Syo down trend began last year and slide will continue back to mediocrity for years to come. Only positive they have going for them is they don't lose kids to the Catholic schools. Not a single grade/age group have they fielded a top team in the last 6 years... despite the great AA's (LOL) influence on SYO lax...

Pequa has built consistent teams across age groups. A program for sure. No challenger in A for forseeable future.

Where and when did you run into these D1 coaches?

During my sons visits in Sept and Oct.


So during your sons visit the coach recruiting him told him they were really good. Sounds like an honest and accurate assessment. I would go with that..

They will be fine these boys have been playing together for years and have been competing against must of these other teams. I do think many people are under estimating this talented group.



I love hearing "these boys have been playing together for years" please tell us in which towns the boys have not been playing together for years.

The varsity coach is an Igloo guy. They'll do very well.

I'm not sure if everyone is aware, but there is currently a NCAA proposal to change the recruiting calendar to allow contact starting 6/15 after 10th grade and visits and offers to begin 8/1. This would change the current date of 9/1 of junior year for all contact. This proposal has been recommended by the NCAA Student-Athlete Experience Committee for all sports but Football, Basketball, Baseball and Hockey. This proposal was approved for a final vote in April by the NCAA Council. This week the ACC has submitted a request to amend this proposal to keep the 9/1 date for lacrosse. This will now also be voted on in April. I'm not sure if most of you agree, but the current 9/1 date has several issues. First off, we are all forced to blindly spend money for our kids to attend camps, clinics, etc. While we can hear if a school has "general interest" some schools don't even offer that much. Allowing contact on 6/15 would make it possible to have real discussions with the coaches to gauge their actual level of interest, where the player is on their list and other useful information. It also provides an opportunity to being to create a relationship with the coaches that will be coaching your child for 4 years. As you all are aware, the 9/1 date does not remove the recruiting pressure on the kids. Coaches still watch the games years prior to that date. If anything the pressure is worse because the kids have no idea where they stand. Moving the visit date to 8/1 also allows the kids to more easily play fall sports. Most soccer, field hockey, football coaches aren't going to be too thrilled with kids missing Friday and weekend practices or even games because they need to go visit colleges for lacrosse. Coaches say they want multiple sport athletes yet pass rules that make it very difficult to play a fall sport junior year.

It has been expressed to me that it would be very beneficial for as many parents as possible to send letters/emails to the chair of the NCAA council prior to the April vote expressing concerns with the 9/1 date and support for the new proposal which is Proposal 2018-93. I am including the email below for the current and incoming Chairs. I hope we as a community can come together and try to make sure this positive change can pass.

Current Chair:
Blake James bjames@miami.edu
Incoming Chair:
Dr. M. Grace Calhoun athdir@pobox.upenn.edu

This would be great for the players if this indeed gets passed. It would allow parents/players to scale where they stand but I can see how this could hurt club programs. But at the end of the day, it's what is best for the parents. Great post and good to see others using this platform in a positive way.

Having a current junior who had to miss Football and more importantly school because the coaches want the recruits to come when school is in session. I think changing the date to 8/1 would be great. Would be able to visit schools that are interested and would not have to miss school.

It's a racket... to miss all that and your HS experience, truly hope it works out for your son. Lax is a bordeerline vehicle as opposed to a fun endeavor for a lot of kids these days.

I hope that all of you affected by this proposal will take the time to write the council chairs. This is an important change and it's actually something that people can make a difference with.

Failing to understand the connection. What does coaching Igloo have to do with the success of a high school program?
