You're experiencing the two worst forms of the sport at the same time: the over-competitive youth league, and the mercenary elite pro league. Neither is a representation of what the sport is supposed to be about -- and this also applies to soccer, basketball, football, etc.

I suggest taking in some high-level amateur or low-level pro games. Guys who are beyond the "helicopter parent" phase of life but are still fighting just to live the dream.
