West Islip is in a different division than Mt Sinai and SWR. Just goes to show how educated and ill-informed you truly are!!


Not a Mt Sinai guy, but they dominated all of DII last season regardless of conference. Closest game was w HF and MS won by 3, I believe. WI would dominate the D conf, nothing more. You WI people will learn that to dominate all of DII is rare. Game after game is a battle. Not what your used to in DI. Have some humility, it’ll save you in the long run. You’re obviously in for a surprise.







WI is in for a rude awakening Will have 4 losses Swr Sinai,Wogue HF

That's not true this year as for several reasons many schools are taking small classes this year. BC, UNC, PSU for instance are all done with very small classes.



BC is taking 11-12 kids one of the biggest numbers other than 2019, in 2018 they took 6 and it was the IL number 1 recruiting class, now thats a small class


BC is not taking 11-12 kids


Unless you are the BC Coach how do you know how many 2021 recruits BC will have? They brought in "11" in 2019, "7" in 2018, "7" in 2017, "6" in 2016 only time will tel how many they bring in in 2021.


Because my daughter is committed there and they have said what size class they are taking and they are done unless someone pops up. They brought in a bunch of transfers this year.


Yeah, "unless someone pops up" exactly the point, they are not done. If the right player comes along they will take them. As for the transfers, they did not bring in a bunch, they brought in 3 and they really have nothing to do with the 2021 class.

UA games are all inclusive (anyone can try out) versus exclusive. Many have complained about the selection process surrounding the UA games but at least everyone can try out. Clearly the NLF member organizations are trying to "flex" their muscle to the exclusion of everyone outside of the "club". The market always clears. What happens if all of the NLF's top players go play UA and pass on the NLF National Tryouts? Will they kick them off of the club. If the numbers are large, I'm guessing the clubs relent and let the kids stay. Wouldn't it be funny if the players/parents advocated for themselves (see the PLL) and put together a nationwide circuit of elite squads with open tryouts at half the cost of the NLF clubs?


Curious if any Crabs or Madlax parents would share how this has been communicated to them. The baltimore tryouts and actual event on same days kids will need to pick one. This is a Ryan M production. Obviously a way for him to control process. He did not let the 23s attend UA tryouts last year

That is not going to happen. At best 1-2 girls from each top teams will play in UA. So you going to give up a great recruiting tournament for max of 2 players per team? By the way UA isn't the ticket to playing at top schools. Many top tier players never play on the UA teams.



I am going to agree that you don’t need to make UA to be considered a great player.
However check out the roster for Long Island in 2014, or 15 and You will see household names of girls who have gone on to become college AA’s. So no you don’t need to make UA but if your daughter does, history has shown us it goes a long way and many have followed through with great careers.
Just making it to the callback game is tough and a good accomplishment

Contrary to your point which I happen to agree with the YJ have dropped out Nike G8
I guess they think they will have a few more than 2 on the UA team.

No skin in this argument at all, Nassau C-1 parent. The person posting this stupidity regarding WI is more then likely not a WI parent, just my opinion.

The coach went undefeated in High School for 7 seasons. He is now in Fla doing the same thing he did in Maryland.


I understand your point. But that’s not this guy. Believe me


dense parallel, that guys was a well established and seasoned basketball coach before he made the switch, not just a Daddy.

With that lay off Team Dad. He's a really nice guy and spends a ton of his own time organizing stuff that no one wants to deal with while expecting nothing in return.


Never said he wasn’t a nice guy. He has no business being on the sideline coaching.


You should be happy that he's there, the Majet team would be in shambles without him. I don't think he'd be so hands on if he didn't have to be, but CR will fix that eventually. Sad when selflessness gets you ripped online.


Not the original poster but here’s my take

Team dad is a nice guy who does a lot. I would agree he probably shouldn’t be coaching.

Majet is a terrible coach. She has no idea how to relate to 4th grade girls. And she certainly has no interest in making every girl on her team a better lacrosse player. What’s funny is that for such a “tough” coach she can’t even address the parents on the team. She makes team dad do it.


The plan was for Kolb to run that team which would have been a great situation for all, but it just wasn't meant to be and didn't work out for a number of reasons. The current leadership situation is untenable and will be addressed by the organization at some point. It's just not worth getting too worked up about right now where they are only in fourth grade.

Not entirely true. While it is true that there are somewhere between 15 and 20 Teams that always seem to be in the top 20 there are many good players at the non traditional top 20 programs. The biggest difference is that in "most cases" the non traditional top 20 teams do not get the studs. The top 3 or 4 recruits at Maryland, North Carolina, Northwestern etc... are what sets those teams apart from the rest of the programs. The starters at places like Ohio State, Michigan, Umass, Brown etc... could certainly be on the roster a Maryland or Virginia they just might not be the starter. The top 10 - 15 players at programs that are usually in the top 30 - 50 range could play anywhere (not start anywhere but they could certainly be on the roster).


Those teams outside the top 20 aren't complete teams....Its like watching summer travel all over again. " Get the ball to sally and get out of the way" The supporting cast is lacking and the bottom of those teams rosters are just walk on fillers. For those new to this go watch local D1 teams ranked in the 100's - U mass Lowell, Iona, Central Ct, Hartford you will come away with a smile on your face saying OMG, my very average kid can absolutely play D1!!! There is place for them all because there just isn't enough girls

I am not an expert in grammar but pretty sure "Just goes to show how educated and ill-informed you truly are!" is not correct. Either the person is educated or they are ill-informed... ; - )
