True Philadelphians know that cheese steaks are for tourists, the real deal are the roast pork from DaNics or John roast pork!

Another philly club just announced. Team 11 Joey Sankey. How many teams can they fit in that small area? Must be 20+ They have the kids to field 4-5 AA Teams at every year just not 20. Everyone trying to make a living with youth lacrosse. Hats off to the true non profits still out there. It use to be guys like Sankey would come coach for a top club. Not anymore. All want to do it themselves. Should be called Team 21

It brings economies of scale to both entities on the business side. Both are pretty pricey programs and at the youth level 8th grade on down Mesa struggles to compete at the national elite level. The Mesa high school teams are excellent.

the youth is really bad outside of their one national 2022 team. HS is not great. They don't play the top competition anymore. This passport alliance they run does not have very strong teams in it at all. Rumor is Dukes youth is done, complete mess between owners.

The 2022 Dukes "national" team is not even kids that play for Dukes. It is kids from other clubs that had a free weekend or two to play a tournament together. Right?

At the high school level Mesa and NXT has surpassed Dukes. Dukes will die a slow death as their youth teams are really bad. Rumor of mess between owners is true.

Rising Sons just announced two 2020's who committed. One to Hopkins and one to Penn State. I believe the 2020's are moving on to NXT for high school. NXT will dominate the philadelphia region soon.

I don't think they folded they are moving over under NXT Control. Website says tryouts are for 2026 thru 2021. Feeder program i'm assuming for NXT based on the chatter

Really? They just played Team91 and lost 5-3 and Madlax they lost 6-7 and those 2 teams are easily top 3 in the country at 2024 a bit more to them than just 1 middie

Funny, NXT has younger teams too, why do they need a feeder program. And, why would anyone want to try out for a 2021 team that is folding in a year? Seems odd to me. Also, NXT has a current 2020 team, so if the Rising Sons are all moving over there, what is happening to their current team? My guess is some current NXT players will make the team, some current Rising Sons will make the team and maybe even some other kids will make the team. Leaving lots of players on those teams also looking for a home. Seems really strange to me that the Rising Sons are folding because, according to some on this website, they are the "best" out there, why would they fold and leave a portion of the team high and dry?!?

Open Tryout at HS level for NXT however most Sons i'd assume will make it. Every club has tryouts every year. NXT is no different other than the fact that if you make the 9th grade team you never tryout again. I see the benefit of Rising Sons continue to train and develop kids to prepare them for HS. Not sure if its similar to the old Dukes HHH arrangement or not?

RS would feed NXT for the following reasons:
1. Lack of coaching resources for high school
2. NXT showcases are a big draw and RS probably promoting recruiting connection
Interstingly enough that team as a whole left RS for another club when they got caught cheating with over grade kids in the NXT League at Conshocken.

The real question is why NXT would partner up with RS fully knowing that RS leadership was cheating in their own NXT League. Once a cheat always a cheat and it doesn't get anymore blatant than having kids that are ineligible play on a team, that ironically nobody was going to beat them anyone. The rest of the RS teams from 2025 - 2022 are average to poor. They had a nice run for a couple of years but believe they are on the decline, they needed a lifeline.
