Along with the entire youth travel lacrosse culture. Some charge $40-50/hr for private lessons, tax free! And you know they are making well over the thresh-hold not to pay taxes.
The only way it stops is if we the parents stop paying the outrageous cost of travel lacrosse but we all know the parents with too much money feel their child will be better off playing for a travel team and paying 4k. It has to stop sometime or we will all be paying 6k before you know it!
Too many kids in school teams still cannot catch and throw and have no clue how to get a GB in a scrum. The better players need opportunities to play with kids who have similar skills... travel gets you there. Yes prices are crazy but my kid is not going to get any better playing with kids who have a huge drop off in skill level... at least that is how it is in our school district
