Why would someone from Express A bother with True Blue.

Exactly Express Dad typical pompous jerkoff remark. Most teams can be good with a bunch of holdbacks and 2022 players on it.

Not likely you will get many constructive answers. Here is what I Have observed or heard .

Recon-fairly "new". Both teams are fairly competitive and the parents I spoke to at a tourney seemed happy.
Hitmen- Not as competitive. Fly low on the radar. Don't hear much about them either
Icon- there older teams are very competitive. The 2023's seem to be inconsistent. There was a mad exodus of kids a year or 2 ago.
Bluefish- I didn't see them at many tourneys. I don't think it is an overly competitive team.

Woukd love for others to weigh in. Not sure they will because they aren't one of the top!


Hitmen and Recon tied a couple of times this past year. I believe both teams got solid talent at tryouts and both should be improving. Coaches for both teams are returning as well. Probably comes down to which practice facility are you closer too.

Icon not enough information

Bluefish - came out of the gate with a lot of teams their first year then all the younger teams started to look elsewhere. They still have younger teams but they're not competitive and often borrow kids from other teams. This depends on the team but I know the 2023 and 2022 team did this. Nothing wrong with it just stating facts.

So I guess by now Igloo has sent out invites to all of their pre-tryout invitees Was there much turnover? Did they land the lefty attackam they were after? Will it be another year of daddy ball? Will coach Leprechaun still be forcing the offense through his kid?

Yes, a lot of kids got bumped to "B". The holdbacks stay under the cover as a 2023 grad year, and yes daddy ball remains.

What a bunch of whiney grown men!!! Let me state I am not with igloo but have watched them play against my son quite a few times and they are a well coached, very disciplined bunch of talented kids. And parents who have tons of class on the sidelines...unlike most of you on here.

by offense you mean the binder full of plays he calls? that the way lacrosse is played right with a binder of laminated plays every time down the field? Or maybe I'm just stupid and confused igloo for a football team instead of a lacrosse team.

The Icon '23 coach is Pat Mcabe, he is also the director of the Icon program. Look him up, u would b hard pressed to find a better coach around. Multiple National championships as a player and coach, US Lacrosse hall of fame, team USA .........etc.

They were looking for a righty, and from what I saw there were a bunch at tryouts. I'm sure they got one, but none were noticeably better than what they had. Definitely no difference makers. I guess we'll see.

Out of these four its Recon without a doubt, they are very competitive, well coached, and the parents are down to earth.

I'd put both Outlaw teams in this mix. I don't know if Recon has ever played Outlaws select, but I'm sure Recon A would be the better of them.

At this age I would think so. It was invite only when they started. Would be hard to start swapping out players now. So unless someone voluntarily leaves I woukd say it is a waste of time and money.

They seem carry a lot of kids on both teams, and it appears a lot of them are attack too, but the starting Attack line on A team seems to be pretty solid.......
They could prob use another lefty or size though to round them off.

Recon did cut down the # of players from last year and I think they will do the same again, need better depth at attack position.
