That is ridiculous, and given the 125 kids that showed up to the PT 2019 tryout, proves you wrong. There are teams for every ability, and most kids want to play for the best. Kids dont want to play on weaker teams and lose, even if they stand out.

"I think practicing and playing in the toughest most competitive environment is best for a child to learn how to compete and play hard all the time."

Depends on the kid and unless you are a child psychologist, irrelevant.

Depends on the kid? What type of practice environment do you think kids should be immersed...other than one that will challenge them?
