No. It happens at every club. And some kids just leave on their own for different reasons.

Express does not cut kids. If true they may have left for another team or put on another Express team.

Those kids were "replaced" by holdbacks. So much for loyalty. It was already known apparently by the "inner circle" what was going to happen before tryouts, and at tryouts it became even more obvious when you saw these kids that stood a full head taller than most of these other kids in that graduating year. Pathetic

As for now, it's a developing team and don't anticipate much. There will be cuts next year and will continue to bring in kids in clusters from our coaches, whomever they may be at that time.


I like this. "Whomever they may be at the time" Since Igloo has a revolving door with the coaches This is the first truthful thing Ive seen come out of Igloo

Come over to Tornados because Igloo's 2nd team has to pay the same price for less quality tournaments, and the turnover will be huge.

Before you start believing what an anonymous poster might say to you, ask the club directly.

My son is playing on the 2025 team and I have to say I really like what I saw. Coaches were cool. Seemed to be talent at all levels. Most important my son is happy so I am happy.

Stop. Those kids cut from Express saw little playing time last year. Some of them for 2 years. Coach gave them a shot but they were behind. They were 3rd string and those are the kids that get cut. Nice kids but it wasn't a surprise they were cut. Maybe only their Dads were surprised. They didn't land on a competitive team so that tells you what you need to know. It's not harsh it's reality.

LY wasn't there 28 kids on the roster? It's impossible for any kid to get decent playing time when you are playing 40 minute games in a tournament.

When Recon decides to enter an A bracket then they will see TB. They enter B Brackets because the coach knows that they are a B team. If they got that much better this year then enter A brackets. This is a joke until then.

Stop the press! The Simon Cowell of youth lacrosse has deemed a bunch of 11, 12 year old kids playing lax not good enough. I wonder what will happen to them now that they were not able to make a competitive team at 11. We should do a trading places style experiment to see how they will turn out. Will they turn to crime and whatever else to survive the rough streets of Long Island or will they work hard and find a way to take the (MC who by the way looks like one of the duke brothers) down.

This is so laughable. Have some of you ever heard about this great equalizer call puberty. It's coming and up will be down and down will be sideways. Good luck to all and I hope you can hold Nike and the D1 offers from poring in for your 6th grader.

I'm assuming this is just someone trying to stir the pot. Otherwise I didn't realize true blue played a brackets

No. Express 1 (Honey Badgers to some) had 21 kids. But AJ didn't play kids equally, like most A teams. So the 5th and 6th attackman and the 6th and 7th middy and the 5th and 6th defender didn't play a lot. This isn't specific to Express. But if by the end of the year your kid isn't playing a lot there's a risk he will be replaced by the next shinny toy at tryouts.
