Who would was to be a back up goalie for Chan? Talk about zero plating time!


They took a second goalie from the incoming Chaminade class.


Wrong. Igloo goalie they took.


Right. The one going to Chaminade next year. Not from Crommy’s team.




DID IGLOO WIN A TOURNAMENT LAST YEAR? THE ANSWER IS NO.


So WHY are you asking if you know the answer????

No need. If your son has a desire to play in HS and beyond... are you with a club that can help him achieve his goals? It’s that simple at this age. He has to want it as well. No fortnight 8 hours a day, replace an hour or two with wall ball, push ups, pull ups. Sit ups and running. No secret sauce or agility classes needed.

Along with the entire youth travel lacrosse culture. Some charge $40-50/hr for private lessons, tax free! And you know they are making well over the thresh-hold not to pay taxes.


The only way it stops is if we the parents stop paying the outrageous cost of travel lacrosse but we all know the parents with too much money feel their child will be better off playing for a travel team and paying 4k. It has to stop sometime or we will all be paying 6k before you know it!


Too many kids in school teams still cannot catch and throw and have no clue how to get a GB in a scrum. The better players need opportunities to play with kids who have similar skills... travel gets you there. Yes prices are crazy but my kid is not going to get any better playing with kids who have a huge drop off in skill level... at least that is how it is in our school district



Every parent will not boycott playing club so you will see the tuition to increase every year & when the more teams fold (i.e. Bluefish, Dodgers, LI Pride, etc) or get bought out such as the Jesters & Stampede did by 91 among other programs they own, there will only be around 8 key programs around on the island who can then set the marketplace at a figure that will be well over 5k a player... A developmental program/league needs to created like they have in Soccer to have a governing body that is making a small profit to provide different levels of play on a national stage otherwise these private programs will continue to make 40-50k per team which is erroneous even though I am a capitalist and believe these programs deserve to make money however, when they are making 150%-300% profit margins, that's when I think it crosses the line.

But I agree with the other poster with getting private lessons.I want to say that the club coaches don't give the individual attention necessary but it is difficult when managing 20-22 kids & when their jobs are to get the Team prepared with team offense/defense, man-up/man-down, clearing, riding and other schemes so Private Lessons are good for players all any merit..Look at the top pro athletes in the world and still continue to hire a swing coach (golf) (tennis) & many other sports because everyone can enhance their game plus it pushes the athlete beyond their tolerance therefore improving their game.



--------------------------------------

Very well said... funny that my son's soccer trainer (he plays club soccer as well) thought LI Lacrosse programs were far more developed and more organized than LI Soccer programs. He is originally from the west coast

Looking for some guidance from parents that have had sons go through the recruiting process already. Would you have your son play on a AA team as a backup with little chance of playing time during the summer tournament season or play on an A/B+ team as a key contributor that doesn't leave the field? Pros and cons of both?

Thanks in advance!

Valid question.. Here are the pros and cons:
1a) Being a Backup won't help you get your son that much exposure being on a AA team & 1b) Depends which team you are inquiring about b/c not all AA programs go to the 'right' events
2) If you were to have said strong A team then I would have also said depends on the program but if it is an A/B+ team, the likelihood of getting exposure At Least from the D1 Colleges will be very difficult.
3) Considering your son is a 2022 Grad, he still has time and my advice would find a reputable team that attends good recruiting events so that he can get some exposure from the D2/D3 programs OR to play up with the AA team to practice against better competition and then attend individual Showcases where your son can then be sure to get on the coaches radars.

Just my opinion and advice based on what I have gone through

Tough question to answer. Can point out pro's & con's.

Depending on which program your son plays for, it may help to stay with that program and hopefully your son will earn a spot for his sophomore year which is arguably the most important year. Nevertheless, see what your son wants to do because at a lot of these Team Showcases (if the club team your son plays for attends them & good ones), the D1's will most likely glimpse at 2022's while D2/D3's will be looking heavily at the Juniors and some Sophomores because they know their biggest challenge are the D1 coaches.

Nevertheless, attend a few individual recruiting showcases so your son can be seen by a variety of schools.

Coaches are not looking at 2022s this year. Maybe next fall at the soonest.

Interesting Question - the bottom line is your kid has to be seen to be recruited. Being a good practice player on a AA team might be good for their skills but he has to be playing in Tournaments and showcases. I would move to an A Team as long as they are committed to playing in the Big Name Tournaments and Showcases. Don't Panic, colleges coaches are looking at 2020's now and just stating on 2021's.

It's all B.S. and a money grab. Your kid will not get jack [ChillLaxin] for scholarship money even if hes a top 10 player on Long Island. The only reason for all the money we sink into travel lacrosse is hope it will get out kids into a better college. Most of the time it doesn't work ! STOP the madness and stop giving in to the machine !

Yes, there is a lot of opportunity for money in d1 and d2. But you have to be on the field during games. Highlight videos of standing on the sideline doesn’t work. And junk time vs bad teams isn’t the answer. The college coaches know what they are looking at on film and they aren’t watching blow outs at tourneys. After all, the video intro says what club you play for, but yet there is no highlights of your son on man up/man down or vs other top clubs. Time to stop with being a practice player on the best club and find the right club. Otherwise, it’s a waste of time and money and you’ll regret it IMHO.

That sounds about right if it is a expensive private U.

Example: College Expense: $60K
Team has 12.6 scholarships: = $756K
They offer money to 33 of the likely 42 on the roser = $22K
Key is that it is a private school less at a in state public school.
That covers the cost of five season of club ball.

My kid is a top player on a good club team, now a sophomore at a top 50 public. He gets 30k athletic.
