Good god, I remember living through this years ago. Many of the kids flamed-out and never made it past high school and the kids who ended-up being the best defensemen were too small at the time to even get invited. It's fun, but it's pretty meaningless.
^^^ 100%. It's nice if your kid get recognized, but it really is a couple of years too early. Many names will change by the time they are 18, many more by 20.
