Organization is important. Experience is important.Continuity is important. PDA 99 has a coach that started PDA so 19 years at this level. The 00 Coach not as long but with PDA 5 years and and an A license. 01 Coach just 3 at PDA but a multiple state champ winner in high school soccer. 02 Coach is the head coach at RU and been at PDA 14 years. The O3 Coach at PDA over a decade. The 04 coach Sal so 19 years from the start. Another thing is these guys are not coaching 2 or 3 teams(The 00 coach does the 05's but its not his first responsibility. So just having 1 team, being experienced like say 10-20 years at one club, Continuity -04's same guy for 6 years, 03 for 7 years, 99's for 11 years and the reputation that keeps bringing them from all over. I'm sure Cedar Stars, MFA, SJE have lots of talented people but they don't have all the ingredients to compete at all ages.

Serious question for anyone associated with SDFC. What are you guys doing for the fall? Are you staying, leaving as a team, or just breaking up? Just wondering.

Anonymous said...

@ 6:58 why are you asking? Are you just curious or interested in the team? If you are interested in the team, I would recommend reaching out to the coach instead of listening to anonymous posters who may not even be from the team giving you answers that may or may not be true.

Anonymous said...

@6.58 SDFC sticking together, girls enjoying and well-liked coach. We have been told adding some players as have small squad, some good players have come training so far. As above poster, anything more detailed than that would reach out to coach.

Anonymous said...

Does it matter what team a player came from when looking for a new team? For example, If a coach is selecting one of two players of similar skill set - would the coach consider the teams the player played on in the past?

Would a coach second guess taking a player that looked good in tryouts cause they came from a less competitive team?

Anonymous said...

No they would take the player that best fits with the existing team and has a similar style as the rest of the players on the team. Sometime coaches are only looking for certian position at try outs to fill gaps in the team. Like PDA north Sjeb any of the big name clubs they are only looking for a few spots. If you don't crack there top 6 to 7 they might pass on you. Just the nature of the beast.

Anonymous said...

no



but a player from a lesser team may go unnoticed if she does not doing something to GET noticed at the tryout.

In other words - with no big team history coming in the coaches need to have their eyes opened by something your daughter does at the session.

Just going there and playing solid soccer may not suffice.


Hope this helps - and good luck

Anonymous said...

If there is a specific team you r looking at contact the coach and go to a practice. This way the coach can get a good look at your kid and how she measures up to the existing team. Try outs r tuff when there r 60+ Kids on the field to get noticed cause everyone is doing me ball to impress the coaches cause that is what happens at try outs kids r trying to stand out.

What happened with Cedar Stars/TSF Cup game? It's says the game was halted by ref with 15 minutes left in game and must be replayed in its entirety. Weather? Was there any score when it was stopped?

Anonymous said...

6:49 The score was 0-0 when the game was stopped due to poor field conditions. Wouldn't the teams go to OT and then penalties? Where is the rule that allows the game to be replayed in it's entirety.

Poor field conditions? So the field was fine the first 50 minutes of the game and now its not? What a joke. Go to PK's and be done with it.

That was the correct thing to do if it happened that way. You can't go directly to pks if the full game isn't played. If he deemed the field unplayable, it was correct to call a replay. It sucks they couldn't look at the forecast and see they weren't going to get the game in.

Daughters friend plays for Cedar Stars, said the ball was stopping in puddles on the turf, rained all day.

Anonymous said...

9:48

The game was on turf? not grass? That changes everything. If the game was on turf and play was started, it shouldn't have been stopped unless there was lightening.

Anonymous said...

If the referee deems the field unsafe they will call the game. If the turf was holding water as the one poster mentioned, the ref will call the game regardless of the score or whether its turf or grass. Safety first.

Anonymous said...

There's no logic from the ref then. So a wet slippery field in normal rain is safe but small puddles that actually slow the game down is unsafe? Why do teams play in the snow then? No logic at all in stopping that game - unless the home team was worried about losing in pks to an inferior team and hounded the ref to stop it.

Anonymous said...

8:18 No one who was there would question the referee's decision to stop the game. They might question why the game was played or was not stopped at half time. There is a specific rule on the NJ State Cup website (F.1) "Games terminated after the first half is completed will be considered a finished game and the score will stand." There is another rule that says when games finish in a tie you go to OT and then penalty kicks. That would make sense here since the game was about over and the teams would just be finishing things as if the game had continued, seems fair to both teams and practical since they only have 4 days to get a result.

Is there some other rule that allows the game to be replayed.

The home team hounded the ref? That is what your sad paranoid ass is suggesting? You are a complete toolbag. Paranoid much.

I 2nd the Liverpool situation and his current IG situation. He has a habit of BS-ing parents. He will offer things on paper, families pay, he takes things away then doesn't inform families and doesn't offer a refund on what he took away. Comes up with all sorts of excuses for doing it when a few parents do figure it out. He should be ashamed of himself. The fact he is doing this to a handful of kids on the team that are really good, sucks even more. He doesn't deserve anyone's kids to train or coach. Funny thing is he's so worried about people talking negative about him ahaha, I wonder why! People have the right to know what he's doing. STAY AWAY!

Anonymous said...

2:19 I'm really shocked and sorry to hear that about Barry. My daughter trained with Barry when she was younger and he was great .
Hearing he is acting like that is very disappointing .
Did the parents ask for a refund and were refused ?

Anonymous said...

It's my understanding someone asked for a refund and he claimed prices increased that was his excuse. He may get over on families that don't know any better but a few parents are holding on to their last payment. It comes down to the ole mighty dollar anymore if you have ever read all the crap on the u14 blog. And if he ever reads this I hope he sits back and thinks about the non sense he is causing himself and others and it is true what people are saying so he can't cry or feel attacked. The truth is the truth and facts are facts. No one is dragging his "good" name through the mud but him. He also needs to stop talking about money issues with the kids.

Straight from The NJ Cup website - pay close attention to #2:

F. MISC. REGULATIONS
1. Inclement weather - In case of severe weather that begins after the start of play, Cup officials in consultation with referees may reduce the length, postpone, conclude, reschedule, relocate or cancel any game. Games terminated after the first half is completed will be considered a finished game and the score will stand. Games terminated during the first half will be considered a 1-1 tie regardless of the current score.
2. Protests - There are no protests. Cup officials reserve the right to decide all matters pertaining to the Cup and Cup rules and regulations. The judgment of the Cup Director is final.

9:40 you can't be that ignorant can you?

If the ref made a bad call during the first half that benefited STA and PDA protested because it was unfair to them, should the game be replayed as well? It's a never ending circle. It sucks but wrong decisions are made by refs all the time, by not accepting defeat, you just taught your little Suzy a terrible lesson - that if she complains hard enough, she'll get her way. Great job mommy/daddy!

I give it a one thumb up! Didn't make her first choice but very excited to join her second choice!

STA - PDA game was not a judgement call by the ref - that was appealed - it was black and white missed rule call. PK rules state they are FIFA rules, and the ref disallowed a goal without a retake not because of unsportmanship. Blatant rule call blown. That is why they were retaken.

Curious what everyone is thinking about DA at this age (2004)? CSA vs NYCSC vs PDA, the whole concept in general.

Anonymous said...

CSA??? Come on! DA will take time and doesn't mean a thing at this age? But PDA will be the power house on the girls side. They always have been and between DA and ECNL they have it all. CSA doesn't even have a successful girls program and is hoping to bring together decent teams from tryouts??? PDA doesn't even have to look outside their own program to build these teams and eventually the best players will end up at PDA. How does anyone think CSA will be successful on the Girls DA side when they have never been proven successful on the boys side. Red Bulls for the boys and PDA for the girls. Always has been always will be!!!! Their programs are run the right way with great coaching that stick around for the long hall! Don't waste your time or money at CSA. Other local programs will get you further then CSA!

GDA needs to maintain a level of super selectivity to achieve the objective of developing world class players. Tryouts for GDA should be invite only, the number of GDA programs kept to a minimum, and players should be able to billet so they can live and go to school near the facility.

Nycfc made a smart move by deciding to run a GDA. Lots of families have boys and girls involved in the sport and appreciate nycfc's involvement in the girl's game.

No comment on the boys Red Bulls? Like I said its just facts! Many players from all levels of NJ soccer have been successful. I'm just sick of listening to not knowledgeable people on this blog trying to convince themselves and everyone else that their daughters are the best because they make "CSA" and most likely played politics to make that happen. You deal with the devil you will get burnt. If your daughter is that talented and that committed to the game of soccer she can play wherever makes her happy now and by the age of 16 an organization like PDA will add her if she is that talented. Just make sure you have a great trainer wherever you are and stop wasting your money and burning your daughter out at a young age!

2:49 - The conversation on this blog was about GDA which is supposed to be about finding and developing super elite soccer players throughout the U.S. PDA is the only club in NJ that has super elite girls teams at every age group and does so year after year. My daughter does not play at PDA but anytime they've beaten a PDA team it has meant something. It remains to be seen whether CSA will ever challenge PDA. CSA has no proven track record for developing super elite talent and bought their way in to GDA. It will be 10 years before we know whether CSA can deliver at the super elite level or is just a big club with a lot of very good teams. I am not going to knock them for trying.

Agreed, Soccer, like most elite sports in the US, has a pay to play model. Finances is an area where CSA has an advantage but only because a wealthy club owner is covering the costs. US Soccer is not doing nearly enough to address the costs of youth soccer.

CSA is a Money grab. The Mens devision does not have one competitive team. The women's teams are not looking very good. I asked as many parents at the second tryouts who the coaches were going to be. Not one knew. Not ONE. I will not just blindly give my daughters development or my money to a club that can't even tell you who their coaches are going to be. I looked on their web page, no coach has been with the club for more than 10 months. Says something when you can't keep your coaches. PDA, PDA south, SJEB and even NJX are better clubs.

Except San Diego Surf is a middle of the road GDA team. They didnt do well at Surf Cup against other good GDA teams (0:4 and 2:5). In order for the very good SDFC team to go to the next level - they should consider GDA, or find higher level competition in the region. They have a good coach - they know where they need to go next.

Wonder what was going through her head when her team tied that 2-0 loser. Probably that the game didn't matter so why try. The 3-1 loss in the final for SDFC against such a good Surf team is very respectable. More than I can say for that mom. Bet she blew a gasket when it was tied at halftime.

I can see why you would think it's a Surf mom, but I think it's just someone who spends a lot of time on a youth message board. Her daughter is likely on another California team that failed to get past Surf, and now SDFC's performance in game 1 somehow proves that all the teams in the the regional league are better than every other team in the nation. Because that's how it works.

Just look at the difference in YSR and gotsoccer credibility - you can have to look in the mirror sometimes and ask yourself if perhaps the entire Region 1 is not on par with Cali/Texas at this age group - and I do believe that SDFC is the top echelon of Region 1 at this point in time.

The post looks like it was saying that the SoCal person is looking at GS points as a determining factor for how good teams are - it wasn't saying that GS is the be all end all.

1 - If you're so worried about what's said on the SoCal boards, then why make the original post complaining about what they are posting?

2 - SDFC is not the top echelon of Region I. Accept it and move on.

3 - You aren't the God of youth soccer forums so stop acting it. People can and will post in whatever forum they want to. If you don't like it, then don't look.

Herndon in the top 10? Really? How did they do in ERL? Regionals? Did they make National League?

Top ten per youth soccer rankings

Sdfc is going to get crushed in the National league. This is just a new flavor of Kool Aid the coach is serving up. So now they will pay more travel expenses to get beat. And looking at the competition it looks like all the left overs that couldn't make ecnl or da...

Does it bother anyone else that both girls in the blog picture have their eyes closed while heading the ball?

Kind of a natural body reaction but I get your point. I actually noticed the girl in the blue shirt committing a clear foul with her forearm buried in the other girl's back.

First surprise of the season. Barons beat South Shore in Spirit United final. that's a solid win for them.

why is it a surprise? What's the difference between a win and a solid win?

Liverpool had a solid weekend.

Because most people would expect SS to beat the Barons. It's a win that you can't say, "well they beat a crappy team". They beat a very well respected team in the region. Do you understand now, or do you need further clarification?

Is it your opinion the Barons have a less respected reputation in the region, so much so, a win against a respected team is a big deal?

With a one goal differential, a little clarification on the difference between a "win" vs a "solid win" ????

I get it. You are stating Barons has a hollow victories reputation.

That makes your post a bit of a compliment and a dig.

Looks like Spirit was missing some talented teams compared to last year.

I get it, you're the kid who got picked last in sports as a tyke so you find solace in over-dissecting things said on a blog. Run along now and leave the commentary to the adults who actually understand the sport.

You come on here and over analyze my original comment obviously trying to stir things up and when you get exposed, you whine. So sad

Back to mommy's basement junior.

My daughter has played it of good teams in the area, SJEB beating South Shore is a bit of a surprise. Not saying SJEB is a bad team, but South Shore was an elite team and beating them is a good win.

Thank you! That's all I was trying to say. I wasn't trying to start any problems. Sad that someone had to try and stir things up. You can't even compliment a team anymore.

All this great win conversation is great- but that Liverpool team in setting marks in futility. Liverpool rocks!

Liverpool u14 team ????? Never heard of them .

Why wouldn't SJEB's top team be entered into the EDP open cup?

Anonymous said...

They aren't. But even if they were, why would that matter?

@1:28 i'm thinking they are probably a top team in NJ. They seemed to have improved a bit from last year. They could give SDFC a better game this year. Should I keep giving reasons?

Who knows, maybe they got smart and realized it's a joke of a "tournament" that does nothing but cram up a team's schedule.
