You cannot be (naturally) slow and small and uncoordinated and make it sorry

Have to be outstanding in at least two and at worst average in third: size/strength, speed/agility, coordination/skill

Itís the same in most sports

You teach top players - why you argue with this?

Speed/agility/ coordination can be taught and are learned skills. Nobody is born knowing how to walk let alone run/skate.   Plenty of top lacrosse players are smaller than 5í10.  Best attack and Defenseman on my brothers D1 team were both 5í7, the attack was maybe 140lbs.   Iíve been a professional in 2 different sports and am 5í7.

Yes I do teach top players and genetics have very little to do with their success.  Youíre trying to make excuses why kids fail and your doing so before they even have a chance.

There are innate aptitudes for everything

Just because you can become proficient at something through hard work doesnít mean you can become really great

The best athletes have great genes and work really hard too

How can someone with less natural ability compete with someone who was ďborn with itĒ and busts butte

This is not controversial

Except that the things you claim people are born with arenít genetic. They are learned.  

Running fast and big size are not learned

Even strength has limitations

Running reasonably fast is learned.  And again big size isnít necessary.  The average collegiate lacrosse player is 5í11 and 185lbs.  UNCís top scorer in school history is 5í5.  One of Villanovaís top players  in last decade was 5í4 and 140lbs.  Itís obvious you donít understand the game at all.  Again my brother was a top lacrosse player in the state of FL and was 5í9 and 175lbs in high school.  And heís actually quite slow running. He understands the game and is almost always in the right place at the right time and won 88% of his face offs his senior season.  He learned to be skillful but is not a great athlete.

Show of hands.  

Lets say your junior was smart and an absolute phenom in golf?  How many of you would send them to an Ivy league school? Harvard, Yale, etc....   Note that Stanford isn't Ivy League.

I would not.  Not to get political, but Ivy League schools tend to indoctrinate kids into beliefs that I don’t agree with.

As an Ivy League alum, never saw any of this, both at the university I went to and among friends I had at the others.
