7 coaches and still can't win a meaningful game. Sad


If that's true then your sons team is VERY SAD. Poor kid needs to hit the wall more. You should sign your kid up for the tryout and see if he can compete.


that's all you got, dodging the statement by using capital letters and putting down my son and his team, answer the question for all of the hype and self patting of their backs, why can't this team win a meaningful game

What do you consider a meaningful game? Have you followed the Hawks team? League Championships? Summer Tournament Championships? Not sure what your looking for. Pretty sure they have won more “meaningful” games then your sons team.

Bring him out so he can compete against some of the best.

Just admit it. You wish he was on the team. 🤫

Notice that this thread last renewed on 30 Jul 2018. From the offerings of the last week or so, it's obvious that the forum administrator needs to again kill off this thread and start anew.

nice attempt at deflection again without answering the question and actually, they have not won more games than my son's team....you can start with summer tournament championships, why does this over hyped team routinely come up short in summer tourneys

Anybody going to do the UA Call Back Academy?

Looking at the web site I was surprised to see that its just a one day event. What they are promising and have planned seems like a whole lot to squeeze into a Saturday ending at 6pm.

Cost is $300. Long drive to Richmond to one night hotel does not seem worth it.

Would love to know the team you are comparing to the Hawks. Let us be the judge. You say your sons team has won more games. “Meaningful” games?

Has anyone attended any of the 22 tryouts? Any noticeable movement of players?

I think it's ridiculous clubs even have tryouts going into 10th grade. Why would kids be moving around at this point? You really going to cut a kid now with no where to go?

Really? So a team should feel obligated to keep a player on the roster just because he was on the team the previous year? What if he got passed over and no longer can compete at the level needed? What if he or his parents have been a problem? Players move around when they think they have a better opportunity on another team.

Tryouts prove commitment to the team. Can't assume a player is returning unless you have a tryout.

Yes really. If a kid has been with a team for years is it right to cut him going into 10th grade? If they aren't pulling their weight have a talk with them and their parents and let them know. Let them know they may not play much if they stay and it would be smart to explore other opportunities. But do it early so that they have time to find another home. Just coldly cutting a kid at this point is tough because there isn't much movement and there aren't a lot of open spots on other teams.

Most girls clubs stop tryouts going into high school btw.

Your kid is going to be in for a shock helicopter dad.... He's going get cut, pushed down the depth chart and life isn't going to be fair. Tell your son to grow and pair and go out and compete, Teach him to let the chips fall where they may. If he's that good, he'll catch on with a good club. If he's not college or even starting MIAA material, better that he learn that at a younger age then have false hope. Know your limitations.

If you are an observant parent you should know your kid might be on the fence and you should hit a few tryouts. Be proactive. Maybe you should reach out to the coach and see where he stands. Nothing is guaranteed unless your player is clearly the best at his position.
