 This is a time when players develop a true love for the game and the focus is a little more intense, on the field and on the sidelines...

Why are you posting the Real Marlboro score? Anyone can look it up. The central division isn't Very strong other than voorhees

Anonymous said...

Wow that bethesda tournament looks real tough.

Three NJ teams didn't make top bracket
SJEB
Match fit
Bergen Bulldogs

Sjeb isn't a top bracket team cause they r rebuilding y play top bracket. They lost 3-1 to Voorhees today not a bad showing for a team that barley had a team this year.

Voorhees vs SJEB today was a well played game. Both teams played a hard physical game.

This is 7:18- I just don't understand why someone posts a score of one random game from the weekend. No commentary, just a score. It struck me as strange as it always does when just a score that you can easily find online is posted.

@ 7:18 why the hate at EDP Div 1 Central? It's the top ranked flight at this age group. Can't be just Voorhees driving up those ratings. Lots of quality teams in there. Google EDP Fall League 2015 Gotsoccer.

Anonymous said...

Maybe 7:18 thinks it is weak because Lyon isn't there. EDP 1st divisions are all very strong this fall. It will be interesting to see how things get shifted around for spring.

Lyon was initially slotted for 1st division north before they changed their minds and backed out.

Lyon Lyon Lyon Lyon.....
Voorhees Voorhees Voorhees.....
SDFC SDFC SDFC SDFC......
(These 3 teams consume the blog, oh.... and PDA South of course)

Just don't get all the hype when none of the above mentioned teams will win their brackets. Voorhees certainly can't be the only decent team in top flight central when they drew twice. Albertson will finish above SDFC. And Lyon, ugh, the never ending story of playing up. Let our ears rest!!!!!

this is a u12 blog. We should be talking about those teams- there is a lot of talk of other good teams to- SJEB, Bergen, Real, Middletown and others. If we are not allowed to talk about the teams, what should we talk about? The weather? Good luck to all as the fall season is coming to a close. Our team has played many tough games this season and we have seen great soccer of all different styles. On any given day, any team can beat another. There is no one best team. There are a lot of good teams which is best for our girls.

Does EDP have relegations and promotions based on record between the first and second divisions? If so, how many teams get promoted/relegated?

Anonymous said...

@9:10. It depends. Some struggling teams have legit injury issues holding them back and should stay. Some Academy's will fight hard to keep their teams in highest flights even though they clearly don't belong. With 3 Div 1 flights, it's already watered down. Some deserve to move up/down. Not all good Div 2 can play Div 1. Just ask Nutley, Nj Wildcats.

Sjeb is now a average team. They were pretty good before they lost a lot of there better players. Now they are average. @834 why bring up Sjeb are you stirring the pot cause your kid isn't on the team anymore.

Any team in div 1 edp is a good team. Big difference between the worst div 1 team and best div 2 team.
Don't think any of the big clubs will get knocked around too much but some might not have a choice.
2nd division still up for grabs. Will come down to match between Harrison and sjeb west. Winner takes all.
PDA Barcelona played against wash united from div 2 in a crossover and beat them soundly. Wash united is among the top of div 2.
Doesn't matter after the spring anyway. The sh*t hits the fan once tryouts start for fall 2016.

Anonymous said...

Agree..there is a very big difference between worst div 1 team and best div 2 team. I think the "academies" will fight being moved down to Div 2 Harrison has 2nd division locked up with 21 points. SJEB West has 15 points with one match remaining against Harrison.

West has 2 more games. Harrison and Deptford. But the ties they had screwed it for them.

If west wins both matches they will have 21 points. Harrison would have 21 points. West would win due to head/head win vs harrison.

East is 3-0-12 in last 15 games. West is the stronger squad. These teams aren't merging next season.

10:47, why do you care who hops from club to club? Are you upset that they have teams that actually want their kid or upset that their old club had no problem taking them back? Jealousy is ugly and God don't like ugly. How about you worry about your own little super star instead of everyone else's. Peace be with you!

Anonymous said...

Club hoppers I don't get that comment since it was directed to one person cause only one person has gone back to the east team. That kid has been on the east for 4 yrs and went to a different team it didn't work they went back. That is not club hopping. Club hopping would be multiple teams in a few season. At least get your facts right before u make a comment. @1047 y make a comment u know what parent is back on the east. It sounds like your trying to start trouble.

Anonymous said...

@1127 you can't go by wins and losses since the west never plays top flight.

Put yourself in EDP's shoes. If sjeb east finishes last in div 1 and harrison finishes first, what do you do?

other scenario, sjeb east finishes last and sjeb west finishes first, what do you do?

with three pda teams in div 1 I could see them pushing barcelona down if they finish last.

the big clubs have so much power. I wonder if edp would cave to pressure to leave the big club teams alone?

EDP could bring one team up and not take a team down. Only 9 teams in 1st div central. A good race going on in the north div's

EDP will do whatever WC,PDA,MF and the other academies tell them to do.

Anonymous said...

Exactly..the "Academies" run the league. So where they want their teams is where EDP will put them and EDP then fills in the rest with non-EDP member teams. EDP is a select group as is NPL and ECNL. Once you are in you stay (no matter how bad your teams are)
but getting in is tough to almost impossible.

EDP is a "select" group? Is that a joke? They have watered it down and take anyone now. Check the younger age groups as proof.

It does look like edp is accepting everyone and just flighting them lower and lower. It makes me think they are trying to put Jags out of business

Meant to say the EDP All-in-Clubs is a select group. Agree that EDP is taking everyone from JAGS as well as from SJ Girls Soccer league in the south.

Thanks for the vote of confidence but no, we did not dominate anyone on Sunday. We played an exceptionally strong opponent to a 0-0 tie after 80 mins and was fortunate to win out in PK's. It was a great game effort from both teams.

Yup they are. 2 sisters leaving for TX. One is the best defender by far on the team and the younger sister is clutch. Huge loss. Rumor has it a couple other gals leaving for PDA/Barons. Looks like Real and Penn Fusion will be the favorites. Btw, great division win Real. Wonder if Barcelona (PDA) will get dropped to division 2

Voorhees will be just fine for the spring. I think they have bigger goals then just winning their EDP division.

Great job Voorhees. They are a good group of girls. I am sure they will manage just fine for the spring even with some minimal changes to their roster. Happens to all the teams and we all manage through it. I'm pretty sure that they will still stay on top. Great job to all the teams this fall season. Here's to hoping the spring season comes fast.

@8:25 as George Washington said "it's better to offer no excuse then a bad one."

If Voorhees is aiming to accomplish bigger and better tasks then winning EDP, winning EDP should of been in fact, water under the bridge for such a talented team? Such an easy accomplishment that wasn't successful. Come Spring you will suffer no dispute about that. The injuries you referred to all season were because you brough birth year 2005 girls on your roster that just can't compete with the intensity of 2003-2004 girls. That's always a very risky scenario for their safety. But Lou, when winning is everything, you did make poor decisions. And..... Make excuses for losing the division all the while. Oh happy day.

You can't compare one team's loss to anothers loss and assume that that predicts the outcome If 2 teams that never faced each other actually played. It doesn't mean Lyon would beat Voorhees 6-1 because Lyon lost 1-0 to south shore and voorhees lost 7-1. Until they play, we do not know what would happen in the game.

Things must be bad at MatchFit. They can't win a watered down EDP tournament against mostly town teams? Can't score a goal against West Essex?

I think the west Essex coach was blowing the refs before their games because those calls were sh*t. Those girls were blantenly taking down girls on the other teams. Arms extended, full on 2 hand pushes in the box taking down players getting ready to score etc etc. they know they were wrong and so did their parents with their owww we got lucky on that call chatter. Coaches need to teach players how to play actual soccer instead of having them take temper tantrums on other players before getting the ball and even after they couldn't get the ball because they couldn't get the ball all the time. But guess what, at least the other teams can walk away saying they played a clean game and karma isn't pretty. I'll pray for you west Essex. I'll pray you get coaches and trainers who actually can get your girls to play actual soccer instead of rugby Hahahah

with the birth year change coming in the fall, we all know that teams will be realigning or playing up for fall '16. Will more teams realign by birth year or stay intact?

It is odd that there hasn't been an announcement from The ECNL yet. I think they (US Soccer) are actually confused themselves because of one thing. Right now there is a trend for 9v9 to U12 (03/04s). If the rules was in effect today, all of those 2003s would be playing 11v11. In effect, the argument that kids will play on small sided fields longer is not true. Also, the idea that more kids will play up is also bunk. Say you have a 2004/U11 playing up at U12. If that kid still wants to play up, she'll now be playing U14 against all 2003s. Much harder than what she is currently do.

Anonymous said...

The above poster makes the best point I've seen yet to show what a mess this age change is. The goal is to play small sided longer but now that will not be the case. They should go back to the original chart but then we are not lined with the rest of the world and we won't be able to find the next soccer phenom.

Under the revised age group matrix issued by US Soccer on 10/21, 2004s are are identified as U13s which means they will be playing 11 v 11. This makes sense for the large group of 2004s already playing 11 v 11.

Anonymous said...

Almost Half of 2004s (August- December 2094 birthdays) are playing 9v9 for u11 this year and should have remained 9v9 for next year for u12 but because of the birth year switch they will be forced up to 11v11 a year early because they skip u12 and go to u13. This is the problem with making a blanket change to the she groups. I am not in support of the changes because they will not make a difference. They have not on the boys side

Who cares kids are still gonna be playing soccer that what matters at the end of the day.kids on the field playing soccer.

Kids care, most of them would prefer not to have a new coach and new teammates. I agree with you that in the end it will be fine. But let's get the final communications out so everyone fully understands it. Communication has been extremely poor on this and that makes people and kids anxious.

Anonymous said...

Are leagues allowed to offer 9v9 and 11v11 next year for players born in 2004? Offering 9v9 as an option for one year would help clubs form teams while everyone transitions to the new age groups and would solve the issue for players born from Aug to Dec 2004.

Leagues have to decide how to implement the age group changes well before tryouts in the spring which means that now is the time to speak up if you have a concern.

I don't see anything in the new rules that would prevent a 9v9 leage at U13, which in the 2016/17 season will be the 2004 age group.

Anonymous said...

yes it is quiet. It is the off season. What I wonder is if there is any player movement starting to happen ahead of birth year teams coming in to play? Have clubs come out yet and officially said what they are doing? strict birth year teams or allowing teams to stay together and play to the oldest birth year? We are waiting to hear from our club. The lack of decision is weighing on everyone whether they have the older or younger girls on the team

Anonymous said...

Some people will panic & leave midseason then to only realize they may have to move again because the team they went to will look different in the Fall. There will be a lot of movement which will hurt a lot of teams & some will benefit. Should be interesting mixing crazy parents with coaches who don't have a clue.

Anonymous said...

8:28 you are right. That is what will make this tryout season so hard to judge. No one will really know what any team will look like for next year. For the 03's currently playing u12, they will be thrust into tougher competition playing with the older 03's who have been playing u13 already and are accustomed to the higher level of play. For the 04's playing u12 and especially for those playing 11v11, for many it will be a step back to play 04 because they will now be combined with the u11 04's, and none of them have played 11v11, not to mention the level of u11 play is not as good as the level of u12 play. The way I see it, the older girls on their current teams (who will become the younger girls on their birth year teams) get the much better end of things because they will get the much better challenge- who cares if they are no longer the strongeest player on the team, now they get to play against even better girls. The younger girls on the teams do not get this benefit from the birth year change.

Anonymous said...

Our club is going birth year... They have already had a couple u12 2003's attend the u13 practices to get a feel for things.
The highest level teams will be birth year with the exception of 1 or 2 standout players may be allowed to play up.

Surprised to hear that as US Club requires it's clubs to allow players to play up. EDP is made up of clubs. My older daughters team split is 33/63 split 03/04. Younger ones team has similar split which is surprising. As with many, I have one kid who will benefit at first and one who will not. Hardest thing for the older one is having to leave most of her teammates and probably the coach as well. It is what is, you have to make the best of it.

Why wouldn't edp allow playing up? They have never not allowed it before. In fact they allow whole teams to play up right now- PDA Lyon comes to mind. where did you get that information?

Anonymous said...

I agree that sounds like BS on EDP. All the PDA teams at U11 played up as well.

Anonymous said...

It does make sense as U.S. Soccer is keeping kids age appropriate in ODP and appears to follow the U.S. Soccer mandates that EDP is so eager to follow and for US soccer to follow players. However, the U.S. Mandate does seem to discuss that playing up is allowed which contradicts some of their ideas on why the age change occurrence is happening in the first place. Everything appears to be rumors and speculation at this point anyways. Changes are coming but I doubt anyone truly knows what any specific league is doing yet.

Anonymous said...

You're right that decisions haven't been made yet (publicly anyway) but it would go against common sense if players weren't allowed to play up. Teams could be forced to fold as a result if they cannot attract enough new players. Smaller clubs will be more impacted by a rule saying no one can play up. Are there currently any leagues in this country that don't allow playing up at all? I cannot imagine how such a rule would make sense

Anonymous said...

The birth-year registration initiative will not cause the dissolution of age-group based teams that already play together, but will rather give players the opportunity to ‘play up’ with older age-groups.


That is off EDP website so people saying you can't play up are wrong

A lot is gonna change all we can do is adapt to the situation kids will get to play with different kids now. Sucks for teams that have been together but the kids will move past it and keep playing soccer. Will be a major shift in team at the top cause of this change.

Voorhees has a few 03s and they will have trouble getting kids to fill roster. This is the year the break off and join a club with core group of girls.

Speaking of summer, what's everybody doing for winter training? Indoor league, futsol, speed/agility, or just enjoying time off?

Anonymous said...

For Winter training we are training 1 day per week and playing in 7v7 indoor league 1 day per week beginning in January. Had December off to recharge. -- Town-based travel team ... Players need some time off to recharge the interest, but need to keep building their skills so they don't take a step backwards in their development.

Starting to hear talk that a lot of teams will be staying together and playing to the oldest birth year instead of breaking apart and creating new teams that are all in the same birth year. Anyone else hearing this, and any thoughts on it? I think it's great to keep girls together who have been together for 5 years. So what if they are a little less competitive.

Anonymous said...

I guess I know all the big clubs r going to birth year and all the teams will follow after they realize they can't compete with the older girls. Nobody wants to pay 1500 a year to loose just saying

If a current top u12 team is made up of mostly 03s they will not be as good against the older 03s that are now playing u13 anyway. Maybe it's about challenging the girls instead of winning at all costs.

Anonymous said...

I understand the point but after awhile loosing get old for some parents. They start ? What is going on where they are at I seen it before. Who is to say is club just lets everyone play up..

Anonymous said...

It certainly seems like a nice thought to keep a team that's been playing X number of years together and "play up" in the new birth year calendar, but sentiment aside, it all boils down to numbers. Any U12 academy/club team with a descent draw and/or multiple teams per age group can easily reshuffle players, or field new players, to reform solid and true '03 and '04 teams. It's the smaller U12 club/town teams who do not feel they can stay competitive with the younger U11 '04s that will feel pressured to play up. Either scenario, players, parents, and coaches will have to adjust.

With or without birth year cut off, players will play up, rosters will change, teams will move to other clubs......after one or two seasons under this new system, everyone will be adjusted and all will be back to normal in soccerland.

My kid trains 4 days a week and will be playing futsal on Sundays. It's a lot, but I think you have to do that. The kid needs to make the decision though.

Are these prelimiary flights for EDP? The top flights are terrible. Each has a few strong teams and a few significantly weaker teams. I can see why Lyon wouldn't play u12. I assume they will be playing in the top flight of u13 having won all of their games by a landslide in the second flight in the fall.

Anonymous said...

I’m assuming those flights are still a work in progress. EDP has released preliminary divisions in past seasons only to rearrange a handful of teams prior to the start of the season. A few team placements seem a little odd to me. Also, how do you have a 9v9 2nd division with double the flight value of two 9v9 1st divisions?

Anonymous said...

its just a draft. There will be lots of movement. Already starting to see corrections.

Anonymous said...

the accepted team list for Jeff Cup is posted and it is quite an impressive list. It will be interesting to see how they flight the teams. It will be a very good test for teams from this area

Anonymous said...

All the usual suspects at Jeff Cup. Flighting will be difficult and most of the teams that see each other on a regular basis may end up going against each other again. Top flights could look a lot like EDP.

Any thoughts on odp ecnl for d1 scholarships my daughter is in a future ecnl club .

Anonymous said...

Way to early to be looking at D1 scholarships buddy....you are on ecnl team now doesn't mean you will be after try-outs. Is your daughter a 03/04..D1 is hard to make and they are to young to tell right now most girls haven't hit puberty yet..wait till they are in high school.

Anonymous said...

Is your kid on PDA or Matchfit they are only ecnl clubs in NJ..if your on PDA north ecnl I could see D1 players at that club...if your on match fit haven't seen much talent on either of there teams that could go D1 maybe D3 at best.

Anonymous said...

Now, now, parents (and coaches); this is the U12 blog. Stop trying to play-up to the level of the U14 blog. You need to develop a lesser sense of maturity before you are ready to blog like a true U14 parent.

Anonymous said...

That is ridiculous. You are likely going to spend more to play for a match fit or pda that what a scholarship is worth anyways. And the parents that have their kids on these teams are the parents that wouldn't be in dire need of a scholarship anyways. Just another class of parents that believe the hype.

Anonymous said...

Very hard to look at a U12 roster and predict college recruitment. Here is a guarantee, both MFA and PDA will have many D1 players among the kids in 2003/2004 when all is said and done. Will they be off the current rosters, hard to predict? PDA obviously has a head start as they almost always do. Plus huge changes coming in the next year, not just age and a girls DA, but the club landscape is likely to see some significant change as well.

Anonymous said...

it is pointless to be thinking about college recruitment at tis age. So much can and will change over the next few years

Anonymous said...

The barons made the announcement they are going to the birth year change next year and all there girls will be playing in there age group not playing teams up

Anonymous said...

Because the Barons have enough in there player pool to achieve a successful teams due to the age change. Same goes with PDA/Match Fit/SDFC etc. Don't you parents get at this age it's a clubs player pool the determines how successful a team will be later down the line. And many of you can stop thinking about D1 college because it's a less than 10% of girls that only end up playing college anyway. 233 D1 schools avg. of 600+ incoming freshman players out of the hundreds of thousands of girls the graduate playing in HS. Just worry about development right now.

EDP is doing a nice job refining the divisions for the spring.

Will the girl's DA be funded in any way or will the costs be very high to the player?

Anonymous said...

Nice to see PDA Lyon stop beating up on inferior U13 teams and face some real competition by going to Jeff Cup. Of course, PDA clubs were given a discount to attend so the tournament would be more competitive. Now we'll see how good or not the team really is.

Anonymous said...

Interesting observation, over the past year PDA Lyon is 2-3-2 against teams that are not from NJ. So are they receiving a discount as bait for the big cats.

I don't see how the men's DA has shown any results that would lead to replicating the program on the women's side.

Anonymous said...

It has produced a few professional players. But the best men's national team players seem to come from experience playing professionally abroad.

Confusing thing is where are these professional female players going to get opportunities to play? Where can earn enough playing to live on?

Anonymous said...

10.33 they are the only team from jersey that can play with the big cats. The one team they played to overtime beat another nj club 7-0. Pda is one of the "big cats". So stop the jealousy now. Your club will never be one. That's the reality.
