Lomo dad - you nailed it. Great post! Only thing I’ve heard, and it’s still the preference of the Spallina parent, is that Spallina rarely makes practices / tournaments. It’s hard to say they are well coached when he’s not there. I know you didn’t claim that, but others who posted did.
They are practicing at SB and he is at everything the past few years when the kids were younger he was not there often but that is not the case anymore. I think it is great for the age group and my daughters team has been invited to practice as well. Every parent for every team knows what they are getting in their situation To each his own
