Who else is playing there?


Leg-a-cee, True Blue, Empire are a few teams I've heard

Those are B teams. Express will win the t-shirts again.



So why go into the tournament?

How come no empire kids try out for real A team? Are they happy playing in B tournaments to try for a T shirt? Or simply not good enough?

That seems reasonable given they have a few players that cannot compete in the WSYL due to age ineligibility and they want to field at least 24 kids for that event. 27 is large but not wholly unreasonable given the potential for injuries.


Anything more than 21 or 22 is too many!

This is the Express status quo - half a team subsidizing the other half! Keep laying out those big bucks so you can say your son 'plays' on Express!


Is the original post from an Express parent? How do you know they have taken 30 kids. I am not an Express parent but I know many people on the team and we have discussed team dynamics. Nobody mentioned the team size was expanding considerably from years past.



Well they added players this year, at least 3 of them so unless they got rid of someone they are approaching 30


Heard of at least one of their players on attack went back to his old team

maybe you should have your son try to go to a different team before the start of the season.

Nope. Check the email. Even the kids that played zero minutes in some games are still on roster. Ridiculous. Why they stay for the torture I don't know. Embarrassing for all of us. And now we added 5 more kids? I get we have to defend the title in Denver but still.

What "real" A team??......Last year, the team played in A division for all tournaments......."Good enough you question?"......PLENTY, Just happy with the team, unlike many others. And Yes, they can hang with a majority of the teams out there....
Remember; Colleges don't give a rats [lacrosse] who your little Johnny plays for or tournaments they are in as a 12/13 year old!!....,

Yes my friends son was offered a spot on there third team. Listen I think its nuts Express can care less about that team, but if people are craziness enough to lay out the money Express would be crazy not to capitalize.

I think with Express A showing last year in tournaments and there additions this off season puts them ahead of the Bandits and make them the preseason #1. Anyone want to complete 2-10 or 2-5

Problem is last time they played Bandits won big. This time of the year everyone makes additions and thinks they have the best team. Let the games play out. Express is definitely older
