Should these events be free of charge? UA 150 is a good event that tries to bring in the best players possible. There will always be parents who complain about "parent coaches, connections, politics etc..." many of these parents can not accurately assess how their daughter stacks up vs other players. No one event is the end all be all there are many opportunities for college coaches to watch the kids play. If a college coach watches a player compete and believes that the player can help the coaches program the coach will recruit the player.
