It's not crazy to everyone. Not all kids are division one athletes but may want to play division 2 or 3 or even club lacrosse in college. If your child is still enjoying the game and keeping a stick in hand for the school season some of us find other benefits if our son isn't on the top team. It also seems even if you are not on a top team without playing extra lax it's hard for the kids to keep up with the progress on school teams. Just another perspective.
