Interest means nothing. Good luck!

Are you sharing this because you have a daughter who was burned. You went to all the prospects camps and coach was nice to her? You thought she would get all these offers but didn’t? The girls who will be getting offers already know!

Congratulations to all who participated in the Under Armour Senior All-America game . It is truly a shame that the powers that be started a competing event for the underclass players. I realize that there have been complaints about the selection process for the UA Underclass games but overall the event (underclass tournament & Senior games) has been great for the sport.

Not for nothing long island won the championship at UA. Dave did something right. All I hear is sour grapes over the one girl going to Duke who didn't make it. Get over it. Maybe she had a so so tryout and other girls played better that day it happens. So that tells me politics wasn't in it as much as everyone is making it out to be. Sorry folks I know alot of people don't like dave but he has a good heart and not out to hurt anyone. He is a very good coach. All these year Carol rose took her almost entire team so give me a break. Guess what Dave coached a championship team so kudos to him. I guess he picked the right girls!

How would you know if he did a good job or a bad job? You weren’t there. You saw 1 game on TV where LI admittedly sat about 6 girls and played only their all stars. They eeked out a 2 goal win over a team they beat by 7 the day before ( in which every one played)
Sounds like the philly team adjusted not the LI team.
By the way LI has either played in or won the championship in The HL division 4 of last 5 years, so not much of a stretch to make it to the final game. The real shock was that Baltimore wasn’t there and didn’t get past philly..

Is it just me but is the same girls on all these teams. I know it's about exposure. Maybe the time has come to limit the number of appearances each girl can make to allow for some diversity, Before you all start with the participation trophies comments can we have a real discussion.

That’s exactly why you don’t have to do these events.

Nope! Not the place. Where was the real comp. at? LI did not even have to play the top competition. Barely eeeked a win against Philly! Grizzlies would have chewed that LI team up and spit them out!!

I’m sure his Elevate Team has plenty of open spots from girls who probably bolted due to lack of coaching for their teams. You don’t have to wait until next year. You can go there and play. Hit him up, sure he would give your daughter a tryout. Good luck !

It’s the best kids in the class of the kids that are willing
To pay, it’s kind of like comparing the nysr to the
Old empire games. Back in the day the empire games
Were invite tryouts that were set up by high school
Coaches with no financial stake. It was all expenses
Paid. Stayed in dorms at Syracuse. Coach bus from
Long Island all free. The best kids made it regardless
Of ability to pay. Things are different now.

“Limit number of appearances”? That’s not how it works. Who? Would limit it? There are obviously some girls who train and work harder than others. Do you limit the amount of medals you can win in an Olympics? No!!! You train hard and you can win as many medals as races you can win. That’s the way competition works. Now, opportunity/exposure is another topic. But, definitely limit is not the answer. There will always be a few athletes who stand out and are at everything. Prob. Means they worked/work hard to be doing the top events.

The scary thing is, it’s not just you who has that insane mindset. “Limit the number of appearances”, “diversity”? Honestly, what is wrong with you?

You say that you would like to have a real discussion but it is obvious that you do not want to hear opinions from others if the opinions differ from yours, otherwise you would not say “before you all start with the participation trophies comments “.

Next you will be asking the best college programs to stop offering spots to the best players.

“Diversity” is the enemy of excellence!

I'll never get the parents of juniors and seniors obsessed with winning a championship or who beat whom. Is your daughter getting exposure to her target list of schools? Is she enjoying the game?

Some choose to tryout for UA and AS for opportunities for exposure to often a large population of coaches and should know politics will be involved. Open your eyes, jockeying for a better position I.e politics is just human nature and happens everywhere in life not just lax.

Find the right club for your daughter that fits her aspirations, challenges her, and affords her the opportunity to be seen. Successful college coaches don't care about your daughters team wins and loses they care about do they fill a need for their program, will she fit with the current team dynamics, can she meet academic standards. Do you really think they care about the score on the flip board? Successful programs are evaluating whether your daughter is a team player, continues to play at 100% when the game is clearly already decided and is she an impact player on the field.
