That explains why YJ sent so many teams to Nationals. Boost those rankings....... (which really doesn't mean much int he lacrosse world, outside of dollars in their pockets)


except that no 2021 teams played at Nationals.. I agree the rankings are a joke but its not always a YJ conspiracy..

It’s not a 2021 ranking. It’s the club as a whole. The nationals don’t help much as there’s no competition there and part of their formula is who you beat. SW struggles at younger ages as they build their teams. Results of younger teams brings their ranking down. M&D and YJ are typically strong too to bottom. Not sure how Steps is ahead of them however.

Anyone and everyone who has been involved in girl's/women's lacrosse for the last decade knows that M&D and YJ rule the landscape. You can debate which club is 1 and 2 all day, but there is no way any other club is even in the conversation for 1-2. Skywalkers, Hero's, Top Guns are all also are ahead of STEPS, and you can debate the order for 3-5 all day as well. Not even sure STEPS is to be considered in top 10. I have seen dozens of attempts of various rankings of club teams from "internet site sources", many of them highly ranking clubs you never even heard of.

The rankings applied and disclosed objective criteria. So they are accurate for the stated purpose. Sorry it bursted your snowflake bubble of false security.

Come on. Steps typically never plays in the top division at any of the summer tournaments. While M&D, YJ and SW spend the summers beating up on each other, Steps is in a division with TLC, Top Guns, MD United, etc.

There are 2 major championship tournaments in the summer, Lax for the Cure and the Mid-Atlantic Championships.

M&D won 7 divisions between the 2 tournaments
YJ won 2
Monster 2
Steps 1
Heros 1
HOCO 1

US Club Lax included many more than two tourneys and excluded the Mid-Atlantic.

Yes, they include more than two tournaments. And it's ridiculous that they don't include the Mid_atlantic.

But, the championship tournaments are more indicative of where the clubs should be ranked as you don't just have to win 4 games against teams that are fairly equal in talent. Steps can go 3-1 or 4-0 in showcase tournaments because they are playing lesser teams. Meanwhile, M&D, YJ and SW are almost always placed in the same division at showcase tournaments because coaches want to see them playing each other. In the championship tournaments Steps can win their division but typically are outmatched once the playoffs start. (Yes I know they won LFTC 2021 this year but this is a program-wide ranking). No way Steps should be ranked above YJ and M&D. I don't care what criteria you use.

US Club Lax has no association with US Lacrosse, just a site created by a parent. You guys are so gullible and should do some research. The email address for the site is usclublacrosse@gmail....hahahaha.

US Club Lax says otherwise.

Not sure why any parent should waste time with club rankings anyway. It is about your daughters developing into great people and players that can play at the next level. Not just YJ M&D or Steps

Does anyone have any recommendations for quality prospect clinics (in Maryland)? I realize each college typically does their own thing, I'm talking about events where they promote the fact that 10-12 college coaches will be there etc.. Just trying not to waste any money. Suggestions or recommendations ? Thanks.

Don’t waste your money on any clinic if it includes 2023’s.
I would decide what schools your daughter is considering, and then go to their prospect days first.

There are 2 the friday before the Mid-Atlantic championships. One at McDonogh and one at Goals in Catonsville. Both have good college coaches attending.
