Good luck with Empire 😂😂. The problem with those kids is that they have no place to go. Their parents have burned virtually every bridge conceivable. The kids are decent players, but won’t be impactful on a better team; therefore, why would a coach disrupt team chemistry for a player that won’t make them better? They would be role players, which will make the parents angry, which will see them moving on to their next team the following year. And the cycle will continue. The parents ruined their opportunities. They will be going to individual showcases in the coming years.


It’s nit odd that people bash the Turtles. Many of those parents have made a lot of enemies on all of the clubs they’ve played for over the years. They have talked badly about other players on their teams from the sidelines and that doesn’t sit well. Cheer for your child and cheer for your team. But, don’t insult other kids because the play over your son. That’s plain unacceptable and the reason no one likes them.

In addition, we didn't have to lock our car doors at practice this year, and see the one father walk the sidelines with a lacrosse stick during the game while constantly spitting . What a relief.


You posted almost the exact corny joke not long ago and no one bit. Get a life. We get it you don’t like them. Move on.




It’s too good

Your so fed up you cane on a lacrosse message board to discuss

This is due to kids playing too many games in extreme conditions and on top of that all the extras that go with it

Here's a little advice and it is good. Being on The best team doesn't matter if your kid isn't getting or going to get good playing time move on. This is the last year anyone cares about winning starting next year it's all about kids getting prepared to be seen by college coaches through travel lacrosse and their individual HS seasons. Winning T shirt days and pounding your chest are finally gone and that is good

My older son is a 2021and this is so accurate Also feel like the parents care way more than the kids do about the petty stuff While not full go starting next year (summer) college coaches will be poking around 2023 players don't be the parent to ruin it for your kid word travels fast amongst coaches

There are no incoming catholic school kids on that team. Only a few showed up for the tryout. They then gave the team to the Long Beach PAL Coach. He then filled the team with his son and his friends. about 90% of the kids are from Long Beach. He also had his son and his 2 nephews added to the all star game. All these kids were cut in the 1st round of tryouts for the Nassau team. Total Joke!!!

If it's (tournament) is a total joke, what does that say about the parents who are suppose to be leading their kids? Keep running and chasing, all while the money is flying from your pockets!

After the top 25 game, the tournament is a joke. Many kids who make top 25 don’t even attend. NYC team is filled with kids that didn’t make the top 50 game. It’s a paY and play at that point. Don’t look at the allstar game with too much excitement either, they pick them during the second game and it’s mostly, if not all,political. Case in point the parochial kids on allstar game. His son is maybe worse defensemen there.
