Do they still penalize kids that they assume are going to Chaminade? I've heard horror stories about 6th, 7thand 8th graders who get nothing but bench time because they're not going to play at GC public schools.
Haven't gotten there yet, but I have heard the GC34 program prohibits kids from trying out for the summer team in their 8th grade year if they even plan on taking the CAtholic entrance exam
Yes, they do. It's a "Scarlet letter"
Never show your sons cards or ever insinuate that Cham/ Kel/ St. A/ Friends is even a remote possibility. If your son is not part of the HS plan he is"out" in summer club scene.
In the past though, the kids from both GC and Cham played on some amazing club teams together.
