Are we still arguing about this? Our boys are sophomores. They all understand the way the game is played. Most of our kids will just have to work harder to keep up with older kids on same grade club teams. If they don't become a famous lacrosse player but they learn ethics of hard work and teamwork they will be OK in life.

Get yer 1/12 early or miss out!


For a private college, 1/12 times $75k times four years is $25k (a little less if you PV it) of tax free money.

Ok, so you pay $275,000 and save $25,000. For those holdbacks it becomes a wash since you paid that amount in tuition for the extra year. For the rest it means maybe recouping the wasted money paid in club dues, gas, hotels, and car wear/tear. notIntelligent racket.

Not a VLC or RR parent but a goalie dad--but FYI that goes both ways. Your boy would do well to keep his head on a swivel if he comes near the crease next time they play. Defenders and goalies absolutely remember jersey numbers.

Dead period extended til Jan 1 terrible for 21,22 recruits

NCAA is over reacting once again. Why extend this all the way to January? With all this I truly believe the spring is on jeopardy once again

21’s out there really suffer. Many 22’s have larger window

Wonder if next summer will be the same with the vaccine a year away[/quote]

Ridiculous[/quote]

Many schools said they are waiting to be able to watch in person. Now with this how does it change fall lacrosse ?[/quote]






Film will remain important Clubs must make sure it is. good quality film

Yes Catholic schools, they just have not officially announced it yet.

Now there is extra time for prayer.

DI Council Extends Recruiting Dead Period TM@BOTC 09/17/20 06:10 PM
The Division I Council extended the recruiting dead period through Jan. 1. The Council has been reviewing the dead period on a regular basis since April. A dead period precludes all in-person recruiting. Phone calls and correspondence can continue to occur.

Members also adopted emergency legislation prohibiting schools from giving complimentary game tickets to prospective student-athletes and their high school or two-year college coaches during the dead period.

While the Council acknowledged and appreciates the growing desire to resume in-person recruiting by select coaches’ associations, Council members ultimately concluded the primary concern right now must be protecting the current student-athletes on our campuses,” said Council chair M. Grace Calhoun, athletics director at Pennsylvania. “We encourage our coaches to interact with prospective student-athletes virtually in this time period.”

The decision to implement the dead period was first made at the onset of the COVID-19 crisis. The Council has continued to extend the dead period under the guidance of medical experts. The majority of coaches associations also supported an extension of the dead period

A lot of details missing. First, there was no tournament this past weekend. There was only a game. The team played in a tourney the previous weekend and by all accounts, the girl did not have covid at that time. Her family became aware of her having it on this past Saturday, immediately notified the coach and the coach immediately canceled all activities and notified all families on the team. Many other girls were then tested and all are negative. It was handled as well as it possibly could have been handled. If you hear otherwise, it is lies.

Probably a little early to make a call on any club with the 2022 class... but these kids were going to have the same results no matter what club they were on, they are just really good lacrosse players. Moreover, I do not think that LE can take any credit for developing these kids, they just aggregated them onto a team. What will be more telling is how LE fares in the next few years now that the competition has caught up in NJ. As is evident with the LE 2023 team, they are not drawing the best 2023 kids in the state, this trend will continue as time goes on.

Your statement makes them an even better club. They "aren't drawing the best kids" but are placing more players!

When you lose, rotate players in/out every year, you will keep losing as best players jump to other club teams as weaker players replace them.

Express North has always been a mess at 2023. Eclipse made the tough but correct move a couple of years ago to discontinue its 2023 A team and stick with a single 2023 team. The team stayed together for a couple of years and got much stronger. Now with the team nationally ranked reclasses are going to that team making it even stronger. So strong that the new A team is as strong as some 2023 AA teams.
