Wasn’t it like $700 to play?
Why risk injury or travel when the tournaments start in earnest next weekend?
Do they BC girls have any to prove?
Were there not any coaches in attendance?
Were any of the coaches employed as college coaches yet?
I don’t think the write ups were that great. Not too many girls were mentioned, and I was looking for names that never got a mention. I wonder how those kids feel? I think that is what this tourney was good for- a mention or tag.

First off, a Diploma is earned by graduating from high school and a Degree is awarded from institutions of higher learning, colleges or universities. The state vs. private colleges at Cornell are all highly regarded. The "which school" snobbery is far more prevalent amongst Cornellians than non Cornell educated people. There are an outsized number of Cornell grads in finance from the private side and the state side (where the business major actually resides). Go Big Red!

91
FCA
NextLevel
Top Caliber
TRW Wolfpack

Good list but need to add in True Annapolis Green. Highly doubt leading edge comes in but possible and don’t think Hoco has exclusions as long as they can play every Saturday. Early Spring tournaments will shake everything out. Don’t think TRW makes the jump, Top Caliber may come up but but would have to unseat a politically connected club like FCA or Next Level. They will not go to 12 teams but could go to 10.

PP here - I forgot about True - of course they belong on the list so actually there are 13 contenders.

Is the Leading Edge thing a joke? They are driving from NJ every week? That seems insane.

Forgot about S2S. They should probably be right above Express B.

We'll see this weekend.

Only teams that matter are Express, Tigers, Sweetlax, Towermen

Thanks arrogant Express dad!

Clubs mean very little and do very little to develop players. They are important in marketing players during the summer at events. Clubs are marketing machines not lacrosse academies. High schools develop kids. High school coaches develop players. 91 does a great job of marketing kids.

Well stated, one fall my son played on a club that had 4 practices and 15 games. That is not "developing players" lol. In too many fall ball games, the boys are either playing soft because they are up by 12, or playing deflated because they are down by 12. However, the clubs and tourneys make a pile of money, the sponsors are happy, and for a few players, some buzz is generated. All that is great & fine, but the idea that it's "for player development" is a joke.

Sorry your son couldnt make a top club team and win some games and tournaments. That kind of thinking will not get your son a D1 scholarship.

Didn't T91 go 1-15-1 last year at 2028?

D1 scholarships lol. Our MD boys in the 2026-2029 range are probably at the end of MD/NJ/NY/NE scholarship dominance as the programs in CA, TX, GA, and FL grow to fill up roster slots in ACC and Ivy League schools. Our sons may beat that wave of kids to college but it's coming.

That wave is already here.

It’s here and they have learned by watching all the tricks to advantages too! holdbacks are becoming the norm for them as well. Lots more competition for D1 spots and more of them , will be going to the powerhouses and kids that are forming in those states. Hotbeds are changing.

Out of state players didnt take long to catch up to the whole holdback bonanza going on. Most UA teams from different regions are loaded with holdbacks.

Crazy , but it works at the high level as long as your son is a very good player to begin with.

You start playing 8th through 11th grade....those days are over. Defenders and zone play will eat you up.

If you are playing against teams and in leagues where kids of this age can just take it to the goal on any given possession - then these kids aren’t very good. Perhaps you could find some more competitive lacrosse?

Both teams I think looked good. All the girls are talented players. Parents should be proud of them and all their hard work is paying off. Both teams will be exciting to watch for years to come. Not affiliated with either team just another team parent that was there watching and observing.

She's not the kind of coach your daughter is looking for, but she obviously is the kind of coach the committed were looking for.

This is pretty accurate though I might knock Elevate off the list completely as over the last two years their top 10 players have all left for other clubs. Empire should be above FLG as they have a decent team


This old list is completely inaccurate. Empire lost their goalie and a solid attacker to jesters. They will likely be back at the bottom. I think top guns and jesters move up, elevate empire 91 all stay bottom three, flg a tier ahead & libert, Weiner, and legacy stay too 3

Agree w/most, using any kind of ranking based on last season is most definitely inaccurate. So much movement in the off season.

Remember this is simply based off of any type of Fall ball and recent acquisitions/departures on field and staff. Don’t stress too much about any of this parents. A lot of lacrosse to be played. After Weiner, top 5 teams are similar in skill set and club offerings (Training, Recruiting Capabilities, Showcases attending etc)


YJ Weiner
Legacy
Jesters Black
YJ Ramos
Liberty *invisible, so who knows
YJ Kildare
Lax On
YJ Osullivan
Top Guns Black
Empire Bengals
91 Bandits Orange
FLG
Top Guns Purple
91 Bandits Navy
Recon
Ohana

I’d suggest moving some of those top ten teams lower down. Go check out scores from national fall lax today and you may have a different opinion.

Only team from list that played at the National Fall Lax Tourney was LaxOn. And your point?
