I bet a lot of them will be. Kids need a break - both physically and mentally. I'd rather raise a well-rounded, average level lacrosse player than a superstar who missed out on playing other sports, participating in school activities, not being able to hang out with their friends, etc. because lax was the be all, end all. Remember, only a tiny fraction of HS players play in college and even less go pro - none on the girls side. Make sure they're playing because they want to, not because somebody else thinks they need to. I want my kids to look back on their childhood with no regrets.
