Who is still holding tryouts in the elite and AAA? My son was cut and now we are scrambling. I’ve heard some have cancelled remaining tryouts. Thanks

I would say Madlax might give you a couple thousand off list but your son is still a bit young for their 2026 team.

Smoke and mirrors as well. Impressive turnout but........

They had a majority of the 2025 sidewinders there
They had a majority of the 2026 diamondbacks there
They had kids from their Baltimore team there to fill space
And, they had a ton of people there for a free lacrosse head

Tryouts were mixed age groups the entire time, as a parent you could not really get a grasp for who might be on your sons future team.

After selections I can tell you what the 2026 team might be from top to bottom:
-An attackman who is phenomenal attacking the cage...but will not keep his head up or pass the ball. It will be a turnover if he can't get a shot off, not a pull out and reset.
-A few strong midfielders from various HoCo AAA teams
-An 0-7 Diamondbacks defense
-A great goalie who has been with a different club every year.

Despite True being a non-parent coached team...with Diamondbacks as the core, and a couple other key members of the team...expect daddy ball and politics to be in full swing.

Recycling kids between the same teams is a bold strategy cotton.
Where exactly is this talent coming from to take over Annapolis. Honest question.


AYLC
Diamondbacks
Bay Dogs
PLC
Green Hornets/Swarm
Sidewinders

True is a good program from the little I have seen so far. They look like they care. But I am very interested to see how they are pulling this talent to take over Annapolis.

I’m glad someone finally said it the talent at the above programs isn’t Elite.
Better luck taking over Rockfish and Sidewinders, Breakers or Koopers

Some people just wish they were Elite

Coach Cotton is with south river and I did not see any south river kids at True tryouts. True has non parent coaches and will take over. Daddy ball in Annapolis will end.

True and 3D will never make successful runs in MD. There is no need for an outside club in the hotbed areas. How is 3d working? These are lacrosse companies based in the midwest and west. These are not clubs. The coaches come and go.

garbage. I think I know way too much about 11 year old goalies. I assume this is the kid who was on the Hawks this year. A good goalie but an even better kid. He was on the Diamondbacks the year before. Rumor has it that the Hawks former goalie is dropping back down to the team - which probably leaves this kid looking for a new team. If the tryouts was diamondbacks heavy, he was probably there.

I assume the Hawks will have a good goalie. If “rocket”, their old goalie, comes back that leaves last years goalie looking for a team. He is good enough to make most teams. Team 91 had two goalies - one I thought was strong. BLC has a strong kid. Folks like the AYLC goalie but I haven’t seen enough to have an opinion. He might be great.

Overall, goalie at this age is still a work in progress.

The best goalie at Napptown was the AYLC kid who played out of his mind against ALL IN - not a half but the whole game

Looney's goalie was better at Napptown Challenge



That is not correct at all. I am the Looney's goalie's (Reid) dad. Rocket and Reid both played well at that tournament and had a lot of fun playing with that team. In the Hawks game, Rocket gave up fewer goals in his half than Reid did. Rocket and Reid are both working hard to get better, which is what its all about at their age.

I stop by here from time to time to get info on other teams and movement of players. Seeing grown ups (if that's what they are) trashing 11-year old kids is distressing although, sadly, not surprising.

I have yet to meet a crappy enough parent to trash talk a goalie, when in reality, if a goalie is seeing a ball, it’s because his defense didn't get the job done and he’s the last one between the ball and that cage.
If a parent is trashing a goalie, then that kid should be put it in the goal for a practice. I bet that tune gets changed.

Good luck to all of the 26 goalies this season.
