I was asking about a different program, but I agree about fl$.

Last year they didn't have a 2019 team. Were these GC kids you like to talk about on the 2018/2019 team last year? They can have one decent 2019 team this year without the GC kids.


Don't know about the 2018 or 2019, but my son was on the 2017 team and, while not Turtles-level, was quite respectable. By my count, there are at least 10 DI commitments and 6 top-20 DIII (may have missed one or two in the past few months). That leaves five (or so) kids that (at this point) are uncommitted out of 21. The average SAT for the schools which these kids are committed to is just over 1350 (on a two-test basis): 94th percentile.


And the 2018 team is very solid as well. they compete with any of the A teams on LI.


The 2018 team is ok. Compete with any of the A teams on LI? What is your definition of compete?

Compete- play competitive games!! That is what they did and will continue to do. 2018 is about recruiting and you need to play good teams in competitive games. That's it!!

Why would you enjoy seeing the organization flounder? Is it because it hurts the kids? Seriously?? Get a hobby dude! You are a real loser.

Ivies are not full and even if they are it means nothing since this class hasn't taken an SAT yet. You will see all the de commuting happening and many spots will open up for the elite student athletes.

What's with D1 commits. Is that what you base an organization on. That's sad. How about an organization developing kids so that they get into a good college regardless of what division they are in. Plus why give a verbal when your in 10th grade? Oh so you the parent can tell your friends that your kid gave a verbal. Get a life.

Ok, I guess having multiple D1 commits on one team only means you have multiple kids that have shown they are among the best kids in their respective grade. If yours is turning down those D1 offers in hopes of something better, more power to him. Either way, your envy shines through...

Yes, It is that simple, the most competitive programs have the most D1 Commits. If you are a decent high school player from Long Island or Maryland, you can get picked up by a D3 with good grades and no club team. You don't need an outrageously expensive, sub-par program to help 'develop your kid'

Well, I would think you give a verbal in 10th grade because that is what you want. Many kids know what they want to do, if the school offers their major, is desirable and has a lacrosse program they are comfortable with, why not.
