NJ parent here - Baltimore deserved to win and their performance the entire 2 tournaments showed it. Their defense was relentless and super high pressure and they dominated the draw across the board. Their shots on goal were blistering and nearly impossible to stop. They also did all the little things right - TEAM play, very few turnovers, no bad passes, first to the GBs. Their girls were bigger, faster and more athletic. Kudos.

How dare you Defense and Ground Balls as a reason for winning? Going to goal is what matters, putting the ball in the net is what's important.

Your club coaches should be pushing them out. If they aren’t, they’re not doing their jobs

Depends what your looking for.. there is a NESCAC event next weekend..
Check REVevents for their Valentine’s Day clinic in Rhode Island

It would be nice if the clubs pushed events out to you... but at the end of the day be proactive.

☝🏻This is gold. Picking 15 midfielders to make a team isn’t gonna work !

My daughter plays defense, she enjoys the back, and is good at it. Let me tell you how annoying it is when the coach needs to throw a girl back on D that isn’t D, therefor she doesn’t know the plays or the slides. She popping 8 meter fouls all over the place and losing her girl. Defense doesn’t get enough credit. Blah

The 2021 class of defenders is one of the best in a long time. Look at the girls from Baltimore, LI, NJ and PA and where they have committed to. The Baltimore UA team had 3 defenders that played on the UA team together for the last 3 years. They just don't give up a lot of easy shots, are all very active and athletic in the clearing game and communicate very well. Makes a huge difference.

It is true defenders are getting recruited at that position more than ever before. Many coaches still recruit midfielders and turn them into defenders. But if your daughter can excel at defense, it is by far the easiest path to D1. Position not sought after like the others and athletic money not as good, but it is more common to see defenders picked up for defense lately. Not knocking anyone's daughter for playing defense, that being said, midfielders still make better defenders, while on the field playing defense as a midfielder, or switching over to the position. Typically faster, more athletic, better stick skills, intuition etc... Look what happens to midfielders that can't hang at that position on any team, they get moved and displace defenders and even attackers. You never see it the other way around.
