Yeah. Always nice to be invited though, huh? Same ole same ole. Going on 7 years now. The haters are the losers in life, always criticizing people for having what they think they deserve, but can’t have. Yeah I get it. Pure jealousy. But when adults do it to kids since they were 7 years old, that’s going to a whole different level. Congrats “white trash” Madlax parent.

They were not invited . It was set up . So they are all packing up and going !!! What they do best!!


Not familiar with the term “invite”? Let me give you some examples of sentences with the term “Invite” that you will surely help you to understand. “Invite” two 2023 DCDogs holdback players to play with the 2024 Madlax team of holdbacks. “Invite” 2023 players from the 2023 Madlax team to play in the NLF Amherst games. “Invite” 2023 DC Dog player to be a part of the regular 2024 Madlax holdback squad. Does that help?

The big FO midi that played for the 2033 DC Dogs until last year. Take that kid away, and Hawks coast to straight wins every game vs Madlax.

When was the last time they (Hawks) beat 91 MD? 3rd grade I think.


The conversation is about the Hawks and Madlax. Understand? Too complicated for you? Repeat: Hawks beat Madlax without their 2023 DC Dogs player. Got it now?


How many 2023’s does Madlax have? I heard as many as three.

So amazing how the 91 dads on here post stuff like "CSH roar ,I mean regulators clock probably struck midnight last season " , pathetic . You got beat by CSH roar , a town team . You are a sad , pathetic lost living through your kid and sucking the 91 directors balls . Go choke on the 91 kool aid while making excuses every time you lose a game . Typical 91 lost , the club of dense trash and sour grapes .

You can always find them in the penalty box. This isnt football, you want to run full speed from 10 yards away and blast a kid then go play football. Fastest game on two feet with skill and precision stick work. That's lacrosse. You MD guys think you can bully teams all the time


Couldnt take the rigors of football, no problem. Volleyball might be a good second sport for him.


Soccer players tend to use intelligence and have a higher sports IQ whereas football players are going to rely more on athleticism. It's not a tough debate. To each his own. Good teams will have a mix of both types of athletes.


Might be, Recently heard a D1 coach talk about recruiting along with some general lacrosse stuff. He said he gets lots of emails/videos and only reads the first paragraph and maybe watch first 20 seconds of video, His only exception was when he saw they played football in HS too. Then he read and watched much more.

Just curious, what part of the eligibility rules prevents re-classing in Philly, are they capped age-wise in high school like LI?


You can't be older than 19 on June 30th before the start of the academic year. So technically a true summer birthday who is a holdback but also reclassed is age eligible.

However, PIAA rules also say:
Your athletic eligibility extends only until you have reached the end of your fourth consecutive year (8th consecutive semester or the equivalent) beyond the eighth grade. Therefore, if you repeat a grade after eighth, you will be ineligible as a senior.

Additionally, you may participate in (1) a maximum of six seasons in each sport during grades seven through twelve, (2) a maximum of four seasons in each sport during grades nine through twelve, and (3) a maximum of three seasons in each sport during grades seven through nine.

You may participate in only one season in each sport during each school year.


Interesting, but I guess the question, assuming that the birthday part does not create an issue, is repeating a grade. The rule prevents a player from repeating after 8th grade (i.e. a high school grade), but does not seem to disqualify a player who repeats eighth grade or any prior grade, again assuming that the birthday is not an issue. As witnessed over and over, most kids just delay high school for a year by repeating 8th grade.


I think the game is to transition from public to private sometime before 9th grade and repeating whatever grade you finished. PIAA rules limit the number of years you can play, so you would need to sit out games for that second round of 8th grade.

Probably a combination but more so the coaching.

Here is a question... If the Lists, IL Player Rankings, UA All-Americans are always off and political then why are the teams that get the highest ranked players always the Top Teams and Top Programs?

Maryland, North Carolina, Northwestern, Syracuse, Florida, Notre Dame, Princeton, Virginia, Boston College, and a few others always seem to get the top ranked players and they always seem to finish in the Top 10 - 20. Where do all of these other teams who have all of the "just as deserving players" finish every year?

If the lists and rankings etc.. are alwaysl wrong, political and a joke wouldn't other programs constantly outperform the perennial top 10 -15 programs?

Congratulations to all of the Young Guns and Freshmen who were recognized by Inside lacrosse. Good Luck to All.

Well said. SUNY is fine but if lax can get you son into a great school that is well recognized, figure out a way to pay for it. There is more than one option to pay for college. Lax is a great sport but why pick your college on your chances of playing in a National Championship? That is a terrible idea. For every D1 starter, there is no less than 10 broken hearts by injury, riding the bench, too much work, mental attitude, etc. College sports is brutal, every recruited player was a star back home.....

Figure out a way? Sure, great, I’ll just figure out a way. Maybe bankrupt my family. Perhaps remortgage the house. Maybe the other two can skip college and do something else so the lacrosse guy can go D1. How silly.


Definitely not silly. Is there anything more important than your child's education? Other than their health, no, IMO. Where there is a will there is a way to pay for college. Should a child run up $100k in loans, of course not.

Personally, I think they should have some skin in the game. $10k loan per year may keep them honest and focused on their school work. After college they can live at home for a year and pay $40k off. Student should also have job at home and in college (athletes most likely have zero time for job at college) .

Rich people on LI can pay for D1, poor people can get a ton of financial aid for a hard working smart student. Middle class/upper middle on LI have it tough. Even there, lifestyle changes can help a lot.

Seems to me, most parents lease 2 cars, big vacations and eat out 3 times a week. Always trying to keep up with the Jones'. Is it that hard to scale back? What about a second job? That's how my father got us through college.

Everyone is in different situations but to say that sacrificing for a respected D1 college for your child is "silly", is plain ignorant.


What is silly is to simplify something into "find a way". For most normal middle-class families that doesn't exist without major sacrifices. if you have more than one child "just finding a way" may not be an option. What lifestyle change are you referring to? Skipping the weekly dinner out? Not buying the needed family car? Maybe the other kids should skip field hockey camp and lacrosse camp? Don't use phrases like finding a way without offering a specific, it's lame and silly.

Not that scary, they can’t even beat the LI teams anymore 🤔



LI winning will be a thing of the past. This is a new year and new team. Players not able to hang have been cut loose. Guess you will just have to see for yourself. Like I said. Scary Good.

Not all players.

I see many of the coaches "top tier prospects" at the camps and clinics. I thought those were the "top tier." im not sure i understand.


Correct. Some schools are having their top tier prospects come for a camp. Even when they get their lists cut down they may want to bring them in to play against each other to figure out the final group.
