Cal South State Cup Tournament Director Dave Lamb said the number of Southern California teams involved in State Cup is up 18 percent from last year.

"There is a lot to be excited about," Lamb said. With the soccer competition as good as it is "some of our kids in older age brackets may be able make the national team, and could possibly be involved in the World Cup in 2006."

In addition to this year's California State Cup tournaments, Action Shooters Inc will also be photographing the Nevada State Cup tournaments as well.

"We started doing some tournaments in Las Vegas this year, and the response was awesome," Oliver said. "Now we are scheduled to do their Chevrolet Silver State Invitational, Snickers State Cup and the College Showcase event in March."
