Supply and demand for a very high quality program in a lax crazy area? Also, they only have one team per grade so they do not have the revenue support of 2 or 3 teams per grade like their main competitor Express.

While they have boys teams from 2012 down to the 2017 age groups, they only have two girls teams : one for the 2012 and one for the 2017 groups. Are they going to expand into other girls age groups?

On pricing, there guys are $1700.00 which is about $500.00 more expensive than others. Now, their June camp is included for five days which might explain the difference. Any feedback on their camp? Not exactly sure that it draws anyone outside of the club based on the web sites.

Ouch...I'm sure this post is not part of the fl$ marketing plan! Aside from the cost...it seems to be a well respected program - at least in the higher grades.

high quality program?
supply and demand?
fl$ DEMANDS more money and the dilussional parents SUPPLY it.
is that what you mean?
fl$ does nothing more than Express, 91 etc. and yet they charge a lot more $
One good team 8th and a gtreat team at 11th grade. Thats it.

Who has a gun to your head forcing your kid to play for fl$? If they can get it, more power to them...if not, they will meet the market...

My son plays for the 2012 fl$ team and if it wasn't for them he wouldn't have made it to the college he is going to now. They have there own recruiting pages through there website that the player can set up there own profile and send it to college coaches. The older teams are 1300$. We had to high quality coaches that wern't PARENTS. They have a full time worker for the company. They have have spent numerous hours contacting college coaches for my son. Learn the facts before you open your mouth.
