Just saw the Presidents Cup schedule. Why are we flying to Dallas to play one game Friday, two games Sat, and one game late Sunday?? It is also against mostly weak teams.There should of at east been a championship. This is ridiculous waste of time and money. My daughter is missing school for this nonsense that could have been done in one day!
Why are you asking the rest of us? If you don’t want to go, don’t go.
That ship has sailed. Just don’t see the point. Could have been a much better event closer to the home of 90% of the teams over less days. Who decides these silly schedules and venues?
Just be thankful you don’t have to travel that far for ALL of your daughter’s tournaments! Count your blessings!
It's meant to be a recruiting tournament offering a chance for players to play and be seen by coaches, which is why it does not include freshman. The debut is a waste of $$$. It follows the IWLCA annual meeting, so every coach in the country is already there and stays for the tournament. It's a great opportunity for those recruiting. They have to host that event in a place that is affordable for the coaches and Florida is NOT. Plus, it is a national organization so they are trying to be more middle of the country. Agree that it would be a much more fun opportunity is we got to play teams that we don't typically play that are still correct level and offering competitive play - but that is not alway easy to achieve. Championships happen late on Sundays and people need to get home for school.
West Coast players spends thousands to get an opportunity to showcase and play. Thousands. Girls lived 7 weeks in hotels with their parents this summer. I met them at events. Most are so fortunate not to have to do that. West coast players have no choice but to do that if they want to play DI lacrosse. stink it up or stay home.
There is no championship, and I highly doubt any coaches are hanging around for Sunday afternoon games. There is no reason to schedule a single game on Sunday afternoon. There should be two games Friday and two Saturday, or one Friday and three Saturday. If absolutely necessary, Sunday play should be over before noon.
