Starting this thread to discuss teams other than TG, Liberty, and YJ. When doing searches on teams not as well known, not much comes up. This recognizes not everyone may want to play for these top clubs and may be looking for a different well run organization with good coaching.
You are right my daughter can't travel because we have too many younger kids and can't make that sacrifice. Any decent options that stay on the island.
I think all of them will leave the island at one point or another during the summer. Either to New Jersey or New England. Another option to consider would be if she has a good friend playing for a club and maybe you can send her away with them for the weekend. Or if you have relatives playing with a club. This travel team tournament crap really does take up a lot of time and money during the summers.
Thank you for this post bc I have been curious as well. I live in Northern Westchester and see that majority of the teams mentioned are for the Island. Any thoughts for additional teams in Northern Westchester or Connecticut (near the NY border). Thank you,
There are numerous other programs on the island for those looking. Bengals, Title 9, Ducks, Blaze, Bandits, Blue Devils, Empire, etc. you just have to look. Most of these stay on the Island for the most part. So If you don't have the ability to travel, these are options. Especially for the younger kids.
why would anyone want to play for a club on LI besides YJ, Liberty or TG? The other ones are not very good and have poor PAL parent coaching. Go with one of the top 3, its your safest bet and best use of $$$s
