Email the clubs, no need to hit a bunch of try outs if they are not looking to replace a player. Good luck to your son.

Can anyone explain exactly what the "commitment" means? I know it isn't binding on either party but is there at least a verbal understating of what grades and test scores will be required of the student and what scholarship money, if any the player will receive?

I do think tryouts are a good way to get some good work in. Always a good way to et to know the other teams coaches. I always told my son to look at them like clinics.

With many new teams popping up, does it pay to have my son play for a club as a freshman or just figure it out during the spring, registering him to play in showcases and send him to camps? He will be playing on his HS team as a freshman playing varsity.

No snide comments needed. Thank you in advance for guidance.

If he is playing varsity for a top team then I wouldn't worry but if he plays for a small school it won't carry much weight..my guess is less then 10 kids will be playing varsity as freshman and I doubt any are at big schools

Since there were 6 8th graders that played varsity last year I'd say there maybe upwards of 20-25 freshman playing varsity. Some may surprise you. Some may surprise you half will be on playoff teams.

Augment school with travel if he is a committed driven player. Rising Soph should play with their HS team whenever possible. But will giving up travel and doing school only be enough. Ask a coach from the college your interested in. If he isn't at that stage then there is your answer.

So my guess is that they didn't start for their Varsity teams which is what I thought..just not sure if it's safe to play Varsity in 8th grade without the risk of getting hurt

In hind sight playing varsity was a smart move but was the best move for our son. I think there are a variety of things that you need to know before allow you son to play.

1). Do not over look the Physical nature of the game. The refs single out the player in the pregame line up at mid field. Letting the other teams know or some of the teams figure out there are younger kids. Some DB kids will go after them. That needs to be changed.

2). It is a time commitment I am sure those kids played travel and it takes its toll and is draining. 9th grade grades mean a ton.

3). for pete's sake it is draining and all but don't stop working out and running. This separates the committed.

4). Starting isn't a be all end all. Time in and quality time in does. Coming out of the box, playing LSM, getting on man up. Heck even non Quality time (especially for goalies).

LI Sting has been around longer than any other LI travel team. They have a huge list of recruits. They tend to focus on Ivy, NESCAC and higher academic D1 and D3 schools. For the player that is already very good, their focus is on College recruiting and they play in many of the Best tournaments. Visit their website, all information available. If your son can play and has a burning desire to get recruited, it might be worth a look see.

Call the director, you'll get all the info you need. Not a program that focuses on winning tee shirts. They focus on college recruiting.

well there should be spots open, last year they lost several of their best players and I am assuming the feedback will definitely start to circulate. don't just go by what the program tells you, go by the feedback and history of the teams and program

Where does one get the feedback?

unfortunately the feedback comes from coaches who are honest and parents of past and current players.

It is easy, all you have to do is ask and most people just speak their mind and don't worry if the feedback is positive or negative

I was at the tryout and if there were holdbacks there they didn't stand out. That's for sure.

Gotta lI've that! Ahh, the irony. You think you are helping your kid, but in fact you put more pressure on him and everyone is snickering about your cheating behind your back!

4 holdback shouldn't make it hard. If there were 4 spots and 8 players vying for those spots then perhaps, but with 120 players trying out 4 holdbacks is less then 4%, really not a game changer

Let's be honest unless the express change some of the kids playing they will not get better as a team and that's ok . Just know that going in that favors take place just like any other sport. I see it in school football already this year. You have to deal with but hopefully the directors and coached see it and pick the right kids
