Top NOVA 2020 teams and reasons to go -
Blackwolf -
Pro: commit to D1 programs consistently; best practices in the area, including opportunity to practice against HS D1-committed players

Con: Not sure about which tournaments they attend; not many games; unsure who is on roster

Madlax -

Pro: go to every tournament that they should; get lots of game experience if Capital/National; open roster process for selection

Con: Potential bait and switch on new structure of not naming to specific teams; coaching and practice levels inconsistent

VLC -

Pro: Affiliated with Crabs so may get boost from NLF exposure

Con: Inconsistent coaching; lack of game/tournament play; not enough practice time

Good analysis on all clubs. I would add a con for BW in location at St. John's if this is for the nova crowd....Trig is always very engaged though, but maybe not for multi sport athletes. I would also add a con for madlax in $ spent but you do get more for those dollars. The con on VLC's inconsistent coaching is a stinger but true....3 head coaches for 2020's last year and the 2019's lost their head coach at the start of the summer as well. 2020's will be set with DiCamillio if he in fact stays with them...big IF because he and Langley are the heart and soul of that club. Murky picture for sure but those are the only legit choices in nova for now if you even call BW a nova club anymore.

I need to see a 6 goal W over Looney's before I can be convinced of that. I think it's more like 10-8 Crush as Fogo will limit their fast breaks and overall possessions

Haven't heard that rumor. DiCo just signed on to coach VLC 2020 since the '17s are done and graduating. I suspect Langley will stay put as well.

Those 2 are great coaches and are the heart and soul of the club....they aren't going anywhere. Langley is 2018 and Dico is 2020. 2019 lost their coach early in the summer but have a legit head coach I think.

If Calvert Hall doesn't bring home a couple MIAA'ships in the next couple years, Coach Kelly may be on the hot seat.

A lot more movement between the Baltimore teams then I would've thought (crabs, fca, looneys, and Hawks)

Interestingly enough the coaches son and rarely came off field. It paid off. Talented but not a standout and about the same talent level of many other local 2020 players.

Kids are always searching for something they think is better and parents are not teaching them loyalty to teams or team mates. Does not really matter as they are getting into high school - real talent will rise no matter what elite team they are on. Grass is not always greener. Good luck to all the 2020s!

Some of the programs are better at getting kids recruited. Why would a kid not want to go to a team that is better and they'll get more looks? People also do it to better position themselves for high school lacrosse.

What happens to some of these kids when two-three years from now other kids surpass them? There is some real talent committed in the 2020 class but just as many political moves so curious what the schools do in 3 years when these kids are no longer the best and they have already committed their full 2020 allotment? On and off field UMD and UNC competing who can grabs more youngsters. Poor kids.

Every player on the list is older. Not just UNC's. And people still think that holding kids back isn't working of these kids/parents?

Please don't compare UNC to ND and Columbia...for 20 years, some employees at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill knowingly steered about 1,500 athletes toward no-show courses that never met and were not taught by any faculty members, and in which the only work required was a single research paper that received a high grade no matter the content.

Actually, the LI kids are grade appropriate, some even on the younger side for LI 2020. Talent speaks for itself- if it's there, no need to reclass. I suspect many of the holdbacks could have gotten committed if they stayed grade appropriate, but someone lacked faith in their abilities and steered them down a grade.

I'm part of the 80% and have two kids playing D1 - one at an Ivy and 1 at a top 20. Both are on age. I win. Keep playing your silly little holdback/early recruiting game. It's ruing the sport. Age based is coming....

As the parent of a younger, on age kid, I wish your remark of "age based is coming" was true - but I don't see it. I firmly believe grade based will remain.
