"Parents of young athletes…Athletes improve through quality instruction and repetitions in both training and games. If you chose to pay for your athlete to play on a team that focuses more on games than training they have limited improvement opportunities. And if they are on a team where games are the only opportunity and they aren’t playing, it makes no sense. You are not paying for tournaments, you are paying for the opportunity to improve performance. Find a program that places as much emphasis on training as playing."
