Sounds like someone is upset about getting fleeced here.
let me guess..... your kid got 'invited' after the third round of invites were sent out. after stroking that $400 check, you started puffing your chest out at the water cooler at work.....you showed up for the first skate, and low and behold, there was a third liner from your son's public hs team in the registration line 3 spots in front of you.
My chest is always puffed out, You could be right though, I should have known$400 was a bit much for an invite only showcase for my son that would supposedly provide 1 stop shop for the college/pro scouts in the stands. I guess if it was a real showcase, the deep pocketed college/pro teams would fund these showcases and invite the truly elite players, free invites in which families would break long distance vacation plans over.
Are the 07/06's on D1 watch lists as well?
It's kind of like in the business world where you don't pay recruiters to find you a job.
06/07 age group is highly sought after by the colleges at this time. It's very easy to predict how 11/12/13 yr olds will be in 7/8/9 years from now. Everybody knows that.
Most importantly, that $400 was well spent. College letters with full boats will be arriving in the mail shortly.
Just ask the scouts.
In our showcase wrap up we focus on the Futures Division:
Nationals- Team was great from top to bottom. Many D1 athletes in that group.
Titans- Solid group of players with some surprise players outshining the usual suspects. Not sure about D1 but D3 potential without a doubt.
Hombres- Group did not play their best here
Braves- Hard working group but need more
Gate fee is absurd at an event like this. Sunday’s lunch was very good. Kids said coaches didn’t speak and when they did it was not about the game, fix that.
Was there Monday night for my daughter's HS summer league championship. checked out a couple of the beantown games, the committed game was very good fast hockey. The Pro level game was not that good, Public HS without checking.
04 age group by far was most talented. The 04 ‘s were in many cases the top players on their respective teams. I MO
Said the 04 dad....
Ya need to go back and watch the tape again, this time pay attention
Have to agree, 03's dominated and my son is an 04 who played in that. Watched Nationals and Titans play against each other and my sons teams, those 03's from both teams were much faster and smarter than the 04's.
