NYCSL PRESS RELEASE

NYCSL joins newly expanded North Atlantic National League managed by EDP Soccer

July 20, 2021

Dear Members and Friends of the NYCSL,

The New York Club Soccer League (NYCSL), founded in 2009, was initially created to provide organized soccer for U9 players as that offering was not permitted by the Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA). In addition, we wanted to provide clubs with simple administration (no bureaucracy) as well as prompt and friendly customer service. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think our single U9 division would grow into a full-fledged program with over 25,000 players. It was and continues to be obvious that soccer families and the clubs in which they play want the type of administration and service provided by NYCSL.

This past year, the NYCSL became a division of the Cosmopolitan Junior Soccer League (CJSL), founded in 1933 and a member of Eastern New York (ENYYSA). In addition, the NYCSL began working cooperatively with EDP Soccer to support their efforts as they manage the North Atlantic Conference of US Youth Soccer (USYS) National League. Both working experiences with the CJSL and EDP Soccer has been truly exceptional as we all share the same philosophies and very basic principles of placing the customer first!

As you are aware, on July 15, ENYYSA announced a reckless and unsubstantiated decision that has put NYCSL members --- players, parents, coaches, teams, and clubs --- in a very uneasy position. ENYYSA has made it clear that they do not want the NYCSL to operate. Consequently, ENYYSA is not allowing players to use their ENYYSA registration cards to participate in NYCSL soccer activities. In other words, ENYYSA is refusing to allow the 25,000 players who participate in NYCSL brackets and players from other leagues who participate in other NYCSL activities to decide for themselves where they want to use their cards to play soccer.

The decision by ENYYSA is being appealed, and we believe will be reversed. However, that may take time, and we are in the registration time period for the 2021/2022 soccer year. We don’t have time to wait. We need a solution now to the mess created by ENYYSA actions.

And, we have a solution

The NYCSL is proud to announce that all of our teams and clubs will be able to register directly with EDP Soccer to play in an expanded format North Atlantic Conference of the USYS National League!! Brackets will be developed for boys and girls teams across all age groups that are competitively appropriate and make sense geographically.

All player passes will continue to be issued through the CJSL as our “PREFERRED PARTNER”. Player passes will be valid and accepted by EDP Soccer!

In addition, the NYCSL staff has been retained by EDP Soccer so that you will continue to receive the high level of on the ground customer service support you deserve. We will use the name New York Club Soccer (NYCS) going forward

Additional details will be posted July 21st. On behalf of the NYCSL and now NYCS, we look forward to continuing to serve you!!

Over the next 24 hours members of the NYCS team will be in touch to answer any questions you may have.

On a personal note, I would like to thank CJSL President, Ron Restrepo for his professionalism, integrity and never ending work ethic. It has been a pleasure working with you and your board members! We look forward to our continued working relationship!

In addition, on behalf of the NYCSL membership including 25,000 players, I would like to recognize the efforts of USYS and EDP Soccer in their handling of this matter.



Regards,

Gary Grossman

If NYCSL is no longer a "league" and will be playing as part of EDP what does that make the new NYCS?

Called it, CJSL can't handle the volume, so EDP will.

The chutzpah on this guy, so he still earns a paycheck. Will be interesting to see if the teams are on the EDP website or the NYSC website.

This for sure would be a decent Netflix series.

i understood the announcement as NYCSL league business as usual, under EDP. keeping the staff and customer service in place to me means the NYCSL website operations will not change but just be branded with EDP.

The bottom line is those clubs not allowed to play LIJSL still have a place to play this Fall. You have just witnessed the marriage of two soccer whores. This is really a [****] mess for those of you involved who have to deal with these whores. As for me, I'm just sittin' here watching the wheels go round and round.

There will be many of these situations, but I have an interesting question.

Massapequa hates GG and refused to play NYCSL. They kept their older teams in EDP. Now with this marriage, where will they play? As a long island team they will be geographically placed with the others in NYCS....hmmmmmm

No. They will play in the premier and now more teams will have a chance for promotion to National League. Will raise the level because some of these clubs were staying NYCSL when they were good enough to play in Regionals. Especially on girls side. This was a win win.

At least there is not a scramble for the clubs at registration time. This was a bs move by enysa. If they were going to yank sanctioning announce that in May and give a drop dead date. Which would allow clubs to place teams where they wanted. The enysa ny cup is a rip off $700 and you lose and you are out. Say what you want about NYCSL being in it for the money they at lease give decent value compared to enysa. The quality of teams and the administrative bs that lijsl has is subpar if you think you want to be serious about youth soccer

Why would a club not be allowed to play LIJSL?

so technically , all this mess Eastern New York created only served to make EDP a bigger platform.
Isn't LIJSL team playing EDP carded by ENYYSA .
Wasn't NYCSL, AKA NYCS managing all EDP games division III, IV,V,VI anyway.
Premier team carded by LIJSL playing those division would still be playing with/under NYSC-EDP
ENYYSA just opened the door for all small mom and pops academies to attract more players to play in EDP directly whether they are premier level or not.
EDP would soon need to use the "Elite" designation to distinguished between the water down premier divisions

How does this effect carding? So, can’t ENYYSa just come in now and say their cards arent valid for the new NYCS if they want?

The intentions of enyysa clearly influenced by lijsl were to any unbiased onlooker in the wrong place. And in return explodes in there face. Now we have EDP Long Island just like that amazing.

It also exposes the Mickey Mouse organization that CJSL is. Zero power or say in anything.
Isn't Richie part of the old boys gang from LIJSL? Easy way for him to keep power without a threat now.
If teams aren't managed under the EDP website and divisions and let's NYSC keep it's league website, then we all know this is a bs move between two whores of youth soccer.

Even if this means a bigger EDP that competes directly with LIJSL, I'm still happy it happened. There will be a consolidation of talent as part of this. Lower level and intermediate teams play CJSL, LIJSL, etc. High level teams play EDP. Now if we could only get rid of ECNL and the few other nonsense leagues as well.

That's my question is NYSC a league or a club? Why would SUSA allow its "brand" to be under another soccer club or is the NYSCL (League) going to continue to operate?

Serious question, what difference does it make to you if it’s managed on EDP website or nysc website?

You can’t be a parent, player or club member with such an idiotic concern

You have no idea what your talking about. CJSL recommended this to USYSA and USYSA approved of this. They were in talks all weekend with CJSL and EDP. NYCS aids now a tier under EDP they no longer have to deal with the bs from ENYYSA. CJSL maintains its carding with EDP as ENYYSA has no say on the matter as EDP doesn’t answer to ENYYSA. ITs a win win for NYCS, CJSL EDP and the clubs snd players. A big loss for ENYYSA, LIJSL and EHYSL as now they can nitpick and tell GG what he can’t do.
And btw USYS is granting CJSL an appeal process.

They are going to move most, not all, of the NYCSL teams over to EDP and EDP is hiring NYCSL's staff to help handle the workload. EDP does have some restrictions on what it can and cannot do, and unlike NYCSL they are adhering to them, so it is still a "win" by ENYYSA.

No because NYCS is just an entity. The league is EDP and EDP did one better, the league is USYS National League. No way the USYS cards arent good in USYS league.
