The whole point of this line of questioning is whether or not SPOL can put a player into D1, and from your post the answer is a resounding no!
Any d1 player, in any club, will move to higher levels if the quality of the remainder of players on their team donít help them acheive their goals.
Some clubs are happy to have developed that player and wish them the best.
Sounds like your club is not one of those...shame

High level squads will attract players from every club and that is how it should work. They should be called regional. Very few clubs here have the talent to grow a team from u10 up to d1 players. Itís good luck to coaches who have the opportunity to coach these kids.

And what drives your anger for SPOL?
Did you work or play for Hamlets or Fortis?

This isn't about anger. The question was put forth, whether or not this club could garner D1 scholarships. The question was answered. Once again, I will call you a fool if you think clubs like saying goodbye to players...even if they are moving up. It's simply not true. It costs them money and prestige. They do not want these players to leave and they have no choice but to fake happiness about it. I know regional coaches who are pissed when kids move to the state teams and that's within the same club.

Are you calling SPOL a "starter club"? Why don't you walk into BG's office and tell him that. Report back. Be interested to see what he says.

While rare, we were told that we had advanced beyond what they could offer us. So, we were welcome to stay, but to further her progress she needed to be in a higher league than they could offer at that time and in that age group (other groups happened to be OK).

I credit the club for a) Taking her that far; and b) Not trying to hold her in jail.

No, the club was not SPOL and I would say most of the TS-Slammers would be surprised which club it was.

I have had the same thing said to me about my kid. It was also, not SPOL. I will say that when we sat down and had the discussion, the club director flat out told us that he hated that we were moving on, but that he could no longer offer what was needed.
