Ummm, are you sure about that. I think Syosset has you beat there, in both categories.


Except the Garden City parents and players readily say "Please" and "Thank You".


Well, at least there's something GC and Syosset parents can all agree on: they wish they could've afforded Manhasset.

Manhasset is great too! I love being able to smell what my neighbor is cooking on his Bar-B-Que and there is such a cosmopolitan feel--like you are in Queens.

GC football was 9-1 in 2015, if that's lean not sure what you consider FAT. But this is a lax discussion, I would ask this, who did GC play last year? Non conference and conference. Out of state and in state? Look it up.

Competitive? Yes. But without a solid keeper don't expect to win any hardware.

This is high school not D1. Nobody does what you're asking.


Syosset does it too. They're called captain's practices and the coach is not "involved". That's how it's done at all the top programs.

The good distinct do. Mine has been practicing 1-2 times a week since early fall.


What District is that?? [/quote

Smithtown East/ West. I susspect they are nit alone

YES - lacrosse goalie is the most over rated position in any sport, kid only has to have nerves of steal and high tolerance for pain, the best goalie is usually the guy with the great defense in front of him that make the offence take bad shots. The game is won and lost on face offs and on ground balls (possessions), the only way a goalie has a huge outcome on a game is with his clears and directing his defense a good shot will beat a good goalie every time.

Why? At least someone is using the fields, since your team is home playing x-box

One of the dumbest thing I've heard on here. If one goalie makes two saves he shouldn't and the other goalie doesn't make two saves he should, it's a game changer. And by the way, the best goalies don't get hit with the ball that often. Unless, of course you are talking about box lacrosse. So this nonsense of just throw someone in there with balls of steel who can make outlet passes, save it for the other parents you're drinking out of red cups with, in the parking lot. Anyone who knows anything about lacrosse can pick out a really good goalie and a really bad goalie in two seconds. And by the way, the elite goalies make the defense in front of them even better, directing the defenses play. So how does that ability make them overrated? Full disclosure, just in case you think my son is a goalie. I coach varsity HS lacrosse and my son played attack. Maybe attack is overrated, where all they have to do is possess the ball and hit your stud midfielder for a goal. That's pretty absurd too.

If you think the game is won on face offs and groundballs, go check the box score of Yale vs Maryland this past weekend.
