U14 (2004) Girls Youth Soccer

This is a time when players develop a true love for the game and the focus is a little more intense, on the field and on the sidelines...

SJEB is getting DA ????????

Anonymous said...

Stop with the ridiculous rumors...SJEB is not getting the GDA. Maybe they shoot for ECNL. Even that is a reach. PDA will not allow another South Jersey club to have DA or ECNL.

Anonymous said...

PDA parent a little butt hurt? Don't be bitter because you have no teams to compete with the top SJEB teams. The talent in SJ has realized that PDA South is nothing more than a money grabbing 2nd level club at best.

Anonymous said...

The state cup game??? They played PDA shore not PDA south.

I hope 9:20 isn’t a SJEB parent. That is an obnoxious statement.

If it was... SJEB parents should be careful what they wish for. If they get GDA, their bottom 5 will be replaced. That team has a few strong talented skilled players that carry the weight. You can tell some have put in a lot of hours on their own perfected their skill. Some of the players seem to be on borrowed time.

Congrates to them and good luck at regional stage of competition!

Their is no way SJEB/Rush is getting GDA status. Would be cool to see that 2004 team though. Team would be deadly. Its no secret who the best 04's are in SJ in every position.

PDA v CSA U14GDA game was live streamed. Looked like CSA dominated the game even though the ref was giving PDA every chance to win. Both DA teams would crush SJEB by at least 6 goals. It wouldn't be close.

"Both DA teams would crush......" Both teams would crush an EDP team?? Gosh I hope so!!! I would want my money back from the academy if they lost. LOL

Anonymous said...

I don’t think they would crush them.

South Jersey should have their own GDA. There is enough talent and population to create a competitive team.

Any one highschool in Jersey acquiring a handful of high key freshman next year?

Anonymous said...

Let us be realistic. PDA is still a very good team, probably tops in NJ. CSA seems to be on the way up. SJEB could put together a very good DA team, they would pull from PDA South.

I would take the word “very” out of the above statement.

@3:43. If you are impressed with SJEB, please list your top 5 teams in NJ for this age group.

Is there any plan for ECNL and NPL to consolidate? The level of play of for these teams is fairly similar, particularly this year with the introduction of GDA.

PDA is the best girls program in the State of NJ! I do not have a player at PDA but have been involved with NJ Youth soccer for 30 years. This U14 PDA DA team has a National Player from NJ on the team. Parents on this forum are full of jealousy. PDA does not need to win games to prove how good they are. Anyone who knows the game of soccer can see that CSA did not control the play against PDA. PDA controls the ball with every touch. They do not play defensive and just clear the ball. Get a grip everyone! No girls programs in NJ will ever take the place of PDA as the top girls program! Just like on the boys side. Red Bulls with always be the top boys program in NJ!

11:50 I doubt you watched the game.

Anonymous said...

Claiming that no one will ever pass PDA is a ridiculous statement. You have no clue what the future holds. They may be tops now, but that doesn’t guarantee future success. They have 3 loses in this DA season which isn’t even 3 months old.

There was a girl that started for PDA that left CSA because she couldn’t crack the starting lineup.

PDA south they are not that good. They don't even play top bracket at tourments. I would put stallions,pda shore, sat all ahead of them

Anonymous said...

PDA shore struggled last year. PDA south barely gets an opportunity to play top Jersey teams. South is stuck in NE NPL. They’d have better competition in EDP.

@3:18 soccer is subjective. Maybe the player didn’t connect well with the coach. Or her style of play wasn’t the right fit.

@1150 - There are no national team players from pda at this age group. Look to Boston for that player. The 2002 goalie is only one right now from pda that I'm aware of. The most recent us training invite for 2003 players to take place in PA, (nj / pa 2003 combine)included three 2004 players. Two of them from penn fusion and one from pda. I believe your mention above was not invited to this camp. Cedar stars and penn fusion are best at this age group.

I believe the word on the street is that she is injured over the last few games.

Anonymous said...

@everyone, there is no best team at this age group that’s why you see so much player movement at this age. Right now it comes down to coaching. Who is able to get their team to play the best, consistent soccer possible. I bet there are well coached ECNL teams that can compete with any of these DA teams. Arguing who’s best is like arguing politics. It’s all subjective.

I wouldn’t bet on it

PDA does have a player that was invited to national team camp in California last month and yes she is currently injured. And they lost again today to Penn Fushion.

Anonymous said...

Yes, but there was a new invite to a 2003 USTC in Pa and two 2004 girls from penn fusion and one from Pda invited. And not the same name listed in September camp. This tells me things change every month and just because you get an invite, doesn't mean you get another. I was just responding about Pda dominance. From what I'm seeing, csa and pf is stronger at this age group. Today was more proof and the scouts are seeing this on the da.

Anonymous said...

Too funny! I guess players cant be injured...lol... Wouldn't you love to say you have a national player on your team! Look at every academy age bracket and PDA is at the top while CSA is at the bottom except U14 and don't forget CSA hasn't played Penn Fusion yet! Fact! PDA has a professional team attached to the program and Red Bulls has a professional team attached to their program. You can't bye that everyone! It will never change. PDA is the place to be on the girls side and Red Bulls on the boys. Its not about the wins. In every sport the best team doesn't always win!

7:48 It's an interesting comment about the birth years combining. 2004 is good for another year at the single age group, but I know there are a lot of questions for the 2003 team heading into a dual age group year next season. There are always rumors that the girls will move to all single age group bands next season, but the boys are remaining the same so we will see.

Looks like Matchfit is going to go to DA.

Anonymous said...

DA is exploring 2 things according to their web site (explicitly written for new applicants)
- adding a U13 age group
- keeping U16 on its own.

Not sure where y’all coming up with 2004 playing with 2003. FUD. Why would MF do GDA when they have explicitly said no last year to an invite. They don’t have enough staff to cover that many practices as required. Plus the cap for the roster size is 2/3 of what MF typically likes to carry per age group.

Anonymous said...

4:47 Maybe they realize that ECNL is on the decline, and if they pass on GDA this year another club will take the slot. There is plenty of talent to field a GDA program in the Morris County/North Jersey region of the state.

Anonymous said...

STA has better facilities and more dedicated coaches.

MF has old prestige. CSA North has backing of CSA south. Then add PSA, SDFC and Stallions. Probably all of them applied

No way USGDA is adding PSA, SDFC and Stallions. That’s crazy talk! Dount SJEBRUSH will get it either.

Anonymous said...

NYSC got GDA - and they have zero facilities.

Anonymous said...

Why do they need to add another gda club at all in New Jersey? It seems they need to first have some consistency in the competitiveness of the existing teams before they add clubs which will just dilute teams even more. If you look at gda results, the goal differentials for the bottom 3 or 4 teams in each age group in this area is quite high. Also, Matchfit would look stupid if they did gda a year after declining it. Especially since they are “all in” for the ecnl touting it as the proven path play to college. I for one, holpe they don’t add any gdas in NJ for next year. The past two years have been tumultuous enough first with birth year change, followed a year later by the introduction of gda. US soccer needs to just let the dust settle!

If Matchfit does DA they would lose most of the ecnl teams and would need more than 2 coaches. Some could compete some can't.

Anonymous said...

Matchfit could compete fine with some of the teams and clubs in the DA. IF you are in it, yo will see that some of the competition is weak as in any other league. That said, do they even want to? Does it help them or their players? Does not matter to me, but the GDA is not significantly different then other high level leagues in my experience.

Anonymous said...

Actually SJEB/Rush does have the true facilities now. They have partnered with Rowen U. for their new facility that is already being used by Rush. Their application is in. Club will hear within 60 days. Very strong chance they will get the nod. Multiple state cup champs on multiple levels and age groups. Strong national presence and don't forget RUSH is the largest soccer club in the world, 44k players. If they get the GDA, can't imagine the 2004 squad they would put together. It would be down right scary. The organization has some of the best 2004 talent in NJ. They would be a strong draw for talent in SJ, eastern PA, Delaware and central NJ. Delaware Rush has put their name in for the GDA as well and has a good chance. Time will tell.

A tip - manage your expectations. Your entire dream team may not be as thrilled as you with the prospect of all the increased money and travel required to go beat up on some weak teams. but you will get some great competition as well. Is what it is. Good luck.

The competition was stronger in Pre-ECNL last year. I'm not really looking forward to any new teams being added. There will be an adjustment period for those teams. Travel has definitely been better, though. One game a weekend has been nice, too.

The competition in ECNL isn't as strong as it was last year either. When do teams need to decide if they are going DA next year? Possibly 2 new NJ teams next year.

Whole thing is becoming a joke. Everything is just Ok and there is no obvious choice to consolidate strongest players. Some GDA teams are strong and have to beat on the weaklings. I see 6, 7, 8, 10, even 11 goal spreads in some GDA scores every weekend. Same in the ECNL (have not seen speads quite as severe there). Probably in the NPL as well. Ughh.

Anonymous said...

11:11 - I agree. DA competition is relatively poor and now ECNL competition is also weak. I don't really understand the ECNL bashing though. I agree that the DA is good for older girls by removing the high school break, but at this age the girls have been training and playing all year already. You'll love the DA if your kid is top 5 and playing the full game. If not, you're not going to like it since you'll be playing 50% or less and committing almost every day of the week for 10 months to the team. For that reason alone, I believe ECNL is still viable. Why give up playing for school when you're playing less than 50% and the competition isn't even that great? College is the goal for pretty much every girl on the DA team. In that case, are you really going to play EDP / Pre-DA at U16 if you don't make a dual age group DA team? And do you want to make a DA team as player 18-26 in your younger year and not even dress for games?

This is a U14 forum. Have you seen high school games?

Is 8:33 saying a player needs to play in either DA or ECNL to play in college?

If your kid can't make a DA or ECNL team then forget about it! Just play highschool.

Anonymous said...

NL, DA, ECNL, all three are great leagues. All three will help your players get into a college to play this amazing sport. This is not the time to worry about what league, its the time to think about next season, and where your club is thinking about showcasing. U15 is the start. Make sure your club has a game plan. Make sure your coach is qualified to bring a team to showcase. Whole new set of rules now. Any team that says Jeff Cup is enough, you should find a new team. U15's should do a minimum of four showcase events. Don't be shocked if you need to purchase airline tickets, rental cars etc. The transition from U14-U15 is usually the last time a player will switch teams. They will try out for stronger more organized teams with game plans on showcasing, then stick with that team throughout high school. Just a quick hmm don't forget the extremely elite girls who play up one or two years will be coming down eventually to play age appropriate. Most coaches will not say no to that talent. Less then six months till tryouts...

I say bull! It's not necessary to be on a NL, DA or ECNL team to play soccer in college.

@2:55 PM..... I agree with your point. Those three league do stand out more then say EDP or NPL. They are established and well respected. I also agree with 5:20 PM, you don't need those three to get into college on behalf of soccer but, it sure does help. I also agree on the the players who are currently playing up. Its an issue for teams. There is currently a player in our area who plays up two years and is lights out. I assume she will go age appropriate sooner or later and take someones position on a team.

The top players on any edp 1 div team can find an appropriate fit for college soccer. Even the best players with drive and passion on Div 2 edp teams. The chances significantly decrease after that - not impossible though.

Saw one of those players who was playing up 2 years and this season played age appropriate. She didn’t stand out during the game. She was just as good as any of the other talented players. She probably did knock a player off the team though. Probably a lot of players could play up and compete though.

Wait, is that true 1214? Why is that team even in edp if it can’t even compete? It sounds like the team should be in bottom flight of south jersey, not bottom flight of edp. It is really poor coaching to put a team at a level that it cannot compete in. But I guess parents are idiots and hear the word academy and think they are getting something special. Can’t exactly blame the guy for finding a way of taking people’s money, if people just gonna throw it at him. But honestly, would you want your daughter to join a team that gets trounced every time they step on the field, and by teams that are average in competition? Especially when there are better options? Either the players on the team are not worthy of being in an edp flight or the coaching/program is failing the players by not putting them in a position to compete.

Anonymous said...

If you watch the live stream games, you can see the only team that played well coached, disciplined possession soccer is PDA. Sorry CSA parents, but you can see your team is about hard fouls and long balls. The goalies punts every time and they kick to the corner and hope someone can collect the garbage in front of the net and finish. Penn Fusion has but one option and that’s kick as far as you can and have one of the most dominant players in DA get the ball and finish. And to an even bigger point is PDA had the largest group of girls moving along this National Signing Day to D1,D2, D3 colleges. No other club was even close. If college is your ultimate goal. Just an opinion. Don’t Hate.

You know they want the money if you are talking DA (or any club, really). The requirements mean that they are losing money by having less 'elite' teams due to age banding, so the rosters expand to compensate. It looks like the clubs will go to a younger pre-DA year, like pre-ECNL next year, too.

So picture this scenario...club gets DA brand with press release...
Players flock to the club for tryout and dreaming of making the DA team...do you think the club will add whatever number of teams they need to keep the non-DA players?
F... A they will. All about money!!!

Except that they did not do that.

How about you say "the club I know didn't do that"
I know many clubs that did.

In response to the post about TSF winning at all costs, my son has played for TSF for the past two and a half years. That has not been my experience at all.

Which club has the worst coach sideline behavior? Coaches that scream at their players or yell at the ref or trash talk opposing team.

Anonymous said...

The worst I’ve seen was stallions... constant badgering of his own players calling them the worst and worse... players on the field that talked trash and couldn’t back it up- fc copa and cherry hill. Worst parents that were loudest and least knowledgeable, Washington twp and Wall township. Best parents and team play: westfield and fc berna

so PDA pulls out of DA and says there will be 2 ECNL teams - 2 top flight teams and everyone should be proud to be a part of something so big - I hope everyone uses their brain - most have their girls play ECNL to go to the ECNL showcases and nationals - if only 1 team goes - why are you on an ECNL team anyhow? they just want to keep our money and keep us from going elsewhere - its all about money at the end of the day - business as usual

So why is PDA leaving the DA?

Anonymous said...

PDA and Stars leaving the DA means the Northeast conference of ECNL is now much stronger than the DA conference(s) in the area. This is a mess

I always viewed GDA as a power play by US Soccer. I'm not surprised any club would pull out of GDA. Who needs the interference from US Soccer. PDA and FC Stars have a long track record of developing players. US Soccer should be asking PDA and FC Stars how to grow the game, not trying to micromanage their operations. There a many national organizations that do a great job promoting youth sports. US Soccer is not one of them.

It sure seems like DA will be a bust in this area. The first year hasn't been competitive due to the new clubs added, and now the issue will be worse with PDA leaving the mid-atlantic. If a bunch of other top clubs around the country leave as well, like rumored, it's hard to see this league lasting.

I should say that not having had the ECNL experience, the refs have been good, the tournaments / showcases have been well run and have had very good level of competition. That comp level really illustrates the weakness of the local division.

Biggest problem with GDA is the sub rules. How does a kid learn to play sitting, how can a coach talk to a player struggling that day and help them past it if the player comes off and cannot go back in till next weekends game. Anyone else think the fields in North Carolina were less then good. All the time and money to play average talent on muddy sub par fields. College rules allow subbing as many times as they want, why not play as college does? Just a few reasons why DA does not work.

Anonymous said...

Agree. And the fields in NC were not good.
