    A few tend to move up every year. 08's & 06's have had players moved up this year I believe.

      Sign of a well run club that actually trains and values all of their teams. Makes the RL team more attractive to kids, which then leads to better players willing to take an RL spot if there is a chance at promotion.

But honestly Bucks is so bad, delco is getting better but not there yet and realistically neither are very good - so not much competition for PF.
        Continental Delco and PF were close before PF moved over to the DA. Results between the two clubs were pretty close and competitive the last year PF were in ECNL with Continental out performing PF and FCB in a number of age groups. College placement at Delco was also very good. Delco had closed the gap, but things collapsed quickly after Delco hired the bothers from Delaware and the guy from Georgia to run the club. Those hires proved to be a massive set back, coupled with some good people leaving Delco at that time. With Westmont and Spirit relationships over, Delco doesnít have a steady stream of players coming into the club and will never catch PF. PF is the first choice for players from both Collegeville and Downingtown. FC Bucks are only struggling because of poor management over the past five years, but with the right hires could bounce back and become the second-best option for female players in the area. FCB should be doing better on the boys side but they just have not made adjustments to have success. Right now the Union and FC Delco academies are the best options for boys with PF as a close third. PF are still doing really good things on the boys side, but it is tough when Delco boys are just a wing of the Union. PF has done a nice job of being a club for everyone, and they offer quality at every level. The gap between PF and all other clubs in EPA is a massive one.

            PF regularly give out scholarship money to those in need. And it's far from $3.5k 'just to join up'

              Penn Fusion should be the equivalent of a Pennsylvania PDA given the local competition but they have squandered whatever advantage they once had and have fallen well off the benchmark they set 5-10 years ago.

                Do you realize how many people live within an hourS ride of PDA compared to PF?

                For a Philly area club to become a national powerhouse the other two need to drop ecnl and the last club standing needs to play in a central location i.e. the proving grounds or down along I95.somewhere.

                  I agree with you.

                    PF boys teams arenít a close third by a mile. Much better boys programs at Ukies and PA Dominion.

                        What are you talking about? Currently kids at UNC, UVA, Rutgers, PennState, Georgetown, Duke; not 5 yrs out. Several recently graduated playing nwsl and abroad. Not 10 yrs out.

                          Nearly every PennFusion team (before going GDA) were in the championship division of ECNL for post season play in nearly every age group. Meaning top two of division.
                          No Delco team in top/championship division for post play.

                          When in GDA, PennFusion in championship divisions for post season play; top 16 overall in the entire league.

                              Where did the kids actually play to develop? Most of those kids arrived there late in the club careers (particularly the kids at Rutgers and UNC).

                              Some of the kids are not even playing at those schools listed. One thing to go there, another to get on the field.

                                Right, that was a few years ago. Things have changed.
