Big 4 HHH (PA)
Express North Lemma (CT/NY)
Laxachusetts Black (MA)
LI Express Haugen (NY/LI)
Prime Time (CT/NY)
Team 91 LI Orange Storm (NY/LI)
Tigers XXVI (MD)


BLC was getting warmed up against the big boys like Saltwater, NXT Philly and True MD last weekend. They should be good to go.



Saltwater is a rec team, True just started practicing and Ive never seen a good NXT team since my 2010


Well....Saltwater beat FCA which competed fine in the Elite bracket. True MD had kids from Looney's, AYLC and others on it. They were not a bad team at all. (Will agree that NXT was pretty bad.)

More than anything, my understanding is that BLC was looking for a local tournament that didn't require travel or overnight stays. With NLF the following week, no one wanted to pay for hotels two weeks in a row. The competition wasn't bad and this was an economical decision. Shore wars would have been fun but there is only so much money to spend on 11-year-olds playing lacrosse.

My friends kid from PA plays on Tigers XXVi. Saw them play against my sons 2026 NJ team last weekend & they crushed us. He says they are a 2026 Philly suburbs team not Maryland or NJ. Lots of big name ex-princeton, duke, maryland coaches. Watched them beat 2 good NJ teams easily & my buddy says they beat teams like fca ne, bbl, legacy, madlax & said they tied express and o/t with hawks, but i dont see that in tourney machine so who knows, never heard of them until this weekend.

Of course, teams that played Elite and lost will play down and win so the parents get the warm fuzzy feeling to shell out another 2k on club lacrosse. The same will go for AAA and AA and so on

Tigers XXVI are a very good and well coached team. I think no one has heard of them because I don’t believe they have teams in any other age group.

I assume that means the Hawks goalie from last year is coming back. He is quite a good goalie and a pretty nice kid.

Question is he playing for the Hawks or another club?

Dumb question maybe, but why would you call a goalie a missile?

Tigers are a good team, they have one 12 year old that's very good plus a good lefty.

12 in 5th grade? that seems like the definition of a holdback.

Wouldn't mind seeing another Laxachusetts vs Hawks final again. The championship game at Young Guns last year was about as well played and exciting a youth lax game as you will find (at 4th grade!). Both teams deserved to win and in the end, there were no real "losers". Great sportsmanship shown afterwards. It would be a tough one to top. - LXC dad

I am so confused how its so difficult to understand why " LI dads " would want there kids to compete on a fair playing field , almost every other sport does it ...LI teams should be commended for allowing there teams to in essence play up against older kids ... competition from all over the country ....YEAH YEAH they are all fifth graders blah blah ,,age ..my wife even said why is this allowed ?? i said its not in world series ..so come down or up and let the kids compete , have fun,,until the sport is fixed we can continue to debate a baseless discussion , BIRTH YEAR REGISTRATION ,,hockey , soccer ..even my basketball league does it ..

Is it only LI/NY that has the younger cut offs for each school year?

August tryout will be interesting this year. You already have unhappy kids who have quit or left, you have parents and lots of sidelines complaining and complaining. Youth sports is out of control
