My statement was to imply that should USA/MP have been playing in the USYSA structure last year with their top teams they would have had 5 teams in the USYSA National league.
These are facts that can not be twisted or disputed for all our causal readers:
USA/MP in 2017-2018 were 1 of 2 clubs in the US that had a boys team in every age group of USYSA National League. It is my understanding that they were granted entrance for 2018-2019 back into the USYSA National League in every age group. They turned that opportunity down for the NPL league. Regardless if thatís true, based on the rules, there is no disputing their 03s and 04s were automatic qualifiers; so at a minimum as opposed to using language ďPossibly in Nationals leagueĒ as Shamrock does above, I can say with certainty that they had at least 2 spots.
FACT: USA/MP had 2 spots in USYSA National League at a minimum.
Additionally they won every State Cup in South Carolina on the boys side except U19. Thatís U13, U14, U15, U16, U17 & U18. Meaning their top teams for 2018-2019 had automatic bids to the Piedmont league.
FACT: All USA/MP top teams would have been playing in the Piedmont league, not challenge had they been in the USYSA umbrella.
This past year in the NPL their 05s & 00/01s won their NPL league and qualified for the ENPL championship. Additionally their 03s won a bid based on finishing tied for second in their NPL league. That leaves only their 04s & 02s outside of qualifying. The 06 (u13 ) age group doesnít have advancement. As the 04s were an automatic bid to National League, based on Shamrocks comment above ( you canít assume based on their NPL results.. ) that argument doesnít hold water in this discussion. USYSA National League spots are earned in the previous year of play.
First, thank you for for elaborating on USA/MPs status. I appreciate you correcting that USA/MP would not have been in the USYSA National League in all five age groups as you previously stated (er...implied). They may have earned five spots, but for sure, two, which in itself is certainly laudable. And that is just their boys.
I am also glad that you corroborated what I wrote as essentially true and are merely concerned with the phrasing. I don't think I took a dig at USA/MP or any other club, but if you felt the need to be defensive or just clarity, so be it.
