U13G / U13 Girls Youth Soccer

U13G  / U13 Girls youth soccer seems to offer the most teams and the widest diversity of talent.

Where these players will end up is anyone guess.

Welcome to the ride.

After watching today's game - TSF vs MF Black

TSF what an embarrassment, TSF was totally out played by Match Fit's C team.

I believe it was 18 corner kick to zero (or maybe 1).

Out shot by at least 25-3, Match Fit hit the post 5 or 6 times.

Goal by TSF came on an offside's that was not called, a dribbler shot on near post.

Match Fit relentless hustle, pressure finally got the tie with 1 minute left. What a game by these young girls. (even saw a mom argument on sidelines, TSF girls are very disrespectful)

MY Top 10


1- PDA Storm
2- MF ECNL
3- MF NPL
4- PDA Dragons
5- STA
6- PDA Ajax
7- Match Fit Black
8- PDA Shore Fusion
9- Wildcats
10- TSF

I gave a top 10 list earlier but agree with 833. Yes Wildcats, you are #9 & falling fast. Enjoy the top 10 while you can. By mid-end of October you will be on the outside looking in. But please when that happens come up with better excuses. The guest player one is getting old.

Anonymous said...

I don't ever post rankings but Im glad to see MF Black finally in top 10. Beat Galaxy in the fall and with todays game against TSF at least deserve to be top 10. Getting recognized for how well they've come together. Go ahead with all your tie comments. If you were at the game you would clearly put them ahead of TSF. Whoever posted 8:33 is spot on. Cat fight was interesting. Regardless of where Black finishes for the spring in standings they proved to a lot of former players/parents that leaving may not have been the best option. Great job to the coach and players!

@ 6:59. You, must be that stupid. I never said the Dragons were not in contention nor did I ever say they didn't hold their own destiny. I just stated that they were in third place because of the points. As of right now, those are the facts. Maybe by the end of the season after everyone has played their games, they will be ahead of CFC and MF. As of right now, they are behind. NE NPL league standings states this.

The top 4 are set, it looks like MF will be the 4 seed and play the #1 seed.
These playoff games will set the tone for the ECNL u14 this Fall. These are going to be some great games for these teams.

Dummy! Look at points per game when teams have not played equal amount of games. Dragons 2.68 is higher than two team ahead.

Dummy? You have just proven who the dummy is. Doesn't matter how many points per game you have. The standings are what they are, as of right now, Dragons are in 3rd place. If somehow, the season ended today, they would be in 3rd place. No matter how you slice it MORON.

Boca beat PDA shore. I put boca in top 10 PDA shore 11. Boca also beat njcsa elite in state cup. PDA shore great job with wildcats. Let's see how next weekend goes for all. That is a great team always has been since trfc days. That ball just falls funny at times chaps. Strange calls by refs. Great well trained keepers. Forwards who can shoot upper ninety outside box and goalie never sees ball off foot. It is end of season and all are hungry. PDA shore just proved it

Wow! Wildcats now competing and losing to teams who were in the B bracket of the state cup. Wonder how that coach is gonna spin this???? Yikes!

6:59- They are getting "exposure". They will play for 17 National championships this summer all over the country.

All of their players will get D1 scholarships. Our kids won't get looked at by D1 coaches at the beach club, swimming in the pool with friends or on vacation with family.

I hope they win, this way most NJ teams can say we beat the "National Champion"

That must be the coach talkin..... What D1 college coaches are going to the "B" bracket nationals at U13???? You are truly delusional my friend. Let the girls enjoy it but please do not link college recruiting to an event like that..... Shows us how little you truly know. Good luck!

NJCSA Galaxy will never be happy. They have a few dads that can't seem to stay on one teaM for more than a year and a few idiot parents that follow the leader. It's pathetic. They were never a true NJCSA team and will not be a true Wildcat team either. Just pay to wear the uniform and run their own team, daddy ball. Daddy tells the coach exactly what to do. They have some good players but they will never get too far because there is no consistency.

Anonymous said...

MF parent should be ashamed. Standing on the edge of the field and yelling at players when there is clearly a designated seating area. why do you need to be on the field? Losing her mind yelling and screaming because a girl got a drink of water during a stoppage. Talking loudly about a player by number calling her dirty a player so she can hear. If you want respect, behave like a spectator. You're not part of the game. You can lie and deny if you want, but I have this on video. I'll gladly publish it.

Well see about that. Can't wait to see how the almight PDA does at Delco.
They haven't done well at big tournaments, so lets see what the weekend brings.
We will find out soon enough if PDA and MF are the place to be or if its just the Koolaid drinkers trying to justify their 10 grand a year cost for 13 year old soccer.

Anonymous said...

12:07 I will take the other side on this conversation.
Let's exclude ECNL teams becasue they should be on another board.
Since TSF, STA & NJ Wildcats are also NPL teams they competefor the same title.

However, STA girls can participate in a PDP, TSF and Wilcat girls can participate in TIP. Currently there is no PDP for NorthEast Girls NPL because if the girls were good enough for PDP they would be on ECNL teams already, correct? Additionally, as NJ Wildcats have proved they can participate in NCS and Region1 also.

How are the MF and PDA B teams a better place?

League? Excluding Tournaments

NorthEast Girls NPL 5 or 6 strong teams (10-12 strong games for the season)
MF North (Black)
MF South (NJX)
PDA North (Dragons)
PDA South (Ajax)
CFC (Arsenal)
FC Stars (If North becomes NPL).


Combination (EDP NPL, EDP Central & Region1) 16+ Strong games for the season.

Don't say training - because some of these teams have excellent coaching.
Besides the Club brand how is playing NPL for MF and PDA better?

When did PDA shore become top 10?

What's in that koolaide?

c'mon... on this board one quality win shoots you into the top 10,and one loss (regardless of quality)automatically means that you have always been over rated.

Define strong games in EDP NPL, Central and region 1??? I am struggling to see more than 4-5. After the ECNL teams are finalized there will be plenty of players that will be added into the NE NPL pool. ALL of these teams instantly get better. Your leagues will also start to lose some of your best players to ECNL teams and more in the years to come. IF, your kid truly wants the better competition, it seems pretty clear to me where they should be.....

NorthEast Girls NPL 2014/2015

PDA North controls everyone's destiny a win and a tie vs World Class NPL and Continental FC NPL guarantees them the number 1 seed and a play date with Penn Fusion NPL, leaving MatchFit NPL and PDA South to battle in the other Semi. Should PDA North cave in under pressure, Match Fit will become the #1 seed and play PennFusion NPL leaving the two PDA teams to fight it out in a semi final game.

Don't forget disadvantage of being on B Teams at PDA or MF is they won't ever be allowed to play Region 1 league in addition to NE-NPL as they always want to keep their teams playing only vs ECNL Clubs. The out of NJ ECNL Clubs will never have the depth to field teams in NE-NPL that are strong enough to make that a top level competitive league.It will always be the NJ B Teams then everyone else a step or 2 down ibn level in NE-NPL.

Anonymous said...

Calvert, Penn Legacy, South Shore, Binghampton show me 4 games in NE-NPL that are as tough.
NO, I thought so.
You have only the 2 games vs the other NJ teams that are highly competitive in that league.And nest year forget about MF-NPL being competitive.
This spring is the last hurrah for them as a competitive team.
That leaves Ajax and Dragons at comp level. Just not enough.

1:35 Wildcats aren't calling anything Strong - I'm calling them strong.

Like previous poster said. Where are the MF and PDA NPL parents? Are you telling me the below gave you strong games? or did they contribute to 50+ goals for the top 4 had? So you guys had 16 strong games? or would you rather have played the EDP teams if you could? I'm sure they would have given you a better fight.

1:44- Calvert is not the team they were 2 years ago. Look at their results. They are a bad team.

Games vs the other 3 were not very competitive

Binghampton 3-0 over Willdcats
South Shore 4-1 over Wildcats
Penn Legacy 4-2 over Wildcats.

Those look like NE NPL scores. The difference being the NJ team is getting pounded.

PDA Ajax 3-1 over Wildcats
PDA Dragons 1-0 over Wildcats

Wildcats were 0-5 4GF, 15 GA -11 GD.

AJAX

STA 1-0 over Ajax

South Shore 2-0 over Ajax

No I think you have proven without a doubt that you are the dope. You hang on to scores, and games as if its going to matter in college. Who cares if a team is slipping or has stonger competition, at the end of the day its getting your daughter where she needs to be.

The funny part is that you fools really think that a certain academy carries a better NPL chance or the ECNL label will get your daughter ahead. Some of the best players in the state have stayed with non ecnl and NPL teams and are alreay ahead of your players. That my friend is A FACT!!!!
So take your ridiculous stats and break out the check book. Also, Don't forget to load up on the team clothing so you can wear your daughters team name to all the BBQs this summer.
also, don't forget to tell all your friends about how great suzy's team is because they played the same teams over and over again (like MOSA) and are saying what a strong NPL league it is.

YOU are the one that sounds ridiculous and YOU are the one that is most definitely the dope

Yes 2:56.
They knock the strength of comp in EDP, then when a team chooses to add the Region 1 League to make their set of games more competitive you knock them for losing some of those games?
Which is it you want them to do?
Playing the best teams you can schedule is the best way to develop your players win or lose.
In the long run you can only improve by testing yourself vs the best teams and leagues you can schedule.

Scouting most definitely starts at U14 and the fact is that ECNL showcases are the best places for a player to be seen outside of a training center or ID camp. Ask any college or national team coach/scout.

3:04 Your team improves in PRACTICE. Playing better teams doesn't make you better. When you play a better team, you can see where you are lacking. A coach then adjusts practices and drills to address the deficiencies. Young teams need to be coached not screamed at.

You don't hope things get better, your coach/trainer corrects them.

Did anyone attend the PDA Storm/Dragon tryouts...what a joke! The tryout consisted of the coach throwing up a ball and telling all the players to just play. I guess they were looking for a super standout among their 48 players and chose not to have players come back for the second tryout...their rosters are too big as it is 24+ players.

I know we have been talking a lot about leagues and individual players lately.

I can't wait to see the EDP format for next year. If they read this board - please do away with that North/Central/South format. You are a regional league people know what they are getting into when they apply. Put your best 12 in D1 to give them 11 solid game per season followed by your north/central/south format for D2 and soon. You have some strong teams. My EDP D1 teams that I know of:

Meow meow just lost to PDA 4th team. Please zip it for awhile.... Please just don't say it was a game and stuff happens. That would be like a premier league team losing to an MLS team. Brutal and shows the decline of your play period.

Why are people so obsessed with the academies? Usually because they are not good enough to play for one. Proof is black and white year after year with their results. I will take that all day long versus another coach saying all is OK after a loss to the 4th team in another club..... Wake up!

My daughters U13 team is going to play a local college this weekend.

They are going to be so awesome after that game. We don't train or practice anymore. We play teams much better than us.

We start off slow usually 0-8 in the first 3 minutes. Then our girls wakeup and and cause the other teams to pass it around the field for the next 67 minutes.

Thats how you get better.

ECNL people scram with your best B team comments -no one can compete with the league congrats and now be gone.

8:43 Best B teams in the country? I hope that's not coming from a PDA/MF NPL parent. More travel expenses? Isn't this a travel soccer board?

8:39 Busy? yes,but isn't that the sign of a good team? While other teams have the summer off good teams are playing for titles, no?

8:28 don't get ahead of yourself - you need to win West Virginia first before you go to Oklahoma and you need to win your NPL before Indiana. NJ Wildcats had a shot to win a spot in the National League they will face similar teams in West Virginia.

Wildcats didn't have to adjust any league games for fall and spring cup games?

Wildcats ducked the PDA tournament. Probably would have been in 4th bracket based on U13 results.

1st bracket was for Elite/ECNL teams. Wildcats lost 4-0 to VA who didn't make finals.

2nd bracket- NE NPL teams- losses to South Shore, Ajax and Dragons.

3rd bracket- Binghamton beat Wildcats 4-1. PDA Shore beat Wildcats 3-1.

Wow, as a Wildcat parent after reading these recent hateful posts from the the PDA and MF NPL Teams parents/coaches I have to say I am so happy my family is where we are and not with them.
If their situation and club is such a paradise than why are they spending all their time on here attacking us?
We have a very happy and fun group of parents and girls who all get along great. We win some and lose some but we are very happy with our situation and so are the girls. Everyone roots for each other and there are no clicks or girls left out of anything.
We have fun when we travel and all hang out and eat together, parents and girls.
We train and play locally in a great facility with brand new field turf, 1 block from the beach and the Bay borders our home game and practice fields in a beautiful setting.
ALL of our players dress and play in every half of every game, no matter how "important" or "meaningful", regardless of score, win or lose.
I can't imagine how my daughter and I would feel if she was on a team where she was told she would not dress or play at all this weekend because it was a "meaningful" or "important"game.
Even though my daughter is a starter, I am still happy about that policy as I have been on teams where girls never got in certain "important " games and I felt terribly and it obviously devastated the young player who often left the field crying with her family upset as well.
I just don't believe there is a need for that at this young age.
On our team it is made clear that if you are good enough to be chosen for the team at tryouts and you make the necessary commitments you are good enough to play in every game.
Prior to our recent tryouts our coach sent out an email saying he was committed to each of our 14 rostered players and all we had to do was respond that we were returning for U14 for next fall and we were guaranteed a spot.
The coach would only consider new players at tryouts for the open spots up to 18 max.
None of our players or families are anxious about their spot or whether their child will get in every game.
Maybe this is not what you are looking for and that is fine.
To each their own.
But I think it says something about our team that everyone has chosen to return for U14.
For those who attack our team and are so nasty, I hope you eventually find some peace and happiness in your soccer experience.
You seem so angry!
It's supposed to be a fun experience for your daughter and her family after all.

Why would someone from MF or PDA care about the Wildcats? Some of you assume you know who is commenting on your team but you have no clue who it really is.

Anonymous said...

1:18 Its nice to see you are happy with your current situation. Alot of good points for the kids on the team, especially your daughter. On the flip side, I'm not one to ever come on here attacking other teams or coaches for the routes they choose or how they run their organizations, style of play or how they coach each week. But, my daughter is on a team where there is an overloaded roster and she will have to compete each week for a spot. We have that understanding going in and what she is going to have to do to compete. This is the life of a competitive soccer player that wants to get to the highest level she can be. Life as we know isn't easy and this environment is only for the kids that are willing to embrace the grind of elite soccer. This is the level that is carried up through the WNT level, where, as we have seen lately, some of the MF players have been selected for. If this is not for your daughter, then so be it. The girls/parents that are on these rosters know the cost, know the expenses, and know theres a possibility that may not make the roster some weeks. Its laid out to each of the parents before the invites go out. If a player cannot keep up throughout the season, they move on and are replaced. This will happen for the next several years for many different reasons. In the end (after high school) the girls who are still standing are there because they've worked their tails off and clearly deserve to be there. You can knock all you want about how much us parents pay, but as long as shes playing soccer and continues to have great passion for this game, this is the route we will continue on.

Bottom line, if your child is happy that's all you want as a parent.

All of your little Mia Hamm's will either give up soccer by the time they are in high school, or continue playing in college, so let them have fun and compete. There is NO reason to put down these 13 yr. old girls because they play at a lower level than your daughter. And remember any team could beat anyone on any given day.

Little Mia Hamms. Sounds like a little jealousy for the kids who are excelling around your daughter. Pretty childish. Speak for yourself if your thought is "they may give up by the time they are in high school". Pretty positive but your right anything can happen.

"And remember any team could beat any on any given day"- Thanks for the breaking news. Who really cares? At every level you win and lose. Thats the problem with most of the soccer mentality in this country. Training from the rec level is win win win and not building each players fundamentals. Individual development is what you should be concerned about. How is your daughter developing? If her training is only two nights a week with her team expect to fall behind.

This team's club isn't ECNL and they got to the highest level for non-ECNL teams by playing kick ball. Unfortunately they are not the only team playing this style they are in the majority and in the league to be in for Non-ECNL teams

We are off to Delco this weekend, and I hope the girls are successful. They train very hard and are very skilled, but we still keep coming up short against these kick and run teams. Its very frustration to watch our girls get pushed off the ball without any fouls being called, even though they are clear violations of the rules of soccer. I plan on being more vocal this weekend, but not to hear myself yell. Sometimes the ref. needs to understand that we are mindless mutes, that accept everything being served to us. A 50/50 ball does not mean you can push down our girl, and not be held accountable.

P.S. I am a respectful person, but if any parent from any team says anything, I mean anything, to our players expect them to be told to shut the F up...

All the necessary info needs to be out there about our options and what we are signing up for and then let us as parents choose our own route for our girls. We are not going to let 2 clubs control our options in NJ.
If we do we will have no control or leverage as to what we pay as families and what we get in return.

The shoulder charge although part of the game has been used as a weapon by both skillful and un skillful teams.

The Refs have latitude in calling a foul on this play and many times this leads to careless play. Unfortunately girls end up getting hurt.

You have many players that try to go "through the player" in order to disrupt play even when the ball is not in reach.


The game is physical , no doubt but it should never be played in a manner that highlights brutality over skill.

10:16- These other options are just as expensive, actually more when you calculate TOTAL costs. These other clubs are also filling their pockets.

Don't come out here trying to sound like Robin Hood. I agree there are plenty of options for youth soccer. All teams above town rec teams are competing for players/money. The typical carrot being college exposure.

Anonymous said...

10:25 I didn't mention costing less.
top trying to obscure the point.
The point was you don't have to accept being in a program where there will be more than 18 players on your team and your player is probably not going to dress and play in every game or event. That is the main difference and it is a significant difference any way you slice it.
Also you do not have to accept being on a team where players from the team above your team on the clubs ladder will send some of their players down to your team to take your daughters starting spot or her playing time for important games or events the club wants to win.
These differences may be acceptable to you and that is fine, but they need to be understood and evaluated as part of the process that does not exist outside of the 2 ECNL Clubs.

I agree with you. After all, this is Youth Soccer, not some Professional team.


the experience should be one of playing, not checking the roster to see if you are playing this weekend.

I can't believe Youth Soccer has come to this point.

This was never the case with my older daughter team and she played for one of these clubs.

This was unthinkable for these two ECNL clubs a few years back.

10:21 it's amazing how many parents on these elite teams don't even know there is such a thing called a shoulder charge and that it's a legit soccer tackle.
A shoulder on shoulder charge to knock a girl off the ball is perfectly legal No elbows, arms, shoving or hips, but shoulder to shoulder without jumping into the player. Even if Suzy gets knocked over, as long as the charge isn't excessive or reckless, it's fair. Girls are going to get knocked down, that's part if the game.

I cringe when I hear parents screaming over fair charges.

Shoving from behind is something I can't tolerate to watch. If a player extends her arms and shoves someone from behind it should be an automatic yellow.

How much notice do you think a coach should give you before he let's you know if your daughter is on a roster or not for a weekend?

It is not the shoulder charge but the interpretation and lead way a ref will give a team that determines the brutality of a particular game.

More lead way should be given on 50/50 balls than where no player has control of the ball as long as the play is not "reckless"

When a striker has position of a ball, here is where we must be careful in its interpretation. Although, defenders have the right to use the shoulder charge, I have seen numerous occasions where the defender was clearly over the line and had caused injury in what one might consider reckless.

Some have gotten calls others have not as it' s interpretation will vary widely depending on the quality of the Referee.

I suppose that is the game of Youth Soccer

If you are good enough to take on the team, you should be good enough to play in ALL events.
Otherwise don't take them on the team or charge them a lower amount in dues as a developmental player.
Anything else is unethical and unfair to the player and her family.Guaranteed they will be crying and demoralized each time they are left off the roster.
Over time this will have a negative impact on your childs confidence, love of the sport and psychological development( I stink, I'm just a scrub Mommy/Daddy,) .

9:17 here, glad there are some thoughtful comments, unlike 9:25, who is just trying to be funny. my kids team plays physical, but not dirty, I define dirty as:

• Pushing from behind, especially after you have lost the ball, again
• Running in the GK, even though she has possession
• Tripping, either lateral or from behind
• Cursing at the opposing player
• grabbing or pulling shirts

These are my top 5 most hated fouls.


Anonymous said...

10:45

Thanks for the ....ahem..... lesson

The problem is that shoulder charges ARE often excessively forceful - and often when the offending player has no play on the ball.

I think referee training and retraining - and especially referee RATING is lax in youth soccer. (this of course does not go for all officials - some are quite serious about their training and continued improvement)

At least when you don't get rostered at bigger clubs you had a chance to compete against the person taking your spot.

That is never going to stop, running in GK should be at least a talk with the player and warn do it again and yellow. Keepers are beat up these days, much is expected out of them. Also if you played soccer how about the player who puts his hands in your pocket shorts and pulls you down

Anonymous said...

@11:29. you use guest players to test and try them out for next season. That is a great way to see if they fit on a team, for both player and team, especially a long weekend tournament. Of course also if you actually need that position filled, usually a Goalie will guest play often.

Anonymous said...

I think the mistake parents make is not judging the strength of a team (if that is important - the winning) AFTER their child joins the team

If she is a strong player, the team gets that much stronger when she is added. So why just judge the team on its spring play? Maybe 2-3 others are also coming. Have to keep the ears and the mind open. How good COULD the new team be in time?

This vs same old same old ECNL crap, where you MIGHT be rostered and where you just wait for a club operative to start making phone calls early spring, sending e-mails/texts to the parents of your eventual replacement.

The poaching is the only thing that bothers me at all about these clubs. Other than this they have my great respect.

Anonymous said...

11:41, yes I pulled shirts when I played, but that was 40 year ago, but that was against other crazy boys. Its different when its your young daughter out there.

No warning for running into the GK, they all know not to do it, if it occurs, straight yellow!

I hope the girls have fun, we are playing 3 tough teams, hopefully more, if not, so what, they tried, and that is good enough for me.

11:43- I understand a goalie. Lets be honest, if your going on a long weekend your not taking a chance on a girl who might not be good enough for your team. Your bringing somebody you know will help your team.

11:50 we do not have roster over 18 on our team nor do we have a guest player unless due to injury or short roster we have

12:08- Don't sell yourself as the club that only rosters 15, but will bring in a guest player. Especially, when the guest player is replacing a healthy regular on the team.

If my daughter is injured she doesn't have to play because we have enough subs. Small teams tend to play injured girls who should be resting. Small teams tend to play too many games trying to compete with the big teams.

So your the team that only rosters 15 but wants to play "National Championships" in the summer heat all over the country.

If your daughter is not rostered does she still get to dress out and sit on the bench with the team and travel with her team or is she in streeet clothes on the parent sidelines during games?
Does your family still have to travel and get a hotel for tournaments or away events? Are you obligated to still come to games when you are not chosen to roster? Is this the case for even the NPL teams in the club?

Anonymous said...

Yes to all. She is still part of the "team". She will support the girls that supported her when they weren't rostered. She will root for her "team" to win. She will watch the game and learn from the bench that game.

When the league schedule originally came out she planned on being at all of them. She won't go because she's not playing?

My daughter likes her "team". Some parents get very upset that their "superstar" isn't playing. Some parents over value their daughters ability.

I can 100% say that my daughter is a much better soccer player then she was last June.

So your saying the team is allowed to dress non rostered players for events and have more than 18 players dressed in uniform on the bench during games?
That must make it very hard for the refs to keep track of the uniform numbers of players on the bench during games who can be subbed in and those who can't.
Do the refs memorize the 18 eligible numers of rostered players or do they hold the roster in their hand or pocket to refer to whenever there is a substitution?
Has your family paid for travel(plane flights, hotels, etc,) to out of state events when you knew your daughter would not be rostered?

Anonymous said...

ECNl Rules require non rostered players to wear the opposite color jersey that the team is wearing in order for them to be identified as non rostered players.

So if team is in Black for the day, the non rostered players will wear home white. These make them easily identifiable as non rostered players and yes they may join their team on the bench.

Most times this would not happen as those girls that are not rostered are usually playing with the NPL team and getting plenty of playing time.

Playing time and practice time is never the issue with these clubs, Its playing time with the team you originally rostered for that is the issue.

The Injured player may sit with the time as much as they like.

The girls have to hand their player pass when they enter a game. If they come out they can not re-enter without their player pass. Very easy for the refs.

Are families who have financial need and are on partial or full scholarships for club dues receiving anything from the club to offset these travel costs(including plane tickets and hotels), especially when their daughter is not dressing or playing yet must travel out of state?

2:40 OK Since the NPL Teams in these clubs also roster more than 18 how does the ECNL players who are not rostered with their team move down and get "plenty" of playing time in the NPL game without causing players on the NPL Teams roster to not lose the chance to roster or get "plenty" of minutes in their NPL teams game or event?
Does this not cause dissension among the players and parents on the NPL team who are paying full dues to play for the NPL Team and attending all their teams practices and earning their spot/role and then have someone come down and move them out for an event. Sounds just like a team bringing guest players(ringers) for an event on a team who already has over 18 players on their own roster and tasking playing time from the NPL teams regular players.

2:40- Question for you-

The other day you stated your teams poor results were based on injuries. You say you rostered 15 this season. Did you play injured players or play with an inadequate number of subs?

Never said poor results were based on injuries.
Said injured players returned and team looked better in Sundays game.Played short for a month.
Injured players sat out until cleared by their doctors.
That is why we are happy to be going to 17 rostered for U14.
Would never say roster of 14 or 15 was desirable.
Again you are spinning.
Why not asnswer the 2 questions asked above.
Are they not legitimate questions based on your own previous statements above?

I call BS on plenty of playing time between ecnl and npl teams. ? It absolutely causes dissention. Who would say it doesn't? Only little studies kid who plays the whole game no matter what.

Or those in club who benefit at the expense of the girls.

At the PDA tournament an AJAX Dad told me to my face that they are not happy when girls from OTHER teams come to play, we both laughed when he said others, but I knew what he meant.

P.S. Sorry to spill the beans.

An Ajax dad told me at the PDA tournament that he was talking to an idiot from the other team?

4:00 is that you?

He was probably upset at the "quality" of the player. Don't think they scored any goals that weekend.

2:40 from today here.


I do not know if this causes distress on the NPL team. i would suppose that it would if it interfered with a NPL player getting their time.

And yes this may not be a good thing.

But since a few girls from an NPL team may play with the encl. team in that week. That would certainly create open spots for the NPL team.

Think of it this way. If the 2 or three top players from the NPL team are asked to play on the ecnl teams, they are most likely the better players on the NPL team and would be getting at least 75% playing time if they played for the NPL team that weekend. If girls from ECNL team went to play for NPL team they would probably get equal or less -which can create more time for the existing NPL players if it's only a half game... Who may lose out is the 19or 20th player that gets bump off the NPL team that would have had a chance to play if the non rostered ECNL girls didn't go to the NPL teams to play.


Either way, its always better giving a promotion to players rather than a demotion to ECNL players.

I think its better for all involved.


But if you are the 19th or 20th player on the NPL team, you have to wonder why the parents are still there

4:28, hahaha, yes I guess I am the idiot you mention. But what I say is totally true, that is what he told me, and after reading all of the amusing posts about this, I can see why he was not amused. Did he mentioned what team this idiot (me) was with?
