      Which are the best kids' soccer clubs in New Jersey?  Some clubs have a great 2003 team and a terrible 2002 team - can you even compare them?

      Perhaps it is just chance?

      It turns out it is not chance.  I compared the clubs that had the ten highest nationally ranked 2003 teams out of which I kept those with at least four nationally ranked teams in different age groups.  I performed ANOVAs on the inverse ranking and on the log(ranking) and found that, indeed, there is a statistically significant difference in both cases (p<0.0008).

      The club rankings come out slightly differently depending upon how you do the averaging.  On top is displayed the inverse of the inverse average and on bottom is displayed the exponential of the log averages.  

      The winner is Match Fit, second place is taken by TSF and third place is shared by FC Copa and Morris United..
