U16G Soccer in PA, NJ, MD, VA & NY

Note: These high school women at age 16 are no joke. Many are looking ahead to college soccer play. They tell their stories here.

So if you know that you must be from PDA. Why do they use OR or Impact players anyway? How do you feel about that?

Anonymous said...

Not sure if they are truely OR players or not. It seems a few have never really been rostered/or played in any games this year.
On team ? Maybe?

YMS DESTROYED Blues even with guest(or GUESS)OR players. At this age, not sure the benefit of sitting and watching. YMS does have a couple players that played and developed with them for 3 years but recently moved to MD. They do return for games/tourneys and still on active roster. Anyway, be interesting if OR players travel to guest. One thing to guest in back yard in NJ, and another to pay to travel and guest.
Be safe out there this weekend.

JU complete kick and run. A lot of talent going to waste

@ 5:45. This is an interesting statement to make, "Not sure if they are truely OR players or not. It seems a few have never really been rostered/or played in any games this year. ". Are you frequently watching Blues games? I doubt it. More importantly, roster is on got soccer for anyone to see. As you will see, it's a large roster. So which ones are from OR that played this week? I call BS on your whole claim. Blues do not use any impact or OR players. All blues players and they managed to perform a lot better then JU against a fast, strong and talented YMS team. YMS had to earn that one goal against the blues as opposed to the 6 against JU.

July 2 9:02pm. New poster here but i know after speaking to Blues parents that PDA as a club is expanding their roster to 26 and including some of the current ECNL players within that number to get them more game time. Many parents are unhappy about it but what can you do when it's your Junior season and it's July when most other teams are set roster wise? Rather their daughter than mine.

PDA has 4 U16 teams. Blues is a disaster due to coaching issues. Coach is never there. They will have 26 on roster next year. Why people would pay to be on that team is beyond me. The team has not developed and probably never will. If the shore team continues to get better Blues will truly be the D team.

My daughter had that coach for ODP. I expected a lot from him but I ended up disappointed. He clearly had favorites. And he disrespected the other girls. Overall it was a bad experience.

That claim is stupid. And not true. Expanding to 26 players!? Really, you sound dumb! If anything select players from North ,shore,south may get rostered with ECNL, like the Keeper from impact; she is already on OR roster. The stuff you people make up is so funny, let players develop.

Anonymous said...

The question is not who is rostered on PDA but who actually has substantial playing time. Doesn't make a difference whether or not you are rostered. Do you actually play or do you pay to sit on the bench. That has everything to do with development.

It was the coaches fault

YMS not attending US Club Nationals? Probably because the other Nationals is the same week. Do they send someone in their place? Blues?

Blues in nationals? Joke. Play a lame tournament, lose and go to nationals?

Wonder if the coach will even be able to make it?

Why can't he develop Blues? They have a huge roster. What's his excuse?

What happened to PDA impact - ranked Some of those players would have been better off on the crew

Anonymous said...

I don't think PDA Impact cares about their rank on Got Soccer. They did well in the Northeast NPL and have several girls committed to D1 schools. They are just fine.

Go to the CREW for what purpose? what advantage? You must be joking.

I've see both coaches, coach and train haven explored different teams after my daughter left MFA.

NO question the players on Impact are in a way better situation.
Glad they are getting looks and not worried about gotsoccer points.

Has any CREW players committed, if so where?

D 1 Coaches attending O'R practices to see bench players play and train since they can't see them in games. Offering FULL sCholarships to some.


NOT

Hey Copa Parent, why would you blame the coach? Because he didn't play your kid? Hat's off to Copa for getting to the finals after qualifying by winning the very weak EDP NPL league, but they were outplayed most of the game by NEFC while they relied on kick and run soccer with a few individual players trying to dribble through the defense. Copa was lucky to get the early goal and hold on for overtime. NEFC missed many of close shots and Copa struggled to hold onto the ball. NEFC scored early in 1st OT, but there is no golden goal. The end.

8:52 Blue Hens? Seriously? I think my kid can do much better academically than UDel. Maybe you should set your sights a bit higher too.

You would be so lucky to get into UDel and play soccer. That would be a great achievement.

You don't know that for sure. College coaches have also been seen at PDA South training facility, so does that mean, they are coming to see players that don't play much in games for them also. NO!!!

Maybe its just the club in general, has a good reputation and college coaches want to see players in a more closer setting. Does your club training sessions have college's attending them?

Anonymous said...

Yes, all of the JU players have quit and gone elsewhere.
The grass appears to greener somewhere else.

where are the JU players going?

That is the million dollar question.

Most of the girls went to PDA. They could use more players apparently.

Anyone know if the goalkeeper for copa is any good

Why do you need to know that?

Anonymous said...

Believe it or not,Rutgers D1 Temple D1 Monmouth D1 and a couple other coaches from D1 schools all came to multiple practices of a small township team called Winslow. So having coaches come to your practices means your an elite club right? lol

Last time i looked most of the PDA teams have rosters of 25.... Good chance to get seen by colleges then

Anonymous said...

7:23 BOTH goal keepers are great and for the record, even if they weren't you have no business calling out a particular player on this forum. It's against the rules. It's such a specific position.

6:45 - One of the JU players went to GFP.

Did PDA start a D team with all the JU players then?!

What happened to JU? Why did they fold?

Anonymous said...

They (Spartans) didn't show up at MSSL Summer College Showcase this past weekend. Screwed up teams that arrived to play them and the college coaches that came to watch players from both teams.

JU forfeited after the first game in the U15 division also.

It took longer than i thought but it finally looks like that organization is falling apart.

Anybody else watch the U16s National Championship between YMS Xplosion and JFC? I'm curious to hear the feedback from the soccer minds on here.

JFC beat YMS 3-0 and the game was not even that close. (YMS got a red card after the 2nd goal, but the game was over by then anyways)

I wouldn't go as far to say that JFC put on a clinic because YMS has a couple good players, but JFC dominated every facet of the game from start to finish. Their passing, movement, and creativity was of a high level and not surprising that they consistently beat a disorganized back 4 for YMS. One bright spot for YMS was a MF player that appeared to be head & shoulders above her teammates technically, athletically and with fitness. You could argue that she may have been the best player for either team as well for most of the game.

One surprising thing was that in a National Final, the YMS coaches did not change their tactics once it became obvious to anyone watching that they were consistently getting broken down by JFC. Maybe I missed it on the video feed. JFC was relentless and it was only a matter of time before they netted a couple of their opportunities. Counting the number of quality chances both teams created, JFC could have easily won 5-1 on the day.

Congrats to JFC on winning back to back championships, not an easy task.

YMS Xplosion are now officially the Buffalo Bills of girls soccer.

Anonymous said...

Even if JU as an organization does not fold completely, the club should be banned (All ages) for at least 3 years from participating in any tournament or showcase for what they did in the U15 and U16 girls groups. Not sure if they did the same in others.

It was unfair not to inform the tournaments much earlier that they would not be fielding teams, especially when college coaches were potentially coming to the games. Not only did they did their own players get screwed, they screwed players on the other teams and wasted potential college coaches time.

I find it hard to believe that they could speak to their players a week or two in advance to get an idea that they were in trouble with players to give the tournament a chance to replace them.

I agree 11:37. Not sure how far ahead they told the other U16 teams, but in the U15 age group, JU still hadn't officially forfeited the whole tournament. The first team they were to play Sunday morning actually checked out of their hotel early to get to the field to play and were warmed up and waiting on the bench when they found out JU wasn't coming.

They did the same thing to the second team they were supposed to play on Saturday. All the JU girls were in their cars on the way home after losing their first game while the team they were to play second waited around after their first game until the game was officially called before the start.

Inconsiderate to all the players, families and team/college coaches to say the least.

I don't know how anyone could try and bash YMS? They have made it to the national finals for the last three years without a big roster(14-15)field players. This is amazing in today's day and age when they compete with all the large clubs around the country. Whomever posted this nonsense really does not understand the game and that they actually develop players which is a lost trait in youth soccer today or someone who is just jealous.

Anonymous said...

My daughter has played with and against YMS players since she was 11. Much credit goes to the team. However, I was shocked when I saw them play Blues last month. Not the same team. Perhaps they were missing some players. I know a few have left for ECNL teams, but not many. The MF you are referring to is National ODP and is committed to Harvard. The only other player that stood out was a very fast winger. Although they may not be as strong as they once were, still a great team.

If you really watched YMS play Blues you might have noticed the girls laughing and having fun on the field. That game was used as practice for Nationals. YMS declined going to Indiana for Nationals. Have you ever watched YMS beat O'Reilly? 3 times. If YMS played at 50% they would have killed Blues.

Anonymous said...

I did not see any laughing but it certainly looked like they were playing at 50%. So thank you for clearing that up. I knew something was not right.

Anonymous said...

@ 5:08, YMS used the mid-Atlantic regionals as a practice for regionals ... OK.... But then proceeds to play at 50%? Really, that makes sense to you? How is that preparing? Come on you can't be that dumb, after all you managed to turn your PC on. Besides, they destroyed JU in that event, I assume playing at 50% as well?

Anonymous said...

Moral of the story, next time take your practice games seriously and play at 100% to be ready for Nationals!

Anonymous said...

Long time reader, first time poster.

@1:50pm - Bashing YMS? Seems like you are referring to the cliff notes version someone posted about the Finals at Nationals between JFC and YMS. Haven't watched the match and doesn't seem like anyone is bashing YMS on here, but rather sharing insights to a game.

Yes I agree with you, what they have been able to accomplish with a smaller roster is not common. With the DOC as their Head Coach I'm sure it doesn't hurt either that the team probably receives preferential treatment with training times, allocated practice space and access to resources. They only have 1 Premier team, so why wouldn't they put all their support behind this team? Anything less than making it back to the Finals probably would be considered a failure.

Making it to the National Finals, 3 years in a row is not on accident and I applaud YMS on accomplishing that. Although they didn't win State Cup, Regionals or Nationals, they are still back in the National League which everyone should consider a success.

Imagine if they could win something!!!!

Well, JFC is in the ECNL now, so won't have to worry about them.
