Do you think with financial incentives? Or just encouragement to come over? Interested to hear your viewpoint because I have my own set of answers.

Encouragement. Scholarships are only granted based on academic performance.

Agreed, that has also been my experience. Any rumors that they recruit with money are an urban myth. My direct personal experience is St A's and I usually see them working it at the summer camp, urging anyone they like the look of that's not already on the books, to come to the school, even as late as in HS age group. Fair enough.

Chaminade doesn't offer athletic scholarships either. Not sure about the rest.

There is alot of nuance answers being posted. Agree no athletic scholarships given.

However, academic scloarships given and tuition discount provided for those that may need it especially those who have been “encouraged” to apply. Not all get it.

The original question was about recruitung that is a resounding Yes. Answers morphed to include scholarships.

Correct "not all get it". For the catholic schools here on Long Island academic scholarships are based solely on merit and tuition assistance is based solely on need. A child's athletic ability is not a determining factor on whether or not they receive tuition assistance or an academic scholarship at the high school level. Anyone who says otherwise is either lying or misinformed.

Not OP but in response, I'd say Newfield doesn't need a 'best player'. They are well coached and play the most structured football of any HS team I have seen so far. Seen them three or four times now and have always been impressed, their style seems to allow them to play well with whoever they have on the roster. Coaches and parents a bit noisy but I'd say they are one of the teams to beat.

i agree they have a good team, but not well coached. The guy is clueless and shouldn’t be allowed to coach kids. He acts like a child on the sidelines screaming and complaining. I believe in kids playing HS soccer, but’s when guys like this are mentoring kids they are better off not playing.

Sadly, most of these HS coaches have no idea what they are doing and take their cues from lax and football coaches and figure if they scream and make the kids just run a lot, the results will follow. HS ball is great for every reason except development. I regard it the same way as if my kid were doing robotics.

So...... You saw him yell and then made this assessment? Ridiculous.

Maybe this guy saw more than just one game, either way you can't flat-out call him ridiculous without knowing more facts. Maybe he's right and guys like this shouldn't be mentoring kids. I know enough about the coaches at my kid's school, to know that if they did in the classroom what they did on the field, they'd be fired. Bullying, verbal abuse, hectoring, ethnic taunts, it's appalling. The team succeeds despite the coaches, not because of them and their puffed-up bantam-strutting. Heaven help if you pass backwards, even worse, to the middle in your own half...'get it up the field to the forwards, stop passing the ball to each other' - it would be comical if it weren't so insulting to a bunch of decent players who play on good clubs but all want to play together in HS. 'And stop talking to each other on the field'. Yup, that's a common one. For some reason it's OK to scream in the face of a young man so badly that they are hit with your saliva and not expect a comeback? C'mon, it's High School, not the army. So that's my experience but maybe that makes me a namby pamby liberal. What's the general consensus, are we OK with this kind of behavior, or is it time to move beyond the 1950s?

How many times to you need to see someone disrespect officials and tell and curse at kids to know they are not good for youth sports? what is ridiculous is that you are ok with a adult bullying kids, and screaming and cursing out officials at a school sporting event.
