    The new SCDSL division is trying to offer some benefits, like video taping games and making travel more predictable. In order to to this, teams have to play at common locations, like SilverLakes. The increased cost isn’t much relatively speaking. One can still make a reasonable argument that it is better to simply play home and away without video - I get it. Either way, this is not a big change.

    Hopefully, the majority of the teams will be at the same level so games will be competitive and players can develop. The only thing worse than making the drive between San Diego and LA to play game that ends in a blowout is making the drive between AZ and SoCal for the same.

    With all this being planned, is there an official list of teams that have been invited?
    Looking at 2003 age in particular.

    thanks in advance

    In case JoeZ is watching, there is no need for his league, they could have done all these same things in the Champions division.

    Kinda sounds similar to DPL.

    With the minor difference that you don’t have the clubs (and the parents that repeat what the clubs tell/sell them) telling themselves (and anyone that overhears them) that the same players and teams are now better than they were the day before just because a reorganization has occurred.

    Yawn........hope your daughters and families can enjoy the coming season regardless of which level or league your in.

    I noticed when the Surf Cup schedule was up temporarily last night, looking at the 03 and 02 years aside from DA separate in their own category, seemed the ECNL, DPL and all other league teams were mixed within several categories and brackets.

    Good luck to all!
