The DC Madlax team is one of the best in the country. Are they having tryouts? If so, go there.

Much as I hate to say it, Madlax 2019 has the makings of a great team, maybe even up to 2018 standards.

Madlax 2018 is a very good team, but there have been better teams in this area. BW 2015, VLC 2015, VLC 2017.

Relative to the competition, Madlax 2019 is probably a better team than Madlax 2018.

VLC 2015 was probably a step below Madlax 2018 and 2019. Others are at least 2 steps below. Crabs have had teams as talented as these, that's it.

LOL. That VLC 2015 team had something like 23 commits and guys like Rowlett, Lamb and O'Connor.

2019 is a deeper team than 2018. 2018 is all about the first 8 guys and then a big dropoff.

It's very hard to compare a team that graduated (VLC) to a rising junior and rising sophomore team (Madlax 2018 and 2019).
Tournaments won? Commits? Commits to Top 10 programs?

I don't know VLC, but the players you mention were HS studs. Rowlett has proven himself to be a great college player too. What tournaments did they win? Are commits to top 10 programs, mid tier or bottom 20? I am too lazy to do the reseach

Madlax 2018 has won a 6-7 top tournaments and 2019 has won more. Both teams have 5 or more players committed to Top 10 programs, with more to follow. Time will tell if those players rise to the level of a Rowlett or warm benches at Hopkins, MD Duke, UVA, UNC or the like. Personally, barring injury, I like their chances.

If not already, by the time they are done, the Madlax 2018 and 2019 teams will go down as the best teams in DMV history

VLC 2015 is one of the most talented teams that has ever turned out of this area, period - commits to top programs and all studs. Rowlett is one of the best players in the country, and was all through HS as well. Madlax 2018 has 16 commits, half of which are top programs, but it is not an apples to apples comparison to compare Madlax to BW or VLC - Madlax has commits on the team from Texas, Canada, Florida, etc. through their partner programs and such since they pull from outside of the area and from a bunch of teams. BW and VLC pull from NoVa and MD, and field one team at each grade. If you can't churn out a bunch of studs when you're pulling from a massive pool like 3D, Madlax, Sweetlax, etc. does, then you have a serious problem. Pound for pound, VLC 2015 - for the area - is the winner. Madlax 2019 has the makings of possibly being equal or better than VLC 2015 with 6 commits to top programs already (not counting the partner players from TX and such).

My 2 cents: Can you provide details to 2015 VLC tourney record and commits to Top 10 programs to back up your opinions?

When debating "best ever" DMV teams, limit Madlax to the Capital teams, not National teams. The National teams are a big benefit to players in terms of exposure, but the player pool is 10x the DMV. Capital directly competes for players with BW and VLC.

Rankings based on tourney record: 2018 Madlax,2019 Madlax (with a good shot at the top spot),2015 VLC. Rankings based on overall number of commits: 2015 VLC, 2018 Madlax, 2019 Madlax. Rankings based on commits to Top 10 schools: 2019 Madlax, 2018 Madlax, 2015 VLC.

Overall commits is a bit misleading because the Madlax teams have 2-3 years of recruiting left.

As a pa

Rankings

Ok I get that DC express is not going to post the rosters on the website. Can anyone on here confirm they have 2018,2019 teams. And if so where can we see them play this fall. I wanted to take the wait and see approach with this new club. I have younger sons so I want to be on top of my choices. So not trying to bash this new club but can someone from the inside give me a update with where this club is? Do they have full roster? Do you think they will win games this Fall? How many players did they steal from the top clubs?

I noticed they will be playing at the Fall Terrapin Classic. So is NL. That'll be a real test with the likes of LI Express, Ironhorse, Dukes and all of the other usual suspects.

This is stupid. First, nobody has an exact transcript of how these three teams (or any team) did over the course of their club career.

Second, what slice it to "top 10 schools". Are you saying that if a kid goes D1 to a school he wants to attend, it is diminished because it is not a school you deemy worthy? What garbage.

My son played for Madlax 2015 and we got housed by VLC 2015 one summer. That team was legit. I'm sure these two Madlax teams you are talking about are great too.

Let's support all the kids in our area and hope they have great HS and college careers.

Is there one DC express parent on this board if not please some one find one. I just want a first hand report of how this club looks? 30 kid rosters or 17 kid rosters? Someone throw me a bone here.

If your son doesn't play for them, why would a grown adult care who is on a different club's roster, the number of kids, etc.

Total freak.
