Funny, my son plays on a rising 3rd grade travel team that has the sickest defender in the entire world...he trains with the Hofstra squad...he is trained to not care about the offense's stick skills as he generally just lays them out...look forward to seeing your guy on the field.

Unfortunately for 91 the amazing 3rd grader has a verbal commit to Chaminade and then Virginia so he is in process of saying good-bye to 91 and is coming to Express !!!!!!

That kid will definitely be knocked out of a game soon if he keeps up the between-the-legs and behind-the-back shooting, during 10 goal blowouts!! One big defenseman will put an end to it all, and his father (JS), should understand why, when it happens. Poor kid is being set up for it, by his crazy, egotistical dad...

Held back several times?

FYI
9 years old
If your kid was trained the way he has been and performed the stunts he has accomplished then you wouldn't be on here bashing his talent.

Knock off the hating .

91 5th grade B team is on the board!!! Pretty sure that kid has gotten hit once or twice having seen him play he is exceptional against kids way older. His dad is coach of an MLL team think hes trained the right way .

Skull and bones is well run. The facility at the Greenvale school is terrific. A tournament worth doing. Competition is good at all grade levels with a mix of town and club teams.

Turf Island's teams were combined grades last year. They are trying to do single year teams this year.
The turnout for their tryouts last weekend was poor.

Really I was there for the 3-6 grade try-outs and they had over 100 kids there. The 4 grade team (2021) is going to be sick . I know there only in 4th grade but they are going to be very good in that age group lots of RVC and Franklin Square kids. So not sure which day you were at but I thought they had a great turn out and did not even promote it.

So over 100 kids for grades 3-6 is a great turnout?
Even if you generously say 120, that's 30 kids per grade.
Ok we get it, you really want people to know the 2021 team is good.
But I wonder, is it possible to see through the blindness of living through your son to realize that around 30 kids per grade is not a "great turnout".
Maybe ask a friend with a college deree to explain this to you.
But that's right, your son is on a good 4th grade lacrosse team. So your life's fulfilled.

Yeah, your right. Let me go run to the 4th grade Express tryout tonight. Probably 60-80 kids even though 90% of the roster is set. Two dads coaching team with over half of the team friends of their sons. Kids never leave the field.

But my life will be fulfilled because my son plays for Express and I can write a check for $2400.

Not an Oiler- but the 3rd/ 4th gr team last year was very good- those kids will only get better. I think they are trying to keep them together. The coach is a good guy too... but I think the younger half of the team- now 4th graders are actually some of the stronger players at their age. They faired pretty well against full 4th grade teams last year. I m sure they will be able to give others a run for their money.

Brought my son down to the Igloo Tryouts this last Sunday night. I was extremely impressed. The kids were extremely talented, but what impressed me the most is each player had 30 to 40 offensive touches, and 30 - 40 defensive touches. So many reps. They also had 1 evaluator to every 8 kids. It just seemed like they did everything they said they were going to do to make the tryouts fair. Just was really impressed that a smaller organization seems to be doing it right.

Thanks for the self promoting post.
Don't you realize when you write something in this manner, that it is so blatantly obvious that it is the director of this group.
I know your an upstate guy, but Long Island people can see through this nonsense.

True Blue is certainly not the "team to beat" at 2021. They are forming a team for the first time and had some very good players at their tryout. I would think the lacrosse world will hope that this group is successful. They obviously are not in it for profit at the reasonable prices they at asking for. And for under four figures, they are providing a helmet, not a "discount" like 91. This year they have brothers from two great lacrosse families on their staff, who will teach the kids properly.

I guess that makes it even more impressive that they were able to beat so many teams as they played up. Again not my sons' team, but certainly thought they were very good. Some of the players have older brothers and family members that are top in their division and their families have been in lax world for a long time. They know what they are doing and the facility parking lot and road is the least of their worries. Do not show your snobby side... it is in poor taste.

If its "not my sons team", why in the world would you know so much about the team?
It's either your son's team, or you need to get a life.

I completely agree. The dude is as arrogant as you get. They paid big bucks for the coach on the combo 2020/2021 team last year, because an old Farmingdale buddy of his has a good 2021 player. That was a smart move orchestrated by that kids dad, as Deto is great.

But this year they tried to do single year teams - Good luck with that.

At least McCabe was an excellent player, but most excellent players have some humility.

Have one conversation with the owner (DB), and the arrogance will smack you in the face.

I guess the "great turnout" that Turf Island had at their tryout wasn't that great. They are combining the 5th and 6th graders to make one team. Even the groups that are just starting out are having single grade teams.
Are the 3rd grade "All Americans" being combined with the 4th grade?
