Would like to hear some opinions - is it possible to be selected for Under Armour and not play Express? How many Express vs fl$ were selected for this year's team? Thanks.

It is possible to make the UA underclass team without playing for Express. Although the team is predominately made up of Express players, fl$ players (and others) also make the roster every year.

This is from the Express website re: Under Armor team. Clearly a connection with St. Anthony and Chaminade too. Sorry if this is obvious to many of you. Trying to figure out the best program for my son. He is 2018 and we plan on keeping him in a public school. We are leaning to either fl$ or Express. I know we missed the tryouts - new to the Island. Who knows if he'll be good enough for UA but it would be nice to not have below average odds of making it because of the jersey he wears.

•Sam Bonafede - 2014 Chaminade (Princeton)
•Timmy Burke - 2013 Chaminade (Dartmouth)
•Brian Dunne - 2013 Chaminde (Duke)
•Danny Fowler - 2013 Chaminade (Duke)
•Greg Galligan - 2014 St. Anthony's (Georgetown)
•Justin Guterding - 2013 Garden City (Duke)
•Nick Koshansky - 2013 St.Anthony's (Notre Dame)
•Ryan Lukacovic - 2013 Chaminade (Virginia)
•Dylan Molloy - 2013
St. Anthony's (Brown)
•Tim Muller - 2013 Chaminade (Maryland)
•Brian Pratt - 2013 Chaminade (Yale)
•Michael Strack - 2013
St. Anthony's (Navy)
•Tom Zenker - 2013 Chaminade (Duke)

my two cents is he is in 7th grade - put him in the best situation for him to become the best player he can be and the rest will take care of itself - don't worry about making one team that plays one weekend six years from now - six years ago nobody cared about UA and all that mattered was making the Empire team. The Empire Games folded and UA emerged and became huge, now Empire is back and who knows what the future brings.

fl$ does not get the caliber of players that Express does.
fl$ is the kids that cant make Express.
Go for Express. Unless your puting your kid in Chaminade then you may have a shot.

That fee doesn't include any tournaments unlike all of the other clubs, the fee is a few thousand more.

This is an ignorant comment. Over the past several years there has been a lot of movement between the two teams Some kids getting cut from fl$ going to Express and vice versa.

Speak to people on both teams and see how they feel, how their kids are developing. There are other excellent programs where your child will have a chance to develop. It is not too late to get your child on a team - call around. There are often imjuries or families move.

Remember all these teams are a business. The UnderArmour and Brine programs are designed in part rake advantage of a parents willingness to pay for college coach exposure. Pick a team that is the right fit for your child. If your child is not selected for one of the "under arnour" type teams, use the money you saved to hire a consultant (no I am not one) working directly for you and your child to gain college exposure. There are plenty of kids who are not "undr armour all americans" playing D1 lacrosse

Another ridiculous comment.
All families pay for the tournaments no matter whether it is embedded in other costs or not. The fl$ total tournament fee adds a few hundred dollars to the cost - not thousands. Obviously one needs to take travel costs and hotel meals etc into the calculation as well

Travel lacrosse is an extremely expensive proposition for any team.

Any team should be able to provide you with a total cost estimate for all their fees.

Any negative player posts, as we said earlier, will result in immediate, irrevocable expulsion from the board. With great discussion comes great responsibility.

Not enforced obviously 18468 18474 needed editing and should still be edited as the posts remain published

The poster and you owe the player an apology for allowing such a negative post to persist

The comment you are citing is from post #20215 in response to the discussion of the 2015 lacrosse names offered. Note that the conversation has been extremely upbeat across those players.

As particular players were not referenced in posts #18468 and #18474, these were not further edited. At BOTC, we enforce the Board Rules with regularity as needed. This is our one and only response on this item.

Why the thin skin from the fl$ supporters? It's ok to be critical of a program - some programs could benefit if they listen carefully to all sides. I think we all agree that its not ok to be critical of individual players by name, which thankfully I don't see anywhere here.

My son made express orange and 91 orange. Let's not be making broad stroke generalizations. Come now..... fl$ also picks their team and if anyone declines.. they don't run out and scramble to back fill. The team is the team. Those that don't want the nonsense gravitate to fl$! Goooooo fl$!
