If the Penn United coach doesn't like the flight his team is placed in and punches someone in the face, does he get another red card?

Some crushing on the way!
Crush games always a good experience
Easy to eliminate a few from contention in top flight. Wildcats, PL, BRYC. PDA vs FCV in final. EM is the only team that could potentially beat FCV going into the finals.
I agree, 4:27.
East Meadow is better than FCV - but I will call that a tie and both teams finishing bracket at 2-0-1
FCV over PDA in final.
When are the rest of flights going to be listed ?
PL Listed as an EDP league and PA State Champ (U13). I think they look at U13 results no? Since Championship is the only flight we know for sure. 1. PDA (tie breaker)2. CASL3. BRYC4. Florida1. EM 2. FCV3. PL (tie breaker)4. NJ WildcatsEM Champions.
Could be right about State Cup being U13, but PL did win their fall league. PDA looks like they have an easier run than EM.
Mallory Pugh is going to bypass college for a professional contract with the U.S. Women’s National Team, according to a report from soccerwire.com on Friday. These are the type of players of USSF Girl's Development Academy will benefit. The players that want to play pro will benefit from 4 training sessions a week and playing club soccer for 10 months a year. I just hope the NWSL can get stronger. Would love to see them expand to maybe 16 teams in D1 and then rebrand the WPSL as NWSL2 with pro/rel. There is not a lot of money to pay and with the federation paying the NT players an easy move to make. I believe this would grow the sport as you can have strong Youth Clubs under proper management going pro. Just a pipe dream on my part, I know.
So what team got robbed and didn't get in F1?
Possible F1 candidates? 1776OakwoodPACPenn UnitedBethesda SCHarford ThunderI'm sure I missed someone. Not sure if any of these teams would show better results than Wildcats, PL or BRYC.
Like the Wildcats, none of those teams are close to F1 material on this event.
OMG - Harford Thunder? Penn United?? PAC ??? 1776 ??? Not even close you need to get out a little more my friend and leave you PAGS memories behind - these teams are not even close. Since you love PAGS so much how come no LVU and YMS? Shoot straight if you want to play this game. I would could have made an argument for Bethesda and Oakwood.But Since the NJ Wildcats beat Bethesda and NEFC beat Oakwood 7-0, F1 teams don't lose by 7 to other F1 teams. I think the 8 F1 teams are the only options.
They did a good job. Even though its a safe bet to say Wildcats, PL, and BRYC will be making the early exit who else is a better choice to fill F1? Maybe Bethesda over PL if any.
Bethesda would get crushed by big scores at Jeff. They played in a lower bracket at Wags, barely getting by Severna Black and Hulmeville (another powerhouse PAGS team). The top eight are in F1. The next three brackets are the fun ones to talk about.
Never know about personnel changes and guests, folks
DV Academy is best Futsal team and DCFA is a very close 2nd.
Yeah that's great. With this knowledge, maybe they will cancel all outdoor full sided soccer. May as well throw away those cleats folks.
Who the heck are DV Academy and DCFA?
Any news from NSCAA?
They didn't get a lot done , they were watching American football all weekend..
What a disappointment ODP is.
You're just catching on to that? It's a money making waste of time.
When will rest of flights be posted for Jeff?
So who won the big futsal championship this weekend?
13 NJ teams at Jeff this year. What should we put the win total at? I would say 14 wins is a safe bet? That's with PDA Storm winning three games.
8:50Setting the bar quite high aren't you? :)
Lets hear the complete list, 8:50Would be interesting to hear who you have with zero wins.Jeff is just a way to get sharp for the more important tilts anyway, isnt it?
More important tilts? If your an F5 or below, how many important tilts are there? The Toms River Great Rec Team Shootout?
Manhattan Kickoff , we will give it another shot this year.
Oh, my bad, 1:56I will rearrange the order of importance of all U14 games so that Jefferson Cup is on top.
3:13 Isn't really an issue. Besides, Tom's River gives out great medals with half time juice boxes and orange slices. Your team will love it.
New Jersey teams at Jeff1. PDA Storm - 3 wins2. PDA Ajax - 0 wins 2 ties3. PDA Dragons - 1 win4. PDA Shore - 1 win5. Wildcats - 0 wins 1 tie6. Galaxy - 2 wins7. JS Boca - 1 win8. FC Copa - 0 wins 1 draw9. NJ Rush Blue - 2 wins 10. STA Morris - 1 win11. NJ Crush - 1 win 1 draw12. TSF Academy - 1 win 1 draw13. NJSC Sounders - 1 win Looks like NJ tallies 14 wins at Jeff. Could be 15 if Storm runs the table.
Wouldnt be too badMaybe we should tally up win percentges by state
Go NJ moms!
9:25, you got me, I have thought about this link for over 10 seconds, and I simply cannot understand what is interesting about it, please enlighten me.
is it true d1 schools are starting to give out futsal scholarships? lol
I scared to even open it. Anything that has -Gender -Age-Clean-Button in the title, I'm staying away from.
1030 why the mock on futsal it's not for everyone but for those that do it, it's still part of developing a player's mind and awareness during the off season. Sorry that your daughter has a hard time doing it.
Many angry moms and dads whose daughters aren't performing...
Yes, I'm sure they are very angry that little Susie just can't seem to pick up the finer points of futsal, a game designed to kill time in a gym while it is too cold to play soccer outside, thus allowing clubs to claim "year long training". Go ahead, tell me my kid isn't good at futsal, and that I don't know anything about soccer, blah blah blah.
9:25Championship Round RobinSACSevernaPACOld Dominion ExtremeBeach FC
It is funny to watch dump and chase kids try to play futsal.
Dump and Chase kids can benefit from futsal because that big, fast forward can learn the advantages of more 1v1 and stay keen on quick thinking during the off-season. Yes they may not shine on a futsal court but can shine on a outdoor field. Two different styles of play but ultimately need to learn all aspects of the game to be successful later.
Its funnier watching over the top parents scream and yell while their kids are playing futsal. Some of the players that are great at futsal, are not the best ones playing outdoors. A lot more ground to cover and a lot more chances to be exposed. Futsal is a good winter time activity that has training value, but it is also another great way for sport complexes to garner revenue. Just put the words "Regional" or "National Championship series" and start counting the dollars.
Futsal is great over the winter. It's the parents that have their kid playing futsal each week, participating in indoor leagues, attending trainings, ect. over the winter months all at once. Basically the ones living through their child and pushing unrealistic goals on them. Its what their kid "wants" though they'll tell you.
Sorry your daughters didn't make the futsal teams
11:45What are supposed to learn from this? Where is this?
Sorry to disappoint but not the case. Sorry I offended you. You must be THAT parent.
4:26, really, predicting wins and losses, you have definitely lost your mind and you absolutely do not get sports at all.
All good. Your daughter is probably the star point guard on school basketball team and doesn't have time for futsal anyway, with all the power train, private tutoring and all...
Any player who trains more than my daughter is overdoing it and is at risk of burn out and injury and has crazy parents who are trying to live through their kids accomplishments.Any player who trains less than my daughter is not committed enough and should probably not play travel soccer.
I think 2:31 has got the facts straight. Funny!
How did PL parent enjoy the tournament?don't let some idiot bad mouthing futsal keep you from posting. Re the brackets set for the Wildwood reg. Tournament yet.Can't wait! Soccer looks boring after watching that all weekend.
Winter update:The girls have been working on some new goal-scoring-dances, you know the kind, like on TV. Personally, I really like the second one, its different, but still classy. Face it, everyone wants to do a little f-u dance to the other team, and their parents, no?
PL parents now involved in futsal controversy? Very glad my kids club is far enough away that I don't have to worry about any of those parents showing up at tryouts.
IF PL does futsal who cares at least they are still doing things to keep their players minds keen and to be honest its good for conditioning during the winter months. Remember we got another month+ to go to see a single outdoor game.
Thanks PL parent.
433 They must be doing something right for Jeff Cup to put them in Top bracket once again even after a few players left. So until I see a drop off in their achievements, Kudos to the club. How did they do this weekend anyway?
Wins and loses are irrelevant. Does your daughter play like a pro? If not, pick another hobby.
PL failed to reach the semi finals at Spirit and WAGS. Unless they can manage to have a better showing at Jeff they will not be an F1 team anymore.
4DCFA cleaned house this weekend. DCFA Cruzerio beat DCFA Santos in the final.https://htgsports.net/scoring/ScheduleT.aspx?EventID=4351&division=14761&Pool=0&Team=0
526 Can you translate Futsal teams to Outdoor team from that link?
What players make up Morgan and Heath? DCFA is out of Millersville Md and Nook is out of Lancaster Pa.
Daughter did not play futsal or indoor this season, at least for first session of winter play. Was experiencing pain in both shins after each game during fall season and it was not getting any better. I do think futsal's great for teaching defensive containment skills as well as foot work and passing. But like some of the bloggers have mentioned, I do worry about it being played after a heavy workload of first school and then club soccer, and the physical effects it may have. I do know that there was two PL teams at Regional futsal this weekend, but not sure how they did overall. Both the last two bloggers were correct in describing PL. Since playing U13 at Spirit and getting to the finals, players have done well to maintain an F1 status as a non ecnl team. I think even BRYC and the Wildcats have dropped down to F2 at one or two tournaments and then have come back even stronger as an F1. Often wondered if that wouldn't have been a good thing for our team tooAlso agree that if PL does not show well at Jeff (at least 1-1-1), the team will become an F2 as they finish out the year. Last game against the Wildcats was a tough, well played physical game. At Jeff both teams will be in dire need of a win this time as well. Should be fun. Enjoy the Indoor play and futsay guys, soon there will be dreaded boyfriends and too much makeup. PL ParentSorry spell checker, might have missed a comma or two. I only good at driving kids to and from practice and games.
I like your straight talk 6:04. Much rather read your posts than your angry defensive counterparts. Good luck to your team. It would be nice to see them pull off a great win against FCV and EM. Would make for some excitement.
So which team is the better team? FCV or E. Meadow?PL Parent
Midfield mostly, but she floats around, you need to follow her. They are both excellent teams, you guys are going to have a long weekend, sorry dude. However, its sports, so anything can happen. Good luck.
Agreed. Have to play in peak performance to beat either teams.
Player is in high school, should be playing at u15.
Looking forward to the outcome of that EM vs FCV game.
However the weekend goes, our parents will get a chance to see some great soccer being played. Have been told that PDA might be the top team there and since we've never seen them play, I'm sure our players and parents will try to watch one of their games in between ours. Always interesting to see what makes teams so consistently strong. PL Parent
Honest question, if PDA is so good, why did they lose 3 games in ECNL and are behind MatchFit, who lost two games at Bethesda?
Actually Nook = PL + PAC + PU.
Bad day? Who knows but PDA is a much better team. Jeff Cup has 3 top dogs which any could take first in, PDA, FCV, EM.
We just them. Nook's top futsal team is all but maybe one PL player. Their B team may be a mixture.
Just for perspective PDA is 0-1 with a GD -3 against F1 teams, and 1-1-1 against F2 teams this fall.
BRYC could be the surprise team once again.
9:40You are correct. A team = 5 PL, 1PAC, 1PUB team is more diverse.Who were you with? Some real talented players at 2 tournaments this weekend. Some of those teams have played a lot of futsal and it showed.
BRYC has no chance. The only teams that have less of a chance than them is PL and Wildcats. Just being realistic.
Nook also was at the MLK Union Futsal tournament yesterday as well. Good to see they are getting in the playing time. What are these other ECNL teams doing thus far this winter.Anyone know how they did yesterday as well?
ECNL teams are training. Should they be doing something else?
JGS beat SJEB in final at MLK tounrament
BRYC beat CASL at WAGS before taking FCV to PKs in the final. They beat MF 2-0 at Bethesda while PDA only beat then 2-1. So why is it they have no chance?
Isn't it fair to say CASL has less of a chance than BRYC then. Of course since CASL beat FL elite 2-0 I will assume they have even less of a chance than CASL.Seems any team that can take FCV to PK's has a shot at beating them. FCV is better than any of these overrated NE ecnl teams. And what does that say about the Wildcats who beat BRYC, or PL who beat the Wildcats? Looks to me these are some pretty evenly matched teams, well except for PDA who looks to be evenly matched with the F2 teams.
The F1 games are almost always low scoring affairs and seem to be decided by one defensive mistake or a sudden breakaway. We often talk about how fast the strikers are, or how great a teams offensive skill set is. But all these teams have defenses that don't allow many shots on goal and keepers that save the day. The teams that will be in the F2 bracket are very good teams, but often inconsistent on the defensive end.
Looks like the NJ soccer blog got VA peeps wound up.
The "excitement" is in the game itself, not the result, 6:27Getting to play in top flight is an honor - and can be rewarding even in a 3 losses and out scenario
Lol sounds like someone who knows their daughters team doesn't stand a chance.
The forever unanswered question...Why are NJ parents such a pleasure?
Offense wins games, defense wins championships.
7:24's post has merit and it is an honor to be included in the F1 grouping. But I like 6:24's scenario better. BRYC probably was pretty fired up at WAGS when they made their run.
PL is on fire, will win the bracket and go to finals, ending in PK shootout vs EM. PL win! End of story!Sorry NJ!
You can tell when your team(s) is on top when they are talked about the most on this blog. In my opinion the BYC change will help teams like Wildcats and PL the 1st year if they have a core group of players with chemistry that have stuck together the past few years it will help them transition better v all the teams with 50% change.
10:02 - who cares? starting now (u15) it's more about the players than it is about the teams as the recruiting process starts. team results no longer very important, unless you are the doc trying to keep the club prominent. but even then it is more about where the players go to school.
Is that what PDA Storm and Match Fit plan on doing - have "50% change"?US Soccer says the new age groupings are not meant to break up teams, but to give players a chance to play upWont most teams remain almost identical - with current U14s simply skipping U15 and playing U16 starting in September, by that guideline?Why would Penn Legacy and Wildcats treat anything differntly than other clubs? Exolain yourself. And if yo have info on how specific clubs will move forward - please share
Most teams are already putting out the statement that an 02 playing up must be considered in the top 5 in order to do so. Where as Penn Fusions 01's make up a larger contingent their team, PL is just the opposite. Its 02 group would do well on their own without the aid of the 01's (keeper is an 02 also). Not sure of the Wildcats situation, but its probably something similar. So how does this effect teams like PDA which has multiple teams? Will this allow players from Ajax and Dragons a better opportunity to play with the parent club?
PL team is made up of 60 to 70% 02's. If they follow the BYC rules those girls should be U15 next year well the rest of the team will be U16. Maybe the PL parents will see the writing on the wall and move their kids to PAC a year before the girls DA comes to them. PU parent
So the gifted Penn Legacy '02s are afraid to move to U16 next year?
A player is easier to recruit playing age as a standout. Unless you can easily say your kid is better than the girls playing who are a full year older and would get more time than them on the field. If that's the case is that club/team very good? If not they probably won't be playing in showcases/tournaments that many recruiters will even be at. Playing age is best unless they're THAT good (realistically-not just in daddy/mommy's eyes).
Many of the players AREN'T a full year older.As college freshmen (and of course even as HS freshmen) our girls compete againt players sometimes FOUR years older.
Penn Legacy is so afraid - jeez - think how frightened they will be in 2 months facing East Meadow.Not too late to ask to drop down.
PU parent...10:45What's PU doing with BYC?How come you know so much about PL?Switching over to PL?
Right 12:02And the college coaches are pounding down the doors to come watch high school soccer players!!!Maybe after they've developed interest at a showcase tournament...
12:02 are you talking about PL because I'm not. Im talking in general. If I were you I'd find a better club no matter what though. I've never heard of or have seen a team at a top event from that club, other the 01's.
12:04, why do you keep brining up the Hotshotz, are you with that club??
Sure. What would you like to know?
As far as I know PDA and MFA have not give parents/players guidance but will be doing so by the end of the month I'd expect. Waiting on ECNL for some things I'd assume.
Yes many of the ECNL clubs are awaiting direction especially for the U15 group as many teams will be carrying girls in HS and 8th grade. I think they are trying to determine if there will be a U15 Fall season as in the past there has not.
PF holding Birth Year "ID" clinics in the next few weeks to determine who/what they have to work with before tryouts
10:15 - Agree 100% - who cares? It's ALL about the players!!!! Keep believing you need to be in top flight. The kid's team just has to play in an event where the school can send someone there to watch. Last time I checked no one is recruiting a team or player based on a team's trophy chest. I think Coaches go see the kids that have contacted them. SO if they have a list of 50 players at Jefferson, they are going to see those 50 players.Just play the game and have fun and let us fools ramble on about GS and rankings and flights, what else do we have to do?GS 4 Life
Well, if you believe the adage, GS4 - that playing better teams makes a player better -then getting rewarded with higher flights is what we all would prefer.To a certain extent the flighting IS of importance.
GS points have been BS for many years...
1:59 Indeed playing better teams helps you improve. But when it comes to flights that is out of everyone's control, so why worry if the team won? Did your kid play well? If not why? Was it them? Bad day? or are they on the wrong team?GS points have always been BS but they were fun. This is the last year to enjoy them, because for most of our kids the Showcase years are here. You want to play good team ball and showcase your skills win or lose, I agree 2:05What I care about is where my kid is playing next year? CASL, Disney, Jefferson & PDA would be perfect and if they also go to Surf that's magic.But this is my opinion.GS 4 Life
that is a lot of traveling money and if you throw Surf in there you are out of my league. I am pretty sure my daughter will not be going west to college so why go to Surf?
Well, flights for Jefferson have changed a little bitTSF up to third flight (top 40)
For those attending Ultimate Cup and even Jeff Cup, Richmond about to get slammed with snow and it's only January. Better hope Spring comes early.
Yea because only west coast colleges will be there..? Recruiters do travel. Especially to big events where top players will be.
Could you please provide a link to where you saw TSF up to f3?I dont see it. Thanks
TSF went down from the 4th grouping (Flight 3, second division listed) to the 5th.STA went from 5th to 4th May have been to prevent an STA-Crush final
No worries, 4:31. Someone's just been trolling PL parents lately. If you ignore it, the posts will disappear.
Does anyone have an explanation for why the NSA Twisters are still in the 2nd flight? That team can't even make the top flight in crappy Illinois town tourneys so how do they warrant 2nd flight at JeffCup? If the tourney director doesn't change this, look for CFC to beat them by 10 and Frederick might even score two goals in a game.
I think their will be adjustments in some of the flights. Wasn't the Richmond Strikers and a couple other clubs dropped down last year?
Well, no - regarding Penn Legacy - didnt some yahoo claim that all the best players are '02s?So why send the subpar '01s ahead without their great mates?Like I said - '02s are scared.Maybe these precious '02s can repeat 8th grade as well so that they dont have to be challenged too soon.
Why is the 16th ranked team in Region 1 in the 9th flight? I blame a conspiracy of STA/Crush/EM/Albertson and my ex-wife for this situation. Its pretty obvious, someone doesn't like us very much, but we love everyone!
Heard you wuz usin ringers, North - is all
Nah, he is talking about NYSC, I believe.Funny.TSF used to hover in that neighborhood. Seems they have changed placesTeam I dont get is NJ Rush
5:33 your attack on Pl's 02 players is sad and pathetic. How about you let everyone here know where your kid plays and we'll go from there. Not sure why your so obsessed with PL's players, but try to stay off their snap chat and instagram account you sicko. You make crazy 1776 mom look like Mother Teresa. Your on here all the time making direct comments about players on different teams, and all it does it make your insecurity shine through. Its a shame that your parents didn't think you were worth spending time with, maybe if they had you wouldn't have become such a worthless ass. I do feel bad for your daughter though, but pretty sure by this time your spouse has been long gone.
How did you get all that from 5:33's post? I must've missed a post or or two along the way. Some fiestiness to end the evening!
Where are the flights located ?
Sorry. 5:33 hates that fact her daughter has become insignificant on her current team and now is in constant attack mode. Usually I ignore it, but I hate when it becomes a personal attack on players.
10:57 here you go, http://www.gotsport.com/asp/directors/tournament/vieweventteamscleanb.asp?EventID=46791&Group=Girls_14
Awesome back to business parents. lol
Absolutely, and with enough posts gone that we might make it to Jeff Cup. Looks like no recent changes in the top three flights.Looking ahead, which is the better Memorial Day tournament - Delco or PDA? What's the basis for your preference?
By memorial day it will be a lot of different teams as tryouts will be completed for BYC and many will look to see how the new makeup will impact their choices. I can see a lot of guess playing everywhere so to me it doesn't matter Delco or PDA. Gotta see who registers where.
Last year was PDA 10:25 - South Shore Select was F2 and Finished in 3rd just above Ajax in a 4 team division. But since PDA took down their tournament from GotSoccer removing the points and since their top team didn't even show up - I'm curious how many teams show up to this year's event.PDA Showcase would blow Delco away but it's an invitational for this.
It's funny that PDA took down the GS points, I see many more teams flock to Delco. Both are ECNL clubs so I'm sure Delco will attract the ECNL clubs from the south(NY to S.C.), PDA will continue to attract the New England clubs. So there should be good competition at both.
Thank you Mr. Admin for taking the time to get the blog up and running. Maybe it'll be a kinder gentler blog this time?
Yes, after I sent him 2 emails about it, you should be thanking me!!

When yous ay top 3 Jeffereson flights do you mean top 5 divisions?Are Elite and Superior treated as equals?I do see STA moved from 5th division to third. TSF went from 4th to 5th - and someone moved from 3 to 4.
Let’s all be honest for once, who really cares about any flight other than the one your daughter’s team is playing in.
2:24I think you mean Are Superior orange and Superior black equal - same with Elite orange and black
let's look at NYCSL NPL 2015-2016.The best team in the league, 1st place by 7 pts is placed by jefferson cup in F5, while STA who is 7 points behind and lost head 2 head to NJ Crush is in F3.

FacebookTwitterPinterestGoogle+EmailPrintMoreUS Club Soccer update on U.S. Soccer's birth-year registration mandateCHARLESTON, S.C. (Jan. 25, 2016) - As previously announced in September 2015, US Club Soccer will be implementing the U.S. Soccer Federation’s birth-year registration mandates on Aug. 1, 2016.This means that all youth competitions beginning Aug. 1, 2016 will be based on age group cut-offs of January 1 for each age group. Due to additional interpretative changes by U.S. Soccer since this announcement in how competition age groups are labeled, US Club Soccer and other sanctioning bodies are now clarifying the age group structures for the 2016-2017 season.Beginning Aug. 1, 2016, all youth soccer sanctioning organizations will form competitions based on birth-year age groups.Beginning Aug. 1, 2016, US Club Soccer will be using the following birth-year “labels” for competition, based upon the season in which competition ends. For example:Players born from January 1, 1998 – December 31, 1998 will be labeled as Under-19s.Players born from January 1, 1999 – December 31, 1999 will be labeled as Under-18s.Players born from January 1, 2000 – December 31, 2000 will be labeled as Under-17s.For any birth year, the age group “label” will be determined by subtracting the year in which the players participating in the competition were born from the year in which competition ends.
Platinum is all F4, no difference between the flights in that group.
I agree 5:31 but how is STA Elite on u14 body of work?All over the place NPL Northeast Girls League. 1st place team in F3 while 3rd place Dragons in F6 in spite of only dropping head 2 head 1-0.

5:33, please don’t get me started on their decision making, a little too much moonshine in my opinion.
Don't understand EDP placements at jefferson either. For starters they took the D2 North team South Central and placed them F4 a flight ahead of TSF the 1st place team D1 North. Also NJ Wildcats galaxy as the 2ndplace team in 3flights ahead of TSF and 4 points below. They have 1 point more than Ramapo who wasalsof1 at Stars but are 7 flights aheadof them. Not sure why so many teams in Superior from D1 Central as the NJ Wildcats NPL had a +24 goal differential they Scored 6on LVU and 4 on the Ukranians. South has the biggest head scratcher of them all, Calvert in 5th out of 8 has only 8 pts but is F3 Elite (What) they have 1 ptmore than Boca who's in F10.1st Division NorthF5 Superior 18pts TSF ACADEMY 01/02G F2 Elite 14pts NJ WILDCATS GALAXYF9 Classic 13pts RAMAPO VALLEY SC TORNADOS '02 F11 Premier 8 pts HBC SPARK 1st Division CentralF1 Championship 21pts NJ WILDCATS AVERBUCH-NPL F4 Superior 18pts NEW JERSEY RUSH 01 GIRLS BLUEF4 Superior 15pts LEHIGH VALLEY UNITED LVU 01 GIRLS F5 Superior 8pts UKRAINIAN NATIONALS BLASTERS BLACK F7 Platinum 7pts REAL SOUNDERS F9 Classic 4pts PDA SHORE FUSIONF10 Classic 2pts FC COPA ACADEMY G01 NPL LIMA 1st Division SouthF1 Championship 24pts PENN LEGACY FC 01 BLACKF2 Elite 19pts 1776 UNITED FC XTREME F7 Platinum 14pts HFC READY '01 F6 Platinum 11pts HARFORD FC UNITED THUNDER F3 Elite 8pts CESC CALVERT CREW WHITE F9 Classic 7pts RAGE SC '01 ATHLETICAF8 Platinum 7pts PIPELINE BLACK F10 Classic 7pts JERSEY SHORE BOCA JR FC FUSION 2nd Division NorthF4 Superior 22pts SOUTH CENTRAL PREMIER SPIRIT
Hardest thing to believe is how the best U14 in PA is in the last bracket?
I agree 6:30 Jefferson cup awarding point chasers. The top 2 teams are in F11 while the 2 teams that didn't honor their commitment to their league were rewarded with F3 & F4 spots.

Dude - stop filling the blog with non conversational gobbledygook
More changesPenn Fusion NPL dropped to 5thFC Carolina Alliance Green up to 4th
Some of us like that gobbledygook. How many useless response post just like yours and The Spell Check Nazi eat up space one here? At least the Spell Check Nazi is good for those us that are grammatically challenged. And wouldn't we be lost without GS 4 Life's listings of gobbledygook and other pertinent information or Soccer Nut's musings? Now stop wasting space by posting about wasting space.
@ 10:14 - Very well said, and generally well spelled, BTW. Good post.I only comment on bad spelling when it pertains to insulting another poster's intelligence. Add this post as wasting space as well. Are we saving space here for a cure for any particular disease?
Looks like Penn United will be dropped into the next bracket in the small hope Penn United coach will not feel he is being cheated against that type of competition.
So, the Region I league 0 the Red is top bracket and Blue is bottom, right?
Not sure I want to waste the money traveling to Jeff now team down to F4 after beating teams somehow placed in higher flights. What a joke/waste of time/waste of $-
I hear you. I can count 4 teams that we have beaten in the last year that are flighted higher. That being said, I'm sure will get very good competitive games.
Well, the higher flighted teams cant go undefeated. I am sure your team lost to some lowlies as wellCheers - hope we all get good weather and decent teenage officiating.

Unless your in F1 does it really matter what flight at Jeff Cup, the point is for the team to travel and seem different teams correct? Next year is showcasing anyway.
Yep. 1:30Jefferson is just a tune up tournamentGte the touches for all,, see where you are at re: personnel (in shape/out of shape - still not quite back from injury/fully ready for comp, got stronger, reinvested themselves/fell back, etc)Who knows - some may be trying a new formation as well. A new process re: subbing...... or other nuances.Some could have even changed head men/women on their staff over the winter - or added to staff with a new set of eyes.Early spring snap back to competition is what it is. I dont know any not looking forward to it.
Given the lack of communication with the ECNL since the task force dispersed 15 months ago, it seems unlikely the two are merging outright, which gives the federation’s announcement a heightened glow of anticipatory radiance. However dramatically, the state of girls soccer development in the U.S. is about to change. We're about to find out how much.The above was published today. It looks like US Soccer chose to go their own way and not work with ECNL to form the new DA but in fact repalce ECNL at the top level of development.
Driving 6+ Hrs. to VA to play weaker teams is not my idea of a good use of time or $. And spring tune up for what exactly?
How is Calvert F3? Have the won anything at all this year? Heck go back to last year even. Don't see a single impressive win.
Who knows.. Depends on how controlled the costs are. Unless it is accessible to more talent than can afford the ENCL, it feels like same story just different channel.
Majority of ECNL players will slide over to DA.
Sounds like you are a tired parent on your way our 2:28Good luck in your next endeavor
Some of these clubs complaining about their flight have also lost all of the games they played in the last two years. Maybe this is why you have been put down so low. And just maybe they use their own tournament to measure teams and not some easy leagues that some teams play in.
2:28 Sounds like your a little upset about your teams flight position? Because if your team was in F1, you wouldn't be bitching about the competition (unless your PDA or FCV). I think Jeff did a decent job with their placements and keeping the brackets fairly competitive. Someone posted about Jeff officials bracketing teams higher because they might know certain teams, how did that work out for Richmond last year? There are always teams that are flighted lower or higher than they should, usually its just comes to simply showing well while your there and climbing up the ladder next year. Unless your PAC, the ladder must have been a little slippery. Does anyone know if Jeff even takes league play into account?
3:47 I don't think so, while doing my research, I noticed a few teams in lower flights even thought they were higher in the league table and won a head to head game. GotSoccer a big part of these flights. Jeff just rewarding teams that played a lot which is cool.
@ 3:47Decent job is a stretch at best. Would prefer ping pong draw at this point just to play some different teams.
If Jeff could somehow just have five brackets, I think you would see a lot less bitching about where teams are slotted. But with so many teams, is that an impossibility?
It pretty much IS 5 groupings of teamsGroup 1 is 8 teams - championshipGroup 2 is 16 teams - eliteGroup 3 is 16 teams - superiorGroup 4 is 24 teams - platinumGroup 5 is 28 teams - classic
Thank you! I knew I wasn't the only person who understood this. When you realize that different colors do not denote different flights but just seperate groups within the same flight, the placements make more sense. Of course some will still see flaws but you can't please everyone. All in all a good job by Jeff.
The Federation's move here is nothing more than a power play against the Clubs. They are not happy that the ECNL has marginalized ODP and this is the payback.
And within each group you have an order a,b,c
10:46 i disagreeODP is a USYSA program why would the USSF pick a side?The USSF sees the $$$$ don't kid yourself. They know all the great players that picked the ECNL because it was the top league will also pick the girls DA if their club isn't included.I wonder if the clubs were contacted by the USSF already?
