SCYSA Coastal league is now Coastal PDL with several significant changes.

https://www.coastalpdl.com/faq.html?utm_..._eid=18b7702682

Significant changes include:


Who can participate?
The league is open to ALL Coastal area SCYSA- affiliated clubs who wish to participate. Teams will be placed in appropriate matches under the direction of their club’s Director of Coaching (DOC) who will act in the team's best interest. (not so veiled shot at CPL

What has changed from the former Coastal League?
New games format that provides teams a consolidated 90 minutes of playtime and gives every player the most opportunity to improve. Set games and venues scheduled well in advance, aimed to minimize travel impacts. Consideration will be given to teams that are traveling over an hour. Players will have 90 minutes of play in a single game rather than 100 minutes between two games spread across the day/weekend.

I can't see how the "set" game dates are any different than Fall 2018/Spring 2019 in the Coastal League. The set dates changed due to teams/coaches other commitments with tournaments and other teams. It didn't work. Also, teams lose their home games because you can't have half of your games at your location anymore if there are only 6 games and the venues are preset. I really didn't like this past season and was hoping they would go back to the teams scheduling the games themselves like they do in every other league in SCYSA. Why are they trying to change Coastal?

So is this the Battery taking over scysa Coastal instead of applying to the CPL? The link says this will be operated by the Battery soccer club.

I think maybe CBSC will administer the league on behalf of the club DOCs that are in the leagu?

So is it basically the same teams in a league that is named differently?? I do like some of the rule changes though!

I'm assuming the name was changed mostly to reflect the rule changes which are a means to allow focus on player development v team development. More focus on skills attainment and less on scores. Seems a big shift but I get the intent. Teams involved will depend on the clubs.

There should be a press release pushed tomorrow. There will not be an application, simply registering through the state association. All clubs currently in the Coastal geographic area will be encouraged to participate.

The new structure was done in conjunction with the technical directors of the current Coastal clubs. Structure certainly looks better for referees and parents. I am leaning toward thinking that the 90 minutes of game time in a single match will be better for kids and coaches that make adjustments and use the games as an instructional time where they can monitor and adjust.
