Voorhees just had a 1-1 game with Crush, and only beat MFA 2-0. I don't think they are on par with those other three right now. Between EDP and the state turney there is lots of very good soccer to go this fall.
If you look at Voorhees's GOT SOCCER site it will show Voorhees does not score many goals. Most scores are 2-0, 3-0 etc. Look at the goals against ratio, one of strongest in the region if not the country. The defense on that team is a wall! The team has only one game since 2012 that the team was scored upon 3 times! No need to run up scores. No need to play pass around. I'm sure Voorhees would love a chance to play PDA on 8v8! That whole team would say bring it I bet.
I think Voorhees would win small sided. Lyon's speed and passing ability lend themselves to be better at 11v11. 8v8 ends up becoming a Futsal game.
At this point I don't think the field size would matter.
Just saw the last few posts. I agree Voorhees would win. I wish they were playing this weekend at the EDP event. I just looked at their GOT SOCCER. The team has only lost three times since March, and only by one goal. The only team close to them is Lower Merion, and Voorhees has beaten them plenty of times. Face facts Voorhees in a unique team. Town team that plays better then club teams. What is seems to me is a strong group of girls from the same town that just happen to be great young players. Their record speaks for itself, Jeff Cup winners and State Cup winners.... We will have to see what happens this season, but from the looks of it, they are on the same path as last year.
Why did Voorhees (and the rest of other "top" teams) choose to stay 8v8 for U11?
The overwhelming majority of teams are playing 8v8 at U11, not just some of the other "top" teams. Kudos to Voorhees and the other town teams that keep school friends together at the younger ages. I'm hearing of a trend towards 8v8or 9v9 next year at the U12 age. Is anyone hearing the same thing?
8v8 field is too small for u 12 girls. Even for some u 11 teams. Seen most teams play at this age group. IMO PDA Lyon is far more talented and deeper than the rest.
Yes, majority of the regional leagues are going to be 8v8 at U12. EDP and JAGS will offer both as the do now. They are close to adopting a larger field size requirement for u11/u12.
Think the top the teams are doing each other a disservice by not playing directly with each other. EDP u11 is a joke with lopsided match ups. How do these "top" teams expect to do well nationally when they aren't playing the best at the local level. 8v8 or 9v9 is a joke at u12. Voorhees, world class, crush, PDA Lyon should be playing each other every other week if they are the top teams. Waste of time playing other teams.
I watched the Jps vs Sjeb east game today wow what a blow out 7-0 and barons played keep away the second half it was crazy thought Jps was better
My daughter and I came over to the farm early (she plays u11 8v8). I wanted to see the Jersey Premier and Barons E game. And I have to say that there are a couple decent players on Jersey Premier BUT there seems to be an issue with some of the girls. Seems like they didnt want to pass often, keeping the ball to themselves no matter their position to try and get the goal and sometimes looked lazy not putting in the effort to run. They did look good the first 15-20 minutes then it went south. They had a girl here and there open clear as clear could be and they wouldn't pass. If you want to win you have to play as a team. And that I didn't see from Jersey Premier but I did see that with the Barons E. Job well done.
Bad loss for the Sjeb east team didn't let a goal in the whole tourny and loss on a own goal...team looked like it feel apart the last game...Sjeb had a lot of chances to score just couldn't finish...that's soccer better team can't always win...I still think Lyon is the top team after watching barons play...they let there emotions beat them...Jps u lost to barons east and barons west team face the fact Jps is not a strong team and that's the truth....wait till all the 8v8 teams go 11v11 then the comp will be even stronger
What happened to Hamilton Rush? First, why were they in the third flight of 8v8 and second, how do they not win that flight? Missing girls, injuries?
Barons East are a fanominal team. Lyon is probably the best. I can't wait till Voorhees moves up to 11v11 to play Lyon. Should make for a very interesting game. Barons East had a great run at the tournament this past weekend but came up against a team that gave them a run for their money. Tough way to lose also. I understand their are strong teams and their are weak teams and a team makes or breaks a win or loss. But some of these weak teams like Match Fit and Jersey Premier and Barons West have a few strong players regardless of how the rest if the team plays. It's a shame those stronger players couldn't be on a team together. Oh well, on to the next game kids.
Interesting to see what happens with World Class and NJ Crush this weekend. Off of their overall body of work WC may be the best team at 8v8.
WC wins. Top three crush girls will leave club next year - they always do. All the older teams become very average over time and fade away.
Okay, any of the top 5 teams playing U11 8v8 in NJ this fall, can beat one another. Teams have good days and bad... What it comes down to, is how they perform in the end. Top teams will tie, or loose a game here or there. Does not mean they are a bad team just had a bad day! Hence the Giants on Sunday! Bad day! The team bashing i.e: Crush will loose their top 3 girls, or World Class is just kick and run, Voorhees is the dirtiest team in the state. Let the girls who want it most prove it. I guess a lot will be settled at the EDP CUP in November.
I find it hilarious that grown adults are on a u11G soccer forum putting down teams and little girls. YES.....little girls. Big deal one can kick better than the other. Do you not get they are little girls and not seasoned professional athletes????? Leave the kids alone, shut your mouths on the sidelines, let the little girls play a sport they love and not a sport you wish you were good at.
What is the EDP cup?
@2:23...Well Said. These parents are a joke!!
Brick Angels 2 SJEB East 1PDA Lyon Blue 2 Jackson Wolves 1Middletown 6 Freehold Flash 0JPS 3 Hibernian 2Semi Finals Saturday:Brick vs PDA Lyon BlueMiddletown vs JPSFinals are Sunday...Good luck to all!
Should be great weather for the semis and finals. Looking forward to a wonderful weekend of soccer. Good Luck to everyone in both 8v8 and 11v11.
PDA Lyon is a good team, Vorhees is a good team, NJ Crush is a good team, Middletown is a good team, there a bunch of good teams, no need to fight over who is better. Just enjoy your kids playing at a high level against good teams. Sooner rather than later, all our kids will be grown and all this will be over.It goes fast...sit back and enjoy
Well said 3:36. It will be great to watch how the girls and teams have grown over the last few years and enjoy some great soccer.
Going to be a great weekend for soccer!! Cannot wait for some of these showdowns. SDFC Galaxy v. Voorhees should be great to watch. Both are undefeated this season in EDP league play. Looks like SDFC puts a lot of goals on the board. Voorhees has a great defense system, but lacking on goals this season. I think this game will be close. Whoever wins this game will win the CUP. Crush should beat Hamilton, but I don't think they can beat SDFC or Voorhees, even though they tied them earlier this season.
Predictions for this weekends State Cup semis?
State Cup predictions:8 v 8?11 v 11?
Make your own predictions.
PDA Lyon Blue 1 - Brick 0Middletown 6 - JPS '04 0
Hamilton Wildcats 4 - NJ Crush 0SDFC Galaxy Yellow 1 - Vorhees 0
Surprised by the Hamilton/Crush score. SDFC won it all. That team is really playing well. Like that coach a lot.
Middletown 3 PDA Lyon Blue 0.
SDFC and Middletown played in EDP cup - result decided in PKs. Good game by both teams.
Who won in the pks
I believe it was SDFC after 6 PKs
Middleton was the better team yesterday, too bad their parents again overshadowed the girls play by screaming for a red card every time one of their players went down. Embarrassing actually.
Sdfc played Hamilton Middletown played pda In case it wasn't clear
Yes. Two different sets of comments going on here. Some about the SDFC game versus Middletown a few weeks ago (the PK reference) at the EDP tourney and some about the finals Sunday where Middletown played PDA Lyon Blue and SDFC played Hamilton.
The PDA goalie took out a Middletown player on breakaway, no attempt at the ball. A penalty kick was given and converted, however, the ref blew the call, it should have been a red card and a penalty kick, at the very least a yellow card. Please know the game if you are going to post on a blog. Thank you
Never saw a red card given in an eleven year old game. Grow up buddy. It sounds like you won the game and were awarded a pk. Just shut your mouth. I did respect Middletown not anymore.
Middletown parents are probably the worst out there...they def overshadow their kids. It's not right. Their kids have talents. Let the talent price itself...keep your mouths shut.
You follow the rules when playing soccer. You don't get to pick and choose which ones you want to follow. If you don't want to follow the rules, don't play. Sounds like alot of people are very bitter....I hope you find what makes you happy in life and stop trying to live through your children...it's sad
PDA Lyon lost? I thought they were unbeatable. I'm surprised we havent heard the PDA talking points about how in a few years they will be better, etc. The parent bashing is usually the 1st step. Enjoy Middletown!
It was actually PDA Lyon Blue that lost to Middletown
Laughing at someone for being a caring parent when their child is hurt is sad. What is wrong with people when you ridicule humanity. This is a physical sport, injuries happen but there is still room for compassion and understanding what another parent must be feeling.
You're right about one thing 1:41, that was a PDA Lyon parent doing the parent bashing. Such a shame that people can't just be respectful to each other on this blog.
Does anyone know the score of SDFC vs Hamilton 8v8 game yesterday?
SDFC won 3-1
I came to the site to see if SDFC or Hamilton won the 8V8 State Cup and I see people just acting crazy. Does anyone know the score of the Hamilton-SDFC game?
Whatever happened to the trfc fire team? They played in jags last season
Fire is now PDA Shore as they bought into but are really the same team just paying more money to be on it with new uniforms. They were eliminated 1st round of State Cup.
PDA shore (I think is mostly made of trfc fire they may have dropped a few & picked up a few) lost in pk's in state cup to Middletown. I wonder how those parents feel about their choice to move/merge over to PDA????
"PDA Lyon lost? I thought they were unbeatable. I'm surprised we havent heard the PDA talking points about how in a few years they will be better, etc. The parent bashing is usually the 1st step. Enjoy Middletown!"Lets be real. It was Lyon Blue, not Lyon. I think Lyon beat Middletown 3-0 in a 35 minute 1/2 game scrimmage earlier this season.
Lets be real...if not for one particular player, you are just a good team, not a great one..Besides you have the best team money can buy
One player does not make a team. I guess this particular player scored all 32 goals in their 4 wins. Oh and she played defense that hasn't allowed a goal yet. I know there is jealousy out there but please keep it real. Good luck to all.
You are the one taking shots at other teams, acting all high and mighty. You just can't let other teams enjoy their success. Your team didn't even play the state cup, why are you even on this board starting trouble? I am pretty sure your coach wouldn't appreciate your bad attitude towards other teams and other peoples children. I feel sorry for you, that you need to tear others down to build yourself up..... Classless.
Not sure what you are referring to? Please explain.
I don't think there is anything wrong with calling out teams with parents who are obnoxious on the sidelines during games.
Especially ones whose parents run on the field.
I just read some of these posts and have a few observations/opinions1. One of the post that references a particular player from PDA and the PDA parent knew exactly who it was and got very defensive..I think the post kinda hit close to home.2. The day PDA beat Middletown in a scrimmage, the PDA parent forgot to mention PDA then lost to the Marlboro Spirit, who then lost to Middletown..Juts want people to have all the facts..3. I see why PDA parents have the rep they have, well deserved. Very sad for the kids.
The same Marlboro team they beat 6-0 in edp?
So scrimmages only count when PDA wins? BTW, you brought up the scrimmages. Just sayin
Ahh, good old youth sports....it really brings out the best in us parents! I’m sure most would agree that there are a number of very high caliber teams in the area that have great young athletes and are consistently in the winning brackets of leagues & tournaments - some town teams, but mostly academy. Even though it’s far from official (underscore “far”), I think the current top 10 teams ranked on the Gotsoccer website pretty much covers them (rank order notwithstanding!!).We are all into sports & competition - that's why you are reading this blog. We see each other regularly while supporting our children throughout the seasons. This bickering certainly doesn’t foster an atmosphere of sportsmanship on the field or sidelines. I love watching my daughter compete as much as the next parent, but some of you need to chill out. Focus on the development of your daughter's skills, comradery of team, and appreciation of the sport. Team/club rivalries will naturally arise and should be fun & exciting to watch. 10 year old soccer is only a game.
PDA Lyon is always looking for a competitive team to play. Contact the team manager and specify the time and place to play. Let the results speak rather than trash talk on a forum. Lyon is a good team that has already lost to good teams. Would be good for their development to lose to more good teams vs playing keep away for half a game. EDP state cup would have been a waste of time for them at 11v11 as they have easily beaten most of these teams already.
The PDA Lyon post is interesting. It says don't talk trash and goes on to talk trash. Another option would have been to split your team and play 8v8 this year. Instead you bucked the trend of playing 8v8 at U11 and find a shortage of competition. That's your fault. I don't accept the we would have won if we entered position, regardless of past results. Part of sports is the underdog sometimes wins. My take is SDFC and Middleton are state champs. They entered the tournament and won.
For better or worse, PDA Lyon has reached a level of play where very few teams are able to compete with them. I personally think that's impressive. I'm not a PDA parent, but I could easily see why those girls are favored going into their vast majority of matches based on past game results. Should they have split to play 8v8? Play up an age level? Well, I guess that's up to their coaches/trainers to decide what's best for them to grow.On the other hand, I also find it impressive that a few town-based teams are able to be spoken about in the same sentence as top state academies. Kudos to Middletown, Vorhees, and Marlboro!
Marlboro?!?! BwahahahahaAre you serious???
They beat Barons East Bwahahaha…......seriously. Don't hate......appreciate!
One fluke tournament when you load up on guest players means nothing. Your 2-2 league record with 6 goals for and 12 against says more about who Marlboro is.
LOL. Keep living in ignorance. Play the best teams before boasting about being the best. Agree with 3:08....shouldn't boast when you have to rely on ringers....
I guess yesterday was a fluke also? Guess Marlboro had a bunch of guest players again huh? Let's face it, it's anybody's game on any give day. Why? Because they are 9-11 years old. Because they are all still learning new things.
"My take is SDFC and Middleton are state champs. They entered the tournament and won."PDA Lyon has beat many state champs even state champs in the age above their own! Fact is PDA LYON has challenged every single team at U11 & U12 and they are playing better than ever right now. EVERY single result this year has involved taking players off the field down to 10 or 9 and taking the goalie out to let her run around.
To bad you can't buy yourself some class
Looks like tons of EDP games this weekend in 8v8 top flight . First place is locked but should be race to finish from 2nd through 4th.....
EDP league will come down to the final games. World Class score vs Voorhees was not as close as it looks. Reports from the game state that Voorhees was over run. Voorhees luster has fallen recently, should be interesting to see what happens with that team in the future. Come Monday we will all see who fought and who gave up.
We all know Pda is on a different level. But please let's not be so arrogant.
Best team money can buy
They should consider entering the Woman's World Cup next year. They might actually have a chance against Cameroon or the Ivory Coast.
They don't have to enter any tournaments, it is a waste of their time. They should just quit playing soccer since there is no chance they can ever lose.
How about PDA north continue to play a year up like they always have. I know if I was spending 3800 for my kid to play soccer I sure as heck would not drive 2 hours here and there to be bored winning 8,9,10 to notta.
3800 please. Do some homework. Stop the jealousy.
The funny thing is that in 3-4 years, 1/2 of the girls on the PDA team won't be on the team anymore. The good players that are playing on town teams or for other teams will come over to PDA and the ones that were kept on the team for financial reasons will be cast aside.
They can't be that good. They're not even a top five team in the got soccer rankings.
Well if got soccer isnt ranking PDA, they aren't even worth discussing. seems like a lot of money to be paying to be on a team that isn't even ranked and not playing the champion teams like Middletown or Voohees. They must be playing all B teams in order to keep their winning streak alive.
FYI The Lyon team does not Chase points and gotsoccer as you no is Not real.The team reaches out on aWeekly to teams to play with no response the team will play anyone Willing to play.Have a good dayPs most teams spend good moneyto play ask copa $$
PDA is not 3800 really why is moneyAlways an issue.All clubs if you doThe math pay their fair share so please let the money issue go boringTo hear the issue All the time.
Are the last two posts some kind if weird lyrical poetry with oddly placed capital letters?
I'm done professor you figure it out?
PDA needs their own blog. With big tournaments coming who is playing in Bethesda next weekend?
People need to stop worrying about PDA. I'm sure they don't care about you.
I agree PDA does need their own blog... Just looked up the Bethesda Adidas Tourney, looks like only team at U11 playing from NJ is Voorhees. Lower Merion is there as well. Two great teams...
Bethesda @ U11 11v11 or still 8v8?
I'm guessing it's 8v8. Besides Voorhees and Lower Merion, there are also HMMS Eagles (PA) and Horsham Dynamite (PA) so you have the top 3 ranked PA East teams playing in the same tourney. Each of the 4 teams above are in different brackets of the top flight so it should make for an interesting final.
I would not call vorhees a top team. They are in fourth place in their division. Numbers don't lie.
How did Vorhees v SDFC pan out. Still looks like 2nd place on down not finalized in the 8v8 1st EDP division. Good competition this fall in this division for sure!
Voorhees v SDFC was not played due to weather.
11/6, 10:29...Are you stupid, ignorant or both?You say that about Voorhees when they had only played 4 games. What's your opinion now? They're in second with one game still to play. And no, I'm not a Voorhees parent
@8:35. Totally agree. Must be a PDA parent. Surprised they aren't on here boasting about their win over U12 NJX.
Voorhees v SDFC was cancelled due to the weather? Was there too much sun?
10 goals in 6 games against average teams. That's nothing to brag about. Beat world class then we'll talk.
Ok, you just answered my question...you're definitely stupid.World Class, SDFC and NJ Crush are "average teams"? Ok palBtw, they lost 2-1 at World Class and tied NJ Crush 1-1. Those scores are sooooooo lopsided, I can see how you made your unintelligent statement. They still have a game left against SDFC.
I hope your children don't see you act this way. They are children. 10-11. That's what's average. Geez these kids are developing at this age. Anyone can beat anyone at any given time. You all act like your kids are going to the Olympics someday. Chill out. Sad part is I hear this crap on the sidelines allllllll the time. It's disgusting how parents talk about other people's kids and those kids hear it. Grow up folks. This is why kids quit or in your words are "average" because they hear it and think they will never succeed. How about everyone throw some positive comments out there instead of putting little kids down. Pathetic.......
Like I said beat world class.
This forum is a bad reality show. You know it is garbage but it can be hard to look away.
Regardless of the perceived level of competition 50 goals+ scored and 0 allowed is ridiculous for PDA Lyon.You have to remember teams like Vorhees and SDFC will only dilute their concentration of talent when they get to 11 v 11 but PDA seems to accelerated their concentration of talent - so to say - by just pulverizing teams on huge fields.
Stop it, there is literally no competition in that division. That is such a joke
There is no competition in this age group period.
There might not be enough competition for you, but if you're a 10/11 year old girl, there's plenty. The problem is the 8v8/11v11 transition. In EDP, only a small percentage of teams have decided to move to the big field in U11, most have decided to stay 8v8. With such few teams in the two 11v11 divisions, it might have benefitted to have only 1 division consisting of 9 teams. This way a team gets rolled by PDA only once and the rest of the division can benefit from the different competition.It will be interesting to see which 8v8 teams decide to go big field next year - or maybe even next season.
PDA Lyon is very very deep. The absolute last best forward/midfielder on the roster could be the best goal scorer on Vorhees for instance. Not one single player on SDFC will come to tryouts and then start for Lyon at U12.
I really hope this is not a real PDA parent. If it is, I have a good feeling for who it is. I am a real PDA parent and think we are good, but so are many other teams. Crush, sdfc, and vorthees are all very strong too. Vorhees for being a real town team is awesome. We were beat last year by breakers and have not played many very strong teams yet from other regions. The Midwest teams are usually very big and strong and I'm sure we will see that soon. There are several girls on sdfc that could come and take starting positions on PDA - some people don't understand the game.
Also a PDA parent here. I was in bed by 10 so it wasn't me. No way would a PDA parent post that. We know our team is good but also know it's a long journey. Please understand that we do not go on here and brag. It's being done by a bunch of trolls.
Does pda take many outside players, or do they pull from their b teams?
Yes. Tryouts in the spring. Last year they had about 50. All are welcome.
IThe transition from 8v8 ( small sided) to 11v11 larger field is huge adjustment. This a a huge reason there is not much competition at 11v11. They are in transition they are 10/11 yr old girls learning new positions on a bigger field some w new coaches & new teammates. My daughter plays for a PDA team (not Lyon). Lyon is a top notch team but reality is....they have a year under their belt of playing 11v11. They played up last year. Honestly, I give their coach credit. He got them ready early.
7:25 & 8:10 is the same PDA parent that has been on here for a while & we know who he/she is because you are always talking about this website../
Whoever it is they seem to know a lot about other teams in the age group. Get a life.
The one PDA Lyon parent polluting the blog is a well known troll. His daughter is a good player and a nice girl, it's too bad she has such an ahole for a Dad.
@958 I was the the 725 poster and was my first and I didn't post the other one. They were both fine, what is your issue? I have a feeling what it is, you troll.Do you even know what a website is?
Anyone know who won in the Bethesda Tournament?
Yes, you did. Nothing worse than a comment like this. Did you just get home? My prediction is that you end up 4th in edp bracket, lucky the top 3 didn't show up. I think I will root for PDA if they ever play you, never thought I would.... Go sdfc.
Three guest players on Vorhees in Maryland.
I would take PDA -7 against vorhees.
Voorhees won Bethesda....Three guest players for Voorhees this weekend?? Who where the three, just curious since my daughter plays for Xtreme. We had one guest player who was a 9 year old from a u10 team. She was a defender. She replaced our very tall defender who could not make it this weekend. We had our rematch from Spirit United with Lower Merion for the final. The better team one. Not like the spirit tourney that went to PKs. Lower Merion is a great team their record proves that. They will win some and we will win some. Nationally ranked top 20 teams will spar back and fourth. We look forward to seeing them at Jeff Cup. Bring on the haters about Voorhees. Last 12 months Jeff Cup champs, NJ State Cup Champs, finalists at Spirit and Champions in Bethesda. Not bad for a town team...
If you already have a full roster, why would you need a 9 year old to replace your best defender? The coach doesn't trust his bench players? Hope the rest of the team isn't reading this blog.
Obviously 5:48 doesn't know much about soccer. Did you ever stop to think maybe the girl is good enough to play with older girls and maybe they are going 11v11 in the fall next year and are looking to add? I know I would allow a strong guest player to see if they mesh well with my girls and can handle the pressure of older teams if I wanted to take her on. "Common sense isn't so common anymore"
To 9:14. Please stop with the top 20 in the nation talk. You're embarrassing yourself. I'll give you top 20 in the region. Go chase some more points.
@914 - please learn how to write before you respond again.
Juz likes all you peoples on dis here blog iz never graduated from high schools. How abouts you play some good teams then you can how do you say pop off. You be just average. Wher do I find spell check on this site!
Gooooooo. Vorhees . We are 2nd raked team in the nation. Oh yeah.
Congrats to Voorhees, #2 in the nation is awesome. Glad to see someone believes GotSoccer
Don't you people know PDA Lyon is the greatest team in the history of youth sports? No matter what happens, we're PDA!
I'm a PDA parent and the last comment made was just ignorant & makes us all look stuck up & cocky. Any team can get beat on any given day. Give the other teams credit where credit is due.
Season is over!!!
Season may be over but history is not. Next season is another season. again if this is the same PDA parent you are showing how arrogant you are. Just go out on the field and support the kids . Plain & simple. As a PDA parent one to another our season is never over. We play year round. Jags, edp, outdoor tourneys maybe over til spring but it's never over.
I think we all know these comments were not made from a PDA parent. Anyone can go on here and make ridiculous statements. Anyone can bash any club without being held responsible. From here on out if you have something negative to say about PDA or any other club put your name behind it. Have a good holiday and see you in the spring.
Your posting anonymous as well...I don't have to post my name to prove I am a PDA parent nor post a picture of my daughter in her PDA uniform to prove I am a PDA parent. The point is you are giving us (Pda parents) a bad rep the way you speak about other teams & brag & boast. I'm sure I'll see you at our 24 hr soccer marathon that runs both at the north facility & at the shore. You just keep proving how ridiculous you are. Once again support ALL the girls they are 10/11 yrs old.
At 9:47. I'm on your side you freaking idiot.
Does anyone know if JAGS was played this fall in this age group? I heard some teams were playing, but I haven't been able to find any results.
JAGS was played. They are having major issues trying to get the results and schedules updated on got soccer.
Don't these people in ferguson realize they are representing the black race. Obama got what he wanted. Another reason this guy should resign. This country is a joke.
Hey PDA parent let it goyou sound dumb do you reallyknow.Listen to 1:48
Can anyone shed some light on me in regards IGFA? Tryouts are coming up for U11 Girls and may be interested in going to take a look. I honestly don't know much about this club/team. Thanks.
I can't speak for GFA but I can tell you TSF had tryouts last night and several GFA u-11 and u-12 were there, it was a good turn out.
May I ask where is TSF?
834 did you attend the tryout ? Or just heard about it ?
Who has tryouts in December? Time to retool?
It's for kids who still play with their current team , whatever it is, and want supplemental practice and play with an addtl team
Do any of the ECNL teams offer a winter or summer camp? If so, is it worth the money? Thanks if anyone knows
Oh wow, I didn't know it was for supplemental training - I thought it was for the spring season after reading about the tournaments they want to play in ... now I wish we would have gone! Will there be more tryouts? Or was today it?
Can anyone recommend u8 girls tournaments in NJ that are NOT on Memorial Day? I'm new to this and since this is the youngest group, I thought you could provide advice. April and May ideally.Thanks
I can't name one from personal experience, but you can go to "gotsoccer.com" and click on tournaments to see what you think works best for your team.
To october 5 644pm. It is a lack of organization
to 12/5, 4:15, Lincoln Park runs a one day spring tournament that includes U8s.
Thank you for your information @December 13, 2014 at 9:51 AM
Great soccer weather
Over 60 teams at Jeff cup, went two years ago and I thought it was bad, I think it's getting to big and becoming all about money. Hope you get nice fields, refs, hotels and put in the right flight,.... What I enjoyed the most, was the drive through Washington dc region, almost 9 hours total. At the time I was told how prestigious it was for our team to be selected, I look back and laugh at myself. I think I would rather give pda the money and hang local this spring. Pray that you don't go and play the same NJ teams you always do, this happens often and should be rule number one for tournament directors not to do.
Just saw the schedule and vorhees is playing crush. Sdfc in the same bracket too. Lol.
Can you post link to schedule? I don't see brackets or schedule yet.
Schedule is not out yet won't be out till mid February
There are a lot Betters teams at Jeff cup the PDA...its a 5 hr drive what r u talking about 9 hrs sounds like ur bitter or just trying to start crab cause the blog has been quite there sunshine
4:50. Are you drunk?
Just saw the Jefferson Cup accepted teams. All the same top tier teams. World Class, Lower Merion, Breakers, etc. 11 of the top 25 Got Soccer teams in U11 are accepted and going I would assume. This will be the same situation these teams will face for the next few years. This is what true travel soccer is all about. Go to tourneys and try to get as many points as you can. Sad to say but thats it. Just wait a few years when the showcases start, that's the real pressure!
There should only be two teams from NJ in top flight. GS shouldn't count - some teams play twice as many events. I'm guessing vorhees and sdfc?
@450? How do you know what teams are going to pda? It's a 6 hour drive without any traffic, 5 is impossible. considering the major cities you drive through, plan on 8. No bs - it took us 8.5 last year. I agree Jeff cup should be the best, concerned they are getting to big.
Driving 8 hours to play 3 maybe 4 games at this age is a waste of time and money. It's all a money grab.
I don't know why anyone cares that NJ teams want to travel to Virginia (or any other state) for a soccer tournament. Aside from gas and time in the car, the cost is no different than any other tournament.
I have a question, is njx going back this year for their last beating?50
Does NJX even have a u11 team? I don't follow the "humor"? And what is 50? They should have a breathalyzer hooked up to the keyboards on this blog.
Why does it matter where OTHER teams are playing or how LONG their drives are? Do you want to be a part of their team? How about you worry about yourself for once.
It's a blog u idiot - this is what you do.Some people have experience and want to share - good and bad. If I bought a shitty car and you were on a car blog - would you want to know?Is this your first child playing and first time on blog. How about this - the Manhattan tournament is bad too, weather always sucks, good chance of being cancelled and the kids are miserable playing. Does this offend you too?
Blog? It's more like BLAH........you idiots talk about the same thing over and over and over. No wonder why they keep deleting comments on here. So we don't have to read the same comment over and over and over again.
I thought we just come on here just to read about PDA Lyon?
I thought the BLOG was for how many ways people can misspell Voorhees.
LOL @at 9:31 AM. Funniest blog comment of the year, so far.
The idiots are back. Not 2 weeks into the new year and they still can't stop thinking about PDA and how to bash them. Can we at least wait til the season starts in 3 months.
I agree with the 2:31 post. Everyone needs a villan. That obviously is the Lyon team. Until you beat them stop talking about them. I'm sure they feed off that. I've seen them play and currently no one can touch them in the state. So let's all worry about our own teams and stop saying negative things about them or anyone else.
I don't see anyone "bashing" Lyon. Great team, great club. Its just the 1 idiot Lyon parent who posts all the time we all can't stand (including parents from his own club).
Agree 100 percent and yes I'm from pda
Why don't you call the PDA parent out on here? Other clubs do it.
I don't know who it is - they just need to shut up.
I realize this is a u11 blog, but any recommendations for my daughter who will be u11 next year? STA? SDFC?
It is on and on and on and on about PDA teams on every age group on this blog.As far as Manhattan Tourney weather goes...IMO warmly dressed kids are just fine playing outside if it is cold/windy. My girls are out playing school yard recess/afterschool soccer all winter. They only complain when the school says they cant go outside. It is not fun for the spectators however.
Hat and gloves with some grip for throw ins are critical. Single or double underarmor on arms and legs depending on temperature. Warm jacket and blanket for the bench. One player on my kid's team had warm apple cider in a thermos this fall...I am going try that next cold game.
Hey 6:49Really anyone can post negative if you don't have proof then youShould check yourself.

Looking at the bracket above some of the EDP teams are playing 11v11. I like that idea. Might as well start now since they all will be playing that way come fall. Not sure I would pick Jeff Cup to start but, go for it! Knowing what I know about Bracket A U11 8v8 Voorhees should be able to cruise thru. Lower Merion is one of their biggest rivals but I think Voorhees will pull it out again. Voorhees is gunning for World Class. Lost to them this fall and it did not go well on that team. Can't wait to see what some of these teams do come September. Bigger teams adding players, who from what team will jump ship? Who is going to Academy teams....
None of them are going to academy teams since there are no girls "academy teams" in New Jersey. Voorhees will do well because they are a very good team but they won't "cruise" through anything. What do you know about the Charlotte or Cleveland teams that lead you to believe that? Trust me when I tell you that those two clubs are way more respected and successful than 99% of the clubs from NJ.
7:08AM, who said anything about "all girls academy" I was referring to players moving to academy teams like PDA, Barron's etc. Players seeking more training, and options then town teams can offer. Second question, cruising thru the competition in regards to Voorhees, I simply looked up their ranking on got soccer.com, reviewed who they played and their record and I formed my "opinion" that way. If you have a better formula to form a conclusion, please share with the blog. My daughter has played against Voorhees for two years, the team is extremely strong. I wish them luck, and hope they play state cup this year so we can play again and try to beat them! I know they have a new trainer this year.
Yeah new trainer
Does anyone know when manhatten accepted teams are posted?
Sorry manhattan with an a
Three jersey teams in same bracket, same group - at Jeff cup. Long way to go to play each other. Thinking twice about play 11v11?
It's only because there is only one 11v11 flight. 99% of the country is small sided at U11. There are seven 8v8 flights at U11
