Default Speaking of acronyms... EDP

So reading here, I've finally gotten my head around GDA, ECNL, and NPL. Where does EDP fit into it all?

EDP = Easten Developmental Program.

A large multi tiered league that is headquartered in NJ. It has boys and girls teams from MD to CT. The top division are NPL leagues. It's a qualifying league for ENPL, meaning that the winners of the NPL age groups are eligible for the national series.

GDA, ECNL and NPL have member clubs that are expected to field teams in every age group.

EDP is more akin to the Region 1 and NYPL in that they will accept individual teams from clubs so that smaller clubs can participate (and larger clubs aren't forced to find filler teams in age groups they are weak in).

Is EDP as much a for profit organization as NYCSL is ?

I don't believe EDP is non profit. It's not listed in Guidestar.

I confirmed MSSL is a non profit. I am guessing EDP is a separate corporation.

Regardless there is some interdependence. According to its 990, It's largest revenue comes from EDP league. Second largest is a licensing agreement (probably from EDP?). Third largest is from from MAPS

However, non profit doesn't mean they don't pay handsomely. MSSL Salaries listed at nearly $600,000. Due to its size EDP had to be doing better than NYCSL

EDP is much, much larger than NYPL and has significantly stronger teams playing in it. That being said NYPL is not a bad way to get your feet wet with regional play.
