VIEWER REQUEST! U11G U11 Girls Youth Soccer

U11 girls' teams are facing the 11 v. 11 playing field for the first time. 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...

8v8 first division is by far the strongest. I'd guess Lyon is still going to play a U12 Jags schedule. Interesting.

Anonymous said...

Why do you care where Lyon play? Worry about your own team. We will be fine. Thanks

Anonymous said...

Lyon is smart playing older kids it will only make them stronger in the long run...people worry about other teams way to much....they r a good team have to give them that but other teams r getting better should be a good year of soccer...

Anonymous said...

Nobody is worrying about Lyon. Don't be so uptight. I was just curious because clearly the way the EDP brackets shaped up you can't make a competitive schedule with those teams. I have lots of respect for your team and PDA in general and have lots of friends there.

PDA Lyon does have the weaker bracket in the group....why is the NY team in the south bracket and not the north just curious that confused me

Anonymous said...

I just do t get the move to 8v8? Why because that's what they do in Europe? The American brand of is different, and as we all saw during the World Cup needs improvement, but in a few years our soccer will be ready for the world stage. Please don't hand out that "more touches" stuff that their force feeding us! Bigger fields means more space, more touches, more need for athletic ability!

Anonymous said...

I agree u have 10 girls on the field touching the ball instead of 7...at u-11 and 12 the goalie can't punt the ball almost the length of the field...I rather have them on the bigger field learning positions and how to play them it is a different game at 11v11

Anonymous said...

Has nothing to do with touches. The small field forces them to be more technical, and make quicker decisions, less nad habits. 90% of the clubs in NJ are staying 8v8.

Anonymous said...

90% of clubs can't get 18 talented girls so they stick with 8 v 8. They try to eak out one more year of being competitive with their 5 or 6 good athletes they throw out there. When you get on the big field for 60 minutes your talent will thin out and the top academies of the world overwhelm you with depth of soccer talent.

Anonymous said...

LOL. Yes, that's the reason. 90% of ECNL clubs are 8v8 at U11. Yours may not be, but I can guarantee the decision to move to 11v11 was not based on development.

Anonymous said...

Lets do the math. 4 u11 Pda teams multiply by 6 extra players per team. 24x 2000= $$$. Obviously going 11v11 was for development.

Anonymous said...

So every club that goes 11v11 is out for money? Seriously people.

Anonymous said...

My kid is going 11v11 and I am happy about it..if your kid is a good player it doesn't matter what size field they play on they either have it or they don't..8v8 keeps a lot of the town teams together for another year....just like anyone that goes off of got soccer ranking that is a joke...

Anonymous said...

8:02. If not for the money than please tell me the reason to go full sided. 90% of u11 are staying small sided this season in NJ. The rest of the country and world are also small sided at u11. Obviously it is not for development.

1:35 you couldn't be more wrong when you say 8v8 keeps town teams together for another year. All the leagues that the town teams play in are full sided Mosa etc. and you are correct that kids either have it or they don't and most likely can play on the big field that doesnt mean that they should. You need better first touch, quicker decision making and more accurate passing on the small field.. Full sided promotes sloppy play and at this age all the basics I mentioned above are more important than anything else..
Finally what's your rush to play full sided? They have the next 6 years for that.maybe your kid isn't good enough to crack the starting lineup but now with 11 they get to play

Anonymous said...

Wow you really trying to crack on a 10 yr old girls ur a tuff guy

Anonymous said...

It's strange that the 11v11/8v8 thing is such an emotional issue for some. I'm not really sure whether switching to 11v11 at U11 or at U12 is really such a make or break decision for player development. 8v8 on a big enough field is good. If the field is too small it turns into a puntfest. Similarly, 11v11 on too big of a field is not so great at U11 either.

And it could be a lot worse. Here in PA we play 8v8 at U12 and don't switch over until U13. 8v8 at U12 is just awful to watch what with all the goal kicks landing near the other teams penalty arc.

To change the subject, below are the most preliminary of flights for the Spirit tournament. In PA, the two best teams are HMMS and Lower Merion. Lower Merion just beat HMMS 1-0 this past weekend.

Some teams will have trouble getting enough girls for 11v11...well at least good players rather then roster fillers...that's when a lot of people go to the academy teams from town team...and you also is girls that leave for other sports a lot of things can happen..that's why PDA and the barons get better every year they have a constant draw..more so PDA cause it a bigger more established club....

Anonymous said...

It has nothing to do with better or worse. A parent isn't going to drive 30 minutes longer for the next Mia Hamm to play in Hazlet or Nutly, but they will to say yes she plays for PDA. There will be the top team which is an extramly talented team and then the rest. The rest will fund the top team by paying more and picking up the slack for the girls that get a free ride to come play at PDA. It is a system or business what ever you'd like to call it. In the end they send half of that top team to D1 schools. The rest? How many teams at U11 girls next year?

Anonymous said...

Top team they are 10 and 11 stop smoking the wacky stuff relax and see where your kid is at in 3 yrs..a lot could change kids may not even play soccer then..enjoy it now nobody knows what the future holds..yes PDA is a good club but you parents go over board thinking you are gods get off PDA nuts..
PS
not the top team at this age group...

Anonymous said...

They are according to got soccer rankings.

Anonymous said...

Re-check those got soccer "rankings"... cause if you are going by them then they are not #1 right now... You can't really be going by got soccer rankings at this age. Are you? Any given team could be #1 according to got soccer all they have to do is win a tournament with enough points to put them over other team points. Example current team in #1 position received 1200+ points in a tournament where they play 2 teams. And believe me this team is a great team and in my opinion is 1 of the top teams in this age group but it clearly shows that got soccer at the beginning of the season for this age group is a joke. I mean come on look at where Voorhees, PDA Barcelona, Brick, are ranked. Shit there are teams not even listed that are clearly better teams than those who are ranked do to the fact that they haven't played for point tournaments. You can not go base on got soccer.

Relax Vorhees parent. You'll get your shot one day. You don't have to explain the whole system we get it. Actually got soccer ranking are a joke all together. Whether it be the beginning middle or end of a season.

Vorhees parent? Relax about what? Not a Vorhees parent. Just a parent who can give credit to good teams when credit is due regardless of the Club. I was just making a point since someone was so quick to throw got soccer out there. Why do people get so offended when someone gives a non confrontational opinion and give credit to other teams other than their own. Seems like the one who needs to relax is you who automatically attacks a "team" without even knowing who the comment came from. You must be a joy to live with.

Anonymous said...

11:32 11v11 at this age is counter to good development and that is why most teams are staying 8v8. It has nothing to do with touches. A small field requires players to operate in smaller spaces and be more technical. A larger field does exactly the opposite. There is no good reason to be 11v11 at this age. Lyon I would guess wants the ability to play U12 teams. So I guess I understand them making the move. Doing that, it probably required by club rule all their teams to go 11v11.

Anonymous said...

Crush will be Voorhees again in EDP.

Anonymous said...

8v8 just keeps the slower less technical girls around for another year. A team that pushes and grabs and just feeds the top player the ball can beat any team on the small field. How many times have you watched the better team lose because of the pushing and grabbing. Who calls it? Not the three 16 year old refs or the ref saying "oh there just 11 year old girls". Only my option, but the bigger field is better for the faster skilled players. In theory the smaller field makes plays make better 1v1 decisions, but when the opposition is allowed to hold you, that helps no one. We spend a month every summer in Italy, and they play 8v8 on the bigger field till u14. It is very fast and every kid is in top physical condition. I admit to being a novice at this game, only really watching for maybe the past 10years or so, but after watching the World Cup I'd say US soccer has some possession skilled to be worked on? Let's get it done and get or country to the top of the charts! USA!

Anonymous said...

Do all of the girls play a set position? I don't know if it's a good idea or bad idea at this age. They aren't even done growing yet

They should play everywhere on the field. They will learn to see the game at different spots. It can only help at this age.

LOL at JAGS. Schedules are out, but for some reason they have been unable to figure out how to use Got Soccer. We got our schedule over the weekend. Most of the best teams went to EDP, but still some good teams in JAGS. JAGS has become the best of the town based clubs.

Anonymous said...

JAGS going to Got Soccer changes everything because it becomes about points as suppose to development which this age should be about. Now you have to play everyone in a flight to be judged instead of playing as many teams you want to develop. This ruins the older age groups a team start to chase points.

Yup.

Anyone want to preview/predict the round of 32 state cup games for this weekend. Obviously we aren't focusing enough on results for matches between mostly 10 year old girls ... (jk) ;-) ... I am interested in people's experiences working with the various leagues, particularly the experience of EDP vs JAGS. My impression is EDP has more resources (people) to bring to bear, while JAGS is run by just a couple people, which is probably why they have struggled with schedules, etc ... Are the costs much higher for EDP to pay for those extra resources? Any other major differences besides possibly the level of competition available?

Anonymous said...

EDP is almost 4x the cost of JAGS due to volunteers compared to paid administrators. You get more for your money in JAGS for this age but as you get older the better competition is playing elsewhere.

The Volunteers at JAGs can't figure out how to use Got Soccer. Anyone know the JAGS flighting?

Anonymous said...

I would say if the referees controlled the games from the opening whistle things would be better. The fact that one week you have Ref that knows a push from behind is unacceptable and the following week it's ok to slid tackle from behind and that is ok is what leads to most of the yelling on our side lines. Give it time. I have older kids who play also and the referees get better. Unfortunately the younger kids get the worst referees and it truly hurts the game.

The problem is not with the wildcats winning 12-0. The problem is with Edp letting any team that writes a check join. There are many other lopsided games so far in this age bracket and we are only a couple of games in. At this age and level of soccer teams should not have to give mercy.This is not Rec anymore. I also blame the club for entering their girls in Edp when they must have known they were not ready for this.

There is no excuse for winning 12-0. It is very easy to control the score of games when talent levels are so different. Running up the score shows a complete lack of character and sets a terrible example for the players.

Anonymous said...

The reason coaches do this in EDP is because the tie breaker is goal diff and there is no limit. Now it forces everyone else to do the same thing which is sad - especially for Rage who is obviously in the wrong league.

All EDP has to do is limit goal diff in games to 4 and it will stop.

Again, shame on TN for doing this.

So a developmental league is all about winning, if goal differential comes into play! Shame on all who support this garbage.

Your comment makes no sense. Of course it's partly about winning, it's a sport and there's a winner and a loser. The issue is, they should limit goal diff to prevent teams from running up the score.

PDA South is kind of a mess now. Their facility is under major construction, no home games so far this season. Practices are scattered all over the place. Don't look for any teams to be sharp this fall from PDA South. Hopefully when their new complex is finished things will improve.

You CAN'T be serious. Please tell me you're joking. The team is struggling because the fields are under construction?

The team is struggling because your best player left at the end of last season, two more bolted for SJEB a few weeks ago and another was booted, sorry I mean "she left". So keep telling everyone you're the up and coming team, if you say it enough maybe you will even start to believe it.

I have a long question comment.. We left our travel team for PDA- my daughter is U8. I know she's young and she may be playing a different sport in two years but for now, she loves it and she is very talented.. Anyway we wanted to go to PDA shore, that folded, so we wen to PDA south, nice coach , terrible parents plus we only had 7 girls on the team so every time we played , there were no subs- that was good and bad. Anyway, we decided to pull her out for now. She will continue to play some travel and I have her enrolled in other stuff like Futsal for the winter. But, what do I do for the spring? Try out for PDA North or for NJ Crush or FCCopa- can someone please give me advice.. Thank you in advance.

Anonymous said...

You have to do some research and find out what teams are good at this age if she is a good player you want to to play with good players so she can grow and get better..PDA north is hard to say no to expensive but the north is good PDA south and shore are there to support the north....nj crush puts good teams out...the barons have good training but hit or miss on teams being good..u should contact a few clubs and take her to a practice to see what she likes and see how the teams are..at u-8 ur looking at the training and how good girls are around her to push her

Anonymous said...

The comment I posted about PDA South and their facility under construction was in regards to the entire organization not just a particular team. Sorry for any confusion. I also agree with the 9/27 12:59pm comment. Look around, jump in some practices, see a game or two. Watch the trainer, and more importantly the parents. Many parents can't keep there mouths shut on the sidelines... You will get all you need to know just by listening. The best teams in the area are VERY tight knit groups. NJ Crush and Barrons, seems to be that way and Voorhees as well. By the way just curious is Voorhees a club team? Keep seeing posts about them but little info. Saw them play in Marlton this summer.

PDA Lyon vs SJEB score 8-0. Seems like EDP teams are not evenly matched.

Anonymous said...

Relax PDA parent, that was the SJEB B team.

Anonymous said...

It's a shame that all the talented teams are using 8v8 for a cover up.

Anonymous said...

Like how PDA parent puts Sjeb and not say it was Sjeb west team...I like to see Lyon vs Sjeb east team..but that will never happen

Anonymous said...

I'm not a PDA parent but I can guarantee the SJEB east would not win against Lyon. Ive seen both teams play. And you're right.....it'll never happen.

I like how all the UNtalented teams are playing 11v11 when they're not ready for it.

A U11 south division team plays the same team 3 or 4 times in the regular season - yeah, that's what I would want for my daughter.

Yes you are right thanks to all the team's running to 8v8 you figure!

Why did sjeb put there "A" team in the weaker bracket?

Anonymous said...

That's a great question not fair to the b Team A team is a good squad.

Anonymous said...

Quite frankly why didn't they just put all the 11v11 teams in one bracket? Play each other once and get a taste of each team. I heard through the grapevine there is a parent on sjeb east and a parent on Jersey premier soccer who can't get along and the two teams have been staying away from each other till the dust settles. Whether it's true 100% or not I don't know. Anyone see Jersey Premier soccer play? I hear they have a couple strong players but collectively as a whole they struggle at times.

I think EDP league is crap. Teams need to be more evenly matched for benefit of all. Losing to a team 5+ points and having the winning team pull players and play keep away for remainder of game does t help anyone. EDP should allow better teams to play up a year.

Not sure I know Jps plays the Sjeb east this weekend at EDP cup tourny..u said u seen both teams play and PDA will beat the east u r probably right Lyon is top team right now but when is the last time u seen the east play they r ok they have a strong striker ok mid ok def but that's not enough to beat Lyon yet

Anonymous said...

Jps lost to Marlboro spirit..I say the east will beat Jps with ease but we will find out this weekend...I like to see underdog win it drives other team parents nuts

Anonymous said...

My daughter plays in the Sjgsl and we are local to were JPS and Marlboro played so my daughter wanted to stop by and see the game. I have to say jps was very strong the first half. The two goals they did score were pretty much right off the bat. If they could get stronger and not look so tired the second half there may be good things to come for them. Only time will tell I guess. Would love to see them play the barons east. Hoping me and my daughter can get over to see it.

Would be interesting to see SJEB team play Lyon, even as a scrimmage.

Anonymous said...

It's not like that was a real 8-0 score with Lyon over SJEB.

At 8-0 with 20 minutes to go Lyon went to 10players, then 9, then 8 players with 10 minutes to go. Then those 8 were told to practice passing in their own half! It was a possible 12,13 or 14-0 game if they tried...

Anonymous said...

Who cares if they could have scored more goals. Games that lopsided don't do anyone good. Would be interesting to see the SJEB East team play Lyon. Bet that game would be more competitive!

I agree that the EDP brackets are miss matched. I assume most teams will be in Hammonton this weekend. Looking forward to seeing a few good games. Looking at the schedule for 8v8 where is Voorhees? Does PDA South have two u11 teams? Who's Milan? Teams are coming out of the woodwork is seems!

Anonymous said...

Per 8:26AM post.... Rumor has it Voorhees did not have enough players available for the tournament. PDA South Milan is their U10 team that plays U11 in SJGSL. This is one of the teams PDA South is focusing on. New trainer this season after the original trainer went two seasons undefeated. New trainer is from across the pond. They will be in EDP next year age appropriate.

Anonymous said...

Top five in NJ right now, Lyon IMO is above the rest at #1. Next five in no order right now, Crush, Voorhees, SDFC, and SJEB. I'm sure there is some other teams that I just don't know that are very good as well.

Anonymous said...

PDA Lyon and Voorhees are the best teams in the state flat out. But since Lyon plays 11v11, neither will play for awhile. But to raise an argument PDA Lyon has not won any national tournaments. But, PDA rules clearly state U10 and under are not allowed to leave the state for tourneys. Regardless, it would be a great game to watch. It's difficult to compare both teams.

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

At this point I don't think the field size would matter.

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

Why did Voorhees (and the rest of other "top" teams) choose to stay 8v8 for U11?

Anonymous said...

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?

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

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

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

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

Anonymous said...

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?

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

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.

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

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.

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.

Anonymous said...

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

Anonymous said...

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

Anonymous said...

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.
