Thanks for starting the 2024 thread. Picking up where the other poster started on the general thread that BL2024 promises their parents Championships I have to say that was never brought up.

We left another club and tried out for BL this past season. My son is not by an means close to the top boys on this team but I can tell you what the experience has been thus far.

Positives:
1. Excellent coaching. Especially the box training really made a difference over the winter kid loved it.
2. My sense was I would pay less money as they mention with their a la carte approach and I have.
3. The team has 3-4 players that are outstanding 5th grade lacrosse players and then a lot of "good" players. Better kids help my sons development. Our previous club didn't really have any top notch players. It gives him a goal.

On the negative side:
1. There are boys on this team that are AA caliber players and there are boys that are struggling to consistently catch and throw.
2. I think they could practice a bit more and consistently.

All said and done very happy with the switch and looking forward to the Tournament season.

Does anyone know if the Dukes Nationals 2024 team is any good? Were they able to attract some talent, did they get quality players from LI and MD? Seems crazy to me to go from the two biggest hotbeds of lacrosse to the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania. What tournament are they playing?

Dukes 2024 has some very good talent. No weak links , certainly not the caliber of taz or Wolfpack as a team but some very strong players But this team is brand new. Played 1 tourney together, They played up in binghampton in a 5/6 tourney a few weeks ago and held their own against some good 6th grader teams. They have multiple kids from Maryland, Virginia, Carolina, New [lacrosse] etc. this team is not intended to be your primary team, The tournaments are set up around the primary travel period, not to conflict. Mini camps are awesome and getting better and better as more kids show up. The mini camps are set up on college campuses where the team watches the game then practices on the college turf. The coaching is phenomenal. Even if you have no interest in playing, 60 dollars for a very intense 3 hours is well worth it. Upcoming tourneys is shamrock 3/19 on Long island

Probably, especially since Wolfpack is playing up.

Everybody was missing players last weekend. Madlax was probably missing some too. Most of the DC area was on Spring Break. No shame in losing to Madlax. I think Taz has lost to them like 7 straight.

No shame at all we have lost to them three times now by 1 goal each game. We will get over the hump. Our coach told us that their coach asked to move the game up in time as families were "leaving" for break in the afternoon but that they had their full team.

I saw the tournament schedule before and after it was changed. BL vs Madlax was always at 12pm - The time for this game never changed.

I love how this 2024 team has endless number of excuses. Just face it... you'll never get over the hump. You are not a top 5 team in this age group! Wolfpack, Taz, Madlax, BLC, and Hawks are all better than this team.

No excuses my friend. My son told me heard the HC for Madlax actually say to the coaches at BL, "you were missing some guys" and the BL HC Coach responded, "No excuses"
You are just jealous that a small club like BL is beating your team like a drum.

Who has BL beaten "like a drum"? Has BL ever beaten one of the top 5?
