the problem is the politics. if your kid is not on the top teams, DA, etc, they don't get to top colleges. a kid doesn't even get looked at on a normal club team. too many freaking classifications and leagues, that you kids are always trying to get on the best of.
odp, regional teams, DA, Ecnl, etc.
in my day if you didn't play odp, coaches didn't even talk to you. mean while the odp teams were bascially put together when kids were freaking 11 years old.
