I guess your son was selected

Totally disagree. They should mix kids after each game. My son struggled defensively on an overall bad team, I felt worse for the goalie. It's a popularity contest. How many SYO kids didn't make it? After the 2nd game it looked like an NBA all star game with everyone hogging and trying to get their shot off.

My son was selected this year, but I agree, it was run much better. Last year my son was on a field with only 1 coach, and all the other coaches only watched the one team. It seemed that last year if your coach wasn't there, you weren't getting looked at. This year the coaches were watching both fields. Some kids did get shafted that would normally make it because they were on teams that either had the one ball hog who took all the shots, or they just weren't able to show off their skills. These things are definitely political, as most tryouts are. Congratulations to those who worked hard to make it and were rewarded.

That is how so many of these go. I was at the Suffolk one, and we saw much of the same. I didn't pay attention to who the players were by number, so I have no idea if one school has more kids going than they should. I guess I will find out next Friday.

People need to stop wasting money attending this showcase. Its a farce run by the club owners of FLG and Igloo and the results have little to nothing to do with the tryouts. Coaches get together after the showcase, throw the results in the garbage, orders a few beers and discuss who they want to attend. Save everyone time and just invite the kids you want and stop stealing the money of the parents of the kids you don't. Oh wait, you they won't do that because its a easy 20K collected, per session, per county. And for those who think I am just a disgruntled parent who's son didn't make the cut, no. Sadly I know how this really works and I want no part of it and the people who run it.

The Suffolk 2021 Final 50 was more like the final 70. If you invite that many kids, have two games. It was a joke.

Same for the boys 2021. Apparently its not required for some kids to come to the tryout. Such a joke. Don't waste your money on this thing.

How did the summer go for everyone? My son is very eager to see if he gets any calls on 9/1. It is a little nerve racking not really having an idea of the interest. Being coached at the showcases by college coaches and going to the school prospect days are the only real way to have any idea. Even there they are limited in what they can say. Good luck to all, and have a great August.
