Seems like there are a number of clubs suddenly holding mini-tryouts to back fill or fill out rosters for the coming Spring + Summer seasons. What's going on? never seen anything like it...

Possibly parents who don’t feel comfortable playing sports yet? Would be interested to know which clubs, as I have not heard anything from the top clubs about this.

It’s called a “merit” scholarship, you know when kids work harder than some and deserve a reward for their ability. We have a daughter that went through a private school in the IAAM. We would have never been able to afford it without said financial assistance. There is nothing “sad” about it. What is sad is the narcissistic mentality of most of the parents on this site.

So basically these prep schools go around and recruit the best players in the state and entice them with money. Then the parents boast about the great talent and winning programs. If some D1 colleges could "recruit" but not others that would be unfair huh. Too bad the kids would not attend because the academics were superior not for lax.

They go around to clubs in the late summer of 7th grade(?). That way your D will be able to attend open houses that fall and sit down for the test that fall. Then once you get in you have to lay out your whole financial history and situation, even the ages of the cars you drive and they figure out how much Merit aid you get year to year. If you stay home with kids they base it on what you could make at minimum wage. This may sound awful but if your just a basic white family you won’t get much maybe 10-15%. They will give POC more aid.

Some schools even have alumnae-peers (yes the moms you have coffee with) in the financial office looking at your whole financial fitness blueprint plus tax returns. Talk about tacky.

Yes, most schools follow that criteria. But one school in particular went from the B bracket to the A bracket in lax and went outside of the norm
to get more expensive talent.

Wow -my D did it the old fashion way at Public school. Played for a top 10 team as a starter and is now in grad school/doctorate program. I had no idea this stuff even happens. Now I have less respect for the coaching.

Nobody going from B to A will have much success climbing to the upper ranks. Gerstell , Garrison , MDS will always be at bottom. But they will get to be on same field with the good teams and say they got better playing them. Mostly they will be playing the back ups and the 3rds.
