Can anyone with a older daughter provide some advice on teams at this age (without all of the madness) Also anyone that has been around could provide some advice on Empire (Nassau) vs. Elevate in terms or training, tournaments, the way the origination is ran and just general experience they have had good or bad with both.

Thank you

Run as fast as you can from Elevate...you will find folks who have good experience with DK and Elevate, but I would be willing to bet the ranch that they are in the vast minority...

Thank you very much. If half of what I hear about yellow jackets is true I would prefer to wait to join that wonderful madness.

Can’t speak for elevate but my daughter played for Empire last year and we were very happy, great coaches at this age and my daughter had a blast. Watching her throughout the year, her skills and Lax IQ improved tremendously in my opinion. Looking forward to another year with them as I find it to be well run and the director is always around to answer questions.

So your tuition does not cover your training and uniform/tournament fees? I can understand adding extra training and charging for that but they have to provide basic services as a team

My advice is to go with the program that offers the most practices. YJ, for instance, includes around 10 practices which are nothing. Usually, the coaches do more on their own but aren't getting paid to do it.

Find a program where the girls are going to practice together, a lot, so they can learn the game the right way and move the ball. I've done YJ with my older daughter and it's not a great development environment which is what you need for younger kids, even the "really talented" ones, still need to learn to play the team game.

Anyone catch that email from CR last night? That's not a tone often heard from this organization and makes me think that registration may be down a bit for the 27/28 age group. We don't even have to bring our own balls this year. Maybe we won't even have to turn in the tryout pinnie this time around?

If you have so much disdain already, maybe you should find a new place for your daughter. If she sticks with it, you can be with the club for a long time, why sign up for years of unhappiness, find another option in which you don't have so much disdain for the director. Or are you just the type to complain about everything.

Well said, and lets leave this poor woman alone and stop acting like all her actions are so nefarious. She's gotten more kids into college than the GI Bill and all people want to do is bash her.
