Someone reached out to me expressing interest in my son joining there 2026 team. I could not get any sensible answers to the questions I asked. So like the show Shark Tank...for that reason I was out!

Based upon what you wrote, in hindsight, I made an excellent choice!

My sons team played Dukes at Long Island Lax Clash this summer, the 2023 team had 11 or 12 kids show up. From talking to the team parents, the players that showed up were from all over the country and only found out there wasn’t going to be any players showing up until they went to the field on day 1. The 23 team got absolutely destroyed and played in high heat and humidity without adequate subs. I actually felt sorry for the kids that showed up and for the parents who obviously fell for this guys ridiculous excuse for a program. The coach who was there seemed to be a decent knowledgeable coach, but what can you do with a dozen players? Did not see Coach G, too busy cashing checks at the bank??? Or Didn’t want to answer the parents complaints???

it was an interesting model in that it was designed to work in conjunction with your typical crazy club situation. At the end of the day, the concept of meeting and playing with kids all over the country was unique; the experience to play at the D1 fields was kind of cool (gimmick? oh, yeah... none the less very cool).

The problems are:
1. No communications.... seriously, the day before traveling to a tournament in some far away state you get one poorly worded email
2. Didn't capitalize on creating a team - when you bring a bunch of kids together you need to get them hanging out and building some bonds. This didn't happen at any age group
3. See #1; the only time you heard from them is when they wanted more $$$$$ which was constant and unending. Otherwise, your son could catch on fire during a game, get medivac'ed off the field and you wouldn't get a reply
4. Talked a good game but didn't follow through on anything - from the beginning - all the things they preach; the grade requirements, the "personally calling the coach to accept the offer", etc. is all garbage. Lou couldn't name half the kids on the field; called them by jersey numbers and actively ran away after games so parents didn't have a chance to ask any questions.

I'd have been better off spending all that money on some freakish gimp to abuse me with a D pole for a few months. That may have been cheaper, honestly.
