My question is, who determines whether a team is "Recreational", "Select", or "Elite"? If anyone can throw a title on a team name and jersey without proving themselves before hand, then why even classify? Show me a clear-cut definition of what classifies any team to be deemed more than a rec league team and the source of reference so that I can research it.
I guess my ideology would be that in order to rise amongst the ranks, there should be a certain amount of wins that have to be achieved in order to declare one's team such a status and not just stating that one is "Select" or "Elite" because a coach wants to.
Don't get me wrong, there are some teams that deserve their status and live up to it by the way that they play, but so many do not.
All I've really seen is that the status title is good for donations and sponsorships more than anything.
If your team lives up to it, I give you mad props.
Others simply perpetrate.
