Did you ask the 91 team about their 16 year old?

You should've said to him that if his sons team was really that good, maybe they should've played up in the AA division. The guy is a typical laxer that lives and dies on his kids accomplishments because he never succeeded at anything (except succeeding at being a lost in life)

2023 were born in 05 so they should be 13/14. So probably half are still 13 and half are 14 considering we are half way through the year and your kid actually started school on time. If your kid is in 7th grade(2024) and is 14 then you should probably forget about travel lacrosse and spend the money on tutors. If you have those crazy parents that hold their kids back in school just for lacrosse then you are in trouble. At this age real talent plays up, not down.

I hear you and agree. Wine gets better with age, but every season parents are becoming worst (behavior). It just doesn't make sense! There is NO way, anyone who has inner peace within him/herself will act out in a disrespectful manner in public, especially around kids.


Plenty of teams with those types of parents, especially when they become critical of the kids on their own team.

At this point if your kid doesn’t start they are the B string. If they are B string on current team they may very well be B string on another. Time to be honest about their skill level.. Every one of these organizations are looking to win games to keep their reputation up so they can continue to bring in $$.

Pretty safe to say you never played sports growing up. I’m guessing anyone reading this site who actually played sports growing up can still remember a handful of kids who were the best in grade 8 and were washed up by 12 grade, replaced with kids who didn’t even play the sport in grade 8. Anyone who tells a kid they can't be any better at anything then they were in grade 8 knows nothing and should be banished to chess club forums - no lacrosse for you!

From inside lacrosse magazine-

TREND #1 - LATE BLOOMERS, FINDING THE NEXT "DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH"
Coaches focus on identifying players with a lot of potential, and then developing them once they get to college. A player's true athletic potential may not be apparent until junior or senior of high school. The best player in 8th grade is not going to be the best player in 10th grade, and he’s not going to be the best player by sophomore year of college. Every athlete will develop at a different speed. Dozens of factors such as skill development, coachability, strength and agility training (to name a few) make every player's growth trajectory different. Scores of successful college players were undersized and under-recruited during freshman and sophomore years of high school, only to blossom their junior and senior years.

Intangibles Matter
Once a player proves that he has the athleticism and skills to play at the D1 level, then the intangibles come into focus. Does the player like to compete every day? What is his work ethic like? Does he want to improve or is he complacent where he is now? It’s the intangibles that will make the difference over a player’s college career. Four years is a long time and there will be challenges every player will need to handle. Also, coaches want to know what the player is like in the huddle, in the locker room and off the field. Coaches seek out players with character and integrity, as they know that will serve their programs well in the long-term.
[/quote]

So keep moving teams till your kid blooms, that’s the answer.

No, the answer is to spend $3000 and stay on a team that practices once a month, plays 3 tournaments with 12 kids(3 of which are coaches kids) getting playing time.

Seems like the lax parents are afraid the $20;000 they’ve spent on travel lacrosse since little Johnny was 5 is not going to be enough to keep little johnny in the starting lineup! If your that football or basketball kid who is bigger stronger and faster than my little Johnny please don’t switch to my team (even though we do have a great coach)!!!! Maybe I should hold little Johnny back 2 years.. Yes that’s the answer!!! smile

LOL re the Illinois team. That is the exact team they brought to the World Series last year who all qualified for the age restriction imposed there. All legit. Kicked LI EXPRESS butt fair and square. It was a romp. That team chooses from the entire state and there is no dilution between 6 teams like LI. The holdbacks may be yet to come as they now enter various private schools but this year there were none, including the beast middie #42. Team has gotten better every year. If you want to point the holdback finger, point it at Laxachusettes. (Long Island Dad).

No it's not the same team. There are several new players. I spoke to an Express father during the game and he said that a few players left the team after last years WSYL run. I have no idea if he was just saying that but I told him that we added a few players after the same run.
