Too much pressure on a young kid and possibly on the family. Just because a guy like Macci can make outrageous claims about a 4, 6 or 9 year old being the next future pro star to bilk their family out of $300-$400 per hour doesn't make it right. But that's just my opinion.
By a coach building up some kid, it puts pressure (guilt) on some parents not to deprive their child of being the next one......
And yes, the per hour rate is just downright greedy.
