How did his kids go in another direction ? His oldest kid is on varsity at Syo. Get the facts correct moron.

I read the previous posts and the reference to his kids was not a bad one. I would prefer that the kids not be brought up at all in this particular conversation.

You talking about the BS about winning the Long Island Championship? Or the BS that SYO 4 game win in scrimmage two weeks ago? Maybe you are talking about the BS that JC has created the best program in Nassau County - so good in fact that the coach from Pequa went to SYO. You can bash them, you can make up whatever you want. 3 parents who think there kid needs more playing time is not "all the parents" looking to get rid of JC. And just because a previous SYO coach has a beef with JC and trying to create rumors and get him fired, doesn't mean parents want him out. Good luck this season wherever you are - if you're playing SYO, you will need it!

If it's an opinion on a kid you are correct . Kids should not be judged but if it is a fact about what team a kid plays for, where is the fault. Did you moderate when someone asked about USA kid when inquiring about Syosset. Be even handed in this and don't cave to the crybabies and carpetbaggers.

Are you joking. I am not the only moderator but I always try and protect the kids. Look up my posts. I can not review every post on here. I do my best and if you think I am picking and choosing you are 100% incorrect. I read the posts saw they were not saying anything bad about the kids and I did mention that. I also said keep the kids out of it.

Yeah, he liked to get out on the ball carrier but his coach would always tell him Sag-some-more.

I'm not sure who's posting this misguided information about JC. Could it be parents of kids not playing? Having 2 sons go through this program, I've might not have seen eye to eye with the coaching staff, but both of them did just fine. You see lacrosse is only part of your kid's future! Shouldn't education be very important. As far as the coaching staff goes they are united not divide! If anyone is to blame let it be NCAA that is allowing players (as early as 8th grade) to contact coaches therefore, verbal commitments are made. This becomes a problem for High School Coaches because those parents believe their kids should be moved up or starting. I have witnessed this first hand. You see, high school is like college in that you want to win at any cost. Are you going to deny a player who excels at football and lacrosse, the right to start because he chooses football over lacrosse? Should a player be denied a starting position because he hasn't decide early on what college is the right fit for him? Are you going to play an upper classman over a freshman who has better all around skills? [lacrosse] no people! If your kid can't handle standing on the sidelines tell him to go out and work harder! In college your not treated with kid gloves. If your kid can't take "harsh" criticism then college lacrosse is not for him! Here's a wonderful statement from a top notch, respected, D1 lacrosse coach that he gives every recruit's parents: I have an open door policy and you can come and talk to me at any time. There are only 3 things I want you to think about before you knock on my door 1-I think I know a little more about lacrosse than you do. 2- I'm going to be brutally honest with you. And 3 - I don't love your kid as much as you love your kid.
This is what your player faces in college lacrosse! If you think JC is tough then college lacrosse is not for them!
Lastly, fans are the same no matter where you! They hate the refs if they are losing and they blame the coaching staff if their team loses! 😉

The problem in Syosset is not the NCAA or the program or the coaches but the helicopter parents. When the coaches can't appreciate how great there kid is then they will do all they can to find a coach who can
Might even mean finding another new school or change the club again
Unfortunately while these parents can't grasp reality the other kids get wind of what is happening and don't respond to kindly to people who try to divide their team
A few people in denial though will not be able to ruin a strong program

Why does everyone hate early recruiting?
It is not as bad as it seems.
Keeps coaches honest-High school-
Believe me High school coaches have all the power. In most towns you can not even state opinion without it effecting your sons playing time.
Why do you think high school coaches hate early recruiting-because they loose some of that power.
If a kid is an early recruit to a top 20 team- there is a reason for if-He is a good lacrosse player.
Everyone is saying early recruiting does not help out teams- Helped BU- early recruiting got them in top 20 in third season.
What is best for players and family is have playing field as even as possible. Early recruiting is helping that.
Perennial powers now have to compete for players -how is that a bad ting?
There will always be corruption- not all high school teams play the best players- there are friends, political connects etc. If you do not belive that then you are a fool.
