Well,......lets see. Maybe the kid has actually said he wants to go to Chaminade. Maybe his three older brothers went to Chaminade. Maybe the kids parents have told their friends in town that they are going to send their son to Chaminade.
Lord knows none of that would ever be discussed by the GC lacrosse mafia, and we all know you have one.....every town has the guys that control the programs.

I don't even live in the town and I've known who was going to Chaminade.

And you should really consider some form of anger management.


got a phone call from the HC just because there was a rumor my 8th grade son might go elsewhere...he just wanted to make sure it wasn't true...so...there may be some validity to this.

That is the most ACCURATE analogy I have ever heard.
Hysterical and TRUE!
Especially the wife comment and PureBred part.

OMG Love It

you either "Live in GC" or "Are From GC" - BIG DIFFERENCE

If you are a Half Blood (maybe your spouse was born in GC) then you get invited some events but if it is your wife - you can't be a lax coach etc. your not allowed! Now once in a while, a Muggle comes along who turns out to be a great wizard like Hermoine. In this case maybe you're from Rockville Centre, Manhassat etc. you may have played college lacrosse, maybe even at a major DI program! In that case, you might be allowed to be an assistant coach but usually only in 2nd,3rd or 4th grade (or a girl's team) because the Pureblood(Slytherins) don't want any half-bloods or muggles messing with the way GC has been doing things since the glory days of Doc. Now if your son happens to be a superstar quidditch (or lacrosse) player he will play regardless for sure but, if he is on the cusp - Draco Malfoy gets the nod 9 times out of 10 and he is usually the one who ends up in the burning room (across from the AD)at the end the end of the story and his parents have to come and take him home...I hope this helps.

Friends turning their backs on each other and all the squabbling and political maneuvering... makes me sick. Most of the oafs involved were not much to speak of in their day to boot...joke.


Why don't you get up from behind the keyboard that you are hiding behind, grab a whistle and volunteer your time like these so called oafs are doing. We are always looking for more volunteers to assist with our program. Boy, it must be a nice view from the cheap seat, huh.

Who cares? Let's get back to HS lacrosse. Enough of the GC drama. Every town has it, this week it was GC's turn to have their disgruntled residents to air out their dirty laundry on this anonymous blog. Enough already.

This is going on in almost every town at some level. Why do you think there is a whole cottage industry( club lacrosse) because dads got sick of the bs. Try having your son play attack in My town almost impossible unless you are on coaching staff.

And all high school coaches have way to much power.
They have union protecting them, and treat kids like crap.
No fear of repercussion- play favoritism, control what they say to collage coaches. Can make or break your son in so many ways.
The whole system sucks.
Now I do believe that they want to win so for the most part they play the best- but on every team there will be a certain number of players that are fairly equal- if your not connected you ride the bench the whole season like you can not play the game.

Although GC has hit the headlines, I'm quite sure that if other schools took the chance to travel like GC did, at least 50% of the programs would be busted for the same thing. This is not just a GC problem and if you don't believe it, you need to pick your head out of the sand. It's everywhere. Their arch rival town a few miles north is nearly a mirror image of GC from a demographic standpoint and in every other aspect including this issue. Just ask the boys, they know.

This is why I was happy that my son was fortunate enough to be committed prior to even playing varsity lax. He performed very well in showcases and elite club tournaments and was spared the politics as illustrated above

Sure, have you ever been to Glen's Falls? Lovely little town, undergoing a little bit of a renaseince. The old hotel in the center of town just got bought be a local and is getting spruced up. Great place to visit in summertime, near to both the track at Saratoga and to Lake George.

This is so true! The personal connections our hometown coach has with hometown parents is ridiculous. Parents and players attending his family functions. How is this a level playing field?
