Rebels stealth are 21-0 and have won every tourney they have played. Iglioo is 15-4 and have lost to rebels 3 times. That’s the facts Jack. It’s Rebels going into to next season. I see a few little Eskimo’s looking to move over the Rebs.

Good luck to all the boys playing in the WSL games this weekend.

May the best team win and I hope everyone stays positive and enjoys this special experience to make a wonderful memory.

Thank you to WSL for stepping in to give my son this age based experience.

You are kidding yourself if you don’t think that will happen in lacrosse, the most important sport in the MIAA. If a boy that played varsity lacrosse anywhere can transfer to a MIAA school and not sit, the MIAA will have to allow no-penalty transfers within the league. I’ll bet we see a lawsuit over this. Bringing in OOS players and letting them play right away will create bitterness and chaos.

Bitterness and chaos is already part of the MIAA - that's what happens when the most entitled people in Maryland send their kids to the same schools.

That would help. Madlax is small. If they do have holdbacks, they’re runts.

Crabfeast = money grab for the Crabs club. Four fields at Goucher, two grass fields are in terrible shape, the stadium grass field isn’t much better. Over a hundred teams, $175 per player. Huge revenues. garbage fields with not enough parking. Teams come from all over to play in this one. Why?

Why Sweetlax Invite had so many colleges and great teams at oldest levels. Changing.

Crabfest had most of the top teams in the country. With over a hundred teams - no single facility would be able to accommodate this event (i.e. DE Turf). Also need to be near a big city for the thousand hotel rooms. So what other central location you would put this tournament near?

Columbia and use all the HoCo turf fields. Compared with HoCo facilities, Goucher is a dump.

All you jabronies are too blind or dense to see it. It’s about profit margins with crabs. He does whatever it takes to make his teams seem better than they are to draw the large crowds to his tournaments and camps. He’s a marketer not even a former lacrosse player. He used goucher because his mini-me assistant coach, works at goucher.

Wow, Sounds like your son got cut from Crabs, Maybe look inward and see if your son is up to elite lacrosse like our sons are. Tryouts are soon for Crabs, Good Luck

Looks like both 27 and 28 teams are entered but you must be born before Sep 1 2009 for U13, so basically no holdbacks.

Saw that too but each team is allowed 6 exceptions so what’s the point anyway. Thought some of the big 3 might be playing there but only saw Coppmine as a local team.


Many families would go bonkers if you over scheduled their only free weekend from June to mid-July.

Can we talk about the illegal sticks being used, and why no stick checks in club?

Coaches can ask for a stick check anytime they want. If they lose, other team gets the draw.

For the 2024 class, this season all that matters is having competitive games and showing up to play in those games. The college coaches don't really care if your team is winning or losing, unless it's a blowout. Most coaches will walk away from those blowouts and find another game, as it isn't a good indicator of a player's abilities on either side. Worry less about the W's and L's and more about showing up to play regardless.

If you're sitting on the sidelines and your daughter is getting hits on IWLCA Recruits, that's always a good thing. My daughter played at New England Cup this past weekend and had a lot of hits on her profile, so I'll take that as a positive for her recruiting efforts. (Full disclosure, my daughter doesn't play on a LI team, so I have no dog in this LI club "greatness" fight.)

Some of you are too neurotic about the W's and L's and lose sight of the goal/end game.

Such a shame. The young lady isn’t the problem. Mom is.

None of this is true and shame on you for gossiping about a kid. The person causing low morale is looking to go to M&D - so no- not heros

Just leave these people alone.

M&D doesn't need the headache or the drama!

Re: Boys 2027 Grads - Mid Atlantic Region Anonymous Yesterday at 02:56 PM
Coaches/clubs generally pick tournaments based around club history with a tournament, cost, location, general level of competition and date.

The REAL wrangling comes in when programs make scheduling requests the week before the tournament to get in a favorable bracket and avoid tougher teams in pool play. It's why the schedules change so many times the week before:

"We would like to play a team that we didn't face 3x this spring already."
"Any chance we could be in a pool with some new teams from out of state?"

And more and more...

It's not a accident that the teams who have parent companies that host the tourneys usually get decent draws. And generally the big clubs have more sway with requests because they are sending many teams to the tournament (and others).

Re: True Annapolis Anonymous Yesterday at 02:47 PM
How is True handling the Koopers takeover?

Who are coaching those teams?

When they "partnered" with Kelly Post, they took all the top kids at KP and funneled them to the Baltimore team and moved the bottom half of the Baltimore team to Kelly Post.

Are they gonna do the same with Koopers?

Parents stuck with this situation- make sure you ask who is coaching your kid and know what team they will be a part of. It matters.

How about governing the clubs themselves. Owners act with impunity. US Lacrosse has no real interest in clubs lacrosse. Owners have inflated rosters, inflated pricing, guest players, you name it they've done it. Unfortunately chances of finding an honest operator is like winning the lottery.

Completely agree. I just thought eliminating club hopping would be easier to implement.

I don't understand how eliminating club hopping is doable. It's a free country. Parents pay for a service for their kids to play for (and trained by) certain clubs. If I am not happy with the service I get, you are telling me that I can't switch clubs?

All teams will be seeded in the Championship Bracket that begins play on Tuesday morning. Championships will occur on Wednesday starting at 12:00 pm and occurring every 2 hours until last game starts at 6:00 pm on ESPN.

There was no way any team other than Hawks was going to end up #1 seed - it was all subjective 😂

Stats would make Madlax Nationals or BBL 1,2 sead

Can’t use stats because there were way too many lopsided games on day 1. You had some very good teams going 1-1 and some mediocre teams going 2-0 because they played two really bad teams. You could argue that the committee got it right because the top 4 seeds all ended up in the semis.

Stop making sense, please. This is BOTC!

As many have noted 91 girls sometimes have stronger youth teams but as soon as they hit Highschool all the good ones run. They will soon fall behind again. Having spallina freaking out will make 91 look worse as they get older and parents are going to get tired of the directors and owners of the club getting carded in elementary school gamws

To be completely honest 91 girls don’t have any strong teams except 2029. The only reason why that team is any good is because Spallina coaches it.

91 2030’s just beat legacy who are solid team
