True! 7th grade isn’t a factor. However in order to get better you need to be able to compete against strong teams and players. Some people are Ok with playing Fresh/Soph when they start High School. These are the kids who are in it for fun and that is fine for some kids. There very competitive players who want to compete against better teams. Those are your JV and Varsity players. Don’t kid yourself that playing for fun will lead your son to a competetive High School team where he will play. That is not the mentality. It should be fun always but you have to want the competition. It is not something that is a learned trait. You either have it or you don’t. There should not be any judgment either way!
Wow, it must really kill you Mr. Madlax or CM that Madlax is the third best team based in Northern Virginia at this age. While you are losing kids Cav's picked up two great players from another team this winter. Cav's played top competition and while our boys may not be up to par with the top Elite teams, how does playing games within 5 goals of NL not help them get better? They may not win but the kids are getting better and v. top teams. As time goes on they will also win. Great programs attract players and Cav's are the place to be in NOVA right now.
