Any thoughts on which teams are/or will be well coached here? Any to avoid?

Getting good info from here can be tough. Here's is my advice based on my guy just finishing 2nd grade

1) if a club won't return your calls or gives you little info. Move on
2) make sure exactly what your getting is spelled out.
3) ask lots of questions (practice locations, coaches). If they don't return your call or have no answers. Move on
4) just because a plastic surgeon has the nicest office doesn't mean he's the best surgeon. You get my point
5) people may disagree but where practices are and where the parents are from makes a big deal if you both work. If the practice is in syosset, most of the parents live in cold spring harbor and you live in port Jefferson, your screwed
6) due to the fact that many clubs are popping competition is good. Don't settle

Maybe because A team vs B team at the 2026 means absolutely nothing....zero at this age. They're still learning the game at this age. If you want to argue why spend 2000 bucks on travel at this age then maybe a point can be made there.

All fair points but most of the time the A team has the better coach. At this level its all about the coaching. Not sure why you would play over 2000 bucks and not get the best coach .

Empire: Had between 30-35 kids at each of the 2 TO's for 2026. Apparently they had another 15 or so 2027 as well. Originally we were told that they would have a straight 2026 and a blended 2026/2027 with the 2026 kids that didn't make the cut playing with the blended squad. Found out tonight that idea was scrapped and they would have a "K-3 Futures" squad for the 2026 kids that didn't make the cut and any other younger kids. all told, 24 made the roster for 2026.

Mamas Boyz: Had about 30+ or so each of the 2 TO's fro both 2025 & 2026 (no idea how many were of which, but assuming its a fairly even split). Not sure what the plan is there, but rumors were that they would keep the grades together and field an "A" and "B" squad of blended 2025/2026. Last TO was tonight (8/29) so should find out next week.

as it was explained to me they decided the balance of the kids were not "tournament ready". No, they will not have a 2027 team, they will have a K-3 "Futures" program where the kids get a uniform and 10 fall practices + 20 spring/summer practices for half the price

At that age I would suggest a PAL team or town travel team. Let the kid be a kid before you enter him into this insane world of travel lax ruled/judged by the crazy parents.

It could be. All shafts and Heads are different, best thing is to just try in out first. If you have extra I would not cut a good shaft.
