TG plays a very competitive schedule and has a really good reputation. Smith’s are very competitive and want their A teams to win. Four overnight trips so you it’s a big commitment.
Elevate has some really good teams and one of the top programs in Nassau county. They get a lot of north shore kids. Cold spring harbor and Huntington.
Jesters may not have the most competitive teams every year, but that could be changing. Apparently they are putting together a very strong 2026 team and I believe their 2023 is competitive. I’ve heard they really emphasize the player experience and team bonding.
Elevate is awful. We just finished the season there and will not be returning. The coaching is weak. We had to pay for outdoor practices in the spring at Trinity which is just crazy. As a result, several kids from each team don't go as they don't want to pay for practices that all other clubs include in their fee and they didn't get to practice as a team. Everything they do is based on marketing so they can post it online or sell you a shirt. We played in non competitive tournaments. The list goes on. We are considering any other club on LI at this point.
