As of this date, no commitment forms or registration fees have been received. A team from Seattle, Vancouver and two teams from Southern California (Orange County and Pasadena) are interested in joining next year.
  • ACTION ITEM: When talking to interested teams, it needs to be made clear that the league is looking to enter groupings of teams based on their regional location not just individual teams.
