Go to elevate.


Didn't Elevate lose to Liberty this weekend?

So instead of suggesting Liberty you’re going to make sure everyone knows that Elevate lost to them. Great job! It’s not just about winning. But congrats on that win. Shall we compare Libertys full summer record against almost anyone’s?


Are you suggesting that Elevate has a better overall record? Seriously playing in Maine all season!

I’m saying that instead of being snarky toward Elevate. Try being positive about your own club. And no Elevate wasn’t in Maine but thanks for proving why people would do well to avoid your club

Lets look at the commits from Liberty and the college coaches who call DG a friend...


True - part of the recruiting process are the relationships club coaches have with college coaches. DG has those relationships from the time she has spent playing and coaching in womens lacrosse. That is something Elevate clearly does not have as they do not have a director [ChillLaxin] has ever played or coached a womens game at any college level. So yes, those are good relationships to have.

We didnt just play in Maine. We played in Mass as well and all of our Elevate teams won every division in that tournament.

Mass Elite typically plays in Live Love Lax. They got shut out this year and did the Champions Cup instead

Live love lax is also a showcase. Question was why don't they play in Lax for the Cure or MidAtlantic which are championship formats and coaches play to win.

Don't come on here bragging about winning showcase games saying Mass Elite is the clear #1 2021 team in the country when they only play showcases.

Sorry I misspoke. They did Live Love Lax (that’s the one in November) but not Lax for the Cure (in June). They typically do Lax for the Cure but got shut out this year and did Champions Cup instead. I’m not sure I agree with your premise that only winning championship formats counts and teams don’t play to win in showcase tournaments. But nonetheless it was just circumstantial that the team didn’t play in Lax for the Cure this year.

Of course teams play differently in showcases. Everyone has to play half the game. In championship tournaments playing time isn't equal and the better girls play more.

Eh. So then you can make the argument that their team is stronger all around if they win with all the girls playing equal time.

Eh. So is this how you would say which high school team is better? Of course not.

Here is what I know. Based on the many years of doing battle with all the top ten teams, there are 3 maybe 4 teams that I know nearly all the people from all these teams would likely deem as the best. Yes there would be some variation on which team is the best and many opinions, But no one would vote for Mass Elite. Except of course this person on here self proclaiming Mass Elite as clear cut undisputed #1. Plus I bet you it is one parent and surely not the entire team who think this. I’m sure the other parents must be embarrassed at this ridiculous claim. T

Who beat Mass Elite this summer?

The best measure of a high quality club team is a showcase where everyone plays equally. The top 2-3 teams show little to no drop off when they sub and their players are largely interchangeable. I would question my child’s place on the team is she was part of the group that caused the team to lose in a showcase format. Do the top teams even have girls that don’t play or play sparingly?

^^Yes exactly.

But Mass Elite also is the top girls overall for the state, second I guess to Laxachusetts. All the top talent in eastern MA is concentrated in one club. In Maryland and Long Island, there’s 4-5 (more?) very high quality clubs. For a big metro area where lacrosse is strongly on the rise, that’s a big advantage to ME.

What a notIntelligent statement. Of course the top teams have girls that don't play or play sparingly in championship tournaments. You really think YJ, M&D and SW are playing everyone in those games? All these teams have tiers of girls. Showcases every girl plays at least half of each game. In championship tournaments the coaches try to even things out over the weekend and the girls at the bottom of the roster will start and play a lot in the games against weaker teams while the better players sit.

TG kids don't even play in show cases, very sad to watch kids writing college coaches and then sitting 2 out of 4 games - SS should be ashamed of herself
