: : : : 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.
: FYI, Champions Sports Facility in Carson, CA runs shootouts twice a month. $60.00 per team for 2 games, $7.00 entrance and FREE parking. All dates listed on our website www.championssportsfacility.com/shootouts
Interesting thread. I was at the Map this weekend as well. Just a matter of time until some of these entities. Cost is out of control on all aspects. The main thing we need to ask ourselves and being totally honest with ourselves.........is your son getting better under current coach/program? NO Trainers are not coaches. Some trainers are abusive as well. I coach and train. I moved my son to a program and this is his second season. After this, I am taking him back and we are forming our own team. If one can, best to train and coach your own. Only reason why I moved him to another program was for conditioning. Trainer is nice guy but I am not paying for nice guy. I am paying for you to be a better coach and teacher of the game. Cant find one so time to save big $$$
