You are a clown. Name the grad year and tournament where a Heros A team played down in a B division? You can’t.

agree on MDU, they are all about appearances and winning t-shirts. should be playing A level, but will stoop to B level to avoid losses.
don't agree on Skywalkers - Blue always plays A level
Redshirts - hard to tell, numbers are always low. 2025 won NGLL B level, but got hammered playing A level over the summer. 24 team was thrown together. i think owner only cares about his 2020 team (daughters team)
LBC - not sure,
HEROs - has got like 3 teams for each level it seems. They will girls play up 1-2 levels for experience, i expect the 2029 team to have 3 year olds.

Heros has 2 teams per division, not 3. And they allow girls to tryout and play a grad year up if they don’t field a team at the players current grad year. M&D does the same, Skywalkers as well.

If MDU got “waxed” playing in the A division during NGLL season, maybe they didn’t belong in the A division and reassessed and chose to play B because they were getting so “waxed”. Did they run the fields and win every tourney they played in as a B team? If they did, then you have an argument. Otherwise, be quiet.

Redshirts played up this summer, not down.

Heros, Skywalkers and M&D will never have their A teams playing in B divisions. Their B teams play up in the A divisions, and thats one of the reasons they are the top clubs. So the original poster knows not of what he is talking about.

So much for a thread on tryouts. The usual A team B team hogwash-get over it . The reality is your daughter most likely will flame out of lax in HS because of the parents .

JMU, Colorado, Delaware, Campbell, Harvard, UMBC (2), Villanova, Mt. St. Marys, Longwood, American, Gettysburg, Queens, Denison, Rhodes, Salisbury, and 2 more I’m not sure of. While not all are top 20, still great opportunities for “B” level talent.

And if your daughter's team wasn't invited to G8 that should tell you something too.


This is the original post that brought up “A” team versus “B” team discussion. It’s a relevant point to make when discussing tryouts. Many parents don’t understand, but players peak at different times. Having 2 teams at an age group allows players to move up/down depending on where they are. It also allows for “B” players to scrimmage/practice with better competition on a more frequent basis.

Don’t be a “Negative Nancy”! Yes, players burn out, but guess what, others continue. How about be positive and provide guidance and reinforcement.

Some teams play up a year as well. This is not boys lacrosse.

It is a developmental team is my guess, If you look under the coaching staff, you will see It states 2029 Prep.

Robinson money grab - striking fear into parents that they have to start so early. Recruiting rules have already had an impact - if you look at how many teams competed in the 2026 and 2027 age groups for tournaments - way down from previous years when comparing relative age divisions. Parents have hit the breaks just like the college coaches have...

But yet, we need 2029s??? Stick to rec and have fun for a couple of years.

It’s most likely SW or Heros. Doubt MD United West has 11 DI commits.

MDU doesn't have true B Teams. They move very few players from the West team to the East team unless someone leaves MDU. They don't want to rock any boats.

Each year the MDU West teams get weaker -they got a big push when they stole(merged) the API girls from East Coast but parents are figuring it out now. The younger groups don't have enough for East and West.

I’m no sure you can call MD United an A level club anymore. The coaching at several levels is suspect, recruiting assistance is subpar, and top girls are leaving rather than joining. The B teams are capable of beating A teams on any given day and frequently do. While it’s a good club, MD United is clearly not at the same level anymore as M&D, Skywalkers, and YJ.

"lesser" clubs have to survive too-M&D won't have much fun playing its red team all year. The sad thing is that players get developed at these "lesser" clubs and then bail on the coaches who actaully got them to improve. It does not take great coaching to take an allstar team and put them out there and let them force to goal.

I noticed on MDU website -if you have accepted a position on another club -you can contact them -so they can poach you away if you are worthy. That is why clubs try to lock in players early. It is a lot like decommiting from a college and another team is illegally persuing the player.

MDU is still by far the strongest club in AA County. So if you live in AA County, that's your best bet.

True, that commissioner (hag) is too busy promoting her own business and (brown)nosing up to the MD United director. Hence the reason why there should be no parent coaches.
