This is exactly why US Lacrosse is an embarrassment to the sport. They allow this type of favoritism to go on. Just awful! I don’t have a kid in the mix this time around, but I have witnessed the screwing of the most deserved players on both the girls and boys sides too many times. When will US lacrosse realize they are not doing right by the athletes? Disgusting!


It is worse than just the 6 Northwestern girls. Look at her coching staff. 2 UMass girls and 1 Colorado girl. Also, 2 Mass Elite girls not already counted where other Coach was a Director. That is 11 of 23 with direct link to the coaches.


All of the players are very strong no not knocking the players but the connections go further than you mention.... PSU, Syracuse, BC, MD in addition to UNC all directly connected.

I usually do not knock selections but this is pretty bad. 19 of 23... There is no way to remove bias but this situation appears to be over the top. I do not have an answer or a solution to offer.
The players should be proud, they all work hard and they are all strong players who should be congratulated for their effort and accomplishment. No doubt they will do their best and will represent our country well.
Go USA!


I on't be watching this sham. Shame on USA, a joke. Hope you lose




Oh no.....there goes 50% of the viewership

If US Lacrosse wants to be respected, they would not allow the coaches to pick girls on their teams. What is going on is ridiculous and embarrassing. It’s a shame for those girls chosen as well because everyone is talking behind their backs knowing they don’t belong on the team. Just awful for the sport!



You are Pathetic!!! Same thing happens here, on Long Island for school girls, brine and under armour.
Get over it. Now shoe is on other foot and it becomes a big deal. Get lost

The only one pathetic is you! FYI: UA, Brine, and school girls are money making operations. US Lacrosse is supposed to be unbiased. Half the girls on the U19 team don’t belong there. Now that’s pathetic! Sad for the sport, and for the girls. Sadly, even the girls who deserved to make it are not even respected due to the shenanigans. Hot mess, and not helping the sport at all

Looking for advice. There is a parent on our team whose daughter does not play. This parent will denigrate the other players and make snarky comments, all while doing much for the team in terms of support of team events. It is ridiculous that this happens, but it does. What would your response be to the snark? Considering no one wants WW3 on the sidelines and we all have months or years left to spend together.

If you think US lax isn't looking for money you're living in fantasy land, every player on U19 roster is expected to fund raise 10K+ (and that starts before the final cuts) to cover expenses and some parents will go way beyond that to secure a roster spot for their kid. If it's a toss up for roster spots between a bunch of similar players the money will always win the day

tell the coach to give the kid some PT. This aint the super bowl.. Aren’t there blowout games? Don’t understand why coaches don’t give kids PT during blowouts? Like what’s the upside in keeping your stars in other than to pad stats.ACL tear waiting to happen for jerking around. Seriously tho. The stars aren’t getting better. Get your bench some reps and make your whole team better, fam.

If kids are chosen for a team, the kid should play. If the kid wasn't good enough should have been cut. I blame the money hungry clubs packing rosters with 28 kids

This is a college thread, correct?

I suggest you just let it go. Easy for me to say.... Not sure how I would respond if the parent was bashing my daughter...

This is college, not club.

I agree 100% with getting everyone in whenever possible. However, I am not the coach and cannot influence playing time. All I want is advice on how to handle the disgruntled parent on the sideline short of saying, "If your kid was good enough, she'd be in."

At the collegiate level there should be no parent commenting on the playtime of their student/athlete.
