Bumping this up; totally agree with all the points here, and Iíll add/modify a couple: Play ODP. Iíll be the first to admit that not all the best players in the state play, but itís an opportunity to receive excellent coaching, play with other good players and get noticed. My sonís HS teams were not exceptional. His club (CESA) and ODP experience, in my opinion, got him noticed, and heís playing Division I soccer. If your son or daughter WANTS to play in college, there are teams & coaches that want them.
Go Blue!! Go Canes!!
