Heros and M&D are terrible about player development. All about the Wins. Game plans are centered on a few shooters. Practices are designed to design plays to get the ball to the stars. No work on skill development so the ones who are very good but not the stars, don’t get the coaching they need to be better. Opponents should watch some game film and and focus their defenses on stopping the few shooters.

For sure, and you’re right they should count less in rankings. Not just play and coach different but often different coaches and players altogether. If a coach has a conflict he’ll just skip consolation games. If a player is a little banged up, he’ll just sit it out. I saw a couple teams at NAL with that approach.

There are a lot of coaches going. The list is on the website.
That list is from 2019

Sorry, I though this was about the National HS Girls Lax Championships.

Yeah let me know who you see there and the 21s can stay away and let the girls that need experience get some. This is about winning a tourney for the coaches and getting on tv and they will call in alumni if needed.

Call in alumni? From where senior week? They just graduated last week.

Interesting the NAL victory wasn't enough to move the Hawks up...feels like goal differential is given too much weight in this formula.

Totally works for hockey though!
How is Express North still in top 10? They one 1 game at the NAL.

No detest here, but certainly annoyance and slight amusement. Shake my head at it, really.

They actively recruit rec-level kids and shove them into "club" environments where they don't belong.

They regularly water down the leagues and tournaments they enter. Just last weekend, they entered JV A and lost to Crabs 20-0 at Summer Exposure. Gee thanks.

Hashtags and fluorescent uniforms don't equate to culture. There is no toxic culture because there is no culture whatsoever. It's an extension of "Planet Fitness" in the lacrosse world. Have money? You too can play "club lacrosse!" Like many lax clubs//soccer clubs they are another example of what's ruined lacrosse and youth sports in general- money.

On the positive side, they do a great job of selling a dream to kids and parents.

If she is interested in going to any of the schools attending than it’s worth a shot. As a 2022 she should be (trying to) speaking directly with these coaches to hear if there is mutual interest.

I would be afraid that as a 2022 you may be trying to find a needle in a haystack (open roster spots) at these larger showcases. Since many of the D1 school rosters are complete for the 2022 class, I would spend my time and money attending the specific prospect days at the colleges she is already communicating with and has been confirmed by your club recruiting director that she is on the coach’s recruit list for that school. Otherwise you may be wasting a lot of money and road time. Time is of the essence for the remaining 2022 recruits.

Feel for the HOCO team, that won't be a good experience. And yeah, those divisions don't seem aligned very well.

Great attitude. Too many people try to place blame, when you are only looking for advice to help your son.

Great! Thanks. Nice to hear positive things about a tryout. smile

Yep, like Monster, they are upstate, I am just trying to figure out the best outside the state of MD, which I think I have a pretty good understanding of.

It just means less spots at some schools. Go have your son commit to play D2 and D3, because if your son is D1 caliber they will find him. But if he wasn’t a starter on his Hs team this spring, you can give up the D1 expectations and start thinking D2 or D3, which is quality lax. Because those spots are actively being recruited, the time is now.

[ChillLaxin] about your son. Let your kid have fun and play lax. You don’t have to be on the best teams to get recruited, that’s a bunch of B/S. Take video, call or email coaches to get on their radar. Go to individual showcases. Stop the A team garbage and be a real Dad who doesn’t kiss the coaches jerks. It’s sickening! Maybe someday you will get your man card back.
