assuming the kid wasn't an academic or behavioral liability.
Well, you know how Canadians are. 😆
i resent that.
the canadians on our team are the highest standing academically.
i agree with utfootball tho, it took me a full year to match the intensity needed with higher competition. i wasnt used to getting beat by over half a meter and not having a chance to win each and every meet. also i agree that huge competition is not needed and it will hurt your performance and improvements.
when u go to a meet and and your only getting 3 jumps instead of 6, you're at the wrong meet. id rather go to a smaller meet where i can chase the 7.40 guy who are a dime a dozen in the states.
the reason to go south for me, was to have better training partners, better coaching, and most importantly a cheaper and better education. no scholarships in canada.
