No ref is perfect; nor is any player or parent.

I do see less obvious errors and there is more structure. One ref I spoke to said reffing a DA showcase is the highlight of their season and are honored to make it. They get the honor based on their grades during the DA seasons.

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.
I agree with this completely.

Sounds like your son wasn't the type of player that should be targeted for that environment. Again, as you said, some love it and some don't. It's not for all. But, based on his experiences it looks like he was picked for his $$$, not on abilities. HS is the right place there.

Shame on clubs in these instances.
