Any good local tourneys for the FALL??? 7v7??

Is it true that Igloo raised their FEE's almost 25%?? What can they be offering or giving away to justify that increase??

$2900 for 4 tourney's?? hope they are to Miami, Vail, Cabo and LA..
I would imagine they lose some kids w/ that price increase. No club is even close to that and after watching them at hofstra, they are very talented but cant win drawers vs the top teams

A couple of their teams in the club have folded already. With those prices the club will have trouble getting players.

The merging rumor has been talked about all Summer. Not sure why a successful club would want take them under their wing.

Most successful clubs already have two teams per age group. What happens to Igloos "A" players? Do they think they are all just walking on to an already established A team at another club, just because the directors cut a merger deal?

Perhaps it's better if the club folds, and then the girls are free try out for whatever team(s) they choose best fits them

I think that Igloo's top 3-4 players could find themselves well suited to YJ or TG A teams, even cracking starting lineup. After that, many others will either wind up un B teams (not the worst, since they may bring in some much needed talent) or Legacy/Empire/Jesters type teams. We'll see

totally! but they are better off going to B+ teams never coming off the field and being the star then warming the bench on YJ or TG ....and they can make a B+ team became an A

Igloo has a couple attackman and a couple middies that could crack starting lineups at YJ or TG, but after that the other 15 will be excellent upgrades for the Legacy and Empires of the world. Its known that the coach ran everything via his kid (great player), but if you didnt oblige then you found your minutes cut..... many kids will be better off playing for other teams

Does anyone know if a merger is definite?? think they only have 2 teams in the whole program, sounds more like a fold then a takeover

PRICE increase of 25% is so ballsy by a program with 2 teams.......... and really only 1 elite team.
Igloo parents better go win nationals and sign up for someones tryouts. many girls are gonna make some other programs/coaches very happy

Good point but I dont think they merge w/YJ?? What does CR want with a 1 team (one elite...2 or 3 total) program??? The 24 team can come over and be a B team, maybe 2-3 girls go to Weiner. The 23 team beats Thorn the past bunch of times, but I still doubt many girls go to YJ.

Where does the 2023 girls go?? probably see a scattered bunch ; some will do what the coach does cause they are from same school district

The last thing Thorns team needs is another Daddy/Mommy coach. Igloo Daddy coach actually knows what he’s doing and so does his daughter. That would not go over well on YJ because those coaches think their daughters shouldn’t leave the field, no way any of those girls are losing their starting spot. Would be a disaster.

I would not call it a merger because Igloo is not a club, they have 3 teams, one of them being good. The top 3-4 girls will go to a top team and the rest will disperse, established teams and clubs don't need full teams coming over. Considering the 2023 team is the only real team they have I assume the other 2 teams will just fold.

I see they will be collecting money for try outs before they make their announcement. Make that money before you get out...lol.

The same thing happened with team 91 last year both coaches left for the YJ a couple of girls went to YJ others went to Elevate and a few went to Empire.

Igloo beats Thorn 6-3 and T3 Elite 17-3
Thorn is 1-1 after beating Elite Orange MD 9-4, funny MD top teams arent as good without their 14 yr olds.
Wright and Jesters 1-1 and both have a shot at make the 4 team playoff
My prediction
Igloo vs Jesters in 1 semi and Thorn vs NXT in the other
Good luck girls
Looks like igloo making statement before they split

Get over yourself with the “MD top team” comment and age discrepancy. Elite lacrosse club is not a top team, MD girls have been playing rec/club since March, and you just need another excuse. Face it, the competition is dismal for a reason “Burnout”! Be sure to hit up Nicola Pizza and get a Nica-boli! That’ll “simmer you down.” Delish!

How did Wright play 2x against the last place team and didn't have to play NXT or Jesters in pool play with only 6 teams in the bracket.

Ine game was a scrimmage in day one to help a team from Minnesota get some playing time for their long flight there. It was a favor YJ stepped up to help a team get experience against actual lacrosse teams. I sense a bit of venom in your voice which is sad. The 7-0 game was a scrimmage of 20 mins they recorded but didn’t count in standings. Yellow Jackets 2022 did same with Cardinals as scrimmage I think. Easy there spew spew

Yeah really paying that money should’ve covered the weather. Odd how all games were played even after 3 hour delay without a minute lost unlike most Tornaments were you’d have had games cancelled and told, Ducks don’t it. I swear nobody is ever happy. Carry on

When are Long Island parents finally going to wake up and realize we don't need to drive the turnpike every weekend to play lacrosse? Igloo vs YJ like everyone didn't see that coming. Spend 4 days in DE and all that money when you could have that game anywhere on LI. I suggest Back of the Cage, a neutral party, hold a Long Island Shootout. This way CR and SS aren't running it and both would attend it. It's a no brainer and everyone talks about how nice it would be not to drive the Turnpike and sleep at home. Plenty of talent at 2023 to make that a competitive tournament. Come on Back of the Cage step up and help out the parents of Long Island.
