It is easy to rise to the top with you look like the CH Middie. He is a superior athlete. Most lacrosse players are 5-8 to 6-0. Most real Blue Chip athletes play football, baseball, BB, hockey, the money sports. That extra year does wonders when your competition is the same size and a year younger in lax. It stinks but holding back works for most players under 6 ft going against other players same size.



He's not successful simply being a superior athlete, he still has to work. The point is, irregardless of where he played when he was 10, in time, he developed into what he was meant to be. Let things happen, and what will be, will be. Most real blue chip athletes play football, baseball, and basketball because lacrosse and hockey aren't played nationwide. Lacrosse and Hockey are confined to certain areas, however, both are growing. Lacrosse is an incredible game, no matter what level you achieve, high school, D1, D3, club, etc. Great people involved, and ask the elite they're advice..... Enjoy the game and let your kid be a kid.


So what you're saying is the guy HIT THE WALL

Can I eliminate my son as a "real blue chip athlete" if he plays soccer and lacrosse. It's not on your list. I need to be sure on how to build my "real blue chip athlete" according to an anonymous source.

You are correct, my mistake, soccer should have been included as well. My response referenced the Blue Chip Athletes (Money Sports) from the original response to the post. Great that your kid is a multisport athlete, how it should be at 10 years old.

I always found football players to be more equiped for the rigors of the game of lacrosse. You can tell the Football players from the soccer players in any GB drill.

You can always find them in the penalty box. This isnt football, you want to run full speed from 10 yards away and blast a kid then go play football. Fastest game on two feet with skill and precision stick work. That's lacrosse. You MD guys think you can bully teams all the time

Soccer players tend to use intelligence and have a higher sports IQ whereas football players are going to rely more on athleticism. It's not a tough debate. To each his own. Good teams will have a mix of both types of athletes.

This is 2026? Kids who play football and lacrosse or lacrosse and almost any other sport are fine. There is not noticeable difference on a lacrosse field between kids who play football and those who choose not to other than when you hear the stunad parent on the sideline giving bad advice because he never played lacrosse.
