Heard this happened at 3D a few years ago when several players joined and team was solid but then a large group left to join PT together, so 3D was left very weak.
Is this true? Why all the program hopping for this group? Frustrating when the team potential looks one way at tryouts but then you find out that many of the skilled players declined to go to another program.

This isn't a PT 2020 thing. Each year always a batch of players from a program look to switch to another one for various reasons (club folds, bad coach, one influential family, playing time, and so on) . Kids from certain towns/clubs move as a little pack because they know one another. And because many are lemmings. Haven't seen a tryout yet where all the top talent accept the invite. Just not reality.
