Also looks like schedule goes thru spring season which I guess locks teams out of joining in spring.

You may be right, but there is a link to apply for the spring. Do not know if it is still genuine though.

After looking at my sons age group, I noticed a few clubs lost teams. Tormenta has more teams than I realized.

I saw some teams that will probably switch divisions in the spring unless their rosters have really changed, because I can see a few mismatches. I think the Spring will be better once the kinks are worked out.

These teams will be very familiar with each by years end. Several of them enter the same tournaments and are placed in the same brackets.

Tormenta is likely just how USAMP is going to rebrand itself now that it is a Mount Pleasant cub in name only. The recently fabricated "Lifetime Development Pathway" will likely connect to Tormenta in order to compete with CBSC locally in Charleston area in a claim the club is somehow connected to a "local" pro entity. Because Savannah is more local to Charleston than Daniel Island i guess

I saw the Spring Application tab and was therefore surprised that the schedules went thru the Spring season too. Which makes it hard for any new teams/clubs to join or current teams to switch if they are mismatched in their division either high or low. I'm guessing teams were aware of this even it wasn't passed down to the parents.

I'm sure some flexibility is built into the schedule, at least from the standpoint of moving teams. US Club soccer is still working to strengthen their footprint and have a vested interest creating a format that the clubs will want to continue to be a apart of.

The CPL is not so large that they can afford to hemorrhage multiple clubs, so I am sure some accommodations can will be made. In fact, the small volume of clubs is both its strength and weakness. Each clubs voice is considerable, but if a couple decided to walk away, it would struggle to survive in the younger groups.

Just noticed that Coastal has moved away from ages and has divisions of 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11.

Curious to see how that plays out.

Hearing the CPL schedule is complete for the year. That can't be true can it? Several teams are getting 11-13 games for the year. If true, that is not an improvement.

The purpose of US Club Soccer is to help build clubs. The league is better for the clubs, not the players or parents. Increased costs? Check. Fewer home games? Check. Pay for play at its best.

Im kind of excited about fewer games that will now be more competitive. My youngest will finally be able to play quality games against kids his own age. CPL is a win in our book!

The better teams that played up a year in Coastal will be playing less competitive games, the less better ones that played in their own year will play more competitive games.

So the teams
