Dropping a Charter
Posted 11 March 2019 - 05:43 PM
We would like to drop (or mothball) one of our Charters.
Has anyone done this and have guidance?
It would be significantly less administrative overhead.
The Charters share a single town/geography.
We don't have any operational 'advantage' to running two Charters.

I have heard of small leagues (less than 200 kids) having trouble combining charters, but I've also heard of bigger leagues (like yours) having no problem going down to 1 charter. Really all depends how you pitch it and how Willy P is feeling that day when they review your information.
The top league in our district (and one of the best in NJ) consolidated a couple of years ago after trying for 2 or 3 years. They used to have 8 majors teams in each charter, but went down to 4 in each. Now they only have 6 or 7 teams total. I think WP made them wait a couple of years to see if their numbers went back up and possibly also to prevent combining just for tournament play for that year. After 2 or 3 years they finally got approval to combine back down to a single charter. Numbers at the younger levels just continued to dwindle.
