Great league for developing teams who are tier 2/3. Diamond division is for low end tier 1 teams. Perfect concept
Seems like their niche is for teams who have trouble consistently scheduling games all year?
This is our second year with the EJ playing in the diamond division and the commentary here is spot on. Travel for the showcases is typically near Hershey, PA or outside of Philly with playoffs being single-elimination. We've had to make two trips to LI and we just make a weekend of it...not a big deal.
My only complaint, if you can call it that, is we're playing teams from NY/NJ which we could play as independent games if we were not part of the EJ.
