1. Uprising 2025
2. Freedom 2025

Rest are comparable and parity is the norm thus hard to rank.

No one cares about 2025. It means nothing now since you are since you are 6 to 7 years away. Find the best Development program and forget about wins and losses.

Tryout was good, coaching staff that was there was off the charts. No Dad's that sell insurance acting like they are up to date on coaching lacrosse. Based on the talent level there the team should be solid...

Not PP, that's what the question is about - who has the best program for developing players. Got it, you don't care unless it's a HS senior but a 6th grade parent cares.

Agree with this statement. There were a couple of dad's on the field but they were ball boys, as they should be. I think the team will be solid but not great but with the coaching staff that was there I don't see how it doesn't become great. My guess is word will get out and attract others. Somewhat skeptical about how these coaches were retained by BL but definitely off the charts in name and caliber. AM is worth the cost just himself. There is no coach in the country better than him at developing a young offensive player.

Team 302 in Delaware is terrific, just across the state line. My son has played there for several years now and loves it. Equal playing time, no depth charts, no unknown surprise players showing up, not worried about winning tournaments – even though they do win tournaments from time to time. Their goal is to make you better so that you succeed in your home league/school team. The 2 main guys have been doing this for 12 years and both played for the Wings for years, with one of them also on the Team USA indoor lacrosse team who were World Champions. Individual team coaches are all current/former Division 1, 2, or 3 college players, including one from last year’s Yale team and 1 from last year’s Merrimack team – who both won their respective Division 1 and 2 titles. The 2 main guys are both teachers who know who effectively and appropriately communicate with kids. The 2 main guys rotate amongst the different age groups at tournaments and thus coach about half your son's games with the individual team coaches. The focus at this age is development. As you get older, they then also focus on college recruitment, if that's what you want to do. I believe that last year 18 of their 23 high school kids went on to play in college.

Was that cut and paste from 302 brochure?

Yes. Although the coach of Mad Dog 2025 is a lunatic and needs somebody to remind him he's coaching 10-11 year old children. . .

Correct, Philly Special is 2025 HHH, minus a player or two. Many have played together for a while, on Uprising and township teams. They are an extremely strong team, but not looking as good as usual in this spring league.

Also correct....10 - 0 lead and he's yelling at his very strong team to go harder. Maybe he's a good fit for them though. Parents were still cheering like it'a a championship for that 10th goal, 11th, 12th....Exactly what some families want to avoid when the pick a club.
