More specifically- I am inquiring about the debae between -"Save your money and play on a club that doesn't cost thousands" and "get on the best club that showcases"
I have read both sides- and still torn
As far as club, get on a team that plays in good tournaments and your son has friends there that play. It is all about the coach, getting better as a player, and playing against the correct level of competition. It would be tough to break into a AA team at this point, so I would go local. My son is on a great "A" team and is getting lots of invites from Colleges to come to their prospect days. That is where you will get an offer.
