Don't know, PA poster who has played numerous NJ teams and Shore seemed to be the best of the bunch. They had some pretty dominant middies, if they lost one of them then yea it might be a different team. Never seen BBL,

Thought Blue Star showed some promise as well. I would rank them ahead of Mad Dog or Tri-State Black.

Slow down your 2023 didn't play Igloo, 91 Warriors or S2s and your 24s played 24/25 teams. Brooklyn Crescents show up at town events and don't win. Not saying it wasn't a good showing but come on.

We played the teams we had to play and beat everyone by 7+ goals. I think we would match up well against the teams you mentioned.

Don't make a stupid post about winning a division (Not a Championship) and beating a team that loses to Jackson, NJ rec team 10 - 2. BBL is a good club we get it.

You are clearly a hater. What team are you speaking on behalf of? All that I was stating is the BBL should be considered in the conversation of being one of the Top Clubs in NJ. Not saying that we are the best but from top to bottom, we produce several college commitments and the middle school teams are competitive.

This is great! We need more people like the mom and you posting on the NJ Forum, it's too quiet when we have probably the 2nd most club teams behind Long Island

How do we get a club in NJ to run a tournament that includes all the NJ teams? Should be enough teams to create an A & B bracket at multiple ages? Kid play each other in the Spring but don't see each much in travel.

Will see BBL and Riot this weekend up in Lehigh @ 2022 will let you know how they are.

BBL is from my experience damn good especially with the FOGO they have.

That would be great. I know BBL is sending this 2022 team to the WSYL so I am curious to see how they match up vs the Riot.

Based on the level of the clubs and proximity to you, I would recommend anyone of these clubs: Leading Edge, Tri-State and United Lacrosse runs a solid program but no where near as elite as Leading Edge and a step behind Tristate. Hope this helps & best of luck.

BBL beat Riot handily. Leading Edge was best team and best BBL 6-3.

Leading Edge look suspiciously big - like way too old big.

12 to 14 holdbacks on Leading Edge.

"We wanted you to be the first to know about the forthcoming merger between Leading Edge Athletics, LLC and Team 91 (aka Dynamic Sports Marketing). The new entity will be Dynamic Sports Marketing New Jersey."

How is the merger going to impact Leading Edge? They had a nice program, does becoming another piece in the Team 91 machine hurt them?

I would not let my son play for BBL but they are fielding the most competitive teams in NJ right now. Some of their coaching staff is horrible. Some. Just there to punch a time card. Dopey guys who spend more time on their phone than focusing on the kids. Blue Star was looking to have something very special but they are getting greedy. The buzz has been really bad as of late.

Whoever mentioned the 23 Shore team just gave out a golden nugget.

There's another team which is on my radar but I will keep it to myself. Sorry. Won't let this rabbit out of my hat.

BBL Black 2023 barely beat 2 B level teams at KOTM and lost twice to the only A level team in their division.

Einstein is your little rabbit Mad Dog, Tri-State Shore or LeadingEdge South? Tri-State Shore is Exit 109 only, 23s are good other teams not so great. Mad Dog brings in some great coaches but still young program. Needs to expand their footprint to compete with larger programs. Leading Edge south is a joke. Will be gone once Team 91 sees the product on the field.

I appreciate the kind words but Mad Dog is not on my radar and I was only referring to Shore 23. The best 23 squad in NJ is BBL - but it is barely an A team. All the rest are B and below. Just not enough talent to go around. Sorry.

B and below...how did you come to that conclusion

I'm not saying that there are no A players. There are plenty. Just spread out over a lot of different teams. There are very few true A 23 teams. Unless you can be competitive with 91 Bandits - seriously compete - then you are not an A team. If you can't sit at the table with serious teams from LI or MD then you are just filler for brackets. Just because a coach put a team in an A bracket doesn't mean they are an A team.

I agree but I would argue that in a couple of years, playing in the A division (even though the team is not worthy of playing there), can help players get exposure and it could help those A players play against better talent. But at this point in time (7th grade), it does no good like you said.

I would rather see happy kids. They really don't care who they beat as long as they win. I'm not sure what is to be learned by getting stomped on by a team that practices year round 2 to 3 times a week. A team of NJ hold backs can't even compete against good Long Island teams.

I don't think an Entire Team of hold backs would 'not' even compete against a LI Team...NJ has excellent players and some are just as good, if not better and it is about matchups. There are just too teams spread thin where on LI, the teams are more stacked with a lot more parity at least at the elite level.

Back to the 91/Leading Edge Merger - How is this going to help 91 and/or NJ Lax? IMO, Leading Edge was/is already a strong program so I don't see why they would 1) want to give up stake in their company and 2) how this is going to help build NJ Lax. This is obviously great for 91 as they will now be able to tap into the NJ market strengthening their bottom line, their brand and to help feed their events. Anyone have thoughts about this?

I was intrigued by the press release -- but Leading Edge has such a bad reputation right now. I don't know any strong players who would want to play for their youth teams. It's all about BBL right now - but that will change.

Thanks for the insight. I do agree that BBL is the it club right now and that the acquisition can lead to something good. It will be interesting to see where this goes and what happens.

Have to agree with that. Too bad Brotherly Love is not in the bracket. Would have loved to see how they match up.
