I recently got a email from our club directors (redacted) about the costs for this year:

---
AAA and BBB have received a lot of questions regarding fee's. One of the best ways to reduce the cost of fee's is through fundraising! If there is a parent who wants to be in charge of setting up a fundraiser, the funds received can go towards their daughter's fees and the rest of the funds can go towards other players and team expenses.
---

This club is in AACo and is charging $1700 for 2018 which is a hefty increase from last year. From my informal enquiries it looks like they took everyone who tried out (like last year). Same for other age groups. From what I can tell, they are up there in price.

Is this common? Setup a fundraiser where the parent gets most of the benefit and the balance goes to the club? Seems very cutthroat, like every parent for themselves.

Not sure why you would accept spot on this team . I am betting there is a reason they can't get players. 1700 a year is not high if they are playing in great tournaments and if it includes uniforms and tournament fees. If it is a sketchy club why stay?

Ugh...friends, missed a couple of other club tryouts due to vacation, and practice isn't too far. At this point, it is the only option. I'll be better prepared next year.

Didn't get a list of tournaments but think they said 4 and all would be one day events, ie no overnights.

Question - is it better to be playing 3rd line middie vs 2nd defense sub? Not sure if shes getting moved around a lot because her all-around game has improved (possibly) or being low on the middie totem pole limits her time on the field. Serious feedback please, I'm more inclined to let it play out through spring to see what the deal is, but we also thought she was very on the fence about making her club team...thanks.

It's fall. That M&D 2024 team will be just fine.

I would expect a coach at the 2024 level to be moving players around. They are still young and should be learning all of the positions. My advice is let it play out through fall ball. Fall ball season is when coaches try to figure out players positions and lineups for the upcoming spring season. Don’t take much stock in it yet. It’s good for your daughter to learn all the positions. That’s what fall ball is about. If it continues when NGLL starts up in March, then have your daughter self advocate and ask the coaches questions so that she understands. 7th graders should be learning how to communicate with coaches now, more so than mom and dad. I’m sure it will all work out by spring.

Dear Dad,

This is a serious reply ......

If you're daughter is not in the position she wants by summer and doesn't seem to be gaining any traction on you're current team - but you think she has the game and talent to be a middie or first string player somewhere else - move her next year. Nothing will replace playing time. If she could play on a team that is not as strong as your current team - but play middie and/or not be a 2nd or 3rd string player then move her. If not, you're wasting your time and money.

On the other hand ..... If you want to be able to say she plays for the "top" team or for a certain color team (hint hint) then stay. You'll get the whole story of how it's still good for you because you're practicing against the top players in the age group - etc.etc. (I wish I would've come up with that myth. Seems to be floating around alot of different sports too - not just lax). But there's nothing that will replace playing time. Your daughter will stagnate while the girls who are playing develop.

Yes certain clubs offer good clinics, yes college coaches come watch their teams, they say they have the best coaches (although that's debatable), yes they get in or run tournaments, etc, etc... but none of that will do your daughter any good if she is not on the field playing - and playing in games not practices. And if she is a third line middie the most she'll play is 1/3 of a game.


There's a ton of clubs around now. Be HONEST about your daughter's level of play and abilities and look around. Find a clubs who's team is not completely terrible and move your daughter to a team where she could be a contributor and not a 3rd line middie or 2nd line defender.

Again - be honest and think about what your want for your daughter

Once they get to 9th grade everyone has to play at least half the game so it doesn't matter what line you are on.

If it's to the half the game comment, that's the truth. Once the girls get to high school, even some 8th grade showcase tournaments, everyone is required to play at least 50% of every game so that they get the same exposure. Not that some girls don't play a lot more than 50%, but every girl has to play at least 50% of each game.

This your first time through this process? It's why teams that dominated through 7th and 8th grade stop dominating in high school. Can't ride the horses the whole game.
