No, you have to commute to Maryland to find a good team.

She has played for our town, but never at the club level. North shore of Nassau. If someone could provide some comments on the various teams on LI it would be great. Looking for a nice group that isn't too crazy.

In the Lax4backpacks tournament Elevate didn't look too good.

i think at this age the organization that stays on LI is the winner. No need to go traveling off island.

You do have enough on the island to keep it fun and competitive. Practice at this age is what your looking for not time on the turnpike.

I had not heard of them before, but we played Igloo this year and I was impressed. They seem like a good all around team. Not sure where they are out of or what their story is- but it was a local tournament.

Blue Devils 2023 played in the 2023/2022 division and took 1st place. They lost in playoff to a 2022 team. My daughter is on that team and love it.

Is there really any reason for 2023 girls to spend half their summer on the Jersey Turnpike? There are enough local tournaments on Long Island at this age.

Listen, my daughter is 2023 but played 2022 this past summer, we did travel and the girls had a blast doing it, but in all of the tournaments that we were in the championship it was against teams from Long Island. The other tournament we werent in the championship we lost in the quarter finals to another Long Island team.

I have mixed emotions about travelling, the girls build such great relationships on the road, but we get the best competition right here in our backyard. There were actually some tournaments where we played our own B team in the finals. Maybe cut the away tournaments down to 1 or 2 instead of 3/4 and that could be the answer. It would also be a lot lighter on the wallet if they were able to do that.

2023 seems to have a great group of long island players, parents, and teams, including new teams to add to the mix... Top LI teams this past summer in 12v12 action were IGLOO 2023, Blue devils. Igloo appears to be the team in this age group from Nassau County (North Shore)... Blue Devils form Suffolk County (South Shore)!!! Both Igloo 2023 and Blue Devils from what Ive heard have plans to stay on Long Island for another year of spring/ summer tournaments... Good move!!
Good luck to all girls in the tryouts! Parents, no need to follow the herd, so many great options!!

Coaches have historically been listed in order of team strength. If that's still the case, Thorn is A.

Are you the same person who is saying the same thing in 2021? Both age groups are start ups and all the invites haven't been accepted yet. So either you have a kid on 21 and 23 or your just trying to start trouble for the new program (most likely the latter). Either way let their record speak for itself in August after the play the season.

Thorn is the A team. Wright's team did beat them. Wrights team had a few 2024s and one 2025 that were probably put there because of their age and not their skill level which may have tipped the balance.

Wright's team struggled all summer but that day Wright's team won that game fair and square. They jumped out to a 3-0 lead right away and played with a purpose and won. By the time the A team began to get their act together it was too late.

There should be big changes in YJ 2023 land. Thorn's team had a lot of talent and it was wasted with inadequate coaching. Coach Thorn did not do right by those girls or the YJ program.

That coach did a terrible job with all that talent and they even lost a game to igloo of all teams.

Team91KS is another talented team...will be fun to watch all of these teams compete at some point this year. Coaching is everything with the younger age brackets-fundamentals and team lacrosse

I believe the Igloo girls teams are very talented. Don't think there is any shame in losing to them. They beat a lot of teams last year. But with that said I think we need to start seeing that the game is expanding, and with that expansion your not going to see all the players play for Yellow Jackets anymore, the talent will go to more local programs.
