Lol. But parents go willingly to teams, regardless. If you join a team with more than 9 middies and 6 attack and 6 poles, you are just plain .....! You fill in the blanks.

At this age your kid doesn’t even have to play travel! Play school, train and do showcases and prospect days. Don’t give these bloodsuckers your money

Agreed, prospect days are the best bang for your buck. That, and the NYS Regional Games for sure. If your kid is good he'll be seen.

Fair enough, but it's tough to argue the exposure. First round, Top 50 Game & the Nassau/Suffolk game are packed with college coaches. Plus, if your HS coach is doing his job he'll be networking on your son's behalf based on the schools that your son is interested in.

I have a quick question. I’m looking at some of these travel teams. How does 91 smash have a goalie who lives in Massachusetts? I also noticed that the Wolfpack goalie was form North Carolina. Do these kids never go to practice and just show up for tourneys?

Smash also has an attackmen from upstate NY. A goalie from North Carolina. You can keep going with these teams. CoachC has players from Indiana, Florida and Texas. They call themselves LI teams, but really they are national teams. Anything to win, right? Pathetic.

travel lax is starting to flounder because the system is tainted! It’s a business and they want the biggest and best, winning teams draw the money but if your kid is okay or a late bloomer your just paying the tab for the club. This is not what they preach but this reality!

Gotcha. But they obviously can’t practice with the team. So they don’t practice with the team all year and then show up for tournament season ??

At this stage, this summer, fall and next summer is the time. It should be just being on a competitively built team. Tournament wins don’t mean anything any longer. If your son is on a team that was not competitive in the fall, you are wasting time money. Unless, your son just likes playing and enjoys the game and doesn’t care about recruiting, which is all good. If your sons team is focused on recruiting and is playing in showcase events this summer, you must compete. Coaches will watch the more competitive games more closely. Also, find a team where you maximize playing team.

With showcases and prospect days you don’t even need travel! Play school and do the rest on your own and save a ton of money. The amount of kids getting looks playing travel is small, don’t get stunk in by the travel club sh-heads!

You can been seen at any school you want. Go to a prospect day and if your son has a good showing and has true interest in the school, send a follow up email to the coaches. And even if they don’t respond, and it’s after Sept 1, follow up again with film either way.. Also don’t be shy to ask your HS or Club to email the coach as well. If still nothing, focus on other options, but stay active. A coach mentioned to us at a recent prospect day, that he watches less than a minute of your sons highlights. He recommended keeping the film under 3 minutes with the best stuff first. He also said be mindful of the music. And most importantly be sure to show real interest in the school, coaches want to know that. Take it or not, just sharing some my experiences.

It doesn't really matter because some of the kids will not get into any significant academic college. They'll wind up working for my son at a fraction of the pay scale. But hey, they were great in High School! SMH
