay top flight teams. All the others, maybe not.....
Thats how it works my friend, there doesn't need to be a semi final game. The teams that finish second in each pool are the semi finalists, and will get points as such. Check last year at Jeff or Bethesda this fall. Both PA teams were semi finalists, and no one in that list of wannabees is going to knock them off without beating them in league play this spring.
Totally agree. Semi finalists are the 3 and 4 in overall points....I think some other teams were insinuating that because they were undefeated after the first two games that THEY were in the semi finals on Sunday.....
1:54 not true.semifinal points go to the best 2nd place finisher on each side of bracket, just as the best 2nd place finisher on each side of bracket would have advanced to semifinals had they been held in Jeff Cup.Since there was 3 way tie for 2nd in points on that side of bracket PL will get the semifinal points based on 2nd tiebreaker of goal differential since first tiebreaker was head to head and all three teams that were tied for 2nd tied each other head to head.
Why don't you enter your team instead of sitting these events out and then we can see how you do?the games were played under water this weekend.
Nj mediocre again at best. Even MF and PDA were not competing in the top flight
don't see where ANY of the nj teams are crowing about others results.None won their B or C flights and some(Dragons, NJSA Galaxy) didn't win a game in 3rd flight.
Must have been a long, wet ride home this weekend for a lot of teams. Next year, maybe you should take baby steps and try the Middletown Tournament, then maybe move up to the big leagues.
It wasn't raining yesterday in VA.. it was mild sunny and breezy... Ride home was dry. It was a fun weekend.. Sorry you're so jealous.
Worst weekend at a soccer tournament beats the best weekend of sitting home in Jersey!!
4:21. I agree 100%
You guys still haven;'t figured it out but it is the well known NJX Celtic parent and ex-Coach who are attacking you. FACT.
What posts are you referring to 4:48? And why do you think it is that person? He is not even relevant any more.
He obviously thinks he is, and so does she. You guys are all on the wrong track.It is coming from them.I know as I was t----.
Even more importantly than me agreeing with you 4:21, is that my daughter would agree with you. It was a very evenly played tourney, with one play often deciding each game (Usually does though). It was extremely tough to put passes together and score goals on Saturday. Any girl that played in this tournament came away with a lesson learned about playing in those conditions with high level teams. The rain and mud equalized talent, so you had to basically out work the other team. Was extremely surprised by the Fusion/Cincy score (5-0) and the FCV/Wildcat score (4-0). Legacy had had held FCV to a one goal and it made me think the Wildcats had a shot.
We played this weekend, and I am satisfied with our results. This was our first time playing since November, and all things considered we did well, not great, not terrible, but just enough good things to be hopeful. Our real season starts on Sunday, and that is when it counts. Our path leads to Nationals on July 9th, and we will endeavor to represent ourselves, and our club, with honor and pride.
4:48 I agree, he the same person that attacks the ECNL team continuously on this blog. I sit back and listen to this individual, then all of the sudden this same conversation is on the blog. There is an issue as he feels his daughter deserves to be on top team. Blah blah.
What will Nationals look like when some of these teams will be in flux following tryouts? Do the new players attend?
New players cannot play at Nationals, but that’s a really good question, since there might be some girls who are not coming back, and some that want to come aboard. Pretty sure our elite-core of players are staying, hopefully that will help us succeed.
His daughter belongs on a top team before the all mighty mommy coach. Fact
Where is Seth? What happened to Cleveland FC?
I heard that PDA sent a few Storm girls to play with Ajax this weekend, is that true??

Every time my child puts on her uniform she represents herself, team, and club with honor and pride.

That region 1 is some power league...... Yikes! Really??? With a straight face people come on pumping this as tough league. Like Mosa all over again.....
PDA players that play with both were with Ajax this weekend
How accurate is gotsoccer? It shows the NJX-MF team has played only 6 games since August 2014.Is this team still active?
8:41 not all those games listed were for top flight in Champions league.Top flight is loaded flight.South Shore Select Mass.NJ WildcatsPenn LegacyGreater BinghamptonBRYCPWSI1776
9:07 yes but NFL.Sold for 3 Magic Beans.
Wait until they don't see the field next fall.That is if they even are kept on roster at U14.
USYSA Region 1 also now changed rules to allow adds to roster after state cups are decided but before regionals are played in west virginia in June.So state cup champs will also be able to add players added to roster at tryouts to roster for Regionals.
Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't they split into 2 and they don't play each other. So 3 quality games for 1 flight and 2 for the other going by your list. What's the grand prize? A birth to Regional Championships? WOW they placed last year's champion in F2 this year and said they can get promoted if they do good. Slap in the face to Sachem Speed. But they are not in the inner circle oh yeah there isn't one.RedSouth Shore Select Mass.NJ WildcatsPenn LegacyGreater BinghamptonBlueBRYCPWSI1776
Actually I would consider the grand prize to be a berth in the USYS National League, most of those teams will likely win their state cup and have no use for a regional wildcard slot
Yes I agree 11:17 - but it looks like the birth is only to the region 1 championships or i missed it on their website
The Champions League is a qualifying league for the National Championship competition. Champions of Division 1 will be the automatic wildcard (regardless of their team's actual age level) for the Boys and Girls U 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 Region I National Championships respectively. There will be promotion and relegation between the Divisions starting 2016.

You all keep talking "Nationals". You have other layers above you that are at a higher level so "Nationals" of a lower level. Again, fine. But lets be realistic here. Entire levels above this level......
8:16 I don't know your individual situation. But if my kid is learning the game and if put on the field with 10 high level players she doesn't know at and is asked to play a totally random position. If she can fit in and play - then it's an honor regardless of the cost and regardless of the results.But that's just my 2 cents.
8:35 Honestly who cares how many levels there are this is youth soccer.All National Titles.ECNLNPLNational LeagueSuper YUSYSA NationalsUS Club National CupUSYSA President's Cup.Now all it takes is one club with some pull to invite all these champions to one tournament and let them play each other. You don't needUSL, USYSA or US Club for this. It's simple if you really want ONE.But for me - I like that there is a title for every level.
Totally agree. BUT you have to respect the levels. In any sport. Many try to make it sound like it is more than it is.... That is all. Good luck to all.

8:52Agreed PDL is D4 but the championship is still huge for all those players playing in PDL.go up a level to the USL it might be D3 and most of the teams are B teams -a title still means a lot to all these players.let's move up another level to NASL - a title means a bunch to these teams as well.There might be no pro/rel between these leagues one higher than the other - but they all get a crack at playing to qualify for CCL via the Lamar Hunt Open Cup.All the players in all these leagues respect MLS as D1 but to say their titles are worthless like some say is just wrong. Is the level of play different FOR SURE!! Same with youth Soccer - no lamar hunt open cup - USYSA had that and let it slip away. US Club can fill that void with their National Cup -but first they need to have all their member clubs buy into it first.Automatic bids for ECNL & NPL Champs.What ECNL Club won't want a DOUBLE - ECNL title plus a National Cup?What non-ECNL club wouldn't want to win the national Cup over an ECNL Club? What ECNL CLub wouldn't want a TRIPLE?League,State and national Title?? But US Club needs to up the anti and make it mean something to qualify.
You're totally right, 8:52. In three weeks let's be sure to point out to the winner of the NCAA tournament that while it's great for them, it really isn't that impressive because it's not the NBA.You're such a joyless prick.
8:52 is just a complete pompous ---hole.

Winning D3 basketball tourney is great BUT a BIG difference in the two. Who is the one out of touch on the topic??? Hello.....

Once again Seth the Soothsayer's crystal ball came through. Although Cleveland did not win as picked here, they did only allow one goal in three games and would have gave WC a better game in the final. Of course FCV was picked as the overall winner in their bracket and for the tournament. And of course I also correctly picked Fusion for 2nd. BRYC was a major disappointment and blame the magic 8 ball for that predictions. I did wiff on Legacy as I thought they would not hold up as well as they did against the far superior FCV, Wildcats and Tri State which was last years champion. It is written, It is factSeth The SoothsayerGenius Predictions INC
Seth,You are a failure at predictions, and picking FCV was lame, since most people agree that they might be the best u13 team on the East Coast, or in the country. Your desperate attempts at salvaging any credibility with CFC by noting their GD is even more lame. You sir, are a fraud, and should stick to LAX.
FCV over Cup GoldWorld Class should have been first flightedCleveland will have trouble with NYSC and AjaxThe TRUE solid projections.No thanks needed.
Best team at Jeff Cup may have been Grand Rapids.
The sad attack by 5:52 is usual when it comes to slackers that only feed off of stealing other peoples ideas and thoughts(usually a lot smarter than they are) . Mindless Drones like 5:52 will only make a statement after hear 50 other people proclaim it as truth. Basically 5;52 you are the mask of the minority hiding in the cloak of the majority. Seth however, is not afraid to be criticized in a rare moment when he is wrong. Were you the one 5:52 proclaiming that Fusion was dead in the water because they lost two players (While Seth predicted they would come in second because they gained two)? I also predicted recent injuries would greatly affect two teams, and low and behold two teams brought guest players ya big dope. We are the ones in the know, and we know you are a moron. My crystal ball is showing your face in it. It is the face of a an angry loser that didn't enjoy Jeff Cup. It is written. It is fact.Seth The SoothsayerPersonality Instructor willing to help 5:52
Who is Grand Rapids?
Super Y Championship 2 WAZA FC East1 Midwest United FC Grand Rapids Crew JuniorsThey also beatLong Island Rough Riders (2-1)
what is the champions league exactly?
I wish this blog had usernames or at least a quote feature, so we could keep track of all the different personalities who post here and didn't have to refer to them by "post time" it's probably the same 4 people posting everything though. lol
and a search function
Wow, so people are actually working today, or is there something wrong with the link that no one is posting anything today. So the 2nd level state cup starts this week. I think Wall or Manalapan win this bracket.
Dont be so sure.....
Be serious 8:27. You can't lose to teams from Tennessee and Kansas like Grand Rapids did and then mention them as a best team in a tournament that has Cincy, FCV, Tri State or Wildcats in it. I am thinking that you were joking when you posted that. They're not even stronger than PDA AJAX or World Class. Although WC should have been in the top flight.
2nd flight was a joke. Half of those teams didn't belong there. Didn't WC lose to STA, AJAX lost to Dragons and Crush has lost to everyone. Grand Rapids must have new players. They rolled over teams.
Maybe they just brought guest players like everyone else.
7:33, that is not true, our club does not allow guest players, once you are accepted on the roster, they are obligated to develop your child. If she does not improve, she will lose game minutes, and in turn that family will probably find another team next season. Such is life in our world, only the strong survive.
Our club takes any kid with a check..$$$
And that club must be match fit????
I think you can just "insert name here" for all youth soccer clubs. Show Me The Money!
733 - don't your really good kids usually leave to to PDA and WCFC?
Nothing wrong with money or people making it. Nothing wrong with academies having multiple teams or keeping each of the teams sold on a vision.The affiliate program is working very well for the academies. Leaves most of the heavy lifting to the club's who start the teams. The one gap is in the "high level" claims. When an academy has one top team and each player needs to earn the wings to make it...you in effect have a top team. When that same academy now has 3, 4, 5 teams, by default there is no top team and the claim that the best players should train among and play against the best can not be met. It is effectively just putting the dress on the pig as many of the players on these 3-5 teams are light years away from high level. If they and their parents are ok with this and for big $, so be it.
10:04You must have me confused with someone else. But since you brought them up, I did in fact have WC in mind when I made that comment.
That is a good point 10:24. There is nothing wrong with programs making money. If people are willing to pay, all the power to them.Parents who's daughter is on the 3rd / 4th team in that age group, have to understand their daughter most likely is not going to be on that top team. Girls from other top teams, and from the 2nd team will take those rare open spots. If a parent is willing to pay top money for the name on the jersey, and tell everyone their daughter plays for " insert team", that is their business.
My daughters club has only 1 team per age group, so we do not have that problem, but getting minutes is becoming harder for the slightly less-skilled girls, its really that close. This is the best team in our county, with the best training in the area, this includes Rockland county, I know because I have watched, very closely. Personally, I do not believe in multiple teams at same age, it creates elitists and a festering sense of inadequacy.
Does NYSC only have one team at this age group?
According to their website they do, interesting?
I like to see that-Anybody know anything about when they are going to have Try-outs?
Most teams have tryouts whenever you callOfficially they are usually in late April to mid May.....Nice club - NYSCAs for teams making money - as for players leaving teams, its all good. As lomg as your son/daughter is playing in a competitive atmosphere and getting good instruction - that is what the $$$ paid are for.Enjoy the weekend - handful of interesting games out there in this age group, I see.
"Personally, I do not believe in multiple teams at same age, it creates elitists and a festering sense of inadequacy."You're crazy. What does having B team quality players on a top team create?
All of you ecnl kool aid drinkers that think the cream rises to the top. Only difference between an ecnl team and a top town team is maybe 3 or 4 top players. Where as a town team may only have 1 or 2 top players. A few players may be more athletic than a town team player, but the town players have better soccer knowledge and field awareness. The training is just as good and most of the time better at the town clubs, because the trainers care and its not about the $$$$$. This is especially true in nj, when the top 20 teams can beat each other on any given day.
What does it create, haha, you’re kidding right?I will not even bother responding, because your post is self-explanatory, Mr. B-team perpetuator. You are totally, and I believe honestly, oblivious to your own slight. P.S. I always preferred Hawaiian Punch ; /
3:21, I love you , but you go too far.There is no way that any town team near us gets the same training as our players, no way, none, zero, zilch, nada. I do slightly share in the belief of several exceptional players on a roster that can turn a game, I think you need 7-8 of these types if you want to success, and build a solid core. P.S. please don’t disagree with me, I am fragile today.
I love you too 321 for giving me a much needed laugh today. I am going to bet that your daughter plays, ummmmm, let me guess EDP, right? Her team can't get into ECNL & therefore makes you very bitter, am I right?
Bitter bitter is right. The money is the SAME wherever you go to a team that plays all the time and in a bunch of tournaments. So stop it with the money. And you still do not see that the constant tweaking of a rotation makes the cream rise to the top. This will happen more and more over the coming months. Happens every year when U13's go to U14's..... You need the constant push to get to the next level. But I know, your team will be different....
3:53 Yes sir!And I believe if you are correct that 45 player rosters are in our future and imagine the competition for being rostered between all those players that that situation will create.Less than 1 minute per half average playing time per player below top 7-8 on squad over the course of a season.Look at the opportunities for development under the model you tout!It is not about the money, it is about development!yeah, right.
"Tout"n. noun 1. One who solicits customers brazenly or persistently. 2. One who obtains information on racehorses and their prospects and sells it to bettors. 3. One who informs against others; an informer.
Difference is the one route is proven to work..... Good luck with yours. I know, it will be different for your team....
4:21, is that ECNL humor, is that like SNL? They can be pretty funny, the ECNL people I mean.
Your team will be different right 430?
4:42.Which route are you talking about?isn't it the player that determines their college future, especially , if that player plays for a non ecnl team that competes very well against ecnl teams. Once you achieved a certain competitive level on the team you are playing for-everything else depends on the player.Not sure what you mean by proven route?Could you elaborate?Soccer Nut
The point is the ECNL path is proven. Every kid on the u18 rosters signed along with most of the NPL teams from both academies. If your daughter is playing on one of those teams how can one say this is not a proven way? Show me a non ECNL club that has same proven path? Of course there are other ways but to say the above is not the most proven way is just not true.......
And not many non ECNL teams will compete from U15 and up..... If you have been through this before, you would have to agree.
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.
NPL Finals 2015Two more spots up for grabs this week.Once Northwest Champions League updates their site we will know if it's Seattle United or Crossfire Premier both WA teams. The South Central Premier League should become clear after this weekend after Oklahoma Football Club Girls U13 play two games vs Eclipse Soccer Club Girls U13. They OK can clinch with 2 wins but I'm sure the TX club won't make it easy for them.1. JFC Storm 01/02 (FL)2. Arizona Arsenal U13 Girls (AZ)3. FC Portland Academy Pre ECNL 01 (OR)4.

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.
