New Jersey had a full football season unlike most surrounding states. Our team is loaded with football players and hockey players. We had one tourney switch the date on us which created a conflict and then played in one midweek tournament over Veterans Day but played the 2025 bracket. Been grinding every week since August just haven’t had many 2026 games.

Towermen are a good team. But how long will parents put up with being invisible on the tourney scene? Intrinsic problem of being part of a one-off team and not a club. Moreover, what is the plan for the towermen once they get to recruiting age? Are they going to be getting the best advise and support humanly possible to pursue the next level? Hopefully they will, but my guess is the bigger clubs are going to cherry pick the best players out of there with promises of college connections and D1 scholarships well before.

In a side note...using the term "Grinding" to describe youth lacrosse seems like something that would go down on the Maryland board. Let's not turn toxic like those clowns.

Actually they picked up two really good players from bbl and didn’t lose anyone. Lots of hockey and football kids so not much fall action other than practices

If you think you are going to qualify you might want to have your boys put down their hockey sticks, Maryland teams are coming this year!

WSYL in MD...sounds like it's just another tourney now without the gimmick of flying out to Colorado for a family vacation. I guess you can stop at the inner harbor or maybe some filming locations from "The Wire". Other than that, no reason to go that heck hole. I'll cut to the chase. A Long Island team is gonna win it.

On the plus side, you don't have the expense of traveling to Colorado and, unlike many other local tournaments, you get to see a lot of other teams from across the county that would not normally attend a MD tournament, As far as a long island team winning, if that is your concern, probably best not to play in any high level tournaments at that age.

I only mean that the towermen kids involved in hockey should keep playing hockey in the winter (in contrast to the guy who said they should put down their sticks since MD teams are coming). Those kids will be much better served by playing multiple sports in middle school than worrying about who the competition is going to be at a weekend tourney down 95.

Great question. From what I gather, they were a top 20 '26 team pre-covid. There is only a '26 team, no other age groups in their organization. They didn't play in the fall because of football. They aren't playing in the winter because of hockey. They are looking to qualify for the WSYL.

This is top notch BTC self promotion playbook, at least in 2011. 2021 not so much. Go talk to your team moms with this boring nonsense.

Can you explain what the "self promotion" was? and how it relates to 2011 and how it doesn't relate to 2021? What else should we talk about on BOTC? Cricket? Golf? Just let me know so I can recalibrate my talking points.

I’m a towermen parent. We are a not for profit 2025 team started by parents and have professional coaches (no parents). Mostly a north jersey all star team with kids from Ridgewood, Mtn Lakes, Summit, Maplewood, etc . They haven’t lost to a NJ in two years and play all the top AA teams every summer. Only lost to a few teams this past summer, hawks and Sweetlax and maybe one other. Beat Tigers, BBL, NJ express. Havent played LI Express yet. Lots of very strong and age appropriate multi sport athletes. Only 3 out of 24 don’t qualify age wise.
