2023 Express North apparently pretty strong but time will tell. Apparently some screw ups with North 2020 and 2021. Was supposed to be AA, A and B in Westchester but there was a big exodus. AA still very solid but they were forced to distribute the B level kids to A in Westchester and A in Fairfield. Basically put some very weak kids on what would have been solid A teams. Folks not happy with the miscalculation.
What does that mean? Are you saying that there are no longer 3 teams in Katonah for 2020 and 2021? And that there are two teams in Fairfield? I thought Fairfield only had 1 team each, and supposed to be AA?
There is on 2020 and one 2021 in Fairfield and they are definitely not AA especially after the moved kids from the Westchester B team that fell apart from poor numbers. My friend whose kid plays in Fairfield is livid.
Your "friend" must have a son on 2021 because that is not the case for 2020. There are zero kids on the 2020 Fairfield team who have been moved from Katonah. Now, I am not disagreeing with you that the skill sets are extremely broad- that is definitely the case. Not sure exactly what the thought process was when rostering Fairfield teams (if there even was a thought process beyond taking strongest players to put on Katonah AA and then dividing the remaining players by zip code and allocating to a team) but there are some players on this team that have NO business playing on ANY Express team. Could be that fact that is fueling the rumors.
Anyone who is surprised by this shell game is simply not listening.
If ANY club has more than one team at a grade level you can be darn sure they will work hard to make the 'A' squad as good as they can be and you can also be darn sure they will basically neglect the 'B' squad as they are there only to pay the bills.
This has been demonstrated time and time again.
Primetime's top two studs went down to LI Express. That pretty much makes the most the odds-on favorite to win the WSYL.
It was only one middie that went to LI Express on the Island and yes he was a stud. Lets see how it all pans out.
