When you look at the two usclub offerings: http://www.nplwest.com which is closed to teams not in da & https://www.nationalpremierleague.com which is open, the comp appears much greater in the open scnpl league with first teams while nplwest has a bunch of 2nd or even 3rd teams. Guess open competition can increase the competition level. Cal south only let's you play in this tournment if you played in one of there fall sanction leagues which closes it off to certain teams that might consider if it were open. Would be nice to see something that includes Cal South teams, usclub (npl, ecnl, upsl, super y, etc), ussda and not always have these separate cup & tournments for each. Never get to play some teams or see some friends they way things are now. Tournments and leagues what to segregate not integrate which is too bad.
