Middletown, BBSC, Hamilton can all beat the top teams other than World Class and Lyon, I know I am probably missing some. The next 30 teams are all very comparable IMO.
DTS Winter Invitational needs two more teams to fill its bracket. SDFC stepped up to big field...http://events.gotsport.com/events/results.aspx?EventID=41697&Gender=Girls&Age=11PDA Lyon xMiddletown xSDFC x??Maybe PDA Lyon Blue, PDA South, Vorhees, SJEB, Marlboro, NJ Rush, Bergen Bulldogs, NJ Crush????One of these top clubs has to be able to put together 11 kids no???
Would love to see SJEB East or World Class join the DTS tourney. Come on, step up!!!
C'mon Vorhees! You have more than 11 on the roster - just spread them out!!!! 442, 433 - C'mon Vorhees!
World Class - Just do it!!!!!
It's interesting that most of the comments discuss rankings, points, wins/losses but very few mention how happy their child is on any of these "top" teams. My daughter plays for a wonderful team but far more important than wins and losses is how she's progressing and the friendship that has developed among her teammates. I have had a number 0f terrific conversations with parents on opposing teams. Mutual respect and our child's happiness is the basis of the conversation. It is truly a shame that we chose this forum to bash teams, kids and coaches. It's a great sport - may the best team win come the spring.

Don't tell us its not in the budget lol.
I agree that this blog should not be for bashing kids. However, that being said, I do believe the coaches are open game. They are adults and should be held accountable for their actions. If they act like jerkoffs, they should be called out on it. IMO
I agree kids should not be bashed, and coaches who act like jagoffs are fair game. But I also witness far too often volunteer coaches just doing their best being criticized. Not every program wants/can afford a paid coach. Have some respect for volunteer coaches who really give an enormous amount of time.
Remember this is the first time girls are playing outside since last fall. I wouldn't read too much into the outcome of the tournament.
It's to cold to get an accurate assessment of a teams play. Winter tournaments are a waste of time.
"Remember this is the first time girls are playing outside since last fall. I wouldn't read too much into the outcome of the tournament."Sounds like SJEB, Vorhees or WC coach's quote. Just get in the bracket already!
A site for a few to ponder on:http://youthsoccerrankings.usYou can search by Age, Region and State as well.I see you PDA Lyon, coming in at #52 Nationally and #1 in NJ. The team from TX at #3 coming to Jeff Cup is for real. Middletown best beware!!
How is anyone playing outside this weekend? Temps below freezing all day Saturday not to mention fields probably still covered in snow and ice.
DTS had games outside last weekend as well. Fields are clear.
DTS tournament canceled this weekend
How come the top team in the country isn't going to Jeff Cup? Kudos to Middletown for looking to test themselves outside the region. Although from the looks of things the competition is significantly weaker than prior years. Some of the best may be from right here in NJ. Go Garden State!
NJ's got some good teams but doubt they would ever have a good concentration as warm weather states. Going to be tough to compete with teams that can train year round.
NJ teams and players train as much as anyone. No difference indoors vs outdoors.
This whole thread is ridiculous. This team is better than that, my kid can beat yours.....PATHETIC. Academy teams are great at poaching top talent from club teams. None of it matters until those players get to college. And no, I'm not some angry parent b/c my kid isn't good enough. My daughter is playing keeper on a nationally selected team that will be playing in Spain this Summer. These are 10 and 11 year olds you are talking about on here. I hope the kids show more class on the pitch than their parents do on here.
Not sure what this means..."nationally selected team going to Spain". Can you elaborate on what this program is all about. Would love to learn more on what programs lee your daughter to achieve such an honor.
Nationally selected u11 teams?
It means some clown wants to pretend his daughterwas selected to some prestigious team which doesn't exist, but who signed up and could afford to go to a lau to play team going to Spain could come on here and create a straw man to rail at. Last I checked the string was supporting NJ teams who venture out to challenge themselves at Jeff Cup and other venues. Go back in your hole you miscreant.
I agree Spain is for people that wanna spend money and think there kid is good going to Spain....where does your kid play goalie at sounds like the mom from PDA that went to IGFA....nationally selected team funny stuff I can tell u 6 other keepers that are better...it's like people that did the odp that means nothing till kids are older please don't brag about stuff u pay for to have ur kid play on it only makes u look stupid.....
All you big dummy's on here sound like you belong on RuPauls Drag Race the way you guys claw and hiss at each other. Owwww girl you better work! (3 snaps and a smack)
March 2, 2015 at 5:44 AM, I don't know what is worse. The fact you know about Rupauls Drag Race or the fact you logged on at 5:44 AM to a U-11 soccer blog and RuPaul is the first thing you think of. Decaf is a wonderful thing.
RuPaul..........she/he is everywhere. The drama the sauciness! We have it all right here. 5:44 thank you for the laugh this morning.
Why is 7:32 thanking himself for his post at 5:44 am? Not only is he not funny and sadly knows too much about a drag queen, but he also seems to be bipolar.Now let's get back to hearing about the next Hope Solo and this imaginery elite team selected to go to Spain.
Hi All,Searching the web and found this site. Can someone tell me a bit about Middletown. Our team will be making the trip for Jefferson Cup. Are they fast, big, aggressive?? Are they possession style or more direct? Would like to get feedback. Thx
@ 2:17 are you serious my friend big,fast, ... come on time to put a resume toghether put down the blog and coco puffs get up in the morning and go to work you man or it child!!!
@ 2:24Yes, big, fats, etc, etc. No disrespect just wanting info. Nothing against that right??
Correction above: "fast"
No, they are small, slow and timid, but just felt like driving to VA to play. You'll make your determination when you play them. It's all relative.
What's up with this weather?!Enough snow already!!!
