Does anyone know what the Pre-Season Jamboree on 9/7 entails? Are there any scrimmage-like games or is it just a parade of teams?

Gotcha...thanks. I know with some other sports they just do a parade of teams.

I saw that they moved some of the U11 teams to U12. Not sure if that means they are going to do divisions or not. I also just read the league rules on the Coastal PDL site. The schedule is not being released until September 8th, I'm guessing after the jamboree to make any adjustments. Has anyone heard anything about a jamboree schedule (times, locations, etc.)?

I was looking to get some honest feedback from Coastal PDL parents on what they think of the new format (ie - 3 periods, no subs in the first 2 and only the 3rd period score counting) so far, now that we have completed half the season.

After speaking with parents on our team, everyone's biggest issue is the scoring. Its hard to explain to our kids (who maybe scored their first goal) that it doesn't count until the 3rd period. I'm sure people will respond that this is for player development and not the team's win/loss record but we've seen teams not playing hard, or playing kids out of position until it "counts" in the 3rd period. So, the coaches across the board are playing to win in the 3rd period.

Just looking for some feedback...what are everyone's thoughts?

I think it depends on age groups. At the u11 & u10 level, its g to see 2 periods focused on development and I hven't seen a kid not play hard until 3rd period because it didnt "count." I have seen some parents cheer harder in the third wink

That said, this observation is at the u11, u10 level. It's a non-issue and the kids are just playing. I can imagine the older kids with a few years of "normal" games might act differently.

I also thought it is a great, low-pressure environment for these referees. There are quite a few young kids and it's great to see.
