State Cup Venues

Is Lancaster no longer being used?
1. Mayors Youngers (2011-2008. 2007 and 2006 haven't been posted yet) - Mayors Venue Info
Opening Weekends include Ryan Park, Galway Downs, Lancaster, Silverlakes, San Bernardino.
Knockout rounds are Silverlakes and Oceanside

2. Governors Youngers (2011-2008. 2007 and 2006 haven't been posted yet) Governors Venue Info
Opening weekends include: Ryan Park, Galway Downs, Silverlakes
Knockout rounds are Galway Downs, Silverlakes and COACHELLA CROSSROADS COMPLEX

Looks like we have a new venue near the Casinos of Coachella Valley. The field complex appears to share a parking lot with Spotlight 29 Casino and is a few miles from Fantasy Springs.

Anybody know about these changes? Not sad to see Lancaster go, but I don't think San Bernardino is much better. When will Great Park be involved? And isn't Surf Cup Sports Park/Del Mar usually part of the mix?

All about the cheapest places to play. CS must have a special cut rate deal to send people 100miles to play out in desert or something, not sure that's any better than Lancaster.

Was at San Bernardino this weekend and fields look and played amazing they do spend a lot of money in upkeep for those fields

Im sure they get complaints from people that live out that way about always having to come to OC/San Diego. But if you live in a less populated area, you need to expect that you'll have to travel a bit for tournament games.
 
We played at a tournament this past weekend at Coachella crossroads. They had plenty of parking (were charging $10 to park near field by the casino) but there was a large dirt lot on other side so parking was not much of an issue. Fields were in ok condition. Not much amenities at the field but it’s located right off the freeway.

Just another reason NOT to play State Cup

What are the State Cup alternatives and how many teams/clubs utilize those alternatives and don't play in State? Genuinely interested as it's something I'm considering for our olders especially. I believe Cal Cup is an alternative but I don't know much about it.

The way you should be looking at it is State Cup nothing more than just another tournament. Alternatives are: play a local tournament or out of State tournament.

Not quite. The winners of older (12 and above) and higher level (National and Presidents) divisions qualify for play against other State Champions. Cal South even kicks in a little travel money (and sometimes the play is local anyway).

8am game in Coachella on 2/8. Takes 2 hours to get there from where we live and field time is usually an hour before kick-off. :confused:
Rather be in the SD area if we have to travel 2 hours...

Perhaps it's already been discussed on another thread but I heard this weekend that it is confirmed that State Cup will be moved to late November/December next year.
It's about time!!! Wrapping up the season in November to then wait 2.5 months later to play makes no sense. Wrap it all up by December and then let kids take a 2 month break or so and begin all over again in March.

Appreciate your enthusiasm but you gotta know there will be no break and that gap will quickly fill with tournaments.

You are 100% right! But hey at least we are not trying to cram so many practices, scrimmages, tryouts, tournaments between end of December and January.

It feels like these kids and parents have so much going on right before state cup. Then we wonder why kids get burned out from playing soccer!.
