Breakdown by division is only for U13 and U14. Not sure why they do for those age groups and not others. Did notice that the top five from each age group qualify for the ENPL Playoffs for U15 and above. Last year it was only the top four. To be totally fair it should be more like the top four from the "South" (HA) qualify in addition to the top Florida team. Their PPG numbers are going to be grossly inflated getting to play all the FL teams twice.
Armada and Palm Beach are terrible across all age groups. Orlando and Tampa in most. If you are FL Elite or FKK and win the extra four games against those four clubs you get an extra .63 PPG boost in the standings.
Obviously this wouldn't apply to all age groups and teams drop points to teams they shouldn't all the time but to put it in perspective. FL Elite and FKK tie both times they play each other and beat the other 5 FL teams twice that's 32 points. They would only need to get six more points out of seven games in AL/TN/GA to get to 2.0 PPG. That's top three in every age group right now. They could conceivably end up with zero points against the four ATL teams and still advance.

think it may have to do with the teams you play. For example all teams in the same div play each other twice and then you play each team in the other division once. Though not sure why they waited until now to split it apart.
One issue right now is the Florida teams also have high school soccer going on. This has been an issue with scheduling. The conference changes, assuming their implementing across all ages, should help.

Have either the u13 or u14 spring schedules been updated based on the north/south split? Could be just an “administrative” move at this point with playoff implications... maybe it’ll be a better (less) travel schedule for 2019-2020?

13s and 14s schedules have been out since the start of the season. Most of the FL travel for the GA teams was completed in the Fall half. Looks like the most significant change for those 2 age groups will be for ENPL playoffs. For the 14s, the top team from North and the top team from South get a spot. Prior to the North/South split, it was just the top two teams overall. (For 13s, it's just the first team overall that earns a spot.)
Maybe the North/South split will have some addt'l significance for next year (20-21 season).

While the travel to FL stinks the big wins against most of those teams are a fun break from the gauntlet that is having to play all the GA/TN/AL teams twice.
Especially starting at U15 when the DA teams contract in ATL.
Small sample size but FL Elite is, on average, the best FL club. As a club they have .75PPG (12 pts in 16 games) against GA and AL teams (they were the other team/club that FESA dropped points against in U15 and U17). You bet they want out of having to travel out of state.
U15 currently in 2nd at 6-1-2. They are 0-0-2 vs ATL with the loss to AL. U16 currently in 12th at 2-6-1. They are 0-3-0 vs ATL with a loss to 11th place AL. U17 currently in 1st at 8-2-1. They are 2-2-0 vs ATL with the draw to AL. U18 currently in 12th at 3-7-1. They are 1-3-0 vs ATL with a loss to AL.
honeybadger: So do y'all play out of the Fowler location? Maybe we will scrimmage over this fall break? Have we played y'all this season in a tournament? If we do play y'all, we'll have to talk on the sideline!!

atl44: Where did you hear that? When did he resign?
Oct 1, 2019 15:40:52 GMT -5
southside steve: e-mail sent to me. from GA SOCCER. i assume it was sent to all members: Steve Keiss has resigned his position as President of the Georgia Soccer Board of Directors. The Georgia Soccer Board would like to thank Steve for his 12 years of service to the Board

JJQ90: SK did resign, are there more to follow?
Oct 7, 2019 9:25:08 GMT -5
soccerdriver4: Georgia Soccer and NL need a jump start. SCCL needs promotion/relegation, and better communication a must. Too much last minute stuff.
Oct 7, 2019 15:24:50 GMT -5
no news: SK is a lifetime member and still an ODP coach. Perhaps he is just moving on without anything more to it

Question: Why is soccer in Georgia and most other states fragmented and can it be fixed?
Oct 12, 2019 9:34:48 GMT -5
atlfutboldad: Why? Poor management/oversight from USYS. Can it be fixed? Doubtful, clubs don't want it fixed. It would take directive from the *weak* USSF.
Oct 15, 2019 17:27:06 GMT -5
SCCLparent: The more I begin to understand the soccer scene the more I realize how fragmented and diluted every league is. Why so many? Business? I doubt one is better than the other. Certainly not good for competition. Not good.
Nov 18, 2019 23:05:13 GMT -5
toddga675: There will be more fragmentation to come. SCCL will expand into more divisions. Georgia Soccer will counter with more leagues. USL will bring Academy divisions. ECNL will add another division. The level of fragmentation will eventually be quite amusing.
Nov 19, 2019 12:11:15 GMT -5
SCCLparent: Amusing for whom? How is that even any good for the sport or the kids?
Nov 19, 2019 21:51:19 GMT -5
atlfutboldad: That's terrible! ^ Unfortunate injuries happen, career-ending ones. I certainly would NOT put that on the coach, thats routine coaching and playing.

HS Teach/Coach: Well, only parents can put a stop to this nonsense of missing that many days. Club coaches DO NOT CARE! Totally agree with the parent who said missing a day maybe two, but 3 in one week is a bit excessive. If parents stop paying, clubs couldn't afford...
Dec 3, 2019 16:47:25 GMT -5
Realitysports: Hs soccer is a joke, perhaps that’s way ,many players committ to taking days off sense it’s a clear pathway and is worth the sacrifice I believe.

CC79: Is US Club or SCCL planning to do something with coaching education? I see nothing happening on that front unless is not the website.
