Go tryout. No team will turn down a top player

That’s neither here nor there. There are also 8th graders who made the team, girls from a varsity team that doesn’t hold tryouts, and girls who ride the bench on their varsity teams throughout the season.


Being on varsity is meaningless. Many varsity teams would lose to the top jv programs and fresh soph teams


That is probably the dumbest statement posted today. Congrats you win the internet!

Yes they did leave money on the table without a doubt especially some game 23s that are better then the bottom 3-4 22s that made it. This is still a good line up though and will do fine in the tournament and let’s be honest this is supposed to be a recruiting tournament and college coaches don’t want to see 23s yet. Probably a good idea to not even allow them to participate except for the $$ they would be turning away.

The Highlight head coach didn't put a single player from his school on the team.

The NDP girls that made the command team play for M&D and SW. If they didn't play well at the tryout they wouldn't be on the team. UA really is based on how the girls do in those 4 or 5 hours. They don't take into account where they play or whether they are on JV or Varsity because that can differ based on where they go to school.

All I've seen is complaining based on where kids go to school and not arguing that the girls that made the team didn't play well on Sunday. I'm guessing that they played well.

As is the JV player who made it, and many others who play JV. People need to stop knocking JV.

Congratulations to all of those who made the team. Baltimore will be very hard to beat.

Roster is out.

You say the coaches didn't force their own player onto the team. Then explain why there are 5 NDP girls and the HC of the Command team is from NDP. NDP has the most players from any school.


NDP varsity finished third in regular season and didn't make the playoff final four. NDP JV took multiple losses in the regular season. But NDP has the most girls on the UA team. Okkkaaaayyyyy.....

You should read the player bios. Four out of the five NDP girls who made the Command roster played varsity this year.

Do those 5 girls play for top club teams?

There is no stronger league than the IAAM A. It’s likely “Sour grapes “ is from a lesser league

He and the other 2 assistant coaches are at the tryouts and are involved in making the final roster.

It’s not really sour grapes.
Nothing lacrosse related in this mid atlantic region will ever be decided based solely on merit. When you have evaluators who have their own kids/club players/high school players on the field, you will never get a a fair outcome. Everyone knows it, everyone complains about it, everyone comes on here and cries about it, and then a week later everyone stops whining and moves on to the next unfair tryout, where the cycle starts all over again. The same dad/coach/evaluator(s) will be at every event So if you are really that upset about it, get off the merry-go-round.

Daddy/Coach evaluators is what it is...it's not going to change unless you get a director at Corrigan Sports that gets independent evaluators for this process.

If you can’t have your kids in the IAAM schools for whatever reason, get them on a good club and make it work. We have a girl from frederick on our Baltimore team. She carpools with another family. Not everyone on the team is private school. You just have to play the best to get better.
