Default NYCSL vs. EDP

Seems like the landscape of soccer is changing in NY region. Some EDP teams are leaving for NYCSL. Is NYCSL slowly taking over EDP? NYCSL is expanding and seem more dynamic now. Metro has some strong teams in it now and NPL is very strong. Any thoughts?

I think Metro and NPL are club based and EDP is team based. I suppose there are advantages and disadvantages to both systems. Difficult for smaller clubs to have competitive teams at all age groups.

NYCSL is glorified rec ball. The only reason it exists is because LIJSL wouldn't allow most of those teams to play in their league. EDP is much better competition, better established and has far greater reach than NYCSL will ever dream about having.

What EDP teams are leaving?

Princeton SA is leaving NYCSL and joining EDP.

EDP runs 14+ flights per age group and is growing like a weed. NYCSL team count went down for the first time last year. One team or club switching should not lead to such a blanket statement.

EDP is opening an office on LI this year. It's been said here before and even LM posted it before having to take it down. I have heard EDP plans on bidding for the NY Cup starting 2018/19.

All that matters to parents is winning games. EDP rewards this and will grow. It you care how the games are won, go another country.

Princeton SA is in second to last or dead last in 6 out of 8 NPL age groups. Why on earth would they want to stay in a league they can't compete in? Makes sense to me, I wouldn't drive all that way to have my kid clobbered and demoralized every weekend. EDP is a much better choice for them.

Based on that, Quickstrike should probably leave too.

Top two EDP brackets are good. Beyond that it's a quick downward slide. lower level NYCSL is just awful. There's a lot of small and midsized clubs that have some good teams but not a full contingent for NPL so edp is a great place for them. And some npl clubs have the full contingent of teams but half will be weak. It's no guarantee you'll get quality competition

Metro league is a trick to get clubs to commit more teams to NYCSL. They are way down in numbers from their peak of a couple years ago.
