You don't need to be a national power to sustain a club, just find your niche. Look at Fusion. They tend to struggle on the field and go to less prominent tourneys, but they get lots of kids coming out each year as they have great coaching and kids who can't get playing time on clubs like Freedom, Mesa, Roughriders, Brotherly Love, etc. who still want to play club lax. No reason a SoChesCo Club couldn't exist.
I agree a club could exist in Southern Chesco, but no need to call out struggles of any local clubs as an example. We should all work together to promote lax in this area. Fusion has a great box program called PennLax which is there focus and they do a great job teaching indoors and out.
