Unregistered Depending on what you and your kid are looking for. Have him tryout or got to open practices, that should give you an idea where he or she stacks up. SB is a good starter travel club as they train bottom up. If you're looking for high level, look somewhere else.

We must have different definitions of "Easy".

Complain about the trainer or lack there of, the changing programs, lack of information from the coaches and/or the kickers themselves. They stated they never know when there is an extra program running like winter futsal until a week before it happens. Same thing with how they run camps...Hearing all this scared us off. We did hear Stonybrook was more expensive but heard they were more professional how they did it. We would like to commit and stick with a team, hate to be one of those playing on a different team each year.

If you are just starting travel I think that both programs would be a mistake as they concentrate on their high end teams. You are probably better off looking at teams from Ronkonkoma, Terryville, Hauppauge, VOB, Connetquot, Middle Country, etc where you can get your feet wet on decent teams at a fraction of the price while your son acclimates to travel and then move on to one of the big programs if you aren't happy after a year.
