Why we learn about Physics for soccer

Magnus effect, generation of a sidewise force on a spinning cylindrical or spherical solid immersed in afluid (liquid or gas) when there is relative motion between the spinning body and the fluid. Named after the German physicist and chemist H.G. Magnus, who first (1853) experimentally investigated the effect, it is responsible for the “curve” of a served tennis ball or a driven golf ball and affects the trajectory of a spinning artillery shell.

MSSL / EDP to Continue Tournaments on America’s Finest Fields in Hammonton, NJ

East Brunswick, NJ- We are pleased to announce to our family of tournament participants that the finest soccer events in the country, MSSL and EDP, will continue to be hosted for years to come on the best fields in America at Tuckahoe Turf Farms in Hammonton, NJ. The formal agreement was reached in late December with the Township of Hammonton.


MSSL works to spread the joy and passion of the game to athletes, young and old, with the goal of providing these players with the opportunity to continue playing at the collegiate level. Securing the use of the Tuckahoe Turf Farms as a venue goes a long way to support the organization’s mission both on and off the field. In the past 12 months, Hammonton has hosted 11 events ranked among the top 33 of over 1300 nationally evaluated events. Those numbers include multiple number 1’s and top ten’s for boys, and top ten’s for girls, according to Got Soccer. In a letter of support for the venue, President of the United States Soccer Federation (US Soccer) speaks favorably of the Tuckahoe Turf Farm in Hammonton, NJ and states, “…the playing surface is as good as any the youth players have access to in the Northeast. The access to such quality facilities, the size of the venue and the caliber of competition that MSSL (the relevant league) attracts, through EDP flights and other league programs, is significant. The major tournaments and college showcase MSSL conducts are important to continue broad-based growth and development of youth soccer in the United States.”

MSSL Player Progression System President Steve Shilling stated, “As we head toward the 2015 MSSL Spring College Showcase on April 3rd and 4th and the EDP (Eastern Development Program) Cups held on May 23rd and 24th and June 13th and 14th, we are proud to continue to deliver to you the finest competitions on the best possible pitches. The future is bright for MSSL, EDP and for all of our players.” Shilling explains, “The tournaments hosted at Tuckahoe Turf Farms provide an unparalleled experience for players, coaches and college recruiters as up to 35 world-class fields can be in use in close proximity.” This benefits both collegiate coaches and athletes. Coaches can watch a greater number of athletes without having to relocate from venue to venue and players will receive maximum exposure to showcase their abilities.

Admiration of Tuckahoe Turf Farms does not stop there and is found across the region among club and college coaches who all sing the praises of the high quality terrain and the exceptional level of that play that this location allows. Tim Oswald, Head coach of Division III Men’s Soccer National Champions Rutgers-Camden says, “Tuckahoe Turf Farms is a tremendous venue for aspiring youth that enjoy the game of soccer. The opportunity for players to be seen in a college showcase atmosphere in tournament play allows players to be seen by college coaches from all over the country in order to pursue their dreams of playing soccer at the next level and to earn a degree.  The large number of fields utilized for a weekend here or there allows Tuckahoe Turf Farms to be one of the best venues in the country for these events.” Additionally, St. Joseph’s University Head Women’s Soccer Coach, Jessica Manella applauses the venues playing surface by stating, “I am familiar with soccer surfaces from around the country, having recruited at many venues. Tuckahoe Turf Farm’s sod fields are among the best natural playing surface I have seen outside of professional stadiums.”
Oswald’s and Manella’s words are echoed by numerous college coaches in the region including; Temple Universities Men’s Head Coach, Dave McWilliams; LaSalle University’s Women’s Assistant coach, Ally Kinney; Philadelphia University Head Men’s Coach, Ptah Myers; Rob Nydick, Arcadia University Head Men’s Soccer Coach; and Rob Dallas Cabrini College Head Men’s Soccer Coach.
