Only reason they did it was to keep in shape for HS season. All of the coaches drama, team changes, taking more and more players one, going to "showcases" adn getting 10-15 min per half, traveling the east coast (did it with one, not with the other) and paying through the nose for what? for what? I just wish it didn't get so complicated in club, I think thats why they enjoyed school so much more. Just my experience. I know some of you really LOVE your club experience, well good for you! it just wasn't good for us.
One of mine was taken out of an entire club season due to an injury. He realized he didn't miss it that much and decided not to return. He had been on the fence about playing in college anyway. He plays on a great club team in college plus an adult league, refs for some pocket change and coaches ulittles. Still loves the game and it's still very much a part of his life.

I think it depends upon the kid

Thatís perfect for your child and for others who feel the same way

The players Thst want to play in college are different

You lose a year of development by plsying hs

For the most part itís low level training and compete and refereeing.

Itís a great social hs experience

You have to choose what the best fit for your child is

Of course it depends on the kid...but there's also the reality that there's only so many college spots out there. A lot of kids come to the realization during HS that while they'd like to play in college, it just isn't going to happen. Or, their dreams of playing high level D1 are met with the reality that they're a mid level D3 player. Finally, as kids start to really get recruited many realize they don't want the commitment of D1 but prefer D3 (still a commitment but less). Yet they're expected at 14 years old to know all of that and give up HS without even experiencing it.

No they are not. If your 14 year old wants to play HS , they should. If they don't know what they want to study or where they want to go to college that is normal. There
may be a small number of 14 year olds that may have made these mature decisions but that is atypical. Most kids at 14 do not yet have the maturity or life experience to make such a decision and that is fine. Not every 14 year old is ready to make a 17 year old decision.

You have to see what level your school district is playing at...if you are in Brentwood or St Anthonys district for example....PLAY HS!!!!!!!! if maybe you live in Miller Place...forget it.

Very difficult question. For us, our town team and therefore likely our HS team will be awful. Whether or not my D plays HS still should be her decision. I think all leagues should adhere to the same timing (within a geographical area) and not have the HS/No HS question be a deciding factor. Personally, I would rather she not bother with HS but I wouldn't tell her that. If she wants to do it that is fine. If she says it sucks and her club offers training and scrimmaging for those few months, that would be great. I will say that club is fun but as time goes on the politics, money and bullsh-t becomes hard to take.
