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.


Whatever. The truth is if your daughter is really talented she will have a good chance. It's a tough team to make. Check the command and highlight rosters from last two years. It's a lot of the same girls and several of them don't play for the coaches of the UA team. People complain and complain, but sometimes talent wins out. There are a ton of evaluators at the tryouts. Different evaluators each year. And yet some of these same girls make it multiple times. These are also the same girls that will commit to the top college programs but I guess you feel like the college coaches don't know what they are doing either.

Everyone is beating a dead horse. The same evaluator, plus or minus a few will always be the evaluators until their own daughters/club players graduate. Accept and move on or like the post said earlier get off the merry go round.

Stop beating a dead horse. This area will have the same dad coach evaluators, plus or minus a few until their daughters and or club players graduate, and then the cycle will start over with the younger age groups. Either accept and move on or like the previous post said get off the merry go round. Whether players got special treatment or not because of who the evaluators and coaches are, every name on that list is a strong, athletic, fast player and well deserving, whether 8th grade, JV, bench V or V.

Most of them probably read this forum, so why not congratulate them instead.

Take a look at the UA Highlight roster. Of the 23 girls, 10 play for M&D 2020 or 2021, 6 play for SW 2020 or 2021. If your daughter is good enough M&D or SW will take her. The earlier you get her there the better as those clubs do the best job developing talent. There are always girls at he bottom of the roster that are replaceable, but once you get to high school the rosters basically lock down. At tryouts they are looking for athletes with good stick skills and high lacrosse IQ. Doesn't hurt to tryout and see.

Call up MD & SW, they are always looking for new players.

OK- Girls going into grade 9 do not need to tryout for their current club teams?
Why are SW and MD and a few others holding tryouts?
Daughters club is not having tryout for her age level - grade 9. Club is demanding payment for the next year right away which doesn't give you a chance to try out or look around at others unless you want to be late on payments?
How do the coaches fill in holes on our team if not holding tryouts?

They don't. Clubs other than M&D and SW get more holes, not fill them. In 9th grade, when girls go "tryout" for M&D and SW they have already been offered a spot and the tryout is a mere formality.

I posted this just after the Bal Comand roster was released seems like I could be the next Nostradamus!
Bal just got eaten up 18-9 by Conny. Great job Coach Mac putting your girls in a position to fail.

My next prediction as the wizard is they’ll go 1-3 in pool play picking up there lonely win against Southwest and won’t even make the playoffs.

Not sure what game you were watching, but the Balt team was terrible. Middies slow, not fast enough to transition or get back on defense. It's gonna be a long weekend watching this show.

The Conny team came out firing and never stopped, and Baltimore was shell shocked. They won 90% of the draws, and the Baltimore defense failed miserably, which left the goalies high and dry. #1 on Conny could not be stopped, and beat every defender on her for the feed inside the 8m or the drive to goal herself.
Baltimore team is stacked and will regroup. The coaching staff is too good not to change the issues for the games that count.

2-2 impressive way to back into the playoffs. Such high expectations for what should be the #1 team in the country if the coaches would of chosen more wisely. You should be so proud Ann your daughter is truly a beast couldn’t be more happier for you.
