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...

PDA Lyon 3-0 over Middletown U11 A - full field 11 v 11.

Voorhees beat everyone this season. They finished 9-0. Not surprised if they beat PDA also.

Voorhees is actually 7-0 but your point is still good - they beat everyone. There's no shame in losing to them 5-0.

Folks the kids are kids - not the Rangers or the Heat. Put your speculative comments there and let your kids enjoy learning the game so they love it.

My daughter is a 10 player who tried out for a club team. Tryouts were a month ago and they keep doing callbacks. Just curious when most clubs/teams make offers or have they already made offers and this club is just slow?

Anonymous said...

Sounds like they made offers and they were declined so they do additional call backs. Each club has their own time table too.

Brick Angels beat Medford yesterday 3-2.

That's Brick's first Jags win this season. Just goes to show you that at this age any one of these teams can beat the other on any given day. Just look at this seasons Jags results and you will see this with all the teams

Has vorhees ever played PDA?

Anonymous said...

Have heard great things about the pda u10 south girl goalkeeper. Never seen her play but I have heard shes very good . Goalkeeping is a tough position. Good for her .

Anonymous said...

Kudos to PDA for not giving up when they got down 2-0, especially after their last 3 games so that was nice to see their kids fight on. They also got huge games from their center back, center mid and striker. We (Medford) really brought the pressure and they withstood it. Well done PDA, good luck next weekend and next fall.

sjeb doesn't have a permanent goalie.

NJ Crush U11 parent here. We just played Lyons at U10 and they were good. But their goalie who is like 5-7 cleaned up any strikes we had. And made two saves that could have easily made it a 3-2 game instead of the 3-0 final.

Why don't you post the scores when u lose, like in your own tournament against your own age. Keep playing u11 b teams. Learn from a your u11 real team who never post a thing and wins their own tournament.

Damn 7:52. I guess the truth hurts. That was aa a u 11 team. I'm sorry they lost 2 games in 2 years. My bad. Good luck next year.

And you must have a lot of free time following a team that your kid will never play on. I have an idea get a job and get out of that trailer park. It seemed everyone cares what our club does. Trust me I don't spend one second thinking about your team. Get a life.

Last Saturday, ODP 2003 lost terribly 5-0 to the NJ Wildcats U11 team which is a good, not great team. Seems that ODP is overrated.

Anonymous said...

ODP played girls older than u11. Confirmed by what they were told and what parents, who are familiar with the older Wildcats players, said. There were at least 20 Wildcats players that they mixed in and out during the "game". Maybe some were u11, but certainly not all.

Anonymous said...

Even if ther were some older girls - should be able to compete if it's truly an OPD team. Should be the best girls in the state at u11. ODP is nothing more than another money grab and should not need anymore with all the new so called premiere teams and clubs.

Anonymous said...

There is no "odp" team at this age. Only these development squads they started recently as a money grab. The real odp doesn't start until U13 when they go to Rhode Island for the summer camp.

Relax. Your last name was not used. The majority on here do not know who you are. No libel. You are a public figure by being a soccer coach. You need a thicker skin as you will be spoken about online in the future. I will have to say that it appears you are allowing yourself to get involved in drama. I'm not sure I would want myself or my kid in that environment. Nor would I want my kid to be subjected to your anger and emotionality. Glad we're in the north.

Any more scores from the Voorhees tourny. Thanks

Anonymous said...

PDA SOUTH played very well. I was at the tournament.They passed the ball real well , switched fields and were able to complete passes to score. Not bad for JUST A AVERAGE team . This kick and run I kept reading about was not how they played this weekend. There was no fast super player no one breaking away. very well passing and moving the ball up field to score. Must be a newer team from what I read about on this blog . Seems to me they were better than average.

Anonymous said...

When facing weak teams an AVERAGE team will look decent. Your tournament was weak, no top teams. Play PDA South or PDA Lyon and then discuss how well you move the ball up the field. Fall season is a tell all. Will be a lot of fun for all the teams not just PDA

Here we go with the PDA Shore/Tom's River talk. One of the biggest dump and chase teams there is. When YOU played the top team this weekend, it was easily shut down. Don't go lumping yourself in with Lyon, you're not even in the same discussion.

Anonymous said...

Ok I get what u are saying about playing weaker teams I mean that obvious to everyone on this blog. .The Humville hotshots from PA are not a weak team. Pda south tied . Ok they didnt win but they didnt lose. But the Voorhees tournament no one can say was strong. It was the same teams playing each other. All were in SJGL except for 3. Wildcats, toms river , barrington. Big deal. Your right wait till fall and lets see. 11 v 11 is very different. Hope every team adjusts to the bigger fields.

Voorhees was a much tougher tourney. All god teams. Mssl tourney was not very competitive

Anonymous said...

That's silly to say the Voorhees tournament wasn't good because it's the same teams that play each other in the regular season. That doesn't make any sense especially when you're trying to make a case that the Ft Dix was good. Listen it's not your fault that more quality teams didn't sign up for the MSSL event but don't try and save face by talking bad about the Voorhees tournament.

I don't even care that you lost to the Barons B team. Was it a bad loss? Sure, but all teams have bad losses from time to time. If you played them 10 more times, I'm sure PDA would win 10 times. Who cares? You have some new kids and they need to get used to each other. I'm sure your team will be fine.

Anonymous said...

Never talked bad about voorhees tournament . Just said not strong. The same teams play each other in sjgl played in this tournament. Nothing wrong with that . So how can it be strong . Not save face for saying it either. Its the truth. Happy they had a great tournament . Hope it was excellant with great games and I hope all the teams had a great time . Please do not twist my words . Nev er said it was bad , just not strong. My opinion. No one elses but mine. So relax .

Anonymous said...

I hear you - guess I misunderstood you. I tend to think a tournament with 4 or the 5 better teams in the state would be considered strong. Especially when 4 of the 5 best South Jersey teams were there (SJEB was the only one missing). You're right though just an opinion.

Some teams are going to full sided next year but definitely not ready for it. Can't expect good results full sided when you haven't proven to be a top small sided team. We'll see how it goes, good luck whichever way your daughters team plays.

I just want to know how that the top 4 or 5 teams that play all the time against each other during league play now play against each other in a tournament can be a strong tournament. Maybe strong is the wrong word. Challenging is a better word . I know I would like to play other teams then the same teams over and over again. Weather we win or lose. Weather they are better or not . But I hope they would be better to make our team or any team try hard and work harder as a team.
Voorhees won the tournament if scores at u10 counted . Right??
And do not get me wrong . They are a great team . Congrats to all the teams . And to voorhees . But would like to play different teams in a tournament. Thats all I was trying to say .

Toms river and Nj Wildcats were also in this group of the best South jersey has to offer. These two are likely the two strongest teams at the Jersey Shore..

Regarding PDA South, their best (or one of their best) players, the speedy forward, played with Medford at the Voorhees Tournament this past weekend. I believe from what I heard parents say on the sidelines was that she has either moved over already or will be joining them full-time in the Fall.

Why are you telling us this? It is not important. Didnt Medford lose 2 games at that tournament.

Anonymous said...

Probably because it's a soccer blog. Yes, they lost two games I believe.

And PDA south would of lost 4 games if they entered a quality tournament considering they lost to SJEB (b) squad. PDA = Weak team minus mid fielder.

JAGS has the best this age group has to offer? Not even close to reality. PDA Lyon who is the best North team, plays a year up. The only other "top" teams that play in JAGS are Middletown, NJ Crush Fire, Medford and Toms River. No Voorhees, South Jersey Barons East (the good Barons team), Marlton, Cherry Hill, PDA South.

You're right that my original comment was overstated. Blue is a nice team, but come on with the "best this age group has to offer" nonsense.

I would consider good a division one like the SJGSL Premier division.

Voorhees,
Barons (East)
Medford
Marlton
Cherry Hill
PDA South

Show me a better division in any league, anywhere in NJ. Those teams play a tough game EVERY week.

I agree the barons west team is in top bracket in jags that isn't saying to much plus Lyon blue probably didn't even play the top teams just schedule craps games all season....just like the war at the shore tourny coming up I don't understand why PDA does a crappy tourny then they brag about winning it funny stuff

Anonymous said...

10:13 while I agree Voorhees, Sjeb, cherry hill, marlton (average)are all top teams, the rest of the best at this age play Jags. I would say 15 out of the top 20 play jags. I don't include Lyon because they don't play u10
And Pda south does play jags

SJEB is as good as anyone out there. I'd say based on results, the top teams are (in no particular order), Voorhees, PDA Lyon, SJEB, NJ Crush, Middletown, Medford, Toms River.

The next group which is very close would be PDA Lyon Blue, Brick, NJ Wildcats, SDFC, Marlton, Marlboro, STA Red and PDA South Barcelona.

Can any of these teams beat the others? Sure but if you play them out over a full season, this is probably how it would shake out.

It will also be hard to judge from this point on as the for-profits like PDA and SJEB will go 11v11 and most non-profits and town teams will stay 8v8. You'll have to judge two separate groups at U11. Either way, keep an eye on your daughter's growth and happiness, those are the important things.

Cheers!

11:43 has it very close. Top ten in no order.
Voorhees, Sjeb,pda Lyon, Middletown, nj crush,Medford,toms river,Lyon blue, nj wildcats, Sdfc.
The next ten again no order Marlboro,Brick, Hamilton white,PDA South,Stronghold,marlton, Sta Red, JPS,cherry hill,Nutley

All of these teams are capable of beating each other on any given day. But moving forward these are the top 20.

11:43 is also correct in that we will have to see which teams are playing 8v8 and which are playing 11v11.there might also be lots of movement with all the kids on these teams come fall.

PDA is a not for profit.

Anonymous said...

8:57

You're right, technically PDA, SJEB, Match Fit, etc are all 501c 3's which make them non-profits. But let's face it, that's just to achieve tax exempt status. They are for-profits in every other sense and you know it. There's nothing wrong with that either, but the original point was: how about I just say the "bigger" clubs will go full-sided to get more income to support their "missions". Again, nothing wrong with that...unless it's only for the almighty dollar and not for the true development of the kids.

Everyone has pretty much agreed that small-sided play fosters better development at this age. Why is NJ so far behind the curve of playing U11 small-sided? These kids aren't ready for the big field yet and this is why NJ routinely gets hammered at the older ages at the national events. You'll see next year who was ready for full-sided and who wasn't and at U12 I highly doubt the teams that play full-sided at U11 will dominate the ones that didn't.

Anonymous said...

I agree my kid is going full sided this year...but it's still soccer... not gonna make that big of difference for teams that r staying 8v8...if the girls can play they will be fine on any field

Anonymous said...

95% of the teams at U11 in NJ will be 8v8 next year. Those that aren't, I'd like to hear the rational behind the decision. Hard to learn and perfect the finer points of the game at this age full sided. Kids will develop bad habits, and lose ground to the kids playing 8v8.

Anonymous said...

How do they loose ground...people always say it's about the training games r just a bonus for the kids...so in reality as long as they r playing soccer who cares

Anonymous said...

People don't always say that, maybe people in NJ say that, but not the rest of the country and rest of the world for that matter. The training prepares them for games. There's a reason NJ is one of the few states that play full-sided at U11. The FA recently voted for youth soccer players not to play full sided matches until U13. I'd say the FA knows a little more about soccer than NJ.

"The smaller versions of the game will enable more touches, dribbles, one-on-ones, more involvement and more enjoyment. Where children are enjoying the game more, they are getting better, so that runs hand in hand with development."

PDA Crew parent here (U11 north team). Crew played up at U12 at War at the Shore - Father's Day tourney in Freehold and did not play that well. I did see a lot of U-10 PDA games this weekend. My main interest is because my daughter is a 5th grader who could play down at U10 with mostly 4th graders because of her birthday...

War At The Shore in Freehold Platinum U11 bracket was pretty good. All U10 PDA teams played up at U11 for 11 v 11 match-ups.

PDA South drew 0-0 vs Lyon Blue. No meaningful offense from either team. Even match-up but Blue appeared to posses more and had a couple more shots toward the goal. But neither team test the goalies much.

Lyon destroyed Lyon Blue 6-0. After 6th goal at like 45 minute mark, coach pulled two girls and they played keep away with two girls down for a full 15 minutes.. Very similar to U11 PDA Galaxy in terms of soccer skill, speed & passing with exception that all four or five girls up front could finish. In midfield & defense Lyon played like boys to be honest. Blue had no legit opportunities. Galaxy tends to win 2-0, 3-0 vs decent teams..,Lyon could have scored 8 or 9 to be fair.

Yeah but Lyon didn't do that well against other teams just other PDA team..I mean if the A team lost to the B then there a problem...they should beat Lyon blue there B team let be realistic...I sure ur a Lyon parent no need to brag about beating weak team like u guys always do..how come PDA Lyon never plays any top u-11 teams only sub par teams then brags how good they are...great job at war of the shore with terrible teams...why doesn't PDA play in any good tourny with the top teams then u can brag until then keep playing weak teams and enjoying the meaningless win...

Just curious , why would PDA LYON THE A TEAM AND PDA LYON BLUE B TEAM from North ENTER THE SAME TOURNAMENT IN THE SAME BRACKET. DONT THEY PRACTICE AGAINST EACH OTHER EVERY WEEK. SEEMS TO ME AND AGAIN ONLY ME AND MY THOUGHT , THAT IT WAS TO MAKE SURE PDA LYON GOT AN EASY 3 POINTS TO uP THEIR TALLY ON THE SCORE BOARD AND to make the Gf and GA in their favor if it came down to it. Shame That they do this . Play against other teams you paid to play against yourselves when u do that every week for free . Lol doesnt make sense. Fee bad for b team . Used imho . But that is my feeling.

are you sure you are a CREW parent? You sound like the same guy who is always on here thinking your PDA u10 team is the best and can beat all the u11 teams. I don't believe galaxy got beat like you did in your own tournament. You lost by many goals and they won everything. if you were a Crew parent, you wouldn't call yourself out like that, everyone would know who you are.

People dislike PDA and then you come along and make things worse for them. Go back to u10 and talk your BS.

Sounds like PDA should be looking at the Lyon front line and maybe the boys in the middle to replace a bunch of the u11 girls. Do your girls get invited up and dominate the older girls when they play? Does your doc know how great this team is compared to the older girls? Must be one of those very rare and special teams. Thanks Lyon DAD for the info.

Funny, just checked and Crew did fine in a u12 bracket. Played some decent u12 teams including stronghold and held their own, and kept all games close and won one. Why is that so bad Crew dad? The Lyons only beat the b team badly, all else was close. Why are you so impressed with this team? Or obsessed?

PDA Lyon only had one blowout against their second team. What are you talking about they could have scored 8 or 9? Against who? The teams you barely beat? Why are you comparing yourself to your second and third teams as well a your older team? You have done this in the past and then got blown out in the PDA tournament.
Agree with the above poster, your older team came away with all wins and you got blown out. I saw the games and your 4 or 5 girls upfront were not all - putting anything away.

Jeez, even the PDA "family" can't get along. What a bunch of lunatics!

What a bunch of crazy haters. I watched Lyon closely and I think Lyon is a very good team but not because of individuals - which they have plenty of - but because of depth.

Depth is what substitutes Lyon from Vorhees or any other squad at U10 in NJ. Lyon could field two 8 v 8 teams and either of them would beat Middletown again 4-0 and play with Vorhees or whoever else anyone thinks is good. It's why they can play 11 v11 U11teams and still have quality performances. Stop hating!

It's not hating just the truth...u can play u-11 but u haven't beat any of the good u-11 teams...only sub par teams so far don't brag if ur not gonna play the better u-11 teams...Sjeb u-10 beat the u-11 nj stallions team I didn't see them post there win..n stallions r a good team..let me know when Lyon beats Sjeb u-11 or pipeline or Pda Nova or PDA galaxy or Hamilton rush team until them don't post ur u-11 wins against bad comp...they brag how good they r but don't play in any good tournaments where the get good games cause they don't wanna loose and have all the parents ask y pay all this money so they play second rate u-11 teams to make them feel better...

Is PDA Lyon gonna play u-11 this year or u-12

To PDA South Dad. Your head coach knows you are on here talking terrible stuff. Its time to look for another club. You have the whole sumer to figure it out and do it on your own or just be told to after you've paid in full. It's coming - parents on Barcelona are saddened by your actions and embarrassed for your daughter. Please leave.

I see zero mention about PDA south here?

I believe the Lyon dad calling himself a crew dad has the issues. I would think the DOC of PDA would want you to leave. Pretty sure they know who you are, based on your belief that your child can play at u13 if up to you.

I think what he wants to say is that PDA should make the Lyons the A team for u11. Take galaxy to be B team, they don't have the depth that Lyons have to score and the Lyons can beat other u11 teams easily and galaxy can not. Have you ever played galaxy? Why dont you move your daughter up and show them how good she really is.

@10:42 kind words and good luck to your team.

I love all the Lyon talk. It just shows how jealous everyone is. Again I'm not sure why people care so much. I guess they didn't make the team this year at tryouts. Don't take it so hard. Worry about building a winner at your club. Do your talking on the field. See you in the fall and food luck.

And blame the tournament director for the tournament schedule. Oh I guess the PDA coach set that up. Every age bracket. My bad. I'm dealing with a bunch of idiots on here. I hope you're all pulling my leg.

BTW -The PDA Barcelona Dad who knows all about S.Jersey soccer and wants Lyon to play better U11 teams(think about that statement btw) then claims to actually be a NJ Crush dad…

If you were an NJ Crush dad you would know that this very spring season Lyon beat both U11 NJ Crush Flames and U11 Flames White U11 teams - top 20 & top 40 U11 teams. You are a tool a gargantuan per proportions my friend!

NJ Crush dad - that was a funny one.

uh oh, looks like somebody has been busted! That's true, if you were a Crush parent you would know that Lyon has played you twice and beat you a combined 9-1. So I guess you're saying your Crush team isn't good?

This Lyon dad is out of his mind. I'm a galaxy parent and you are an embarrassment to your team, your child and our club. Do everyone a flavor and move on.

You got it. Hopefully this weekend it will get back to actual soccer talk with the Rider Cup being played. Best thing is to not even respond to the negative stuff. If nobody responds, there is nothing to fuel the fire and they'll eventually go away.
