Yes. Save yourself some money and find a varsity kid. $25-30/hr is a reasonable rate. A D1 college kid is around $40/hr.

Thanks for the feedback! Reached out to a local school and received positive feedback.

A varsity D1 commit is around $30-35/hr. If you want them to put their phone down while they baby-sit/instruct your kid - offer them $40/hr.

I paid 25$ for an All American HS senior. (Just graduated)

One more point. I actually prefer small groups of 2-4 than one on one. The varsity player will always throw a perfect pass but that's not what your daughter will see in games. Plus it's a team sport. With 2-4 kids the girls still get personalized attention but in a more realistic environment. My 2 cents.

Can anyone give some feedback on teams/clubs at this age? We are looking to have our daughter tryout and want to get some opinions on Eastern Nassau/Western Suffolk teams/clubs. Our older boys play travel but we haven't paid much attention to clubs on the girls side yet.

Thanks in advance.

Yellow Jackets leads the pack for the girls but they're not for everybody and could send the wrong message to a young lady. Empire is very good for this age and Brookhaven Bamdits is most reasonable with lots of success

What about Lady Jesters, LI Bengals, Team Elevate? I see Recon is adding girls, coached by the Molloy coaches and players. They are supposedly very organized and do the right thing for their players and the lacrosse community.

Jester Girls have a very good program. The 2025 is coached by the director who has no kid on the team. Get a lot for the price. Includes winter training. They practice in eastern nassau.

Empire is very good in what age bracket ? Not 2025. It's more of a town team. If your daughter wants to play on a competitive team look into TG, Leg, or YJ. Leg will have a dedicated 2015 and only one team per age group. The others will have an A, B, C team.
Etc.

YJ'S have great coaches at this age.
Not sure if they will be the same next year but this year was great for us.

Empire 2025 team beat everyone except YJ A-I'd say they are a pretty good team! They don't get 100+ kids at tryouts like YJ.

Empire is a good team-but not if you live in Nassau! Convenience is a priority, especially at this age!

Also, for the record, Empire only lost to YJ A-not bad for a team
without the exposure. How many kids show up for YJ tryouts? 100+?

If this was true yes but it isn't. Daughter was there last year women running the team is a nightmare. Team is a B team

Fact checker, Empire lost to YJB at least once ( saw it myself), and felt apart completely when they played YJA. Keep in mind most LI teams only cross paths once or twice a season, so this was end of season when kids should be all warmed up. Empire is nothing more than a town team, so if you're a local and you're looking for convenience, then it's right for you.

100 kids at YJ tryouts for 2025? ...... in CR's dreams. It's certainly not the case. Empire may serve a purpose for some, but they suffer from being geographically undesirable for most Suffolk players. Only North shore, East End players are interested. There are not many big "Power House" lax towns out that way with deep youth programs, except maybe Mt. Sinai.......but those kids go play YJ, for obvious reasons

Is Spallina still coaching YJ 2025? Those girls were pretty good, went down to Maryland and beat all of the MD teams.

This is laughable. Those girls lost by one goal in the 25 min semi game. They won all 4 games against the top MD 2025 teams by multiple points each game ( M&D black, SW, HG, Hoco). Those teams were not pushovers. You can not take that away from YJ 2025A girls.
I do not think any other YJ team can say they did that at this age.
This team will win, and lose, against these same MD teams through out the years, and that's ok.

Is "Goalie Dad" still associated with YJ 20225 A? I saw last year that they called up the B goalie and recruited a new girl to play for Janelli.

His daughter choose to focus on 91. B goalie stepped up to plate and did a nice job all season.

YJ fall tourneys are not by team. CR takes whomever signs up and places them on a team. Sure, she'll group As with As when she can, but she'll also sprinkle in Bs and Cs. Really depends how many girls sign up for each tourney. Bottom line, fall tourneys have nothing to do with the team you are on.

At least last year for the younger grades, even though tryouts were in October official tryout results were not posted until after the fall tournament season (early December if I recall correctly). Fall tournaments rosters are mostly based on previous summer, although there is some mixing and matching that is done for various reasons.

Fall tournament sign ups for YJ are on the website. You should be in touch with your coach, and teammates, to see who is participating.
While this is a la carte, you should stick with the chemistry of the girls your child played with all summer. Especially in MD. Both 2025 teams have quality kids.

And for the Empire parent, stop spitting out incorrect facts. YJB beat you as well this summer.

Saw that Primetime Young Guns was listed for 2025, but don't see the team listed as a team for 2025. Thinking a lot of families are skipping and saving money and time! Would like to see our girls play Heros and MND again! Was nice going down there in summer and beating all of those MD teams! Need a rematch vs MND.

Which 2025 YJ team are you taking about ? Most YJA families
are already signed up.

the SincSports app shows all of the team registered for PYG, doesn't list YJ as a team registered for 25. The YJ24 shows up for 2024.

Can't speak for both YJ 2025 teams, but the majority of the A team is going to PYG. Don't know why it doesn't show.
