2017/2018 GDA Club Standings

SILVER ELITE
Any chance we might again get the combined "club scorecard" list with all the teams for each age group mixed together and the clubs ranked by strength of all teams?
Would you want to see that with or without U14 included? I wasn't planning on doing an updated RPI for U14 otherwise.

SILVER ELITE
U14 GDA RPI (games through 6/12/18).

Surf the tops in So Cal but Legends and Beach impress (a big reputation boost for both clubs). SW well out in front as the strongest division at this age group.

SILVER ELITE
Average combined RPI ranking for each DA club (games through 6/12/18)

Thoughts:
  • Legends really impresses with all 4 teams in the top 15
  • Surf and Slammers with 5 outstanding teams between them
  • Beach outstanding at the younger ages
  • LAGSD good, but not great, all around
  • Real So Cal is good but was brought down in the rankings by their U15 team
  • Blues with 2 good teams and 2 weak teams (focus on ECNL shows)
  • West Coast FC competitive at all age groups (but not outstanding in any of them)
  • LA Galaxy disappoints given their fanfare
  • Remaining 4 clubs have some work to do (with Albion's U15 team being a bright spot)
  • Tophat's average ranking of 3.75 is INSANELY good!
  • FC Dallas' 2 #1s and 1 #3 may be even more impressive.
  • The exodus of the (5?) clubs from GDA doesn't seem that big of a deal looking at these rankings. Sky Blue - PDA is the biggest departure at #6. [Edit #1: Per @terrence's post below #10 Concorde Fire and #11 Eclipse Select are leaving too, so more of an impact than I initially thought. PSV Union out too per @Kicking it. Edit #2: LAFC Slammers now out of DA too, so that's 4 out of the top 11 clubs.]
  • Southwest has the best average ranking for all age groups combined. Take that Frontier!!!

Wow, outstanding unbiased evaluation of overall team performance of DA clubs! Useful, results-based information that really throws shade on NoGoal and MAPPIE's critical assessment that Legends did not deserve ECNL status "because they hadn't won a national championship". That was not the reason Legend's application was denied year after year...this club wide performance is why the original 8 ECNL members were afraid to include Legends FC. Sad, but true. Congratulations to the coaches and players of LFC for a job well done in the toughest conference in the DA.

#10 Concorde Fire and #11 Eclipse Select are dropping DA for ECNL as well.

Average ranking for each DA club (games through 6/12/18)

Thoughts:
  • Legends really impresses with all 4 teams in the top 15
  • Surf and Slammers with 5 outstanding teams between them
  • Beach outstanding at the younger ages
  • LAGSD good, but not great, all around
  • Real So Cal is good but was brought down in the rankings by their U15 team
  • Blues with 2 good teams and 2 weak teams (focus on ECNL shows)
  • West Coast FC competitive at all age groups (but not outstanding in any of them)
  • LA Galaxy disappoints given their fanfare
  • Remaining 4 clubs have some work to due (with Albion's U15 team being a bright spot)
  • Tophat's average ranking of 3.75 is INSANELY good!
  • FC Dallas' 2 #1s and 1 #3 may be even more impressive.
  • The exodus of the (5?) clubs from GDA doesn't seem that big of a deal looking at these rankings. Sky Blue - PDA is the biggest departure at #6.
  • Southwest has the best average ranking for all age groups combined. Take that Frontier!!!

Perhaps this was mentioned elsewhere in this thread but there are a couple of things to consider here.

1. Several teams moved kids up in age throughout the season especially down the playoff stretch. Slammers for example had tw u15 studs up all season and only brought them down to help out. Many others had kids playing up LAG, WC and Surf as well. So we never get a true assessment of how each true-age team is doing. I believe LAG had at least an 05 playing up at 03. Can’t imagine what she’d do at her own age group.

2. The schedules were not equal. Anyone who drew Buringame was gifted 6 points. It definitely had an impact in some of the outcomes between Northwest-Southwest and Northwest’s matchups in showcases.

3. Unless this was factored in, Northwest’s winning percentage is brought down quite a bit because of Burlingame, and the leagues where team feasted on the free points benefited.

These are incremental calculation changes for the most part but still deserve to be mentioned.

Excellent work on the breakdowns.

The leading scorer on Real’s 01/02 team was an 04!

LAG did not have an 05 playing 03. They have 2 05’s playing 04. One 06 playing 04. And one 04 playing 03.

Thanks. I thought the beast mode girl was an 05 on the 03 team! Appreciate the Info. But they are a team that sacrificed some youngers to make their olders better. Those 04-06 teams will be tough as nails with all their girls. I’m sure they are tough now.

The 05 I think your speaking of is at Beach. And is playing 03.

Thanks @Josep. Good point about Burlingame. It does cause a distortion. But as you say, it is incremental. Any team that played them was credited with an automatic win, but the benefit of that automatic win was offset by a hit to their strength of schedule. I haven't tested to see whether it was an incremental benefit or detriment. But it would be very small given the large number of overall games and the fact that goal differential is not part of the NCAA's RPI formula (the one I used). I suspect in the aggregate it hurt the NW division because they not only had to include Burlingame's results, but had the strength of schedule brought down for all their teams.
 
MUCH better results for the home teams at U18-19.

I don't follow this age group, but from these stats it looks like a tragedy that only Slammers, Surf and SC Del Sol are among the 16 team playoff field. Real, Blues, and Legends were all robbed. [Edit: per the post below, Real and Legends are now in the playoffs.]

Corrected on 6/16/18 (had the same formula error as my draft U16/17 calc - didn't pick up all the games)
Just curious why you don't include SC Del Sol in red. They're part of the Southwest Division and are part of that equation, no?

Because this is a So Cal soccer forum. The highlights are to enable people to more easily pick out the So Cal teams (as well as the division those teams play in).

Well this thread does talk a lot about the SW division of which SC del Sol is a part of. And that is a club that the So Cal teams play all year long as well. Seems to make sense since we are looking at what the SW div does, etc.

I understand there are many other ways this info could have been organized. No offense to SC del Sol.
 
I see different Rank #'s on the USSDA standings than what SocalPapa posted. What am I missing? Here's what I see on a quick check (minus U14 since they are not tabulated by USSDA):
(U15, U17, U19)
Tophat: 4, 7, 8 (not 6, 3, 5)
FC Dallas: 2, 3, 26 (not 1,1, 25)
Slammers: 30, 1, 6 (not 26, 4, 1)
PDA: 1, 8, 5 (not 11, 9, 7)
Crossfire: 29, 2, 1 (not 29, 5, 2)
Etc etc -
am I looking at the wrong source? Or was his club ranking done before the final regular season rankings were updated?

The USSDA numbers are the DA playoff seedings, which are based strictly on points/game (and tiebreakers). My ranking is an RPI (the same formula NCAA uses for soccer). The difference is primarily strength of schedule. PDA's U15 team may be a #1 seed in the playoffs, but with a #11 in RPI they are not quite the favorite they appear to be. We'll see how this all actually plays out though.
