I think numbers looked down for Express North & Primetime but could be just for 2020 & 2021...not sure for other grade years. But at close to 75-100$ per try-out doesn't make much sense to try out for 3 or 4 teams anymore.
Looked to be a number of kids at these tryouts for 2021 that had reclassed. Just nuts. And won't they get pushed back up by next year with the new age based rules? I don't get it.
Wasn't at Express North try-outs, but Prime Time 2021 & 2020 teams could both be 50% holdbacks this year
I would be curious to know if the new age based rules will impact club programs. Are clubs somehow bound by the US lacrosse rules or can they just say screw it and keep doing things as they have already done? Nothing on the US lax site addresses this. Anyone have any insight?
I could be wrong but if alliances create their own tournaments like NLF who cares what US Lacrosse says. they will do things as they see fit and why shouldn't they. As long as it is competitive lacrosse. You want like teams playing like teams who cares what the individual age is.
Although I get it as a parent, some dont want to play against older bigger stronger, and some even do the anti sportsmanship thing and prefer their offspring to play down, but my kid always played up.
