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.

10:43/9:00 what do you know please tell?

PDA Blues will def. be challenged at Jeff Cup. Is that a bad thing? Its about development people! Blues are trying to get better as a team and individual players. Yes, 1043 college coaches will watch them and opponent so you're wrong. Anyway, you get better by playing stronger teams and that is what's going to take place at Jeff Cup. PDA is preparing players for college, its not all about this event, the vision is larger then your peanut brain.

JU/Coppa/ have a good case to be moved to higher flight, however I bet my mortgage payment the coach wont act on it. They will stay in lower flight to chase gotsoccer points!!

Thanks for clearing that up john.

It's not about chasing the GS points, per se, but the higher you are ranked in GS is supposed to help with what tournaments you get accepted to and what flight you are placed in. This is why is makes NO SENSE that PDA Blues are flighted higher than both FC Copa and JU. The almighty PDA name shouldn't be the deciding factor when clearly the team hasn't earned the right to be placed that high.

A previous poster hit the nail on the head. So the girls can play against better competition and supposedly up their individual games, but the college coaches will not be impressed by their lack of skill and their getting crushed by much better competition. If they want to embarrass themselves, let them.

BUT PDA does carry that weight AND how do you know they will "get crushed" and "embarrass" themselves? Do you know the team, who they added, how they trained, how they have grown?

Same players, different team.

Who? Blues? You are wrong if that is your point.

End of the day what is the point in playing in tournaments/leagues, doing well and therefore improving your ranking and then getting misflighted due to the short sightedness of tournament directors placing PDA teams higher just because they are PDA.

Look at Blues/Impact records and name a worthwhile tournament either have won or made the Final in the past year?

Impact have a better chance of an encouraging showing down at Jeff Cup than Blues have. And yes i am familiar with the level of players they have brought on board, and they aren't at the same level as the teams currently ranked top 7 in the State (below).

PDA ECNL
JU
STA
NJ Rush
MF ECNL
Copa
NJ Crush

You are a funny character! You really think those coaches that are misflighted are complaining to the TD!?, NOPE!! So it's not the TD's fault or PDA's influence, nice try. Some coaches request lower flights. I bet your JU, gotsoccer chaser and Coppa gotsoccer chaser, are happy where they are.

NJ has some good teams that are too close to tell until they physically play each other which has not happened in certain situations.Teams have played similar competitions and based on that all you can do is tier the teams in NJ.

PDA ECNL 4- JU 0
STA 0 - JU-0
PDA Impact 2- STA 1
JU 0 - MLU 1
PDA ECNL 1 - NJ Crush 0
JU-0- NJ Crush 3
NJ Rush 3- NJ Crush 2
FC Coppa0- World Class ECNL 3
PDA Impact 1- World Class ECNL 1


Tier 1-PDA ECNL
Tier 2-MatchFit ECNL
Tier 3-NJ Rush, PDA Impact, NJ Crush
Tier 4- STA,Copa, JU
Tier 5 The rest of NJ

you also have to look at how many events they attended to get their GS ranking. Coppa and JU(i think it was) have 13 to Impacts 7. Impact also has a much higher win % than both with half the events playing mostly top 10 state teams.

Anonymous said...

This top 10 in the state stuff doesnt matter anymore. Top 10 in the region, now that matters. To be ranked #7 in the state really isnt that good anymore.

Anonymous said...

Ranked by who? Gotsoccer? Topdrawer? Soccerwire? Which one really matters? Right now it's all about Showcasing. Nobody should be getting points or rankings at all anymore; starting at u15.

Said the team that isn't ranked high. You need to have some order when making tournament brackets, rankings help.

Anonymous said...

Says the team who is only ranked high because they do every mediocre tournament under the sun.

Anonymous said...

Shows what you dont know. Top ranked teams that play in mediocre tournaments get very little to no points. They go in as the highest ranked team and it does nothing for them (regarding points)

Anonymous said...

Not when you get mediocre points over and and over again; it adds up. Then you are a mediocre team sitting at the top and when you start playing top competition, you fall. I've seen one particular team in NJ do this time and time again over the years.

Anonymous said...

Wrong again. The more mediocre flights you play in and win the less points you get for the victories. Your thought process is flawed.

Anonymous said...

Exactly. 1000 points here, 800 points there... It adds up. So this mediocre team gets to 15,000 from doing 8 tournaments plus EDP league who hands out points for showing up. While, for example, PDA OR gets the same points by doing two tourneys and one league. I agree with 8:20pm.

When did Rush take over Jet?

7:01 stop being so cryptic. Which team are you bashing now?

Anonymous said...

7:01, you just dont get it. If you have a lot of points you will NEVER gain points by playing inferior competition. Your example just doesn't work.

NJ Wildcats actually got games in this weekend I heard...Won Saturday EDP 2-0 over North Union United, PA and tied NJ Rush 0-0. How did they play this weekend and kudos for getting out there this weekend...

It had to be indoors, no? What fields are not snow covered, even turf. It's all frozen.

Is the crew playing in the spring challenge this weekend ?

Anonymous said...

LOL, so interested, why not find out for yourself?

Anonymous said...

I heard the crew didn't want to play the wildcats so they backed out of the tournament

Anonymous said...

it's good to see the trolls are alive and well. snow isn't bothering them. LOL

"FC Copa will manage the official Sky Blue FC Reserve Team U23 and U20 teams in a co-branded agreement which will play a season concurrently with the full professional side." For real?????

Anonymous said...

I don't think anyone is playing is a spring challenge this weekend.

Why are the Wildcats afraid of anyone ?

Anonymous said...

Who said the Wildcats were afraid of anyone? Did I miss something?

Anonymous said...

you have it backwards.....troll post suggested that crew pulled out of SC because they didn't want to play wildcats.
