A Few Notes on Competition:

  • PDA is sending a total of 16 teams!  Times that by $1100 for U15 and $1250 for U16 and up = out to $19,400 spent on just entry fees to Jeff Cup.  I will take that in American Express miles please…
  • A minimum of 2 NJ Teams represent the top flights in every single group including 1 team in every single group be played this weekend.  Now let’s show them what we are made of!
  • Here is a sample schedule of PDA Splash U16 to show the quality competition in this event…   They play the #3 team from Ohio, #1 from home state Virginia, and #1 in Massachusetts.
  • The Friday, Saturday, Sunday format of this tournament which is recommended by USYS as only 1 game is played each day is a great way to protect the players.  However, if you are from NJ and get stuck with a 9AM Friday game (see MFC Spurs 01), it is almost unfair, and the travel expense does add up.
