Believe me High school coaches have all the power. In most towns you can not even state opinion without it effecting your sons playing time.
Why do you think high school coaches hate early recruiting-because they loose some of that power.
If a kid is an early recruit to a top 20 team- there is a reason for if-He is a good lacrosse player.
Everyone is saying early recruiting does not help out teams- Helped BU- early recruiting got them in top 20 in third season.
What is best for players and family is have playing field as even as possible. Early recruiting is helping that.
Perennial powers now have to compete for players -how is that a bad ting?
There will always be corruption- not all high school teams play the best players- there are friends, political connects etc. If you do not belive that then you are a fool.

Agree. Also, thank god there is a club circuit for the top players. Most of the HS Teams are weak. Yes, even in the Mighty Suffolk A Division the level of play is extremely poor. 9th and 10th graders all over the place. Coaching is weak and pace of play is very slow in most games. Make the conference smaller and allow for more non league games. The top two or three teams in each league a significantly stronger than all others. It is the same story every year.

How does the Nassau Girls Power Conference work? Could a boys power conference work?
