Anybody have insight on any large shift of players from team-to-team at the 2024,2023,2022 ages between Express North/CT, PT, Eclipse, 2Way, Preds?
Massive turnout at tryouts for all teams. Many many kids went from eclipse , 2 way express, pt and preds in that order and are now left with TS 91 and warriors. As a result of that, kids were bumped around big time. It felt like every lax player was trying out this year. I think kids that were bumped off of express or pt were shocked they were also cut from predators. Super competetive out there and 90 minutes is. Not a lot of time to make an impression
All very true. No one seems to mention 3d Tri-sate. Solid program with people who care. Defections have been a problem because 3d doesn't sell hype like the others do (which is sad because it winds up hurting the 3d program).
Can you shed some light on 3D. Tourneys. Etc.
Large emphasis on stick skills and ball movement. They really pound their field/box model which is a lot of two man game mixed with quick ball movement.
Tourneys are selected based on what they have at each level. They have gone to Maryland Young Guns, and Big 4-HHH (AAA tourneys) and they have gone to Stowe (B tourney). It all depends on the talent they have on a roster.
They also do a couple of their own and attract talented teams from around the country. You'd be surprised how much good lacrosse is played in places like Georgia, Colorado, NorCal, and or course New England.
