This is the second tournament from an organizer that frequently posts on this message forum (the other is Swish) that is advertising a tournament that will purportedly feature "High School" players during the regular high school season.
Hopefully everyone understands that when the high school "season of sport" is in effect, no high school teams are competing in any events other than officially sanctioned CIF events.
Some may say, "oh sure, but individual high school students who don't play for their high school teams can still play in events like this". Um, ok. But look again at the advertisement above: It's all priced for "teams" and not for individual players.
My take on this and similar ads by this organizer, and other similar such ads, is that this is flat out misrepresentation. There will be no high school "teams", no travel teams made up of high schoolers either, and this is just a flat out false advertisement.
I'm sure this might be a good event for middle school-aged and elementary school-aged club teams.
But it's not for "High Schools" and JW should just stop misrepresenting this event. There will be no high school teams. And there are no high school club teams either playing now, so they won't be there either.
