    Many of the Nor Cal ECNL/DA play in SIlverlakes these days. With that said, it may be hard for any Nor Cal side to win surf.

    I just looked at the brackets for Silverlakes and you are right about the number of Nor Cal teams playing there. It looks like San Juan, Mustang and MVLA are all sending their teams to Silverlakes. That will be a great showcase event.

    Agree w/ A Morgan “US Youth Soccer has gotten Worse…”

    We have GDA teams going undefeated, playing another Norcal Team in the final four w 10 goals for & 0 against to win. Lopsided platform that’s promised Best of the Best…

    Now we have two Best of Best Showcases Surf & Silverlake with Best of Best teams spread in both showcases…

    All Pay to Play -

    My look at only the GU15 top groups at silver lakes vs Surf Cup: I’m happy we are going to Surf. SL is almost all ECNL with teams we will play in the showcases. Surf has a slew of GDA teams thrown into the mix. I hope that Surf continues to make a bracket of the best DA ECNL and NPL.

    On the boys side, the competition at SL in 2018 was weak compared to Surf Cup. Surf Cup had 2 dedicated DA brackets.

    If you look at the 06B brackets in 2019 Silverlake has 7 teams. Surf Cup has 4 brackets with 16 teams in each. There is good competition for all levels.

    Teams playing in SL are "trophy hunting" (*ahem* Mustang)

    Surf has always been hard to win, regardless of how good you are. At the level it's played, one little mistake can kill you.
