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.
