Any team that qualifies will go. No program is going to turn it down. How do you tell the team you're not going? Everybody who says they won't go on here is from a team that's not trying to qualify.
Another know it all. Sorry but you are wrong. There are teams that go to qualifiers with no intention even if they make it of going to Denver in the end. We are not all sold on Denver being worth the money. But if you are have fun.
Simple: "Little Johnny will not attend". Most parents have figured out that Denver is a $ grab. And the ones that havent figured it out, we all know who they are. You see them on them on the sidelines at every tourney sideline coaching, screaming at refs, acting like aholes..... LI LACROSSE WORLD: WAKE UP! YOU ARE GETTING PLAYED. And the $ your spending on travel lax so your rockstar can get a a scholarship will even out. Save a portion of future college tuition but spend double that the previous 10 yrs on cost travel lax. Ask the bursar at the college that your kid attends if a Denver t shirt qualifies them for a tuition discount. Im shakining my head just laughing.
This is like every other travel sport, a lot of money gets spent. Why is it anybody’s business? We get it, it’s a money grab, we are wasting money, etc etc. Thanks for the info, we will take it under advisement. And most of us will pull our kids ASAP from club because it should be free.
They are all the same. Express outclasses everyone. 91 a distant second. The next batch? Igloo? really? You see that Clown show last season? PAL teams were teeing off on them. And they have gotten even worse from what I hear from other parents. I'll go out on limb and say Rebels (unless their coaching staff is completely clueless, which may be the case) and Regulators will be competitive. Tru Blue? Seriously? Other than watching the one parent make a total dope of himself they have nothing to offer.. thats not a knock on the kids but it is just the way it is. Now lets get this board heated up as I have nothing to do at work......
Express wins most games. Hands down. Just don’t use the term outclass. When 14 out of 32 kids actually play(when it matters), that is the complete opposite of class. There are 18 kids, 18 sets of parents, who actually travel and pay to watch their kids at tournaments, do ground ball drills.
Good point. But shame on the parents that put their kids in that position. And it isnt so much that Express has the 14 best players out there. I have seen 14 better kids on other teams. But they DO KNOW HOW TO COACH those kids which is something most of these other teams are lacking. Rip Exp if you want but they get the most out of those kids while other coaches alienate and actually make their own players/teams worse.. Everyone reading this knows this, And hopefully some of those coaches that claim they arent on this site are reading this also. Stop badmouthing other programs and clean up your own house first. Or resign
