: : : My guess is your kid isn't talented enough to earn what mine did and that's why you need to balance the field with participation points.
: I don't even have a daughter who plays, so no dog in this race.
: I don't encourage "participation trophies".
: My point has always been - the BEST players deserve the awards.
: Teams should not get players on the list just because they go an extra round in the playoffs.
: The lists, as selected, at least for Open and 1AA, do not reflect this.
: This list is strictly based on CIF-SS playoffs performance. So if your daughter's team didn't make the cut or was taken out early then she won't qualify.
Coaches from SS divisions get to nominate 2 from his/her team and 10 from other teams within their division.
It is what it is. It basically recognized players who performed well during the CIF rounds. Don't try to make it into something it's not.
And no, not only Open teams should get recognized. They may have more quality club players but to say there aren't top players in Div 1 to Div 4 is just foolish. There are plenty of girls in those divisions that choose those schools for academic reason, friends attending in those schools and other personal preference they might have.
You know this if you do club ball. Where you see their true game when they are playing against each other.
