Anyone care to share the info they were given regarding the split? Here I will go first...

Coach: " The conference is going to be split"

good stuff!

I know there was a list put on here a few weeks ago, but not sure if it's a go...

Thanks, since @Desert Hound won't share the schedule with me.. haha

I need the schedule please. Futbol dad 1 knows his stuff. Give it up guys. Last year is like being a senior in HS. I know a few on here that have very tight relationships with those in the know. I would like a heads up about opening day. When, where and who would be great. Thanks fellas. PM me and I will release it.

What I seen today the list is dead on.
2 games against in division teams and one out against every team out division
Top 3 in both divisions will go to national playoffs.

Nothing even about these brackets.

have to disagree with you about it being even.

The 3 top teams (historically) in one bracket doesn’t make sense. If a great park team (slammers) has to play in northern bracket, why Slammers? Why not LAFC or Blues?

But Slammers might not make playoffs in the Southern bracket, and we can’t have that.

I understand that perception.... but looked at without emotions and just using the statistics (forgiving that data must be projected for the 3 newcomers).... it is actually perfectly balanced......using last season's clubs standings and then conservatively ranking Beach at 4, Legends at 5 and Royals at 10 from the 17 total clubs.....this leads to an average finish of "9" for each conference...... and remember I think there is a good chance that Beach or Legends bumps Blues or maybe even Surf from the top 3......... one conference has higher highs and lower lows, the other is more competitive top to bottom..... flipping Koge and SFC would make one conference much stronger than the other but I am sure that keeping the two apart was somewhat "political"...... remember every age group is different too so whether individual teams make finals or playoffs or not is not down to excuses but down to the coaching and the players..........Im not trying to start an argument and dont need you to agree with me Im just supplying a more objective perspective to the subjective takes that rule the roost around these parts...... personally my daughter just can not wait for things to get underway on time this year lol

I guess we will see how it all shakes out. Seeing that we have no say, only opinions, the best way we will see the final results will be the end of the season when we see the records between the two brackets.
If you went to youth soccer rankings you would see among all age groups the south of the 55 bracket has the three highest ranked teams across the board. That’s not parity.
Your objectivity could be because you won’t play in this bracket.

I guess you have to beat the best to be the best. So here we go!!

I would argue the YSR for last year are not indicative. Hard to get good figures when some teams were in GA which isn't as strong. Beach and Legends were playing in the shallow end in ecRl, etc.

I think that Blues, Legends, Surf and Beach are all fairly close.

LAFC is the one club that is far and away the best overall.

I agree with you 100%, although it will be interesting to see what happens at Blues this year with a lot of girls leaving with Baker. I think no matter what Blues will always field strong teams

Lot's of movement still to happen before 9/11 opening day footy. Look, my dd at this point just wants to play against the best. When I was playing hoops, I took on Ced 1 on 1. He kicked my ass but I scored on his lousy defense at will.....lol! My personal goal is to start the season without politics getting in the way. If we can get past that, then let's hope all the games are played. That right there is winning for all the girls and the parents and the coaches too :) No desire to fly across the country for playoffs for some reason next year. Not jonesing for that trip at all. Good luck to all the top top clubs. I hope you all get what you want. The rest of the best are trying to stay in the great ECNL. Good luck to ALL the girls trying to just play soccer for fun.

Blues have been consistently ranked higher than LAFC over the years. Yes, LAFC had a good year this year, but that is one year.

Nobody said blues weren’t a power house…. But league results and performances in ecnl finals is the hard data…..soccer wire much more arbitrary…… lafc slammers ranked as overall top club last two seasons by the ECNL there has been playoffs…….. baker flipping clubs will be a factor too especially in the short term……
