: Basketball, especially on the girls side, is in shambles. Year round playing creating injuries, delusional parents thinking their kid is Div 1 not understanding that kids with high level talent and fantastic grades are the only ones that make it to the next level, club coaches collecting checks and teaching the girls "hatchet hand checking man to man" and fast break basketball. Press teams non stop - chuck 3's and man handle weaker opponents because the refs refuse to call 50 fouls in a game.
: No one teaching mid range jumpers, post moves, ball handling to free up, using screens etc......embarassing US club basketball!!!!!!!

: : : : :

: : : : Not a single club team from CA is of interest right now. Horrendous showing over the summer. Unfortunately, this is the trend as these aren't really "teams" at all, just girls with so-called talent thrown together with poor coaching by people grabbing for money.

: : : : No thanks.

: : : :Listen to you, so bitter. Sorry that your daughter didn't make the top team, lol

: : To be truthful there really aren't any top teams. Hasn't been a TEAM of top players in some time. I blame the parents and these "top programs." Now all we're doing is looking at who can scratch for the best out of the ill developed and put one on two athletic players with them with one or two more skills then the rest.

Our team hasn't been a top team on the scoreboard yet we are annual champions in life journeys of students, according to them. People come on here ready to raise one team to the top. High school sports is about sportsmanship and participation. That's why 400,000 students in CIF Southern Section participate every year even though only a handful win a CIF Championship. Our players cry before they get on the bus at the last road game to come home because of the great experiences regardless of the scoreboard. They will not be judged if the team wins trophies and their life journeys are great. Don't come to our gym because we aren't a great team and we have people who try out as one said simple because "you all support each other so much while competing against each other to get better."
