Dukes National 2024 gets beat by 4 goals against BBL and is out early at Naptown? BBL is a good team but that program and G are a joke! All that money for what? It’s time to pull the plug Ebe.

Dukes Nat'l has talented individual players, they're just lacking chemistry on the field IMHO. You can't win every single game, especially in MD with the likes of Madlax. No need to explain why.

But this used to be DN's bread and butter and they were very good at it. For a long time they showed us that you can throw a bunch of kids with great lax IQ together and they will win.

Please don’t put us in the same conversation as Dukes National’s. Madlax is on an entirely different level.

DN stinks!!!! Trolling for kids at tournaments trying to sell their nonsense. I simply don't understand what value they offer. It's a complete waste of time!!!!

Yup and then G went money crazy and the whole thing tanked massively. As somebody who was involved early on when the 23 team was absolutely dominant (and no DN trolls, my son did NOT fall below the travel line when we separated from the sinking ship), seeing the premier program for a "national team" turn into the utter joke it is now is bittersweet.

We have been in program for 4 years - became friends with some great families, my son has a group of friends outside our state from lacrosse, he has played in some rally cool locations and we have enjoyed it.

Should have consistently played in better tourneys - but when we do we play well - lose to BBL and Hawks but beat Taz, Bethesda, and Express north.

When we have entire core team (which admittedly we don’t always have) I would put them against anyone.

Understand the negativity -not saying cause your kid dropped or anything just saying I understand it

But our experience has not been a “joke”. My kid would do it again.

For everyone's collective experience, what is the ideal age to get involved with a National team (Duke's or others)?

This seems like a legit question. If you live in a hotbed area for lacrosse, you should not play on a National team. Find the best local club you can and stick with friends and good coaches. The national team will only cause conflict (scheduling) and lost time and money. You will need this later for prospect days, showcases. An all star showcase team like UA or the new PLL national team might make sense. The old Brine Lacrosse classic is/was a waste of time. However, if you live in an area that does not have a strong club team I would suggest looking at a national team like Dukes or Legends in 7th or 8th grade. Time invested in very important. Kids can burn out if they do too much too soon. I have seen it happen with the best of players. Think of it like a pitch count and invest the time in the things that provide the best ROI.
