Re: Girls High School Lax Anonymous 4 hours ago
SOS!!! What is happening to WANTAGH? The girls still use the same plays from when Rooney was around. But now those plays aren't working because they aren't NEW plays or RUPPERT'S PLAYS; they are OLD PLAYS!! My daughter graduated, and many alum families watched last night's game vs South Side. We still talk to many families with girls still on the team, and WANTAGH has to do something fast.

The new coach, Ruppert, is out of her league. She's not bringing anything to the table and is ruining that program. But despite the bad coaching, I've got to hand it to the girls; they're really stepping up. The team captains are doing an amazing job holding everyone together, and the players are really supporting one another.

It's great to see them keep their spirits up and try their best, even when things aren't running smoothly behind the scenes. Wantagh, figure it out! You can forget Manhasset. They already know to watch the film from Maddie Taylor's year.

Thanks, but I’ll save the 52k in a 4 year HS tuition and use it for my sons college education. The education in most public schools is way better than an education at St John’s. As long as you have a pulse and a bachelors degree you can become a teacher at a Catholic HS. Public Schools actually require a certification to teach. If my son plays on a bad public school team but plays for a top tier travel program, he’ll get plenty of looks.


I was thinking it and you said it first.

You don't even need to play for a "top tier" travel program. College coaches will find you if you're actually good enough.

It's very simple, Colorado didn't travel and spend tons of cash to lose, did they cheat, most likely, can anyone do anything about it, NO. This is going to continue for the rest of our children's youth lax careers until they reach High school and then the playing field is somewhat leveled. USA Lacrosse as a governing body has failed our kids, they have allowed premier clubs across the nation to gain the upper hand. It is too late for age verification. Until Rosters are certified and roster checks are performed pregame by referees (like soccer) there will always be cheating. It's unavoidable, as most coaches and parents can't help themselves. So for now, just accept the fact teams will cheat and hope that it helps your child get better playing against kids 1-2 years older. Best of luck next weekend, predicting an NLF Final as a battle for the ages, 91 Colorado vs Lax Black.

If they aren’t reaching out to you proactively you have a low chance. So even if you try out for a position they have a gap it’s very rare and unknown quantity gets picked up. Joining a practice before tryout is always a good move as you can be seen and evaluated and perhaps get done individual feedback. Good luck.

Even if they are proactively seeking you it doesn't mean much. It's part of the game all clubs play. Get a kid to leave one club with promises of playing time, fame and glory. Just to bench him.
Look at what express did last year taken on all those kids..... Most of the newbies play on the orange team ........

AS rosters are not out yet, but I have talked to enough people to have some sense of who’s on which team. Part incompetence and part politics, as you would expect. Heros girls who made yellow got bumped up to red after their moms complained, and the coppermine girl who got cut in first round magically ended up on red after her mom made some calls.

Too many girls, not enough educated eyes? Poor drills that do not show talent? I don't know, but I do know its not a case of "girls needing to look in mirror". Give me a break.

Congrats on your kid making a team though.

I don't think any 33 team has played Nitro yet bc they haven't entered any tourneys. It's like they're scared to enter a 33 tourney and get a loss. It's 3rd grade lacrosse, kids must be having a ball of fun on that team wink I think they played in one tourney 32 bracket and lost.

Only for us in the know to know. Sorry
Oh please. You don’t know anymore than anybody else does. If there’s a transfer goalie coming and it’s not from McDonogh. All of those girls read this for him and as soon as you guys started posting about it, they started asking the goalies. Nobody’s going anywhere. Get a grip.

Ok Bill Belichick. You understand this is 7th grade lacrosse?

That read like a joke to me. But seriously, that team has played NAL every year so why not this time?

They were offered to play in the B bracket as the A runner ups in regionals but turned it down.

Interesting. I guess competition not worth traveling all the way down?

It's hard to expect families to do this sort of thing during the school year.

Because they did not lose as much as the other holdback filled teams and they were fortunate to gain on-age talent who were actually getting coached and playing rather than riding the bench and playing defense against the starting 6.

This is so silly. The Hawks are noticeably smaller than the other top teams in that division. Just give them their due and move on.

Thanks Hawks dad, now go back to the Annapolis Yacht Club and sip some girly drinks. Funny how you deflect from the fact that the 28 Hawks also have holdbacks. I guess because they are your holdbacks and not big holdbacks it makes it ok. It's fine, Annapolis isn't known for manly men.

Hawks like many MD teams have single and double holdbacks. The rest of us are supposed to bury our heads in the sand and ignore this fact.

Yes. You’re supposed to pretend it’s ok. Just like the parents of those holdbacks pretend their child would look as good on a field with players their own age.

I love how you assume that a kid couldn't hold his own with his own "age". Guess its hard to say one way or the other since every team is doing it. Baseline a kid's performance on the field with no holdbacks and I bet some of those big bad holdbacks you like to complain about would still kick little Johnny's @ChillLaxin on an even playing field. Go ahead and continue to blame all the woes you've experienced on the holdbacks. Guess when little Johnny is playing fresh/soph next year I would love to hear what excuses you conjure up. We will all be waiting in anxious expectation (well, actually not because we will have moved on).
On a positive note, it was a great season and "any given Sunday" played out on the youth lacrosse stage.

Oh please. Work on your reading comprehension. I didn’t say hold their own. I said look as good. And I’m right.
And stop with the little Johnny reference. You have no idea who you are talking to and who their child is. There is no excuses with my son as he has more than excelled on age and is currently playing up. Thats a fact that none of you people ever consider. That the person you’re trying to make fun of is actually in a very different situation than you assume.
And I have no idea who I’m talking to and whether your child is playing on age in a tough league and holding their own, a holdback, or a double holdback. If they are either of the latter, I can tell you this with 100% certainty. They did not stand out on age. You held him back. The only reason he is standing out now is because he is older. I am right. You are wrong. Period.
You people are dense.

Your kid will crush it. At UMBC.
