The question is which program is better-the LIJSL PDP or Long Island Rough Riders Premier (now rebranded as "pre-academy") for a girl U14.
the rough riders appear to have partnered with the long island sc. if your goal is for your daughter to make that team then the rough riders would provide her with more exposure. if your goal is for your daughter to improve her skills i agree with the poster who says it doesn't matter. they are both pretty good training and your daughter will improve with more time on the ball. go wherever you think she will have more fun and try harder.

While I admit to no experience with RR, we have been very happy with PDP for 2+ years now.

You could try the center of excellence. She will need to be accepted into the program but I think you could arrange to have her seen. It is just training but she could see if she enjoys the environment. I am not sure what the fall schedule is or if they have space. Check nycsl web site under pdp program. Have found them to be responsive to questions.

The answer is both, or neither. To be honest, there really isn't much different between various competent programs. Touches on the ball are touches on the ball. The by far biggest factor is the effort and motivation of the player.

Why jump into ECNL or GDA until you have at least tried playing in a more competitive environment and see if it is for you? Just because EM, Albertson, and probably LISC and fury gdas at some age groups all need more paying players, does not mean the players need them. The travel required for those teams is a very different commitment of time and money.

They have rebranded their premier, all year round supplemental program as pre-academy

I'll assume your one of those " my kid has seniority at the club" parents.
If the club is good and has ambition they should be looking for new talent every year.
To the OP. Try out for teams. It's a great experience for your child. Have her work on her game at home. That's what makes the difference.

Some teams drop kids for better player, but virtually none do. Even at high level, teams will not drop the 20th best player for a new 15th best player, you need to be better than that to kick an existing player off a team, if that happens at all.

Most teams also have open roster spots to pick up great talent at any time, ECNL can have 30 players, GDA 23+. Not all can play each game, but you don't need to cut from bottom to add a good player to the top. They just warm the bench more, get annoyed and finally leave, saves the agony of cutting.

But, in the above post was the best piece of advice to give. "Try out for teams. It's a great experience for your child." Do this. Trying out is different than playing, and a skill that needs to be learned. Both in soccer and in life (think interviews).
