OUCH.... Someone went there... My guess is that they had something more important to do after driving 3 hours to play in a lacrosse tournament, then play lacrosse.

Word is Integrity director taking HS teams and will retire -and leaving younger teams to TR . That will be a mess. No wonder the early tryout dates .

This time next week most team tryouts will be over! Base your predictions here, how many players will be scurrying to Hero's based on their phenomenal performance this season? How many players will be trying out Monday at one club, Tuesday at another? How quick will coaches be making offers to get players to commit. Let the madness begin

My predictions:

Hero's needs more speed
M&D needs better shooters
Skywalkers needs more depth


NEMS is the team to watch out for in the future.

The big programs like SW, Hero's, M&D always get better. Teams like NEMS is a team that is good at a young age and falls off quick. Show me one good older NEMS team. Ask around on the older NEMS teams. A lot of parents wish they would of left sooner or are now stuck there.

Might be the best prediction going into 2020.

The key is to be on a top team come 9th grade. Wins and losses don't matter. But when you go watch the M&D, SW, YJ, etc high school games the sidelines are packed with top D1 college coaches. The mid-level clubs have a few D3 or low end D1 coaches watching. This weekend at G8 there would be games on side by side fields of 2021 teams and there would be over 40 coaches watching the top teams and 2 or 3 sitting right behind them watching the mid-level teams. Exposure is the most important thing and those clubs offer it.

How do you put your daughter in a position to find the right team when they all tryout in the same two/three day period?

People were moving from that poor (3rd tier) program b/c what TR says will happen and what happens are two different things. Not a ton of communication or response or development of players.

Before we go down the Spalding recent 3rd place success discussion, is that based on coaching or just very good talent at the 2019, 2020 and 2021 level from Anne Arundel?

Here is a piece of unsolicited advice for the administration of M&D .... since you don't seem to believe your team parents that are complaining to you -you should come watch every M&D team that has a parent coach in this final tournament. Bring a clipboard and track how much playing time daughters of coaches and assistant coaches are getting. And then ask yourself: Should that player be starting ? And starting every game ? Should that player be in the ENTIRE game ? What are they accomplishing while they are in the game ? Are they scoring or turning the ball over or missing easy shots ? Are they getting consistently burned on defense ? And most importantly - Who is on the bench while they are in the entire game ? Are the girls on the bench players that could be contributing and changing the outcome of the game ? And are the girls sitting on the bench so that the coach's daughter can play either the entire game or 90% of it ? Please take an honest look at those questions.

If you don't - you while keep finding your players at clinics at Skywalkers and Coppermine and at early tryouts at Heros and Skywalkers.

And my unsolicited advice extends to parents from other clubs considering M&D (or any other club team with parent coaches). Go and watch and see what level the daughters of coaches are and where they fall on the roster and then compare that to the amount of playing time they get and what they do while they're playing. Most times you'll be concerned by what you see.

You nailed it!!! I think so many parents can only judge by wins and loses. They say we are winning games so we must be good. Well it's pretty easy to have a good athlete run the ball coast to coast in 5 thru 7 grade. Defense don't know how to play. My advice to anyone who has a talented daughter that wants to work at a higher level get to a SW, M and D, Hero's team as early as possible. Winning games mean nothing. Heck college coaches usually only stay one half anyways. They could care less what the score is.

Have them contact the directors and practice with the team before tryouts. Sw's does this regularly.

That is if lacrosse is the most important thing and academics is second. You will find out-the key is to get your D in great school and career. You don't need a top club -keep drinking the Koolaid.

That is the dumbest statement ever. I don't think anyone on here is foolish enough to neglect academics. The reality is if your daughter is a good player and a decent student she will have opportunities available that wouldn't be there if she were just a decent student. If she is good at both, then the sky is only limited to what the family can afford in regards to college. From there being a student athlete opens more doors compared to someone not playing sports once they graduate. In addition if they graduate from a top tier d1 or ivy League school the opportunities are endless with the strong alumni ties.
