    If only it were true. I really hope this isn't just wishful thinking.

    All the people in San Diego I talk to that have kids playing in Coast or SCDSL hate it. There are plenty of opportunities to play top teams in tournaments and other leagues (NPL, CRL), so it is hard for most San Diegan's to accept ruining a whole autumn day driving to a place where most of them hate going.

    I have been thinking that if the clubs could just get together along with some Temecula and even OC clubs, identify a few age groups that they feel have 8 or more high achieving/strong teams for an SDDA F1 ("Select" if you must), we could maybe play them out where:
    • 2 SD teams play, it is home field
    • If the matchup crosses county lines they play in Scripps/4S ranch area (SDSC), Del Mar (Sharks) or Carlsbad (Galaxy) home fields,
    • unless both teams are closer to each-other by some practical formula than the alternative home field.
    I know there are a hundred reasons why this might never happen. The thing is that there are enough teams in some age groups to have a flight that is competitive with Coast Gold. Having Surf in the league would help this. I realize that there are field use fees that would have to be shared and a bunch of other excuses. This would definitely help those coaches that have multiple teams. It just takes the all the clubs together agreeing to put the interest of the member families above those of the club. OK, never mind!!

    If it ever does happen, I'm sure it won't be before my kid ages out.

    Where you relocating to? 6 of the Hotspurs 06 players live in La Mesa area. No other flight 2 or better teams in this area right now unfortunately. Also for 2010 girls, Liverpool is about the best option in East county.
    CSC, United, Sporting, Oranje all did not have 2010 girl teams and Hotspurs pulled a team together at the last minute from their rec program.

    I have a boy 06 on Hotspurs and a girl 2010 on Liverpool. Let me know if you want more information on either team (common practice fields and times etc).

    Check out the results for Coronado tournament this weekend. Hotspurs 06 did good against flight 1 teams today.

    The DOC is Ray Taila, and he will also be coaching the Girls 03 and 04. The other coaching assignments are currently being decided. If you have a question about a certain age group, you can call Ray at 619-549-4414.

    All those people have a choice to not play outside the SD County, in fact if a kid is not playing in DA, there is no reason to be going for league games outside the county. But they know what is best and how fun is to be up north just to watch their kid ride the pine. Sorry but not sorry!

    You must be speaking about boys because I have yet to meet a Sd girl who went north as a ulittle for any amount of time and 1) regretted the decision 2) rode the pine.
    We left for better coaching and a better club that tremendously impacted my daughters level of play. Best decision we ever made.
    Plenty of people travel from Temecula down to Surf and Carlsbad and avoid any number of local clubs.

    Of course people are always chasing the pot at the end of the rainbow. Tell me something new.

    I'm speaking about people that has their kids playing in coast and their kids are ridding the pine, but they are happy because they are on a super team, so more power to them. Just don't whine about it.

    I was referring to teams that moved from SDDA to CSL or SCDSL, not players that moved to those teams.
