CPP Rule – Time to plug the hole Empty CPP Rule – Time to plug the hole

The original intention for the CPP has been completely bastardized by teams playing in Lake Highlands and the board is allowing it to happen. Bringing down a D1 player to a lower division for a game is NOT inline with "managing teams for player development purposes, injury, high school participation, and balanced competition."

The boys' league: Club Player Pass may only play in a higher division within their age group. For example: A D2 player may play for a D1 team. D3 Players may play for either D2 or D1 teams. Players may not transfer to higher ranking teams within their own division.

The girls' league: "Foster the development of players by allowing them to participate within their own club at a higher level of competition without the commitment of a roster transfer."

BUT then the rules go on to state:
"A Club Pass Player may not “play down” for a team in a younger age group (e.g., an under-15 Club Pass Player may not play on an under-14 Receiving Team)"

The rule leaves a huge, gaping hole for clubs to bring down players from higher divisions. This is FAR from John Sutter's, US Youth Soccer president (2011), intention to "assist balanced competition with, and against, like skilled and like-motivated players."

The Lake Highlands board knows teams are taking full advantage of the hole, but what's worse is they are letting it continue to happen.

P.S. I know I am spitting in the wind because you just have to read the headlines (Wells Fargo) to know what it is all about.

Yes you are.

At this point in time LHGCL is totally beholden to the Big 4 clubs wishes (Feet doesn't really matter) for their continued viability.

I think they are just following what is going on nationally. We moved to Seattle and my son's team yesterday used 4 CPPs due to injuries and conflicts ( 1 brought down from higher division team, 2 brought up from lower division team plus one from A team in the next lower age group). Plus, the rule helps clubs send competitive teams on to the next level of competition like Regionals. As players move around at the end of the season it's good to be able to backfill teams.

The problem is that it is not being used for "development", it is used for winning and winning only.  I am betting that 9 times out of 10 in NTX, it is used to bring a better player from a higher division or league to play down to help get a win.  With JDL, the poor girls in LHGCL are having to deal with it a lot more.  That just means that those on the bench get to ride the pine even more.  Does a win cure all the hurt feelings for the DD and her parents?  I hope not.
