I believe the NEPSHL independents, Exeter for example, will go well beyond need to get a stud. But of course with a school like that the kid better be really bright in the class room. They ain't letting in any dummies or "marginal" kids. And also, to get great money you better be a varsity level kid in another sport.
What a week. I have received at least 20 calls from parents of 03 up to 00 where kids were accepted but no FA available and put on a waitlist. I have been doing this for a long time and don't remember a year like this.
The 03 group at least can play a year or 2 of U16 or go to a Catholic to prepare, but the older kids are at a loss, and they are good solid players.
Tough week for a lot of dreamers.
1. Sorry your oldest kid got cut from prep school
2. Sorry your bank account got cut from financial aid
3. Sorry your youngest will get cut from their club team
