I dont think you understand just how competitive it is out here for
players. There were 38 Gold teams that registered in Southern California
alone. That is basically North Los Angeles to San Diego. Then another 20
or so 18&U A. Add to that the 40 plus 16&U teams and you can see finding
quality players that fit your team gets a bit hard. Players here have
much more choices then other areas. This is now our contract signing
period and once players have signed the teams cannot approach them to
play on their team so there will be this last minute rush by teams
trying to fine tune their rosters.
Now try to imagine if Socal only fielded 3 Gold teams from that talent
pool. Now that would be interesting.
