You're fluent in lies, excuses and bullshit but reality is promotion / regulation has been working just fine for youth soccer for a while now.You really are dense, aren’t you? In the right context (youth soccer club being one of them), a non-profit can be the best possible legal form in which to maximize income. This is probably beyond your ability to comprehend, so I’ll dispense with the details other than to say that non-profits can essentially push profit in the form of coaching fees to the same dudes who run the show, and without having to worry about the government taking a big chunk of it. They also avoid employment taxes on the back end when they label the comp as coaching fees rather than wages. And the real beauty is they can use unpaid volunteers to do most of the work that would otherwise need to paid for. In reality, a non-profit can be almost the purest form of capitalism because things like taxes, minimum wage obligations and workers comp don’t get in the way of doing what you want with your revenue. At Blues, the coaching fees those guys pay themselves exceed $600,000 a year. Slammers pays about $1.5 million in coaching fees. You’re even dumber than than you write if you think people aren’t making boatloads of money through non-profits. Just ask Kenneth Copeland.
It’s easy to make up crazy theories that have no basis in reality when you have no concept of business administration or even basic economics, and you think that people will just throw millions of dollars away just so others can freeload off of their money and hard work. You may as well propose that we stop making the laws of gravity apply to our players. You and the others who think promotion/relegation is a solution are the real reason men’s soccer sucks in the US. There are just too many dumb people involved in the sport.
Coast soccer (CSL) has been doing it for many years, in my son's age group the premier teams won national cup, npl, crl and are going for national champions playing for clubs (TFA, Oxnard, Santa Barbara) without the so called millions.
Get real you're trying to protect your bubble and are afraid of real competition, you want to take the easy way out and play in closed leagues, where the main admission requirement is what you pay.
