I'm in highschool, senior year, I've been playing lacrosse for 3 seasons (freshman through junior year).... Lacrosse season is comming up quickly. Last year was the first year i had a vehicle (my stock 87 YJ), my parents helped me out with gas money here and there through the season, but other than that i had no money because i took the season off from work... It wasn't fun having no money, and only winning one game all season, and being worked in the hot sun everyday, and spending most of the time on the bench because the "suck-ups" play before me , but I'm with my friends and we some how make it fun to be their....
This year i have been offered a job as an electricians apprentice, which basicly doubles what I've been making at the bike shop and is helping me to get my electrical licensing. I'll basicly be a step ahead of everyone my age trying to get an electrical license (which is basicly no one I know of). I want to be an electrician and own my own company one day.
Im leaning more towards skipping lacrosse, and going out into the work field..... what do you think of my decision? what would you do in this situation?
Depends how much you like lacrosse. It's probably something that you will never be able to play again, so you need to take advantage of it while it's here. You have the whole rest of your life to work. I know I would have kicked myself for missing any football that I could possibly play!

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!
Just remember which decision you make and forget the other one. Regret is a hard life to lead.
I worked all through high school with my grandfather. He was a home builder and most nights after school I would work until 9-10. I don't regret the life lessons learned under my GPA(mentor) and even apply those teachings in my current profession 15 years later.
I would check up on the electrician offering you the apprentice. Find out what kind of work he does and what others have to say about him. Specifically his employers. Is it rude to go behind his back to ask about him? YES! Do you want to learn from someone that does stuff half-assed?
holy crap i wish i would have seen this sooner!!
lax huh? I have been playing all my life, my dad is the chairman for lacrosse in Arizona. Anyways, there are many lacrosse clubs out there that can work around a tough schedule if u had a job
i dont know how much u love lacrosse, but I would say TRY to stick with both, because u never know, u might regret it later. Just my advice, try some lax clubs
