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.

I would not do anything different from stand point of club or recruiting We put our son on the best club team and really built his skills. Also as far as recruiting I would stick to with what we did. Limited showcases and spent the time and dollars on the school camps and got to know the coaches on a more personal level. The one thing I learned from experience, is if your kid is a decent and player and can get in the school on his own he can literally walk on to any team.

So prospect days you think are a beneficial? did you communicate in anyway prior to those days , let them know you were coming etc?

Eclipse will not only make it to Denver but do well. Picking up the Colsey kid will only help.

Primetime will be on the bubble. They're playing, practicing and know what it takes so dont rule them out. Not sure the Colsey departure is a positive or negative to the team but wouldnt rule them out.

EN- Playing plenty but based on Fall results against top teams they're a bit of a long shot...... but on any given day!

Preds- 1 fall tournament, limited practices and no expanded schedule before qualifiers. Combine limited talent and coaching with that approach and they're an also ran.

2way- The fall team was basically half hold backs and they weren't very good. Picked up some players from the area and north but does it make a team.....

First line D, Middies and attackman for all these teams can keep up with the big boys, for the most part, but can any of these teams win faceoffs and get the help they need between the pipes....

Should be interesting.
