Very true. At our local high school almost every kid plays some club level sport and focuses on usually one, sometimes two. This includes hockey, baseball, volleyball, soccer and a few more. The unfortunate thing is these kids become so focused and advanced with their professional coaching that the high school experience is sometimes a let down. For example a few years ago when BA was the place to play in the fall for Bantams & Midgets the parents fully believed they had maybe 2-3 teams that could have made the Super 8. And then some of the kids went back to their high school and the coaches are still forcing them to play 1970's style hockey and getting yelled at for not playing 'dump & chase' hockey.
I'm sure the other club sport players have many similar experiences.
Like That 70's Show everything happens in the basement.
