These fees are grossly too high. Parents are suckers, plain and simple. Here is an area where not having a league kills the kids and the parents. This is Long Island, pretty much the epicenter of lacrosse. If there were leagues to play in there would be plenty pf parents who have played at the highest levels to coach and do it for free!!! A kid is paying $50 per session? Are you kidding me? A fool and his money shall part.
By the way, if you put $1,600 a year away from 6th grade to 12th with even no return you have about enough to cover a year of SUNY education or the equvalant of a 25% scholarship. That is something 90% of these kids will not achieve.
And I thought soccer parents were crazy?
