Sunday scrimmage. August 6th. Isn't there a break. More to life than this, I think.

There should be a break! August is the boys time off. 12 months straight of any sport will lead to burnout and injuries.

That's ridiculous! The boys need time off and families need down time. Hate to say it people but there's more to life than lacrosse. Burnout is on its way.

Does this burnout mean Express will be beatable this coming fall?

Will they have the Koopers 2021 ringers? If not, Express should win fairly easily.

Unlikely - they have the deepest bench in history (daddy of kid #38).

The "Koopers 2021 ringers" are on age 2022 players that have played for Dukes since last spring. Not sure what you are implying.

38 is good. Your son will be right there for the hybrid team. That is the team that is for the the bottom half of the AA roster that returned and selected kids at tryouts. There was over 100 kids there last night to pick from. That team has a chance to be like Igloo's 2nd team.

Well considering the clubs are having tryouts already, what is the issue in playing a scrimmage as well?

So they will definitely be there because they have to be there for tryouts anyway or they don't make the team.

You obviously have no idea how Dukes works and are making yourself look silly. Dukes is not a team, it is a program. There are more kids on the roster than those that play in games and tournaments. The "tryouts' occur every month from August to May. Kids are free to come to the monthly tryout and be added to the team if they are good enough. It's not realistic for all the kids to make it each month. This doesn't mean you aren't on the team anymore. Many of the kids from last years roster have already been invited back, not just the koopers kids.

They'll be there. Again. Not sure how on age 2022 kids that have played for the team multiple times are ringers.

Select=B
Gold=nonexistent, or if they do exist D team

Yes the coaching is the same, someone's dad and PB shows up to scream at the kids as they get smoked. If you are looking for the worst set of parents and a solid B team with mediocre coaching, then you are in the right spot

Two tourneys is barely multiple times.

Non-ringers have to buy the helmets.

But every "tryout" you miss moves you farther down the depth chart - right?

Let's tally the daddy coaches nonsense so it can all stop.
Express A 2 daddy coaches
Igloo A 2 daddy coaches
Igloo B 1 daddy coach
91 2 daddy coaches
Outlaws 1 daddy coach
Lagacy 1 daddy coach
91 B 1 daddy coach
People anywhere you go on long Island there are daddy coaches get over it

Dad's coaching as an assistant is fine. And very needed. So your tally data is skewed, The issue is sometimes when the Head Coach is the daddy coach. Then that could be a potential red flag. Obviously, there are cases like the Bandits and Badgers where you gladly accept those dads. But this is club lax, where we are all spending a ton of money and time. Every team should have a Head Coach that has no ties to the team. However, sometimes those coaches do just the minimum. Whereas a daddy Head Coach will invest the time to practice, so this whole thing is maddening and every team and club is different. So practice and commitment is key, along with keeping an eye that dad doesn't favor his son.

Head Coach (and most are club directors)
Express A and B - nope (director for A)
Igloo A and B - nope (director for A)
9! A and B - nope (director for A)
Outlaws A (director)
Legeeacy A and B - nope (director for A)

Not a bad coaching line up

My son only played in 2 tournaments this summer also with them. There were only 3 that Dukes played in. There aren't any minicamps after April. Buy the helmets? What are you talking about? No one buys their own helmet.

Getting moved down the depth chart and getting moved below the travel line are two different things. Obviously showing up at a tryout helps, but they aren't going to move their best kids below the travel line. That would be silly.
