Do some players try out and make these high level teams without having any means to actually join the team? How many players decline offers from high level academies?
PDA South Barcelona 1-0 over Penn FusionLooks like PDA is becoming the powerhouse of South Jersey.
Oh please Millville! NJ rush tied an 05 team the other weekend. Believe me, your win means nothing. When you decide to stop riding out the sjgsl then talk the talk. Yo couldn't even make it to the final at Jeff cup.
Go PDA South Barcelona !!!!
I think the number should be lucky18. Most will come from current u13 teams/Galaxy/crew and other top players on other teams like SDFC at u13 who are 2003 BY. The PDA north ecnl team will probably only take on 5 or 6 players on current u12 teams and one being gollie who should count as a player. Not to worry though, the following year spots will open when the DA takes a few that wants to deal with them.
Real only beat Harrison 1-0. Has Harrison gotten better or is Real packing it in?
If the da is as pricey as ecnl type teams, yes it will attract the same players. If it a low price point, competition for spots will be very tough.
GDA will be valid when our kids are sophomores in HS at best. They have a many building years ahead to prove they can pull this off. I think 90% will want to play in high school. how many 2003 players does PDA have on current u13 rosters?
Valid? Weird word choice. It is a place for kids to learn soccer like lots of other places. What makes soccer instruction invalid? Don't see why they would have poor coaching.
Did you mean relevant?
.... it's an adjective that means legitimate.
I think you are confusing the concept of legitimate with the concept of higher and lower levels of play. Soccer is a game with the same rules at every level.
Maybe you meant the slang "legit" as in the real deal?
131- please apologize so this guy moves on. I agree that the da will take a few years to get their shit together and won't be a "valid option" until 2019 or beyond. Most of the top high school girls playing now won't move. I know this for a fact, I have a freshman playing and she will be committed to college by the time she is eligible. I'll admit she won't be going pro for 25k a year if it's still around and she won't make the natl team, but she will get into a better college of her choice. Coaching is only one aspect and plenty of clubs and leagues have that now. Even Colorado Rush. You need a lot of solid players to train well and then you need other good teams to play against. You also need willing parents, fields and everything else it takes to build a new league. Just because they are the federation, doesn't mean they are the almighty and this thing will just appear. Look at the boys side after 8 years.... Most of the clubs looking at the da have no money, so I hope they have a plan in place to fund this baby...
Poor coaching? What does that have to do with 1:38? I'm not following.
One thing you do not need is air plane rides.
ECNL now considering boys divisions? Stop worrying about the future and concentrate on the present. Who knows what US soccer will look like in a few years.http://www.soccerwire.com/news/clubs/youth-boys/exclusive-ecnl-planning-to-expand-to-boys-youth-soccer-likely-by-fall-2017/
Looks like ecnl has their backs up. I guess I don't blame them, the federation blind sided them and is trying to take away everything they built. What does this mean for us, more options and competition. Would be great if they both succeed, let the freaks go to GDA(we have all met them) and let the rest of us enjoy the game without controlling our kids lives. I know of at least 6 or 7 kids on my daughters team that would make the DA and only two that will end up going. And when they go, we all win.
What? The ECNL directly copied their league model from the federation boy's DA.
Trying to compete is not "taking away everything they built" (or copied). It will provide some competition and will be good for the consumer, especially if they start to compete on price. That is the american way.
Anyone go to MFA tryouts last night.
Matchfit tryout 2003. Aprox 50 girls tried out. 2004 aprox. 40 girls tried out. Some good players on 2003. Moved the ball well.
You're stretching the truth a bit, I was at the MFA tryouts and there wasn't close to 50 2003s or 40 2004s.
We really want our daughter on a competitive 04 team next year, and we don't know whether to stick it out at our current club or look elsewhere. I assume that half of each u12 team is 2004, and not every u11 team has strong enough 04s to fill in the gaps, so it seems like if everyone stays with their clubs, the team's are going to have a big drop off between the top players and the rest. We live in northern nj, so clubs like PDA are too far for us to consider. Any thoughts on teams in north nj that you'd expect would attract top 04s for next year?
could have been 40 at each age. MF has four teams at each age. Next year they will only have two teams at each age. So expect them to keep everyone and have 26 per team
1:45If that's the case, that club is in for a world of hurt. There was maybe 3 or 4 kids last night at the 04 age that were "quality" players. We will not be going back for future tryouts.
Inflated rosters seem to be common at "good" clubs as the girls get older. Why would anyone agree to this? Our club packs 18 girls on a team (and has a B team with that many girls) and we have often said 18 girls is too many. I know why the clubs do it---for money even if they say it's to protect against injuries, but how would this benefit our daughters?
Barons 03s had about 70 to 80 girls
I heard 160 and they are good, fast and can juggle dem balls.
PDA had 200+.
sjeb only had about 50 will have more tonight for those that didnt want to travel to hammontonvery talented group coming out of the woodwork
Great clubs but completely unaffordable for most players no matter how talented. And accepting financial assistance is embarrassing and not for most even if they need it. There will always be great players at lower cost options that are simply cut out of that environment based on cost.
2004 RUSH will be the team next season!! It will be the best of the best of South Jersey!!! Rush recruited the players! The team is set up to match their hot 2003 team! Just wait till the roster is posted!! Its a who's who of South Jersey!!! Players from Madrid, Xtreme, Barron's, PDA and a few others!!!! BEEP, BEEP, BEEP, BEEP..... SNOOZE BUTTON! I believe that was not a dream but a nightmare!!!
That actually could happen!!! Any of the major clubs could pull that, not just Rush! That seriously could happen and no one would know till its all over!!! Thats how crazy this age requirement has become. One team will come out as a powerhouse.
Powerhouse is and always will be PDA.
April 6, 2016 at 7:10 PMWOW..what did Rush do to you?
I think it will be a toss up between barons and rush next year at the 04 age group this coming season.
Haven't Barons and Rush merged? That's what it says on Rush's website.
U15 and older for college showcase ages.
They r separated until u-15 then merge to make a show case team
Another fabulous day to play soccer!
That's what makes sports great. You have to play in all different kinds of conditions.
Separates the committed from the not so committed. Interesting who is "sick" today.
Nobody on any decent team is calling out sick today, unless they are sick.
PDA Lyon had girls out sick or something - only like 14 or 15 out there today...
I was talking about all the indecent teams. Sometimes people are on this forum not from the almighty super awesome decent teams. Some teams have wide ranging rosters - imagine that!
Thats good for the girls who came! More playing time!
Is the skill level relevant when it comes to commited vs not committed? I don't think so. Maybe the weather had nothing to do with why they were missing.
"I was talking about all the indecent teams."I have a couple degrees but i don't get this comment. Is it some sort of sarcasm or inside joke with yourself?PDA Lyon is down a few girls at the PDA tournament but i'm pretty sure they are at the US Soccer YNT regional camp this weekend. You guys just make up funny stuff on here…The PDA and MFA hate is awesome here. Why?
"Nobody on any decent team is calling out sick today"
Go Lyon! No goals allowed again.
Aztec dominates ECNL teams in their bracket and scores 10 goals then plays PDA Lyon and gets steam rolled 3-0 in PDA Tourney final. Lyon was supposedly down two of the best players at US Soccer camp and they don't give up a goal all weekend?Seriously. Are they just that much better than everybody? What is their training like?https://tgs.totalglobalsports.com/public/standings.aspx?eid=164&fid=782
Aztec was on this board a lot before jeff Cup and after jeff Cup and have had two chances at them. What do they say?
Any thoughts on San Diego Surf FC opening up shop in New York? Are they angling for a DA spot?
All these teams only have a few more weeks together as a team. Next fall will be interesting.
2:51 soccer is a business. No different that PDA opening up shop in Florida or Tom Collichio opening a restaurant in Vegas.
Lyon in last three tournaments. Manhattan Jeff Cup and PDA Kickoff. 12-0. 35 goals for 1 against.
The gotsoccer state ranks of those 12 wins 12,6,6,1,2,3,2,5,2,5,2,2. That is ridiculous.
Thank you to the Lyon parent who posted at 1:16, 1:46, 2:20, 2:53, 6:15, 7:27 and 7:43 for updating everyone. Clearly you have spent a lot of time and effort. Luckily you have a lot of spare time on your hands. Some may even say "no life".
Haters are back! It always gets fun now. I was a hater too or more like nonbeliever in the playing-up approach and all that.Seriously - Lyon is the real deal. I was sold after SDFC smashing since my daughter has played SDFC and it wasn't pretty. Not a Lyon parent! NJ Stallions Dad.
Lyon is a great team. I can't see people disputing that. And I doubt it is a Lyon parent posting on this blog to brag about the team. Let's move on
Sjeb east 1 Medford real 1
None of competitive these clubs seem to have any fee info easily available, just try out schedules. Do players turn it down if they are selected and the fee is way over budget?
PDA gives all that info afterthe last tryout
why do they want to waste their time with players that don't have the cash for their program? Frustrating system.
Yes- they decline offer. I know of one who was in talks with two clubs over price. I think she even tried to get both clubs in a bidding war for her kid. Lol. I don't think it worked. She finally chose one of them. I would assume a player would have to be something real special to receive a discount or free membership. I have declined four offers (various sports) 2 of them the coach was understanding of the reason, professional and wished my daughter the best. The other two seemed annoyed. None was due to costly fees though. Can't you call or email the club to inquire about fees before trying out? I'm sure they would give a round about cost or maybe last years base.
PDA missing 2 of their best players yesterday
That's a funny statement. Lyon is a great team due to the depth of their bench. They were down two players and still spanked Aztec. The team did just fine because all the players are talented.
Ok sure Lyon is deep - deeper 1-18 than teams like Galaxy and Strikers BUT do not pretend that they were not missing two of the VERY best kids who have both been a part of The US Training Center. That they seemingly have won easily in a deep and competitive age group is pretty amazing. I was a criticizer but I say if you are are a very talented team - avoid chasing points and playing up at a young age is actually a darn good idea based on this squad's development.
Lots of top teams around the country and some in this region play up exclusively until they are about U12 or U13 too.
It's nice when you have a team that works well as a whole an not single out who is the best it does take a team to win though.Congrats Lyon! On too the next..
Agreed any predictions on the state cupdoes anyone have opinions on DA girls Academy would love to hear?
Very interesting that Voorhees Xtreme gets knocked out of the EDP Open Cup and doesn't even qualify for the semi final round.
Real answers only please. How were the matchfit tryouts tonight for the 2004s? Was there a good turnout? My daughter has been to birth year sessions at a couple of clubs and we were not very impressed with the turnout in terms of talent or number of girls. We did not realize matchfit was out of denville or we would have considered that. Now I am wondering if I should try to contact the coach before they give out offers
I have heard they have 75 or so 2004s registered. Reach out, can't hurt.
@10:23 - nothing wrong with MFA. Can't hurt getting another option for your kid.
@1023 mf has four teams at that age now, looking for only two next year, have said 26 for each roster.
is that a joke 9:48? 26 per roster?
SJEB tryout thoughts?
which age group? 03 or 04?
04 look like it had some good players out there. Between east west and new girls should be a good team. Some Voorhees girls out there guess rush isn't a sure thing
Last try-out for barons 03 was last night and last 04 try-out is tonight
Anyone going to Rush? Don't know much about them for 04.
Rush tryouts start Sunday. Most likely some of same players will be at Rush tryouts too. Not too sure about the rush 03's but the current 04 player pool is overall less competitive.
@1059"is that a joke 9:48? 26 per roster?"no joke, that was told to current players at mid season meeting, that is the roster limitnow whether they have enough players to get there is a different story
Why would anyone put their child on a team with a roster of 26? Think we will pass on matchfit (I was the one who asked about the matchfit turnout yesterday)
coach at tryout stated they are keeping 20 rostered players per team but will only dress 18 per match
http://www.gotsport.com/asp/directors/tournament/vieweventteamscleanb.asp?EventID=46577&Group=Girls_12Most of the top teams in the region in top bracket
2:35 - That's because rules state that you can only dress 18 per game.
so how does that work if you have 20 girls and can only dress 18. Is it the best 18 each week, meaning the bottom girls will likely sit often and the top girls never sit out? I have heard about there being big rosters at some clubs (usually ECNL clubs) and I do not understand why anyone would agree to this. It just seems like a very obvious way for the clubs to make more money at our expense.
check out u 14 blog, same discussion except at that age you are pay 7-8000 year and number 19 and20 are sitting http://youthsoccertalk.blogspot.com/2013/09/u12g-u12-girls-youth-soccer.html?commentPage=23and fyi 26 is the roster limit, they will go there if enough players buy in
So with PF and PDA 1st tryouts already done ... how many girls from the outside were invited to play on the team? It's already known that PF was tying up the preECNL roster by 1st tryouts. Already heard PDA sent out offers to practice with the team as well. How hard is it for an outsider to get into one of these clubs without previous training with the team or ID sessions?
Anybody from the outside can get on the team - if they are good! PDA has talent from their B team and their U11 A team and even U11 B. Then there is PDA Shore with talent and PDA South too but its far. Coaches would much rather pull from other PDA teams to fill a roster - that is what development is all about!All that said - if you can play, you will make it. I bet 1 or 2 outside girls(outside of Lyon, Zizzou, Strikers, Sounders, Shore and South) will make the team.
@220Not just MF , PDA check the rosters for all the ECNL teams. They have between 23 to 26 rostered .
South shore would beat pda
Lyon skipping Delco to avoid South Shore?
I cannot think of a reason, other than for clubs to tie up talent and raise $$, for having a roster with more than 16-18 players. There is only so much space on the practice field and playing time during games to go around. Am i missing something?
@7:42 I agree. I think 16 is more than enough on a roster because you want all of the players on the team to be equally as talented so there is no drop off when anyone is subbed in or out. It is hard enough to do with 16 but in my experience even then there is a difference between the top half of the team and the bottom couple of girls. While its "all about development" and not wins, it does not benefit the strongest players to train with weaker players. I wish everyone would just say no to bigger rosters because then clubs could not do it. If you have to show up at a game with only 11 or 12 girls every now and then, it should not matter since it isn't supposed to be about winning anyway and I would bet the girls who show up to play would be thrilled to play the entire game!
Bigger rosters is all about money for the big clubs. They will say it is to account for injury, vacations and other things that may come up. Rostering 24 girls is not for development purposes.
No one is forced o buy this giant roster product. If you do not want to be part of a giant roster, do not play for a team with a giant roster. At this age, it stinks for the players sitting with no game time and for the starters who are part of a "team" where many don't even participate much in the games.
Sometimes the roster "grows" after you've accepted the offer. That has been our experience. Players (middle of the pack) being added during the new season which leads to sitting out games or diminished playing time. It is obviously about the money despite what the club claims but there is nothing to do about it until the next tryout season
We have had a player come into the team during the season but they do not participate in games until the next season.
"Lyon skipping Delco to avoid South Shore?"That's funny - no PDA team has done Delco for years...Yet South Shore skipped PDA and Jeff Cup which they had done multiple times in recent years.Lyon is a different team this season - I'm pretty sure that's been proven. # of Goals scored vs top competition is really over the top.Lyon-South Shore would be a great game but it's SSS that skipped what they have done for years. This game probably Won't happen since several SSS girls are moving to a new ECNL club closest to them just added for next season.
Lyon skipping Delco to avoid South Shore?April 13, 2016 at 11:39 PMShould we also ask if South Shore skipped Jeff Cup and PDA tourney to avoid Lyon? South Shore and PDA develop players. Bloggers develop rivalries
South Shore skipped Jeff Cup and PDA tourney to avoid Lyon?
Ha Ha Ha
SSS is a great team and the only team Lyon has not been able to beat. Close, but not good enough. Lyon will be the first to admit that SSS is a better team and would jump at a chance to play them again. The comments above are just some sore loser parents from other teams trying to stir the pot. Get a life. Better yet, go take your kid to extra training.
All the Lyon haters still trolling. Lyon's record speaks for itself. South Shore is a great team and would be a great match to watch. Would at least be competitive vs the beating South Shore dishes against other NJ teams.
Hater? Maybe just poking a little fun at all the bragging about kid soccer.
SSS beat Lyon 1-0 and on pk's after a 0-0 tie last year. They beat voorhees 8-0. Enough said.
Yes please, enough said. You are making our team look bad.
I agree with 8:20. Sounds like poking fun.
South Shore did not beat Voorhees 8-0, it was 7-1! LOL Voorhees will have their hands full at Delco. Good luck to them and all the NJ teams. I would assume last tourney for Voorhees Xtreme. RIP
Easy Lyon win tomorrow for the cup game. Should be playing at U 13 for the cup as well.
interesting who didn't play much in the lyon game today...
Looking for a team and planning to sign up to the 04's NJ Elite soccer tryouts next Saturday and FC Copa. Any thoughts about the academies, coaching...?
NJ Elite could use some help based on their score. Better than Copa for sure though...
What did you think of rush tryouts?
6:41 not as many girls as expected
7-0 lyon today
Playing up in crappy 11 v11 brackets and flight 2 tournaments really seems to have prepare Lyon for the top U13 bracket this season not to mention the nation's best teams at U12. Or they are just really good at soccer, whatever.
@7:33 Lyon is great, they are the best. We get it. Stop bragging
How did PDA call back/ tryouts go last night?
Rush tryouts? Sunday morning when many are had games already scheduled. Would expect less than expected would attend.Previously posted tidbit about Sonic, their trainer and Xtreme going to Rush, part of that is proving to be true. Sonic's trainer ran the Rush 04 tryout, assuming sonic players were there. That 2 out of 3. The last one is Xtreme merging with Sonic. Unless Xtreme already agreed to play for Barons. Were they at Rush's tryouts?
PDA call backs are on Thursday
How many 2004 PDA teams will there be in the North? Match Fit has 2 2004 teams.
2 '04 teams at PDA North
There were call backs Tuesday as well as this upcoming Thursday for PDA Lyon.
No proof yet!
@11:27 by that logic, the Rush Renegades must be merging with Temple University. Pretty cool huh.
PDA 2003 team already confirming players. Not many spots left in the new u14 ecnl team left. I think at least 14 spots are confirmed. I can see them going as high as 20 - so probably six avaible positions still open.
@6:48 Logic has nothing to do with it. Just facts. Team is registered to attend the Rush tryouts and have already attended Barons. Email from Rush coach includes email list of registered players, Pretty cool huh. Last names are used in email addresses and are recognizable. Pretty cool. Players attend multiple tryouts. Pretty cool when parents play games, accept first club offer and then change mind a couple weeks later to join another team. Pretty cool PDA 2003 will have 20 players. Pretty cool 2004 PDA and Matchfit will have 2 teams. Pretty cool huh. PRETTY COOL STUFF Rainbows, glitter and butterflies. La la la-la la la, Sing a happy song. La la la-la la la, Smurf your whole day long.
8:44 Wow and sad
Is PDA taking players from Zizou and moving them up to Lyon? Or keeping it separate?
10:08 Based on numbers it seems likely some of them will move up - many more 03s on current Lyon than 04s - I suspect they will just try to fill the spots with the best players they can find just like anyone else. Did Zizzou players go to the Tuesday call back?
@11:26 Rush tryouts this past Sunday were terrible. The Xtreme team Is moving to Rush. Well, that is, what will be left of their team. I heard from one of their parents that some are breaking off and going to the barons. I know there were quite a few at the SJEB tryouts. I heard they are also using the sonics trainer when they go to Rush and that is why he ran the tryout for them. Did not hear of any sonics move to rush. All I know is that Rush is getting desperate. I got the email from the coach about this Sunday's tryout. I'm sure they are disappointed with the poor turn out last week. I don't expect this Sunday to be any better. Hopefully, these girls attend more than just the Rush tryouts and consider other offers.....it doesn't look too promising!
Where will everyone go after Thursday when girls don't get letters from PDA???
Who the heck knows what Lyon is going to do? I'm sure the coaches are going to pick the best 18 kids in their opinion. When you get to ECNL level teams at any club, PDA included - the coaches just HAVE to win, period. If you make the team, they think your kid can help them win. Good luck with the MFA & PDA tryouts!
@10:28 I think you have almost nailed it. Let's try using logic again and piecing together multiple posts, current sonic trainer wants to merge teams two teams and looks like sonic not so interested in moving to rush. Hows that for rainbows glitter and butterflies? lalalalala
Match Fit tryouts are already finished. They have their teams already.
Sort of but if any of those MFA kids get PDA offers in the next week, they'll walk from that offer. Especially if they lived closer to PDA and even if they don't live closer...
@9:09 Sound logic that should be served with cupcakes and sprinkles; and fresh squeezed ice cold lemonade! ; )~@11:30 Lighten up PooPoo Smurf! "Let the sunshine in. Face it with a grin - smilers never lose and frowners never win" - Stuart Hamblen
Prince is dead.
What's happens with got soccer points and ranking will they reset all of them
Match fit is the worst place ever. I hope you have your teams already.. Do us all a favor an take your dog crap coaching to some other state.
4:11 is PooPoo Smurf 2! Lalalala
TBAA Sonic will be having another open tryout tonight for '04s and strong '05s at Total Turf. It's rain (inside) or shine (outside). We are still looking for a top level goalie and other top field players. The session is from 7:15 to 8:30. Be there by 7:00 to sign up and warm up. The address for Total Turf is 614 Lambs Rd Pitman, NJ.
Rider guy will coach 04 Rush and the sonic 04 team? Somebody is getting duped in this scenerio. I pity the fool who gets bait and switch.
Jim, you're doing your 05 a major disservice. Why would anyone want to knowingly play up on a weak team?!?!
You must have never seen us play! We are the best team in South Jersey! Any 04 team would take our 05 players in a heartbeat!
2004 PDA Golden tickets, I mean offers - are out.
US Club State Cup 8-v-8 Quarters this weekend good luck to all teams. See Spartans beating Brick...Millville beating Matchfit...Bergen beating Wildcats and FC Berna beating FC Copa. However it unfolds congrats to all teams for getting this far.
I don't think so about taking your 05s PDA north wouldn't take ur 05s or the barons or copa or world class sdfc nj crush..if your kids were that good they wouldn't be on a town team.
April 22, 2016 at 2:16 PMNice try. Someone trying to stir up trouble.PooPoo Smurf 2! Lalalala
@2:59 We aren't suckers like all you academy parents. Ha! Shows what little you know. We just beat PDA 5-0!
@3:16 Um yeah. But it looks like you tied PDA Milan so not really dominating all the PDA teams. Settle down Sonic.
How many offers went out for PDA 2004?
Sonic needs to move to 05 blog. You're small patotos here Jimbo
If you "steal" a coach, you are "low"!
More like Coach perfers to coach one team over another. Maybe he disapproved of the team direction or missing affiliation. If coach is free agent then he can coach where ever he likes! Who did the "stealing"?
So it's official. Galaxy team is confirmed for 2016-17. Congrats to all that made it.
How many Lyon kids made it?
Can anyone confirm if PDA 2004 has given out their offers yet?
It's more of a rolling admissions sort of thing...
Yes, PDA '04s began contacting people with offers Friday morning.
Pda rosters set a and b couple of girls declined to stay on current teams don't believe the hype Pda will have a lot of competition they aren't the only show in town
A player declined a Lyon offer? I doubt that highly. if you are going to the tryout, its with the hope of making the Pre-ECNL team. Maybe you turn down a B-team offer because you live far or maybe your ego is bruised but I'd say with certainty - without my kid being one who was offered I'll admit - no kid or family turned down such an offer to the 2004 or to the 2003 team.
12:34 how do you know are you still blowing the coach
You want the offer to join or to verify that your players development is competitive with players from high level programs. Some want reassurance that their kid is progressing.
I agree why is pda the dominant talk I can't wait till other groups form let's talk about something else this year there are other clubs and fact several girls turned down offers b and a you losers.We are talking about 11 year Olds imagine if people had lives and jobs on her ouch
I know kids with offers who have not accepted or declined. Process not complete as far as I know.
No Lyon score vs U13 PDA Shore?
Lyon won 4-0. Shore had one shot on goal. Got dominated the rest of the game.
This blog should be renamed "PDA Youth Soccer Talk"Go Lions!
It is sort of Amazing that they never lose and never allow goals and score so many damn goals, though.
Whatever happened to World Class Bulldogs team? Now there's only Roja? That was their B team?
They are still around. Just not winning as much recently…Jeff Cup was a disaster.https://home.gotsoccer.com/rankings/team.aspx?TeamID=580394
The team that Lyon just beat today 4-0 - PDA Shore Wave, beat the WC Bulldogs 1-0 a few weeks ago in STA tournament...
What division are they playing in?
U13 2nd division in EDP like Lyon used to do. I think Lyon moved up to U13 First Division.
As a mother of a 04 we played Copa Madrid yesterday there girls and parents are out of control real trash thanks for ruining our daughters day,shame on you.
Define 'out of control real trash'- trash talking opposing players?- encouraging own players to play in such a physical manor with intent to cause injury?- bumptious, condescending, lacking empathy or any sense of humbleness?all of the above? Some parents are just as immature as there children. It's a real shame.
Facts Copa man pushing from back ,parents laughing telling girls get up your slowing game ,calling our younger girls obscene names real shame.
I Agee 9:34 my daughter plays for sjeb.We had similar issues with this team .I guess this is this Copa way.
buyer beware moment - my daughter plays for ecnl club (not pda). coaches left over season. countless players left. two coaches are listed for five teams. Spent one month with only one practice per week - ecnl and npl. no games over winter and the list goes on. putting it out there bc we are sorry we stayed another year. look deeply and don't buy in because of the four letters, make sure you get what you pay for.
How many of the Lyons made the new PDA u14 ECNL team? I heard most of the players have received offers. WCFC and MF have lost a few of their top 2003 players during this age change transition. Is tomorrow night the last tryout session? Thanks
I heard that Lyon team has 11 2003 age group players, I would expect maybe 5 make that u14 team. 10 will come from current PDA u13 teams, most of them from the A team, 2 or 3 from B and the south team. That only leaves about 3 or 4 spots from outsiders. I have seen a few girls from WC, MF and SDFC at the tryouts who look very solid. And yes, tomorrow is final tryout, a few girls have been going to Galaxy practices.
There are more Thursday call-backs after Tursday for 2003 ECNL team.
Has the coach for the new ecnl 14 team gone to any Lyons games? Has he ever watched any the the u12 teams play that have so many solid 03 players? I watch these tryouts and wonder how in the world can they pick from so many talented players, I'm sure many will be missed and move on to the second their ecnl clubs, but this probably happens at all age levels. Scary.
I bet you this team takes 20 players, maybe the last year they can take advantage of parents and kids before the DA starts to take the best away from them. PDA should wake up and compete now with the DA. Lower the cost and step up the training and play a few more games like other clubs. Mike O will have 24 on his 02 roster, thanks god I have an 03....
How many PDA u13 are 03 girls? I'm sure the Lyons parent believe their kids are much stronger and will take the majority of starting spots.
this blog should be renamed All PDA ALL the time
"How many PDA u13 are 03 girls? I'm sure the Lyons parent believe their kids are much stronger and will take the majority of starting spots. "I would say it's the opposite. When you are at PDA you know all teams have top talent. Galaxy is in 1st place in pre-ECNL so most parents know its difficult to make any ECNL team at PDA, period.That being said there is a player on galaxy who is an 04 and trying to stay up and even Galaxy parents know she would not be in the top 3 next year for Lyon. Besides that, I'm pretty sure it will be a fair evaluation where the coach wants to put together the best team possible.
So you are saying the 04 player doesn't belong? If that is so why is she playing up on Galaxy?
do players play up at PDA with the new age rule?
