Many of the post raise valid points, but the comparison is a little complicated, as this post notes, because clubs like BBL, Tri-State, Bluestar, etc. all have well developed youth programs, LE has always struggled at the youth level. The key for these clubs is to retain the top level players that they developed and not lose them to LE. As these teams continue to excel at the high school level, the kids will not be so quick to jump ship for LE. Also, as noted in earlier comment, the draw of the club director/high school coach is a a very powerful hammerhead.

My son graduated two years ago, was recruited to play in college, and was on Leading Edge. He had fun but I would say there was nothing that club provided that any other club could have. There's no magic club. Just let your kid play and they will be found.

Unfortunately, you can say this until you are blue in the face. So many people think that there is the perfect formula with the right club, high school, showcase, etc. The best player(s) from LE, Tri State, Riot, Bluestar, BBL etc., are all going to top tier division 1 schools. The real issue is grades. If you have lousy grades, it makes the recruiting process a lot more difficult. Look at how many gifted players end up going to lower level D1 colleges because they didn't have the grades for a better school.. College coaches do not want to take a risk on a kid that is just going to be a headache with academics, whether because it hurts the overall team GPA for indexing, or because the kid may end up being academically ineligible.
A real point of view!

Leading Edge 2025 is a real dumpster fire. Program struggling mightily. Got mopped today. Never in any game. Rethinking things.

Dumpster fire is a bit of an exaggeration. They went 3-0 against A level teams on Saturday and 0-3 on Sunday, with 2 of the losses coming against non WSYL teams who have older kids. They lost 8-3 to LI Express, who is likely on age for WSYL. I’m assuming that the team that played this weekend is all on age for WSYL.

Not sure why you're bringing up age. LE has older kids too. They're gonna play NLF teams all summer. It's just gonna be awful. WSYL has nothing to do with any of this. We're out.

It sounds like you think 8-3 is a close game?

I am not the original poster, nor a Leading Edge person, but 8-3 is a close game in my opinion....just saying.

Me neither, but that's not a close game. Not a complete blowout but a dominant win.

You would have said their 22 & 23 teams were dumpster fires in the 8th grade as well. There are a lot of soft and entitled kids, they need to get beat up a little bit in order to grow.

Their 23 team certainly does not have an impressive resume of wins. A few exceptional players, but not running the table in the NLF.

No one runs the table in the NLF at the '23 level and certainly not a team from NJ

Not quite. But it is true that about half of this 2025 team will be cut so the new players could improve things.
