    I am really curious about a couple of things. All of these kids just came back to school from almost a two week vacation for the holidays and now they are out of school and off for a week of soccer. Any parent in their right mind wouldn't let their kid be involved in this. Would like to hear some comments on this.

    Don't you think they probably talked with their teachers before the break and planned for this? It's a week of class for middle schoolers. Hardly a big deal. It is very possible that the instruction and interaction that they receive at the camp will be 100x more valuable in terms of their growth and maturation than that week of school would have been.

    I hear you Fanfor, but soccer and education aren't mutually exclusive and you need to weigh pros and cons. This is an incredible opportunity for these kids, which may not come around again, especially if they decline the invitation. Even though these kids are very elite, most still won't be going pro at 18, meaning this exposure could boost their chances of a college scholarship and do much more for their long term education than a week in their freshman high school classes.

    Oh great point, I remember my first week back in school after winter break during the freshman year of high school. I learned so much. Who knows where I'd be if I'd missed that time! LOL! Give me a break. These kids will be fine.
