The best competition is not 5 hours away. Crush 2020 is a special team and has been for years. But besides that the teams up their are hit or miss. Crabs was in the finals in 3 of 4 divisions and won 2 titles. Crabs 2020 is weakest of the Crabs teams and they were still top 3. Between Baltimore, Philly, and DC is the best lacrosse in the country. Long Island is also very good but doesn't seem to have the depth of good teams that Baltimore Metro area does.
And they never substitute, most other elite teams play everyone whereas Crush just plays their starters, so keep the two best attackman on the field the entire game makes it tough for anyone to compete.
Not true, only reason Boston, Philly, Balt/DC does well at summer club tourneys is because the vast majority of their rosters are populated with older kids. It is what it is, so show some humility.
