I ran a poll on Twitter last week. I asked my followers what is their Ultimate goal for playing lacrosse..
Under Armour All American
Winning a NCAA championship
Playing Pro Lacrosse
Representing your country in World Games
My point of doing the poll was to see why parents put so much pressure on their kids during the summer and fall — and in some cases year round- as if one day their kids will play pro lacrosse.
But results show the goal is to win a NCAA championship which only the top 5 schools ideally have a shot at doing.
So why the pressure?
