Sad when you think your child is needed on the other team and your son barely plays now. (After being a starter and having a big role on the other team)

Sad when he finally does get in the game he looks pretty mediocre and shows no growth.

Pick wisely. The grass isn't always greener.

Parents have to remember that these big programs that carry a lot of kids do so to make money.

Lax parents need to be less clueless.

If a kid leaves your team to play for another team, you might want to ask why.

What exactly is considered a "big program?" A full roster? The ability to sub?

PSA: if you want to rebuild a fledgling program, you get more flies with honey than vinegar.

Sometimes the grass is greener.

I love the big programs only want money statement. Yes the big clubs are more for and about money. But guess what you do get what you pay for is 99% of the cases. Yes most of the top clubs skim and charge 400 to 600 more then they really need to. But these clubs have the pull to play in the top tournaments and also to make sure your son if good enough or really if he is not good enough to get them into these top showcases. I have friends with 2019 kids on the cheap clubs and on the big money clubs. And the kids on the big money club have the pick of the litter when it comes to showcases and college camp days. We can agree these are/might be money grabs but you have the option when you play for a big club.
