I thought you had to show up to both nights of UA tryouts to make the team. What a joke! That team was picked and influenced way before tryouts started. The kids even heard someone (adult) say it at all star game. Same old lacrosse BS

-----------------------------

Unfortunately, the 1st night of UA Tryouts conflicted with both the Nassau County and Suffolk County Lacrosse Awards dinner events. If you look at the Highlight Roster you will see at least 2 All-Americans as well as All-County (mostly 2X all-county) for most other public school kids on the team. As leaders on their respective teams it was important for them to be at these events.

So do you think all of these kids (who are likely the best kids on LI) not be eligible due to the conflict?

Really?

Good players yes, but the whole thing is an absolute farce.

UA has sold out. Gone the way of the brine events national AA regionals. No legitamacy. What a shame, was once the premier event. Corrigan sports, really..almost half the kids on the 17/18 team are from two towns. No one else knows how to play lacrosse on LI ? hoping for better outcome in tourney then years prior for LI.

Yes, it's called accountability. You can't post specific rules to the tryout and not follow it. Conflicts happen all the time for various reasons. Choices have consequences, no matter how noble or legitimate they may be.

So thats fair to the kids that went both nights? Sorry, if you want to make a team and the tryouts are both nights, you should have to go both nights like everyone else. It actually doesnt matter in this case because this team was picked before the tryouts even started so this is a moot conversation.

Really - my son had to make a choice based on the rules as presented on the website. He was Honorable Mention All County. He chose the UA tryout and on Thursday, he was saying what a joke it was since there were a bunch of other All County players there for Thursday only.....and then made the team. It's a rule - but only for some!

The main page for UA says "Players selected to the 22 player roster must have registered and checked in on the first day of the tryout. No exceptions." And then if you do some searching (and call the organizers who tell you where to look buried in the FAQs) you find " Player must submit and official letter documenting excuse for missing to lacrosse@corrigansports.com at least one week before tryout. All requests will be reviewed and Player may be granted special permission and instruction to check in on day two of the tryout." So there no exceptions except for the exceptions. Or you can parse words and "check in" to get your pinnie and then head to the All County Dinner with plenty of time to spare.

It all plays out in the end. The kids who were "all stars" because daddy controlled it are the ones that get to college and either don't play, quit, get kicked off teams and out of schools or transfer to a lower level schools. I've seen it over and over

There are players on the list that didn't even show up for the tryouts.

I had gone back a forth on this issue a few times for other events. IMHO The boys who attended the County dinner have a pass for the first night but then you show up the second night, as some did.

You don't show you don't make it. The organization should have put a disclaimer in for those boys, instead it said you need to be registered and checked in the first night. I guess it never said in person.

Every kid who made the UA LI Team - Highlight Roster is a D1 verbal Committed player.

JHU - 5 kids
Maryland - 2 kids
Cornell - 2 kids
Michigan - 2 kids
Lehigh - 2 kids
Loyola - 2 kids
PSU - 1 kid
SBU - 1 kid
Duke - 1 kid
UNC - 1 kid
Villanova - 1 kid
Yale - 1 kid
Harvard - 1 kid

The public school kids include 2 All-Americans and virtually all other kids are all county for one or two years.

A bunch of the best D! college coaches and panels of HS coaches in Nassau and Suffolk think highly of these kids independent from UA Evaluators.

it is unfortunate that UA tryouts were on same day as the county awards dinners... this was not the fault of these kids.
