I know everything about the game and how it works. The sign of a good coach is not only getting the ones who stand on their own and are the best on the team into decent colleges but the second and third tier players. List where all these kids are attending these elite schools. Except for Harvard which was established a few years back not many others are there. He throws away those kids like garbage and moves on to the next. 5-6 kids tops go to what you would call top elite schools. The rest fight for spots on their own at a D3 school. More than 60% if they are still playing are at D3 schools. If the didnt play for fl$ or EXPRESS Orange they are on their own. How many are going to Harvard next year ?? Or any other top tier team ? Not counting those who are taking a detour either which is becoming the norm at GC

Spoken like a true disgruntled parent who thought that their kid was entitled to a lacrosse scholarship of some sort because they live and played on a GC team. Nothing wrong with playing D2 or D3. Not everyone has D1 talent and lets all face it, after four years of college no one is making a career out of lacrosse unless they go into the teaching profession and coach at a MS or HS.

so you are saying every grade has the same types of kids...are you kidding me..who wins year in and year out in any sport...every team has up/down..this i guess was a down year or two for this team/town...Stop being jealous you could not afford to live in that town because you were a screw up in college and couldnt get a decent enough job to help your kids grow up in such a great school system...truth hurts huh?

Do you know that some of the best academic schools are D3. Colleges especially the top D1 and even D3 schools don't take the 2nd and 3rd tier players. A coach can only do so much. Do you know that the coach does what he can to place players. It's up to the players to have the grades and skill to get into the elite school. Is he supposed to do their homework and make them do wallball. No that's your job. So now because your kid isn't good enough or you think he is good but no schools take him it's the coaches fault. You again are a coaches nightmare. Just because you are from Garden City doesn't automatically guarantee your kid is going to a top D1 school.

As the game grows like wildfire across the country, and the number of HS players increases, the number of players from GC going to elite schools will naturally decrease. The best players from schools in Florida, Texas, Ohio, etc. are now better than the 5th or 6th best player from GC. Same goes for all the other programs that used to send their entire starting lineups to name college programs.

this topic has come so far off of the wheels. lets all agree that there is a shared responsibility for these actions on part of the players, parents and coaches.

parents place their children in the trust of the school and coaches. The coaches are obligated to provide and maintain a safe, protected and supervised environment for the welfare of these kids while in their care. otherwise schools should insist that parents attend and care for their own children while at such events.

the parents are not excused from their responsibility but count upon the coaches and school to provide as stated above in their stead while the children are in their care.

the students are immature for displaying such poor judgment.

ultimately, at the time of the infraction; the coach and staff are responsible for not preventing this from occurring.

you teach your kids not to play with matches but they burn down the house while the babysitter is on the phone instead of watching the kids as hired to do... who is at fault?

looks like someone didn't get their kid onto the club team of their choice...so angry...you make me laugh.


for the record; our son's club team coach had his entire first line committed to D1 programs by end of 10th grade; some as early as 9th.

No BJ's needed. just great coaching

You do your best to find a home for all not the few that make you look good. Agreed there are many really good D3 schools but that is not how GC parents think. They all go into it thinking D1 FULL RIDE. Will do anything to get there kid on field not knowing there is so much more to it than just getting them on the field. Off the field in most cases is more important except those few rare kids

Kids were missing from team dinner? No one went to look for them. Because they missed team dinner which I am assuming was mandatory would he have sat them out of game or at least for a half. Probably not.

They weren't missing that's wrong they weren't even caught red handed not one thing on this website is true they were interrogated after the ad smelt it. They got caught just before team was loading the bus

Looks as a moderator we can see who is posting. Your the same person posting all the negative stuff. How is the coach to blame for the kids smoking pot. He didn't force them, he didn't buy it. He in no way condoned it. What the [lacrosse] are you smoking. They were missing after they got caught. They got caught at 4pm.

Honestly, if you're a moderator you should be keeping your opinion out of the discussion. A "moderator" should be a neutral party with no say, just an observer. Perhaps you are too close to the situation and you should recuse yourself? You certainly shouldn't be insulting a kid, your last line above was completely unnecessary.

Really the moderator in my opinion should say whatever he wants. Its an opinion and he does protect many people/kids. He tells the truth. Not like you people listening to hearsay from disgruntled parents. Stay off this site if you dont like it..Your opinions suck if you ask me. Go yell at ur kid now for not doing 25 minutes of wall ball. How about getting your kid a tutor and getting him into a school on his own merits..lol

This is a jab at an [lacrosse]. This person has posted numerous negative posts about coach even AD. They might not even have a kid on the team. Because they post anonymously no one knows. I am a moderator and if you see my posts I post facts. Just sending a message and giving them a bit of their own medicine. I have an opinion and will back it with facts. I can be contacted if anyone wants to email me. If you can determine who their kid is by my post and who they are, please please tell me where Jimmy Hoffa is, because that would be some feat. Yet I will remove that part of my post.

Whoa, a mind reader!! Hey can you tell me who is going to win the World Series and SB?? How in the world can you assume what a GC parent thinks? C'mon knock it off already. You all look like petty people.

Parents from GC are probably the most unlikely to believe the whole "D1 FULL RIDE" thing, considering so many of them grew up playing lacrosse themselves, probably moreso than any other town on Long Island.
