[quote=Anonymous]Not only will Massapequa not be LIJSL
, neither will any ISA, HBC, and possibly other, as these Clubs are placing their TOP team in the NPL.
Not only are they leaving LIJSL
, they are leaving ENY State Cup & LI Cup.
They will be playing in the NPL & NYCSL-NY Cup.....
If you want to play the TOP teams in the area (NY,NJ & CT) then you should apply to play in NYCSL NYPL
top divisions are already watered down with daddy coached, just about average teams. Within a year or two, you wil have d3 and d4 teams playing d1 soccer. What is even worst, you will be playing these teams on the big pitch next fall at age 11/12? Where is the development? Are you ready for some ping-pong soccer? This is so funny, though, cause, I was never a fan, of HBC, ISA, Massapequa, Northport teams, yet they are doing it right. Soon, the LIJSL
will be the little league of soccer all across long island. With the money we are paying for travel soccer, we should be focused on raising the standards and placing increased accountability of those who administer soccer programs on Long Island. This should be about what is best for our children and not what is best for the board members and their self serving interests. Are you listening Smithtown, Merrick, Commack, New Hyde Park? This should also be about exposing soccer teams on long island to other regional competition in the area without having to play the same community teams every fall/spring season year after year. Remember, the LIJSL
is not the be all, end all.
