Spooky Nook, "Indoor Championship" Is not a good barometer of the talent of a team. The teams are all going with reduced rosters and missing top players. Just a fun event, nothing more.



So Indoor doesn’t count and nether does Fallball Ol yeah and summer tournament Playoffs don’t count cause there shortened games. Most top teams are rarely in the same bracket for full games so what is a good “barometer” hammerhead!


Full outdoor games with the full team are quite revealing of a teams talent, sad for you that this needs to be pointed out. Are you really that slow?


College coaches recruit players, not teams and after the top six players the rest are interchangeable in most cases, unfortunately most of you won't realize that until it's too late. The top 30 college teams probably have around 1,100 players on their rosters, what percentage do you think are from TG & YJ? The worst teams out there have at least 1-2 kids that can play, so you might beat T3 or the Phantastix 16-4, but guess what someone on those teams will be taking a roster spot from your championship caliber players, but at least you will have a Championship t-shirt at the end of the weekend. Are you really that slow?


In most cases if you play for YJ or TG and are a starter/impact player you will be fine. If you are watching the games you will know who those players are they don't need to be pointed out to you. If you are on the YJ/TG roster for whatever reason ( pay/play, siblings in the program, friends and family) you are not automatically going to get recruited because you are wearing their pinney. You need to play to be seen.


Case in point, TG 2020 has 6-7 kids(excluding Hofstra) committed, the rest aren't even playing anymore, they only have one team for the age group - started with 48 players on rosters, finished with 24 and more than half of them won't be playing anyplace special if at all, but they win all their games (no subs in any close games) and you have your championship t-shirts!


For the first few years the 2020 TG team was the top team on LI and in the nation. Started off incredibly strong, if recruiting is the measuring stick of how teams finish, you would have to say this team definitely did not finish strong. Ironically this is the 2023 thread, the only other age group where TGs had a strong out of the gate team, not nearly as strong compared to 2020, hopefully 2023 will finish up strong.

The TG 2020's talent didn't evaporate it moved. Levy was the coach, left to start Legacy and players left with him. A daddy coach who ran a rogue team left to YJ and players went with him. Those players that left are now committed to UNC, BC, Syracuse, Hopkins, etc.I would say they finished strong.

The girls that played on that 2020 TG team are committed to the following schools:
UNC, BC, Hopkins, Virginia Tech, Florida, Maryland , Notre Dame, Syracuse, Stony Brook, in my opinion that's a strong finish

I’m sure a few of them will wind up together in college




SS was a YJ


Exactly, LOL

There was no TG then, but since she created TG, the only other winner is from that club.

A strong finish? They finished at YJ, because they knew the recruiting opportunities would be much better there. YJ 2020 "B" team commit list is comparable to TG 2020 "A" team list - they all left for a reason, if you know any of them you should ask them why they left and you will get an answer you don't want to hear

Ummm...they did not all leave. Your daughter left because she wasn't that good. You should stop posting here where nobody cares. I want to read about 2023s. If you want to wine about 2020s there is another thread for that!

The girl from Massapequa committed to UNC prior to touching the field for YJ. Some left due to the coach starting up the Legacy program others followed the Riverhead daddy coach to YJ he used a top player to land himself a coaching gig. Sounds familiar didn't the Igloo coach just do the same thing.

The Legacy commits for the 2020's are very impressive considering they have always been the third team in this age group. Makes you wonder if Levy is putting more effort in helping his girls get committed than the other clubs.

With practices about to get started, what does the LI pecking order look like? A bunch of 8th graders playing varsity and getting some great experience. Pre season:

TG, till someone beats them
YJ Thorne, always solid
YJ (Igloo) will be interesting
Jesters
Empire
Elevate
Liberty

Can't wait for the fun to begin!

TG has the best players by far...all the girls YJ past up. YJ Iglos is a bust YJ Wright isn't in there I would put them way before Jesters and Legacy before Thorn....just sayin

TG
YJ
Legacy
Igloo (lost players and playing A teams this summer
Empire (beat Jesters last summer)
Jesters
YJ Wright
Elevate
Liberty ( do they have a team in this age group?)

Sounds about right. Top 4 listed Tier 1 then a big drop off
