U13G / U13 Girls Youth Soccer

U13G  / U13 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.

Says they gave too much weight to state cup champs esp from weak states. Relegation next yr will sort it out. Sachem & YMS move up, maybe Calvert joins in.

if your daughter could make an ECNL club you wouldn't be on here bashing them. you would just be saying 'to each there own"

but continued bashing shows your insecurity in spades.

remember its just soccer.

You people are too funny. Again, you do not need to like it but you are out of your mind if you do not think ECNL is by far and away the best league to be in. People, just look at history. It is not even close. And look at the FULL team college commitments. Impressive. Again, you may not like it and want to bash, but it has worked pretty damn well. Region 1 will not even be close as these girls move forward and get older. That is just reality... So no need to bash as you really do not have any stats to prove otherwise.

Anonymous said...

Not bashing, actually think the ECNL was a great concept. Just trying to make you aware there is great soccer being played outside of your bubble, and it's producing some of the best players in the country.

Tell me this, do you really think the top 8 players from YMS couldn't walk into FC Bucks tryout and replace half their squad? 1776 and Continental, same thing. Think if the top of PL went to PF they wouldn't make it? Calvert and the MD ECNL teams. Sachem/Athletico the LI squads? I'd bet PDA and MF would take The top Wildcat players in a heartbeat. You're the one who said our kids couldn't make your precious ECNL team but you sound like a fool(unless you know who our kids are, in which case you would sound like even more of a fool). Of coarse you said your D could take mines place anyday. How would you possibly know that. I'm sure your kid could make our team but I've seen plenty of ECNL girls who couldn't. The arrogance you display is what turns many off from the ECNL BTW.

Anonymous said...

You should worry more about showcasing your daughter than how good your team happens to be.

I believe that was the context of the message.

And no I don't know who your daughter is and i am sure she is a good enough player maybe has been ID and has been playing up like my daughter but i doubt because those girls who have the goods, parents are more concerned about the next step for their daughter rather than how many tournament wins a team has outside the State of NJ.


Anonymous said...

Not arrogance..... Proven track record. How many people every year at U13 think the same thing you do as their team and new league and what always happens?? ECNL prevails as the top league. I do not believe that more than 1-2 players on any of the non ECNL jersey teams would make the current teams. PA is more even. It is just that ultimately, the ECNL is the league to be in and will have by far and away the best talent. Again, this is proven year in and year out..... And ZERO wrong with staying with current team. Just not right for you to come on here saying it is not the best league. Sorry, but it is!

Sachem has a history of playing down.

ecnl has only been around a few years.
You act like it has been around for a long time.
Just not true and youth soccer has always been fluid.
Just the latest craze.
I guess this is your first experience with youth soccer so you assume it has always been the same, but that is not so.

Anonymous said...

the comment by 4:52 might win the award for most idiotic comment on this blog. So you are saying the bottom six on your ECNL teams are equal or better than the top six on other NJ and PA teams, and that coaches wouldn't take them if they tried out? I'm not going to say anymore. Except try to think about how stupid that statement is.

Kinda says it all:

"PDA is proud to announce the graduating class of 2015 and their college commitments.
PDA is honored to be recognized by Top Drawer Soccer after being awarded the 'IMG recruiting title for 2015'. This is an award presented to the club that has the most recruits placed in DI programs from the IMG top 150 players. PDA is privileged to receive this award and will continue to provide the platform for our players to develop and progress to the college ranks."

Just looked it up, very impressive. I sort of doubt they all got $ though, at least not for soccer. Academics maybe, but hey if I'm wrong let me know I will be even more impressed.

Also if you and 9:00 are going to get in a pissing contest over which club is better, start listing Nat team players. I am curious.

And don't worry, we all know MF wins in the class category.

Yes the bottom 6 on my team would take the starting spots from the kids on your team.

Hard to hear I know- but no matter what you say, i know its true.

don't hate -appreciate!

Anonymous said...

And when they arrive at those top programs they will find that half their new teammates( all of whom are just as talented as they are) came from non ECNL clubs, and no one will care. A larger majority will have played OPD by the way. Really guys, get over yourselves. Truth is a year from now the ECNL will be history and the new DA program will be the top of the pyramid anyway.

Anonymous said...

Go on PDAs website to see list of National Players. Also very impressive. Just goes to show that it's the club and the teams year in and year out.

Anonymous said...

Are those the same bottom 6 you keep blaming all your tournament losses on? Not 6:20, but unless your daughters team is the u-14 Nat dev squad you are so full of bs it's pathetic. I've seen a number of ECNL teams this fall and none of them have 6 players I would trade our top non ECNL players for.

Anonymous said...

Sachem Speed was NYE State Cup Champs and Region1 Champs and was placed in D2 and you say ECNL is a bubble? I guess Sachem doesn't have any ODP coaches or Region1 ODP coaches. They should never have been placed in D2 and you call ECNL a bubble.

You really think YMS & 1776 have that many solid players? So they all must be ODP players? What do they do when ECNL becomes a DA? Still play ODP? How many of them make PF?

No one here doubts that ECNL has legitimate top level players and very good to excellent teams. Its your over the top spoon fed "I'm blowing so much money it has to be great" blindness that takes away from the good side of ECNL. Great players and teams never have to talk about how great they are, simply because everyone know its. You have built your ECNL wall so high that you can't see the outside. I'm not a 1776 or YMS parent and I'm sorry to scare you, but unfortunately some of the players would make an ECNL team. Of course they would have to carry your daughters bag for the first months, but eventually they would play.

PL in the Colonial league not PAGS.
Only wins came against lesser teams.

2-2 RAGE FC PREMIER FREEDOM (NJ)
2-4 BRYC 01 ELITE (VA)
1-1 GREATER BINGHAMTON FC 01 SELECT (NYW)
0-2 GREATER BINGHAMTON FC 01 SELECT (NYW)

4-1 DOUG MILLER SOCCER DMS GU12 STEALTH (NYW)
4-2 PA CREW ACADEMY BLUE (PAW)
7-0 DOUG MILLER SOCCER DMS GU12 STEALTH (NYW)

Plus going by GS and the results they used to rank PL
How is a team so stacked give up 4 or more goals 2 times
or 3 or more goals 4 times?
Do you really think PL wouldn't have the same record as FCBucks or CFC Delco?
I think Boston, Stars, EM, MF, PDA, FSA, CFC would feast on PL - your best chance would be vs
WC, PF & Albertson. I bet that GD would be a big minus number.

2-4 BRYC 01 ELITE (VA)
1-2 CES CALVERT CREW WHITE (MD)
0-1 HARFORD FC UNITED THUNDER (MD)
1-5 FC REVOLUTION FORCE (PAE)
1-3 CREW JUNIORS CREW JUNIROS GOLD WEST (OS)
1-3 YMS

What is your obsession with Sachem Speeds placement. Can't believe a team that beat the might PDA only got placed in D2 of the Reg 1 league. I'm sure if Calvert applied they would have been in D1 if that makes you feel better.

Most of YMS could replace FC Bucks and most of 1776 could replace Cont. Or let me put it this way, most of the non ECNL players are better than the current ECNL players on those teams. So right there goes your theory of supposed ECNL superiority.

ECNL will not be the girls da, take it to the bank. Truthfully if the ECNL was doing such an incredible job why would the USSF feel the need to step in?

And you will find a number of players from all 3 PA ECNL teams who also play ODP,. If the ECNL has the best possible training and the best possible college placement why are they spending all that extra time and money?

You want to go back to 8v8 ?

Let's compare the " best team" in the ECNL vs PL by common opponents this fall at 11v11


PDA 2 -PFusion 0
PLegacy 5- PFusion 1

PDA 1-Calvert 2
PLegacy1-Calvert-1

PDA 2-Athletico 1
PLegacy 3--Athletico 0

See a pattern?

Just showing you that Region1 is a bubble as well.
Yeah they beat PDA to win region 1 championship and then got accepted to a Region1 League D2 Flight.
Yes they also won the NYE State Cup (NCS).
What are you saying they are not good and deserve D2?
or maybe you just need to know someone to get D1?
You know like region1 Staff or ODP Coach

Just calling like I see it.

So you are telling me State Cup and Region 1 Champion is worthy of D2?

10:40. You are kind of a silly bird and I do not know you, but have seen and heard from many like you. There is nothing wrong with you daughter being a mid-level support player on a good team. And there is nothing wrong with you ringing the team bell and being the team mouthpiece. But you have drank so much kookaid you actually believe your ignorance is truth. I have come across many parents like you over the years of doing this, and your type always takes it the hardest when the bottom falls out your on the outside looking in. But don't worry, there is always a new shiny object to chase.

PDA Storm has never given up 4 or more goals and they play much tougher teams than PL.

Wait didn't you guys get number 1 billing by GS by using those 8v8 games?

So you beat them 5-1 after they beat you 6-2.

Okay so we are sticking to 11v11 how many wins vs top teams? 2? AND all of a sudden you have arrived.

Zero wins at Jefferson? If they have a good Jefferson I'll change my toon and support them but I need to see that first.

Anonymous said...

I doubt you have come across many like me, I know I'm a tool and admit it - but you got me tied to the wrong team pal - wrong state by the way. But if it makes you feel better I'll be that guy.

Anonymous said...

Those were PL's 8v8 scores 10:36. Can you do me a favor and look up Penn Fusions U10 scores? It will help us decide where they should have actually been placed for Jeff Cup. Teams like Ukranians and FC Revs have fallen off since going 11v11, while others that played 8v8 as a learning tool to get ready for the big field, have become stronger. Can you take a moment and look up some U9 NJ futsal results for us also? It help find out why those pesky Wildcats got placed so high.

Anonymous said...

I haven't got you tied to any team or state and do not care 11:11. You are thinking you are way to important, because nobody cares where your from. But you are not alone, every league and team has koolaid drinkers just like you. Its not a bad thing as all leagues and teams need someone like you.

Anonymous said...

First of all Storm has never played a team "tougher" than Legacy

Second, no that #1 ranking was achieved after Spirit U, that was 11v11. And don't act like any of us have bragged about it or anything , you brought it up

I believe just this fall they have played 10 teams ranked in the top 1% of the nation incl 6 state #1's. As far as wins, sorry they "only" tied Calvert and the Wildcats but considering both team beat the so called best team in the ECNL last time they each met, I think that was pretty good.

And what's with the "zero wins at Jeffrrson" comment. Last yr they went 4-0 with a +14GD and this yr hasn't been played.

Why is anyone still talking about 8v8 results at this point? Wake up! Different game, teams have grown. If your still searching records from 8v8 I'd suggest finding a hobby.

10:49, just curious, who do you think wins the Elite Orange Flight at Jeff Cup?

Anonymous said...

PL 6k+ GS points from 8v8 tournaments. So if we were talking GS and #1 PAE team, then 8v8 very
much part of the conversation since we can't pretend they don't have those points.

PS. I agree with you about 8v8 different game- still doesn't change the facts that those points are used from those results so now your rankings first (how they are made) before you tell someone to wake up.

Wait they didn't even win their state cup and are Region 1 CL D1? Do they have ODP coaches at PL? How did a non state cup champion get placed in D1 and Sachem Speed NYE State Cup champion and Region1 Champion get placed in D2?

Dude, can you please shut-up about Atletico-light already, they are not a top team, NCS in NYE is a joke, and Sachem Speed have no forward momentum.

Anonymous said...

Answer me this question about Region 1 CL first?

So NCS is a joke? How did this team that won that joke of a league win the Region 1 Championships then? Is that also a joke of a tournament? Isn't that the prize for the champion of the Region1 Champions League?

Why are they D2? Keep deflecting - we know there is a secret club at Region1- helps teams and players don't pretend.

Anonymous said...

If you want to subtract off PL's 8v8 points then do the same for the rest of PAE as well. Fairly certain they will still be #1 but why do you care?

As far as Reg1, you will also see they dismantled the team that did win State champ twice since then. Pull with Reg 1 people, please? Certainly no where near what a club like YMS would have and they are still stuck in D2.

Face it, they deserve to be where they are, now go worry about your own team.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the info. That stinks for those teams. Do you think they might cancel the younger boys due to the wet conditions? Sat high 47 and Sunday high 57 but the fields will very wet.
Next weekend high of 53 in Richmond but 60% chance of rain. They actually have a chance of rain everyday in Richmond next week. If the girls play next weekend it will be on very wet fields.
Most of the games are played on grass fields correct?

Anonymous said...

Girls will play next weekend
Forecast for rain means nothing now, need to wait until it get closer to determine rain %

If there is no snow on fields which there won't be then they will play

Anonymous said...

Who cares who is #1? Who plays who? What league you play in? Who is better then someone else?
Why can't we all just be proud of our daughters for getting to the level they have gotten to and to where they will get. Who cares if someone else is better then them, that is life. Always someone better then you. There is such much negative talk on this blog. we should all be supporting each other. Hopefully in the next few years on this blog there will be talk about college ID camps and talking to college coaches about playing at their school. Who cares how much money someone gets to play college soccer? Most of the girls will not be playing after college.

A sloppy muddy mess next weekend.
That means make sure you bring enough towels because the girls will bring that mud into your cars.

For a lot of the teams it will be their 1st outdoor games of the year.

7:52 Doesn't Region1 CL have pro/rel??
So why isn't the
NYE State Cup Champion
Region1 Champ
EPYSA Premier League Champ
in D1, didn't the girls earn that? If they are over their head then they get relegated to D2 and if YMS wins D2 they replace them?

PL not a state cup champ
Region1 Colonial 3rd place (this is below Region1 Championships) how did they get D1?

No opinions here just facts based on results. Call me what you will - but lets not pretend Region1 doesn't have their own bubble.

I we are compare common opponents between PL and Storm- How Did PL get D1 and Sachem D2?

Anonymous said...

Why are you looking for some grand conspiracy my friend. You need to look no further than Sachems fall record. What was reg1 supposed to do with that? Again your not from Sachem, your kid doesn't play Reg 1, why do you even care?

Anonymous said...

PL and PF are the only two who could contend for best in PA. Both solid teams that probably will always flip flop results. Fact is, right now, PL deserves that top spot. You must be a PA dad who's daughters team was beaten by them and still haven't recovered. Take her to their tryouts if it bothers you so much.

Anonymous said...

Okay I will stop with Sachem Speed -
I think you see the point I was trying to make. Fall record has nothing to do with anything as NJ is the only state that had their NCS in the Fall - so Spring very much a factor. Why were they overlooked? The girls deserved the shot they played who was in front of them and won even beat a Pre-ECNL team.

Is 7:40 obsessed with PL or what? He just can't let it go! Now he's asking about the coaches credentials, should that be something only the parents should be concerned with? Or do want the Parents background checks too. Let it go 7:40! All this just because your worried that some Pags, NPL or some other ECNL player will take your daughters spot. Don't worry, she's safe where she's at. All high level player's need support players. But you keep doing your PL and YMS research. Since this is your new hobby, could you look up Classics and Rage. They have moved up a lot since going 11v11 too. I suspect foul play here.

Do they have ODP coaches at PL? Simple question.

Fact
PL did not win state NCS
PL finished 3rd in Region1 Colonial
PL is Region1 CL D1

Fact
Sachem won state NCS
Sachem won Region1 main tournament
Sachem won EPYSA Premier League
Sachemis Region1 CL D2.

What does your claim about me have to do with the above Facts. But you can deflect and attack me for pointing out these girls from Sachem appear to be out of the Region1 bubble.

But if you must know 7:40. Here is PL coaches credentials.
Started playing in England at Nottingham Football Club
Played on England Schoolboy's U18 National Team.
Upon coming to the United States was a two time All-American
NSCAA Master Coach and USSF National "A" Ranking
Can't remember what kind of car he drives, but I think he drinks his coffee black. I will try to get you his eye color and shoe size later so you can add to you PL collection. Is there anything else you need regarding PL?
Of course all Legacy teams have two coaches, so I will try to make sure you get more info on the other also (you don't need pics do you).

If you insist on bringing up last year state cup (8v8), Let's understand they were 11/12 year old capable of one bad day. They lost 2-1 to the Ukrainians. PF also lost 2-1 to HMMS in that same state cup run. Could those teams compete any other day with PL and PF? No way. Look at other past results from when PL played Ukrainians. It was no competition. So yes, bad days happen. PL and PF had to eat humble pie and watch 2 lesser teams compete for the State title. Move on.

9:00 Does PL as a club have ODP coaches ("Do they have ODP coaches at PL"). Didn't ask about your team's coach but thanks for sharing. looks like a good coach. So does the CLUB have ODP coaches? and you can share the other information as well if you like.

9:00 I am bringing that up because that appears to be a criteria region1 used.

I did move on - but you keep dragging me back in.

leave it and i will leave it. So don't answer my question about ODP coaches at PL.

PS. how does it feel to have all these posts about PL? The same way others feel like when they have to read NJ Wildcats, MF & PDA rants?

Anonymous said...

9:00

Its amazing that the excuse of 11 and 12 year old girls and any given day gets thrown around as an excuse( which i agree with you by the way) But on this blog PDA and Wildcats get no Mercy for losing or a tie of a game on any given day.

I know we want to grasp things as absolute but nothing is ever absolute in Any Sports at any age.

The best we can do is assign a rating for a top team as being a top team in the region.


And in my book these teams are top teams in the region

PL
PF
Matchfit
EM
Matchfit
Breakers
Virginia
Wildcats
NEFC
Crew


All of these teams have great players and can become monster teams in next two years if the right girls come into the program and if you have the right coach.


And yes-any given day between these teams

6:20pm yesterday... You are really out there if you think 6 kids from your team would make any top ECNL team right now. The only kids making those teams from outside clubs are the top 2 that would make any difference. May be tough to swallow but yes, only 2. And who cares about how much money these PDA and MF kids got to these schools. In the end they will have degrees from Stanford, Duke, UNC, BC, Princeton, Dartmouth, Georgetown, etc.... Who cares about the soccer after the 4 years of school. Stop being meathead soccer parents and get your kid in to the best academic school possible and move on....

PF is a middle of the road ECNL team right now. You must be a PA parent, probably a PL parent. I do not think PL has 6 players that would go to PF and make the team.
If so, then why not take the girls to try outs. If they make the team then great the girls will get to play against better competition which will only make them better.

Anonymous said...

PF beat MF this fall right? I will answer correctly and without your blind predjudice, of course PF is a top ECNL team. Kindly ask the PF parents on here whether or not PL has 6 girls who would make their team. One of ours made it and turned them down BTW, another was s starter and left another ECNL club to play for PL. Our kids don't leave because they are happy fool!

Anonymous said...

PF beat MF, Boston and EM. But had bad loss to Albertson and ties to Conn teams. so they were very inconsistent. They fizzled near the end of the season.

Why did the girl try out and then decline? Just to prove she can make it? Starter from another PA ECNL team? I think everyone can agree that doesn't mean anything.
So 1 to 2 girls can make the switch.

Anonymous said...

PF held there own dispute some of their top players being injured this fall, I would not be surprised if they made a play for the league championship this spring

And nope that players been with us from the beginning, won't speculate her motives, not my kid.

You've never seen us, have you? So your contention that only 1-2 of our girls would make it is pretty much just you talking out your ass as usual huh?

I will tell you we have a goalie, 3 defenders, 2 middies(one regional team), at least 2 wings, and the best damn forward in the game that would START on any ECNL team you name, the day they got there. And at least 3-5 more who would make it. You really know nothing, do you?

...and I hear they just gave Sky Blue a beat down in a friendly. Got to go see this wonder team play.

Maybe she realized the grass isn't always greener. Maybe her parents thought about driving over an hour 3 times a week to practice. U15 is where things start to matter, right? That's a big commitment to make before things start to matter. Who knows. Worry about your own kids.

I love how all these teams full of girls who could not possibly make an ECNL roster keep beating the ECNL teams. Weird? Maybe, just maybe, there's some talent out there that isn't in a ECNL uniform?

Anonymous said...

So you're saying if we had a group of 8 girls who could start on a u-13 ECNL team, they could put a beat down on Sky Blue. Either SB stinks or you are a fool!

Anonymous said...

PF had a pretty good defense. I am not sure you are right about the defensive players coming over. Do you only play 1 GK? All the ECNL teams play 2 GKs at this age. Does your 2nd GK let the goals in? Although, PF seemed to stop scoring goals so something happened there.
You do make it sound like you have an All-Star team. Too bad your girls will never be pushed against good teams when they older. They will never play PDA and only get 1 or 2 chances against other ECNL teams. So you better live on those games if you can beat them.

Anonymous said...

Your win now mentality has been proven year in and year out as the wrong way to go for the future. It is about where you will be when it counts. And the proven road is ECNL. Again just a small fact. Nothing wrong with winning now and if that is what you are looking for you will find a few good teams to play on..... BUT, you need to be prepared for what has been proven over and over again. ECNL is and will be by far the deepest league in talent to play in.

Anonymous said...

Are the ¨win now¨ players not improving?

What is your point exactly?

Anonymous said...

Not at the same pace as the others will. Again, just do not bash unless you can come on here and show proof that ECNL is not the best and always is by far and away the best come U15-17. You can always claim a win over one of these teams now but where do you want to be come U15-17. ECNL is the crystal clear spot as of right now.

Anonymous said...

so let me get this straight. If you team wins, its only in the name of development and you as an ecnl parent on this blog would never use it as a guide to gauge where your team is at? And most likely you yourself have never mentioned on here about your teams win over another (because its all about developmental at this age). So ECNL has this proven track record over 10 or 15 years? or is it more than that? ECNL is a very good program and a great idea as long as its sustainable and it very well may be. But top talent is top talent and in today's age of being able to market yourself through so many different avenues(video, recruiting services, etc). Its much easier to be found. If it was a top team only league, would they have excepted FC Bucks and Continental? Or is just a matter of ECNL trying to build a base in PA in the hope that more will follow, thus creating a separate league. I mean if they are willing to take add two bad teams, why wouldn't they four more that can't win either? Mo money, mo money, mo money.

Soccer Nut and anyone else (see not killing PL with this post)

I took your list of teams and took results at Major Tournaments
Disney, Spirit, Bethesda,
WAGS, Surff Cup, FC Stars
Discovery, Eclipse, CASL

Plus I took h2h match ups vs each other at Pre-ECNL League, EDP Cup, NEFC Kickoff. If anyone feels I missed teams please let me know and we can see how they did in F1 at these events.

I think from your list these teams deserve F1 billing for sure.

AVG 2.25 GP 08, W6, T0, L2 NEFC
AVG 2.13 GP 08, W5, T2, L1 PL
AVG 2.11 GP 09, W6, T1, L2 PDA
AVG 2.06 GP 16, W9, T6, L1 FCV
AVG 2.00 GP 08, W5, T1, L2 EM
AVG 1.85 GP 13, W8, T0, L5 Boston

However, I don't think any of us consider an avg of ~ 1.00 per game top teams. This is why I think these teams should be replaced with others. They had their shot now it's time for others. Although MF only has 3 games played that's not enough to take them out of F1 the others, I don't see them as F1 but i don't make the flights at these tournaments. I just post crazy comments

AVG 1.38 GP 13, W5, T3, L5 PF
AVG 1.14 GP 07, W2, T2, L3 Crew
AVG 1.00 GP 03, W1, T1, L1 MF
AVG 1.00 GP 09, W1, T6, L2 Wildcats

Must admit - prior to this exercise, I always had PF ahead of PL and it appears I was wrong. But Sachem should still be D1 :) over DE Rush. But they are not and life goes on.

Anonymous said...

Money is all the same so don't hide behind that. You pay just as much as an ECNL club if you add it all up... Just look at the commitments. EVERY kid on roster going to play. Speaks for itself. Can you do it on your own these days? Of course. But again, how do you knock the ECNL way. Black and white.... Good luck with your way and sorry to say but if your girls gets the nod one of these years to go to ECNL club, I think you will take it.....

Anonymous said...

Everyone always looks at CFC or Bucks as examples of bad teams that play in the ECNL. You dont kick a club out of a league because of a down year. These clubs are better at older ages. Does that mean kids come to these clubs at U15 or higher? Does that mean the girl that went and made PF at u13 but decided not to play comes back at u15 and stays?
Every league has bad teams but not every league has the top teams in the nation.

Anonymous said...

Hey 1:27

Maybe we should start intentionally losing games so our girls can develop as fast as these other teams?

Sorry, winning is the result of proper training. Not inspire of it. You think PL has a win now mentality you don't know jack. Unlike most of your teams who have good starters who play almost the whole time at set positions, PL just rotates starters, plays the kids in multiple positions, and let the chips fall. They win anyway!

But their probably right, I'msure all those girls playing in the us youth national league and on reg ODP teams will never get into a decent college. Too bad, my poor kid will have to rely on her brains instead I guess.

Anonymous said...

I don't think its just money with parents, although that is a big consideration. The time commitment is a huge thing and more important than the money factor (at least for us). No one is knocking Continental or Bucks on their performance. The question was would ECNL be willing to adopt four more teams with similar fortunes in order to expand the league further into PA? Even though the ECNL overall product would be diluted by taking teams that will struggle to find respect in a tough league. Your thoughts???

Anonymous said...

ECNL would take the whole Club not just a team. So at every girls age group they would play in the ECNL and have a NPL team. Just because PL at u13 is good, that doesnt mean their current u16 they would beat PF, CFC or Bucks.

Anonymous said...

Good point 3:10. And most age groups on most clubs do differ in play level. But I could see a club like Rage joining the ENCL. They would not have the driving issues other teams would have as they are close enough to all major highways out of Reading. It would still be a considerable drive for them, but nothing like teams west of them. And they are an improving club, especially their U13.

Anonymous said...

Rage? That club isn't going anywhere.

Anonymous said...

and you know because????? How many competitors are in there in their surrounding area? If FC Revs goes under, where are those girls going? Very few will be willing to make the commitment to Fusion, and that's only the best ones. So is your statement of Rage not going anywhere carry the same weight with Bucks and Continental because their U13's struggled. Rage is the club that would benefit the most from joining the ECNL. They would be on the outer fringe but the label would garner them many top players. I am not a Rage parent, but don't you think it would be a great fit for them?

Anonymous said...

Please. People have been talking about FC Revs going under for years now. Look up the qualifications needed to be an ECNL accepted club. Rage doesn't have those qualifications. Their U13 team is decent, not great, by the way.

I believe you about the qualifications and Rage not having it. Just stating it would be a great fit for them. As a former Rev yourself, you know how precarious that situation always is with that club. Last year they had to combine there "A" and "B" teams in order to have a enough to play. Their U11's through U14's won a total of 4 games in Pags. Despite your obvious dislike for Rage, they will keep getting better simply because the other option is so bad.

Why is it that everyone always complains about a dribbler being a ball hog? We need to nurture our potential creative #10s not turn them into 1 touch robots. I always hear derogatory comments aimed at creative players who are strong on the ball both on the field from players and from parents on the sideline. However interestingly rarely from the coach. I think at u13 it is important to consider the number of turnovers created as a benchmark for some success but also consider the number of scoring opportunities created as equally important. It seems that no one really pays attention to the first. At u13 and below a 50-50 ball launched from the back with no intention that loses possession is more aggregious than a turnover in the attacking half resulting from a 1 v1 attempt. Before quashing creativity consider the overall result and let the coaches do their job.

Anonymous said...

Its ridiculous that you would think that a coach would know more that a parent. Secondly, some teams love to launch balls from the defensive backfield, to the point that its even part of their identity. But then there is the opposite side of the coin. A offensive player can shoot and miss 3 or 4 times in a row and parents will shout "Good Try" each time. But when a defender gets beat or a keeper misses a ball, your can hear the crickets chirp.

Anonymous said...

No problem if an offensive u13 player misses 3 or 4 times if she scores a goal a game...she is hugely successful.

Your view on the matter is a bit incomplete.

Nothing wrong with a girl who dribbles and is creative in the last third, The issue is- that very same girl may have a low soccer IQ. and her dribbling, know matter how good, comes out of selfishness rather than creativity. there is an easy litmus test to evaluate such a player. As she is dribbling , watch how her teammates have appropriately checked into space and are open to receive the pass. does she pass it then or still hold and begin to miss opportunities and slow down the game, until she is in trouble and then decide to pass not because she see's the chance to further the play but because she is in trouble and now looks to get rid of the ball and possibly put one of her teammates under pressure. This is not being creative, This is a ball Hog with a low IQ that is in love with her dribbling skills.

So your predicting that Penn Fusion, a team I see on here described as a " middle of the road ECNL team" is going to win their bracket? To do so they will need to beat Cinn who beat PDA this fall 2-0 and Calvert who beat PDA 3-2, and BRYC who beat MF 2-0. If they do do, it's safe to say they are far better than middle of the road.

Good luck to them BTW.

The problem with expanding into PA is that the current clubs apparently hold veto power. Only a few worthy I can think of, YMS, and no way FC Bucks lets that happen and PA Classics. A few years back PAC and PL planned a merger and applied for ECNL status as a joint new club and were turned down. The merger then fell apart. Too bad really. The clubs have different priorities that I think actually would compliment each other and end the competition for top players. Anyway, watch for PAC to be a player in the girls DA for just the reason you mention, expanded geography. They have a very successful boys DA program and a solid and improving girls program as well.

To pile on, PF finished last in their bracket at WAGS with another team in their group at JeffCup. Don't see them making the final.

Also, didn't see a all-world forward when we played them, wish I knew her number.

The all world foward being described is a great player, but not all world. But is healthy for the first time in a long time. The PF you saw in the fall was a battered group that had lost confidence in themselves. BYRC will not be the team coming out of that bracket.

How do they pick the girls that go to US National Camps?

I was looking at the U16 team. They do not seem to get the best girls by ranking. I am looking at topdrawersoccer ranking of the girls.

They list 6 forwards there. Out of them the highest ranked forward is #6. Some are not ranked or are even out of the top 20.

I mean good for those girls that are getting a chance but is this system purely a who you know situation?

How do they pick the girls that go to US National Camps?

Anonymous said...

Your club or team has to recommend you to go to any USSF Training centers, and its a huge responsibility since their credibilty is on the line. Once they send you, you represent them in all aspects, so the player sent not only has to be a great athlete, but also a sound ambassador for your club. In other words, the player cannot reflect poorly on your club with any attitude issues, otherwise your club will suffer with not getting any calls from USSF looking for players in the future.

Anonymous said...

Each region (like region 1) has an associate state head coach. That head coach also has qualified associates that helps in in the selection from players seen at Region Camps and ODP camps and players seen during ODP. These coaches will try to select what they feel is the top players to go from their region, although as with any tryout, certain coaches may be looking for a certain skill set. And a National team coach may have sent out instructions of what he's looking for. Since he or she is the one that knows what they want their team to be.
There may be even more ways for players to be seen, but 7:51 still has not reappeared and will not pass on his superior knowledge in these areas. He doesn't even have enough class to give congrats to the girls that are already on the National Teams. Starting to look kind of like a loser 7:51

MD took care of business, played FSA and knocked them down and with the Albertson win they leap frog both FSA and WC in the standings.

There are many ways into the national camps. ODP is definitely one of them. At 01 id happens at the ODP national camps. As they get older there are natioanl scouts at the ODP interregional at Boca Raton. The training centers are another way. The one in PA is odd. They have only asked 6 clubs (5 initially including a team with only 99 and 00) for players and excluded some obvious choices like YMS. They picked the 3 ECNL clubs and Penn Legacy along with CLassics. The Penn Strikers added a few 99 (now aged out) and 00. The head guy moved club association to FC Rev and they added a few from there as well. Hardly a comprehensive sweep at PA talent. Now there is a National training center "regional combine" in PA encompassing the Northeast region. Only a small fraction of NTC kids invited at each age. National scouts will be there. Time will tell if anyone gets added from these. In any case they are soccer resume builders.

USSF Scouts also attend ECNL events. They will be checking out 01 in SC in May for sure. The ECNL coach submitts the names and numbers of kids that he considers to be national level talents. They get a look, but arent definitely in unless supported by the scout. There is some politics to the process for sure. The scouts go to Sanford and PDA among the other ECNL events.

They also attend national league games looking for talent. So the ECNL doesnt have a complete lock, but there is definitely an advantage, Unless your kid does ODP, National League (when older), plays ECNL, or invited to national training centers, they are unlikely to be identified. Not the widest of nets for sure, but there still are multiple ways to be identified if the kid is good enough.

9:05 is PDA club hired infomercial to deflect attention from today's disaster vs Albertson.

if you put enough players in the box and kick the ball really far, you do hang with teams and earn a lot of ties, and sometimes it even feels like a win. Its not great for development of girls skills, but it is called soccer. But there is nothing wrong with that style as long as you are building towards your daughter playing high school soccer some day.

Wrong not pda
Just answering the poster who asked how a kid can get identified by the USSF for a national camp.

No objective observer should be suprised by that Albertson/PDA result. There is nothing in PDAs tournament results to suggest they are an elite team. Yes they had a good run in their fall league but as I said numerous times, most teams use league games for development and play tournaments to win. Storm claims they do the opposite which explains the league results. But I said when the other teams start focusing on winning like Storm does, the PDA parents would be shocked. I bet they are today. And tomorrow they have to play EM with the potential of being knocked out of first place. Things could get really ugly really early this spring over there.

Would anything less than a tournament championship be viewed as a success to you? If the Wildcats went 0-1-2 with a 1 goal discussion against FCV(arguably the best team on the east coast) and 2 draws against PL and Tri-State(also 2 of the best in the region)would you call it a failure? Could your kids team as well? I doubt it.

If PDA was working on Development today, why did the weaker players only get a few minutes each half? It looked like they were trying to win today. Maybe their luck has just run out!

I didn't think PDA had "weaker players". The whole squad is national team quality, right?

Stop with NJ Wildcats, do they get top flights of tournaments yes. They AVG 1.00 pts per game that's 1 Win and 6 ties out of 9 games Is that bad NO, is it good NO, For example WC has a 1.00 pts per game avg and they are currently in 9th place in the Pre-ENL flight.

So the question is - Why are the NJ Wildcats any different than WC?

WC has played 8 games vs PDA, EM, MF, Boston, FC Stars, PennFusion & CFC all F1 teams same as the NJ Wildcats 9 games

I know I'm jealous my kid's team isn't in F1. Just pointing the obvious a 1.00 AVG is not worthy of top flight and either is Calvert with their 1.14 pt per game avg.

Prove me wrong at Jefferson.

Just like i said PDA Storm's Fall league record was impressive, I also called them out today and said they should have had the W vs Albertson.

Keep playing strong girls and don't worry about the posts on this board, it's just a bunch of fools having some fun

No shame, PDA

As someone wisely said here, Albertson is a vastly improved team

Onward. Chin up now.

Thanks 10:30 Region1 site not updated yet.

7:09 First I am glad PDA is finally working on technical skills. Personally they need it

Next, If your team was not trying to win today. Please explain to me why there was 5 minutes added for injury time, especially when there were no injuries. Your referee's tried to get your team back in the game. Fortunately, for us, it did not affect the result, the better team won today

Anonymous said...

10:01 is right on the money with being pleased if they can manage two draws and maybe a win against top flight competition. Legacy will head into the Jeff Cup without having the benefit of playing any friendlies and possibly not even getting on the big field. So for PL to come away with something similar against FC Virginia, Wildcats and NY would be a tribute to the girls ability. Good luck first game Wildcats, see you in the second one.

That sounds great. if PDA does win the Spring season,
I am sure you will be the first person back on here saying that you were wrong.

I am sure you have no personnel bias, right?

11:03 thanks and we also look forward to the great competition next weekend.
Best of luck to you as well!
Neither of our teams has anything to prove to these Yoyo's.

9:39 Yes, we are sure.
You won't be seeing any of our players at your tryouts.
Guess you will have to develop the ones you have. Good luck with that.

The Champions League Game between Legacy and Binghampton may never happen. Binghampton first refusing a Saturday Game and asking for a Sunday play, then refusing again because the drive time would cost them two players due to time of church service and that it would affect their overall game. I am all for supporting the beliefs of families and having their youth involved. Wouldn't this have been a great chance for Binghampton to get other players involved and enjoy watching girls rise to the challenge. Instead this is simply a case of one team wanting another to come to them and play on their fields with their refs. Until there is a true commissioner and a real penalty for not playing a game scheduled, this league will falter because teams are allowed to due as they please. Of course, Binghampton did say that Legacy may come to their place and play (which Legacy did twice last year). It a shame, because the concept from Region 1 was great, unfortunately the enforcement of play lacks teeth. Hats off to South Shore Select, despite all the snow (and they have been crushed with it), is still trying to make the games happen.

Very True 8:55pm

Many Fall games our team squeak by with wins\ties, when our team should have lost. Parents are very unhappy, very unhappy. Coach now, what an EGO. Really pissing off so many parents

Anonymous said...

11:18 and it's only just beginning.
Impossible for that team to be happy campers with those numbers at this young age.

ECNL website shows PDA has 21 players listed on the team. Assuming 2 goalies that would mean 19 position players for 10 spots on the field. I would want to be the in the bottom 3rd of that team.

Anonymous said...

9:54, perhaps the GB girls need some time at church to atone for their nasty play, forgiveness begins at home. Its a shame though, and really does reflect poorly on the league, and to be honest its a ridiculous distant to travel for 1 game, ridiculous. PL should of played in EDP, better competition and they could stay over-night with their Wildcat pals.

Why is everyone attacking Storm for 1 loss? I have no connection with the team, but after reading the posts I have to admit that some of the rhedoric is stupid, nasty, and more stupid. No need for any Storm parent to defend, no need for anyone to attack. I guess its the price of success. My daughters team has never played Storm, but if they ever do play, I am going to tell her that this is best team in NJ, so play your very best.

Anonymous said...

11:52 no one is attacking anyone.
If I post that they had a great fall and beat some great teams I can't not post if the drop one they should have had. Albertson prior to game was 3rd from bottom out of 11 the win helped them leap frog WC and FSA and helped support the posts that said they were an improved team.

Anonymous said...

True, but we all know that at any level of sports a team can beat another, 1st vs. last has created some great drama throughout history, no? Albertson is a good team, they beat EM, STA and Atletico this past December, which is impressive. I am just tired of the constant negative crap on this board.
