That is a good question.

What are the club fees for CSU?

How many tournaments does it include and how are the coach's travel expenses covered?

Here are a couple more questions.

What was the reasoning given for going to such an expensive tournament?

Are there any college prospects that might have benefitted from making the trip.

Back to giving oneself a pat on the back and responding to your own posts again.

Here's a guess....It was Florida. [You've done the Orange Bowl before, right?]. The families all agreed it would be nice to get away during the winter and play some soccer. Hardly any college coach contact resulted. We didn't care. We still had a blast. Spent roughly (probably less) the same amount of money we were planning to spend on a Holiday season trip anyway.

This betrays an incredible lack of respect for all of the families, many of them very well-educated and very aware of what they are doing and what their expectations are, and as much or more lack of respect for the vast majority who work very hard provided the service. And then to know that most of this is coming from the person who has engaged the "industry" to excesses most of us could not even fathom. The ugliness and duplicity needed to pull this off is mindboggling.
That trip is a example of what many see as a huge problem in club soccer. There was once a time when only the top one or two teams in the state would even consider making such a trip. It may not be part of an actual scam but discussing the rationale behind it should speak volumes about the mindset that over run club soccer and explain why costs have sky rocketed. How does a group of educated parents collectively make that decision? What did they see as the end game?

Seems someone at least got OCDman's club affiliation right. Explains a lot of the ugliness coming from that area.

btdt, as you've been told MANY times, not all of us live our lives with an "end game."

That said, didn't you go to the Orange Bowl with a team that wasn't the top 1 or team in the state??? Oh, that's right, you were pissed because you had to stay behind for basketball practice with a bunch of crap kids who didn't put out a good effort.

Exactly. A Crusaders parent who vigilantly defends Stars and Scorps from btdt. Makes sense.

How would any parent from another club know whether players on the team contacted college coaches or not?

OCDman's gay bashing is catching up with him.
