Los Angeles City College

Who:  

Top Players From SoCal

The LACC-Rockfish Spring League will resume playing again this weekend and all games will be at Los Angeles City College, which is located at  855 N. Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90029-3516.   

The LACC-RSL is a unique spring league, different than any other league in the SoCal region.  It's so different in fact that Division I coaches (as well as all D-II, III, NAIA and JUCO coaches) have been receiving word from LACC Head Coach Mike Miller that the event is available to coaches for spring evaluations, because each of the players participating is actually an enrolled student at LACC and receives one unit of college credit for the course.  Thus players participating are actually playing at an institution at which they are enrolled, and no different than a coach visiting their high school campus (where students are also enrolled), in our view this should qualify under the new NCAA bylaws.  We've heard varying reports from several sources about whether D-I coaches will be in attendance or not, but remember, the NCAA is now out of the certification business for the spring, and they've stated that (a) players can be viewed either at events which are sanctioned by a high school or two year association, or they can be viewed on their own campuses where they are enrolled.   Whether D-I coaches show up this weekend or in the future is something that only time will tell, but Division II, III, NAIA and JUCO coaches have always been permitted to attend, and we expect to see more than a few there this weekend checking out some of the best players in Southern California.

Here's the Saturday March 23, 2002 schedule:

Time LACC Men's Gym   LACC Women's Gym
10:00 a.m. H-Squad v. Dolphins  
11:30 a.m. Dolphins v. Swordfish  
12:00 p.m.   Hammerheads v. H-Squad
1:00 p.m Orcas v. Inland  
1:30 p.m   Swordfish v. Barracudas
2:30 p.m. Inland v. Hammerheads  
4:00 p.m. Bluefins v. Orcas  
5:30 p.m. Barracudas v. Bluefins  

The women's gym is about 300 yards away from the Men's gym, right next to the tennis courts on Heliotrope.  There is plenty of on-campus parking, but if you park on the street on Saturday, be sure to feed the meter otherwise you'll be ticketed.

On Sunday, March 24, all of the games will be in the LA City College men's gym.  Here's the schedule:

Time LACC Men's Gym
9:00 a.m. Dolphins v. Swordfish
10:30 a.m. Orcas v. Dolphins
12:00 noon IEBP v. Hammerheads
1:30 p.m. Swordfish v. Orcas
3:00 p.m. Hammerheads v. Belmont Shore
4:30 p.m. Barracudas v. IEBP
6:00 p.m. Belmont Shore v. Bluefins
7:30 p.m. Bluefins v. Barracudas

LACC is easily reached from anywhere.   It's about three blocks north of the Hollywood Freeway (the 101).  Exit at Vermont and head north.  The school is located on the west side of Vermont, between Melrose on the south and Santa  Monica Boulevard on the north.  If you go past Santa Monica, you've gone too far.... There is on-campus parking.  Just remember that if you park on the street on Saturday, you'll have to feed the meters or pay the consequences.

There is an admission charge of $ 3 (good all day), but it's worth it.   We don't have the complete rosters for the "outside" teams (like IEBP, Inland, H-Squad, or Belmont Shore), and sometimes quite frankly, it seems that neither do the guys who run those teams either, but at least the Rockfish's own team rosters are somewhat settled now.  Here are the players we know about who should be there this weekend, all except for the players at MLK, Compton Centennial and anyone else who is on one of the team participating in the State Finals.
