Uhhh, no. one 6-0 trip to LI in June is enough.


Be sure to pat 14 year old Johnny on the back. He got to beat up kids that are younger than him. You should be a proud Daddy. Still won't see him at the WSYL though.


Will you ever get tired of the same excuse? If Hawks played with 13 and 14 year olds the scores would have been 20-0. It’s not like the games were blowouts. Get over yourself.

Is that the same excuse that you use to explain the losses to the Tigers and Laxchusetts? If we lost, they must be older, not better....

Just about every other division championship was won by Team 91. I don't see anyone from MD/NJ/MA/PA complaining about the ages of those teams kids. Just realize that you aren't as good as the Hawks and move on.

Still won't see him at any event that checks birth year. Common sense tells everyone that the Hawks don't participate in an event like that because the teams wouldn't qualify. Enjoy beating the younger teams.

I'm a Long Island dad here and I totally agree with this post. Plenty of 91 teams beat the same teams in different age groups. The bottom line is that the talent pool on Long Island at this age group isn't that deep. It just seems to vary from age group to age group.

Ever think that maybe there are too many clubs in LI and the talent pool is watered down. There were kids on clubs teams who couldnt catch and throw or use their off hand. i'm not sure what you all pay for club ball but some of these kids should just play for their town team

I 100% agree. There are so many options for club teams here on LI, the majority of talent is concentrated to a handful of competitive teams. You also have some quality kids on some B level teams. But they are surrounded by kids who didn't make the other teams and have parents who will just pay to have them play.
The kids who have more talent are going to start making the shift to better teams. The ones who make it will leave where they are and the ones who don't, the parents will eventually get frustrated.
I think you'll see in the next year or two a shift and some of these B teams will start to fizzle out. You can't sustain a club like that.

I'm sure this will be unpopular but age, size or talent isn't the primary issue. The largest factor in favor of Maryland teams playing better in this age group is team chemistry. They play year round together and don't have town teams that they also play for. Most Maryland teams have played at least 30 games as a group this year and practices 60+ times, in some cases 100+ games together over three years at this point in 5th grade. It's hard for any team, even with equal talent to match up with a team that has played that much together.

The gap will close, it always does and alway will. We should all relax and stop having the same arguments. Who cares if they don't go to the WSYL.

I 100% agree that we will never see the Hawks at a tournament where birth certificates are checked. It's never happened and never will.

Check them!!! They are all of age to play in their age group- ESPECIALLY when we are talking about elementary school aged children!! When you get to middle and high that may be a different story and kids surely will be held back for sports by the overbearing over reaching parents but no one is holding their should be 7th or 8th grader back into 5th grade. That’s just ridiculous to even assume.

This is so true...... My son played against the Hawks this weekend and we had 4-6 practices before that tournament. They are very talented, don't get me wrong but the chemistry they have puts them over the top. The team d , knowing where the other guy is or will be, the clears, the cuts and feeds from the attack, and their riding. Their riding was more aggressive and high speed than my oldest son's jv team. That's effort, and getting 5th graders to go that hard on rides is done in practice, lots of practices together.
