Coaches should take multiple kids leaving as a sign and try and figure out why. They don't because 90% of the time there is someone waiting to pay. Many of these clubs don't care about the kids they care anout their bottom line. This is why they put 30 kids on a roster (still baffles me why people pay for this). I wonder if coaches reach out when players leave to find out why. Sometime kids leave because they think the grass is greener or they want to be on a "name brand team. I would bet sometimes they leave because they don't like the way they are coaches or the dynamic if the team. If I owned an organization it would benefit me to have loyalty from my team. If I couldn't achieve that I would want to know why. Some of these organizations are just too self absorbed.


Many good points. Also, your kid must have the drive and desire to put the work in in order to get better. That said, this time of every year parents have leverage over the organization and coach. One very important point; what does the team do in the off-season. I know many organizations offer clinics at an additional price, but as a team is the coach conducting practices, readying the team for the upcoming spring?
Last week, I traveled out east for the turtles tryout; very impressed with leadership, organization of the tryout with many reps and level of competition wasn't bad at all. FL$ is holding their tryouts this week. Another class organization. So if you're looking, well worth considering. Unfortunately we read the same old complaints from the outlaws organization in this age group year after year. Nothing changes if nothing changes...



FL$ may be class act (I don't know from experience) but their 4k price tags is ridiculous. I would put Express, Igloo and the others that charge more than 3k in the same bucket.


I think your bucket is leaking, you're wrong about 4K, take a look at the web-site. (Suffolk team)


When they called me last year the fee was 4k

Is your grammar always this bad or only after too many sips from your red cup?


If you met the guy, you would understand the reason for his bad grammar.

Sorry. All I can picture is either a drunk, mentally disabled person, or someone who hasn't grasped the English language yet. White trash possibly?

Has anyone ever moved on from Outlaws 2023 A/B teams without any attached drama? Reminds me of the NY Knicks...

And yes the coaches kids play on the team
B goalie is the coaches kid ... almost always played the second half . I think that was by design . Kid had a tough year . Team had small leads or was behind at half a lot . Other B team coach plays D I think as for the A team ... I'm not sure where they play


Thanks Cocah. So you are saying the other goalie sucks and is the reason they had small leads or were behind? The coaches kid is the savior? My kid isn't a goalie but you can't pin a win or loss on the goalie alone. I was there last night and the coaches kid got lots of playing time which makes no sense since he is sure to get a spot on the team. In between his dad barked orders at him to bring him water. From what I saw there were 2 non Recon goalies there who faced maybe 3 or 4 legit shots. Not sure how you base talent on that. We may have missed out on an opportunity to pick up good talent at that position (which bith teams can use) because the coaches kid got so much time in the net.

The inability to use the "Quote" button this morning is rampant - must be a phenomenon like Sunday drivers!
