First its Green Hornets rec lacrosse dressed up as a club team - pay $200 or $2k - you tell me
GH sold its soul but that's just what it is. Apparently they did a number of roster changes from the previous year's GH roster. The real test will come by spring/summer if they can compete at the elite levels they're targetting. I expect they could certainly become an elite level club. Overnight, no. Several people also question if all of these Severna Park High School affiliated coaches will have time for the teams come spring.
GH will never be an elite program. Too much Daddy ball from Dads who themselves were probably B level talent growing up, if they even played at all. Bringing in Mesa to milk the parents Of their cash won’t change anything. The good players end up at the Hawks, if they’re good. Everyone else shuffles between the other B level programs like sidewinders, AYLC, PLC, DBacks, and now True.
Programs like Mesa and True are the reasons teams like the Hawks stay good. It allows a completely watered down product under the name of club lacrosse while continuing to just stretch the talent out at so many different teams rather then having a few very good club teams. Both of those programs are rec lacrosse dressed up with a 2k price tag. At the end of the day the parents are the suckers that allow it, so kudos to the directors for figuring out a way to get paid. But hey, at least at Severna Park Tap House you can tell your friends your kid plays for a "real" club team despite the fact 75% of the kids can't pass and catch.
