Smart people look at the product coaches have produced over the years. The dont look at current game scores that much.

how many players has each of the coaches/ clubs produced in the last 5 years that are performing at or better than expectations at the College level? base your decisions off that, not what todays score are ot how good the other Clubs are.

Newsflash, its alwys been lopsided in terms of game scores. That is more a function of parents chasing wins than anything else. the best player on Club A goes to Club B to be the 8th best player and win more games today. The though process is more exposure and better practices! Most of the time its just an excuse to win more with less responsibility.

to succeed in finding the right Club, you need honesty (what are my childs REAL aspirations), humility, lots of luck ( are you located close to a good Club with a good coach and facilities) and focus ( ignore the shorter term stuff IF you have longer term aspirations)

its not easy. lots of BS and lies out there and most Clubs have no incentive to tell you the truth.

Right now with potential rule changes, I see so many young kids <15 rushing to commit. I dont see Clubs being honest. I see Clubs publishing lists of Commits of young kids like some validation of what they are doing. Perspective has been really lost. Parents need to get it back instead of buying into this madness.

Elite is one of the most overused terms in youth sports. If you can write a check your kid can be elite. There's far too much dilution of talent with too many leagues, which requires too many clubs chasing the same top talent. The rest of the rosters get filled with whoever can write a check. It's part of the "trophy for all" mentality in this country.
