This is their first year, website says Joe Spallina is coaching (daughter is in 3rd). Great coach if he can dial it down to an age appropriate level. Should attract all the parents who think they are raising the next Shannon Smith.

Don't sleep on that grade. Lot of potential D-1 talent there. Probably could take the Wright team before they even have their first practice.

I know tryouts are in December and the team doesn't really exist at this point.

Any parent that signs up a 3rd grader for travel lacrosse is a complete lunatic. Take your kid to Disney, not some cow pasture in backwater, Maryland

Do your homework, there are NO 2025 girls teams. They will have no one their age to play and be forced to play up, there are even very few clubs with 4th grade teams. Your girls will be traveling and for yrs. will be playing older kids and older YJ teams.

Yes, wait until your child is in 6th or 7th grade and then she can get placed on the 5th team with other girls that can't catch or throw. Good call. If your girl wants to play lax, then let her play. That team will be very good eventually. The goalie for that team is already playing on the 2025 91 boys team.

Yes when your 8 year old comes to mom and dad and says I want to travel every weekend to places I've never heard of just to play the one other club that has a 2025 team then who are mom and dad to deny that kid? Get a grip! If she starts when she is in 5th grade, she won't be relegated to the 5th YJ team.

There is PAL to play and towns that play PAL summer leagues, so the idea that a 3rd grade girl has to sit on her hands until she plays travel is utter nonsense. And I dare you to name one 3rd grade girl who tells her parents that she really wants to play travel lax. Its the Mom & Dad who drink the Kool-Aid from a director that says that if your daughter doesn't start now, she will be left behind. Total BS!

I would bet that the tournaments will be local although I haven't confirmed that with YJ. There are plenty of tourneys on LI that have a 3rd grade bracket. Not so much once you leave LI. My daughter, who is a 2025, played on a 2023 team this summer and most out of state tournaments were 2022/23 combined. So I would expect local Long Island tourneys for the 2025s.

With regard to all the other hoopla about it being crazy to do and all that - I say it depends on your kid an whether she's having fun. My kid had a blast this summer and she was sad when the summer season was over. She's a 2025. Every kid is different. Do what you think is best and what your daughter is going to enjoy the most.

It does depend on the kid. The skills built from playing travel from 3rd thru 6th are really important from my experience. Now that my daughter is older, she doesn't need to play full year, only 6 months to maintain those skills - while playing other sports in off-season. If you want to make travel teams in 6-8th grade, the girls need to know the rules. I find that girls that don't play full year early simply don't learn the game. They only play March-May and don't pick up a stick for 9 months.

Taking a 3rd grader on road trips gets costly. If they stay on Long Island it is worth it, especially when most organizations don't charge you the same fee as older girls.
