In other words, other than the name change, I don't see a lot of change.
So sorry you child didn't make either team and you kid isn't good enough to be a part of either team. a little bit of class mixed with a little bit of fun isn't such a bad thing. too bad you will never be a part of. you will be losing a lot of players to this classy partying group so be prepared.

You know it's tryout time when the trolls come out in full force and don't let the facts stand in the way of their arguments. WUP had more teams in the State Cup round robins than all clubs other than the much larger MPS, NEFC, and Stars, and more than four times as many teams in the round robins--and six times as many teams in the State Cup semifinals--than any other WMass club. Lots of clubs around the state would settle for that kind of "mediocrity."

Completely driven by the WU side, the P side remained crap

The most money hungry "Development" program I've ever seen. They charge families an arm and a leg, then will deliver little in return in terms of coaching quality and cancel many practices.

Not really true. U16's are a P team, with a few W's added, and though they got bumped in round robin from State Cup, they did win subregion to qualify for Region 1 Premier next year; placed first in NEP ; & won MAPS cup gold this weekend.

WUP put more teams into the NEP NPL finals than any other club, and won two NPL age groups, matching CFC for best (MPS got one, Aztecs 1, NEFC none). Those teams were sliced and diced by calendar age, giving the club a chance to put together groups of players from different teams on the W and P side of the club as well as experimenting with calendar age groups. And WUP did win a state cup for the first time in several years, for the U19s. One of the clear objectives of the two merging boards was to make Western MA relevant again at the state level, which hopefully will bear more fruit in coming years.

It is true that WUP did not apply high pressure on teams to sort players. But who really wanted them to? Almost certainly not most of the the families that were well settled onto teams, many of those only able to play within a particular commuting distance. I think it has become easier for players to move between teams than before, and easier to sort players more quickly than the traditional gradual adjustments by stronger players changing teams over a few years. The real proof will be in the youngest teams and over a period of a few years; but who doesn't agree that it is a plus for the region if they succeed ?

Looks like a club administrator made his/her way here... everyone knows (and wishes) Western stayed put.

I feel bad that a club administrator for WUP actually takes time to troll TS to post replies. They should spend more time ensuring quality in their club and coaches
