Haha! Lots of people make mistakes in their private lives. This has nothing to do with his coaching abilities. Are you perfect? Or just a DB trying to stir the pot out of jealousy. Nobody’s “flocking” away. FACT. Teams are just fine. Now go crawl back into your hole and figure out why your daughter still can’t catch the ball!

Seriously, no offense but are you new to this site? Top Guns and Yellow Jackets have been falling apart for years according to posters here. Reality is quite different.

Coaches seem to be willing to cut kids for the best players always...sorry to hear things aren't going so well.

Coaches continuously being switched is a reality is it not?

You must be blind to the fact that who we surround our kids with is important...if you're ok with creepy men with a bad rep coaching your kids thats fine. Kids have also been leaving a few programs like crazy over the last year, one of the reasons Shannon took over our team to begin with.

Agree with this...it's a Laxxshow recently only thing worse seems to be elevate from talking to family friends. Half their teams bailed last year and moved to other teams.

Totally agreed on this. We left the program last year and have never been happier. Everyone talks so much trash about each of these orgs but in reality some of these clubs have coaches and directors who will go above and beyond for their kids. I'm glad I found one of those teams finally after my older daughter had a bad experience at another club.

You must be blind! Half the dads on the teams my kids have played on over the years drink beer all day at the tournaments, then drive their kid home. And if you think it’s any different when your kid plays in college you’re going to be in shock to find how much drinking is done by the parents groups. It’s not your job to police what others do. Worry about yourself and your own kid! I’m also not sure what you mean about kids leaving programs like crazy. My daughter plays on a top TG team. We are very happy and none of the starters are leaving. I think people are trying to stir the pot maybe because their daughter is not getting played enough?

The fact that you're admitting that you drink all day and then drive your kids around is next level parenting.

As a parent on this team I can assure you that all of us are not driving out kids around drunk

Sorry dude, you got the wrong guy. I make observations, and mind my business, which is to get my daughter recruited to a good school.

Don’t go to Legacy or YJs team has well over two lines unless you do YJ d team. Legacythrowing 24s onto 25 and 23 teams to keep them around for next year in case anyone bails. Great players but organizations are such a money scam. Where does your kid play now?

I second the reply about 91 2024 Crossfire. I saw the coach already posted but did not attach it to your original reply so you may need to scroll down to find it. This past summer my daughters club team played played the crossfire team and lost after the coach clearly told her players to stop scoring. The parents on the sideline said it was her first game with them which was alarming to me in the best of ways. She spent the entire game coaching with no play off. My daughter came off the field and asked me if she could try out because the coach gave every kid who came off the field feedback. Unfortunately my daughter did not make the team after going to a tryout. The coach did not simply post numbers of kids who made it but rather reached out to us, and I assume every other family, individually. Coach Sam sent us a drill list that paralleled her feedback for my daughter. When I tell you I was taken away by her professionalism and care for my daughter.... My daughter has played another fall with her club team which as the other reply mentioned has four teams for the 2024 grad year. We are just as upset to have not made the team as we were this August, but she plans to try again this summer.

I'd also look into some of those teams labeled as "elite." They often have way over two lines for positions and will make as many teams as they can collect a check for. These teams will bench weaker players, so if your kid isn't the best on one of those teams she won't really get any looks.

love positivity on this site for once but I’m sure it won’t last long with keyboard warriors on the loose
