Talked to a few people today. Was able to confirm a few rumours that have been posted on here over the last bit. 1. BC Soccer has requested the merging of the SMSA with Coastal, ND, Surdel, Tsawwassen / Lander, etc into a new district. Whether its in place for this fall who knows, but BC Soccer does in fact want it to happen. 2. There are 2 new fall club applications in place. One from some members of the Canadian Eagles and one from Vancouver United. 3. Canadian Eagles, GN, and Akal will not participate in the USSL this year. They are running their own league and/or are taking part in other leagues this spring summer. They are still in the USSA Tournament league. The remaining clubs are apparently going to protest by boycotting their tournaments, removing them from the schedule, and even possibly adding new tournaments in their place. 4. The USSL/USSA should start on time.
