There were about 55-60 kids at first day of Express tryouts. A lot of non Express helmets but they didn't appear to be from many travel clubs.

Looking for the right fit for my son. Any word on second (B) Express team this upcoming season. I heard they had no kids and pulled in kids constantly. Feel bad for the boys (and families) on that team.

Seriously considering going to tryouts for Rebels for 2026.
Hagans is head coach.
Very few teans out there with coaches at the level of Hagans.
With everything Rebels is offering, and Hagans as head coach plus they hsve 2 other coaches this could develop into a great team.
Even if its not in the first year one of the top teams, with the coaching its sure to be a decent team and each year will do better.
And I figure this is a chance to get in from the beginning.

Hagans is a phenomenal coach, his assistant is a college coach. Cant beat that staff.

I was the parent who made the original comment.
And I have a 10 year old son who Im thinking of bringing to Rebels tryout.
And other people have been responding to my comment.

Why you find that so threatening that you need to make an ignorant comment, is beyond anyones understanding.

2026 roster for 91 are out.

To 91s credit Orange Storm has only 21 kids on the roster. Looks like they are keeping that team tight which is good. Those kids should get good playing time especially if coaches develop their players so they can play deep. Hoping that happens.

2026 Freeze on the other hand is heavy at a 25 man roster.
Not obnoxiously heavy, but a couple too many.
I know people will say there will be peopke who dont accept, but they had a significant showing at tryouts, so anyone who declines will probably be replaced. So expect to see 25 man roster.
How good that team is depends on who accepts.

At $4000 a pop, they can afford to cut a few kids!

Did hear there was a decent number of kids trying out, 50-60. As far as Igloo helmets, if there were "lots", I'm sure they were black (B team). Either way, doesn't mean the talent was anything along the lines of killing it.

just curious, by what standard or assessment are you using to determine that this age group on long island is falling behind?

91 appears to have reduced A team roster
Express emails going out today
Igloo calls started Wednesday night
S2S wrapped up tryouts yesterday
Rebels had weak turnout at initial camp... may get leftovers/cuts from the others
Outlaws showed up at Rebels tryouts (see above)

Any ideas on the others? Probably wont know real changes for a few more days.

I was wondering the same. LI frequently beats out of state teams.

The rebel’s selected few kids for each age groups after there “pretryout camp”. So essentially it was tryout to get the best kids before they went to other clubs

Let's all be real here. After Express Haugen, 91 Orange, and Igloo the competition died down greatly on L.I.. Legacy was very competitive with those teams last year but were not around this past season. Not sure what happened there. Outlaws, Empire, Moose, Mama's etc were decent but did not play outside their comfort zones which is expected because losing games = losing kids, which = losing $$$

Bottom line is this.

These boys are 10 years old.

Some are "elite" now and will progress
Some are "elite" now and will regress
Some are developing and will thrive in the future
Some have already "peaked" and want to play baseball
Some just want to play town with their friends which is all but gone!

Commit to the level and "club" that you can afford and remember that your dreams are very different from that of your 10 year old son!

It was a pretryout camp, but they said ahead of time they may select some kids from it after. So if there were some exxeptional kids then they were selected early.
That doesnt mean at the actual tryouts, kids who were at the pretryout wont be selected. Just that evaluations on who to select need to be made at that point assessing the skills of all the kids who tryout.

All very good points. Power can quickly shift, even year to year, at this age, with minimal player turnover. Look at Igloo 2026.. seemed to have the dominant team in this age group, and all their best players are still there.. until this spring.. 91 and Express clearly dominated them this year. So you’re absolutely correct- it’s way too early to be booking a ticket to Colorado, for kids going into fifth grade!

There has to be a much bigger difference in price between the A and B team. Last year it was nearly $1000- difference. Your friend must be quoting you last years price for the A team.

I believe you. Just not sure why they would make A and B teams that close on price. Who will even consider going to B team at $3800-. The B team doesnt get the same focus.
