Couldn't figure out where else to comment about this. Seems like the Pride tournament numbers are way down this year. Also noticed that they are not being covered by BOTC this year. Did something happen with this tournament? No one even knew it was taking place from my surrounding clubs. We thought it was cancelled and left this weekend open.
The 5/6th grade division has a lot of New Jersey clubs. As a festival, not tournament maybe clubs are more interested in possible t-shirts than just a fun day of lacrosse.
I completely agree and see this becoming more of a trend in the future that teams will shy away from "tournaments" that aren't tournament style with playoffs and a champion. JDRF gets away with it because of the charity angle.
JDRF raises money to help sick children. They don't get away with any angle you tool.
