…the May 8th episode that is. And as I’m sure you already know, you can listen to it right here:
A big thank you to St. Charles parent Rob Marshall for being the only parent to have the cohones to come into the studio and discuss how club sports, or “outside training facilities,” can dominate high school athletics.
The idea of an outside training facility catering to kids who have a real passion for their sport isn’t a bad idea.

Another tip of our hat to George for calling in and asking some excellent questions and to our travel baseball coach who relayed his similar experiences.
Next week, former South Elgin City Manager Larry Jones will co-host with 43rd District State Rep Jeff Meyer calling in.
But for now, enjoy today’s show!
