    If enough teams forked over the $1k there be divisions but I doubt there will be many age groups, maybe 2-3.

    The name I dunno....reminds me of.....

    Emails went out today for Discovery League participants. SCDSL will be finalizing Tier 1 placements by end of the week so the lists should be up next week

    Do you have a choice? i.e. do you just get placed in the league/flight and they are just notifying you with the email or is the email to see if you accept or not?

    I have a feeling this league is going to be a bigger pain than it is worth. Just more travel for certain teams.

    There is no such thing as the "Discovery League." It is the Discovery Division, within the SCDSL.

    "Games will all be played at Silverlakes in Norco — unless teams from the same area like San Diego are scheduled to play each other in which case games will be played at the Surf Cup Sports Park in Del Mar." In theory if Teams are from Santa Barbara ... then yes they will all travel to Norco. But ... Norco is kinda central to SoCal.

    "Convenient scheduling with games being played youngest to oldest similar to DA and ECNL formats" and all at one location, will certainly help coaches and does make it easier for clubs to devote filming resources to a single facility (to the extent multiple teams from that club) are in.

    Agreed, but there was no need to create a new name. They could have just added all these perks to the Champions division.

    The team fee is what double? Normal league fees? Part of that is field costs so something "new" is more likely to get financal support.

    Yes but San Diego teams lose home games against non local teams.

    B03 only has 10 teams, I thought all the divisions would have 11 for a 10 game season. NextBigthing, where did you find the lists of teams? Thanks.

    True, but at least they are not driving an extra 45min to an hour out to Crescenta Valley

    Yeah, this is just silly. "Champions League" automatically implies best of the best (free marketing from UEFA), and we know Europe is best of the rest. "Discovery" is neither here nor there.
