thanks in advance for your help


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.


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.

91 is all holdbacks and Daddy-ball. Have fun at the Warrior Games this year. Note: just because they tell you you're an "All American", it really doesn't mean a whole lot once you leave Amherst....

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.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

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.

Parents wouldn’t pay for that twice. Maybe next years tuition will be paid for as well. I’m sure these things would be done. Denver is becoming organization vs organization, not team vs team. Last year was incredible, the winning team were together for the entire season. No end of the year add on players.
they changed the team before the season, poaching players from all teams, offering free tution , while kids that played with the club since the fisrt grade sat and watched . All for what, they will be far from the best team this year No one cares about the tourney.

I’m not from Y, but I’ve rooted for them since 1985.
I do not follow them intently. I prefer to follow D1.

There is no question about Y’s history, its dominance in Sec 1 and the # of GREAT All-Time players it has produced. But, currently, I believe the biggest issue at Y is that they have not a had a signature WIN, over a top ranked opponent in a very long time.

If the Y faithful could provide the forum with date and score of the last big time win, it could end this debate (or not).

Actually 1st comment was the question regarding what was up with the Hawks. Accompanied with the score along with the 2nd question asking if all their players were playing. Seems to be nothing but propaganda tactics we've all seen a million times on this board. Is BL 6 goals better than the Hawks? The score alone tells you the story without having to make a production out of asking. It's the fall, probably their 3rd event, and they were missing players. Again, this is BL fishing for compliments about great they are.

This is a non story and non event. Definitely kids on here.

If you know anything fall ball is fall ball. Worry after there is no more football and kids aren't hurt from other sports.


The CoachC team is lacking on Defense. They are very slow to react and are missing slides constantly! That's the difference this year from past years !

I guess it really is who you know, unless CR is using them as the sacrificial lamb with the plan of Splalina taking Nationals and Lomo taking the Mid Atlantic.

Makes no sense otherwise.

Maybe CR doesnt think LOMO can compete in Nationals

G and Ebe split ways. For what exact reason not sure and we will probably never know.


Great Duke’s Nationals minicamp tonight at Loyola - strong 2024 showing with 5-6 new players. Excellent numbers at the younger ages. Instagram post appears to be a lot of noise nothing more.


older teams are gone, what's the point of the younger teams, are they going to try and keep these together?

I saw the pic too and there are about 35-40 kids total. From all age groups-usually don't they carry 35-40 on their each team
