I would agree but some of these higher level lacrosse teams play daddy ball as well. I would rather my son play on weaker teams than to make one of the top 3 L.I. teams and never get put in the game. Not sure how that is helping your kid. What about the kids who have the skills to play with the bigger dogs, they make the team but not be good enough to make a contribution to the team during game time. Why as a parent would I want to put him on this type of team just for the sake of saying he plays for one of the top 3 teams on the island. Makes no sense. I rather him play than not play.
Not true. That's where you may be fooling yourself. If your son is good, he will play . I have seen it. You are only fooling yourself by saying your child is good enough but wont get playing time. If a kid is good he will Play. The Higher level teams want to win just the same, and the best players will get on the field. I have seen time and time again kids on B teams not getting playing time. So the statement you made can apply to any level. As far as daddy coaches are concerned.

22-24 including 2 goalies. All kids get to play, tougher games they may shorten bench like all teams seem to do. Those teams you need to earn your spot, hope that helps.

In a perfect world the best players would play. But we don't live in a perfect world. I have seen plenty of kids who deserve playing time not get it. If my son is good enough to make the strongest team than he should also be good enough to help make a contribution during the game. Not playing everyone in youth lacrosse is stupid. Or just be honest and tell the parent that their son only made the team because they needed practice players.

I will take playing on a weaker team if it means I can get on the field vs playing on a stronger team and not touching the field any day of the week.

If your kid is on a B team and doesn't get in the game, then you should put your child on a C team or rec team. The point is, your child needs to be on the field to get better and not on the sidelines. You get better by playing not be only watching.

They get better by Practicing and putting in the time on their own, at home.

Express has over the last year filled their team with 2023 boys trying to catch the top dawgs, the same as the do at the 2025 level.
grouping them as top of anything is ridiculous..
Try playing by the rules guys...

You do get better by practicing on your own, but you also need to get better in game situations at real game speed. Can't practice game situations with a wall or bounce back.

Not exactly a loaded A bracket though outside of TB.


Not the point. The point is they put them up to a challenge when they could have played in the B division and ran away with it. The B Division teams were all horrendous.


I could not agree with this statement anymore. What is the point of playing teams you know you can beat. While maybe you don’t want to play the big 4 all the time and get crushed, you have to play up and challenge the kids.
