Long story short, we have a good group of U10/U11 families in the Charlotte area that are spread between multiple clubs. All the boys are playing top level for their age group (Pre-DA) but the lack of games is affecting all of us. Each club is preaching less games and more training. Kids simply want to play more meaninful games that aren't friendlies or showcases. To combat this, we are looking into the possibility of creating a team in our offseason (summer months) and entering a 2-3 tournaments. Most of the smaller local events are open to anyone but the bigger tournaments we would like to do require teams to be registered with USYS, US CLUB, SAY or AYSO Affiliates. I'm going to start researching how possible this would be but has anyone tried something like this before and have any advice?
