R3PL teams get selected a few days after Regional competition. There
are only a couple of divisions/age group. The play dates have been pre-selected in meetings that lead up to the selection of the teams. Georgia Soccer didn't require declaration until July 20 and then there's the late period (another 7-10 days). Then the volunteers begin sorting the divisions. The U13 boys alone has more teams than all of R3PL. Relax, enjoy and know that soccer will dictate a lot of your life for the next few years. Then it will be over and you'll miss it or not, but it'll be over.
