Once again why would anyone not want to play the sport. Be on the field have fun and show your skills and get better. No one cares if you are a bench warmer on MnD black vs starting and playing for someone else. Just look at their college committments. Moderate at best for black.

Obviously bottom "7" girls should play elsewhere. Their interest and the club keeping a roster of 25 are not aligned. Should be much more movement of players between clubs all the time under the current climate. Best thing would be a commit by date for players and families post tryout. Great news you joined a team with 25 girls! No thanks. Do I still have time to tryout for another team? Already full. Tryouts are over. If you work hard you can see a 4 min shift per half. Hit the wall. Fees up front.

M&D guarantees your roster spot once you’re in high school. Can’t cut girls. They choose to stay on team knowing they are at bottom of roster. If that’s what the family decides they want to do who are you to tell them they’re wrong?

The commitments on website aren’t maintained or complete. There is no club that has better commitment lists than M&D. Go look at the actual list of top recruits on IL. Many are M&D players and going to top 10 lacrosse schools.

on paper no...but it's the old addition by subtraction mindset. they will feel the loss no doubt but the feel of the team will be better.


Yellow Cards issued to the team should drop dramatically. The above assessment is often true, there are different types of teams out there. Some teams thrive on isolation players, they have a girl or two that can take it to goal and try to carry the load individually, and you know exactly who is beating you player wise. Then there are teams that thrive on ball movement, cuts and feeds and scoring comes from all over and you don't know who is beating you player wise. A team can be successful with either philosophy, but the two at the same time don't mix well. Some players make everyone around them better, some are on their own island and disrupt team play and chemistry and are a detriment to team play.

Im quite familiar with their committments. Moderate for time money and branding

Especially mediocre D3 schools. Save your money and focus on academics

Thanks for making my point. Between black and red only 19 committs. Radford Monmouth Furman Hofstra, Louisville is a commuter school. College Park is a scary place. Guess youre not really into the academic side. There is pro lacrosse.

Those are only the black team commits. Please go ahead and let us know a club that has a better list of commits if you consider these mediocre.

If you're point is that club lacrosse is a waste of money in general and that your money is better spent on tutors go ahead and try and make it. Truth is though, it's easier to get into Stanford as a lacrosse player than it is to get into Maryland as a standard applicant. Nice of you to cherry pick a few schools of the bottoms of the roster and ignore all the Dukes, Stanfords, Princetons, Yales, Georgetown, Hopkins, Naval Academy, BC, UNC, etc

Please enlighten us on who does a better job of getting their girls into top schools year in and year out. Skywalkers does a great job. YJ as well.
