It’s not the girls, for the most part. The best girls are awesome, as are there parents. It’s the middle packers that tarnish the club. Many of them those girls are either friends and family, or insecure, so they have big mouths. Those mediocre girls are whining floppers, with similar parents. They give a bad name to the club. I know them, and have seen this behavior over several years.

If you have such strong feeling, I think you should walk up to any YJ parent and let them know how you feel. IN PERSON. See how that goes.


Maybe he should walk up to the athletic director with the meh daughter who ruined the team? Somebody needs to man up and get the guy out! Members of his own team just like to assume everything will work out, which it is not. YJ in this age group is an embarrassment.

I'm sure the top players are training and continually developing their skills while some of their teammates treat lacrosse as a seasonal sport which isn't the case. The parents like to complain because they believe everyone should get equal play time. You are living in a time where everything is fair and equal everyone gets a trophy. Treat the players fairly not equally. Better players get more play time, if you want more play time train and improve.

We all hate the YJ but, In 7th Grade, lacrosse should be a seasonal sport.. if your daughter is playing lax 4 seasons a year for the next 6 years.. there is a good chance of burn out.
Now Im not talking about a once a week training or a fall ball tourney.. but you have to let them play other sports, and get good at them... a better alternative to full time lacrosse are the non-sport specific "Speed and Agility" training's popping up.

The sibling connection is very strong on the 2023 team want proof look at the 2021 roster.

These comments are so obnoxious on both sides. I hope YOUR dreams of Carolina Blue, Stanford Cardinal, Notre Dame Gold come true for your daughters, but karma has a funny way of flipping the script on life.

Does not mean they don't belong either. You typically see entire families of good lacrosse players.

This is true, but you must have a plan. By this age, we all know who the best girls are. They're the ones that when you see them go on the field, you know you need to be extra vigilant. The opposing team double teams and face guards. The majority of these girls will only get better. As long as they have the grades, they will be heading to ND, Ivy, Duke (UNC is not an option for my daughter, although it is a stellar lax program, not up to par academically). Hopefully, if the hard work continues, dreams will come true!
