Question for all parents of hs kids, college kids etc. if you could go back to 6th grade with your son, what would you do differently as it relates to travel programs, showcases , prospect days etc..., what was a waste, what was worthwhile. I think this would be very educational. [/quote]

My advice to a 6th grade parent would be to be patient and let it develop on its own pace. Don't try to over manage it. Just let your kid learn the game correctly, play and ultimately the appropriate opportunities will present themselves. No need to scramble to get to prospect days or stress on making the premiere showcase in the 9th or 10th grade.

Now that the mania of early recruiting is no more it is somewhat easier than a couple of years ago when 9th graders were routinely being "committed" and parental anxiety was through the roof. Now, kids are not getting any sort of looks until the 11th grade, when they are more fully developed and their athletic and lacrosse abilities are more fairly judged. In spite of what many club coaches will tell you, you truly can be patient, sit back and see how it develops for you child.

If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't have signed my son up for any showcases prior to his soph. year. Being on a good club team is certainly important (and I would define a good club as one that has good coaching, plays a competitive schedule, and most importantly one my kid is happy being on and feels that he's improving). I wish I had sent him to more true instructional camps and clinics.

Good for him, couldn't be happier for the kids. Eclipse will now be more dominant than Primetime. Do you think others will leave Primetime now?

I am glad they found a home, but what about the kids that tried out for eclipse last July in 100 degree weather, paid their money and are now possibly losing spots to kids that are only getting a spot because of their father - seems pretty crappy

Only 1 kid added per team. Not a mass exodus. Teams always add additional players if they can help.
