I assume they are paying the coaches hotel rooms and maybe some travel fees when playing out of town. That's a cost you don't have when playing on the island.


Good strategy, maybe the want all their kids to delay committing to other teams if they tryout by Express holding their tryouts after all the other major teams are done. That would put a wrinkle in other teams locking down their rosters until mid October...


You don't delay committing. You either commit or they move on to another kid. Why you try out for ta team and not commit if you made the one you want??? Almost a definate express tryouts will the same weekend as the others or earlier.

Express tryouts posted - $100 for two two hour session is how I read it. Really? So 91 is $55 and express is $100 - at least igloo give you 4 sessions for $100. Taking a quick survey - which is worth it express or 91 or any of the others? Really - $100 tryout? What am I buying for $100 - $200 more and I can send my son to anyon great camp and get more focus and skill training. Really $100 to tryout format team which is not really a tryout since they will take almost all decent players and have
4 teams - why turn away money.

DON'T GO TO THE TRYOUT. Obviously this program is not for you. Stop whining, you are not going to get Barak's ear on this.

Read the fine print for 91 you only need to go to one but if you want to go to both you may sign up again which means pay again

Good thinking, chose your club based on the cost of the tryout...if your son makes a team you will be paying $3-$4,000 for a year of lacrosse. That will be a complete waste of money if you have a bad coach and it will be money well spent if you have a good dedicated coach...regardless the $50 extra dollars you spent wont much matter. This may sound absolutely crazy but perhaps the clubs are charging more than last year b/c the fields cost more, insurance costs more, they are getting independent evaluators etc. Perhaps some clubs genuinely feel that a mutltiple day tryout allows the kids to get more comfortable and gives the evaluators a better look at the kids.

Well said. If it's such a bad deal why is it every year the Express tryouts draw the most kids.

When you register for the tryout it doesnt give a choice of day I am sure that both days are included in the $100. Not to mention the fee is what the fee is you either want your child to play Express or you don't.

Express listed 5summer tournaments for 4th grade up. What will the tournament situation be for 3rd grade in 2013? Will there be 5 also or will they be doing like 91 2nd grade and have a reduced tuition for the younger kids?

I have a 3rd grade son that is a decent laxer...I have spent some time looking at the options...as best I can tell all of the programs cost about the same, some are all-inclusive and some are a la carte. Look what Igloo is offering for 3-4 graders...fall league play and practice, winter league play and practice, spring league play and pratice plus summer practice and 5 tournaments plus a great package of gear. Igloo even lays out the cost per item...take that information and compare it to what you get elsewhere. dont be fooled by cheaper programs chances are they arent offering off-season training, or league play is additional etc.

How does the Town of Oyster Bay let the fields be used for free in this economic environment ?
The town of oyster bay gets a bond downgrade and one of the reasons was because of declining revenue.
Charge for the fields. This will add some revenue.
All the club teams should be paying for the fields.
It seems Express has the Massapequa fields locked up. Why is that?
Do they have any of the other Town of Oyster Bay fields for tryouts?
