LOS ANGELES, CA (May 9, 2022) – The DPL continues to stretch the boundaries of what is possible for their members. The DPL’s mission to develop the player and empower the person in a purposeful and memorable environment has driven several conversations nationally on how we continue to adapt and push to create an unrivalled experience for top performing teams and players.

We are excited to announce the launch of a Brand-New cup competition for the best teams in the league to be held at the Tampa Sportsplex, in Tampa FL between March 16-19, 2023 (

The challenge is to rise to the top. To The Summit.

The Summit hosted by The DPL will create an aspirational event earned through Conference Standings and National Event performances. Individual teams will be invited to compete in a singular event to create a “better on the day” challenge.  This will add quality competition for the most competitive teams in the DPL and qualification is earned on a yearly basis.

An opportunity for these teams to battle for a championship where Nothing is Given, and Everything is Earned. The DPL will host 16 teams across 6 age groups split into 2 levels with 3 games over 4 days. These 8 teams will start at the Quarter Final Stage in a knockout format to determine a Champion. This format fits perfectly into our philosophy.

This Summit Event will also be the mandatory event for all U13 and U14 teams in the DPL for the 2022/2023 Season. We believe that by bringing our youngest teams into the event, showing them the Journey and the quality within the league it will provide an additional motivator for those players to strive to reach the Summit in subsequent seasons. Modeling their game on the players who have gone before them will aid their own development as a player and person.

The Road will be Tough … Welcome to the Journey.
