PA Classics joins EDP - with PAC and Rage joining EDP for next fall- Is NPL in the cards?
1776 may be joining EDP as well in the fall.
EDP Central Division looks pretty weak. NJ Wildcats winning it so far with only 4 matches played. They did poorly in Region 1 Champions league top division.
7:24 EDP is a NPL league
Who won the MF/Galaxy state cup game?
8:35 yes and no. EDP has an NPL flight. Clubs need to be approved by both NPL and EDPThen you have the EDPD1 North and CentralD2 North,Central& SouthMAPS D1MAPS D2Just because you play EDP - doesn't mean you are in a NPL league.CurrentlyThere are 12 Clubs in EDP NPL. I think PA Classics and Rage would be a nice addition.
NJ Cup Final 4PDA Dragons vs MF NPLPDA Ajax vs STASome expected the F1 NJ Wildcats to make a run at the NJ double since they already have the NCS belt (I was one of them).
3 of 4 from last Springs State Cup semis. STA replaces Storm. No surprises.
This State Cup actually has competition..... Totally different than NCS. Nobody played in the other one. Love the final four format they do in the one weekend. Good luck to all.
6:52 I disagree, NCS was competitive. I agree the best teams were missing but its nice to see other teams advance with a chance to win.You really want every final 4 to be PDA and MF?
Please do not disrespect the level of play with the last four here. Not even close to the level of the last state cup. Quarter finals level of play was a much higher level of competition. As many found out... Call it as it is......
Hard to argue that this state cup blew the Fall one out of the water in terms of quality of teams. All that was missing was the Storm and MF ECNL. I think it is interesting to count how many times the teams have been to the State Championship weekend in the Fall and the Spring since going full sided. Says a lot for consistency that 3 of the 4 that are here this year were here last year. You didn't have that in NJYSA State Cup. Yes, Storm isn't there and MF ECNL aren't here but who else was missing?
the MF ECNL players played in state cup
Which state cup they played in?
Enough of the nonsense! MF ECNL players did and are playing in State Cup. All you have to do is look on the rosters. The sad thing is the girls on the team that sit so MF can try to win the cup and put their ECNL players in.It is what it is, if you dont like it and your on the team, leave! If you dont like it and your not on the team, Tuff "the stuff that comes out of your butt"!
STA will take the whole cupPDA other than storm is over ratedand MF NPL is average at best
Difference is that in NON-ECNL clubs the NPL teams/rosters are 18 or less and players dress and play every game and also there are no ECNL players to bring down and take your spot for important NPL matches.Significant differences.
Its also not a true representation of the teams that put ECNL players on roster for state cup.Listen, that's what PDA and MF have to do to get ahead. Truth is their NPL teams can't cut it. Blows a huge hole in their theory about how its all about development.So if they win, no posts about how strong the academy is because its BS.They are taking their handful of ringers to win the events.Cheaters way.
Funny because if you were at the game you would have seen that all MF girls played plenty.... Keep knocking these final four teams. Bitter people that are involved with teams that are already out usually try to knock the ones that are above them. Happens in all sports.....
It all makes sense now why neither PDA or MF ECNL did not apply to NJ Cup.They knew they were going to do this from the start.Crap move.
It's true. It's basically winning under false pretenses.
Dude - nobody is knocking the teams in the Final 4.
10:26 You do realize that Storm and MF ECNL have 3 games in South Carolina this weekend right?I think it's pretty hard for them to be in 2 places at once. I can see the NPL teams using ECNL players that didn't dress since they will probably be NPL next season if they stay with club.Either way a trip to Indiana will be on the line this weekend with the NJ Cup champion going to the National Cup.
We also know that you do not take the full player roster to every event.Good try.
Stop complaining. Like all academies, there are pools of girls under the umbrella. They are used amongst all teams. Deal with it. That is why they are the top of the top most of the time. And if you are not part of that pool, why do you care???
PDA will do the same thing. Girls not going to Carolina may show up this weekend. And there is nothing wrong with that.
Don't put PDA in the same boat as MF. Only thing in common is that they are both ECNL clubs.MF uses guest players and brings top ECNL players down to all teams for wins.PDA has not done this. Everybody mocks their big rosters. They have the depth to field competitive teams through injuries. It allows injured players the opportunity to recover instead of rushing back.NJ is a very small soccer world. We have seen these girls from U8. Everybody knows who plays on what teams.
PDA and MF are not leaving their top ECNL players home this weekend. If players are left behind they are either injured or are going to the NPL team next year.
If the rosters are so big, why bring ECNL players to State Cup games???
11:14There is something wrong with that.its false, its sneaky and in this case you are presenting a false team and then claiming the academy is so strong, when really its just a select few. FALSE ADVERTISING
I agree on the point that state cup games should be original rostered players with no add ons. Rosters should be submitted at entry admission and be final.If a player is injured or someone comes on board last minute, they sit out.Just my 2 cents.
They all are rostered before the events. A storm goalie has played with Dragons numerous times. Please do not say PDA does not do this..... It is a lie.
if you really care to know what is going on in any club, find a parent or someone else on the inside and get the real scoop. While a small amount of what is posted on here is somewhat based in facts and reality, the rest is garbage... I really hope people who aren't in the know aren't turning to this blog for real advice and/or guidance. If you are one of them, forget everything you've read here and ask real people the questions that you have. This blog is like the WWE - it's not real; it's entertainment.
Storm players with Ajax in SCStorm players with DragonsMatters not that they wont be at semi or finalIs what it is. The secondary teams - and even the supposed separate teams (Ajax) have BOOSTS when necessaryThey do not wish to compete on their own merits.
The ONLY team with the constant roster in the final 4 is STA. Post above... You make posts like that to justify to yourself that all you stated is whats right with this world. In youth sports including soccer, it should be black and white, not grey! How about the girls that do play all season and sit because the coach brings down the higher level players. How do these girls feel? Oh yeah, they dont matter.
There are 2 teams in the semis that competed all spring on their own merit without any other players. Can you name them?
The event in SC is an ECNL event, so I'd guess you'll see far less roster mixing this weekend. Both MFA and PDA have very good 3rd teams so I guess you could still see that.
Ajax even used pda storm players vs dragons in ne-npl game saturday.vs their own club they couldn't even let the regular ajax players get all the playing time and get the game experience. don't understand the pda agenda there.
Curious to see the turnouts for today.MF and PDA both holding tryouts.PDA should have a minimum of 45 girls - so we should see something like 70 girls.MF should have similar numbers.
12:32 not trueYou have made some very obvious "adjustments" to your roster.I don't want to be specific and call out the position. Get off your soap box you hypocrite.The one thing I liked about STA was their parents never felt the need to come on here and and boast about wins or justify losses.I know, your not a parent. You just happened to watch every single game.
12:55 if you remember Ajax said they lost to Dragons because they didn't have their best players. I guess no excuses this time? The agenda is who's number 2? Dragons or Ajax? they know who's number 1 (Storm) and number 4 (Shore).
Do your homework before going to MF or accepting anything. They will send you a nice acceptance letter stating you have 72 hours to accept and make your first $800 payment due in 3 installments by A certain date. Think hard and don't be pressured. They will always accept your check and they will always use guest players from other clubs and other teams.
If you go to ANY academy it will be cut throat. That is why they are already pulling away from everyone else and will be far ahead next year. You will need to fight for time at this level and that is why it is above all others. Reality! Not for all but to not get it means you really should not be involved....
If you are part of an academy and think that is reality and they are that far ahead you must be drinking the kool aid. Do you think the best kids play and only for the best go the academies? Politics and bs all over. They are not that far ahead proven by what MF just did by bringing ecnl players to the npl to try and win a state cup. Kids that have been on that npl are now sitting the bench. Gonna be embarrassing if they don't win. Just saying and such
njcsa Galaxy just keeps losing.
Just curious what player was added to STA. they have the same girls as they did at the first tournament in Sept. We played them in the fall and spring. No change to that roster.
Nice try. I will not specifically mention the position that has been adjusted. It's not fair to players or parents. They have had u14 players play on their U13 roster for a majority of the season. Ajax uses top ECNL players when possible. Dragons use an ECNL goalieMF black, blue and NPL use ECNL "ringers"Wildcats boasting about using Storm players Get off your soap box STA. STA welcome to the winners circle. You are not above getting called out for roster moves now.
Is it not ok to borrow a goalie when your goalie is hurt? Seems logical to me unless you keep 2-3 gaolies on your team.
@206....."Wildcats boasting about using Storm players"Huh?
If you do not think that after combining all of their top players that these academies are not going to be at another level, good luck with thinking otherwise. One solid kid who can possibly compete for a position at one of these academies is not going to be able to carry their team as much as we move forward. But good luck.
and you must be one of them not receiving the invite for the A squad. so of course it isn't fair and has to with politics, favorites, suck ups, etc...
Hey 3:01, Look at May 3rd 10:09 am post.
I know we all like to kill NJ Wildcats.Below are the opportunities they are giving their kids at u13 and I'm sure it will be the same at u14 and so on.

Wildcats didn't "use" a Storm player for an event.She left Storm and carded with Wildcats Team this weekend.
Dragons still a B team no matter how good you say they are said so by the Almighty Powder Blue.
5:03- What do you call a team that loses to a B team?
5:03 Nothing wrong with being a good B team. But you are correct.All NPLs have a PDP like ECNL that can send their players to id2.NorthEast Girls NPL will never have that opportunity. Because if she was that level player she would be on ECNL team. Having said that these teams will always be a B team no matter how many games they win. For some people that's good enough for others it's not. Both are right
5:22- You seem very insightful. What happens when B and C teams beat these teams that send their players to id2?You realize the 3 NE NPL teams are in the final 4 AGAIN.... in NJ Cup?Odd you skipped over this???Keep gassing up your car and chasing all the 'National" events.
Ajax used at least 2 storm players for state cup.
There are 2 teams in the semis that competed all spring on their own merit without any other players from any other team. Can you name them?
Its definitely no MF npl
Hey 5:22, there are only 2 ECNL teams in NJ. if your daughter is not on one them, wouldn't you want her on the next best option? In NJ it is a "B" team. Not so in any other state as far as I can tell.
What are the two teams? Because I have first hand knowledge that none of the true Academy teams have played with only the rostered players from last August.
Wrong answer. Try again.
7:00 How about from last September or this Spring? You don't know what you are talking about.
Did I hit a nerve 5:09? Are you still hoping to play for Storm? Think hard...Powder Blue is not even looking at your players.
Really, 7:41? What are you doing?
Obviously 7:41 is the same guy that will put down anything PDA and MF no matter what the facts are. You are truly a sick person who needs help. MF and PDA don't want your kind.
State wins the state cup easy. MF and PDAall lose using ecnl players. GGoing to be a real embarrassment.
11:19am PDA is the club that started that whole process. Last year they brought down players at EVERY age group to advance to the NPL. They did this as well for years for State Cup and the NJ Cup.Please don't say PDA does not do this
When the keeper gets hurt you replace her with someone on your roster, as has always been the case with any injuries on any other team.Saying you only took the storm keeper because yours got hurt is still using ringers and not winning with your own players/team.there are plenty of teams without 2 keepers, when the keeper gets hurt a field player goes in goal and they move on and play with what they have on their own roster.
9:13. Ajax or Dragons? What SC game?
Making stuff up.
I don't think any position player should ever play goalie at this level. A big risk of getting hurt. Each team should carry 2 goalies or do what PDA does and allows goalies to play up and down in a pinch. Better than seeing a field player get injured.
Delco Schedules come out today
6:13pm last night sums it up. 3 of 4 teams in SC finals are NE NPL academy "b" teams. Safe to say it is clearly your next best bet after the two ECNL. I know it may kill others to hear that but the truth is in the final four...... Is there a case for anything better?
8:22Nice try. MF npl is njx. Just changed name to mf npl. Worse training more money and play in sh***y league travelling the east coast. State cup is only a four win championship this year. In years past has been 5. This year 4 games with 40 byes. When MF brings in 6 ecnl players for quarters and semis, is it still a npl team. You know the ecnl players didn't sit the bench, the npl players did
There are 2 teams in the SC semis in NJ that competed all spring on their own merit without any other players from any other team. Can you name them?
There is one STA
Still have not heard a better case. So your team that lost is in a "better" league. Please tell. Embrace that your team is not better than the teams you love to call B teams. You must be tired from late shift you worked last night. Yeah, we know who the MF NJX basher is....
Stop with the nonsense. There are good B teams (MF NPL, AJAX, Dragons) and other teams (Wildcats, STA). All are good teams. No reason to diss any of them.
Sorry to side track the NJ discussion...if PL wins PA State Cup, will the girls who are leaving for PF still be with the team at the end of June for the Region 1 tournament. I would think PF would want them practicing with their new team by then.
Ask yourself that question, would you really want to be with your old team??
10:30Ask yourself THIS question, if you daughter had the chance to win a another state championship, and compete for a regional title, maybe national, with girls she's been best friends with since they were 8, would she? Right now it's not their "old"" team, until July 31st it's their "current" team. They can walk away any time they want but I bet they want to finish the goals they set for themselves this year.
It seems that EPA is catching up to NJ.What a mess!
10:01That applies to most clubs that have more than one team at an age group, but Wildcats only have one team, so wouldn't they technically be the A team and then if another team is formed at the club at that age group that would be the B team.I'm a little confused with the A Bor is it that all ECNL are A and everyone else is B which I think is ridiculous
It seems that EPA is catching up to NJ.What a mess!Can clubs having 25 player rosters on 3 teams in each age group be far off in PA?
I believe STA also only has 1 team in this age group. Also TSF.
Teams making of fun of MF NPL for not participating in Top tournaments, top flights, bad leagues, etc. Once again here they are in the semis of NJ Cup.Only team to ever beat them in this format was PDA Storm. Its been a great run.
TSF has a team in this age group?
MF NPL-uses ECNL playersDragons-uses ECNL Ajax-uses ECNL playersSTA-uses other players (gk)So the jackass who keeps talking about this spring when the season started only a month ago really needs to stop wasting our time. Apparently MF is using ECNL players and we all know the non rostered ECNL players from PDA have played for both Ajax and Dragons. Parents talk from all the teams so stop with the bs. There are only 2 teams in the Semis of the SC who didn't use guest players in the fall. Can you name them? LMAO
That shows you that you don't know the teams. There are 2 teams whether you want to beleive it or not that are legit in playing only their players. And they are in the Semis using only their players.
And they beat your daughters team using only their players.
I don't follow other teams players. Just know what your parents have stated.
Only STA has not used players not rostered to their team for all events this spring in state cup.Dragons used storm GK all along.Position doesn't matter as bringing storm keeper down obviously helped you get there. If it would have been NCS state cup Dragons could not have used Storm GK.

Next year NYCSL NPL and New England NPL will have a crossover Cup that will send the Champion to NPL finals (it starts this year at u14).My guess is the Fall League Champion will represent the league and the Crossover Cup will be played in a Spring sending a 3rd team from this group to NPL Finals.

NJ teams doing great in league play. PDA and MF cruising in NE NPLSTA and NJ Crush are 1st and 2nd in NYCSL NPL NJ soccer dominating interstate league play.
My daughter has played against NJX since U8. Though I do not like the team we all have to give them tremendous respect. I don't know what the future holds for those players but they have had one heck of a run. Good luck to all the teams playing in SC this weekend.
us club based soccer has replaced the foldaways of US Youth soccer.If you are a club based team. you may use any girl who is age appropriate to represent any team within the club.very rarely will club play a top 8 player to the lower level unless players on the lower level are hurt or not there for other reasons. Club teams will give girls that do not play as much on the first team a chance to get playing time on the second team.Youth soccer old timers may hate that these clubs that have plenty can do this but it is within the rules of US Club soccer .if you can't beat it then join a club that has the ability to do the same to even the playing field.But to blame clubs just because they take advantage of a rule which was implemented to give clubs and girls total flexibility across the age group is just plain whining and pining for the days of old.
I reoeat, there are 2 teams in the SC semis in NJ that competed all spring on their own merit without any other players from any other team. Can you name them?
No because they are no longer in the state cup!!!!!! Let it go. Why you become part of a program and not just a one off team..... But keep telling yourself you are doing it the "right" way. Dopey.
12:24 Always a great job bringing all the league standings to this site.Based on the league standings it is very clear where the better NJ teams are playing.NE NPL has 3 out of semi finalistsEDP NPL undefeated North and South teams knocked out in quarter finals.NYCSL NPL- STA in semis by knocking out an EDP league leader.
Funny how 12:41 forgot to mention Region 1 Championship league. I believe that contains teams from various states, including the great and powerful NJ.
1:33 Thanks.Never looked at it that way, interesting.Makes you wonder what would have happened in NCS if all participated.Curious to see how many NJ/NY teams take advantage of the EDP Open Cup next year playing teams from PA and MD that are not in their regular league (If the new teams like PA Classics and Rage enter).
The undertone of the MF-NJX issue is the parent coach favoring her kid. There was a great presentation given a few years ago at a soccer symposium dealing with the negative impact of abusive parent coaching. The presenter stated that parent coaches who over rank their kid, over play their kid, throttle or suppress other players to provide their own child with an easier path into the line-up and on and on are in this presenter's opinion abusive personalities.But since you can't change in most cases that character trait and in many cases the favored child grows up soft/weak as having been favored by the mom or dad...the biggest victim of the abuse are the typically 1-4 other players who were suppressed by the abuser coach and who did not get fair value for their parents dollar; did not get fair opportunity to perform and get minutes; did not get a fair chance to succeed or fail. The presenter also indicated that the abuser needs "abusees". Parents who either don't know they are getting abused or worse who do know and choose to allow it. In many cases the abuser and the abusee show outwardly that they are fond of each other but behind each other's backs the abuser sees the abusee as a fool and the abusee resents the abuser
Did the said coaches kid play more than other sub players? I have seen that team and can guess which player you are talking about but there are a few girls that play the entire game and sub players that all seemed to rotate in regularly. Kind of that way on all of these teams..... Except ECNL where not many play the full game anymore.....
Hey 1:31, come again?
Three teams can now rely on the "we were missing players" line after this weekend.
The answer, 1:26, you were looking for is STA and the Dragons. Doing it with what they have!
2:27 you are just as big of an idiot as 2:02! Or the same poster.....So your answer to your kid, who was a sub player to begin with, is she is not getting more time ONLY because another player has "connections"?? You obviously never played competitively and I feel for your kid if that is what you are telling her. Good luck with that. Time to face reality. She did not pop up on any of these other top of the list teams so just maybe she was getting the time she should have been getting based on ability all along. Move on.
2:36Yes another one that has very deep pockets or is a chosen one heard from.
ENOUGH with the NJX parent coach slamming. Not sure what kind of vendetta you have but it is sick. The NJX coach was a volunteer - and like all volunteer coaches - gave tremendous amounts of time to a team of girls who have achieved a lot. There are volunteer parent coaches all over the state and few of them have coached a team that was as successful as this team has been and even fewer actually willingly step away. I have only seen this team play a few times as my kid's team doesn't compete at this level, but they had some young guy coaching the team at last year's NJ Cup Finals and now they are at a club where parental influence is basically non-existent. I don't know what kind of hateful person you are 2:02. But let it go and get some counseling.
The best way to let something go is to not reply to it. But you felt compelled to get in your views. Using the word "volunteer" does not change the point. You attack the messenger and the message but not the matter.A volunteer coach has the power to be abusive. Whether this coach is or is not is between her and her players. But the point made by the presenter at the conference is spot on. And no matter how many words you write in all caps changes that.No need to reply about the messenger or the message. Just the matter. Is it ok to you that a parent's child gets overt preferential treatment over other players? If you are ok with it, then fine.
And you can pontificate all you want. Does not make the statement true either...... That is my response.
"now they are at a club where parental influence is basically non-existent."insert Vincent Price laugh here..
The escape clause in that statement is the word basically, it gives an out in most cases, and I’m not even a damn lawyer, nor do I want to be.
The parental influence was reinforced when she brought an entire team and $30000 to MF. Just like politics in New Jersey corruption for preferential treatment
"Parents who either don't know they and their child are being abused or who do know and choose to allow it"Isn't that very similar to the parent who puts/keep their child on a team with a roster of more than 18 where she will not play or even dress every game?
Your daughter was a sub player and subbed equally with all other sub players. Let it go. If she deserved more time on that team, why is she now NOT playing on a team of the same level? Never easy to look within.....
Parent coaching:lets see:Match NPL has onePDA has oneWorldclass has oneMatchfit has oneIt seems this is the best way for a parent to look out for their daughter.. A little more playing time, Usually put in a central position or next to someone that will protect themit is a certainty that special treatment is given but they will look you right in the face and say no way.These coaches are simply trying to game the system. Unfortunately starting next year, those days are officially over.Honey, you are on your own!
5:03Well said and was well protected. Not next year
Funny all the meatheads on here that never played at this same high level as their kids.....ALWAYS politics and favoritism at the top. Toughen your girl up and deal with it. Giving her the attitude that it is always someone else's fault will not help her one bit. Now go enjoy your cigarette.......
5:23- The real topic has been the parents making excuses. Look at all 4 teams in the semisSTA has same team. There goalie moved up to U14 but is age eligible for U13. Her playing on U13 is not an issue.Dragons goalie was initially carded on Storm, as a backup. Storm only carried 1 goalie. Has been with Dragons all year.PDA Ajax- Several key players were brought up to Storm (Like all clubs do). Storm would send the non rostering players to Ajax when possible. This actually makes it tougher on Ajax when you have players your not familiar with showing up at games.MF NPL- Had a very good player start the season with them but was called up to the ECNL team quickly. Once again this is how good clubs operate.So technically, you can say that Dragons, Ajax and MF NPL used "ECNL" players at some point during the year. You can say STA used a U14 goalie this season. But all 4 of these teams have proven to be the best and deserve to be there. NONE of these clubs would risk their best ECNL players in an NPL league game. To be fair, they don't have to. Look at all of their records. They have completely dominated league play on their own.I understand that for some people they need to justify why they lose to B and C teams. How about we give these clubs some credit for fielding several very good teams.I admit its sad I know all this. All of these girls have competed against, played with, trained with and attended camps together. All 4 of these teams are full of girls who love to compete and play soccer. Don't minimize their hard work and accomplishments. Good Luck to ALL 4 this weekend. Stay heathy and have fun!
Has anyone seen the Delco schedule? It was suppose to be released today.
Very well said 6:00. Tired of the whiner(s). Play the games!
6:00, By far the best post this year. And spot on regarding each team mentioned. Thank you for setting the record straight.
6:00 Thanks for taking the time.If any anybody out here thinks these "B" and "C" teams are carried by the top ECNL players your wrong.Bring your daughter to the tryouts and try and take one of these girls spots. Bring a lot of water, ice and your usual excuses when the clubs say thanks for coming but......Good luck STA, Dragons, Ajax and MF NJX!
5:03it doesn't matter what you think because next year, they are on their own. Just watch how their playing time gets diminished!
Kids will be moving this tryout season. It's like a blindside on survivor.
Kids move every year. If your team stays static they will fall behind.
Any surprises at MF, PDA, STA, or wildcats tryouts last 2 days?
I'm hearing nj CRUSH may merge with stallions? I know they have to do something, most teams are in trouble and they are just a notch above the town club teams the girls have come from.
There will be some girls from all the teams mentioned here as top teams moving to PDA and MF ECNL. They have been at the tryouts and they will make the team. This is as it should be as these are the best of the best. The non-ECNL team will compete for the rest. It will be an interesting off season as these teams will change a lot.
PDA not changing much.
this is interestinghttp://thesoccerlist.com/top50girls/
My kid does not play for an ECNL Club3 clubs in our areaWorld Class- need to make\add players. Unsure if players making move to this clubPDA- made their moves last year and throughout the year. Moved players from Ajax to Storm team.Team sitting a top of league currently. Even though sitting top the league, I do not see this team the team to beat personally. We know what to expect from this team going forward. MF- Personally have huge upside. Combining NPL with ECNL Players will be the team to beat going forward.
World Class is getting at least one excellent player next year, rumor mill saying.No idea if they are losing any
Hear PDA and MF making lots of moves.
6 PMMF used one of their better ECNL players in a second tier SC win. This was not a player that wasnt getting ECNL minutesExplain.
How do you know this players wasn't getting minutes? If you were apart of that team, I think you would know why she is playing.
NJ Cup Predictions?STA vs Ajax- I am going to take STA in this one. They have been a surprise team this year. Have played well all year. I think this will be a good win for them. 2-1Dragons vs MF NPL- Similar to STA, the Dragons have had a great year and appear to be the most improved U13 team. MF NPL has dominated them in past Cup games. I think its a very close game but MF wins 1-0.GS Guy- Can you give us a break down of possible GS points available to all teams involved.
Only MF gains points if their ride ends in the final 4. They would get approx 185 pts.As Runner Up they would get approx504 STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 012224 PDA DRAGONS2494 PDA AJAX2686 MATCH FIT ACADEMY NPLAs Champion they would get approx5504 STA MORRIS UNITED NPL 017224 PDA DRAGONS7494 PDA AJAX7686 MATCH FIT ACADEMY NPL
GS Guy- Thanks. Thats crazy how fast you can churn that out.
I would think players from crush and tsf would try and make move now to wc. Pda has to many on storm, dragons would be a better move too. Why wait, look at your u14 teams, in a world of hurt and most waited to long. I'm sure only one or two players per team can even make the jump to ecnl, the best already made the moves.
I thought points and GS doesn't matter.Whose the point chasers now.
9:42 that is an ECNL team argument.There are no ECNL teams in NJ Cup final 4.NJ top GS teams with over 10k pts (Non-ECNL) without u12 points. Oh boy there is going to be a major drop off for some teams if they don't place. 15748 STA14784 NJ WILDCATS11210 PDA DRAGONS8391 NJ CRUSH8031 TSF5381 NJCSA GALAXY3513 PDA AJAX1758 MF NPL
Same breakdown for PA - no u12 Points17574 PL11434 Rage10550 HMMS8957 17767725 YMS7421 PA Classics6837 Ukranians5411 FC Rev
Isnt Crush U14 in position to go to Nationals with a win vs STA?
2 months ago TSF didnt have any worthy talent - now you want them at WC.Chill, pal. Let the girls try out and play where they wish. Your attempts to sway are comical. Parents do their homework, know where they wish their kid to be.
11:30 I think a lot of that swaying business going on.So did PDA and MF get what they expected at tryouts a good turnout of talent?
Not chasing points paying $200 for a local tournament. The point chasers have been eliminated from SC already. All EDP teams will get 7000 to 3500 GS points depending on whether you come in 1st or last.
Not true 1:18
why blame the teams when its EDP that set up the point systemIm sure when or if ECNL league gets points then it will all be OK right.Hypocritical moron
@9:35, why interesting, PDA and MF top 50 in country for girls, not surprised at all, perhaps MF above PDA is surprising, but that can change daily.
My daughters team got 5000 GS pts.Nah Nah Nah nah nah..You people are jokes. It don't mean a thing !!!
I agree with 1:20.The teams play in a league and that's all they can control. They can't control who else applies to the league or what flight they are in.EDP has D1 and so on that get's points as they should since they are paying to use GS for their league admin.EDP NPL also get's points as does NYSC NPL and New England NPL and RCL. All 3 of these NPLs and the RCL award fall and spring points.No one to blame here.ECNL is a manual enterNYSCL NPL is set up the same way as NorthEast NPL a straight through league. The league made arrangements to award it's teams GS points NorthEast looks like it didn't.
2:07 if that doesn't mean anything what is the purpose of this board since results don't matter for this age.

10:46. Great job. This site has it allFinancials- GS Guy, calculating flight valuesPolice reports- Coaches being replaced for poor decisions Comics- Wildcats "we played......" commentsInvestigative Reporting- speculation of who's leaving, programs merging. Sports- Updated league standings. Scores not yet posted Editorials- Soccer Nut gives some well supported ideas
you guys all still play terrible soccer, all 4 SC finalists play over the top, no passing through the midfield, or playing out of the back, just awful, and I feel sorry for your entire state...
Funny how 3 of the teams left in SC beat up on your PA teams all year long in league play..... But if knocking them is your MO then you are just a douche anyway! Take care.
My daughter is looking to move up to a u14 team, 15 next year. she will be going to HS next year and needs to play grade appropriate now. Looked at CRUSH, doesn't look like the team is staying together. Looks like igfa and stall ions are the best shot, then tsf. Didn't make WC. Any other good options and is anyone else in same situation?
What do most kids do who are in that sames spot, basically 8th graders on a U13 team? Where do you live? Kind of late as many of the tryouts are over.
Why do you feel she has to move to u15 next year ?Soccer Nut
Not the original poster but the answer is because U15, doesn't play in the Fall or at least has a reduced schedule. Playing HS soccer and Club Soccer is very demanding.
Heard the IGFA team is great, may be tough to get on. TSF team looked to have a thin bench, don't know if they are good, but they have a good reputation for training.
Tthe other thing is , talk to your current coach and set expectations for next season. Maybe he will be ok with her missing training once per week. We are in the same position, and that's what I did. Communication is good.
if that is the case then poster should think carefully about his decision to play his daughter up a year as the inconvience is only for one fall season.Then everything normalizes after that.A lot will depend on the player and her particular standings on her current team.Is her current team an ECNL team that play in college showcases at u14 or a high level club team.Will she be taking a step back in the role she will play by playing up?Lots of factors to consider and it will depend on the circumstances of the individual player.Soccer Nut
"Looked at Crush U14 - doesnt seem like they are staying together"- please - Crush has teams - and mostly MULTIPLE - at every age group. And STORM is in the hunt for a Nationals berth
11:10I dont think it is about missing training just once a weekSchool schedule you have to figure is 6 days on, with Sundays offDo you really want your 14 year old daughter playing 7 days a week (including Sunday club game)?U14s who are grade 9 should move up (if possible) or just take the fall season off.
12:00I guess we disagree. I think you have to be very very careful to make that choice.Soccer Nut
If my kid was in the same spot, I'd only move her if I knew she was going to make the Varsity as freshman. You are much better development wise playing club for a good club team than you are most Freshman or JV teams. On a good varsity that is not true.Seems like you must live in Bergen based on the teams you have mentioned. If you don't mind driving to Wharton you may want to reach out to Match Fit. They have multiple teams at U14.
We tried out and made crush, but then heard all the current players have already accepted other spots and all leaving. Tryouts are over, but evey club is still allowing us to try out. Leaning towards igfa now.
First of all U15 doesn't play in the fall so you have plenty of time to pick a club. Second of all join a club that rewards good players. She should already be guesting with the U14. If the club is not doing this already she is either not good enough or a poor club
Doesn't IGFA practice in Metuchen?
Vegas just posted NJ Cup lines. MF NPL 2/1PDA Dragons 3/1PDA Ajax 5/1STA 8/1.
1:31 that is funny, we need some levity on here. for c sake. I like MF, so agree with those odds. STA at 8-1 ouch. maybe I bet $10 on that just for the possible $90 return. in that second group I like NJCSA and Spurs to play on Sunday at 10am. I don't think BOCA or Haddonfield can go any further, but give a hand to them in this single elimination format.
I think you're right 2:00 PM. No one would leave Crush ever
Crush current u13 is fine. There is no drama and the team is not breaking up- no one is even leaving. And they still have a shot at Indiana as they are currently sitting in 2nd place in npl.I don't think there actually is an igfa team right now. Heard lots of tag girls showed up at WC for the second year in a row. Not sure if new coach took them though.
No one is leaving Crush U13? No one that you know about. I know for a fact that someone is leaving
Follow along folks, the person is talking about the current U14 team, not U13.
I'm not a bs artist, we were told by many people that all the girls are leaving and yes, it's the current u14 team we tried out for. If you say that all the girls have not accepted other spots on other teams from crush u14, then you don't have a clue.
Vegas odds for U13 girls.What a dic !
Crush is not a place that develops individual soccer players.
3:35 Are you serious with that post he can't be that, there can be only one tool on the board and that title belongs to me along with a few others. I loved the Vegas odds, also like STA at 8/1. Let me guess you don't horse around with your kid?The funny thing is you have a beef with odds on a u13 GIRLS board but yet you call someone a tool on a u13 GIRLS board. Nice!
Hahaha, 9:13 has got it right, but I don't think he is from PA, since that is the same style they play, if I had to guess, I would say a NY guy bashing NJ. That post made me laugh out loud, good one.
i have to agree, these four teams play "ping pong" soccer.It is embarrassing watching the shortcuts these coaches have taken with these girls.
Haven't seen any u13 teams not ping pong the ball around the bitch. U guys need to really stop acting like these girls are suppose to play like Barcelona. They are u13. Go watch a College or Professional women's game and they are ping ponging the ball all game long. Of course everyone would love the kids to play beautiful ball but give the kids a break. They are compeating and will eventually play better.
I think 2 PM means that Crush hasnt even finished the tryout process thus offers would not have gone out yetDoes sound a bit fishy that a current U13 parent from whatever team thinks the daughter can just step on and play with IGFA 15s next year.
Welcome to the semi-finals. Hope you enjoyed the week of put downs by all those whose daughters are not playing. Happens every year. Now if you lose tomorrow your daughters team will not be worthy to even be in the top 10 in the state. The teams that didn't make it will claim they are superior. Also happens every year.Jealousy is cruel!
