- There is a comment on the dataleague website that seems to confuse many people "Since all Early Season games are Division 1, there is no option to move out of Region Games into Region A."
Can you clarify? People are interpreting as if they cannot participate in Region A Cup, but they can as long as it is division 1, correct?

C (West Coast of Florida). When the Region C clubs were brought in as members,
- This past Memorial Day I had the pleasure of watching my daughters team in Disney. I noticed that rules that seemed applicable years ago are no longer valid, or respected, and thought it should be considered for future decisions within our Youth Soccer organization.
Years ago, a player that played 2nd division, and was good enough to play, or even guest play at the Div 1 level, was considered “not eligible” to play back down at the 2nd division level. Is this correct? If not, can this be something to be considered? In other words, although the player was registered for 2nd division, in the event that she plays for her clubs div 1 team, the player should not be brought back down to the 2nd division level, since that isn’t his or her legitimate level of play. (Clubs may register their players, even if talented, to Div 2 teams and use them to support their div I teams. Possibly there can be a limit of games they can play at the div 1 level, which will make them a div 1 player only?)
The same is occurring with teams at tournaments. Div I teams are playing Div 1 throughout the league, even playing State Cups and then register for Div II at tournaments in order to win and receive recognition.
Additionally, teams that are div 2 will bring in Div 1 guest players to tournaments, for their Div 2 teams.
How can this be controlled?
To my knowledge, there is no restriction on the use of Div 1 players on Div 2 teams and vice-versa with the exception of the ...
- The other leagues in Florida publishes the result of the games in their website. Despite that the category 2006 does not have standings; it would be nice to count on the results of the games in the website. Do you think that it would be possible to count on the games results for the U11 (2006) as the other leagues?
SFUYSA purposely does not publish the standings of its teams in U9 to U11 so that the focus will be on the enjoyment of the ...
