Great package for the 2017 team. Saw them play at Hershey - quality team. Do they have a 2018 team?

I've seen gladiator 2017 play at several tourneys and they are a good team. It seems on and off the field.

We have played against them and they play at the highest level. Well run program with excellent coaching. Their 2017 package is excellent compared to some of the other programs. They are having open tryouts on September 29th according to their website.

Gladiators have only 2017 and 2019 teams? No 2016?

Once and for all, the 2010 Gladiator team broke up because of poor coaching not because of any other dads. I heard all the other parents say they were happy how well the boys play together but weren't getting the proper coaching. My son was on the team and everyone left because we disagreed with the head coach. I wont bash him because it isn't in my nature, but I would not recommend playing for him. That being said, my guess would be that they now need to fill all roster spots on the team.

Anyone have any idea what the 2017 Team is looking for? Have a few kids interested but they want to stay together. Any input would be appreciated.

Open tryouts on Saturday September 29th at Stonybrook University.All present 2017 Gladiators are required to try out. They are looking at kids in all positions. That is correct, this is a travel team and not PAL, thanks for pointing that out.

Are you serious? So many teams are formed by groups of kids and common coach from a town. Every organization has several teams formed this way. There are no fully open tryouts. Isn't this how Gladiators started.

Well ok, there are three kids that happen to be very good players who come from the same town who play different positions. They would like to try out for the same travel team and if they all make it play on the same team. I think its universally accepted that it is not pal, so no youre not smarter than every one else. Dont be in such a rush to be clever, cause youre not.

Exactly how they started. Most of the kids are Smithtown kids, with some Ward Melville kids in there as well. I believe the Head coach used to be the Smithtown PAL coach.

Why does a team that won 5 tournaments have open tryouts? Yes, they lost a few kids, but doesn't it make sense to replace those that were lost? It obviously wasn't just those kids that left that made them succesful. What about the rest of the team that worked hard all your? Those kids get tossed to the side after looking at some new prospects for 1-2 hours at a tryout.

The last thing any team needs is three friends who only look to pass to each other!

Whatever team they make, hopefully the coach is paying enough attention to bust-up that clique and rotate them in at different times. If he doesn't, then my advice is for the parents to point out to all three boys that their teammates will quickly recognize if they only look for each other ... and then they'll never see the ball unless it is coming from one of their buddies.

I've experienced this on another club team, and it ruined the chemistry and the team suffered as a result.

It happens to be a goalie, a pole and an attackman. I guess well have to worry about the goalie just passing to his friend on defense.........

So I guess you are assuming that your coaches are not capable of coaching three kids from the same town? The whole Gladiators team is made up of Smithtown and Ward Melville kids. If adding three kids from the same town is a concern, maybe you should look at hiring different coaches who will be able to control these ballhogs........

The 2017 Gladiators will be having tryouts on Saturday at 2 pm at Stonybrook rain or shine. Please either show up 1/2 an hour before the 2 pm tryout or pre register on the website to make it easier for everyone involved. We will have many independent evaluators to make this tryout run smoothly.
