From what I've seen on BOTC regarding conflict of interest in the LI club scene, I think the dynamics in Westchester are different, particularly for the elite teams. That's not to say there aren't conflicts of interest. While there may be HS Coaches on club teams, at the elite programs, HS Coaches are not the club owners. Their compensation is not improved by getting more kids from the HS where they coach. While some of the elite programs have a core of players form one or two schools, they tend to draw from a much wider number of schools. Predators, Primetime, LIENorth draw from all over and there is a lot of interest to join and itís difficult to make their teams. The first two only have one team at each level and appear more interested in performance than numbers, which from what Iíve read, is a source of conflict in LI.
