Great post. Second time around here too and the perspective definitely changes. For my oldest, the joy of the weekend came out of competing and hoping her team beat the other teams and watching her play and grow. And that's fine. But what we learn is that ultimately, that success (or lack thereof) is really not all that important and that what is sustainable is what they do with their talents on (but mostly off) the field. In the end, I could not possibly be happier than I am about my oldest daughter's outcome.

But all that being said, my favorite part of this weekend was not winning or making a great play etc. (and sure, those were cool things) but instead it was walking on the boardwalk in OC and handing my kid a $20 bill and telling her she could go on a bunch of rides. Honestly, what I am going to remember most about this past weekend is not the short fields, the rainy weather, the short games, the drunk parents late on Saturday night, but what I am going to remember is having fun with my kid and seeing her be a little girl and a fierce competitor all on the same weekend.

It goes fast. Enjoy it!

How is it possible that as the girls get older they play a less structured game? My daughter is on a 2017 team, and since they hit recruitment age, it has become the most selfish style of play I've ever witnessed. Everyone is out for themselves and the team be damned. It's a shame. You would think the coaches would discourage this but it actually seems as if they really don't care as long as they get the W.

AHHHH. Finally! A parent speaks of a memorable moment with their daughter and not any LAX smack. That memory of watching her play some boardwalk games with a smile is far more important then a LAX game!

So then save the 3 grand a year and just go on family vacations instead or be brave enough to say you love that your kid is on the YJ's like the rest of us and wear your sweatshirt proudly

question if anyone can answer....I was up at the PAL complex yesterday and there was YJ lacrosse on the main turf field. it appeared to be a scrimmage I assume. or was that one team because when the girls took a lap around the field I counted about 40 or more girls. no way does one team carry that many girls. how do they all get on the field? Looked like a high school age team.
