This is one of those policy questions best answered by League administrator. I would hate to provide incorrect or misleading information on this public board.
Much as I would refer you to SCYS leadership if you asked me how they accepted new member clubs.
So I decided to reach out to the League administrato, Sean Carey. I asked the following in email:
I was referred to you in trying to determine a few things about the CPL.
1. There is an application to join the league for Spring 2018.
A. Is that for any age group?
B. Did any clubs apply?
2. How are clubs determined if they may enter in the future?
3. Is there a vote on new membership, and if so, who votes?
4. If a vote is required, what is the threshold for approval?
That was one week ago, but thus far no response. Perhaps he was too busy, hadnít gotten to it yet, or overlooked the email.
