GH Swarm was a fine program that stayed in the lane most appropriate for their player’s commitment, interest and collective skill set. Changing name to Mesa only costs family 5 times more, enriches a few and pushes the team outside of their lane ensuring much frustration for all involved ahead- but for those cashing the parent’s checks.
What is the point? In two years these kids will be in high school. Those capable of making Severna Park High’s team will do do whether they played reasonably priced Swarm or rip-off priced Mesa. Unfortunately, from why I have seen of their play, most will not make the high school’s team. Again what is the point?
Green hornets lax has been a dumpsters fire since club lax began. Diamondbacks was established because GH did not want a travel club. GH wanted to still grow it’s Rec programs. All the younger talented kids went to DB’s killing the GH Rec program. DB merge with APi and Arden. Severna park high may have won a few state titles in recent years but there is no talent in the pipe line to continue domination of AACO lax. It will take Mesa a few years to get SP back on track but heading in the right direction. Mesa will be building a api like faculty basically making api useless to the SP kids.
Fair on the dumpster fire. They stayed cheap while being in one of the wealthiest communities in the state. While I think Mesa could become a strong elite program I would be surprised if they actually help Severna Park lax. They've already taken lots of kids outside of SP and will need to as those kids have already gone to other club programs.
