Does anyone know anything about the FC Westchester team and Manhattan Pumas team...where are they now (division / league) and where would they each be if they were in LIJSL Nassau or Suffolk? Impartial honest assessment please.
Last Fall, someone asked a similar question and as a WYSL coach/parent, this is how I replied. I think it still holds true:
The best WYSL team, the Manhattan Crew, left WYSL this Fall. They were on par with the best LIJSL D1 teams.
The next best team, the FC Somers StingRays, play U12 D2. They are about equivalent to an average LIJSL D1 team but not as good as the top teams (SHA, NHP, Mass, DH, etc).
The next group of teams play U11 D1 and are probably equivalent to lower tier LIJSL D1 teams or top tier D2 teams: NY Rush Patriots 01, Scarsdale Pride, Gotham Girls Sky Blue, FC Westchester Elite 01, NY Soccer Club G2000.
The next group of teams are also U11 D1. They are equivalent to middle tier LIJSL D2 teams: Manhattan Pumas, Castleford G2000 Gold, Larchmont Lasers, New Rochelle Rolling Thunder.
The next group of teams play U11 D2. They are probably the equivalent of lower tier LIJSL D2 and upper tier D3 teams: Briarcliff Blaze, Lewisboro Night Hawks.
The rest of the U11 D2 and below teams are not competitive with any upper tier D3 and above LIJSL teams.
