Get volunteers, yes volunteers from the big organizations teams to line and take care of fields. I am quite sure new dads would be more than eager to show they will pitch in. It may also help getting to know the parents on the oher teams. Do it at one of the state county parks. Eisenhower or Heckshire. (Does bethpage do games)

Get the vendors to pay a non refundable "site fee" to offset the refs and shirts and any permits. If the teams come they will be surrounded by customers. Maybe a nominal fee for teams of $500.

The question is what weekend. An event this big starts on a Friday night and ends late Sunday. But at least. Travel is limited and you can sleep in your own home.

With many of the schedules pretty much set when would it work. Lax fest is flooded by 91. Express will try and pull off their games. Forsbergh or jdrf start the season as great benefits but IMHO you wouldnt want it to begin the season, you want the boys to have played a few games before then and I am sure you would want at least one more tournament after it.

But the key is the seeding. Who plays whom? You still want to make the games fair and you want competitive games. You do not want express A or 91 A playing a C team to start. You meet and pair off the first games and do a tournament where the winners meet winners losers meet losers. With some idea (pyramid) which would resemble the top teams meeting each other.

Any excess cash funds the following years event...

Your talking about logistics and specifics to a tournament that has not even been planned yet. I threw out the guantlet.. I suggested this tournament as a way for LI teams to play each other. If someone wants to do it. Let them run it and worry about the details. Would be great to be a charitable tournament but the key here is that all the LI teams play each other. We can iron out the details as a group when we can actually get the tournament nailed down. I think the person running the Forsberg tournament put it out there that they would facilitate it. But now lets get Express, 91, fl$, Team LI etc. to commit. They can work out the details as a group if they want the input. Come on boys commit get together and forget past differences and play this tournament. Cant avoid each other forever. Alex M

I would like to see the Hofstra Tournament build a championship format and that would be the place to do it, I think it will be difficult for any team run tournament to pull it off and get everybody there. personally I don't care who gets it done as long as we could get it done, the head of parks in Nassau County is a lacrosse guy maybe the county could put it together for the first week in August, what a great way to end the summer. lets keep this chatter going

Happy to report that there is a new metro U13 team that can start to compete with the dominanace of 91 and Express. We lost to the Express after only 3 practices 7-4 in our first outing a few weeks back. We admire what you have done, and are looking to replicate it across the bridges. You guys all played up at the Bulldog Classic this weekend (and had a really nice BBQ setup as well !! ) We won U13. Hope to see you on the fields this spring to keep our young lads playing at your level. Regards 365

Remember this is fall lacrosse not every player is playing every tournament. So some teams are not at full strength until summer. So as far as all these "bragging rights" about winning we are not all playing yet.

Team long Island and Express Terps played today at the Hub in Syosset, good competition and great to see the boys back on the field after what has been a long month for a lot of the families. And the facility is awesome. Great to have a place this nice in the middle of Nassau County

Most class of 2018 are US Lacrosse U-13 elgible this season
Born After August 31, 1999

Looking for some help, how does an association treat an "older" member of the class of 2018 during spring '13 season??

We have 1-2 boys in this grouping at each grade. The vast majority of the roster is age appropriate for their grade. One of the boys is a late August birthday and misses the cutoff by a few days.

Notably, if they intend to attend tournaments playing by US Lacrosse rules, I assume the options are:
1-Player is placed on the 2017 team
2-The team plays in the U-15 division
3-Association get clearance from tournament director but technically is "playing down"

This has become a hot topic in my area (not a typical Lax hotbed) looking for some advice

Thanks-
Midwest Lax Dad
