OH NO!!! Our best to her and your family! I agree with goteam - follow the rehab instructions! We had a friend come back from surgery only to re-injure herself her first tournament back in the game. Careful recovery!
What is nice when clubs do this also for the younger academy teams -- let kids play up but not down. I've seen so many u9/u10 games, where a top team player from the opposition suits up against a 3rd team. (sometimes its necessary to field a team, often its not)
Gotta be careful what you are saying - I know what you mean but the "new to soccer" person could be confused.
There are 2 kinds of up / down - Age and Skill Level.
Soccerhouse is talking about up a skill level in this post. In clubs where players are pooled - there are skill level groupings. Some clubs are able to do what is being discussed - make sure the more advanced skill levels do not play in a lower skill level. That is nice and helpful for the still developing players. But sometimes it's unavoidable.
I know it's probably obvious, but you can never play down from your age in regular season play. There are more nuances, but for the sake of simplicity, let's leave it at that.
Tournaments are different beasts altogether as is rostering and age in U13 and older players. One step at a time.
Quick update for you. They're playing in the region iii championships and have won all three games with 10 goals for, 1 against. They're killing it as always.
We left our club and joined CFA (different age group) for the upcoming year and are excited to see how things go. CFA is a very new club and we expect some bumps as far as organization and such (no overpaid admin to help push paper for them) but I think it's going to be a great year from what I've seen so far!
For all the admins out there - I'm going to take offense at that "overpaid admin" comment. Go ahead and volunteer to be a TM. Better yet, go ahead and learn the complicated system used for administrative purposes for GA Soccer. Be an admin around State Cup / tournament time / team declaration time / opening day. I believe you'll be singing a different tune. Phones and emails blowing up. Personal time?? Non-existent. Unfortunately, paperwork is a just another thing that must be dealt with if you want to participate. Herding cats comes to mind.
On the other hand - I hope your son enjoys next season!

"Guest Players" are not allowed. You can transfer players from other clubs to your roster before the checkin deadline. The players must be either in your club (club pass) or on your roster (via transfer if necessary).
I think a big problem that we have is we're too focused on the individual, not focused on the team. And so this whole idea of technical ability and who's talented and who skillful, there are a lot of guys that are talented and skillful and have some soccer brains. But where we're coming up short lately is putting it together."
Teams (recruited) full of great skilled players who can't win a game because they are all "Messi" or "Ronaldo" or "pick your favorite superstar." They don't have time to learn about each from each other and trust each other because they are looking for the next best thing. Last I looked there were 11 on the field, not just 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1...
Eager to see the UFA kits in person. Kids couldn't make the fittings etc. Like the look of the kits though. Has Lloyds begun shipping them out to team managers? I can drink me some coffee for sure, so saving a few cents never hurts, especially since they are building a new dunkin on peachtree industrial by pinckneyville
UFA Mountains - got our kits last week. They are slightly different. Only black shorts. Different socks.

My older children (now U14 and U15) had a great experience playing super y - because they ended up getting a great deal of playing time. We didn't go anywhere for summer vacation, so they got to play a lot with their own teams and the older teams who were generally scheduled right after their games.
Lots of touches over the summer and when fall rolled around they were very ready for team camp.
isn't there a rule though that a player has to play with a team a certain amount of games or be rostered with them prior to state cup in order to participate? I could be wrong....
No, there is no rule that I'm aware of. Concorde last year brought like 75% of their ecnl team to state cup. You can bring guest players from anywhere (which also shouldn't be allowed unless they are from the same club).
I believe a player has to be on the team's official roster for state cup. Registrars all over are familiar with the last minute transfers which occur in the few weeks before state cup. Players are allowed only one transfer per season as well. I'm not sure about club passing.

soccerwatcher: Can someone explain how RPL works and how many teams can get a U14 RPL spot?

Soccer Parent: Anyone know the difference between ENPL and RPL?Seems like the same big clubs are traditionally playing RPL through USYouthSoccer.However, USClubSoccer just announced the ENPL.Anyone have any other information on where the big clubs will be in Fall 2017?

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
