Hit their growth spurts of more than likely HOLDBACKS!! Yes I went there!! The one defenseman is at least 6 foot and runs like a cheetah and hits like a rhino. They have at least 3 midfielders that are close to 6 foot with the athleticism of freshman in HS. This team loaded with holdbacks; prove me wrong! It’s the CH blueprint!!

Re: Boys High School Anonymous Yesterday at 09:49 PM
With each player reference - refer to month/year of birth as well as height/weight.. So when Ty soils himself with how big and strong a kid is, making it look easy, etc.. everyone is clearly aware that same kid had problems finding the classroom attended cohorts of his own age. Wonder why Ty doesn't find diamonds in the rough - he's busy promoting players who have already been selected by coaches, etc.

I’m hearing that if fall sports are cancelled then FL will allow fall practices for lacrosse and possibly allow some inter league scrimmages in the fall.

So it’s on their website. Actually one of the only teams that are not stringing parents along like my son’s team.
Teams are staying together. Tourney fees will be applied to next year. And 2021s are getting their money back. Show me one other organization who is actually taking money out of their pocket and returning it?

My kids team isn't. The organization posted tuition fees beginning in September, with no mention regarding number of tournaments.

Re: Should Travel Clubs Issue Partial Refunds if Lax is Cancelled? Anonymous Yesterday at 01:26 PM
My kid will be entering the recruiting phase next year. For us, I don't see the point traveling out of state to attend a tournament without college recruiters in attendance. School ball is even a question mark at this point. Maintain physical conditioning, skills, etc and remain ready when the gates open. Right now as a family, we have time to enjoy some things that were placed on the back burner when we ran around like lunatics from practice to weekend tournaments. Families that want to attend tournaments, that's fine, those who don't, that's fine too. The empirical data, name calling is all unnecessary. Do what YOU feel is best for your family. Just remember, clubs were formed to make money.

Zero risk to children? What are your credentials to say that?

I'm obese, bald, with high blood pressure, and have fat ankles. I squeeze my fat feet into a size XL flip flop.
thats the CDC and the WHO, and hundreds of doctors doctors saying it. Read and do research. The Flu has affects more kids.
The cdc says that kids arent at a higher risk than adults. Thats a far cry from zero risk. Stop playing internet doctor.

My 13 year old is hangining out with friends every day. Most are. Not a mask in sight. I don't see how playing lacrosse, dressed like a gladiator, is any different. In fact, may be more safe than running around the neighborhood. If your kids are at home in the bubble, then don't let them play. It's that simple.[/quote


One has nothing to do with the other, my kid is doing the same but we are talking about organized sports. College football, a billion
$ industry is most likely not playing till spring ( ivy already announced and other leagues as a first step to cancelling only playing in league) do you really think anyone cares about lacrosse. It’s a lost year hopefully all will be fine next season.

You must be a real pleasure to be around. There are a million what ifs , why not try to make as many whole as you can. You obviously do not have a college senior and my guess is your kid is still in high school and you realize the competitive landscape just got a little harder. Some of these schools have billions in endowments , let them spend some of that.

Also seems like schools with billions in endowments have decided not to spend it on their sports programs.

Before you say it, yes my son plays for one of the ranked teams.

No he doesn’t.

Of course he doesnt, That is why the ranking bothers him.

The rankings only draw the ire of below average club operators that have bad training & teams.

And parents who son couldnt make the better ranked teams.

Re: fl$ Lawsuit Anonymous 07/07/20 04:51 PM
Not a nasty post about the kid at all. You are reading it wrong. In 8th or 9th grade the kid was not on any radar as one of the best fogo's on LI and was 50% at best. He kept developing and would've made any team as a junior/senior on LI. Development is not a linear line. Fortunately for him he had a steep arc. Leave Plandome alone. Good people there. I'm sure the folks at FLG are indeed happy for him. Great kid great family.

I would agree with you that is the case but I heard the boys tourney in Tennessee was a huge success. They are playing alot in MD as well
So I think it won’t be all 12 regions. West and south and Midwest won’t come.
The team most likely will be 8-10 TG and YJ and 2 Jesters
Any other kids from any other programs really good enough to make team?? Worth a shot just to get some pure competition. Whole tryout is scrimmages so maybe it’s worth it despite not making it

A few Legacy girls are decent!

Decent won’t cut it unless Levy is picking the team.


Levy had final say last year and only took 1-2 players from legacy who were originally alternates
