Re: Westchester NY Youth Lacrosse Anonymous 1 hour ago
My son has been on PrimeTime for a number of years. What I like is that they have only one team at each grade level and the organization is fully committed to those players. The program director knows each player and family. There is no money grab secondary team distractions like many other programs. Yes, rosters are more fluid at the younger grades, but stabilize at the high school level with few roster changes in those years. It is much harder to crack the roster at the HS level.

Seems to be be run by S2S.

Yup. Just a bunch of Long Island coaches with a college coach sprinkled in here or there. All the college coaches they advertised were not there. Overall I thought the event was overpriced. Best part is they make you give the jersey back after your done. Seems cheap and with covid just downright gross

Who coached your son’s team?

Why does it matter ?

Because you said the college coaches were sprinkled in!, suggesting there weren’t a lot of coaches. There were also many college players (including some great ones). Each team had a college assistant working as the HC.

It was very expensive
The pinnie return was a joke

But it was as advertised, you got what you paid for!

Who did BLC beat in the fall? To me, they’ve been a very good team since 2019 NGLL.

I expect SW to improve over the next few seasons, had a late start compared to most of these teams.

I am not putting down the other clubs, just saying that College coaches want to grow the game and are looking at midwest, TX, CA and will take those girls if equal to LI girls to do so. So you may be surprised that the offers aren't as you think they will be.


Are you serious. Their job depends on obtaining, teaching, coaching and most of all Winning. Do you think they are going to not take the best players. Geez.

It says if equal. Read again.

Yes, they are good. The better 2nd teams are 91, Express and Rush. They are all organized, have good coaches, and that will translate into a positive experience. All might not win every game, but the commitment and is there. Igloo and Shore to Shore have 2nd teams, but don’t know much about them. The rest of the 2nd teams you probably want to do your research on.

He will be the assistant coach for women’s lacrosse at Maryland before his daughter graduates. Mark my words - he cannot control himself 🤣

Re: 2020-2021 Women's College Lacrosse Season Anonymous 11/28/20 08:33 PM
Yeah seriously. Put it in D1 first. Almost ever game is streamed. Again replay is in every other NCAA sport that is a NON REVENUE-Baseball, softball, volleyball, soccer, field hockey, so why not lacrosse. It makes no sense not to have it.

If they can’t see off the streamed version then don’t over turn it. But put it in the game so when it matters they have it. There was a blatant crease call in one game for example.

There are things that refs don’t see based on angles etc..not fault of theirs. So like other sports it would be a nice aid
To get it right. There has to be a reason that they don’t have this, but pass every other meaningless things.

The same thing goes for the Prostart players and coaches. It was a showcase with coaches from several colleges. This is not how you act on or off the field. This kind of display shows poor coaching and parenting. If any of the players on my team acted this way they would be benched and forced to apologize. I would never offer a spot to a player who can not control his temper. Winning and Loosing is part of the game. Win or loose please have some class. You demean our sport.


T, the opposite of loose is tight. The opposite of win is lose. Please learn the language before you are critical of others.

His grammar is off but his point is spot-on. Time for Looney’s to look in the mirror and make some changes!!

Any thoughts on that ?

True blue needs to compete to be talked about. Stop hiding in garbage tourneys. Their teams blew apart at all ages, they play in b tournaments yet they sell their programs as “A teams”. Each team lost major players at every age except 2022 because that’s the the team that has the only good coaches they have in the program. The 2024 team CANT beat or COMPETE in a “A bracket” and all their other team are the same. Nothing wrong with a b level program and that’s what they have become. The real question is why do all their best players eventually leave. Ponder that thought.

True Blue has only ever lost to Launch. Igloo and Launch have traded one-goal wins recently so they're the same, tied at 4th.

True blue is irrelevant at every age level and Kat is the worst thing that any kid could have to experience. Who has true blue beat ? Thats right no one let’s think again for a second yup still no one. Tell yourselves whatever you need to but the reality is win lose or draw run far away from true blue and the Kat clowns

The facility, the academics, the sports, the food, even the moms who drop the kids off are extra hot. The whole experience is great. Unfortunately with 3 kids, colleges, probably grad school too, prep school would be a tough financial pill to swallow.

Most prep schools are inflated hype for rich people. Often it is a place for kids who, for various and valid reasons, just aren't thriving in their public school or in their personal development. Makes sense. Parents rich enough to try something else can afford to send them away. Oddly it is students who already come from very rich towns with great public schools who dominate prep schools. I mean boarding schools, not local day or Catholic schools. Though those places also are full of kids from rich towns.

Top prep schools are excellent and provide an amazing experience not public HS can touch. But most aren't any better than a decent public HS. I'd say 90% of preps offer nothing better than a Bronxville, Scarsdale, Pleasantville etc can offer in terms of academics.

But this is about lax. Prep schools have completely ramped up their devotion to sports, though, and recruiting mixed with facilities means they are just like college sports these days. Preps have holdbacks, college connections, and are surging in lacrosse, especially in the Northeast.

Re: MadLax Lacrosse Anonymous 11/25/20 10:57 PM

The MadLax roster cheating that I am aware of has involved lower divisions, where MadLax plays its combined teams in the lower grade, rather than the upper grade like they are supposed to. For example, they will play a combined 2025/2026 B team in a 2026 B division, knowing that they would get killed if they played up in 2025 B. Shady behavior yes, but it does not affect the higher divisions that readers of this forum care about, such as HoCo Elite. I only know of one instance of roster cheating in an elite division, and that was by the Canadian team Evolve at Hershey in 2019. They had kids within their program running between games and playing for two different aged teams, and were DQ'd when parents of an opposing team (Team Maryland) saw it and turned them in. I do not think that roster cheating happens very often, but if anybody knows of another example(s) go ahead and share.[/quote]

Key phrase "that I am aware of..." Madlax also did the same thing at Hershey and recently double rostered players in a Fall 2020 tournament. That's 2 more and there are much more. Most area teams are keenly aware of how Madlax operates and openly ask questions at the start of games and question whether they are playing a registered roster.

The end of every Madlax defender sentence has something to do with college commits. Unfortunately, as you track their commits on their own web site the quality of those commits gets worse and worse. The 23's will boost it but that's only because that team was brought over by a defunct club.
