Sounds like yet another uneducated response. "Don't bother" - why? Give us some reasons and help us to understand why you think this program isn't worth your phone call. I am a very happy parent whos son is playing two years with EXCEL now. The EXCEL program is about tapping players potential and challenging them regardless of skill level and ability. My son has played in two other programs which were simply not the case and the players that were not the best on the team simply fell to the wayside. To each his own. If you want a good quality program that truly cares ( not to mention charges 1/4 of what the other programs charge) then it's worth a phone call or email.
