CPYS/Millennium Partnership FAQ

 

Will my child be able to play with previous team mates? 

Teams will not be based on keeping players together, but balancing competitiveness to make the game fun for all players.  Playing against your friends can be just as fun as playing with them.  In general though, all players in an age group will practice and train together to maximize the effectiveness of our trainers.  With this change, we are moving from school year to birth year rostering for travel, which means many teams will be split based on age level.

Will travel still have equal playing time for kids?
Because this is a developmental league, all kids will get at least 50% play in each game the same as current CPYS travel.  When teams are rostered at the max level for the age group, generally they will have twice the players that are allowed on the field at once.

Will there be tryouts for travel? - Updated June 3rd, 2022
Tryouts are not required, but will assist in making teams competitive in the assigned division.  Please make an effort to get your child to at least one evaluation session.

Will there be tryouts for In-House?
There will not be tryouts for In-House.  The trainer will attempt to balance the teams based on the previous season.  For example, if a team wins all their games by a large margin in Fall 2022, the trainer will attempt to make teams in Spring 2023 that balances the competition.

Can I still request a coach for my child?
As in previous seasons, we will attempt to place your child with the coach of your choice.

How far will we have to travel for games?

Each season in the Indiana Soccer League (ISL), there are eight games for each team, four of which will be at home (Lemon Lake or the SportsPlex).  The furthest you should expect to drive for travel will be South Bend (1 hour from CP).  U10 and younger travel teams do "play dates," where the teams will play two games on four to five weekends.  The games on each weekend will be at the same field.

When will the travel schedule be released?

This season, ISL released the travel game schedule at the end of February for games starting in mid-April.  NWISL (our current travel league) did not release schedules until 2 weeks before the season started, then withdrew the schedule and re-released it the week after games started.  NWISL consists of volunteers and therefore often does not respond to issues and reschedules in a timely manner.  Many issues are left unaddressed.  We expect families to be able to plan much better around travel games with the new league.

Can my child play on another club team and CPYS travel?

No, children can only play for one club affiliated with ISL.  Your child would have to make a choice between playing for the CPYS/MSA travel team or on a team like NWI Lions United or Indiana Elite.  

Can my child still play in an NWISL league?
Yes, your children could choose to play with one of the leagues that participates in NWISL travel.  Lakes of the Four Seasons, Lowell, Dyer, and Schererville all have NWISL travel teams.

Can children outside of Crown Point school district play for Crown Point In-House or Travel?
Yes, any child in the area can play for CPYS.
 

What is the cost for travel?

CPYS/MSA travel soccer will be $200 per season for Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.  That is an increase of $50 over current fees and is in-line with what other clubs in the state charge for this level of competitive soccer.  In comparison, elite clubs run $1200-$2000 for two seasons.  Full scholarships for any families in need will be provided for both in-house and ISL travel, as the mission is for ALL children to be given access to play locally.

Will we need new travel uniforms?
Yes, travel players will need a new uniform kit for Fall 2022.  Millennium has worked with their uniform supplier to get a reduced cost uniform for the CPYS/MSA travel program.  Cost has not been finalized yet, but is expected to be approximately $100.

What is the cost for In-House?

In-House will remain the same for Fall 2022, but will likely increase slightly to cover inflation for Spring 2023.  CPYS would remain the most cost effective recreational soccer club in the area even if the price were to increase 25%. 

What is the player progression?

Please see the charts below for the player development pathway.
