The funny thing is very few parents of kids that play for True, Mesa, Sidewinders, etc even bother to try out for Hawks. If my sons ability were decent enough and I were committed to paying full cash to have my son play in a club team I would have him tryout for several of the top rated teams each year full knowing I could default to Mesa or True if he did not make the cut. Instead most parents simply default for a B team, pay full freight and watch their kids development bump along. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
This post isnt the floppy hat, jean short wearing tobacco spittin' Hawk dad. Very well said
