I think the best way to move forward would be to get the DC assigned, make the squads and create the correct squads in the ladder, not an unofficial team.
You can challenge half way up the ladder each time, so as long as the teams are in the ladder near the beginning of the comp then there wont be too much of an issue in working quickly to the top of the ladder, if that is the squads aim.
If this is the case, then we should appoint the DC now and form the teams.
It's better to start as high on the ladder as possible, rather than trying to work your way up challenging teams that are an unknown quantity.
Even if the teams filter downwards, the experience gained will count towards the long term.
Is a newbie like me able to just start up a conversation with 303?
