***GB is not on the board, I confused him with Troy Garner... how I do not know.
I think what I have discovered is Georgia is to blame for our weird youth soccer landscape. Reading around different blogs on the webbernets I think some state soccer orgs mandated to not cross the streams. If I remember Arizona may be one of those places.
Do you mean for clubs not to have every league? Like CF has RPL, ECNL and DA...
All these leagues available for our kids, I'm generally OK with it.
I think it becomes an issue when a club has all leagues. If your club applies for ECNL/ENPL, and the top team plays in that league, then the club shouldn't retain a spot in SRPL (unless you have the players at that level to field a team). I heard that DA doesn't favor the clubs that already have ECNL/ENPL, when considering which clubs to add to the league. Makes sense, they want that club's non-diluted best.
So, it seems that the clubs that have ENPL also retain their RPL slots. Can someone explain how the heck they were able to do so, assuming that USYS would require a certain level of player for RPL, if most RPL players from last year's team are on the club's ENPL team?
No difference. The S just specifies the southern region.
So if RPL and SRPL are the same thing, that mean's spectator's hierarchy of youth soccer is this:
1. Top Team - DA 2. Second Team - ECNL/ENPL 3. Third Team - SRPL 4. Fourth Team - Classic 1/Athena A 5. Fifth Team - Classic 2/Athena B and so on down the scale
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
So, I think it's important for us to understand, so that our boys understand, the only formal hierarchy listed above are items 3-5. Items 1 - 3 represent different leagues, and on any given day, a club's top team can beat another club's top team. DA is a bit more obvious, but again, any given day. I did hear that clubs won't be allowed to carry both DA and ECNL/ENPL moving forward.
Since the question was asked, here's my understanding:
To call the Premier Division "SRPL" or "SPL" and First Division "RPL" is technically wrong, although I know what people mean when they say it.
SRPL is USYS Region 3 (Southern Regional Premier League) - some say R3PL, which I think was used at some point in the past to abbreviate Region 3. There are SRPL sub-regions, and we are East. East has 2 divisions: Premier and First.
So how will this work for placement in the c1, c2 and below if these teams with ecnl move their c1 players to ecnl? Will ga soccer account for this and drop them to lower divisions?
I think the same question is for clubs with RPL teams that move their top team to ENPL. For instance, why should the club retain their spot in RPL if those players are no longer around to play at that level? Unless, they recruit a bunch of kids that played RPL last year. Everything I've heard is that it's about the players. Some clubs, like GSA, are advertising both ENPL and RPL. They didn't have 2 RPL teams at a certain age level, so not sure how they can post this info for that age level on their tryout page.
Yes in theory, but was under the impression they could only play if they quit DA etc.
At the younger ages for most clubs, and all ages for CF, a club pass is easy - the players are already there. I am not sure if it matters whether some quit - the DA season is over, and the club wants to help the club.
For AU, they let kids go, and I know of one club that snatched at least one up very quickly. I guess some could have quit ...
Was there a "great team" this year? Seems with age change, as you said, but also AU sending a ripple wave through all the clubs, I don't believe there was one club team in particular that ruled any age group.

Soccerhouse: ENPL has nothing to with RPL. Its US clubs soccer boys ECNL equivalent and their jab at US soccer for creating girls DA and "ignoring" ECNL -- search the threads, there is a thread with the teams listed so far. Basically all current southern ECNL clubs
