Someday you'll learn that winning an 8th grade tournament is meaningless. It's about these kids getting better. VLC, Madlax, BW all play in tournaments that get them exposure. Some tournaments are better than others, but all three get their kids plenty of looks from coaches.
That's the point of club lacrosse - improving the kids' abilities and getting them recruited. Nobody cares 2 years from now who won Crabfeast, etc.
There are plenty of good kids out there, especially once they are in HS. No need for some lunatic dad to try to organize all the kids on one team.
Says the owner of one of the clubs not in this top three.
