Which is what happened with 91 Ice 2 years ago.
They accepted 28 kids on roster.
Ended up with not enough kids accepting.
Ran through a season undermanned taking peoples money.

Then last year they tried to revive Ice.
Put out a roster, but people already knew about the fiasco from the year before. Most people didnt accept. They were left with no ability to field a team.
And people who did accept were left to figure out last minute to find a team for their kid.

with the ice team, 91 ended up merging the 4th graders(2025) that were on ice with a 3rd grade C team(2026) that didn't have enough to field there team without notifying anyone. complete disaster, talk about non competitive lacrosse. everyone pretty much wasted $3,000 that season. i think everyone bolted once the coaches left.

There was only a handful of 2nd Teams at this age. At least you have a benchmark and should be looking for info on one of these teams first in my opinion. Ask questions and get feedback if your son is not able to make an A team.

Ducks
Express
Legacy
24
Mamas Boyz
S2S
Hitmen (only team, but on the same level)
Outlaws (same)
Recon (same)

First Ducks no longer exist.
Coaches now formed new program out east.

That team will probably be an A- team after tryouts. Good bones. Good coaches.
Same for Igloo. Looking at A- team.
And either of these could be even better. Only time will tell.
Then there is Rebels. New team. But shows real promise, and offers a lot. Has good coaches as well. If they follow through and recruit real talent in their tryouts, then that could be A- team as well.

Okay... but since 2nd teams can be awesome to bad experiences and everything in between. What teams are the 2nd teams or other teams on that level that folks should be looking into so they make the best choice possible. Let’s try to be productive here and make it informative.

For example, Express has a very good core, solid coaching, regular practice and training (extra). Only criticism is too large a roster.

Went to R. U. S. H. tryout. The 2025 had a good turnout but they all had Ducks helmets on so I guess these are the teams that they took.All of the other age groups were light. It looks like only 2 guys left the ducks to start R$sh. I wish all of these programs would just stay together. It always greener on the other side (($$$)).
Outlaws, Legacy and now ducks. Money and lies is what breaks these programs up. Keep the $ out of it and coach our kids. Give us a solid honest program! Good coaches, training off season and tournaments to play. I dont care at this point if we leave LI. W have played plenty of LI teams in NJ and Mass.
Travel lax is getting out of hand.


Then look at Rebels. Thats what they are saying they are creating. A more interactive coaching experience, with evaluations and open communication.
And so far after pretryouts that has absolutely been the case.
It will be interesting to find out more at full tryouts next week on Monday and Tuesday.

Terrible experience with Express B last season, Loaded roster, kids that cant catch or throw. A lot of unhappy parents now looking for another club. They could have a really competitive B team if they wanted one. Seems like it is now a money grab like most of the other B teams.

All I know is Ciazza is a good coach and will be dedicated to 91 Hornets. If the top kids (at the B level) stay from tryouts, that will be a good spot. Just depends who stays. Hopefully not 28. Good luck to everyone

I think what everyone forgets is many of the people who attended the camp went for the camp aspect and eval because it was a good deal. Not all were really serious about going to 91 at all.
If those people are on the B roster they will probably decline.
If any are on the A roster they still may not make the switch.
Then whatever the A team loses they will pull the top players from the B team up.
And then the B team will have weaker kids offered spots on team.
Never a good scenario for B team.

Also you say Ciazzo is dedicated and good coach.
They said the same about OReilly on Express. How has that turned out for Express B team?
Dont live in a fantasy world.
