: : : I just have a question for everyone involved.

: : : Parents, coaches, friends, directors, scouts look at this here and think about it.

: : : The MAP has eight courts, they charge a tournament director lets say $7000 for the weekend (low number), then they charge $12.00 for parking. You can get a drink for $2.95.

: : : So I was there this weekend, why is it that court 8 with Varsity games having clock issues, court 3 clock doesn't work, bathrooms stank to living hell and only one TV to watch NFL game (being funny).

: : : With all this $$$ they make weekend after weekend are they not putting maintenance into the gym. Also more fans should be added, padding's on the end of the bleachers so if a kid falls into them.

: : : I stay away from ASC because of most of these reasons, now THE MAP have went up.

: : : Also they have contacted the City as the weekend there is no parking on the street Western, saying there is construction when there is not.Drive along the street today, see no cones. But Friday night they will be put back out.

: : : I don't even pay $10 when I go to staples center where I park.

: : : Whats your take on this?

: : : $7000 is the minimum you might get but usually they want no less than $8K. It's a joke. Why can't everyone be reasonable. Parking should be $5 a day. No in and outs. Admission should be $8 and the courts should be maintained. I hear the tournaments are going up to $12 for admission. What the hell! It's BS.

: Tell your coaches that you refuse to play there. It's actually really simple.
: hint: Isn't it odd that Zaire Williams is sick for all Jack Pollon stuff. Some people have values and stick to it.

Agreed we've told our coaches to avoid some of these places if at all possible. We will have the kids carpool, one of the parents has a van, on the occasions they have to play at MAP or ASC.
On the rare occasions I go into the MAP these days I'm also noticing less parents paying the admission/parking fees to get in there. Too expensive, disgusting dirty bathrooms, no AC, overpriced junk's just bad news. These places will put themselves out of business with their greediness.
