My son is looking to tryout for 2020 but we have heard that it's very hard to get on if your not from St.Anthony's, any truth to this?

No truth. If he is good enough he'll make the team.

And the organizations parallel recognition that they can milk a half dozen more fees for each grade's teams? It's really not too hard to figure this out if you follow youth lacrosse, even casually.


Most parents do not understand the recruiting process. Your son needs to be seen actually playing on the field. Mine was recruited fall of sophomore year. He was on a solid travel team, not top two. Received far more interest from Coaches than the number 5,6,7 or 8th attack on those top teams. He was the "guy" the Coaches saw against good competition. It also allowed him to really gain confidence. Went on to be an All-star at Top Showcases. Never would have even been given the invite if on top two teams on LI. He would have multiple goal games in front of Coaches, received interest up and down the spectrum in D1. Had many options and chose a school that was best fit for him. Moral of the story is, better to be a starter on a slightly lesser Travel Team, than be buried on the bench with a top squad. If you pay attention, you'll notice only the top 10 kids get the plum offers. Same with the lesser team... Be realistic, if he's not good enough, or politically connected enough to crack the starting line up for one of the top two teams, he's probably not going to be seen by Duke or UNC. Starting and performing on the lesser team will get you looks and interest and calls from some pretty nice schools. But hey, if having your son on the top team is what it's all about, then stay there.


Which D3 school is your son going to?

If you look at the tournaments they are attending, I think this is the order from top to bottom. Not positive though.


Wieczorek - A
Leghart - B
Leggy - C

Moran/Wieczorek - Money grab BS team

You can put both Leghart and Leggy in the same category as Moran/Wiecorek.
And Wiecorek is now an A- team.

The LI Express North 2019 team should be proud! Won the LI Lax Fest JV division, beating RVC 2020/21 and West Islip 2020/21. The 4th playoff team was Sachem North 2020/21. You are rising 11th graders...next time play in the right division.

Did they cheat at every age group, or just a few of them?

How would you ever know? Lax should go to age-based, and players should have USA-issued photo ID that are checked like in football and soccer.

If they choose to add players outside of tryouts to improve their chances of winning, that is not cheating. I don't defend it because I think any adds disrupt playing time and I understand 100% how that upsets not only the players and parents, but opponents. But that is not cheating. You should only add unless it's needed to fill out a roster for kids who left, but that's my opinion.

However, if they choose to add players that are not of the correct age, that is, in fact, cheating.
