I guess I'm a bit slow. Does that mean teams that are 09 and below in the low country are only playing the 5 or 6 local clubs in the CPL? 1 or 2 of those clubs have 3rd level teams(or more). That would mean some of those divisions only have 3 or 4 teams in it?
I'd say yes you are correct for U8-U10 in CPL South. Similar to how any league or competition operates, I'm certain there will be some limitations and condensing in brackets. I think it likely/certain in some divisions, you will see less levels or options as teams are massed to make a viable product or service. Same as Coastal. Equally certain, in some age groups, you'll see a much broader offering; unfortunately with girls side most vulnerable to merging based on generally lower numbers.
