The point isn’t about my kid. The point is about your kid. If he played in the 2025 bracket, which he would if he lived on LI, he would be smaller and slower. Just stating the facts.

You all need to get a clue. The term AA is just a way for the club to sell their team to you. There are A teams and B teams. C teams are ridiculous. Those teams never should be formed. If kids cant make an A orB team then they need to practice more at home before wasting their parents money on travel lacrosse.
And parents are fools to pay for 2nd teams in a club. They are almost always horrible and weak.Find a different club if your kid doesnt make the team in one of the top clubs. Plenty of clubs who have one team which end up being a decent B team.
And if you do make the top clubs A team, be honest with yourself about whether your kid is a strong addition to the team. Otherwise your wasting your money for him to sit on the sidelines.
Stop lining these directors pockets. They are laughing at most of you all the way to the bank. Find the right fit for your kid, where he will really play, improve, and enjoy himself.
Good luck.

Igloo beat Express twice... once in the fall and then at Lax Clash. Both wins were without Express' faceoff guy who basically controlled possession in the game they won. Saying 1/4th of the team left for the consolation game is a little much.

So if 1/4 of the team left, they still had 21 to play that game, right?

People are drinking the Express Kool aid around here. That b team they had this season was possibly the worst b team in New York. To pay 4K for that when you can join so many other clubs that are a fraction of the price is because daddy wants to wear his express t shirt.

2nd teams always end up being B. Plus Any fringe A/B player goes to top team(Carry 30 plus), and never plays. It works for express. Can not blame them. Its a Money machine.

Sad reality is you spelled Express incorrectly. And Igloo never wins. Town teams beat them regularly.

I'll bite... what town teams are beating Igloo? If you're referring to the B team, there's a possibility.
