Beautiful Florida weather for the Cup.Actually 2013 Blue team was allegedly missing 4 good players and they beat the Long Island Yellow jackets easily.

Capital Blue 2013 cruised to an 8-2 victory over the Yellow Jackets, paced on offense by Besser Dyson (3 goals), Margaret Tucker Fogarty (2), and Carly Reed, Layne Vorhees, and Riley Christopher with 1 each. The Capital defense played particularly well. Wyatt Whitley, assigned to cover YJ and U-19 National Team attacker Courtney Fortunato, held the YJ star scoreless. Capital had no trouble moving the ball down field in transition, winning almost all the 50-50 balls and rarely, if ever, turning it over. It appeared Capital again playing like the team it was when it won the National Club Championship early in the summer.

Yellow Jackets were playing with a mixed team. YJ had also played 4 games in a row that day and Capital had only played one game in the morning. See how it it is this summer when they play each with whole teams.

Many questions are being asked about the 2012 Blue team - the one handled by Carol Rose herself (of reported Northport High School fame). Are these kids really the ones getting the top attention from college coaches?

Look at last year's recruiting class that is listed - supposedly, 53 candidates were placed. This year's teams have 25, 31, and 24 players per squad. This picture rolls up to about 60-70% placement from these Yellow Jacket teams with lower rates on the red team and higher on the blue/gold teams. Given that the fees are the same, doesn't this all imply that the red team is really about supporting the club on the revenue side without the same commitment given to blue/gold recruiting?

Girls are assigned a team based upon skill level. The Blue team has the best players but not every girl is going to play for the top D1 school. There are lower level D 1 plus D2 and D3
programs in which girls from all YJ teams come from. The idea is too give as many girls as possible an oportunity to play in college. With this in mind, the YellowJackets are very successful in achieving this.

Successful at making money It's all about the money.. Tryouts are a joke. The teams are predetermined for the most part. the teams don't even intermingle at tryouts. the chances of that girl on red moving up...slim and none. save your money

That list for 2011 is incomplete and has not been updated. I know of 3 other kids that are committed and not listed. There rate is much higher and those other numbers are just tryout results.

I bet they place over 60 of 2011 class that had 3 teams. How many others could there have been maybe total of 72 guessing 24 per team. Actually very good odds!!

They are doing a great job placing these kids!! Your question relating to fees/committment is not valid. Oh and I believe they have 5-6 2012 commitments already too. They are off to a good start
