TG is a 2027/28 team this year. They lost by 2 goals. Not taking anything away from Massapequa but "crush"? Cool story bro.

Really?? They are in 4th grade. You really think how the team is now will reflect how they will be in a few years?

My daughter played this year and except for YJ, Jesters and possibly Liberty most of the teams had some 3rd grade players on their roster but all were competitive with each other with the YG team being the head of the class. I am sure a lot of teams will look to keep their core and add maybe three or four girls to the roster. If your daughter has only played PAL you may want to choose a place where you know she will get playing time not just a top team, because they start traveling out of state in 5th and it stinks to go down to MD spend $700 for the weekend and not have her play that much.

Good luck

I am sure only the directors know that since they have tryouts last, however ask yourself this question how many quality coaches are there to go around? Will you end up just paying for the name? You will decide what's best for your daughter but being on a 3rd or 4th team at a org is not for everyone so make sure you understand what you're signing up for.

Neither Liberty team did very well this weekend. Only beating a 2028 team. If you think any of these organizations are loyal to any kids at this point, you are wrong. These kids are 10. They will be shifting and changing for at least the next 2 years. Everything I have heard about Jesters is that it is a nice organization but will never be competitive. Not sure what that is based off. At this point pick what works best for your family, but don’t be surprised if they get shifted from A to B. So many girls are just learning how to play. People guessing who the best team team is are just spitballing.

Sadly, here is the reality. These tournament directors have organizations by the “you know what”! You’re either in or you’re out! If you don’t meet the standards of the tournament, then you can’t get in!

The end!

If your team is not getting college looks, then bummer.

For a supposedly “elite” girls travel team, the yellow jackets are the most confusing organization. They just sent out an email for fall tournaments to sign up for individually???? Huh?

Lomangino is having separate tryouts for a Nassau team that is a month earlier then the rest of the tryouts?

Everyone is scratching their heads and no one has any clue about what to sign up for. Don’t even get me started about her website. You need a PhD to figure out how to sign up for something

Carol Rose should just hire some staff and get a team website. The yellow jackets are run like free lance girls lax club. Coaches pick and choose practice locations. Each team decides on when and where to do winter. It’s just an weird setup

Fall is by age group, not team. You sign-up individually and are assigned to a team. In general, if enough players from a summer team sign-up, they are all put back together again. The model allows girls to do something else in the fall. Some coaches will work to ensure everyone from "their" team sign-up so they can stay together year round. Two links from the website is all you need, tryouts and tournament sign-up. Tournaments for the fall should have a link up by Thursday am.
