What are all of the teams doing to prepare for the approaching season (which feels like it is starting so early...geez lol)? Are your teams doing camps? Have you started training? Any teams doing a preseason tourney?

LISC, FC Fury and NYCFC schedules are posted on the US Soccer DA website. The link is on the left of this post in the USSDA Content Island. However when you type in Albertson Fury nothing comes up. Very strange.

USDA sets the schedule, not the clubs. It's been posted on the USDA site for awhile now. If you're going to get uptight about travel you're in the wrong league. Stay home and save your money.

Most games are scheduled, just these NY slackers. Some of us have to plan, for work and school, etc. So, no, I don't like to leave [****] for the last minute and have a schedule that needs to be laid out. It have to coordinate many projects and personnel for various entities, so where I am and when is a part of that.

Not concerned about the travel, but wanted it scheduled out because, well, it's what I do.

more of the same with Fury/Alby! All that money you all spend and you can't get one person to coordinate times and schedules? maybe its because they are spending so much energy still trying to field teams. When will people learn - you don't always get what you pay for

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 08/10/18 02:00 PM

So, in other words, you don't know when they will catch up and get their schedules in.

Is it me because i do not see any games listed for Albertson Fury FC On the DA website. Regarding fields FC Fury had difficulty with home fields last year and played all over Long Island should be interesting now with TWO clubs trying to register games for the same fields at the same time. Can not wait to see how the coaches handle covering all these games with a staff of maybe three coaches for two allegedly TOP level DA programs (LOL).

Guess I'm late to the table here, But we now have 4 clubs competing in DA in this area? Oh boy. Our player pool is so thin as it is. How does Alby lose ECNL but gain DA? Is there a whole other thread I'm missing here? Where could they have possibly brought players in from?

Wasn't PR building his own facility/fields? I thought awhile back they had made that announcement. I believe when they started promoting their "exceptional" DA program. What happened to that? I think it was supposed to be in Kings Park. Seriously, someone needs to be asking for receipts here because I don't understand how they are justifying all of their costs for training when they have nothing to really offer expect a name and glory days past. Can't even get schedules done and they are 3 weeks from their first game. smh.

Headline from tonight: USA fails historically at Under-20 Women's World Cup

These would be girls who played in the vaunted ECNL.

So for those wondering why USSF took over the top level of girls soccer here is the reason. US Club’s ECML just wasn’t cutting it despite their claims.

YEs improvements need to be made and the US has relived on our early lead in women' soccer for too long. Other countries have caught up.. But 1) USSF is responsible for player selection, training and coaching. They are not entirely blame free. 2) GDA isn't going to fix it. Ask the men's NT.

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 08/14/18 12:26 PM

How many men's players have a DA background (I don't know the answer). Many during the last cycle came from overseas.

USSF is responsible for player selection and coaching, but not the training. If players don't want to be part of the program, then that's outside the USSF control. Can't come in at the last minute and make changes. That's on the clubs they represented, and have been representing for last several years before GDA even existed.

great. in 4 years maybe they'll have replicated that amazing success your USA men have realized, and completely screwed up both your men AND womens's programs. Teams lose The U20s lost to Japan who have come along strong. The US cant be so full of itself to think it will always be at the very top , especially at a sport that is not engrained in their culture. Soccer is the sport your kids play as part of your pay to play structure when they are 5 years old. and it just continues and parents buy into it, and years later you're paying $3500 a year tuition and $8000 a year in other expenses in chasing a dream of WNT or D1 whatever. Just look at your men's program. Is that what you really want to replicate? Oh, they'll do it better this time around with the women who they do not hold as equals, don't pay nearly as much and force to play on turf instead of grass?

Stop being a sheep and just going to the ringing bell.

There is more than enough talent in the NYC and LI area to form five sets of GDA teams. But only if those five sets of teams actually grabbed all the talented players in the area. That is precisely why USSF is making it their mission in life to knock NPL and ECNL down a few pegs by doing things like stuffing the NT's with almost exclusively GDA players.

Yes, that is true in content. As the head of soccer in the country, they want to do it their way. Agree with them or not, that is what they are doing. They want to be the pyramid top and are shaping the conversation to their benefit.

Everyone is certainly welcome to go in another direction.

Their real mission is to flood all corners of the country with a presence, so they can get the hidden gems we always hear are out there. It's up to the other clubs and leagues to buy into that, or compete with it.

The problem lies with the fact that the majority of players have a goal of playing in college as their goal, not playing for the NT. Until the GDA maintains some real level of minimum players standards and holds clubs involved to equal standards it will not work. When will US soccer pony up some money to encourage the top players to train? Pay for play is not a workable foundation to work off. We all know this is the truth yet refuse to address it.

The goal of almost every kid tops out at college. It's not an either-or scenario. They want to get the best players and want the other leagues to pass them off. The other leagues don't want to. So, they are filling where they can until another solution comes up.

Where does this money come from?

The other issue is to fill every corner you have to take on some garbage clubs and suboptimal talent. There just aren't enough high quality clubs out there or talent to fill them all - especially when ECNL competes so strongly. Just look at some of the clubs in GDA in the NE. They really shouldn't be in the system. Some BDA clubs also. If USSF really only cared about the top 5% they never would have created another national league. They would have done something much smaller and better suited to the nation's elite players. They chose to go big, trying to push ECNL out in the process.

No one should ever post the name of a child. ( please don’t be a idiot suggesting that )
Of course there are weak teams and players. Serious? Every team in every league
Has 4-5 A players. All these league and clubs are trying to sell us that they
Are the only one and best and only path for stardom. But the talent is just to spread out.

Until then we all just write our checks and talk a big game like our Club has better
Players and Trainers.

This will take 4-5 years for the market to work itself out. Think about 5 yrs ago and how
Simple the choices were. Now, it seems like there is a new league and acronym created
Every season...Because we chase it.

Honestly, don’t think there is much confusion about it at all. If your child truly loves soccer, and is very dedicated, find a GDA club. As someone mentioned before, ECNL is for the best, GDA is for the best of the best...

I see it even simpler... If your kid's goal is to play in college (except top 20 or whatever you think is top) ECNL is good as it gets. High School in the fall, a couple of tournaments by Thanksgiving, winter training, early spring training and a crazy two months schedule of games in the spring. Your college competition is in the same boat so all is good, you really don't have to be at the top of the pyramid with your primary focus of getting through college academically.

For the top .01% who have top college program, national team, or professional aspirations, the DA is for you; you the practice and intensity plus some.
What I don't see with the DA is the need for 70 clubs or 6500 players involved in the league when the top age group each year needs maybe 100 top players.

Meanwhile, the top YNT player in my kid's age group plays for an NPL club and of the kids that got called to NT camp this past year from this area, 2-3 played GDA, I think 2 played ECNL and another NPL'er who is a year younger got a call up to camp with kids mostly a year older.

Exactly and the morons are missing the point. The DA teams are not
Attracting the top talent and will take walk ons this weekend if you are interested. 4-5 A Girls per team. Maybe it works 3-5 yrs
Out or maybe not. ECNL, NPL, and all the others also have 4-5 A players per team and again there is no Elite Club or Team on LI that gets all the A players. 5b

Where will your child be in 3yrs Or is LI going to be the entire WNT, LOL.

Good luck.

There are clubs and players that don't belong in what is supposed to be the nation's top league. Fact.


Please give us the names of the players you consider inferior, you won’t because you are a coward. Fact.


Go watch some games this fall and not all at the top 1/3 of the teams. Do a fair sampling and tell us all how the best of the best is on the field (or sitting on the bench because of stupid sub rules).

making up numbers as you go along. be specific about clubs, age groups. for NT camps im sure we had 3 from PDA U14, 2 NYCFC, 1 FURY. 1 WC, 1 stallions and 2 SSS (NPL - also went to NT duty). based on this - more NPL kids went to NT than ECNL.

there is a big misconception here. If they are attracting 70 pct of the top talent then surely the rest is irrelevant? You figure out who the top level players are, whatever number you think are that. then tell me what pct are in the GDA. If its 50 pct or greater, then they are off to a great start. Forget judging them on how they make up the bottom of the roster. Its irrelevant.

DA new substitution laws:
GU15 & 16/17 now allowing 7 substitutions where it was 5 prior. Boys will continue with 5 in that age group. Both will still only have 3 moments
U12 unlimited substitutions on the fly without any moments.
U13 & U14 unlimited substitutions but still only allowed 3 moments.
Wonder if this will change anything on the girls side. Seems like part of the issue for many players was the substitution issues. The other part being no school ball.

We shall see.

It is absolutely the new rule for the girls. The document you have is for last season. You should probably read it before you comment any further.
Page 27. Section #2 Letter B

"For Boys and Girls U-15 Academy games and for Girls U-16/17 Academy games, there will a maximum of be seven (7) substitutions per game with no re-entry across three “moments”

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 08/22/18 06:49 PM

Only the GU 18/19 will have 5 subs on the girls side. 16/17 will have 7 subs.
They hope to keep enrollment higher.
The boys DA took a while to iron out as well. Its a work in progress.

Not sure. Time will tell. It just gives a coach that opportunity to play everyone who is rostered.
In high school there is unlimited subbing and half the time those coaches never sub yet everyone still wants to play.
I think they are still trying to work out all the kinks. I think rule changes will happen each year to try to improve the league.

All depends on the coach (does he value development over winning or vice versa?) and the talent. Some bench warmers are there for a reason. Sub rules are a minor deterent to GDA compared to the bigger picture things like the time, cost, travel and the issue of HS play.

Everyone is considered a "Developmental Player" because its called the "Development Academy"

If you mean discovery player that is specific to ECNL.

If you mean part time player here is a link to that info.

Could be this ridiculous "part time player" nonsense. Basically, girl plays HS soccer, can't play DA thru Nov, then comes back to their DA team. So parents and players who have committed their time from Day 1 with their DA team will get bumped when the HS players are ready to return.
It's stupid and will absolutely cause issues with parents and players. "Hey, keep my spot warm, I'll be back in a few months".

You obviously don't understand what a part time player is. It is not for high school play. It is for a player who would not otherwise see a lot of playing time in the DA to still develop as a player. She is allowed to play up to 12 games on the DA team and attend practices, HOWEVER it also allows her to play with an affiliate club. For instance, Morgan is a PT player on the FURY FC. Morgan is not getting a lot of playing time during the DA games if any. FURY FC can roster her as a PT player and now she can play in games with her DA Team (up to 12 games or she has to be full time player) and with Albertson (not DA) so she can continue developing. A plan has to be put in place for her development and signed off on by US soccer.

To me this is a great way for young athletes to develop. Previously, U16/17 were only allowed 5 subs meaning at best, 2 rostered players would never even step foot on the pitch let alone give minutes to other players. So maybe one or two of those girls would become a PT player which is a fair way to go about this.

Last year, some teams took advantage of this and used it as a way to play school ball which it is not. I posted a link to the part time player policy. Its worth the read if you have strong opinions on the subject.

I hope I cleared that up for you.

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 08/24/18 07:23 PM

And to add to my previous statement regarding Part time player, what you may be referring to is a High School Waiver. AGAIN, here are the rules concerning that. You cannot just simply leave DA, play high school ball and come back. Some players were lying and doing this, and many wound up with injuries due to playing and practicing to much. Anyway, here it is again.

(1)Players who receive consideration or financial aid to attend a private high school based on their participation with the soccer team are eligible

(2)Although clubs are not limited to a specific number of waivers, the number is naturally self-limiting to field a full team throughout the Academy season.

(3)Players registered with a Development DA Club will not be allowed to re-enter the program during the same season after participating in the high school season with their current or a different DA Club.

Could be this ridiculous "part time player" nonsense. Basically, girl plays HS soccer, can't play DA thru Nov, then comes back to their DA team. So parents and players who have committed their time from Day 1 with their DA team will get bumped when the HS players are ready to return.
It's stupid and will absolutely cause issues with parents and players. "Hey, keep my spot warm, I'll be back in a few months".


You obviously don't understand what a part time player is. It is not for high school play. It is for a player who would not otherwise see a lot of playing time in the DA to still develop as a player. She is allowed to play up to 12 games on the DA team and attend practices, HOWEVER it also allows her to play with an affiliate club. For instance, Morgan is a PT player on the FURY FC. Morgan is not getting a lot of playing time during the DA games if any. FURY FC can roster her as a PT player and now she can play in games with her DA Team (up to 12 games or she has to be full time player) and with Albertson (not DA) so she can continue developing. A plan has to be put in place for her development and signed off on by US soccer.

To me this is a great way for young athletes to develop. Previously, U16/17 were only allowed 5 subs meaning at best, 2 rostered players would never even step foot on the pitch let alone give minutes to other players. So maybe one or two of those girls would become a PT player which is a fair way to go about this.

Last year, some teams took advantage of this and used it as a way to play school ball which it is not. I posted a link to the part time player policy. Its worth the read if you have strong opinions on the subject.

I hope I cleared that up for you.

I do not understand how Morgan can play FC Fury and then play Albertson (not DA)? Albertson is playing in the DA league against DA teams so I am confused here.

If the player isn't good enough to make the initial cut will they ever make the A squad? Probably not. If the player is already at the club on the B team that's one thing; bring them up now and then for numbers or to see if they can hang on the A team. But some have A teams have PT's just as that, part timers. That's a money grab.

You obviously don't understand how this will work in reality. Book smart one thing, street smart another. The are no HS waivers other than for players getting financial aid to a private HS. So how do you get around that for players wantin to play HS? Make them a PT player. It's already happening to skirt the issue.

If you don't think GDA isn't in trouble, then you haven't looked at the U14 rosters yet. No one has more than 14 players in our area. That is combining 05 and 06's. I say this year is the end for a lot of clubs

I’m not sure if you looked at the GDA guidance. They are clear on the recommendation of less than 14 Full Time players. And 8-10 part time players. This way PT players can get playing time on other teams.

Additionally PT players can be pulled in from ‘affiliate’ clubs - but need to attend 1-2 practices a week with GDA team.

Contrast that with a traditional ECNL team of 22 players including 3 goalies. This kills development and players 12-22 see very little playing time

With this model, would a kid from a weak high school (able to make varsity as a freshman or sophomore)be better off playing DA as a pt or #12-14 FT on the depth chart than ECNL with high school?

Here is the rationale from US Soccer . I like the idea in theory, I know that parents of kids that were not invited to games, or would travel to play 20 minutes were dissatisfied with last year's approach of having 20 kids on a team. I like it for kids that play for an affiliate club as well. I don't see why WC kid would not play for NYCFC IF the clubs would officially become "affiliate clubs". Easy for mega clubs like Cedar Stars or Rush. Again, as others pointed out playing you can't play HS and be a PT player at the same time. That would have to come after the HS season and would probably be against the spirit of the guidelines

Part-Time (PT) player:
•Is on the game day roster of the team during certain games, but is not playing consistently and/or enough minutes in DA games (e.g. player #15 - 20).
•Can still be developing and/or has the potential to make an impact in the future.
•Is rostered in a DA club and receives playing time on a non-DA team within the club, or in an affiliate club to supplement their playing time as part of his/her individual development plan. An IDP includes a long-term season plan with a consistent environment and coaching staff.
•Must train at least 1x and ideally 2x per week with the DA club and 1-2x per week with the non-DA team for a total of 3-4x per week as part of their IDP.
•Can play a maximum of 12 DA games per season (regular season and events, including playoffs).

by looking the GDA club maps seems like there are some very weak clubs in there with exception of surf and pen fussion. NO powerhouses like pda fc stars conquered fire ECNL competition may be tougher.

IMO, Its not really an option for many players to become PT and US Soccer is not just handing out these positions easily. We are in a unique situation in NY with such a large player pool, that I doubt there will be many PT players and hardly any HS waivers in our area. I think this was to help states where they have a much smaller player pool.

To answer your question, I think playing as PT player in the DA, is far more beneficial then playing high school ball however, the DA has only been here for 2 seasons so its hard to really know whats "best". Its just a completely different mentality and training.

I would look at it this way. What results are you looking for? As a PT player, you continue to develop and train with quality trainers, you get to play competitive soccer in league play and you have something hard to work towards - becoming a full time player. You also get to train and play in your affiliate club which allows a player to decide...hey which of these teams is where I want to be.

To me, high school is a wonderful time of playing for your school and being with your friends, but as far as developmental soccer is concerned some kids are just not getting that quality training that they would otherwise get thru the US soccer program.

ECNL is just one season, like you said so those girls are encouraged to play HS ball and it seems that is what many want to do.

This program is so new, I'm perplexed by the amount of bickering and choosing of which is better with relatively little information to base that on.

Really it comes down to, what does your daughter want. Whatever it is, support that. Hope that helps.

Are you saying thhen that’s players 12-14 will still see significant playing time and not considered bench warmers keeping bench warm until a Pt player fully commits or they land a “transfer” from an affiliate or another club.


Perhaps I am reading this wrong, but it says "The maximum number of PT players is an average of 10 PT players per age group, averaged across the DA club from U-13 thru U-18/19;"

I take that to mean 10 players total per age group, not per team. But maybe I am wrong.

And to answer the question about affiliate clubs this is US Soccer take on it: "Support Clubs to establish collaborations with other Clubs in their community as they will have a greater chance to succeed over the long-term based on their shared efforts" I take that to mean like "It takes a Village" theory.

Everyone working together to make sure all players are developing and ideally that the top players are competing as one team. Isn't that what we want? Isn't that what everyone is complaining about. This is going to take time. But to suggest after one year that US Soccer and the DA are finished is naive at best.

All it would take is for college coaches to say "hey we are only attending DA games for D1 schools" for everyone to be fighting for spots on the team. Right now there are plenty of options to get in front of coaches, which is why there is so much talk about which league is better.

why would any parent/club owner want this? Multiple pathways suits everyone EXCEPT those who get PAID for developing the best talent. No one in the womens game in the USA does. Its a volume game, not a quality one.

Last year, I think US soccer was much more lenient and everyone was still learning including coaches and clubs. However, there was one club in particular that had many part time players and most of them got hurt or had so much wear and tear they couldn't finish the season on any team and their club came to games with no subs or barely fielding a team.

There is a reason they don't want you to play school ball. Its not about being mean or unfair, its because practicing 9 times a week with 5 games weekly is not good for a young person.

As a parent, allowing your kid to do that is just stupid.

If you really want to play high school ball so badly just do it and find an ECNL team that will take you. They only play one season and some tournaments.

Players caught playing on their HS team will forfeit their position on the team. Why risk it when you have other options.

Or, be a stud and just get added to the roster in November. Plenty of BDA clubs do this so don't think it won't happen in GDA either. There is an extensive add-on period, basically until April. It gives clubs a great deal of latitude.

Nope, and yes we lost, to some of the best teams, better than 98% of any ECNL teams.

FC albertson Fury games are all scheduled. Don't look under Albertson SC. Don't worry about the Fury teams. They will be fine. By next Fall the two Fury teams will be the top teams on the Island. Once people realize that DA is the top league and that LISC only has the lower age groups, the best players will end up at Fury. Then of course everyone will be spouting off that Fury didn't really develop them and Fury can't take credit for them. Some will be developed there and some will come there later. But eventually they will end up at Fury.

why does this matter? surely what you should be doing is looking at NYCFC players in college. Are they getting minutes? Are they playing on teams equivalent to their ability etc. Are they doing well? Do they look good relative to team,mmates?

That would be REAL analysis and an indicator IF these kids were coming out of the NYCFC program well equipped to play in College.

That takes effort and some real knowledge though. Much easier to just look at who won/lost right?

SMH ...No wonder Clubs take parents for a ride. Focus on the bigger issues and maybe you will stop looking at the stuff that really does not matter. If a club takes a C player and helps make her a B in college. or an A player and gets her into an A school playing A level soccer then they have done their job. As opposed to Clubs hoarding A/B players, winning club games and then watching said player sit on the bench in College because they have never been challenged or prepared for when they are not surrounded by talent or in a conference where the school they are at is not the best

Wake up people, i assume many of you are doing this for more than Club wins. If so ,think beyond the petty nonsense. If not, have at it

LISC, FC Fury and NYCFC schedules are posted on the US Soccer DA website. The link is on the left of this post in the USSDA Content Island. However when you type in Albertson Fury nothing comes up. Very strange.



Why is it that the Albertson fury rosters are not on the website at this late date. Am I missing something?



Where are any of the other clubs' rosters posted? Can't find them.

Also, there are lots of teams that don't have their schedules or rosters up that will be competing. So if you don't see something you are looking for its probably just not up yet.

I agree. I clicked on 10 random teams and only 2 had their full rosters / games up. People just want to stir the pot because they enjoy hating on teenage girls I guess.
Prob this dad has an ECNL kid, so he needs to come in here and be a keyboard warrior and prove his point that the DA sucks because rosters aren't up lol
Meanwhile, his kid's ECNL team doesn't even play in the fall and is being trained the next few months by Mr. Smith. The science teacher aka Coach.
Unless she is still in middle school in which case no one really cares.

100%. The ex-Alby dads now at the new ECNL club in Suffolk, so concerned about what his old club is doing, how his grass is uber-green, yada yada. Grow up and be happy with your 21 player squad.

Touchy huh the Fury GDA Suffolk U14 team has 13 players(12 field players) and the U15 team has 13 players(11 field players)

What exactly will happen when the unfortunate injuries happen?

And you want to claim Fury as a success?

You people seem so angry or something. That and it seems as if none of you have lives. Bashing clubs, teams , pre and teenage girls. My daughter is a very strong play45, in fact she has developed skills so quickly that it's amazing to watch. I love watching her and her team mates play and grow into strong players. I love when tbey play against other girls with the same passion and are competitive. Isn't this what most parents love ??? Who has the time to sit around all day trash talking back and forth with other parents who should only care about their daughter developing into a stronger player and being challanged at this age ??? I've seen crappy teams with a few players with amazing talent. I've seen strong teams with the majority of girls with talent. If your child is happy that's all that matters. Grow up for real

Ok just answer this question. When you get a girl with a sprained and another with a Bar Mitzvah to go to on the same weekend how will you be fielding your 11V11 team? You gonna pull the goalie for the game?

The better question is why do you care? If they do, then what? I wish the team bashing for our youth would just stop. There's too much of it going on on all of these sites. Lets redirect the focus of these forums.

Speaking of injuries, do you (everyone reading this) know the injury protocols of your club? Are they just supposed to follow the federation protocols? Does your team actively promote injury prevention?

Just worry about your daughter's team and if she is happy or not. You have no idea what is going on at other clubs, nor should you care much, unless you plan to go there. Otherwise stop worrying what others are doing

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 08/30/18 01:45 PM

the bank loans havent been approved yet, so rosters are not out. that survey that is up there on these forums is startling. some programs are 8 to 13k/ year. and thats excluding the miscellaneous ancillary costs.
how in the world could one expect to get your country's best athletes if such elite level programs cost these player's family 8 to 13000 year, and then another few grand in miscellaneous expenses let alone the parents having to travel and miss work to go to these prolonged events. USSF embraces the pay to play model and these clubs are making money hand over fist
and the academy kids arent getting scholarships or offers any bit earlier than those not in academy.
math doesnt add up.

If you think GDA is the same as NPL you are in the league, and probably with the wrong club. Our 02/03 team is as good as it gets, doubt they lose a game until Florida, and even then they will be tough to beat....

See above. NYCFC Daddy is the one who needs to keep his trap shut. Yes NYCFC is the best club in the area. But his incessant rants about how great they are and how great the league is not only tiresome but wrong. the league is flawed and outside the top three clubs the competition and training in the NE is shoddy. So glad this our last year of the minefield of youth soccer.

Just have to click the link for each team, other than the 14's, and delete the %20 in the web address bar. The link is broken for the U15's, U16/17's, and U18/19's. However, if you delete the "%20", you'll be able to see each roster.

I’m not going to pile-on Fury, they have some nice players, the parents, not so much...u19 moron (newbie) yelling like a fool, embarrassed for the other Fury parents. At this level and age that kind of behavior says a lot about them, a lot.

How about Albertson Fury games? Did the older team 18/19 have enough players or are the fury players crossing over to play? Scores?

Actually Oakwood will probably be more competition to NYCFC this season. Funny how both Fury and Albertson Fury ended up in the much weaker NE division. Boston left the division. The Atlantic division has Penn Fusion, Cedar Stars, and FC Virginia that all were very strong last year. Penn Fusion being the strongest team overall.

Like everyone has been saying, Fury losing girls to other programs is going to hurt the team. Funny thing is, people could have understood that if that Fury parent troll wasn't so nasty talking about the kids that left the team. I could say a lot more but I'll take the high road. But you know what they say about karma...…………..

BTW...$4300 + $800 (coaches stipends) = $5100

How is it that Albertson DA is getting away with having their players play school ball and fill in on other age groups since they where they are lacking players??

Hello,

Thank you for the email. But stop emailing us every day about every complaint you have. A girls DA player may not play in both environments simultaneously. If a DA player wants to play high school, they will need to leave the DA environment for the entirety of the High School season. If they want to then rejoin the Academy at the conclusion of the season, and their club will have the player back, they are eligible to rejoin.

Thanks,


U.S. Soccer Development Academy


They also said they wanted to know if this indeed is going on. Hmmmm????
Maybe we might just do that since we all know those kids will play school ball , play DA on another age group and then come back to play on age and our kids will then sit the bench all for being committed and loyal.

So who's gonna have the chutzpah to log the complaint to USSF? This is ridiculous, then we're supposed to welcome these players back with open arms? Oh, and are they paying full price or getting a break?

What complaint are you going to file? That the club is bringing in high school players after the season is over. The US Soccer academy said it is OK basically as long as the club welcomes them back. Albertson does need help and getting some players that are currently playing high school will be welcomed. Of course some girls will get a lot less playing time but it will be girls that really don't belong on DA anyway. If anyone is surprised that more talented players are allowed to get around the rules some, then you don't know how the game is played.

Let me be clear as you are not reading correctly or I failed to explain. Some girls are playing HS ball and playing DA as well during the fall season. They are being asked to fill in because some teams are short of players. That is prohibited by DA. Da clearly states you are allowed to return if a club accepts you back AFTER HS BALL is OVER!!!

Regarding HS:

- Technically players have to get waivers for HS play and it only applies to private school players who are getting $ to play. For public school is isn't allowed. All waivers have to be approved by the club and USSF.
- In reality, clubs can just not roster HS players for the fall then add them during the add-on period (which is practically the whole year). It's a huge loophole many clubs take advantage of
- Either way (if you're following the letter or spirit of the rules) you cannot do HS and DA simultaneously. Absolutely zero DA while your HS practicing and playing, all the way through playoffs if your team is in it

Clear enough?

Not OP, but think about it....hey I'm all for school sports, but unfortunately this is how the landscape is shaking out with DA. Now if you're child was playing DA from day 1, then a bunch of HS players come back in late October and jumped into your spot, wouldn't you be p!$$ed?
It's skirting the rules anyway you look at it. It's not fair (I get it, who cares about fair...)

yes, particularly if that club convinced you and your kid that she had to sacrifice high school soccer and DA was worth it. but on the side told other kids that they could play HS and come back after the season. If they then return and your kid gets no playing time then it was fraudulent behavior on the part of a club to entice you to come.

Not fair and not the spirit of the rules. (Life ain't fair, the rules aren't for everyone )

I will give you an example, [name removed] with 18/19 Fury team, she is listed on the roster, but she is playing HS at St Anthony’s this fall, so why should the other current Fury midfielders welcome her back in November??
Posted By: Anonymous

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 09/04/18 08:54 PM

Couple of things.

1) You can see on the Rosters who is a full time player and who is not. Almost every roster has all FT players with the exception of LISC and probably due to some players being younger than others and using the affiliate club to aid in development.

2) A club will be penalized if the reason a person is looking for a waiver is to play school ball.

3) Regardless of what the other poster said, I doubt a lot of players/clubs are risking it.

4) A club can only have a max of 10 Part Time players total.

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 09/04/18 09:49 PM

you think she cares if they welcome her back? you're in Academy because you're cut throat and walked away from other good quality programs because you were enticed by the USSF Academy promise of elitism and immediate entrance into the national team and D1 schools with bags of scholarship monies heaped your way. You walked from your high school programs thumbing your nose at them, and all the while tried to be nice saying how its only because she really needs a higher level of competition, better kids deserve better competitions. and now you're upset that the entity paid for with your tax dollars, the UNITED STATES soccer federation is unwilling to enforce the rules in a league it created which is hanging on by a thin thread.

I totally understand. There was another player listed on Albertson 16/17 who is playing HS ball at Oceanside and managed to play on Sunday on the 18/19 Albertson along with the others because Albertson doesn’t have enough players for their 18/19. Is that allowed? I don’t think so. Where is the Albertson 18/19 roster?

It's skirting the rules anyway you look at it. It's not fair (I get it, who cares about fair...)


if good enough its not an issue is it? So use it as motivation to make it impossible for them to take your spot.


Why? We can complain and get the same result.

But I thought GDA was all about "the training" and "development" and games didn't matter. At least that's what all the GDA faithful have been screaming for over a year now, whenever someone questions the level of competition with many, many 6+ goal wins. So, as long as your kid gets to train 4x a week, you don't get to complain if a HS playing stud returns and gets more PT in a game!

Not a GDA parent, but still follow all the happenings in the league (I have a 14 year old who may be interested eventually), are these folks talking about the kid who was the East POY & Best XI? Seriously? My guess would be the league itself gave her their blessing to go play at her *private* school, isn't that why waivers exist?
I doubt she or her family care much about what annonymous people post, but I for one applaud this kid for representing LI Soccer (both school & club) in such an outstanding manner! Good luck to her!

dont you understand that here is a tiny fraction of players for whom ANY club/league represents a chance to improve and build to a better level of play in College. The you have the vast majority for whom Club soccer IS AS GOOD AS ITS GOING TO GET - I nclude players AND parents.

this is the chance to be relevant, be in the papers, win games , travel etc.

For that reason alone, the guard it jealously. they dont want "better" players or training. they just want their kid on the field. They talk about wins and losses, but the quality of the games or opponent matter little as long as their kid is on the field.

this is the backdrop against which any academy for girls will operate. the ECNL is successful because it is the path of LEAST resistance. almost no rules, limited set up costs etc.

At FC Fury, on my child’s team, it is all about the training. Games are truly secondary. My child has been fortunate and played both games this season in entirety. If there is a game this season were she plays only half the game, I will completely understand. GDA is about the training first.

The DA is not for everyone, on many levels, and playing time has always been a big grip. If your child is only average, she will struggle for minutes, just like the boys. The typical GDA player is good to begin with, and pushes themself to be better. To accomplish that you have to fight for time, fight for a starting spot, and fight to stay fit, the latter spent outside your of team practice. Get it? It’s not for everyone. However, if you truly feel that your child is all of the above, and she continues to struggle for minutes, have her talk to her coach.

kids don't develop during games. They develop in practice and what they do on their own. The games are just a showcase of what they learned. Games are necessary and kids do need to learn how to play in a game. But if your kid is getting very little minutes maybe they are not DA quality kids

Why is it so hard to believe? NEFC (formerly BBA) is the top club in NE GDA, having finished 1st in the 16/17 AND 18/19 age groups and 2nd in the U15 last year. I know because that dad from NYCFC is always on here bragging, that people think they were the strongest club but in actuality they weren't. NEFC will only be even stronger this year after a successful debut, expect to see several double digit wins...

2 ties and 2 losses with a double digit negative goal differential against a club who was playing their weaker players based on playing a weak opponent is not competitive... It’s pitiful.

Players are guaranteed 25% starts throughout the year. Note that's starts, not actual time. At most age groups the subs are limited and game day rosters are limited to 18. Some players may travel hours and never get a minute of PT or just a few. Yes PT is earned U14+ and yes training is an important component BUT so are games. Kids getting token minutes aren't developing. They're making the club more profitable.

So NY goes 0-2-2 against NEFC, one of the few tops clubs in NE GDA, but because one team got slaughtered the club is terrible?

Age wise 6 are 01s and 1 an 00, and 11 are really U17s. What's up with that?

That's why PT get minutes outside of the main team.

In my experience you have teams with huge rosters, and lean ones. Ones that are lean, develop better, have better camaraderie, BUT they are the ones that bring PT players when needed, and pull-up best players to older age groups. Large roster teams are where kids end up competing against each other and have to fight to showcase themselves, as opposed to collaborate on the field with team mates. So, parents learn to be super nice to the coach, and pay money on the side for extra training with the said coach just to get few more minutes than the next kid. So, if you see a large roster and don't think your kid is a top 1-8 player: head for the exit. Probably not that different from your large ECNL club like MF where you have 21 field players and 3 goalies and players 9-24 see 15 minutes of play once every 2 weeks.

BOO HOO !! How much are you spending in the game of Life so you can drink the Albertson Kool-Aid for your daughter to travel all over playing soccer with no development and losing week after week? Life taught me if your team did poor in ECNL than the smart move would be NOT to move up to supposedly a higher and tougher league. But i guess your version of life says otherwise. See you in December when all your Albertson Fury teams will be 2-50-2, if they're lucky.

i would pull my teeth out if i had to drive all that way and my kid was getting 30 minutes a game.
Not because she deserves or doesn't deserve the mintues. thats the decision of the coach and that's his prerogative.
But be honest with the family when the come to tryouts. Just be honest and tell me where i truly stand in the lineup so i can decide if i should leave my existing team, ask my parents to give up so much money and so much of their free time, give up high school and so much more.

If only clubs and coa ches had that much respect for the families. YOu'd need them to see you as more than a walking checkbook and for 90% of the kids participating that is all they see.

Players leave clubs all the time where they don't feel repsecteor well taught. It is a business transaction. Player pays for the soccer instruction and if they are dissatisfied, they try a different product happens with any product or service. Clubs that can satisfy the customers will have a good business.

I agree, at NYCFC if a kid is not playing at least half the game, they are not cut out for GDA and should be elsewhere. But it would be unfair for a player to think that just because they wrote a check, they should get even minutes. While it is a pay to play environment in the strictest sense of the word, its a merit based environment. The coach doesn't favor one over the next, but simply puts the best product on the field to represent the club, the team, the coach, and the players.

Parents, the issue is 6 teams in such a small radius.
DA for the boys used to be something elite, special, high end. Now it seems like anyone can be on a team.
I was watching something on US soccer site about a girl who travels 2 hours to get to practice 4 days a week (not including games).
One team in the whole state. That is how it should be. Not 6 teams in such a small radius.

US soccer needs to step in here, stop thinking about the profits, and allow those players who TRULY are elite to stand out.
I agree with the poster who said it is about training, however, there is only so much a young athlete can emotionally handle and losing by 7 or 8 goals each week is hardly going to boost morale.
As adults we can see the potential, but for a 14 year old girl who is giving up school ball and a social life, well it can make things difficult.

And here we are bashing the kids to make the other parents jealous. Seem very petty.

Travelling 4 hours each day to get to practice (4 days a week is lunacy). That girl would be better served if she just used those 4 hours to practice on her own. Everyone is brainwashed to think that if you don't play with the top girls in the state that you cannot develop. True, You can't play with totally trash players and get to a high level of play but there are plenty of quality players close enough so you don't have to travel 4 hours everyday to get better. Much of a players development is on their own anyway when no one is training them.

Honesty is bad for their bottom line, hence, you'll never get it. The number one rule in youth soccer is it's a business. clubs look out for themselves, not your kid.

The standards have dropped here because of the water down player pool, and the rest of the country is not saturated like we are.
They mostly have one or two teams in the state, minus a few in the larger states. Its US soccer fault for allowing this to happen.
They took a program that once treated athletes like they are gearing up for the Olympics and made it so everyone wins a medal.
Sure, you can practice in your backyard, but you are missing the point. I am talking about the 1%.

No, bigger picture GDA (and BDA) are too big. There just isn't enough quality talent to fill rosters and make games consistently competitive. There aren't even enough quality trainers to go around and that is what DA is supposed to be about. Shrink down by at least 1/3, preferable at least 50%. Make it all about the talent - that is what is is supposed to be about but isn't currently. Have USSF start putting real $ into it as well so that non MLS clubs can offer more scholarships.

I agree, at NYCFC if a kid is not playing at least half the game, they are not cut out for GDA and should be elsewhere. But it would be unfair for a player to think that just because they wrote a check, they should get even minutes. While it is a pay to play environment in the strictest sense of the word, its a merit based environment. The coach doesn't favor one over the next, but simply puts the best product on the field to represent the club, the team, the coach, and the players.

Let me ask you this, using Alby as an example. If they're getting beat pretty badly every week, why not give those bench players more playing time over the starters? If the starters aren't lighting it up - why not go for true development and get the other players involved more. What could possibly happen, you're losing anyway?

Do you think that the bench players are going to suddenly develop and become good players because they got some game time action? What could happen is that the better players get less time and develop less in hopes that some sub with little talent will develop more. The better players should play more and the amount of playing time someone gets should be what they earned in practice. That is determine by their level of play, their fitness, their hard work etc.

One team in the whole state. That is how it should be. Not 6 teams in such a small radius.

US soccer needs to step in here, stop thinking about the profits, and allow those players who TRULY are elite to stand out.
I agree with the poster who said it is about training, however, there is only so much a young athlete can emotionally handle and losing by 7 or 8 goals each week is hardly going to boost morale.
As adults we can see the potential, but for a 14 year old girl who is giving up school ball and a social life, well it can make things difficult.

And here we are bashing the kids to make the other parents jealous. Seem very petty.


Travelling 4 hours each day to get to practice (4 days a week is lunacy). That girl would be better served if she just used those 4 hours to practice on her own. Everyone is brainwashed to think that if you don't play with the top girls in the state that you cannot develop. True, You can't play with totally trash players and get to a high level of play but there are plenty of quality players close enough so you don't have to travel 4 hours everyday to get better. Much of a players development is on their own anyway when no one is training them.


No, bigger picture GDA (and BDA) are too big. There just isn't enough quality talent to fill rosters and make games consistently competitive. There aren't even enough quality trainers to go around and that is what DA is supposed to be about. Shrink down by at least 1/3, preferable at least 50%. Make it all about the talent - that is what is is supposed to be about but isn't currently. Have USSF start putting real $ into it as well so that non MLS clubs can offer more scholarships.


Exactly.

Because the DA wasn't built around letting the weaker players play. That is the whole point. The DA never had WEAK PLAYERS! it was the 1%.
Parents like the one above who don't wanna put the travel time in are gonna gracefully bow out and play where its convenient. And there is nothing wrong with that.
You take the best 22 girls in the area and you don't need 50 coaches to fill spots. You get a few great coaches and a few elite players and now we have some competition nationally and globally.
The WNT isn't taking girls that can't compete. Sorry. The kids who make those teams are the best in the country. And their parents are travelling/flying them all over the place, even internationally.
No one wants to sit the bench. No one wants to be playing against teams they have no business being around.
US Soccer needs to fix this and fast.

some of the thinking, frankly all the thinking is whacked up. and your kid will end up, no matter the league, where they belong because they are what they are. they are top d1, middle level d1, top d3, etc. because thats who they are. and i'm sure some are incredible, i know many are out of this world great. but its not the league. its your kid. you have to stop giving the league these credits. expecting great kids to spend 2 hours each day , x 4 sessions week? are you insane? seriously, are you nuts? the only thing that promotes are the families with the financial means to have a dad or mom spend their entire life away from the rest of the family. do you think that brings the best athletes out of the woodwork? the men's team never draws the very best american athletes. if they could get lebron, kobe bryant, cam newton, or any other top athlete in basketball or baseball or the best from any sport, irregardless of race , religion, etc. then we'd get somewhere. soccer might be a draw on the girls side because i cant think of too many other sports on the women's side that pay much more or have more fan fare. maybe tennis? basketball. but thats it.
on the men's side its basketball, baseball, football, tennis,
not sure the resolution, but GDA was the bad reinvention of an already good wheel, and in doing so it whacked itself up and strained ECNL

unfortunately, you are probably right here. And, sadly, this also means that US Soccer/GDA has been mostly about money and some egos. They might have started designing this as a way to identify and support talented kids and eventually build better national teams, but as soon as those egos got involved, the whole thing stopped being about the kids. I don't know if there's an easy fix to this. It took football, basketball and baseball many more decades to figure it out (if they have).

GDA is doing well in cali and texas. east coast is home to money making ecnl. until top ecnl clubs can be convinced they can make same money in GDA there is no way they will go in to sacrifice their revenue stream. it will take the top talent to join gda from early on in order to establish a foothold in this market.

While revenue has an affect on club's decisions let's not minimize the club’s are serving their customer needs best with the ECNL model for the great majority. For the top 1-5% of the girls, playing in college at the right level is their aspiration and ECNL serves this need. The GDA looking for the top .1% in each age group is a wrong fit for the other 99.9% who are expected to play and pay to make it viable for the .1%.

Our performance at the latest U20 FIFA cup makes it clear that the ECNL model does not work for international competition but that is not where the 99.9% are aspiring to so alignment of goals is in order. Highly doubt the GDA will take the league apart now that it is operating but it would only help if they cut the number of teams (down to half or a third?) and work on supporting the travel costs to make it viable.

This is the same flawed thinking that gets trotted out over and over again by Americans.

Take a look at a picture of Luka Modric. Tell me he "appears" to be a global superstar athlete in the same way that the aforementioned guys do. Soccer bears no similarity to basketball or football, which are sports that very frequently feature superstars that never even played their sport before reaching High School age. The reason we do not do well is not lack of athletic players. It is lack of players with vision, creativity and spatial awareness. The fact that our best kids play DA for 3 years while the rest of the world has their best kids turning pro is where we fall off.

It's not flawed thinking to say our best athletes play other sports. They do. That include those that are physically gifted and mentally gifted (and at the top levels, both). And it makes a difference.

However, the elephant in the room is that in the rest of the world the training academies get a financial payoff if they develop world class players where in the US the training academies don't. Instead the US training academies concentrate on players that could afford their tuition fees because that's how they make their money. And furthermore, they concentrate on winning games rather than development because a gaudy win-loss record is their best recruitment tool for those players.

This is flawed thinking, The ECNL is not serving the player well. People only think that because its all they know. Back to back games is not ideal. The YNTs are looking for the very best players from a league they feel develops ALL levels of player. The notion that any league does not have varying levels of talent is nonsense.

Ok but DA has no rules about who can play, Aaron is asking players to play in DA games on weekend even though they played High School all week. Don’t come on and deny I have texts from Aaron and I’ve already sent emails directly to the Director of DA Soccer. Paul may want to dump the dead weight because their are other allegations that are being told about him. He verbally abuses the girls and takes envelopes under the table from parents so their kids get special attention.

why would you air that here? if there is an issue, raise it in the proper forum. The GDA has hurt itself by its faiure to manage its message at launch.

Perception - The GDA is a league you should play in if you think you are a YNT level player. Reality - GDA is really just another league with more player friendly rules ( if you value g/p ratios)

P - USSF are heavily involved R - the clubs are still the most important pieces and USSF oversight is there, but relatively toothless. USSF cant really afford to aggressively sanction clubs

these are big issues. I thin the only way the USSF gets what it wants is to work with the ECNL to reduce the number of elite teams and this will never happen. All the money in the womens game is in VOLUME not QUALITY

Several top clubs went back to ECNL, including the top CA club. It's not just about revenue but about where their customers want to be. If enough top players don't want GDA then clubs can't compete. If the league doesn't have a strong competitive level (and it doesn't here in the NE) then the league is less desirable. Many rosters have 5-6 really good players and the rest good but not "top" talent. When teams can't compete, that in turn means fewer top players want it the following year. For the average middle to upper income soccer family saving $1500 isn't going to be a big driver - they'll chose based on coaching quality and if the league fits what they want. USSF will never be able to subsidize GDA enough for clubs to then be able to lower fees dramatically AND still make money. GDA will never have the free-to-play MLS support BDA has. MLS clubs is where the top talent migrates and better represents what USSF is trying to go with DA. If GDA went much smaller then the ability to lower fees via USSF support becomes a more realistic goal.

Economics is the key to this equation of ECNL vs. GDA. GDA went with the old adage, "If you build it they will come" and they were right and were able to get the BIG clubs that were the force behind the success of ECNL. What they didn't anticipate is that they were not going to knock out ECNL as they thought because College coaches still attended all the ECNL events in big numbers and they have more college showcase events then DA. Our DA friends were very frustrated that they did not have those same opportunities. In addition, US Soccer were not amenable to the big club suggestions on how to grow DA and make it viable. This stance is the beginning of the slide of US Soccer especially here in the East Coast. Clubs like PDA and FC Stars are based on numbers of players and teams. There teams have more depth then most. With the rules of DA about playing time and substitution rules based on the pros rather than college then parents began to complain and that caused those clubs to try and change the rules but US Soccr wouldn't hear it. Big mistake, these clubs were welcomed back with wide open arms and given additional ECNL teams at different age groups. So instead of a single team you have 2 full paying teams at both of those clubs. That is alot of money coming in if both teams have 20 plus players each! Once again College Coaches will come out in mass at ECNL events and DA is now trying to add more College showcase events to keep up with ECNL. The only solution is to have a "meeting of the minds" between both leagues but just like with life that means you have to put egos aside and that is highly unlikely especially on agreeing among the parties to make both leagues work and be viable in this country. Not going to happen when it's about egos instead of common sense. This discussion will go on for another 18 pages and there will be no solution.

The flaw is in your thinking that back to back games (2 games over a weekend) is more important to players that the limited substitution rule as an example.
Agree that every league has varying talent but a good portion of the potential players do not like the GDA format and they are paying customers.
The only way unpopular rules can be forced on to the players is if something is "free" and GDA is far from it.

its a terrible take because Clubs do what the majority want, not what the handful of elite players want. Most players are not elite. I dont care how "top" the Club is. PDA are arguably the top Club in the north east. When was the last time they had the very best Club player in the North East ? You say many rosters have 5-6 really good players, not hey really dont. Back to PDA, how many National team players do they have in the entire Club? Probably no more than some Clubs that are perceived to be far worse.

The point is its the mid level player who determines the direction of Clubs and what makes a club better is depth, not top end talent. That depth is all about volume. Its about taking another Clubs best player and making her your 5th best. Point is she probably is looking at the exact same schools whether she leaves her current club or not and her YNT prospects are probably no better.

Its all driven by parents perception of their own kids and that is the WORST thing to build a talent based structure on. Its the best thing to build a business on though. Parent vanity.

As a parent who went from ECNL to GDA, I have first-hand experience, so here is my take. ECNL is absolutely more condusive to the college game, and GDA is more for the professional or NT player. So unless GDA changes their substitution rules, they will eventually contract to a point where they become irrelevant. Every family had a reason to leave ECNL for GDA, and our situation is similar to most, bad HS team, and better coaching at DA club, seems simple, no? Today, I am getting the sense that our club is on the fence about GDA next year, which is very telling. We are almost done with youth soccer, and all of this madness, thank God....

Coaches at the best schools recruit the best players. Newsflash, they dont need showcases. Soccer is a small world. They know who the elite talent is. Bottom line, the ECNL is a venue for the non elite player to market themselves to Colleges. That is essentially womens soccer.

The elite player does not have a venue to really develop. They create their own if they are lucky enough to be around good enough coaches/instruction and in an area where they can have other players (can be any age, male or female) to push them.

The GDA has to cater to the average player because they need them IF they want a national league

There is no obvious solution to the issue. Womens soccer in the USA is built around catering to the parents of mid level players for profit. Its not about talent identification and development

The GDA changed its substitution rule. However, If you are looking for unlimited subbing there are clubs out there that allow this.

Not completely true on why FC Stars left. They left because they have an ownership stake in ECNL, so paying another league for their top talent goes against their bottom line. Also, the work involved with player evaluations and fitness tests, etc was more than they could staff. So, they punted.

its like saying a good portion of the students think math is hard, so lets just make it easier. Instead of expecting our coaches to teach a level and accept that if our kids cannot make it, we are at the wrong level, the approach is as follows. Lets make sure the Club drop the level to make me, the customer, happy.

This is BS, but its what happens in a consumer driven environment as opposed too a talent driven one where parents have no desire to be honest about ability. Its a fascinating study in how parents think and how sports that are NOT mainstream are perfectly suited for exploitation. the whole girls Youth soccer explosion is a fascinating case study. Its built on Title IX, the growth in Div 1 Football, middle class parents and college and many other factors. Its led to a bubble that shows little sign of bursting, but its not because the USA cares about women's soccer.

We cannot sustain a pro league that has a minimum wage above 15k per year. We even lost a team under those terms in Breakers and Sky Blue cannot provide basic facilities for their team even though its owned by one of NJs richer guys.

a sport whose growth is not driven by excellence. Very interesting

The GDA changed its substitution rule. However, If you are looking for unlimited subbing there are clubs out there that allow this.



My daughter is a starter, and never leaves the field, I was referencing the other players, and their unhappy parents.

That's a heavy statement you make....spill the beans and let the world see.

I believe I am at the same club and this will be a big blow to GDA in NY. I don't believe anyone is looking for unlimited subbing, but I do believe clubs are looking for ECNL type subbing where a player can re-enter in the 2nd half. Our club has 12 year old girls who just came off the small field, now playing on big fields, and coaches should be able to pull them off, talk to them, and send them back in the 2nd half. We will go back to ECNL next year if they will have us.

They also didn't have enough talent to do the league split. Not many clubs can, partly because of limited talent and talent dilution but also because some kids just don't want to give up HS. So yipee, DA got most YNT players to move over. But if players #2-20 on any given team aren't nearly as good, guess what will happen(because, few teams will ever have that much talent on one roster)? The team does poorly, more decide to leave, talent gets even weaker, team does poorly....it can spiral out quickly

If they will have you??? Please, after 1 year of the programming every girl on that team will be better than any ECNL girl, so in a fair fight, you got this. However, depending on where you go, there might be political reasons why your child might not be welcomed back. Its all a snake-pit, and you can’t trust anyone, any. one. Be happy, and enjoy the moments, they will be fond memories soon enough, and don’t forget to breath.... Go NYCFC!

ECNL is still planning the playoffs at the Surf fields in Oceanside. ECNL interaction with clubs is via business ultimatums - that's what happened here on the east coast. "can't be GDA and ECNL". Unfortunately they were under legal contract for the fields. Criminal behavior.

That's really what it boils down to. Pick the club with the best coaching that plays in a league that fits what you're player wants and is willing to deal with. If you're good, you're good. College coaches dont' get too wrapped up in badges and neither should families - the differences between the two leagues isn't the canyon it is in BDA.

That's total nonsense. Compare the finals from the same age group from the last season. ECNL/National championship - kick and run, GDA - ball on the ground, build outs, great off the ball movement of players that know what to do. I don't believe any of the GDA kids are even the Nat Team targets.

Those films could be instructional but to use them to help a NY player choose a club? Makes zero sense.

None of the clubs in any of the films are near to New York for a player to join - the gda clubs you highlight are hundreds and hundreds of miles away from our players.

One of the clubs in the ECNL films - San Diego Surf - is out of the ECNL and in the GDA league. It was awful last year and now is great? That is just silly. (SJEB from the national league was also supposed to be in the GDA this year - but they are not - no idea why)


Put up some video from local clubs that would be real options for local players - particularly long island,- showing quality instruction and quality soccer and make your case, A Colorado club may as well be on the moon as far as our players are concerned.

Stop moving the goalposts. The videos show the difference between the leagues in a very clear way, college coaches are well aware of that. If you want to see local games, talk to the parents - they have videos, or even go see the games.

You can figure out local clubs - teams obviously fluctuate with different age groups. Also get your facts straight. Surf was always in GDA - but now they are also out of ECNL. GDA in SoCal has a separate U16 and a U16/17 division (as well as frontier in Texas). SJEB joined the GDA and they are starting at U13 and not fielding other teams. Older teams were already committed.

That guy is not with NYCFC, probably a NYSC parent. Lots of anatomical envy going on over there in Manhattanville...

The ex-Alby dad now playing ECNL dying to keep tabs on his old club, move on already![/quote]

Does every Alby parent hate every other Alby parent. Thank goodness that we don’t live in your region. It was funny at first but I can’t belive what I read. It just never ends. Is it a club thing? Or a New York thing? You people or miserable 😖 [/quote]

It is the Alby culture. That's why so many left.....[/quote]

I got an idea 💡. Why don’t you Alby / Fury people just start your own thread and rip each other to threads there. Or maybe go get a life instead. I can only imagine what your sidelines are like.
Shameful, your children are watching .

Yet you are here complaining about them on this anonymous forum, saying you are writing emails to US Soccer about them. I hope they throw the whole lot of you out of the DA.
If they do we won’t have to travel a few hours to hear you disparage each other’s kids on the field. First I though you were badmouthing our kids but soon realized you were talking about your kids teammates. How pathetic ...

wait, the all-might NYCFC lost this weekend? all games? I saw the results, wow, just wow. The popping of your egos could be heard from miles away. A quick review of the roster depth and minutes played has me wondering if GDA is going to survive. some of these rosters have 15, 16 kids on them, and there are 2,3 kids playing 10, 15, 25 minutes. Which means, they cant play.
That hum of quiet when you start to come to the realization that your choice was a bad one.
All you have to do is come across the street and re-enter the normal non-fictional world. Your coaches will be the same, the jerseys a bit different, but the quality so much higher.
Many have come. The water is warm.

The one stallions player on that list was playing up 2 years. She is now on a GDA team, again playing up either 1 or 2 years. So either she decided that she outgrew the Stallions program or she was told to switch to an Academy. Another girl from the same league who got an invite turned it down due to distance, age and other commitments. Is it possible that the PDP program could become a DA? I am pretty sure those teams could easily beat any of the local DA clubs from ages 12 - 15.

We are still all-mighty, compared to you, and unlike whatever league you hail from, you can see who plays, and for how long. “GDA is not perfect, but its perfect for us”, I love that quote. NEFC is really good, hats off to them. Let me ask you a simple question, as my daughter is committed, do you really think my daughters future college coach cares about wins and loses?? Or, does he simply want to see her improve month by month until she graduates and joins his team??

Committed where ? Why does your situation make NYCFC and better or worse ? NYCFC is no different to any other Club. Some players like it, some get better, some are really good, some not so much. Why you keep associating NYCFC with some production line of success is beyond me. the top players from that Club past and present would never act like you seem to and im pretty sure Kaz will tell you that they put the work in.

You need to relax

PDP program could at least scrimmage the GDA teams if NYCSL could arrange it, but would not be able to join. I do believe PDP used to invite NTC scouts to practices?

GDA has 4 pract a week and 1 game requirement and no external games. PDP is a once a month + occasional games event - so you have more freedom. It would be interesting to see both programs collaborate more - and you could contrast each approach.

Not a NYCFC parent - but I think having multiple solid clubs in GDA is very positive in the long term. Even if NYCFC loses some games - makes them better and more competitive at showcases. Last year's pain point was that there were too many clubs that were just not ready - this year that pool is hopefully shrinking.

You really have a major psychological problem! In your mind, your daughter is the entire NYCFC team! BUT SHE’S NOT! She belongs to a great group of girls who would do absolutely fine without her!!! Unfortunately You’ve raised an uncoachable player who’s a huge ball hog. But not her fault! Her fathers an idiot!!

The parents of that girl have requested privacy since they got to the club. Someone’s disgruntled and loves to stir things up regarding that kid and and NYCFC, to the point that it seems like an obsession. I wonder why that is. There are many girls committed from NYCFC. Watch what’s written here and the ongoing trash talk that gets thrown in a certain direction. What these comments show are agendas, jealousy, and people pretending to be other people to purposely elicit crazy responses which happens OFTEN. We are all surrounded by these idiots every weekend on the sidelines. Look around, then look in the mirror. You know who you are and some of us know too. Point is worry about your own kid people and if you get too worried, don’t handle it by anonymously trashing teenagers.

Yes, they have a professional women’s team, it’s called Manchester City, ever heard of them? Kaz has recently mentioned that the pro team will be keeping tabs on the girls, both here and in college.

Your kid isn’t on either team? Classic BOTN response, sure, whatever. Being that you have no dog in this fight, another classic, tell us oh wise one, why are stats so important to determine the better team? If you had watched either team, you would be able to see a similar style. Control, and positive build-up, from the back if necessary, but hopefully from MF, because of an opposing team turnover, because of constant pressing. If you had a brain, you would know that since they both play a similar style, a boys DA style, that the prevailing factor would be 1. Mistakes, and individual talent. Count yourself lucky that I enlighten you, you are most welcome...

this is what its come to you attack each other endlessly while giving back handed complements, and self praising side notes... "build up play" you wouldnt know build up play if it smacked you in the ass.
insulting one another and then complementing yourselves. you are so self-absorbed you cant but do one or the other: why are most top d3 and d1 coaches focused on ECNL and other leagues and turning away from your 10 months GDA? why exactly aren't the BEST BEST kids in your program? why are most elsewhere? rosters with 15, kids playing 30min or less? studying for SAT and ACTs while in the backseat on the way to a 6-0 blowout against a team that's 5 hours away, and she'll play 30 minutes. in pursuit of being recruited into the NWSL's 6000/year min salary.
after a while, it gets stupid. you open your mouth except others to stuff it full of your crap.

PDP is now 1 practice per week per location. So if you wanted to go you could do 4 or 5 practices a week, not as a team but with girls from different areas. The only games are the tournaments and the invites. The coaches seem to have an amazing eye for talent, they put together the best teams I have seen.

In addition to the freedom you mentioned, the coaches let the girls play their game without much interference, an occasional sub or position switch but almost no directions from the sidelines. Last tournament in Massachusetts the girls sides worked out all of their kinks through the 1st round and most of the teams won their brackets despite playing up a year.

I suspect that if they played together as a club their problem would be finding suitable competition.

if current ECNL play is any indication of quality of the teams - there is the same exact problem. Look at the U13 and U14 PDA Blue teams - they would have represented the GDA teams should have PDA stayed. They are posting the similar scores (as you make fun of above) against other teams in the league: 6:0, 6:1, 4:0.

Instead of posting BS about lack of college interest (check out college coaches that attended the showcases for each league) consider that whether your kid is in ECNL or GDA - there is a huge gap in the quality of teams - but perhaps in ECNL that gap falls out after just a single team, whereas in GDA you'd have 3 out 6 teams that could be considered competitive. Either way - both leagues need a lot of improvement, and there is probably no peace in sight.

Oh yeah I hear Fury/Albertson Fury practices have a Disney Land feel about them at the moment. You are so right about 4 practices a week and for sure it won’t effect their fragile preteen/teenage egos when at the end of those 4 practice weeks that they are getting pounded weekend after weekend by every team they play, it’s just the best motivator.

My child goes to school with a player on the U14 Fury or Albertson Fury GDA team(no need to say which one it is) so I speak to her mom at school drop off at least twice a week. She says the team is in a very low place at the moment the parents and kids are not happy about the direction anything is going. She is a very honest person, if you are a parent from this team and you come on here saying everything is sunshine and buttercups you are only fooling yourself.

Nice try jacka$$...keep hearing things then...when you're kid can't hang for 90 minutes come to a Fury session and see what getting in shape is. Plus tons of touches on the ball. Record is not great, but training is pretty good.[/quote]

Who is the jacka$$? Keep shelling out the $$$ & buying into that line of bull.

My child goes to school with a player on the U14 Fury or Albertson Fury GDA team(no need to say which one it is) so I speak to her mom at school drop off at least twice a week. She says the team is in a very low place at the moment the parents and kids are not happy about the direction anything is going. She is a very honest person, if you are a parent from this team and you come on here saying everything is sunshine and buttercups you are only fooling yourself.

no team is all sunshine and buttercups. but for all those who are not on the team to disparage the teams, it is not cool.

It's the usual parents who have left for "greener" pastures, and teams that haven't even started training yet. It's easy to bash their last team. They think their kids should be a starter everywhere because they play mid level HS soccer. Or because the coach never gave them a chance. Newsflash - maybe your kid just isn't at that level - hey, that's ok, but why bash someone else??? Same ass clowns who whine and moan at games. You're gone, move on, stop asking old teammates how the team is doing.

They havent started training because they are enjoying playing with their peers in high school. They realize that less than 1 % of the players playing GDA will move on to top division 1 schools. Parents are stripping their children of something they can NEVER get back. High School games, being with their friends and enjoying life in high school. For what? Getting killed every game day in and day out?

very few high school teams would qualify as a good soccer or team building experience. obviously probably just as toxic as albertsons or this poster above. every non-gda club i know of spends 3-4 weeks un-teaching the HS habits.

Where are you getting your stats from? Ohhh right!!! You just made them up!? Just like every BOTN idiot. The percentage of GDA players that will play D1 is actually more like 30-40%. Unfortunately you are justifying why your daughter did not make a DA team and why DA teams are not good for kids.. Don’t worry about our DA daughters! They have amazing experiences with their friends traveling not only the country but the world- doing what they absolutely love!! Not all Players are built the same. I’m sorry your daughter wasn’t good enough 👈🏽

To be fair, OP said TOP div1. Thats about 20 schools MAX. Thats just a fact. You dont need GDA.or ECNL pr se, but if hats your choice FOR WHATEVER REASON, then i dont get why others dont respect it

The GDA folk talk about practices etc The ECNL people go on about the non soccer benefits of HS.

Im sorry, but you can get both of those things if you want them. Club teams have camaraderie. Some HS teams have good practices and coaching. One size does not fit al...live and let live

My kid went ECNL/HS>GDA>College ...both leagues helped in their own way as did HS. If College is your goal, then there i moe than one route

What do you expect they are the same product just different name, you still have Aaron trying to run both teams. How can he be on sideline for both Fury and Albertson? He shows up and the level instantly drops because nobody wants to play for this waste of space on the sideline. For Albertson you have Eric and Fury you have Izzy, there is really no need for a guy who has zero soccer IQ trying to be Paul. He is going to run all these trainers and players out of Fury/Albertson because of how he treats people. And Paul obviously doesn’t care because he has received multiple emails about this guy and his actions.
Susa and EM are better options, they put a better product on the field.

Who are you kidding? You wouldn’t know what a soccer IQ was if it bit you on your ass.
Funny thing is all the players left after Izzy took over. But he is a good guy to hang out with. I get it. I also love that you are proud of being a tattle tale. I emailed, I texted, I send smoke signals to complain about this and that. STFU already.

Are you delusional. After your pals took over this club was far less successful . Look at the stats from first half to last half of last year . Then they chased many good families away. Good luck to them if they move on. Don’t let the door hit you in you bs.

LISC or Alby won't have 30-40% playing top D1, not by a mile. That 30-40% will also be matched by ECNL. Coaches shop players, not teams or leagues.

That "your kid wasn't good enough" is one of the most tired tropes ever used in DA discussions, boys or girls. for many highly skilled players DA just is'nt for them, either because their local DA club sucks, they want HS sports or other reasons. You DA koolaid drinkers refuse to see that not all DA clubs are the same and in fact that disparity in GDA is worse than the boys's side. It's far from soccer nirvana.

*** HELLO McFly that’s even worse!!! That means your young teams are HORRIBLE... Your U14 is 85% 06 kids what happens when they all have to fill the U15 team next year with those 06 kids that means U14 will be nothing but 07 kids. You have to fold the Albertson GDA to even have a shot at being good. But we know that’s not going to happen because that would shrink PR’s $$$. You are FK’d ***

You seem to want to make it GDA vs ECNL. go back an look at how many kids from the North East per graduating class end up playing top D1. look at the 2000s that jsut graduated.. a product of BOTH ECNL and GDA coaching ( and HS and other leagues). How many are playing top D1? 10 maybe?

its not a league thing , its a structural inability to develop top end players consistently. Everyone want to talk abiut :highly skilled" but the proof is in the end product, not how many ECNL, GDA or HS titles a team that gathers enough talent RELATIVE to others does. NY,NJ,CT,MA etc are so consumed with petty BS that the bigger picture is lost.

no disrespect, but Hofstra is not top d1 , Fordham is not top d1. Manhattan is not top d1. Villanova is not top d1. Great schools for sure, but these are not top d1 soccer destinations. There are very few and there is no was the clubs in the NE are sending 30/40 pct of the players to those schools.

NYCFC 02/03 team is Top 10 Nationally, right now. If they called-back/up, and when completely healthy, they have a legitimate shot at a USSDA National Championship.

Why do you feel the need to not tell the truth? They are a good team who picked up some good players and lost some good players. They currently are #12. They were top 10 last year and did not make the knockout round.

Wait thats not fair your are leaving out FC Fury they are 3-10 this season. Wait that is also horrible. Are you telling me parents are paying around 5k and Fury Albertson and Fury FC are a combined 3 wins and 23 LOSES so far this season. Not sure but maybe they need 7 days a week training???[/quote]


They have some of their top players playing HS ball right now. The landscape will look different come spring. When you talk trash, you better have facts.[/quote]

You keep making the same BS excuse. You have ONE player who is playing HS ball now, and she didn't even play on the team last year. Everyone else LEFT! No one is coming back to that mess! It was probably you that said the best 11 were still on the team, and talked about all the girls that left. Well, you got your wish. Your "top" 11 are now playing. How's that working out for you?

*** HELLO McFly that’s even worse!!! That means your young teams are HORRIBLE... Your U14 is 85% 06 kids what happens when they all have to fill the U15 team next year with those 06 kids that means U14 will be nothing but 07 kids. You have to fold the Albertson GDA to even have a shot at being good. But we know that’s not going to happen because that would shrink PR’s $$$. You are FK’d ***[/quote]

me sense the dark side is strong in this one.

Made you look that up, hahaha....and as far as losing good players, who?? At any given moment they can have 5 or 6 USWNT camp attendees on the field, yeah that sounds pretty good. Stop talking about last year, that’s a weak argument, and count yourself lucky if your kid plays against them.

LMAO!! That is a oxymoron! Meaning that anyone that is a FORMER Fury parent, can't help but NOT be disgruntled. Whether they went to LISC, NYCFC, EMSC, SURF, SUSA, or playing for the HS they are in a better place. So, we are extremely happy. We just are going to check you when you come on here trying to spread the BS. Sit down and shut up, and no one will even think about you.


Since you asked.. From the USSF website LISC 04 2-1-1, Fury 04 1-3-0

And before you start the "LISC only played weak teams" Both teams played Arlington. LISC tied 1-1, Fury lost 2-1

Well, didn't you just expose yourself? You little trouble-maker you. Since U15 is the oldest age group at LISC, and you are specifically referencing them...that must mean your little star must be in the same age group. You know the record - I am pretty sure you check and refesh your search every Sunday evening. There's so much more soccer to be had. Rest easy Fury -ites.

Not for nothing, but the only team from LISC who's record is posted is the 04. The USSF doesn't post and 05 scores or standings.

I'm not sure what you mean. The GDA starts at U14 (05), but only information for the U15 (04) teams are posted for any club. I think LISC has a U13 team that is playing EDP.

There are 2 divisions where GDA starts at U13 (frontier and atlantic). There are also 2 divisions where they have separate U16 from U16/17 teams (frontier and southwest). If you look at Solar's results (not the club page) you will see they have teams in U13, U14, U15, U16, U16/17 and U18/19.

This forum should be dispanded.. A bunch of parents who most likely never played a sport in their life commenting on what they see from the bleachers..btw... what you see from the bleachers is you never stepping on a field so stop embarrassing yourself.. or worse.. a bunch of parents who have played sports and now living on their couch eating donuts trying to remember their dreams through their poor child... This site is a joke..berating..belittling.. abusive name calling.. The moderator needs to restructure.. This site is embarrassing for those of us with children playing in any of the fore mentioned teams who are normal ..sane parents.. why does this site allow parents to bash, degrade, and embarrass.? When I say fore mentioned..I mean any team listed anywhere on back of the net... make the user register with a name...

You are confused because you cant read and do research as outlined. That's what happens to people who live on LI. The entire universe of soccer rushes beyond LI and LI folks are not aware that there are U13 and U16 age groups in other areas of the country.

Go to GDA site, look for results - only select SJEB Rush - click apply filters:
Here you go - a game report for U13 SJEB Rush:

Next a U16 group (note: NOT A U15, NOT as U16/17)
http://www.ussoccerda.com/sam/standings/ss/view_game_report.php?eventId=5423116&teamId=8556788

Why dont these groups show up "on a club page" or U16 as "schedule by age"? Because they are just limited pilot groups, I assume and GDA didnt spend more money on the site.

There are 2 divisions where GDA starts at U13 (frontier and atlantic). There are also 2 divisions where they have separate U16 from U16/17 teams (frontier and southwest). If you look at Solar's results (not the club page) you will see they have teams in U13, U14, U15, U16, U16/17 and U18/19.


On the ussoccerda.com it only shows the scores for the U15 and up. If you look on the GDA club map for the Atlantic division it states LISC and Arlington both only have U14 and U15. I looked at Solar. Their GDA teams start at U14. The boys DA teams start at U12. Is that where the confusion is?


You are confused because you cant read and do research as outlined. That's what happens to people who live on LI. The entire universe of soccer rushes beyond LI and LI folks are not aware that there are U13 and U16 age groups in other areas of the country.

Go to GDA site, look for results - only select SJEB Rush - click apply filters:
Here you go - a game report for U13 SJEB Rush:

Okay listen Jackass, I looked at the main page and didn't see it. I tried to hold a conversation with you and there you come with the insults. Ok, so maybe there are DA for other ages in other parts of the country. But if you were so freakin smart, you would have known that LISC doesn't have a younger team and been on here asking questions. The fact that there are U13 or U16 age groups in other areas do not affect us, because they are not options available for us. So I didn't bother. Like I wish I didn't bother answering you.

keep convincing yourself that it is beneficial to attack a team with the intent of trying to defame includign the use of " I heard from someone" to create doubt while improving your agenda. why else would you care ? why are all the attacks just on this one club by outsiders?[/quote]

It's the usual parents who have left for "greener" pastures, and teams that haven't even started training yet. It's easy to bash their last team. They think their kids should be a starter everywhere because they play mid level HS soccer. Or because the coach never gave them a chance. Newsflash - maybe your kid just isn't at that level - hey, that's ok, but why bash someone else??? Same ass clowns who whine and moan at games. You're gone, move on, stop asking old teammates how the team is doing. [/quote]



You are SO RIGHT everyone is dying to be on the FC Fury Albertson team. That is the 0 WINS 13 LOSES FC FURY GDA ALBERTSON TEAM... 0-13 YOUR ALBERTSON FURY GDA CLUB IS A JOKE!!!! HEY LOOK THERE GO THE WHEELS WHERE IS THE BUS???? ASK IF YOU CAN GET YOUR 5K BACK!!!!
[/quote]

These numbers are very telling I never imagined an Albertson run organization could go 0-13 through all their age groups. Those poor parents must be very frustrated with the situation.
[/quote]


It feels like the Fall of the Roman. Marcus Aurelius is dead and his idiot son Commodus is ruining the Empire. Can Albertson ever recover? 0-13 will they ever win again? How can they recruit, who will want to go there?

My apologies. That's why I asked about LISC playing U13. I was not confused about other age groups.

Wow....its really not that serious. Its still early in the season and the Fury teams usually perform better in the Spring. You're comparing youth soccer to a Roman empire? What kind of analogy-----....smh. Trolls will do the most just to incite the other keyboard gangsters to chime in. Let these kids play. I am not even a Fury parent, in fact I am always amazed that people continue to flock to that club despite the warnings about the DOC and his trainers, but these are kids going out and training and putting it all on the field because that's what they care to do.

I'd rather divert this conversation back to trying to understand why regionally the teams (whether they are DA, ECNL or whatever) do not show well against other regions. It can't just be the dilution of players as that is not specific to just our area. Is it that the training locally is subpar? Let's look into understanding this and other such challenges for our young players rather than all the unnecessary rhetoric spewed above.

It has to do with fundamentals. Not that players aren't playing their hardest or becoming demons lol.

Next time your team is playing, look at how the girls trap the ball, pass the ball to their teammate, control the ball while running, make a run after a pass...etc.
You can have all the best weather and facilities in the world, but if you don't have any fundamental skills its all meaningless.
We focus on winning and not training, and players wind up club hopping often here, not necessarily their fault, but it adds to the inconsistency in the training.

Just a quick look at the Atlantic conf (PF not doing well, Virginia and spirit doing OK). Notable change is in Washington Spirit - Maryland U15 - it seems to be winning more games. Is it training or is it a wholesale change of team?

This year the Spirit-Maryland beat NYCFC and NYSC U 15 teams. How much have they changed since last year?

I think Spirit was one of the clubs that published exactly what they were doing, including a full $5000 training fee (including winter training and uniforms) which was a huge sticker shock for the unknown value. In hindsight, it's probably the same number that our coaches would ultimately command if you included uniforms and "side training".

Record:
http://www.ussoccerda.com/sam/standings/regevent/index.php?containerId=MzgzNDM0MA%3D%3D&partialGames=0
Last Year's record: 3 wins in 27 games
This Year's record: 3 wins in 4 games so far

And comparing last year's last game to this year's official roster:
This year's roster - 18 kids with only 8 kids from last year
Last year's roster - 21 kids (including 5 kids in the 2005/2006 age group)

We'll probably have to wait to the showcases to see how successful these teams will be. Did 10 kids leave because the training sucked, or were 10 kids replaced by better players at tryouts?

I can agree - the all year outdoor training has to be a significant factor, but its not like there aren't indoor facilities, futsal training (which whether you agree or not, I personally think is helpful in tactical skill training), gyms and so forth that can be utilized to keep the kids conditioned through our winter months. There's got to be something else we are not in tune with that sets us apart. Colorado, Michigan, and other states alike produce highly competitive teams - what is our excuse?

Are we paying too much money towards used car salespersons in regards to these clubs? Who is vetting their training? Do most of us flock to these larger clubs because of the buzz they produce locally? What credentials do most of these trainers have to be considered quality?

I agree that futsal training as well as playing games is so beneficial for all players and should be done by all teams. As far as comparison in other Regions there is a difference in warm weather states as well as in those states that have more months of warmer weather as well as other outdoor sports activities that put these young ladies playing out door sports rather than being confined to an indoor facility. Training just 2-3 days a week on 1/2 or 1/4 fields just does not work. Having so called trainers who just put cones on a field and train as if they just finished reading a coaching book is painfully obvious as well. What is quality is a very broad term and you cannot define it becuase every player is uniqe and are at different levels as far as there speed, quickness and athleticism which is the most important qualities and traits for there potential as a soccer player. There is no trainer who is going to make a player better than they are capable of becoming. That is very important to repeat. No trainer is going to make a player better than there potential when looing at their capabilities when looking at the athleticism, speed and quickness. That's just a fact that parents do not want to hear. There is no excuse but I have seen over the years of ECNL that great athletes will triumph over teams that are very good and very competitive but not at those high level of athleticism. That is what college coaches use as a barometer in identifying players for there college teams. How do you think players at the youngest ages get identified for the National camps? ATHLETICISM. That cannot be taught.

Its not the same, can’t convince me that indoor whatever, futsal, fitness, checkers is a substitute for 365 beautiful grass fields, with the Pacific Ocean 100 yards away. Its absolutely a glorious place to train and play, ugh.

Cost (50% higher than in cali or TX or even tophat) and proximity to training (not in urban areas) may be a factor. But I also think that "ECNL inertia" or lack of trust in GDA in this part of the country that is huge. Top National talent still plays outside of GDA (SSS as well as WC - even if she trains with GDA).

I never get this approach. Look at the top 10 College teams. Where do the kids come from ? Forget who has the best teams at u 15 IF you are really trying to gain evidence. Adjust your numbers based on population densities. Adjust your numbers a bit for location.

i think you will find that this area produces a lot of top level players.

There is the very US soccer parent MYTH that training times, coaching etc can make players. Its BS. Players make players. So many are looking at so many largely irrelevant factors instead of looking in the mirror or at their own kid OBJECTIVELY

im not trying to be a jackass, but just because a kid is on a national team does not make them top national talent. It means A COACH likes what that kid brings to a team at U-X.

There will be talent that plays outside any big league, but the point is there IS plenty of talent in the NY/NJ area. Its just NOT being developed to its fullest because of the commercial pressure to win games no as quickly as possible and the huge financial burdens that a national travel league requires.

We could probably develop BETTER players by having NO travel at all above a 20 mile radius, a better training to game ratio and a series of non age limited friendlies between different Clubs based on ABILITY. But who would buy into that? Only people who were truly PASSIONATE about the GAME.

Not people who are passionate about the benefits they perceive the game can bring. This game is more about that than anything else.

if there were no College scholarships I wonder how many would play and what the cost of a Club would be? If there were no bragging rights, just the pleasure of seeing your kids get better at a game they loved, who would care?

I think VERY few

That cannot be taught.[/quote]

Athleticism is specific to the players. I agree, it is important that parents understand the difference between a determined athletic child and just a determined child. However, I think the issue is much broader. Athleticism sets apart individuals - not teams. For a specific GDA example, what is it about FC Virginia that they dominate the Atlantic and NE? They are not outside 10 months of the year - it can get extremely cold in those areas. However they are tactically strong, they are quick on the attack, and efficient in the final third of the field while also doing a tremendous job defensively.

I think our training is diluted. I thing the quality of training in our area is terrible. I think we hold too much weight on wins and losses but not how the players are being prepared for each match up. Training 4 days a week and then getting blown out by 3 or more goals....I don't know something is awry and I do not feel blaming the quality of the players is where we need to focus. I think putting pressure on these clubs to elevate the team by understanding each players capabilities and honing in on where they lack is a missing factor. We are not holding them accountable for their product, but we are bashing each others teams based on each weeks results. The anger needs to be redirected - there needs to be transparency. We are consumers - we pay for a product. The product being the training and development of our young players. Yet we get angry amongst ourselves and not at the people who are directly responsible for the poor results.

Well you are not looking at the right teams. If they were U15 last year they are U16 this year. And this year they did not beat NYCFC they lost 6-1 and they lost 8-1 to Sky Blue.

i understand your point, but i think you under-estimate how many people are full fed up with the nonesense that the commercialization of soccer, that US Soccer themselves have created. Most are smart enough to read and realize that the min wages for NWSL is , well a joke. the salary is capped at like 40,000. the chances of getting to the national team insanely small. most would love to see their kids just play to enjoy the great game. but all this other stuff gets in the way, recruiting at the age of 14, freshmen and middle school kids with verbal offers from big schools, and the coaches of those big schools decrying the process but stating they have to offer it else fall behind their peers. 3000/year for a soccer academy which balloons to 8 to 10k year with travel. hauling your family to colorado for 12 days of games at a massive cost, all to play teams no better than those you might find by driving 3 hours to a nearby showcase.
the soccer landscape is beyond screwed up these days. and yes, some few might cherish this insanity. but i think most would rather get back to seeing the kids have fun, lesser strain, more development, more skills acquisitions.
we're smart enough to know better yet we keep pointing them down this path.they are too young to know that playing soccer, other than for a small # of players, is not a career path. its a game, nothing more.

But I also think that "ECNL inertia" or lack of trust in GDA in this part of the country that is huge. Top National talent still plays outside of GDA (SSS as well as WC - even if she trains with GDA).


im not trying to be a jackass, but just because a kid is on a national team does not make them top national talent. It means A COACH likes what that kid brings to a team at U-X.

There will be talent that plays outside any big league, but the point is there IS plenty of talent in the NY/NJ area. Its just NOT being developed to its fullest because of the commercial pressure to win games no as quickly as possible and the huge financial burdens that a national travel league requires.

We could probably develop BETTER players by having NO travel at all above a 20 mile radius, a better training to game ratio and a series of non age limited friendlies between different Clubs based on ABILITY. But who would buy into that? Only people who were truly PASSIONATE about the GAME.

Not people who are passionate about the benefits they perceive the game can bring. This game is more about that than anything else.

if there were no College scholarships I wonder how many would play and what the cost of a Club would be? If there were no bragging rights, just the pleasure of seeing your kids get better at a game they loved, who would care?

I think VERY few

I can agree - the all year outdoor training has to be a significant factor, but its not like there aren't indoor facilities, futsal training (which whether you agree or not, I personally think is helpful in tactical skill training), gyms and so forth that can be utilized to keep the kids conditioned through our winter months.

I never get this approach. Look at the top 10 College teams. Where do the kids come from ? Forget who has the best teams at u 15 IF you are really trying to gain evidence. Adjust your numbers based on population densities. Adjust your numbers a bit for location.

i think you will find that this area produces a lot of top level players.

There is the very US soccer parent MYTH that training times, coaching etc can make players. Its BS. Players make players. So many are looking at so many largely irrelevant factors instead of looking in the mirror or at their own kid OBJECTIVELY


I think you are missing the gist of the discussion. Though I understand what you are trying to convey - I think we are specifically trying to understand the competitiveness of our region versus others. On the youth level we aren't as competitive comparatively. Not taking away from your opinion just redirecting the thought as to why there is such a drop off in the skill of regional team once we leave our NE area.

Athleticism is specific to the players. I agree, it is important that parents understand the difference between a determined athletic child and just a determined child. However, I think the issue is much broader. Athleticism sets apart individuals - not teams. For a specific GDA example, what is it about FC Virginia that they dominate the Atlantic and NE? They are not outside 10 months of the year - it can get extremely cold in those areas. However they are tactically strong, they are quick on the attack, and efficient in the final third of the field while also doing a tremendous job defensively.

I think our training is diluted. I thing the quality of training in our area is terrible. I think we hold too much weight on wins and losses but not how the players are being prepared for each match up. Training 4 days a week and then getting blown out by 3 or more goals....I don't know something is awry and I do not feel blaming the quality of the players is where we need to focus. I think putting pressure on these clubs to elevate the team by understanding each players capabilities and honing in on where they lack is a missing factor. We are not holding them accountable for their product, but we are bashing each others teams based on each weeks results. The anger needs to be redirected - there needs to be transparency. We are consumers - we pay for a product. The product being the training and development of our young players. Yet we get angry amongst ourselves and not at the people who are directly responsible for the poor results. [/quote]

I like your retort to my above statement and how you supplement it with your comments. Training is the key and every club on LI is responsible for the decline of the reputation of soccer on LI. The soccer landscape has changed drastically in the last 5 years and the dust has yet to settle regarding the clubs and the leagues they choose to play. In addition, I blame parents regarding your transparency rgument because they have thrown themselves into the soccer landscape instead of staying in the cars and just being a parent. Too many parents have this high opinion of there daughters abilities and live vicariously through them. Parents have the mindset if you score goals and win games and play in the top bracket of a tournament then colleges will be interested in your daughter. That does not happen. Players with a high level of athleticism, speed and quickness is what attracts coaches not goals scored or wins playing in the top bracket. If you want to hold clubs responsible IBagree but until your deal with the parents factor they will continue to be a hinderance as well.

Why are we not talking about the clubs and what they are producing in terms of quality training? We are talking specifics about college and national team players...those are all great conversations, but how about the teams? Is this the problem with our region? Is it that we focus on the individual players and not how a team plays and is developed? I am trying to hone in on the why it is our kids go to showcases and tourney and when faces against other highly competitive regions we can't hold our own? What makes these other regions so dominant?

The lack of 10 month training facilities is a huge factor as indoor space is so expensive and rationed on Long Island.
One cannot compare the South, or Texas or Cali outdoor space to the Hofstra indoor facility (best available in Nassau) that is mobbed for space.... the futsal facility is recent and I wonder whether it will remain as a viable business venture and if enough players take advantage of it. I hoped with cheap interest rates we would get more indoor facilities built on Long Island and while there has been improvement we are still so far out from a true 10 month training regiment.

We are also a bit a wimpy.... Playing in Boston at NEFC Breakers academy a few years ago in March with freezing windy 20 degree weather, the NY players (including my daughter...) were dressed head to toe in undergarments and still freezing. In contrast, the NEFC players came out without leggings and in short sleeves and I knew we were going to get crushed as they were practicing outdoors through the winter in the colder Boston weather. Maybe we just need more turf and more heart!

This makes me wonder why do some clubs obsess over possession style and eschew direct attacking and athletics based soccer? If in the end the teams with direct games that utilize strong, powerful players at top speed are the ones that are winning then what is the point of pretending to be barcelona just to lose? And if colleges and even the USWNT use this direct game, why do we pretend that progressive out of the back possession style is something to aspire to?

It's the usual parents who have left for "greener" pastures, and teams that haven't even started training yet. It's easy to bash their last team. They think their kids should be a starter everywhere because they play mid level HS soccer. Or because the coach never gave them a chance. Newsflash - maybe your kid just isn't at that level - hey, that's ok, but why bash someone else??? Same ass clowns who whine and moan at games. You're gone, move on, stop asking old teammates how the team is doing. [/quote]



You are SO RIGHT everyone is dying to be on the FC Fury Albertson team. That is the 0 WINS 13 LOSES FC FURY GDA ALBERTSON TEAM... 0-13 YOUR ALBERTSON FURY GDA CLUB IS A JOKE!!!! HEY LOOK THERE GO THE WHEELS WHERE IS THE BUS???? ASK IF YOU CAN GET YOUR 5K BACK!!!!
[/quote]

These numbers are very telling I never imagined an Albertson run organization could go 0-13 through all their age groups. Those poor parents must be very frustrated with the situation.

There is a chat on the 2006 thread that says Albertson Fury GDA approached Lake Grove's 2006 team called the Phoenix to take over for the current Albertson Fury U14 GDA team. That may help them get more wins immediately, but then longer term what happens to the current Albertson Fury U14 GDA players?

you are comparing the wrong thing. being competitive is a statement of volume not quality. California is a big state. Texas is a big state. You have to adjust for numbers. There is not a drop off in my opinion. Games are won by athletes and relative bench strength.

and how many of said FCV player are now at the top 10 soccer programs ? The quality in our area is very good. Its up to players and families to take advantage of it as opposed to complaining because they lose on the weekend to a team that is more efficient on the day, or deeper. That does not = the training is bad.

If its as bad as you say, why are palyers from NY/NJ on some of teh top teams in the country and doing very well ? from seniors on down to Freshmen ?

I hold my child responsible for her performance. No one else. Thats where most fail. You want to look at someone else. You also seem to want to judge quality based on an entire team. Why? there is a BIG difference between TACTICAL efficeincy and using games to develop players.

Just a quick look at the Atlantic conf (PF not doing well, Virginia and spirit doing OK). Notable change is in Washington Spirit - Maryland U15 - it seems to be winning more games. Is it training or is it a wholesale change of team?

This year the Spirit-Maryland beat NYCFC and NYSC U 15 teams. How much have they changed since last year?

I think Spirit was one of the clubs that published exactly what they were doing, including a full $5000 training fee (including winter training and uniforms) which was a huge sticker shock for the unknown value. In hindsight, it's probably the same number that our coaches would ultimately command if you included uniforms and "side training".

Record:
http://www.ussoccerda.com/sam/standings/regevent/index.php?containerId=MzgzNDM0MA%3D%3D&partialGames=0
Last Year's record: 3 wins in 27 games
This Year's record: 3 wins in 4 games so far

And comparing last year's last game to this year's official roster:
This year's roster - 18 kids with only 8 kids from last year
Last year's roster - 21 kids (including 5 kids in the 2005/2006 age group)

We'll probably have to wait to the showcases to see how successful these teams will be. Did 10 kids leave because the training sucked, or were 10 kids replaced by better players at tryouts?



Well you are not looking at the right teams. If they were U15 last year they are U16 this year. And this year they did not beat NYCFC they lost 6-1 and they lost 8-1 to Sky Blue.



The link clearly shows they were U14 last year and they are now U15.

Because you are describing ECNL/College style games.

If you watched last years finals GDA and ECNL that was exactly the contrast you'd see.

ECNL: 3-4 bouncy passes, 50-50 ball, block tackle and a lucky outcome. Physicality and speed to the ball won 60% of the time
GDA: 8-10 passes on the ground, combination plays, off the ball movement. Possession and precision controlled 80% of the game for both teams.

Then, if you watched U20 women's world cup this year, you realized why the US didn't come out of the group.

Stop with the Albertson fury and fc fury. Leave them alone. Let the players develop and gain experience. When a specific club ( kids) are bashed, it’s clear the basher has an agenda. This is kids sports. It’s about the kids. It should not be something like a Giants fan saying the redskins, cowboys and eagles suck, because they are rivals. The bashers are pathetic. I like the higher level discussion that has been going on here. That’s productive, the bashing is not.

Of course it's not the kids' fault they're stuck in this mess that youth soccer has evolved into. Too many leagues and clubs fighting over players and the almighty dollar. Parents who buy into the marketing pitches by the leagues and clubs. Parents chasing the hope of a college scholarship. All I can do is try and get my kids through the swamp as best I can, figure out what is best for each child based on their goals, skills, etc. There's certainly plenty of options out there each with its own strengths and weaknesses. Pick what's best for each kid, but you have to accept that every choice will have warts. It's just how it is now.

Because you are describing ECNL/College style games.

If you watched last years finals GDA and ECNL that was exactly the contrast you'd see.

ECNL: 3-4 bouncy passes, 50-50 ball, block tackle and a lucky outcome. Physicality and speed to the ball won 60% of the time
GDA: 8-10 passes on the ground, combination plays, off the ball movement. Possession and precision controlled 80% of the game for both teams.

Then, if you watched U20 women's world cup this year, you realized why the US didn't come out of the group.




Ohhh so that is Albertson Fury GDA is 0-13 they simply can't compete because GDA is too advanced for them???


It will take them a season to learn proper football. Just look at the progress LISC and Spirit-Maryland are making. If you're not in it for the long haul, you're probably wasting your money.

The above poster is correct. It's about all the parents and players PR and IC have treated unfairly, lied to, and actually hurt their progress. It's about him bashing other clubs, stealing players by promising the world, just so other clubs wouldn't be as strong. Meanwhile, they haven't developed a top player from start to finish ever. It's about having ECNL tryouts knowing full well he was losing the ECNL, leaving kids stranded with little options. It's for enabling, and encouraging the crazy parents (which is by no means all of them) to bash other players. Including their own teammates. PR and the crew has brought about this reaction from people, by their own actions over the years.

It's obvious that the wheels have fallen off at the club. Couldn't happen to a more deserving group of adults. As far as the kids go, I hope they and their parents make an informed decision as to what is best for them. And realize there my be better options. But whatever they do, no one wishes anything bad on the kids.

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 10/01/18 02:42 PM

lets see if PR comes back to Albertson now that his NC team won it all to find the mess he left behind. He can't be happy with his team's terrible combined records. Even the 'A' fury teams are a combined 3-11-2. Not what they are used to. The albertson teams are O for the Fall and getting crushed. The GDA isn't going to like it when teams are losing 7-0 every game. No one wins with that.
What can PR really do though? Albertson couldn't even attract enough girls to make a full team. They usually have only 1 or 2 (sometimes none) subs at a game. He's not going to be able to train what's there to suddenly make them better. He lost a lot of his better players when he pulled his ECNL to GDA 'stunt'. Once you lose them, not easy to lure them back. Especially when your teams are performing so poorly.
Is this the beginning of the end for Albertson or just a bump in the road until things settle down. After all, this is the first year for his 2 GDA system. Oh wait, it's two totally separate clubs.......that just happen to practice on the same fields, similar coaches, same uniforms etc.

Just looking at the rosters from a week ago and this last week - the same kids were playing, and the same kids were not rostered. I think this is a troll.

II looked at the U16/17 teams for NEFC and NYCFC - they both looked similar as to previous week. For the U18/19 game - it does look like NYCFC does not get much participation fro its team members.Shame that NEFC has to travel to play against U15 girls.

ECNL and WCFC are putting enormous pressure on Kaz and the program, they want them to fold, or move to another facility. The 05/06 team is an example of that, they are purposely making it impossible for Kaz and the others to recruit from the WC pre-ECNL ranks. That’s what finishing next to last overall in ECNL gets you. But enough about them, let’s talk about the 02/03 team, a team that can/will kick your daughters teams arse, how come you don't mention them??

Please keep the conversation about the teams and keep my wife out of this. We were talking about NYCFC GDA U 14 team, how bad the team is, and how some teams hate to drive all the way to NY and play against a weak team.

losing by 1 isnt a weak team! besides one game, all other games were a loss by one or a win. plus the NYCFC u14 team is made up of mostly girls born in 2006. Not sure what you are speaking about "B TEAM" girls playing for NYCFC, you have any and all your info incorrect. brand new team , girls from ALL OVER, first season playing together I would say there are doing pretty daaaamn good!

Practice cones? Hmmm let me think about that? Your daughter NYCFC #10 was completely shut down when she played NYSC the last 2 times, Not 1 goal scored and maybe! MAYBE 1 shot off. She was our girls training cone for both games! Thank you! You have stated that your daughter is actually too good for that “BS 2004 player” haven’t you? The game winning goal for your team the last time you played NYSC (1-0 don’t forget) was SCORED by the little girl you called “a seeing eye dog for” you’ve also claimed that your daughter is the only player on her team with a “D1 soccer IQ”. Listen SOCCER MOM! You better think before you speak! There are no secrets in this little soccer community and your daughters former team hates you and your hubby! We’ll see you 10/13 and let’s see who becomes a trsIning cone

Just wanted to point out that PF at the U16/17 age group scored a couple of high-profile cross-division games. They will be playing teams in Northeast as well as Southeast divisions to fill in the schedule gaps (from PDA leaving I assume).

I wonder where they'll take her, when injuries heal and they find their daughter isn't the best anymore? They're running out of teams. Maybe Oakwood?

Heard about this thread, and now catching up. My daughter is on the 02/03 team, and I just want to say that most of our parents respect NYSC. I have done a survey, but based on the 5 or 6 that I talk to regularly, we look forward to our game against them, not because we want to crush them, but because we greatly appreciate good competition, something which is lacking in the NE GDA. We take every team we play seriously, especially NYSC since they are a quality team. Good luck to all...

Now that is losers excuse. Why a U14 team will be made up by 06 girls? So when you lose, that will be your excuse. Why would NYCFC think that they can make a DA U14 team by picking girls from 06 B teams? That is why a lot of geat 05 players refused to join the team. They refuse to practice with 06 girls that come from 06 B teams. Losing by 1 or by 10, the result is the same. You are still losing.

From a previous response, but so true:

ECNL and WCFC are putting enormous pressure on Kaz and the program, they want them to fold, or move to another facility. The 05/06 team is an example of that, they are purposely making it impossible for Kaz and the others to recruit from the WC pre-ECNL ranks. That’s what finishing next to last overall in ECNL gets you.

That’s for you WC daddy, hope you guys win more than 2 games this year....

Is this true? Please be more specific.

ECNL can definitely do this. Many of the girls on their ECNL rosters, both younger and older, prefer ECNL and want to stay and many of the parents have no interest in DA. I believe if ECNL forces WCs hand, ECNL stays and DA goes. They would lose many players to other ECNL clubs, plus WC makes more money on ECNL than DA. ECNL has the leverage.

Well the two games that they won, were against two teams that have lost all the games that they have played so far. I still don't know what NYCFC trying to prove by having 06 B flight girls on U14 GDA team. So next year any 06 girl that comes and plays for their own age group will be considered as B flight girls because their U15 team for next year is already built by 06 girls.

I guess that a CHILD isnt learning if they arent winning right ?? Sounds legit.
I can tell you one thing. My daughter is basically an 07 & just as strong if not stronger than majority of the girls on her current DA team, and the ECNL team she came from where she played up.
I'm not worried about B flights.and all that, as I've seen B flight teams with stronger and more skillful.players than many DA and ECNL players!!! If your daughter is passionate and loves soccer as much as mine does , works hard, is a TEAM player with a positive attitude ,has a good coach or trainer who pushes, motivates her and she is playing with and against other competive teams - she will always have the best opportunities thrown at her. B flight A flight who gives a Shhhhh°t!??? Some of you people are ridiculous, seriously.

Losing all the time means they are surviving. It also means that they are not able to perform to what is expected from them at that level. Not because your daughter is not a superstar, it is because she can't compete against bigger girls. If she is a superstar and she is losing and she is the superstar of the losers.

I love the fact that you spew this dribble about winning is bad and losing is good. What is your proof that losing teaches anything. The problem is you collect money for training get people to buy in the concept that losing doesn’t matter. Those kids and parents eventually disappear and you get a whole new flock of people that you try to convince all over again. What is your proof that what your doing works? Winning truley is not everything & get I that. But you need to come up with a new mantra and some concrete proof that what your doing makes a difference in their development. If you were a roofer people immediately know if you did a good job. In this setting the paying customer doesn’t know if you were right or wrong until it’s too late.

I actually wanted to vent about why the DA insists on making their showcases during the school week so the kids are missing 4 days of school at each one of these showcases. This is so counterproductive to their educational needs.

Everyone is learning, but it is not fair for 05 girls to practice with 06 girls. in this case, the advantage is only for the 06. The 05s practicing with the 06-s will not make them advance. To practice with weaker girls will make the 05 girls weaker. So next year they are going to form a U14 girls team consisted of 07s. Which stupid 06 girl will go and waiste her time with the 07s.

Every parent does what they believe is right for their child. We aren’t to pass judgment or critic their decisions. What works for your child may not work for theirs. And unless you’re paying for the program, it is no business of yours. All we want as parents is the very best for our children. If you have good tips, idea and experiences, please share them. Otherwise keep the negativity to yourself. Good luck to your player!

Sorry your confusing poster(s) - I understand the confusion and the assumption that my response may have been the previous poster(s) you were going back and forth with, but I am not. I actually just wanted to redirect the conversation to discuss anything other than "my team is awesome - yours sucks" rhetoric that keeps popping up here because some troll(s) like to incite poor behavior. We all have bigger fish to fry in the long run and frankly I am happy with my training, I see the development and all of that is specific to the needs of each individual player and family.

Locally these teams are "competitive", however once outside of our little bubble, most of these teams are not. Each team has some great talent, but there is a lack of depth and as such the teams perform somewhere between great amongst their local (for a lack of better word) rivals, but poorly against the southern, Midwest, and west states.

Regardless, IMO our energy would be better served in discussion on how the DA is running and if in year two, has anyone determined that this is the elite league and a way for those players who have a true passion for the sport to make their way to NT camps?

Let me be the first adult. I think they need to change the substitution rules, a player should be able to re-enter a game, simple. The No HS soccer rule is unbreakable, as that is the very definition of DA play. Also, the 4 training sessions a week is to much, 3X a week is enough if the training is tough, and structured.

Not the OP, but its more nuanced than that. Players improving is good. Players learn from wins and losses. You hit the nail on the head in that most parents have no clue how to measure development so the gravitate to the game result. They also look at things like "skills" learned - roulettes, maradonnas etc as evidence of development.

This is why many Clubs simply focus on the results and teaching meaningless tricks out of context, Development comes in 2 basic forms - Individual and team. A lot of clubs focus on TEAM development because that is where easy wins are. If you focus on set pieces, a solid collective defensive game plan that minimizes risk, you will win a lot of games. You may not develop players who perform at the next level.

It all depends when you consider the result to be the ONLY important thing. If a kid ahs aspirations to play at a higher level, then winning is important as it can re-inforce the desire to train harder, that what you are working in is getting results etc. Losing is also a great teacher though.

I would conclude by saying this - if you look at the kids who excel in College soccer, there are quite a few who come from teams with w/l records in the .400/.700 range. ie they lost a meaningful number of games in Club soccer. The big super Clubs are not producing more top end talent as a percentage of students than anyone else, even though they win more.

If winning is why you play youth soccer, then thats ok as well. We all have different goals and motivations. Im not trying to convince anyone either way, just explaining how i see it

another fallacy created by clubs to make more money. The ball has no idea how old you are. it should ALL be ability based regardless of age. and there should be 3 teams MAX, if development is the real goal. We all know it isn't

again, this is flawed thinking. The best players should be finding their way to NT camps irrespective of where they play. if you think the DA is the way t become the best player you can be, then great. NYCFC/WCFC have had a handful of YNT players over the years. All of them are varying levels of good and Im sure you will see varying degrees of success at the next level. People should forget about YNT/NT stuff and IF they want to improve, find the Club and program that makes that happen for them.

The rest is all BS

[/quote]

again, this is flawed thinking. The best players should be finding their way to NT camps irrespective of where they play. if you think the DA is the way t become the best player you can be, then great. NYCFC/WCFC have had a handful of YNT players over the years. All of them are varying levels of good and Im sure you will see varying degrees of success at the next level. People should forget about YNT/NT stuff and IF they want to improve, find the Club and program that makes that happen for them.

The rest is all BS
[/quote]

I am sorry you read that to interpret this is flawed thinking. I believe you may have misunderstood the intent of my post. I was by no means trying to make a case for NT camps being a way to determine a players development or ability. However, NT camps was part of the initial incentive for the DA and for some, may be not you or I, this incentive is something they would like to discuss.

Really I just wanted to redirect the conversation to discuss more so of what we all have in common if frequenting this thread - the DA.

So what if at all has changed for the DA? How has it, in year two, differentiated itself to establish it is the elite league? So again, has anyone noticed more opportunities for NT camps? Do you find the training and development of your individual player or team to have improved from the first year or from where you might have played previously? What really needs to change to make this league be really considered where top talent plays? Are families with freshman and sophomores seeing a clear path for their players who have a passion for this game to go to college? Are your DA clubs discussing with you the path to college or if your kid is interested, making their way to NT camps?

That's all - no negativity. Just trying to spark a dialogue that is more productive.

I love the fact that you spew this dribble about winning is bad and losing is good. What is your proof that losing teaches anything. The problem is you collect money for training get people to buy in the concept that losing doesn’t matter. Those kids and parents eventually disappear and you get a whole new flock of people that you try to convince all over again. What is your proof that what your doing works? Winning truley is not everything & get I that. But you need to come up with a new mantra and some concrete proof that what your doing makes a difference in their development. If you were a roofer people immediately know if you did a good job. In this setting the paying customer doesn’t know if you were right or wrong until it’s too late.



I ever said that. Of course none of it is mutually exclusive. Only said that is the attitude and that is where the harm to the system comes in. Families chase winning teams and won't stick around for struggling ones, even if in the long run what the coach is doing is great for development. One of my kids teams was god awful initially and some people did bail quickly. Thankfully the rest stuck with him and by the next year the team was playing great. But that doesn't happen often. Coaches lose their jobs, parents leave (and there's always another club out there to take your money), clubs scramble to fill rosters. Patience is a virtue and few soccer parents have it, I think primarily because few played the game themselves.

One of the few benefits of DA is the combined age groups. Granted, it's normally at the older ages, but that is what will push the younger players further along and faster.

No, in reference to my quote, once come out you stay out, that doesn't vary, that rule should change.

HS rule is not silly, its designed to keep the player involved with DA training for 10 months, so either you are DA, or you are not, players that leave and come back are not welcomed at our club, also they don't give waivers. Also, if you try to do both, you will caught, and booted from the DA.

At the older age groups injuries are very problematic, 3 days training is more than enough for my daughter, she also goes to the gym on her off days, she is ALLin for the DA.

Jeeez you people complain about everything.
You cannot possibly play high school and DA at the same time even if you were allowed.
You would basically be training every single day with some double days.
Pick one team and play there.
Unlimited subbing is annoying. Its a constant stoppage of play.
There are plenty of leagues that allow that so play for one of those.

4 days a week is not a lot. Maybe for 10 year olds, but 13-18 year olds can train everyday, and if they are playing school ball they are already training/playing in a game about 6 days a week and that's school ball. So for the guy saying 3 days max, are you going to keep your kid from the school team? I think rec team trains once a week, is that better?

To answer the other questions, the DA has moments. A moment is when you are able to sub and each team is allowed 3 moments. Halftime you can sub and its not considered a moment.
To help things along, DA now allows 7 subs (previously 5 in the older groups) on the girls side so that everyone at least has the possibility to step on the pitch but its not a given.
If you are looking for re-entry stick with NPL or ECNL where they reset their subs at halftime. If you want unlimited you can play for basically any other league.

Lots of options people, no need to keep beating a dead horse.

you cannot mandate where top talent chooses to play. Thats the flaw. ECNL made that statement as a MARKETING SLOGAN for a PRIVATE entity. The USSF cannot make the same claim. USSF needs to focus on scouting talent where ever it plays and working WITH existing leagues to establish best practices and better communication and dialogue.

Building a parallel league should have been a last resort. the fact they went ahead suggest that either they totally misjudged what was needed OR the relationships between parties are so irrevocably broken that there was no hope.

Whatever the reason, my first paragraph stands. The GDA is just another league with a different set of best practices. The motivations of those who run the ECNL is certainly different, but is going to appeal to more families than GDA will.

if you were at WCFC under Kaz and co, the only difference would be that you build year on year wthout the interuption of HS in the GDA. There is much better continuity and a GDA kid will benefit from in the long run ( we have not seen it yet obviously) if she chooses to put in the work.

Development comes down to the individual. If you mean team development, then I dont think that is a Kaz priority or goal. If you want more wins, Kaz is not the guy. There are other chances who will win you more games because that is the focus.

No HS is not silly. its an unwanted distraction to certain payers and IF you have enough who feel that way, then adding kids who dont later on is flawed. Does that mean every kid should skip HS? of curse not, but make your choice and stick with it. Many leagues allow HS play

We left ECNL for DA last year, and for my daughter, it’s been great, but if you’re not happy, then please leave. Bashing GDA on this forum will not change anyone’s mind, all it does is reinforce the fact that you have an agenda. Besides, isn’t it senior night tonight, you need to go cheer.

Where I disagree with you is that College coaches have been showing up to games, as well as coaches from the National team coaching scouts, that is a fact! As far as your term “top level” that is a very broad term so not sure what you mean by that.

My kid is playing because I think its the newest best soccer thingy.

My kid is playing because I rode the bench as a youth player, and I desperately want to relive my childhood through her.

My kid is playing because my wife thinks it a good idea, and the rich girl down the block plays too.

You pick the best answer.

All of us have to change our perspective. Why are our kids playing GDA?
Is it to improve and become the best they can,while having fun and maybe play college.


My kid is playing because I think its the newest best soccer thingy.

My kid is playing because I rode the bench as a youth player, and I desperately want to relive my childhood through her.

My kid is playing because my wife thinks it a good idea, and the rich girl down the block plays too.

You pick the best answer.






Just what we've been saying....typical troll

Went to see the local high school team with my daughter last night, wish I hadn’t...seems like even watching a HS school game has set my daughter back, ugh. Best decision we ever made, truly, as my daughter could probably coach those teams.

high school ball is not great soccer. but as every person with any common sense and any kid with any ability has stated, its not about the 'soccer'. its about being part of the community for 3 months. stepping down from your elevated perch in academy-world and playing the game with your classmates, the kids from town, having a scoreboard that actually lights up, a couple hundred of your schoolmates cheering loudly, despite all the horrible touches and missed shots and lack of any semblance to great soccer. its the off season for many. and its pretty solid fitness as all the good players end up camped out on the field all game long. some games are ok, once and a while a great game, and a good number just makes your stomach curl in soccer pain. I'm sure all your kids friends, teachers, principals all love the fact that you and her snub your nose at them thinking you're better. what, you could 'sacrafice" 3 months of your life to help the school, help her friends, the program? of course not, you were off getting your D1 scholarship between Sept 1 and Nov 12, those incredibly make-or-break 10 weeks.

Very big risk of injury especially if a good player is younger and an older goon from the other team gets frustrated and fouls her.

injury is the excuse that parents look at regarding playing school soccer. I have seen injuries in all levels of soccer regardless of skill level. I have seen girls just running on the field and go down untouched and tear there ACL. The fact is injuries occur regardless. Not sure what you mean by goons but at club games playing ECNL and DA I have seen opposing players go after the best player/scorer on a team as well. Is that a goon? Watching high school players try to head a ball is more frightening then what you call rough play. I would make it a rule in high school games that you cannot allow headers. Soccer is a sport that is highly technical and to succeed you have to have a high skill level. Soccer is also a physical contact game as well and players have to be and play smart at what ever level you are playing to "learn" how to protect yourself. This argment that high school has higher levels of injury than club soccer is nonsense. If you think so than you haven't been to many club games or showcase tournaments.

Also, MANY (if not all) of our current national team players played HS ball. You hear about it in their backstories, some have written books talking about it. We generalize all of these topics because what works for you may not work for others. We forgot the advantage that some of our families have - $$$. some families cannot spend the money it takes to play in either league. Doesn't mean they might not have a phenom on their hands. To them HS is a means to an end.

It is the previous posters OPINION that HS is not worth it. You're certainly allowed to have an opinion, but it is just that...

Shut up, you sound silly. You took your daughter to a DA game last night? Really? Where? No DA teams play on Wednesday’s. You must have been watching your daughters HS team. DA teams, even the lower ranked teams are head and shoulders above any of your local HS team. Stop being sour because your kid is not DA material. Come watch real soccer this Weekend! NYCFS vs NYSC -

how many of those NYCFC kids, at ANY LEVEL, are on ANY national team?? between zero and 1.

Spoken by someone who has never played the game. You're contradicting yourself. So you're saying a low skilled HS player knows how to properly head, tackle, tactically foul, etc? Not knocking those players at all, but be honest in your assessment. Many HS players are not as technically sound, and will unintentionally recklessly foul a player. And "learn" how to protect yourself on the field? Might as well not play at all if you can't play your game the right way.

I am not saying that at all. That is what your interpreting. My main point is that soccer is a highly skilled and technical game and when you get to the older age groups it becomes a more physical contact game as well. Injuries happen at any level. That is the point. In addition, I said heading a ball should not be allowed at the high school level. I have been around all these leagues for quite a few years and you making it sound as if all these teams play the game with a lot of skill and technical bility and sadly it's not true. It's parents like you that say, "play the game the right way". What does that mean? I have seen and heard parents yelling onto the field at there daughter "are you going to let her get away with that" after there daughter is "legally " pushed off the ball. The kid is then pressured to go after the other player rather than the ball. Is that the right way? Is that your popint? These teams are not technicall sound and will intentionally go out to play a physical game and be reckless at the same time. DO NOT make the argumnt that these teams are filled with players who are playing at a higher level.

Like I said some teams are def better than others. NYCFC has a great program. We live on Long Island so I took my daughter to watch one of those games.
NO it wasn't weds night lol, you need to learn to read man. But honestly it was like there was no fundamentals. Hardly and players on either team trapping the ball, making set plays, the movement was slow, there was crowding. I think there was like 5 incorrect throw ins. I mean, I just expected more from a DA team.

I support the program, but again, some teams are def better than others. That team will get crushed during the tournaments.

If you are one of Kaz or Freddy's favorites, you get the minutes, the promotion. If you're not , leave. Its average training,above average play, and a cut-throat unpleasant environment. We've met 3,4 families who've left, and while they might be biased, they seem to have all gotten minutes, and a few were actually in the top couple in scoring. Their main reason for leaving was the environment, the parents and players. No unity, no passion for one another. Just cutthroat attitudes. The sideline conversations, the other parents being insane. The one girl i know has a D1 invite and decided she wanted to have fun for her last 2 years of high school and so she's playing ECNL this year and high school.
This is a GdA thread, so its relevant. The grass has ugly nasty dry patches as well as some green ones.

Sorry Mr. Woodward, but your article is lacking. No one leaves a good team because you don't like some parents, you are there for you kid, not for you, and your sensitive nature. Is the environment competitive? Yep. Are some parents caddy and selfish? Yep. As far as favorites, its true they favor players, the ones who show up on-time to practice, never quit in a game, and put their team first. NYCFC GDA is not perfect, but its perfect for us...

Your last line is what has worked for me and my girls for years. There is no club/team/Coach/traIner/DOC/parents/teammates that are perfect, but you have to find a combination of thoe attributes that works for your daughter. There are so many variables involved along with personalties of the players that have to work best for each player and that is why there is som much movement from team to team. Parents who live vicariously through these young ladies and need for them to have instantaneous success or they go to the next club thinking it will be better but the truth is it's your daughter that count most and what team fits best for them based on there talent, skill and athleticism.

U16/17 game didn’t disappoint! Always a fun matchup. In all fairness NYSC out possessed NYSFC is the first have and a lack of depth was their downfall in the second. NYCFC has a ton of depth! So much so that even with their superstars getting shut down defensively they are able to pull out the win. As always it was a great game!

Depth is a sign of good recruiting...not so sure if it’s the sign of a good team. With all that talent they still struggle against showcase competition.

Really, good recruiting? Maybe, but they don't even have their full team back yet, give them a chance, and they will clobber you again, or next week...

Talk to Kaz about it, and tell us what he says, but be honest as I will ask him too. If I were to guess, I would say that your pal Chris K, cried and cried, until Kaz said fine, no more 05 ECNL girls.

Btw: it’s not a guess.

And you represent the rest of the country?? Btw it’s the same for the ECNL teams, that includes that crappy EM team that made the finals, we would smash that team, trust me. I don’t understand why you hate a local team, unless you hate yourself, which is probably the case.

The 05 ECNL team of WC is a better choice for our girls than the Academy. I wish my daughter stayed with her ECNL team. They are much stronger team with more talented girls than the GDA. I am tired of it and I can't wait this year will be over so things will change.

Sounds like the wheels are coming off the NYCFC 05 bus. Which is too bad, they seemed like a very talented team. I would like to see NYSC O5s play the WC 05 ENCL team.

Did you not understand, when I explained to you what happened?
The parts about WC not wanting to let go of their 05 ECNL players??
As a club, WCFC finished 2nd to last, can you guess why???

If you are truly unhappy, just leave during the winter. I am sure Chris & The Gang will welcome you back, as they are in open rebellion against GDA, but please stop complaining about it.

Truer words have never been spoken on this site. WC tried to warn all the players leaving that the DA was struggling and ECNL was the was way to go, but some parents wanted to believe That their daughters were better than the rest.

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 10/15/18 01:45 PM

I'm sure WC is putting pressure on the GDA team and on the girls to stay in ECNL. However, my understanding is that many of the WC girls chose to stay in ECNL because they want to play in high school. That's less relevant for 05s, but many players position themselves the year before. ECNL is a highly viable alternative for high level play and top level college recruiting. The Northeast generally follows the lead of PDA and FC Stars so families and players know their girls will get good exposure in ECNL. Make the GDA free like the DA and then you'll see families flock to GDA - with or without the high school rule. Then you can reduce the number of clubs in the region to make the games more competitive as the cost of travel for families with have a reduced impact.

Hahahaha, that’s not my point, but good-job twisting the narrative, you’re funny. WC is doing everything they can to sabotage the GDA, and that is unethical.

Worst example of leaving GDA is PDA itself. They slammed GDA as "not ready", with "horrible rules" and "not providing sufficient competition" for their girls. So where are their U13 and U14 teams now?

Yea, winning every game by a 3 goal minimum blowout, and so far allowing 1 and 2 goals total throughout the entire season. This is on top having 20+ players on each team. Every team they play against - throughout their division is poor competition. How do you justify taking your best players and best coaches and lowering competition for the sake of making extra money for the club. This is clearly not about any form of development. Coaches and DOC - what are you thinking?

Where have you been? Money drives this entire soccer industry regardless of club or league. This is not news or surprising unless you have had your head in the sand. There is only one way to make sense of girls competitive soccer around here and that is to follow the money.

Good thing it is great game or we would all leave this nonsense in a heart beat.

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 10/15/18 02:38 PM

Clubs like PDA & FC Stars do not lack depth. They had discussions with DA to afford these teams the same substitution rules as in ECNL and college and the league said no. While DA knows they took a firm hit in the NorthEast there were going to be no special treatment for these clubs. It was a firm no on the substitution rule of once out you cannot re-enter as well as playing high school. There have been exceptions made about playing high school but you cannot return to DA till the season is over. PDA was not going to have any of those restrictions. Instead ECNL gladly brought them back and is allowing them 2 teams at each age group. That is 42 players now playing ECNL at each age group. It is about money and to wear a PDA uniform to showcase events. That is the truth.

If they brought 05 girls from flight B teams, this GDA 05 team will perform better. The physical strength of 05 girls cannot be compared to 06 Girls. The stupidest thing they did, they opened the tryouts for the 06 girls and they accepted everyone that showed up. Always wait a year after the team is formed, watch what is going, then bring your daughter to be part of it.

It should also be kept in mind that the NYSC U14 GDA team which won this weekend is the NYSC 05 girls team that was ranked 1st in the state in GotSoccer last year without playing a lot of tournaments. They don't do Jefferson or Delco just some EDP cups and smaller tournaments. They also won the NY State Cup last year. They are a very good team that has largely been playing together for several years. While having 06 girls on the NYCFC team might hurt, watching the game it wasn't obvious who was 05 and who was 06. But it was obvious that the NYCFC haven't played together nearly as long as the NYSC team. Give the NYCFC team a little time.

You can mostly blame USSF for that. They're who created this league that is too big for the amount of talent and demand. It should be half its size. The remaining 20% of the blame is with clubs and parents who stupidly thought this league would be good. As soon as you saw what clubs were initially let in you should have known it was more about the money than quality. Then when several top national clubs left and very weak ones came in for this year? It's going to spiral out until they come up with some new-and-improved-uber league in two years, max.

Wait where is the guy who posted this gem...Yea, winning every game by a 3 goal minimum blowout, and so far allowing 1 and 2 goals total throughout the entire season. This is on top having 20+ players on each team. Every team they play against - throughout their division is poor competition. How do you justify taking your best players and best coaches and lowering competition for the sake of making extra money for the club. This is clearly not about any form of development. Coaches and DOC - what are you thinking?

The competition in GDA is so much better


Right here. PDA was pretty much guaranteed to have 2 competitive games each month in the Atlantic conference (PF, for example now has games against top Southeast teams as well). Now in ECNL they have ZERO. I would fully support creating a 2 tier GDA system with relegation so that certain mismatches such as Furries would stop happening. Would even support multi-age-group teams to match bio-skill-banding and improvement development. Great training and better level competition. I would probably scrap some of the substitution rules though, not enough evidence they they benefit in development of "better game intelligence".

Is it more problematic if I tell you the score was 9-0 at the half and the teams didn't bother playing a 2nd half?

That is sad for Oakwood. They have so many talented girls but no competition in North East. They have to fly to The other side of the country to compete against great teams like them.

Actually, that makes a lot of sense, as most HS programs will be wrapping up. Fury has plenty of good players who will be returning.

I guess that's how the team justifies this fall season. How else do you keep parents who are paying all that money from totally losing their minds.

lol the only reason OW is ranked middle of the pack is because of all the lousy clubs below them. Competition in the NE blows. OW got TROUNCED at nationals last year. Facts suck don't they OW dad?

Coaching...... and getting 3 or 4 of the better Fury players to move over you will do that. 2004's are certainly a respectable team now. The 2005's are a different story.

It's still early but they have made baby steps. Lots of HS players at different clubs will return next month. The real tests are how teams do at national events against tougher competition, as well as how teams do fall vs spring against the same competition to see how much progress is made.

I hope that parents of GDA players will see that this is NOT how you measure progress in a club. If my team loses 5:0 in the fall and then loses 4:1 in the spring - that's an awesome improvement from the score line, but would it be better for the team just to park the bus and hope for a 0:0 tactical tie?

This is not a zero-sum game. All clubs should be improving. The differences between top and middle clubs will probably remain for quite some time. Break it out into a couple of buckets:
- individual skills and individual effort/performance during the game
- team cohesion and collaboration in practice and during the game
- leadership role and social interaction
Coaching and support from parents are a huge factors in this type of an improvement.

So says the guru (insert eye roll). Clearly an ECNL troll, because this is a GDA thread so you really wouldn't need to address anyone as "parents of GDA players". Thanks for the great insight though - I was sitting here thinking UNC was going to give a full ride to my kid because her team scores a lot. (meant to be read dripping with sarcasm...)

Why not ask the Dad of the girl who WAS offered said scholarship to UNC? She is a GDA player, and probably much better than most, even better than the FURY NT player, IMO.

IMO, your annonymous opinion really doesn't matter when it cmes to evaluating players especially when you put them up against any NT players who were identified by a non biased NT Coach. The fact that you make comparisons shows your own insecurities about your self and your daughter when you have to draw comparisons. Girl was offered a scholarship to UNC...congratulations I hope she made a good decision about her future both as a student and as an athlete.

Hope Solo has only herself to blame for departure from the NT, it’s not her outspoken actions but rather he numerous legal, drunken and verbal actions that did her in. The risk reward was no longer worth it to the NT. Would you want her as your employee? Loved Klingenberg but Crystal Dunn at left back is an upgrade. Hinkle issue is more related to her teammates than her coach, they would rather not play with her. Everyone has a right to their own personal religious beliefs but you still need to play with your teammates. Uniform issue put her in a difficult position, nothing but respect for her for maintaining her beliefs.

There are also 2 PDA players from same year committed to UNC. Dont they play together on the same futsal team in winter? All are amazing players. I've never seen the Fury player in action - but other parents claimed she is a special kid - true playmaker. I wouldn't use "goals in the current season" as a real comparison.

No, females are held to a higher standard, its solely based on how many non-biased NT camps you have been called to, duh.

There are also 2 PDA players from same year committed to UNC. Dont they play together on the same futsal team in winter? All are amazing players. I've never seen the Fury player in action - but other parents claimed she is a special kid - true playmaker. I wouldn't use "goals in the current season" as a real comparison.


Thanks Grandma S., and no one is attacking her, she is a great player, a little small, but still pretty good....

Like the non biased US NT coach Jill Ellis ? Go ask Hope Solo, jaelene hinkle, Meghan klingenberg about that.



Hope Solo has only herself to blame for departure from the NT, it’s not her outspoken actions but rather he numerous legal, drunken and verbal actions that did her in. The risk reward was no longer worth it to the NT. Would you want her as your employee? Loved Klingenberg but Crystal Dunn at left back is an upgrade. Hinkle issue is more related to her teammates than her coach, they would rather not play with her. Everyone has a right to their own personal religious beliefs but you still need to play with your teammates. Uniform issue put her in a difficult position, nothing but respect for her for maintaining her beliefs. [/quote]

While I do not agree with Hinkkle I have respect for her beliefs and being true to her values. Definite double standard when Rapinoe is wearing the USA uniform and representing this country and she takes a knee during the playing of the National anthem and now instead when the anthem is played she stands there ‘stone cold” with no expression at all. Players have no problem with her protest for what she believes in but Hinkle is a different story? Sorry but Hinkle is being treated to a different standard.

So that is how it is? The coach will have crush on minor girls and send them to these national camps and make them feel like superstars. .

pretty much. despite the marketing of the NT camps to be exclusive to the elite players nationally...they are more political than you could imagine. the crazy thing is most parents don't know about them or the criteria on which to be evaluated. on top of that the clubs keep quiet on the topic as to not upset the financial applecart. they like to use the camps as incentive to keep badgering parents complacent and as a lure to bring in talent. the latter is why I think they keep it hush because it is my understanding that only a certain number of players can be nominated from each team.

the NT camps are also open to NPL and ECNL teams - so I fail to really understand what the DA is selling here...

Isn’t that used as the main criteria for the Ronaldo- Messi debate ?



Only because both players ave been the primary goal scorers for their teams and it is easy to market goals to dummies. Reality is that Ronaldo wasn't even the best player on his team for his last 3 years at RM. Their best player was always Sergio Ramos and now might be Modric.

hmmm, offended? I don't even understand why the reply seems to have been taken personally, shrug, guess you read my reply in an aggressive manner and replied as such. no shock as that seems to be a standard in this arena.

my point, as I feel the need to recite more clearly for those who read with emotion, is - what is the real incentive of the DA if the NT is not exclusive to their players?

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 10/18/18 07:26 PM

There is no doubt that the SSS player from NPL is the top player on the east coast.

- consistently invited to every camp
- outperforming the entire team at every position she plays in

I hate that kid, and clap every time she is on the field.

Funny how YOU know the reasons. Lol. Wambach didn’t have outside issues during her NT days?
Risk. What risk?
Reward. If Solo plays the NT has the best chance to repeat as WC champs

Ellis sacrifices Dunn who is a fantastic forward player to plug the hole in the defense
Funny Hinkle’s teammates on NC seem to have no problem playing with her.
Do you truly think Lavelle and Pugh like playing with the more senior players ?
Just watch their mannerisms on the field.

The Albertson Fury teams are simply 'B' teams playing in an 'A' league. Changes certainly need to be made. Just because they train 4 days a week is not going to make 'B' players into GDA quality.

Asking an honest question to current DA parents. If your local ECNL club offered fall training with occasional scrimmages for those who do not want to play HS soccer, would you consider returning to your club, knowing all you know about the level of DA games? I just looked at the box scores of some games and there are 04’s playing with 01’s during the fall season on many teams. How will these teams function next year when they go to single year age groups?

Funny also that you are providing your full “knowledge” of the situation without any proven facts. We all have opinions but unless you are Jill Ellis or one of the players on the NT it still remains just an opinion. Having Solo is definitely a risk,she has made some very poor judgement choices over the last few years. She has embarrassed the NT on several occasions not just one. JMO

P.S. My daughter would play HS soccer, like all the other little ECNL girls....

So if it is true, why is it harsh. I am not bashing the girls. Some girls simply aren't able to compete at this level and are better off playing at a level they can compete it. That is reality. It doesn't help anyone to have games so lopsided. It is not fun to lose 6-0 and it is certainly not fun to travel 5 hours to beat a team 6-0. If you look at many GDA games that is happening all over and the league needs to figure that out. Maybe ranking teams and having similarly ranked teams play more often.

The problem is its a National League, but there isn't enough talent to sustain a competitive balance throughout. Your suggestion would require MORE travel...

I’ve seen the ECNL U13 and U14 scores as well. Apparently the top PDA team (they have 2) is destroying each competitor by a 4 goal difference. Does that mean that ECNL level of competition is more suitable to Albertsons?

Yet it all worked find ten years ago before the mega-leagues came along. A lot of club chase badges just to avoid playing local teams - it brings too much scrutiny on them. Better to lose to a team three states away.

and your contributions to solving the problems are?

Make the league half the size. Yes more travel (but there can be creative solutions). Not only will the quality of the competition improve so will the rosters. Focus on areas where there aren't many good ECNL clubs. Prove yourself and create demand. Right now there's insufficient demand because ECNL has a similar product and less restrictions.

Although true, still harsh, completely inappropriate, and unhelpful in this discussion. If you are unhappy then leave during winter, like the moronic NYCFC u14 parent, as bashing young ladies is douchy Le blanc....


So if it is true, why is it harsh. I am not bashing the girls. Some girls simply aren't able to compete at this level and are better off playing at a level they can compete it. That is reality. It doesn't help anyone to have games so lopsided. It is not fun to lose 6-0 and it is certainly not fun to travel 5 hours to beat a team 6-0. If you look at many GDA games that is happening all over and the league needs to figure that out. Maybe ranking teams and having similarly ranked teams play more often.


Why>>>??? Because all you are doing is creating additional angst, not solving anything, come up with something positive, I am tired of all this negativity.


We have thousands of players on LI. Have a quality LI league with multiple divisions and dispense with all this ridiculous travel. Save us all a lot of time and money and the kids will learn the game just fine. No other country teaches soccer with all this nonsense.


Small fish for the small pond, others aspire to greatness, but you would not know.



The soccer environment is very difficult at this time. Too watered down. There needs to be some consolidation. Hopefully US soccer is able to put a plan in place to have a system where all levels can develop.

I would argue most of the Alby Fury teams are filled with C and below types, or under aged kids playing up, just to fill a roster spot (and collect a check). Shame on Riley for selling this nonsense and bigger shame on those parents buying into it

First fault is with USSF for letting the club in to begin with. There's too many clubs in the area and not enough talent. It was a money grab on the part of USSF and the club. Secondary fault with the parents who didn't do their research or look at the club (it was in the basement last year in a different league - why would it do well in a harder one?) the landscape objectively, or objectively assess their child's ability to compete in said landscape. I feel for the players who are now stuck in this situation with few options for the rest of the year. The adults in their lives have done them a great disservice.

They'll pick based on the quality of coaching, location and fit with the player's goals. It's a very different scenario than with BDA where the MLS clubs are free and the non MLS clubs reduce their fees by a much larger rate

I am not affiliated with that club so I am responding objectively and am not going to participate in criticizing or defending the club . YOU DO NOT FEEL FOR THOSE PLAYERS. YOU ARE A TROLL.
If you are a parent,and not merely a troll, you have no right to question the parents of those kids judgements. Parents try to do the best for their kids. You do not know the reasons why the families are participating in that club. All parents make mistakes. No one is perfect. We try to do the best we can.

Terrible field yesterday at HBC, worst we have played-on yet as a DA member. Even the crappy fields in Maryland were better! How does a club like Fury/Alberston, not secure 1 turf field for 4 games on all of Long Island???? Oh how the mighty have fallen....

I am not the Alberston FC is a C team guy, my issue is with the field quality yesterday at HBC. I am a NYCFC parent who had to hold his breath the entire game, because I was afraid the one of the players, not just my own, would seriously injure themselves. Whoever chose that field, you are a disgrace to soccer, and your club, and your English accent cannot save you.

Sorry but we all are questioning it, not just the poster. The kids are getting screwed. They (and their families) were sold a bill of goods by USSF and (some) of the clubs. There may be a few that are happy and if so, good for them. But not many are not. There will be more departures of clubs and players the end of this season.

did you actually tie fury 1-1 in the 16/17 group? I looked at the game report. looks like you had 3 subs you stuffed in the 60 to 70th minute. i guess you have no faith in those subs. and rightly so. you gave up the lead late to be humbled with a tie.

That is what the poster was responding to.
Regarding the fields- to claim that the club picked these fields to have a tactical advantage is stupid. You do not know the circumstances. Does fury practice on grass? I don’t know just asking? Etc.
Now, regarding the other posts check out the actual scores. Again, just asking.

A lot of misinformation and pure hate being posted. Obviously a reason. Hum. I wonder?

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 10/21/18 06:38 PM

Goes to show you the mentality of a group of parents on NYCFC to say and think that Fury made a tactical decision to play on a grass field yesterday. The field was regulation size with regulation goal posts. Both teams played on this field. There was no advantage to either team and the game ended in a draw. End of story. When college coaches watch players they look for players that adapt to the environment and field conditions and do not complain but “play on” regardless of the field conditions. That is a true test of character. Enough already from these NYCFC parents who think these kids walk on water. And stop feeling so bad for Fury players there doing fine thank you and saying over and over again that Fury parents make mistakes and doing a disservice staying with the club. My kid was asked and could have gone to any other club on LI and made the decision herself to stay. Her decision, her choice.

You guys really are a bunch of d!cks. The girls enjoy playing with one another. The coaches FC Albertson are excellent. Maybe it's your kids who are the C players in LIJ and NYCSL . No is stuck anywhere. Hope your shameful selves rot in hate.

Come on!’ NYCFC was sabotaged!! They can only play on fields that resemble Wembley Stadium, served their Powerade in the finest Baccarat, coddled and constantly Praised by all surrounding breathing bodies. Upcoming showcases should be fun if you can’t even beat Fury.. wow

I agree, you have to adapt, but why play of a lousy grass field, this is GDA not LIJSL...

NYCFC sad truth is, you’re going down!! And Not because your girls aren’t amazingly talented but because they play for a coach that is washed up! Does he have connections? Sure. Is he a good trainer at this level? Nooo way!! After all this time training under Kazwreck Tambi your girls should be dominating. NYCFC should have no loses, no ties and by far highest goals scored and fewest goals against. That’s not the case. In fact, you’re crashing and burning right in front of our eyes. You were much stronger last year. Next year will be even worse..

Do you think that Neymar gave a F*** what kinda field he was playing on? A true player can adapt and play on any field. Stop with the lame excuses. The best players in the world played barefoot on horrible dirt fields. Keep Raising your daughters to make excuses up
For playing poorly, that’s not gonna fly in college..

I agree, you have to adapt, but why play of a lousy grass field, this is GDA not LIJSL...


Another snobby soccer elitist proudly shows their ignorance. I used to Coach in LIJSL when it was the only dominant league and I have reffed for all the leagues that are around now so it does not really matter what league it is or what level. But to suggest that only GDA or any other premier league or any league deserves better fields than others is selfish and elitist. There are beautiful fields both natural and turf all over the metropolitan area and there are fields far from perfect. How do I know that? Because I know that I have seen more fields in the last 20 years than many people and I have run on fields that are a little rough. But the beauty of the beautiful game is that BOTH teams have to deal with playing on the same field and it is not possible to have an advantage over another team on a less than perfect field.

So whether you are playing intramural, recreational club ball, or premier league level, all players deserve a decent playing field. Apparently the Coaches and Referees had no problem with the field and felt it was safe enough to play on. That is why this game you talk about was indeed played ont whatever field they played on.

Absolutely. 2 of the GDA showcases are played on grass. Only some of the fields are top notch. Apparently last year PDA were called ‘turf queens’ by the US Soccer scouts for not being able to adapt to grass. Is there a video from the game?

Not FC FURY. get your facts straight. Everyone needs to stop the misinformation. And they have been playing short handed.
I find this board useless. It’s all about spreading rumors to give parents anxiety so they will join YOUR. Club and not the competitors.

Re: USSF GDA Fall 2018/Spring 2019 - 10/22/18 04:25 PM

I do not understand, why are they (FURY) shorthanded? NYCFC was not short handed. I do not see other teams traveling to play FURY and they are shorthanded. Why were some girls allowed to play their HS seasons and others not? That alone shows how much of a joke this program is. Everyone talks about how bad HS soccer is and this league was created to help the top girls avoid playing there. However, for some reason the girls in the FURY program got to choose to play HS ball and come November they can return to play with FURY.

Before you respond there is a difference no there is not. FC Fury and Albertson FC Fury are both run/owned by Paul Riley, train at the same facilities and use the same staff. As the old saying goes, "You can put lipstick on a pig but at the end of the day it's still a pig".

You keep blaming HS. But HS is not the reason 20 plus players ran away from Albertson DA teams. You are going to have to take another look at why this happened.

my anxiety? lol. Clearly you have anxiety. Don't put your thoughts about yourself and your child into other peoples mouths. If you have an issue with a club or particular person OR YOUR DECISIONS , perhaps you should discuss your issues with a therapist and learn how to channel your anger and other issues constructively.

But he did a good job shuffling his A team players around so he could actually have a roster to play...wondering why he coached only the FC Fury games but failed to attend any of the FC Albertson games? I wonder how long he sticks around either team to make any impact to the performance.

So YOUR "club" (under the same umbrella) is 1-16-3 -61 GD across all four teams. Sure, better than Alby but still terrible. Facts.

Not FC FURY. get your facts straight. Everyone needs to stop the misinformation. And they have been playing short handed.
I find this board useless. It’s all about spreading rumors to give parents anxiety so they will join YOUR. Club and not the competitors.
It’s a joke and the posters are pathetic.


So YOUR "club" (under the same umbrella) is 1-16-3 -61 GD across all four teams. Sure, better than Alby but still terrible. Facts.


Ahhhh, the score of the 18/19 is incorrect, 1-1 was the final result.

Everyone talks about how bad HS soccer is and this league was created to help the top girls avoid playing there. However, for some reason the girls in the FURY program got to choose to play HS ball and come November they can return to play with FURY.

Before you respond there is a difference no there is not. FC Fury and Albertson FC Fury are both run/owned by Paul Riley, train at the same facilities and use the same staff. As the old saying goes, "You can put lipstick on a pig but at the end of the day it's still a pig".


You keep blaming HS. But HS is not the reason 20 plus players ran away from Albertson DA teams. You are going to have to take another look at why this happened.


Anyone who has looked into the club know EXACTLY why those players left. News Flash: There aren't many players coming to play for Fury after the HS season ends. Despite what they said.

Soccer is played by 11 players on the field, unfortunately you have parents from NYCFC & NYSC who think they are the 12th player. They yell at the players (there own kids and the other team), yell at the refs & linesman, yell at other parents, yell at the coaches and then come on here to bang there chests that “they” are in first place or “they” are the best in the NE. This also happens with ECNL and it’s disturbing how much parents are front and center at these games and make it about themselves rather than watching the players. Really sad but it will never change seeing these parents who live vicariously through there kids and do not accept when there kids do not live up to there expectations.

Fury parents are the most obnoxious parents both on the sidelines and in this forum. I’m sorry you feel the need to project your anger on NYCFC and NYSC parents. Bring your daughter to a try out. The grass is so much greener.

Thus far

U15s in order NEFC, NYCFC, Seacoast
U17s NYSC, NYCFC and Oakwood
U19s NEFC, Oakwood, Fury - however several teams have played very few games so those rankings will likely change.

The fact that OW and now Seacoast, two very mediocre NPL clubs, even have teams in the top 3 tells you all you need to know about NE GDA.

My daughter played against fury on Saturday in the U 14 Game. Let me tell you I enjoyed hearing the whole car ride home ( after a win 👋) how annoying the other teams parents were. Literally the whole time yelling at her and her teammates for so called “ playing dirty and fouling “ !!!

She said that they were such a distraction to their own daughters and she even felt bad. kids hear everything people!!!! Maybe stuff your mouths with socks before the whistle blows and these teams might actually be able to put a ball in the net thank you

Actually not that it makes a drastic difference but it was 4-1 and NYSC girls and parents understand that you work harder when you take a loss and remain humble when you take the win. You are an embarrassment to your daughter and the club she plays for. Congratulations on whatever place you’re in and I speak for everyone at NYSC when I say Good luck to your daughter and NYCFC!

You’re a NYCFC troll. Let’s talk about how your big NYCFC Team tied Fury?! And how your big NYCFC LOST to NE? NYSC isn’t on here boasting but the board speaks for itself. Bad day for our girls against a really good team. It happens. But what’s your excuse for falling wayyy short against teams that you claim don’t even belong with DA status! We all heard fury was the better team this weekend!! Explain that?! Oh that’s right! You were sabotaged by the fields!

I think that we all need to shift the focus from 1-2 of these trolls. This thread has been totally catered to them and that is exactly what they want. Let the playing continue to "do the talking" and we can all see where we land come June. I wish much success to all of the teams the rest of the Fall and hope that they all have a great showing in Florida to show that we do indeed have a great amount of talent here in the NE.

All you GDA snobs have been rude to all your teammates, to your previous coaches, in the way you felt you were better the way you wanted to tell everyone how she loves the girls but really just needs to be with better and stronger ...which was code for your kid and you are self-inflated . I could understand going to ECNL as it was established. But how could you be so foolish to buy into the marketing pitch of these guys like PR, and Kaz Tambi all hands out looking for your $8000 per year. Is it good soccer? its good soccer. but its the same soccer the ECNL kids play, its the same soccer great NPL teams or National league teams play. no better, sometimes worse. some of your kids come from teams as not the previous squads top players. and you hated that. it made you ill. so this was your chance to prove by wearing that fancy jersey, that you were better. but most of the best stayed behind and got better. and you suffer inferior training and time slipping by. a 10month league that is considered by most coaches as a failure, coming up woefully short of stated objectives. those whacky substitution rules, letting some kids play high school but not others. why do your rosters only have 14, 15 kids? isnt it the end all be all? and if you only have 14, 15 kids, why are your subs only get 20, 30 minutes a game?

Sorry, you're obnoxious, self-righteous, egotistical attitude has built an army of folks who, frankly, just love seeing your stuff coming up short and enjoy watching you be the test pigs wasting money and more importantly missing out on great opportunities .
it ain't 2 trolls. its like a hundred who are happy to see you wallowing. You get what you deserve. funny thing is, you're so foolish you'll go all the way down this road without the balls to pull the plug. at least some of your ex-teammates were smart enough to realize its a dud and cut their losses.

We are absolutely surrounded by trolls.

Says the troll who does not have a girl playing DA but still follows it on-line.

Tough to try paint everyone with the same brush. But I do think my daughter and her teammates are better than the girls that decided to stay to play for their towns and the training they have received since then has only widened the gap. NPL/ENCL/DA all have their warts but you just do what you think is best for your kid. I don't begrudge anyone for their choices. My daughter is happy, she plays with a good group of girls, the parents are fun to hang around and along with developing into good players they tend to win a lot more than they lose.

Sorry you and your army of trolls are so bitter. Why not just enjoy whatever experience your daughter is having, believe me, we are not sitting hear thinking about what ever town team she plays on.
