3 Village is a very strong team and beat another strong Hills in the Syosset Tourny that was town teams and had about 12 town teams entered, 3 village can play a pretty high level travel schedule and be competitive

It is early for the club teams but 91 Orange, Express Orange and Team LI are all pretty good, since 91 and Express will probably never play each other the comparisons will have to be how each does against Team LI, right now based on what I have seen I would give the nod to 91 but all three are very good....IMO

Must be an Express parent reply! There is no basis for that comment!

I agree the Express orange is the team to beat.
Did you see the beatings they put on a few of those "5th" grade teams over the winter?
Very impressive

have to agree with some of the points. the 91 white time was actually pretty good last year and won shamrock and laxfest. But it's a different team now except for a few holdovers from last year.
And for the record, I am not a 91 parent or an express parent.

Yeah, good thing 91 orange is playing in 7th grade, seeing as half their kids should be in 7th grade by age. Yeah, yeah I know they're all 6th graders... Lol!

All these teams have young 99's on them.

Obviously the person that said that half the 91 team should be in 7th grade is not too smart.
Apparently you forgot to check your own roster before adding that one.
Great job Einstein.

Take a look at any PAL grade, that is broken up A and B, you will find that most (not all) of the older kids somehow are on the A team. Just what it is. Read a book called the Outliers. You will find out why the age thing is such a big deal!

This is getting old guys - enough already
if a kid is in the sixth grade and he is scheduled to graduate in June 2018 then he belongs on a 2018 team regardless if he was born in 1998, 1999 or 2,000 so just stop it.

in the past some kids that have been on a grade based team were not eligible to play in age based tournaments (a lot of kids have missed playing in the U15 nationals with their team because although they were legitimately in 9th grade they were born in Oct,Nov or Dec) US lacrosse addressed this when they moved the cut off to 8/31 and now most but not all kids in 9th grade will be eligible.

I also don't buy into the safety issue - our 2018 kids will all be playing middle school next year and the heights will be from 4' 6" to 6' and the weights will vary from 75 lbs to almost 200 lbs and those will mostly all be 2018 kids born in fall 1999 or 2000 so lets all deal with it and get back to talking about how much the other teams suck and not about how old they are or what grade they really should be in.
just my thoughts

I agree with your points. Sounds like people who are whining as usual. The fact that everyone forgets is that tourney ball at this age is to prepare the boys for school ball and beyond. If the kids are that good, they should be playing up against older or better competition. It means nothing who wins now. In the end, no one remembers who won when you were 12 or 13. So if some teams are stacked with kids on the border of the age limit, then the only one's suffering are the boys if they are spending there time beating up lesser competition.

There is nothing to stop. Physical maturity is a major benefit, plain and simple. Just accept it and admit it.(No my kid is not young for his grade, he's old for the grade and his birth date is within the district cut off of his grade. Yes, his size and strength are a benefit.)
For anyone to say that a kid whose born in 1998 and is playing 2018 has no advantage over a 2000 kid, that is just plain stupidity.
Think a couple of years ahead. Why do you think most 10th graders can't compete/start at the HS varsity level? (some can)Stick skills? No, physical maturity!! Unless he's 17 yrs old and in 10th grade. Which is what the 1998 kid playing 2018 will be in 10th grade!
On a higher level. Why do you think a school like Deerfield is so highly ranked in the high school arena? Because northern Mass is a new Hot Bed? No, because they have a boat load of 13th graders playing HS lacrosse.
The only way we will weed out these people who think there's no difference is to go by birth certificate. Plain and simple. Notice it's always the parents of the kid whose older that thinks it's "OK". If two kids are within the same age bracket and one matures earlier, then that's just the luck of the draw. If one is almost a year and a half to two years older and they're playing in the same "GRADE" then that's an unfair advantage. Some might go so far as to call it something else! We'll let people decide what to call it on their own.
