Sour Grapes

You sound like someone whose kid was cut from the team and you certainly don't know anything about how AAU basketball works. D1 schools, while limited, still recriut 365 days a year not just in July. D1 coaches attend High School games all the time. While you will certaily see hundreds of coaches out in July, each college has scouts that attend these events ahead of time, D1 through Junior Colleges. All of the top AAU teams nationwide are playing now and will continue to play throughout the summer. My advice would be that you should be realistic about how good your kid is and quit trying to blame others for his underachievements.

You really show you ignorance when you try to put down Big Shots. Having coached in every organization, YBOA, USSSA, USBA and AAU I can tell you that Big Shots offers more exposure for the kids than all the other organizations put together. Take a look at their website and their success speaks for itself.

As far as last years team goes, I can say that every senior on that team played college basketball somewhere this season. By the way, their point guard last year who was a junior just signed with UNC.

Winning a tournament at this level is a huge accomplishment but the ultimate goal is to help the kids play at the next level. Over the last 8 years Flight 22 helped more kids achieve their dreams of playing in college than any Hgh School coach or other travel team in this geographical area. Their record speaks for itself.
