    I've heard that for the last few months so I'm with you....is it just a rumor?

    Surf may be dealing with an identity crisis? Really only competitive this season in u14 and u16 ECNL (throw in u15 and NAL) when historically the club was more often than not in the National Championship discussions. Is it easier to simply 'walk away' from something historically dominant in or stay and rebuild? I'm sure we will know sooner than later ....

    WARNING before anyone believes and acts upon this information, please check with Surf or ECNL first. Cream puff’s account was just started to ask specifically about this issue.

    Makes me wonder who this Cream puff might be.

    Rumors. That is what forums are for.

    Speaking of DA, ECNL and tracksuits, here is a good one.

    So Sereno merged with Legacy in AZ and now are called RSL-AZ. They got DA.

    So during the first DA ID session the main guy at the club was talking up DA saying how great it is. He then went on to say how lucky the club was due to the fact they were one of the few in the nation that had both DA and ECNL. So if your DD doesn't want DA, there is always ECNL. Some parent asked about DA2/DPL. He quickly responded and said DPL is nothing, not even sanctioned, not worth the clubs time and effort. The club has ECNL after all and that is just a hair below DA.

    Fast forward 1 week to the next ID session. Earlier that day the club found out it LOST ECNL. So the same guy is up there talking to parents. Now he is telling them ECNL is on the way out nationally, it is not terribly good anyway and the club is lucky that we have DPL, a league that is FAR superior to ECNL.

    Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago. In the process of talking up DPL as the pathway to DA, he goes on to state that they walked away from ECNL (vs the truth of it being taken away).

    Someone should have asked him if DPL has a patch like DA and ECNL does.

    This confirmation will come as a shock to all those players on the new ECNL teams, including all the ones who played as Surf ECNL at Man City.

    Are you saying that Surf will not have ECNL for the upcoming season that starts in a few months and for which they have already had tryouts OR are you saying it will not be around for the following season of 2019-2020?

    I'm saying Surf hasn't lost ECNL, at least not as far as any current ECNL teams are aware. I have no knowledge of anything beyond this upcoming season.

    I don't think I am. What I'm saying is that if SD Surf lost ECNL, nobody on next year's ECNL teams is aware of it.

    Surf has been told, 2018-19 will be the last of both. They will have to pick one or the other next Spring. Unless this has changed since Monday.

    So let’s take the disscusion further, what if they choose ECNL? Blues chooses ECNL, Slammers stays. Is ECNL not a more viable choice?

    DA is becoming regionally strong, not nationally next year. ECNL will be strong everywhere except So Cal and Texas next year.

    Would this be a ground breaking decision? An outside of the box decision? Or death for Surf?

    With US soccer holding DA playoffs for next 5 yrs at Oceanside fields, I'm guessing they'll stick with DA

    Contracts can be broken. Plus the Oceanside Complex is more separate from Surf Soccer than Del Mar is.

    That being said its a theoretical question only? I don't think they would have the balls to be a visionary.
