BL/Freedom/Mesa all are better. Should be interesting this summer rumor is Mesa has several 22's from Haverford that are now 23's.
Mesa, Freedom and BL are your AA's. Hard to rank them as Mesa has changed a bit (reclasses and kids from other programs), Freedom seems to always have a kid or 2 just show up and BL has the historical advantage but I think they no longer have the athletic edge they once had. I don't include BL Academy and Dukes Nationals in this list because they are essentially most of the kids on these AA teams.
HHH, Team 11, Dukes Young Guns are your A's and are all pretty even
Then its all B+ and below.
Put NXT and Sons maybe at the top of this list?
Mesa and HHH are both having spring play days on the same day?
Season just started and we already have candidates for ball hog of the month and coach who has hideous sportsmanship for allowing it to happen. WHB superstar puts up 10 points in a 17-1 blowout. Cant wait for WB to shut that team out again. The kid wants to be considered as good as the florida player but never will for one simple reason ; she is just not that good.
There's two dozen kids, if not more, as good as the florida player, lighting it up in the florida hs circuit and playing in "B" bracket club ball will be over soon
Maybe but the WHB kid aint one of them .
Go on inside lacrosse website and look at the scores of the games the kid in florida is playing - 17-3, 17-8, 21-0, 16-3, 21-0, 22-3, 20-10 and in the only competitive game they played they lost 18-9 - this would be what I think you're referring to as stat padding - American Heritage should be ashamed of themselves as well
Thank you for your response. Yes she is trying out for a more competitive club. She plays defense. How long are the tryouts usually and what drills or skills evaluation are they looking at? What does the schedule of a tryout usually look like?
Some clubs have multiple tryouts, some with callbacks. They will usually run basic skill drills, perhaps then separate positions and run some offensive/defensive drills and perhaps run half field game situations. As I stated earlier, it will be pretty clear if you are in the right place once the drills start and you can compare the talent level. I think that the most important thing is to be realistic with your expectations. If you daughter is well suited to the team that she is trying out for, then great, but if it seems as though she is not close to the same caliber as the other girls, perhaps another club would be better. The travel schedule can be time consuming and expensive, you do not want to end up travelling all over the place in the summer if your daughter will get little or no playing time. Also, you are not married to the club forever, your daughter is young, you have plenty of time to feel things out.
Wow, you must be a Tazzie who’s “ little Johnny” did not play as well as you thought he should have!! Maybe “little Johnny” is just not that good!!! Great game, can’t wait to watch what happened with both teams thi year!!
Can we make a rule that we can't refer to bad/underutilized players as "Little Johnnie"? My son's name is Johnnie and he's quite little. Your words are hurtful. From now on, let's use "Little Billy", or maybe "Little Jebediah", cool? Great. Thanks.
