I don't need my kid to go top 10 D1 and cost me 250k to play lacrosse. The kids on the second team go to amazing schools to get a high paying career, not to coach clinics or travel teams.
This is spot on. How long can you market yourself for clinic and showcase appearances, only until the next young lacrosse superstar graduates from college and decides do the same thing and take your place. Obviously, some go on to very successful coaching careers, but no guaranty there.[/quote]
Of course, if that top 10 D1 school is an ivy, Duke, ND, JHU and the like.. that D1 offer is well worth it on the back end
