U13 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...

what was score?

Anonymous said...

6-1 yellow and 1-0 stallions

Anonymous said...

Wrong. 4-1 SDFC and I believe it was 2-1 Stallions

Anonymous said...

Anyone know the score of the final?

Anonymous said...

SDFC 3-0

Anonymous said...

Stallions lost?

Ahhhh.... too bad....

Anonymous said...

Stallions were off their game on Sunday. Usually give SDFC a better fight and only lose by 1.

9:34 - Maybe yellow raised their game this spring. They had three lopsided wins.

At least there weren't any protests. Ooops, sorry I meant "appeals"

11:27-They beat up some bad teams. Congrats.

Anonymous said...

Out of curiosity, if all those teams were bad, which teams are good? The Pda teams that are too chicken crap to play in the cup for fear that they might actually lose a game in the state like Barcelona did? Are there any other good teams in the state?

Curious what everyone is thinking about DA at this age (2004)? CSA vs NYCSC vs PDA, the whole concept in general.

Anonymous said...

CSA??? Come on! DA will take time and doesn't mean a thing at this age? But PDA will be the power house on the girls side. They always have been and between DA and ECNL they have it all. CSA doesn't even have a successful girls program and is hoping to bring together decent teams from tryouts??? PDA doesn't even have to look outside their own program to build these teams and eventually the best players will end up at PDA. How does anyone think CSA will be successful on the Girls DA side when they have never been proven successful on the boys side. Red Bulls for the boys and PDA for the girls. Always has been always will be!!!! Their programs are run the right way with great coaching that stick around for the long hall! Don't waste your time or money at CSA. Other local programs will get you further then CSA!

The boys want nycfc if they can get it. Always is not a useful word to use about anything youth soccer related unless you mean always changing.

GDA needs to maintain a level of super selectivity to achieve the objective of developing world class players. Tryouts for GDA should be invite only, the number of GDA programs kept to a minimum, and players should be able to billet so they can live and go to school near the facility.

Anonymous said...

Nycfc made a smart move by deciding to run a GDA. Lots of families have boys and girls involved in the sport and appreciate nycfc's involvement in the girl's game.

Anonymous said...

A soccer boarding school would exclude even more talent from the game. Who can afford that?

Anonymous said...

A billet system is different from boarding school. US Soccer or the club pays a family to house the player. That would add players to the program.

Still.sounds like adding costs of reducing costs.

Meant sounds like adding costs and not reducing costs.

You do realize by having the mindset that PDA is the only game in town is exactly the narrative that PDA wants out there.

There is so much soccer in New Jersey. I'm just stating fact since I have been around all levels of New Jersey soccer for 30 years. And no I do not have a player at PDA! No comment on the boys Red Bulls? Like I said its just facts! Many players from all levels of NJ soccer have been successful. I'm just sick of listening to not knowledgeable people on this blog trying to convince themselves and everyone else that their daughters are the best because they make "CSA" and most likely played politics to make that happen. You deal with the devil you will get burnt. If your daughter is that talented and that committed to the game of soccer she can play wherever makes her happy now and by the age of 16 an organization like PDA will add her if she is that talented. Just make sure you have a great trainer wherever you are and stop wasting your money and burning your daughter out at a young age!

Sorry PDA, for players on a budget...the tuition free age groups at the csgda are pretty irrisitable.

Someone else drinking funny lemonade that Cedar Stars is giving out!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

So you would rather have your daughter be the 18 th player on PDA DA and pay for her to not play in games over going to CSA DA, having them cover it and her playing meaningful minutes in games?

Anonymous said...

Is that a trick question?

No

2:49 - The conversation on this blog was about GDA which is supposed to be about finding and developing super elite soccer players throughout the U.S. PDA is the only club in NJ that has super elite girls teams at every age group and does so year after year. My daughter does not play at PDA but anytime they've beaten a PDA team it has meant something. It remains to be seen whether CSA will ever challenge PDA. CSA has no proven track record for developing super elite talent and bought their way in to GDA. It will be 10 years before we know whether CSA can deliver at the super elite level or is just a big club with a lot of very good teams. I am not going to knock them for trying.

PDA does a great job for affluent talent. Does a whole lot of nothing for lower income talent.

You don't need to respond about all the scholarships available.

Anonymous said...

Only thing CSA has going for it is Tab Ramos investment. No TR, No DA. CAA hasn't done squat at this age group ever. I'm a town parent and even I know that.

Anonymous said...

Agreed, Soccer, like most elite sports in the US, has a pay to play model. Finances is an area where CSA has an advantage but only because a wealthy club owner is covering the costs. US Soccer is not doing nearly enough to address the costs of youth soccer.

Anonymous said...

If you live near Toms River or south of that, CSA is a decent option. It is better than the Wildcats and the money grab knows as PDA Shore.

@ May 12 1:45 pm--what do you mean that they made a smart move by adding GDA at NYCFC? Wondering if this is a worthwhile option for girls or just an extension of WCFC.

Anonymous said...

Meant they can maybe sell more tickets and merchandise and attract advertising. Here families choose between two mls club to support. One runs a GDA.

This entire thread makes me so incredibly happy that my classy, athletic daughter plays rugby. What a bunch of crazies ya'll are...

Anonymous said...

1107. Then why are you on a soccer board?
My kid plays soccer-can you direct me to a rugby group?

Anonymous said...

His daughter plays soccer- but the way his daughters Pda parents are- it's like a rugby team.

Anonymous said...

Rugby parent is on this page because it's the most entertaining site on the 'net.

Anonymous said...

Just curious, where do 12 year old girls play rugby in NJ. Although its more likely that 11:07 is from West Virginia.

progression from soccer for an athlete, otherwise you can stick with soccer or lacrosse.

Does anyone know how girls PDA took for their DA team?

Wow, SJEB got crushed by SDFC

Anonymous said...

SDFC beat them in the fall too. Not as bad though.

What happened in that game for SJEB to loose 1-6?!

Anonymous said...

It's called soccer sometimes teams have a bad game and you play a team that has a great game.

Anonymous said...

or not....

Sometimes a team is just better

Anonymous said...

Played both SJEB and SDFC teams this spring season and although SJEB team is very good I think SDFC is at another level. They will easily win the EDP league.

Anonymous said...

I have seen both SDFC and PDA Lyon play this year and SDFC moves the ball better and looks more organized. PDA has the better athletes and deeper bench.

Don't forget to register for the Liverpool FC summer soccer camp !

CSA is a Money grab. The Mens devision does not have one competitive team. The women's teams are not looking very good. I asked as many parents at the second tryouts who the coaches were going to be. Not one knew. Not ONE. I will not just blindly give my daughters development or my money to a club that can't even tell you who their coaches are going to be. I looked on their web page, no coach has been with the club for more than 10 months. Says something when you can't keep your coaches. PDA, PDA south, SJEB and even NJX are better clubs. Its your money and kid!

So a billionaire is spending millions on a state of the art facility, to make a few thousand dollars? Your logic is flawed.

MFA wins DELCO. Tough ECNL schedule seems like it paid off.

Mfa now we have officially lost your minds . Pda is all any of you town players should strive to be .

How many 04 teams are the Monmouth Cedar Stars putting together for the fall? DA, ECNL, NPL, EDP?

Anonymous said...

I am pretty sure Cedar Stars doesn't have ECNL. I would guess DA and then maybe NPL and if they have enough kids an EDP team. Just a guess though.

Great job today Average-Game with your 2005 team. We know they looked better than the other teams even though they lost 2-4 and 0-6. The flair and style was such a pleasure to watch. Ha. #fraud.

Anonymous said...

this blog is pretty quiet. Did SJEB get any better for the 2017/18 season?

Anonymous said...

Any better? As in did they swap their bottom three for stronger players?

Anonymous said...

One of their starters went to pda

When does 04 become u14 officially?

phann son said...

So who did you see SJEB play? And what exactly made them unimpressive?

11:14 has pretty high standards for 13 year olds. The team makes a national finals and you cannot given them any credit.

Anonymous said...

Watched some of the SDFC v San Diego game on YouTube

San Diego team was impressive. Overall stronger team.
Doesnt mean SDFC is a 'bad team' just isn't at the same level as the San Diego team.
