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.

Almost impossible to evaluate the coaching of an entire club. It depends on the year. It also depends on the ability / personality of your child and how they respond to different coaching styles. Don’t be afraid to ask around!

Agree with your post about travel at a young age. although I’m a hypocrite and my kids play. There is no doubt in my mind that kids gain more at young ages from small group training sessions / clinics etc. It’s a skill sport. The fast kids will dominate PAL and some lower level travel teams, but every kid needs to have the ability to catch and throw.

Jesters are growing. 2025 team is very strong. 2026 team won at Hofstra against no one. They have potential in a few years if they keep parents on a short leash. Talent is ion the 2023 team. Fun to watch. 2024 team also very well coached. Empire also up and coming. Great club to get in on the ground floor. Good program. Both clubs good prices too

Only 17 kids on the Orange Fury Roster. That's a lot of kids not coming back to a pretty competitive team. Does anyone know where they all went? I guess $165 for a try out rubbed some people the wrong way.

My apologies on his spelling. Was a rare positive post on BOC. No offense meant.

He did have a big team this year. He took extra girls who asked to be on his team. Every girl plays and pretty even. Fun team nice parents. My daughter got better and is learning the game and had fun.Enjoyed being part of this team.

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.

$2.3K for 9D1! That’s a big nut.

It includes 8 tournaments & 17 weeks of indoor trainings/practices, but still.
