They have a bunch of kids who have birthdays prior to Sept 2004. Their best Mid is a July 04 birthday. 2 of the city kids are early Sept '04. That's the only way Channy knows how to beat teams.

Is it any different than S2S ? I'm sure Bandits are doing it. That leaves the coachless Igloo

The 9/1 is the age cutoff for US Lacrosse sanctioned events. Doesn't seem like it is going to have a huge impact on 90% of organized lacrosse activities.
When you say HB is bringing in holdbacks, are they going into 6th grade? Until tournaments and clubs align on age based structure, grade based is going to rule......and all the issues that come with it. So like it or not but as long as it isn't a kid going into 7th grade, they aren't cheating

It's amazing the guy is such an obvious AH and yet desperate parents bring their
kids to Express tryouts. Seriously, I don't get it. Why subjest your kid to playing on a 3rd line, or be the 2nd FOGO or play for the B team when your kid can play 100% of the time on an AA team at one of the other otganizations like Outlaws, Legicy, Empire.

Legacy beat Igloo. Cutoff was May 2 so Legacy brought some older kids. The World Series realized it was a gray area so they are making it legit and using September 1 this year. So Express, 91, and a few other teams will have to show up with half their teams.....and obviously not their better half!

Is Icon going to have a team at the grade level? Rumor is all the kids from last year are bailing.

This is a critical year for the 6th graders. Parents should be very very
Much aware that it's extremely important they land their
kids with an organizations TOP team where he will play his fair share. Winning tournaments/tee-shirts is not what this about. In a year or two,
College Coaches could care less about scores of games, what club you play for or the jersey you wear. They will sit on the sidelines and watch the
Kids who are playing on the field. Find a team with stability with coaches who
are committed to making your kids better. Those tryouts are where you should be.

Tryouts and what parents should be doing:

Ninety One - Bandits
PROS: are the best but will always look to find the one or two players who have improved so much that they are better than existing kids. They will dominate again because of JS ability to coach winning team.

CONS: He will carry a small roster so he can run with his best Kids most of the game. You know in advance what you get with this team - if your good, you'll play, if not, you'll sit. Not many open spots to steal so crazy that parents would try.

OPINION: Avoid!


Badgers -
PROS: probably the most athletic team with some depth. Fairly solid at each position. They should do well but other teams are clearly closing the gap. Alot of depth at midfield With 2 very good goalies.

CONS: team is self imploding. They had trouble this year moving to the next level of play even though they had the goods to do so. Parents control the coach's decisions which is a recipe for disaster. Alot of coaching "favors" on the team that hmders their ability to play the right kids. Still very unstable situation that sill take
Another disappointing year to fix.

OPINION:Avoid!


Igloo:
PROS: 1st team to beat the Bandits. Great accomlishment. Solid team
Made up of a bunch of hand picked Manhassett 32 players from Daddy coaches. They proved this past year that they can compete and will again this year.

CONS: turmoil with coaching. Head coach leaves after providing a solid
Season. 2nd time AA has made that change at the top which doesn't allow the team to get settled. Will they change it up every year?? I would caution going to this team this year because of the uncertaintybof too many variables.

OPINION: Go check out tryouts

Out-laws:
PROS: MB is doing a great job rebuilding this organization and team. New coach with a winning experience and record. Some good players. They will find ways to have goodntournament showings.

CONS: you nust never know what you will get with this team mostly because
Of the constant changes at the helm. Rebuilding year. Will have mostly disappointing runs at the better clubs.

OPINION: checkout tryous

Legacy:
PROS: up and coming organozation and team. Recently won world series which showed alot of naysayers that they are for real. Very solid group of core kids with some obvious holes. Consistent head coaching and new coach coming in with a winning record should provide an immediate lift to the next level. Tremendous opportunity for kids who want and should be playing in the first 10 spots.

CONS: depth at various positions. Need to show they can compete.

OPINION: Go to Tryouts


S2S
PROS: DK has done a great job with what he has to deal with. Had an impressive year with some talented North Shore kids. They will be competitive again this year.

CONS: not 100% sure of their model. Mostly local Manhassett kids so the pool isn't their to continually feed the A team. Hand picked additions. No real tryouts. Not too sure that model can sustain itself very long. Not a place
If you want exposure.

OPINION: Hand picked
